Economists are starting to see what prophetic insights have been warning about, the coming exhaustion of our government’s ability to fix our problems.
In June 2017, John Fenn, founder of Church Without Walls International, received the following warning from God about an economic collapse coming by September 2018 that would be far worse than the 2008 collapse of the housing market because the American people and especially investors would lose confidence in our government’s ability to fix our problems.
“If the Congress does not make right decisions in accordance with what they should be doing, the investors will lose faith in their ability to enact policies and there will be an economic collapse similar to 2008, but larger in scope because the one in 2008 was just bad policy and failing companies, but this involves the president and the Congress and a lack of confidence in the ability of the Congress to get his agenda through. The effect will be worldwide.” (see the complete post)
Congress making the “right decisions in accordance with what they should be doing” leaves a lot of room for interpretation, but I believe it refers to what our founders originally designed our government to be. They sought to limit the power and scope of the federal government in hopes of avoiding the tyranny they experienced in Europe. They wanted to avoid what we have today, a federal government that fixes everything for everyone with massive agencies meeting every need, solving every problem, and even paying for our basic necessities.
When natural disasters strike, America no longer cries out to God for help or considers our own responsibility to mobilize relief efforts because we expect and even demand prompt and total relief from our government. We have morphed from one nation under God to one nation under Washington DC, but God is now using natural disasters to expose the shortcomings of our new god as our problems are growing too big for our government to fix.
Although much of the Church remains blind to what is happening, secular economists are starting to see where this is going, as reported by Politico today:
“After years of austerity politics, it’s not clear that the government is adequately staffed or prepared to address the catastrophe on the Gulf Coast and whatever happens in Florida,” said Joe Brusuelas, chief economist at RSM US, a consultancy. “Priorities need to be set.”
Harvey and Irma could be a breaking point. At $556 billion, the Houston metropolitan area’s economy is bigger than Sweden’s. New Jersey could easily fit inside the region’s sprawling footprint, where Harvey dumped 34 trillion gallons of water, as much as the three costliest floods in Texas history combined. The Harvey response alone eventually could double the $136 billion in government aid spent after Hurricane Katrina flooded New Orleans.
And as of Friday, an estimated $1.73 trillion worth of real estate was in the path of Irma’s hurricane-force winds, according to the University of Wisconsin’s Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies.
Even if the federal government opens its wallet, it’s not evident it has the long-term capacity for multiple mobilizations. On Friday, as President Donald Trump signed a bill approving more than $15 billion in storm aid, Hurricane Jose churned off the coast of Puerto Rico. In the West, wildfires blazed in Oregon, Washington, Montana and California. (Source: Politico)
America has lost sight of the God of our fathers, but the good news is He has not lost sight of us. He remains faithful to His promises to everyone who walks uprightly. No matter what storms come against us, Yahweh has promised to hear the cries of the righteous and deliver them out of all their troubles (Psalm 34:17, 34:19). He will make a way of escape for those who take refuge in Him (Psalm 37:40). When the whirlwind passes, the wicked are no more, but the righteous have an everlasting foundation (Proverbs 10:25).
