Business Insider: “This past week hasn’t been easy for the Russian economy: on Thursday, the EU foreign ministers decided to extend the sanctions on Russia by six months. Additionally, the Central Bank slashed interest rates to 15% down from 17% after the economy deteriorated following the rate hike in December.

But Morgan Stanley is forecasting a pretty scary forecast for the future too.

We downgrade 2015 growth from -1.7%Y to -5.6%Y and revise our 2016 growth from a mild (0.8%Y) recovery to a 2.5%Y recession,” writes Morgan Stanley’s Alina Slyusarchuk.”

Opinion: In addition to Russia’s role in Bible prophecy, Morgan Stanley is oblivious to the fact that the symbol for Russia is a bear, and when a bear is backed into a corner, it will be the most dangerous.

In Joel Rosenberg’s ground-breaking book “Epicenter“, chapter 7 is titled ‘A Czar Rises In Russia’. Rosenberg is not a prophet, but he has a clear understanding of the prophetic war detailed from beginning to end in Ezekiel 38-39.

Rosenberg indicates that the geopolitical alliances we see today look eerily similar to those described by Ezekiel and that Vladimir Putin could fit the rising czar whom Ezekiel calls Gog (Ezekiel 38:1-2).

Putin’s number one goal is to restore Russia as a global powerhouse; he considers the 1991 demise of the Soviet Union the greatest tragedy of the 20th century.

Three possible wars:

  1. Since Ezekiel 38:11 calls for Israel to be living in peace and safety, Bible prophecy scholars place the Arab invasion of Psalm 83 as a prelude to Ezekiel.
  2. Putin, in defiance of the West, could move to take East Ukraine back to the Russian orbit – leaving West Ukraine free to join the European Union in partial fulfillment of Daniel 2:40-42 (revived Roman Empire)
  3. Shiite Muslims may be compelled to begin a war to take over Saudi Arabia, based on Islamic prophecies that King Abdullah’s death would set off  events that would destabilize Saudi Arabia and culminate in the rise of Imam Mahdi (the messianic figure of Islamic eschatology).

According to Insiidetrac (investment) research, April 2015 marks an interesting 40-year cycle of war and peace:

  • 1775 – Revolutionary War begins (shot heard ’round the world)
  • 1815  – War of 1812 ends (British exit America)
  • 1855 –  Civil War timeline (events leading to war begins)
  • 1895 – Spanish American War timeline (Second War for Independence in Cuba)
  • 1935 – WWII timeline (Mussolini orders his troops into Abyssinia)
  • 1975 – Viet Nam war ends
  • 2015 – ???

According to the Bible, the number 40 has significance as a  period of testing and judgment:

  1. The rains (in Noah’s day) fell for 40 days and nights (Genesis 7:4).
  2. Israel ate manna for 40 years (Exodus 16:35).
  3. Moses was with God on the mount, 40 days and nights (Exodus 24:18).
  4. Moses was again with God 40 days and 40 nights (Exodus 34:28).
  5. Moses led Israel from Egypt at age 80 (2 times 40), and after 40 years in the wilderness, died at 120 (3 times 40, Deut. 34:7)
  6. Goliath presented himself to Israel for 40 days (1 Samuel 17:16).
  7. David reigned over Israel for 40 years (2 Samuel 5:4, 1 Kings 2:11).
  8. Jesus fasted 40 days and nights (Matthew 4:2).
  9. Jesus was tempted 40 days (Luke 4:2, Mark 1:13).
  10. Jesus remained on earth 40 days after resurrection (Acts 1:3)

foreignThe New American: “To comply with unconstitutional pseudo-treaties negotiated by the Obama administration without the consent of Congress or any semblance of constitutional authority, the IRS announced that it will be sharing private financial information on U.S. bank account holders with foreign powers. No warrant is needed for foreign governments or tyrants to peruse the sensitive information at will — including brutal communist regimes and possibly even criminals or hackers.

Under the new data-exchange scheme unveiled by the Internal Revenue Service last week, any foreign government that has signed an unconstitutional “Intergovernmental Agreement” (IGA) with the Obama administration has automatic access to the private financial data of its residents with U.S. accounts or assets, including Americans.

On the IRS list of foreign governments that will soon be able to access (and potentially abuse) the private financial information of their subjects and even some Americans are many of the most murderous and corrupt regimes on Earth.”

Opinion: Ok, let’s add 2+2 and see if it equals 4.

President Obama is signing onto the UN Arms Treaty, UN climate protocols, UN internet controls, and now private citizen data-sharing in violation of the 4th Amendment.

Interestingly, Ban Ki Moon’s term as Secretary General of the UN ends on December 31, 2016 while President Obama’s term as President of the United States ends 19 days later on January 20, 2017.

Pardon me while I once again climb out on a limb:

Excerpt from our book Antichrist The Search For Amalek: “President Obama, nearing the end of eight tumultuous years, was ready for a new job, and as fate would have it, one was about to be offered to him.

Ban Ki Moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations, was ready to announce his retirement to be effective at the end of his term on December 31, 2016. The world was ready for new leadership, and Ban, nearing seventy-two, was exhausted.

The UN vacancy, if accepted, would be a perfect fit for the internationally popular US president. By the end of summer 2016, the upcoming US elections were in full swing …”

euroInvestors Business Daily Op-Ed:Economics: Despite the opposition of the European Union’s most powerful nation, Germany, the European Central Bank has launched a massive quantitative easing program. It’s not what the stagnant EU needs.

Yes, markets rallied on the news, largely cheering the fact that someone, anyone, seems to be doing something about the eurozone’s fast-deflating and slumping economy. But the giddiness isn’t likely to last.”

Opinion: Definitions:

  • Inflation – A general increase in prices and fall in the purchasing value of money.
  • Deflation – A general decline in prices, often caused by a reduction in the supply of money or credit.
  • Hyperinflation – Sudden price increases out of control rendering the concept of inflation meaningless.

Central bankers are convinced that the world’s economies are deflating and it is their job to jump-start inflation. In order to make controlled inflation happen, bankers have been experimenting since 2008 with quantitative easing (QE), or creating money to buy back the nation’s debt (bonds).

When bonds are purchased in massive quantities interest rates go down, and conversely when bonds are sold in massive quantities interest rates go up.

Yesterday, Mario Draghi, the European Central Bank president announced a new QE of bond purchases to the tune of 60 billion euros per month. Draghi, whose name translates to dragon, is a Harvard educated, Goldman Sachs banker who is either lying or ignorant of the commonsense economic principles regarding counterfeit money.

Someday the bill for the created debt will have to be paid. Economies have two natural cures for excessive government: spending and debt.

Recession: period of temporary economic decline during which trade and industrial activity are reduced, generally identified by a fall in GDP in two successive quarters.

Depression: a severe and sustained long-term downturn in economic activity; an extreme recession that lasts two or more years.

The recession of 2008-9 should have resulted in depression. Government tinkering in the housing market forced lenders to sell mortgages to people who had no hope of paying them off, packaged up those mortgages and sold them to banks all over the world.

But, instead of allowing the depression to cleanse the market, government tinkered again and created more money called stimulus, or QE.

Chairman Draghi’s new QE caused euphoria yesterday in the world’s stock markets, much like a 5 year old on too much sugar.

Someday, that 5 year old will get a real bad tummy ache.

Hyperinflation is sudden and prophetic, Revelation 6:5-6.
