It is interesting to note that big corporations in America will hire out troubleshooters to spot the problems within their companies to remove obstacles that stand in the way of the growth of their businesses. Yet, in America today, both the church and the government, which merely reflect the people, will have nothing to do with such troubleshooters when it comes to being corrected in the face of a just and holy God (Deuteronomy 32:5).
Why should America listen to “Repent, for the kingdom of Heaven is at hand” (Matthew 3:2)? She has nothing to repent for! In America’s imagination, she feels that she has been delivered to do what she wills without the rule of God’s government.
13 years have come to pass since the 9/11/01 attacks on the World Trade Center towers. Americans have been left with an ‘official report’ and unanswered questions. Post 9/11 legislation has had enormous consequences for this country.
One of the biggest post 9/11 deceptions awaiting Americans following the tragedy of the attacks on the World Trade Centers was the PATRIOT ACT (an act of Congress) signed into law in 2001 by President George W. Bush. The act expands and gave to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and other federal agencies the power to search business and homes and to obtain any records without any knowledge or consent. Recently, the act has come under fire when Edward Snowden, former CIA employee and NSA contractor, exposed secret documents of how the NSA collects telephone records of virtually all Americans under the power of the Patriot Act.
Have you noticed that the stock market continues to make new highs and the 10 year treasury is making new lows; in spite of the Federal Reserve tapering program which is winding down the buying of U.S. Treasuries, with expectations of rate hikes after the November election. Yet the yield on the 10-year Treasury has fallen from 3 percent at the end of 2013 to 2.3% percent today. How can this be? Weren’t yields to go up above 3% once tapering began and stocks would go down? Especially, if you look at what happened that spring day of June 2010 when QE1 came to an end, you were left scratching your head. The S&P 500 dropped below 1,100 which was a butt ugly 15 percent. Instead we are making new highs almost every day in the S&P; with lower yields on the 10 year treasury while we are tapering. Again, how can this be?
