Enter the Gray Rhino

For the past two weeks, the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) has been referring to a term that few have heard before. It’s a ‘Gray Rhino’. (or Grey Rhino, for you Brits) That term refers to risks that everyone sees, but doing nothing to resolve.

Unfortunately, that’s the age that we are living in. There are ‘Gray Rhinos’ trampling the world. They are everywhere, and it’s appalling that we are doing precisely nothing to stop their destruction of our civilization. These risks are obvious, but we are too corrupt to do anything about them.

It’s an utterly maddening phenomenon.

We Chose Optimism Over Honesty

Without an honest look at what is real, there can never be a hope for the future. Never. Yes, there might be moments of accidental prosperity. From time-to-time, you might experience something above average, but you can never hold off reality.

In fact, one of the reasons why I continue to commit all of my life to Christ, is that the Bible is the clearest reflection of reality that we have. Yet, we prefer the momentary pleasures of fantasy, instead the gritty truth residing within those pages bound together and sent around the world.

We are facing the most horrific moment in a thousand years precisely because we chose optimism over honesty.

Big Changes

Change is a constant. The only variable seems to be how much change, and what direction. And, most people don’t factor in how things change, when attempting to predict the future.

This seems like a strange statement, but looking at the past and the predictions that many made in the past… it’s clear that very few, if any, have been able to predict the conditions in which we now live. Even our view of the past changes, based upon our view of the present.

Oh, and the changes that we currently experience, are about to accelerate.

Quickly.

Faith and Obedience in Desperate Times

Desperate times are at our doorstep. For some, they are already here. The question on our minds is…

…What do we do when danger threatens us, our family and our neighbors?

Well, I can tell you that nothing tests your faith and obedience like a desperate situation. You might THINK that you know how  you will react, but you won’t KNOW until it happens.

Will you keep your faith and obey God, when everything falls apart?

If you don’t know the answer to that, now is the time to make sure.

3/11 – A Warning Ignored

Sunday was the seven year anniversary of 3/11.

Three eleven. That’s what we – in East Asia – call the Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami of March 11th, 2011. The rest of you think of it as the time when the Fukushima nuclear reactors melted down and blew up.

However, it’s more than a disaster. It’s also an allegory of the future – an allegory that we need to pay attention to. Those who do not internalize this warning about the future, will be lucky to survive when that future arrives.

Why do I say this?

Most who died in the 3/11 Tsunami, did so because they ignored the warning – or didn’t hear it.

The System is Dying

The current, high tech civilization started dying a little over ten years ago. What began in the 1800s, races towards an inglorious end and the death of billions of people. And, you know nothing about this, because our dear leaders do not want you to know.

In fact, these same ‘dear leaders’ undoubtedly tell themselves that our fantastic empire will continue, that nothing can shake this great ship as it travels into the night. But, not all is as it seems, and that jolt you felt in 2008 was the same kind of iceberg that sank the unsinkable Titanic.

As our system dies, will you be ready for this?

Get Wisdom or Die

One of my many faults is my lack of patience with fools and foolishness. There just isn’t enough time to fix a fool, and I don’t have the energy for it. The only thing that I can do is point out the fools, so that the wise don’t get tarnished by their message. And yes, fools have a message, and they want you to buy it.

The only defense against a fool is wisdom. Some think that knowledge is the key, but it’s not. Knowledge is just an input to wisdom.

And, without wisdom, you have no hope for survival as our system dies.

TORN

The next few weeks appear to be pivotal to the future of the United States, and the future of yourself. Several sources over the past few days have popped up with information that indicate a future that is both catastrophic and hopeful, at the same time.

I dread the catastrophe, but I embrace the hope.

This has made the past week emotionally turbulent for myself, and I guess that I get the chance to share that turbulence with you. I am torn over the possible events that lie in our future. And, when I am finished laying out what I have seen, I believe that you will feel the same way.

Done but Not Finished

The immediate future is beyond awful. In fact, when I look out over the course of current events it is difficult to see ANY good news in our future. War, corruption and the vilest of evils weigh so heavily upon our future that I cringe at the thought of what is coming.

Yet, there is hope.

Unfortunately, the context of that ‘hope’ will be the death of a billion people. But, those who have prepared for that ‘hope’ will have the opportunity to fulfill their destiny in service to God.

Those who ignore the need to prepare will experience horrors beyond my willingness to contemplate.

Facing Reality – Jade Helm 15

Disaster awaits. That brooding, malevolent future patiently bides its time, while we pursue our own interests. But, it remains at rest for only a season. In fact, we see evidence that it no longer slumbers. Others recognize that calamity is on the move.

How about you?

Banks have begun to fall in Austria. War in the Middle East grows hotter by the day. Greece turns to Russia. Russia tests a new ICBM. The US government tightens the shackles on Americans. And, then… there’s Jade Helm 15.

Please, do NOT misunderstand the threat that Jade Helm demonstrates. Never in the history of the United States have we had such a training exercise. Never.
