Pat Robertson’s 2009 forecast: U.S. socialism and dollar plunge

January 5, 2009

Controversial U.S. televangelist Pat Robertson has given his annual predictions for the year ahead, based on what he says God has told him. You can see a video broadcast of his 2009 forecasts here.

The Lord said the dollar is going to go down dramatically … (and) If I’m hearing him right, gold will go to about $1,900 dollars an ounce and oil to $300 a barrel,” he said.

What the Lord was saying, the people are willing to accept socialism to alleviate their pain,” Robertson said. Some U.S. conservatives have branded president-elect Barack Obama and the incoming Democrat-controlled U.S. Congress as “socialist”.

Robertson, a leading Christian conservative who once ran for president, made his predictions late last week on “The 700 Club” which is broadcast on his Christian Broadcasting Network.

Robertson’s predictions have become an annual affair. Last year he predicted a global recession for 2008 and said the oil price would hit $150 a barrel. For 2007, he predicted a massive terror attack on U.S. soil.

WARNING: Many real names of persons, streets, corporations as well as many other words will calculate to 666 by the English gematria calculator. NOTE: You cannot determine who the Antichrist is by these codes alone. Now for the purpose of balance you need to understand that a 666 total for any person’s name means nothing by itself. Also the Antichrist calculation will most likely be of his last name only. WARNING: The Antichrist CANNOT be determined by these English gematria codes alone. There are many other prophecies contained in the Bible concerning the Antichrist that must also come to pass before it can be determined absolutely if he is being revealed. Any 666 result of any real name does not mean a person is evil or the Antichrist.

Whenever I hear that another one of Americas so called prophet/profit/evangalists have made a so called prophetic revelation for us all I shudder. First and foremost prophecy is and has been this that or the other in the hands of those who make a liveing from such and therefore credibility is almost zero. IF YOU WANT HOPE don’t listen to anybody, anything, only to your own heart for thats where hope begins and Americas hope seems to be at the expense, in more ways than one, of everyone elses.

….says hopesome as he/she blogs from his/her suburban home, heated with foreign oil with their new big screen TV broadcasting to no one while the blog is typed, and waiting for the Starbucks coffee on their desk to cool enough to drink.

Capitalism provides opportunity for all those who wish to get involved. Why do you think those like Castro, Mugabe and Chavez make it their daily objective to shield “their” people from the real, free world, while they live in near complete squalor?

You would have a hard time not calling America a socialist country when compared to the definition. Our dollar (the fed’s dollar) is going to fall more in 09′. The amount of spending alone has devalued our currency greatly and the spending to come will push it even farther. Spending is only one piece of the puzzle for there is much much more. But it is nothing new. When I was young my grandfather told me he used to work for a quarter a day when he was young. And he was happy to get it. Simply, a quarter had more value then than today. America is not in the business of increasing the worth of it’s currency but quite the opposite. People are not concerned with what money represents just as long as they can spend it and until Americans regain control of their money supply it will always decline. Capitalism relies on the responsibility and honesty of the individual more than it’s laws. That is the basis for freedom. Until honesty is achieved amongst those that govern, we will no doubt have the same scenario. Choose your representation wisely.

so what do you make of the fact that

lucifer = 444

Posted by hyperqube | Report as abusive

Yes, Jesus = 444 and Lucifer = 444,
plus Christ = 462 and diabolos = 462.

It’s all about one( – ) pretending to be another ( + ).

See –> de2.htm
to understand how this applies to George Walker Bush.

By the way, Christos = 666, and Kristos also = 666, when using English Gematria, meaning more deception at work.

Dear Pat, thank you for speaking up about the what is the basic plan of Islam to eliminate all who do not support Islam. Show me one country under the contorl of Islam that allows freedom of speech and religious choices. What faith are most of the dictators and despots of the world? We must stand up for and speak up for the Truth. Thank you Pat. You have a great deal of support. Most of all, you have the love and support of our Father in Heaven. You will be challenged. However we know that if you want to follow the Lord, you will be persecuted. God bless us all. Thanks again. Your sincerely, C. Tyrrell.
