(Troy Anderson) Amid the stock market’s worst four-day start to a year on record and growing concerns about the global economy, faith leaders and financial experts say God may allow a “severe economic chastisement” to wake people up. “But in the middle of all this God wants to supernaturally bless, prosper, raise up, promote and increase the wealth of those of His people who are truly in a supernatural relationship with Him,” says Paul McGuire, a prophecy expert, Fox News and History Channel commentator and host of the GOD TV show, Apocalypse and the End Times.

Michael Snyder, publisher of The Economic Collapse Blog, says he believes a “great, great, shaking” is coming to America, but those walking in the “middle of God’s will can take comfort in the fact that He promised to never leave us or forsake us.”

“He wants us to know that He knew everything that was going to happen in advance, that He is in control, that He has a plan, and that He wants us to prepare,” Snyder says. “Yet millions upon millions of Christians have not prepared for the hard times that are coming. By doing so, they are ignoring the examples of Noah, Joseph and so many others in the Scriptures that heeded God’s warnings and took action.” FULL REPORT
