Time Draws Short

Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

Scripture tells us that fiat money, not to be confused with silver, or in fact an honest weight of ANYTHING, is an abomination. Deuteronomy 25:16 seems to suggest pretty strongly (by saying “ALL who do such things are an abomination”, too) that we should avoid most of the world’s dishonest currencies. And that, obviously, is far from easy. Surely our Creator did not mean THAT. Given just how pervasive the crooked “money” that is apparently our “only option” for dealing with buying or selling in ‘the world’ has become – what other choice do we have?

 

But perhaps that is just a trick question. Consider how pervasive the internet has become, and how national ID cards, credit ratings, biometrics, and pervasive spying have made what was once called “privacy” – economic or otherwise – pretty much a joke, just like national constitutions and national leaders who think the law applies to them. India is already in the process of instituting a national “mark”; think of it as a “Beta test” for the rest of the world in fairly short order. How long will it be now until no one will be allowed to “buy or sell” without another kind of “mark” – even if they don’t come right out and call it “the Beast”? (Although, given how “in your face” the pervasive hatred of the Bible has become, perhaps that would be no surprise.)

 

And given that it will – just as surely as fiat money today – be the “only option” for buying, selling, and feeding our families – what other choice do we have?

 

But that may ultimately be one of the easier choices to face. Ebola is rapidly emerging as the “be afraid, be very afraid” pandemic that has, and may very well continue, to usher in martial law all over the world, even if the propagandists in many of them will come up with more politically-correct terminology. Perhaps something like “The Police State Loves you, and wants to protect children and puppies. So we’ll shoot on sight and take your last Right.”

 

And let’s not forget World War III. You knew that nothing as trivial as a Constitution, or Congress, or international law, was going to stop the Empire from bombing Syria, didn’t you? And if you’re confused about who “ISIS,” or is it ISIL now? – or Al-CIA-da, or the Muslim Brotherhood is, and whether they’re this week’s allies or last week’s terrorists – don’t worry; that’s by design.

 

History shows that massive currency failures, hyperinflation, depressions, and stock or bond market crashes are generally closely tied to war. After all, the prophet Jeremiah was correct, and the human heart is “desperately wicked..” But the current world debt load is already of “Biblical proportions.” No doubt the aftermath will be as well. And it certainly appears that all of the above crises are approaching their climax in the form of a “perfect storm.” Almost like what Scripture has been warning about will once again turn out to be “right on the money.” Except that the money isn’t right, so the curses too appear to be of Biblical proportions.

 

All of this might sound somewhat negative if we didn’t realize that the REAL God of the Universe (as opposed to those who merely play him on TV) keeps His promises. Without fail. And that even includes chastening those He loves, as a father chastens his son. Sometimes that “tough love” is a real whopper.

 

It would appear that Time Draws Short. Perhaps it is an incredible blessing that His Fall Feasts are almost upon us. There has never been a better time for repentance, and for remembering what is truly important.

 

We can learn to “come out of her.” We can learn – even if it’s hard – to separate ourselves from dishonest money systems, and begin to deal with one another faithfully. And if that system is about to collapse, then it’s about time.

 

We can learn to eat what He says is food, and avoid what is not. Because it brings plagues. And since we are “fearfully and wonderfully made” – with an immune system to fight off not only the “diseases of Egypt” but even those man-made bioweapons that He warned about so clearly in Deuteronomy 28:61 – perhaps we can even choose to trust in Him for our health rather than awaiting the next Miracle from the Elohim of Pharmakeia.

 

We’re eventually gonna have to decide whether we trust in YHVH – REALLY trust in YHVH – or in the ‘gods’ of this world. Those choices will not get any easier.

 

Time draws short.

Is it a “Conspiracy Theory” to openly admit the Undeniable?

Wednesday, July 17th, 2013

Each and every week, the news simply seems to become more bizarre.  Scandal follows scandal among the so-called “leaders” in governments around the world, and increasingly their immorality is exceeded only by their perfidy.  While the words of the prophet Yermeyahu (Jeremiah 17:9) have always been true, they are becoming so blatant as to have evidently replaced the oath of office for most politicians:
“The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it?

But that level of evil is predictable (and indeed, HAS been predicted throughout Scripture).  What is happening as governments around the world seek to consolidate power and control, and move so directly toward implementing the technology, infrastructure, and regulations to impose the “Mark of the Beast”, should not surprise those with “eyes to see” at all.  No, it is OTHER things in the news of late that might be harder to swallow — literally.

It’s not enough that over 90% of all corn, soybeans, and canola grown in the USA is genetically modified.  But now the USDA has admitted that genetically-modified Franken-WHEAT has been discovered infecting farms in Oregon, having evidently been spread from open field-testing by Monsanto as far back as 1998 to 2005.  The self-replicating pollution has already spread, and may already have infected wheat in the 15 other states where such “testing” was permitted.  Other nations are rightly concerned:  Japan has already cancelled wheat deliveries.

Other foods, too, have been contaminated.  While the danger of neurotoxic additives like Aspartame (aka NutraSweet, the ingredient in so-called “diet” soft drinks, among many things) is well-documented, and the identified health hazards associated with many other “pre-packaged foods” seem to grow almost daily, it’s BEES which have been an even bigger concern lately.  “Colony Collapse Disorder” now kills over 30% of farm bee hive stocks every year, and recent reports from Russia even warn that US failure to address the “bee apocalypse” could “most certainly” lead to world war.  And again, it is neuro-active insecticides and genetically-modifed crops which take center stage among likely culprits.

Indeed, the adulteration of what is almost laughably now called “food” has become so great, and the manipulation of public opinion and “law” so blatant, that it is hard NOT to accept the premise that some people in positions of power and control are so bent on “population control” that they are willing to poison vast multitudes in order to achieve that goal.  A review of medical literature showing grotesquely tumor-ridden lab rats, diseased internal organs in farm animals, and symptoms in the GMO-consuming public should be enough to convince Bible-literate observers that the “plagues” warned about in Revelation 18:4 are on the horizon.  (Nor, of course,  should Torah-observant believers ignore the plague of the coming currency meltdown associated with the plague of dishonest weights and measures!)

And it should even be clear that all of the seven things YHVH says He hates are fixtures in governments around the world today:

These six [things] the LORD hates, Yes, seven [are] an abomination to Him:
A proud look, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood,
A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that are swift in running to evil,
A false witness [who] speaks lies, And one who sows discord among brethren.                
Proverbs 6:16-19

But it is the utter irony of the current world situation which should not be overlooked.  YHVH not only keeps His promises, fulfills His plan, and exacts His justice — but clearly has a sense of humor as well.

Consider the story of the Exodus again.  Even after seeing His miracles, and being delivered from bondage by His mighty hand, the people of Israel managed to continue to whine and complain.  Rather than accept His Word, and walk in faith into the Promised Land flowing with “milk and honey”, they repeatedly sought to return to Egypt and slavery.

And what do we see today?  The princes of THIS world — who increasingly will not allow YHVH, the Creator of the Universe, into THEIR schools, or courts, or seats of power — promise their own “blessings” for those who accept their authority, and ignore His Law.  They literally, on so many fronts, call evil, “good”, and good, “evil”.

Home gardening, and small farms, are being outlawed, or priced out of business, by government bureaucracies.  Private people who trade with one another for raw milk and dairy products have been raided at gunpoint, arrested, and their products and properties siezed.  And now that bees are evidently being destroyed by manufactured toxins, it can even be said that honey, too, is at risk.  The circle is complete.

Rather than being led by God in TO a land flowing with milk and honey, the modern slaves of Caesar are being led BACK into bondage in a land where milk and honey have been replaced by man-made poisons!

The choice has never been so clear:

“Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. 
For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.”                                

— Revelation 18:4-5

And the reasons for obedience to Him, and the consequences of rebellion, have never been so undeniable.
