Truly, says the Lord of Hosts, I have seen thousands, and even millions, of My precious people hurting in this MANMADE economic depression. This misery is going on not because My people bought one pair of shoes too many, but because of greedy bozos in business suits speculating (gambling) away money on Wall Street. Big Bankers dip into peopleís retirement funds and gamble away the life savings of millions of poor people, without a twinge of conscience. And when all hell breaks loose, the PEOPLE are forced to shell out to repay the bankers for the money the bankers lost! If you buy a lottery ticket at 7-11 and donít win, you lose your dollar. But you donít go pounding on the door of some bank demanding they pay YOU back, because it was your own fault for gambling in the first place. If you bet on the horses at the racetrack and lose your shirt you donít go to some bank demanding compensation for your personal loss. And yet youíre expected to cover all the banking systemís wagers and risks. The poor are forced to tighten their belts while greedy rich swine hog all the fine things of life, laughing all the way to the bank. It didnít escape My notice when a certain group of rich thieves publicly mocked the plight of people THEY had made homeless and put out on the street!
Many Christians think this is only an issue which concerns the world. But thatís all wrong. So long as you live AND WORK in this world to make a living, this problem also affects you and your precious families. So many of My children come to Me in tears, pleading to be restored to a job theyíve lost during this economic crisis. Others beg Me to help them feed and clothe their families.
Well, I certainly WILL take care of you! I feed even the little songbirds day in and day out, and they are blessedly free of having to worry about money or working for THE SYSTEM. I even feed the lowliest insects and provide homes for wild animals. Arenít My dear children worth infinitely more than wild birds and beasts?
I will certainly see to it that rich thieves who mock their poor victims are made homeless and dependent themselves, standing in bread lines and getting help from the Salvation Army. You reap what you sow. Laugh at your victim and youíll become a victim yourself! Big rich bigwigs shall fall with a loud thud onto the hard rock of My judgment. I will allow tumultuous events to unfold, but it wonít always happen in the favor of the rich thieves on Wall Street.
Some boasted that not even God could sink the Titanic, and thatís the attitude of these greedy capitalist bigwigs and bankers. They boast that their big moneymaking operation is so vast and powerful that theyíve already conquered the world and made virtual slaves out of the populace who must WORK till they drop to pay the taxes to cover the bankersí bad debts!
When arrogance and pride in human achievement and wealth caused certain ones to boast against the Lord, the door was opened for the devil to devise the sinking of the Titanic. It wasnít My will for all those poor people to suffer and die, but actions and words can carry negative repercussions in the spiritual realm. Satan seized the opportunity to do something about that boast so I would get the blame. Many hundreds of precious lives were lost, people who could have been saved and lived out longer lives to My glory.
Fat cats on Wall Street and unscrupulous financiers of this world boast in their wicked, darkened hearts that not even I can stop them from getting richer, richer, and richer at the expense of the poor and the helpless. But just like I knocked King Nebuchadnezzar off the throne of his glory, so I can do the same to financial tyrants who are enslaving and robbing My people. Times will get so bad for these evil men and women that they shall search for shelter out in the drippy, cold rain, lacking bread, clothing and shoes. I shall make their stinking money worthless and fit only for throwing into the fireplace as fuel. No longer will they be able to use their foul filthy lucre to buy friends, pervert the course of justice oor satisfy the lusts of their wicked flesh (Ezek.7:19). Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of My fierce wrath (Zeph.1:18).
Yes, the day of darkness is dawning upon this earth in this period before the Great Tribulation. But just like the Land of Goshen was a place of shelter in the storm, there will be a place of blessing and deliverance for all who put their trust in Me.
