Many believers are getting ready for the Rapture and many see increased persecution of Christians imminent. Whilst both may be right, God is still in control and He is working out His plans and purposes. With increased shaking and persecution come opportunities for us to be the salt and light in the marketplace. For those “in step with the Holy Spirit, they will be like the men of Issachar able to discern the times and know what to do.
Governments have reached beyond God’s appointed boundaries. They have displaced the roles of families, free enterprise, church, non profits and volunteerism. Governments have tried to play God and are not up to the task.
Most nations are in so much debt there is no way out. They are struggling to pay the interest at near zero interest rates. Stock Market collapses are imminent
With near zero interest rates retirees are struggling to survive as they spend their savings. Housing prices are inflated as people buy investment homes for future retirement income. Share prices are similarly inflated as people chase dividends.
The big banks exposure to derivative contracts is horrendous. Goldman Sachs total assets in 2014 was a shade over 105 billion dollars but their total exposure to Derivatives is more than 48 trillion dollars, i.e. 460 times greater than their total assets. The Derivatives bubble is like the “sword of Damocles” hanging over the global economy by a thread day after day, month after month. At some point the thread is going to break and all hell will break loose. A financial crisis far greater than what was experienced in 2008 is coming and can’t be too far off – sometime in 2016/2017.
Isaiah said: ” …unto us a Son is given (Jesus): and the government shall be upon His shoulders and His name shall be called Wonderful Counsellor, mighty God …
Jesus has a body on the earth and His body has to see itself as the administrator of heaven on earth. We are the temples of the Holy Spirit through whom Jesus can implement His plans and purposes on this earth.
The Hebrew word for worship is also the word for work, our work should be our worship, if it is done excellently, as unto the Lord.
God wants to build businesses that will effect change… for profit, for purpose, forever – even in the midst of shaking.
