World Financial Crisis

This is a Google Translation of the original text in Cultura Evangélica 
Wall Street was the fuse of a crisis that threatens to topple the wall_street_thumb[3] major economies and remoldar the profile politico-economic world.
In this scenario the world - perplexed - seeking a safe harbor. After all, in one moment all the apparent safety of the capitalist world was put in check.
In search of an exit, the leaders of nations have mobilized in a concerted effort to overcome the crisis. The IMF has already expressed his point of view: the moment has no precentes in the human history. We are living a unique moment, history.
But the same instability which attacks the financial markets on the planet and threatens the capitalist world means that at that time, many turn their attention to God, but we still do not know.

Investors are solid Scholarship
It is then that all believe in the Word of God remain strong: invested all their confidence and pinned all their hopes on a single, strong and trusted institution: the faith in Jesus Christ. Then his teaching: provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth. Luk-12.33. The true faith in Christ is an asset that can not be stolen and not destroyed or damaged.

And those who relied on the security offered by Jesus are turning to their promises:
The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them. The angel of Jehovah encampeth round about them that fear him, And delivereth them. O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. Oh taste and see that Jehovah is good: Blessed is the man that taketh refuge in him.
O fear the LORD, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him. Oh fear Jehovah, ye his saints; For there is no want to them that fear him.
The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing.
Psalm 34:7-10
Promises are directed only to those who follow the advice of King David: "... yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast." - PSalm 57:1
They believe that, everywhere in the world, learned the lesson of the Apostle Paul: I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. Phil 4:12. Faith is not perfect is not shown even in difficult moments and bitter life!
But above all we can trust the promises of God, for those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion which is not challenging, but remains forever, - Sl 125:1.

The moment in which we live
This moment is for attention and prayer, as the Book of Revelation warns us that in the midst of wars and rumors of wars is the antichrist express to the world with their wisdom misleading, putting everything in axles and being acclaimed as the savior for humanity's homeland and getting the UN to govern the invitation of the globalized world. We know, that crises, wars and instability are the world stage conducive to the manifestation of the Antichrist.
At the 2nd World War, many thought that Hitler was the Antichrist. Ledo mistake. The Scriptures show us that the Antichrist will not be at the beginning, a dictator. His profile, in contrast, will be a great seducer, as deceiving the world with their false wisdom, which seemed to be the world leader for which the world hopes, that Israel expected the messiah, of the Eastern Mohammed, the Buddha of the Japanese ... Anyway, does not appear to be the Antichrist. Before, it looks to be the highest manifestation of "God" when the men sit in the temple in Israel (yet to be rebuilt) and make great signs, so that even makes fire descend from heaven to earth in the sight of men,-Rev. 13:13. Will be immediately acclaimed by the crowd and religions deceived, and the world to enjoy an apparent calm before coming to Great Tribulation.

Hope, prayer vigil and
This moment is watching in prayer, because we know that the ringing of the last trumpet the dead shall rise and the living will be transformed and, together, subiremos to meet the Lord in the air ... From that moment, the Antichrist will have nothing else prevents him to put into practice its plans for world government, distancing humanity finally Bible and the teachings of Jesus Christ of salvation ...
May God bless all who believe and have mercy of those who still believe not. We will remain firm and in prayer, intervened in the world while we're still in it, to see if, somehow, someone else is empowering to believe and put their trust in Jesus Christ and not the uncertainty of riches earth: Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy -1 º Tim 6:17
