Wow, what a blinding past few months and believe it or not, I’m still here. So many things have happened and I wanted to put in my two cents worth. Now I know that I am not a financial guy as some folks are, but is this feeling I have shared by any of you? I mean the feeling that something big is about to happen in the world. Is it just me or do any other folks feel that the financial situation of families, municipalities, states and nations is close to a collapse? Well, I don’t want to start of on a negative note here but how many people do you know who are debt free? How many states in the US can you name that are debt free? What about countries?
The word of God, the Bible, actually speaks of a time coming upon the world in which a new economic system of worldwide proportions will usher in a time of trouble for everyone. It will actually be a system that will control the movements of every person on the planet!! Sound crazy? Well, it’s true. Let me share it with you.
Revelation 13:16-18 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. (666)
When we look at the nations which are on the verge of bankruptcy and the bondage to spending that we have developed it can be easy to see why this scripture could be fulfilled in our lifetime. Maybe in the very near future. We read reports how China is advocating for a world currency called the “bankor” which in effect will bring all nations together on the same economic level. Whether this will happen or not does not negate the fact that the word of God will come to pass.
My provoking thought is this. What are we doing about it personally? I can hear the answer now as it comes loudly over the net, “It’s out of our hands”, or “We can’t do anything so why try?” Yet, is it really the right answer? I don’t think so.
The right answer is for us to follow God’s financial principles found in his word. Much is said in scripture about money, in fact it has been said that Jesus said more about money than he did heaven or hell. Think about that. The reason each of us should be doing something right now to prepare for the coming financial disaster is that our attitude is reflected in how we handle our money. You see, the money we have been given is not ours, really. It all belongs to God and when we are gone, it will be gone as well. So what we do with the things he has given us now speak volumes about our attitude toward him and his leadership in our lives.
I encourage you to look at the study I have prepared entitled “Financial Freedom” to see what the Word of God says about this important subject. In it you will find principles that I believe will guide us through the difficult days ahead. Spread the word around and start today, it’s the only real time we have.
