The Money of the Tribulation: Bitcoin and/or Another Cryptocurrency?

The following article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog. His articles are spot on and his relentless research gives us a glimpse of what clearly may happen in the days ahead. I challenge you to read his article below carefully and then consider exactly what he is saying. Then turn to your Bible and consider how Bible Prophecy is a warning to the clear and present danger America and the rest of the world is facing right now. The days ahead will present many problems and heartaches for the people of earth; if you have not prepared in your heart, mind and soul in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, then in your troubles you may not find any comfort.

Cryptocurrency Chaos: Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum All Keep Surging To New Record Highs With No End In Sight

By Michael Snyder, on Dec 12, 2017

The cryptocurrency revolution is the biggest story in the financial world right now. In recent days I have spent a lot of time writing about Bitcoin, but the truth is that all of the major cryptocurrencies have been on an unprecedented run lately. In fact, some of them have been rising much faster in price than Bitcoin has. So even though Bitcoin is now worth almost 18 times as much as it was at the beginning of 2017, that actually pales in comparison to how fast Litecoin has been rising. Of course not all of these cryptocurrencies will eventually succeed. There are about 1000 different cryptocurrencies in existence at the moment, and most of them will inevitably fail. But for now virtually every cryptocurrency is soaring, and the total market cap for all cryptocurrencies combined is rapidly approaching half a trillion dollars.

Let’s start our discussion with Bitcoin. As I write this, a single Bitcoin is worth $17696.99, and that is absolutely astounding considering that the price was sitting at just about $1,000 as 2017 began.

We have seen the price of Bitcoin double over and over again, and this last cycle only took 22 days. At this point Bitcoin is so hot that people are actually mortgaging their homes in order to get money to invest…

Securities regulator Joseph Borg says he has seen people doing everything from running up credit card debt to mortgaging their homes to pour money into the cryptocurrency.

It’s easy, from one angle, to see why. Bitcoin started out the year being worth $1,000. On Nov. 20, Bitcoin set a new record by passing the $8,000 mark. As of mid-morning Tuesday, it was worth over $17,000. Very few investments double their value in just 22 days.

Of course Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies don’t actually have any intrinsic value at all. They only have value because people think that they have value, and right now we are witnessing one of the wildest “financial manias” in recorded history.

In fact, Bitcoin mania has now actually surpassed the infamous Dutch Tulip bubble of 1636 and 1637 according to one analyst

One month later, the price of bitcoin has exploded even higher, and so it is time to refresh where in the global bubble race bitcoin now stands, and also whether it has finally surpassed “Tulips.”

Conveniently, overnight the former Bridgewater analysts Howard Wang and Robert Wu who make up Convoy, released the answer in the form of an updated version of their asset bubble chart. In the new commentary, Wang writes that the Bitcoin prices have again more than doubled since the last update, and “its price has now gone up over 17 times this year, 64 times over the last three years and superseded that of the Dutch Tulip’s climb over the same time frame.”

Can Bitcoin defy financial gravity and continue to climb higher in price?

We shall see.

Meanwhile, the fifth largest cryptocurrency, Litecoin, has more than doubled in price since Sunday afternoon. And overall, the price of Litecoin has been rising much, much faster than Bitcoin so far this year…

Bible Prophecy Commentary: Blood, Fire and Pillars of Smoke-

The links above are but a sampling of what is transpiring in the dangerous world we now live in. Could it be that we are so close to “Those Days” spoken of in Joel 2 and Acts 2 (see below) that “blood, fire and pillars of smoke” are occurring with greater frequency and intensity?

Blood shed in the insane and demonic killing of one another which is occurring all over the world. Wildfire which is raging again all over the planet with the western US on fire and burning people’s homes and forests. Pillars of smoke in the plethora of volcanoes spewing all over the globe and it seems with increasing ferocity.

These are things to think about in light of Bible Prophecy for the last days – so it was prophesied, so it will be. The question is are these then these things spoken by the prophet Joel? We can’t be dogmatic on it but it is plausible and we  should be aware if nothing else. Are you aware? Do you read and study God’s word? Are you saved?

“And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.” -Joel 2:30 (KJV)

“And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: 20- The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come:” -Acts 2:19-20 (KJV)

And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. ”  -Luke 21:25-26 (KJV)

And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.” -Luke 21:11 (KJV)


It’s Time to Get Serious in Your Faith, and Where You Stand in the Lord: The Time May be Very Short

The Earth is Being Shaken – Nature, Society, Nations, People

“The prudent sees danger and hides himself, but the simple go on and suffer for it.” -Prov 27:12 (ESV)

When you plan for a vacation or trip, you will usually prepare in several ways. You will usually gather maps, destination information, time estimations to arrive there and many times if a long trip you will accumulate provisions to take and provide for along the way. How many times have you started out on a trip not sure where you were going, how to get there nor how long it would take? How much more then should a Christian know their Bible, plan and prepare for what is described as a perilous (2 Tim 3:1-5) and dangerous time (Book of Revelation) ahead according to Bible Prophecy? Folks, this is no joke nor is it just words written in a Book. This is from Almighty God: He doesn’t kid, He doesn’t play, but He is serious and His words always come to pass.  

Many believers go to church every Sunday and often times mid-week and sit there and never hear about what Jesus said is coming. Why? Pastors fail to teach/preach this Biblical truth for fear of offending anyone or they possess little knowledge in this area. Or do we just cover our ears and flee from facing the hard facts of what this world is becoming and it’s now changing at record speed? Perhaps we go only to church to hear only happy and positive things about Christianity… You know so we feel good about ourselves but never hear the real stinging truth about our sin and lack of repentance.

As a result many are not prepared in the heart, mind and soul for what the Bible says will come in the last days.


Friends, those days are here now! If you think I’m nuts then please look around and observe what’s happening in the world. Deceit/deception is here, hate and lawlessness are raging, nature is in extreme birth pains, weather is extreme all the time and just about everywhere, wars are going on, people are killing one another, and Christians are being murdered ruthlessly by radical Islamic beasts. These things are all prophesied for the last to the last days, the days since Israel became a nation in one day (Isa 66:8) in 1948 and Jerusalem was back in Jewish hands – 1967. God’s timeclock started moving again when the fig tree (Israel) budded and nationhood was granted – Matt 24:32.

Things are going to get tough, really tough and if you are not prepared you will likely perish! Yet many will say of this, “This is bunk, fear-mongering humbug stuff!” Really?  Most people, even Christians, can’t be bothered with the thought they would have to prepare for bad times ahead – that it would happen in their lifetimes. They think things are just like they’ve always been and they will just keep dancing with the regular church-going mundane and ritualistic routine: unengaged, head in the sand, oblivious to rising calamitous and dangerous world events. I personally know people that write off the tensions in the world because they can’t handle the bad news. Friends, these people will have a very difficult time as the days grow more grim.

WARNING: Pastor’s – you had better start teaching the whole truth of God’s word and get your flocks prepared – physically, emotionally and spiritually.

“But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.” -1 Tim 5:8 (NASB)


Here is question for the lethargic and apathetic What will you do when a global war breaks out like we’ve never seen before? What will you do when the global economy crashes? What will you do when food gets very scarce? You will have an extremely difficult time making it once things start going south. But what are you doing about it? Something…? Nothing…? Or are you just taking it easy, no worries and thinking things are the way they’ve always been – it’ll all straighten out – relax.

Now is the time now to prepare, not when the electricity goes off or banks crash or society breaks down and riots start.


How will you provide for your family? What will you say to them when the grocery stores are closed and your meager 2 day food supply in your cupboards runs out? No food or water left and they are hungry?

Now is the time people! Buy long-term storage food – freeze-dried (hey, it’s food) and bottled water. Lots of these things. Matches, blankets, a propane-powered camp stove with plenty of extra tanks. The bottom-line is to get prepared. Family and friends … are you listening??

I am sounding a warning klaxon that things we take for granted today – food, water, power, transportation, communications may disappear quickly and without notice. Why do I say this? Just read the news! It’s all over the place. War drums are beating louder and louder from China, Russia, Iran, N Korea, etc. NATO/US are building up forces and equipment along the Baltic states border with Russia like never before.  Russia is moving forces and equipment against these along their border.  Massive forces and equipment are being positioned in S Korea to counter any N. Korea attack. Folks, these facts are glaring and should be red flags for all of us. Physical preparation is necessary but even more critical is our spiritual prep.

The Most Important of Prepping!

Are you and your family prepared spiritually for the days now and ahead, Do they know about Jesus (I mean really know who He is?), how about eternity, you know – heaven, hell? Or are you too ‘secure’ in your own Christian comfort and wisdom to talk about these things? C’mon, now’s the time to answer these questions.

How’s your relationship with Almighty God? I’m not talking about your church attendance or your friends there. I could care less about how frequently you attend. I’m talking about your personal one-on-one relationship with Jesus Christ. Just you, standing alone face-to-face with the Lord. Do you have this relationship? If not, now is the time to get right with Him in your soul – your spiritual person. Are you walking and talking with and to Him … daily? What’s He speaking to you through His word – the Bible?

Let me give you a three question litmus test for your [faith] relationship with the Lord … (1) How often do you pray to Jesus? (2) How about your quiet time just with Him? (3) How often do you read your Bible? One minute a day, 2 mins, 5 min a week, or not at all? If you do these things rarely or not at all then you are a Christian in name only and you had better amend your ways (repent) and get right with Him today. Yes, tough talk, but in our present world we all need this!
