I want to talk to you today about Economy, Middle East and Preparation.
You need to:
Know where you're at ...
When the temporary stock market meltdown happened August 24th and 25th, people started to wake up. One man emailed me to say he had agreed with me and sold ALL his stocks before the big loss. God only knows how much money he saved! Reference the following podcasts:
Not long after my podcasts warning about economic collapse, 2.1 Trillion was deleted in US stocks in 6 days. (That's trillion with a capital “T.”)
I want to help you by providing a panoramic view of what is really happening NOW. Most of the pundits on investment shows are only addressing the issue from their viewpoint as financial analysts. However, we are in a different economy NOW. I want to give you an overview from a non-specific―but all encompassing―spectrum including marketing, finance, economic and geopolitical underpinnings.
I am NOT a financial advisor; however, I started investing at the age of 20 while in college. Later, I became a day trader in both securities and commodities. I also sold precious metals for a while (gold, silver, platinum and palladium.) Through my years of experience I have learned one thing that stands out: there are cycles!!! This is WHY I invest in God's Work!!!
If you own stocks, dump the stocks that are NOT performing.
If you are a follower of Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah of Israel, you have a right―and an obligation―to know what is happening. My temporary assignment from God is to help you in this regard so that you can plan effectively … and be a good steward. God wants YOU to be protected … and to profit. I am going to share with you key things that are influencing the economy, but at the same time from a prophetic underpinning. “Surely the LORD God does nothing unless He reveals His secret to his servants the prophets.” (Amos 3:7)
Key financial and market decisions in China are all controlled by a central agency (AKA: the Communist Party). By the way, consult my webpage, Sino Asian Emergence, and you will see that there is a Global Elite (not only in China, of course) and that 83 members of the Chinese Communist National People's Congress (NPC) are Billionaires (that's billionaire with a capital “B”).
Of the 18 Tirllion USA debt (mostly chalked up by the Obama government), China probably owns half of it. They are just now beginning to dump their Treasury notes to re-route their holdings in US Dollars. China's products are cheaper than ours. Why would you buy a USA product if you can get it for 50% less (or more) made in China?
China has been drawing up the raw materials in the world. China used LOTS of commodities to build “ghost towns” and “bridges to nowhere.” Search online for “China Housing Bubble” or “China Ghost Towns” and you will see proof of the largest housing bubble in history. Empty projects―even empty cities! China's glut of commodity usage has helped some USA labor forces; however, it works in reverse with a “thud” in economic downturn. Like her shrinking copper appetite is killing US jobs. Copper is a KEY indicator of global growth.
China built her way up (through cheap goods from cheap labor―lots of labor supplied by Christians in prison for sharing the Gospel) to the second largest economy in the world only to NOW becoming an emerging market (temporarily) in decline. China―to protect itself―recently devalued its currency several times in order to sell more products with cheaper money. Watch and see that others countries will probably follow suit.
In the past, China has NOT had a very large influence (even though its economy has grown to second largest in the world) in the IMF (International Monetary Fund). They are NOT happy with this (being controlled by USA and Europe) and have developed their own clone of the IMF in the AIIB (Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank). This is actually a “false” move on the part of China to draw attention to her economic stature, and as a “threat” to give her leverage for consideration as a member of the IMF. What China really wants is to be part of the IMF's “SDR” (Special Drawing Rights) basket of currencies with the Yuan being part of it.
Today the SDR basket consists of the Euro, Japanese Yen, British Pound Sterling, and U.S. Dollar. The value of the SDR in terms of the U.S. dollar is determined daily and posted on the IMF’s website. It is calculated as the sum of specific amounts of the four basket currencies valued in U.S. dollars, on the basis of exchange rates quoted at noon each day in the London market.
In 1973, President Nixon and Henry Kissinger cut a deal with Saudi Arabia. We (the USA) promised military protection for the Saudi's oil fields. In later years, also, this was especially beneficial as when Iraq burned oil fields in Kuwait. As a concession, the Saudis agreed to price its future oil sales in US Dollars only. As a BONUS, the Saudis invested their profits into U.S. Treasurys. It was a three way win, as follows:
The Saudis provided LOTS of oil to USA (their favorite customer);
The USA protected Saudi Arabia; and,
The Saudis “shored up” the US Dollar which had come off the gold standard two years earlier.
By 1975, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Venezuela, Qatar, Indonesia, Libya, United Arab Emirates, Algeria, Nigeria and Ecuador―all the OPEC members―had agreed to the USA “PetroDollar” arrangement. This had a threefold effect:
Producing demand for the US Dollar;
Raising the value of the US Dollar; and,
Provided opportunity for governments and individuals to invest their US Dollars into US Treasuries and earn interest (instead of letting their US Dollars sit idle).
But wait … in the early 2,000's―through “fracking” technology developments―the USA was able to produce oil much more cheaply and efficiently. Shale oil production and natural gas reserves inscreased in volume over 100% and 50%, respectively, from 2007 to 2013.
In 2013, the USA overtook Russia as the world's leading oil producer … and in 2014 the USA overtook Saudi Arabia as the world's largest producer of crude oil. Russia and Saudi Arabia suffered BIG LOSSES in the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The value of the Russian Ruble has dropped 50% and its stockmarket is down one-third since 2011.
USA oil imports from Saudi Arabia fell off more than one-third during a four month period in 2014 alone. Lots of the force causing low oil prices was also manipulated by Saudi Arabia (it was NOT market driven) to drive the USA “frackers” out of business. The Saudis have plenty of money and can hold on for longer.
October Crude Oil closed on the NYMEX today (Friday, August 28th) at $45.33 (it had been down to $37.75 on Monday, August 24th, a 52 week low. There is a “hidden” danger here, though, for USA “frackers as this price is low enough to put lots of “frackers” out of business. Many are selling off equipment for 10 cents on the dollar. But … good news is that NEW “frackers” whose costs of development may be as low as $20 per barrel will be able to survive. This is BAD NEWS for Saudi Arabia.
The Russians and the Saudis are MAD. They want to end the USA PetroDollar and cut off the USA. China wants to work with Russia, also. China is NOW the biggest importer of Saudi crude oil.
Even Canada has recently signed a currency aggreement with China where they will do business directly between the Canadian dollar and the Chinese Yuan.
PRINCE HANDLEY PROPHETIC POSTULATE #1
King Salman, the new leader in Saudi Arabia, will align Saudi Arabia with China and Russia―plus Brazil, Venezuela and India―to commence trading oil separately from the US Dollar. It will be the emergence―away from the PetroDollar [USA]―to the PetroYuan [Chinese]. This will bring to an end to 50 years of [USA] PetroDollar trade control. The enemies of the USA have wanted this control to stop for a long time.
President Obama's recent deal with Iran was (IMO) the most foolish act of foreign diplomacy ever “sealed” by the USA. It financed global terrorism―and that to one of our chief enemies. It also was a BAD geopolitical decision. The rift between Sunni Muslims and Shia Muslims (to which Iran aligns) has been ongoing since the death of Muhamed. The fact that 85 percent of Muslims subscribe to, or align with, the Sunni sect instantly places Obama―and the USA―at even more odds with the majority of Islamic nations and people.
Plus, nations like Saudi Arabia that have been ourfriends—not to mention Israel―in alignment against Iran and its sponsorship of the Hizballah―and other―terrorist groups feel betrayed by the USA. In the past, the government of the USA issued a statement: “Iran has been the country that has been in many ways a kind of central banker for terrorism in important regions like Lebanon through Hezbollah in the Middle East, (and) in the Palestinian Territories.” So … what's wrong with this picture of Obama helping Iran produce nukes PLUS giving her money (releasing sanctions) to finance terrorism against us!
This is another reason WHY Saudi Arabia (not to mention Jordan and Israel) is ready to cast off from its mooring of trust with the USA … at least with the present administration.
In the Holy Bible all direction is from Jerusalem. So … nations to the East are categorically included in the phrase “Kings of the East.” China and any of her future partners in alignment (like the Koreas, Japan, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran and other Middle East countries) may all be included in the category: “Kings Of the East.”
“Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from the east might be prepared.” (Revelation 16:12)
This faction will be a military―and economic―force in the last days and will be drawn into battle during Armageddon against Jerusalem. The reason I mention this is that it will undoubtedly take them several years to form this consortium. However, only seven (7) years will be covered in the Tribulation period (the 70th Week of Daniel). Therefore, it is reasonable to assume that sometime between the entrance to the End Times (which we are in NOW) and the start of the Tribulation, this amalgamation will start to coalesce.
The New Silk Road and Great Marine Belt Initiative are giant infrastructure spending projects by China that will finally make sense (not the “ghost towns” and “bridges to nowhere”). They are designed to benefit ALL of Asia. The Silk Road is a program to finance and build trade and transportation ports and railways across Asia. They will link Asia together with China at the hub. China has NOW over three trillion USA Dollars in currency reserves … plus it is the world's largest gold producer.
One thing that is clear is that the Kings of the East will NOT be part of the ten (10) regional leaders who align with the anti-Christ (the false Messiah). We know this from the following passage:
“The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast.“ (Revelation 17:12)
When John was writing under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit as the Revelation was revealed by Jesus Christ, these ten regional leaders (kings)―or their kingdoms―had NOT existed at or by the time John wrote. However, China, India and Iran (Persia) had.
The Kings of the East may be a geopolitical force in opposition to the ten Regional Leaders who align with anti-Christ in the last days. (Even though both factions will be enemies of Israel.) In summary, we see a great geopolitical combine that will be separate from the USA and the West.
PRINCE HANDLEY PROPHETIC POSTULATE #2
The Kings of the East will NOT be part of the Ten Regional Leaders who are aligned with the False Messiah (anti-Christ = The Beast). They may be in economic opposition to his strategy. They will be a geopolitical entity separate from the USA and the West.
The dollar wars have about taken their course. The USA will be the loser in this round. Only a divine MIRACLE will save the USA, and that will be dependent upon IF she decides to align herself with―and support―Israel.
Today, a leading cable network had this headline in their “Money” section: “Mom and pop investors are dumping their investments and moving to cash at levels not seen since the financial crisis of 2008.”
PRINCE HANDLEY PROPHETIC POSTULATE #3
WARNING: The next subprime debacle in the USA will be in the sector of new automobile financing. It will not have the dollar volume as the housing industry, but will result in many defaults. Do NOT take out a loan for over 36 months.
In my podcast teaching June 30th, 2015, “Roots of Economic Collapse,” I gave suggestions as to what to do in this economy. If you have not read the shownotes of the podcast―or, if you have NOT done what I suggested―go back and read. I have provided suggestions for BOTH inflation AND deflation.
SUGGESTION: Read prayerfully Ecclesiastes Chapter 11.
Cast your bread upon the waters,
He who observes the wind will not sow,
I used to visit my grandfather and my uncle on their farm. They sowed no matter what the weather looked like … and they always reaped nice abundant crops! My advice to YOU in the coming economic collapse is: “In the morning sow your seed, and in the evening do not withhold your hand; for you do not know which will prosper, either this or that, or whether both alike will be good.”(Verse 6)
PRINCE HANDLEY PROPHETIC POSTULATE #4
SOW INTO GOD'S WORK FOR ECONOMIC MIRACLES
ABOVE YOUR TITHE AND OUT OF YOUR HEART
IF YOU DON'T HAVE MONEY, THEN PLEDGE
GOD WILL HELP BRING YOU MIRACLES
One way to evangelize is by working with God ... helping reach people with the Good News!
A TAX DEDUCTIBLE RECEIPT WILL BE SENT TO YOU
My friend, let me ask you the most imporant question of your life: If you were to die right now, do you know for sure that you would go to Heaven? If not, pray this prayer:
“God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, if Jesus is really my Messiah, please reveal Him to me and I will serve You the rest of my life. Please forgive my sins. Help me to live for you the rest of my time on earth, and take me to Heaven when I die. Amen.”
Baruch haba b’Shem Adonai.
