HARD TIMES, Part 9
"And I heard another Voice from Heaven crying ‘Come out of her, my People, lest you become partaker of her sins and not partake of her plagues, for her sins have reached unto Heaven and God has remembered her lawlessness. Reward her just as she rewarded you and double unto her according to her works." - Revelation 18:4-6
In this series of articles, we have been discussing certain events of an economic nature, some of which have transpired already and some still future, that are designed to eliminate the ‘middle class’ in America through taxation, inflation and military conquest. In so doing, I hope to touch on the following issues and possible courses of action available to us.
INFLATION - THE COMING CURRENCY SHORTAGE - ELECTRONIC MONEY - NEW KINDS OF WEALTH - REASON FOR THE ASIAN BANKING CRISIS - THE REAL REASON FOR Y2K SCARE - CAPITAL FLIGHT & SEVERE PENALTIES
TAXATION - REASON FOR THE SAVINGS & LOAN SCANDAL - THE ILLEGAL SEIZURE OF ASSETS, HOMES, RIVERS & WILDERNESS AREAS - THE NEXT MASSIVE TAX LEVY - TAX HAVENS - OFF SHORE BANKING - TRUSTS - FOUNDATIONS - BEST PLACES TO HIDE ASSETS - FORMATION OF SMALL CLOSE KNIT COMMUNITIES - BARTER EXCHANGES - E-GOLD
INVASION OF PRIVACY - NATIONAL I. D. DRIVERS LICENSE - NEW DEFINITIONS OF ‘TERRORIST GROUPS’ - NATIONAL DATA BASE FOR ALL WORKING AMERICANS - NATIONAL DATA BASE FOR MEDICAL RECORDS - DANGEROUS NEW EXECUTIVE ORDERS - GUN CONFISCATION - COMING OF U. N. PEACE KEEPERS TO AMERICA - AND MUCH MORE.
A SHORT HISTORY OF MAMMON
There are economic laws that will make or break us, kind of like the rock that the scriptures spoke of; if you fall on it, it will break you. If it falls on you, it will grind you to powder. When Jesus told a crowd of people, "If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I speak to you of heavenly things?", (John 3:12) he was referring to the economic principles he had laid down.
The Seventh Trumpet is at once an Intelligence Report and a Spiritual Commentary upon the Events and Affairs of our Times. It is intended to be an ongoing Educational Curriculum based on the subterranean streams of economic, social, political, spiritual and historical facts, little known to the general population.
FRIENDS, Three weeks ago, we issued the strongest warning yet to our readers about the coming collapse of the Stock Markets and raised the Question, ‘Are Your Ready?’. Well, the slide last week of the NASDAQ and the Dow wiped out the retirement pensions of multiplied thousands of people. And sadly enough, many folks are contemplating going back to work, while others, who were about to retire, have deferred that option.
A few nights, ago, I went into a restaurant here in Lake Havasu City to eat. As I was sitting there, a gentleman came up to me, wringing his hands, and asking me what he should do now, with what little money he had left in the stock markets. He had read my last newsletter but did not like what he read, so I told him that if he had refused to act on that free advice, I did not believe he would follow any other free advice I offered him. (He had chided me because I use Scriptures at the beginning of my Newsletters.)
Beloved, the worst is yet to come. In other words, ‘You ain’t seen nothing yet.’ But first,
THE TRUTH ABOUT JEFFREY BRACKEEN
Far from trying to pass myself off as some kind of economic genius, I have to admit that I’ve violated some of the Biblical laws dealing with economics.
(One of which is ‘Owe no man anything’.) Now, while I am grateful to those who tried to teach me the right hand paths, in my youth, I’m afraid that those teachings did not cover economics. Jesus asked his listeners, "If you have been unfaithful with the ‘unrighteous mammon’, who will commit unto you great wealth? Or, in other words, If you have not been faithful with that which belongs to another man, who will give you that which belong to you? - Luke 16:12, 13
One of the great economic sins, that the Bible warns us against is ‘covetousness. Covetousness covers many areas of life. It may just mean plain old greed but mostly, it has to do with the desire to own or possess material things. And I have to admit, that that is one area where I went amiss. About a year after my wife and I were married, we got to looking around at the apartment where we lived and it was mighty sparse. So we went down to the furniture store and did what a lot of other people were doing - buying stuff on the All-American-Easy-Squeezy-Payment-Plan.
A few months later, we bought a car. It wasn’t too long before we discovered that we were both working (I was working for three companies simultaneously) just to make the payments on ‘keeping up with the Jones's.
What happens when people get in debt, is they lose the joy of working. It becomes a drudgery. In order to escape the rat race, my wife and two sons eventually moved out of Chicago to escape the ‘rat-race’. Yes, we were still in debt but we managed to pay off our creditors in a couple of years, by living a simple lifestyle. Even now, I encourage young families, who find themselves in debt, not to file bankruptcy, unless the situation is hopeless. Now, I must return to the meaning of Jesus’ expression, ‘unrighteous mammon’.
WHAT IS UNRIGHTEOUS MAMMON?
The word ‘mammon’ is Aramaic and it refers to anything saved up or hoarded. Generally, this means money. First of all, let me say that there is nothing wrong with money itself or even with owning money. By money, we mean those things which are commonly used as a medium of exchange, such as gold, silver, paper currency, wampum and whiskey. When the Apostle said, "The love of money is the root of all evil" he was speaking a great truth. He added, "which some have ‘coveted’ after and have erred from the Faith and pierced themselves through with many sorrows." - I Timothy 6:10 How many marriages have been destroyed because debt drove a wedge between two people.
Lending money out for interest is not necessarily evil, in itself. When we
speak of ‘usury’ today, we generally mean money which has been lent out at very high rates of interest. Jesus was not opposed to lending money out for interest, otherwise, he would never have said what he did about the man, who hid the talent of gold entrusted to him, by burying it in the ground. Jesus was actually speaking of himself as Lord of Glory, when he reproved the unfaithful steward by saying, "Therefore, you should have entrusted my money to the money changers and when I returned, I would have received mine back with interest." - Matthew 25:27
GOD’S PEOPLE TO BE THE CAPITALISTS OF NATIONS
I believe that it was the desire of the LORD JHVH that his people should lend to others, therefore, becoming the ‘capitalists’ for other countries. "For the LORD your God blesses you, as he promised you. You shall lend to many nations but you shall not borrow. You will reign over many nations but they shall not reign over you." - Deuteronomy 15:6
Having said this, however, let me point out that they were never supposed to lend money to each other at interest. A cardinal law of the Bible is, "The lender is the servant to him who lends", that is what Moses was getting at, when he commanded, "You shall not lend with interest unto your bother - interest on money, interest on food, interest on anything that is lent with interest - Unto the foreigner, you may lend with interest but unto your brother, you shall not lend with interest." - Deut. 23:19,20
By the time that Jesus appeared in land of Israel, this law had been so grievously violated that usury had destroyed the middle class, leaving only two classes of people - the wealthy land owners and the very poor. So, when he began calling upon his countrymen to lend to their brethren without interest, it fell upon their ears like some communist scheme. He called upon them to "Give to everyman that asks of you, even to him who takes away your goods and do not ask them to return them. As you would have others do to you, do to them likewise. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Even sinners love those who love them. If you lend to them expecting a return, what reward do you have? For sinners lend to sinners, with the expectation of being repaid. But love your enemies and do good. Lend hoping for nothing in return, and your reward shall be great and you shall be called the Children of the Highest." -Luke 6:30-35
Instead of investing in stocks and bonds, Jesus wanted his followers to invest in people. He said, ". . . the children of this world are wiser in their generation than the Children of Light. I say unto you, Make for yourselves friends with the ‘mammon of unrighteousness, so that when you fail, (die) they will receive you into everlasting homes." - Luke 16:8,9 To the wealthy Christians of the Laodicean Age (our age), Jesus prophesied, "So, then because you are lukewarm - neither hot or cold, I will spit you out of my mouth, because you say, ‘I am rich and increased with goods and have need of nothing - not realizing that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked." - Revelation 3:16, 17
OUR LOSS OF COMMUNITY
If Jesus were here today, living at this time of stress, I believe he would be calling upon people to form ‘intentional communities’ for the support of extended families. Well do I remember my days up in Montana, when a friend
and I were giving seminars to teach people how to get out of paying a lot of taxes, by using legal loopholes and trusts. Certain individuals, who had attended our seminars, just decided not to pay any taxes at all (which was not what we were trying to accomplish). But my heart was moved when I saw the agents of the I.R.S. come and seize the possessions of those persons and even locking a couple of them up for a few months.
Regardless of whether you believe the 16th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was legally ratified or not, doesn’t make a lot of difference. What I observed is that there was no structure of support for the spouses and families of those champions of liberty, who stuck their necks out for the rest of us by protesting the so-called Federal Income Tax. Every soldier who goes forth to battle should have the comfort of knowing that if something happens to him, there will be others to care for his family. We need to return to those ‘ties that bind’. We need covenants with one another, as strong as the marriage covenant itself.
A LITTLE HISTORY OF BABYLON
Two areas where modern education falls down is in history and economics. Even those who are sometimes well versed in history, turn out to be woefully ignorant of the mysteries of money. Permit me to quote a few passages from my book Forbidden Truths Revealed:
"When Sargon I, an Amorite (or Canaanite) pushed into the plain of
Sumeria in 2300 B.C. he encountered a settled people with a higher cultural level than his own. He waged 34 successful wars against the Sumerians and founder the Babylonian Empire. His dynasty lasted from 2302 to 2199 B.C. During that time, the settlement of Babylon grew from a small village into a great city. The king of Babylon glorified the God Marduk and imposed his state religion upon all his subject city-state. Whereas Sumerian art before the conquest by Sargon I, had been utilitarian and ‘homey’, the art of Babylon became a means for glorifying the State."
"When the Jewish people were carried captive to Babylon, many years before the time of Jesus, Babylon was at the height of its power. Its’ incredible walls stretched out before them for 21 miles and stood 300 feet high. They were so wide that chariots could race abreast of each other along them. . . .
BABYLONIAN MONEY SECRETS
The Babylonian empire rested on two pillars: Trade and Commerce. Yet her means of conquest was rather unusual. First, she sent her bankers to other peoples with loans. These were followed in short order by her armies, to ensure payment of interest. That must sound familiar to the poorer nations of South America and Africa. . ." (Pp. 423-424, Forbidden Truths Revealed)
Those Jews who returned to Jerusalem from captivity, never forgot what they learned in Babylon. Even their religion was tinged with Babylonish ideas. The Tulmud is not a ‘holy book’, rather, it is a collection of commentaries on the laws of Moses. If fact, it is so ‘unholy’ that I doubt you would every find copies of it in a public library. From one end of the Tulmud to the other, the teaching is clear. Jews have the right to do whatever they want with the Gentiles, because they are mere ‘cattle’. But the greatest secret they came away with, was the power of compound interest and the ‘fractional reserve system’. This would become their secret weapon against the Goy (Gentiles).
"It was in Babylon that the ‘fractional reserve’ system was developed and used so effectively. This shrewd principle permits a banker to lend out five or even ten times as much paper money over and above the gold he actually has on hand to cover it with.
"Money originally was anything of value, which could be used as a medium of exchange for trade, such as cattle, trinkets, gems, gold and silver. In time, gold became the preferred commodity of exchange because it could
be easily transported and had great worth but soon people began to leave their gold with a banker and to give a ‘gold receipt’ in exchange for goods. After awhile, the banker realized that the people often preferred to trade his ‘gold receipts’ back and forth rather than actually taking the gold out of his vault. And since the people often left their gold in his bank for extended periods of time, it dawned on him that he could lend some of it out at interest, thereby making himself another profit, since he also charged the depositor to keep the gold in the first place. In this respect, he was performing a valuable service to the community and becoming incredibly wealthy in the process.
"Then another realization came to him. He discovered that he could actually give out far more ‘gold receipts’ than he actually had gold on deposit and thereby multiplying his income in interest. The banker-goldsmith could issue paper receipts for five or six or ten times the amount of gold on hand, without anyone being the wiser. This went well for him unless there was a ‘run’ on his bank and the people discovered that there was little if any gold left in his bank." (pp. 395, 396 Ibid)
King Alfred in the 10th century assured that the effects and lands of those who loaned money upon usury should be forfeited to the crown and the lender not buried in consecrated ground. In the next century Edward the Confessor provided that usurers forfeit all property, be declared outlaws and banished from England.
Under Henry II in the 1100’s the estates of usurers were seized and their children disinherited. King John confiscated and gathered the wealth of all known usurers in the 13th century and in the 14th century loaning money was made a capital offense punishable by death.
THE BIRTH OF THE BANK OF ENGLAND AND ENGLAND’S NATIONAL DEBT
"As the year 1663 rolled around, England’ treasury was empty and in order to conclude her four year old war with King Louis XIV of France, she needed gold. Since most of the gold in circulation was now being hoarded by the Jews and their Gentile cohorts, King William II appealed to the gold-smiths and money lenders for a loan of five million pounds, which they were happy to give him. But as 1694 came in, the war with France was still raging and the treasury was again bare. So King William again approached the money-lenders for a loan of six million pounds. This time they granted the loan with a string attached.
"During the Autumn of 1694, all the money lenders (many of whom were Gentiles) met in Mercer’s Chapel, in London to draw up the blue prints for a National Bank. When William II asked for the loan, they stated their condition. First, a Charter must be granted to the lenders for the establishment of a bank to be known as the ‘Bank of England’ and Second, the bank must be granted the right to issue currency against the gold in its vaults. William II was all too willing to comply with these terms and thus began England’s national debt." (pp. 396)
ORIGIN OF THE ROTHSCHILDS
"In 1743, one of the greatest money-lenders of all time was born at Frankfort-on-the-Main in Germany. Amschel Moses Bauer, was the son of a rabbi. Because he was a wine dealer and a precious metal dealer, it was needful for him to travel extensively. As he approached old age, he grew tired of traveling and opened up a shop in Frankfort. Over the entrance to his shop, he placed a red shield (rothschild), thus acquiring the name Rothschild. His loans to various countries, not including personal loans, by the time he died, amounted to an incredible $462,000,000.
Before his death (in 1812) he set each of his five sons up in the banking business throughout the various countries of Europe. Amselm Rothschild (1773-1833) was to remain in Frankfort. Solomon Rothscild (1774-1835) was sent to Vienna. Nathan Rothschild (1777-1836) was sent to London. Charles Rothschild (1777-1836) was sent to Naples and James Rothschild (1792-1868) was placed in Paris.
The Rothschilds scored a tremendous coup on the London Stock Exchange at the conclusion to the Battle of Waterloo. Via carrier pigeon, they received news that Napoleon had lost but a rumor was spread throughout London stating just the opposite. Stocks crashed and the Rothschilds bought them for pennies on the pound.
In the United States, within the space of two years, 1781-1783, the Bank of North America opened and closed. Then, the First Bank of the United States came into operation for twenty years, 1791-1811 and this in turn, gave way to the Second Bank of the United States that ravaged the nation between 1816 and 1832. In 1913, the Federal Reserve was set up in the United States and authorized to lend currency into circulation, placing our entire economy on a debt basis. This private corporation was as much a part of the Federal Government as Federal Express.
THE LIBERATION OF THE JEWS
After Napoleon destroyed Feudal governments in Europe, the Jews were freed from their ‘ghettos’ and became visible in new professional avenues formerly closed to them. Karl Marx, wrote a letter to a fellow Jew, Baruch Levy, in which he wrote: "The Jewish people as a whole, will be its own Messiah. It will attain world dominion by the annihilation of monarchy, which has always been the support of individualism, and by the establishment of a world Republic in which the Jews will everywhere exercise the privilege of citizenship. In this NEW WORLD ORDER, the
children of Israel, who are scattered over the world, will furnish all the leaders without encountering opposition, and this will more particularly be the case if they succeed in getting the working masses under their control. The governments of the different peoples forming the World Republic will, through the victory of the proletariat, fall without difficulty into the hands of the Jews. It will then be possible for the Jewish rulers to abolish private property, and everywhere to make use of the resources of the State. Thus will the promise of the Talmud be fulfilled, in which is said, that when the Messianic times come, the Jews will have the property of the whole world in their hands."- Karl Marx, quoted in the Revue de Paris, June 1, 1928, page 574
When the French Revolution erupted, the Jews were very conspicuous. In fact the first shot of the revolution was fired by a Jew. The entire ruling class of France was whipped out and many large estates turned up in the hands of Jews. Even though thousands were slain, it would not be until the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia, that millions would be killed. From various accounts it appears that 40 million White Russians were killed in the purges. And about 80 million Chinese land owners perished in the Chinese Revolution.
Again, I will quote from my book, ‘Forbidden Truths Revealed’, "Just prior to the Russian Revolution, a Christian gentleman discovered the minutes from a meeting held in Hungary of Jewish Rabbis. Out of alarm, he published them and addressed his work to the ‘Little Flock’. Not long afterwards, these minutes were published in English, by Victor Marsden, under the title, ‘The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion’.
When Henry Ford, the inventor of mass production, returned from Russia, he wrote a book called, ‘The International Jew’ which was a kind of commentary on the Protocols.
Protocol #15, paragraph 1, reads: "When we at last definitely come into our Kingdom by the aid of Coups d’ etet prepared everywhere for one and the same day, after the worthlessness of all existing forms of governments has been definitely acknowledged (and not a little time will pass before that comes about, perhaps even a whole Century) we shall make it our task to see that against us such things as plots shall no longer exist. With this purpose in mind, we shall slay without mercy all who take arms (in hand) to oppose our coming into our Kingdom. Every kind of new institution or anything like a secret society will be punished with death. Those of them which are now in existence, are known to us, serve us and have served us, we shall disband and send into exile to conti
nents far removed from Europe. In this way, we shall proceed with those Goy Masons, who know too much. Such of these as we may for some reason spare will be kept in constant fear of exile."
According to Protocol #10, paragraphs 18-20, "The recognition of our Despot may also come before the destruction of the Constitution; the moment for this recognition will come when the peoples utterly wearied by the irregularities and incompetence - a matter which we shall arrange for - of their rulers, will clamor, ‘Away with them and give us one King over all the Earth, who will unite us and annihilate the causes of disorders - frontiers, nationalities, religion, state debts - who will give us peace and quiet which we cannot find under our rulers and representatives.
"But you yourselves perfectly well know that to produce the possibility of the expression of such wishes by all the nations, it is indispensable to trouble in all countries the people’s relations with their governments, so as to utterly exhaust humanity with dissention, hatred, struggle, envy and even by the use of torture, by starvation, by the inoculation of diseases, by want, so that the Goyim see no other issue than to take refuge in our complete sovereignty in money and in all else . . ."
"This hatred will be still further magnified by the effects of economic crisis, which will stop dealing on the exchanges and bring industry to a standstill. We shall create by all the secret subterranean methods open to us and with the aid of gold, which is all in our hands, a universal economic crisis, whereby we shall throw upon the streets whole mobs of workers simultaneously in all the countries of Europe [and of course America]. These mobs will rush delightedly to shed the blood of those whom, in the simplicity of their ignorance, they have envied from their cradles, and whose property they will then be able to loot. Ours they will not touch, because the moment of attack will be known to us and we shall take measures to protect our own." - Pp. 431-432, Forbidden Truths Revealed, Published by Koinonia Communication, 1994
Friends, the person here referred to as their ‘Despot’ will be the person, Christians have long called the ‘AntiChrist’. Where are we on God’s Timetable? We’re right on schedule, so we need to be informed, prepared and wise. Start getting ready.
