Preparedness: Discerning the Times

I've always thought in terms of preparedness with an eye toward total economic and social collapse. I've also thought that to embrace the idea of the end of the world as we know it (TEOTWAWKI) has an implicit bright side: any lesser disaster will be good news. Lately, though, I'm not so sure.

Before I explain, look at the conclusion to a recent essay by Christian economist & historian Gary North:

We will see a continual erosion of productivity. The banks will refuse to lend. The government will continue to absorb $1.3 trillion a year of capital. The public does not care. It senses that this cannot go on, but it has gone on so long that politicians can always kick the can. So, this is what they do. Nobody loses his seat in Congress because of this.

Erosion, not collapse, is in our future. But this erosion at some point will start increasing much faster than Keynesians expect. This will be our "Greek moment." ("Collapse, No. Huge Losses, Guaranteed")

In another place, Dr. North has said that the dissolution of our economy will not take place in weeks or months, but over a space of years. He likened it to falling down a flight of stairs in slow motion.

Actually, this process has already begun. The U.S.A. is slowly turning into a third world country, socially and economically.

Bump . . . bump . . . bump . . . down the stairs.

At the same time, the American people have watched their political system take a slow-mo fall downstairs alongside the economy. Only recently has the pace toward turning the nation into the political equivalent of a banana republic started to accelerate.

The good news is that everything will probably not crash overnight. The bad news is that totalitarian political control will outpace the slow descent into universal poverty.

Physical preparedness for hard times is prudent. Spiritual/moral preparedness is mandatory.

Electing the best man in 2012 will not turn the process around, much less opting for the lesser-of-two-evils-so-called. The only glimmer of hope lies in total repentance by God's people -- they . . . WE must stop playing church and fully embrace God's program for world transformation (click here).
