Roundtable Discussion:

Economic Scenario Planning

Tomorrow we will discuss three possible future financial/economic scenarios and how God’s people can start to prepare now. We will do this as a way of thinking differently – as a New Breed of Business people – and how we can react well during times of uncertainty and shaking. This will help prepare us today for how to plan and live out our faith now and for the future. By the Spirit and in the natural. A hybrid of heaven and earth.

The discussion format will be this: we’ll lay out three scenarios and you – the NBB “management team” – will brainstorm about what could be done to address certain situations that may emerge. We will also evaluate and test the Storehouse models for how they would work under such scenarios.

Should be fun!

Pierre Wack – Royal Dutch Shell

Back in my strategic planning days in banking, we used a tool/method developed in the 1960s and 1970s known as “Scenario Planning“. This was made famous by Royal Dutch Shell, who through the leadership of Jimmy Davidson, head of Shell’s economics and planning, brought Ted Newland and Pierre Wack together as in-house “futurists”. The duo had a knack for shaping plausible, yet unlikely, future scenarios. And Wack, through his flair of his storytelling developed as a former magazine editor, was highly effective presenting such scenarios to executive management. They were able to imagine future scenarios and “think outside the box” of regular management and planning to solve potential problems. Wack was able to get management to react to his “what would you do if?” type of questions. What emerged were common solutions that came out of the divergent future scenarios. This allowed for Shell to prepare ahead of time for what might eventually come. And it did.

Shell famously prepared well for not one, but several crises. The oil embargo of the 1973 middle east crisis was the first. Their management team was prepared for this. All of their competitors were caught out, unprepared. And in turn, Shell thrived during those times of crisis and increased their market share and profitability.

OK, so how does this translate for us?

Three Scenarios for Discussion

1. China invades TaiwanThe US and its allies in the region hesitate militarily, and decide once again to extend its Russia-type sanctions against dollar trade with China and its allies. But it backfires as supply chains are even more disrupted than during COVID19. Further, it backfires as an Eastern block of nations coalesce with many OPEC nations, distancing themselves from the dollar and trading petro-yuan and petro-rubles instead. Israel finds itself having to develop relationships beyond the US for its financial, energy and economic security.

Reference: Chris Reed’s Taiwan Prophecy

Chuck Pierce’s Passover Prophecies and War of the Future Church (see Trade Wars writeup and podcast)

2. A new global financial crisis emerges and US banks close for a period of six months, when the banks reopen the government bails-in the banking system by renegotiating loans and haircutting deposits.

Reference: David Wilkerson’s “Bank Holiday” Prophecy also see Economic Update in Prophetic Context writeup and podcast

3. Inflation takes off again and the economy goes into recession. Many staples become scarce (famine). US Government receipts decline, so it has to borrow much more – well beyond its capacities to repay. The Fed tries to keep raising interest rates to tamp inflation, but now all sorts of unintended consequences arise. The government can no longer afford to pay its interest, and there is no political will to keep raising rates. So the Fed reverses course and prints money in a desperate attempt to revive the economy. All global credibility and trust in the dollar goes away. People panic and a run on the banks ensues. The existing USD effectively  starts to fail. As a result, FDIC deposits are frozen. Debts can no longer be paid with old dollars. After a brief time, a new CBDC (digital dollar) is introduced that the banks have been testing behind the scenes. Old dollars are no longer accepted for many things. If you want to use old dollars, you have to bring them in for destruction, and only then are you issued new digital currency at 100:1. But that dollar is now controlled by a central authority. You can only use your money to purchase approved items. Rations are also introduced. Paper money is gone instantly because in the crisis, Americans become desperate to try something, anything. Democrats and Republicans alike.

Roundtable Discussion:
Shakings – first Japan, then US/World

A headline caught my attention Dec 20th: Bank of Japan shocks global markets with bond yield shift. What was the shift? The BOJ is winding down the yield curve management that was ushered in by Haruhiko Kuroda as BOJ President starting 2013. He has stated that he will not seek reappointment at the end of his term April, 2023.

Why does this matter? Because it could be a signal that the BOJ reserves the right to raise short-term interest rates at some point in the future. It could happen quickly and by surprise. This could portend/trigger other global financial events, as it did in 2007.

When was the last time this happened? 16 years ago at the end 2006 and the beginning of 2007. The BOJ raised rates. It was unexpected. It was premature for their economy, which was still greatly depressed and had just turned positive for the first time in a long-time.

The Lord visited me with a word on Jan 2, 2007 when our family was in St. Thomas that surprised me. Here is a summary:

This word changed my life. The net result of its coming to pass, for me personally, was that it marked a shift in my way of thinking from simply running a specialized US long-short, public-private hedge fund using Wall Street models, into thinking globally, and paying attention to the macro financial markets (such as currencies), with the opportunity to shift generations of wealth for good. This also coincided with a shift in my business practices away from pure capitalism and into biblical economy (the New Breed of Business reform) and with that, the Storehouse vision. God making ready Storehouses of finance and resources throughout the earth for his Kingdom’s purposes, not adhering to the ways of “Babylon“. Like a type of global endowment for the Church at large, if you will.

Back to Japan…

Japanese stock market never fully recovered – even 35 years later…

So what emerged from all this is there seems to be a financial pattern: first Japan, then the US/rest of the world. Fittingly, Japan is known as the land of the rising sun. Where does the sun rise first? In the east. In Japan. What happens to the Japanese experiment in monetary policy has then flowed into the rest of the world’s thinking, starting in the US.

Let’s look at some important – not so great – firsts and facts:

 FIRST – JAPANFOLLOW – USA / EURO
STOCK MARKET CRASH19892008
0% SHORT RATES19952009
0% 10Y TREASURY20162019
DEFLATION19982009
DEBT TO 100% GDP19992013
DEBT TO 200% GDP2010 
CENTRAL BANK QE – GOV DEBT20012009
CENTRAL BANK QE – ETFS20102020
CENTRAL BANK QE – 50% OWN GOV DEBT2022 

Now, I’m not sure exactly why Japan might be a leading indicator for the Western world’s central banks and economies.

Some believe that the USA missed the opportunity to introduce the gospel and Christianity to Japan in the post WWII reconstruction period. Unlike Europe, Japan’s nation was never rooted in Christianity. Instead, the US helped reconstruct and “Westernize” Japan’s economy post-WWII through introducing democracy and capitalistic economy, banking and financial markets. But, the absence of any Judeo-Christian moral grounding and guardrails, its implementation led to the decade of Japanese decadence and triumphalism of the 1980s. Japan’s economy grew twice as fast as the US from 1960-1989. By some measures, Japan was briefly the #1 economy in the world in the late 1980s. Its financial markets were on a tear. Its real-estate was the most expensive in the world. Its manufacturing efficiency and quality was the envy of the world (remember Kaizen and Just-In-Time manufacturing?)

But not anymore.

Bob Jones Earthquake Prophecies

There is a key prophetic pattern to understand that relates the geo-physical to the geo-political/financial: The Bob Jones earthquake prophecies. Both natural and economic earthquakes. First, the big one will hit Japan physically (fulfilled March 11,2011), then the big one hits West Coast USA physically as well as an “economic shaking” to the US/World:

  • First Japanese Quake -> then West Coast USA quake
  • First Japanese Quake -> then US/global economic shaking/meltdown

Bob Jones Earthquakes Dream/Vision 1989 (incidentally the year the Nikkei also tanked):

  • First, N. California Coast quake will be witnessed all around the world (fulfilled Oct 17, 1989 during world series televised game)
  • Second, a Japanese major quake (fulfilled March 11, 2011)
  • Third, a major California quake (beyond what has been seen – not yet fulfilled)

Part of the prophecy relates to an “economic unraveling”, a “financial collapse”, “economic meltdown”, that will hit the US and the world. All of this is God lifting his hand which currently is “holding it all together”. It is a remedial judgment of God which we pray for his mercy, and the grace in its aftermath to repent and reform.

Rick Joyner’s advice for Preparation:

Build our houses on the Rock of Jesus Christ

These coming financial shakings are one of the reasons why we work toward the Storehouse Vision.

Roundtable Discussion – No Plan B in the Kingdom of God

  • Lot came out of Sodom. But, his wife looked back (Gen 19)
  • Israel came out of Egypt. But that generation looked back (Num 14)
  • Judah came out of Babylon. But Ezra commanded them to leave their foreign wives and children (Ez 10)

Today we share testimonies of coming out of financial Egypt / Babylon and trusting God instead for provision with miracles coming forth. No half in, half out. No one foot in the world, one foot in the Kingdom. No Plan “B”.

We discuss the importance of avoiding fallback plans as FAITH-KILLERS and SELF-SABOTAGE, subconsciously or otherwise. Often this has to do with fear and control. When we fully trust God and eliminate fall-back plans, God honors our faith and often involves miracles.

And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him

Hebrews 11:6

The Lord said to Gideon, “You have too many men. I cannot deliver Midian into their hands, or Israel would boast against me, ‘My own strength has saved me.’

Judges 7:2

But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do

James 1:6-8

Part of the discussion will surround the implications of leaving behind institutional debt and mortgages, FICO scores, stock market gains, 401k/IRA retirement plans, bigger barns, etc. We will hear testimony of vows made in obedience to God and their scriptural precedent.

Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.

James 4:13-15

An Israelite’s Failed Retirement Plan:

The ground of a certain rich man yielded an abundant harvest. He thought to himself, ‘What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.’ “Then he said, ‘This is what I’ll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store my surplus grain. And I’ll say to myself, “You have plenty of grain laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.”’ “But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself? This is how it will be with whoever stores up things for themselves but is not rich toward God.

Luke 12:16-20

In that day every man shall cast away his idols of silver, and his idols of gold…

Isaiah 31:7

An interesting perspective on these things: Preparing for the End Times with Monte Judah:

We also examine the difference between faith in what God said and desires, versus divining what we want or vainly imagine/desire. And how that often gets confused in our money culture. And the more innocent matter of “I thought what God said would happen looked different than what actually happened”.

Roundtable Discussion: How to Start a Storehouse 

This is Part 4 in a Storehouse “How To” Series
(our next session will be “Structure and Governance”)

By Way of Review

Storehouse Vision

How to Create a Storehouse podcast Series:

Part 1: Seeding Storehouses

Part 2: Why a Storehouse?

Part 3: Needs not my Own

How to Begin

We will discuss the basics of starting a Storehouse using two types of funding models at any group level (church community, city, county, state, region, nation) :

1. Create an evergreen “Common Fund” or “Storehouse Fund” to serve a community on an ongoing basis. You can think of this as an “and they laid the proceeds at the Apostles feet” as per Acts 4:35. You also can think of this as an Endowment or Foundation.

2. “Storehouse Project” funding whereby individuals within a community can opt-in or invest side-by-side and project by project. As part, each individual can also “store” resources in a type of account where they have the flexibility and choice to: invest from, transfer funds in and out of, have principal returned to, donate, purchase goods or services with, and receive gifts or dividends. There are 3 basic types of projects, which we generally categorize as: Assist (benevolence), Equip (interest free loans) and Destiny (dividending loans).

And how a hybrid of the two works together…

These models will focus around a simple USD based Storehouse, but can be done with any currency, or you can create a local currency (see Alt Currency podcast).

Coming out of Babylon / ONM Key Scriptures:

John 17 Unity: The harvest (the whole world will know Christ) will come through true unity in the Body of Messiah/Christ.

2 Corinthians 5 : The ministry of reconciliation. First between man and God. Then between one another.

Ephesians 2:16 : That such reconciliation is made first between Jew and Gentile. Without which, how can an within “the two become one”?

2 Corinthians 6 : Come out and be separate from Babylon .What does Christ have to do with Satan? Do not partner together with unbelievers.

1 Corinthians 3 : Strife, Divisions, Carnal, Worldliness work against Holiness and Unity. Maturity requires Holiness and is the process of sanctification. No one gets credit other than what God gives. No one gets another wage other than the Lord deems fair. No one can build apart from Christ if they expect the work to last and survive the test by fire. The sign of immaturity in Christ is division (a lack of unity).

Common Pitfalls

Using Galatians 3:28 to justify another gospel: False Teaching: No longer Jew nor Greek means there is no distinction any longer between Jew or gentile. But how could this be if we clearly know in fact that there is still a distinction between Man and Woman which is a parallel sighting in the scripture: There is no longer Male nor Female?

Believing we have “Come out of Babylon” when we still adhere to logic such as: Self-preservation – “God helps those who help themselves”. Or, Mammon – “Well, without the money it can’t be done.” Or, “Seek-first Provision” – “Well, I guess god didn’t call me to do something because he didn’t provide the money for me to do it.” Or when we follow the doctrine of the world in “Separation of Church and State” “Separation of Church and Business” “The Business of Business is Business”
