Who is you source?

What if we had another collapse in the stock market? What if this time it was not just in America, but it was world wide? Is Jesus your source? There are many names for G_d. Jesus came in the flesh to die as a man, for the sins of all mankind. If we suffer with Him, we will also reign with Him. Sometimes the concept of GOD is more than we can fathom.
Right now, this Earth is undergoing a shaking, both in the spirit and in the natural. First the natural, then the spiritual comes. I didn't say that, God did. My opinion doesn't matter, well at least not much. If man says something, you may discount it and cast it aside. On the other hand, if God is speaking through a man, whether he be a man of the cloth or just an everyday "Joe," you had better listen.
When we meditate on God's Word, when men cry "peace and safety" then comes sudden destruction. Disaster does not come at convenient times, but often comes when all hell is breaking forth in what seems to be in every area of our lives. Like a house being remodeled, it seems to get worse, or maybe even more worse before it gets better. Sometimes it seems as though things will never get better. Like the old saying from the 1970's, "Life is a bitch, then you die." Sometimes life seems that way, but it is not God's way.
The Bible says that "I have come that you might have life and that more abundantly." Jesus died for us that we might have freedom. On the other hand, the same Bible says that the "righteous will suffer." "Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all."
When Moses appeared before Pharoah to tell him that GOD said, "Let my people go!" Pharoah did not immediately comply. The Israelites suffered along with the Egyptians, but there came a time of separation. There comes a time when God draws the line and He says "Enough!" In the land of Goshen, there were no harmful effects. The Israelites were NOT affected by the later plagues of the Egyptians.
When the Jews were leaving, God placed a cloud for them behind them. It was between the Jews on one  hand and the Egyptian army on the other. This cloud was "light" to the Jews, but this same cloud was "darkness" to the Egyptian Army.  The Egyptians were able to match Moses' miracles at first, even though Moses' rod which became a snake ate their's, there came a time where even the sorcerers said "This is the hand of God!"
If the world stock market crashed tomorrow, would you be secure with Jesus alone? Could you rest in Him without fear and say like Job stated, "Though HE slay me, yet will I trust Him!" A hundred years after Abraham Lincoln was assassinated, John F Kennedy suffered the same fate. Has it been a hundred years since the stock market crashed? Many things repeat on a one hundred year cycle. This would be awful: numerous people would commit suicide, people would panic, people would loot cities and chaos would reign supremely. I hope and pray that this does not happen, but what if? The Lord is shaking things up. America is very close to becoming another Hitler's Germany. Hitler's name may be Obama. I pray for our President, but he is taking us down a path that will lead to certain destruction. If there has ever been a time to pray, it is now!!!
One of God's name is Jehovah Jireh, God our Provider. Either HE is our husband or HE is not. The shepherd provides for His sheep. Not because of what they do, but because they belong to Him. Provision only comes to those who are owned by the Shepherd. He prepares a table for us in the very presence of our enemies. We have no need to fear. God will provide. I wonder how Noah felt when he heard the screams of those outside the ARK. When God says "GO!," we should move. We often get locked in to a body, but the word of God says that God is with us "wherever we go."(Joshua 1:9) I pray that our ears will be fine tuned to our Master's voice. The only thing that sheep must do is follow their Master's voice. He that hath an ear, let him hear what God is saying to the church in this hour!
