“All who are under the yoke of slavery should consider their masters worthy of full respect, so that God’s name and our teaching may not be slandered. Those who have believing masters should not show them disrespect just because they are fellow believers. Instead, they should serve them even better because their masters are dear to them as fellow believers and are devoted to the welfare of their slaves.
These are the things you are to teach and insist on. If anyone teaches otherwise and does not agree to the sound instruction of our Lord Jesus Christ and to godly teaching, they are conceited and understand nothing. They have an unhealthy interested in controversies and quarrels about words that result in envy, strife, malicious talk, evil suspicions and constant friction between people of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain.
But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.
But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses. In the sight of God, who gives life to everything, and of Christ Jesus, who while testifying before Pontius Pilate made the good confession, I charge you to keep this command without spot or blame until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, which God will bring about in his own time – God, the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see. To him be honor and might forever. Amen.
Command those who are rich in his present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.
Timothy, guard what has been entrusted in your care. Turn away from godless chatter and the opposing ideas of what is falsely called knowledge, which some have professed and in so doing have departed from the faith. Grace be with you all.” (1 Timothy 6: 1-21)
Its easy to understand that money is the root of all evil, but it is very difficult within modern society to remove the desire for wealth from the moral fabric of our being. Our capitalistic society has groomed the masses to desire wealth and prosperity and to pursue this desire with every ounce of their being. We are instructed to justify our immoral actions on behalf of business and that there is a moral separation from one’s actions at work vs their personal life. Its easy to understand why this aspect of society has grown and developed into the monstrosity that we have today and how we are so inundated with its message. This is what we have been taught since birth and has become the driving force in our lives, until death do us part.
This ultimate conquest of the financial pyramid has led our successful to become disconnected from the world of the unsuccessful. The modern teaching is that the best and the brightest among society rise to the top of the economic ladder while the lazy and uneducated progress toward the bottom of the spectrum. Continuing with this belief over generations has led to a population so disconnected from reality that they have lost all ability to understand the trials of the average man. These individuals have never had to long for anything except their next financial conquest or vacation destination.
The grand belief is that once a certain portion of population reaches this status, they would have the moral fortitude to use the Biblical principals and share the wealth they have accumulated. This was the ultimate belief behind the Trickle-Down Economic Theory presented and placing into practice by President Ronald Reagan. The belief was that the money should be given to the best and brightest of us so that they could produce businesses, creating jobs, ultimately sharing the wealth they have been given. Fast forward 30 years and we find that this trickle down never happened. The money stayed at the top and very little was given to the populous.
Many will debate this fact to only justify their economic and political prosperity but when looking at the fruits, we know that this economic theory only enriched a small population. Just understanding this one moral fact, that there should be nothing such as a billionaire when there is an increasing homeless population, is enough to demonstrate that the trickling down of the money never happened. There is enough to go around, if only the ruling parties would allow it to happen.
What made America so great was the creation of the Middle Class and its ability to increase the velocity of money. The concept of having a Middle Class was something new to the world stage as all throughout history there were only the rich and the poor. The Middle Class allowed more individuals to be allowed access to money and to the ability to purchase goods and services. This would cause the circulation of the currency to move fast between sharing partners, thus increasing the velocity of money. As the velocity increased, more people were allowed the ability to increase their quality of life, bringing the United States into the First World and allowing our economy to be a beacon of hope to the world.
Then why have recent studies demonstrated that the Millennial Generation is the first generation in the history of this great country to have a decrease in their quality of living? We are told that this is due to this generation being lazy and unwilling to work for their prosperity. We are told that every economic opportunity is still present, but this generation refuses to take advantage. We are told that receiving a degree is still the path to financial success, despite the overwhelming cost to achieve this goal. We are told……
When will we wake up and see that the system has become broken and the velocity of money has decreased substantially? It would make logical sense to know that something has drastically changed but instead we are being told that we live in the greatest economy the world has ever seen, with the lowest unemployment rate ever, combined with record setting stock markets. How can this be true when so many are suffering, and the income inequality of this nation is at an all-time high?
This is where we can no longer just listen to what we are being told. We can see that the information being given does not match the world around us. We must then understand that the information being provided is false and what we are seeing, and witnessing is the truth.
When looking into the record setting low unemployment, we must also investigate the way this under is calculated. The basic understanding is that those that receive unemployment benefits are calculated into this number and those that do not receive benefits are not calculated. The grey area comes when one understands that the benefit does not last as long as someone is unemployed. The benefit lasts for only a specific amount of time and once that benefit has been exhausted, then that individual is no longer calculated within that number. There is also this minor technicality that business can dispute unemployment claims against fired workers, causing the worker to not receive any benefits, thus not showing us as a statistic. This trend is on the rise.
Another factor is that if someone is underemployed, they no longer show up on this statistic. For example, is someone was making $50,000 per year, lost their job and took a job making less, they are considering underemployed. This tread has increased as corporations do not want to hire employees at a higher rate when they can hire them at a lower rate. Plus, many of these individuals have taken on a second or third job to make up the missing revenue. This then causes that same individual to be counted two or three times toward the job creation rate, thus increasing the amount of jobs created. This manipulation of the numbers helps the reporting agencies and the government while hurting the quality of life for so many, creating a hypocrisy within the numbers our leaders govern us by. We also know the number of workers left out of the job market is increasing due to the substantial rise of the homeless population. These numbers have an inverse relationship with each other.
Taking this number manipulation into consideration, it would be intuitive to look at the amount of jobs available within the economy. If there were jobs available, then there should be massive hiring. The problem is with understanding that corporations are paid by the government for the amount of job openings they have listed. This payment system has created a corporate society to list jobs as available, understanding that no or little hiring will be taking place, so that they receive this payment from the government. This logic makes the use of the jobs available number obsolete as the data is skewed.
Many within the privileged class will then look at the increasing stock market and the increase in corporate revenue to illustrate their belief that the economy is the best ever. Its easy for a financial analyst to show that corporate profits are increasing but they refuse to show the geopolitical reasons as to why this increase occurred. They only want you to give them money to invest in the market, so that they can increase their bonus and pay structure. Why would telling the truth even cross their mind, when they know that everything is an illusion?
The resent increase in corporate revenue has come from two different places. First the recent Trump Tax Plan has allowed trillions of dollars “trapped” overseas to come into the American market and second is extensive cost saving measures have taken place. We understand the extensive cost saving measure as the number of stores being closed and the lack of increasing wages to the workers.
The corporate tax plan passed by President Trump was sold to the American public as a way to increase corporate investment into the American economy, thus increasing job growth and salaries. Instead, the trillions of dollars that corporations have overseas allowed these same corporations to purchase their own stock from the open market. This increased purchasing power allowed corporation to manipulate their individual stock price by increasing demand and limiting the amount of supply. We can see the amount of corporate stock buybacks have hit record levels, thus increasing the stock markets to the levels they have become today. These increasing prices enticed the common investor to feel like they are being left out and to leverage their investment further into the market, increasing the price further. This is called Euphoria and is the last phase of the death cycle of a currency. We can see this “pass the buck” gamble is being completed by the record level of executive stock sales that has happened in 2019. Those that created the bubble are selling high, while their fellow investors will be left holding the losses when everything comes down.
Many will still dispute this as not the only reason corporate profits have increased. Many corporations are reporting that their revenues are hitting record levels and that is proof the economy is the best ever. Then under the same breath, the analysis will claim that they don’t understand the weird anomaly of the decreasing unit sales associated to this increase in profits. The only possible way that this correlation can be correct is if the unit price is increasing. Then the profit would continue to be increasing when unit sales are decreasing. This is the definition of inflation, when the cost of goods increases. This means the Fed reported inflation numbers are incorrect as you cannot have an increase in price of goods, on this scale, without inflation increasing.
For our corporate overlords, they only manage based off numbers and the majority will not look deep into the numbers as all they care about is if their bonus and commissions are increasing. This funneling of money to the top echelon of society is causing the decrease in the velocity of money. It’s no secret that the poor and Middle Class spend their money faster than the rich. The rich tend to sit on their nest egg and make money with their money, not purchasing goods that drive our economy. This is causing a massive disconnect between the engine or our economy and those who hold all the assets. This disconnect is becoming more laughable considering the recent departure of the CEO of McDonalds. Only is a world of make belief can any corporation justify the firing of an employee, for unethical practices and abuses of power, and still pay him 6 months salary. The average worker would get nothing, and the corporation would also fight to deny payment of their unemployment benefits!
This hypocrisy is also present within our political system. We all know that those with money make the rules and then benefit from the rules they have put in place. This is no different then those who are allowed to partake in our political system. The reason its stated as “allowed” is through economic control, many are unable to influence government due to the rules set in place.
To best illustrate this understanding, we will take the state of Colorado as an example. A State Senator in Colorado is paid a salary of $30,000 per year. Take in consideration the recent study published stating that for an individual to purchase an average house in Colorado, one must make $100,000. These numbers don’t match. This means that for someone to run for State Senate in Colorado, one must either be independently wealthy, retired with a nest egg, or be homeless. The obligation of the job would make it very difficult for anyone to keep a full-time job, making $70,000 a year, plus fulfill their duties as a State Senator. Even if one was able to fulfill these financial obligations, one would then be subject to the rulers at their corporation or small business, and their boss’s personal beliefs toward having a political candidate on the payroll. A corporation or small business would only allow this gamble if they were guaranteed to have a winning candidate and considering the enormous financial obligations needed for political office and its association to fundraising, guaranteeing a win is not possible.
Also understanding that no one is going to back or fund a homeless candidate, we are left between the choice of a wealthy individual or a retired wealthy individual. Either way the power stays with those who are already prospering from the system that they have created.
This is the system they have created for us. Both sides are guilty of this and they have used their power and influence to retain control over this system and will do anything to make sure they never lose this power.
There is no deep state that is working behind the scenes trying to influence the world. Those doing the manipulation are in plain sight and have no reason to hide what they have been doing. This has worked for them and their families for generations and they believe they are smarter then all of us. They hold all the power and influence and anyone who tries to challenge this system will be destroyed economically or politically.
We know Biblically this would be the system put in place to control the masses and to bring us to the New World Order. We are in the final stages and can see what the endgame will be. They will continue bleeding the middle class by increasing costs of goods and limiting its political influence, while decreasing its revenue stream. This will make the masses easier to control and manipulate as when people are in survival mode, they will be unable to think of ways to change the system.
As more people get pushed down into lower economic status and require government assistance, this aid will then be cut. We already see this within the debate behind removing food stamps, social security, welfare, etc. Once the cord is cut, those stuck within this portion of society will have no choice but to go along with whatever work for food program the government dishes out (also being debated). When this happens, we will have the fulfillment of the Third Seal of Revelation!
The only thing that the ruling class can be worried about is the loss of peace from the earth and the uprising of the masses. When this accelerates, they know their time is short and the program must be complete for them to retain power. If they don’t succeed in retaining their power, they will be no better then the rest of us when destruction comes!
“I watched as the Lamb opened the first of the seven seals. Then I heard one of the four living creatures say in a voice like thunder, ‘Come!’ I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest.
Then the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, ‘Come!’ Then another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make people kill each other. To him was given a large sword.
When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, ‘Come!’ I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand. Then I heard what sounds like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, ‘Two pounds of wheat for a day’s wage, and six pounds of barley for a day’s wage, and do not damage the oil and the wine!
When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, ‘Come!” I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.
When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God and the testimony they had maintained. They called out in a loud voice, ‘How long, Sovereign Lord, holy and true, until you judge the inhabitants of the earth and avenge our blood?’ Then each of them was given a robe, and they were told to wait a little longer, until the full number of their fellow servants, their brothers and sisters, were killed just as they had been.
I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. The heavens receded like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.
Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and everyone else, both slave and free, hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains. They called to the mountains and the rocks, ‘Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can withstand it?” (Revelation 6: 1-17)
