i see reflections now--that likely were not apparent so much even 20 years ago--of "666 in their hand, or their forehead" (everything they do, or everything they think), now applicable to even crop production for profit, but i guess that doesn't mean that one could not still find gainful employment somewhere. But wherever the $ is being sought, the cheapest method is also usually sought, now, too, right. And that is not even getting in to the reality of a $ that is manipulated--and you have to be paid in $s, right. See the difference in United States Notes--what Kennedy was printing--and Federal Reserve Notes, iow. The second requires dilution, and inflation, etc, and they have in fact "crashed" over 99% since their inception. We just don't notice it, having been born and raised with a dollar that shrinks in value over time.
And if you advocate some other medium of exchange, you are an enemy of the state. Now i'm seeing the rise of cryptocurrency--BTC is up over $1000 each again--and imo the dollar is hanging by a thread now; it only lacks some trusted source, prolly a sovereign one, to create a trusted crypto exchange...i'm surprised Iran hasn't thought of it yet, actually. They are wanting to dump dollars, and a crypto exchange would be a fait accompli.
We can also witness that for like half of our workforce now--prolly 49%, lol--the alt seems to be to work for $, or "peanuts," for less and less than a living wage, every day. Imo it has been figured out that in a "democracy" only 51% of the pop needs to be content, see. There are many other reflections here, such as the debt being paid on $20 Trillion dollars, every day, and bailouts for bonuses, etc, but the point might be that i think one is fairly hard-pressed to justify taking a job for dollars now. The test might be if you even could eschew dollars for any amount of time; as the oppressed here have been forced to do. If you have a mortgage, it is of course pointless to pretend that you are not a slave to your mortgage, etc.
Spot on! It's all Satanic to the core. Ignorance is bliss as they say. God gave us the way to engage in commerce, and it was to be honest weights and measures. There is nothing honest about a central banking system with fractional reserve fiat currencies owned completely by the banking cartels which then take it and gamble it like drunk sailors. It's always been something that has bothered me. I knew what they were doing was wrong, but greed gets the worst of us so easily. I didn't want to look at what I was doing. I justified myself by the fact that I wasn't getting any of these idiotic loans, but I was still in the game making money off ignorant losers just the same. Jesus didn't come so we could now lend to our brother as well as our enemies. He came to tell us that our enemies were to be treated like our brothers. This means we're not supposed to lend money to anyone at interest. It's against the law to lend money at no interest in this country. It just seems so obvious to me now. I don't know why it took me so long to see this. Probably because I just wasn't ready for it until now. I wasn't ready to walk out in faith; I'm still not sure about it now. I just know that I'm much more willing than I ever was before.
People have no ideas what an incredibly massive Ponzi scheme this really is. They have no idea of the magnitude of the deception. It wasn't that long ago that people understood that pretending you had more money than you really did was immoral. Now it's openly condoned. God told Moses and especially Joshua to engage in usury with the inhabitants of the Promised Land. Why? Because in God's eyes it is an instrument of war. It still is. It's one of the best ways to enslave people, and place them into a death grip. It's what a mort(death) gage(grip) really is, yet people just can't wait to get one tied around their necks so they can pay for it for the rest of their lives.
I get these fliers in the mail to come down and see the great deals on new, used, and leased cars. They have scratch offs so I go down to get my 5 or 10 dollar Walmart gift card, but once in a while I sit down to see what their deal is just out of curiosity. I can't believe people are going for these con jobs. They're offering loans that will leave these suckers paying for a car or truck long after the it's completely worthless.
The scam is so simple, it could only work on a simpleton. They get you to focus on your monthly payment, and forget about the total cost with interest. As the monthly payment goes down, the payments extend out into infinity.
I can still remember the first time I decided to buy a house. I went in to get a loan, and after jumping through all the hoops, and signing all the paperwork, I started to ask the loan agent some questions. The house I was buying would end up costing me more than double with the interest payment plan. I woke up one night shortly after I had made an offer on a house. I had just put up the earnest money and started doing my own inspections. I was in a cold sweat, and feeling like I had just sold my soul to the devil. I called the realtor the next day and pulled out of the deal. I never used that mortgage. I decided that if I couldn't do it God's way, I didn't need a house. Less than a year and a half later I was moving into my first home. I owned the home outright. It was a better home in a better neighborhood for less money. I was still trapped though. I ended up buying four more houses before I finally realized that I was just gong to keep on doing this until I died. For what? It's pointless. It's all vanity. Even giving it up is vain. It's just for show if I haven't even got a glimpse of the kingdom.
We think we need to walk in faith because of what's to come, but we can put down something in earnest right now, and it ain't going to cause you to wake up in a cold sweat if you're being convicted. It causes you to sleep like a baby that's just been fed and burped, and wrapped up tight in its crib with a clean, fresh diaper.
My next door neighbor complains because some of the oldsters he bids jobs on want the job done for pennies. What he doesn't understand is that these old guys grew up in the depression. They remember when money used to be worth something; they're kinda living in the past. My next door neighbor is living in fantasy land as well. He doesn't get many jobs anymore. He just can't afford to do the jobs for what people want to pay. So he's going to take a pension that might just last the rest of his life if he doesn't take care of himself. Deep down he knows it, so he drinks and eats junk just to shorten his life so he doesn't run out of what little money he has left.
That sounds pretty bleak, but I'm planting crops, raising chickens and I just noticed that when Jesus says it will be just like the days of Sodom; he says they'll be buying and selling, planting and sowing, giving and taking in marriage. Well other than the marrying part, I'm doing all the rest so I think I'm in serious trouble if I don't figure out how to stop this compulsive gardening, and chicken ranching. I've become addicted to my organic garden and farm fresh free range chickens and eggs. I'm bloated with pride at my self sufficiency, and it's enough to disgust the most self satisfied Pharisees Jesus ever laid eyes on. When I point this stuff out to other people they think I'm being too judgmental. People tell me constantly to stop overthinking it; stop over analyzing it. The problem is that's the way I used to be in my reckless youth. Now, I notice things like being convicted by the Spirit; sometimes on an almost daily basis. I don't much care for it, but it seems to be having a beneficial effect on people around me; just not those who aren't into being convicted. I don't blame them; it's no fun. But playing this game with our funny money ain't any better. The best thing I can come up with is to just get rid of it, especially before it becomes completely worthless. When it reaches it's intrinsic value (zero) some people are going to get the message. I think there will still be plenty that don't though. After all, the whole world is deceived
