Inflation (creation of currency and credit out of thin air) under James 5:1-6

James, chapter 5, verses 1 to 6:

Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming on you. Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes. Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days [just before the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple in 70 AD]. Look! The wages you failed to pay the workers who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves in the day of slaughter [70 AD]. You have condemned and murdered the innocent one, who was not opposing you.

A study of Matthew 24:1-3; 34-35: And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto Him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of Thy coming, and of the end of the world?-Richard Duke

 

Debasement and Crony Capitalism; Nothing is New Under the Sun

 

Meaning of last days and last time in Hebrews 1 and 1 John 2

 

Hebrews 1:1-2–last days of the OLD COVENANT, not the end of this age

 

The law was fulfilled around 70 AD [destruction of Jerusalem and the temple]–Matthew 5; Matthew 24; Mark 13; Luke 21; and other verses

 

For those were the days of vengeance —70 AD DESTRUCTION OF JERUSALEM AND THE TEMPLE — so that all things which are written were then FULFILLED

 

Look at the events stated in Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21 that occur before the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple–THIS HAPPENED IN 70 AD; AND NOT IN THE FUTURE

 

Matthew 24 and the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD

 

Mark 13 and the destruction of the temple in 70 AD

 

Luke 21 and the destruction of the temple in 70 AD

 

Jesus inside us (the hope of glory)–His Spiritual Kingdom returned in 70 AD (while most wait on His physical return)
