The Holy Bible provides us with a record of our governmental, religious, and spiritual history. God’s word is the same yesterday, today, and forever. So we can see where we are headed by where we have been.
Let’s start with our governmental history, going back to the point at which we departed from God’s word, which is revealed to us through the children of Israel (called the chosen people because they were chosen out of all the nations of the world to represent us, the people). They are being led by Samuel meaning heard of God, who had a direct communication with God. But the children of Israel wanted to be like the other nations, choosing to have a king rule over them instead of God’s word, which spoke through the mouth of Samuel, who describes the burdensome manner in which this king would rule. But they demanded it. So they were given Saul, which means to demand. How Saul rules the people (1 Samuel 8:6-20) shows us not only how religion rules its people, but how the government (under socialism) will rule its people, the two being of one, symbolized by the iron mixed with the clay in the book of Daniel.
Religion requires the people to pay 10% of their income to the Church.
Government will require the people to pay 70% or greater under Socialism.
What is giving power to these self-serving entities is laziness and greed. The people of religion are too lazy to judge themselves, through which they would obtain spiritual freedom, while the proponents of socialism want something for free, which they do not deserve as they have not worked for it, the definition of greed— a rapacious desire for more than one needs or deserves. Rapacious: taking things by force; plundering (looting).
God’s Word teaches us that we are to enjoy the fruits of our own labor, not someone else’s labor. Socialism stands directly opposed to God’s Word. So does the Christian religion, which teaches that someone else (Jesus) carries the burden of our labor.
“And as for the prophet, and the priest, and the people, that shall say, The burden of the Lord, I will even punish that man and his house.” ~ Jeremiah
It is not only man’s greed and laziness that is giving power to Socialism. It is the demand for equality: the state or quality of being equal. But in the end (as the history of Socialism teaches us) the people are not made equally rich, but equally poor. Only the institutions (political and religious) and those that run them are made rich.
Fast forward a thousand years from the time of Saul, where once again the descendants of the children of Israel (Jews) reject the word of God spoken through Jesus. Christians (Gentiles) followed suit, rejecting the teachings of Jesus, buying into the teachings of yet another Saul (Paul), whose doctrine of lies has created spiritual laziness and greed in the so-called believer. The name might have changed, but the spirit has not. It’s the same damned spirit we see at work today in those that are physically lazy and greedy.
The kingdom was rent from Saul and given unto David. Two very different kings. Two very different spirits. Two very different teachings. Paul taught that salvation is a gift, not something you have to work for. Jesus taught that salvation is received through works by way of the gift; by the spiritual power through which the spiritual works are accomplished. We all have the ability and right to use this spiritual power, which is the most important equality of all— spiritual equality. This spiritual power is the spiritual ointment that David spoke of, which will bring unity among the brethren (Psalms 133). Socialism does just the opposite, creating division among the brethren in order to obtain its objective, which is total control over the people. Divide and Conquer. Socialism is luring the people in by offering them salvation without them having to work for it, which is directly opposed to the Word of God.
The word salvation means help. The word saved means deliver, protect, heal, save (self), be (make) whole. We are to save ourselves, not look to someone else to save us, which will only end up enslaving us. Salvation requires works on the part of the one obtaining it. America must now do what it takes to save itself from Socialism, which is using Race to divide us, and Reparations to ensure its success. Reparations is compensation in money or materials given to one nation for damages caused by another nation through its hostilities, which (in this case) is SLAVERY, an outward expression of an inward condition, illustrated for us in the Old Testament (some 3500 years ago) when the fair-skinned children of Israel were enslaved by the dark-skinned Egyptians for 390 years, nearly the same amount of time blacks were enslaved by the whites in America. Reparations appeal to the GREED in the heart of man. The Spirit of God (through the mouth of the Red Man) tells us it is the sickness of man’s heart, and is responsible for the imbalance in the earth. An evil (negative and destructive energy) that is manifesting itself in the form of bigger and more powerful storms and earthquakes. The Word of God tells us that GREED is the root of all evil— “the love of money is the root of all evil.” As the root gives life to the plant, greed gives life to the evil. Jesus said, ” Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.” Socialism, the ideals of which stand in opposition to God’s Word, the principles of which America was founded upon, is a plant we must pluck out! Socialism is the scourge of America; a whip used to inflict punishment, under which we will all be treated as SLAVES.
” The word sceptre means a scion, i.e. (lit.) a stick for punishing. As long as we remain under the spirit of Judah we remain under its punishment, which is manifesting itself in the form of terrorism and oppression. The feet symbolize the age of Pisces, synonymous with the era of Isaac, and with the reign of Judah. We have left this era chronologically, but we will remain under its tyranny until we drive the impurities out of our heart, through which we bring in Shiloh, meaning to be tranquil, secure, successful, be happy, prosper, be in safety. Those that reach this state will have entered the ark of the covenant, the ark of safety, abiding in God’s protection, safe from the flood of evilness that is quickly rising upon the earth— and upon the heart.” -THE BIBLE DECODED
