We know that the economy will fail. “When He (Jesus) opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come and see. So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.” (Rev. 6:7-8) And it is going to be much worse than 2008.
This will happen as a result of natural disasters and much war spoken of by Jesus, as signs to occur before His return. (Mt.24:7-29; Lk21:9-26; and Mk.13:7-29) There is no doubt what is to come, as our loving Lord gives us many signs.
So what do we do about it? Be Prepared! Get at least three months of emergency supplies together and if you are able, get off the grid and use solar power. This is a good beginning. May Jesus help you.
