Tonight at church my pastor mentioned about someone (a modern prophet) stating that we are just now on the verge of extreme hard times and we need to get better prepared cause we may have to endure some of this if the rapture doesn't take place soon. Well this got me to thinking about a book that I haven't gotten to read yet called "The Turning Point". A non christian book written back in the early 90's by a couple of guys who have been studying past history of all the hard times and major wars. According to them they are predicting that anywhere from 2005 to 2012 (if I remember right) America will enter into another depression followed by major continental wars and it may last 25 years as usual. Well based on both of these prediction and when time is nearer and it looks like they maybe right about there predictions I was thinking maybe it would be best to withdraw what little money that I have in 401k plan and invest it wisely on farm equipment and maybe store cash back to use for trading. But should I keep it all in bills and coins or should I invest it in gold, silver, or diamonds? What would be best to use for trading and buying.
