For the past year I have heard repeated claims of "deflation". Yesterday I received a renewal from my long term care insurance. The insurance is updated each year for CPI increases. Despite montone media claims of deflation, the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company states that inflation over the past year has escalated to over 5 percent. In other words, the media coverage of this subject has been either (a) incompetent or (b) deceitful. Likely both. The media announcers on Fox (I won't mention CNN or Bloomberg, which are jokes) lack the ability to question the quack claims of university macro-economists. Despite the high inflation rate, network television and the major news outlets continue to claim that prices are going down. Anyone who relies on major news sources is a fool.

We know that BO is not the president ot the USA... he is a poser... he is, in fact, a usurper...based on his ineligibility... something to consider...
About Wilkerson's idea... he may be wrong also... but, getting a 30-day supply of food can never be a bad investment... because we will end up using the toilet paper, cans of ravioli and peaches, etc., either way, crisis or not... we have nothing to lose by being prepared...
I remember when our island was preparing for hurricane Iniki a few years back... I asked my then husband to please go to the store to stock up on essentials the night before the storm... he refused and blew me off saying the storm would bypass us like so many other storms had... I asked if he could guarantee 100% that we would not be hit... he could not guarantee that...
I said, tonight you can spend 20 minutes buying our essentials which we will use even if the hurricane does not hit us... or you can attempt to shop tomorrow after the storm... with hundreds of others waiting in line for gas and groceries... please do the right thing... I had to beg him and he finally did as I asked...
For those of you who already have your 30-Day food supply ~ Good Job!!!

Please do not misunderstand what I am about to say. I really have NOT lost my faith. But I think the Lord put it in perspective for me.
During the campaign, before the election, I was hearing from MANY sources (friends, bloggers, strangers, etc.) that the Lord was speaking to them in dreams. In visions. In near death experiences, etc. All with the same message, “Obama was not going to be elected.”
Then it was, “The Electoral College will not vote for him.”
Then it was, “Obama will not be inaugurated.”
Well, I don’t have to tell you, those messages did not happen and here we are in mid March – stuck with an illegal alien who is a Marxist, Socialist, Communist, etc.
I am not going to say that the Lord did not speak to Pastor Wilkerson, that would be too presumptuous of me.
I am just going to start looking towards the Cross and keep in His Holy Word, and keep praying.
I have been EXTREMELY discouraged and disappointed in man’s word.
In those dreams that didn’t come true.
In those visions that didn’t come true.
Thankfully, praise God, I have a very strong faith and I did not lash out to the Lord as breaking His promises.
A weak new Christian would have done that.
I saw this article. Maybe he is trying to reach the unsaved. I don’t know.
I have stock piled enough food for maybe 1 month for my family of 5. Less if my daughter’s family shows up on my door step.
Money and the room to store has prohibited me from purchasing more.
Now here is a question for you . . . is the food that I purchased for us Christians during the Tribulation OR
For the people that will break into my house to live and survive after I am gone with the Rapture?
I was joking with my friend, if it was for other people, then I would have purchased Mexican food.
Keep Well - LISA

Should We Heed Wilkerson's Warning?
When I was a kid, I read about David Wilkerson who took to Gospel to the gangs of New York. I even saw the movie "The Cross and the Switchblade" that was made about him. Many know about that, but most don't know what happened in his church just eight years ago.
In the fall of 2001, Pastor David Wilkerson, of Times Square Church in New York City, was warned by God that a calamity was coming. For six weeks they felt an intense burden and enormous heaviness. A critical need for intercession was so profound that Pastor Wilkerson canceled everything on the church calendar – mission's conferences, youth events and every guest speaker.
For six weeks, there wasn't a sermon. Instead, there was intercession for our nation with weeping and repentance. They knew something was coming and that something was bad. And that something was soon. So they prayed. And prayed … and prayed.
Then Wilkerson felt God telling him something that seemed rather bizarre. He felt God telling him to make sandwiches – lots of sandwiches. What were they for? Who would eat them? That part wasn't clear, but his church did what they believed God was telling them anyway.
And on the 10th of September they stayed up all night making hundreds and hundreds of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. By morning they had about 2,000 sandwiches. At 8:46 a.m. the first plane hit the World Trade Center and Times Square Church was ready to feed and minister to rescue workers and victims of our nation's worst attack.
Making sandwiches all night is a strange thing to do. If someone told me to stay up all night making sandwiches, I'd probably tell them they were crazy. But if David Wilkerson says he's heard something from God today, I think we'd be crazy not to listen.
He now says he feels the same thing he felt leading up to the attack by radical Islam. In an "URGENT MESSAGE" dated March 7, 2009, Wilkerson said:
AN EARTH-SHATTERING CALAMITY IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN. IT IS GOING TO BE SO FRIGHTENING, WE ARE ALL GOING TO TREMBLE – EVEN THE GODLIEST AMONG US.
For 10 years I have been warning about a thousand fires coming to New York City. It will engulf the whole megaplex, including areas of New Jersey and Connecticut. Major cities all across America will experience riots and blazing fires – such as we saw in Watts, Los Angeles, years ago.
There will be riots and fires in cities worldwide. There will be looting – including Times Square, New York City. What we are experiencing now is not a recession, not even a depression. We are under God's wrath. In Psalm 11 it is written:
… God is judging the raging sins of America and the nations. He is destroying the secular foundations.
The prophet Jeremiah pleaded with wicked Israel, "God is fashioning a calamity against you and devising a plan against you. Oh, turn back each of you from your evil way, and reform your ways and deeds. But they will say, It's hopeless! For we are going to follow our own plans, and each of us will act according to the stubbornness of his evil heart" (Jeremiah 18:11-12).
In Psalm 11:6, David warns, "Upon the wicked he will rain snares (coals of fire) … fire … burning wind … will be the portion of their cup." Why? David answered, "Because the Lord is righteous" (v. 7). This is a righteous judgment – just as in the judgments of Sodom and in Noah's generation.
WHAT SHALL THE RIGHTEOUS DO? WHAT ABOUT GOD'S PEOPLE?
First, I give you a practical word I received for my own direction. If possible lay in store a 30-day supply of non-perishable food, toiletries and other essentials. In major cities, grocery stores are emptied in an hour at the sign of an impending disaster.
… I will behold our Lord on his throne, with his eye of tender, loving kindness watching over every step I take – trusting that he will deliver his people even through floods, fires, calamities, tests, trials of all kinds.
Note: I do not know when these things will come to pass, but I know it is not far off. I have unburdened my soul to you. Do with the message as you choose.
Warren Buffett has said that our economy has "fallen off a cliff." With the election of the most pro-abortion president (and Congress) in history, there's no question that we deserve God's judgment.
Just yesterday, Barack Obama signed an executive order to use children for spare parts. So much for defending the "least of these," as he so often quoted during his campaign. Cannibalizing the weak to help the strong. And by the way, don't believe everything you hear in the news – Obama didn't say he was against cloning. He said he was against "reproductive" cloning. Killing a new life after cloning one is another matter entirely: welcome to Obama's "Brave New World."
The bottom line is that we are economically and morally bankrupt. And it's reported that Iran now has all they need to build nukes.
So, when the guy who made the 2,000 sandwiches on Sept. 10 warns us: "AN EARTH-SHATTERING CALAMITY IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN," I think we would do well to heed it. And follow the words Wilkerson quotes from the prophet Jeremiah and "turn back each of you from your evil way, and reform your ways and deeds."
