Pride Comes Before Destruction and an Arrogant Spirit Before a Fall

19 May

As the world spins out of control and people are losing hope, one thing is certain:  The King of kings is still on the throne and every knee must bow.  Pride comes before destruction, and an arrogant spirit before a fall.  The lies, deceit, arrogance, lawlessness, complete disregard for personal freedom, the demonizing of success from hard work, the disregard for the sanctity of life and the sanctity of marriage that is oozing from this presidential administration I believe will be their undoing.  People are starting to wake up to the lies.  This I believe is an answer to prayer as God PROMISES that, ” if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”  I’m not saying things are going to get better overnight–there are still consequences to our actions (we have amassed $17 trillion of CURRENT debt, and approximately $200 TRILLION in unfunded future obligations).  This is just FEDERAL debt.  What about municipal debt, corporate debt, personal debt, and then the debt of other nations, and the numbers are so BIG that the system WILL collapse.   There is no other outcome.  This is why I am so persistent on encouraging people to own gold and silver (ACQUIRE AS MUCH AS YOU CAN AS QUICKLY AS YOU CAN, and IF YOU ALREADY OWN IT, HOLD ON).  CALL ME PERSONALLY IF YOU WANT TO DISCUSS FURTHER (866-211-8986) or email me at KIRK@TODAYSAMERICA.COM

There are consequences to our actions (good and bad)–that is a universal law.  However, I still hold on to the promise that even though the world around us may shake and the foundations crumble that God will give us wisdom to navigate through this economic, political, and social minefield.  When we rely on God’s wisdom instead of man’s wisdom we can THRIVE, not just SURVIVE.  He created us to follow that blueprint for success and He told us how to do it.  God also told us that times would get worse and evil will proliferate.  But, there is no reason to fear the darkness as we are called to be light.  Even the dimmest of lights casts out darkness and perfect love casts out all fear.  WOW!  What a promise!!!!

So, how will it get worse?  The economy will collapse.  Our freedoms will be eroded.  It will become more difficult to be a Christian in this world.  But, when people humble themselves and pray and turn away from their wicked ways, we allow God to work in our lives individually, and the world begins to change.  We allow heaven to invade earth and person by person we can win this battle.     The pride and arrogance of our power loving leaders will be their downfall.  We are starting to see it now.  SO KEEP PRAYING.  KEEP EARNESTLY SEEKING WISDOM.  Do not be afraid to act.  Just do something.  Nothing good throughout the history of the world has ever happened from people doing nothing.  Be fully alert, engaged, pray, seek wisdom, make your voice heard, be a light in this dark world, and expect the miraculous to happen.  Jesus is still in the miracle working business!  Always has been and always will be.
