How Bad's it Going to Get?

You may not be aware, but the world's leaders are all meeting in Davos, Switzerland this week to discuss the state of the world. And yes, this is a precursor to how a one-world-government will get started. But that aside, what types of things are getting discussed? One thing for sure is what the heck happened to start this financial crisis...and how long will it continue?

This one paragraph is pretty straight forward;

The root causes for the economic crisis were too much debt, a culture of short-term rewards for long-term risk-taking and fatally flawed mathematical risk models. And plain old greed.

Words of Truth

This Bishop in Jerusalem seems to nail it on the head. He says that at a time when the world could benefit from Christianity...we are turning away from it. He also notes that Muslims need Christ.

Read it here;

Let us all remember that Jesus did not come to save the world but to save us from the world. We are supposed to be making disciples NOT building wealth and focusing on our own entertainment and worldly treasures.

Also note that the Great Commission given to us by Christ to make disciples WAS NOT a command to our local churches...but to us! So let's all be about the Masters work because He is soon going to come and ask us what we did with the talents we were all given. And to the servant who buried it in the will not go well with the Master.

More Rumors of War

It seems everywhere we look on the globe, the threat of military conflicts are growing. The latest one, that has been simmering for decades, is between North and South Korea. The North is led by a mad-man regime and is totally out of touch with reality. We know they successfully tested a nuclear bomb and we also know that they sold military secrets to Syria. Last year Israel flew into Syria in the middle of the night and destroyed a nuclear reactor site.

Now we get this quote from a Reuter's article;

"The confrontation between the north and the south in the political and military fields has been put to such extremes that the inter-Korean relations have reached the brink of a war."

To me saying "brink of war" means that bullets could start flying any day. If that happens, Vice President Biden's prophetic statement that Obama will be tested early in his presidency will certainly come to pass.

U.S. Greed Caused Crisis

This article is pretty amazing when you read it through the "3rd lense of Scripture" Joel Rosenberg calls it. First off, the Chinese are right on in saying that U.S. greed is what really caused this whole global financial mess. Secondly, we in the U.S. spent all of our own savings buying things we couldn't afford and then went and borrowed everyone else's savings in China, Japan, Russia, etc.... so we could continue buying things we couldn't afford. But the thing that really has the world bankers angry is that we issued I.O.U's using Morgan Stanley and Lehmann Brothers and others....and then let them go bankrupt so that the I.O.U's became worthless.

But you have to check this paragraph out;

Mr Wen said the crisis had posed "severe challenges" for China and that it needed 8 per cent growth this year to maintain social stability while the International Monetary Fund predicted 6.7 per cent for this year. The Chinese leader called for faster reform of international financial institutions and for a "new world order" for the economy.

Did you see that??...the world leaders are starting to call for a "new world order". How could this happen? Because sooner or later the U.S. dollar will become worthless and the cry of the world will go out for a one world currency with global central-bankers overseeing we can avoid, in the future, having one country's mistakes take down the whole ship.

So you see, the world won't have a single currency forced on them...and they won't have the anti-christ forced on them...and most won't have the mark of the beast forced on them...they will ask for all these things.

Excellent Point

Let us remember that the Palestinians in Gaza voted in Hamas in a democratic election. It's too bad that their choice was either Fatah (corrupt and worthless) or Hamas (follow us to kill Jews and restore our dignity!)....but whose fault is it that they can't raise leaders that are honest and helpful in giving the Palestninians a chance for a fruitful life? I guess they will have to look in the mirror to find out whose fault it is...something that no human cares to do.

The author of the artcle below points out that civilian casaulties are, sadly, part of the nastiness of war. They will never be avoided. The innocent will always die with the guilty. That's how this fallen world works. Also we are reminded that the U.S. killed hundreds of thousands of civilians in WWII, most notably when we dropped a bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki and vaporized and and/or badly burned two entire cities...and very few soldiers. But history looks at this as something that was necessary to avoid further deaths of U.S. soldiers.

So why is the world in such an uproar about Palestinian civilians suffering pain and death? It goes to the core of the spiritual battle that is raging all around us. Quite simply, Israel and the Jews are God's chosen people that He is soon going to personally handle during the 70th Week of Daniel. (also known as The Tribulation) Since God has marked them as His...Satan (and the world that he commands) is in an uproar about ANYTHING that Israel does. Consequently, the focus on the misdeeds of Israel is totally illogical when put in comparison to what other countries have done in self defense.

Fracture Widens

As we have said, the Gaza conflict affected much more than just Israel and the Palestinians. It has opened a fracture in the Arab world that appears to be widening. Egypt had lot's of Arab critcism heaped on it as they refused to open the Egypt-Gaza crossing during the Israeli offensive. Why would they not open this crossing to help out their Arab cousins in Gaza??...because they know that Hamas is a bunch of terrorists who seek anarchy and they didn't want them flooding into Egypt and putting pressure on their own shaky government.

One thing for sure, this growing conflict in the Arab world WILL affect us all. It remains to be seen if it will affect us for the postive or the negative. Thankfully, God has it all in his hands.

U.S. Collapse Predicted Again

Previously I posted an article that a Russian professor predicted the U.S. is going to collapse and be split into 4 different regions. Now some U.K official is predicting our collapse...along with theirs. His points are pretty hard to argue with concerning America;

"She is a large, and for the time being, a relatively prosperous nation, and I think that the likelihood I'm afraid is that Obama is going to change that for the worse. He has all the kindliness intentions I have no doubt; the left usually do," he adds. "They would love to have motherhood and apple pie, as would we all. But they are so busy working out how to distribute the apple pie, that they never think about the people who are going to have to roll up their sleeves and bake it. And that's the difficulty with socialism. It is all about redistribution and not about generation of wealth."

American Apocalypse

Where is America during the Last Days? How come we aren't mentioned in the bible? As many of you have heard me say, when the rapture happens America will quickly crumble to nothing. Just imagine the turmoil of 20-30% of the population simply vanishing. The infrastructure simply will not be able to function under such a shock.

The rest of the world's countries will not have the same problem, as such a very small percentage of most other Western countries claim Christ as their savior.

Personally, I believe that America was made great (by God) in a very short period of time because our purpose was to incubate, support and defend the country of Israel...until God decides to personally defend Israel Himself...which the bible clearly states he will in Later Days. At which point America won't be needed as an instrument to work God's eternal plan.

As we watch the signs build and the players come on scene for the final prophesies to be played out...we know that our Groom (Christ) must be making some last minute preparations on the eternal home he promised us all. And soon he will be coming into the sky to call us all up to be with Him forever.

Terry James of Rapture Ready has a new book out titled American Apocalypse that talks about these very things. You can read about it here;

Hamas Thinks Obama is no Change

What?? Hamas didn't throw a big party to celebrate Obama's presidency? Didn't they get the global memo that peace, happiness and prosperity is coming for all...if only we will embrace "change"? I tell you, those guys are just no fun.

Solar Storm

In case you missed the post a few weeks ago, I will post this story again as it seems to finally be going mainstream. It seems that scientists are telling us that a major solar storm is in the making and if we have a storm of the same magnitude that we had a century ago, it could knock out all electricity for months...which the U.S. would have a hard time surviving. One thing for sure, with all the great technology that we have it would all come to a sudden halt if electricity is not readily available.
