I received a report that an employee of Homeland Security says they are preparing to quarantine the entire country for one week, and possibly extending that for a longer period. They say they will shut down all businesses during that time, except, I suppose for the utility companies and other necessary businesses, fire stations, police, and national guard, etc.
France went on lockdown yesterday as well.
It would be prudent to prepare in case you are stuck at home for a week or two. The big thing, of course, would be food and water. I don’t anticipate that the water will be turned off, but if you don’t drink city water, you will need a filter. It may be too late already to buy bottled water, as stores are already selling out of water.
Life is full of little ironies. The price of fuel has dropped dramatically this week, but travel is restricted!
I went to lunch today at a nearly empty restaurant. I asked the manager how things were going. He told me that they were allowing no more than 10 customers into the restaurant at a time, in accordance with the government decrees.
It’s hard to see how we can avoid a lot of businesses shutting down and possibly going into bankruptcy. I don’t see how the zombie banks can weather this storm, especially Deutsche Bank, which has been on the brink of bankruptcy for a long time. Any big bank failure would surely have a chain reaction around the world within two weeks. It is important to watch the news.
The bad news is that all the markets have been manipulated and “controlled” for more than 40 years. We have not had a free market economy for a long time. The good news is that all the markets have been manipulated and “controlled” for more than 40 years. It means that the government can make it go up or down at will, and that if it goes down, they have a purpose for doing it.
Expect money to be created at a breathtaking pace. In 2008-2009 that money was given to the Wall Street banks to bail them out. Some expected to see hyperinflation, but this was avoided because the money stayed “quarantined” in the banks and big businesses. This time more of it will be injected into Main Street, but that will probably mean a higher inflationary rate, perhaps even to the point of hyperinflation.
In other words, everything will cost more, because money will have less value.
We are now at a major change in history, comparable to life before and after 911, only much more extensive. 911 took all the fun out of air travel. This quarantine could take the fun out of life. On the other side of this, life will never again be the same. Personally, I think that this crisis will be used to set the world free of the Central Banking System, owned and controlled largely by the Rothschilds and their fellow cohorts in crime. The captivity is nearing an end.
Nonetheless, it is likely that there will be some bumps along the way, and a lot of inconveniences and even hardships for many people. It is important, then, to prepare where you can and have faith in God for all things. Many will be having a faith crisis to see if it is real or just positive thinking from the soul realm.
As for ourselves, I will be leaving after this blog to pick up Darla from the hospital. She texted me earlier to let me know that today is the hospital’s last day for non-essential surgeries. She was one of the last to get it done. I was supposed to join her in her Occupational Therapy class and her Physical Therapy class, but today they banned all visitors. So I have to pick her up at the door of the hospital.
Who knows? By tomorrow I may have to do the weblogs from my home computer.
It is not hard to see the hand of God in this. Though it was the doctor himself who, on February 17, scheduled her for surgery on March 16, God was moving silently with perfect timing. We do not know if the doctors and nurses have any awareness of God’s sovereign hand in all things. But we do, and that is all that is important.
It is truly good to know by experience that God has never lost control of a situation. It is even more important to see His sovereignty work in our personal lives, because then we have evidence that we are in His hands and in His plan. He works all things together for good (Romans 8:28).
This is how we walk by faith and never in fear.
