1) … Judgement is the means by which God is now calling people to himself in a world where democratic government, the rule of law, and a sound economy is failing.
It was God’s desire that people live in the Garden of Eden and enjoy fellowship with him. But through sin, that is doubt, the first progeny failed, and the Garden of Eden was lost, but it’s experience is being recovered by Christ. Witness Lee wrote the book Ten Lines in the Bible which explains this very well.
God’s love for the individual, is the basis for faith in Him, which one supplements with virtue (arete, which is Greek word #703), and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love, 2 Peter 1:5-8. Self control is largely a matter of a decision for chase (hagnos) communication, speech, and action. Hagnos is Greek word #53 and is found in Phil 4:8, (whatever is pure), 1 Tim 5:22, (chaste from sin, that is doubt), 1 Peter 3:2, (pure conversation), and 1 John 3:3, (clarity, like water or light). This that one might have maturing life in Christ and be ever more pleasing to Him and finding genuine freedom therein, as put forth in John 1:12, “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.”
Shlomo Sand wrote The Invention of the Jewish People, communicate that there is no archaeological record of the Jewish people in Palestine at the time the Bible alleges that they were there. I do not dispute with him, I simply believe the Bible on faith, without any corroborating physical evidence, as I must believe that God is, and is a rewarder of those who earnestly seek him.
The Revelation of Jesus Christ, is a book which communicates God’s Judgment. In the first three chapters, Christ judges the churches, which has been ongoing since the first century. God’s Judgement of the world commenced with fears of sovereign failure, specifically fears of a European Sovereign Debt Crisis, which turned the Euro, FXE, lower on December 5, 2011, as the S&P placed its long-term sovereign ratings on 15 members of the eurozone on “CreditWatch” with negative implications. Specifically in Revelation 6:1-2, “Christ opened the first of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures saying with a voice like thunder, “Come and see.” And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.”
The Judgement of Christ, commenced with a Eurozone coup d etat. And this started the Beast Regime of Neoauthoritarianism to rise to from the profligate Mediterranean Sea countries of Greece and Italy, to replace the Banker Regime of Neoliberalism, Revelation 13:1-4, which is the same as the ten toed kingdom of regional global governance, Daniel 2:31-33.
This Minotaur can never be defeated, as it comes by fateful action of the Sovereign Lord God, Psalm 2:4-5 and Revelation 2:26-27. It is coming like a terminator that can’t be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until mankind is totally dominated and subdued.
2) …Goldy character is formed in the forge of adversity; it comes from developing a good conscience. Godly character is the means of having life; some have no conscience and are comatose; these are zombies raised up by Lucifer to trouble the godly.
Chaste character, is foundational to godly character; chaste comes from the Greek word hagnos, meaning pure, specifically character pure from carnality of wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony, and comes from upholding virtue, which comes from the Greek word arete, meaning set of moral excellencies, which provides peace and strength in one’s mind.
Through character, one either gives way to violence or to peace.
Reuters reports Athens Mayhem Raises Fears Of Greek Social Explosion. I was saddened by European parliament member Nigel Farage blames the Troika for the violence and destruction in Greece stating, “Violence and destruction in Greece that you saw on Sunday is being caused directly because people have had their democratic rights taken from them. What else can they do? If I was a Greek citizen I would have been out there joining those protests. I would be out there trying to bring down this monstrosity that has been put upon those people,” … as I took his words to condone rebellion. I am for resistance and turning away, which is quite different from rebellion.
One’s character comes from one’s identity. If one has identity out of virtue, then one accepts adversity, poverty, dishonor, and disappointment, as one looks beyond the temporal to the eternal. It is out of the forge of adversity that one becomes a moral person.
A person of genuine and good faith will supply virtue to one’s soul and forsake carnality, withdrawing from every brother who walks disorderly and not according to the apostle’s tradition, 2 Thes 3:6.
As one lets concepts of grace and truth sink in to ones’ life attitudes, then a strong and good conscience develops and the moral person emerges and mortifies the carnal nature and one grows in emotional and spiritual strength and peace.
3) … Out of life, specifically the life of Christ, one comes to have both an identity and a right, and from that, genuine freedom, the freedom to mature as the child of God.
In Four Sources To Determine One’s Rights I wrote tyrannical rule is God’s forge and furnace, hammer and anvil where one’s right, the right to become the son of God, is learned, developed and exercised. John revealed the only right there is in 1 John 1:12. “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.”
Paul served as living example of the only right there is, stating in 2 Corinthians 4:7-10: “We have this treasure in earthen vessels that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. We are hard pressed on every side, yet not crushed, perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.not your own: for ye are bought with a price.” With the price being the blood of Jesus.
An inquiring mind asks, have Libertarians have usurped the principle of Liberty, from Christ, who said in John 8:32, You will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free and who said in John 8:36 If the Son sets you free, you are free indeed
It’s only through Christ that one has life and one has freedom. As the Apostle John said in John 6:63, It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. And As the Apostle Paul said in Romans 8:2, For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus made me free from the law of sin and of death.
Could it be that some Libertarians “peddle” Liberty for the sake of filthy lucre?
Robert Wenzel, writes in “Anomic Breakdown” and Beyond, “The bankster controlled elitist states around the world are collapsing. Greece is a preview. So what is happening in Greece? Social breakdown. Under the headline: Struggling Greeks Losing Belief In The State, Paul Mason at the BBC reports: During the autumn, Greek commentators began to speak of “anomic breakdown”, where people begin to disobey laws and social norms individually. There are all kinds of factions developing: hard-right, extreme left, anti-German, most appear unaware that central planning is itself the problem. Most just want their central planners in power. Governments around the world are all at varying stages of collapse. I fear what will replace them. Anomic breakdown, itself, sounds like something close to the spontaneous breakdown of current state tyranny. If it stopped there, new free markets would develop. However, many will seek to replace the power removed by anomic breakdown. The danger is in these replacements. The real problem is that the masses may not be able to tell the difference between freedom and chains, and thus simply choose new shiny chains”.
Ongoing political conflicts in Europe may mean that Angela Merkel and Nicolas Sarkozy will not be able to stay in office, but this does not mean the destruction of the Euro zone, as bible prophecy communicates that the Sovereign Lord God, Psalms 2:4-5, is effecting a global coup d etat, Revelation 6:1-2, through the destruction of fiat money.
The death of fiat money commenced in July 2011 with world currencies, DBV, and emerging market currencies, CEW, trading lower. This has caused the investment, economic and political tectonic plates to shift, with the result that a Euro zone authoritarian economic and political structure is rising, to govern those nations that use the Euro currency.
Greece has lost its monetary sovereignty, and Portugal, Italy and Spain have as well, this being acknowledged by ongoing sovereign debt ratings downgrades by rating agencies and increasing oversight by the EU ECB IMF Troika. Investment capital is being destroyed by debt deflation, that is currency deflation; and now, political capital is rising in its place.
The dynamo of choice provided by the Milton Friedman Free To Choose Script, that governed for the last forty years is history. Now, the dynamo of diktat, implied in the 1974 Clarion Call by the Club of Rome for regional global governance, is rising to govern human economic and political activities.
Fate is the order of the day, which through creative destruction is terminating Neoliberalism and producing Neoauthoritarianism. There is no human action, there is only destiny destroying choice and democracy, as neo liberal credit fails. Libertarianism will not see the light of day; there will not be any Freedom, Free Enterprise and a Free Monetary System, as envisioned by Hayek, Rothbard and Mises; such things are simply mirages on the Neoauthoritarian Desert of the Real.
Those who taken the Red Pill, know that the debt economy of capitalism is coming to an end, with the result that the dynamos of growth and profit are failing. The recent driver of investment reality has been the European Central Bank’s LTRO, facility which has provided cheap three-year liquidity to banks, which in turn has fueled fiat asset purchases across the board including Portugal, Italy and Spain Sovereign Debt. The effect of that last injection of neo liberal credit is likely to be fleeting as fears of debt contagion arise an competitive currency devaluation recommences and investors derisk out of stocks and bonds, and delever out of commodities.
In a decapitalized world, one is either going down the path of anomic breakdown, where people begin to disobey laws and social norms individually, or one is going down the path of life in Christ, hopefully ever maturing in the only right there is, and finding genuine freedom therein, as put forth in John 1:12, “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.”
Going down the path of anomic breakdown, will destroy one’s arete, that is one’s set of moral excellencies. A failure of faith and trust in the Lord in the coming economic and political collapse is a great threat to one’s arete and opens the door to searing one’s conscience, and becoming a psychopath or supporting those who are psychopaths. Wikipedia relates that Robert D. Hare’s Psychopathy Checklist, Revised (PCL-R) is the psycho diagnostic tool most commonly used to assess psychopathy. One is to mark and avoid those those who appear to be psychopaths as they cause divisions and offenses, contrary to sound doctrine, Romans 16:17-18.
4) … The negative reality of both capitalism’s debt trade and the tragic death of Greek Socialism comes to light in the Second Greek Bailout.
The negative reality of the economics of the forty year debt trade of the Milton Friedman Free To Choose floating currency regime, also known as the Banker regime of Neoliberalism, is that once lucrative inflationism, is now through creative destruction, turning into destructionism, where the Angela Merkel and EU ECB IMF Troika diktat regime, also known as the Beast regime of Neoauthoritarianism, is coming to claw back every bit of wealth garnered by capitalism, with the result being a Euro gulag of debt servitude governed by totalitarian collectivism and regional statism.
The Second Greek Bailout is the nail in the coffin for capitalism, which was based on growth and profit. Through creative destruction and regionalization, capitalism is being replaced by regional global governance, specifically a ten toed kingdom of regional global governance, where diktat is de rigueur.
Socialism Today writes What Is The Future Of Socialism. George Monbiot, a prominent figure in the anti-globalisation and anti-capitalist movement. The European Social Forum (Paris, November 2003), commented Monbiot, represented a bottomless pit of discontent. (Rattling the bars, Guardian, 18 November 2003) “Whenever anyone announced that capitalism in all its forms should be overthrown, everyone cheered. But is this what we really want? And, if so, with what do we hope to replace it? And could that other system be established without violent repression?”
Is there life after capitalism? Monbiot’s ‘answer’ is another list of questions: is “totalitarianism the only means of eliminating capitalism? If so, and if, as almost all of us profess to do, we abhor totalitarianism, can we continue to call ourselves anti-capitalists? If there is no humane and democratic answer to the question of what a world without capitalism would look like, then should we not abandon the pursuit of unicorns, and concentrate on capturing and taming the beast whose den we already inhabit”. In other words: No. There is no alternative to capitalism! Monbiot cannot see beyond the totalitarian model of Stalinism.
Why should the elimination of capitalism take a totalitarian form, as Monbiot believes? In fact, a genuine socialist transformation can only be carried through with the overwhelming support of the population. The heavy battalions of the working class internationally, concentrated in the advanced and some semi-developed countries, are today on a much higher economic and cultural level than the Russian working class of 1917. They have a preponderant social weight, and have experienced political democracy and mass trade union organisation. In other words, they have the capacity to ensure the democratic transformation of society and democratic running of socialist states.
But, argues Monbiot, “as long as incentives to cheat exist (and they always will) none of our alternatives could be applied universally without totalitarianism”. This is a variant of the ‘human nature’ objection to socialism: ‘people are selfish and greedy’. As if the egotistical pursuit of self-interest has not been generated by capitalism over many generations, based as it is on the exploitation of workers’ labour power and the accumulation of wealth by a minority, in other words a system based on greed for profit. Monbiot, it seems, cannot conceive of a social system operating on a higher level than capitalism, steadily eliminating scarcity (wiping out poverty and overcoming inequality). A socialist planned economy, run under workers’ democracy, would provide the basis for social cooperation and human solidarity on an international level. Setting out the ideological underpinnings of the struggle to change society remains the paramount task for Socialism Today.
Unknown to the socialists as well as to the libertarians, is that Daniel’s interpretation of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream presents the statue of the progressions of kingdoms, Daniel 2:31-45. Kings have ruled mankind throughout history; these have included Nebuchadnezzar ruling Babylon; Cyrus and Cyrus and Darius ruling Merdo Persia; Charlemagne ruling Rome; Tony Blair ruling Great Britain, Angela Merkel ruling the EU, and George Bush, The Decider, ruling America with Unilateral Authority. Soon ten kings will come to rule, each in his own regional power base. Most recently two iron kingdoms, the combine of the UK and European rule, and the US Hegemony, have governed the world; their power is now flowing into a ten toed kingdom of regional global governance, Daniel 2:31-33.
God’s Sovereign Will, Ephesians 1:1-11, not any human action, will bring forth a revived Roman Empire, that is a German led Europe. In the supranational New Europe, national sovereignty will be seen as a relic of a bygone era. Martin Luther wrote correctly in On the Bondage of the Will, there is no free will for humanity because any will they might have is overwhelmed by the influence of sin.
God at the appropriate time will open the curtains, and onto the world’s stage will step the most credible of Europe’s political leaders, the Sovereign, Revelation 13:5-10. He will be accompanied by Europe’s banker, the Seignior, Revelation 13:11-18. These will have have EU wide sovereign authority. The Little Authority, Daniel 7:24-25, will work behind the scenes in regional framework agreements to change our times and laws. The people will be amazed by this, and place their faith and trust in the Sovereign; they will give their allegiance to his diktat, Revelation 13:3-4.
Life in Europe can now be characterized as a totalitarian collective. Totalitarian collectivism is the EU’s future. European Socialism will die in 2012. Diktat will provide seigniorage, that is moneyness, to replace the seigniorage of national treasury bonds. Diktat will become a currency, that is a payment used in the exchange of goods or services.
The seigniorage of fiat money is failing, and the seigniorage of diktat is rising in its place, as is seen in the rise of power of the EU ECB IMF Troika to appoint technocratic government in Greece and Italy as well as in the massive second Greek bailout agreement.
The very nature of government is changing. Sovereign nation states are being replace by regional global governance. The Beast regime of Neoauthoritarianism, Revelation 13:1-4, is rising to replace the Banker regime of Neoliberalism. This monster of statism and collectivism is rising from the profligate Mediterranean countries of Italy and Greece. The Beast’s seven heads are rising to occupy in all mankind’s institutions, and its ten horns are rising to govern in all of the world’s ten regions. The Beast regime of regional global governance is to replace the Banker regime of capitalism. The Beast regime is coming like a terminator that can’t be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until mankind is totally dominated and subdued.
Polemicist Tyler Durden writes Zero Hedge Negative Salaries, Negative Bailout and Now Negative Gold – Greece Just Became The Bankster’s Paradise. While Iceland is now known as the country that is the closest earthly approximation to banker hell, it is safe to say that Greece is the terrestrial equivalent of banker heaven. Because as explained earlier today, the country’s population is about to get a worse deal than your average run of the mill slave – they may get whipped, but at least never have to pay for the privilege, unlike the Greeks. Hence negative salaries. As also explained, the European bailout of Greece, is now formally a Greek bailout of Europe, funded by the country’s already negative primary surplus, or better said – deficit (don’t try to make mathematical sense of that – a scene out of Scanners is guaranteed). Hence, negative bailout. But the piece de resistance, and the reason why Greece is the in situ version of bankster heaven is the news from the NYT that Greece is also about to have negative gold. Ms. Katseli, an economist who was labor minister in the government of George Papandreou until she left in a cabinet reshuffle last June, was also upset that Greece’s lenders will have the right to seize the gold reserves in the Bank of Greece under the terms of the new deal. Well, they may be broke, and they may be bailing out Europe, but at least they’ll have no gold: sounds like a sweet deal – it makes perfect sense that Greeks are taking every incremental humiliation from a syndicate of few fat, bald types who have access to a digital money printer, with the supine determination of an Oliver Twist.
And Tyler Durden writes Projected PIIGS Pillage: 3233.5 Tons Of Gold To Be Confiscated By Insolvent European Banks. As the World Gold Council shows in its latest update, between all the PIIGS, who will with 100% certainty suffer the same fate as Greece (which has shown that unlike during World War 2, it is perfectly willing to turn over and do nothing) there is 3234 tonnes of gold to be plundered. And likely more as further constitutional amendments will likely make the confiscation of private gold the next big step. how much does this amount to? At today’s prices this is just shy of $185 billion. Of course by the time the market grasps what is going on the spot price of the yellow metal will be far, far higher.
And Tyler Durden writes Greece’s Lenders Have The Right To Seize National Gold Reserves.
And Tyler Durden writes Greece To Receive Negative Cash From Second Bailout. Earlier today, we learned the first stunner of the Greek “bailout package”, which courtesy of some convoluted transmission mechanisms would result in some, potentially quite many, Greek workers actually paying to retain their jobs: i.e., negative salaries. Now, having looked at the Eurogroup’s statement on the Greek bailout, we find another very creative use of “negative” numbers. And by creative we mean absolutely shocking and scandalous. First, as a reminder, even before the current bailout mechanism was in place, Greece barely saw 20% of any actual funding, with the bulk of the money going to European and Greek banks (of which the former ultimately also ended up funding the ECB and thus European banks). Furthermore, we already know that as part of the latest set of conditions of the second Greek bailout, an ‘Escrow Account” would be established: this is simply a means for Greek creditors to have a senior claims over any “bailout” cash that is actually disbursed for things such as, you know, a Greek bailout, where the money actually trickles down where it is most needed – the Greek citizens. Here is where it just got surreal. It turns out that not only will Greece not see a single penny from the Second Greek bailout, whose entire Use of Proceeds will be limited to funding debt interest and maturity payments, but the country will actually have to fund said escrow! You read that right: the Greek bailout #2 is nothing but a Greek-funded bailout of Europe’s insolvent banks… and the Greek constitution is about to be changed to reflect this!
I encourage one who has financial wealth to dollar cost average into gold bullion and take possession of it and store it in a gun safe on one’s property.
