Roundtable Discussion
Banking Crisis

We discuss the emerging banking crisis with the very recent failure of Silverlake, Silicon Valley Bank, Signature Bank, and now even larger and multi-national Credit Suisse. Who’s next? What’s next? Is this the big one? What to do?

Now, those who have been with the New Breed for a while know God has been warning us about shakings coming to the US financial system and how to repent and prepare by Coming out of Babylon and entering into the Storehouse Vision. In January of this year, God impressed us to hold a “Scenario Planning” discussion. Remarkably, there were several quotes from the various scenarios which turned out to be prophetic:

Select Quotes from NBB January 2023 Scenarios

“The Fed tries to keep raising interest rates to tamp inflation, but now all sorts of unintended consequences arise.”

“People panic and a run on the banks ensues.”

“A new global financial crisis emerges and US banks close… when the banks reopen the government bails-in the banking system.”

“the Fed reverses course [on interest rates].”

Remarkably, the 3 hypothetical scenarios touched on MUCH OF WHAT IS GOING ON RIGHT NOW. Praise God for the preparation of his people.
“Surely the Sovereign LORD does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets.”

 Amos 3:7

Prophetic Word from 2008

Just as it looked like there was light at the end of the tunnel during the 2008 financial crisis (after TARP, bailouts, Lehman’s failure, etc.), I felt the Lord say:

“this is not the end – it is only the beginning of the end”.

With that He gave me Ezekiel 29-32, a section of scripture known as the “Coming judgment of Egypt”.

This is also known as the “seven-fold judgment against Egypt”

There is a timeframe in this passage of 40 years

And I felt like the Lord was saying this is coming in waves of shaking – possibly 7 waves or a ‘complete set’ of waves, which started in 2001:

2001 911 Attacks

2007-9 Financial Crisis

2020 Covid19

2022-23 the emerging banking crisis…

Further, I felt the Lord was saying the US led Global Financial Markets and Banking (ie, Milton Freedman’s clinical capitalism) were likened to the pride of “Pharaoh” and the strength of “Egypt” and was being judged accordingly.

The main sins of Egypt were: pride, self-interest, self-made man, worship of man’s hands (eg, technology), military power, idolatry of money, exploitation of the poor, etc. AND the seduction of the Church (Israel) into all of the same.

This passage has several prophetic keys:

Ezekiel 29: 3-9

   “Pharaoh king of Egypt,
the great dragon that lies
    in the midst of his streams,
that says, ‘My Nile is my own;
    I made it for myself.’

I will put hooks in your jaws,
    and make the fish of your streams stick to your scales;
and I will draw you up out of the midst of your streams,
    with all the fish of your streams
    that stick to your scales.
And I will cast you out into the wilderness,
    you and all the fish of your streams;
you shall fall on the open field,
    and not be brought together or gathered.
To the beasts of the earth and to the birds of the heavens
    I give you as food.

Then all the inhabitants of Egypt shall know that I am the Lord.

“Because you have been a staff of reed to the house of Israel,
when they grasped you with the hand, you broke and tore all their shoulders;
    and when they leaned on you, you broke and made all their loins to shake.
Therefore thus says the Lord God: Behold, I will bring a sword upon you,
    and will cut off from you man and beast, 
    and the land of Egypt shall be a desolation and a waste

Then they will know that I am the Lord.

Deutsche Bank Next?

Is Deutsche Bank next?

AT1 bonds are a newfangled instrument that changes the capital structure. Dubbed bail out bonds, the bonds aren’t worth anything if the bank fails through central bank bailout or government takeover.

What to Do?

As always, we will discuss how the Storehouse Vision is already directly addressing these financial judgments through repentance/reformation, and by bringing believers together in community to “love one another” which means to invest in one another. The question is not: how do I preserve my wealth? But: What is God saying in the midst of this shaking and how do I respond to come into alignment with heaven?

In that way “there shall be no poor among you”

Roundtable Discussion

Listening to the Heartbeat of Israel
What is God doing? Saying?

It has been said that Israel is God’s prophetic timepiece and Jerusalem the seat of His Throne. Tomorrow we discuss what is going on in Israel and how that affects everything not only in the Kingdom of God, but in the world. Economically. Politically. Spiritually.

So we watch Israel, as we listen to the heartbeat of God. Praying for these dry bones to live! (Ez 37). Let’s explore the timing and alignment of Israel’s preemptive actions and how they relate to other key global moves.

Issachar, men who understood the times and knew what Israel should do

1 Chron 12:32

I am very jealous for Zion; I am burning with jealousy for her. I will return to Zion and dwell in Jerusalem. Then Jerusalem will be called the Faithful City, and the mountain of the Lord Almighty will be called the Holy Mountain

Zech 8:2-3

Israel has an interesting relationship with Russia and China. They have not gone along with all the Western Sanctions, nor have they declared Russia an enemy. Why? We discuss.

Roundtable Discussion
Storehouse Q&A

This is Part 6 in the “How To” Create a Storehouse Series…

We will have a time of question and answer about starting or operating a “Storehouse”. All questions are fair game:

  • How do fees and costs get paid for ?
  • Who makes the decisions about what projects to work on ?
  • Can we charge people interest ?
  • How do we attract interest ?
  • How are debts forgiven ?
  • What’s more important: storing up or putting resources to work ?
  • Your questions ?

We will have those who have participated in storehouse communities field people’s questions…

Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much. So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches?

Luke 16:10-11

Storehouse Governance/Leadership

Role of the 5-fold ministry

– Different types of Apostles – sent ones, unity catalysts, builders

– Roles of Prophets – situational prophets

– Evangelists Preach and Herald what God is doing

– Teachers, Pastors and the role of Discipleship

Role of City Elders

– Role of Deacons

Storehouse Structure:

– Laws

– Regulations

– Operating entities and legal structures

– Local and State specific issues

– Role of Compliance

– Attorneys / Advisors

– legal and tax experts

– the challenge of operating out of the box, yet complying to necessary laws and regs

Size Changes Things

– Household Storehouse
– House Church / Bible Study Storehouse
– City Level Storehouse
– Regional / State Level Storehouse

  • Convergence of Storehouse the the “Ark” / City of Refuge / City Unity Movements

  • Storehouse is like the central nervous system economically for a Kingdom Unity movement


-> We will use regional examples from around the world to illustrate how this works…

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:

0% SHORT RATES19952009
0% 10Y TREASURY20162019
DEBT TO 100% GDP19992013
DEBT TO 200% GDP2010 

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.
