The Coming Economic Armageddon: What Bible Prophecy Warns about the New Global Economy by David Jeremiah

Never before have we read such jarring headlines, distressing news analyses, or dire predictions concerning the world's financial future. The American housing market -- or, more sentimentally, the American dream -- began to collapse in 2006, taking with it large chunks of the global financial system. Millions of jobs worldwide have vanished forever. Did Bible prophecy predict this catastrophe? Are there biblical clues to how soon, if ever, a viable, long-term recovery can be sustained? Is the financial collapse just one of several signs that we are living in the final days of Earth's history In THE COMING ECONOMIC ARMAGEDDON, David Jeremiah says we can know the meaning behind what we see in the daily news -- and understand and prepare for living in the New Global Economy.

From one reviewer: At one point, Dr. Jeremiah discusses the "mark of the beast" and what the number 666 might mean. He suggests that 6 is one short of the perfection or Godliness of 7, so that triple 6 is as advanced as man could be (while still not being God) -- "the ultimate in human ingenuity and competence elevated to the point where he thinks he is a god." (p. 148). I wonder...could the Antichrist even be an advanced computer or an "artificial intelligence?" Perhaps a product of man's attempts to play God? Some books I have seen, such as "The Singularity Is Near", suggest that this may be possible within a few decades. There would, of course, have been no way for someone writing in Biblical times to express this idea except symbolically. Obviously, this is not for me to say...but it is something to think about.
