No sooner is the Thanksgiving Holiday over than we’re served up the latest raw news on the harsh reality of our perilous times:
November 28 – Death for a Hot Deal: At 5:00 am an unnamed worker is trampled to death by bargain seekers at a Wal-Mart who “physically broke down the doors, knocking him to the ground,” a police statement said. “He was trampled and killed in front of me. They took me down too…I literally had to fight people off my back.” A co-worker explained. This Daily News link shows photos of the mayhem on the biggest US shopping day.
November 29 – Citibank Calculates Chaos: One of Citibank’s top bean counters, Tom Fitzpatrick, chief technical strategist, shows what he really thinks is really going to happen in a leaked internal memo: “This gamble was likely to end in one of two extreme ways: with either a resurgence of inflation; or a downward spiral into depression, civil disorder, and possibly wars. Both outcomes will cause a rush for gold.” For additional reading on this theme see this link.
December 1 – Reykjavik gets Revolutionary: In Iceland “several hundred stormed the central bank to demand the ouster of bankers they blame for the country’s spectacular economic meltdown.” On the 90th anniversary of sovereignty, there is anger and frustration. Banks are defunct while prices and unemployment continue to soar. Additional info at this link.
December 1 – Budgeting for Bedlam: Washington Post article announces “Pentagon to Detail Troops to Bolster Domestic Security” reading…“The US military expects to have 20,000 uniformed troops inside the United States by 2011 trained to help state and local officials respond to a nuclear terrorist attack or other domestic catastrophe, according to Pentagon officials.” For more on this see additional article at this link.
Banks and governments are planning for panic, for “domestic catastrophe,” but most are not aware that the panic itself is planned. My article “Barreling Towards Babylon” outlines the big picture. The New World Order agenda is out of the closet and on the lips of many world leaders these days. The Bible shows this reality will come one way or another. It may take military attack for renegade countries and it may take economic collapse for sovereign and free countries, but if it is prophesied in the Bible, it’s guaranteed, one way or another, it will happen.
Britain was reluctant to join the EU and has held out against exclusively using the Euro. But in the present economic crisis, the EU sees Britain as now “closer than ever” to adopting the Euro. At the Nov 15 World G-20 Financial Summit George Bush basically turned US financial sovereignty over to EU regulators and watchdogs without so much as a vote from US citizens. In 2005 Bush signed new bankruptcy laws which made filing for bankruptcy more difficult, especially for the middle class. Later the Bush administration and major lenders ignored many warnings regarding risky mortgage trends years before the economy collapsed. It’s an interesting irony that a black president will preside in the US as political global enslavement measures increase and the US continues to be “sold down the river” by Judas politicians. Obama’s choices for the National Security Team are business as usual; long term CFR members, NWO minions, not real change at all. His own supporters are dismayed even before he has entered office.
When the Great Depression happened in 1929 in the US, the 10 Commandments, the Bible and prayer were still allowed in public schools. Students were taught that there was actually a difference between right and wrong, truth and error, humans and animals. But this present generation knows of no such teaching. It is truly terrifying to think of the resulting civil and government behavior in view of a total economic collapse. In any event, it will be the perfect excuse for martial law. In Matthew 7, Jesus told a parable of two houses. One was built on sand and the other on solid rock. They looked about the same until the storm came and then the differences were obvious. The house on the rock continued to stand and endure, the one on sand crumbled.
As the financial crisis worsens, we’ll see the differences between those who have a sense of eternal security based on God’s enduring word and those who don’t. If you don’t know Jesus Christ personally, invite Him into your heart and life. If you are a believer, now is a good time to draw closer to the Lord, to know Him and abide in Him on a whole new level, to know His word and to do it with all your heart. In knowing Him, we can know peace instead of panic, in spite of the storm.
