There is No Fear of God in the Church Anymore

Do You Tremble at His Word?

“There is no fear of God before their eyes.” -Rom 3:18 (KJV)

Has your Christianity morphed into a drab, dull, disengaged, lethargic, and mundane activity that holds little value in your life? Is going to church become more of a scheduled task than a true worship experience with your Savior? Are you caught in a revolving door of complacent religiosity? Do you regard prayer and reading your Bible just too hard and tiresome to do? Has the Bible become just an ancient book that is just too hard to understand?

Friends, can I suggest to you that your Christian belief in Almighty God has grown stale and uninteresting. You are caught up in worldly things more that heavenly things. And you do not fear God anymore nor do you tremble at His word.

Many people are afraid of lightening and run and hide from the sound of the crackling thunder and awesome lightening streaks. Most are scared to death of an approaching tornado or hurricane for its force in nature can be destructive and devastating. As we have recently experienced with Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. But I dare say that many Christians do not fear the Lord whether out of reverent fear or just plain being scared with terrifying fear. 

“If you address as Father the One who impartially judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves in fear during the time of your stay on earth;” -1 Peter 1:17 (NASB)

The Creator God who established the heavens and created the land and oceans has almost no place in Christian churches or for that matter our own personal lives. Rom 3:18, above, paints a stinging and decisive indictment against those Christians (and unbeleivers) who do not fear an awesome, powerful and mighty God. How can this be? What has caused this to occur in the lives of us that have for decades called ourselves Christians?

Friends, there is a straight forward verse found in Proverbs that spells out what has happened to this watered-down, milquetoast religion called Christianity here in America and other parts of the world.

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.” -Prov 9:10 (KJV)

Did you read that correctly? Godly wisdom is one of the foundation building blocks of mankind and that must be established in God Almighty alone through fearing Him. (Fear – Strong’s H3374, yir’ah meaning fear, terror, respect, reverence, piety, revered). From this emanates understanding and knowledge and from these we are made aware of who God really is and why He sent His only begotten Son Jesus Christ to earth to save us. Without wisdom in the Holy, we are without direction, without purpose and have absolutely no realization of who Almighty God is. Hence the continuing collapse of this nation called America. And we are collapsing in almost every area of life. Can’t see it, just read the news, the real news. Hate, wars, killings, scandals, chaos and confusion are gaining tremendous traction both here and abroad. Why? No God in their midst. No professed God in the White House or our Congress. UK is the same. Europe has all but ejected God from their midst. Hence the invaders of evil have come in unrestricted and now their society as they once knew it is collapsing into wicked darkness.

Oh yeah, we have churches but most do not know God and He is not preached there either. They preach a diluted and socialized Gospel that does not offend nor challenge anyone’s faith. If they did we would have a different nation and people. There is an abundance of the form of Godliness on display but no power present since it is denied – 2 Tim 3:5. Expositional teaching but no God. Lots of show but no repentance. Heck, sin isn’t preached, and the consequence of unrepentance isn’t preached either and that means HELL! Many put on their best and are looking good when they enter their church but most don’t know the God they are there to honor. You see their lips move (sometimes) yet their hearts are far from Him – Matt 15:8, Isa 29:13.

“For My hand made all these things, Thus all these things came into being,” declares the Lord“But to this one I will look, To him who is humble and contrite of spirit, and who trembles at My word. -Isa 66:2 (NASB)

These are tough words to swallow and even harder to digest but nevertheless true. In your life, in your Christian walk, do you fear God? Do you revere Him as the Creator? Does terror strike your being when you think of the power He displays in nature? Do you read and study about Him through serious time in your Bible? I dare say without question that those who claim to be a Christian yet spend little time with the Lord in reading their Bible, in prayer, in seeking His face are just putting on the show or act of Christianity and there are millions of these kinds of people. (Do not forget the Lord’s words in Matt 22:14).

We cannot continue to ‘play’ Him as we may friends. We cannot continue to look good on the outside but are Godless on the inside – as whitewashed tombs – Matt 23:27. We must take heed from the Lord’s words to the seven churches of the Book of Revelation found in chapters 2 and 3. 

Spend some time and study what He said to these churches. They resemble our churches today and they represent our lives unequivocally. Examine that we serve a serious and no-kidding God and He will tell those that don’t know Him to depart from Him when they die – Matt 7:21-23. Can you even imagine yourself being a regular church-going Christian or even a pastor, being told by the Lord at the end of your life: “Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” (Matt 7:22-23).

Tday is the day to wake up from your slumber and pretending and get to know and fear (respect and revere) the God you worship. Cast off your false religion and playing being Christian. Quit looking like a Christian in front of your friends and family. Instead, live it, breathe it, talk about your faith, spread this Good News and read His word. Now’s the time, for without the fear of God you cannot know Him.

“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.” -Ecc 12:13 (KJV)

The Global Financial Crash – It’s Only a Matter of Time

Editor’s Note:  More bad financial news. The big question now is when will it finally crash? Stay tuned as it could be anytime. Friends, this one may be very bad so please, please, please ensure your life is right with Almighty God. If you are not born-again, bought by the blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross of Calvary then it’s time right now to seek His face, and call upon His name. He is the only way to the Father and the only way to enter His rest in heaven. No other name or religion, no other entity or god will save you. This is the Gospel Truth.

“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” -Acts 4:12 (KJV)

“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10- For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” -Rom 10:9-10 (KJV)

The Dow Falls 1,032 Points! Has The Financial Crisis Of 2018 Officially Arrived?

By Michael Snyder, on Feb 8, 2018

We haven’t seen this kind of a bloodbath on Wall Street since the great financial crisis of 2008.  Prior to this week, the largest single day decline for the Dow Jones industrial average that we had ever seen was 777 points.  That record was absolutely shattered on Monday when the Dow fell 1,175 points, and on Thursday the Dow dropped another 1,032 points.  This was the third decline greater than 500 points within the last five trading days, and the Dow is poised to post its worst week since the dark days of October 2008.  So is this just a “correction”, or has the financial crisis of 2018 officially arrived?

At this point, many of the experts are pointing to the bond market as the primary reason why stock prices are crashing.  The following comes from CNBC

There’s a not-so-quiet rebellion going on in the bond market, and it threatens to take 10-year yields above 3 percent much faster than expected just a few weeks ago.

As a result, the bumpy ride for stocks could continue for a while.

And without a doubt, analysts such as Jeff Gundlach clearly warned that there would be big trouble for stocks as bond yields rose…

Gundlach had correctly predicted that if the 10-year U.S. Treasury note yield went above 2.63 percent, U.S. stock investors would be spooked.

“Clearly, the market gets shaky when the 10-year hits 2.85 percent,” Gundlach said. “Just look at this week, and today. Makes one consider what could be coming if 10s push over 3 and 30s (30-year Treasury bond) over 3.22 percent.”

The 10-year yield is currently trading around 2.83 percent. Gundlach said it is “hard to love bonds at even a 3 percent” yield. “Rising interest rates are a problem and the U.S. is in debt and there is massive bond supply,” Gundlach said.

Moving forward, it will be important to keep a close eye on bond yields.  Every time they start going back up, we are likely to see stock prices go down

“We’re in a vicious cycle here. If the yields go up, you have to sell stocks. If you sell stocks, and they crash, yields come back down,” said Art Hogan, chief market strategist at B. Riley FBR.

The bond market’s struggle to price in higher interest rates has been kneecapped each time the stock market reacts and sells off. Strategists expect the two markets to ultimately find an equilibrium but not without more sharp swings.

This is one of the reasons why the budget deal going through Congress right now is such a bad idea.  Hundreds of billions of dollars of additional spending on top of what we are already doing is going to push up bond yields, and that is just going to make the pressure on Wall Street even worse.

A Terrible Global Economic Crash is Coming – A Prelude of the Black Horse of Rev 6

Editor’s Note: It will eventually crash and this time it will be global and absolutely terrible! This is prophesied with the download of the Black Horse (Rev 6) payload. This will come. The question is are you ready? Economies all over the world are in big trouble and a collapse in the US or any other big nation could cause the house of financial cards to crumble.

Bottom-line: Get ready, get prepared, get right with God while we still can find Him – Amos 8:11.

“Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.” -Luke 21:36 (KJV)

-1,175 Points! We Just Witnessed The Largest One Day Stock Market Crash Ever

By Michael Snyder, on Feb 5, 2018

The mainstream media seems so surprised that the stock market is crashing, but the truth is that it isn’t a surprise at all.  In fact, this crash is way, way overdue.  If the Dow Jones industrial average fell another 10,000 points, stock prices would still be overvalued.  I have been warning and warning and warning that this would happen, because stock valuations always return to their long-term averages eventually.  On Monday, the Dow was down a staggering 1,175 points, which was the largest single day decline that we have ever seen by a very wide margin.  In fact, it shattered the old record by nearly 400 points.

Shortly after 3 PM, all hell broke loose on Wall Street.  The Dow dropped by more than 800 points in just 10 minutes.  At one point on Monday, the Dow was down nearly 1,600 points, but a brief rally cut those losses roughly in half.  However, the rally did not last long and stock prices collapsed hard as the market closed.  At this moment, the Dow is already down more than 2,200 points from the peak of the market, and we are not too far from officially entering “correction” territory.

Once stocks start falling, it can trigger a massive rush for the exits, and that is what happened on Monday.  In particular, investors started to panic once the Dow broke through the 50-day moving average

“As soon as we broke the 50-day moving average … we saw volatility spike,” said Jeff Kilburg, CEO of KKM Financial. “It’s just been downhill from there.”

Other waves of selling were triggered once the 25,000 and 24,000 barriers on the Dow were breached.  In order to protect against losing too much money, many investors have stop losses set at psychologically-important levels.  The following comes from MarketWatch

Amplifying the slump was computer-programmed trade set to dump shares at certain levels. According to traders, the Dow DJIA, -4.60% was set to trigger trades once it fell below 25,000 and 24,000, for example, and 2,700 for the S&P 500.

Markets almost always go down faster than they go up, and once panic begins to spread on Wall Street it doesn’t take much to create a massive stampede.

In the end, this next financial crisis will be far worse than it should have been.  The Federal Reserve and other global central banks have endlessly manipulated the financial markets, and they created the biggest financial bubble in human history.

When an irrational financial bubble is growing, it can seem like things are wonderful.  But all such bubbles eventually burst, and the bursting of the bubble often does far more damage than the good that was accomplished by the manipulation of the markets.

So was there anything specific that caused the panic on Wall Street on Monday?

Yes, interest rates are rising, but as Bloomberg has noted, there wasn’t really anything noteworthy in the news that triggered the selling…

While Friday’s market rout came amid U.S. wage data on Friday that pointed to quickening inflation, which would lead to higher rates and, in turn, rising borrowing costs for companies, the selling Monday came amid few major data points.

“I think sentiment was a little too optimistic,” said Brad McMillan, chief investment officer for Commonwealth Financial Network. “What was driving the market up in January? It wasn’t the fundamentals, as good as they were, it was excessive confidence.”

Ultimately, time simply runs out on all irrational financial bubbles.  It is interesting to note that the Tulip price index began to crash on this exact date in 1637, and we may look back and point to February 5th as the key moment when the “financial crisis of 2018” started.
