Cyprus and Malta have announced they will officially adopt the Euro as their legal tender by January 1st 2008. Thirteen states of the European Union have adopted the Euro so far:- Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxemburg, the Netherlands, Portugal, Slovenia and Spain. Britain opted out of the single currency when it was first proposed, over fears that adopting a weak currency would harm its economy. But the Euro has gained strength of late, with many foreign nations preferring to trade in it rather than in dollars. I don't know the exact reason why, but I think it is something to do with nations dealing in dollars having to pay an inflationary tax to the Federal Reserve Bank.
But the New World Order and the "end of cash" is not the reason why I am writing this article. What caught my eye was the image that will be printed on the Cyprus Euro - a 3000 year old cruciform idol, according to the BBC website. What is it with the European Union, that it must constantly blaspheme the God of Heaven? In Britain we have the image of our Monarch printed on the coins and notes. In the states that make up the United Kingdom, we have famous scientists, artists, inventors and other people who made a profound difference to our way of life. But in Europe, we have the heads of state, the Pope, famous bridges (apparently a New World Order connotation to that), and blasphemous images - like that of Europa riding the Beast, and this idol mocking the crucifixion of the Messiah. Then the Scriptures came to me of when the Lord talked about money.
Sadly for many who do not serve the risen Lord, money is their god. And what better way to express devotion to their idols, by printing images of their gods on their money? The Bible states that their money will perish with them (James 5:1-3). The United States of America coinage has the inscription on it, "In God We Trust". I like that inscription. But as we have seen with the "Eye of Lucifer" on the back of the One Dollar note, and an inscription in Latin announcing the birth of the "New World Order", the question must be asked, in which God does the nation trust?
