STOCKS CRASH "6.66%" - What Next? -Andrew Strom. As I'm sure you have heard, on Monday the DOW Stockmarket in the USA crashed by 5.55% - and the S&P Stockmarket crashed by 6.66%. Do you notice anything unusual about those numbers? It brings to mind other strange numbers associated with this Depression. Did you know that the lowest point for the S&P 500 which it finally descended to in March 2009 was 666 points? And did you know that the worst single-day DOW drop in history occurred on Sept. 29, 2008 - a fall of 777 points in one day? All these have occurred in this downturn. I have never heard of a string of such "biblically significant" numbers occurring before. So what does it all mean? I believe that God is saying that He has His hand on these events, and there is a much larger purpose behind what is happening. I do not believe this can be mere chance. As I said in an earlier email, I believe God is using this current crisis to strip and "purge" a lot of the dross and materialism out of the church and hopefully the culture at large - ready for a move of His Spirit. I believe this process will take YEARS to complete, and we need to pray that this "scourging" does a thorough work. For if, at the end of this time, the hearts of the people still are not attentive to His Truth, I believe it will be catastrophic for the USA and the entire Western world. I do not believe we will see any kind of real Awakening without a full "purging" of this kind. Many of these things were written about in my book "SURVIVE THE DEPRESSION - The Shaking Has Begun" which we put out in 2008 - just as the first leg of this downturn was occurring. I hope to update that book in the future, but everything in there is just as relevant now as it was then. -Probably even more so!
