In the years ahead of us, American wealth, power and prestige—and the vaunted "American lifestyle"—will never be the same.
Most Americans have always assumed that—even during terrible wars or financial upheavals—"things will get better" within a few years. So far, this has indeed been the case. We have always "muddled through" somehow, and it has worked out so that our children and grandchildren could have a better lifestyle than we had—at least in physical things and physical comfort.
However, thoughtful observers are beginning to realize that this situation is coming to an end. I want to warn all of you subscribers that in the years ahead of us, American wealth, power and prestige—and the vaunted "American lifestyle"—will never be the same.
For the prophesied "time of Jacob's trouble" (Jeremiah 30:7), about which we have written so often, is now beginning to come upon us as never before. The American and British-descended peoples of the United States, Canada, Britain, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa are now experiencing the beginning stages of a time of national chastisement from a loving God who wants to "wake us up before it is too late!" Our high-living, heavy-drinking, drug-taking, fornicating, adulterous and perverted lifestyles—if continued indefinitely—would destroy the bodies and minds of our children and grandchildren.
So, it appears that God has said: "Enough!"
We had plenty of "early warning signs"—through the shocking events of September 11, 2001, the continuing terrorist attacks, and the growing hatred of America and Britain around the world because of the Iraq war. All of these have had an impact, but nothing like we are now experiencing. For the virtual collapse of the entire international financial system—with the primary blame for this being placed squarely on the United States—is destined to speed us quickly toward the final scenario that our Creator prophesied millennia ago.
Notice this sobering news item: "The U.S. government is prepared to provide more than $7.76 trillion on behalf of American taxpayers after guaranteeing $306 billion of Citigroup Inc. debt yesterday. The pledges, amounting to half the value of everything produced in the nation last year, are intended to rescue the financial system after the credit markets seized up 15 months ago. The unprecedented pledge of funds includes $3.18 trillion already tapped by financial institutions in the biggest response to an economic emergency since the New Deal of the 1930s, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The commitment dwarfs the plan approved by lawmakers, the Treasury Department's $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program. Federal Reserve lending last week was 1,900 times the weekly average for the three years before the crisis" (Bloomberg News, November 24, 2008).
Nineteen hundred times the previous weekly average! This truly massive outpouring of money—mainly "printing press" money backed by nothing—is laying the foundation for a massive devaluation of the American dollar, just as happened to the German mark during the Weimar Republic. Soon, within a very few years, the dollar may be regarded as "funny money" by other nations. This will drastically lower the standard of living for all Americans, and imported products will skyrocket in price. God is beginning to humble us and "break the pride of our power" (Leviticus 26:19) as never before!
As we have explained many times, the Eternal God told our forefathers: "But it shall come to pass, if you do not obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments and His statutes which I command you today, that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you: Cursed shall you be in the city, and cursed shall you be in the country. Cursed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl…. The alien who is among you shall rise higher and higher above you, and you shall come down lower and lower. He shall lend to you, but you shall not lend to him; he shall be the head, and you shall be the tail. Moreover all these curses shall come upon you and pursue and overtake you, until you are destroyed, because you did not obey the voice of the Lord your God, to keep His commandments and His statutes which He commanded you" (Deuteronomy 28:15–17, 43–45).
Indeed, other nations must now "lend" the U.S. increasing hundreds of billions of dollars. At some point, this will stop. Creditors will begin to demand payment. What will America pay them with? For the nation will essentially be broke! At that point, America's creditors will begin to join in a concerted effort to bring America down, and to carry out God's prophecy that the modern descendants of the nations of Israel, especially the sons of Joseph—America and the British-descended peoples—would be attacked and conquered and eventually taken into national slavery. In a prophecy written long after the original (and at that time the only) captivity of the House of Israel, God foretold: "Now these are the words that the Lord spoke concerning Israel and Judah. For thus says the Lord: 'We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace. Ask now, and see, whether a man is ever in labor with child? So why do I see every man with his hands on his loins like a woman in labor, and all faces turned pale? Alas! For that day is great, so that none is like it; and it is the time of Jacob's trouble, but he shall be saved out of it. 'For it shall come to pass in that day,' says the Lord of hosts, 'That I will break his yoke from your neck, and will burst your bonds; foreigners shall no more enslave them.

What will happen to the U.S. as worldwide financial turmoil continues? Note what one Russian expert is forecasting:
"A leading Russian political analyst has said the economic turmoil in the United States has confirmed his long-held view that the country is heading for collapse, and will divide into separate parts.
Professor Igor Panarin said in an interview with the respected daily Izvestia published on Monday: 'The dollar is not secured by anything. The country's foreign debt has grown like an avalanche, even though in the early 1980s there was no debt. By 1998, when I first made my prediction, it had exceeded $2 trillion. Now it is more than 11 trillion. This is a pyramid that can only collapse.'
The paper said Panarin's dire predictions for the U.S. economy, initially made at an international conference in Australia 10 years ago at a time when the economy appeared strong, have been given more credence by this year's events.
When asked when the U.S. economy would collapse, Panarin said: 'It is already collapsing. Due to the financial crisis, three of the largest and oldest five banks on Wall Street have already ceased to exist, and two are barely surviving. Their losses are the biggest in history. Now what we will see is a change in the regulatory system on a global financial scale: America will no longer be the world's financial regulator.'…. He even suggested that 'we could claim Alaska—it was only granted on lease, after all.' Panarin, 60, is a professor at the Diplomatic Academy of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and has authored several books on information warfare" (Ria Novosti, November 24, 2008).
Dear subscriber, if there has ever been a time when we at Tomorrow's World should warn you, in the name of Jesus Christ, to get your financial house—and especially your spiritual house—in order, this is it! Jesus Christ warned all of us in this powerful end-time prophecy which you and I all need to heed: "So you also, when you see these things happening, know that the kingdom of God is near. Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all things take place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away. 'But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man'" (Luke 21:31–36).
May God give you understanding. May God give you the faith and the courage to act on His Truth at this momentous time in human history.
