Wall Street is heading into a summer from hell — a period of extreme volatility that top investors say will bring a near-biblical reckoning

Paul Rolland, Night Watchman, Night Watchman Ministries

Ten ‘10’ Denotes God’s divine ‘COMPLETENESS’ as to things on EARTH. In Revelation 10, he is opening up the ancient scrolls and ‘little book’ of prophecy that Daniel was told to ‘SEAL UP’ and not write of what was spoken. He was prophetically being told additional things that would transpire or occur ‘in the end of days’ and during the 7 year ‘tribulation.

Daniel 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the ‘time of the end’: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

Daniel 12:9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the ‘time of the end’.

‘Time of the End’:

Revelation ‘10’ And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:

2 And he had in his hand a ‘little book open’(NWN; Daniels ‘little book’ is now being opened by God’s Great Angel of Prophecy) and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,

3 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven ‘7’ thunders uttered their voices.

(NWN; I ‘discern’ that these are seven ‘7’ other great prophecy angels who are ‘confirming’ that NOW IS THE TIME to OPEN DANIEL’S ‘END TIME’ Book of Future Prophecy.’)

4 And when the seven ‘7’ thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven ‘7’ thunders uttered, and write them not.

5 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,

6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:

(NWN; The Great Prophecy Angel is proclaiming the ‘LAST DAYS or END TIMES’ have come, in no uncertain terms, and that NOW IS THE TIME to reveal prophecy related TO the Last Days or End Times and Tribulation.)

7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh ‘7’ angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

(NWN; Seven ‘7’ denotes God’s divine completion to his plan or purpose for this ‘7th’ prophecy angel to commence and complete prophecy related to the Last Days and End Times. Think of the Great Prophecy Angel as a ‘General’ and the ‘7th’ prophecy angel as a Major or Colonel or someone of rank who has been given authority to physically ‘begin something or start something.’)

8 And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open (NWN; notice that the ‘little book’ is OPEN) in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.

(NWN; the prophecy angel(s) are HANDING the little book to physically alive men on the earth. In essence, they are handing or ‘transferring’ the ‘little book of prophecy’ to physical men ALIVE on the EARTH during the ‘End Times’ or ‘Last Days.’ God conveys prophecy to Angels who in turn are ‘messengers’ of God’s prophecy to mortal men alive. Angels, throughout the past 6,000 years have been ‘messengers’ for God to mankind.)

9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.

(NWN; this is a ‘discernment’ on my part. ‘Take it and eat it’ is a spiritual ‘consumption’ of understanding the End Times and God’s related prophecies to go along with ‘signs of the times.’ It takes ‘7’ knowledge, wisdom, obedience, humility, persistence, prayer and the Holy Spirit’ to work prophecy in man’kind. This is a great and wonderful thing, just like a ‘7’ course meal. However, once the prophecies are apparent ‘consumed and understood’ they will be prone to make one sick to the stomach because of what they foretell. Just like eating a ’7’ course meal will likely make you feel like you could explode. God’s UNFILTERD WRATH poured on evil man’kind who refuse Him, and refuse His Son Jesus Christ and His eternal offer of salvation. Seeing prophecy happen and unfold is a wonderful and miraculous thing. Understanding the implications of seeing prophecy unfold, leaves one’s stomach bitter and sour because of the ‘gastrointestinal storm’ that is coming. Pass-the-antacid-pills, please.)

10 And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.

(NWN; the prophecy angel was prophesying what would happen to anyone who attempted to reveal what was in the ‘little book.’ This verse ‘confirms’ that what was prophesied, did in fact occur and was experienced by those given the task of being Watchmen. This also ‘suggests’ that some men are ‘willingly’ allowing themselves to be Watchmen because they consciously love prophecy (God’s Word) and are completely open and receptive to it.)

11 And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.

(NWN; since this is verse ‘11’ it suggests a WARNING(S). The purpose of prophecy is to inform, proclaim and WARN. It suggests that the Watchmen who proclaim the Word of God, will have their ‘7’ words, letters, videos, blogs, sermons, articles and books proclaim God’s WILL to those during the End Times / Last Days and Tribulation period. God has ALWAYS used Holy Angels and physical men (Moses, Elijah, Daniel, Enoch, and others) to speak on behalf of God. He will do this also through the Tribulation via; 1. Prophecy revealed to mankind via his ‘little book’ to Watchmen, 2. The ‘two witnesses’, ‘lampstands’ or candles who proclaims God’s light to the world for the first 3.5 years of the tribulation, 3. The various Angel warnings given to men to NOT TAKE THE MARK of the BEAST and lastly, 4. The 144,000 Jewish Evangelists who have the ‘seal of God’ in their foreheads (and NOT the mark of the Beast) who proclaim Jesus Christ’s offer of Salvation ONE LAST TIME, before the 7 year tribulation ends.)

Acts 2:17-21 And it shall come to pass ‘in the last days’, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:

Joel 2:28-29 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: 29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids ‘in those days’

Ezekiel 33:6

But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.

Ezekiel 33:7

So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me.

Matthew 24:6-8 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Mark 13:7-8 And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.

Future, Real, during the ‘7 Year Tribulation’;

Revelation; Chapter SIX (6), the ‘start’ of the Tribulation when Christ, the Lamb, opens the first seven (7) SEALS of wrath or judgement against evil man’kind (6).

The following is my discernment and teaching. The Apocalypse is a ‘REVEALING’ or showing what is coming. Chapter six is a 70,000 foot view or general recap of the coming seven (7) year tribulation. It starts off with the revealing of the Beast or Antichrist and ends with the Armageddon battle on the Day or our Lord’s Return to Earth, to ‘rule the nations with an iron rod.’

6 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.

(Commentary; Christ, the Lamb was the ONLY ONE WORTHY in heaven, to have the authority to ‘open’ the seals and start the tribulation)

Revelation 6:2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.

Commentary; the rider is the ‘beast’ or ‘antichrist’. His being clothed in white suggests ‘3’ false righteousness, false peace and false authority. He has a bow, but no arrows. He rules with lies and threats, but no military or arms. He conquers and subjugates, not with force but with ‘5’ lies, deception, false covenants and false agreements and false promises. He is the world’s greatest ‘political’ leader and deceiver. He is the one who ‘confirms the false covenant of seven years with Jacob’ which starts the tribulation. You should know now of who I speak. His ‘crown’ represents authority, rulership and position. It even literally represents his ‘position’ as Crown Prince, once the tribulation begins. My discernment is that the ‘white horse upon which he sits’ is symbolically a white Arabian stallion.

3 And when he had opened the second (2) seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.

4 And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.

Commentary; ‘Rumours and Threats of Wars’ are no longer threats, but reality. War will literally ‘break out’ across the earth as nations wage war against one another. This is NOT Armageddon or WWWIII. They are fighting each other, not a common enemy or common threat. Different countries have differences between each other, and no one in particular … except perhaps for the ‘King of the East.’ This is my discernment. ‘Great Sword’ suggests great military technology, as a sword is a reference to military arms. Humanity has more destructive military power at its fingertips now than at any point in human history.

5 And when he had opened the third (3) seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.

Commentary; balances are symbolic for economic transactions and ‘prices’ for things such as wheat and barley grain, bread, olive oil, wine, various food commodities. These are common throughout the world and are considered by most as the ‘staples of life or living.’

6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

Commentary; The world will have reached a point of ‘climate apartheid’ where only the wealthy can afford basic food resources in the face of fatal droughts, famine, locust swarms and heatwaves, while the rest of the world suffers. Only the extreme rich can afford expensive cooking oil, baked pastries and loaves of multi-grain breads, fancy wines and related luxurious food stuffs. Yet, the ‘average peasant’ has to work for an entire day’s wages just to be able to buy enough wheat to make a loaf of bread. Great and severe income inequality is rampant worldwide. The ‘few’ own a massive disproportion of the earth’s wealth and bounty. Billionaires vs billions of poor. The ‘Crown Prince’ owns 60,000 (6) tonnes of wheat in his store houses or graineries while the few grain silos in the Port of Lebanon were destroyed and its people are threatened with expensive grain shortages that require humanitarian assistance.

7 And when he had opened the fourth (4) seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.

8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

Commentary; ‘pale’ suggests disease, death and dying. Disease and death are the normal results for those subjected to endless warring. Cholera, famine, infection, no clean water, no housing, no medicine, no hospitals, etc., all play a part in continuing to kill those who were not killed in direct fighting. These are normally the ‘innocent’ or the civilians, not the military. Hell follows, why? Because the vast majority of peoples in Asia, Africa, the Middle East and elsewhere have rejected the gospel of salvation by Jesus Christ for just over 2,000 years. They follow Satan’s lies (Islam) and deceptions with other false religions (Hindu deities) and various deceiving doctrines. Even though they appear ‘innocent’ by the world’s standards, they are none-the-less ‘unsaved’ because of their rejection of Christ. Time is up, they unfortunately die because of the effects of war, in an unsaved state … hence ‘hell awaits them’. This is truth.

Wall Street is heading into a summer from hell — a period of extreme volatility that top investors say will bring a near-biblical reckoning

Business Insider Linette Lopez May 15, 2022

Welcome to Wall Street’s summer from hell: a period of extreme volatility and uncertainty that will bring a near-biblical reckoning to markets. The last will become first, and the first will become last. 

After years of inflating, it’s becoming clear that the “everything bubble” has burst. Since the start of 2022, the S&P 500 has fallen by more than 18%, and the tech-heavy Nasdaq is down almost 30%. A punishing combination of still hot inflation, hiked interest rates, war in Europe, lockdowns in China, unprofitable companies facing reality, and recession fears is making it clear that this isn’t just a short-term drawdown — it’s a pivotal shift for markets.

“I think that no one really has a clue, that’s my take,” one seasoned investor told me. 

“If the equity markets sell 30% from here, I would be buying most likely then,” he continued, before changing his mind and correcting himself.

This kind of confusion and trepidation is gripping Wall Street ever tighter as the weather heats up. The seasoned investor, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to freely discuss his strategy, told me that there are too many variables affecting the market — from Putin’s mood to the price of potash — to consider when trying to position for the future. Too many things that could still go the wrong direction, making it impossible to tell whether an additional 30% sell-off from here would actually be the bottom. If the stock market continues to decline that much, he doesn’t know what he’ll do.

There is always money to be made in choppy markets — after all, there are two sides to every trade — but bear cycles like this one are especially dangerous because they can turn around violently. Not only do investors have to worry about stocks cratering all around them, but they also have to be ready for face-ripping rallies that can appear like storms out of nowhere and leave all but the most nimble investors behind. 

The markets have turned into an advanced adult swim. Unless you are a seasoned practitioner, I suggest you avoid looking at your 401(k) until next year. No one really knows where the bottom is, and no one really knows what’s going to happen next. This summer, the market is melting, and investors big and small are going to get burned before it’s over.

The heat keeps rising

For the past 10 years, Wall Street’s summers have generally been free and easy. Driven by low interest rates, cheap debt, and a stable economy, stocks have been on a decadelong upswing with few hiccups along the way. And during the pandemic the market went absolutely bonkers. Investor enthusiasm and the sudden injection of stimulus checks pushed the boom to the point that just about any company could go public, even a New Jersey deli. The markets hit record highs seemingly daily. Stock promoters like the venture capitalist Chamath Palihapitiya and the tech investor Cathie Wood gained TikTok-influencer status among enthusiastic retail investors. Wood and Palihapitiya encouraged their followers to throw away finance’s silly rules about cash flow and debt and to bet on long-shot companies with emerging (often questionable) technology. Wall Street — which never lets a good fad go to waste — forgot itself as well. The money sloshing around in all this goofiness was too good to pass up.

But all that changed over the past six months — and the market has gone from free and easy to a chaotic mess. This level of destruction feels stunning, but it really shouldn’t: Wall Street always knew this day would come. Investors have talked about it incessantly for years. It’s just that, as with the rapture, no one knew the hour or the day. We also didn’t know how savage it would be when it arrived.

Inflation did not appear in America quietly or subtly. It started rising in earnest in the summer of 2021 and recently hit levels unseen since the 1980s. The consumer price index reached 8.3% in April — a bit down from recent records, but still more than four times what the Federal Reserve wants. As a result, the Fed has little choice but to raise interest rates, a move that may be good for the economy in the long run but would crush stocks in the interim.

The pressures pushing up prices are also coming from around the world. China has imposed widespread pandemic lockdowns in cities including Shanghai, home of the world’s biggest port, which is experiencing major delays. Throw in a trucking problem and factory closures and what you get is a massive drop in exports and higher prices for US consumers.

“Now people are asking on conference calls which part of your supply chains are in China,” Justin Simon, a portfolio manager at Jasper Capital, told me. “From a geopolitical standpoint I think that’s really interesting.” 

The heat from abroad is coming not just from China. Russia’s attack on Ukraine is putting pressure on the prices of food and energy supplies, adding uncertainty to what are already the most volatile components of inflation. Russia’s new pariah status is also making companies and investors reconsider where and how they do business. The theory that by trading with a country the US can make it more democratic has fallen by the wayside, so politics have to considered. We do business only with our friends now. Instead of hyperefficiency — putting factories in any country, no matter its domestic politics, as long as it makes production cheaper — investors now want more control and redundancy in the supply chain, so that one broken link doesn’t throw off an entire system. 

The world of banking is well aware of this shift. JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon told Bloomberg that “the Cold War is back” and that we need more coordination with our allies “not just for military purposes but for global, economic, strategic investment purposes.” Bringing pieces of the supply chain back to the US that we once sent abroad — defense contractors and metals and fertilizer and oil — will be expensive. But it’s worth the expense.

“You know there are supply issues coming, but you don’t know where they are,” said the seasoned investor, who also oversees industrial and manufacturing companies. “It’s all of this whack-a-mole shit where you don’t know which part of the supply chain will be screwed up.”

Amid the raging inflation, supply-chain bedlam, and geopolitical pressure, Chairman Jerome Powell and the Federal Reserve are doing their best to slow runaway prices. The Fed raised interest rates by 0.5 points in early May — the first half-percentage-point hike in 22 years — and signaled that more big hikes are on the way. The idea is that higher interest rates will make it more expensive for businesses and households to take out loans, slowing the economy and cooling off price increases. 

The stomach-churning question is whether the Fed can do just enough of this easing without tipping us into recession. It was already going to take an Olympic gymnast’s level of balance and skill to stick this landing. Now, with the war in Ukraine and the pandemic’s grip on China, it’s as if the gymnast’s balance beam has been greased and there’s been an oil spill on the mat.

Some of these are short-term challenges. But some are not. The European Union seems determined to wean itself off Russian gas. Globalization is being rethought, especially in the technology and defense sectors. And the US’s relationship with China is only getting colder. All of that requires a fundamental restructuring of financial machinery — of where money flows and why. Those sorts of recalibrations don’t come easy, and they usually cause a lot of pain along the way.

This is the kind of market that turns geniuses into idiots

In this environment, some investors, like Simon, the portfolio manager at Jasper Capital, prefer to take some cash out of the market and wait. He’s up double digits in the year to date. “I really hit it this spring,” he said, “because I was long oil and gas and I was short Cathie Wood.” (That is to say, he was short the early-stage tech companies she bets on.)

Wood’s flagship ETF — which returned 156% in 2020 — is down 75% from its record high and about 60% this year. In other words, Simon got ahead of one of the key pieces of the market’s meltdown: the tech collapse. For years Wall Street’s returns have been bolstered by a tech gold rush that relied on low interest rates and cheap debt to fuel companies that promised grand visions of the future but made no profits. But in a world where borrowing money costs more, dreams of a far-off future don’t matter nearly as much as cold hard cash in the present.

“Tech is a flywheel,” Simon explained. “When money comes in, Silicon Valley hires up, and companies start using each other’s services. They are all users of each other’s technology — premium LinkedIn accounts, buying Apple computers, using Salesforce, housing their data at Amazon.” But now that intermingled success is turning into an industrywide tailspin.

It’s not just the Woods of the world getting slammed by the tech destruction. In April, Bill Ackman, a Wall Street golden boy who runs Pershing Square Asset Management, announced that he had lost $400 million on his investment in Netflix — a position he’d announced just three months earlier to much fanfare

In what was essentially a non-apology apology letter to clients, Ackman explained that there was nothing wrong with Netflix’s product or its management. Conditions (interest rates) just change, and, Ackman wrote, “in light of recent events, we have lost confidence in our ability to predict the company’s future prospects with a sufficient degree of certainty.”

Like a lot of tech companies experiencing extreme trauma in the stock market, Netflix has always relied on user growth to impress investors, but fueled that growth with a boatload of spending and debt. Companies like this were the darlings of the past decade-plus. Money was so easy to borrow that they didn’t have to make any. They could just take on debt and show investors how much they were growing.

“The kiss of death for tech is when tech starts talking profitability — then the tide goes out and you’ll figure out who’s been swimming naked,” Simon said.

And profitability is what Silicon Valley is talking about right now. Uber’s CEO basically gave a sermon about it last week and said that going forward hiring would be a “privilege.” Meta is having a cost-cutting push. And so many fintech companies are having layoffs, it’ll make your head spin. Even some of the most resilient tech giants are taking it on the chin — Apple just lost its status as the most valuable company in the world and is down 20% for the year

This is not a drill. A whole lot of money just evaporated, and a lot more is probably about to disappear along with it.

Have a great summer, Wall Street

In a market move as dramatic as this one, investment firms (especially big ones) can get trapped like a deer in headlights. Theoretically, they could just start buying other assets, but that’s not how Wall Street works in practice. It is not easy for an investment firm to just change its strategy. For one thing, clients bought in because of the strategy you were selling — they like to see more of what’s working.

For another, finance guys buy what they know. And right now a lot of Wall Street is staffed by people who know how to make money on high-growth, cash-poor tech stocks. They do not know a world where companies have to make money to be valuable. They know how to value tech companies, not energy companies. They know about software, not supply chains. This is the kind of moment for which the phrase “adapt or die” was invented, and that adaptation could take years, not weeks or months.

For most of the financial world, this summer will be about long hours and mitigating losses. Last year risk managers and prime brokers (bankers who service financial firms) could probably spend the summer in the Hamptons. This year they will need to spend time in the office, putting out fires and watching their clients’ portfolios get blown to smithereens. Sometimes that’s the job.

I don’t blame you at all if you don’t feel the least bit sorry for any of these billionaires or the millionaires who work for them. And perhaps you have the time and discipline to ignore your 401(k) until the market bounces back — that would be wise. But consider, if you can find it in your heart, the retail investors who got into the market while they thought the getting was good and are now getting creamed. They might not have been the most informed investors, but they were mostly just regular people. And according to Morgan Stanley, they’ve lost all those returns. In a telltale sign that the party is over, Robinhood, the once ubiquitous trading app, is going through a round of layoffs, and crypto is getting slaughtered too (don’t say we didn’t warn you there).

There are three ways this can end. The Fed could pull off its Olympian balancing act, meaning the US would see a brief period of slower growth but inflation would recede and things would go back to normal (whatever that means now). Another option is stagflation — that means the Fed’s interest-rate hikes are unable to tame inflation but the economy still slows, leading to a double whammy of high prices and miserable unemployment. Lastly, interest-rate hikes could seize up lending in the US, screw up our currently robust jobs market, and push us into a recession.

Two of those three options are painful, but there’s little for Wall Street (and everyone else) to do in the interim except sweat it out. That powerlessness is what makes this moment so hellish, but try not to fret. The next market we meet will offer opportunities for all kinds of investors. Unfortunately, in the meantime, we have to watch this market burn.

8 References to ‘BE WATCHING or WATCHFUL.’ ‘8’ indicates that a new ‘era or epoch’ is arriving. Be it the rapture, the tribulation, the year of the Jews redemption or the year of the onset (2028/29) of the 1000 year millennial reign of Christ (2028/29-3028/29).

Matthew 24:42; Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

Matthew 25:13; Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Mark 13:35; Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning.

Luke 21:36; Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man

Luke 12:37-39; Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.

Make Your Decision for Christ NOW!!!!!!! Time is Up!!!!!!!

Jesus Christ’s Offer of Salvation:

The ABCs of Salvation through Jesus Christ (the Lamb)

A. Admit/Acknowledge/Accept that you are sinner. Ask God’s forgiveness and repent of your sins.

. . . “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23).

. . . “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.” (Romans 3:10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.” (1 John 1:8).

B. Believe Jesus is Lord. Believe that Jesus Christ is who He claimed to be; that He was both fully God and fully man and that we are saved through His death, burial, and resurrection. Put your trust in Him as your only hope of salvation. Become a son or daughter of God by receiving Christ.

. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:15-17). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).

C. Call upon His name, Confess with your heart and with your lips that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.

. . . “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (John 1:8-10).

. . . “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. (John 2:2).

. . . “In this was manifested the love of god toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.” (1 John 4:9, 14-15).

. . . “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).

. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).

. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).
