When a financial expert predicts a stock market crash every year eventually they will get it right.
I get tired of these articles and videos warning us of the impending stock market crash. Financial Expert John Doe predicted the 2008 crash, now he says look out in 2013… I mean 2014… actually it’s 2015… but really watch out in 2016 it’s coming.
Are we in bad fiscal shape in this country? Sure. Is a stock market crash looming? I couldn’t tell you and apparently neither can any of these experts. I don’t have the expertise about financial markets to really dig into this subject but what I do know is; I have heard warnings about an impending stock market crash every year since at least 2010. I’m going to try to compile a list of some of the market crash predictions and the results from the stock market that year…
It’s actually a little hard to find past stock market prediction crashes because Google is already flooded with 2016 stock market crash predictions.

Stock Market Ends 2013 at an all time high – Oops no crash
This is the point where I found an article from an actual finance website going over a lot of these predictions and I stopped looking for my own, but I think even these 2 years prove my point. We’ve had some hard times in the stock market like in 2001 and 2008 (I remained gainfully employed and able to pay my bills so these recessions didn’t hurt me too much). There very well could be harder times ahead. But how are we supposed to know? There are lots of pastors or “prophets” that are predicting a good 2016 for Christians. Other people are predicting a bad 2016 for Christians (even the appearance of the antichrist) add to that the doom predicted by financial experts and the release coming because of the shemitah and year of jubilee I don’t know how we are going to get out of 2016 alive!
I am trying to be obedient to Jesus more. There was a time when I thought we needed to fill up our unused bathroom with food and supplies. At this time I don’t feel like that is necessary. If I feel God wants me to do that apart from the feelings from fear mongers I will. I’m trying to listen to Jesus more these days…
Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
