Borderline Personality Disorder–Reaching Out to the Depressed–Christ and the Man-Who-Lived-in-the-Tombs-and-Cut-Himself

The other day I happened onto a blog by a person who says she has BPD–“borderline personality disorder and other mental illnesses as well.”  As I read her post entitled “I Am Worthless, Pointless, and Hopeless,” I saw how her condition was destroying her.  She confessed that she was contemplating suicide and showed photos of her cutting herself with a razor blade and yearning to end her emotional misery through taking her own life.

I immediately thought of the time that Christ encountered “a man with an unclean spirit, who was dwelling in the tombs.”  He was “always, night and day…in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones.”  Christ went on to cast the unclean spirit out of the man, who later was found “sitting, and clothed, and in his right mind.”  The man even wanted to go with Him.  But Christ told him to “tell them how great things the Lord has done for you, and has had compassion on you” (Mark 5: 1-19).

And so I was moved to write this comment to her post: 

My darling girl,

There is another way to end all the pain and misery besides offing the physical body.  The death of the old self, the old ego, the old nature that we were born with, that old blue monkey crouched on our shoulder, screaming in our ear to do bad things to ourselves and others–yes, that selfish old adamic nature must die–not the body, mind you–the old heart inside of us, the old spirit that we have always been–that must die. 

I searched for 5 years desperately seeking solace and was led to the pits of nothingness.  Then, miraculously, while I tripped out on “sillysideburns” one day, it came to me: The old self had to die, not the body…I studied all the philosophies and world religions and did not find out how it is done.  

But then,  a wise man, seeing my plight, told me, “You need to die with Christ on the cross.  Just let all the bad inside of you go, by revelation, up on that cross, and let your old selfish self die.  When He died, you died.  When He was buried, you were buried, and when you truly believe that He arose from the dead, then you will arise from the dead, too.  And you will  walk in a newness of life.  You can read all about it in Romans 6 in your Bible.”

“Why doesn’t the churches teach this?  Because I know they don’t.”

The wise man replied, “Most of them don’t have the truth about real deliverance from sin, which like a serpent, coils around our inner being and has us enslaved. But this truth whereof I speak will deliver you, once and for all.  You are enslaved for now.  Follow my words and you’ll be free from the bondage you are suffering.”

And so, after reading all the books from the East and the West with no surcease from the emotional pain I was experiencing, I did it.  And a complete change happened in my life.  The drink, the smoke (of all kinds), the obsession with music, the womanizing, the cursing, the depression, et al, left.  And it has never come back in all these 40 years. 

I hear your cry, little one.  Read more here on my blog, ImmortalityRoad.wordpress.com

Bob Chapman: Deflationary Depression Coming Soon After Inflation

Bob Chapman is forecasting some dark times for all of us.  The world economy is going belly-up as evidenced by the the economic collapse of several countries.  He writes:

“The collapse of currencies and nations won’t happen overnight, because their demise has been planned, and a subtle collapse is in process. Our guess is that next year is when the collapse will finally take place followed by one of the greatest deflationary depressions of all time. During the last 2-1/2 years all the toxic investments have been and will continue to be transferred from the Illuminist banks, brokerage houses, insurance companies and transnational conglomerates to the public.

“The Federal Reserve is the repository for this junk, which includes Treasuries and Agencies. That means the public foots the bill. Every government and bank in the world will be affected. This magical game of 3-card-Monte will never work and the Illuminists know it won’t work. That is why they have war on demand to distract the public and to escape punishment for the devastating thing they have brought upon mankind.

“What we are facing is as bad if not worse than the collapse of the Lombard system in Venice in 1348, the year of the plague and the collapse of the Hanseanic League in the 1600s, the creation of the Medici’s. For starters we already have 19 bankrupt or near bankrupt major countries and many others that will be pulled into the vortex of financial and economic calamity. In each country we see the Illuminists doing their evil work, legends in their own minds, in a system that they know cannot survive. They are waiting for orders to pull the plug in each and every country. These masters of the universe all know that prosperity cannot be created by printing money and issuing credit indefinitely. They know full well that such a system cannot survive…

“The idea of too big to fail will persist even after any deflationary collapse. Nothing will change unless the elitists want it to change – the concept is at the base of power in the financial world. This finance bubble can only be disrupted by the failure of national economies. There are 19 in that position presently, and what it boils down to is whether and when these elitists want to pull the plug on liquidity and seriously want to enter a deflationary era. For the time being, over the next 18 months, inflation and perhaps hyperinflation will prevail. Politicians are 90% in the pockets of these people, so unless we can unseat more than half of the incumbents in Congress, the elitist grip on our society will prevail. In the meantime it is inflation and or hyperinflation followed by deflation this year and next year…

“Just as in the 1930s the Federal Reserve will eventually take us into a deflationary depression. That is what Greece was all about. The table is being set for the end of inflation probably within the next two years…

“We see a general contraction of credit worldwide and unless reversed the inevitable will unfold. What is even more dangerous than in the 1930s is the enormous leverage that exists today. When this come down it will be with a thundering roar. That is because few have the ability to pay. It is totally inconceivable that the US government can pay back its liabilities. That means that other nations that hold 60-1/2% of their foreign exchange in US dollars will take tremendous losses from which they won’t easily recover. China and Japan, along with Middle East oil producers, will take unbelievable losses. All creditors will be big losers.

“In this wringer no nation seems to want to reduce spending or is prepared for any kind of austerity. Greece is a good example. Each day sees more and more demonstrations. No one wants to take the economic and financial pain. The good days are supposed to go on endlessly. Not only does the public not want reduced employment, but they also do not want increased taxation. What is extremely interesting is that those in charge of monetary theory at the Fed know that monetary inflation does not work. They also know that the minute they can no longer control deflation with inflationary monetary policy the game is over. The Fed and other central banks are currently playing a very dangerous game. That is keeping inflation up, but only enough to stop hyperinflation. This is like sitting on the edge of a knife. One false move the game is over. Global credit is evaporating and the Fed and others are attempting at the same time to remove some of the excess in the system. We do not think it will work. If it does not work it is depression for many years to come.”  [http://theinternationalforecaster.com/International_Forecaster_Weekly/Pondering_Our_Collapse_While_We_Watch_Others_Fall

Pretty dark stuff.  Our initial reaction is to slay the messenger, laugh scornfully, or make like an ostrich.  What we need to do is check out the track record.  Was Bob Chapman right before?  If so, we better listen.  KWH

The Cure for Depression

I have found a surefire cure for depression.  It is simple, natural–well, it is really spiritual–and it is free.  No money, clinics, or doctors needed.  The only physician involved in this cure  is the Great Physician.

The cure?  Depression is cured when the sufferer just sits down and thanks God for his blessings.  For a state of depression and a grateful heart cannot co-exist.  There is no such thing as a depressed praiser of God.

As the Savior taught, at the bottom of most maladies we will find a spiritual cause.  Think about it.  When was the last time you saw someone depressed, sitting there on their couch and saying to you, “My friend.  Thank you for coming to visit.  I was just thinking about you.  You know, I thank God for the wonderful friends and family I have.”  That grateful heart cannot utter a depression-filled negative thought.  A depressed grateful person is an oxymoron.  Those two cannot go together.  Impossible.

Depression, sadness, and worry spring from self-centered  thinking.  A depressed person only thinks of themselves.  It all centers on self.  Woe is me! they will say.  Self-pity, fear of what others think, and selfish thoughts cannot exist in a mind and heart that is thankful to God.  It is impossible.

So what can the depressed do?  They simply must stop the negative thinking, just for a moment.  Then think about God and say, “Thank you, God, for _________________.”  Everyone can fill in the blank with one thing.  Sunshine, air, food, a son, a daughter, a wife that has stuck with them through thick and thin, a husband who works and brings home bread and milk.  Hey, fill in the blank with something, and in that very instant of thanksgiving, the depression begins to lift.

The darker the hour, the more need to thank Him.  “In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus (Yahshua) concerning you” [1].  Everything.  The “good” and the “bad.” 

For we must realize that God has diliberately built in hardships and sufferings, so that our belief in Him may be purified [2], and that joy may abound within us.  But most people get down, blame others, or blame themselves, instead of seeing this truth: “Acknowledge Him in all our ways, and He shall direct our paths” [3].

We then, should realize that when negativity attacks our minds through self-centered thoughts bringing on depression,  we should simply thank God.  For depression is caused by a spiritual thought that cannot co-inhabit a grateful mind.      Kenneth Wayne Hancock

Peter Schiff: Economic Predictions for America, 2009-2012

We had better listen to Peter Schiff.  He predicted the stock market crash of 2008 and the real estate bubble bursting.  Here are his predictions for the immediate future, including 2009-2012:

“So, the question is, what are going to be the consequences of what we’re doing now?

“And what I think is going to happen is that, ultimately, people like the Chinese and the rest of the world — the Saudis and the Japanese and everybody else — they’re going to figure this out, and they’re not going to want to play this game any more. We’ve got them conned right now.

“In my book, in Crash Proof, I compared it to Tom Sawyer. You know, there was that passage in Tom Sawyer where Tom gets everybody, all the kids in the neighborhood, to whitewash his fence. And he gets them to pay for the privilege of doing his chores.

“And when Mark Twain wrote that passage, he probably had no idea that it would one day form the basis for the entire global economy. But we’ve got the world painting our fences. Like they don’t have their own fences that need painting.

“But the world is not going to accept this, this economy. You had Hillary Clinton from when she went over to China, a couple weeks ago, to get them, to beg them to buy our bonds.

“She’d tell them, “We’re all in this together.” And basically this is what she tells the Chinese: “You need to take money away from your citizens and loan it to us, so we can give it to our citizens so they can use it to buy products made in your company to keep your people employed.” That’s the deal that we’re making with them.

“Now, what the Chinese should say to Clinton is, “You know what, I got a better idea. Why don’t we just leave our money with our own people and then they can use the money to buy their own products. That way we get to keep our stuff.”

“The way it is now, we get all the stuff and all they get is the jobs. Well, what good are jobs without stuff? That’s slavery.

“So they’re going to figure it out. And what’s going to happen is they’re not going to buy our bonds, and the Fed’s going to start buying all the bonds, and the dollar’s going to plunge. And this crisis is going to end up being a currency crisis. And when it becomes a currency crisis, then you’re going to have higher consumer prices and you’re going to have higher interest rates.

“Right now, we’re creating a lot of inflation. A lot of people are talking about, “Oh, there’s not inflation, it’s deflation.” That’s all nonsense. Real-estate prices are falling because they’re too high. Stock prices are falling. But that’s not deflation. That’s just falling prices. There is no contraction of the money supply, it’s growing like crazy.

“And this crisis is going to end up being a currency crisis.

“But the expansion of the money supply is not immediately showing up in rising prices for commodities or consumer goods, because there are other temporary factors that are pushing prices down at the same time inflation is pushing prices up. You’ve got deleveraging; you’ve got bankruptcies, going-out-of-business sales; you’ve got a lot of companies liquidating their inventory; and you have the dollar strong.

“And what happened was, paradoxically, when this crisis began, money flowed into America instead of fleeing America, which it will do ultimately. Can you imagine there’s a giant explosion and everybody’s running towards the blast? That’s what’s going on.

“And when people look around the world and they say, “Well, people are coming to America because as bad as it is every place else, it’s so much worse here.” That’s nonsense. That’s just what they’re saying to explain it. Just like they tried to justify the real-estate bubble or the Internet bubble. That’s all nonsense.

“The reason it’s so bad in the rest of the world is because they loaned us so much money and we can’t pay them back, and now they’re losing, based on their bad loans.

“And what’s really causing the global credit crunch is that we’re borrowing so much money right now, we’re crowding out everybody else. The fact that people are loaning us so much money means that private businesses around the world can’t get capital. Why? Because it’s all going to the US government, that’s why.

“So the world is suffering, not because our economy is collapsing, but because they’re foolishly trying to prop it up.

“And when they figure this out, then we’re going to get a real economic crisis. Because when the dollar starts to plunge — and it will — then we’re going to see prices rising, sharply, for consumer goods, and interest rates rising.

“And if we think we have problems now, wait till we see how much worse they get when we throw rising consumer prices and rising interest rates into the mix. And there’s nothing the government’s going to be able to do about it.

“Right now, unemployed people are getting the benefit of lower prices. Imagine when you’re out of work and your prices are going up, because that’s what’s going to happen. And then this is going to be a real economic crisis and then we’re going to be in for very, very difficult choices.

“And, unfortunately, the worst-case scenario is one that is looking increasingly more likely, which is hyperinflation. And if we get that, that’s where nobody will lend us money.

“And, so, the Fed buys all the bonds in order to keep interest rates down and to maintain deficit spending. And, then, the velocity money really starts to pick up. Nobody is going to want our money — not even American citizens will want our money and they will try to spend it as quickly as they can.

“The government might try to keep it together a little bit longer, with regulation. Maybe we’ll have capital controls. Maybe they’ll make it illegal for American citizens to do what I’m doing with my clients right now — buying foreign currencies, foreign stocks. Maybe they’ll make it illegal to buy gold.

“As prices really start to contract, to escalate, private parties will try to make contracts with payment in gold or other currencies. Maybe the government will make that illegal. There might be stores or people that actually don’t want to accept dollars because their value is dropping too rapidly. The government will make that illegal.

“And that means that we’ll have a black market. That means if you want to buy something, you’ll have to buy it on the black market, just like they did in the Soviet Union. The only reason you could buy anything there was because you bought it illegally.

‘A lot of these things are going to happen. I think early on, probably even in Barack Obama’s first term of office, I think we’re going to have price controls.

‘I think prices will be rising so rapidly, maybe even by next year, that they’re going to impose price controls on a number of products; probably energy, probably gasoline, probably milk, bread. And we’re repeating all the mistakes of the 1930s. We might as well repeat the mistakes of the 1970s.

‘And, so, when they put on price controls, what’s that going to mean? Shortages, power blackouts, long lines for gas, long lines for food. A lot of things are going to happen, I just mention that. Everybody now, of course, is talking about the 1930s and saying, “Oh, no, we can’t repeat the mistakes of the ’30s.” Well, that’s exactly what we’re doing.” ***

Most will not heed Peter Schiff’s advice; they will continue to go headlong over the cliff, following the other sheeple.  We have been warned.  There will be a few who will study out the warnings and make appropriate moves to not only preserve their wealth, but also prosper.  “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge,” said Yahweh through his prophet for that  hour.  And it is through this economic knowledge that we can make it through the hard times.  Kenneth Wayne Hancock

The Truth About the World Depression–Who Is Doing What?

It is so complicated–understanding this terribly deep recession/depression that we all find ourselves in.  What is really happening?  Who did this mess?  And why?   And more importantly, where is it all headed, and how can we prepare?  Bob Chapman of the International Forecaster, puts it in a  nutshell for us:

“In the financial markets, whenever you have losers, you also have winners. Someone sold the losing asset to someone else, receiving full value for it before the loss was incurred, with full value often being a fraudulent and fictitious figure, calculated with mark-to-model values based on bogus assumptions and even more bogus financial ratings and appraisals.

“The winners are always the Illuminist banks, investment banks and brokerage houses, who sold bogus paper at full value, and whose executives and employees take all the profits off the table via salaries and bonuses before the losses come back to haunt them when things like SIV’s and municipal auction rate securities.

“The bailouts are intended to prevent such losses from hitting Illuminist creditors by transferring the losses to the taxpayers, whose government creates money out of thin air to fund the bailout of such losses. The resulting monopoly money will eventually result in hyperinflation, the collapse of the dollar, the loss of the reserve status of the dollar, the downgrading of US treasury bonds, and, via higher interest rates and risk re-evaluation that will become necessary to bring this profligate flow of monopoly money under control, the collapse of the bond market, the real estate market, and the hundreds of trillions in interest rate swaps.

“The thermonuclear financial meltdown cometh, so be ready with gold, silver and their related assets. What has transpired thus far is just the tip of the iceberg that will send the US Titanic down to Davy Jones Locker.”

For another lucid voice explaining how our futures have been squandered,  listen to the prescient Peter Schiff here: http://socioecohistory.wordpress.com/2009/02/07/peter-schiff-on-us-economy/

We, the sons and daughters of God, must know the truth about what is happening on the world economic stage, for this depression will inevitably lead the world into the One World Government prophesied in the book of Revelation.  “They” always start with control of the money–then they go on to the “souls of men.”   Our money will fail, as it did in Egypt, in the time of Joseph and his brothers.  Then the masses will have to play the bankers’ game to “buy, sell, or trade,” in order to survive during the Great Tribulation Period, which the church will have to go through.  KWH

World Economic Collapse Seen Through God’s Eyes

This economic disaster must be seen through the spiritual lens of the Scriptures. “The love of money is the root of all evil,” said the apostle Paul. It has always been about loving money for the evil one and his breed. To wit, the “thirty pieces of silver,” the “taking of the widows’ houses,” the lust and greed of the filthy “moneychangers” who the Savior drove out of the temple–symbolically the place where all of their ilk are banished to.

Woe Unto You Rich Men

But we can take heart in this: “Woe unto you rich men, who heap treasure together for the last days” (James 5: 1-3). In the end, this present world economic system will collapse, a la the “merchants” {read “international bankers”} lamenting the crash of “Mystery Babylon the Great” (Rev. 18: 11-13).

What God Gets out of the World Economic Collapse

This notwithstanding, my brothers and sisters, it is not just the survival of us and our families that we should think on. Yes, that comes first. “He that does not provide for his family is worse than an infidel.”  That is our duty.  But to answer our “high calling” that God has placed on us, we must widen our spiritual lens so that we see all this from God’s view–What does He say He will get out of the economic depression and the ensuing world government? Out of the ashes, caked with the tears of His chosen ones, He will forge a body of “many sons and daughters” that He will “bring unto glory.”

God is sovereign. He is in total control of the Satanic Illuminist minions in the earth today. He is allowing them to do their thing.  He is stirring the cauldron; make no mistake. The “most High rules in the kingdom of men and gives it {man’s governments} to whomsoever He will, and sets up over it the basest of men” (Daniel 4: 17, 32) {See https://immortalityroad.wordpress.com/2008/05/16/politicians-are-the-basest-of-men-according-to-bible/ ).

God’s Eternal Purpose

I know.  I wouldn’t have wrote it like that either, for His “ways are not our ways; His thoughts are not our thoughts.” Nevertheless, we must get His “eyesalve” and anoint our spiritual eyes so that we may see things the way He sees them–through the prism of His eternal purpose:  HE WANTS TO REPRODUCE HIMSELF IN A SPIRITUAL ARMY of many sons and daughters!  Gideon’s army in the Book of Judges is a type of this.

And those who lack this knowledge will be fighting our adversaries blindly, merely “beating the air,” flailing about, not really knowing what God is doing. Some of you, of course, know of what I speak. To you I say, Keep walking in the light, and feed His lambs and sheep.

I have written two books that you may read on-line at fthe top of this page.  One, “The Unveiling of the Sons of God,” is dedicated to the future sons and daughters of God, His princes and princesses–the heirs and future rulers of the soon-coming Kingdom of God. Clothed in immortality, they will stride forth in the Spirit and power of the Great One, and will pick up the pieces after Tribulation of what is left of this old world, and together as one, they will be His ambassadors and viceroys in the earth–one Spirit, one faith (God’s), one hope, one God, in all and through all of them. Wow.

Thank you for all of your efforts and love to God’s people. You are the salt of the earth, above the curve, for He has guided you onto this hour’s stage. Continue in His love.  Kenneth Wayne Hancock

A Sword Coming on the Land–The World Economic Collapse

A sword is coming on the land, a sword that is swiftly cutting asunder our financial dreams of a comfortable retirement in peace and tranquility.  But we are asleep and need to heed the warning alarms being sounded by a few.

We are headed to the culmination of a takeover of our earth by dark nefarious forces.  In order for their plans to take full effect, the money must fail before the One World Government prophesied in the Bible comes to pass.  The trillionare families of this world who pull the strings of the puppet presidents, prime ministers, and premiers–they have engineered this collapse.

And we are in the throes of a dying world economy.  The lapdog media, controlled by these rich men, sit idly by and do not bark to sound the alarm to warn the people of the coming disaster.

But don’t take my word on it.  Listen to Bob Chapman of the International Forecaster, one of the few:

“A new stimulus package of $800 billion to $1 trillion isn’t going to solve the problem. It is a package that should have happened two years ago, but our government, Wall Street, banking, economists and analysts refused to recognize the recession that began 23 months ago. It wasn’t politically acceptable and professionals were intimated from calling the economic situation what it was and is. Most still have not publicly declared recession.

“The package will come and go. A quick jolt will be delivered to the economy lasting six months to a year. It avoids addressing the systemic problems. No jobs and a purging of the system. That will come later with currency controls and debt default. Remember, the US bond market is ten times the size of the US stock market and if the flow of funds in and out of the country is curtailed the financial world will be bedlam and the world economy will probably collapse. Even with devaluation and a default, who will buy Treasury paper? That means debt internally will be all monetization and the US will be Weimarized.

“We are not going to say much at this juncture about deflation and what will happen when it arrives. All we will say is that it will be horrible. That is why your gold and silver coins, freeze dry and dehydrated foods, gardens, water filters and ammo and weapons are so important.

“They are your insurance policy to survival. Prices on everything will plunge 80% or 90%, as will income and the value of fiat Federal Reserve notes. The once rich will suddenly become poor and you will survive. This will happen worldwide. When the world bond market collapses it will make the stock market and real estate collapses look trivial. All we can say is that worldwide more than $100 trillion will be lost and the world economic and financial system will come crashing down. The clue will be when foreigners finally stop buying US government debt”

( http://www.theinternationalforecaster.com/International_Forecaster_Weekly/The_Smell_Of_Panic_In_The_Air_For_The_Economy ).

We as God’s children are not called to be cannon fodder but  overcomers and  survivors of what this world system throws at us.  We need to wise up, look around, do the research, be frugal, and we will fulfill our calling as His sons and daughters.   Kenneth Wayne Hancock,  https://immortalityroad.wordpress.com
