Though we avoided calamity on Tuesday, we are still on course for a rendezvous with the Bible. A large part of the Bible talks about the time we live in now, but we are so intent on twisting what it says that we can’t see what is coming.
Unfortunately, what comes will turn your hair white, if it isn’t already. Christians corrupt themselves. Nations teeter on collapse. The economy crumbles. The Western World has become corrupt and insanely unjust.
Worse, collapse has arrived, and few of us are ready for it.

This Train Will Crash
We dodged a bullet on Tuesday. Greece did not have the money to pay the interest on its loan from the IMF, so they pulled a last-minute accounting maneuver. They used their emergency reserves, held by the IMF to pay what they owed. Otherwise, Greece would have been unable to pay government workers or retirees.
We didn’t see this rabbit hiding in the hat, so we were surprised when they pulled it out. The problem is that the Greeks are signalling that they are fresh out of ‘rabbits’. And, they have their heaviest payments to make, over the next few weeks.
Here is a quick summary:
YouTube shortlink: https://youtu.be/A8-KNVgX7DY
Those of you who don’t want to watch the video, here’s the main part of the transcript:
For Greece to make the payment it owed to the IMF this last Tuesday, it borrowed most of the funds from their IMF SDR reserves. They have one month to replenish the funds. Without using these funds the payment would not have been possible without forgoing salaries and pensions for government workers. Greece’s cash reserves now stand at approximately 90 million euros. ZeroHedge states for Germany this may be the final straw. For now the can is kicked, the new date to look for is June 5th and 12th and then by June 19th a total of 2.7 Billion Euros is supposed to be paid back to the IMF and 3.6 billion Euros of Treasury bills.
…they have €90 million in the bank….
…they need to pay over €6 BILLION…
…over the next couple months!
I don’t know about you, but I see a serious math problem. They have three weeks before the next payment is due, and I have seen no one offer a clue as to how they will make that payment. Of course, we didn’t have a clue earlier this week, but like I said, there really is a limit to the number of rabbits that can be pulled out of hats.
What Will Happen When Greece Defaults
I truly believe that it is time to move on to the next question:
What will happen when Greece defaults?
A lot of European countries and banks seem to indicate that they are ready for such a default, but I am not so sanguine. The global banking system has suffered quite a few shocks already. It is doubtful that they will be able to sustain too many more.
Here are a few more views on what is happening in Greece:

But, let’s go crazy and assume that we have Greece covered. You really would have to be insane to do that, but – for the sake of argument – let’s be a little crazy.
Trouble, And More Trouble
Even if Greece does NOT collapse, we will STILL be in more trouble than we’ve have ever experienced, in more than a hundred years – and yes, that means worse than the Great Depression.
Last week, we had a melt-down in the credit markets, and it almost destroyed our financial system – right then, and there. No one really caught it, except ZeroHedge – and Bill Holter. Here is what Bill had to say:
I Bet You Didn’t Even Notice It?
THAT is an excellent piece, and he lays out how really serious our situation is. And, a HUGE part of the seriousness is the fact that we will not see the financial collapse until AFTER it has happened.
This is a demonstration that you may have no warning whatsoever, when everything falls apart. In fact, the only sign – initially – will be the fact that the banks are closed, your credit card doesn’t work and the ATMs are shut off.
When that happens, it will be too late to do ANYTHING. Please prepare now, while the system still stands. You will not know when it falls, until it is too late.
Signs Of Doom
However, this doesn’t mean that we have NO signs of impending doom. We’ve been talking about Greece ad nauseam, and we have all kinds of interesting threats in our headlines. But, there are other signs that our economy and financial systems are collapsing right now.
For instance, there’s lumber:
The ‘Lumbering’ US Economy
I’ve looked at a number of economic indicators and they have all been flashing red. But, this is the first time that I’ve seen LUMBER as an indicator. Of course when you think about it, it makes sense. In this case, the sense is horrifying.
I don’t want to go too far into all the dry and boring economic stuff. Just because I find it to be fascinating, doesn’t mean that I should afflict you with it. Having said that, there are some interesting pieces that I picked up recently, that you should pay some attention to:
New Recession Closer to Depression-John Williams

I know that all of that is a lot to digest. In fact, it’s probably ‘dry as dust’. Unfortunately, your future hangs upon these dry-as-dust issues. The good thing is that your options are pretty limited.
That’s a good thing?
And, I say that it is a ‘good thing’ because you don’t really need to spend a lot of time thinking about it. You just need to do it.
What am I talking about?
Gold And Silver
Gold and silver.
I’m sure that there are other options out there, and I’ve heard of quite a few. But, they are out of reach for the likes of you and me. My wife and I do not have enough of a savings to buy agricultural land in Chile, sailboats for quick getaways or a bugout location in Montana.
Plus, I’m busy doing stuff that I believe God wants me to do, and I don’t want to be distracted by having to manage all that. That’s why gold and silver works for me. I’ve bought what I can, with what I have, and have turned my attention to God’s direction.
Of course, there are some serious financial reasons why you might want to follow my example. However, it’s up to you. I am NOT giving you financial advice. Anyway, let me offer you a view of gold and silver that you might not have seen before.
Steve St. Angelo is one of my favorite analysts and he provides a fascinating bottom up view of the markets. Here he is, being interviewed:
YouTube shortlink: https://youtu.be/rIMEof-DW6o
As Peak Oil begins to bite harder, the production of other commodities will also peak – due to the increased cost of energy needed to produce those commodities. This will mean an increase in the value of precious metals. But, it will also mean a collapse of our financial world.
Here’s a quote from the page, for the above video:
While the MSM believes business as usual will continue for quite some time, the U.S. and world are about to face a collapse of epic proportions. Also, many of the precious metal analysts have this notion that if we just allow the Big Banks to fail and get back on “Sound Money”, then after a recovery, we will experience profound economic growth.
Unfortunately, sound money cannot prevent the coming financial and economic devastation due to the falling EROI – Energy Returned On Invested. I sat down with the folks at SilverShield to discuss why the U.S. Government, just like the Roman Empire will fail due to the falling EROI.
That being said, owning physical gold and silver will be some of the best assets to own in the future to protect your wealth.
When our financial system collapses, the true availability of energy will become obvious. Once that happens, our economies will reset, and we will finally reset the value gold and silver much, much higher – according to the energy and cost required to get it from the ground.
I think that Steve St. Agelo’s point is fascinating. Each gold and silver coin represents the energy that it took to tear it out of the ground, refine it and then transport it to you. That is a fundamental concept that we have lost sight of in our oh-so-modern world. As energy returns to its normal scarcity and expensiveness, the gold and silver in your pocket will become very, very valuable.
Please also understand that paper and electronic assets will fall to a value of zero when everything falls apart. Gold and Silver CANNOT fall to zero. It will always have value until the day that Jesus returns.
Here is a recent article/video on the wisdom of owning Gold and Silver:
Ray Dalio: “If You Don’t Own Gold, You Know Neither History Nor Economics”
Bankster House Of Cards
When I first ran across this ‘Dark Journalist’ fellow, I was a bit taken aback.
What an awfully melodramatic name. But then again, we live in awfully melodramatic times, and ‘Dark Journalist’ does an excellent job interviewing Ms. Prins. His name is Daniel Liszt, and you can listen to him interview, Nomi Prins, here:
YouTube shortlink: https://youtu.be/bNFbeZb4Qzc
Now, you are probably hoping that I will stop talking about all this financial stuff, because there seem to be far too many other dire topics to talk about – like martial law and Jade Helm 15. However, Jade Helm and the coming martial law will arrive BECAUSE of all this financial stuff.
Please. Let me repeat that again:
Jade Helm and the coming martial law will arrive precisely due to financial collapse
Our financial system has been taken over and crushed by greed and corruption – i.e., the Love of Money. Paul said to Timothy:
For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
And, well… LOTS of evil is headed our way. In fact, just the headline of the following piece should unsettle you:
Analyst: “Millions Upon Millions of People Are Going to Die on a World-Wide Scale When the Debt Bubble Bursts”
Actually, I think that the headline is understating things a little. The death toll will probably be in the HUNDREDS of millions. And THAT is if we do not include Ezekiel’s Fire, which will actually be a result of the financial collapse that we are about to experience.
When Ezekiel’s Fire happens, the death toll will accelerate into the BILLIONS. You can read more about THAT, here:
And, I really, Really, REALLY wish that I was just being hysterical. But, there really is no other way to look at this event that will come fairly shortly after the financial collapse that lies at our door.
The System Is Collapsing
Now, the SHTFPlan.com article that I referenced above, contains this interview:
YouTube shortlink: https://youtu.be/LDMi3ROZYeU
Unfortunately, X22Report laces some of his reports with antisemitic propaganda. Another person who does that is Sean from SGT Report. Such hatred of Israel and the Jews is a truly evil thing and extremely painful to hear.
Sean Of SGT Report
I referenced Sean of SGT Report, so let me explain.
Sean does excellent work. And, some of his research has appeared in my articles. When I first heard him claim that he was a Christian, I began to pay more attention to his efforts. I believe in supporting brothers and sisters in Christ, especially since there are far too few of us in alternative media.
However, if you claim to be a brother in Christ, you also call us to point out the sins in your life. Our job – as brothers and sisters – is to watch out for each other and build each other up. If you are engaged in sin, I am required to point this out to you, if you are a brother in Christ. We all are engaged in a life-and-death struggle against sin, and we need all the help that we can get.
Furthermore, antisemitism and hatred of Israel are a sin. Any kind of racism is a sin, but hatred of the Jews and Israel is especially serious – but, not because the Jews are somehow better than the rest of us. God is at work in Israel, and to resist that work, is to resist God. This is a very, very dangerous thing.
Also, the vast majority of the vile criticism of Israel is completely unjust. Condemning the innocent is not the way of Christ. It is the way of Satan.
Unfortunately, Sean has compounded his error by promoting articles on his site that level Satanic attacks upon the Bible and God. I’m afraid that this was the final straw for me. No true Christian would ever do such a thing.
I have warned Sean repeatedly about all the above, but he has refused to listen. If any of you have the ability to reason with Sean and turn him from these sins, I ask you to do so. My hope is that he is merely caught in sin, and has not truly rejected Christ. But, until he repents, I cannot in good conscience consider him to be a brother in Christ, and it truly grieves me deeply to believe this.
Anarchy, Chaos And Death
The above is not all there is to read about the recent news on Jade Helm 15 and martial law, but I believe the above articles to be the most relevant. Furthermore, there is a connection between all that and the bad financial news that I have been throwing at you:
Nine meals from anarchy: What the coming food collapse means for civilization
David Gutierrez, might not have been thinking about global finance when he wrote the article, but I was certainly thinking about it, when I read it. And yes, finance has a dramatic effect upon food.
Farmers don’t give away food. They need to be paid.
Truckers don’t transport food for free. They need to be paid.
Bakeries, butchers and canners don’t give away cans of food. They need to be paid.
Supermarkets and food warehouses do not give away food. They need to be paid.
And, all of that is completely reasonable, because if you do not get paid, you do not survive.
And, if the financial system has collapsed…
…how are ANY of those people going to be paid?
Well, they aren’t. And, THAT means starvation, which will lead to anarchy, chaos and death. And, when there is enough anarchy, chaos and death, the military will be called in to declare martial law and shoot anyone who is involved in anarchy, chaos and death. Those who do not die of violence or gunshot wounds, will die of starvation.
Yes, that is the future, when the system collapses. Not if. When.
Is there some chance that they will work a miracle, and avert a complete collapse of society?
The Government CANNOT And WILL NOT Help You
Um… right. We’re talking about the US government here. At the best of times, they couldn’t find their… their… whatever …with two hands and a flashlight. These are the same kinds of people that let men drown in three feet of water because their procedures required ‘rescuers’ to don scuba gear first.
Charity shop worker drowned in lake just 3ft deep after firemen refused to wade in due to health and safety rules
Cops, firefighters stand by and watch as California man drowns
Yes, I know that the first one is from the UK, but the second one IS NOT. Furthermore, I’ve worked for government. Whether state or federal, government really IS this bad. And, THAT is assuming that government will have ‘good intentions’.
Does anyone want to trust the intentions of the US government?
Right. Me neither.
Government Injustice And Cruelty
In fact, while we’re on the subject of ‘good intentions’, let me give you a load of something less good that will make you scream. It certainly made ME scream:

The Video That Set Me Off
The following video sent me into a rage. In fact, I wanted a baseball bat and permission from God to bash heads. Unfortunately, God doesn’t hand out such permissions – at least for the reasons that I wanted such permission. I must keep telling myself that vengeance is in the hand of God (Romans 12:19).
Here’s the video:
YouTube shortlink: https://youtu.be/2aI2nNr9Tik
And, when they interviewed the police officer that stole the money, he showed no remorse, even when confronted with his lies on the ‘police report’.
Everyone, if you haven’t gotten the point by now, I’m not sure that you ever will. But, let me spell it out for you. To quote Sarah Palin:
Put a fork in us, we’re finished.
We are an evil, awful country of wolves. Our government is lawless and corrupt. It promotes sin and degradation. It persecutes the just. It steals from the poor and defenseless and gives to the rich and powerful. It has no conscience. It lies at every turn, and does not hesitate to murder the innocent. It has allied herself with the persecutors of Christians and Jews. It has murdered the unborn. It has protected the most vile men and women on the planet and prosecuted those who would live moral lives.
Put a fork in us, indeed!
We MUST Be Destroyed
Oh, but maybe you think that we aren’t quite finished – that the judgment of God isn’t about to descend upon us. Please let offer you some evidence that God MUST destroy us, or apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah. This video is truly sickening:
YouTube shortlink: https://youtu.be/rTBhc8Hy6Pk
Here is the show page on the FOX website:
LUCIFER – Coming to FOX, 2016
Truly and utterly amazing.
Then, there are these awful stories that fill me with absolute loathing:
Tinder addict who has slept with 100 women he met on dating apps reveals he keeps a ‘vault’ of pictures of his conquests… but swears he’s trying to find ‘The One’
Naked Final Exam at UC San Diego Sparks Mom’s Outrage
Outrage as students forced to strip naked with male professor and perform ‘erotic gesture’ by candlelight before being allowed to graduate from University of California, San Diego
Apostate Pastor Rick Warren And Elton John Hold Hands In Congress, Joke About Kissing Each Other
The Messed Up Church
Study finds fewer Christians, more unaffiliated in US
I’m really dumbfounded. What a sick, perverted country, full of sick perverted people. What sick and awful Christians who populate sick and awful churches. Our sins cry out for God’s judgment. If God didn’t destroy us, He would need to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.
How DARE we!
Electronic Currency, Slavery And The Antichrist
Of course, God WILL judge us. But first, He will turn us over to Satan. And, we have evidence of that, here:
Australian Banks Win Behind the Curtain?
Gordon Brown Adopts Marx’s Theory – Eliminate Cash Will Eliminate the Boom Bust Cycle
The Trouble with Cash
The Crisis in Democracy – Debt & Electronic Money
The Push to Ban Paper Currency: Economic Freedom at Stake as Banks attempt to Ban Cash
Bankers Propose Banning Cash – “Make Cash Illegal” to Usher in Cashless Society & Digital Currency
How to end boom and bust: make cash illegal
When you think the above articles through, you realize that this electronic currency will be the basis for the Antichrist system. But, first it will be used as an instrument of complete repression. The government will wring from us every penny and sell us into slavery.
And, America will deserve it, because she has corrupted herself.
Can she obtain forgiveness from God, and avert her just judgment?
Yes. But, until I see evidence that she has truly repented of her terrible sins, I will not hold out hope that the US will be a safe place for ANY of God’s people. And, THAT means YOU. (I hope.)
So please, I beg you. Flee the judgment that is coming for America. She is going to be destroyed, but you do not need to be destroyed with her. You MUST relocate to a safe place, if you can. You MUST prepare.
For those of you who can relocate, I found a few articles that are interesting:
Which Countries Are The Most Paranoid?
Levels of Trust across Countries
There’s a MAJOR benefit in Chile that doesn’t exist anywhere else in the world.
The first two deal with interpersonal trust, and they present statistics on a number of countries. The more a country’s citizens are willing to trust each other, the safer and less violent they will be. This certainly isn’t the biggest consideration, but I believe that it is one to pay attention to.
I can personally attest to the fact that my current country of residence, Taiwan, is a country with a lot of interpersonal trust. The first time that I saw a woman put down her purse in public and walk away… well …it told me that I was in the right place.
The third article deals with obtaining residency. If you have never had to fight for the right to stay in a country, you are in for a rude awakening. I’ve spent a very, very long time in such a position, and it’s not fun. Apparently, Chile has a far more open policy towards foreigners.
Does this mean that you should go live in Chile or Taiwan?
No. It does not. This is where your walk with God comes in. If you have truly surrendered your life to the Lord, then I believe that you should follow God’s lead and go where He tells you to go. He may even tell you that where you are, is where you should be.
But, please do NOT convince yourself that you have heard from the Lord, when all that you have really done is hear from your own carnal desires. I’ve seen a lot of that, and it never ends well.
Well, I see that I’ve hit you with a TON of material. I hope that it has been of benefit to you.
I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this
