NKJV (Revelation 17: 10) 10 There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time
If the sixth king (according to the census of Revelation) represents the Roman Empire, the seventh king is undisputed the American empire. This former colony derived its power to an enormous military potential. However, this empire will remain only a short time (Rev. 17:10)
America is becoming a problem. For decades it was the stability for Europe in the Cold War, but now that battle has been won convincingly, balance is likely to be hit. With the image of the “axis of evil” America has given itself a license to act as world policeman, and after the attacks of September 11, 2001, America has actually declared war on all the unwelcome elements. (Emmanuel Todd – World Power America).
The current financial situation of the seventh king:
With the printing of paper money there was initially arrested a callable gold supply that represented all printed paper money and could be accessed. Later on, the choice was made for fractional reserve banking. Because the gold was hardly claimed by redeeming paper money this has also been left and there is no longer reserve. Confidence in the currency consists of confidence in the economy, a floating currency follows.
The U.S. debt is about 14,300 billion and the ceiling is on August 2 2011 increased to 16,400 billion dollars. The British newspaper Financial Times reported Feb. 2 2011 that the Federal Reserve, the U.S. central bank, has overtaken China as the largest owner of U.S. debt or government bonds. The Federal Reserve has $ 1600 billion dollars in bonds.
Officially, China is the largest foreign creditor of the United States, with approximately $ 1,160 billion in debt. Japan has about 907 billion government bonds. This huge debt can put pressure on the dollar.
The central banks including the Fed, are practically around the world funded by private bankers. There has been much criticism to the central banks because they have pumped trillions into the economy during the recent crisis of 2008. A statement about the former chairman of the Fed, Mr. Greenspan: “The Fed is an independent agency, there is no government which can overrule actions that we take.”
According to researchers, the credit exposure of the Rothschild’s covers “half the wealth of the world “.
The entire financial system is thus controlled by private bankers.
