I’ve been reading about Joseph in the Book of Genesis, and I had something of an epiphany. I realized that what is happening now to America follows a pattern that is almost 3,700 years old. But first, I need to set the stage for you.
It was about 1886 BC, and Shem – Noah’s son – had died just 72 years before. The memories of the Great Flood and the antediluvian age were fading. Civilizations were starting to really expand their borders. Political systems were in their infancy. Yoseph ben Ya’acov had just been elevated to Grand Vizier of Egypt, and he laid down one of the earliest systems of taxation in the history of mankind.
As I laid out yesterday, I believe that 2014 will mark the beginning of the end. Or, maybe I should say that it will mark the VISIBLE start to the beginning of the end. Depending on how you define ‘The End’, you could describe ‘The Beginning of the End’ as starting in 1967, 1945, 1913, 1870, 1776 (but not the way you think), 1492 or even the true Christmas Day in 4 BC. 1967 marked the capture of Jerusalem, and Jesus specifically spoke of this as a marker for the Last Days. 1945 marked the beginning of the American Empire, and I have come to believe that this is the rise of the Seventh Head. 1913 marks the rise of the Federal Reserve and the IRS, and just months later, World War I began. 1870 marked the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, the real beginnings in the consumption of Fossil Fuels and the rapid rise in global population. And, 1776 marked the beginning of the Illuminati, at least the official part. All of these beginnings play a key role in what we are facing right now, but we have not seen these ‘beginnings’ as a visible part of ‘The End’ – until now.
I know that there is a controversy over when our Lord and Savior was born, but I rejoice in the fact that there are so many who sing songs that glorify God. One day, someone may pinpoint the exact day in which Jesus was born and lay to rest a minor schism over celebrating His birthday. But even so, I can think of no better birthday to remember, no matter how late we celebrate it, and I will continue to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, and a Happy N-New… Ye… (I’m having trouble saying it, so hold on a second.) Happy New Y-Ye… …ear.
When God gives you something, your first responsibility is to find a use for it – for the sake of His kingdom. If you have a car, you help people get to where they need to go. If you have time, you help those without any. If you have a house, you provide a roof for those who need it. Everything we have is for God, His glory and His kingdom.
But, there are times when God has given you something that you don’t know what to do with. If you’ve asked God for what to do, and He doesn’t tell you… there’s only one thing to do. And, that goes for survival situations.
As I said yesterday, there is no logical reason why Europe and the US are signing this deal with Iran. It won’t lower the price of oil. There’s no atavistic, pent-up demand for Persian carpets.. There’s nothing that Iran offers that will provide enough incentive for the Obama administration to sign this deal with Iran. Or, maybe I should say that there’s no obvious reason.
At this point, we could throw up our hands and claim insanity. But, the problem is that the Obama administration ISN’T insane. Furthermore, Valerie Jarrett, Bill Ayers and the other insiders within the White House aren’t insane, either. Maybe they’re ignorant?
You might be saying to yourself that you’ve heard this one before, and I understand that. Netanyahu has been threatening this for the last few years, and doing nothing. So, it’s natural for everyone to assume that this is posturing. But, Israelis know that this is not posturing, and Israelis also know that Iran really is planning to destroy Israel. Likewise, Israelis are determined to do something about Iran, if no one else will. But, that still doesn’t explain why the current bit of news is different.
By now, you know that disaster is coming, and that’s REALLY depressing. Believe me when I say that I get depressed writing about it. But, this disaster contains a silver lining. For some, this silver lining means wealth and prosperity. For others, it provides the ability to serve God by serving others. The question is, which one are you?
The point is that monetary catastrophes do not destroy wealth. (That may sound strange to you, but bear with me.) In actuality, depressions and recessions TRANSFER wealth – from weak hands to strong ones. For instance, did you know that more millionaires were created during the Great Depression than in any other time in history?
What an interesting web of lies and self-interest. Nothing in any of the official narratives produced by the major players in this game made sense. The United States wanted to kill even more civilians, because civilians were killed by something that MIGHT have been chemical weapons. Russia trumpeted the need to preserve international law and threatened the use of nuclear weapons over a rather insignificant country with very little in the way of natural resources. Saudi Arabia, one of the biggest violators of human rights in the world, was upset that human rights were being violated in Syria, and has downgraded diplomatic relations with the US because they haven’t attacked Syria – which would have caused even MORE Sunnis to die in Syria. The Iranians have indicated that the fall of the Assad regime in Syria would do great harm to Iran. And, Turkey is… well, it’s hard to know why Turkey wanted (and still wants) the Alawite Assads to fall from power.
This may seem like a trivial point to raise, but it’s actually very, very important. Remember that gold has been the de facto currency for thousands of years, and it has been the most sought after safe haven when the future is in doubt. When you wanted a safe place to put your money, you always bought gold. Always.
This principle is well understood by central bankers all over the world, which is why it would make sense for them to prop up the value of their currencies by pushing down the value of gold. I know that sounds a little bizarre, but it’s the best explanation for what I said on Monday:
On Monday, I said that the US is completely and utterly bankrupt. I went on to say that… according to the US National Debt Clock, the total assets of the United States… planes, trains, automobiles… roads, bridges, buildings… houses, tricycles, backyards… is less in value than the total obligations owed by the US Federal Government. To put it another way, the debt owed by the government exceeds the total value of the entire country. Or, to make this more personal, total US Federal unfunded liabilities (i.e., debts) exceeds $1 million per taxpayer. And then, I asked a question.
