The Knockout Game: It’s About Eschatology, Not Racism.

Today’s premise is that our cities are becoming more dangerous, not because of random black on white violence, but because we’re nearing the end of days. The stories are becoming apocalyptic; the Australian athlete gunned down, the St. Paul man beaten by thirty gangsters, and the WWII Veteran killed by thugs are recent examples of increasing violence against regular folks.  

Most of you already sense that we’re nearing the end of days, due to seeing your world implode; however, you don’t know your Bible well enough to know why. So far, my time line has been accurate. Next: We should see an odd increase in animal attacks, and then we’ll see weak-minded people attack those more vulnerable. It’s a typical satanic plan, and it’s also prophesied in the Bible, so watch and prepare for increased drug-fueled attacks against the meek.  
I’m asking you to cull recent news, and review my evidence before you pass judgment on my premise. You need to link news events from unknown sources to see the trend; however, it’s there. Most of the best evidence is being blocked by the largest media outlets. They won’t report that young gangster attacks against defenseless white people are increasing, because they don’t want to incite White Supremacist counterattacks. (By the way, I don’t support any attacks or counterattacks, because I don’t believe in racial differences. Slight genetic pigment differences don’t cause people to hate. Rather, people have to be taught, and then incited to hate.)

After animals are incited to attack the meek, expect wild animal-like people to begin attacking. The decreases in time frame between attacks, and the increases of the severity of attacks should resemble birth-pangs. Based on evidence of animal attacks cited in the Fourth Seal of Revelation, I’m positing that drug-fueled people will attack meek people, like the wild animals, during the Fifth Seal.
When the Lamb broke the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of those who had been put to death for proclaiming the Word of God, that is, for bearing witness. They cried out in a loud voice, "Sovereign Ruler, HaKadosh, the True One, how long will it be before you judge the people living on earth and avenge our blood?" Each of them was given a white robe; and they were told to wait a little longer, until the full number of their fellow-servants should be reached, of their brothers who would be killed, just as they had been. Revelation 6:9-11 (CJB)

In recent reports, author Colin Flaherty has been documenting the dramatic increase in black on white crime he calls, “The Knockout Game.”
Intended Knockout Game victim shoots back

Supposedly, bored young black gangsters are being incited to attack random people to derive pleasure.

More violence from Seattle...

More violence from Pittsburgh…

Woman brutally beaten by group of teens in North Side says attack was ‘racially motivated’
A woman who said she was brutally attacked by a group of black teenagers in Pittsburgh’s North Side Sunday said the girls savagely beat her while calling her racial slurs.
Ginger Slepski said she suffered multiple injuries, including torn shoulder ligaments. She said she thought the girls were going to kill her.

“I thought it was so animalistic. So violent. I’m so afraid for these girls to get out and walk the streets,” Slepski said.
More news…

My opinion: Drugs open doorways to the demonic. When young men take drugs, they become more open to suggestions from demons to hurt the meek. While these suggestions have always existed, they are more prevalent as the Fourth Seal and Fifth Seal of Revelation open.

By introducing drugs or implanting thoughts, there are spiritual forces causing what appears to be race riots. These riots aren't racially motivated, they're spiritually motivated. This is a great time to leave the downtown areas, before the real riots begin.

The US Government is readying for riots, are you? Tanks on trains are being rushed to riot zones. And hollow point bullets have been purchased. This is the time to stay home and pray.

Warning: Comet Ison's Historical Links To Revelation's Fourth Seal Of War/Famine/Plagues/Animal Attacks

Recent news about Comet Ison links possible upcoming events to Comet Negra from 1347, 666 years ago. There is a possible connection between Comet Negra and the Black Plague that soon followed.

My theory is that the Fourth Seal of Revelation will open soon causing 1.75 billion people to die in the next year, due to war, famine, plagues, and wild animal attacks. Could Comet Ison be associated with upcoming events, like Comet Negra possibly was related to the Black Plague of the Middle Ages? The ancient book from the Harvard Library link below presents a strong case that a comet showered Europe with the black Plague Virus. We’ll soon find out if this will happen again. In the meantime, there is a recent Black Plague report.

Three More Sick As Kyrgyzstan Battles Bubonic Plague
Plagues are one of the four threats listed in the Fourth Seal of Revelation.

When he broke the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living being say, "Go!" I looked, and there in front of me was a pallid [green], sickly-looking horse. Its rider's name was Death, and Sh'ol followed behind him. They were given authority to kill one-quarter of the world by war, by famine, by plagues and with the wild animals of the earth. Revelation 6:7-8 (CJB)

War: Have I mentioned Syria?

Famine: It’s coming soon, and it’s already destitute in Somalia, Ethiopia, and North Korea.  
Plagues: This is an interesting video linking Comet Ison to Comet Negra. (It is unsubstantiated prophetically.)

Here is another version of this report.

Animal Attacks: In another unsubstantiated prophetic report, a man named Bob warned of upcoming animal attacks from Bull Sharks, Panthers/Leopards, and Wild Hogs.

Teen Survives First Confirmed Wolf Attack In Minnesota
My opinion: While financial markets erode, President Obama launches another war in Syria, under Comet Ison. Amidst worldwide chaos, watch and pray like Yeshua taught.

After Yeshua had said these things, he looked up toward heaven and said, "Father, the time has come. Glorify your Son, so that the Son may glorify you -- just as you gave him authority over all mankind, so that he might give eternal life to all those whom you have given him. And eternal life is this: to know you, the one true God, and him whom you sent, Yeshua the Messiah. "I glorified you on earth by finishing the work you gave me to do.  Now, Father, glorify me alongside yourself. Give me the same glory I had with you before the world existed. "I made your name known to the people you gave me out of the world. They were yours, you gave them to me, and they have kept your word.  Now they know that everything you have given me is from you, because the words you gave me I have given to them, and they have received them. They have really come to know that I came from you, and they have come to trust that you sent me. "I am praying for them. I am not praying for the world, but for those you have given to me, because they are yours. Indeed, all I have is yours, and all you have is mine, and in them I have been glorified. Now I am no longer in the world. They are in the world, but I am coming to you. Holy Father, guard them by the power of your name, which you have given to me, so that they may be one, just as we are. When I was with them, I guarded them by the power of your name, which you have given to me; yes, I kept watch over them; and not one of them was destroyed (except the one meant for destruction, so that the Tanakh might be fulfilled). But now, I am coming to you; and I say these things while I am still in the world so that they may have my joy made complete in themselves. "I have given them your word, and the world hated them, because they do not belong to the world -- just as I myself do not belong to the world. I don't ask you to take them out of the world, but to protect them from the Evil One. They do not belong to the world, just as I do not belong to the world. Set them apart for holiness by means of the truth -- your word is truth. Just as you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world. On their behalf I am setting myself apart for holiness, so that they too may be set apart for holiness by means of the truth. "I pray not only for these, but also for those who will trust in me because of their word, that they may all be one. Just as you, Father, are united with me and I with you, I pray that they may be united with us, so that the world may believe that you sent me. The glory which you have given to me, I have given to them; so that they may be one, just as we are one -- I united with them and you with me, so that they may be completely one, and the world thus realize that you sent me, and that you have loved them just as you have loved me. "Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am; so that they may see my glory, which you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world. Righteous Father, the world has not known you, but I have known you, and these people have known that you sent me. I made your name known to them, and I will continue to make it known; so that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I myself may be united with them." John 17 (CJB, emphasis added)

Did A 'Mystical Experience" Cause The Former Pope To Resign?

My consistent argument is that God has a specific time line for humanity. Everything exists for a specific time, i.e., was the former pope prompted to retire in 2013? Can you believe the recent news?

If you read the Torah, you'll see how HaShem (God) permits certain activities, and goads certain activates. It doesn't matter, HaShem directs humanity toward perfect timing in blessings, and curses. We exist to glorify HaShem, in all of our fear or loathing, regardless of motivation.

My opinion: Pope Benedict had to resign last year. HaShem's plans must come to fruition.

Pope Electors Told Of 'Smoke Of Satan' In Vatican


It’s a matter so dark and serious it has only been whispered about behind closed doors in Vatican circles by courageous priests such as the late John F. O’Connor, Alfred Kunz and the late Malachi Martin.

But now, thanks to the release by the Holy See of an official bulletin titled “Acta Apostolicae Sedis,” it has been confirmed that the papal conclave that elected Pope Francis March 13 heard a message, immediately before the voting, from a senior cardinal dealing directly with the threat of “The Smoke of Satan” descending on the Vatican itself.

The meditation about “that which Christ wants from his Church” was delivered by Maltese Prosper Grech, an 87-year-old Augustinian who could not participate in the vote. After his meditation, reports the Catholic online newsletter Chiesa,  he left the Sistine Chapel.
He prefaced his remarks by saying: “I have no intention of making the identikit of the new pope, and much less of presenting a plan of action for the future pontiff. This very delicate task belongs to the Holy Spirit, who in recent decades has gifted us with a series of excellent holy pontiffs. My intention is that of drawing from Scripture some reflections to help us understand what Christ wants from his Church.”

Taking on what he characterized as an anti-Church media, Grech suggested when accusations are false, they should not be addressed, “even if they cause immense pain.”
In March 2010, Father Gabriele Amorth, the chief Vatican exorcist, told Italian newspaper La Repubblica: “The devil resides in the Vatican and you can see the consequences. He can remain hidden, or speak in different languages, or even appear to be sympathetic. At times he makes fun of me. But I’m a man who is happy in his work.”

He added the evil influence of Satan was evident in the highest ranks of the Catholic hierarchy, with “cardinals who do not believe in Jesus and bishops who are linked to the demon.”
My opinion: There are godly saints within the Roman Catholic Church, and within other Christian Church Denominations, so don’t dismiss any of these whole bodies. Pray for the saints persevering within any church body, and the Roman Catholic Church.

Prepare for the worst as we enter the Jewish fall moedim. The cosmos is groaning for the Mashiach.

Expect Agitation: From animals, rocks, the sun, and especially the weak-minded. Be especially aware of the weak-minded within the Christian/Messianic Community. Test everything!

And indeed, all who want to live a godly life united with the Messiah Yeshua will be persecuted, while evil people and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving others and being deceived themselves. But you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, recalling the people from whom you learned it; and recalling too how from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which can give you the wisdom that leads to deliverance through trusting in Yeshua the Messiah. All Scripture is God-breathed and is valuable for teaching the truth, convicting of sin, correcting faults and training in right living; thus anyone who belongs to God may be fully equipped for every good work. II Timothy 3:12-17 (CJB)

Animal Attack Reports 2013: Expect More, And Expect Worse Attacks.

Within months, the Fourth Seal of Revelation should open, where animal attacks or animalistic human attacks against humans should increase. Over the weekend I interviewed people about animal issues. Their reports were odd, it's like the wild animals are agitated.

When he broke the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living being say, "Go!" I looked, and there in front of me was a pallid, sickly-looking [chloros-green] horse. Its rider's name was Death, and Sh'ol followed behind him. They were given authority to kill one-quarter of the world by war, by famine, by plagues and with the wild animals of the earth. Revelation 6:7-8 (CJB)

1. War
2. Famine
3. Plagues
4. Wild Animal Attacks
Psalm 91 details much of the Fourth Seal's events, plus the animal attacks.

You who live in the shelter of 'Elyon, who spend your nights in the shadow of Shaddai, who say to ADONAI, "My refuge! My fortress! My God, in whom I trust!" he will rescue you from the trap of the hunter and from the plague of calamities; he will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his truth is a shield and protection. You will not fear the terrors of night or the arrow that flies by day [1. War],  or the plague that roams in the dark [3. Plague], or the scourge [2. Famine] that wreaks havoc at noon.  A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand; but it won't come near you. Only keep your eyes open, and you will see how the wicked are punished. For you have made ADONAI, the Most High, who is my refuge, your dwelling-place.  10 No disaster will happen to you, no calamity will come near your tent; for he will order his angels to care for you and guard you wherever you go. They will carry you in their hands, so that you won't trip on a stone. You will tread down lions and snakes, young lions and serpents you will trample underfoot [4. Animal Attacks]. "Because he loves me, I will rescue him; because he knows my name, I will protect him. He will call on me, and I will answer him. I will be with him when he is in trouble. I will extricate him and bring him honor. I will satisfy him with long life and show him my salvation." Psalm 91 (CJB) (Emphasis added)

It’s interesting to note that many verses from Isaiah 11 and 65 talk about wild animals being peaceful during the upcoming millennium. Things will be different this fall, because something or someone is agitating the animal kingdom. There are reports of deer standing around in the open during the day. There are reports of birds attacking birds.

Yogi bear stole a trash dumpster on Saturday. Yogi's getting more aggressive.

Here is a synopsis of recent attacks.

The recent lion attack is yet another example of animals attacking humans (from pets to wild animals). There is a prophecy in Revelation that could be construed as predicting this in the time of the Great Tribulation:
A South African farmer that kept a hippo as a pet was recently killed by it at feeding time also. There was a recent fatal shark attack in New Zealand but those of the coast of Florida have been lucky so far by the recent north migration that has thousands of sharks just off shore. IF anyone knows of other recent attacks on humans (pets or wild animals) this would be a good place to post them (including new attacks going forward).

The lion that killed an intern in a California animal park had escaped from its cage, and broke Dianna Hanson's neck while she was cleaning its outer enclosure, authorities say. "The gate of the cage was partially open, which allowed the lion called Cous Cous," who weighed 550 pounds, "to lift it up with his paw," the coroner says, adding that the attack killed Hanson immediately. She had been on the phone with a co-worker just before the attack; the co-worker worried when the call ended suddenly, the AP reports.
My opinion: 3.2.2014 Update: (Therion-Greek) metaphor: a brutal, bestial man, savage, ferocious
Expect wild human or animal attacks to increase dramatically this fall. Be aware that there could be hybrid creatures agitating the wild animals. I have two hunter friends that recently saw a Mothman out near a dark zone in the forest. As Tehom breaks up, these hybrid creatures will appear. A Mothman is not your friend, so stay away, and pray for protection.

And be aware that certain regions of the forest are danger zones. Low-level demons work in the cities, where liberalism runs amuck. There is no need for the Satan to station higher authority demons in cities. Whereas, there is historical evidence that the Satan has fought spiritual battles in rural settings. Stay away from the battle zones! This is the wrong time to claim new territory for HaShem. Instead, we must plan to cede some territories and re-gather elsewhere in safe zones.
Diligent prayer will direct you to the safe zones across the world. Please don’t listen to Christian friends about safe zones for you, and your family. Pray directly, in Yeshua’s name, for leadership and direction. Learn to hear the shepherd’s voice, His word, directly for yourself.

Petrus Romanus: Mariology or Mariolatry: Which One Is The Pope Espousing?

Many of you know that I’ve been patiently waiting for the new Pope to clearly state his agenda, before I re-start my second book. I can’t write a trilogy about the end times without knowing where the Pope stands on eschatology. Our new Pope is beginning to voice himself, and I believe that he moving toward his goal: Hybridized Mysticism.

When Jorge Mario Beroglio chose the name Pope Francis, frankly, I was amused. Then, when I learned that the Pope came from a Jesuit background, I knew we expected fireworks. The Jesuits have always been the enforcers in the Roman Catholic Church. If you needed an arm twisted, or a person persuaded, you called the Jesuits. That’s why Jesuit Universities and dioceses were always located near governmental power centers. I knew that Pope Francis needed to coalesce his power, and then he would preach mysticism. After lightening struck the Vatican twice, as the former pope resigned, all I needed to do was to patiently wait...

I believe that Pope Francis will lead the world down a strange path of Mariolatry soon.
Pope Francis’ background: This article seems to be factual.

Newly elected Pope Francis the 1st has several connections to Peter the Roman, the final pope mentioned in the St. Malachy prophecy involving the end of the world tribulation time period.

Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Buenos Aires, Argentina was elected to be the 266th Pope of the Roman Catholic Church on 13 March 2013. Although he was born in Argentina, his parents are native Italian [Roman] immigrants.

Peter the Roman connections became obvious when Cardinal Bergoglio immediately choose the papal name Francis I, to honor Saint Francis of Assisi. website clearly indicates the original name Saint Francis was born with in 1181 is Francesco di Pietro di Bernardone.

Pietro is Italian for Peter. The middle name for Saint Francis of Assisi was Peter.

Further research into the name Francis I reveals more startling connections to Peter the Roman. 

Cardinal Bergoglio is the first Pope to use the name Francis I, but has documented additional world leaders who were originally named Francis I, separate from the Pope.

Francis I - Holy Roman Emperor from 1745-1765

Francis I was the Holy Roman Emperor and Grand Duke of Tuscany in Italy. He was the father of the deposed and later executed Marie Antoinette, Queen of France.

And even more mysterious is the connection to Francis I - Emperor of Austria who was also the LAST and Final Holy Roman Emperor.

He ruled as Francis II of the Holy Roman Empire from 1792 until 6 August 1806, when he dissolved the Holy Roman Empire after the disastrous defeat by Napoleon at the Battle of Austerlitz. In 1804, he had founded the Austrian Empire and became Francis I (Franz I.), the first Emperor of Austria (Kaiser von Österreich), ruling from 1804 to 1835, so later he was named the one and only Doppelkaiser (double emperor) in history. For the two years between 1804 and 1806, Francis used the title and style by the grace of God elected Roman Emperor, always August, hereditary Emperor of Austria and he was called the Emperor of Germany and Austria. He was the Apostolic King of Hungary, Croatia and Bohemia as Francis I.

Now we have multiple connections of Pope Francis I, not only to the name Peter, but also to the name Roman,  who is the 112th and final Pope mentioned in the St. Malachy Prophecy.

A 3rd Peter the Roman connection to Francis I is now evident in light of the fact the Holy Roman Empire was dissolved during the reign of a leader named Francis I.

My opinion: We will experience Mariolatry from Pope Francis. Whenever people elevate Mary to god-like status, problems ensue.
How do I define Mariolatry?

What was Pope Francis doing when he prayed to Mary?

What is the angelic connection?
Mary’s pregnancy was announced by angels. I believe that there will be fallen angels and UFO connections to the emergence of the Antichrist. (This is a weird source, beware. According to my Roman Catholic friends, there is an overpowering spiritual presence in Fatima and Medjugorje.)

Here is a recent news report from Pope Francis (Please note how he is urging Muslim/Christian unity under the guise of Mariolatry, using an unscriptural veneration of Mary prayer).
Pope Francis greets Muslims and urges both Christians and Muslims to promote mutual respect.

Before reciting the Angelus prayer the Pope recalled today’s feast of St. Clare of Assisi who left everything to consecrate herself to Christ in poverty, following in the footsteps of St. Francis.
He said this saint gives us a beautiful witness of today’s gospel and she helps us, together with the Blessed Virgin Mary, to live it out, each one according to their own vocation.

After the Angelus prayer, Pope Francis departed from his prepared remarks to recall that this coming Thursday is the solemnity of Mary’s Assumption into Heaven and said on that day we will honour Her. He then said he wished to send greetings to Muslims, our brothers, throughout the world who have just finished celebrating the end of the holy month of Ramadan. Referring to his earlier message released to mark this event, the Pope said he hoped that Christians and Muslims will strive to "promote mutual respect, especially through the education of the new generations."

The Day Of Trouble: Climb Atop A Rock, And Not Underneath A Rock.

After the Blood Moon Tetrads of 2014-2015, you will be frightened. When events, like Revelation’s Sixth Seal, persuade you to climb under a rock, instead pray Psalm 27:5

Then I watched as he broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake, the sun turned black as sackcloth worn in mourning, and the full moon became blood-red. The stars fell from heaven to earth just as a fig tree drops its figs when shaken by a strong wind. The sky receded like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved from its place. Then the earth's kings, the rulers, the generals, the rich and the mighty - indeed, everyone, slave and free - hid himself in caves and among the rocks in the mountains, and said to the mountains and rocks, "Fall on us, and hide us from the face of the One sitting on the throne and from the fury of the Lamb! For the Great Day of their fury has come, and who can stand?" Revelation 6:12-17 (CJB)
Why should you hide up high, upon a rock? Because HaShem specifically tells you how to hide, in plain sight.

For he will conceal me in his shelter on the day of trouble, he will hide me in the folds of his tent, he will set me high on a rock.  Psalm 27:5 (CJB)

יִצְפְּנֵ֨נִי ׀
will conceal
his tabernacle
the day
of trouble
will hide
the secret
of his tent
A rock
will lift

What do these words mean?

1.      “Will Conceal”-Concealed within this word is the word for face. Turning toward HaShem’s face is better than climbing under a rock.

2.      “His Tabernacle”-the literal text states a temporary Fall Festival dwelling called a Sukkah. Sukkah’s are flimsy and leave an opening to observe the stars, and not protect you from asteroids.

3.      Yom is a day, often associated with Ra’ah, which is adversity, or evil, or calamity.

4.      Ra’ah is adversity, or evil, or calamity, and here it’s associated with the Day of the Lord.

5.      Concealed within this word is “Esther,” from the famous hidden story of salvation for the Jews.

6.      Concealed, again, within this word is “Esther,” from the famous hidden story of salvation for the Jews.

7.      “Ohello”-is the word for tent, hardly a protection from falling asteroids.

8.      “Betzer”-is a rock where you will place your tent.

9.      “Will Lift”-is advise that your tent will be in the heights, where everyone can see you, yet you will be protected.

Now that you understand your plan of safety, you may listen to this report. Nothing in this report is verified; however, it seems to make sense. I am not recommending their findings.


How Many Different Zombie Apocalypses Are We Experiencing?

I submit that many of those around you are turning into Zombies. This is because we placate and medicate problems rather than address our need for a Messiah. When the flash mobs arrive in your town, run away! They may want chaos or government benefits, it doesn’t matter. If you join the mobs, the government will shoot you. Regardless of your circumstances, run away, because you serve HaShem, and not worldly leaders. He will feed and protect you. Let the Zombies roam unabated, for your Messiah is returning soon.

What are the attributes of Zombies?
  • Zombies have a one track mind and only think about one thing: Consumption.
  • Zombies only take what they want (typically brains). They are not productive members of society.
  • Zombies gather in large hordes that roam the streets, terrorizing hardworking citizens.
  • The zombie virus is highly contagious. Once exposed, it is very difficult (if not impossible) to be cured.
  • Zombies have an insatiable appetite and will stop at nothing to feed their cravings.
  • Once a zombie outbreak occurs, it is incredibly difficult to regain order and normalcy.
  • Zombies don’t make a lot of sense when they speak. They have a severe lack of communication skills.
(List from Creek Stewart,  )

My contention is that our world leaders are creating an underclass of Zombies, where healthy active children are forced to take drugs like Ritalin, and depressed adults are offered Psychoactive drugs, often called PAMS (Valium = diazepam, Dalmane = flurazepam, Ativan = lorazepam). Our government pays people to become obese, drug-addicted, alcohol-addicted, and unproductive by offering Social Security to anybody with a claim. While many people need SSI Disability, many more abuse it. Proof is that SSI Disability has become the eighth largest state.

Once the masses become bored, they often become agitated too. I believe that someone wants the masses agitated.
'Flash mob' of thieves causes chaotic night in Hollywood
Youths summoned via social media rampage through the tourist mecca as the LAPD's attention is focused on demonstrations elsewhere.

July 17, 2013|By Marisa Gerber, Joel Rubin and Andrew Blankstein

The rallying cries shot out across Twitter and Facebook on Tuesday evening.
"Take the riot to Hollywood," one expletive-laden message on Twitter beseeched. "Hollywood. 7:30."

That invitation for trouble and others like it, police believe, were the seeds of a bizarre, chaotic night in the city's entertainment mecca that caught the LAPD off guard and left city officials scrambling to assure tourists and revelers, once again, that Hollywood is a safe place to be.

“White Girl Bleed A Lot” An interview with author Colin Flaherty

I submit that Wall Street is full of Zombies. Many pundits agree with me.

5 signs Wall Street’s zombie apocalypse is at hand by Brett Arends
Commentary: Undead money pros mindlessly repeating upbeat phrases

“Please help me. I have just finished watching ‘The Walking Dead’ on AMC and ‘World War Z’ in the cinema, and I’ve started to suspect that my money manager may be a zombie. I’ve been watching business TV and I think a lot of the people on Wall Street must be zombies as well. How can I be sure? Are there any tell-tale signs?”  — Yours, Terrified in Tuscaloosa
Dear Terrified,

Thanks for your email. I think you are on to something.
Some of us have suspected for a number of years that the Zombie Apocalypse has begun. (Have you noticed, for example, how few people actually think any more? They’re just walking around like… well, like zombies.)

Ryan Jorgensen - Jorgo /

It’s especially bad on Wall Street. Actually, a zombie epidemic would explain a lot—especially the tendency of financial commentators to be so nonsensically upbeat.
If you study zombie-lore from Haiti, you’ll find that classic zombies have lost all free will. They are basically automatons, doing the same things, over and over again, mindlessly.
Does that remind you of the denizens of any Street you know?

Unlike a zombie, most M.B.A. money-managers can actually form complete sentences, but what they have to say isn’t much more intelligent than the grunting of a B-movie monster. Here are five phrases that are a surefire giveaway you’re dealing with a financial zombie.

1. “Mmmmwwaaaahhhh.... Cash on sidelines... market going higher.”
You can pretty much switch on any business program on TV during market hours and hear this sentence being repeated like a mantra. Guess what? There is no “money on the sidelines” waiting to come into this market and magically drive share prices further up. There can’t be. Why not? Because every time someone buys a share, someone else has to sell it to them. As a result, the share and the cash simply change hands. No money has “come into” the market at all.

This is a matter of simple logic, yet the cash-on-the-sidelines mantra refuses to die. What is the explanation? Zombies!
2. “Aaaarrrgghhh... great rotation coming... out of bonds... into stocks.”

This is a first cousin of the “money on the sidelines” argument. This argument is that “everyone” is loaded up to the gunwales with bonds and that they are all going to sell their bonds and buy stocks. Alas, the premise is nonsense for exactly the same reason that the “cash-on-the-sidelines” argument is nonsense. “Everyone” can’t sell bonds and buy stocks, because every time someone sells a bond, someone else has to buy it, and every time someone buys a stock, someone else has to sell it. The cards change hands, but the deck remains the same. Zombie!

HaShem's opinion: What are our attributes?

The night is almost over, the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and arm ourselves with the weapons of light. Let us live properly, as people do in the daytime - not partying and getting drunk, not engaging in sexual immorality and other excesses, not quarrelling and being jealous. Instead, clothe yourselves with the Lord Yeshua the Messiah; and don't waste your time thinking about how to provide for the sinful desires of your old nature. Romans 13:12-14 (CJB)
So the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials and how to hold the wicked until the Day of Judgment while continuing to punish them, especially those who follow their old natures in lust for filth and who despise authority. Presumptuous and self-willed, these false teachers do not tremble at insulting angelic beings; whereas angels, though stronger and more powerful, do not bring before the Lord an insulting charge against them. But these people, acting without thinking, like animals without reason, born to be captured and destroyed, insult things about which they have no knowledge. When they are destroyed, their destruction will be total – II Peter 2:9-12 (CJB)

My opinion: Invest in your faith in HaShem. Nothing else matters or makes sense anymore.
