Torah Economics and “come out of her” – another update

Wednesday, September 4th, 2013

This author has long argued that the coming worldwide economic meltdown, and the coming world war, are so closely intertwined, both in timing and in cause, that they will ultimately appear to have been almost simultaneous, once the smoke of deception clears.  And it will ultimately be almost impossible for most people to decide “which was the cart, and which was the horse.”

Our Creator hates “dishonest weights and measures,” like the irredeemable, fake, ‘pure fiat’ currencies of the world.  While the Constitution for the United States (back when it still mattered) once declared that “nothing but gold and silver” coin would be minted to serve as “money,” the Word of Yah is no less blunt.   In the Hebrew of the Bible, the word “qesef” just means “silver.”  But it is synonymous with “money”.  And Scripture (Lev. 19:35, Deut. 25:13-15, Proverbs 11:1, 16:11, 20:10,  20:23 and so on) repeatedly calls the corrupt system  of today’s fiat paper currencies an “abomination”.

There has never in history been a fiat currency which has NOT self-destructed.  Generally, the society fails along with the ‘money’.  And as the ultimate demise of the “almighty dollar” draws ever closer, the deceptions and manipulation of formerly-free world markets, from foreign exchange to stocks and bonds to commodities, intensifies.

At the recent Federal Reserve FOMC meeting, the mere suggestion that SOMEDAY, in the unlikely event of economic recovery, the Fed might begin to “taper” its money printing excesses resulted in an immediate worldwide panic in all types of paper assets — from stocks in Asia, Europe, and the US, to government bonds to commodities futures.  If the intent of the “jawboning” was a “beta test” to assess the reaction of investors to even a hint that “easy money” might not flow like cheap booze to winos, the verdict is in.  The “End Of QE” — if it ever happens — will not be pretty.

Analysts who have correctly forecast the continued economic meltdown concluded that the central banks have literally “painted themselves into a corner,” with no escape.  To end the money printing will end the pretense of recovery, and of banking system solvency.  A derivative meltdown and liquidity collapse would follow.  But the alternative, indeed the mathematical certainty, of a debt-based system, is hyperinflation.  Either way, the handwriting is already on the wall.  The final demise of the Almighty Dollar, the world reserve currency, has been “weighed, measured, and divided”.

Indeed, perhaps the most likely scenario at this point is BOTH:  an attempt to “taper” the money-printing extravaganza results in a market panic, followed by a cure of the only “solution” that will be considered — LOTS more money printing.  Hyperinflation is the inevitable result.

Bank accounts in the island nation of Cyprus were recently confiscated in what has now been called a “bail-IN.”  Rather than bailing OUT banksters, the new sham is to force depositors to bail-in, and accept worthless ‘ownership’ of failed financial institutions, via the ruse that they are “creditors” of the bankruptcy.  The nations of Japan and Canada, among others, talk openly now of the option, and having been successfully beta-tested, rest assured that it WILL be used elsewhere, including places that the rubes believe “it could NEVER happen here.”   And remember, they would never tap your phones, either.

As the open and literally “in-your-face” criminality in the world financial system spreads like a cancer, the manipulation of the paper gold and silver markets has become more brazen as well.  In mid-April, over 400 TONS of gold that could not be delivered were “sold” in order to collapse prices and precipitate a liquidation.  Even the most skeptical observers of the sham were forced to admit the obvious.  But as the price of PAPER “gold” and paper “silver” (which exist only in “hypothecated” form as a promise for future delivery which cannot be kept) fell, the supplies of REAL gold and silver coins simply began to dry up, worldwide.  A great “divergence” manifested; “premiums” increased.  Those who wanted to buy real, physical precious metals began to understand that the “price” of the fake stuff in the Crimex and similar manipulated markets had less and less to do with reality.

Watch for a “gold-backed” replacement currency when the dollar and world reserve system implodes.  The problems?  It will be a lie – and you can expect that those who want the PRIVILEGE of “buying and selling” in that new WunderMunny will have to verify their identity somehow.  To prevent crime and money laundering, you will be told.  Think of it as a “mark” — so that the prince of This World knows who serves him.

More and more of the honest economic commentators and advisers are beginning to tell their clients what Revelation 18:4 also counsels:  “Come out of her.”  A system built on lies MUST inevitably collapse.   (And students of the Torah will recognize that indeed this was the function of the “Yovel” or “Jubilee” year:  to RESET the economic system every fifty years, before the burden of compounding debt would otherwise collapse a society.)  When dishonest money fails, the aftermath is never pretty, and generally it includes war.  But when the biggest and most corrupt debt bubble in human history explodes, worldwide, the only way to describe the carnage will be “of Biblical proportions.”

The time to prepare, and to “come out“, so as to NOT participate in the sin, nor partake of the plagues now so clearly on the horizon, is NOW.


Evil upside-down, and Irony

Friday, April 5th, 2013

I was struck this morning by this article:

“Judge strikes down age restriction on morning-after pill”

and the irony that it represents.

Amerika [with a ‘k’] once had a Constitution and Bill of Rights which protected all people from prohibited actions by its legitimate government – from illegal searches, to property confiscation, to any restriction whatsoever on the Right to “keep and bear arms”.  All arms.

Now, travel can and is routinely prohibited unless victims “consent” to searches, groping, and theft of items which might offer protection from such abuse by other criminals.

An attempt to give a 16-yr-old a .22 rifle for a birthday gift can — and has — resulted in the arrest of fathers.

And while I am no fan of unconstitutional ‘laws’ prohibiting the so-called ‘possession’ of ANYTHING (find THAT in Article 1 as a power delegated to the central government!) I do find the irony in the decision today “ironic”, to say the least.

 

A 16-yr-old girl can no longer buy a rifle, even though the Second Amendment once demanded that such a God-given Right “shall not be infringed”.  No matter HOW old she is, if Big Brother prevails against the last shreds of the Constitution, she will not be able to BUY such a tool without permission, without Big Brother’s “universal background check'” and the “Mark” it so clearly represents.  In many places she cannot possess any such tool.

So – we have the following:

In places like Chicago, or NYC, or Washington, D.C, or Connecticut, that 16-yr-old girl cannot so much as THREATEN a rapist with a gun.  But she can kill the baby.

 

 

 

Senate plans Mark of the Beast

Friday, March 8th, 2013

There has been much “gnashing of teeth” and wringing of hands lately about the “Right of the people to keep and bear arms.”

 

Of course, when that Law was written into the Bill of Rights as a condition for ratification of the Constitution, those who did so unanimously recognized that all such “Rights” come from our Creator.  Now that “democracy” [sic – it is correctly spelt “demon-ocracy,” I contend]  has replaced the form of government once guaranteed by that document to these united States, and YHVH, the God of the Bible, is no longer even PERMITTED in the White House, Congress, courts, or Skools (aka “Publik Indoktrinashun Centurs”) of the land, it should come as no surprise that the ‘voice of the peepul’ is NOW the ‘voice of god’.

At least, those small-g ‘gods’ who have replaced Him.

Everyone with even a rudimentary grasp of history knows that slaves are NEVER permitted by their masters to ‘keep and bear arms’.  So what is the problem?  And what isn’t pretty well already clear?

But maybe there’s more TO this one:

It turns out that a lot of Xtians, and an increasing number of people who are “coming out of” a ‘Church’ that has been teaching His Written Law has been “done away with”, “nailed to the cross”, and just simply doesn’t apply in Modern Babylon — are starting to realize that something is horribly wrong.  We have indeed, as the prophet Jeremiah (16:19)  said, “inherited lies from our fathers.

If the Elohim of Scripture, Who says He “changes not” (Mal. 3:6) and is the same “yesterday, today, and tomorrow” cannot truly be trusted to keep His Word, and if His Commandments don’t apply any more — in spite of His instruction to the contrary — then why in Hell would we think man’s pitiful ‘constitutions’, and ‘laws’ made in accordance with it could possibly fare any better?  Like those who the Messiah rightfully called “hypocrites”, those who rewrite His statutes, judgments, and commandments, too, are “without excuse.”

There really wasn’t much left of the Bill of Rights in Amerika any more anyway…

 

But there IS something in this ‘debate’ about over-turning the last vestiges of a free people that should “raise the hair on the back of our necks”.  Think of it as a “sign of the times”, and a great indicator of “where we are” in the Last Days ‘timeline’.

Revelation 13:16-17  says that he, “causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads,  and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark — the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”

Have you followed all the debate about “Universal Background Checks”?

It seems that much of Washington, DC, is absolutely determined to get them in place for the peons.

It’s “very reasonable”, say the talking heads, the sycophants, and the poorly-disguised “Servants of Another Master”, to require the slaves to pass a “background check” before they are ALLOWED to purchase, or “transfer,” a firearm.  Furthermore, the concept that was once called “private property” has now been reduced to a “loophole”.   Recall that “licensed” gun “dealers” have already agreed, by virtue of that license itself, to abide by whatever rules their “master” (the One Who Gave Them the permission to do that!) — that they will abide, without question, by WHATEVER rules their Master dictates.  Both now and in the future, whenever the One Who Gives Permission might decide to change “His” rules!

The problem is, there are SOME who serve a DIFFERENT master, and still think they have the Right, from the Creator of the Universe, to “own property”.  They may not have agreed to the terms of the new “master’s” license.  They still believe (and I hope you’re sitting down) that something they bought, perhaps decades ago, or that was given to them by their grandaddy, is actually “THEIRS”, to use, or give away, or even dispose of, as they see fit!

They may even still think they have  “Rights” from their Creator.  Rights that this OTHER master, aka “Big Brother Himself” no longer tolerates in his world.

Now, a “bipartisan” group of Senators (and that’s the most dangerous kind) wants to “close the gun show” — and “private sale” — loophole, and mandate that ALL firearms transfers must require a “Universal Background Check” before they are allowed to happen.

So – for a second, at least – just forget all the legal jargon.  (They’re already telling you that simply FORBIDDING you from possessing SOMETHING doesn’t really constitute “infringement” anyway, so why would you believe anything else they claim?  …Unless, of course, you’ve been properly Indoctrinated!)

IFF (that’s Engineering Geek shorthand for “IF, and ONLY IF”)  there is such a thing as a “Force for Evil” in the world…whether It is called “Avarice”, the “Lust for Power and Control”, Global Socialism, the “New World Order”, or even Satan…

and IFF — knowingly or just in self-serving ignorance — that Entity is putting together a System of complete control of its Beastly World, perhaps under the guise of regulating all “commerce”…

and IFF that turns out to be EXACTLY what YHVH, the Creator of the Universe, warned us about millenia ago through “His servants the prophets”…

then just how would you expect some parts of that Plan to be put in place?

 

Consider this:

 

If they can require PERMISSION to “buy or sell” the single category of property that is SPECIFICALLY and unequivocally enumerated in the Bill of Rights that “shall not be infringed” —

is there ANYTHING that such a slave CANNOT be prohibited from “buying or selling” without some kind of “Mark” – denoting permission from that Beast system?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bo!

Monday, January 21st, 2013

I have perhaps been remiss at posting links to the many audio teachings, news shows, and podcasts that I do each week, largely because I tend to assume that by now most regular listeners and readers will be familiar with where they can be found and downloaded.

(The ‘Audio:  Radio Shows’ page link at the upper right corner of the webpage gives those details.)

The most recent Torah portion (or “parsha”) for this week should be of special interest, however.  Both Jeff Gilbert and I consider “Bo”  (from Exodus chapters 10 through 13) to be one of the most critical in Scripture to understanding the rest.  And in this week’s recording, we both focused on very different, but very much related, aspects of the lesson Scripture has for us — not only in terms of what lies “way ahead”, but what is unfolding now.

Take a listen here:

Monday, August 15th, 2011

Looking at the news, I contend that it is hard to deny what is happening.   “Lawlessness” (or “torah-less-ness”) abounds, and the demise of the unconstitutional, full-fiat, dishonest weight/measure that the Bible repeatedly calls “abomination” obviously draws closer by the day.

The Curse of “Lawlessness”

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

The events of the past few weeks have left an objective observer little choice but to conclude that much of the world is heading into what can reasonably be called “lawlessness”… from wars in northern Africa and the Mideast, to riots in Greece.   But it is in the United States where that word may be most appropriate, as so many recent court decisions and acts of Congress have literally turned centuries-old principles of law on their heads.

In Indiana, that state’s Supreme Court recently even made the astounding claim that the hapless residents there are not allowed to resist their police-state masters EVEN when armed men* enter their homes in COMPLETE violation of the law!  Thus, in one evil blow, the ‘court’ overturned not only the few remaining shreds of the 4th Amendment from the Bill of Rights, but even the eight century-old principles of the Magna Carta as well…that a “man’s home is his castle”.  In Texas, the state House overwhelmingly passed a bill to protect the citizens there from abuse by the TSA, saying that those who commit sexual assault, even in airports, by groping passengers in a form offensive to “reasonable” people, would actually be held accountable for the crime.  Before that bill could even pass the Senate, however, the Feds and TSA — like the legendary Godfather played by Marlon Brando —  “made them an offer they couldn’t refuse”.  They literally threatened to shut down all air traffic into the entire state if they failed to submit to their federal masters.  Texas caved.  And – although it really was no surprise – the US Congress again “renewed” the hideously-misnamed “Patriot” Act, confirming that  “we don’t need no steenkin’ warrants”, either.

Very little of what was once the “Bill of Rights” survives today.  And people who once believed in a “rule of law” wonder what happened.  In hindsight, however, the Truth is as simple as “we reap what we sow”.  In previous months, we have explored some of the ways in which dishonest money, or “unjust weights and measures”, lead inevitably to inflation and moral decay.  Both the Bible, and the Constitution, forbid the type of fiat paper dollars that masquerade as “money” today.  But there is another issue.

For well over 1700 years, the world has been misled by a ‘church’ which teaches that the “law has been done away with”.  Popes, priests, and pastors claim the authority to replace the commandments of YHVH with their own “traditions”, which the Pharisees before them were rightfully called “hypocrites” for doing.   In particular, the Torah, or “teaching and instruction” of God, as given to Moses, is often purported to be part of another “dispensation”, even though YHVH Himself said He does not change, and that His instruction would NOT change either, until “heaven and earth pass” (Matthew 5:17-19) .  Men have “changed times and seasons”, and declared that His Sabbaths, which He said we were to keep “forever” — no longer apply.  Commandments for everything from what constitutes marriage, to what constitutes food, have been treated the same way.  Now, all around the world, Caesar’s churches continue to peddle that self-serving lie.  Even dictators have learned to take advantage of a compliant state-licensed clergy, by twisting the language of Romans 13 to claim that while God no longer cares that His Law be obeyed, it is what the Almighty State decrees that really matters.

Consider, finally, some other recent developments.  The city of San Francisco just gave final approval to a ballot issue which proposes to outlaw circumcision of males under the age of eighteen, with no “religious exemption” for trivialities like Scripture.   And, for the first time ever, a Gallup poll claims that a majority of Amerikans now support “gay marriage” — again, in direct opposition to the Bible.  Is it any surprise that a people who believe such Big Lies are able to accept something declared “legal” which YHVH calls “abomination” …and vice-versa?

The cycle is complete:  The Constitution is now no more the “Supreme Law of the Land” than the Bible.  A people which have come to believe that the Written Law of YHVH the Almighty Himself can be “done away with” will eventually, and inevitably, conclude that the Constitutions of men are just as ephemeral, just as trivial.  There is no question that “many have been deceived” by false teachers and prophets.

And our Savior said, “because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.” (Matthew 24:12)

How can one “love your neighbor” while ignoring the way our Father says we are treat him, in accord with His “torah”?  It is more than ironic that the same “church” which teaches lawlessness — that the “law has been done away with”, been “nailed to the cross”, or just “no longer matters” in “this dispensation” — is in large part responsible for fulfilling His prophecy of the sorrows to come.

“Lawlessness” — like the inflation and collapse which follows dishonest money — is a cancer.  It rots the very foundation of societies.  The admonition of Revelation 18:4, to “come out of her, My people“, and separate ourselves from the plagues which follow, is important, and bears repeating.  But there is an even stronger warning to those who “lead His sheep astray”, “fail to teach the difference between the set-apart (qadosh, or “holy”) and the profane”, and practice (much less teach!) “torah-less-ness”.  It is in Matthew 7:22-23:

“Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your Name?
And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ “

There is a reason why He Wrote it down for us.

——————————–
*  Note that I did not use the term ‘police’, much less “peace officer”, because there was a time not that long ago when a sworn official acting “under color of law” — violating their oath of office — was held to be acting criminally.  No longer.   And how does someone whose door is broken down by a “cop” know whether the thug acting against him and his family unlawfully is a “real” criminal, or just an impostor in a uniform?
