I want you to be prepared, so NOTHING can shake your faith. When everyone else is rioting, I want you to be in your prayer closet covered by God’s chesed (Hebrew: His loving kindness).While many read the standard end time’s hype, few are reading my edifying messages. Why is that?
So far, 4,000 people have read my blog. The big names preach pre-tribulation rapture, and they preach immanency, meaning NOTHING needs to occur before the rapture. They want you to be clueless, so they can charge you to interpret the signs for you. They foment hype, while I foment edification. Thus, when the prophesied frightening events appear, you will be like lemmings running over a cliff. Don’t be like a lemming. Please read my blog posts, pray about my information, and trust in God.
I believe that God has given people over to a spirit of prosperity and the rapture. While there are many that hold to my message, they are greatly outnumbered by prosperity/rapture people. My message of observing the signs around you in the Hebrew calendar sounds too Jewish for some. My message of the Seven Seals opening over the last few years like birth pangs sounds too gloomy for others. Pray about my words, God will confirm if it's the truth or a lie.Now, it’s time for the news. This is from a Wall Street Brokerage company. Normally, these guys want to sell you stocks and bonds. Today, they’re talking about the truth. They’re not going to sell much today.
A Dollar Collapse is ComingBy FLOYD BROWN, Chief Political Analyst - Wall St Daily email 6.20.2013
…We also agreed that a dollar collapse is ahead. Yet, because of good economic decisions by leaders in the past and the dollar's status as the world's main reserve currency, America keeps putting off the day of reckoning.Today, America is like the fourth generation heirs of a fabulous fortune. We may be making all the wrong moves, but our fortune is large, so it takes time for our spendthrift ways and bone-headed policies to erode the legacy bequeathed to us by our forbearers.
The Problem With a Fiat CurrencyOur current standard of living is entirely reliant on the dollar's world reserve currency position. Outside of that, it's nothing more than a trashy paper currency. Fortunately, more than 60% of all foreign currency reserves in the world are in U.S. dollars. But when this special reserve status changes, the U.S. dollar could experience a devastating "flash crash."
That almost happened in the 1970s when the United States cancelled the gold standard. But luckily the Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger, made a smart move. He negotiated a deal... In return for military protection, the Saudi and Gulf oil states agreed to conduct their oil dealings in the U.S. dollar.As a result, the dollar more or less converted into a de facto oil-backed currency. Though not backed by gold, it was now secured by the strength of the U.S. economy and intimately attached to another cherished commodity, oil.
Still, it was a close call for our currency. And today, the dollar is a "fiat" currency. The Fed produces fresh dollars by either printing them or injecting electronic "reserves" into the banking system. The supply of dollars hinges upon the determinations of the board of governors of the Fed. The dollar itself has no intrinsic value.The euro, Japanese yen and British pound are all fiat currencies, too. This is dangerous for the world's economy because every fiat currency in world history has eventually collapsed. They've all been destroyed by their controlling regimes.
Dangerous TimesIf country after country experiences a serious currency crisis, I'm worried we could see a rolling series of collapses in the bond markets.
U.S. bond prices have started to fall recently, which is just another way of saying that U.S. interest rates are rising. If mortgage and credit card rates increase too much, consumers will send the weak U.S. economy over the cliff into a deep recession.The Fed already has the monetary floodgates open, printing more dollars than is prudent. Eventually, this surge in dollar supply will destroy the value of the dollar. Costs for just about every product would then skyrocket. People whose life savings are in cash, bank CDs, or dollar-denominated bonds could be wiped out. Many U.S. companies will be bankrupted, along with their shareholders.
The only reason this isn't happening right now is because deflation winds are countering the forced inflation. The problem will come when the Fed attempts to unwind the easy money. You see, the easy money has been like heroin to the financial classes on Wall Street. There's no way to get unhooked without catastrophe.Elsewhere, the only reason Japan and the European Union have been able to generate their meager rates of growth is the willingness of American consumers to purchase their Sony TVs and Mercedes Benz autos.
If the dollar plunges too far, Asian and European goods - priced in their domestic currencies - could become prohibitively overpriced for U.S. consumers. European and Asian leaders would likely respond with monetary inflation, too, as the Japanese are now doing. The Japanese are buying bonds and flooding world markets with yen. This could result in a series of "competitive devaluations," which may result in a death spiral for all the major fiat currencies.Before we part, Mike Zullo and I agree... we live in dangerous times for America. And we all need a plan to prepare ourselves and our families [to trust in God regardless].
Epilog for the first day of summer:
Gold and U.S. Stocks Pretty Much Collapsed Thursdayhttp://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/06/20/ok-so-gold-and-u-s-stocks-pretty-much-collapsed-today/
Jun. 20, 2013 4:03pm Becket AdamsU.S. stocks started a downward slide yesterday after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said the Fed may draw down its $85 billion-per-month bond-buying program sometime in mid-2014 if unemployment manages to work its way down to 6.5 percent.
And that downward slide picked up steam on Thursday, sending the three major U.S. stock indices way, way lower.Shalom!
