Economics has been called the dismal science and today we have no lack of evidence for that accusation. One has only to turn on the evening news (or shop for about anything) to know that something is seriously amiss.

Every new day brings word of some new economic calamity somewhere in the world.  Greece is on the verge of default, faith in all fiat currency is faltering, another bank is begging for a taxpayer bail out.   Fear and uncertainty are in the air.

Just this week, Spain is admitting it is expecting a bail out from EU central planners. Greece is worse, though a new bailout is in the works. Ireland also has huge debt problems, but these are so small relative to Spain and Italy.

Everybody talks about it, but nobody knows what to do about it. Everybody can recognize the problems, few can accurately identify the root causes, and nobody can demonstrate a viable solution. The talking heads drone on and on.  Droll assurances from the big bankers are wearing thin. Everybody assures us that the Economy is improving — just slowly.

It never occurs to most that a theological principle could lie at the heart of an economic problem. As noted in our last post, the Church today has deferred the rule of Christ to a future millennium. This gives the economic manipulators a completely open field. [see previous post (puppets, puppeteers, clueless public)]

More people are recognizing it is the moral, religious, and legal environment that drives the motivation for a productive, instead of a lazily consumptive economy.  Nonetheless, the majority in both Church and State today, are convinced that Christ never intended to press His authority until He “returns” and His Kingdom begins.

MYTH: The kingdom of Christ has been delayed until after His Second Coming.

The implications of this myth are profound in the area of economics. If men think Christ, as Divine Emperor, is not yet defining crime and punishment – they will be subject to whatever arbitrary laws men in power manage to enforce.

That is getting to be a scary prospect, as the current power brokers appear to lack a basic understanding of cause and effect in matters of the economy.  After a careful examination, MythBusters identified at least five economic factors that are severely affected.

                                   The Economic Implications of The Kingdom Delayed

1) Inflation. Without the moral compass of Biblical law, we are left at the mercy of the Majority and/or the Manipulators to increase our money supply. Simple inflation should cause wages to rise with costs, but instead, we are getting an increase in costs above wages.

2) Money: A generation after the Christian minority abandoned the theology that Christ was the head of Civil Government — the banking sector began pretending they were the Creator (of money, at least). The Civil War Greenback began the drive to disconnect measure and substance from Quantity in our money system (which is all we’ve had for over 40 years).

People are ever-so-gradually recognizing that there is no dollar or Euro, that these “things” are imaginary, and beneficial only to a corrupt banking system as a means to acquire title and control over the land and labor of the people and their civil governments.

3) Property Rights.  We are bitterly discovering that we have abdicated property rights in our own labor and property-we-trade-for-our-work – for the bait-and-switch promises of the Corporation of our national government. That bankrupt Corporation can only give what it first steals from others.

4) Central Control.  Our highest civil officials perpetrate and promote legal theft and murder on a grand scale.  The populace appears to be blind to it, and dumb when it comes to protest. Our trust in their protection is denied by their attempts to take away our ability to defend ourselves (gun control), Meantime, Homeland Security and the Social Security administrations are ordering hundreds of thousands of rounds of ammunition.

5) Debt.  ”Freedom is everybody’s banner, yet we voluntarily enslave ourselves through government deficits, personal debt, accepting debt-based “money”, and begging the US Govt to restrict “the other guy’s freedom” so that we can enjoy benefits at our neighbor’s expense.

                                   The Biblical Impossibility of The Kingdom Delayed

The Bible doesn’t leave room for this kind of thinking.  John the forerunner of Jesus, as well as the Messiah Himself, assumed that the Kingdom was engaging, even as they spoke.  Here are a few of the many verses which verify that the kingdom is now:

Mark 1:14 — Now after John had been taken into custody, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, 15 and saying, “ The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.”

Luke 9:27 — But I say to you truthfully, there are some of those standing here who will not taste death until they see the kingdom of God.”

Matt. 26:64 — Jesus said to him, “ You have said it yourself; nevertheless I tell you,hereafter you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of Power, and coming on the clouds of heaven.”

Daniel 2:44 — In the days of those kings [Rome] the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which will never be destroyed, and that kingdom will not be left for another people; it will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, but it will itself endure forever.

The Bible certainly allows for a culture to chose laws and morals by the will of the People, but what they cannot chose or control is the consequences of  those arbitrary actions.  Why should one mere man, or any group of men – have any more ethical authority to define law than some other man or group of men?

When Eve presumed the right to define good and evil based on her own standard of knowledge she introduced the reign of hell on earth.  Christ with His death and resurrection replaced that with the gradually increasing reign of heaven on earth:  “It is like a mustard seed, which a man took and  threw into his own garden; and  it grew and became a  tree….” (Lk. 13:19).

Case Closed: God has driven us into a corner. Man is running out of options and out of time. His only hope is submission to Christ in every realm of existence, including the economic. Ideas have consequences and what man believes about the future determines how he acts in the present.

MythBusters concludes that man as an economic actor will act according to his faith. If he believes the Majority controls the future, he will naturally gravitate toward pleasing the majority. But if he recognizes the Lord Christ as Lawgiver, Judge, and Emperor in the present, he will more likely be guided by the realities of Christ’s final evaluation when He brings the down the curtain on Human History.

Ask the average man on the street where his freedom comes from and you are likely to be met with a blank stare.  Those who venture an answer, are likely to tell you that  the U.S. Constitution or the Declaration of Independence is the source of their freedom.

However, the pursuit of human freedom for the majority inevitably results in the super-freedom of a tiny handful with corresponding tyranny over the majority.

MYTH:   The source of economic freedom lies in diligent pursuit of our own personal freedom in the context of government documents guaranteeing that freedom

The interaction of three cultural institutions ensures erosion of true freedom noted above.  These institutions include 1) the global bankers, 2) the 3 branches of the American federal government, and 3) the American people

The Illusion of Freedom

And The Power Elite

In 1956 C. Wright Mills stunned the nation with his book The Power Elite.  In it Mills described the interlocking interests of the military, corporate, and political elements in American society and how they manipulate the relatively powerless individual.  The book challenged prevailing attitudes toward freedom in an allegedly democratic social structure.

Government Puppets.  The 545 major players in the executive, judicial and legislative branches are therefore not the most influential members of society, in spite of their positions of apparent power.  None of them can attain office without being committed to furthering the agenda of the international money-controllers.

Should they ignore this basic fact of life, the elite can easily have one of the sex/ethical-misconduct manila folders in their file forwarded to a dutiful media outlet to abort their term of service.  If that fails, the elite are not averse to arranging an “accident” terminating much more than mere service.

Banking Puppeteers.   Everything the government does involves money, and neither the politicians’ salary nor his pet projects are going to get any traction unless the people that control the money sign the checks.  There might also be a bit more control over elections than meets the eye.  It was Joseph Stalin who said, it is not the people who vote in the elections that control the outcome, but the people who count  the votes.

A Manipulated Public.  Also note, that if the majority of the population (not just the voters) don’t want a law, it is not going to be enforced.  Remember prohibition – the great social experiment that was supposed to eliminate “demon rum” and corresponding vice?  Crime spiked way up, along with alcoholic consumption.

Imagine what would happen, if by some miracle we woke up in January and found Dr. Ron Paul in the White House.  The MassOfPeople would never tolerate his policies being implemented.  If somehow the masses didn’t ignore his reforms, how long do you think it would take for the “powers that [shouldn’t] be” to contrive something more deadly?  They  do whatever it takes to maintain their deceitful and tyrannical plunder of the United States and other nations through our military and imaginary reserve-currency.

Nonetheless, they maintain the illusion of freedom by allowing talk of liberty and democracy and how society enjoys the  benefit of law approved by the will of the people.  They may even finance most of it.  It may be one of their most cost-effective investments.

The Truth Shall Make You Free

History has persuaded me that those relatively glorious, albeit short, periods where families enjoyed a prosperous, rich standard of living and were not coerced by an ellite did not come about because of the majority vote of sinful, mortal men.

Instead it resulted from small minorities who acknowledged the absolute freedom and rights of the most important of all men who ranks above all others.  Jesus of Nazareth declared Himself to be “the way, the truth and the life” and promised that “ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.”  It is Christ, not a vote of the majority that lies at the heart of true freedom.

The background of the Greek term “Christ” (Hebrew: Messiah, or anointed/appointed one) pertained to the offices of prophet, priest, and king.  Both in Old and New Testaments, the royal, civil, office of the Christ seems to be emphasized above the others.  The function of the king was to “…judge us and go out before us and fight our battles” (I Sam. 8:20) and “…in righteousness he judges and makes war” (Rev. 19:11).

MythBusters has identified two major obstacles hindering the realization of this freedom.

  • The church today has deferred the rule of Christ to a future millennium.  This gives the manipulators a completely open field.  The church is not knowingly defending the murder/kidnap/steal agenda of the illuminati’s constellation of secret oath-keepers.  They are mostly ignorant of all that.
  • In the place of Christ’s kingly rule, the church vigorously defends vox populi vox Dei.  Her bedrock ethic is to “fall in with the many” (Ex. 23:1), “siding with the many” (Ex. 23:2), and being “partial to a poor man in his lawsuit” (Ex. 23:3).  In ignorance the church thinks that the best antidote against the tyranny of the few, is to poison the globe with the tyranny of the many.   As Mel Gibson’s character in The Patriot asked, “If I don’t like one tyrant 3,000 miles away, why would I like 3,000 tyrants one mile away?
Case Closed:  True freedom, including economic freedom, has not resulted from the  aspirations of a majority in a democratic society.  Apart from God, men may create the illusion of freedom, but power is inevitably concentrated in the hands of an elite who know how to manipulate the power of money.  Only when a nation submits to the Kingship of Christ will it experience true freedom under His perfect law of liberty.  The only thing missing is an educated and mobilized church that will press the crown rights of King Jesus in the economic realm, as in all others.
