THE THIRD SIGN: IT’S DÉJÀ VU ALL OVER AGAIN (2)
Since I began the research and writing of this series on Monday, some additional, possibly confirming news came forth the very next day, as did subsequent current events throughout the week. The overall theme of this series is, of course, the present American economy, the stock market crash of 2008, the rapid rise in the stock market this calendar year as the long Bull market continues, and what’s in store for us in the near future. It also involves a hidden economic pattern I discovered eight and a half years ago, something I referred to in Part 1 as “The Third Sign.”
I had the opening post, Economic Crash and Burn, ready to go on the evening of August 7, in which the number seven is featured prominently (did not plan that), but decided to wait until Wednesday, August 9 to post it. This was due in small part to the number nine, which plays a large role in this series. If you haven’t read Part 1 yet, I suggest you read it now before going further because it serves as an introduction and lays a groundwork of understanding for this and future posts.
Regarding the economic news of this week, you will remember from Part 1 that the previous Bull market reached a high peak in October of 2007 and then began a Bear market freefall which resulted in the crash of 2008 on September 29. But it didn’t stop there. It kept falling all the way into March of 2009 when it finally bottomed out. In a period of seventeen months, the Dow Jones plummeted like a rock from 14,164 to a market close of 6,547 on March 9, 2009, though it reportedly reached a trading low that day of approximately 6,440. This represented a drop of over 54% and a loss of trillions in value.
Since that time an eight-year Bull market has brought us to the highest peak ever which happened on Tuesday of this week when the Dow reached a stratospheric high of 22,179.11! (Those last three numbers don’t look so good.) But considering possible harbingers, guess what happened since? The Dow has lost 335 points as of closing on Thursday. This might not mean anything. For example, from March 1 to April 19 of this year the Dow lost almost 800 points but recovered. We’ll see what happens today, but there are increasing indications that the current Bull market may be ending.
FUTURE AGENDAS AND EXTINCTION EVENTS
There exists a cultural conviction that economic systems are inherently cyclical and can therefore serve as prognostications of future agendas or be taken advantage of toward personal gain. Though this may be true in some general abstract sense within limited parameters, it cannot be true specifically with regard to large complex systemic structures unless they are manipulated by insiders.
You may have noticed that the middle class is going extinct like an otherwise healthy and populous large dinosaur species previously ruling the prehistoric landscape. While the middle class shrinks into a new massive monetary facsimile of the La Brea Tar Pits, the guys at the very upper echelon in this country grow ever more rich and enriched, and are using their new ill-gotten wealth to gain ever more wealth by thoroughly manipulating the system to their advantage. This was never supposed to happen in America nor could it have, if Constitutional principles stayed in effect and the law stayed on the side of the people.
But We the People are no more. It is now We the Elite.
The only person now remaining who can do anything about this is the Lord Jesus (with a little help from His friends). There was a time in America when a relatively large section of the citizenry could do very well economically without the direct assistance of the Lord, proving that millions might have claimed some form of Christianity but in reality did whatever they wanted. Spiritual reality dictates that becoming a real Christian instantly makes one an enemy of the world, unregenerate mankind, and that guy with the horns and forked tail.
This being the case, one will soon be shut out, shut down, and beat down to varying degrees without the help of the Lord. Being that He overcame these evil forces and defeated them, it obviously stands to reason that He not only knows how to fight spiritual enemies and win spiritual wars but that He also wants to show His people how to as well. There is no victory for the real Christian otherwise.
But faux Christians existing outside the kingdom represent no real threat to the bad guys and find life curiously devoid of the kinds of spiritual attacks as represented in the New Covenant Scriptures. It always amazed me somewhat as a rookie Christian that the Lord couldn’t turn around without some religious nut attacking Him and accusing Him of some ludicrous charge or another. We see the same thing with the apostle Paul. He simply went about his business but was forever having crazy attacks from the nutjob faction perpetrated against him replete with false charges and rabid bloodlust. It was so obvious what was going on, in that such weird but ferocious assaults were happening out of thin air for no other sane reason. But unless one was in the kingdom and possessed spiritual eyes and ears in good working order one would be oblivious to the evil sources and would always think Paul and his fellow workers were somehow at fault and therefore must have been evil or compromised by sin, since their trouble-magnet status suggested they were bringing it on themselves.
WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?
Real Christians in America have been coming to the ever-increasingly clear conclusion that the only means of victory is a closer and Closer and CLOSER walk with the Lord Jesus, especially since a handful of super rich are taking everything over and putting their own, shall we say, non-Christian mark on all they advocate for and attempt to achieve. A few of them may actually think they are doing good work but are hopelessly deceived without the Lord and always end up gravitating further toward the devil’s desires until caught fast in his deceptive web. This means the enemy is growing ever-stronger since he has gained powerful new seemingly unending financial sources, and the things nominal Christians used to do to get by will no longer work the same way. Life for the real Christian is thus getting more challenging.
This is why we see an exact replica of this paradigm emerging within status quo Christianity in which the Christian elite at the top of the pyramid have given up the real fight and sold out to the faux construct in which they look like they’re making a giant impact with all their incredible resources but are actually fulfilling in a brand new method and manner the principle of “holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power” (2Timothy 3:5). In other words, with the culture being destroyed all around us and sin riding a shooting star exponential curve into outer space while official Christianity maintains great authority and immense resources, the latter is apparently having no real effect on the former.
“Therefore, salt is good; but if even salt has become tasteless, with what will it be seasoned? It is useless either for the soil or for the manure pile; it is thrown out. He who has ears to hear, let him hear.” [Luke 14:34-35] 
THE THIRD SIGN
The number nine is the Biblical number of finality or judgment.
As I mentioned in the previous post, there was a third major sign associated with the stock market crash of September 29, 2008. I discovered it only a few months later. There is a very clear Bear market pattern regarding the overall economy of the United States that had never occurred before it began several decades ago. Regarding other possible cyclical indicators as mentioned previously in this article, if they exist they are not so clear cut. The pattern I am revealing to you now is otherwise obvious and presents both a stark contrast to whatever happened before its onset and also reveals one of only two possibilities: It is either:
(1) The result of high-level human-orchestrated manipulation according to a long-term master plan, or
(2) A recurring pattern of economic judgment due to the increasingly great sins of the nation and one extremely vile sin in particular. This vile practice is now so culturally accepted only a small percentage of the population cares enough to even mention it, much less expose it and demand its outright elimination.
I will give you the details of this hidden pattern and what could be causing it in my next post. [To Be Continued.]
