It looks like Italians don't like austerity-preaching politicians. Debt is easy, and saving is hard; so why should Italians chose the hard path? Thus, Italians recently voted the easy politicians back into office. What does this mean for the rest of us?
According to TheEconomicCollapseBlog.com, after the USA and Japan, Italy is the world's greatest debtor nation. If they default on their debts, they will take down Europe. If Europe falls, the USA will fall too, just like dominoes.
What should we do? Work on discernment! Discernment what?
Recently God has convinced me that I need to discern better and faster. Also, my best Christian friends have mentioned this issue too. As newbies add themselves to our groups, expect some plants from the Accuser to join too. When horrific events hit, somebody needs to quickly discern who is on God's side and who stands with the Accuser. This is the time to learn discernment.
One of my favorite sources in Michael Boldea, the grandson of Dumitru Dudeman. He recently stated:
"There has never been a time in human history when discernment was more of a commodity and necessity. I come to this conclusion not on my own, but because of what the Word of God tells us concerning the times and seasons we are living in. The perilous times of which the Bible warns have come, and with them the false prophets, teachers, and Christs the Scriptures also warn us of.
Be discerning enough to know when someone has truly had a change of heart, and when they are just going wherever the wind blows, and saying whatever they think will garner them the biggest audience.
Above all else, whomever the individual happens to be, whether someone you highly respect in the field of theology, or myself, make sure you search the Scriptures to see if what they are saying and what the Bible says are in harmony with each other.
Nobody gets a pass. This should be the first rule when it comes to teaching, doctrine, prophecy, theology, pneumatology, or eschatology. Everyone goes through the filter, everyone gets tested, and everyone’s words must be proven out by Scripture.
Knowing that the enemy will attempt to deceive, if possible, even the elect, we must be vigilant, on guard, and committed to standing on the Word, regardless of how appealing a certain doctrine might be to our flesh. http://mikeboldea.blogspot.com/
