Why Fear?

(Fear Not!)

Silver Stock Report

by Jason Hommel, July 25, 2010


When I was 10, it was 1980.  I noticed that adults were scared of higher gold prices.  I asked, "Why should anyone be scared of higher gold prices, if you are scared, then why not buy gold?"  No adult could rationally answer that question, not then, and not ever since then.  Thus, my fascination with gold began at a rather young age.

It seems that my job today is partly to calm people's fears; or to encourage them.  Or share information, or warn, while encouraging.  But people today fear more than just high gold prices, the list is nearly endless:  Gun confiscation, Government Health Care, Increased Taxes, Arbitrary Laws too numerous to count or comply with, etc.

The Bible has a few words about fear.  We Christians are to be totally fearless!

[2 Tim 1:7] For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

[1John 4:16] And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. [17] Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world. [18] There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. [19] We love him, because he first loved us.

Fear appears to be as bad as murder and lies, according to the Bible!

[Rev 21:8] But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

As I see it, we are not to fear anything, since we Christians are given the promise of eternal life through Jesus Christ!  Thus:

[Heb 13:6] So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

But rather, we are to be prudent, cautious, wise, and able to detect the signs of the times so as to prepare.

Fear is a sign of the last times -- a sign of the soon return of the Lord Jesus Christ!

Luke 21:25-28 (New King James Version)
25 "And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; 26 men's hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. [Luke 21:27] And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. [Luke 21:28] And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

"--men's hearts failing them from fear--"

I used to think that this phrase from scripture would describe many random people dropping dead at random.  But the verse does not say that, it says men's hearts will fail, due to fear.  It seems it's more specific, and the reality is more subtle.

The number one killer in the number one most populous, prosperous and most Christian nation on earth, the USA, is:

Heart disease, at about 350,000 per year.

Risk factors:
1.  Being a man!
2.  Stress!  Stress is fear, anxiety, a constant arousal caused by the desire to either fight or take flight, which is to run in fear!

Analysis:  The bible is correct, and the reality of heart disease is only a partial fufillment.

Prediction:  "--men's hearts failing them from fear--" will get worse, and the Bible will be proved to be more dramatically true, as time goes on.

Here is another interesting prophecy, this one seems harder to believe.

Rev 16:8 The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and the sun was given power to scorch people with fire.

Rev 16:9 They were seared by the intense heat and they cursed the name of God, who had control over these plagues, but they refused to repent and glorify him.

"The sun" was given power to scorch people with fire?"  I've always thought this prophecy was a bit hard to believe, since if this were literally true, the sun would burn up everything on earth if sunlight itself were powerful enough to burn up human flesh.  So, what's the definition of the Greek word used for sun in this case?

http://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?Strongs=G2246&t=KJV

Helios:
1. the sun
2. the rays of the sun
3. the light of day

Ah, so according to definition number two, "the rays of the sun", which is light, it could also mean "light", or perhaps any kind of light, regardless of source.  But, then again, if the writer intended to say "light", there was a word for that, too, so what else could have been intended.  Why "Helios" instead of "phos" or "phoster" for the word "light"?

Another interesting item is that the name "Helios" is the name of a Greek God, also identified as Apollyon, also known as "the destroyer", a name also mentioned earlier, in Revelation 9:11.

Here is fascinating news item. (One more thing to fear, or not, as we should not!):

There is now a consumer laser that is powerful enough to burn (and destroy) human skin, and cause instant and permanent blindness (destroying sight), available for $299.

The Spyder III Pro Arctic Laser.

http://www.wickedlasers.com/lasers/Spyder_III_Pro_Arctic_Series-96-37.html

Analysis:  The bible is correct, and the reality of portable lasers that can burn skin is only a partial fufillment.

Prediction:  "--the sun (light or destroyer) was given power to scorch people with fire--" will get worse, and the Bible will be proved to be more dramatically true, as time goes on.

This laser weapon has the power to "shake the powers".  The history of the world has shown that with more power to the people, came more political power, and greater respect and restraint on the part of those who would claim to govern.  This laser weapon has the power to increase the power of the people, and to decrease the power of despots and tyranny.

I've already seen stories of people using laser pointers at police during riots. 

Belfast battles become 'Disney theme park' as rioters use high-powered laser lights to blind police -- 14th July 2010

7 days later, Police get Green lasers too:

Blinding laser beam newest police tool

http://www.king5.com/news/BLINDING-LASER-BEAM-NEWEST-POLICE-TOOL-98973794.html

The new Spyder III Pro Arctic laser is 4000% brighter than a violet model, and the violent model, I presume, is brighter than the green ones.

Imagine if an entire squad of policemen could be permanently blinded in seconds with a laser sweep from just one, two, or three laser wielding protesters?

Is that the new reality?  What does that do to the world's power structure?  Shaken yet?  Or soon to be shaken?

The point of this prophesy is to glorify God.  Does it glorify God to take away power from despots, and put more power into the hands of the people?

2 Corinthians 3:17 (King James Version)
17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

If the bible makes accurate predictions, then it can be believed with regard to its other statements and promises, too, such as:

Rom 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
 
1John 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
1John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Rom 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
Rom 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Mat 10:32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.

I just discovered a narrative of prophetic dreams of high food prices, that are much more scary and "fear mongering" than perhaps anything I've ever sent out to my list.  As a fellow watchman, I feel compelled to share, because the truth of this resonates with my spirit.  Whether the date for dollar devaluation (August 2010) is correct or not, I have no confirmation of, but mark my words, paper money's death, and the rejection of honest money, can bring famine to America. My view is that it need not be that way, if people repent, and obtain silver before it is too late.  What I do see happening is that people in the USA buy most of the silver for investment worldwide, so there is hope that currency destruction need not end in horrific famine.  This is only a prophetic warning.  If it is heeded, famine might not be as bad.  Likewise, Jonah warned Nineveh, but Nineveh repented, and was not destroyed.

Here's another great article on silver:

Where Is the Silver?
July 20, 2010
http://seekingalpha.com/article/215450-where-is-the-silver?source=yahoo

The article documents less than 1 billion oz. of silver left.  Much is in the form of ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds), which might not have the silver at all, because the custodians are LBMA members who operate with fractional reserve silver lending.

Finally, one of the best researchers and analysts in the Gold market writes:

Adrian Douglas: The LBMA joins the gold squeeze cover-up
Sunday, July 25, 2010
http://www.gata.org/node/8858

Adrian has recently been exposing that the LBMA banks are running a fractional reserve lending operation with gold, at a ratio of about 45 to 1.  The news now is that the LMBA has responded by ending the publication of the statistics that make this analysis possible.  Thus, the "cover-up".

There is no "lender of last resort" like the Federal Reserve to back up this fractional reserve lending fraud, except sales of central bank gold, which is halting, and turning into net buying.  Thus, this fraud will soon end.
