Ugliness in the Markets

Saturday, August 22nd, 2015

I warned a friend about being fully invested in the market on Wednesday and he lost a notable amount by Friday PM.  Margin calls have surely been issued and will require those who operate in that arena to come up with cash.  An obvious source of cash are other securities in their portfolio.  If sold, this could lead to a further drop come Monday.  Even Grandma’s jewels are a source of cash when the “margin man” comes calling.

It would not be surprising to see some temporary recovery during this week in hope of calming the market down.  However fear is a greater force than greed and we will see how much it grips the market in the upcoming days ahead.

Since gold and silver have no attached liabilities, they will become the safe haven for many who are finally ready to cash out of the market.  The gold & silver stocks may also temporarily drop as margin accounts liquidate anything of value.  Afterward, they may finally have their day in the sun.  Only FATHER knows for sure.

Top Forecaster Prediction

Friday, August 7th, 2015

Gerald Celente:  “I’m now predicting that we are going to see a global stock market crash before the end of the year.  It’s not only going to be the Dow, it’s going to be the DAX, the FTSE, the CAC, Shanghai, and the Nikkei.  There’s going to be panic on the streets from Wall Street to Shanghai and from the UK down to Brazil.  You are going to see one market after another begin to collapse.”

The Mainstream Warnings

I have been warning readers of the possibility of a notable, negative economic event for some time.  In the last 12 months, the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) and International Monetary Fund (IMF) have issued a number of warnings so nobody can claim ignorance that the system was moving toward higher risk.

Will it occur this fall?  Only FATHER knows when and how we all will be affected.  This is why I continue to focus on your “internal” preparation.  There are plenty of people out there reporting on the “external”.  Your connection with FATHER will guide you through any challenges that arise.  Stay connected!

Safest Money

Tuesday, August 4th, 2015

The safest form of money in the current system is:

1. Gold

2. Silver

3. Currency

4. Bank Deposit

…  Electronic Money

The government cannot totally control 1, 2, or 3.  The rest can be controlled and manipulated at will.  This places your assets, pension, and other retirement accounts at risk of theft in some manner.  The above list shows you why the central planners want to do away with cash.  The respect for individual life, liberty, and the protected pursuit of happiness is gone.  FATHER will deal with those who have abused their power.

The following article is just another example of how risky electronic banking and monetary equivalents are:

See:  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/currency/11777486/Executive-arrested-over-disappearance-of-390-million-in-Bitcoins.html

I suggest storing up riches in Heaven where thieves have no access.

How to take over a society

Monday, August 3rd, 2015

1. Create money out of thin air.

2. Loan the money to people who ultimately can’t pay it back.

3. Demand repayment.

4. When repayment does not occur, seize the collateral.

You now own something physical resulting from creating money out of thin air.  That is the epitome of blindness of the masses.  The globe has over $200 Trillion in debt now.  The question is “Who is holding the note?”.  The central banks who created the money out of thin air.  Get the picture?  If not, ask someone from Greece to explain it to you.

Reality of the Banking Situation

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015

Nomi Prins presented the following slide at a global banking conference just 49 days ago:

NomiPins

Nothing has been fixed since the 2008 banking crisis, it is only worse.  Nobody at the meeting disputed her statistics.  One 30 year Federal Reserve veteran mentioned that they had no solution and were scared of what might happen if the liquidity in the system (cash) dries up as it did in 2008.

She recommends having some cash outside your bank.  The Greek people know first hand how quickly bank policy can change and restrict your from access to your money.  The job of the watchman is to alert the people of impending danger.  Mathematically speaking, there is no solution.  Only FATHER has THE long-term solution but the issue is how to best prepare for the transition.  It’s better to be a little early than 1 minute too late.  The risk generally goes up Friday at 5 PM and any announcement would happen Sunday evening notifying the population of a Bank Holiday.  The exception is if some major event such as 9/11 occurred during the week.  The flow of money would immediately be stopped.

Don’t you think those “in the know” will be given preferential treatment to remove funds before the general population?

Do you think we would be told before a bank holiday occurs?

Greed is self-serving.  Love serves others.  Which characteristic is currently prevailing among central bankers?

Update from Greece

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015

“Banks are absolutely trustworthy,” Katseli told Mega TV “as guaranteed by the ECB and the Bank Association, but they would have been even more powerful if 40 billion euros had not been withdrawn in the last months.”

After three weeks of being closed (called a bank holiday) where people could not get to their hard-earned money or the safe deposit boxes, banks are now deemed trustworthy?  With plans to limit withdrawals to about $67 per day, someone would dare say “trust me”?  Did the mainstream media report these details?

http://www.keeptalkinggreece.com/2015/07/20/banks-union-appeals-to-greeks-to-return-their-money-to-banks/

Who’s kidding who?

What a mess!  Isn’t Greece called the birthplace of western civilization?  Think about it.

Continued Concern about Markets

Tuesday, July 14th, 2015

I would be remiss if I didn’t warn you about the fragility of the markets at this time.  Central planners have continued to manipulate the markets in an attempt to keep the current economic system in place.  How many plates can be kept spinning on their sticks until all come tumbling down?

Image result for balancing plates on sticks

Some of you may not have realized that China’s stock market crashed.  Large stockholders have been told they cannot sell their stock for at least six months.  It has been reported that some stock sales are being reversed.  China’s reported growth will not meet projections but instead begin to contract.  That does not bode well for resource-based economies in South America and Australia.

When will the bond market force interest rates up?  When it does occur, the stock market will head south and the Federal deficits will dramatically increase.  Mathematically, there is no solution except a global reset.  That would prove to be painful for much of the population.  If there is ever a time where Divine Intervention is an absolute necessity, it is now.  The smartest guys around the globe can’t fix this problem.  Greed got us here and soon fear will spread across the globe.  Be prepared.  Listen intently for FATHER’S instructions.  We will soon be tested on the 2nd Commandment: Love thy neighbor as thyself.

Quote of the Day

Friday, July 3rd, 2015

Richard Russell:

"One of man’s dreams has been to get something for nothing. The alchemists were dreamers who sought to turn base metals into gold. They never succeeded. Gold is only accumulated by man’s labor. The dream of the gambler in Las Vegas is to put a coin in the slot machine and with a mere pull of the handle, hit the jackpot.

In the same way, the operators at the central banks create money out of thin air. Through acts of manipulation, they create new money. They force people to accept their new currency by fiat. Fiat currency gains its legitimacy through government threat and the muzzle of a gun. Ironically, despite government threat, no fiat currency has ever survived. In the end, reality trumps government threats.”

The Economics of Love

Tuesday, June 9th, 2015

In its most fundamental form, exchange promotes life.  When we breathe, we receive oxygen and expel carbon dioxide, a gas critical for plant life.  On the other hand, plants expel oxygen to maintain life and growth.  This exchange works rather well and there is an abundance of both gases to facilitate life for all three kingdoms: plant, animal, and mankind.  (Science only categorizes life into two fundamental kingdoms which I disagree with)

In FATHER’S Kingdom, Love is the motivation for exchange and it is counterintuitive to man’s logic.  Love gives and FATHER blesses with greater abundance.  This is the foundation of the Heavenly Economic Model.  Mankind’s economic model tends to operate on addition and subtraction whereas FATHER’S Model operates on multiplication and division.

Jesus represents the Divine Intent of Love and conveys the abundance of the Kingdom in the following story found in Luke chapter 5:

1 So it was, as the multitude pressed about Him to hear the word of God, that He stood by the Lake of Gennesaret,

2 and saw two boats standing by the lake; but the fishermen had gone from them and were washing their nets.

3 Then He got into one of the boats, which was Simon’s, and asked him to put out a little from the land. And He sat down and taught the multitudes from the boat.

Jesus had not yet called Peter to the ministry and Peter, a fisherman, was busy cleaning his nets.  Jesus needed to utilize Peter and his boat so that he could teach the multitudes and all could hear.  Peter accommodated Jesus and rowed out from the shore and listened to the Gospel while managing the boat.  In response to Peter’s willingness to provide Jesus with the resource He needed, Jesus was now ready to bless Peter:

4 When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.”

Love spoke a blessing over Peter but he challenged the blessing by allowing his mind and intellect to take control of the situation:

5 But Simon answered and said to Him, “Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at Your word I will let down the net.”

Peter’s orientation was based on mankind’s economic model of scarcity and challenged Love’s Intent to bless him.  He compromised the Word and let down a net rather than multiple nets as Jesus requested.  What was the result?

6 And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking.

7 So they signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink.

FATHER’S economic model of abundance superseded man’s law of scarcity and overtook the fishermen’s capacity to receive.  Yes, I understand that the fish represented Spiritual Truths of becoming fishers of men and other facets.  Yet we must not overlook the fact that Jesus was expressing a Kingdom reality in the area of economics and finance.  The mind wants to negate that aspect because it seems to be out of reach for us to expect a multiplication of resources.  How did Peter respond?

8 When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, “Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord!”

9 For he and all who were with him were astonished at the catch of fish which they had taken;

When Love arrives on the scene, blessing occurs.  Mankind toils in a system of scarcity and then Jesus shows up to change the paradigm.  He defied man’s knowledge, understanding, and skill.  The Wisdom from Above understands how to take command over the infinite resources available to those who walk in the maturity of Love.  Love is able to fund the spreading of the Gospel and meet men’s needs.  There is no need to coerce funds from people.  As you pursue Love, FATHER will open up the windows of Heaven and make the necessary resources available.

Men tend to steer away from this aspect of the Gospel in fear of failure.  If I don’t expect the resources to come, then I won’t be disappointed when they don’t show up.  That is the ego’s way of keeping you from your calling.  You will never harvest a crop if you don’t plant seed.  Every farmer know this simple truth yet the moment we speak of giving, alarms sound from the ego.  Love gives, lust takes.  If you give out of Love, the recipient’s intent won’t prevent you from your blessing.  FATHER looks at the intent of the heart and is not limited by the recipient’s response or agenda.  The recipient will be dealt with according to his motivation thus you don’t have to attempt to judge the outcome.  FATHER is well equipped to handle the reconciliation aspect of giving and receiving.

Jesus understood that men need to be sustained by the necessities of physical life.  He had no problem in blessing the four disciples’ families with an exceptional catch of fish.  What do you think happened to all those fish that filled their boats?  They surely took them to market and received sufficient income.  Do you think those fish were of the highest quality?  No doubt!

We must start looking at challenges as opportunities, not through the eyes afraid of failure.  As we are led by HIS SPIRIT, FATHER will tell us which side of the boat to cast our nets.  HE will tell us to take action even though the world’s logic would say that it will be fruitless.  We must trust FATHER as we move toward challenging times ahead.  If HE says to prepare, then prepare.  If HE says to give, then give.  When you take action according to HIS Word, your boat will be full.  Some men get hard of hearing when it comes to funding the Gospel.  Peter nearly missed it when Jesus told him to set aside his own logic and simply do what Jesus said to do.

If you walk according to the world’s economic model, you will continue to toil and suffer lack.  We must seek to understand the Economics of Love if we are to be blessed and prospered.   People who become desperate will look for someone who isn’t and want to know why.  Our focus must be on Love and as good stewards we will be in command of the resources we need to minister life to all those we come in contact with.  This is just one aspect of the “greater things” Jesus spoke about.  It is time that we no longer compromise in this area of Love.  When we have Love as our intent, then we will appropriately expect all promises to come to pass such as:

Luke 6:38  “Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.”
