Revelation 13:7 “Also it was allowed to make war on the saints and to conquer them. And authority was given it over every tribe and people and language and nation,”

  • The COVID-19 crisis is regarded as a black swan, a once-in-a-century event affecting the entire world.
  • So, what might be next? A Christian financial expert says get ready for something known as gray swan events
  • “A gray swan is an event that is obvious, it’s out in the open, people see it, they know that it is there, they know it is a significant threat, but they tend to ignore it and do nothing about it,” Crown Financial CEO and radio host Chuck Bentley insisted.

    • Digital Currency and a Cashless Society: “Especially with the threat of our actual physical currency may be tainted with the virus. And over time, the Bible warns that ultimately the anti-Christ will control the world through the economy and so, I think we need to be aware that it is moving in that direction rapidly and to do our part to be prepared for that.”
    • Stimulus Payments and Universal Basic Income: “Those types of programs are very hard to stop. It would be like eating sugar for your diet. It feels good for a little while, but it doesn’t do good in the long term.”
    • Skyrocketing Debt Crisis: America’s stunning $30.4 trillion national debt now exceeds the size of the entire U.S. economy and is expected to total 102% of the US gross domestic product by the end of this fiscal year. 
      • A similar trend in Venezuela led to hyperinflation with an overall five-year rate that rose a whopping 53-million percent.
    • Biometrics and Social Scoring: Airlines are pushing for COVID-19 contact tracing and the use of smartphone apps to prove travelers have been vaccinated for the virus. And Bentley said a number of companies are already using social scoring.
    • Speech Police and Cancel Culture: Eventually, such a system could prove dangerous for Americans unwilling to comply with acceptable speech and cancel-culture norms.
