Crises like the dire financial situation of developing countries and the fate of the Sustainable Development Goals. And crises like the lack of guardrails around promising new technologies to heal disease, connect people and expand opportunity.
Are we really in crisis?
As soon as Tuesday came along, after the funeral, normal service was resumed. We had strikes being planned, a racial conflict apparently taking place in Leicester between Muslims and Hindus, news that Eco-Warriors are planning to bring the country to a standstill with a series of protests against the use of fossil fuels, and, of course, the cost of living crisis with the government throwing masses of money at with its mini-budget, pushing up inflation, as the Pound falls and interests interest rates rise.
Apparently, the estimate of what the government is prone to spend on this lies somewhere between 100 and 250 billion Pounds, with people saying it’s actually going to rise to about 500 billion over the next two years.
The question is: where is this money coming from? Because it’s not being raised by taxes so, basically, it’s been borrowed. Basically, it’s being created (quantitative easing) which is NOT a good move, along with tax cuts, which makes it NOT sustainable; especially, as we are already over 200 trillion Pounds in debt.
Graham Bridger who’s a Christian whom I know and who writes on this subject says that ‘a financial tsunami is coming down the line to hit us’; and I think he’s right. Not only here but also in Europe, particularly in Germany.
European officials are trying to prop up the energy markets, talking about a cost of 1.5 trillion Euros. They may still see energy shortages, rationing, and high energy bills all over Europe with a prospect of inflation and shutting down of industry over the coming winter, largely caused by the Russia shutting off energy supplies from through the Nordstrom pipeline which is hitting Germany in particular and the West very hard.
Also, as a result of the green energy program which Germany and the EU are pursuing, if Germany, the European Union’s powerhouse, goes down, it will probably bring down with it most of the European Union and it will affect the United States and the whole world system.
So, you’ve got a whole lot of things happening.
You’ve got other incidents taking place. Storms batter Japan and the Caribbean. Now Canada has unrest.
In Iran, after a woman was killed by the Morality Police for not wearing the hijab properly, crowds are chanting against the Islamic dictatorship slogans like: ‘Death to dictatorship, we don’t want to be ruled by the mullers anymore’; and who can blame them? There is a crackdown coming there from the regime.
And, of course, the situation in Ukraine. I will say a bit more about that in a moment.
What can the nations united do?
If you look around, you can see that there is a sense of an impending crisis which is coming on the world, on all sides. The United Nations General Secretary, Guterres, gave a speech just this week about a number of events which he says are threatening the future of humanity. I quote a few things he said,
Now, whether you believe that or not about the climate emergency, you must acknowledge that the world is in big trouble, in serious trouble on all sides. Whatever you think about it, about what Mr Guterres says, it is, in one sense, true. He’s right about the threat to the future, and you could say that we are gridlocked. As he said, we’re in ‘colossal global dysfunction’, which the UN is powerless to do anything about.
These crises really do threaten the future of our planet and the fate of millions of human beings.
If you believe the Bible, you must recognize that all these things fit in exactly with what the Bible says is going to happen in the last days. Wars and rumours of wars, famines, earthquakes, nation set against Nation, kingdom against kingdom, increase in natural disasters, pestilence, disease spreading. All these things that are taking place now, you can see the Bible says are going to happen. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (Revelation 6:1-8) who are going to ride out, bring more famine and mass death, leading to the final conflict and the Second Coming of Jesus. And, in fact, Jesus is the only one who can sort this out.
When you look at the U.N, Guterres is admitting that, basically, the UN is powerless to stop these things from happening because ‘you can’t get the nations to agree, you can’t get them to do anything positive’.
You’ve even got one of the leaders of the security Council, one of the five members, Russia, now plunging the world into a disastrous war which threatens the future of humanity.
So, what can we do?
We need a man with a plan, don’t we? You need something to be put into place which can prevent these things from happening.
I’ve said that the only One who can sort it out is Jesus. But the question that comes to my mind is: Are they looking for someone else to come and to sort it out?
Well, the interesting thing is that Guterres speaks of
I read through that and said: What does he mean by that? What’s he talking about?
Is he saying that we have now some technologies which we could use to bring about a solution to these problems, but we can’t use them because there’s a general state of confusion in the world?
Yet, if you read between the lines, you can see that there is a plan to do that, a plan to use new technology, to use artificial intelligence to heal disease, to connect people, expand technology and opportunity for people.
Following on some of the things I’ve been saying in the past about the World Economic Forum and the 4th Industrial Revolution, remember that they have a plan to resolve these crises by introducing new ways to control people. I’ve talked about something called ID 2020 which will get everybody onto a database, give everybody an identity which can then be used to monitor and control much about their life, including their health, their vaccination status, make sure they’ve got all the vaccines which the government wants us to have, and then move into the kind of control with which they can monitor and restrict your buying and selling through getting rid of cash and bringing in central bank cryptocurrencies with which can then monitor who is buying what, and who’s selling what leading to a scenario where, if they don’t like what you’re doing, they can cut you off. All of which is already happening in China.
Guterres is talking about some of the things which are here now but which we’re not using yet to the full extent of their capability. And one thing which occurs to me is that what they’re saying is that we’ve got this crisis coming but we need somebody to come in to sort it out.
And perhaps, when the crisis gets really bad, people will say, ‘Okay, we will we’ll accept the kinds of restrictions which you’re proposing in order that we might have peace and safety’.
I’m not saying that is definitely what Guterres meant, but I’m putting that out as an idea. He’s acknowledging that there’s something which has gone wrong and which we don’t have a solution to.
Will somebody come out of this crisis with a plan and with some kind of power, even a supernatural power, but a supernatural power coming from the wrong source, to put it all right?
