The Economic Tsunami is Coming (Move to Higher Ground Quickly)

At first glance, the economic news today seems quite confusing. The United States’ economic fundamentals are indicating that a major disaster is looming on the near horizon. The nation debt is soaring even as the FED inflates the money supply and injects new capital in its failing banking system.

While much of the mainstream media talks about the $700 billion “bailout package” passed by Congress (to this nation’s detriment), few are noticing the nearly $440 billion per DAY that is being pumped into the U.S. banking system outside of that “package” in order to prop up the failing system. With the U.S. financial system now essentially nationalized, bankruptcies rising, mortgage defaults soaring, real estate markets rapidly falling, and the DOW down over 5,000 point from its high just a year ago—major economic collapse in surely eminent.

Yet in spite of the historical tendency for the prices of strategic commodities such as gold, silver, and oil to rise in the midst of such an economic turmoil, they are actually plunging in advance of the economic disaster that is sure to come. What is up with this? And why are so many financial experts yet saying this trend will reverse BIG… and very soon? The answer, my friends, can be found in the very term often used to describe the catastrophe to come: An Economic Tsunami.

In studying the natural phenomena of a tsunami wave, you will quickly discover that the waters near the shoreline of “ground zero” actually recede in advance of the coming waves. This tendency is due to the fact that the coming tsunami waves are literally feeding themselves with the waters closer to shore, even as they grow in size and intensity as they close toward the coast. As the following animation both explains and demonstrates, the receding waters are not to be interpreted as mere curiosities… but rather, warning signs of the disaster that is to soon come:

It is interesting to note that the above scientific explanation warns that tsunamis come in several waves. In a similar way, the coming economic tsunami will come in several waves and bring tremendous destruction to the U.S. (and thus, global) economic and banking systems.

Moreover, just like was explained concerning a natural tsunami occurrence in the video, the coming economic tsunami is building strength. My friends, it is time to run for “high ground” by buying up all the silver and gold you can locally at these amazingly reduced prices, and to quickly build your own “financial ark” in preparation for what is to soon come. The following articles will help you find your bearings in these confusing times, and provide you with additional focus and clarity on what paths to quickly follow to safety:

To learn more about me and my credibility on discussing these subjects, click on the “Who is Rich Vermillion” tab at the top of this blog to read a biography written by someone who has known me for years.

I will be writing more on these topics later, but I am currently in the middle of a major ministry project. However, in the light of the current economic trends and “signs” of the coming tsunami, I had to take a few minutes away from the other project to write this quick warning for your benefit.

Please do NOT delay to take action quickly. The economic “tsunami” is surely coming, and the current trends in gold/silver prices give you an excellent opportunity to build your own “financial ark” in preparation for what is just a short time away. My family and I—and many of our friends—have already built our “arks”… and we continue to add “more room” to them daily. I emphatically urge you to do the same, in all haste, even as Noah did:

By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family. (Hebrews 11:7, NIV)

My brothers and sisters: Be “moved with holy fear” (i.e. not an immobilizing terror, but a sober realization of what is going on coupled with a strong sense of self-preservation). Quickly start building your own “financial arks” without delay. And may God bless you and all that is yours as you follow Him, and both pursue and act on wisdom speedily with all your heart.

In Jesus,

  1. Rich,

    I do not know you or how i got on your email list [Rich Note: Well, apparently somebody added you on your behalf, but I am certainly glad you found us], but after briefly reviewing your content I would not resist your perspective on a coming wave of challenges. However, the whole idea to go build your Ark with Gold and dig in etc, etc seems so flesh driven for self-presevation. Granted some people can afford to do such, but the majority of at least Americans cannot. Where does trusting in God come into play for our potection and provisions. We find that in the old testament that God’s prophet was even provided for and feed by the ravens of air. My God is a great God who can supply my needs, turn water into wine , mutiple fish and bread and even made the widows oil supply to last as needed when faith was released. As much as I want to run for the hillls and stock pile Gold I believe it lacks faith in God to lead, provide and protect His people according to His divine will. Y2K was another example of fear and self preservation that took many believers to the hills almost a decade ago. Let’s promote being prepared with wisdom, faith and confidence in God for meeting our needs. Best Regards.

    Peter M. Pastor

    Rich Note: Thank you, Peter, for sharing your thoughts. I have replied below. God bless you, and thank you for being so open minded.

  2. Thank you again, Peter, for sharing your thoughts in your comment post above. I am especially blessed that you are open-minded and considering these things soberly and thoughtfully. God bless you, sir.

    I certainly do agree in God’s miraculous provision and have experienced it many times before myself. Our Father has certainly provided us rich and abundant resources through His work on the cross of Jesus. In fact, His promise to us at the start of Ephesians that, “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ” means also that our material blessing is already ours in Christ awaiting the prayers and faith necessary to bring them into physical manifestation. I know that, and please do not interpret these articles as being opposed to that Bible truth in any way.

    On the other hand, Paul continued a few verses later in Ephesians, “… Which He lavished upon us in every kind of wisdom and understanding (practical insight and prudence), making known to us the mystery (secret) of His will (of His plan, of His purpose).” (Amplified) We preachers have been too busy emphasizing through the years the spiritual side of things, and have ignored the practical side of Scripture. Which side is emphasized in Proverbs? The practical wisdom that comes from God (through the meditation of His word) that can be applied daily to our lives. We need BOTH the spiritual wisdom and resources afforded us as believers, AND the practical wisdom of God applied to our lives. Consequently, the Bible provides us with both of these.

    That is my point in these articles: If believers will get busy applying the practical side of Scripture to their lives, and scrape up whatever resources they can (e.g. selling unnecessary possessions so they can buy silver/gold locally, or wherever they can get it, just like I did) and obtain precious metals… then they will be in a PROVISIONAL position (like Joseph in Egypt was) to be a BLESSING to others during the coming catastrophe, rather than on their knees trying to get heavenly provision for their own survival after the economic collapse comes. In other words, the “head and not the tail, above only and not beneath” because they obeyed the practical aspects of Scripture for their lives (Deuteronomy 28:1-14).

    I wrote a book on what happened in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina (Angel Flight 44) and I know from firsthand research what severe struggles even Christians went through in the midst of that disaster. Did believers get miraculous provision? Yes! Did they go sometimes days without food too? Yes! And when the provision finally came, it was only a survival provision for most.

    But if believers can be prepared ahead of time for this next disaster, then they will be in a position to get the Gospel preached like never before to a hurting and bewildered population… rather than wandering around with the same bewilderment themselves. Why else does God our Father raise up prophets to sound the alarm if not to have His children get ready? Why did Noah build an ark, and not just pray? (I know you already see my point, but I am elaborating for others who might read this.)

    I will be writing more and more (probably also doing video blog posts) as time goes on, detailing from the Bible very practical and godly strategies that Christians can employ immediately for their own provision. In the mean time, I encourage them to pray, read these posts already up (and third-party resources linked herein), watch the videos, and then pray for a miraculous provision like the one Jesus’ step-father received before he had to make sudden preparation to avoid disaster: “And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh….Now when they had departed, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream, saying, ‘Arise, take the young Child and His mother, flee to Egypt, and stay there until I bring you word; for Herod will seek the young Child to destroy Him.’ When he arose, he took the young Child and His mother by night and departed for Egypt,…” (Matthew 2)

    I understand your feeling about the urgency of my posts, that it seems “Y2K-ish” to you, but how extreme is it to flee with your family in the middle of the night while your neighbors and friends are asleep… without even saying goodbye? My brother, the times are serious, and the prophetic call is clear. Please keep in mind that I was as ignorant as a jay-bird about these things until the Lord Himself interrupted my naivete with the Word of the Lord about these coming events and told me to study and prepare. These are prophetic times, they call for extreme measures. Remember: Like the Joseph and Mary example above, the Bible is FULL of extreme people who did extreme things…and got extremely blessed as a result.

    I appreciate you, Pastor Peter, and truly thank you for your commentary. It gave me an excellent opportunity to clarify my point somewhat. Thanks for taking the time.

    In Jesus,


  3. Rich,

    As a pastor I know the challenge of communicating these truths of our current economic stiuation. Continue the work! Isn’t it interesting how a message so simple is seen as so revolutionary? As God’s children, it’s time that we see with their eyes, hear with our ears, and understand with our hearts. Wake up church!

  4. Hi Rich

    Is it too late to buy silver at todys rates? $26.00? Or do you thik there is still time to get on?
    I appreciate your writings, I have stocked up a bit of silver but wonder if I should purchase more, as I am coming into a bit of money shortly.

    • Hello Arie,

      Silver is still way undervalued today in reference to the U.S. dollar, as is also gold. Despite all the “bubble” talk out there by a handful of nay-sayers, the price is still below what the market could be bearing right now if it was not for U.S. government and bank manipulation of the markets for many decades (i.e. to make the U.S. dollar look good, and to fraudulently milk investors of their wealth). Here is a recent article about two lawsuits by investors, and then here and here are more articles about two new class-action law suits: All of which suits are being brought against some of the alleged market manipulators. These are in the wake of CFTC Commissioner Bart Chilton’s recent public comments about the ongoing silver market manipulation, and the need to prosecute the perpetrators (though he did not give names).

      So silver is still a bargain, and likely will be until it approaches $100/ounce (believe it or not) with the current market trajectory and monetary circumstances. However, remember also that gold and silver are both STOREHOUSES of value and not mere investments. In other words, they are REAL money with intrinsic value, while paper-currencies are defaulted debt obligations which governments have NO intention of every paying. So as hyperinflation begins to vamp up soon (thanks to the FED and other factors) gold and silver will preserve wealth merely by the fact that they cannot be “printed” into infinity by governments or central banks gone insane.

      Historical example: In the hyperinflation that occurred in Weimar Germany from 1919 to November 1923, those with the foresight to convert their German Marks (GM) into gold or silver before the crisis (also into competing currencies backed by gold, which do not presently exist today) were able to buy up the bargains when a loaf of bread reached over one million GM per loaf. It has been said that an investor could buy an entire city block of commercial buildings during the peak of the hyperinflation for a mere one ounce of gold. So converting paper-currency (i.e. dollars) into silver and gold is a preservation necessity for your wealth first of all, and secondly, still an amazing bargain at these prices (especially in the face of future hyperinflation in multiple world currencies).

      Depending on how much money you are coming into soon, you may want to consider a bi-metallic mix in both gold and silver, since they each can have different volatility and spikes in value at times. Regardless, be sure you ONLY buy physical metal (either in-hand or in-vault) and not EFTs and other forms of “paper bullion” substitutes. The “paper” bullion market is a fractional reserve Ponzi scheme that is already beginning to slowly unravel. So you certainly do not want to put your money into such a sinking ship.

      Lastly, let me give you (and everyone else reading this) a bit of advanced GOOD news. I am working on a brand-new financial website right now, and expect to have it ready to launch by next week sometime (Lord willing). It will cover economics from a biblical perspective, but also in accordance with sound monetary science and financial strategies. All my future financial/economic posts will be on that new site from here on out, once it is launched. I trust it will prove to be a VERY beneficial tool in the hands of Christians worldwide (and a refreshing change from the strange and erroneous teaching that has been circulating for decades within the Church). So be sure you are on my Feedburner™ automatic email notifications so you will get the announcement the day when that site is officially launched.

      Thanks for the excellent question. I trust my answer was helpful. You are welcome to post follow-up questions using the “reply” button under this or your original comment.

      Always in Jesus,


      *** Update: The new website has been launched at ***

    • Another quick link to augment what I already wrote above, Arie. This is an article by Jim Rickards – [sorry…this link was deleted because of a malware attack on that page by hackers]. In the light of everything I had written in my last reply yesterday, his brilliant article should put a further sense of urgency in you (and others reading this) to get out of paper-currencies and into hard (real) money: Gold and silver.

      Peace to the brothers and sisters, and love with faith from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Grace to all who love our Lord Jesus Christ with an undying love. (Ephesians 6:23-24, NIV)

      Always in Jesus,
