The two following verses describes how calloused are the wealthy nation and its trading partners towards human beings. It also demonstrates how far they are from the Spirit of Jesus Christ. Until this present global system collapses, human trafficking will continue. The global society of human robots is doing nothing to stop the abuse of natural humans. “‘Greece, Tubal and Meshek did business with you; they traded human beings and articles of bronze for your wares.” Ezekiel 27:13 and “cargoes of cinnamon and spice, of incense, myrrh and frankincense, of wine and olive oil, of fine flour and wheat; cattle and sheep; horses and carriages; and human beings sold as slaves.” Revelation 18:13 There will be a total economic collapse of the wealthy nation, then soon after that, the global system that governs by the mark of the beast will come to its end. Then Jesus returns. Revelation chapter 17, chapter 18 and chapter 19 covers this exact same topic.
A Practical Example
As an example, I hear news reports of how the United States is wavering in their support of the United Nations. Some politicians want to go full in while others want to pull all out. At the same time, the USA is a powerhouse of an economy. If the economy of the US collapses, it would be catastrophic for the nations around the world. Simultaneously, the United States is hardly a Christian nation, and the jury is still out regarding their standing with the global system that governs by the mark of the beast. Presently, the US is being noted around the world as a nation plagued with more violence and chaos than any other nation. This is an example of how a very wealthy nation could come under the attack by the internal government. The entire economic network of America could collapse through the internal government that controls thoughts, feelings and behavior. Soon after the collapse of the independently wealthy nation, the system that governs by the mark of the beast (the society of human robots) collapses also. The return of Jesus Christ is after that global tribulation.
Description of the Independently Wealthy Nation
Militarily, it is very well decorated with formidable alliances. That is described in verses ten and eleven. But the military can’t save them from economic collapse. The nations of the world helped to build its economic strength, (verses one thru nine). Because of that “strategic” alliance they became an economic powerhouse. You name it and they have it. They are the hub of trade for everything on land and by sea, (verses twelve thru thirty-one). What they don’t have is the testimony of Jesus Christ and they don’t have a favorable relationship with the global and internal government that rules by the mark of the beast. Their collapse is a horrid one. This would definitely be around the time of the global tribulation, which is horrid with violence, scarcity of resources, and flat-out hatred and spite towards Christians. Because Christians refuse to submit to the global system of the human robots, they will be blamed for the world’s problems. They will be persecuted.
Catastrophe for Nations
“Now you are shattered by the sea in the depths of the waters, your wares and all your company
have gone down with you. All who live in the coastlands are appalled at you; their kings shudder with horror and their faces are distorted with fear. The merchants among the nations scoff at you; you have come to a horrible end and will be no more.’” Ezekiel 27:34-36
