Here's a notion.
There are no puppetmasters. You are looking at a completely organic snowball event.
Tunisia protested, and - no doubt to the surprise of the Tunisians, it worked. Inspired by this, people in other autocratic regimes in the
Maghreb and middle east have started their own movements... With even more surprise victories. Egypt's revolution is succeeding. Gaddhafi is falling
like a brick. Bahrain is set to go to the people whether the US likes it or not.
These successes are witnessed by people in Ghana, and people in Cote d'Ivorie, people in China and North Korea. They see these uprisings working,
autocrats falling, and they tell themselves, "We can do that, too." So they do.
As more successes mount, more movements will rise around the world. It will spread like an epidemic - which, to those seated on the thrones, it
The situation is nearing critical mass; All it will take is another people's victory, and it'll start sweeping. Incidentally, an act of repression
will also spur it further at this point.
I used to laugh at the people who posted on here about a "new global awareness." I still chuckle at the new-agey stuff, but this... certainly looks
like a globe-changer to me.
The more I watch world events, the more I see that the world leaders have less and less control. They are indeed trying to manipulate things and are
doing so to a certain extent.
For example, the big financial crisis? It is very easy to solve. Get rid of interest rates. I was reading in my Bible the book of Nehemiah a couple
of weeks ago and the same thing was happening to the repatriated Jews. They were in the exact same problem and Nehemiah had the answer, please read
(Nehemiah 5:1-11) . . .However, there came to be a great outcry of the people and their wives against their Jewish brothers. 2 And there were those
who were saying: “Our sons and our daughters we are giving as security that we may get grain and eat and keep alive.” 3 And there were those who
were saying: “Our fields and our vineyards and our houses we are giving as security that we may get grain during the food shortage.” 4 And there
were those who were saying: “We have borrowed money for the king’s tribute on our fields and our vineyards. 5 And now our flesh is the same as
the flesh of our brothers; our sons are the same as their sons, but here we are reducing our sons and our daughters to slaves, and there are some of
our daughters already reduced; and there is no power in our hands while our fields and our vineyards belong to others.” 6 Now I became very angry
as soon as I heard their outcry and these words. 7 So my heart took consideration within me, and I began finding fault with the nobles and the deputy
rulers, and went on to say to them: “Usury is what YOU are exacting, each one from his own brother.” Further, I arranged a great assembly on their
account. 8 And I proceeded to say to them: “We ourselves have bought back our own Jewish brothers who were sold to the nations, as far as it was in
our power; and at the same time will YOU yourselves sell YOUR own brothers, and must they be sold to us?” At this they became speechless, and they
did not find a word. 9 And I went on to say: “The thing that YOU are doing is not good. Is it not in the fear of our God that YOU should walk
because of the reproach of the nations, our enemies? 10 And also I, my brothers and my attendants are giving money and grain on loan among them. Let
us, please, leave off this lending on interest. 11 Please, restore to them on this day their fields, their vineyards, their olive groves and their
houses, and the hundredth of the money and the grain, the new wine and the oil that YOU are exacting as interest from them.”
Please read the account. They were in the exact same boat as many nations are in right now. The poor can't get anywhere because the banks charge
them MORE interest than the rich. It makes no sense. If they simply stopped charging interest on things that were necessary the whole economic
system would be corrected. Well, at least that was true a few years ago, perhaps it has already passed the point of no return. But one thing is for
certain. They will not stop charging interest.
The national debt of the United States cannot even contain itself. I was reading a report that said if all of the wages of the United States were
taxed 100%, they are approaching a point that that won't even pay off the interest on the national debt.
This is insanity. Stop charing interest on the poor, let them live, borrow money for what they need, and let them pay it back without interest.
Including other counties that need it.
The people are too greedy to stop it though. The rich do indeed manipulate the system to oppressive people who are poor. But they are hardly in
control. They are helpless to what is now going on. God is in control. The things will now only manuever the way he allows them. The system of
things should have already torn apart but the angels are withholding the worldwide meltdown. They were charged:
(Revelation 7:1-3) After this I saw four angels standing upon the four corners of the earth, holding tight the four winds of the earth, that no wind
might blow upon the earth or upon the sea or upon any tree. 2 And I saw another angel ascending from the sunrising, having a seal of [the] living
God; and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, 3 saying: “Do not harm the earth or
the sea or the trees, until after we have sealed the slaves of our God in their foreheads.”
Yes, powerful spiritual forces are withholding the tearing apart of the fabric of society. No one needs to worry that it will happen before it is
time. But that time is quickly approaching. When the last of God's anointed on earth have been sealed (the last of the 144,000 who are chosen to
rule in heaven as kings) you WILL KNOW, for the four winds will be let loose.
And then we will be at the end. That time is quickly approaching:
