"Financial Apocalypse" - Questions We Should All Be Asking [Updated]

The following article hits right to the heart of the state of planet earth in 2012 as we approach the Tribulation. Coming from "The Economic Collapse", this article, by intent isn't intended to relate to biblical prophecy but it reveals just how tenuous our current lifestyle and daily living are. Things are just on the brink of changing rapidly. Will it be weeks or months? That is hard to know, but months is probably the most conservative measure of how long it will be before we have complete collapse.

Note the bolded questions:

1. Why is the IMF warning that there is an "alarmingly high" risk of a deeper global economic slowdown?

2. Why is Switzerland preparing for "major civil unrest" throughout Europe?

3. If the Spanish financial system completely collapses, what is that going to mean for the rest of Europe and the rest of the globe?

4. Is Turkey about to drag the rest of NATO (including the United States) into a war with Syria?

5. Why aren't people screaming in outrage about the fact that the U.S. national debt increased by more than a trillion dollars for the fourth straight year in 2012?

6. Should we be concerned that the U.S. government added more to the U.S. national debt on the first day of fiscal year 2013 than it did from 1776 to 1941 combined?

7. If temporary refinery problems can cause some gas stations to shut down and cause gas prices in California to skyrocket to all-time highs, what would a real crisis do?

8. Why are some analysts predicting that a "rapid collapse" is coming for the U.S. dollar?

9. Will the U.S. dollar soon lose its status as the primary reserve currency of the world?

10. Why is Marc Faber warning that the wealthy "may lose up to 50 percent of their total wealth"?

11. By keeping interest rates near zero, is the Federal Reserve crushing the retirement dreams of millions of elderly Americans?

12. Why do Barack Obama, Mitt Romney and most members of Congress continue to stand behind the TSA when nearly 400 TSA employees have been fired for stealing from travelers since 2003?
13. Why are nearly half a million employees of the federal government making over $100,000 a year?

14. How in the world can you have a debate about the economy that lasts for an hour and a half and never even mention Ben Bernanke, the Federal Reserve or quantitative easing?

15. Why are Romney campaign signs being smeared with excrement?
16. British taxpayers spent 57.8 million dollars on the royal family in 2011.  U.S. taxpayers spent 1.4 billion dollars on the Obamas that same year.  How in the world can this be justified?
17. Why does the U.S. government treat our military veterans like garbage?  Many of them have given everything for their country.  Shouldn't we treat them with more respect?
18. Why is the mainstream media ignoring a warning that an international gang of cybercriminals plans "to steal money from the online accounts of thousands of consumers at 30 or more major U.S. banks"?

19. The New England Complex Systems Institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts is warningthat rapidly rising global food prices could soon lead to massive food riots all over the planet.  Is this something that we should be concerned about?20. Why is the United Nations pushing to have the authority to impose "global taxes" on all of us?

21. How did we get to the point where sex trafficking is now at epidemic levels all over the United States?
22. Why are so many young people being arrested?  Should we be concerned that 41 percent of all Americans have been arrested by the time they reach the age of 23?
23. Why are most Americans either overweight or obese or severely obese?
24. How was one Baltimore woman able to accumulate 30 free cell phones all paid for by the federal government?
25. Why are nearly 30 percent of all young adults in the 25 to 34 year old age bracket living at home with their parents?
26. Why has the birth rate in the United States fallen to an all-time low?

27. With the race for president incredibly tight right now, will the side that loses end up accusing the other side of using voter fraud to steal the election?

28. Is the U.S. Supreme Court about to make it illegal to resell our own stuff at yard sales, in thrift stores and on eBay?

These are dark days and the darkness is descending rapidly. Very rapidly. 

One has to wonder why FEMA has ordered billions of rounds of ammunition. Clearly they are expecting some sort of civil unrest in this country. 

What could trigger civil unrest in America?

Those scenarios seem endless, but with the upcoming elections it is tempting to speculate on a scenario where the current administration "wins" despite being behind in the polls in an apparent stolen election.
There are other scenarios, but the above seems the most imminent. 

The world is on the brink - standing on the edge of a cliff. 

But remember "Big Crisis = Big Change" and we know that the Tribulation will represent "Big Change" as a world dictator (aka "the antichrist") assumes complete power and controls the world's financial system with a central currency and the Mark of the Beast. It would most likely require a big crisis to precipitate such a radical change to this planet's current systems. 

You can't read the news without getting a sense that we are indeed just in the brink of these enormous changes. 

Don't forget - we are to keep one eye on the signs and one eye on the coming of Christ Jesus. 

We will be saved from the coming wrath - we have been through these scriptures many many times.

If you need some reassurance go back and read 1 Thessalonians 1:10. Revelation 3:10. 1 Thessalonians 4&5. And for a boost, go see what we will be doing during the Tribulation as seen in Revelation 19:1-9. 

It won't be long now. We have a celebration and a wedding to attend.

I'm lifting moderation today because I believe today;'s news is THAT important and that significant.

I've been having to block an incredible amount of inappropriate posts lately - and that isn't surprising given the nearness of the hour.

Sue - I will politely ask that you not come on here with your apostasy related posts - lets stick to today's news.

If inappropriate posts are made before I have a chance to review, please ignore.

God bless - lets be watching the coming of our Lord and not be distracted from that, although many, for some reason want us distracted from watching and divided during these last moments. Don't let it happen.

With Romney doing so well in the polls it seems likely Netanyahu is going to hold off attacking Iran til after the election... But if that's true, I don't picture Syria not lobbing some chemical weapons over to Israel way before then... And thats when Damascus gets phrophetically deleted in return?
So with Obama still in charge when that happens, does he defend Israel when Russia & Iran swoop down to destroy her? Of course not. Only God will protect Israel in the moments before all is lost... And how will the MSM explain THAT? We're in the countdown stage now... If I didn't know how God is behind the scenes, would have had a nervous breakdown a long time ago! Can almost smell sweet scent of roses at the wedding feast of our King, Jesus Christ! :)

WVBORN56 said...

Christine I love the comment about smelling the sweet sent of roses. Pretty cool.

Scott is the Coming Economic Collapse Publication considered a blog? It seems like with a name like that it would have a short shelf life if we weren't living in the end times. The guy does a great job and I like how most of his headlines are numbered lists. The 28 questions the MSM should be asking was eye opening and frustrating at the same time.

I am still thinking the big tipping point we are waiting for here will most likely be the rapture. That would not only be the straw that breaks the camel's back but it would crush the camel and almost immediately usher in what we read in Revelation 6.

Waterer said...

So agree with the sweet image Christine. When I went outside at dawn with our Black lab puppy, thre was a beautiful newly opened creamy rose. Though he was pulling me off the porch, I held fast and took time to lean over and take a deep smell of that sweet scent.
The New Dawn Rose blooms twice a year and we are getting the second blossoms now.
Maranatha!! Praying for Jimmy.

Gwenny said...

I love the thought of sweet roses at the Wedding Feast! Won't it be wonderful when we are all there together and can finally thank our Lord in person and say hello to each other! God Bless each and everyone here! Enjoy this beautiful day that the Lord has given to us!

Dutch Treat said...

Christine, I also love the rose analogy since Jesus is often referred to as the Rose of Sharon. WV, I also believe the Rapture is the big tipping point, although there are also many minor ones such as Isaiah 17. When that occurs, if we're still here, that will be a big sign that it's just around the corner. By the way, I hope your End Time series is going well. If there is anyway we can help, please let us know.

WVBORN56 said...

Dutch, I have mixed emotions as to whether we will be here for Isaiah 17. I can go either way. I don't think we can be dogmatic. It is pretty much all speculation. If we are here for that battle I think we won't be here much longer after that as Ezekiel 38-39 comes soon after.

The first night of speaking went fine. My wife said I talked too fast but everyone else gave me positive feedback and no one lynched me for heresy. :)

My biggest struggle has been organizing the material and it has taken me a ton of time but it has been very beneficial and most enjoyable. One week down and three to go. Last week I spoke about the reasons to study prophecy and how it should excite us not scare us. Next week I plan to look at economic & globalization signs the third week will be focused on Israel and Middle East and the final week all the other signs.

I appreciate your prayers because this is definitely out of my comfort zone. I am simply trying to honor and obey the Lord and sound the warning as a fellow watchman on the wall.

Waterer said...

I know others here have said that Ez war follows quickly behind Isaihs war on Damascus but I do not know the Scriptural lInk. i know the conversation about unwalled cities but ai don't see the Biblical link that these two must be close together. I would appreciate some references to that fro you,Dutch or others. Thanks so much,KR

Sharon said...

Praying for both of you, Waterer and WV - that God would anoint your preparation time and during the presentation (and following Q&A). May the Lord bless you richly as you are faithful to His calling.

Looking forward to the day when we are finally home!

Good going WVBORN56 ! More of the Church needs to hear about the prophecies for our present (End) times.

Is it just me or is it there's plenty of correct teaching out there about the Rapture, etc., BUT most of the Church just doesn't want to hear it (very probably because it interferes with their plans & dreams for life in this world)?

The stubborness of most of the Church on this score is most irritating, mostly because they are then so distracted to pray for the lost who'll be left behind it they remain in that state. John 9:4.

I'm glad Ally all gave us a heads-up about Pastor Lee Thomas' book, "Praying Effectively for the Lost." I've found it very helpful and scriptural, and well in line with what Charles H. Spurgeon wrote I guess over 100 years ago:

“If sinners be damned, at least let them leap to Hell over our dead bodies. And if they perish, let them perish with our arms wrapped about their knees, imploring them to stay. If Hell must be filled, let it be filled in the teeth of our exertions, and let not one go unwarned and unprayed for.”

See also Pastor Thomas concerning praying for the lost in --

Praying for the lost effectively could well be one of the best ways of "occupying 'til He comes" while we wait (which won't be too much longer). Sure beats my twiddling my thumbs and being frustrated. :) Been using Pastor Thomas' stuff since Ally gave us that heads-up, and I think I'm beginning to see it work!

Anyway, God Bless you WVBORN56. Maranatha and keep up the good work.


nathan said...

Hey neat WV , That takes a LOT of guts to get up and speak about prophecy . Of course nowadays it shouldn't take much to convince people . Hold a Bible in one hand and a newspaper in the other . Kudos .

Did anyone see the news today ? Russia has said it is ending the nuclear non-proliferation treaty in 2013 . YIKES . Thats big news .


David said...

I'm thinking that the coming us/Israeli drill will be the real deal. Strategic strikes on nuclear locations. Mr. President is needing to up his ratings. Gain more support before the election. Scott, I haven't confirmed this, but I have heard that Mr. President did a congress bypass as soon as he took office and enacted a status quo of the presidency in the event of war. If this is true, win or lose it might be that he stays. Can you or anyone elaborate on this?

Bye the way. Please continue to seek the lost. A group from my church went out to the community this past weekend. Out of 30 houses,I went to only 3 professed Christ. An 80+ gentleman said he wouldn't go and had no interest in hearing anything about it. All we can do is keep trying. Time is rapidly slipping away.

Waterer said...

Thank you Sharon!!!!

WVBORN56 said...

Thanks Sharon and Nathan.

KR, to tell you the truth I'm not sure. I guess I have heard it so long I accepted it as it made sense logically. I'll have to do a bit of research.

Logically thinking it makes sense as Israel will be weakened in Isaiah 17 and the Russian coalition will most likely see this as the perfect opportunity to come in to finish them off and collect the spoil?
