Zero Hedge: “In a Fed Staff working paper released over the weekend titled “Gauging the Ability of the FOMC to Respond to Future Recessions” and penned by deputy director of the division of research and statistics at the Fed, the author concludes that “simulations of the FRB/US model of a severe recession suggest that large-scale asset purchases and forward guidance about the future path of the federal funds rate should be able to provide enough additional accommodation to fully compensate for a more limited [ability] to cut short-term interest rates in most, but probably not all, circumstances.”

In other words, the Fed is already factoring in a scenario in which a shock to the economy leads to additional QE of either $2 trillion, or in a worst case scenario, $4 trillion, effectively doubling the current size of the Fed’s balance sheet.”

Opinion: We have been saying since the (supposed) end of QE 3 in 2014, that QE 4 was coming because the economy is propped up on counterfeit money and has been since November 2008.

When the big one comes, economists will wonder why no one saw it coming. They will opine that the Fed had it wrong. That printing money was only delaying a bigger problem while making the rich much – much richer.

The Apostle John saw that coming 2000 years ago “do not hurt the oil and wine“; the rich represented by the oil and wine will be just fine in the first 3 years of the tribulation. (Rev 6:5-6)

Antichrist will have made a deal in the Middle East and a brief period of peace will come upon the world. The Church will have been gone and the world will happily accept the mastermind of the greatest deal ever made as a sort of messiah.

Everybody will be happy: Jews will have a temple, Arabs who survived the Psalm 87 and Gog and Magog wars will have a leader to follow, as will many who called themselves Christians but were left behind, similar to the days before the flood, Mat. 24:38.

But precisely 42 months after the peace deal is enforced, that same leader will walk into a rebuilt temple and declare himself god Daniel 9:27.

The next 42 months will be hell on earth – so much so that John warns everyone with one of the most frightening verses in the Bible for those who have refused the pardon that the cross of Christ provides:

“In those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will desire to die, and death will flee from them.” (Rev. 9:6)

YNet News: “While Israel’s leadership is busy exhausting itself arguing over Hamas’s tunnel digging in Gaza in 2014, they are missing—or perhaps ignoring—a major threat the terror organization is preparing in the West Bank.

This political threat, which very well might pose obstacles to Israel’s operations in the West Bank, can’t be destroyed using technological measures.

Hamas is about to take over the municipal centers of power in the West Bank in a legal and democratic way in several weeks time as part of its plan to take over the entire Palestinian Authority—but we, as we always do, may have missed the train yet again.”

Opinion: Flush with $70 million from the Christian charity World Vision scandal, and from Iranian Obamacash, Hamas appears ready to try for a Palestinian takeover of the West Bank.

Unlike the cunningly deceptive terrorist Mahmoud Abbas, who convinced progressive left leaders that he is a moderate, Hamas overtly declares its intentions to wipe out every Jew in the holy land.

They even said so in their covenant:

“Or struggle against the Jews is very great and very serious and calls for the eventual creation of an Islamic state in Palestine, in place of Israel and the Palestinian Territories, and the obliteration or dissolution of Israel.” 

If Hamas defeats Fatah in the October 8 elections, the danger for Jews in the West Bank will ratchet to new heights, as Palestinian/Hamas territory would grow ten-fold.

Even more daunting is that the West Bank borders Jerusalem. Instead of rockets raining down on the small towns on the Gaza border, the most populous centers of Israel would be under threat, as well as the Holy City.

If the elections swing towards Hamas, Bible students should watch for the beginning of two prophecies:

Psalm 83:6-8, (pre-tribulation) lists both Edom (West Bank-Judea and Samaria) and Philistia (Gaza) as part of an alliance that will attack Israel.

Zechariah 14:2 (post-tribulation) takes place just before the return of Christ.

“The God of Jacob is our refuge.” Psalm 46:7

The first time we see God entering Jacob’s life was that memorable night at Bethel.

A fugitive from his father’s house, fleeing from his brother’s wrath, with probably no thought of God in his mind at all, “When he reached a certain place, he stopped for the night because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones there, he put it under his head and lay down to sleep.” (Genesis 28:11)

As we see him there, asleep on the bare ground, we get a striking picture of man in his natural state. Man is never so helpless—as when asleep! It was while he was in this condition, that God appeared to him, and said, “I am the Lord, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac. I will give you and your descendants the land on which you are lying. Your descendants will be like the dust of the earth, and you will spread out to the west and to the east, to the north and to the south. All peoples on earth will be blessed through you and your offspring. I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.”

The God of Jacob then, is the God who met Jacob while he had nothing, and deserved nothing but wrath—and who gave him everything. Happy indeed are they who have such a God for their God! (Arthur Pink)
