The Current Crisis
Does it relate to Prophecy? If so, how?
The answers may surprise you!
Written By: Bob

This will be the first part of a short series of articles (or briefs) on this topic. As I add new parts I will put links to the additional parts at the bottom of this page.

The reason I am doing this is so that I can get some of the main points and reports that I have out to you more quickly.

The first item concerns a report that came out back on March 14, 2008. This report was not of the type that one would rush to tell everyone about. The reason being that it was based on reported "leads" that came out of a closed door session of Congress on March 13, 2008. The report, as you will see, pertained to future events (Sept '08 and beyond). As a result of this and the fact that reports of "leads" are not often verifiable. One would normally approach it as a wait-and-see type item. This is to try and stay away from being an alarmist and wind up discrediting the prophecy ministry. We still have no way of knowing how much of this report is true or will actually happen; but considering the current crisis and additional reports that I am seeing, I feel it is time to make this information available. By doing so I hope that everyone will be in prayer about it and for our nation. I further hope that it will help others to see the need to prepare for the possibility of these things actually happening.

All of the above being said, I would ask that you click on the link below, read the report, and then return here for more information, reports, and articles.

Closed Door Session of Congress

While what you have (hopefully) just read may seem extreme, I must stress that the first item on the list has already happened - the collapse of the U.S. economy. It's important to note that the collapse even began in the month specified.

I think we all know or would agree that our government (U.S.) is not known for it's accuracy in these matters. That should make us wonder whether or not these things are being planned in order to bring about the changes listed in the rest of the report. One can only hope and pray that this is not the case. If these things are being planned, then I can only see two (main) things for us to do. First and foremost is to be in daily prayer about it, and secondly to prepare ourselves the best we can. While I have all the faith in the world that as a child of God, He will take care of His children. I also believe that God expects us to do our part to prepare - just as Lot removed himself from Sodom and Noah built the ark. I am a firm believer that I serve a God that will reveal things to His children in time to prepare and He expects us to do so.

I will try and cover each item in the above report in this and in additional parts/updates. For now I just want to cover a few that seem to have at least some supporting evidence already.

Let's begin with the matter of "Civil War" or, at the very least, massive civil unrest happening. I would have to pose one question on this as follows. If the government was not expecting this to happen, then why - for the first time - have they assigned a brigade of some 4,000 infantrymen to the Northern Command? In other words, these army personnel have been assigned to different areas throughout the U.S. as of Oct 1, '08. Please read the article below from the Army Times.

Infantry Brigade Assigned to Northern Command

Next I would like to address the topics of the North American Union (merger of the United States with Canada and Mexico) and the "Amero".

As many might know the topic of a North American Union being formed has been around for quite a while. It is a subject which is commonly dismissed as just being a lie that has been made up by conspiracy theorists. I can understand that view in that no one in America wants to believe that such a thing could happen to us. All I can say is that with the direction everything is headed, I am afraid we may soon find out that that opinion is simply a matter of being in denial. Again, one can only hope and pray that this is not the case. As much as I am against this happening I cannot dismiss the possibility.

Right now there are agreements in place covering almost every aspect of governance already signed and in place. Such agreements include, - but are not limited to - borders, transportation, energy, governing committees, and many more. The only item that is really left to be worked out is the merging of economies. This fact should make all of us watch these developments very closely since the economies are being destroyed right now.

I would like to give you two things to consider here -

  1. If the economy continues to crumble it won't take very much longer for it to reach a point of desperation. At which time the "selling point" (for the merger) could easily be that the only options we have left is to merge or watch the final collapse and demise of America.
  2. If the government did indeed know about the coming collapse of the economy back in March; then why - if their true concern was the preservation of America as we know it - did they not begin aggressive measures then to prevent this from happening?

I cannot, in honesty, say that this merger will happen; but I can say that there are enough indicators to warrant closer attention and (at the very least) more questioning of what is done, being done (in the works), or has not been done and why. I have seen and read a lot about this topic (North American Union) in the past two years and to my dismay I find it more believable and plausible all the time. Again, I am not saying this merger will happen, only that we need to be watching ever more closely at events as they unfold.

As far as the "Amero" is concerned, this too, seems to be a more frequent topic of discussion. Since I have not seen one of these (Ameros) personally, I cannot attest to the existence of this money being fact. However, I can offer what I have seen and read in the articles below.

I have also, in the course of my studies and research, seen and read at least one article about the setting up of camps in the U.S. I came across the first article over two years ago. Below is a link to the article.

Gulags For American Citizens In Final Planning Stages

I don't think that the idea of the government rounding up individuals in case of unrest is hard to imagine (at least for me). We already know that the Department of Homeland Security has a list of people and are adding to it daily. As an example of how out of control that list is. I offer the following article.

Maryland Nuns Branded as Suspected Terrorists

All I can say is that even in case of severe civil unrest I still cannot picture a 70 year old nun running down the street after a congressman with an M-16 in her hand. I don't know about anyone else; but just trying to picture that brings a big grin to my face.

On a more serious note though, I would sincerely ask that if these things do begin to happen, for everyone to keep those of us who operate these prophecy sites and report on these things be upheld in your prayers. It would be easy to picture us being added to that list at some point. My view on this possibility is simple - I will continue what I am doing, the way I am doing it no matter what happens. My work will not end until the Lord allows it, and if it ends then I can have peace about it knowing that I have completed the work (I feel) that He has given me to do. Just remember, we as Christians, will be the winners in the end!! I know, I read the last chapter!!! Nobody can take that away from us!!

I would like to leave you with two things to consider - until I post the next part.

In reading the first item below, I would like to bring to your attention the meaning of two numbers (as they relate to the Bible and prophecy). The number three (3) - this number is defined as representing "Divine Completeness". The best example being the Trinity. Next, the number seven (7) - this number is considered to represent perfection.

If we combine these two numbers we have (in my opinion) "Divine and Perfect Completeness or Completion". As an example I would mention that in Revelation there are three sets of seven judgments each (seals, trumpets, and vials), at the end of which the tribulation and judgment is finished.

  1. The current "crash" of the stock market began on September 29, 2008. Would it be a coincidence then that the total number of points that the market fell that day was 777? That day (Sept. 29, '08) was also the start of the Feast of Trumpets (at 6:00 P.M.). Is this also a coincidence? I can only speak for myself and I say no - I don't believe in coincidence. This may very well be a sign that it is time to prepare and be ready because - "the time is at hand".
  2. We should all take particular notice of the book of James, chapter number five (5). In this chapter, James tells of the financial upheaval that will occur just prior to the start of the tribulation. If we take this a step further, the next book would be I Peter. This book tells of the coming of the Lord (the rapture) and the next book, II Peter contains a description of the judgments to come in the tribulation. These appear together and in the exact order that they are to occur. Again I ask - coincidence? Not to me.

Again, I am not saying these things will happen. In fact I certainly hope that they don't. If they do happen though and I fail to inform others, then I will have failed my God. I cannot let that happen. I would simply ask everyone that reads this to please put these matters at the top of your prayer list daily.

For now - Keep looking up and may God Bless!! -- Bob
