The British media have shared the news about the shopper stampedes at stores across the USA. The news report shares the violence that took place over a pair of trainers that cost $180. The headline is 'US violence for a shoe'. How did the US become such a violent nation, or has it always been violent since it began? There is a saying that a relationship ends the way it begins. The USA was birthed in violence and it will clearly end in violence, if they do not change their ways.
The cost of consumerism and what desire can do to the people. The state of the nation that is being destroyed by its own hand due to the corporations. In this case it is Nike. Hence why the biblical prophecies, the book of Daniel and Rev 13 mentioned the Leopard from Africa, Obama, the man 666. 6+6+6 = 18, and that is the soferim of 'Materialism striving to destroy spirituality'. It also applies to Rev 18 that is about the USA, because it is the only nation that fits the criteria of the prophecy.
Hence why Jesus Christ stood against ‘desire’ and attachment to it. So did Buddha, they both knew that desire is the cause of great pain and suffering.
If people stampede for a pair of trainers, what on earth will do they when Obama is not re-elected. Who can afford to pay £115 for a pair of trainers? Certainly, the children of today cannot afford it. So who and what is paying for such a thing when 50% of Americans are unemployed? Clearly, the cost is going on to credit cards.
Is this what Obama is responsible for in the USA? Is consumerism the cost of his administration with his wife and family living it up on their shopping sprees? What exactly did Obama achieve when he was in the community organizing? Was he only teaching them how to get sub-prime mortgages? In other words, teaching them desire that they could not afford? Matthew 24 also spoke about Obama. “So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes desolation,’ spoken of through the prophet Daniel—let the reader understand" The text is slightly different in the book of Mark. “When you see ‘the abomination that causes desolation’ standing where it does not belong—let the reader understand—then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Mark 13:14
Is this really the state of the USA and what it has become? Desolation.
In the prophecies given by Prophet Isaiah it states that he will stretch out over Edom (RED) the measuring line of chaos and the plumb line of desolation. Isaiah 34:11 This is definitely it.
