Passing The Buck

March 22, 2023

Share this article:

And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name. Rev. 13:16

We recently wrote about the “Missing Link”(1)—that only a small percentage of Holy-Spirit-enlightened Believers fully understand that all that’s going on today was accurately prophesied 2000 to 2600 years ago.

We KNOW we’re living in the last of the last days before Rapture. And even though Rapture’s a “signless prophetic event,” signs are given in scripture for Believers to know when we’re getting close.

There was a moment in Jesus’ earthly ministry when He chastised those He was teaching for not paying attention to all the fulfilled prophetic signs going on around them.

And He was also saying to the crowds, “When you see a cloud rising in the west, immediately you say, ‘A shower is coming,’ and so it turns out. And when you see a south wind blowing, you say, ‘It will be a hot day,’ and it turns out that way. You hypocrites! You know how to analyze the appearance of the earth and the sky, but why do you not analyze this present time?” Luke 12:54-56

So we are crazy if we don’t Biblically analyze what’s going on around us to make smart decisions in every aspect of our lives.

The Truth About Banks

About a year ago we wrote about what major events to keep an eye on (3)(see chart), one of them being moving toward the Mark of the Beast—the whole world’s money controlled by Satanic forces.

And boy are we moving along at a fast clip! Just like they are doing everything possible to get rid of small businesses, preferring to control a few major suppliers, they’re doing the same with banking.

We have already been told there are only eight banks that will not be allowed to fail.(2)

Bank of America
Bank of New York Mellon
Goldman Sachs
JP Morgan
Morgan Stanley
State Street
Wells Fargo

What this is telling us is that before the Mark of the Beast, they plan to consolidate all banking down to eight banks. That would make it far easier for the government to take over all banking.

Of course, small banks are the engine of America. 70% of commercial banking is through small banks. So it would be a disaster to even consider moving them into the eight large banks. So much for working with your local banker.

This total bank merger will happen, it’s just a matter of time. We just don’t know how much of this we’ll see prior to our electrifying heavenly departure. Is your bank on that list? Asking for a friend.

But what just happened in Switzerland with the takeover of 167-year-old Credit Suisse Bank should make everyone pay attention. They saved the bank by selling it to UBS, the largest bank in Switzerland. But the devil is in the details.

UBS bought it for $3.2 billion. The Swiss government kicked in a line of credit of $7 billion. But the amazing thing they did to make it work was a “bail-in” of $17 billion in bonds.

A “bail-out” is when someone puts money in to cover the losses. But in this case, no one was willing, or maybe able, to bail out the bank. So they used a “bail-in” by defaulting on $17 billion of bondholders’ money. There is very little coverage of this inconvenient fact in the news.

Several billion dollars of those Credit Suisse bonds were purchased by the governments of Saudi and Qatar who had a lot of excess cash from oil sales in the last couple of years. Their investment just vanished. So much for putting money safely away in a Swiss bank account.

You could make the case the Globalists are penalizing those Middle Eastern nations for lining up with Russia's and China’s new monetary system. If they needed cash, that would seem to be the most logical sinister option.

But a lot of those bondholders were just like you and me. Individuals who had some or all their retirement funds invested at 3.2% interest. Then they were told their money was simply gone.

That’s amazing. But it’s not without precedent. In 2012, in what now looks like a practice run for the future, Cyprus banks also did a bail-in to save all Cypriot banks.(4)

Up to $100,000 was supposed to be insured. But to make the banks solvent, they decided to “tax” every insured amount 6.5%. So if you had $100,000 in the bank, your balance changed overnight to $93,500.

For those who had over $100,000 in a Cypriot bank account, the tax was higher—10%. So if you had $500,000 in the bank, it changed to $450,000 overnight. Roughly some 70% of all Cypriot uninsured deposits were from foreigners.

This was done by decree and there was no appeal. Just like there is no appeal for the bondholders of Credit Suisse. And do note the “tax” was 100%. When you put money in your bank it’s owned and controlled by the bank. Just saying.

So here we are in the US now being told that there are 186 more small-to-medium banks at risk of closing.(6) There’s no way these troubled banks can be bailed out…the FDIC used up all its reserve cash on the last three bailouts.

So as the banking crisis continues to play out, there is no telling what they will do to save the banking system. All we know for sure is that we’re well on our way to the Mark of the Beast.

Plan accordingly. The Bible gives some practical advice. Our expression “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket” comes from this Bible verse:

Divide your portion to seven, or even to eight, for you do not know what misfortune may occur on the earth. Eccl. 11:2

Especially since Biden is itching to launch his trackable, traceable central bank digital currency (CBDC).(7) Rumor has it he’s looking at July to implement the U.S. version of a digital currency.(9)

Actually, the USA is late to the game. There are roughly 100 countries that already have digital currencies(8), including China, Ukraine, Sweden, India and European Union.

Most mirrored the successful launch of Nigerian eNaira launched in October, 2021. The eNaira exists via an app alongside Nigeria’s regular Naira currency.

Using the Nigerian eNaira app you can store, send and receive eNaira, assuming the other person or business has the app. However, over 55% of the population of Nigeria doesn’t have a bank account and depends on cash.

But Nigeria pushed on implementing measures that made it hard to use cash. For instance, they removed the legal status of high denomination bills. You don’t think our illustrious government would do such a thing to us, would they?

Hmmmm….well, in 1969 they already got rid of the $10,000, $5000, $1000 and $500 notes to “fight the drug war.” This is interesting in light of the fact our dollar has lost 88% of its value since 1969.

The scary thing about digital currencies is not only that every transaction can be taxed, but that any transaction can be stopped. So whoever controls your eCurrency controls you because they see everything you do.

If the government doesn’t like you for some reason…say they don’t like the fact you’re unva((inated, or because you gave to the wrong political party... they can easily reduce or freeze your digits in a gnat's eyelash.

The e-dollar probably won’t happen overnight. All other countries kept their paper currency in place and brought their e-currency alongside. But we know that’s like the proverbial frog in a slow boil of water.

And there is some push-back from conservatives in Congress. So that may slow it down a little. Again, we know where it ends after the Rapture, we just don't know when the Rapture will happen.

But do realize these trackable, traceable digits cropping up worldwide means we’re a nano-second away from a centralized world e-currency, Biblically referred to as the MOTB that is instituted in the last half of the Tribulation. (For the record, MOTB does not have anything to do with weddings! 🙂

Regardless, Satan wants us fearful. God wants us confident that as we see the Tribulation close, His rescue is closer.

For God has not destined us for wrath [in the Tribulation]…therefore encourage and build up one another. 1Th. 5:9a, 11a

I hope you're encouraged by what all is going on...I am!!! Use us, Lord, to share the truth we know!

Data Reveals Shocking Drop In Workplace Attendance



Labor data analyzed by Ed Dowd shows a shocking 50% increase in missed work days following va((ination. Wow, it's not just deaths causing the labor shortage...new disabilities are ramping up.

See if you can spot the trend...

Russia/China Establish New Reserve Currency

In 2016 we ran an article making the case that the yuan was seeking to become the world's reserve currency. (Read Compass article here) I'm sure there were those who thought that was impossible. But here we are today with Russia and China meeting and signing 14 economic agreements including proposing China's yuan to become the world's trading currency.

Last week the Wall Street Journal ran a story headlined, “Saudi Arabia Considers Accepting Yuan Instead of Dollars for Chinese Oil Sales.” The subheadline explained, “Talks between Riyadh and Beijing have accelerated as the Saudi unhappiness grows with Washington.”

The Saudis have traded oil exclusively in U.S. dollars since 1974 in exchange for security from the U.S. I guess they no longer feel like we can protect them with our cross-dressing army. Or was it our pitiful Afghanistan withdrawal? Or the demise of our dollar? Or... take your pick.


Biden/FDIC Looking At Covering All Banking Deposits



Unbelievable! This would be the last act of a desperate regime. Doing this would sink the dollar...but wait, since he's already in bed with China, isn't that what they want? Hmmm...

Meltdown Coming?

37-Minute Video (watch at 1.25)


This is a fascinating video... and quite scary if you don't have your head screwed on properly. Adams and Quayle discuss the banking catastrophe with a lot of inside information so I found their discussion of where we are mind-blowing. However, they have no peace that the Lord is in control ...and you have to keep in mind they're selling gold and dried food. Don't watch past 37 minutes as that's when they really get into selling gold, satellite phones, etc.

Militarized Healthcare

65-minute video


Well, if the above meltdown video didn't send you screaming from room to room, this one might if you watch the whole thing. Sasha Latypova and Robert Kennedy hold nothing back showing how they used healthcare to drive the coup. Also shows you how late in the game we are.

Why Bible Prophecy Is Important

7-minute video


Since there are several people on our list who unfortunately attend churches that avoid Bible prophecy, this is a short, concise explanation of the importance of Bible prophecy.

“Behold, the former things have come to pass, now I declare new things; Before they spring forth I proclaim them to you.” Is. 42:9 

Quoting the Bible Gets Teacher Fired In Britain



A Christian teacher claimed that a so-called “transwoman” was really a “man in woman’s clothing” in a Facebook post. This prompted authorities to refer him to the UK’s counter-terrorism police for fear he was an extremist. This is coming our way, they're only two to three years ahead of us.

Adams and Yon

55-Minute Video


Mike Adams and Michael Yon, in the Netherlands cover a variety of critical topics. I learned some fascinating new info in this one.

Is 2023 The Beginning Of The New World Order?

17-minute video


Well well, the Trilateral Commission actually declared 2023 the beginning of the NWO. Hm....that's bold. Hey, they work for Satan so maybe they got some inside info.

Next Pandemic Will Be A Doozy

24-minute video


Former CDC Director Robert Redfield should know. On Monday’s broadcast of Hill.TV’s “Rising,” former CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield said he believes that the next pandemic will come not from animal spillover, but “from gain-of-function research or intentional bioterrorism.” And that the next pandemic “will be much more brutal to the world than COVID was.” Well now you tell us.

Lock-down Of All Speech Next Time Around


A complete lock-down of speech is planned using AI, Big Tech, Big Media and, of course, your tax dollars for the next big event...and who knows what they will come up with.

Labs In Ukraine



This is a great Karen Kingston article about why Ukraine was important to WHO and the Globalists/Satanists. Hint, all the mRNA poisons came from Ukraine.


United Nations Are United Against Israel



The UN is 100% from the pit of hell. They hate Israel and everything she stands for. They just passed a resolution calling the founding of modern Israel a “catastrophe.” Good luck when y'all stand before a righteous God. There's a special place in hell for you and your lies!

Va((ines Killed  3-4 Times More than Covid In Europe


Saving the Financial World

1 hour, 40-minute video (start at 60-minutes mark)


Mike Adams has a most interesting interview with Adam Schiff.

Cleveland Study Confirms Increased Risk With Va((ine



Yet another study, this one using over 50,000 patients, PROVES the more shots you take, the more likely you are to contract Covid. This is getting old. How in the world can they continue to push this poison? Unless they want you dead.



Mostly just pics, no links

The Bible says a wise man has many counselors (Prov.15:22; 11:14; 24:6). It also says, "As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another." Prov. 27:17. Great advice but don't miss the fact that this helps you understand who is right and who is wrong. You have to look at both sides, or multiple sides, of a question to guide you to the best answer.

So it's a big deal when Facebook, Twitter, Google, LinkedIn, etc., keep alternative information from being considered. It means we're living in a communist country and are being controlled. If you don't "do what they say," you'll pay the price. So we offer all this additional information each week to give Believers more information as alternative reading.

JPMorgan Chase strategists warned Monday that recession chances have surged amid the banking crisis since the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank.

“The Fed is facing a difficult task on Wednesday, but it is likely already past the point of no return,” JPMorgan’s strategists wrote in a note to clients this week, according to news outlets. “A soft landing now looks unlikely, with the airplane in a tailspin (lack of market confidence) and engines about to turn off (bank lending).”

There seems to be a growing number of people who won't go along again with a lock down. If/when they pull another one, pray a lot for wisdom.

“Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; so be shrewd as serpents and innocent as doves. Matt. 10:16 

I like Epoch for their usually well-researched articles. But I keep seeing things like this that tell me they have poor discernment in things of God.

Well, on the surface this sounds good....

But in reality, this is what we got...

We've quoted Harari in the past...he's a quite-deceived Jew.

So why are Chinese nationals sneaking into the U.S.? Hundreds. I bet they're up to something.

Well, he may not be a Believer but at least he's not brain dead.

If you are a rational and discerning individual, one who considers each medical treatment individually, and you show any hesitation when it comes to vaccines, congratulations! You are now officially labeled an “anti-vaxxer.” According to recent polling data, this means that a vast majority of Americans are confirmed anti-vaxxers, as the booster shots for COVID-19 are more unpopular than ever.

Those opposed to receiving an endless stream of COVID-19 boosters based on cogent reasoning are often met with the retort of “anti-vaxxer.” This reality is now reflected in the updated definition of “anti-vaxxer” in the Merriam-Webster dictionary.

The old definition included “a person who opposes the use of vaccines or regulations mandating vaccination.”

The new definition is “a person who opposes the use of some or all vaccines, regulations mandating vaccination, or usually both.”

So now, to be an “anti-vaxxer,” per the dictionary, one need only oppose receiving some vaccines, for example, annual ever-changing flu shots or numerous and changing COVID-19 vaccine boosters.

Consider that, despite spending billions in taxpayer dollars promoting flu shots and COVID-19 booster shots; polling reflects a majority of Americans do not plan to get either of these shots and hence are dictionary definition “anti-vaxxers.”

Our current reality feels like an Orwellian nightmare where even dictionaries promote misinformation.
