The Gathering in Jerusalem

Gathering in Jerusalem

 

It is now the second day of The Gathering. It is impossible to explain with words what I have experienced over the one and half days of the conference. Go to The Gathering website and connect to the conference ” live stream”. You will be blessed mightily – you will experience what worship will be like in heaven. It is also being videoed so you will be able to get a copy to bless your church.

The most amazing thing is the number of Chinese worshippers that are here from mainland China, at least 1500 hence the conference is being broadcast in English and Mandarin. Translation is available to many other languages as well.

God is acting in HIStory in His city and nation in a new and world transforming way. To see Israeli ¬†Jewish and Arab Christian pastors impacted by the presence and passionate ¬†worship of so many Asians was remarkable. They came on stage repenting of past sins and committing to unite to take the Gospel forward in a new way led only by the Holy Spirit. Only God is able to do what happened at this conference last night and this morning. I can’t wait to experience the worship again and to see what God will do with the rest of The Gathering.

You need to go online and experience it yourself.

Financial Crisis Inevitable – going to end badly say the experts

If this dialogue between two well known and respected financial experts doesn’t convince you we are in the Biblical end times nothing will.

Chris Martenson of Peak Prosperity interviews John Rubino author of two best sellers “The Crash of the Dollar” and “The Money Bubble”.

You need to listen to these two experts because they know that whilst the 2008 Economic Crisis was bad, the next one is going to be humungous. Why, because governments have allowed those that created the problem which was ‘out of control debt’ to try and fix it with more debt. People who should have been jailed are still there creating another big debt bubble which is then fixed with more debt. We see the smart architects of the problem get out and sound the warning of impending disaster. They caused the problem but now want to be seen as the voice of sanity. People like Greenspan write best selling books and still earn a fortune on the author circuit.

It can only end badly says John Rubino. “Debt is growing beyond all reason, it is going to end badly, it is beyond our control”.

Governments are already preparing for civil unrest and domestic terrorism. During the 2008 crisis the government was days away from instituting martial law. Well, the debt situation is exponentially larger with no fix possible because the complexity of the deregulated financial markets is such that even the experts can’t predict what will happen, let alone governments. They will have difficulty working out what happened and who was responsible even after the collapse. Listen to some of the descriptions: “Moral corruption in governments”, “Financial markets devolving into a branch of the Mafia”, “Sound money is a moral issue”, “Need to impose financial morality on governments”.

John Rubino suggests a good solution for each of us at the end of the interview. Get together with your local community and start preparing now for the inevitable.

As Christians we know what is coming and we know the ultimate solution – Jesus ruling and reigning on this earth. In the meantime we should be doing what He taught us to pray for “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven”. Let us play our part in bringing His Kingdom to bear in our sphere of influence. Let our church and our families be examples of what His Kingdom looks like.
