"Merry Christmas, I haven't posted in a while......thought I'd weigh in on 2010 Economic Predictions...."
Good post Randy.  Alarmists have been running for the hills for two years while the stock market has seen double digit returns.  Those who bailed out of the market over fear, have lost a fortune. Gold hoarders seem to be un-aware that you cannot take gold to Wal Mart and buy food and supplies and once we get to a point of economic collapse, it will probably be illegal to own over a certain amount of gold.  I'd rather store food and other essential supplies than gold. Then maybe after the rapture someone in need would find the food and supplies and survive for a bit.  A lot of the economic alarmists and gold hoarders also slam the rapture and think we are crazy to think we will "escape all these things".
Plus James is clear as to what will happen to gold and silver in the last days.
James Chapter 5
1 Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming on you. 2 Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes. 3 Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days.
I believe the rapture could occur on a peaceful day, with the sun shining, the stock market up at record levels and the supermarket grocery shelves filled to capacity with people shopping and planning dinner.  I believe it is after the rapture when the real problems begin, and the rapture could actually be the catalyst that sets in motion the takeover plans that the world has today.
And add to that, that God has not given us a spirit of fear, and fear is the chief tactic of the alarmists.  The alarmists are predicting economic doom and gloom and will tell you more if you will purchase their newsletter or CD.  Its a con.  God is in control....not the alarmists.
