Tax & Spend

The government’s health care reform is just a new form of taxation and the additional entitlements will put us even deeper in debt. This double-whammy is a move toward enslaving the American people to the Federal government.

Dependence on the government for health care is a form of slavery. The forced insurance is essentially just new taxes foisted on the middle class. These increased taxes enslave us by removing our latitude to spend that money on our own choices. And the debt that the country will collectively incur as a result of this spreading the wealth around enslaves us as well. As Proverbs 22:7 says, “The rich rules over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender” (NKJ). This debt will soon cause inflation which is yet another "hidden" tax on consumers.

The Leftist vision to enslave Americans to the Federal Government was revealed in a "Freudian slip" by U.S. Rep. John Dingell (D, Michigan) on March 24th during a radio interview as he defended the delay in implementing health-care reform by saying it was necessary to “control the people.” This is on-par with Obama saying he wanted to “spread the wealth around.” It is amazing how easy it is for the truth to become known.

Is there any wonder that most people expect the US economy to fail? A recent Fox News poll found that 79 percent of voters think it’s possible the economy could collapse, including 72 percent of Democrats, 84 percent of Republicans and 80 percent of independents.

It pains me to consider this but from a prophetic standpoint, the United States must become less of an economic superpower. The Bible tells us that a world ruler also known as the Antichrist will be in power when Jesus returns to earth (Revelation 13:7-8). Before the Antichrist comes to power, the world will be ruled by ten kings (Revelation 17:12-13). The United States will need to cease being an economic superpower in order for these ten kings to emerge.

I doubt our governmental leaders even know they are decimating our economy in fulfillment of Bible prophecy. I’m sure they are pursuing some ideological vision such as saving the planet by reducing carbon emissions. Whatever their motivation is, it is setting the stage for the Tribulation. Demonic forces are getting more latitude in working behind the scenes tempting world leaders to take actions that enslave people in preparation for the Day of the Antichrist. Indeed, “evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived” (2 Timothy 3:13).

The only consolation in considering the prospects for the U.S. economy is that the events leading up to the Tribulation will be accelerated. Jesus said that the signs of His coming would be like “birth pangs” in Matthew 24:8 and Daniel 9:26 says, “the end of it shall be with a flood.” And knowing that the Rapture precedes the Tribulation is a blessing. So given the accelerating pace of prophetic developments in this world, we don’t have log to wait for our blessed hope (Titus 2:13).
