Stock Market Failure • In 2016, the first wave of baby boomers, that just turned 60 this year, will reach the age of 701/2 and will have to start taking minimum required distributions. • This means they will begin withdrawing money from the stock market (401k's, IRA’s, etc) monthly or annually.

Strategy to Survive and Prosper • Remember Joseph (Genesis 41:1-37) – It is just as I said to Pharaoh: God has shown Pharaoh what he is about to do. Seven years of great abundance are coming throughout the land of Egypt, but seven years of famine will follow them. Then all the abundance in Egypt will be forgotten, and the famine will ravage the land. The abundance in the land will not be remembered, because the famine that follows it will be so severe. Strategy to Survive and Prosper – The reason the dream was given to Pharaoh in two forms is that the matter has been firmly decided by God, and God will do it soon. And now let Pharaoh look for a discerning and wise man and put him in charge of the land of Egypt. – Let Pharaoh appoint commissioners over the land to take a fifth of the harvest of Egypt during the seven years of abundance. Strategy to Survive and Prosper – They should collect all the food of these good years that are coming and store up the grain under the authority of Pharaoh, to be kept in the cities for food. – This food should be held in reserve for the country, to be used during the seven years of famine that will come upon Egypt, so that the country may not be ruined by the famine. Strategy to Survive and Prosper • Joseph’s plan was simple. – Create storage places (Banks) – Throughout the seven years of prosperity, direct everyone to set aside 20% of their harvest in preparation for the years of famine. – This resulted in the Egyptians not only being able to help others, including Joseph’s family, but to prosper at the same time. Strategy to Survive and Prosper • A Joseph plan for today. – Create Your Own Banks using a specially designed Life Insurance policy. – Pay the largest possible premium to buy the least amount of death benefit and still have a contract qualifying legally as life insurance. The excess premium then grows tax-deferred, generating the maximum cash value. Strategy to Survive and Prosper “Properly structured life insurance contracts are the only investment vehicles that accumulate money tax free, allow access to the money tax free, and blossom tax free upon transfer to heirs.” -- Douglas R Andrew Strategy to Survive and Prosper • Advantages of being your own banker. – Do all of your financing of autos, home, children's education etc. with your own bank. – Over time, COMPLETELY RECOVER the cost of everything financed through your own banking system. – Fund your own retirement account free from taxation and government regulations as with IRA's, 401(k)'s, etc Strategy to Survive and Prosper – Pass a wealth legacy to your children and future generations. – Practice stewardship based on biblical values rather than those of the current economic system.
