The financial crash of 2008 is clear evidence of how corrupt and immoral the financial system is, where the rich created the problem by preying on the poorer classes and then were bailed out from financial lost so they can continue with their overreaching. The bailout has certainly emboldened the moneyed class to carryout out even more activities to enslave the masses. These continue schemes are widening the gap between the rich and the poor. This gap is being fueled by covetousness on both sides, which is leading to the fulfillment of the Biblical predictions of dire financial times ahead. Here the Bible predicts a time when moral and spiritual corruption will be coupled with excessive luxurious lifestyle of the merchant class, which are enslaving the masses.
Revelation18:2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
18:3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earthare waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
Notice the next text states they trade in slaves and souls of men.
Revelation 18:13 And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.
And lastly, prediction of a coming crisis where all who are not part of their false system will be locked out of it and persecuted.
Revelation13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Why all this, so there are some context for some of the statements I will be making going forward. And yes, to repeat, “own, downsize and debt free”. Blessings.
