The unimaginable changes that are now taking place in nearly all walks of life would have seemed pure science fiction only five years ago, but they are nevertheless taking place at record speed for all to see
By Graham Bridger
I was recently invited to be a guest on Revelation TV’s Late Show where the programme title was named after my 2015 book, ‘The Great Last Days Money Deception’.
The hosts, Howard Condor and Nikki Mills, were particularly interested in how the book’s predictions related to current events.
The big picture
I spoke about the ‘big picture’ – the multiplexity and convergence of world events that have taken place over the past 14 years since the global debt crisis of 2008, and particularly during the last two and a half years during the Covid saga which has resulted, I believe, in moving the world much closer to the historic return of Jesus Christ, in accordance with biblical prophecy.
What was the cause of the financial panic?
Liz Truss and Kwasi Kwateng, our shortest serving Prime Minister and Chancellor of the Exchequer, had proposed what many considered to be utterly extreme changes to taxation involving further vast amounts of quantitative easing (money printing). This came on top of all the money printing that the current Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, had initiated when Chancellor during the Covid crisis.
The Governor of the Bank of England, Andrew Bailey, reacted immediately and the following day The Guardian and The Daily Mail ran alarmist articles stating that the Prime Minister’s proposals would have an unprecedented impact on investment markets. They anticipated the collapse of pensions which would then cause monetary chaos across the spectrum.
All major pension funds have Government Treasury Bonds forming their base of high security and a dramatic rise in interest rates always leads to increases in yields, thus causing the actual value of the bonds to fall.
Most pension fund trustees opt for a ‘balanced’ view of investment which attempts to achieve a 7% average return over the years, with risk spread between three categories: low, medium and high. Treasury and Corporate Bonds form the bedrock of low-risk funds but not so any more in a world of rising interest rates. The 7% per annum growth rate (medium risk) has always been used to calculate clients’ eventual pensions at retirement.
These tsunamis were currently forming and would likely lead to the fall of western society
However, in the low-interest environment in which we have been living for so long, people have been lucky to see 2% to 4% returns which make pension funds potentially illiquid and subject to closure.
The eye of the storm
I explained in my book that I believed the world was, metaphorically speaking, living in the eye of a great storm that would result in a series of powerful changes that would sweep over it like giant tsunamis. These tsunamis were currently forming and would likely lead to the fall of western society.
Further, we were most probably witnessing the birth of a new world monetary system. I mentioned that Christine Lagarde, when Managing Director of the IMF (International Monetary Fund) in 2015, before she moved to be president of the European Central Bank, had gone on record saying that we would need a complete ‘reset’ to occur. This led to much speculation at the time as to what she meant.
However, we are finally able to see that the ‘reset’ to which she referred in 2015 was clearly being planned well before its official introduction by Klaus Schwab, the founder of the World Economic Forum (WEF), in July 2020.
The Great Reset
Acting in partnership with over 3,000 giant corporations and in accordance with the United Nations 2030 Agenda, he announced that “the world needed a ‘Great Reset”. Readers of my previous articles in this paper may recall that the then Prince Charles endorsed the online conference from Highgrove.
The entire world’s systems apparently needed changing and “the Covid crisis had presented a unique opportunity” to do so. Terms like “presenting a unique opportunity” and “build back better” were immediately echoed through the media by world leaders acting in unison.
This new economic and geopolitical agenda, desired by the elites, is now coming into full view. Indeed, specific markers along the way give the game away. Firstly, the desire of governments to implement ‘Covid tracking systems’, secondly, the attempted enforcement of Covid passports and, thirdly, the ID 2020 proposals whose founding partners are the Gates Foundation, Gavi (The Vaccine Alliance), Microsoft, the Rockefeller Foundation and other big corporate players.
But what is the ultimate goal of these elitists? Nothing less than a Utopian world with zero carbon emissions in order to satisfy their global climate change philosophy as outlined in the UN 2030 agenda.
The world is finally moving from illusion to reality
But ultimately, it is the implementation of CBDCs (Central Bank digital currencies) that would, in my opinion, lead to the fulfilment of biblical prophecy as outlined in Revelation 13. The unimaginable changes that are now taking place in nearly all walks of life would have seemed pure science fiction to the average individual only five years ago, but they are nevertheless taking place at record speed for all to see.
Their desire is to organise and control our health systems, all forms of transportation and food supply systems
The purpose of my book was to bring a warning to people of the world that we were finally facing reality, having lived in a world of illusions for so long. The changes, if implemented, would change everything we understood about how the world works.
Our understanding of what is ‘normal’ was a thing of the past. This was confirmed by Klaus Schwab in his ‘Great Reset’ speech when he stated that “it was pure fiction to think that we would return to the old normal.”
The events that have taken place over the past two and a half years have demonstrated the elites’ plans for a utopian ideal which is nothing less than full control over all people in a recreated world of their own imagination. A reduced population will become enslaved to their wishes through the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and Digitalisation.
Their desire is to organise and control everything, including our health systems, all forms of transportation and our food supply systems thanks to the same technology that the Chinese have already implemented to control people’s every move. But the most important aspect of this control is the world’s money system.
The new monetary system – digital central currency – the trap!
Agustín Carstens, General Manager of the Bank of International Settlements, which oversees all the nations’ central banks, said in October 2020 that Central Banks using CBDCs “will have the power to control everyone’s money”, preventing people from being able to buy and sell and, further, “that they will have the technology to enforce it.”

Humanity as we know it is thus erased and the God of the Bible made an irrelevancy. The question is, will people see what is happening to them before it is too late and know what to do?
As the saying goes, you can ignore the facts for so long but not the consequences of these facts.
In his 2018 book, ‘Converging Signs and Rejection of Truth – Are we Ready for the Return of Jesus Christ?’ he considers how current world events are in line with Bible prophecy, with the need to prepare for the return of Jesus Christ.

When should we expect the monetary trap to be sprung?
Only the Lord knows what governments and central bankers (in particular the Bank of International Settlements) will decide to do when.
At this stage, though, I see two things which could affect when the new monetary system takes hold.
Firstly, the Climate Change COP27 agenda has become a major focus since the new Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, took over and announced huge tax increases to pay for the unprecedented levels of debt that have been accrued.
But now we are told that even more money would be needed to pay for ‘reparation’ to poorer countries who have not been able to enjoy our Western standard of living.
Judging by the volume of comments appearing online, the public is expressing considerable outrage at this outlay. Once people start to debate climate change, they are likely to agree that the massive financial assistance offered is going to mean even more tax increases, cuts in pensions and reduced income all while the cost of living rises to the point where many will be unable to survive.
It would be possible to turn people’s money on and off at will if they do not comply
This is why companies like Doconomy are now promoting credit cards (called Do Black) specifically geared to managing people’s carbon footprint. In practice, though, it would be possible to turn people’s money on and off at will if they do not comply with the products and services that they wish to promote. Combined with the concept of CBDCs, we can see how technology can control the whole money system and individuals’ spending habits.
The public is realising that it has been deceived by the mainstream press
Secondly, there has already been a considerable amount of “blowback” following the uncovering of events concerning the Covid lockdowns. The public is realising that it has been deceived by the mainstream press, with a greater awareness of the damage done to the economy by the policy decisions that were foisted on us all during the Covid crisis.
People are fast realising that major changes are taking place which will alter our way of life forever.
As well as the main change involving the formation of a new digital money system (CBDCs), there are the digitisation of the National Health Service, the disruption of supply chains and the destruction of fertiliser required for food production in the name of lowering CO2 and the reconstruction of economies in favour of an “Internet controlled transportation system”.
All this is combined with the attempts by the World Health Organisation to gain complete control over nation states during future pandemics.
These matters are, however, mainly covered by the alternative media and completely ignored by the mainstream outlets. Yet once people are focused on their own personal circumstances and money situation, I know from experience that this will get their attention.
Indeed, it is clear from Agustín Carstens’ remarks that the introduction of CBDCs is much closer than we imagined. Many involved with finance and capital have been extremely surprised by Carstens’ remarks because he stated: “that they will have the technology to enforce the use of CBDCs.”
Other sources indicate that high-tech connections already exist between the West and China and that we are therefore sitting on the verge of the introduction of a Chinese social credit system, which can control the whereabouts of individuals and their spending patterns. It would appear that the speed by which they can introduce digital currency is drawing much closer than maybe they even intended but it would be hard to imagine that such a function would not be introduced by the end of 2023.
How can you plan financially?
Pension planning is a highly complicated area requiring a personalised financial assessment.
Those who have a faith in Jesus Christ must seek the Lord in prayer and present their circumstances openly and honestly to him for guidance.
Everyone is going to have to make different decisions and, as has been pointed out repeatedly over the last 10 to 20 years, any assets which are held in paper form have a liability against them in one form or another; the only assets that can be held and owned directly by individuals are those that can be held in their own possession.
For this reason, gold and silver in the form of bullion coins are being recommended as a means by which value can be held. Others still maintain that property is a useful hard asset, but unfortunately, it is clear from governmental decrees and changes in the law, that attacks can be made on personal property, including through taxation.
Clearly, we are faced with unprecedented circumstances in which many are seeking human advice. No matter how qualified a man may seem to be, the advice is likely to be shallow and probably insufficient.
There is no doubt, that as we press on into the era of complete control through CBDCs, we will eventually face major problems. Lack of food and insufficient energy to keep warm are the two top methods of bringing people to heel to have to abide by the ‘mark’ mentioned in the Bible.
I do receive a considerable number of requests from individuals about their personal financial circumstances and how they should be advised and I always wish to help in some way. But at this stage, I feel I can only point them to the book, ‘The Great Last Days Money Deception’. People can also view recent seminars I gave on this subject via my website.
We are facing circumstances that really stir up emotions
In chapter 9 I outlined some ways to ‘Weather the Storm’ and in chapter 10, I set out 18 different practical measures. Of course, in 2015 we were still speaking of future events, but they provided some ideas that I believe could benefit anyone wishing to get to grips with their real financial position.
But now we are facing circumstances that really stir up emotions and raise the question: “How much faith do I really have in Jesus and believe that he will see me through to the end?”
In my latest book, ‘Converging Signs and Rejection of Truth – are we ready for the return of Jesus Christ?’ I included a chapter called ‘Do we really want Jesus to return?’
I did so both because so many Christians had not been receiving teaching about his second coming for perhaps 30-40 years and also to bring people to face the facts about the life they were living.
Is life on this earth of prime importance or keeping watch for Jesus’ return?
May the Lord Jesus fill us with his wisdom and give us peace as we face our own circumstances and know how to respond according to his will.
