We rejoice that our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ was born more than two thousand years ago. But, it wasn’t His birth that we really celebrate.
No, it was His sacrifice for us.
We do not deserve it, but I’m not complaining. I’m just grateful that a foolish sinner like myself was chosen to be a child of God.
I know that there is some controversy over this day, but I believe that any time that we glorify God… well …it is a good thing. So, even those of you who do not celebrate Christmas, at least join me in glorifying God.
There’s a certain rhythm to the Universe. And, each part of the Universe has its own distinct tempo. Each pulse and pattern rumbles and beats according to a cadence set by our Great Composer.
We see it everywhere, yet we often fail to see it in ourselves and in the mass of people that we call civilization. So, when Martin Armstrong, Nikolai Kondratiev, or Raymond Wheeler demonstrate that there is a cycle to human existence, we scoff at the idea.
Because it demonstrates a severe limitation to freewill, and we don’t like that – which is completely understandable, although foolish.
I know. I know. It sounds crazy to think that something like the Economic Confidence Model (ECM) could be so accurate. But, it really does appear to be all THAT (and a bag of chips).
The only problem is that we tend to ignore what we do not understand. If something doesn’t make sense, it doesn’t exist to us, until we understand it.
So, let me give you a look a the really solid ideas that are the basis for the ECM, as well as giving you an example of someone discovering a principle at work – before another someone came along and gave us the HOW.
Ultimately, it doesn’t really matter how it works. What matters is that you take steps to get out of the way of what is coming.
History runs in cycles. Life runs in cycles. Investments have cycles. Everything, in fact, runs according to some form of cycle. Anyone who says otherwise is a fool.
In fact, fools have done an incredible amount of damage to investors by loudly proclaiming the end of cycles. There’s always some idiot proclaiming that stocks will keep going up, just before they crash. And, once they crash, the same idiot will often be heard saying that they will never go up.
You might say that there is a cycle to idiocy, too.
Well, there’s yet another cycle that you must pay particular attention to:
Yesterday, a friend and I were talking about pandemics and the stories that many have cooked up to send delicious shivers through their audiences. Part of our discussion was inspired by the threat of Ebola, and part by… well …apocalypse.
The drumbeat for war is accelerating. And, it is NOT a coincidence that the financial system appears to be ready for a complete collapse.
Bix Weir said that this financial collapse will happen within the next four months, and the evidence indicates that he’s right. And, others have echoed his sentiments. Of course, he and these same ‘others’ have made this prediction before – and were wrong. The reason why they were wrong is solely due to the herculean efforts by the banksters to artificially prop up the financial system.
However, there is a limit to how long they can keep the system from collapse. And, if they see a collapse coming… well …they’ll take us to war.
I’m still trying to figure out how and where Martin Armstrong‘s models fit within our time frame of the Last Days. The reason why I am involved in trying to figure it out is that these models have had an uncanny accuracy, and they seem to correspond with the time frame that the Bible appears to lay out.
Am I saying that God is constrained by these cyclical patterns identified by Mr. Armstrong?
Absolutely not. But, God has clearly used natural forces in the past, and it is clear from prophecy that He will use natural forces in the future. So, when we see a natural process that correlates with something that God is doing, we should pay attention.
I left you yesterday with a rather strange thought. Our financial world follows a cycle of 8.6 years, or 3140 days.
Do we have such a strong herd instinct that we can be measured that closely?
Well apparently, this is so. I don’t like this idea any better than you do, but I am forced to agree that it’s true – especially since I’ve seen this ‘herd instinct’ in action for myself.
So, what I would like to do today is talk a bit about why this Economic Confidence Model created by Martin Armstrong is actually something to pay close attention to, and why you should be increasing your efforts to prepare for unimaginable disaster.
