Is doomsday fast approaching? We are living on borrowed time, by Alan Franklin.

Readers will know that I have been warning of the coming great crash – the crash of cash – for over eight years, since we wrote Goodbye America, Goodbye Britain, in 2006. I was in America watching the predicted stock market disaster unfold in 2008 and thought “this is it.” I was wrong. My thesis was right, but I didn’t bargain for the creation of trillions of Dollars and Pounds out of thin air - funny money. This has since kept the rest of the world’s economy afloat. The book is still relevant and available from our web shop:

The situation is again becoming serious and this time there will be no cash cascade to solve it. The Greater Depression is surely coming, leading rapidly to a one-world electronic currency, one world government, the New World Order – and Antichrist. The breakdown of society is all around and, once the spiritual and moral state of the nations reaches crisis level, which it has, collapse will follow. It always has, to civilizations down through history.

I explain how this fits precisely into Bible prophecy to any church or organization in Britain,America or Canada which invites me and I will be in the USA this summer. Time is short and people need to be warned.

We are in a phony war time. There are distant rumbles but most people carry on, many sedated by sport and soap operas. In the real world we face:

  • War, in the Middle East and elsewhere
  • Financial meltdown and the collapse of currencies
  • Food shortages, which may be serious.
  • Societal breakdown and civil unrest
  • An increase in moral depravity, persecution of true Christians in the west as well as the rest of the world and a move towards a one world religion, under the guise of “inclusiveness” and “tolerance.”

Much of this is designed to usher in the Man of Sin, who lurks in the wings of world affairs, awaiting his call to be the strong man with the answers. This is a watchman’s warning, like the one I am giving to our church fellowship this Sunday and at Christchurch on Tuesday.

We need not despair. When these things happen we are to look up, for our redemption draws near. We don’t know the date of the Rapture but we certainly know the season. We are living in the season of the Lord’s return, an event which could occur before I finish writing this.

I am not planning for a long term future on earth, not just because I am 68! The Rapture could happen any time and nothing in prophecy needs to occur before this astounding event, which will stir the world to turmoil and bring New Age explanations to the fore.

Should we panic and lay in a stock of survival gear, dried food and ammo (if in America!) ? I see nothing in scripture which indicates this is a wise course of action. We should use our resources, not least of time, wisely. We should lay up treasure in heaven by telling people the Lord is coming back - are you ready? That’s the true preparation.

I am convinced that the Rapture will be pre-tribulation, before the coming seven year time of the greatest distress in world history, the period the Jews know as “the time of Jacob’s troubles.” I often talk about this and today read an article which sums up the dire financial state of the world.

All our troubles stem from a turning away from God’s word, and people are so smug and anti-God that they will not even entertain the notion that our troubles, our foul weather and much else are judgments from God. I believe they are. There are many Biblical precedents for this, in Israel and elsewhere, especiallyAmerica– in fact every time the USA does something which harms Israel or sanctions perversions like so-called "gay marriage."

I am now introducing an article by Chuck Baldwin, an American pastor with many interesting thoughts. I think our exit plan is The Rapture but agree that a little planning ahead of what will certainly be tough times prior to that is no bad thing. Here’s Chuck:

Have An Exit Plan” by Chuck Baldwin, February 13, 2014

Matt Drudge, owner and publisher of the “Drudge Report,” recently tweeted a cryptic warning to his readers, “Have an exit plan.” Here is how Susan Duclos reported the story in

“The economic indicators are bad, markets, the weakening dollar, banks preventing large withdrawals, news of China banks halting all cash transfers, in fact, economies across the globe are failing, and much more has led to a simple, four word Tweet from American political commentator and the creator and editor of the Drudge Report, Matt Drudge, that chillingly states ‘Have an exit plan.’”

Duclos also wrote, “Drudge’s words should be a warning to everyone, it is coming, it is almost here and ‘have an exit plan’ ready.”

The Drudge Report is one of the finest news sources on the Web. Matt is well connected. This is the first time I have known  him to write such a warning - as mysterious as it was. No, I do not know what Matt learned to cause him to write this warning; but I do believe we should all pay attention to it.

I know it’s hard for most Americans to believe that something cataclysmic could ever happen to this country, but all of the signs on the horizon indicate that things simply cannot continue as they are for a whole lot longer. The stock markets are being manipulated by the Feds, as are the precious metals markets. Unemployment is vastly greater than what is being officially reported. Hyperinflation is a looming probability.

The Feds are printing money like there is no tomorrow. Congress is totally unwilling to control its spending habits no matter which political party is in the majority. Republicans and Democrats alike continue to smash the so-called “debt ceiling.” Federal courts are unwilling to rein-in an out-of-control White House that seems determined to trample and ignore the Bill of Rights.

Several countries are desperately trying to find a way to dump the dollar.U.S.foreign policy has made enemies of practically every nation on earth--as has the NSA’s global snooping. Our military is weaker and more demoralized than at any time in recent memory -maybe ever. China and Russiacontinue to unite militarily.

More Americans are expatriating out of the country than at any time in our country’s history. Local and State law enforcement personnel more and more resemble Storm Troopers rather than peace officers. The America that was once the most envied nation in the world is now the most despised. Government corruption at the highest levels mirrors those of banana republics. For the most part, the Church in America is impotent and irrelevant. And, culturally-speaking, honesty and decency are practically non-existent. This is a recipe for disaster.

Unlike the days of America’s first Great Depression, most of us now live in major metropolitan areas. Can one imagine what life would be like in any major city in America today should normalcy be interrupted for more than a few days? Has everyone forgotten what New Orleans looked like following Hurricane Katrina? In any kind of area-wide emergency, there are about four hours (you read it right: HOURS) worth of food and supplies on store shelves--and the same with fuel at the gas pumps. And can you imagine what that big city of yours is going to look like when the welfare checks are not delivered?

I know. I know. Every time I touch on this subject, I hear from hundreds of Christian people saying things like, “Chuck, my exit plan is Jesus is coming” or “God has it all under control,” etc. But most of those same people lock their doors at night and give their teenagers (or even children) cell phones “just in case.”

Many have AAA or similar plans for travel emergencies. Most of them have car insurance and homeowner's insurance. Most have some sort of retirement plan -or wish they did. Most of them tell their wives and daughters to avoid the “bad” parts of town.

Every day they routinely put in practice commonsense plans for their family’s safety. So, why is it every time the subject of having a plan for some sort of a national emergency comes up, they get all holier-than-thou and start talking about Jesus coming back?

First of all, most of America’s pastors and churches are doing nothing to help their people make commonsense preparations for any number of looming disasters. In fact, they are fueling the passiveness and indifference most people are drowning in. In the second place, the establishment media is deliberately hiding and obfuscating the truth.

In the third place, too many politicians are so consumed with their own lust for wealth and power, that they would do anything to keep the American people in the dark. And, yes, some of them are actually ignorant themselves and are immersed in their own darkness. And, beyond that, the American people continue to turn their backs on honest political candidates who know what’s going on and would truly make a gallant effort to turn the ship of state around. Instead they elect the same kinds of establishment elitists (regardless of party) who only want to maintain the status quo.

Ladies and gentlemen, this party is almost over. The charade is about to be exposed. Whether it be by divine judgment or the natural result of all of this corruption and graft (probably both),Americais going to be forced to pay the bills. And it’s not going to be pretty.

Government agencies are not buying up millions of rounds of hollow-point ammunition for target practice. First it was the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), then it was the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), then the Social Security Administration (SSA), then the Department of Education (DE), then the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and now it’s the U.S. Postal Service (USPS). That’s right. The Post Office is making mega-purchases of ammunition.

See this report:

US Postal Service Announces Giant Ammo Purchase

But when Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) recently introduced a bill that would have overturned a federal ban that prohibits citizens who possess concealed weapon permits from carrying them inside post offices, members of the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee voted to kill the bill--including Montana Senator Jon Tester, Arkansas Senator Mark Pryor, and Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu. Obviously, elitists love it when government employees are armed but private citizens are not.

And I can tell you for a fact that there is a host of federal law enforcement personnel--who know what is going on--that are personally leading their own families to prepare for bad times. Many economists are doing the same thing.

The Scripture states, “A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.” (Proverbs 22:3 KJV) Famous Bible commentators Karl Keil and Friedrich Delitzsch quote the verse this way: “The prudent man arises from his perceiving an evil standing before him; he sees the approaching overthrow of a decaying house, or in a sudden storm the fearful flood, and betimes [early] betakes himself to a place of safety; the simple [foolish], on the contrary, go blindly forward into the threatening danger, and must bear the punishment of their carelessness.”

Ladies and gentlemen, America’s house is decaying; there is an evil standing before us; the fearful flood will come; and the sudden storm will strike. How we respond before that happens will reveal our prudence or our foolishness. I’m with Matt Drudge: “Have an exit plan.” This is especially true if you live in or near a big city.

P.S. I highly recommend Joel Skousen’s well-researched book, “Strategic Relocation.” It is chock-full of helpful information regarding dangerous and safe places and what to do about it. Learn about Skousen’s book here:
