Concerning shortages: Michael Snyder, editor of economiccollapseblog.com, recently reported:
- Greece has had rationing of sunflower oil and sugar in 2022.
- Spain has had sporadic shortages of eggs, milk, and dairy products.
- Italy may soon start rationing natural gas to some large industrial users.
- Germany may soon start rationing natural gas to industrial users, and that could put large numbers of employees out of work.
- America had a recent survey that found about 60% of Americans are living from paycheck to paycheck, and layoffs are beginning to increase.
- The UN has warned that the world may be facing an “unprecedented global hunger crisis.”
Here are more articles along that seem relevant.
One, concerning world government: on July 1, 2022, World Net Daily reported that Biden’s Chief of the National Economic Council, Brian Deese, said, “This (high gasoline prices) is about the future of the liberal world order, and we have to stand firm.”
Deese added that “while we move through this transition (from more than 190 sovereign nations to a one-world government by 2030 or sooner), we also have made historic economic progress.”
Pres. Biden’s economic advisor is clear: The high price of gasoline is part of a deliberate plan to transform America from a powerful superpower into a weaker nation in the liberal world order (anti-conservative, anti-national sovereignty, liberal New World Order).
America’s wealth is being redistributed by sending it to other nations to buy very high-priced oil that could be produced in the U.S. at a much lower price.
It is globalism first and America last.
High-paying U.S. jobs have been deliberately destroyed, people in other nations are going hungry, some are starving, inflation is soaring in the U.S., food shortages may be coming to the U.S., etc.
America and most of the nations on earth are in a transition period between the old normal and the New World Order.
In America, the transition is from nationalism to globalism, from Christian values to non-Christian values, from fossil fuels to green energy, from freedom of speech to censorship, from freedom of religion to persecution, from capitalism to socialism or something similar, from a non-surveillance society to a surveillance society, etc. (and, according to the Bible and UN stated goals, from more than 190 sovereign nations to ten groups of nations with a leader, czar or king over each one who will ultimately surrender their militaries and power to the Antichrist.).
I believe this transition began on Jan. 1, 2016, when the “Transforming our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development” went into effect, and liberal politicians plan to complete the transition by 2030 or sooner.
Timewise, the world is almost halfway through this transition (if it stays on schedule), and major changes will be necessary in the future. Every nation is not transitioning at the same speed, but every nation has the same deadline (2030 or sooner).
I believe the Pre-Trib Rapture is the right view, and every individual on earth needs to genuinely accept Jesus as their Lord and Saviour. Those that don’t will be eternally sorry they didn’t.
Two, concerning shortages: the high price of fuel, food, utilities, etc.: on June 27, 2022, Pres. Biden was at the G7 summit when French Pres. Macron told him OPEC’s top oil-exporting nations are at or near maximum production capacity now.
Saudi Arabia can increase their production some (about 150,000 barrels per day), but not nearly as much as the world needs.
If this is true, and he continues to restrain production in the U.S., it is easy to believe that he is deliberately weakening the U.S.
The 1,000,000 barrels per day he is drawing from America’s strategic preserves will eventually stop, and the availability of oil and natural gas will decrease, or people will have to come up with other sources.
Three, concerning high fuel prices: on June 30, 2022, Pres. Biden was asked how long Americans could expect to pay $5 a gallon for gasoline at the pump, and he replied as long as it takes to get Russia out of Ukraine.
Pres. Biden intends to keep blocking America’s energy independence and blame it on the Russians.
Continued high fuel prices mean continued high prices of everything (a worsening of global hunger, famine, pestilence, etc.).
Biden’s policies make it easy for many prophecy teachers to believe that the stage is being set for world government and the Tribulation Period.
Four, concerning inflation: at the G7 meeting, Biden said prices are up in every nation, and America has the strongest economy. Economic experts said this is wrong. They said inflation is less in Canada, France, Germany, and Japan than it is in the U.S. (England is the only G7 nation that has a higher inflation rate than the U.S.)
He lied, misspoke, or doesn’t know the facts, so we can expect America’s economic problems to continue.
Five, concerning weakening America: lately, there have been several reports that the U.S. military is having trouble recruiting troops, the situation has reached a crisis level, and the military has lowered its standards to meet its needs. As usual, officials blame everything but the facts. They say they are having trouble recruiting young people because it is easy for them to get a job, today’s young people have a poor attitude about service, etc.
They ignore the fact that some object to being jabbed; some object to forced gender-sensitive training, some don’t want to be in the military because many officials criticize the military, some don’t respect or want to serve under a mentally challenged Commander in Chief, etc.
So, the once-powerful U.S. military is becoming understaffed, less educated, less motivated, weaker, and less able to fight, and to make matters worse, the military is trying to discharge about 40,000 unjabbed National Guardsmen.
Six, concerning the days of Lot: on July 2, 2022, it was reported that a study of 54 documented cases of Monkey Pox that had been treated at four different health centers in London, UK, over a 12-day period in May found that:
- All fifty-four cases were men.
- Their median age was 41 years.
- All fifty-four had sex with other men.
- Ninety percent admitted to having sex with a new partner in the last 3 weeks.
- More than half admitted to sex with more than five partners in the last twelve weeks.
- Five were hospitalized, and the others recovered at home.
- One-fourth also tested positive for gonorrhea or chlamydia.
Globalists want to impose this lifestyle upon the world, and it is a sign of the end of the age.
Seven, concerning the covenant of peace with many that will begin the Tribulation Period: Pres. Biden recently said, “I’m going to Israel (on July 14, 2022) to meet with the Israelis to confirm the unbreakable bond Israel and the United States have. Part of the purpose of this trip to the Middle East (on July 13-16) is to deepen Israel’s integration in the region, which I think I am going to be able to do, which is good for peace and good for Israeli security.”
Peace and security means peace and safety.
Paul said, “When they [unbelievers] shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them [the unbelievers] as travail upon a woman with child, and they [the unbelievers] shall not escape” (I Thess. 5:3).
I don’t think this trip will produce a covenant of peace and safety, but it is a dangerous step in that direction, especially with the political situation that exists in Israel today (a very liberal Prime Minister that supports the Two-State solution).
Eight, concerning how Christians should respond to current events: on July 1, 2022, it was reported that Roman Catholic Archbishop Vigano urged families to resist the “Build Back Better” agenda and to “rebuild what has been destroyed”:
- The family,
- The bond of marriage,
- The moral education of children,
- Love of country,
- Dedication to hard work,
- Fraternal charity, especially toward those who are the most defenseless and needy,
- The sanctity of life from conception to natural death,
- The existence of just two sexes,
- The protection of children from corruption.
Nine, concerning the return of Jews to the Promised Land: it was recently reported that as of the end of May 2022, more than 20,000 Ukrainian refugees have arrived in Israel, 36,000 others want to relocate to Israel, and this is in addition to Jews returning from other parts of the world (Jer. 31:8-10).
Ten, it is common knowledge that Elon Musk, head of SpaceX, wants to put about 40,000 satellites in low orbit to provide internet service to every square inch of planet Earth.
This will help make it possible to track all buying and selling, for everyone on earth to see the bodies of the Two Witnesses lying in the street in Jerusalem, and for every eye to see the return of Jesus.
In the Book of Revelation, we read that rebuilt Babylon will be destroyed by fire in one hour, and all the shipmasters, everyone on ships, and sailors will see the smoke from far off (Rev. 18:17-19).
On June 30, 2022, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) granted SpaceX permission to provide satellite high-speed internet service to in-motion vehicles, ships, and aircraft including cruise ships, commercial jets, RV’s, semi-trucks, etc. (everything that moves in the air, on the water, and on the earth).
Eleven, concerning a possible energy shortage this fall or winter: on June 8, 2022, a stuck safety valve allowed too much pressure to build up in an 18-inch liquefied natural gas (LNG) pipeline in Houston, TX.
The pipe busted, it released some gas, started a fire, and the fire damaged the second-largest LNG export plant in the U.S. (a plant that produced 15 million tons of LNG per year).
Plant officials want to make the repairs and restart the plant, but Biden administration officials under Pete Buttigieg ordered the company to get an outside investigator to study the incident before they make the repairs. After the study, they can make the repairs, but they must get government approval of the repairs (who knows how long that will take) before they can restart the plant (a process that could lead to a partial startup in about six months and full production in about a year).
There is concern about an energy shortage in Texas, and the Biden administration seems to be deliberately slowing the restart of this badly needed facility.
Twelve, concerning the Battle of Gog and Magog (the invasion of Israel by Russia and her allies): there has been growing tension between Russia and Israel for several months because Israel has opposed Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
Putin is now criticizing Israel for bombing Iranian sites, weapons, and troops in Syria; Putin now says he does not recognize Israel’s annexation of the Golan Heights, he does not recognize Jerusalem as the undivided capital of Israel, etc.
For several years, the Jewish Agency in Russia has facilitated the immigration of Jews from Russia to Israel. On July 5, 2022, it was reported that Russia has ordered the Jewish Agency to cease its activity in Russia.
God is drawing the Jews back to the Promised Land, and Putin is saying he will no longer let them go (sounds a little like the Ten Plagues on Egypt).
The Israeli government is preparing a response.
Finally, are you Rapture Ready?
If you want to be rapture ready and go to heaven, you must be born again (John 3:3). God loves you, and if you have not done so, sincerely admit that you are a sinner; believe that Jesus is the virgin-born, sinless Son of God who died for the sins of the world, was buried, and raised from the dead; ask Him to forgive your sins, cleanse you, come into your heart and be your Saviour; then tell someone that you have done this.
