It will soon be time to say farewell to an old friend who has stayed as close as our hip pocket for as long as any of us can remember. At the ripe old age of 230 the United States dollar has entered the final four seasons of its’ life.
The dollar was born on August 8, 1785, when the Continental Congress of our new republic authorized the first issuance. It was born out of a great struggle as America’s founders fought and prevailed against the greatest military power on earth, the armies of King George III of England. In his autobiography, Benjamin Franklin wrote,
The inability of the colonists to get power to issue their own money permanently out of the hands of George III and the international bankers was the prime reason for the Revolutionary War.”
The bankers did not give up though. They continued to lobby for the formation of a central bank to take control over the issuance of the dollar. After 128 years America forgot the warnings of our forefathers and surrendered our currency to the bankers with the formation of the Federal Reserve Bank in 1913.
Since that time the value of the dollar has declined by 97%. They have done a fabulous job of destroying it. Now the remaining 3% is about to go.
In 2011 the Lord started revealing to me future changes in the value of the dollar. Over the past four years He has given me a series of dreams and words revealing pieces of the puzzle little by little. Just in the past few weeks I have been able to start putting these pieces together to see the sequence of events, which are summarized here as four seasons.
Season One – The Dollar’s Final Rally
The first season began in April 2014 and is still underway. This is a season of increase in the value of the dollar. This rally is not due to strength in the United States economy, but due to weakness in the the rest of the world’s economies.
The Lord revealed this season to me in a dream two days before it started in April 2014. In this dream I was standing in front of a big chart showing the trend line for the dollar. I studied the chart and saw the trend was going down so I said, “I see the dollar is clearly a sell.”
When I said that the Lord spoke to me from behind saying, “It’s a buy.”
The Lord has a great sense of humor. He has repeatedly told me, “Buy” at precisely the moment when I am thoroughly convinced it is a sell. I believe He does it that way to help me realize I would be in big trouble without Him. Every time He has told me to buy He has been right, 100% of the time. Yet, despite His perfect record I still struggle sometimes to believe Him because I still think I know a few things (yeah right). When I have listened to Him and done what He said I have made some big profits, but I have also missed out on some big profits by doubting Him.
In April 2014 no one was talking about buying the dollar because its’ value had been steadily declining for about a year. The dollar index (symbol $DXY) had dropped from over 83 in April 2013 to 79.4 in April 2014. The bulls were in hiding and the bears were in charge. However, two days after I received that dream, the dollar started moving up. The upward momentum accelerated in May and June. By July a huge dollar rally was underway, which is still continuing today. The dollar index reached 95 in January 2015 and continues to be very strong.
However, season one is soon coming to an end and the next season is about to begin.
Season Two – Dollar Knocked Down, Euro Knocked Out
The steady rise in the value of the dollar during season one will come to an abrupt end in season two. Season two will arrive suddenly, catching many investors by surprise. It will be a very short season, but will make a huge impact on the world as the dollar gets knocked down and the euro gets knocked out. I have placed both of these events as coming during the same season because I believe they will occur close together and are closely connected. However, they are two distinct events.
Just as God gave Pharaoh two dreams warning him about the coming economic events in ancient Egypt, He also gave me two dreams warning about the coming drop in the dollar. The two dreams are one and the same (Genesis 41:25). Both of my dreams reveal a sudden crash that will happen so fast investors will be unable to react to it. Anyone who is not correctly positioned before it happens will not have time to change positions when it happens. It will be too late. There will be only bitter disappointment for those who are not ready.
In the first dream I was sitting at my computer trading currencies in the foreign exchange market, which is called the Forex. Currencies are traded in pairs and in this dream I was trading the U.S. dollar against the Swiss franc. I had taken a position on the buy side of the dollar, which means I would make a profit if the dollar gains more value than the franc. What unfolded on my screen was a nightmare. I watched the value of the dollar drop straight down very fast and just kept going down, down, down. I was so shocked and stunned by what I saw that I could not react to do anything about it. I felt like my hands were fastened to my desk unable to move. All I could do was sit there in horror as I just kept saying, “No, no, no!”
In the second dream I saw a sudden collapse of the stock market with the financial sector getting hit especially hard. I saw the crash would be orchestrated by what some call the shadow government, the people behind the scenes who are in charge of our financial system. I saw it would happen at a time when the United States government has taken a stand in the world that will be very unpopular in other nations and will cause tensions between nations to greatly increase. I have already documented the details about this dream in another post so you can read more about it here: “Warning: Sudden Economic Collapse Coming in 2015”.
A couple of months after I received this dream I sought the Lord about the timing. He told me, “It is going to come next year (which would be 2015) at a time when there are increased tensions between American citizens.” So the Lord has given two signs to help identify this season. There will be increased tensions between nations and increased tensions between the American people. I suspect both will be related to the same unpopular stand taken by our government.
So why would the shadow government intentionally orchestrate a collapse of the dollar and the stock market? They are doing it to monetize the debt. Devaluing the dollar allows them to pay off our enormous debt with dollars that are worth far less than what they borrowed.
Our federal government is now close to $18 trillion in debt. In theory if you devalue the dollar enough it could get to where the price of one loaf of bread is $18 trillion. Then they could pay off the whole debt with one loaf of bread. The debt would be paid, but the creditors would be furious.
I don’t believe the dollar will be devalued to the level used in that example, but any devaluation will reduce the debt burden and that is what they are seeking. It is a dangerous game of reckless spending followed by reckless stealing from the creditors. It is a dangerous because our creditors include powerful nations like China and they will be furious when this happens.
Christian violinist Maurice Sklar also saw the coming drop in the value of the dollar. He saw the dollar losing 30% of its value, but not collapsing at that time.
“The American dollar is about to lose 30% more of its’ present value. This will be the second drop since the previous 2008 drop of 20%. The dollar will then be worth half of what it was before September 2008. This drop will cause great economic distress upon our nation. The church will be shaken and many will wake up spiritually and cry out to ME. There will be also looting, rioting, and terrorism in our land.”
As the world’s biggest economy, the economic damage done in U.S. markets during season two will have an enormous impact on the global economy. The European economy, which is already in a severe recession, and in some countries a depression, will be forced to re-align. The current European Union will be abandoned and the euro will die a painful death.
The Swiss franc, which has historically been considered a safe haven, will also become worthless. The Swiss are known for their conservative fiscal policies, but in recent years they have purchased large amounts of sovereign debt from other European nations. As a result, the Swiss financial institutions are now so closely intertwined with the European Union that they will not be able to survive the collapse of the EU.
This was the very first event the Lord revealed to me back in 2011. During my prayer time He said to me, “Dollar / Swiss franc, Silver / Gold”. When He said that He allowed me to know what He meant. He was telling me about a time coming when I would need to buy the dollar against the Swiss franc because the Swiss franc was going to collapse. After that would come a time when I would need to buy silver and gold, but mostly silver.
With any investment timing is everything. However, when the Lord revealed these events in 2011 I had no idea when these things would happen. I did not know the collapse of the franc would be preceded a big drop in the value of the dollar during season two. I also did not understand why He was telling me to trade the dollar against the Swiss franc since the franc was considered a safe haven. It seemed to me the trouble in the rest of Europe would drive investors into the franc driving it up in value. It seemed to me it would be better to trade the dollar against the euro. So I asked the Lord about that.
He revealed to me the reason it was better to trade the dollar against the franc is because of the way they are paired. When trading the dollar against the euro the euro is the base currency, which means the value of the pair is defined by how many dollars are required to buy one euro. Therefore when the value of the euro goes to zero there will be no more profits to make from that trade. However when trading the dollar against the Swiss franc the dollar is the base currency, which means the value of the pair is defined by how many francs are required to buy one dollar. So as the value of the franc approaches zero the number of francs required to buy one dollar could go up to infinity. Even a trillion francs will not be enough to buy one dollar when the franc becomes worthless. Therefore the profit potential from trading the franc against the dollar is unlimited and enormous.
So season two begins with a sudden big drop in the value of the dollar, which is followed by the total collapse of the euro and the Swiss franc. The key is to be on the sell side of the dollar when it drops, then get on the buy side of the dollar when the Swiss franc collapses. This will be an opportunity to make big profits for those who are correctly positioned for it.
Season Three – Dollar Weakness Cannot Be Stopped
In the aftermath of the sharp drop in the value of the dollar during season two, the Federal Reserve Bank will take swift actions to attempt to prop up the value of the dollar. Their efforts will have some temporary results, recovering some of the value lost in the crash, but ultimately they will not be able to stop the dollar from losing more of its’ value. A steady flow of bad economic news will cause the dollar to keep going down steadily.
I saw these events in a dream I received in December 2013. In this dream I saw the scenario described above in which they kept trying to prop up the value of the dollar, but it kept going down, down, down. I have already posted the details of that dream in another post so you can read it here: “Civil War is Coming to the United States.”
In that dream the Lord showed me other events that will be happening during this season, which provides us with signs to tell us when we are in that season. The first sign is a very high rate of unemployment. It will be very hard to find jobs. I saw there would be some jobs out there, but many who are seeking employment would not be able to take those jobs due to the mismatch between their skills and the skills required to perform the job. This is what economists call frictional unemployment.
The second sign will be policies put in place by our government that will prevent Americans from capitalizing on even self-employment opportunities. Many of these policies are already in place in the form of regulations created by unelected bureaucrats. So at the same time that the job market is drying up other income opportunities will also be drying up. Thank you government!
The third sign will be a secret war waged between factions within our own government and our own military. The news media will be on board with the government’s agenda to keep the public misinformed during this time.
Terry Bennett also saw similar events coming that align with what I saw happening during this season. He saw news headlines from the future, which included the following:
- Jobless Rate Passes 32 Percent; Expected to Rise
- German and French Currency Unveiled; Others Consider Participation
- New Americas’ Currency Unveiled – Fosters Angry Debates
- Worldwide Economic Confidence Toward U.S.A. Remains Dim
- Dow Flops and Drops to All-Time Lows; Other Markets Tumble as Well
Neville Johnson also saw the events from this season. He saw a time coming when people did not want to hold U.S. dollars so they kept trading them for a newly formed currency from Europe called Eurodollars, which will be formed after the collapse of the euro.
While season two presents big opportunities in the currency markets, season three is the time to start preparing for main event, which comes during season four. So let’s get ready to RUMBLE!
Season three is the time to convert all cash and equities into silver as much as possible. If silver is not available then gold is the next best thing. This revelation was given to me in the second half of the word He gave me in 2011, which I already mentioned above, “Dollar / Swiss franc, Silver / Gold”. The idea is to convert all paper assets into real assets such as silver and gold. Silver will be appreciating in value more than gold so it is the best investment.
Season Four – Death of the Dollar
Opportunities for earning profits in traditional markets such as stocks and bonds will not work in season four. All paper assets, including cash, will become worthless. This will not just be the death of the dollar, but the death of all derivatives, which are financial products that have no inherent value in themselves but derive all of their value from an underlying asset. Derivatives have grown exponentially in recent years, allowing financial institutions to achieve enormous leverage of their assets while also exposing them to enormous risks if the markets crash.
The dollar is actually a derivative because it has no inherent value in itself. It is just another piece of paper that represents an underlying asset. At one time every dollar was backed by gold, but we abandoned the gold standard back in 1971 and have been skating on thin ice ever since.
Bank deposits will not be safe either as the bankers have succeeded in changing our laws to allow bank bail-ins. That means they can legally clean out our bank accounts and no one can stop them. That is why it will be so important to own physical silver and gold and hold them in our possession, not stored in a storage facility. If you don’t hold it, you don’t own it.
After 230 years, the U.S. dollar will finally die. After that everything changes. The American way of life as we have known it will be gone. In its place will come problems that once only existed in other parts of the world, including civil unrest, violence, war, and famine.
The death of the dollar means changes for the whole world because the dollar has been the world’s reserve currency for International trade. In this weakened condition, our economy will no longer be able to support the world’s strongest military force, which means America will no longer be able to police the rest of the world’s activities. As our power and influence recedes the void will be filled by other nations.
Americans today are enjoying the blessings of God passed down to us by previous generations, but we have forgotten God, who is the source of all blessings. We have abandoned His commandments and embraced all sorts of sins, which is a formula for disaster.
Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people. (Proverbs 14:34)
The only hope for our country is to turn away from our sinful lifestyles and cry out to God for His help and mercy. He alone is able to rescue us. Unless we return to Him, the death of the dollar will be only the beginning of our troubles.
