Sorry about Friday. We lost power here in the studio on Friday. Wow, where'd the intro go? Just poof, disappears. We lost power here in the studio halfway through the show on Friday.
That was a bummer. Michelle Wodehouse was in. She's awesome.
Great mind. Loves the Lord. Understands the world of politics. Ran in the primary earlier this year.
Unfortunately, did not win. Hopefully, she'll run again. So, she was in here on Friday. She'll be back a week from this Friday, filling in for me. That's our anniversary weekend. So, I'll be gone that Friday. And back in the saddle, doing live from an ethics conference that Monday and Tuesday at Colonial, well, it used to be Colonial Baptist here in the area.
Now, Shepherds Church and Shepherds Seminary, Pastor Steven Davey, one of the best preachers of God's Word on the East Coast. So, they're doing an ethics convention or an ethics conference. I'll be there. I'll broadcast from there. That Monday and Tuesday, that's like the 17th and 18th. Is that right?
Yeah, I think it's the 17th and 18th. So, I'll be broadcasting live on site there for that. So, that should be a couple of great shows focusing on Christian ethics. And tomorrow, my good friend, Stu Epperson Jr., who runs the owner operator of Truth Radio Network, which many of you are listening on, he'll be filling in for me tomorrow because he's got his longtime friend, Dr. David Jeremiah, will be on with Stu tomorrow. Dr. Jeremiah is coming to town this week. He's here, I think it's this Thursday, October 6th at the PNC Arena. There'll be probably 8,000, 9,000, 10,000 plus people there. So, that's this Thursday.
If you go to Turning Point, you can find the tickets for that. So, he'll have Dr. Jeremiah on the show tomorrow. I'm nowhere on the page.
I'm going all the way. I'm all the way down the page on foxnews.com. And nowhere on there.
Now, I'm on the features and faces. It's not there. Sponsored stories, it's not there.
And I'm in all kinds of goofy stuff at the bottom of the page. It's not there. It's not there. It's not there. We just surpassed 31 trillion dollars in debt.
And I'm going to unpack this for you. And it's not anywhere. Nobody's talking about it. Nobody's talking about this. Congress doesn't want to talk about it. The president doesn't want to talk about it. Democrats don't want to talk about it. Republicans don't want to talk about it. 31 trillion dollars. And guess what? I'm looking at the U.S. debt clock.
If you're watching on YouTube, if you're watching on Facebook, we're banned on YouTube right now because I talked about COVID again. If you're watching on Facebook live, you see that big number behind me on the screen? 31 trillion, 43 billion, 484 million, and then it's going up. Do you see that? See how it's climbing?
It's climbing. Our national debt is climbing a hundred thousand dollars every four seconds. A hundred thousand dollars more in debt every four seconds. Oh, there goes another hundred thousand. Oh, there goes it.
You believe that? Four seconds. Every four seconds we add a hundred thousand dollars to our national debt. So it's rolling over every four seconds.
We just went to 900,000. Another four seconds. We're almost there and there it is.
Nobody's talking about this. By the way, raise your hand if you're a taxpayer. If you're a taxpayer, do you pay federal taxes? Raise your hand. Everybody raise your hand. Your share of the 31 trillion is $246,689. That's your share. That's taxpayers. Now let's include everybody. Every single citizen.
All the legal ones. You know what your share is? Your kids share. How many kids do you have?
I got four kids. Most of them are all taxpayers now. So they're all in that $246,000. But if your kids are young, debt per citizen, that's all 340 million Americans. That debt per citizen.
You divide 31 trillion by 340 million. That's $93,000 per citizen is your debt. How are you going to deal with that? By the way, and we yell at the federal government, right? But what about personal debt? Student loan debt, $1.7 trillion. That's $40,000 per student that's gone to college. Private education, public education, FAFSA, public loans, private loans, $1.7 trillion.
That's $40,183 per student. What about credit card debt? Certainly, we're doing better than that, right America?
Happy days are here again. That's $1.1 trillion in credit card debt. That's an average of $7,115 per credit card holder that we have in debt. Right?
You do that. Then let's go to the dirty little secret that nobody ever talks about. We're not talking about $31 trillion in debt.
We don't talk about that. Because that excoriates both sides. That's Republicans and Democrats. Starting with Bush 43, then Obama, then Trump, and now Biden.
Hockey stick growth curve. It's both sides. They're all busted on this. But let's talk about the other elephant in the room, unfunded liabilities. Whenever you hear that, unfunded liabilities, that's social security liability, Medicare liability, pension and military liability. It goes out over the next 75 years. They project this.
The federal government does this. Do you know what our unfunded US liabilities are over the next 75 years? $171 trillion.
How do we solve this? How do we get out of this? What's going to happen to our kids and their kids and their kids and their kids and their kids? I got a lot more to talk about since nobody else is I will.
We'll be right back. to the US national debt every four seconds. So it just went to 200.
I'm looking at the 200,000 and 300,000 and 400,000 and 500,000. So we're going to add a million, right? Every 40 seconds. A million.
Every 40 seconds. Okay. So I'll figure it out in the next break how much national debt we'll add during the time of this show. And then I mentioned, because I'm looking at the US national debt clock.
If you've never spent some time here, you need to. Okay. This is insurmountable. But Steve, we've got all these energy reserves, right?
We've got so much stuff under the ground, right? Yeah. I'm going to get to that in a second. Literally, I don't know what to tell my students. I literally, I got no answer for them here. Like, how do we do this?
How do we survive this? US national debt clock. Okay. It's 31 trillion. On the US national debt clock, usdebtclock.org.
I suggest you go there if you can. Then you can do a debt clock time machine. Okay. So I can go forward.
I'm going forward to 2026. Instead of 31 trillion, it's 40 trillion, 453 billion. Okay.
Almost 40.5 trillion. Four years from now. Okay. Now let's go back. Let's go back to the good old days. Let's go back to 2000, pre 9-11. In 2000, we were at 5.6 trillion. Today, we passed 31 trillion. So in 22 years, we've gone from 5.6 trillion to 31 trillion. From 2000 to 2026, we're going to go from 5.6 trillion to 40 trillion. But the dirt, excuse me, the dirty little secret.
You have to slide down the page. We look at personal debt, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, budget items. You know, like this year, the last fiscal year, the federal government's about to hit 6 trillion in spending, or about 1.1 trillion in deficit. Oh, only 1.1 trillion.
Oh, that's no big deal. Okay. Then you slide down, you look at personal debt, credit cards, student debt, yada, yada, yada. It's a train wreck everywhere you go.
Then you come down to the bottom. Okay. Social Security liability, Medicare liability, US unfunded liabilities.
Okay, here's a little story. This is from May of last year. RealClearPolicy.com. At the time, May of last year, 96 trillion in unfunded US Medicare and Social Security benefits. That's just Medicare and Social Security benefits. That's not all the pension stuff and military stuff that's out there. You know, like, you retire after 20 years in the military and you get 80% of your pay or whatever for the rest of your life.
That stuff. 96.3 trillion owed in promise but unfunded Medicare and Social Security benefits. 55 trillion for Medicare, 41 trillion for Social Security.
This is May of last year. While Uncle Sam has $5.9 trillion in assets. Whoa, good. Good job.
That's good. You know, hey, would you guys like that $5.9 trillion in assets? You'd be the richest person in the history of the world by a lot. The 129 trillion owed in bills including military and civilian retirement benefits means the US is in the hole for $123 trillion.
$123 trillion. This is over the next 75 years. So you and I will be dead. Odds are our kids will be close to dying.
I know it's morbid, but it is. But their kids are going to be like in their 50s or whatever, my age. It's a stunning amount coming due over the next 75 years. The Treasury Department sticks its proverbial head in the sand and does not even list the liabilities on the balance sheet of the federal government. But not to worry, taxpayers will not actually be paying for this.
Because, you know, how could they? Instead, older people have been promised these benefits likely will not be paid in full. If by some strange magic, we do manage to pay for these promised benefits, we can't. It is young people who would be saddled with trillions in extra taxes with nothing in return. What?
That doesn't even make any sense. Do you know what the US income tax revenue is right now? US income federal tax revenue.
You know what it is? US federal tax revenue. That's all taxes, okay? All taxes, 4.8 trillion. But we've spent so far in this fiscal year 5.9 trillion, which is why we're 1 trillion in debt, right? Got it? We take in 4.895 trillion, but we spend 5.9 trillion.
Oops, that's a problem. All right, so we don't have enough income. We could tax 100% of everybody's income. Literally take everything. And you still couldn't do this.
You still couldn't do it. Because the gross domestic product, we could take literally everything, okay? The gross domestic product of the entire country is $24 trillion. 24 trillion. That's the gross domestic product in one year of the entire country. Everything we produce and sell. That's the gross domestic product. 24 trillion. So we could take literally everything we sell.
Software, Chick-fil-A sandwiches, Bibles, cars, houses, clothes, the really cool Mach 5, Speed Racer, Star Wars, X-Wing fighter mash-up t-shirt I'm wearing, the Apple Watch I'm wearing, the iPhone 13 that's in my hand, all these cool gadgets, the MacBook Pro in front of me. You sell all that stuff. And all new and used, whatever, that's the gross domestic product. So in one year, that's $24.8 trillion.
Wow, that's awesome. So we'd literally have to sell everything that we produce for the next year to just get close to being out of debt. But is that even possible? It's not.
It's not possible. Tax revenue, you can't tax enough to get us out of that. You can't tax enough right now to pay for one year of federal spending, because one year of federal spending is about $6 trillion. And our US federal tax revenue is $4.8, $4.9 trillion. You're a trillion short, friend. What are you going to do?
Tax 100%? Then you bury everybody and the whole thing falls apart. You kill the golden goose, you got no eggs, right? Now we're not even talking about what's happening in the next 50 to 75 years, which adds over another $100 trillion.
It's unsustainable. But I know what you're thinking, maybe. Steve, but Steve, America has unbelievably untapped oil and natural gas reserves. You know what?
You're right. We do. We have enormous amounts of untapped oil and gas reserves.
How much? I'm so glad you asked. Okay. In the US right now, best estimates, we have about 264 billion, with a B, 264 billion barrels of oil in the ground. Okay.
Offshore, what's part that we control, but where you get into international waters, and then in the ground. Fracking starts to get to a lot of this. Okay. So we have 264 billion barrels of oil in the ground. Okay. Do you know how much we use per day?
How much do we use per day? Well, it doesn't really matter. Let's just set that aside. Let's say we were going to take all 264 billion barrels out of the ground, all 264 billion barrels out of the ground, all 264 billion. And we're going to sell it on the open market, because our boat is sinking. We're going broke, and you're going to starve to death. The whole thing's going to collapse. So you got to deal with this.
Okay. Let's say, let's go forward four years for $40 trillion in debt. Let's pull all the oil, all 264 billion barrels of oil out of the ground. Right now, let's say the prevailing price is 80 bucks a barrel.
It's a little low, but we're in the ballpark. 80 bucks a barrel. And you sell all 264 billion, billion barrels of oil at 80 bucks a barrel. You know how much money you raise? Take a guess.
It's $21 trillion. Think about that for a second. Let that sink in. I'm going to bring this around to a political perspective and an end times perspective when we, by the time we get to the end of the show. All right.
So stay with me. 264 billion barrels of oil in the ground. We pull it all out. We sell it on the open market, $80 a barrel. We raised $21 trillion, which would pay for half of our debt in four years.
Okay. That's not enough, obviously. And that's not even a drop in the bucket when it comes to a hundred trillion in debt over the next 50 years. So let's talk about natural gas when we come back, because we have 473 trillion cubic feet of natural gas under our feet.
What if we sell that? We'll be right back. 31 trillion, 43 billion, 515 million, 300, no, 400 and sorry. Oops. Sorry. It keeps going up.
Yeah. Our US national debt just crossed 31 trillion. I went to Fox news, couldn't find the story. I went to CNN, MSNBC, couldn't find the story. I went to Daily Wire, Ben Shapiro's website. I couldn't find the story.
I finally went to, where did I find it? The epic times. And it was about 30 stories down. US passes 31 trillion first time in history. Nobody's talking about this.
Nobody. Because the numbers are completely untenable. And that's just 30 trillion today. In four years, it's projected to be 40 trillion. In 75 years, we add another 100 to 150 trillion in unfunded liabilities, Medicare, Medicaid, social security, military pensions, military pay, all that stuff. Military pay when you retire, that kind of stuff. And now you're over 100 trillion, 120 trillion, 150 trillion, 200 trillion.
How do you do that? And do those numbers even make sense? Like what is a trillion anyway? Well, one trillion seconds ago, one trillion seconds ago was 31,710 years ago. That's one trillion. One trillion seconds ago was 31,710 years ago. So what's 31 trillion? How long ago is that? 31 trillion seconds is 983,010 years ago.
Basically 983,000 years ago is 31 trillion seconds. And we're in debt, $31 trillion. So what do you do?
How do you work your way out of this? Well, we got to put more Republicans in office. I don't care if you put 435 Republicans in the House, 100 Republicans in the Senate, a Republican in the White House, a Republican Vice President, and nine Republicans on the United States Supreme Court. That's not enough because the numbers aren't there. But Steve, but Steve, what about all our oil reserves? If we just dig now, baby, dig now, dig deep, keep digging. Okay.
Well, I just said that. There's 264 billion barrels of oil in the ground that we control. Okay, 264 billion barrels. I think we consume like 20 million a day. So that's 264 billion. Let's just not take it for ourselves. Let's just sell it because we're so far in debt.
We got to figure out how are we going to cover this? How are we going to pay for 6 trillion a year, plus 31 trillion, then 40 trillion, then 150 trillion in debt. And at that point, the government can't afford the interest payments. The interest payments the interest payments exceed all the taxes you're collecting. And they're bigger than the federal budget right now. The interest payments get that big on $100 trillion. That's why the interest rates matter. When the Fed's raising interest rates, that makes our debt cost more.
Understand? So let's just take all 264 billion barrels of oil out of the ground. We'll sell it for 80 bucks a barrel. Right now the prevailing price today is $88.04.
So we'll sell it for 80. 80 bucks a barrel, 264 billion barrels, and we raise $21 trillion, which can run the federal government right now for three years, or we pay off half of our debt. Okay, but now you've taken all the oil of the ground. We got none. There's none left. You're done. No more oil.
Sorry, everybody. Then what? Well, Steve, what about natural gas? What about natural gas?
Natural gas, that'll do it. Okay, well, we do have 473 trillion cubic feet of untapped natural gas in America. Just so you know, we use about 30 trillion cubic feet a year, which is about almost 16 years worth that we have ourselves. Okay, but let's pull it out of the ground, all 473 trillion cubic feet. Let's not use it ourselves.
So if you have natural gas this winter, good luck with that. We sell it for, the average price right now is $6.80 per 1,000 cubic feet. So we pull it all out of the ground, 473 trillion cubic feet. We sell it all at the prevailing price of $6.80 per 1,000 cubic feet. We raise $2.8 trillion in value. So we take all our oil, and we take all our natural gas, and we raise about $24 trillion. All of it. Then we have none. We sell all of it. Then we have none.
Okay. So what do we do now? How about the Forbes 400? Let's get the rich to pay their fair share. The Forbes 400. Take a guess, friend, at what the combined net worth is at the Forbes 400. Four hundred richest people in America. We can't go after the rich people in Russia and Saudi Arabia and Europe and stuff like that. China.
Can't go after them. This is just America. It's our problem. So the Forbes 400 has a combined net worth of $4 trillion. Four, with a T, trillion trillion dollars. That's a lot of money. Four trillion. Now, if we arrange for some unfortunate accidents, and then we use the death tax, which is currently in place, which basically you go 50% everything over a million, something like that. So that's two trillion. But forget that.
This is so bad. Let's just whack them all, kill all 400 members of the Forbes 400, and institute a 100% death tax. Take it all. That's $4 trillion. That doesn't operate the federal government for a year.
It operates federal government for about nine months. And then you still can't touch the debt, which is $31 trillion, $43 billion, $523 million as of right now. Strike that.
Sorry. It's going to be $524 billion as of right now. Kill them all. Take 100%.
It's $4 trillion. That doesn't work. What are we going to do? I'll be dead.
You'll be dead. Well, now this comes crashing down. So if you have a business that's totally belly up, what do you do with the business? What are your options? Look at America as a business. We're $130, $150 trillion in debt. We can't even afford the interest payments. And what do you do when you got a business that's that belly up? Well, you can scrap it all and sell it, right? Cut it up and sell it. Pay on the dollar. What would you do with another company that could come along and buy it? Kind of just purchase it, absorb its assets, work it in? Is there anybody that could do that as big as America's numbers are?
I don't think so. Maybe you merge. Do you merge with another company? Maybe the president of America and Canada and Mexico get together and they're like, listen, all our ships are going down. We're all going to the bottom of the ocean. Maybe we reimagine our relationship, our sovereignty, and maybe we just become the Americas. And it's North America and it's including Canada and it's Mexico.
And what happens then? We combine all our income. We have some economies of scale. Then we spread out our debt.
No, that's not big enough. So what do you do there? Well, I did look this up earlier today because I talked to my students in all my classes about this eventually. And we talked about it this week and they look at me dumbfounded because they didn't know. They're clueless.
They're clueless what we're doing to them. And nobody wants to talk about it. Republicans don't want to talk about it. Democrats don't talk about it. Nobody takes it seriously. They can't do anything because at this level and the way it's going, there's not really anything you can do. So how about this?
Here's a radical thought. Do you know how much land the federal government owns? Do you know how much land the federal government owns? Just take a guess.
I'll tell you. It's 640 million acres. The federal government currently owns 640 million acres. So let's say we're going to sell all that on the open market. We're going to sell, well, it can't be the open market because we have to raise a certain amount of money. We're just trying to raise 31 trillion. If you divide 31 trillion by 640 million acres, what you come up with is a per acre price of about $48,000. $48,000 per acre, we sell off all 640 million acres that the federal government has and we pay, we can pay off the debt tomorrow. But we've sold 643 million acres of federal land in all the national parks, all that kind of stuff. We sell it. Who would buy that? I don't know.
President Xi, China maybe? They're buying up US farmland right now. Are you guys depressed yet? Good.
I hope you are. You should be despondent at this point because then in the numbers, you just can't make the numbers work. But we can go sell all 640 million acres that the federal government owns and we can raise at $48,000 per acre, even the acre out in the middle of New Mexico that's just dirt and worthless. But you can sell. You go get 48 grand for it. Sell it all 640 million acres and that's enough to pay off our debt right now. But we have another 100 trillion coming at us. And we just sold off all the federal land. Now what do we do?
What happens here? And so that's why, you know what's really funny about this, kind of, if you want to be sick? When they talk about cutting the federal budget or saving a little bit here, hey, we got some programs we're going to save $47 billion.
Isn't that awesome? Let's reach back and pat ourselves on the back. $47 billion is nothing. Statistically, nothing compared to 30 trillion, 40 trillion, 100 trillion, $150 trillion.
You save $60 billion, it's nothing. You have both arms severed and I put a band-aid on your toe. Hey, look, I put a band-aid on your toe. Everything's going to be fine. Uh, bro, both my arms just got cut off. I'm bleeding out. Your band-aid on my toe.
Is it really going to work? Look, we put a band-aid on his toe. That's the joke out of DC. I know I'm being ultra negative, uber skeptical and I'm hammering the entire political process. I know that sounds totally doom and gloom.
Negative, negative, negative. Steve, where's the joy of the Lord? That's coming. Steve, where's the hope? That's coming too. Steve, what do we do?
That's coming too. So we're going to turn this frown upside down in the first segment. How do we deal with this? How do we approach it?
How do we think about it as followers of Jesus Christ? We'll be right back. Welcome back everybody.
This is Steve Noble, The Steve Noble Show. This is exhausting. Thinking about this stuff, reaching, researching this stuff, grabbing a calculator, going down these roads is exhausting.
I do it every year with my students. I take them down this road too and I show them all this stuff and I know, I know what's coming and they're just dumbfounded and they're depressed and they don't understand it and it's overwhelming. And they're like, well, what can we do Mr. Noble?
I'm like, I, I don't, I don't know if there's anything that we can do. I mean, it's 31 trillion now. Nobody's talking about it, including conservative outlets. Epoch Times out of five websites I went to. Fox News, Daily Wire, CNN, MSNBC, Epoch Times. Epoch Times is the only one I could find the story in. It was about number 30 that we just passed 31 trillion.
31 trillion, 43 billion, 540 million and it goes up 100,000 every four seconds. Okay. Is it just us? What's going around, going on around the rest of the world? Then I'm going to turn the frown upside down. Okay. So hold on, hold on, hold on my Christian brothers and sisters. Hold on.
All right. So there's the US. I'm at the, I'm at the world debt clock now, country after country. Then you get China. They're, they're right behind us, 10.8 trillion, but you can't trust any of their numbers, right?
Because we don't know what the truth is there. Japan, Japan, not very big, 126 million people. They're half our population, but they have a $15 trillion national debt.
Germany, 3.4. These are all trillions. The UK, 3.3 trillion. And by the way, UK's debt to GDP ratio is 290%. They got 290% of their GDP debt. So debt is 290% of GDP. So if your GDP is 100, your debt's 290.
Got it? That's a train wreck. India, 2.3 trillion. France, 3.6 trillion. Italy, 3.8 trillion. Brazil, 1.9 trillion. Canada, 1.9 trillion.
Then Argentina, now Argentina. We're back down into the billions, man. Only billions. Korea, 803 billion. Norway, of course there's 5.4 million people, 176 billion in debt. Poland, only 37 million people, but they're $402 billion in debt. And then you look at debt to GDP ratio. That's how much debt compared to how much you produce every year.
Okay. America's at 105%. Japan's at 79%.
That's healthy. Germany's at 139%. UK's at 290%. France is at 222%. Italy's at 130%.
Slide down here. This is mind boggling. Ireland, population 4.8 million. National debt, 363 billion. Debt to GDP, 609%. You make 100, but your debt's 609.
Think you're making your credit card minimum payments on that? You're not. Okay. So it's not just here in America. It's all around the world. So what do you do? What's the answer?
How do we turn that frown upside down? Well, one of the things I want to mention, I've done shows on this in the past. Do you want a really good book to read on it? Get Glenn Beck's book on The Great Reset. So The Great Reset's lurking out there.
Okay. And this is all, they really came out of the closet with The Great Reset. This is the World Economic Forum with COVID.
COVID looked like the golden goose to them. Because it's obvious that we have this whole worldwide problem. We can't communicate.
We're having problems. Millions of people are dying, all that kind of stuff. This is from The Great Reset's website at the World Economic Forum. There's an urgent need for global stakeholders, that means the elites, to cooperate in simultaneously managing the direct consequences of the COVID-19 crisis. To improve the state of the world, the World Economic Forum is starting The Great Reset Initiative.
Wow, that sounds interesting. The context, the COVID-19 crisis and the political, economic and social disruption that has caused is fundamentally changing the traditional context for decision making. The inconsistencies, inadequacies and contradictions of multiple systems from health and financial to energy and education are more exposed than ever amidst a global context of concern for lives, livelihoods and the planet. Big green new deal people. Leaders find themselves at a historic crossroads managing short-term pressures against medium and long-term uncertainties.
No kidding. The opportunity, this is The Great Reset. As we enter a unique window of opportunity to shape the recovery, this initiative will offer insights to help inform all those determining the future state of global relations, that's the elite.
The direction of national economies, the priorities of societies, the nature of business models and the management of a global commons. Wow, this is a big vision. Drawing from the vision and vast expertise of the leaders engaged across the forum's communities, that's the elite. The Great Reset Initiative has a set of dimensions to build a new social contract. Wow, that's a huge phrase. That honors the dignity of every human being according to whom?
The elites. Okay, so that's lurking in the background and isn't this setting up nicely for a great reset? The whole thing's untenable, so what do you do? Do we just at one point hit the reset button?
Thank you Hillary Clinton for that big reset button. And then nobody knows, owes anybody anything, goes back to zero and we restart. But obviously the free market system and communism and socialism, you combine all that over the course of about a thousand years and especially the last hundred years and that's how we got into this mess. So we need to reimagine society as a whole, don't we?
You see where this is going yet? It's all lining up nicely. And so if you study Revelation, if you study end times and you just kind of look at some of the conditions, all these things kind of start to, well, line up. And the book of Revelation points to like there's 10 kingdoms and 10 kings. Can you go from what, 190 countries in the world down to 10 kingdoms?
Well with the debt clock and the financial nightmare we're looking at all over the place, that starts to make some sense, doesn't it? We've got to combine things, rearrange things, do a great reset and now we can get that down to 10 kingdoms and then to manage all of it. I mean we can't have 190 countries with 190 ways of doing business because what we saw with COVID is that it just doesn't work together. There's too many discrepancies and you know what happens? People die as a result of it.
These guys of course don't want to talk about the fact that there's about 40 million abortions worldwide every year but they'll talk about COVID deaths because that gives them an avenue, a path by which to seize control which is exactly what the elites want to do. And they're puppets of the devil and the Antichrist and end times, they just don't know it. But if you believe the Bible, friend, it will come to pass. The overall trajectory of the entire world history is down. There's a massive collapse at the end. You get the tribulation and the great tribulation.
It's just a brain wreck all over the place. And then, praise God, Jesus comes back, ends the whole thing. All of human history comes to a close. The kingdom comes down. Heaven comes down.
Jesus establishes his reign. Those that are outside of Christ spend an eternity in hell. The devil is destroyed. Sin is destroyed for God's sake. Sin is destroyed for God's people. Heaven comes to earth. Earth becomes the location of heaven.
And then, in my sanctified imagination, God opens up the whole playground to his children, the rest of the universe. Are you saying, Steve, we might be able to go visit the rest of the universe? I hope so because right now we think there's 76-tillion stars. That's the latest human estimate. 76-tillion. That's a 70 with 20 zeros after it.
It's even bigger than 31 trillion in debt. And Jesus is coming back. The world's a train wreck before he comes back and then he settles all accounts. Final judgment. Judgment seat of Christ. Final judgment. Everybody is resurrected to face the judgment.
Great white throne judgment. So this is all going in that direction. It's all going to get there. Can you see, friend, how the road is being paved?
Do you see it? The overall degradation of society. Romans 1. We get to the end of Romans chapter 1 and we're clapping. We're giving approval and clapping for each other and our sinful lifestyles. On the way to hell, this is heartbreaking, isn't it?
It's heartbreaking. And there's human carnage all along the way. And every single person that gets caught up in it and run over by it, they're all made in the image of God.
So they all have inestimable worth. That's the sanctity of human life. And there's massive suffering.
And that's horrific and terrible. So in the meantime, what do you do? You do as much as you can. You certainly pray. We got to be praying. You wonder why the Bible tells us to pray for those in authority over us. It's like God knew where things were going. And by the way, when Paul wrote that, Nero was in charge. Pray for those in authority over us because obviously, do they need some divine intervention when it comes to wisdom?
Yeah. So you want to see as many bright spots in the human condition as you can, as the overall trajectory is down until Jesus comes back. But you fight for lives while we're here. We fight for physical sanity while we're here because it affects people.
People made in the image of God that Jesus died for. It all matters. The fight matters. The truth matters.
Care and concern for your neighbor matters. That's all established. But you're not going to change the outcome of the story.
You're not even going to change the arc of the story. As we go down, you can have these, if you're looking on camera on Facebook live, I'm going down with my hand, but it's fishing up and down as it goes down. Right?
It's fishing up and down. So we can have these bright spots, a revival here and there, an awakening here and there, some sanity, some physical sanity here and there. But as I've been describing for most of the show, the physical sanity, a turnaround on this is virtually impossible.
And then you can try a great reset, right? And then you're just falling into the system that's described for us in the book of Revelation. God's way will come to pass. God's will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
It's going to happen. So really the only question for all of us and our kids and their kids is as this human history comes to a close, are you a sheep or are you a goat? Do you go to right in life? Do you go to left in condemnation? And so what's the ultimate playing piece on the table in this gigantic intergalactic game of Monopoly?
What's the giant, what's the park place? Well, what is it? It's the gospel. The gospel is the only thing that gets any individual out of all of this.
It's the only thing. Jesus dying on a cross to pay the price, the propitiation for our sins and then freely offering it to us. None of us deserved it.
None of us can earn it, but he freely goes there while we were at centers Christ dies for us and then he just offers it to you. Yes, in this world you will have trouble. Yes, human history is going to come to a close and it's going to be an ugly path.
It's going to be an ugly ride down to the bottom of the ocean. But in the end, you can have eternity. In the end, you can have paradise. In the end, you can have Christ himself. Do you? Are you going to be in the Titanic at the bottom of the ocean or are you going to be in paradise? What have you done with Jesus? That matters more than anything else I've said in the entire hour. This is Steve Noble on The Steve Noble Show. God willing, I'll talk to you again real soon. And like my dad always used to say, ever forward. Another program powered by the Truth Network.
