The government shutdown and the debt ceiling

One crisis after another, when does it all end?  Where are we in the process of time?  “Thus saith the Lord GOD; An evil, an only evil, behold, is come. An end is come, the end is come: it watcheth for thee; behold, it is come. The morning is come unto thee, O thou that dwellest in the land: the time is come, the day of trouble is near, and not the sounding again of the mountains. (Ezekiel 7:5-7)

Whether or not an agreement is reached before the “debt ceiling” deadline, or whether or not the government reopens, it does not change the fact that the entire world is in agitation, and is “on the verge of a stupendous crisis”.  We are moving from crisis to crisis and even living within multiple crises.

We are standing upon the threshold of great and solemn events. Prophecies are fulfilling. Strange, eventful history is being recorded in the books of heaven. Everything in our world is in agitation. … Events are changing to bring about the day of God which hasteth greatly. Only a moment of time, as it were, yet remains. ” Testimonies for the Church 6:14. {ChS 51.5}

The Chinese government that has invested heavily in the US government bonds, are expressing concerns over the “government shutdown” and the”debt ceiling” and they are calling for a “new world order

“As U.S. politicians of both political parties are still shuffling back and forth between the White House and the Capitol Hill without striking a viable deal to bring normality to the body politic they brag about, it is perhaps a good time for the befuddled world to start considering building a de-Americanized world,” said Xinhua.

China has more than a passing interest in a possible U.S. default; it is by far the biggest holder of American debt, some $1.28 trillion.

Xinhua also editorialized: “Days when the destinies of others are in the hands of a hypocritical nation have to be terminated, and a new world order should be put in place, according to which all nations, big or small, poor or rich, can have their key interests respected and protected on an equal footing.” USA TODAY

Neither the US government, nor any other government in the world has the answer for the perplexities that we face today, the answer to all of man’s perplexity can be found in the word of God.

There are not many, even among educators and statesmen, who comprehend the causes that underlie the present state of society. Those who hold the reins of government are not able to solve the problem of moral corruption, poverty, pauperism, and increasing crime. They are struggling in vain to place business operations on a more secure basis. If men would give more heed to the teaching of God’s word, they would find a solution of the problems that perplex them.” {9T 13.3}

What is all these crisis leading to, “the mark of the beast”, “the Sunday Law”

  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: 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. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. (Revelation 13:16-17)

prepare to meet thy God, O Israel. (Amos 4:12)

  1. Obama was born in Hawaii. Doesn’t really matetr if his Kenyan father was around for the birth or not. By current law he is a US citizen. People who question this make themselves look foolish or worse.Likewise, it is wrong to blame Obama for the meltdown of the US economy and for our soaring national debt. George W Bush and his party drove the US economy over a cliff before Obama was ever elected. Ronald Reagan very nearly bankrupted the country during the 1980s. Republicans are to blame for this mess. They love to spend trillions of dollars on unnecessary wars and a bloated imperial military. They all believe in Republican Big Government, but unlike Democrats, they want to put it all on the government’s credit card. Republicans spend like crazy but then cut taxes to corporations and the wealthy. They cut off government revenue and thus create these huge budget deficits. And they refuse any talk about restoring taxes to a responsible level that would end the deficits so they are not serious about cutting deficits or paying off the national debt. They want to use the debt as an excuse to end Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Medicaid needs to be reformed and greatly trimmed back. But Social Security and Medicare are vital programs that are supported by payroll taxes. There is no reason to end them. So if the choice is to have a black president and keep Social Security and Medicare, or to have a white Republican president and end these programs, I will vote for Obama just like I did in 2008. I don’t want to have to go off and die under a bridge when I get old.

    1. On this website we are not discrediting President Obama’s place of place of birth or citizenship. This is not the purpose of this site. We have great respect for all our leaders, God set them up and take them down. Our purpose is to spread the good news of the soon coming of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ. And to prepare a people to stand, to educate the world about the plan redemption.
