Tough Transitional Times by pengxuebo


									   Critical Crucial Times:
Are You Prepared Spiritually
       and Physically

 Some Trends that are
  Shaping our World
       When Things Get Bad
• We all hope that people we know will
  turn and repent when ―things get bad
  enough.‖ One has to ask, ―how bad is
  bad enough‖?
• No evidence of repentance when
  things get bad.
         Matthew 25:1-3
―1 ¶ Then shall the kingdom of heaven be
likened unto ten virgins, which took their
lamps, and went forth to meet the
bridegroom. 2 And five of them were wise,
and five [were] foolish. 3 They that [were]
foolish took their lamps, and took no oil
with them:‖ (Matthew 25:1-3 AV)
         Matthew 24:4-7
―4 But the wise took oil in their vessels
with their lamps. 5 While the bridegroom
tarried, they all slumbered and slept. 6
And at midnight there was a cry made,
Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out
to meet him. 7 Then all those virgins
arose, and trimmed their lamps.‖ (Matthew
25:4-7 AV)
         Matthew 25:8-10
―8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give
us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
9 But the wise answered, saying, [Not so];
lest there be not enough for us and you:
but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy
for yourselves. 10 And while they went to
buy, the bridegroom came; and they that
were ready went in with him to the
marriage: and the door was shut.
        Matthew 25:11-13
11 Afterward came also the other virgins,
saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12 But he
answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I
know you not. 13 Watch therefore, for ye
know neither the day nor the hour wherein
the Son of man cometh.‖ (Matthew 25:8-
13 AV)
       Revelation 9:18-19
―18 By these three was the third part of
men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke,
and by the brimstone, which issued out of
their mouths. 19 For their power is in their
mouth, and in their tails: for their tails
[were] like unto serpents, and had heads,
and with them they do hurt.‖ (Revelation
9:18-19 AV)
        Revelation 9:20-21
―20 And the rest of the men which were
not killed by these plagues yet repented
not of the works of their hands, that they
should not worship devils, and idols of
gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and
of wood: which neither can see, nor hear,
nor walk: 21 Neither repented they of their
murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their
fornication, nor of their thefts.‖ (Revelation
9:20-21 AV)
      Discerning the Times
• So what about you? Are you
  discerning the times? Or will you
  turn a deaf ear?

• God says to all of us today: ―He
  who has an ear to hear, let him
  Trends and Bible Prophecy
• How do the trends of the day reflect prophecies
  for the end times?
• ―32 ¶ Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When
  his branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves,
  ye know that summer [is] nigh: 33 So likewise
  ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that
  it is near, [even] at the doors. 34 Verily I say
  unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all
  these things be fulfilled.‖ (Matthew 24:32-34 AV)
 Specific Purpose Statement
Encourage you to research all of these
trends. All you have to do is to write down
the key titles and/or words, search the
Bible, and surf the net. You will find
numerous scriptures, news items, articles,
editorials and blogs on nearly all of the
major topics we mention here today.
   The Disciples’ Questions
―1 ¶ And Jesus went out, and departed from the
temple: and his disciples came to [him] for to
shew him the buildings of the temple. 2 And
Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these
things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be
left here one stone upon another, that shall not
be thrown down. 3 And as he sat upon the
mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him
privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things
be? and what [shall be] the sign of thy coming,
and of the end of the world?‖ (Matthew 24:1-3

       Drought and Famine
The countries that make up two thirds of the
world’s agricultural output are experiencing
drought conditions. Whether you watch a
drought map of China, Australia, Africa, South
America, or the US, the scene will be the same:
misery, ruined crops, and dying cattle.
The drought in Northern China, the worst in 50
years, is worsening, and summer harvest is now
threatened. The area of affected crops has
expanded to 161 million mu (26.5 million acres)
(was 141 million last week), and 4.37 million
people and 2.1 million livestock are facing
drinking water shortage. The scarcity of rain in
some parts of the north and central provinces is
the worst in recorded history.
Australia has been experiencing an
unrelenting drought since 2004, and 41
percent of Australia's agriculture continues
to suffer from the worst drought in 117
years of record-keeping. The drought has
been so severe that rivers stopped
flowing, lakes turned toxic, and farmers
abandoned their land in frustration.
California is facing its worst drought in recorded
history. The drought is predicted to be the most
severe in modern times, worse than those in
1977 and 1991. Thousands of acres of row
crops already have been fallowed, with more to
follow. The snowpack in the Northern Sierra,
home to some of the state's most important
reservoirs, proved to be just 49 percent of
average. Governor Schwarzenegger has
declared a state of emergency.
The Texan drought is reaching historic
proportion. Dry conditions near Austin and San
Antonio have been exceeded only once
before—the drought of 1917-18. 88 percent of
Texas is experiencing abnormally dry conditions,
and 18 percent of the state is in either extreme
or exceptional drought conditions. The drought
areas have been expanding almost every
month. Conditions in Texas are so bad cattle are
keeling over in parched pastures and dying.
Georgia, South Carolina, North
This region has been suffering from a worsening
two year drought. Augusta, Georgia’s rainfall
deficit is already approaching 2 inches so far in
2009, with January being the driest since 1989.
Florida has been hard hit by winter drought,
damaging crops, and half of the state is in some
level of a drought.
The worst drought in half a century has turned
Argentina's once-fertile soil to dust and pushed
the country into a state of emergency. Cow
carcasses litter the prairie fields, and sun-
scorched soy plants wither under the South
American summer sun. Argentina's food
production is set to go down a minimum of 50
percent, maybe more.
Brazil has cut its outlook for the crops and will do
so again after assessing damage to plants from
desiccation in drought-stricken regions. Brazil is
the world's second-biggest exporter of soybeans
and third-largest for corn.
              Horn of Africa
Lack of water to grow plants, and the declining
soil fertility across Africa is exacerbating
drought-related crop losses. Africa faces food
shortages and famine. Food production across
the Horn of Africa has suffered because of the
lack of rainfall. Also, half the agricultural soil has
lost necessary nutrients.
               Middle East
The Middle East and Central Asia are suffering
from the worst droughts in recent history, and
food grain production has dropped to some of
the lowest levels in decades. Total wheat
production in the wider drought-affected region
is currently estimated to have declined by at
least 22 percent in 2009. Major reservoirs in
Turkey, Iran, Iraq, and Syria are all at low levels
requiring restrictions on usage. Given the
severity of crop losses in the region, a major
shortage of planting seed for the 2010 crop is
           Global Food Supply
• Global Food Supply Near the Breaking Point
  By Stephen Leahy
  The world is now eating more food than farmers
  grow, pushing global grain stocks to their lowest
  level in 30 years.
  Rising population, water shortages, climate change, and
  the growing costs of fossil fuel-based fertilizers point to a
  calamitous shortfall in the world's grain supplies in the
  near future.
  Thirty years ago, the oceans were teeming with fish, but
  today more people rely on farmers to produce their food
  than ever before.
       Other Factors Leading
          Food Shortage
• Lack of credit prevents farmers from buying
  seed and fertilizer
• Commodity prices too low to off set inflation
• Food stockpiles are already dangerously low
• Food production worldwide will fall 20 to 40
  percent in 2009

Bible Prophecy & Leadership
―[As for] my people, children [are] their
oppressors, and women rule over them. O
my people, they which lead thee cause
[thee] to err, and destroy the way of thy
paths.‖ (Isaiah 3:12 AV)
   Will You Stand in the Gap?
• ―30 And I sought for a man among them,
  that should make up the hedge, and stand
  in the gap before me for the land, that I
  should not destroy it: but I found none. 31
  Therefore have I poured out mine
  indignation upon them; I have consumed
  them with the fire of my wrath: their own
  way have I recompensed upon their
  heads, saith the Lord GOD.‖ (Ezekiel

Brown & Obama Meeting
Economic crisis threatens the idea
        of one Europe
The leaders of the European Union
gathered Sunday in Brussels for an
emergency summit meeting designed to
tamp down the centrifugal forces
unleashed by the global economic crisis
that threaten to spin the bloc - and its
single currency - apart.
     Europe’s Bank Shortage
• Europe’s banks face a $2 trillion dollar
• European banks face a US dollar
  “funding gap” of almost $2 trillion as a
  result of aggressive expansion around
  the world and may have difficulties
  rolling over debts, according to a report
  by the Bank for International
              EU not a Nation
• The European Union is not a country, and the
  deep global contraction is stimulating
  nationalism, not consensus.
• With uncertain leadership and few powerful
  collective institutions, the union is struggling with
  the strains this economic crisis has inevitably
  produced among 27 different countries with
  different economic histories. The traditional
  concept of "solidarity," of one for all, is being
  undermined by protectionist pressures from
  political leaders with national constituencies
  and agendas.
   New 'Iron Curtain' will split EU's
           Rich and Poor
• Eastern European countries gave an apocalyptic
  warning yesterday of hordes of unemployed
  workers heading west as a new Iron Curtain
  divides rich from poor inside Europe.
• Twenty years after the fall of the Berlin Wall,
  Western leaders were told yesterday that five
  million jobs could be lost in the ―new‖ European
  Union countries of the East unless radical action
  were taken to bail them out
American capitalism has been the world’s
biggest debtor for more than two decades. Its
biggest lender is China . The size of the figures
are important. China ’s almost $2,000 bn in
foreign exchange reserves are the world’s
largest. Much of these reserves are being
directed to the purchase of U S Treasuries.
According to the estimates of Brad Selser the
real figure is nearer $2,300bn.. or equivalent to
$1,600 for every Chinese citizen.
     US’s & China’s Symbiotic
Chinese misgivings are present but they have
made a pact with the devil and can do little to
alter this state of affairs. ―Except for US
Treasuries what can you hold‖ asks Luo Ping, a
director-general at the China Banking
Regulatory Commission. ―You don’t hold
Japanese government bonds or UK bonds. US
Treasuries are the safe haven. For
everyone, including China, it is the only option‖.
This in my view is the tragedy of China’s power
elite presiding over a capitalist economy that has
shed all pretences of being socialist.
―The stranger that [is] within you
shall get up above you very high;
and you shall come down very
low. He shall lend to thee, and
you shall not lend to him: he shall
be the head, and you shall be the
tail.‖ (Deuteronomy 28:43-44 )
―Moreover all these curses shall come
upon thee, and shall pursue you, and
overtake you, till you be destroyed;
because thou hearkens not unto the voice
of the LORD thy God, to keep his
commandments and his statutes which he
commanded you: 46 And they shall be
upon thee for a sign and for a wonder, and
upon thy seed for ever.‖ (Deuteronomy
28:45-46 )
World Leaders Call for World Unity
        Return to Babel
• When times become harder and challenges
  greater that across the world countries must
  show vision, leadership and courage – and,
  while we can do a great deal nationally, we can
  do even more working together internationally.
• So now is the time for leaders of every country in
  the world to work together to agree the action
  that will see us through the current crisis and
  ensure we come out stronger.
    Strategies for Developing
    New World Order
1 Create a World food bank,
2 Provide for international control of all
sources and supplies,
3 Internationalize commodity markets,
4 Establish international control over the
wealth of the oceans and deep seabeds,
5 Provide for international control of the
"weather at human command",
  NWO Strategies Continued
6 Rewrite the rules of trade and investment,
7 Create a world currency,
8 Create a world police to "keep the peace when
is threatened and restore the peace when it is
broken," and
9 Provide special programs to teach the benefits
of the New Order in each of six categories of
American institutions, namely business,
corporations, labor unions, nonprofit enterprises,
communications media, educational systems
and government agencies.
              A NWO Plan
Representatives of the United States and the
European Union signed a new "transatlantic
economic partnership" at a recent summit in
Washington DC. Ms. Angela Merkel, president of
the European Union, and George Bush,
president of the Untied States, agreed to set up
an "economic council" to move ahead with
regulatory convergence in some 40 areas,
including intellectual property, financial services,
business takeovers and open skies -- the ability
to fly to airports anywhere in Europe and
America without the need for passports or visas.
Bush & Merkel
   CFR Advocate International
In a recent issue of Foreign Affairs magazine (a
CFR publication), Benn Steil, director of
international economics at the Council of
Foreign Relations (CFR) advocated the
globalization of all currencies. In his article
entitled, "The End of National Currency," he
said, "The right course is not to return to a
mythical past of monetary sovereignty, with
governments controlling local interest and
exchange rates in blissful ignorance of the rest
of the world.
 International Currency Continued
• Governments must let go of the fatal notion that
  nationhood requires them to make and control
  the money used in their territory.―
• He continued, "In order to globalize safely,
  countries should abandon monetary nationalism
  and abolish unwanted currencies, the source of
  much of today’s instability. Monetary nationalism
  is simply incompatible with globalism.
    Club of Rome Promotes
       European Union
Founded in 1968, the Club of Rome is
responsible for today’s United
Europe. Its 1972 report, The Limits of
Growth, served as blueprint for this
gutsy new political, economic, and
military union. As noted above the
Club of Rome has divided the world
into ten political-economic regions
referred to as ―kingdoms.‖

   Gays Seek Normalization
Pat Buchanan writes: In its relentless drive to
overthrow the moral code that has guided Western
civilization since Constantine, the homosexual lobby
has moved from triumph to triumph in a few years.
And what would constitute total victory for "gay
values" over traditional values?
Answer: Acceptance by a majority of Americans of
the idea that homosexual relations are as natural,
normal and moral as those between a man and his
wife, and the extension of the full rights of married
couples to homosexual unions.
    Gays Seek Freedom While
      Preaching Conformity
"In a free society, everyone will be gay," writes
Allen Young, a pioneer of the Gay Liberation
Movement. (John D'Emilio, Intimate Matters: A
History of Sexuality in America, p.322)
The gay-feminists have waged their war with
impunity by asserting their victim status.
Heterosexuals can't even defend their own
sexuality for fear of accusations of "homophobia"
and "sexism." These days anyone who does not
want to be gay is labeled homophobic.
    Global Financial Crisis
KINGSTON, NY, 2, March 2009 - The
Trends Research Institute forecast "The
Greatest Depression" ever, well before
Wall Street or Washington would
acknowledge recession, is upon us.
There will be no turn around in the second
quarter of 2009 or 2010 or 2011 America
and much of the world has entered "The
Greatest Depression."
         Celente Forecasts
Expect massive bank failures, runs on banks,
and bank holidays. Even if deposits are FDIC
insured, quick access to money is by no
means assured. At minimum, have reserves on
hand for emergencies.

Trendpost: When the ship is sinking there are
very few options: Life boats, life rafts, life
preservers and for the late to act, possibly a few
pieces of floating debris to cling to.

―He who owns the gold makes the rules.‖
Most of the world’s currencies are not
  backed by gold.
So he who controls the currency supply
  makes the rules.
In the US the Federal Reserve controls the
  money supply.
           The Usury Game
• The US treasury prints treasury notes for
  the Federal Reserve and then the
  government borrows the treasury notes
  from the Federal Reserve.
• Then the US government sells their debt in
  the form of bonds to other countries.
• China and Japan hold billions and billions
  in US paper currencies.
       God Condemns Usury
• Exodus 22:25 If thou lend money to any of my

The work force, factories, natural
resources are the same as before the

      Obama and Ahmadinejad
       Forbes - Oct 26, 2008
• Is Barack Obama the ―promised warrior‖
  coming to help the Hidden Imam of Shiite
  Muslims conquer the world?
• The question has made the rounds in Iran since
  last month, when a pro-government Web site
  published a Hadith (or tradition) from a Shiite
  text of the 17th century. The tradition comes
  from Bahar al-Anvar (meaning Oceans of Light)
  by Mullah Majlisi, a magnum opus in 132
  volumes and the basis of modern Shiite Islam.
According to the tradition, Imam Ali Ibn Abi-
Talib (the prophet’s cousin and son-in-law)
prophesied that at the End of Times and just
before the return of the Mahdi, the Ultimate
Saviour, a ―tall black man will assume the reins
of government in the West.‖ Commanding ―the
strongest army on earth,‖ the new ruler in the
West will carry ―a clear sign‖ from the third
imam, whose name was Hussein Ibn Ali. The
tradition concludes: ―Shiites should have no
doubt that he is with us.‖
In a curious coincidence Obama’s
first and second names–Barack
Hussein–mean ―the blessing of
Hussein‖ in Arabic and Persian. His
family name, Obama, written in the
Persian alphabet, reads O Ba Ma,
which means ―he is with us,‖ the
magic formula in Majlisi’s tradition.
Mystical reasons aside, the Khomeinist
establishment sees Obama’s rise as
another sign of the West’s decline and the
triumph of Islam. Obama’s promise to
seek unconditional talks with the Islamic
Republic is cited as a sign that the U.S. is
ready to admit defeat.
Obama has also promised to attend a
summit of the Organization of the Islamic
Conference within the first 100 days of his
presidency. Such a move would please
the mullahs, who have always demanded
that Islam be treated differently, and that
Muslim nations act as a bloc in dealings
with Infidel nations.
