New Zealand’s Economy Contracts


While New Zealand has been doing relatively well during the great recession, its economy seems to be have run into problems:

New Zealand Economy Contracts as Quake Hurts Growth

New Zealand’s economy unexpectedly contracted in the third quarter and moved closer to a recession as the worst earthquake in eight decades slowed housing and manufacturing.

The earthquake was reported here back in early September (see New Zealand Hit By Powerful Earthquake).

As an Anglo-descended nation, New Zealand is subject to the same blessings and cursings that the others are also subject to.

Additionally, Jesus, of course, warned about a time with such issues that New Zealand is facing:

8 … And there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be…troubles. These are the beginnings of sorrows. (Mark 13:8)

We may be at this prophetic point as all the earthquakes and other problems that have happened in the past year could be considered as “troubles”.  With having one of the highest sexual promiscuity rates in the world, the sins of New Zealand are affecting it.

Without national repentance, New Zealand is doomed.  Having been to that multi-island nation, this seems to be a concept that few in New Zealand grasp.
