As we take a look at the economic condition of the United States, we really wonder how much longer it can exist as a sovereign nation. The national debt now stands at 9,614,730,485,715 trillion dollars. In 1981 Ronald Reagan signed the first one trillion debt bill for the United States. It had taken from 1776 to 1981 for this nation to go in debt one trillion dollars. Now the national debt has gone over 9 trillion dollars in twenty-seven short years - - - and this is only the beginning. The congress has just bailed out Fannie Mae and Freddie Mack, two of the largest investing firms, to the tune of twenty billion dollars. This becomes the tax payer's debt. The executives of these two firms were retired with millions of dollars in severance pay packages, and more than likely given other governing jobs. What a sad state of affairs for the working class in America. This nation is paying ten billion dollars a month for an unneeded, unwanted war. All of which were conjured up as the War on Terror.

What else is going on with the United States economy? Ten banks have failed this year. The FDIC has had to pay for these closures. When this happens, these banks generally team up with another bank, so the indebtedness of the failed bank becomes another bank's liability, weakening the other bank's assets. And the `Fed continues to pump billions into the banking system to keep it afloat. So, was Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac the only big businesses in trouble? Certainly not! The airline industry is on the verge of bankruptcy because high fuel prices and low passenger fare. Are they the next on the bail out list? Will the government expect the United States taxpayers to take on this expense? Then there is the auto industry. Sales are down, and they too are in a precarious position. Can the United States tax payer expect to bail out the auto industry also? Some of the largest investment firms are also in trouble. The government bailed out Bear Sterns. Can they fail to bail out other investment companies also? I think not. It would appear the government has opened a can of worms they cannot control. So what is the answer? The United States is paying $2,300,000,000 interest on what it has already borrowed, and it is borrowing more every day to keep the wars going and to operate this over-inflated government. This nation is governed by greedy men who only think of self, and their own self esteem. Not one who is running for office has any answers for what this nation is facing with the weakened dollar, a failed economy, and a people who have turned their back on God, who look only to the government for their help. Even those in the world know something is wrong. The prophet Jeremiah spoke of this day:

"A sword is upon their horses, and upon their chariots, and upon all the mingled people that are in the midst of her; and they shall become as women: a sword is upon her treasures; and they shall be robbed." Jeremiah 50:37

Horses and chariot represent war machinery. America's war machines are depleted, worn out, and obsolete. A sword is upon all the mingled people. Jeremiah is speaking of the mixed multitude that makes up this nation. The sword is upon her treasures. Do you wonder why this nation is broke, in debt, and headed for the scrap pile of history?

As God's people, what should we be doing through all of this uncertainty?

It is very important to get prepared for what is coming. Get some food, water, and every day supplies for what you will need to survive in the days ahead. Get your finances in your own hands. Close out bank accounts. Cash in your stocks, bonds, and other investments. Get some hard capital such as gold and silver. Maintain a small pile of cash. A prepared people are survivors. We still have a short time. Use it wisely. Praise God!
