GOD IS THE LORD OF HISTORY
As God's people who live in the present, who have a past that we are aware of and a future that is not altogether clearly known, we nevertheless have the future promises set forth by God in His Word as an anchor for our souls. The Bible speaks of our confidence in the future in terms of "hope." In the bible hope does not indicate an unfulfilled wish, instead, our hope rests upon a conclusion about the future that God has promised for His people.
God is our anchor that holds us firm in times of crisis and trouble. We live our lives in the midst of the waves that crash against us, yet we are not tossed to and fro with no anchor. Our anchor is the promise of God for the future that He has laid up for His people.

Principles for Dealing with the Changing World Order by Ray Dalio
"I believe the world is changing in big ways that haven’t happened before in our lifetimes but have many times in history, so I knew I needed to study past changes to understand what is happening now and help me to anticipate what is likely to happen. I shared what I learned in my book, Principles for Dealing with the Changing World Order, and my hope is that this animation gives people an easy way to understand the key ideas from the book in a simple and entertaining way. In the first 18 minutes, you’ll get the gist of what drives the “Big Cycle” of rise and decline of nations through time and where we now are in that cycle. If you give me 20 minutes more to watch the whole thing, and I will show you how the big cycle worked across the last 500 years of history—and what the current world leading power, the United States, needs to do to remain strong. I hope you find it valuable and look forward to hearing your thoughts. You can buy the book on Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/Changing-World...) or in bookstores nationwide.

How Will Life Change After a U.S. Dollar Collapse?
Video from Glenn Beck
"Now it’s not only President Biden teasing our ‘New World Order.’ A top Iranian politician recently said the same thing. So, what does that mean for America? Glenn explains the new alliance of DANGEROUS countries that’s currently forming and how it could COLLAPSE the U.S. dollar. Plus, why a new, digital currency would result in the American lifestyle coming to a SCREECHING HALT." from video introduction.
Video from Democracy Now
"President Biden reportedly warned Chinese President Xi Jinping via video call Friday that China would face “consequences” if it provided material support to Russia amid the war in Ukraine. The call was part of U.S. efforts to minimize an emerging Sino-Russian alliance, which threatens U.S. influence over the Eurasian landmass, says Alfred McCoy, professor of history at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. As U.S. global power declines, China and Russia “are going to emerge as the new centers of global power on the planet,” he adds.' from video introduction.
"Just as the relentless grinding of the earth's tectonic plates produces earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, so the endless superpower struggle for dominance over Eurasia is fraught with tensions and armed conflict. Beneath the visible outbreak of war in Ukraine and the U.S.-Chinese naval standoff in the South China Sea, there is now an underlying shift in geopolitical power in process across the vast Eurasian landmass — the epicenter of global power on a fast-changing, overheating planet. Take a moment to step back with me to try to understand what's now happening on this increasingly embattled globe of ours.
If geology explains the earth's eruptions, geopolitics is the tool we need to grasp the deeper meaning of the devastating war in Ukraine and the events that led to this crisis. As I explain in my recent book, "To Govern the Globe: World Orders and Catastrophic Change," geopolitics is essentially a method for the management of empire through the use of geography (air, land and sea) to maximize military and economic advantage. Unlike conventional nations, whose peoples can be readily mobilized for self-defense, empires are, by dint of their extraterritorial reach and the perils inherent in any foreign military deployment, a surprisingly fragile form of government. To give an empire a fighting chance of survival against formidable odds requires a resilient geopolitical architecture..." from the article: Geopolitics and the Ukraine conflict: A tale of Putin, Xi Jinping — and Hitler
