Currency Wars are Real...........A MUST WATCH VIDEO CLIP!

Currency Wars are Real

Legendary trader Yra Harris says, "The currency wars are real, and the game is on."  Harris says the global currency war is what helped Volkswagen gain market share in the last few years.  So, what is Japan doing?  It is cutting the value of its currency so Toyota will gain market share.  The currency war is also what's been driving gold higher.  Harris says, "Is gold in a bull market?  Absolutely.  Is gold a tired bull for the moment?  Absolutely. . . . I think you'd be crazy to sell because there are so many variables of uncertainty."  Harris goes on to predict, "What do I think is the most explosive event for gold?  It is the day Draghi (President of the ECB)can no longer jawbone quantitative easing.  He actually has to step up to the plate."  Harris is counting on the Fed to continue to pump out dollars.  He says, "I can go to sleep at night and know one thing–the Fed will not allow deflation."  The reason is simple, according to Harris, "We live on debt in this society.  Debt based societies cannot absorb a deflationary spiral."  AS SOON AS THE FED RUNS OUT OF OPTIONS WE WILL HAVE A REAL PROBLEM.

HERE IS THE CLIP;

It’s Been A Crazy Month.......GOOD GRAPHICS!

It's Been A Crazy Month

It's been a crazy month. So much drama and so much uncertainty … it all left investors somewhat shell shocked.

SHAKE, RATTLE & ROLL

With the Fed stating that it'll wait before cutting back on its quantitative easing (QE), it again rattled investors, raising many questions.

Memories of 2007-08 resurfaced. As you'll remember, the credit bubble burst, resulting in the collapse of Lehman Brothers and a severe crisis, which took the economy to the brink of a depression.

So yes, investors are nervous, and with good reason!

While showing some improvement, the economy is barely scraping along and all the Fed's efforts haven't done much.

Over the past year, economic growth has been the slowest ever recorded, except for when recessions were in force.

One important reason why is because banks aren't lending, despite all the Fed's easy money. As you can see on Chart 1 above, loan growth has been anemic compared to what it was at the end of previous recessions.

Instead, banks have built up their excess reserves at an astounding rate, from zero in 2008 to $2 trillion in 2013!   WHY! BECAUSE THEY KNOW THEY WILL NEED THAT AND MORE TO OFFSET ALL THE CRAP ON THEIR BOOKS ALONG WITH HIGHER RATES.

In turn, this has resulted in an ongoing decline in the velocity of money (see Chart 2 above).

Basically, this means that money isn't changing hands, which is not a good sign because the velocity measures the demand for money. This is deflationary.






GOLD BETTER THAN BONDS

This chart is so important we really want you to take a hard look at what it's telling us.

Very simply, this ratio chart compares gold to bonds. When it rises, gold is stronger than bonds. And when it declines, gold is weaker than bonds.

We call this our inflation-deflation barometer. Why?

Gold tends to rise during inflationary or generally good economic times. That's why the ratio's been rising over the past decade.

The two exceptions were in 2008 and 2011, which were periods of recession and slow growth. In both cases, the ratio declined because gold was weaker than bonds.

In other words, bonds usually outperform gold when the economy is weak and/or deflationary forces are more dominant.

This has clearly been the case over the past couple of years with the economy on thin ice.


It also means that gold is going to be stronger than bonds.

INFLATION ON THE HORIZON

Keep in mind, the potential for higher inflation is well in place. Bank reserves are massive and normally, banks only keep about 10% of their money in reserve.

So once banks start lending, inflation could pick up quickly as money moves out of the banks and into the economy.

MORE BUBBLES UPCOMING

Like the tech bubble and the real estate bubble before this, the Fed has essentially created yet another bubble.

We'll soon see how this unfolds but the markets are giving us a sneak preview. And unless we're reading it wrong, we should be in for some real changes. Stay tuned.

WHICH DRUG IS THE WORST......... A MUST SEE GRAPHIC!

WHICH DRUG IS THE WORST

A new study suggests alcohol is more harmful than heroin or crack

MOST people would agree that some drugs are worse than others: heroin is probably considered to be more dangerous than marijuana, for instance. Because governments formulate criminal and social policies based upon classifications of harm, a new studypublished by the Lancet on November 1st makes interesting reading. Researchers led by Professor David Nutt, a former chief drugs adviser to the British government, asked drug-harm experts to rank 20 drugs (legal and illegal) on 16 measures of harm to the user and to wider society, such as damage to health, drug dependency, economic costs and crime. Alcohol is the most harmful drug in Britain, scoring 72 out of a possible 100, far more damaging than heroin (55) or crack cocaine (54). It is the most harmful to others by a wide margin, and is ranked fourth behind heroin, crack, and methamphetamine (crystal meth) for harm to the individual. The authors point out that the model's weightings, though based on judgment, were analysed and found to be stable as large changes would be needed to change the overall rankings. ALCOHOL IS WHERE THE COWARDLY HIDE!

I'm afraid that too many have joined the movement of Christianity rather than having surrendered to the man of Christianity...............

HERE IS THE PROBLEM WITH THE CHURCH OF TODAY....

What Jesus Wants More than Your Service

"God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of His Son Jesus Christ our Lord." 

                                                                                                                                        1 Corinthians 1:9

Discipleship is fellowship with Christ, knowing Christ, loving Christ, abiding in Christ.

I'm afraid that too many have joined the movement of Christianity rather than having surrendered to the man of Christianity. These people are doing things for Christ, rather than sitting at the feet of Christ.

Now, there's nothing wrong with service, and we ought to serve God, but we need to learn that we must minister to Jesus Christ as His disciple before we can minister to others. Jesus values the time you spend with Him far more than the things you do for Him. Do you know that?

Carry each other's burdens..............


"Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ."

                                                                                                                     Galatians 6:2


"I have found the paradox that if I love until it hurts, then there is no hurt, but only more love." 

                                                                                                                                               Mother Teresa

Author Leo Buscaglia told about a contest he was asked to judge. The purpose of the contest was to find the most caring child.

The winner was a four-year-old child whose elderly next-door neighbor had recently lost his wife. Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.

When his mother asked him what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said, "Nothing, I just helped him cry."

The Bible tells us to mourn with those who mourn and rejoice with those who rejoice (Romans 12:15). We all have burdens to bear. But one of the ways God helps us bear them is to send us the loving comfort of other people. If you want to experience and live out God's love for you, make your heart available both to receive love and companionship from others and to be a loving presence in someone else's life. AND AMAZINGLY WE ARE ALL GOOD AT THIS IN DIFFERENT WAYS. SOME ARE ENCOURAGER'S, SOME ARE LISTENERS, SOME HAVE BOUNDLESS ENERGY AND ENTHUSIASM, SOME ARE WISE ADVICE GIVERS, SOME ARE GOOD AT JUST BEING THERE AT THE RIGHT TIME, SOME ARE MOVED BY GOD WITH A WORD OR A CARING GESTURE AND SOME ARE PARENTS, SIBLINGS OR FRIENDS THAT KNOW EXACTLY HOW TO CARE FOR THE ONE THEY LOVE. ALL COME FROM A MERCIFUL GOD.  

Father, thank You for the gift of love that You bring through others. Send me to someone that I can be of service to today. 

                               Amen

God yearns to pour out His blessing upon you.............


Our Giving God

"If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him." 

                               James 1:5

James 1:5 tells us that if we lack wisdom, we are to ask God. Let me tell you what that literally means. If you lack wisdom, ask of the "giving" God. Have you thought of God as the "giving" God?

What does it mean to you that God yearns to pour out His blessing upon you? Do you say to yourself, "Oh goodie, goodie, let me see what I can get from God"?

Or does it humble you that the Almighty God who created the air you breathe, the ground you walk upon, and the body you are draped in...this God loves you and wants to bless you? I pray it is the latter, for that is the heart of a child of God.

What a tragedy it would be if what you do for Jesus keeps you from Jesus............


Making the First Thing the First Thing

"Who can understand his errors? Cleanse Thou me from secret faults." 

                                                                                                       Psalm 19:12

I believe in church attendance, but if your relationship with the Lord and with others is suffering, then you need to stay at home and get on your face before God.

Sometimes a businessman will get very prosperous in his business--and at first it seems a good thing. He tells his wife, "Honey, you know how I couldn't give you much when we got married? Well, now I can." But soon the pursuit of a nice home and nice things consume him. A sadness descends upon his wife and children, and they lament, "Oh, Daddy....Oh, Husband...what we would give to just have you spend time with us."

What a tragedy it would be if what you do for Jesus keeps you from Jesus. 

Stop the cycle today. If you know you're a workaholic, stop it. If you know your walk is far from God, get it right.

Before you head out this morning or go to bed tonight, make sure that you make a date with Jesus.

Restore, Renew, Get Right.............

Is It Time to Refresh and Renew?   

"Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from Thy presence; and take not Thy Holy Spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of Thy salvation; and uphold me with Thy free Spirit." 

                        Psalm 51:10-12

So many people have the idea that being a Christian is like taking foul-tasting medicine--it tastes awful, but you know you'll feel better one day.

They're like the young man who prayed at a prayer meeting with few in attendance: "Oh God, be with us now, and help us while the rest of the people are out there having a good time."

Do you ever feel that going to church or having a quiet time is like going to the dentist? Then you're getting your satisfaction in life outside of a relationship with God. It's time to spend some time in prayer and ask God to renew your spirit.

Do you thank God for the pains in life? Or only the gains?.............

Murmuring or Grateful?

"Do all things without murmurings and disputings: That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world." 

                    Philippians 2:14-15

Do you know the problem with many of us when we obey God? We murmur about it while we are doing it! And God is taking notes, because halfhearted obedience isn't obedience at all. Remember, God is looking at the heart, not the deed (see 1 Samuel 16:7).

Do you know why we murmur? Because we've taken our eyes off Calvary. Jesus didn't murmur on the way to the cross. Oh no. Do you thank God for the pains in life? Or only the gains?

Ephesians 5:20 says, "Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ."

I change not..........

Our Unchanging Father

"But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned." 

                                                                                        1 Corinthians 2:14

God made the mind of man. All true discoveries and all true knowledge in this world come from God. It is God's Truth and we do not have to be afraid of it. But that doesn't mean we are to casually stroll down the devil's lane of godless philosophies.

God's Truth doesn't change like philosophies. Malachi 3:6a says, "For I am the LORD, I change not." I don't know whether that means anything to you, but it means an awful lot to me, dear friend.

The same God who loved us enough to put His Son on the cross two thousand years ago still loves us with that same love today. We don't have to worry when we come to God in prayer that we might catch Him in a bad mood. Now, if that doesn't start your motor, you don't have one.

IF MORE MEN KNEW THIS THE WORLD WOULD BE A MUCH BETTER PLACE..............

IF MORE MEN KNEW THIS THE WORLD WOULD BE A MUCH BETTER PLACE

Men to often define themselves by what they do, who they know, or what they own. When we do this we set ourselves up for anxiety, depression, confusion, and failure in our personal lives. Men would rather be envied for their material success than respected for their character. We are what we are in the eyes of God, nothing more or nothing less and should let God determine our worth. 

Character, wisdom, and love make up the essence of what it means to be an authentic man and humility comes into our lives when God becomes the audience we perform for. When this happens, human opinion becomes less and less important to us.


HAVE YOU EARNED THE RIGHT?.......A POWERFUL TRUE STORY!

HAVE YOU EARNED THE RIGHT?

In September of 2005, on the first day of school, Martha Cothren, a History teacher at Robinson High School in Little Rock, did something not to be forgotten. On the first day of school, with the permission of the school superintendent, the principal and the building supervisor, she removed all of the desks in her classroom. 

When the first period kids entered the room they discovered that there were no desks. 'Ms. Cothren, where are our desks?'

She replied, 'You can't have a desk until you tell me how you earn the right to sit at a desk.'

They thought, 'Well, maybe it's our grades.' 'No,' she said.

'Maybe it's our behavior.' She told them, 'No, it's not even your behavior.'

And so, they came and went, the first period, second period, third period. Still no desks in the classroom. Kids called their parents to tell them what was happening and by early afternoon television news crews had started gathering at the school to report about this crazy teacher who had taken all the desks out of her room.

The final period of the day came and as the puzzled students found seats on the floor of the desk-less classroom. Martha Cothren said, 'Throughout the day no one has been able to tell me just what he or she has done to earn the right to sit at the desks that are ordinarily found in this classroom. Now I am going to tell you.'

At this point, Martha Cothren went over to the door of her classroom and opened it. Twenty-seven (27) U.S. Veterans, all in uniform, walked into that classroom, each one carrying a school desk. The Vets began placing the school desks in rows, and then they would walk over and stand alongside the wall. By the time the last soldier had set the final desk in place those kids started to understand, perhaps for the first time in their lives, just how the right to sit at those desks had been earned.

Martha said, 'You didn't earn the right to sit at these desks. These heroes did it for you. They placed the desks here for you. They went halfway around the world, giving up their education and interrupting their careers and families so you could have the freedom you have. 

Now, it's up to you to sit in them. It is your responsibility to learn, to be good students, to be good citizens. They paid the price so that you could have the freedom to get an education. Don't ever forget it.'

By the way, this is a true story. And this teacher was awarded Veterans of Foreign Wars Teacher of the Year for the State of Arkansas in 2006. She is the daughter of a WWII POW.

 Let us always remember the men and women of our military and the rights they have won for us.

KEEP GOING

I'm not where I'm supposed to be,
I'm not what I want to be,
But I'm not what I used to be.
I haven't learned how to arrive;
I've learned how to keep going.
