Greetings and God Bless All,
Well by now I'm sure most of this world has seen and heard all the chaos with regards to the American Economy. Where do we go from here? We have all the politicians, government officials, economist, financiers, educated coming together to save themselves and their economy. They are going to use their human unregenerate worldly wisdom (which is foolishness to God) to legislate a so called "rescue plan". Financial calamity is indeed here, but in fairness to God we are all reaping what we have sowed. God is not mocked for we will reap what we have sowed, it's a spiritual principal that never fails. To the flesh corruption, to the spirit life eternal.
America and this world are not only economically bankrupt but most importantly they are SPIRITUALLY FAMISHED. This economic dereliction we are witnessing is just a manifestation of the spiritual dereliction of this nation and the world at large. The spiritual dictates the natural we need to remember this always. Even if they come up with a plan eventually it will fail also because everything that is not produced by God's spirit will perish. God has declared in the book of Revelation that BABYLON HAS FALLEN. Let's stop spinning our wheels already, as if we have a greater plan than the creator of the universe. People are so deceived. It's sad.
There is a FAMINE in this world , people. A spiritual famine of the true knowledge of God. THE REAL JESUS CHRIST.
Let's look at what I'm getting at in the book of (Genesis 47: 13 - 15) And there was NO BREAD in all the land: for the famine was very sore, so that the land of Egypt and ALL the land of Canaan FAINTED by reason of the famine.
And Joseph gathered up all the money that was found in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, for the corn which they bought: and Joseph brought the money into Pharaoh's house.
And WHEN MONEY FAILED IN THE LAND of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, all the Egyptians came unto Joseph, and said, GIVE US BREAD: for WHY SHOULD WE DIE in thy presence? FOR THE MONEY FAILETH.
I looked at this today as I sought to understand the current economic crisis in light of God's word and discovered some things about the current economic storm.
I am in no way attempting to spiritualize this, because it already has a spiritual message in itself.
The first thing mentioned here that we need to see is that there was a famine. A famine (Ra ab 07458) basically meaning hunger. There was no bread in all the land of Egypt and Canaan. This resulted in the people of these lands to FAINT or languish. Famine is a manifestation of God's judgment in the land , that there is something seriously wrong in the spirit of that land. This land could be a nation, a single individual or a family.
(Revelation 18:8) Therefore shall all her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and FAMINE; . . . . . for strong is the Lord God that JUDGETH her. When God is not pleased with a nation He will break their staff of bread which they relied upon. (Psalm 105:16) Moreover he called for a famine upon the land: HE BRAKE THE WHOLE STAFF OF BREAD. It's a time of humbling the flesh. For people to consider their ways.
The word also says that their was NO BREAD in all the land. I submit this to you that there is NO BREAD in the land of heathen (haters of Jesus Christ) nations. The nations of this world are fainting and languishing, failing because they don't have the bread of life. The nations are proud because they have an economy, but an economy without God is destined to FALL either now or later.
Jesus said in (John 6:48) I AM THE BREAD OF LIFE. In (John 6:35) He said I am the bread of life: HE THAT COMETH TO ME SHALL NEVER HUNGER; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. In verse 33 For the BREAD OF GOD IS HE WHICH COMETH DOWN FROM HEAVEN, and GIVETH LIFE UNTO THE WORLD.
For too long mankind kind has lived on natural bread with no regard for spiritual bread, natural worldly wisdom, intellect and human will plus various economic systems contrived by the same. We keep experiencing troubles because we are eating the wrong bread. Jesus said that man should not live by bread alone, but by every word which proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
The way to life is by God's word. We need to learn a lesson from this crisis even if it is not the end yet. We all need a higher dimension of life a heavenly and in feeding on the Bread of heaven we will reach this higher heavenly life. So when the end does come we will be above the natural realm reigning with Christ in life because we have fed on him and have been transformed to his likeness. This life cannot be purchased with money it was purchased by pure blood.
Let's continue looking at the famine. When their is no bread in the land and the people faint and are tossed about it's because there is a lack of "Joseph's" in the land. Joseph feared God while everyone else was caught up in the Egypt and Canaan lifestyles. He demonstrated his reverance toward God by eating the shewbread of God and coming away with the wisdom to know what to do.
Now when THE MONEY FAILED IN THE LAND OF EGYPT AND CANAAN the scriptures said that ALL the Egyptians came to Joseph and asked him for something. We need to look at this closely because they did not ask for money to meet their need for the money was worthless, it had failed and most importantly money could not meet the real need at hand which was to give life, so they asked for BREAD. They asked GIVE US BREAD for WHY SHOULD WE DIE. In (John 6:34) they asked Jesus then they said unto him, LORD, EVERMORE GIVE US THIS BREAD.
If our money has failed than let me say that it has failed so we would see that money cannot minister the life we need which is only in the bread of life JESUS CHRIST. Let say Evermore GIVE US THIS BREAD JESUS.
How did we get here well I believe if we go to the first part (1 Timothy 6:10) we will see a very important fact. FOR THE LOVE OF MONEY IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
Obviously this is a warning to the saints of God, they were warned to stay clear of the love of money, not money itself, but the LOVE of it. The leaders of this world surely have built an economy based on ungodly principals and their greed for money. This country it's Presidents, cabinet leaders, government officials, senators, congressmen and women have been playing a deadly game with the devil too long and all of you sadly will pay for your iniquities. Leaders should be people of integrity, disciplined, honorable, God fearing people who should look after the welfare of their people not their own.
The leaders of this country and world have sold themselves and their countries out for the love of money. I don't feel pity for any of these grown people, as an American citizen my allegiance is to Jesus Christ and His everlasting Kingdom. JESUS is the KING OF KINGS and every knee WILL BOW TO HIM and confess to Him. This country is on a 200 plus year coma to remotely think that any man or woman can lead us anywhere. The folly of this unjust economic system is shamefully open for all to see. How can blind leaders lead the blind. No wonder people are falling into the ditch.
Go to (Proverbs 1:20 - 27) If we are awake we can learn something here that perhaps will change our mentality and course of life.
Wisdom CRIETH WITHOUT; she uttereth her VOICE in the STREETS:
She CRIETH in THE CHIEF PLACE of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the CITY she uttereth her WORDS, saying,
HOW LONG, YE SIMPLE ONES, will love simplicity? and the SCORNERS delight in their scorning , and FOOLS HATE KNOWLEDGE?
TURN YOU AT MY REPROOF: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known MY WORDS unto you.
Because I have called , and YE REFUSED; I HAVE STRETCHED OUT MY HAND, and NO MAN REGARDED;
But ye have set at NOUGHT ALL MY COUNSEL, and would NONE OF MY REPROOF:
I also will laugh AT YOUR CALAMITY; I will mock when your FEAR COMETH;
When YOUR FEAR cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a WHIRLWIND; when DISTRESS and ANGUISH COMETH UPON YOU.
God's word is always current and alive. God is saying that His wisdom was crying out in the streets, in the chief places, in the openings of the gates, in the city. In other words the wisdom of His word was reaching out to all segments of society sinner(Without) and church (the City).
He asks us How long? will the simple minded people of this world continue to love simplicity and hate the knowledge of God. Simple minded or naive people scorn all the things of God to their own destruction. God said to TURN at his correction. He has called all nations to repent but humanity and nations as a whole have REFUSED. He has stretched out his helping hand and NO MAN has taken heed. The Lord has said that the NATIONS has set as nothing His counsel and wanted nothing to do with His reproof.
The severe consequences for this is God will do the same to nations that have refused, ignored, disregarded His counsel and correction. He will laugh at their calamity's and will mock when the fear starts to swarm the soul. When nations and their governments refuse to heed God then at some point fear will eventually follow. God will not always strive with flesh.
If we look closely at verse 27 this brings out clearly what will happen and is now happening to many, the outcome of refusing to take heed to God's wisdom, word, counsel and voice. Fear will come as DESOLATION, DESTRUCTION as a WHIRLWIND, DISTRESS and ANGUISH upon every soul that ignore God.
As we look at the landscape of this country and world there are just so many people hurting. God's spirit is available to help us because his spirit is OMNIPRESENT. God is everywhere at the same time but he will not force himself on any soul that is bent on rejecting him. Beloved we have got to seek God for these people. We need more Josephs in the church who will stay with God even when they themselves have been unjustly treated by brothers and allow God to have his way. Souls are very important to God for once a soul has left this Earth their fate has been set forever.
The gentile nations economy may fail but the kingdom of God's economy will last forever. May God bless you during these times.

2 Chronicles 7:14
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.
