Everyday Price Index
Everyday Price Index
You know, we used to say don’t believe everything you hear, or read. Now, we can emphatically say don’t believe anything you hear or read from your corrupt, bankrupt, communist civil government. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics recently released the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for 2011, which shows inflation to only be 3.1 percent. Well, you might want to check out the website of the American Institute for Economic Research (AIER). http://www.aier.org/article/7557-epi-reflects-basic-economic-change They show that the real inflation rate, the Everyday Price Index (EPI), for the ordinary Joe Plumber in America was actually closer to 8 percent for 2011. The CPI tracks things like new home purchases, new cars, new computers, etc. But really, how many Americans buy a new home or new car or new computer every year? The EPI tracks stuff real people like Joe Plumber purchase, fuel, groceries, communications services, etc. Fuel alone went up 21.06 % in 2011!! Inflation is just another way of saying your dollar is losing purchasing power, or your dollar is being devalued. There’s nothing pretty or economically stimulating about inflation, it’s just another tax on your life.
So, aren’t you glad you don’t have to depend on the world for your happiness? You can have peace and joy in Yeshua, no matter what the actual inflation rate is. The world, its financial system, Satan’s system, is corrupt and bankrupt and impossibly in debt. Once Yeshua gets back here and reinstitutes His Sabbatical and Jubilee Year cycles, debts will be forgiven and cancelled each 7 years and you can get your real estate, your family’s inheritance, back each 49 years. You folks with college student loan debt, do you realize there is no way to be rid of that debt, except pay it off or die? Declaring bankruptcy does not eliminate student loan debt. Yippie.
No worries. Recently, we’ve mentioned Jonathan Cahn’s book, The Harbinger. I still strongly encourage all of you to get the book, and his DVD, if you can. It will help you understand what is happening in America. Read Isaiah 9:8-10, “Yahweh sent a word into Jacob, and it hath lighted upon Israel. 9And all the people shall know, even Ephraim and the inhabitant of Samaria, that say in the pride and stoutness of heart, 10The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycamores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.” This ancient prophecy is determining the final days and years of America. The spirit of defiance as seen in these verses is the spirit of America today. Don’t believe me? Have you been watching the weather news lately? We are experiencing lots of tornados again this year. Well, did you hear the comments made by the Harrisburg, Illinois mayor, Eric Gregg? Just like national leaders after 9/11, Mayor Gregg stated the Isaiah 9:10 vow of defiance, with the words, “we will rebuild”. He also said something about the people and city of Harrisburg will emerge from this calamity stronger than before. I would not have believed it, if I had not seen and heard it with my own eyes and ears. My jaw is still bouncing off the floor. This spirit of defiance is pervasive in this once great nation. Now, this spirit has been demonstrated down at the local city level.
Folks, unless Americans repent, TODAY, from this evil spirit and all our sins, from the lowliest citizen to the highest official in the land, we are doomed. Yahweh has gently, and mercifully, given us warning sign judgments from 9/11 forward. If America continues to walk stiff-necked, in pride and arrogance of heart, like our ancient Israeli brothers, our nation will cease to exist. We may be destroyed, or just sold into slavery. Isaiah 9:11-12, “Therefore Yahweh shall set up the adversaries of Rezin against him, and join his enemies together; 12The Syrians before, and the Philistines (Palestinians) behind; and they shall devour Israel (to include America and Great Britain today) with open mouth. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.” Yahweh may not use natural disasters to totally destroy us, we have plenty of human enemies that would love to see America destroyed, along with Israel. We have thrown Yahweh out of our schools, He will blow our schools apart, with tornados, hurricanes, terrorists, school shooters. Yahweh has more, and more powerful, weapons at His disposal than we do. It’s foolish to fight against Him. It’s best to love Him and obey Him.
Ezekiel chapter 5 is the word for today, “And thou, son of man, take thee a sharp knife, take thee a barber’s razor, and cause it to pass upon thine head and upon thy beard: then take thee balances to weigh, and divide the hair. 2Thou shalt burn with fire a third part in the midst of the city, when the days of the siege are fulfilled: and thou shalt take a third part, and smite about it with a knife: and a third part thou shalt scatter in the wind; and I will draw out a sword after them. 3Thou shalt also take thereof a few in number, and bind them in thy skirts. 4Then take of them again, and cast them into the midst of the fire, and burn them in the fire; for thereof shall a fire come forth into all the house of Israel (to include America and Great Britain today).
5Thus saith Sovereign Yahweh; This is Jerusalem (Washington D.C., London today): I have set it in the midst of the nations and countries that are round about her. 6And she hath changed my judgments into wickedness more than the nations, and my statutes more than the countries that are round about her: for they have refused my judgments and my statutes, they have not walked in them. 7Therefore thus saith Sovereign Yahweh; Because ye multiplied more than the nations that are round about you, and have not walked in my statutes, neither have kept my judgments, neither have done according to the judgments of the nations that are round about you; 8Therefore thus saith Sovereign Yahweh; Behold, I, even I, am against thee, and will execute judgments in the midst of thee in the sight of the nations. 9And I will do in thee that which I have not done, and whereunto I will not do any more the like, because of all thine abominations. 10Therefore the fathers shall eat the sons in the midst of thee, and the sons shall eat their fathers; and I will execute judgments in thee, and the whole remnant of thee will I scatter into all the winds. 11Wherefore, as I live, saith Sovereign Yahweh; Surely, because thou hast defiled my sanctuary with all thy detestable things, and with all thine abominations, therefore will I also diminish thee; neither shall mine eye spare, neither will I have any pity. 12A third part of thee shall die with the pestilence, and with famine shall they be consumed in the midst of thee: and a third part shall fall by the sword round about thee; and I will scatter a third part into all the winds, and I will draw out a sword after them. 13Thus shall mine anger be accomplished, and I will cause my fury to rest upon them, and I will be comforted: and they shall know that I Yahweh have spoken it in my zeal, when I have accomplished my fury in them. 14Moreover I will make thee waste, and a reproach among the nations that are round about thee, in the sight of all that pass by. 15So it shall be a reproach and a taunt, an instruction and an astonishment unto the nations that are round about thee, when I shall execute judgments in thee in anger and in fury and in furious rebukes. I Yahweh have spoken it. 16When I shall send upon them the evil arrows of famine, which shall be for their destruction, and which I will send to destroy you: and I will increase the famine upon you, and will break your staff of bread: 17So will I send upon you famine and evil beasts, and they shall bereave thee; and pestilence and blood shall pass through thee; and I will bring the sword upon thee. I Yahweh have spoken it.”
Does that “a third part” sound familiar? That sounds like the language used in the Book of Revelation. Friends, if Yahweh wills it, 100 million Americans will soon die from pestilence and famine, 100 million Americans will soon die from war (includes riots and terrorist attacks), and 100 million Americans will be scattered as refugees and slaves across the globe. I don’t know if you’re getting this understanding, we are out of time. It’s way past time to obtain and maintain a spirit of repentance, not defiance. Defying the calamities that Yahweh brings on us, instead of realizing it is Yahweh calling to us in love to repent, shows we are still in spiritual, as well as physical, danger. Yahweh, because He is the ultimate good, will ultimately crush all evil. That is what Yeshua’s second coming is about, partially. We are all evil and in need of repentance and washing in the blood of Yeshua. Yahweh is looking for His people to repent first. He promises to heal our land, if we, as Yahweh’s people, will repent and pray and seek Him. We have to turn from our wicked ways and back to Him, or we fry like the rest.
