Logician magician, I get your point.
But why is all of this happening just like the book of Revelations says?
You're right. There will be a time when money will be taken away, a time when we will need some sort of mark - a RFID chip, some tattoo etc - to be able to buy or sell in the world market.

All the things mentioned in Revelations was equally as easy to predict back during the time of Jesus Christ when the Roman Empire was around. It had "world currencies", like-minded armies, pagan "God-Emporers", prostitution, class warfare, and extreme social stratification. All it proves is that people have had the same fears for over two thousand years.
To be honest, I personally interpreted Internet pornography as the "Whore of Babylon". After reading Revelations at age twelve, I was freaked out for months, then I started to seeing Dragons in the clouds and I realized that worrying could only make things worse.

Except maybe countries whose currencies are falling off the charts, like Zimbabwe, no one is hunting for a new currency right now. Certainly not the US or China, the ones who would have the most say in such a decision.
The big concern, maybe not mentioned in Revelations, is that there will be a shift from the US$ to something else as the world reserve currencies. As keepers of it since WWII, the US has been able to maintain it's sanctioned pyramid scheme and keep printing more money among the way.

Numerous Countries Have Recently Dropped The Dollar as Their Reserve Currency
In the past couple of years, the following countries have stopped using the dollar as their reserve currency or have dropped their currency's peg against the dollar:
* Norway and some other Scandinavian countries
* Some Balkan countries
* Many East European currencies
The following countries are rumored to be considering dropping the dollar as their reserve currency or terminating their currency's peg against the dollar:
* The Arab Gulf States
* Saudi Arabia
* South Korea
* (and see this)
As Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, and the "Father of Reagonomics", recently said: "The dollar’s reserve currency role is drawing to an end".
The current absence of intense competition does not, however, mean that oil prices will cease to have an impact on global politics. Far from it. In fact, low prices are just as likely to roil the international landscape, only in new ways. While competition among consuming states may lessen, negative political conditions within producing nations are sure to be magnified.
Many of these nations, including Angola, Iran, Iraq, Mexico, Nigeria, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and Venezuela, among others, rely on income from oil exports for a large part of their government expenditures, using this money to finance health and education, infrastructure improvements, food and energy subsidies, and social welfare programs.
Russia's state budget, for example, remains balanced only when oil prices stay at or above $70 per barrel. With government income dwindling, the Kremlin has been forced to dig into accumulated reserves in order to meet its obligations and prop up sinking companies as well as the sinking ruble. The nation hailed as an energy giant is running out of money quickly. Unemployment is on the rise, and many firms are reducing work hours to save cash.
Plunging oil prices are also expected to place severe strains on the governments of Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Venezuela, all of which benefited from the record prices of the past few years to finance public works, subsidize basic necessities, and generate employment. Like Russia, these countries adopted expansive budgets on the assumption that a world of $70 or more per barrel gas prices would continue indefinitely. Now, like other affected producers, they must dip into accumulated reserves, borrow at a premium, and cut back on social spending -- all of which risk a rise in political opposition and unrest at home. Quantcast The government of Iran, for example, has announced plans to eliminate subsidies on energy (gasoline now costs 36 cents per gallon) -- a move expected to spark widespread protests in a country where unemployment rates and living costs are rising precipitously. The Saudi government has promised to avoid budget cuts for the time being by drawing on accumulated reserves, but unemployment is growing there as well.

Well there you have it folks. Even world leaders are openly talking about a one world currency.
This comes as no surprise to me as this was predicted thousands of years ago in the Bible. I'm sure you've all heard of the book of Revelation.
The real question is: How long will people stay in denial?
What will it take for people to realize the one world order has been planned since the foundations of the earth have been laid?

As far as Revelation goes, I think it says the anti-christ will rule for three and a half years. Well woopy doopy to that. Teach the world a lesson in true evil we will hopefully never allow to happen again. Historically speaking this is a very short period of time, so the anti-christ turns out to be a failure don't you think?

This is how it will start. They will promote one world currency as a good thing for everyone. The sheeple will buy right into it and it will become a reality with no fight at all. This will be the first step towards a one world government.
