From nine to five, I work as an insurance agent in California. Like it or not, what happens in California is usually a precursor to trends that will spread throughout the United States. What’s coming is an economic collapse that is in full swing in the state of California. The people there are surviving over-taxation, over-regulation, massive inflation, and continuous natural disasters. The price of insurance is rising there but has been suppressed by the state government. Residents of most other states have sustained even more significant increases. The fallout stories have been heartbreaking, and the worst part is that older adults are feeling the brunt of the unsustainable price increases.

As I stand back and watch this unfold, I wonder how long this system will last? How long can we continually rebuild as disaster after disaster befalls our country?

No doubt challenging times are coming, but remember, disaster is chaos and opportunity mixed. People aiming to have control after the fall would like nothing more than for you to lose hope, but we must remain focused and remember the basics of survival. You can survive three weeks without food, three days without water, three hours of extreme weather without shelter, and three minutes without air. However, you can survive zero seconds without hope.

The problems plaguing our society can seem daunting, but if you want to fix the world, you must start with yourself. You must get right with the Lord and our savior, Jesus Christ. Jesus is the eternal energy spirituals seek, the eternal love void from our society. Coming to terms with your faith will help you conquer your past demons. Now is the time to gather your loved ones. You must exercise patience, caring, understanding, and forgiveness and pray together. All of the first-world problems that control our current lives will seem insignificant in the future. Our first focus must be on the Lord. Make no doubt that this is a spiritual war, and only with the power of Jesus can we restore his kingdom on Earth.

Understand that there is no way our current economy can sustain itself. Collapse is inevitable at this point. I am neither an expert on gold, silver, or crypto nor a financial expert in any way. Even a novice like myself understands that inflation will mean an increase in interest rates. Eliminating all debt in your life may not be possible, so first, focus on any debts you have that are a variable interest rate. Those with food, not money, will control the power in the future. Why else would a power-hungry man like Bill Gates be buying up farmland on a massive scale like he is? If you can afford to invest in land, do it. Land can’t be produced and will only grow in value.

Even corporations are buying up urban homes at a historic rate. This rapid purchasing is further driving the value and cost of homes. 

Corporations are using the investments to diversify their portfolios and collect “generational money.” Essentially killing the American dream and ensuring that “you will own nothing and be happy about it.” Corporate landlords will control your home and food supply and determine if you can travel. Understand that there is no way we can produce enough materials for electric vehicles for everyone to own one. The end plan is for everyone to live in urban areas with communal, self-driving electric cars that can show up to take you where you need to go.

When looking for land, ensure you have the land and water tested for chemical contaminants. It does you no good if you buy a property whose soil is unable to grow vegetables and water that is poisoned. It happens more than you may think, so testing is a must.

You need to subsidize your food supply wherever possible. You will reduce your reliance on the corporate system. Growing your own food provides a healthier meal and saves you a ton of money. I understand that gardening or raising livestock is only for some. Try to think of just one thing you can produce and do it will. This will provide you with a staple for your house and an item you can barter. 

Also, if you are not into doing it yourself, support those around you that do. If you don’t support them, they will not have the financial means to continue their efforts, and corporations will fill the void.

Our medical industry is another unsustainable system. I could go on all day about the woes of our medical institutions. Unfortunately, most older doctors have given up on this new medical system built around diagnosing symptoms rather than the whole being and prescribing unnecessary procedures and medications to meet pharmaceutical quotas. I have lost trust entirely in the medical complex. When it comes to medical problems, always seek multiple opinions. Whom do you know in the medical industry? Ask them. Consult a holistic healer. They will tell you if your problem can be fixed with diet, lifestyle changes, or herbs or if it is a problem that must be solved with Western procedures. Wholistic healers look at your whole body and assess the risks to your future body that Western practitioners may not even consider.

Remember that praise always goes first; the first thing you must do with your problems is pray on them. As the reality of our future comes at us faster and faster, we must slow down. We must stand for Jesus and be present in his army to ensure that love reins triumphant when God has finished setting the Earth back on course. Keep hope alive and have faith in the Lord.
