PHI.4:19 “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”

Pat Buchanan on Wall Street: 'What we are witnessing today is how empires end'
Posted: September 19, 2008 By Patrick J. Buchanan
The Crash of 2008, which is now wiping out trillions of dollars of our people's wealth, is, like the Crash of 1929, likely to mark the end of one era and the onset of another. The new era will see a more sober and much diminished America. The "Omnipower" and "Indispensable Nation" we heard about in all the hubris and braggadocio following our Cold War victory is history.
We Are In One Of The Great Vortexes Of History
Earl Of Stirling
Every so often the human race, or major parts thereof, goes through major life changing events: wars, revolutions, economic crisis/recessions/depressions. It is clear that we are now in one of the largest of such events; that we are in a great vortex and we have not even gone half way into this experience.
Terms like "global financial meltdown", "global financial catastrophe", "World War III", "global depression" are becoming standard in describing where we are and where we are headed.
Mushroom Cloud Over Wall Street
By Mike Whitney
No one knows what will happen next. We are in uncharted waters.
"The Bush administration sought unchecked power from Congress to buy $700 billion in bad mortgage investments from financial companies in what would be an unprecedented government intrusion into the markets. Through his plan, Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson aims to avert a credit freeze that would bring the financial system and the world's largest economy to a standstill. The bill would prevent courts from reviewing actions taken under its authority.”
I am reminded of a story I heard many years ago. During the era before commercial air travel, travel between Europe and the United States was done through ocean going vessels. On one such trip a ferocious storm came up while out at sea. The storm was so bad that it did actually threaten the ship and its passengers. One of the women passengers on board who was very distraught, went to the captain of the ship and asked; "Oh, Captain, what are we going to do?" He said, "I guess we'll just have to trust the Lord." She then said, "Oh my God! Has it come to that?"
Well my friends, it has come or is coming very soon “to that”. This storm is not an accident; it has been planned for years, and something which God is allowing to happen with His permission. Never forget EPH.6:12 “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
Where is all this leading? Eventually, and not long from now, to the rise of the antichrist and the mark of the beast. (See our studies sections for more information regarding the rise of the antichrist and the mark of the beast.)
In the end it is really going to come down to faith in God. There will be those who reject the antichrist and his mark, and those who receive the antichrist and his mark and it will involve the financial system. REV.13:17 “And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”
Have faith in God and His Word. MAT.28:20 “and, lo, I (Jesus) am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.” And where do you get this faith? ROM.10:17 “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” God’s word from the Bible and also His word through His prophets today.
God bless and keep you faithfull!
MAT.6:24-34 “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.”
