Is it my age? Or is time really going by as fast as it seems? We are only three months away from saying goodbye to 2008.
This month promises to go down as one for the history books. The enormous financial crisis in the heart of our financial system has shaken our leaders and nation to our core. As I write this little note, our leaders of the Congress are attempting to devise a plan to bailout the banks and brokerage houses on Wall Street. They tell us we have to do this or else the entire financial system will collapse. Even then, there is no guarantee that this will fix the problem, even after they spend up to one trillion dollars of taxpayer money!
I have read numerous articles that this is the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression when the stock market crashed in 1929.
Why do I mention this to you? I urge you, first of all, to pray for our nation, our leaders and for the election of a new President, in a little over 30 days from now. Then I want to remind you that it is very critical for you to vote. If you are not registered, you still have time. Aside from that, I would lay in store extra food and other supplies where it is possible, since we could be in for some real tough times ahead.
These things all point to the soon coming of the Lord Jesus for His church! The most important preparation you can make is be ready for His coming.
As the Scripture reads "It is high-time to awake out of sleep and shake off the works of darkness..."
