STATE OF THE UNION
In recent days we have gotten more new numbers which seem to confirm that a major economic slowdown is upon us. The following are 14 signs that the U.S. economy is poised to crash hard during the second half of 2022. And it might not stop at being a recession, it could end in a total 1929 Depression or worse. The can has been kicked down the road and hit a wall. So a good idea to start thinking about a “Victory Garden” as in 1941….. I just enjoyed some fresh kale from our garden last night, it was so very good. So you might want to seriously prep for this coming event.
So it would seem that our world is about ready to explode into WW3, like the fuse is lit. Russia (Putin) will continue to try to win in Ukraine, China will attack the Island of Formosa, which the U.S. is pledged to defend. So again the U.S. could end up fighting on two fronts. 2 former American Generals were concerned about this very thing at end of WW2.
1. One survey that was just released discovered that 35% of all small business owners in the U.S. “could not pay their rent in full or on time in June.” 2. A different survey found that 51% of all small businesses owners in the U.S. believe rising prices could “force them to close their businesses within the next six months.” 3. It is being reported that 45% of all small businesses in the U.S. have already decided to freeze the hiring of new workers.
4. Sales of previously owned homes dropped 5.4% during the month of June. That is now the fifth month in a row that we have seen a decline. 5. In three-fourths of the metro areas that Redfin tracks, at least 25% of home sellers reduced their asking price during the month of June. 6. Blackstone has prepared a war chest of $50 billion so that it can scoop up depressed real estate all over the country after housing prices have crashed in the months ahead. 7. The number of Americans applying for jobless benefits has risen to the highest level in eight months. 8. Employment postings for software development jobs have dropped off by more than 12% during the past four weeks. 9. The Conference Board’s index of leading economic indicators has now fallen for four months in a row. 10. The S&P Global Flash U.S. PMI Composite Output Index just went negative for the very first time since the last recession. 11. The latest number for the Philadelphia Fed manufacturing index came in at -12.3, and that was much worse than what most experts were anticipating. Any reading below zero indicates contraction, and needless to say this reading was way below zero. 12. Inflation continues to rage out of control even as economic activity in the U.S. significantly slows down. If you can believe it, the average price of a used vehicle in the United States has now risen to a whopping $33,341. 13. The Atlanta Fed is now projecting that U.S. economic growth for the second quarter will come in at -1.6%. If it is ultimately confirmed that the U.S. economy has already been contracting for two quarters in a row, that would mean that we are officially in a recession right now. 14. Thanks in part to the rapidly tanking economy, Joe Biden’s approval rating has plunged all the way down to 31%. (No way to validate this info. but seems true.)
The Word of God tell us to “LOOK UP” for our redemption is close. “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” Luke 21:28, This was the prophesy of Jesus as understood by Luke and recorded by Luke about this time, seems to me. 15 prophesies in this Jesus prophesy seem to be happening and being fulfilled at this time.
Jesus taught us about this time in Matt.24, Mark 13 and Luke 21. All three, the same prophesy, but all three accounts need to be put together to get the full impact of where we are in the prophesy. I have an 11 page white paper on the subject called, “The Return of The King.” If interested, just write for it and I will send you a copy, no charge. In the Matt. prophesy, Jesus gives an overview, then HE shares about Titus in 70 AD and then HE continues with a more inclusive substance of this time in Matt. 21 and in Matt.24:37 HE shares about the Rapture which was not one of their questions. Then Mark and Luke add in some more that Matthew has missed. “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. 9 And when he (Jesus) had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. 10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; 11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven. Acts 1:8-11. Personally, we should not be in fear, but in an awareness that HIS return for HIS Church could be very soon.
But TODAY, I am seeing a great division between a lot of “social Christians” and “Biblical Christians” and P.T..L. it is not up to me to make the determination. But it is obvious that many have embraced vain church traditions believing them to be true when they are not, Mark 7:6-9, Luke 11:52, Col.2:8 (Look it up for yourself). So it is really up to you to check out your doctrine with the Word of God in context. And it is really very easy to do as there will be no excuse on the Day Of Judgment. GoTo: https://www.biblegateway.com/keyword/ And add your word of interest or concern, pick out the translation that you like, hit the little red key with the eye glass in it and watch what happens. You can read all that the Bible has to share on that word or thought very quickly. So then you can really know what God thinks about most anything. If you look up obedience, you will find that it is not optional as most traditions teach. I like the Amplified Bible a lot but the King James is still probably the most accurate translation. Translations all have slight issues, But God’s Truth is in Contex with all the scriptures on a given subject. That will give you God’s Truth with HIS Freedom and Power when you believe with a whole heart. Our Creator God is not going to allow this earthly virus of pride and rebellion to contaminate the rest of HIS creation. Look at what it has done to our earth. So obedience to Jesus is the only cure.
So if you want to live eternally with our Creator God, it would be wise to check your foundations as to be upon the Rock of God as in Isa. 28:5-20. Sand is not a good place to build. As a general contractor, I know this for a fact and Jesus also relates to that fact as to HIS word being the only rock to build on. Matt.7:26
