UPDATED- "The 14 PREDICTIONS" + More Added
-by Andrew Strom.

Additional warnings are below. But first, I believe the most important
point that needs to be made about the current financial crisis is
that it had SPIRITUAL roots and causes – not just physical or
economic ones. Materialism, greed and selfishness are SPIRITUAL
diseases. And these had an enormous role to play in the crisis that
has unfolded. That is partly what enabled myself and others to see
what was coming. It was obvious “spiritually” that this age of
rampant self-indulgence would bear terrible fruit. We could “feel”
it and see it.

It is this ‘spiritual’ crisis in the West that is ultimately responsible
for what is happening. And it is this materialism and selfishness
that must now be stripped away. Until this purging has done its
full work, I do not believe God will allow it to end. He loves us too
much to leave us in such a state.

When it comes to these “14 Predictions” I am often reminded of
Arthur Schopenhauer’s famous saying that “All truth passes through
three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.” I guess we are getting
up to the “self-evident” stage about now, but there sure was a lot
of “ridicule” flying around in the early days!

Below is a timeline of the specific warnings that we published from
2001 to 2010. After that I will add some additional points to ponder:

SEPT 11, 2001: “The HORNS of American financial power have
fallen, have fallen…” [-About the Twin Towers].

JUNE 2003: “Revival is going to come in the midst of judgments
the like of which you’ve never seen, and God is going to touch
your economy…” (-’Thundering in Nashville’).

14 DEC 2006: “Let me make some predictions at this point, so
I can be clear about what this country [USA] is facing:
(1) Firstly, I believe it is IMPOSSIBLE to avoid Judgment…
(2) Expect a great economic crash – and expect it SOON.

MARCH 14, 2007: “Eight months ago we began to publish warnings
about the bursting of this Housing bubble, and the likely impact it
would have… saying that in many ways it would be God’s MERCY -
to shock us out of our complacency and apathy – and to cause us
to desperately seek His face.”

NOV 8, 2007: “I continue to stand by my statement of many
months ago that within 3 years this nation will be in a terrible
financial depression – possibly the worst that it has ever seen.
Right now, things are right on track to see this fulfilled.”

NOV 2007, Wisconsin USA: “This is the last good Christmas
America will have for years….
“Here’s my scenario. You can test me. You can remember what
I’m saying right now…. See if it plays out how I say. In six months
time I expect Recession in the United States. In 12 months time
I expect the beginning of a Depression.” (-AUDIO – ‘Survive the
Coming Depression – Nov 07' on Sermonindex.net).

10 MONTHS LATER – Sept/Oct 2008 – The two largest Mortgage
giants in the world (Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac) fail, the largest
Insurance Company and the largest thrift bank in the USA both
collapse, Lehman Brothers goes bankrupt (almost taking the entire
financial system with it), Money Markets reel, the Investment
banking industry crumbles, and the stock market suffers its
worst-ever one-day loss, plunging 777 points in a single day.

24 SEPT 2008: “The DEPRESSION HAS BEGUN”.

BACK-TRACK – 31 JAN 2008: “My strong belief is that, particularly
in America, this crisis is going to be WORSE than the GREAT
DEPRESSION. And it is going to last for YEARS. Other developed
nations, such as England, Ireland, Spain, Canada, Germany and
even Australasia, are going to be very hard-hit also. China, India
and much of Asia will be pounded at first, but I believe will recover
faster…. I believe that Christians in America need to face the fact
that they are about to live through one of the WORST 5 – 7 year
periods that this country has ever seen by far. And they need to
be preparing NOW.”

OCT 2008: “I am convinced this “breaking” is not merely financial
in nature. It is also aimed at the church, the media and the culture…
We are about to see another ‘Great Reformation’.” (-From Andrew’s
book, ‘SURVIVE THE DEPRESSION’, Oct 2008).

OCT 2008: “When I was down in Mississippi after Hurricane Katrina
there was one Spirit-filled Fellowship that was “thriving” in the midst
of the chaos. They had filled their sanctuary with food, clothes, and
emergency supplies of all kinds – and they were ministering to
hundreds… I cannot tell you how important this is, if we want to
“thrive” – not just “survive” – through this current crisis… So will you
be a “light shining in the darkness” during this present crisis, my
friends?” (-Book ‘SURVIVE THE DEPRESSION’, Oct 2008).

20 DEC 2008: “The WORST of the slump is set to last for… 7 years.”

10 APRIL 2009: “A “DOUBLE DIP” DEPRESSION .. The phrase
“A Double-Dip Depression” has been on my heart for many months,
so it is no surprise to see a temporary respite. But we need to be
aware that it is simply an illusion – so we don’t get lulled back to
sleep and cease to prepare for what lies ahead.

18 JUNE 2009: “We stated not long ago our belief that we are
headed for a “Double-Dip” Depression… I do believe there will be
a further ‘wave’ downwards, and we need to keep preparing – both
physically and spiritually.”

1 APRIL 2010: “If this ‘second wave down’ has not occurred by
the end of 2011 then I will need to issue a public apology to the
Body of Christ.”

FURTHER POINTS – THE ‘TIMEFRAME’: As you know, I am on
the record as stating that I believe the “worst” of the slump will
last for 7 years. People may think that, since this ‘Depression’
really began with the great collapse of late 2008, perhaps we can
expect to come out of it around the end of 2015 or so. But wait.

While I certainly acknowledge the “possibility” of 2015 – we need
to remember that we are talking about the “worst” of the slump
here. By all indications we are now entering a “second leg down”
in this crisis – and things are about to get noticeably worse.

My own view is that I expect the “worst” of this crisis to last for the
next 7 years until around 2018. And even then, I expect only a
“mild” recovery until the early 2020's – when I expect things to
start taking off again. (That is – if we survive intact).

If we look at the last two “Great Bear” markets, they both resulted
in war. The last one was 80 years ago – which ended with World
War 2. The previous one was 70 years before that – and ended
with the American Civil War. I expect this one to be ugly also.

People think it is “impossible” and ‘ridiculous’ to talk about a
breakup of the USA or war in Europe, etc. These people have not
lived through a 10-year “Bear” market. The possibility is very real,
the stresses are unbelievable, and I personally will be delighted
if we make it through the next 15 years without major armed conflict.
Even though America may be at most risk from forces “within” rather
than without, we should not even rule out war involving the US on
her own home soil. We are in an hour when anything could happen –
especially towards the end of this crisis. Civil strife will greatly increase.

RESPONSE FROM the CHRISTIANS: We have entered the time
of greatest ‘shaking’ and danger that we are likely to see in our
lifetimes. We have the choice of either cowering in fear or being
about the work of the kingdom. The true Christians will stand up
at such a time. I believe God’s call to us is very simple. His people
will be preserved if they stay focused on serving and loving God
and others. It is about as simple as that. Great shaking means
great opportunity for those in tune with Him. Please stay in prayer –
and be encouraged, my friends.

Do not allow “fear” to rule your heart. Be listening to the Spirit of
God and many spiritual victories will be won in this time. But it is
important to know what kind of period we are entering into, so we
can truly prepare our hearts. “Blessed are the peacemakers.”
