HIT by a TON of BRICS?

 

Proverbs 18:11

King James Version

11 The rich man's wealth is his strong city, 

and as an high wall in his own conceit.


Nope, it's not a mis-spelling.

There really is a BRICS.

Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa.

Jim Rickards calls it a "geopolitical shockwave".

What are these giant countries up to?

Is the rest of the world really going to be hit by a ton of BRICS?

Well, the group intends to challenge U.S. dollar superiority.

Rickards' "Strategic Intelligence" pdf tells us more about BRICS.


Think about it.

If the U.S. dollar is failing, a challenger comes up.

Or if it wants it to fail, a challenger has made plans to unseat it.

With the way America's foreign policy is, we wonder if it will be hit by a ton of BRICS.

With over $31 trillion in debt, who's to say it won't happen?

And then again, the U.S. may be acting deaf, dumb, and mute.

They may also be acting insensitive to Israel's plight, and ways.

And taking sides, here, there, and everywhere.

Or are they, really?

Perhaps, there's more than meets the eye?

I won't even begin to figure out man's convoluted mind.

And with too many cooks in the kitchen, you can imagine the chaos.

But GOD knows it, from A to Z.

Genesis 6:5-6

King James Version

5 And God saw that the wickedness of man 

was great in the earth,

and that every imagination 

of the thoughts of his heart 

was only evil continually.

6 And it repented the Lord 

that he had made man on the earth,

and it grieved him at his heart.


In this purposely-designed, complex world of finance, geopolitics, and global power wrangling, one really never knows.

In the meantime, China's watching.

Russia's watching.

Israel's fighting.

Iran has her proxies.

Other countries are playing it safe.

The rest of the world is trying to survive.

Many can't free themselves from their slave masters.

Recession and strife are everywhere.

Borders are laid open.

Most are clueless.

Matthew 24:37-39

King James Version

37 But as the days of Noah were, 

so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

38 For as in the days that were before the flood 

they were eating and drinking, 

marrying and giving in marriage, 

until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

39 And knew not until the flood came, 

and took them all away; 

so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.


2 Corinthians 4:3-4

King James Version

3 But if our gospel be hid, 

it is hid to them that are lost:

4 In whom the god of this world 

hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, 

lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, 

who is the image of God, should shine unto them.


Should you be worried?

What are our chances of survival?

Who's the real player?

A born again always knows.

JESUS identified the player, BEHIND the players.

The prophets and apostles have also identified him.


As born again, this much I can say:

GOD is allowing all to happen.

It's all been prophesied anyway.

A believer always turns to Scripture.

GOD gives us the leaders we want.

Of course, if GOD really wanted to, He can stop all our nonsense.

Right this moment.

But no, GOD has a master plan for salvation.

Everything in the fullness of time.

Everything in fulfillment of Scripture.

Everything according to His plan.


He already sent His LAST emissary.

The One who has ALL the answers.

The only One who can SAVE us.

That's how much GOD loves us, just so you know.

2 Peter 3:9

King James Version

9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, 

as some men count slackness; 

but is longsuffering to us-ward, 

not willing that any should perish, 

but that all should come to repentance.


And that also signifies how critical the times are.

If GOD sends His best, why are we still ignoring Him?

We have no idea the travails for the foolish, and rebellious.

But GOD will not be denied.

Isaiah 14:24

King James Version

24 The Lord of hosts hath sworn, saying, 

Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; 

and as I have purposed, so shall it stand:


Everything will come, in the "fullness" of His time.

It was never through man's puny understanding.

And our garbled and corrupted thoughts, and plans.

But ALWAYS through GOD's plan, and timetable.


As workman, and student of SPIRIT, I find the following THREE sets of verses to be the most powerful, and telling prophecies, in these end times we're in.

All in accordance with events, still to occur.

And from the looks of it, from the outright, unrepentant wickedness, and rebellion of the world, it could very well be imminent.

The events, in sequence:

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

King James Version

16 For the Lord himself 

shall descend from heaven 

with a shout, 

with the voice of the archangel, 

and with the trump of God: 

and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

17 Then we which are alive and remain 

shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, 

to meet the Lord in the air: 

and so shall we ever be with the Lord.


Romans 11:25

King James Version

25 For I would not, brethren, 

that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, 

lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; 

that blindness in part is happened to Israel, 

until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.


2 Thessalonians 2:7-8

King James Version

7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: 

only he who now letteth will let, 

until he be taken out of the way.

8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, 

whom the Lord shall consume 

with the spirit of his mouth, 

and shall destroy with the brightness 

of his coming:


Still, only GOD decides when.

JESUS already told us what.

Only question is, are you ready?

Is your heart prepared, before GOD?

Are you a true born again?


As you can very well see, I'm not focused on the world.

Whether it be trends, schemes, threats, or supposed brilliance.

I'm focused on the LAST emissary.

He is the diplomat, to end all diplomats.

He is the messenger, to end all messengers.

He is the judge, to end all judges.

JESUS, Son of GOD.

Isaiah 9:6-7

King James Version

6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: 

and the government shall be upon his shoulder: 

and his name shall be called Wonderful, 

Counsellor, 

The mighty God, 

The everlasting Father, 

The Prince of Peace.

7 Of the increase of his government and peace 

there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, 

and upon his kingdom, 

to order it, 

and to establish it 

with judgment and with justice 

from henceforth even for ever. 

The zeal of the Lord of hosts 

will perform this.


The smartest thing to focus on right now?

NOT on being hit by a ton of BRICS.

NOT on having enough gold to tide you over.

NOT on having enough food to get you through tough times.

At any given moment, at a time of GOD's choosing, ALL could be gone, in an instant.

Why even hoard?

Could you say, by then, the one with the most toys wins?

If anything, those "toys" will impede your walk with the LORD.


Will our brains save us?

Only the MIND of CHRIST can.


Believers have FAITH in the LORD.

Further, whatever will hit unbelievers only comes from GOD.

And that's just a small sampling.

The whole Book of Revelation tells us what to expect.

How to survive these crazy times?

In the following is REAL perspective.

Literally, and figuratively.

Colossians 3:1-2

King James Version

3 If ye then be risen with Christ, 

seek those things which are above, 

where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

2 Set your affection on things above, 

not on things on the earth.


1 John 2:16

King James Version

16 For all that is in the world, 

the lust of the flesh, 

and the lust of the eyes, 

and the pride of life, 

is not of the Father, 

but is of the world.

DEATH of MONEY?

 

Proverbs 3:7-8

King James Version

7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: 

fear the Lord, and depart from evil.

8 It shall be health to thy navel, 

and marrow to thy bones.


What is the state of the world right now?

Financially, at least?

Listen to this fresh  video, and you will have an idea.

Jim Rickard's book, "The Death of Money", was written nearly 10 years ago.

And yet, it is more relevant than ever.

Especially when I read these excerpts from its Amazon link:


"While Washington is gridlocked and unable to make progress on our long-term problems, our biggest economic competitors—China, Russia, and the oilproducing nations of the Middle East—are doing everything possible to end U.S. monetary hegemony. The potential results: Financial warfare. Deflation. Hyperinflation. Market collapse. Chaos."


"The author shows how everyday citizens who save and invest have become guinea pigs in the central bankers’ laboratory."


"The world’s major financial players—national governments, big banks, multilateral institutions—will always muddle through by patching together new rules of the game."


I've always known that.

That everyday citizens are but guinea pigs to the elite.

I need not point out to you all the programs and schemes we've all been put through.

All the while, most of us are kept in the dark.


As an ordinary citizen, I've also wondered about one thing.

And it's not an affront to any financial brain.

With all the matching degrees, and expertise, why is the world still mostly poor?

Why do we keep going through the same cycle of boom, and bust?

Why does it only uphold a few rich?

Why can't governments seem to get their act together?

Why is there favoritism?

Who keeps the game going?

What would end poverty?

Who really has a solution to all the problems?


As born again, things have been made clear for me.

The SPIRIT of GOD makes things plain.

Through Scripture, the WORD of GOD.

The Bible reveals the true nature of the world.

It has its own god.

Ephesians 6:12

King James Version

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, 

but against principalities, against powers, 

against the rulers of the darkness of this world, 

against spiritual wickedness in high places.


JESUS told us about this deceiver:

John 8:44-45

King James Version

44 Ye are of your father the devil, 

and the lusts of your father ye will do. 

He was a murderer from the beginning, 

and abode not in the truth, 

because there is no truth in him. 

When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: 

for he is a liar, and the father of it.

45 And because I tell you the truth, 

ye believe me not.


Why is there no perfect monetary system?

Why is there no perfect government?

Why is there no perfect solution?


The answer is simple.

Man is not perfect.

His heart is not perfect with GOD.

These verses explain it all:

Genesis 6:5-6

King James Version

5 And God saw that the wickedness of man 

was great in the earth, and that every imagination 

of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

6 And it repented the Lord 

that he had made man on the earth, 

and it grieved him at his heart.


Romans 3:9-10

King James Version

9 What then? are we better than they? 

No, in no wise: for we have before proved 

both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin;

10 As it is written, 

There is none righteous, no, not one:


Romans 3:11

King James Version

11 There is none that understandeth, 

there is none that seeketh after God.


Romans 3:12

King James Version

12 They are all gone out of the way, 

they are together become unprofitable; 

there is none that doeth good, no, not one.


Romans 3:23

King James Version

23 For all have sinned, 

and come short of the glory of God;


Man does not deliver just weight.

Proverbs 11:1

King James Version

11 A false balance is abomination to the Lord: 

but a just weight is his delight.


Man ignores the poor.

Deuteronomy 15:11

King James Version

11 For the poor shall never cease out of the land: 

therefore I command thee, saying, 

Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy brother, 

to thy poor, and to thy needy, in thy land.


Until we learn to love, as JESUS taught us to love, we'll always be in the same boat.

A stinking, sinking boat.

CONFUSED about FINANCE?

 

1 John 2:15-17

King James Version

15 Love not the world, 

neither the things that are in the world. 

If any man love the world, 

the love of the Father is not in him.

16 For all that is in the world, 

the lust of the flesh, 

and the lust of the eyes, 

and the pride of life, 

is not of the Father, but is of the world.

17 And the world passeth away, 

and the lust thereof: 

but he that doeth the will of God 

abideth for ever.


Couldn't figure out finance?

Don't worry, no one else could, either.

If they did, there'd be no inflation.

There'd be no bankruptcy of famed institutions.

There'd be no shamed executives.

3 PILLARS of WEALTH

 

Genesis 3:6

King James Version

6 And when the woman saw 

that the tree was good for food, 

and that it was pleasant to the eyes, 

and a tree to be desired to make one wise, 

she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, 

and gave also unto her husband with her; 

and he did eat.


What are the three pillars of wealth?

The world declares it's stocks, bonds, and real estate.

Where has that taken us so far?

Greed, chaos, lust, vanity, war, and godlessness.

In contrast, the born again has a different story to tell.

For us, the three pillars of wealth are:

GOD, JESUS, and the HOLY SPIRIT.

The Triune GOD.


These verses attest to that. 

In the wisdom of believing in CHRIST.

And the insanity of worldly wealth that makes our souls perish:

Deuteronomy 8:18-20

King James Version

18 But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: 

for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, 

that he may establish his covenant 

which he sware unto thy fathers, 

as it is this day.

19 And it shall be, 

if thou do at all forget the Lord thy God, 

and walk after other gods, 

and serve them, and worship them, 

I testify against you this day 

that ye shall surely perish.

20 As the nations which the Lord destroyeth 

before your face, 

so shall ye perish; 

because ye would not be obedient 

unto the voice of the Lord your God.


Matthew 6:19-20

King James Version

19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, 

where moth and rust doth corrupt, 

and where thieves break through and steal:

20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, 

where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, 

and where thieves do not break through nor steal:


Matthew 6:24-25

King James Version

24 No man can serve two masters: 

for either he will hate the one, and love the other; 

or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. 

Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

25 Therefore I say unto you, 

Take no thought for your life, 

what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; 

nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. 

Is not the life more than meat, 

and the body than raiment?


Matthew 6:31-34

King James Version

31 Therefore take no thought, saying, 

What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? 

or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) 

for your heavenly Father knoweth 

that ye have need of all these things.

33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, 

and his righteousness; 

and all these things shall be added unto you.

34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: 

for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. 

Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.


John 15:5

King James Version

5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: 

He that abideth in me, and I in him, 

the same bringeth forth much fruit: 

for without me ye can do nothing.


1 Corinthians 10:14

King James Version

14 Wherefore, my dearly beloved, 

flee from idolatry.


Philippians 4:19-20

King James Version

19 But my God shall supply all your need 

according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

20 Now unto God and our Father 

be glory for ever and ever. 

Amen.


1 Timothy 6:6-10

King James Version

6 But godliness with contentment is great gain.

7 For we brought nothing into this world, 

and it is certain we can carry nothing out.

8 And having food and raiment 

let us be therewith content.

9 But they that will be rich 

fall into temptation and a snare, 

and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, 

which drown men in destruction and perdition.

10 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.


1 Timothy 6:17-19

King James Version

17 Charge them that are rich in this world, 

that they be not highminded, 

nor trust in uncertain riches, 

but in the living God, 

who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;

18 That they do good, 

that they be rich in good works, 

ready to distribute, 

willing to communicate;

19 Laying up in store for themselves 

a good foundation against the time to come, 

that they may lay hold on eternal life.


Hebrews 13:5-8

King James Version

5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; 

and be content with such things as ye have: 

for he hath said, 

I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

6 So that we may boldly say, 

The Lord is my helper, 

and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

7 Remember them which have the rule over you, 

who have spoken unto you the word of God: 

whose faith follow, 

considering the end of their conversation.

8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, 

and to day, and for ever.


Let our riches be in CHRIST.

That we may be prepared for His coming.

Which can be at any moment.

2 Peter 3:10-14

King James Version

10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; 

in the which the heavens 

shall pass away with a great noise, 

and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, 

the earth also and the works that are therein 

shall be burned up.

11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, 

what manner of persons ought ye to be 

in all holy conversation and godliness,

12 Looking for and hasting 

unto the coming of the day of God, 

wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, 

and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

13 Nevertheless we, 

according to his promise, 

look for new heavens and a new earth, 

wherein dwelleth righteousness.

14 Wherefore, beloved, 

seeing that ye look for such things, 

be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, 

without spot, 

and blameless.

TRUE financial WISDOM

 

1 Timothy 6:10

King James Version

10 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.


How can we be wise, financially?

Where do we put our trust in?

Who can tell us all we need to know?

How can we live, and prosper fairly?

First, let's look at the root cause of all our troubles.

This love for money.

This insatiable desire to acquire, possess, and dominate.

This gnawing desire to be the wealthiest, the most famous, the most powerful.

All at the expense of those who know nothing about finance.

Surely, we know that when you get to the top, others get stepped on.

Today, we viewed a video, on yet another failed financial scheme.

And yet, time and again, people never learn.

The moment you invest in something you know nothing about, it's always 50-50.

The moment you trust in someone you know nothing about, it's always 50-50.

The moment you follow unbelievers, it's 100% disaster.


Isn't the latter a bit tough?

Not so, for a TRUE believer in JESUS will never cause you harm.

He will always lead you to Scripture, where the LORD's truth is.

He has no interest in running away with your money.

In all probability, he has no money.

And has absolutely no interest in it.

The LORD provides, that's all he cares to know.

It's a shame some ministries have succumbed to the appeal of gold, glory, and greed.

But that's for another post.

Many people invest everything they have, after they've heard of big gains.

Even as the big guns have already known about it ahead of time.

The rumor spreads like wildfire.

Everyone wants to be in on it.

Everyone wants a piece of the pie.

In truth, the perpetrators want the pie to themselves.

The smaller investors hope their money would grow.

More often than not, it doesn't.

They get a taste of profit.

A pittance, compared to the big guns' gains.

But do we really know how the money grows?

Where it gets invested?

The money gets invested in equally-deceptive schemes.

Cheating the less fortunate people from their life savings.

Causing much poverty, anger, and disillusionment everywhere.

It's the oldest scheme in the world.

To get people's trust, and to run away with their money.

And then, a fall guy is appointed to take the brunt when the time comes.

How can we really trust each other, when only GOD is good?

JESUS already told us that.

Luke 18:19

King James Version

19 And Jesus said unto him, 

Why callest thou me good? 

none is good, save one, 

that is, God.


Let's face it.

We're all sinful.

Romans 3:23

King James Version

23 For all have sinned, 

and come short of the glory of God;


Genesis 6:5-6

King James Version

5 And God saw that the wickedness of man 

was great in the earth, 

and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart 

was only evil continually.

6 And it repented the Lord 

that he had made man on the earth, 

and it grieved him at his heart.


When money is the subject, people's eyes take on a different hue, and brightness.

Our better judgment falters.

Our minds think of future gains.

Whether they be realistic, altruistic, or unrealistic.

There should have been enough financial disasters to prove that man's greed is insatiable.

Once again revealing our combined foolishness.

GREED is ALWAYS at the CORE.

It's time to focus on GOD, and not on greed, pride, vanity, false weights, love for money, fame, or power.

Where we're all going, we will leave everything behind.

Doesn't matter it if seems you own the world.

1 Timothy 6:7

King James Version

7 For we brought nothing into this world, 

and it is certain we can carry nothing out.


JESUS can come for His faithful anytime.

All the money in the world will be as nothing.

We all want to profit, but it's better to profit from GOD's WORD.

Isaiah 48:17-18

King James Version

17 Thus saith the Lord, thy Redeemer, 

the Holy One of Israel; 

I am the Lord thy God which teacheth thee to profit, 

which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go.

18 O that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments! 

then had thy peace been as a river, 

and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea:


Put not your trust in man.

Psalm 146:3-5

King James Version

3 Put not your trust in princes, 

nor in the son of man, 

in whom there is no help.

4 His breath goeth forth, 

he returneth to his earth; 

in that very day his thoughts perish.

5 Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, 

whose hope is in the Lord his God:


TRUST in the LORD always.

Proverbs 3:5

King James Version

5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; 

and lean not unto thine own understanding.


In truth, if you are born again, being instructed by SPIRIT, you will know GOD's stand on money.

Matthew 6:24

King James Version

24 No man can serve two masters: 

or either he will hate the one, and love the other; 

or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. 

Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

HIT by a TON of BRICS?

  Proverbs 18:11 King James Version 11 The rich man's wealth is his strong city,  and as an high wall in his own conceit . Nope, it'...
