Again, thank you so much and may you have great treasures set up in heaven for all eternity! Do feel free to make copies of any part of this newsletter as well as anything else from our resource list and share with others! Time may be short!
I keep hearing more and more about the soon coming financial collapse in this country and elsewhere so I thought I’d share with you the following article showing just how fast things are taking place in hopes you might prepare.
19 Facts That Prove Things in America Are Worse Than They Were Six Months Ago
Has the U.S. economy gotten better over the past six months or has it gotten worse? In this article, you will find solid proof that the U.S. economy has continued to get worse over the past six months.
Unfortunately, most people seem to think that since the stock market has rebounded significantly in recent weeks that everything must be okay, but of course that is not true at all. If you look at a chart of the Dow, a very ominous head and shoulders pattern is forming and all of the economic fundamentals are screaming that big trouble is ahead. When Donald Trump told the Washington Post that we are heading for a “very massive recession”, he wasn’t just making stuff up. We are already seeing lots of things happen that never take place outside of a recession, and the U.S. economy has already been sliding downhill fairly rapidly over the past several months. With all that being said, the following are 19 facts that prove things in America are worse than they were six months ago…
#1 U.S. factory orders have now declined on a year over year basis for 16 months in a row. As Zero Hedge has noted, in the post-World War II era this has never happened outside of a recession… In 60 years, the US economy has not suffered a 16-month continuous Yo-yo drop in Factory orders without being in recession. Moments ago the Department of Commerce confirmed that this is precisely what the US economy did, when factory orders not only dropped for the 16th consecutive month, after declining 1.7% from last month
#2 Factory orders have now reached the lowest level that we have seen since the summer of 2011.
#3 It is being projected that corporate earnings will be down 8.5 percent for the first quarter of 2016 compared to one year ago. This will be the fourth quarter in a row that we have seen year over year declines, and the last time that happened was during the last recession.
#4 Total business sales have fallen 5 percent since the peak in mid-2014.
#5 S&P 500 earnings have now fallen a total of 18.5 percent from their peak in late 2014.
#6 corporate debt defaults have soared to the highest level that we have seen since 2009.
#7 the average rating on U.S. corporate debt has fallen to “BB”, which is lower than it has been at any point since the last financial crisis.
#8 The U.S. oil rig count just hit a 41 year low.
#9 51 oil and gas drillers in North America have filed for bankruptcy since the beginning of last year, and according to CNN we could be on the verge of seeing the biggest one yet…Shale oil driller Sand Ridge Energy (SD) warned there was “substantial doubt” it would survive the oil downturn. The Oklahoma City Company said this week it is exploring a potential Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing. Based on its $3.6 billion of debt, Sand Ridge would be the biggest North American oil-focused company to go bust during the current downturn, according to a CNN Money analysis of stats compiled by law firm Haynes and Boone.
#10 According to Challenger, Gray & Christmas, and job cut announcements by major firms in the United States was up 32 percent during the first quarter of 2016 compared to the first quarter of 2015.
#11 Consumers in the United States accumulated more new credit card debt during the 4th quarter of 2015 than they did during the entire years of 2009, 2010 and 2011 combined.
#12 Existing home sales in the U.S. were down 7.1 percent during the month of February, and this was the biggest decline that we have witnessed in six years.
#13 Subprime auto loan delinquencies have hit their highest level since the last recession.
#14 The Restaurant Performance Index in the U.S. recently dropped to the lowest level that we have seen since 2008.
#15 Major retailers all over the country are shutting down hundreds of stores as the “retail apocalypse” accelerates.
#16 If you take the number of working age Americans that are officially unemployed (8.1 million) and add that number to the number of working age Americans that are considered to be “not in the labor force” (93.9 million), that gives us a grand total of 102 million working age Americans that do not have a job right now
#17 Since peaking during the 3rd quarter of 2014, U.S. exports of goods and services have been steadily declining. This is something that we never see outside of a recession…
#18 The cost of everything related to medical care just continues to skyrocket even though our wages are stagnating. According to the Social Security Administration, 51 percent of all American workers make less than $30,000 a year, and yet the cost of medical care just hit a brand new all-time high…
#19 Our government debt continues to spiral out of control. At this point it is sitting at a staggering total of $19,218,516,838,306.52, but when Barack Obama first entered the White House it was only 10.6 trillion dollars. That means that our government has been stealing an average of more than 100 million dollars an hour from future generations of Americans every single hour of every single day since Barack Obama was inaugurated…How in the world can anyone look at those numbers and suggest that everything is okay?
I simply do not understand how that could be possible. Part of the problem is that Americans have been trained to be irrationally optimistic. It is fine to have an optimistic outlook on life, but when it causes you to throw logic and reason out the window that is not good. For example, you can be “optimistic” about your ability to fly all you want, but if you step off a 10 story building you are going to take a very hard fall to the ground. Similarly, you can ignore all of the facts and pretend that our economic prosperity is sustainable all you want, but it won’t change the fundamental laws of economics.
Just because very difficult times are approaching does not mean that it will be time to run and hide. I always live my life with no fear, and when things get crazy I believe that it will be an opportunity to do even more good. We believe that the greatest chapters of our lives are still ahead of us, and we want people to understand why they can look forward to the future even though great darkness is rising all around us. So yes, I definitely carry a message of warning. But I also bring a message of hope.
As we look toward the future, there is much to be concerned about, but there are also things happening that are worth getting extremely excited about. It is when times are the darkest that the light is needed the most, and very soon light will be greatly, greatly needed in the United States of America.
Donald Trump Finally Apologizes To Ted Cruz over Heidi Photo Scandal: I Made a Mistake
“We never thought we’d see the day when Donald Trump would apologize for something! The GOP candidate said he was sorry for posting an unflattering picture of Heidi Cruz … ‘Yeah, it was a mistake’, Trump told her. ‘If I had to do it again, I wouldn’t have sent it’. We are reporting on this news story, not for its contents, but for the picture shown. In this pose, Senator Ted Cruz has slipped his hand into his breast-pocket, under his dress coat, in a typical Masonic Hand-sign gesture!
Discerning Christians are already concerned because we know that Heidi Cruz is a member of the Illuminati Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)! Have members of the Masonic Fraternity used this hand-sign gesture to secretly flash their allegiance to the Brotherhood, while hiding it from people who are not Masons! Yes, most certainly! Members practicing the occult arts feel the need to communicate in such a manner as to hide the message from the uninitiated while effectively communicating with each other. Hand signals are one of these ways of communicating to other members of the occult.
When a person is using one of these mysterious symbols, they are communicating one of several messages to other occultists throughout the world.
1) That they are a Mason or a member of some other occult group;
2) That they are exercising either the powers of the occult or the Plan of the Illuminati in the function of their office;
3) That they are committed to the appearance of the Masonic Christ;
4) That they are committed to rebuilding the Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem.
“Therefore, the name of the horrible god whom the Masons worship must stay hidden … must be concealed at all costs, and thus an appropriate hand sign has been devised to represent this grotesque cover-up: the Sign of the Hidden Hand
“According to Duncan’s the candidate presents this sign when he is (ceremonially) approached sojourners by three from Babylon. Their objective: Rebuild the Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem and eventually establish a world empire … In his teaching course on Ancient Masonry, C.C. Zain of The Brotherhood of Light explains that the ritual for this degree requires a keen insight of astrology. But, its performance is said to be derived from a passage in the Scriptures.” ‘The Sign is made’, writes Zain, ‘by thrusting the hand into the bosom and again drawing it out’.” Notice that, while Donald Trump is making the hidden hand symbolism, Senator Ted Cruz is making the more traditional hand over the heart gesture. Cutting Edge Ministries has long maintained that there is no bottom line difference between Republican and Democrat leadership, because the leaders of both parties equally committed to the New World Order (NOVUS ORDO SECLORUM, on the back of the One Dollar Bill). Freemasonry is the most common denominator of Presidents. For example: * Presidents George H.W. and George W. Bush were not only Masons, but life-long adepts of the Satanic Skull & Bones secret society, the same type of society which trained Adolf Hitler in the deepest aspects of Satanism! * President Barack Obama is a 32nd Degree Prince Hall Mason. Therefore, Christians must be doubly concerned that Senator Ted Cruz now has two strikes against him and his campaign. We cannot ignore these warning signs, flashing the signal to us that Ted Cruz is another of those “wolves in sheep’s clothing”!
*For a better understanding of Freemasonry, you might want to see the DVD titled: Freemasonry: Out of Darkness into Light? Available for a gift of any amount this month.
U.S. May Vanish like Babylon
America is continuing its descent to judgment‘America has been weighed on the scales and found wanting. And the days of the Republic may be at an end. This from Franklin Graham, who has a biblical warning for the United States, that Americans could share the fate of the Babylonian empire. In a recent post on his Facebook page, the son of the legendary evangelist Billy Graham told the story of how the Babylonian king Belshazzar was shown the writing on the wall from God’s hand, telling him his reign was over because he did not honor God. Graham concluded: “What’s the writing on the wall for America? As a nation we are found lacking because of sin and disobedience to God’s Holy Word. We have not honored Him. If we don’t turn back to God, I fear that our end will be near.” Christian leaders and writers were quick to agree with Graham’s warning. Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, the bestselling author of “The Harbinger” and “The Mystery of the Shemitah,” said Graham is echoing some of the themes he has talked about for years. “Sin leads to judgment,” said Cahn. “This law touches not only individuals, but nations and civilizations. To whom much is given, much is required. A nation that has been especially favored with God’s blessings and the revelation of the Word is much more accountable concerning judgment. This applies to America.” Cahn claimed America was founded out of the pattern of ancient Israel. “If America ever turns away from God and His ways, the blessings of God will be removed from the land and the judgments that came up on ancient Israel will come upon America,” he said. Cahn argues that is precisely what is happening with “continuing manifestations of judgment” appearing in our time. “As I have always said, God is in charge of the timing, but as it is now, America is continuing decisively in its descent to judgment,” he concluded.
Mark Biltz, pastor of El Shaddai Ministries and author of “Blood Moons” and the upcoming “God’s Day Timer: The Believer’s Guide To Divine Appointments,” also argued God is ultimately in control of America’s fate. “It is said that the one thing we learn from history is that we don’t learn from history!” he exclaimed. “The last 4,000 years of world history are full of the rise and fall of kingdoms. “Many had their turns at the helm of history. But immorality, how they treated the Jewish people, or both were always the cause of their demise.
The God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel will bring all the kingdoms of this world in subjection to His leadership. He will put an end not only to America’s dominance but an end to every kingdom as He sets up His rule.” Several commentators said Christians must avoid the temptation of seeking redemption through secular politics.
Bill Cloud, author of “Esau Rising,” said Christians have a special responsibility to look to God rather than any political leader. “I know we are in the heat of this political cycle and there are a lot of Christians who think that if we just get the right guy in office then somehow all of our problems will be solved,” said Cloud. “Well, I don’t think that any person, any party or philosophy is going to save the nation. Scripturally, it says that if the land is to be healed, what has to happen is that God’s people have to humble themselves, seek His face, pray, and turn from their wicked ways. And so initially it’s upon the Christians. The responsibility is upon the Christians to turn back to God in repentance and forsake our sins. Then we see these other things begin to fall in place. Then you’ll see a spiritual renewal take place throughout the nation.”
Last month, Graham made similar comments, saying he had zero hope in the Republican Party and saying he only had faith in God. Carl Gallups, a pastor, talk show host and author of several books including “Be Thou Prepared,” said America has lost sight of its Christian foundation. “From the earliest writings of many of our founding fathers to later declarations of presidents, the Supreme Court, and various national officials – the Christian heritage and foundation of our nation’s principles are indisputable,” he told WND. “It is precisely because of our Christian heritage that other religions of the world are free to lawfully exercise their faith – or even to hold no faith at all – without government penalty. It was a brilliant and godly plan. The institution of that plan brought the world the most unique and blessed nation the world has ever known since ancient Israel. “We have turned so far from those founding principles. Unless America (beginning in its pulpits and pews and thus influencing the halls of government) repents and turns back to our foundation of Godly heritage – we will simply go the way of every other secular and godless empire of ages past.”
Cheryl Chumley, author of “The Devil in DC” and a WND staff writer, said temporal politics do matter. Ultimately, however, she agreed spiritual devotion is more important. “It’s great that so much interest has been generated among the constituency over this current primary season,” she said. “And it’s great that Republican candidates are rousing conservatives, and particularly evangelicals, from their slumber of the past two presidential races, when many stayed home instead of voting. But we have to remember our nation, based on Judeo-Christian principles, isn’t one where government is the be-all and end-all of fixing what ails. America’s greatness is tied to the realization individual rights come from God, not government.
“Unfortunately, we’ve been mocking the one who’s granted us this great nation – we’ve been living in sin, fooling ourselves into believing things like abortion, adultery, gay marriage, and so forth, are simply changes with the times and those who oppose on religious or Christian grounds ought to just shut up and quit forcing out-of-date morals on the rest of society. Well, they’re not – they’re standards set by God. And the price for failing to uphold God’s standards is removal of His blessings and protections.”
However, though many of the writers and pastors asked agreed with Graham’s comments, Joel Richardson, bestselling author of the “The Islamic Antichrist” and director of the new film “Global Jesus Revolution,” had the most challenging response. He argued Christians need to brutally examine their own conduct, and that of their leaders. “We are now increasingly hearing various American preachers claim that if the United States as a whole does not turn back to God, we are doomed as a nation,” said Richardson. “Such comments however, while having elements of truth, do little to help our current situation. First of all, every nation throughout the earth is going to face the judgment of the Lord. The universal Day of Reckoning is looming for every nation – and for every person. As Christians however, our primary duty is to first repent ourselves, and then to call other believers to obedience to Jesus.
“How can we expect unbelievers to repent of their sins and idols, when we ourselves are not even living in obedience to Jesus? How can we as the American church for example, ask unbelievers to forsake their idols when we as a community celebrate pastors who live in ten million dollar homes with three elevators? “Do I think judgment is coming? Yes, absolutely. The Day of the Lord is inescapable. Who can stand on that day? But we must remember that as the Scriptures state, judgment begins in the house of God. Personally I am seeking to repent myself, and then to very solemnly call other believers to repent and get back to actually following Jesus as the early believers did. When we as a community truly do this, then revival will come to this nation.”
NEW! Hillary Clinton Exposed!
There has been a documentary film produced titled: Hillary Clinton Exposed! It was to be shown in theaters throughout this country. But somehow, through her power, she was able to have this film banned so no one was able to see it. But guess what! God got a copy into my hands! I was thinking of airing this and I’m still praying about it but as you may know, there is a long history of powerful cover-ups concerning Bill and Hillary Clinton even as she was still a senator thinking of running for President. Much was concerning his drug trafficking. I believe it was over 20 people murdered to keep this cover-up going. One man was reported to have committed suicide by shooting himself in the back of his head with a shotgun, which is impossible! Another man was reported to have died due to falling asleep on some rail road tracts. Now that Hillary is running for President, it would be very easy for her to take me out under the name of homeland security. If you would like a copy, it’s available for a gift of any amount and please do share it with others! America is at stake! Hillary Clinton Exposed!
Muslims screaming “Allahu akbar” fire hundreds of shots in remote area of Southern California
No word yet from authorities about the identities or affiliation of the men arrested. The Adelanto, CA Police Department effectuated the arrests.
According to the victim/witness, there were two groups of men, about 15 per group, armed with heavy weapons, which began shouting “Allah u Akbar” and started firing. The firing allegedly lasted upwards of TWO HOURS before police were able to find callers in the vast California parkland. When police were responding, one group of 15 or so men took-off into the hills, while the other group was captured by police.
Man Eating Zombie Cats?
This sounds like something during the apocalypse but believe it or not, a zombielike pathogen has infected large cats worldwide causing them to become fearless attackers targeting the human species. They believe the virus originated from raccoons but once these large cats contract the virus they become zombielike coming into cities, towns and villages thought the world. They have had to be shot even in areas as Chicago.
The Zeka Virus Continues to Spread!
If you’ve been catching the news, you already know the Zeka virus has well entered into the United States. We did some research on this to learn if Colloidal Silver kills this Zika virus and it does! Along with every other virus known to man and with no side effects! If you would like to obtain a basic Colloidal Silver kit so you can make this at home for pennies a gallon rather than buying it at health food stores for as much as $40.00 for only 6 ounces, we still have our Colloidal Silver kits available for only $44.00. These are capable of making between 20-25 gallons of Colloidal Silver or about $5000.00 of Colloidal Silver going by health food store prices! It’s so sad that so few people know about Colloidal Silver. The kit comes with everything you need including instructions as well as a free DVD titled: Suppressed Medical Advances.
Are the Bionic Bands a New Age Metaphysical Practice?
Believe it or not, I was recently accused of promoting the New Age practice of carrying the Bionic Bands. This reminds me of the Scripture saying “My people parish due to a lack of knowledge”. No, the Bionic Bands are not New Age at all! It is totally scientific and discovered by none other than Albert Einstein, and he was no New Ager! Here’s how they work. The Earth is exactly at 7.83 hertz. We used to be too! That is until the introduction of many other frequencies onto this planet; frequencies from such areas as TV, AM & FM radio, Short Wave and the like. But in more recent years, the worst of the worst have been cell phones and cell phone towers! All these frequencies go right through us and rob us from our strength, balance, energy, mental capabilities including memory and in many cases, cause physical pain. But when wearing a Bionic Band, all these other frequencies no longer have any effect on us. Thus, we are back to normal again. The way God meant for us to be. The cost for an original Bionic Band is still only $55.00 or two for $50.00 each. They attach around your wrist with Velcro. We also have some made from a rubbery silicone substance. These are only $25.00 each (the sports band) and provide a little more energy. All come in two sizes, either large 6.5” to 8.5” wrist size or medium 6 to 8” wrist size.
Want to Start Your Own Ministry to the Cults?
First of all, you are called to get people saved. There’s no way around that. It’s Scriptural! So many Christians seem to think that ministry is something for somebody else. Some special elite group called by God. But when Jesus gave the Great Commission, He gave it to all believers! This includes you! When Cultivate Ministries first got started, it was difficult to find the proper tools to use. All there was were a few audio tapes floating around. Today, it’s quite different. Today, we have these DVDs that are so easy to use as tools.
When I got saved back in 1974, my heart really went out to the lost, especially those in the cults. I mean here were so many people who were striving to do their best to get into heaven but they remain lost their whole life until they die and then spend all eternity in hell! It seems strange to me that now we have the tools but we lack the believers using them. It seems many look at those in the cults differently than God does. So many Christians look at someone in a cult as the enemy. Whereas God looks at those in the cults as victims of the enemy! And then He wants us to reach out to them with the truth and get them saved! So, where are all the believers that are actually reaching out to those in the cults? There’s just not many left. But once in a while someone who actually cares for these people shows up. One such person is Pastor Billy Crone.
Last month I was able to air two weeks of his DVDs titled: World Religions, cults and the Occult. There’s actually 4 parts on a two DVD set. If you would like a set of these, they’re available for a gift of any amount this month and if you promise me you will use these to start your own ministry, I’ll send them to you for free!
Many of you are already members of our 30 Club. Thank you for that! You guys are helping me to pay for the airtime! Plus this is a great deal for all. DVDs are normally $20.00 each but through the 30 Club you receive all DVDs aired, an $80.00 value for a gift of $30.00 or more each month. If you’ve not yet joined the 30 Club, you might want to do so now. 2016 has already proven to be one very interesting year! And it’s getting all the more interesting pretty much every day! Just let me know when you write if you’d like to join now. Thanks! -Jim
I’ve never claimed to be a Mr. Spiritual. I’m still not! Just a guy willing to do whatever the Lord wants me to. Why He chose me to be a watchman for the Church, I may never know. What I do know is that so many watchmen for the Church have been dropping like flies. I ask that you pray I and the few that are left be able to continue right up to the end with an uncompromising stand getting people saved and alerting the Church as to what is taking place in this late hour and then other Christians do the same as we have but only better. And don’t exclude yourself! We are all held accountable equally before the Lord for that which we know and that which we are capable of doing. Please pray the Lord raise many more watchmen for the Church. The need is so great!
Thank you again ever so much to those who help keep this ministry going through your prayers and support! Both of which are greatly needed at this time. Yours because His:
