2012 left us some problems which we hope to be solved in 2013 or beyond.USA will be meeting some changes in taxes to reduce its deficit.I have been watching TV networks to show job openings and improvement in economy but most newscasts are about gun control. Gerald Celente of Trend Research Institute (I believe) still paint some gloomy scenario . Beijing as i saw on TV is having air pollution and may have to spend on air quality improvement equipments, the building of which will delay production and eat up on some of their profits which could raise prices of China made products.
There is a rumor of starting to place microchips on humans on March this year. For Bible prophecy watchers this is ominous. If this comes true and if interpretations of other related verses are right then the rapture could be very close. For those who do not know what rapture is, it is a belief that God will gather His people by snatching them from the earth to spare them from the great tribulation (which God unleashing His wrath to unbelieving world).
There will be conference on world economy on about last week of January this year in Europe.
But here is a question I would like to ask, will the world turn to man system/s to have better future ? or acknowledge that we need God after all, admitting that situations are getting out of control?
I feel that many "in the world" will pick mans system. As they are in the world (darkness). But hopefully those with one foot in and one foot out, will know/hear enough to see it unraveling and turn to Christ. I think there are many in the world today..who wanna believe..but have never experienced the intimacy available through HIM. May our Lord continue to draw His people. And may we be obedient to Him in sharing His light through a dark and gloomy world..
