There has recently been an observation made that at the current rate of pollution we will run out of breathable air and potable drinking water in 14 years. Whether thats far fetched or not its time we learned from history. Capitalists need to pay attention volunteerily in an effort to have more resources in use. Everyone from Capitalists to Socialists an need to pay attention to something else in our history. Gods glory as a result of historical ignorance of his will.

 

Heb 1:1 ¶ God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,

Heb 1:2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

 

 

Each Time God gave a command. The people reacted. God was Glorified. When The people obeyed they Prospered. When they disobeyed their Lineage was wiped out.

The Best short example:

 

Nu 16:27 So they gat up from the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram, on every side: and Dathan and Abiram came out, and stood in the door of their tents, and their wives, and their sons, and their little children.

Nu 16:28 And Moses said, Hereby ye shall know that the LORD hath sent me to do all these works; for I have not done them of mine own mind.

Nu 16:29 If these men die the common death of all men, or if they be visited after the visitation of all men; then the LORD hath not sent me.

Nu 16:30 But if the LORD make a new thing, and the earth open her mouth, and swallow them up, with all that appertain unto them, and they go down quick into the pit; then ye shall understand that these men have provoked the LORD.

Nu 16:31 And it came to pass, as he had made an end of speaking all these words, that the ground clave asunder that was under them:

Nu 16:32 And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their houses, and all the men that appertained unto Korah, and all their goods.

Nu 16:33 They, and all that appertained to them, went down alive into the pit, and the earth closed upon them: and they perished from among the congregation.

Nu 16:34 And all Israel that were round about them fled at the cry of them: for they said, Lest the earth swallow us up also.

Nu 16:35 ¶ And there came out a fire from the LORD, and consumed the two hundred and fifty men that offered incense.

Nu 16:36 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

Nu 16:37 Speak unto Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest, that he take up the censers out of the burning, and scatter thou the fire yonder; for they are hallowed.

 

Ac 2:43 And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles.

Ac 2:44 And all that believed were together, and had all things common;

Ac 2:45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need.

Ac 2:46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,

Ac 2:47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.

 

 

 

 

As we Begin further observations lets start with a few Quotes from some knowledgable sources.

 

 

"Speak not to me of good men but only rather speak to me of men bound by the chains of the Constitution.” Thomas Jefferson.

 

————————

"Free government is founded in jealousy, not confidence.  It is jealousy and not confidence which prescribes limited constitutions, to bind those we are obliged to trust with power…. In questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in men, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution." – Thomas Jefferson, 1799

 

"Freedom is never an achieved state; like electricity, we've got to keep generating it or the lights go out." – Wayne LaPierre

 

"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." – Samuel Adams

 

"The greatest tyrannies are always perpetrated in the name of the noblest causes." – Thomas Paine

 

"The attempt to make heaven on earth invariably produces hell." – Karl Popper

So here is the quandri: As we can see one persons happiness is not always anothers. Capitalism in its purest form is an oligarchy, Pure Socialism eliminates the power of will. Communism is the destruction of civilization, and hiding the destruction. As stated elseware in this list of texts Pure Democracy with a Federal Governement elected under an organized Republic actually is a Peacefull Anarchy. Domestic Violence being the only threat.

 

A new form of Free Enterprise is rising out of the shambles of what we call our culture. Networking our resources is what was first designed by Jesus. As one can discover if one puts Biblical contexts in Acts in with Proverbs and realizes That King David like Jesus must've networked spiritualy. Co-operating with those David wrote the Psalms to in larger Bibles the Book of Psalms speak of most Psalms being sent to many Musicians around the Promised Land. Jesus instructed his Disciples to preach this Gospel as one he fulfilled (And to include extreme Brotherly Love) to all mankind. Again Peaceful Anarchy.

 

One small example:

Psalms 59 To the Chief Musician Altaschith, Mitchtam of David; when Saul sent and they watched the house to kill him. The Holy Bible in the King James Version. Thomas Nelson Publishers. Nashville. Copyright 1972 ny Thomas Nelson Inc. Printed in the republic of Korea. pp.665

 

There are at least 46 Psalms written within this network of singers. David or his people used this to stregthen their Culture. (I am referring to Songs documented as being written to another singer or Chief Musician.) Summary By Scott Skinner. Subject: of The Hoy Bible of the King James Version. Thomas Nelson Publishers. Nashille. Copyright 1972 ny Thomas Nelson Inc. Printed in the republic of Korea. Pp 636-715.

 

 

So what we are facing today is a collapse of Ethics. In epic proportions. Somethings that killed off all past Civilizations and in the Eyes of God can kill off us. We as a nation that claims in its pledge to be one nation under God must do what God has asked. Its in our God Given power. God wrote Commmandments many years ago in Stone. Our Founding Fathers lived by these commandments and expect us to as well.

 

Da 2:20 Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:

Mt 5:3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Mt 5:4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

Mt 5:5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

Mt 5:6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

Mt 5:7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

Mt 5:8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

Mt 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Mt 5:10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Mt 5:11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

Mt 13:16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.

Lu 6:21 Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh.

Lu 6:22 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake.

Lu 10:23 And he turned him unto his disciples, and said privately, Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see:

Lu 11:28 But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.

Lu 12:37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.

Lu 12:38 And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.

Lu 23:29 For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck.

Joh 20:29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

Ac 3:25 Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed.

Ro 4:7 Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.

Re 19:9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

Re 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

 

 

Jesus speaking of himself and the Law And the prophets can be examined by three distinct instances.

 

Lu 24:44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.

 

Mt 22:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

Mt 22:38 This is the first and great commandment.

Mt 22:39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

Mt 22:40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

 

Joh 5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

 

Sufficient to say, those that dwell day and night seeking for Gods Rightousness and knoweledge will get it. No Matter who or where they are.

 

"We must be aware and in control of our thoughts.

Matthew 15:7-11
7. [Ye] hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,
8. This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with [their] lips; but their heart is far from me.
9. But in vain they do worship me, teaching [for] doctrines the commandments of men.
10. And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand:
11. Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.

 

 

Jesus is talking to the Pharisees in this passage above. He talks about how they said and did all the right things, but their hearts were not in the right place. Pastor Ulysse reminded us that in the church, we can easily think about this scripture and think about all the “lost people” that are in the world around us who do good deeds, and think that it will be enough to get them into Heaven. If we read this section of scripture and think about all of “those other people”, we have completely missed the point. This section of scripture is meant for ALL of us to take personally, and take seriously. Every single day of our lives we need to make sure that we check to see where our hearts are. We cannot just take for granted that we pray, read the Bible, go to church, and volunteer our time, so everything must be right between us and God. This scripture proves the complete opposite. Everyone of us need to take special note to make sure that our hearts are close to God and never drift off (no matter if we are doing the right things with our words and actions or not)…

After President Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize recently, Pastor Ulysse started doing some research about the beginnings of the Nobel Prize. He took a few minutes to tell us how it began. Alfred Nobel was a scientist that made many contributions to weapons that impacted the world through warfare. One day, his brother died and the local paper made a terrible mistake. They thought that Alfred Nobel had died and they printed his obituary. Imagine his surprise when going to read his brother’s obituary Alfred Nobel found his own. He realized while reading it that his greatest contribution throughout the course of his life was bringing destruction and taking life from thousands. He knew as he read it that he had to change the legacy he was leaving. It was that instant that caused a complete shift for Nobel. He began the Nobel Peace Prize and completely changed what he will be remembered for.

Alfred Nobel made a conscious decision to shift his focus. Today, as Christians, we have the same ability to change what we focus on. If we have spent our entire lives devising wicked imaginations, plotting against anyone that stands in our way, thinking negatively, and dwelling on things that we shouldn’t, that can all change. It is a matter of choosing to give our thoughts to God and relying on Him for the strength to bring them into captivity. We don’t have to be what we’ve always been. God offers each of us new life and salvation. God offers us the ability to have a mind and heart that are clean for Him. All we have to do is accept it.

 

II Corinthians 10:4-6
4. (For the weapons of our warfare [are] not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
5. Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
6. And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

 

 

Even Jesus dealt with the struggle of keeping his mind focused. We can see this unfold in Matthew chapter 4. When the devil came and tempted Jesus, it wasn’t a physical presence standing in front of Him, it was a battle in His mind. While he was being tempted, Jesus had to find strength from the Word of God. He didn’t rely on what he thought, or what felt right. Jesus knew the scriptures, and when he was being tempted, that’s how He got through and kept his mind right, and that’s exactly what we need to do as we follow Christ today.We need to know the scriptures, and rely on them as our source of strength instead of getting caught up in what we think or what feels right. If we are going to be like Christ and hate what He hates, we have to have a mind that does not devise wicked imaginations. If we never study the Bible and don’t know what it says, how can we fight temptation in our minds? The simple answer is that we can’t.

 

In this study on what God hates, Pastor Ulysse asked this question: What if instead of fighting back and being so determined to win at any cost, we just let some battles pass? Of course he wasn’t talking about the spiritual battles we face. They always need to be won. But how about the physical battles we come up against? Some battles in the world are simply not worth winning. Sometimes it is a greater testimony to not fight in the first place and give it to God. He can handle it, and then our mind won’t be busy devising wicked imaginations on how to get back at someone, or be distracted by holding grudges.”

Back to the Study from the Pastor:

 

As we look deeper at the things that God hates, it gives us a greater understanding of what we need to steer clear of if we are going to live lives that please God. We have to learn to control no only our words and our actions, but our minds as well. God takes note of the things that occupy our minds, and we need to too. Allowing our imagination to wander is something that we have the power to control through God’s spirit, and we have to do it, because a heart that devises wicked imaginations is one of the things that God hates."

Ga 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

Col 3:11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.

 

 

Php 4:5 Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.

 

 

Martin Luther Kings dream is alive and well today. Its Alive because Men And Women everywhere Chose the fight at a certain time and in a certain place. The United States learned alot from History and has continually put that knowledge to good use. Lets not stop now. Capitalism has good things, Socialisim has good Things. Patriotism has good things. Use all three.
