So who are the forces that might mount such an attack? Rogue nations like Russia, China, Iran, and jihadist organizations like Al Qaeda, Muslim Brotherhood, and ISIS are very much involved in financial warfare.
CBN News spoke with financial advisors about learning tactics for this fight during an economic summit in Bartlesville, OK. – Kevin Freeman, the founder and chairman of the National Security Investment Consultant Institute, or NSIC, told CBN News: “There are a half dozen different kind of systemic attacks that could hit America, whether it’s a cyber attack, which is a really serious problem, one that the national security people call a “cyber Pearl Harbor.”
A DIFFERENT KIND OF WAR
The United States has been at war since 2001, and America must not let down its guard. One of the newer threats to national security is economic warfare. Its goal is to cripple a country’s economy, rendering it weak and ineffective.
When you think of war, images from the battlefield or troops scouring city streets in search of terrorists probably come to mind. Another arena is the financial front. In economic warfare, enemies use financial markets as weapons to attack national interests. Examples of cyber attacks include the recent hacking of Sony and the embarrassment of the military’s Central Command by ISIS. A more feared scenario would be an electromagnetic pulse attack, or EMP, designed to wipe out our electric grid and computer chips across the country.
That’s not all – “There are mercantilist and predatory trade practices; dumping of foreign products on American markets in order to put American businesses out of business,” said John Lenczowski, founder and president of The Institute of World Politics, a national security and international affairs school in Washington, D.

BE PREPARED TO FIGHT ON THE SPIRITUAL FRONT
Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain. —Palm 127:1
We invite you to join with praying people across the nation in rebuilding a prayer shield over the nation by committing to pray at least five-minutes each day asking the LORD to heal our land. We must stand together in rebuilding the spiritual foundation of our country (2 Chronicles 7:14).
Blow the trumpet in Zion; sound the alarm on my holy hill. Let all who live in the land tremble, for the day of the LORD is coming. It is close at hand…..Blow the trumpet in Zion, declare a holy fast, call a sacred assembly…..For the day of the LORD is coming. –Joel 2:1
Blow the trumpet in Zion, consecrate a fast, call a sacred assembly. –Joel 2:15
America will only be blessed when she stands with Israel. Pray that the U. S. and the allied world leaders will govern justly and wisely and do what is right concerning Israel in the sight of Yahweh. Pray for the Western nations to fear the LORD in its dealings with Israel. “For the day of the Lord upon all the nations is near; as you have done, it shall be done to you; your reprisal shall return upon your own head.” (Obadiah 1:15)
O God, do not keep silent; be not quiet, O God, be not still. See how your enemies are astir, how your foes rear their heads. With cunning they conspire against your people; they plot against those you cherish. “Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation, that the name of Israel be remembered no more.” (Psalm 83:1-4)
