Stock Market Continues Its Nose Dive

Editor’s Note: Please be advised according to Bible Prophecy which is never wrong, very terrible tough and frightening times are coming to the world. America will not be exempt.

“They cast their silver into the streets, and their gold is like an unclean thing. Their silver and gold are not able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD. They cannot satisfy their hunger or fill their stomachs with it. For it was the stumbling block of their iniquity..” -Eze 7:19 (ESV)

This Wasn’t Supposed To Happen…

By Michael Snyder in Nov 2018

We have definitely deviated from the script.  According to virtually all of the “experts”, the stock market was not supposed to keep plummeting in November.  This was supposed to be the month when the market calmed down and things returned to normal.  But instead, November is starting to look a whole lot like October, and many investors are really starting to freak out.  U.S. stocks declined for a third day in a row on Monday, and all post-election gains have now been completely wiped out.  The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost another 602 points, and all of these large daily losses are really starting to add up.  It may still be a bit too early to call this a “major financial crisis”, but if stock prices keep plunging like this it won’t be too long before all hell starts breaking loose on Wall Street.

Goldman Sachs, GE and California utility stocks were some of the biggest losers on Monday, but it was Apple that made the biggest news

Investors grew concerned after Wells Fargo analysts identified Apple as the unnamed customer that optical communications company Lumentum Holdings said was significantly reducing orders. The news sent Apple’s stock down 5 percent for the day. Lumentum shares plunged almost 33 percent.

Shares in other major tech stocks fell. Advanced Micro Devices gave up 9.51 percent, while Nvidia fell 7.84 percent. Micron Technology lost 4.27 percent. Banks and consumer-focused companies, and media and communications stocks also took heavy losses.

All along, tech stocks had been leading the bull market on the way up, but now things have completely shifted.

In recent weeks tech stocks have been absolutely cratering, and several of the biggest names are now officially in bear market territory.  The following summary comes from Wolf Richter

  • Facebook [FB] dropped 2.4% today, to $141.55 and is down 35% from its peak in July.
  • Amazon [AMZN] dropped 4.4% to $1,636.85 a share and is down nearly 20%, from the peak on September 5, when shares nearly kissed for the briefest moment $1 trillion.
  • Alphabet [GOOG] dropped 2.6%. At $1,038.63, shares are down 18% from the peak in July.
  • NVIDIA [NVDA] plunged 7.8% today to $189.54 and is down 34.5% over the past six weeks and down 11% from a year ago.
  • Netflix [NFLX] dropped 3.1% today to $294.07 and has plunged 30% from its high in early July.
  • Microsoft [MSFT] fell 2.4% today to $106.87 and is down 7.5% from its peak at the beginning of October.

The environment on Wall Street is radically different than it was even six months ago.  Today, there are concerns about what a divided Congress will mean for the next two years.  Certainly there will be no more tax cuts, and many investors are bummed about that.  There are also concerns that the trade war between the United States and China will continue to escalate.  In addition, interest rates continue to rise, housing numbers continue to get worse, and we continue to get more evidence that the global economy is really starting to slow down.

And one thing that is really spooking investors right now is the surging U.S. dollar

Stocks investors are spooked about a lot of things, and the strong dollar biting into earnings growth is now one of them.

The dollar index, which measures the greenback versus a basket of other currencies, jumped 0.7 percent on Monday to 97.58, a 17-month high. As the dollar rose, the Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 602 points to 25,387, and the S&P 500 was down nearly 2 percent to 2,726.

You may be tempted to think that a strong dollar would be a good thing, but in this financial climate it is definitely not.  As I have discussed previously, many emerging market countries binged on debt during the boom years, and much of that debt was denominated in U.S. dollars.  Now that the dollar is surging, that is making it much, much more difficult to service and pay back those loans.

Meanwhile, the price of oil continues to fall precipitously.  At this point, oil has now fallen for 11 days in a row

Crude has now lost ground for 11 consecutive days, the longest slide since oil futures trading was introduced on the NYMEX in March 1983. The historic slump knocked oil into a bear market — barely a month after it hit four-year highs. Selling accelerated in extended trading, with crude breaking below $59 a barrel.

Monday’s drop signals skepticism from investors that Saudi Arabia will be able to quickly mop up a glut of supply that has suddenly emerged.

If you will remember, the price of oil also spiked dramatically and then fell like a rock just prior to the financial crisis of 2008.

Could it be possible that a similar scenario is playing out again?

Western Christianity Has De-fanged the Seriousness of Almighty God

Our God is a Consuming Fire

“For our God is a consuming fire.” -Heb 12:29 (KJV)

Western Christianity, especially in America, has downplayed the seriousness of Almighty God. This is an overwhelming statement and should be taken in the context of how you view God and His Son Yeshua – Jesus Christ. I think most will agree that we don’t know who God is in reality. I attended church for decades, engaged in [somewhat superficially] reading my Bible although not as regular as I wanted. And by this I missed knowing just exactly who He is. Only since immersing myself deeper in His word and deeper in prayer and deeper in knowing Bible Prophecy do I now get a real glimpse of the magnificence, mightiness, reality and seriousness of God. And yet I am only skimming the surface of who He is.

I think that western Christianity has missed the boat on teaching and realizing who the God of the Bible is. We go to church and really want to be entertained or lulled into Christian complacency more than engage is serious worship – the worship that God wants. We attend church so we feel good about ourselves with the preaching of the sermon; we want not to be offended and return home happy and without worry. Please step back and examine what you hear and learn about the Lord in your service. You see God is serious; He doesn’t joke or kid around about our sin nor is He about the glamour and glitter displayed in many of our houses of worship today. God doesn’t soften His word to make it tolerable. Instead He speaks truth, a truth that so many don’t hear in their church.

We Have Misplaced God

And as a result, I believe that we’ve de-fanged God and forgotten just how mighty and serious He is about His creation. About sin and repentance: we seem to have swept under that carpet what He did with Noah’s generation and why and also what He did with Sodom and Gomorrah and why. We have tossed it aside because it’s seems negative, alarming and scary. Sorry to say that today many Christians are snowflakes and cannot stomach the fact that God will allow people to do as they wish and finally end up in a Godless eternity called HELL! 

What about Moses who was not allowed to enter the promised land…? Moses – the great man of God that proclaimed  ten horrible plagues that befell the land of Egypt. He was the man picked by God to lead the Hebrews out of Pharaohs’ grip in the land of Egypt. Read about the “why” here – Numbers 8:8-12. God is not about being our homey or someone just like us. He is God and there is no other – Isa 45:5. We need to recognize that He is God and deserves honor, praise, respect and fear with trembling.

God is Serious

He is serious about your sin and mine. He is deadly serious about repentance – amending of our ways and returning back to Him – to holy living. Turing away from worldly ways, thoughts, desires and attitudes. He is by all means against idolatry and folks this can be as simple as loving your cell phone or constantly giving more time to Facebook than to God. Yes, this is idolatry and can be described as anything that puts God second or further down your list. He wants to be first, the number one position in your life. He addresses it in the first church reprimand in Rev 2:4. When we lose our love for Him as we had when we first became saved, we are in danger of being entrapped and falling away to worldly ways. And yes we can fall away and lose our salvation. This is stated in many places in the Bible. Do not be deceived by those who claim that you can escape the fires of hell living the way you want without continual repentance of your sins and without living in holiness. 

Yes, there are some big-named Bible teachers that believe and preach that you cannot lose your salvation. They proclaim that if you were to fall away, you were never saved to begin with. Bunk! Their theology on this is in gross error. They must read all the Bible – OT and NT – and find out that God will allow you to fall back into the world if you don’t obey His word. We have free choice to believe and follow Him and turn away again after receiving the knowledge of the truth turning again to unrighteousness. For example, read 2 Th 2:3; there is coming (and I think here now) a great apostasy or falling away. Folks, if you fall away from the faith, you had to have the faith to begin with. The NT is replete with warnings of being careless in our Christian walk and end up forfeiting our eternal soul for that of casual Christianity and convenient carefree OSAS (once saved, always saved) living. You cannot compromise your faith with one foot in the world and the other foot in His word. This is lukewarmness and He will vomit you out of His mouth – Rev 3:16.

But I have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first.” – Rev 2:4 (ESV)

God is Coming Again But This Time…

God is returning to earth again but this time not like as the [subtle] Lamb of God that took upon Him the penalty of our sins and provided a way for our salvation in His sacrifice on the cross and thereby a path to eternal life. This time friends He’s coming in flaming fire to destroy those that do not obey Him or know Him. This is absolutely no joke – this is the word of God – 2 Th 1:8-9. If you are engaged in fornication with other gods (spiritual whoredom) or idolatry (even with an idolatrous heart) or in sexual immorality or a host of other things listed in the NT –1 Cor 6:9-10; Gal 5:19-21; Rev 22:15, you will not make it to heaven. If you did not know these things it’s (1) because you don’t read the Bible, and/or (2) your church fails to teach them. Flee that church and seek God in a no-kidding Bible-preaching church.

This is Serious Stuff

God is serious, hugely serious and yes, He has has teeth! He means what He says, is not kidding around, does not endorse, condone, or approve of any sin. His word is sure and He requires us to read it. He without question, interpretation or negotiation is serious about repentance. Without it in our lives, we will not enter His rest – Luke 13:1-5. In other words, we will not make it into heaven. Friends, this is serious stuff and you will these days only find the real truth of God and what and who He is like in the Bible. For many Christian churches do not teach who God is and just how serious He is about sin.

If you are serious and sincere, you will find Him and He you – Jer 29:13.  Casual or cultural Christianity followers will not find their home in heaven. In fact, this concept and doctrine is absolutely destroying and killing the church. Many people are headed for hell thinking they are secure in their ‘easy-street’ form of worshiping God. Take a look at Matt 7:13-14. Now this is the reality of fake Christianity and what the Lord says about it. Wow, that’s powerful! Yes, but 100% true!

Conclusion

If you feel comfortable in church and at ease with your flavor of Christianity you are in the wrong place. If you go there and almost fall asleep, you’re in the wrong place. If you go to church and are not impacted with the degree and severity of your sin before a Holy and Righteous God, you’re in the wrong place and your Christianity false or ‘casual’. GET OUT OF THAT CHURCH!! And find one that preaches the full council of God – Acts 20:27.

Many men of the Bible when approached by God or saw visions of Him became weak – had no strength, fell down as dead men, collapsed, turned pale, etc. Should we be any different? God is God and Almighty is He. He’s not about soft and cushy. His word is not milquetoast or like Koolaide and neither should our church sermons and ministry be softened to be easily swallowed to taste good. He’s mighty, longsuffering and loving, yet just. We need to remember this and come boldly, as needed, before His throne with fear and trembling. We need to engage in daily asking forgiveness for our sins in repentance with sincerity. We need to practice mourning for our sins and the sins of our nation. These things God desires. It’s time to get really right with Almighty God.

“My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise.” -Psa 51:17

Bible Prophecy Commentary: More Intense Fires, More Woes –

California leads the nation in filth! In porn, and the trash that Hollywood puts out, in injustice, and most of all in total rebellion against Almighty God, His values, His Bible and His Only Begotten Son. So therefore, could God be bringing a partial judgment upon the land with the plethora of wildfires this state has seen over the past few years? And it seems it’s getting worse. They, in effect,  have tossed God aside in favor of rebellious living, drugs, greed, lust and flat-out unholiness. But there are some – the remnant – that hold the word of God true in the hearts and minds.

Calamities are increasing, this cannot be denied! Amos 3:6

The Lord is coming but who is watching, who is waiting for Him? These fires could be but a prelude to what is to come but you can’t deny that something is up, something amiss. Is it the gross and sick sin that infects many in California and for that matter the rest of the US. Is God sending these fires as warnings? IMO, I say He is, so we better heed what He is trying to tell us. Find out more by daily reading His word.

“For, behold, the Lord will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire.” -Isa 66:15 (KJV)

These are things that we must consider for God’s word is sure and by His judgments people of the world will learn righteousness – Isa 26:9.

Take heed friends as the more America strays from Him – the Lord God Almighty – the worse the judgments will become. Are you right before the Lord today? Do you know Him and does He know you? If you have never read these verses – Matt 7:21-23 – now is the time to read and know. The Lord is coming but who is watching and waiting for Him today? Are you?

” Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22- On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ 23- And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’.” -Matt 7:21-23 (ESV)
