“Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, DECLARING THE END FROM THE BEGINNING, AND FROM ANCIENT TIMES THE THINGS THAT ARE NOT YET DONE, Saying, MY COUNSEL SHALL STAND, AND I WILL DO ALL MY PLEASURE:
YEA, I HAVE SPOKEN IT, I WILL ALSO BRING IT TO PASS; I HAVE PURPOSED IT, I WILL ALSO DO IT (Isaiah 46:9 – 11)”
Stephen Covey, In His Highly Popular Book “7 Habits Of Highly Effective People”, Says, “BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND“.
This is A Rephrasing Of God’s Word – “DECLARING THE END FROM THE BEGINNING”. The OMNISCIENT GOD Already Sees The Future As Clear As The Past Declares In His Word In The Bible – Many End Time Events.
Not Only That, He Further Declared, “MY COUNSEL SHALL STAND, AND
I WILL DO ALL MY PLEASURE
I HAVE SPOKEN IT, I WILL ALSO BRING IT TO PASS
I HAVE PURPOSED IT, I WILL ALSO DO IT”
No. 1. AN INCREASE OF TRAVELING & TOURISM IN THE END TIMES. “Even to the Time of The End – Many Shall Travel To And Fro”(Daniel 12:4b)
There Will Be A Great Increase In Travel & Tourism. Cars, Trains, Especially High Speed Trains & Planes Will Be In Use Till The End of Time. Malaysia is Among The Top Ten Nations For Tourist Arrivals.
No. 2. AN INCREASE OF KNOWLEDGE. “And Knowledge Shall Be Increased”(Daniel 14:4c). After the 2Nd World War, Knowledge Increased By Leaps & Bounds. Businesses That Promote Knowledge Or Inventions That Transmit Information In More & More Efficient Ways Will Be The Future. That’s why Steve Jobs of Apple & Bill Gates of Microsoft made Billions $ by tapping into This End Time Phenomena.
No. 3. FOOD & BEVERAGE INDUSTRIES “They were eating and drinking.” (Matthew 24:38a) All Companies That Produce Nutritious Food & Beverages At Competitive Costs Will Survive Till The End of The World.
No. 4. BRIDAL OUTFITS OR COMPANIES THAT PROVIDE MATRIMONIAL RELATED SERVICES. “Marrying & Giving In Marriage (Matthew 24:38b) Jalan Serampang, Johor Downtown, has many Boutique Bridal Set-Ups Offering Very High End Bridal Services.
No. 5. PROPERTY & CONSTRUCTION RELATED BUSINESSES> “They Builded” Luke 17:28c) Property Developers, Construction Companies & Real Estate Brokers Will Always Be Around.
No. 6. FARMING & PLANTATIONS . “They Planted.” Matthew 24:38b) There Is A Dearth of Farmers In The World Today Due To American Farm Subsidies. Many Farmers In India Cannot Compete Against US Exports. US Can Sell Below Production Costs By Govt. Subsidies. As a Result Many Indian Farmers went Bankrupt & Commited Suicide.
All Over The World Farmers Are Forsaking The Farms & Migrated To The Cities For Jobs. This Distortion Will Cause An Acute Food Shortage In The End Time. “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius… (Revelation 6:6). A denarius is a Day’s Wage For A Common Worker In Roman Time. And a quart of wheat is Food Sufficient For A Day Laborer.
This means that the harm done by UNCLE SAM In Future Cause Food Prices To Spiral Out Of Hand – One Day’s Work Is Only Sufficient To Buy One Person’s Daily Food Only!!! So that Big McDonald burger that you cost you a few dollars today might cost you hundred of dollars in the future!!
No. 7. POPULATION EXPLOSION. “When Men Began To Multiply On The Face Of The Earth “ (Genesis 6:1) The Ever Increasing Population Of The World Will Cause Land Prices To Go Up. Buildings Will Be More Vertical In Expansion & Design In Future. By the way, Singapore has Just Announced The Construction Of A First Vertical Kampung In The World. Someday, Landed Property Will Be A Luxury To Own. Will They Be Priced In The Millions Or Billions? No one knows yet.
No. 8. ADVANCEMENT OF MEDICAL SCIENCE & ESPECIALLY LIFE’S SCIENCES. “..A Child Shall Die An Hundred Years Old..” Isaiah 65:20″ The First Man, Adam, lived until Age 930. The Oldest Recorded Living Man was Methuselah – 969 Years Old!!
The Bible Predicts That Some Day In The Future Medical Science Will Be So Advanced That Men Will Again Be Enabled To Live To A Ripe Old Age Like Adam & Methuselah – Almost A Thousand Years! A Man Who Died at 100 Years Old Will Be Considered Only A Child. Sound far fetched?
No. 9. A MORE DANGEROUS & UNSAFE WORLD. “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come (2 Timothy 3:1)
Forty years ago in Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur, our house has no iron grill on the window. We don’t need iron gates. IN FACT, OUR FRONT DOORS & BACK DOORS WERE LEFT COMPLETELY OPEN IN THE DAY! We only lock the doors at night.
Today, even with iron grills on windows and doors plus burglar alarm we don’t feel safe. That’s Why There Is A Huge Proliferation of Gated & Guarded Communities. Some Even Employ Gurkha Guards from Nepal!
Security Firms That Provide Guard Services And Those That Sell Alarms & CCTVs Should Do Well.
No. 10. RISE OF EARTHQUAKES, TSUNAMI & LANDSLIDES “And there shall be Earthquakes in Various Places (Matthew 24:7)
There’s A Company Called NAMFATT, listed in the Malaysian KLSE. Among the Assets of NAMFATT were 1,000 Acres Prime Land Facing The Sea In A Very Popular Seaside Resort. Yet NAMFATT went Bankrupt! Why? NAMFATT,s 1,000 Acres Prime Land Was Located In Phang Nga Bay, Thailand. When The Great Tsunami Struck In Year 2004, many people, especially European tourists DIED THERE!! Instantly Land Value There Crashed With Zero Buyers!! That’s Why NAMFATT FAILED!
In Spite & Despite of Warnings From Bible, Warnings From Nature & Warnings From Human Tragedy & Bitter Experience – People Will Continue To Be Foolish & Foolhardy In Buying Real Estate In Earthquake Prone Regions & Tsunami Facing Ocean Front Properties!
