Keith’s Endtimes Update Nr. 2
In my last end Times letter. I spoke about the coming financial crisis. Since then,
Pres Obama in the USA has commenced its plans for financial reform. Although this
has not been received well by those who believe in small government. Stop as I indicated
in my last letter, Mrs Merkel's CDU lost the election is mostly due to the People's
opposition to Germany is always being the one expected to bail out the euro zone.
England's new coalition government has set off to a good start, but few have confidence
in its durability. So we have yet to see any real economic recovery. The result of
Next weeks interim budget may be interesting to Observe . The International economic
crisis continues and as yet, we do not know where it will lead. More about that later......
This week, I want to concentrate on what is going on in the world of nature and science.
Here again, I am not an expert. Just a keen observer since the beginning of the year.
We have seen earthquake is in Haiti, Chile, and China. We have seen landslides in
Brazil, and regardless of what scientists say about global warming, w in Europe have
experienced one of the coldest winters for many years, and the weather is only beginning
to warm up this weekend. In the past couple of weeks, we have had the oil disaster
in the Gulf of Mexico, from the United States, we have heard about the drying up
of the Ogallala aquifer, which irrigates most of the United States Great Plains region.
We could see the return of the 1930s “Great Dust Bowl”. Drought is becoming more
widespread. Then, alongside these disasters. We are becoming aware of just how many
honey bee colonies are under threat around the world. We have seen reports that between
30 and 40% of colonies died during the severe winter in Europe and America. Other
colonies have been attacked by a virulent virus, which kills whole colonies and is
spreading fast throughout Europe. We need honeybees to fertilize our crops, what
will happen if we do not have these to fertilize our crops or water to help them
grow. One of the horse men of the Apocalypse, described in the book of Revelation
brought with him famine, at an unimaginable level. Could we see that in our days?
In the past, we could trust our scientists point us in the right direction, but in
recent years. They have become politicized as a result of the climate change debate,
and some claim have produced false data in order to support their claims. Others
have become involved in genetic modification, in order to produce “super crops.”
In their politicization, many have become trapped into a sort of globalized view
of the world, which will only be answered by some sort of globalized world governments.
As was proposed by sound in last year's Copenhagen conference. It is interesting
to note that many propose as an answer for Europe's financial problems. A united
European government. How long will it be before somebody seriously proposes one World
government..... oh, I'm sorry. That's already happening both sides of the pond.
What should our response be to all of this craziness? Well, the Boy Scouts taught
us that we should always be prepared, and I think that is a good watchword.
For many years I have proposed that churches should buy food. Together, as buying
co-operatives, saving money for everybody, and being able to give food to the poor.
It would also help towards careful, stockpiling of essential foods. Last week I talked
to some people who were withdrawing Their investments in shares to rather invest
in land, where Christians could produce food together. I already know of house churches
that have invested in buying small pieces of forested land, where they can keep bees.
This produces an income for the group and helps the local farming economy. Let us
all cry out to God for creative and innovative ways to be good stewards of what he
has given us.
Next time, I will talk a bit about some of the problems inside the church and some
of the significant answers that exist from the church.
