I realise that many of my readers are still in massive denial about the impending economic disaster that is about to strike the world so this is my counsel to those who are now prepared to start listening even at this late hour, with an illustration from the Bible on how to be content with a minimalist lifestyle having made the necessary preparations for survival.
"Whoever drinks of the mayim (water) that I shall give him will never thirst. But the mayim (water) that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of mayim (water) springing up into everlasting chayim (life)" (John 4:14, NKJV).
If you've been following the news you will know that Spain is close to becoming the next Greece and that when the Spanish economy collapses, so will the €uro. And when the €uro collapses, a dominoes effect will be set in motion that will see the collapse of the U$ Dollar along with all other currencies globally that are not backed by gold, silver or other precious metal like platinum. At the most, some pundits like Sorros are saying, the €uro has probably less than three months to live. One thing is sure, it is going and when it goes the world will experience an economic depression the likes of which the world has never seen before.
What more can I do other than to call everyone to repentance now? Get right with Yahweh, get your life in order spiritually, economically and practically. I know I have said this a hundred times already but some of you may thank me for doing so as they make a last minute decision to do the right thing for themselves and their families. It's these I principally care about now.
Yesterday I got an email from a minister pleading for economic help to prevent foreclosure on his home. I nearly wrote to him, to warn him not to expect Yahweh's blessings or rescue until he had returned the money he had defrauded his customers many years ago and get a proper job instead of financially parasitising his already struggling followers, but I knew he would not listen. No one can expect Yahweh's approbation who does not act with integrity.
Yesterday I was asking Yahweh to instruct me on the most important thing that we should be doing now and He again gave me a vision that I have now seen several times: a tap (faucet) with one or two drops of water coming from it. If you have not taken steps to store and purify water (distillers are best, gravity filters next best), you need to do that now. Please see my PROPHECY ON DROUT. Ironic, really, because it has been pouring with rain recently here.
A water shortage in many places will not be the only problem, though - there is going to be a more widespread of shortage of food both because prices will triple or quadruple or because it simply isn't available. Start cutting back on how much you eat and storing the surplass, enough to last you a minimum of three months. Make preparations in all areas of life as if you needed to survive without any kind of help from anyone and had no acces to banks or shops - be ready to be self-sufficient for three months. Since that is probably not now possible for those taking steps at this last moment, store things which you can trade and barter that you can lay your hands on, the same way the Greeks are learning to do as they steer away from using the €uro. Whatever currency you formerly used, be it the U$, Australian or Canadian Dollar, the Scandinavian Crown, British Pound Sterling, or whatever, get used to doing without it becaause by year's end it will probably be worthless. If you haven't got goods to barter - things that people will need in a crisis - then at least get a stock of Silver or Gold with which to trade or buy new currency when the current one is replaced. Our world is about to change completely.
And if I need to say it, if you have any debts, mortgages, etc., clear them now so that you don't have to foreclose on your home and/or essential possessions. And make sure you have somewhere to go in the country away from the city - it's going to be a dog-eats-dog hell in built-up areas.
For those of you who think it is impossible to live simpler and more inexpensively, the choice is really to do it now of your own free will or be forced to by circumstances. Above all, learn to be content with less and with simpler and healthier foods. Ask Yahweh what your new 'manna' diet is to consist of and start getting used to it.
When the Israelites were given this heavenly diet of manna they were not at all happy because there was none of the variety to which they had been accustomed during their Egyptian bondage - they wanted the familiar and not the comparitive blandness of manna. In response, Yahweh gave them their wish - bird meat in the form of quail - so much that at length they not only became sick of their new rich diet but actually became ill too. In spite of the abundance of this meat, it turned rotten, for they attempted to store it, but without refridgeration or preservatives it was impossible (Ex.16:13; Num.11:19-20).
We have grown fat and sick on an over-abundance of low quality, unhealthy, cancer-inducing foods. We should consider it a blessing that we are going to be forced to abandon this terrible Western diet and replace it with simpler, blander but healthier foods that people in poor countries have been forced to accept for generations. And just as manna could not be hoarded, so we must learn to once again rely on Yahweh for our provision, not from food miraculously provided from heaven, of course (though it'ds possible), but on eating and storing the right kinds of food that Yahweh inspires and directs us to use to replace our old eating lifestyle and larder. This mean living close to the Ruach (Spirit) and responding to Yahweh's leading.
For the last year and-a-bit I have been posting hundreds of articles on my Facebook page to inform my thousand or so friends about healthy living as I make the transition myself along with my family. We have always lived pretty simply because of a very small income - colourlessly some might accuse - but we have always had enough. Even so we still eat too much and we are paying for it. I learned as a former investigator of Buddhism, before becoming a Christian, that you should never eat more than two-thirds of your stomach's capacity, and from the Chinese I learned that more frequent smaller meals are better than fewer larger ones. Here the Ruach (Spirit) must instruct too, not only in what we should eat, but how much and how regularly. One by one I have been abandoning the foodstuffs of Babylon (which has not been easy personally) and turning to the kinds of healthy food I have always despised and spurned in the past. When the crunch comes, hopefully I will be ready. Will you?
In the new world that is coming we will not be able to take for granted the things which were in abundantly supply before, however unhealthy they were. And I speak not only of junk food but of junk drinks too. With our water supplies already poisoned (if you drink water off the grid in an urban setting), we must learn to purify water too and make that our staple drink, not all the destructive sodas or alcoholic beverages that are passed off as 'good', or the pasturised cow milk poison. I used to be a 'milkoholic' but have completely quit that now, and for the better - if you drink milk at all, go for raw milk...but be careful, you might be arrested for doing so in the USA. They want to keep you poisoned because their goal is massive world depopulation.
My vision of the dripping tap (faucet) is not only about a shortage of physical water, of course, but of spiritual too. In the days of physical abundance people unfortunately turn away from Yahweh, failing to view abundance as a potential curse instead of a blessing. The spiritually awake appreciate the times of lack as the times of infinite spiritual possibilities. Not only is the economic landscape going to change but families are going to too. These difficulties are going to throw many families back together that have drifted apart because of abundance, and provoke those who are spiritually thirsty to come seeking for the waters of life again. This is good news.
We are now in the third month of the biblical calendar or June in the Roman Gregorian one. Already traditional Christian churches are talking about the 'summer slump' because members are too busy enjoying nature and the warmer weather to have much time for spiritual activities together. But I don't see anyone talking about the summer crash. This is likely the very last summer according to the way things used to be done. Come the autumn or fall, things will start to be looking very, very different. Enjoy the summer while you can but don't just have a vaccation - get your houses in order, get prepared. If you haven't done so now, you will thank Yahweh later if you do so now.
