NBC News: As popular as they have become, virtual currencies may soon play an even bigger role in our financial lives. In part over fears that existing cryotocurrencies (which operate independently of governments) will make it harder to detect tax evasion, Sweden, Canada, China and other nations have announced plans to launch their own official virtual currencies. In the case of Sweden, that could come as soon as 2020.

- The road to the destruction of Damascus – Isa. 17: 1,14
- The road to Psalm 83 – Ps. 83:1-8
- The road to Gog and Magog – Ezek. 36:1-6
- The road to Antichrist: Dan 7:23
- The road to global currency Rev 13:16-17
- The road to Armageddon – Daniel 11:40

Russia has a czar so powerful that Vyacheslav Volodin, the speaker of the Russian parliament, summarized this common sentiment by saying, “If there is Putin, there is Russia. If there is no Putin, there is no Russia.”
The US and Israel have powerful presidents (although under constant attack), leaving both nations vulnerable to massive leadership changes.
The EU cheered Jean Claude Junker’s call for a super president: “Europe would be easier to understand if one captain was steering the ship”

“… And the people (Rome) of the prince (Antichrist) who is to come Shall destroy the city (Jerusalem) and the sanctuary (Temple) …”
The road to Antichrist is under construction.
