CG7: Financial Armageddon?

Rebuilt Gymnasium in Sardis


An article in CG7’s latest Bible Advocate (BA below) has an interview with with Crown Financial Ministries CEO Chuck Bentley (CB below):

BA: Some Christians think this recession is part of God’s end-time plan leading to world collapse and Armageddon; others think we’ll pull out of it. What’s your perspective?

CB: A record number of Americans consider the economy to be our greatest problem…

A friend of mine says, “When the good credit of the United States government is finally exhausted and the nation defaults to our creditors, Financial Armageddon will begin.”

Personally I don’t think we are headed there just yet. However, the present shocks and tremors are early warning signs that we must change — now! To prepare for more diffi cult days ahead, Christians should be living in God’s economy. With political leaders calling for a move from the dollar to a single global currency and with a unified global fi nancial policy that governs the world’s largest economies, I believe we are witnessing prophetic signs. The world is rapidly realigning, and we need to be aware of and sensitive to it. But I do not want to overreach and attempt to interpret these signs…

Because of the massive accumulation in USA debt, this particular downturn is quite likely to be part of a sequence of events that will lead to the Great Tribulation, the Day of the Lord, and finally the return of Jesus Christ and the establishment of His kingdom.

There has been no plan at the state (I live in California) or national level that anyone intends to actually get implemented that I believe can truly turn the economy around in the long-term.  However in the short-term, loans and stimulus plans will have some affect.  But long-term those debts will lead to financial and national destruction.

Only national repentance can get the USA out of this, and that is NOT something that national leaders advocate.  Hence, I feel that the USA has already crossed the line and that we truly are on the path to financial Armageddon, and even much worse.  Much, much worse that the CG7 article ever suggests.

I would also add that in additional to personal repentance (which all should look at) some physical preparations may also be wise (though without the spiritual ones, they will be of little value).

Where are the lost ten-tribes of Israel? Who are the lost tribes of Israel? Will God punish the U.S.A., Canada, United Kingdom, and other Anglo nations? Why might God allow them to be punished first?Does God Have a 6,000 Year Plan? What Year Does the 6,000 Years End? Was a 6000 year time allowed for humans to rule followed by a literal thousand year reign of Christ on Earth taught by the early Christians? When does the six thousand years of human rule end?

End of Mayan Calendar 2012–Might 2012 Mean Something? There is a Mayan calendar prediction for change in 2012. 2012 changes were also centuries ago predicted by the Hopi Native Americans (the Hindus may have some predictions for the next decade as well). Do these Mayan/Hindu/Hopi prophecies have any value? Why might Satan have inspired this date? Does the Dresden codex show destruction of the earth by flood? Can the great tribulation start before 2012?
Barack Obama, Prophecy, and the Destruction of the United States Some claim that Barack Obama is the prophesied “son of Kenya”, based up an early 20th century writing.
