The month of January was a record at Focus on Freedom with the highest number of hits since starting this ministry. All of you made this possible and a number of positive comments came in as well. Most of which were from outside the US. I pray that this little spot on the web will be a help to someone in need. If you know someone who is hurting or just need answers to some of life’s questions, maybe they will find it here. Our giveaway for the month of January is over and to my surprise no one won the Bible software Sword Search. In fact no one seemed interested at all. Oh, well I tried. Maybe everyone is already up to speed in this area of computer technology.
The month of February here in America has seen snow storms the likes of which we haven’t seen in a number of years. As Washington, D.C. is digging out of two feet of snow the Federal Government is trying to bury us all in a snowstorm of debt of epic proportions. Now they talk of trillions like you and I discuss our grocery bill. The stock markets have plunged again and at this writing is below 10,000 for the first time in eight months. I don’t know about you but this whole financial thing has got me nervous. China is said to have “cooked the books” about their financial prosperity and Europe is reeling with a debt load that may necessitate a change in their basic currency. America is about to slip out of the AAA rating it has enjoyed for so long and one has to ask where is it all going to end? The answer of course is found in the Word of God, the Bible. Have you read it lately? In the prophecies of scripture we see a global financial system arise that is led by a man called the anti-Christ. Let me share what he will be allowed to do in the area of global financial areas.
“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.” Revelation 13:16-18
Before this happens it s obvious that the world must go through a “leveling out” process where all currencies will be placed on an equal plane and then a one world currency will be installed. When this happens the world will be in the total control of the “man of sin”. No one will be exempt from his tyranny and complete control. Until that time each of us have choices to make about the immediate future. Those choices will include the handling of personal finances. I have written two lessons entitled “Borrowing Money” and “Financial Freedom” which are not at all exhaustive on this subject but give a good starting point. You see, it’s not where we are that’s so important but where we are headed that makes the difference. Freedom from financial debt is the will of God and a good way to live as well and when the global financial crisis comes upon the world those who have planned ahead will do the best. Are you planning for the future? If you are then consider one more thing with me.
Where are you headed spiritually? In the same way we prosper financially we can prosper spiritually if we plan ahead and take care of the little things first. I would love to have you look at the lessons on salvation that I have written. They are “Repentance”, “Water Baptism” and “What Does it Mean to Receive the Holy Ghost?”. In these lessons you will see the basic plan of salvation that God has for us from the debt load of sin that we all carry.
The storms are coming! The least of which is two feet of snow. Be prepared, I know you won’t regret it.
Here is the weekly inspirational scripture.
“One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in his temple. For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock. And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.” Psalms 27:4-6
