The Great Inflation Scam

The US government has told the American people that we don’t need to worry about inflation getting out of control. Despite recent high inflation numbers, Fed and Treasury officials have stated that they believe the uptick number is related to the Covid-19 virus, and they will decline once the supply change fully comes back on line.

They said the current inflation is “transitory,” meaning prices will plunge once things return to normal. There are several reasons that conflict with this transitory argument. The nation’s money supply has been increasing by a massive amount. Of all the currency in circulation, 40% was printed in the last year.

Employers are at a huge disadvantage when it comes to wage growth. Baby boomers are retiring in droves, and they are not being replaced by enough Generation Z workers entering the workforce. As the US population ages and an increasing proportion of the workforce retires, companies are likely going to be hard-pressed to find new workers. According to Oxford Economics, an estimated two million workers have retired since the beginning of the pandemic, representing a retirement rate that is roughly double that of 2019.

There are several economists who believe we are not going to see higher inflation because the Fed has isolated all the new money that was recently printed, and they point to the decrease in the velocity of money. Some of these economists warn that we actually face the danger of deflation where the price of things will decline.

The monetary system is very complex, and it’s hard to understand what all these big numbers mean. Because they have a direct impact on all Americans, it is important to have a basic understanding of macro-economics. I watched a video by John Titus, and I think he cut right to the heart of the financial matter by describing what the Fed is actually doing.

The Fed’s current balance sheet is at $8.5 trillion; in 2008, it was only at $900 billion. At the current rate, it buys about $140 billion in bonds each month. The Fed has several other programs that purchase trillions of dollars in other securities.

We are told not to worry about the Fed’s massive purchases of the national debt because when things calm down, the Fed is going to sell all these assets. It is pure insanity to think that the Feb can just go to the market and put $8 trillion of bonds up for sale and expect a buyer to emerge.

Anyone who holds US government debt, in my view, is a sucker for heavy losses. The current inflation rate is about 6 percent. The best rate you can get is the 30-year bond, which pays 1.96%. Anyone holding these bonds is losing 4 percent each year or their purchasing power.

Fund managers turn to US debt because they see it as a financial safe haven. Because the government can never go into bankruptcy, people see the bonds as a secure location for funds. The problem with the dollar is that it is managed by an organization that has the ability to print an unlimited amount of money. If it wanted to create a quadrillion dollars in currency, it could be easily done with the pressing of a keyboard.

For a long time, it was not possible for the Feb to inject money directly into the general economy. Only a select number of banks had accounts with the Fed. These member banks could not transfer reserve assets to non-member banks.

The Fed has been very inventive in the last few years, and it found a way to give money to non-member financial organizations. If a trust fund has $10 billion in bonds that it wants to sell, the Fed will create an account at one of its member banks for that same amount. The Fed will credit the bank $10 billion, which allows it to buy the $10 billion in bonds.

One indication that money is leaking into the general economy is the fact that we have 5 companies with a market cap of over a trillion dollars. There is clearly something wrong with our financial system when you have Tesla reach a level where is it is more valuable than all other auto companies on planet Earth.

This is a very dangerous and shocking change in the operation of our central bank. When a nation reaches the stage where it is printing money and pumping it directly into the economy, financial disaster is always the outcome. I advise all readers to take out any money you may have in bonds or a money market fund. I’m obviously not a financial advisor, but I think a precious metals fund would be a far better investment.

I’m not all that fearful of hyper-inflation because I think the rapture will occur before things get out of control. The economy has remained strangely stable for about 20 years, which is a record that defies 3,000 years of financial history. Time and time again, Bible prophecy is the only explanation I can come up with for this think-not mentality.

“Therefore be ye ready: for in such an hour that you think not the Son of man cometh” (Mat. 24:44).

Prepping Israel

It takes neither a scholar in Bible prophecy nor a scholar of Middle Eastern history to understand that dynamics in the region are building toward war. Those who would be governors of world geopolitics, such as the elite of the U.N., fear the region to be the ignition point for a future conflict that will explode into full-blown nuclear conflagration.

We know from god’s prophetic Word that Israel is destined both to suffer a time of great trouble and, ultimately, a thousand years of glory as the head of all nations. This turmoil and eventual emergence into great victory involves threats and pressures from surrounding nations which hate that Jewish state.

While Bible prophecy outlines and even details to some extent how all of this eventuates, the moment-by-moment, day-by-day developments are not always clear in regard to how all will unfold. Those pressures mentioned take the form of many points of shaping and influencing God’s chosen as the nation interacts among nation states of the region and the world.

I’m of the opinion that one such point of pressure is being used at present by the old serpent –Satan. –Thus to cause God’s chosen people to be seen as prototype for how he intends to manipulate and control the world’s population when allowed to foment his final moments of evil.

We have looked a number of times in these commentaries at how the COVID-19, so-called pandemic, has been wielded as a powerful tool with which to bludgeon the entire populations of the planet into submission. To any observer of Bible prophecy from the preTrib view, this, I’m convinced, globalist-generated biological weapon, was planned and is being used to establish a world-wide mindset of being willing to submit to authoritarian rule.

In this sense, Israel is, I believe, being somehow prepped to serve Satan’s purpose for the coming Tribulation holocaust.

We see story after story of COVID-19 used to lock down cities, and now entire nations. Australia, for example, has become almost again the prison colony it once was. The rulers in some parts –South Wales, for example—have become despotic in their evil demands. First they seized all private weapons they could force the Aussies to give up, and now they go house to house to demand vaccine proof. Those not compliant, go to something called “wellness camps” or some such designation.

But, regardless from where the stories of lockdowns, etc., come, it is more and more the tiny Jewish state that is being put in the world spotlight –all with the willing complicity of Israel’s own, growingly despotic leadership. The nation leads the world in people vaccinated to protect against COVID apparently, yet incongruent facts have emerged. The following report/analysis frames developments.

Just a few months ago, the mainstream media praised Israel for its “pandemic-ending” vaccination campaign. With over 40 percent of the population “fully vaccinated” in the first quarter of 2021, Israel was well on its way to stopping community spread and clearing out its hospitals.

The nation of Israel imposed some of the strictest lockdowns during that time, violating the Nuremberg Code and segregating the unvaccinated from public life. Israel bought up the Pfizer/BioNTech mRNA covid vaccine and began issuing mandatory Green Pass “vaccine passports” as a requirement for citizens to enter public spaces. By August, Israel had intimidated and coerced its population into having one of the highest vaccination rates in the world, with 78 percent of people 12 years of age and older classified as “fully vaccinated.”

The world was reassured that this rate of vaccination was more than enough to ensure individual and “herd immunity.” However, infection rates have skyrocketed across the country since then, and Israel is now logging the world’s highest infection rates, with nearly 650 new cases daily per million people. At times, hospitalizations for the “fully vaccinated” have reached upwards of 95 percent.

***[Ang, Source: Israel now has more covid infections per capita than any country in the world, even as “booster shots” are being widely administered there by Lance D Johnson, CitizenFreePress, Thursday, September 02, 2021]***

The nation is now again under draconian lock-down.

A friend emailed me this week and posed a fascinating question. He pondered whether Israel is in probably the most dictatorial-type lockdown of any nation on earth, keeping its citizens from leaving en masse for some Divine purpose.

Perhaps, he conjectured, it is because some action by the Lord or by some evil entity is pending. The severe sequestration keeping Israeli citizens more or less in lockdown is maybe, to protect or benefit them in some way from imminent something or the other.

We know the following is always true, no matter what the facts are surrounding that which seems to be prepping Israel for what is to come.

“Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.” (Psalm 121: 4)

Donation Drive Sept to Nov

When the June to August quarter began, I did not think it would end on a positive note. I’m pleased to report that it went very well. Our daily traffic was up over the previous quarter. When the year 2021 is finished, it will outpace the last five years for traffic.

The reason why I was pessimistic was because we were and still are getting a constant flood of warning notices from various companies. One firm sent me an email about every other day that says Rapture Ready is in violation of their rules. We’re on the naughty list, but we’re apparently not naughty enough for them to take action against us.

Because we don’t have any connection with Apple Corporation, I’ll use them as an example of the growing threat. Several years back, Apple was all about maintaining people’s privacy. The FBI had come to the corporation and wanted them to unlock a criminal’s smartphone, and Apple told them no. Today Apple has turned into Big Brother. It plans to search through everyone’s data to see if anyone has any illegal files.

In the announcement, Apple cited child porn as the excuse for poking into people’s data. Those who value privacy realize the danger of having a company snooping around in their accounts. If Apple decides that the Bible is a bad thing, they can lock up the accounts of all Christians.

One guy is suing Apple because it terminated an account that he had $24K in that he can no longer access. Chase Bank canceled General Flynn’s personal credit card, saying he was a “reputation risk.” This is the same bank that agreed to pay $920 Million in connection with schemes to defraud precious metals and U.S. Treasuries markets.

I keep hoping that people will push back against these companies, but nothing ever happens. By the time the public decides that these firms have gone too far, they will be too powerful to stop. Anyone who speaks out will be sent to a concentration camp.

It’s been several years since I recall seeing a new prophecy site come to the web. There are probably fewer prophecy sites on the net than there were five years ago. I know the search engines have most key words locked down, but if you can get the message out, it’s the best way to reach people.

I recently talked to a man who is one of the top-selling authors in the field of prophecy. He told me that his books are lucky to sell 25,000 copies. With Christian book stores fading into history, the market for prophetic books is very small. In an average month, we are able to reach ten times more people than what that author would take a few years to reach.

If you are a regular visitor to R.R., you know that all our content is for free. Most ministries operate on a ‘pay me first before you can access my content’ basis. In 2014, I watched a show that had four preachers who believed the rapture would take place during an upcoming blood moon event. I visited all four of these preacher’s sites, and not a single one had information for free. It made me wonder how much they actually believe their own teachings.

We have, yet again, increased our ad budget during the last quarter. By spending more for ads that draw people to the site, it generates more ad traffic that Google pays R.R. for. Our donations have also increased by running these ads. If you found the site by clicking on an ad, please consider donating to the site to help someone else find their way to this resource of end-time information.

There are three ways you can contribute to Rapture Ready: You can send a financial gift via our P.O. Box address, you can make a one-time donation, or there is a frequent option that allows you to make monthly donations. If you’re interested in signing up, find the input links on the Donation page.

Abraham and America

What does Abraham have to do with America? might be the question. No, not Abraham Lincoln, but Abraham, the progenitor of the Jewish race—one of the great, Old Testament fathers of faith in the One, True, Living God.

Thousands of years separate the United States of America from the time of Israel’s founding father, yet the linkage couldn’t be more apparent. Let’s explore what I mean.

We’ve examined the matter in various ways in our time together in these commentaries. Yet I sense it’s now most necessary to look more deeply into the connection. I believe the commonality of Abraham’s time to ours is undeniable.

Sodom’s Lot and Us

The comparison of Lot’s time in Sodom to us (believers) and our time in the present-day USA is astounding, really, in my view.

Sodom and Gomorrah were perhaps among the most highly successful commercial centers of the world at the time when Lot served in the gates of Sodom. He was apparently a city official—a judge—who rendered verdicts of various sorts in contested matters among the citizenry. It seems that just beneath the civility and smoothly operating society and culture of the time, however, there beat the heart of wickedness that emerged into violence and debauchery once the sun set each day.

We can only imagine what level of depravity could cause God, Himself, to come to earth and get a firsthand look at things going on.

Now, we know the Lord—the Creator of all that is—knew exactly what was going on in Sodom and Gomorrah. But He came, we can be almost certain, specifically so that there would be a record of the visit. I believe part of the reason for the visit was so you and I could consider the record of it these thousands of years later.

The chief sin of those cities—Sodom in particular—almost with a doubt, according to the scriptural record, was sexual activity of the most egregious nature.

God the Son, in a theophany appearance to Abraham, addressed the matter of Sodom and Gomorrah:

And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous; I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know. (Genesis 18 20–21)

Particularly, sensual evil of every kind had progressed to sexual perversion of every sort. We know that the Apostle Paul reflected on the perverse nature of the activity thousands of years later:

For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet. (Romans 1:26–27)

Abraham, Lot’s uncle—when he finally figured out that he was in the presence of God, Himself—was terribly worried about what the Lord was about to do. Abraham, no doubt, knew about the evil going on in those heathen cities. He must have known that the Lord already knew all about it, too.

Abraham carefully and reverently approached the Lord, asking if He would spare the cities if the Lord could find first fifty righteous there, then thirty, then twenty, then ten.

The Lord said “yes” in every case. Abraham then must have concluded that his nephew and family were the only ones who were considered righteous in God’s holy eyes.

We don’t know what the population of those towns was, but the percentage of “righteous” within the total population must have been infinitesimally small. There just weren’t enough people who believed in God’s way to prevent destruction of the whole area.

In considering America and the degree of the wicked and perverse society and culture our nation has devolved into, here’s an interesting question that is relevant. We’ve heard it asked before:

“Might the Lord relent on our own nation’s well-deserved judgment and perhaps destruction if enough “righteous” (true believers in Christ) inhabit our land?”

We remember the quote attributed to Ruth Bell Graham, evangelist Billy Graham’s wife: “If God doesn’t judge America [for all the wickedness Mrs. Graham saw] He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.”

The Lord didn’t get angry at Abraham when He rather meekly sought God’s agreement to relent from His decision to destroy those depraved people. Surely there are more “righteous” in America, percentage-wise, than there were in Sodom and Gomorrah in Lot’s day.

On the other hand, in some ways, America, the most God-blessed nation in human history, materially speaking, and one of the most blessed, spiritually, has exceeded any other civilization in wickedness. Considering the slaughter of millions upon millions of the unborn—and the murder of babies even after birth—as well as the twisting of God’s natural order through LGBTQ and other perversion-engendered venues, can the Righteous Lord of Heaven even entertain our prayerfully issued question as He did Abraham’s?

Or is it time for Him, like in Lot’s day, to remove the righteous like He did in that troubled time of antiquity?

Perhaps, thinking on all the things we see developing, we are about to find out.
