We know that Europe has been the first to implement this Common Market. Over the years country after country in Europe have gradually opened their borders, markets etc till we see this European Union of immense Economic importance.
Rollin THUNDER you mentioned the different regions that are trying to come together across borders etc. This, I believe also will accelerate in the second half of this decade as countries see the perceived benefits of joining & getting greater market access. Driven by multinationals, (& one Worlders) this great economic Common market will as we know traverse the globe.
Already the EU & America have set 2020 for the final date of barriers to come down between them. Who then would want to be left out in the cold?
As with all `Countdown` signs this one is clearly identified in scripture & shows how far along we are till the final completion of the Global Government.
`When he opened the third seal,.....behold, a black horse, & he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard a voice ....saying, "A quart of wheat for a denarius, & three quarts of barley for a denarius;...."` (Rev. 6: 5 & 6)
Here we see a pair of balances, scales which are a measurement of produce. This denotes a market economy. The Common Market apparatus of financial systems, commercial enterprises & multinationals are already working towards centralising the commercial economy of the whole world.
We are already up to the 4th seal today. The plans for a one-world government began centuries ago, not just in our generation. That idea linked with God's Word we could even say God had planned this from the beginning of this world.
The 3rd seal is indeed about economics, but it must be weighed with the information within the other seals of Rev.6 also. And our Lord Jesus in Matt.24 and Mark 13 was giving us information about the seals of Rev.6, so that goes with the information within the seals also, the first one being the most important one.
Rev.6 mentions first about a rider on a white horse that goes conquering. It doesn't say that is the 1st seal, but it is implied. The very first warning Christ gave in His Olivet Discourse was to not allow any man to deceive us. The event order in His Discourse then follows the events of the seals. That rider on the white horse is about the coming pseudo-Christ, the Antichrist, and thus Christ's parallel warning in Matt.24 of not allowing any man to deceive us. But that white horse rider event is not... in order of how those seals occur, for the Antichrist/false messiah does not appear until later in the seals.
In Christ's Olivet Discourse, He specifically warned of a coming pseudochristos (pseudo-Messiah, translated as 'false Christs" in the KJV). See Matt.24:23-26. And He gave the appearing of that pseudo-Messiah as Jerusalem in relation to those events of Matt.24. He said for us to not believe it when others say that pseudo-Messiah is Him when he appears there.
Not only did He shows us that specifically there, but He gave us the blueprint of what Antiochus IV did in Jerusalem around 200 years earlier with the placing of an idol abomination of Zeus inside the 2nd temple at Jerusalem in association with the abomination of desolation prophecy from the Book of Daniel.
So is the coming Antichrist going to be some Mohammed placing a black stone inside a rebuilt Jewish temple in Jerusalem for the last days? Absolutely not. Why?
Because our Lord Jesus specifically warned us of that pseudo-Christ coming to Jerusalem playing Him, The Messiah. Could any Muslim pull that off? Would orthodox Jews believe on a Muslim messiah? Absolutely not!
So it's like I've said before, you might want to check out how God's uses that title of "the Assyrian" for someone else than some flesh man from some Islamic nation.
