Shining LIGHT to a darkened world

LIGHT



                 


                                                                    2016 GLOBAL FORECAST UPDATE FOR JANUARY 2016

                                                                                                                                                              



                                                                                                                          Jan. 31, 2016

 Isaiah 21:6
"For this has YHWH said to me, Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he sees"
Ezekiel 33:7
"Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me."


 

This letter is the January update to the 2016 forecast. As stated previously we believe that 2016 continuing into 2017 will be a momentous year for humanity.

We stated in the Dec. 31, 2015 letter that the elites, as well as, everyone else will be influenced by the spirit of fear. Let’s review the following events that we believe were either induced by fear or produced fear in some capacity:

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/un-health-chief-zika-virus-is-spreading-explosively/ar-BBoOp7O?ocid=ansmsnnews11
                      

Jan. 29th           National Institute of Health: Zika virus officially a ‘pandemic’
http://yournewswire.com/zika-virus-officially-a-pandemic-national-institutes-of-health/

As we predicted last year, September, 13th    2015 would begin an increase of tensions in humanity’s global activities. We cited after this date, in that very month, the following events came to pass:

  1. Russia reportedly began building up military weaponry in Syria, and launched their first air strikes in the region, effectively beginning a proxy war with the west.
  2. Kim Davis was jailed after refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses, bringing this issue to the global forefront.
  3. The Bubonic Plague was reported in Marquette County, Michigan and Santa Fe County, New Mexico and flesh eating bacteria in Chula Vista, California.
  4. A stampede of religious worshippers during Hajj killed more than 700 pilgrims in Mecca.
  5. There were no less than one hundred and forty eight 5.0 magnitude earthquakes and above striking the earth.
  6. Unicredit (International) reported a plan to lay off 10,000;
  7. Deutsche Bank Reduced Staff by 25%; 
  8. IberiaBank closed 8 branches,
  9. Bank of America announced layoffs,
  10. Citigroup Inc. announced that it will close its remaining 17 branches in its Massachusetts’s retail bank market in January.
  11. HP announced layoffs of up to 30,000 from enterprise unit,
  12. Caterpillar reported it will lay off up to 10,000 jobs.


For January we are citing the following as further signs of the HUGE impending global economic collapse that we believe is looming that will easily rival the great depression:

During the month of September 2015, sometime after September 13th we saw some destructive forces of nature:

 1.       Hurricane Joaqin struck the Caribbean and US

2.       Typhoon Dujaun struck Asia with devastating consequences.

3.       A disastrous flood hit a town in Bodrum Turkey causing massive devastation. 

4.        Numerous mudslides, landslides, tornadoes, and flash floods caused a torrent of mayhem around the globe.

In January alone we observed the following as further signs that the forces in nature continue to intensify:

We stated that we should expect things to get pretty intense as there is a transformation on the way. We will feel the squeeze of pressure tighten on a much greater scale in 2016. 2016 into 2017 will be even more eventful than the previous year. This year carries with it a host of heavenly influences that have the potential to bring some of the biggest changes that we'll ever experience in our lifetime. Negative human emotions such as: hurt, distrust, anger etc. will come to the forefront, and be greatly magnified.

We stated that on the rise will be events causing greater anxiety, uncertainty, and even chaos in many places. Tensions, on various levels of the human experience: physical, spiritual, emotional, and mental.

The scriptures warn of such times in Matthew 24:10: “And then shall many be offended, and shall betray on another, and shall hate one another”. In II Timothy 3:1-3: “But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of righteousness, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of YHWH. ”

The following headlines give a pretty good example of the increase in negativity: “for nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.”

We stated that “this election cycle has certainly not been the norm, and it is likely that it will not become normal without outside intervention.” There were more republican candidates running for president that ever before. There has been one candidate that seems to defy all conventional rules to the process, and yet remains un-touched. Up until this point, any other candidate who would have tried to use such tactics would have probably been pressured from the race. There have been scandals involving espionage. This election process has certainly continued to be bizarre – to say the least:

These are the January updates. The era of prophetic intervention is upon us, it's time to prepare. If we have the ability to prepare physically we should do our part to become self-sufficient. In becoming self-sufficient we become less detectable and non-dependent upon the entities that governs this world at this time. Nothing takes the place of spiritual preparation. Spiritual preparation cleanses us so that we do not perish (die in our errors). When we are prepared spiritually, the physical death may still come, however we have passage to our source, as we are no longer cut off. A wise man once wrote: “The wise and prudent sees trouble coming and hides (prepares) himself” (Proverbs 22:3 and 27:12). Noah was a wise and prudent man. He saw trouble coming and made preparation by building an ark to protect himself and his family (Hebrews 11:7). What is not commonly focused on is the fact that during that time he preached the message of righteousness to others that they may also make preparation and be saved (II Peter 2:5). However the message fell on deaf ears then, as it does today with many. The message has clearly established that: “as in the days of Noah, so will it be at the coming of the son of man.” (Matthew 24:37-39). Due to misunderstanding of Holy Scriptures it is commonly thought that no one will know the day or the hour of the coming of the son of man. That is true, but only to a certain point. When YHWH was ready, He revealed the time of trouble (His day) to Noah. He promises to reveal the time of trouble (His day) to the ministers of His LIGHT (Isaiah 42:9) that they may declare His day (Psalm 9:11; 118:17; 145:6-13 Isaiah 21:6; 46:10; 66:19; Matthew 5:14-16). The only condition is that we turn from our own ways, to keeping His covenant and watch for the signs of His day, which is not a day, but rather a predetermined period of time. If we do these things He will also reveal the time of trouble to us that the day will not come upon us like a thief in the night (Revelation 3:2-3). We have declared what we see coming for 2016 and each month we are posting a monthly update for all to see what is coming according to what was seen. Please join us next month for the 2016 Global Forecast Update for February.
