There are three questions that are being asked a lot nowadays:
Where in the world are we?
How did we get here?
What comes next?
I’m not an expert in international relations or economics. I only know of two places to turn for answers: history and the Bible. By now, we should know that history runs in cycles, and the Bible says it will be so. What happened in the past is the key to the future, as it shapes repeated images yet to be seen.
In the past 150 years, we have seen cycles of economic boom, followed by a bust, followed by hard times, followed by war in one form or another. Does the Bible give us any idea of why this happens? Yes, it does. I commend to your reading Deuteronomy, chapter 28.
