Politicians have made stock trades before the crash!
Dear readers, I appeal to you. Do not continue to believe the lie! The first lie told to mankind was told by the Devil. He claimed that man could rule himself without the help of God. To answer this false statement, our Creator has allowed time to prove Satan to be wrong. One example of current events is a case in point; men can’t be trusted to govern properly.
Politicians have passed a law that makes them exempt to the same rules as the public that elected them. They have quietly given themselves the power to game the system, and many have made millions. It’s an unreported form of “insider trading”, but worse still; they also make policies that affect the market!
When you consider the fact that lobbyists give stock to Politian’s as gifts, it becomes clear that they will legislate in concert with the stock’s best interests. That puts governmental officials in bed with corporations, and the public is paying the fee for the whore! Honest people are losing everything in the markets, as these evil crooks are laughing in shameless luxury.
Now if that isn’t a crooked scale, I don’t know what is! There’s no balance there, all for the wicked, none for the hard working populous. For years people have said that these ones new logo is: “In MONEY we trust.” You could say they have a longing to commit evil deeds if there’s “something in it for” them. It’s quite apparent that the proof to that statement has reached new heights.
Throughout the course of man’s rule, it has eventually been the evil that have won all the booty. Historians have noted that humankind is in search of a mythical utopia of his own making. There’s no way that our ‘modern’ governments can achieve this idealist goal. Unless; of course, they have the manipulative “works of the Devil” as a hidden force of evil backing them!
“Do not put your trust in nobles, nor earthly man.” Ps. 146:3 “The love of money is the root of injurious things.” – 1 Ti. 6:10 “Love does not work evil to [our] neighbor.” – Ro. 13:10 “He who carries on sin, [does] works of the Devil.” – 1 Jo. 3:8
People around the globe are “fed up”, with mistreatment from those who have power over them. More of us are better informed, more connected, and intelligent enough to live by higher standards. The question then becomes; if the world’s elites are so educated: “Why are they not acting wisely? For what reason do they behave as if no standards exist? And how long do they think they can gather up all of earth’s resources, before the people are left with nothing?” “The weak, are caught [up] in the schemes… of the arrogant.” -Ps. 10:2
Specific complaints are; militarized control, “special interest” manipulated by lobbyists, tax breaks for millionaires, corporate kick-backs, and government money for ‘Banksters’. It all amounts to “class warfare”, and one interviewee said; “And we (the people) have lost!” Though world trade is down, in so-called “free countries”, some corporate profits have sky rocketed, and many politicians are fighting vehemently to keep it that way! The development of organizations by women is no surprise; like Citizens United. “Wicked men crave evil, his neighbor gets no mercy.” -Pr. 21:10
Modern examples of social change shows the disparity between the innocents, and of those who violently rebel. There’s allot more rulers who got into power with guns, than societies being changed through peaceful discourse. Armed conflicts that turned into governments; French Revolution, American Revolution, Mexican Civil Wars, Contra Warfare, Soviet Union’s collapse. There’s been peaceful protesters who’ve been abused by their governments; the Asian movement, “The Arab Spring”, Greek protesters, the “Occupy Wall Street” movement. Civil unrest of all sorts will be taking place at once. -Mt. 24:6
In several countries in the middle-east a denial of relations between families is common when religious dialogue occurs. This condition has caused brothers to kill brother; not unlike western Peoples of old. Fighting has broken out between Coptic Christians and Muslim groups; even churches were burnt and Mosques were raided as police have gotten involved. No matter where we live in the world though; it’s important to live according to God’s will. Otherwise we will die at the hands of our own brothers; it can happen to the poor, to students or royals alike! -Hag 2:2
How long can people in positions believe that force is the only way the effect change? Just how can government officials claim that they run a civilized cabinet when they resort to poisonous party discourses and refuse to work out their problems? The world’s rulers can no longer sell its citizens the idea that we’re living in “society”, when only one percent makes all the decisions! What follows next will be on a world scale, not just in a few countries. No government will be able to help another kingdom; they will all be in turmoil! It will be chaos like never before in recorded history, and be more global than the world wars! -Ps. 2:1
There’s been many science fiction writing, and films; one entitled “1984″, with ‘Big Brother’ watching the populous. Today technology now makes it possible for those in control to do this. Don’t think that your friendly local officials will always be in charge of this technical equipment! In the hands of those who chose extreme measures, the possibility is likely to increase. This type of global influence and control, can only lead to an abuse of power on a scale unknown to all of mankind. -Re. 13: 13-18
Does anyone know of new information on this mystery from the book of Revelation? Some book authors write that it is a political entity, or the world’s commerce. And some religious groups; (like WTB&TS) believe that Babylon the Great represents all false churches, but their own! We think it’s religious groups, and organized churches that go beyond God‘s laws. Please share your thoughts as well; is Babylon the Great only Christendom, or does she represent all major religions?
The Bible calls Babylon the Great, “mother of the harlots.” -Rev. 17
It shows her riding the ten kingdoms, AKA “the Wild Beast” -Rev. 13
She’s whore to kings, and the military is fearful she fell. -Rev. 18
Commerce becomes depressed; their partner is gone. -Rev. 18
If we don’t want to share in her fate, how serious should we become at leaving her? God says: “Get out!” In the Bible times, Babylon was a kingdom of a thousand temples. Before that a place called Bebel that built a tower to the heavens, later spread false religion around the globe. Also; YHWH God charged ancient Israel with destroying the false worship of Baal. In our common era, Jesus accused the religious leaders of false worship and instructed his disciples to not imitate these hypocrites.
True worship is therefore; not dictated by religious leaders that speak for their organization. Jesus said to: “Worship God with spirit and truth”, this does not include being subservient to money-making theological schools or corporations. Nor, does this mean that we blindly follow a beloved pastor, as “all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.” As individuals, families and study groups; it’s imperative that we take responsibility for our personal relationship with our Heavenly Father! The Babylon of all false religion will continue to lead the masses to the same place, destruction!
