until 1913 when President Woodrow Wilson signed into law the Federal
Reserve System was our country doomed. This is the private bank President
Jefferson referred to.
the support systems protecting our freedoms are presently being torn
down through our financial sector. Soon we will be totally chained
to the whims of powerful overlords who have the ability to jolt our
economy whenever we get out of line. This is all reminiscent of how
the slave traders chained their African human cargo to the bow of
the ship so that the captured men, women and children could not escape
or throw themselves overboard (See The Queen’s Slave Trader
by Nick Hazelwood). President Jefferson knew this.
may not have had a choice, but we do. To enable us on how best to
live in such a world will require physical, financial, and spiritual
first step is to sift and weigh which comforts are necessities. This
usually becomes apparent when there is the loss of a job. Suddenly
you are faced with trying to make ends meet because the money is no
longer there. Most Americans have been living well above their means
because life was good and they believed the lies of the credit card
companies who promised to make their lives even better. All outstanding
debt needs to be eliminated, and can be with determination.
the higher interest balances to a lower interest card. Pay the minimum
on the larger balance cards while paying as much as possible on the
smaller balance cards. As the smaller balance cards are paid off,
apply that amount, in addition, to what you are currently paying on
the next larger balance card and so on. Depending on your situation
it may be wise to borrow against a 401K or withdraw from an IRA to
eliminate the debt. It is not easy but it can be done, and for goodness
sake cut up all credit cards and live within your means. My parents
never owned a credit card. Their belief was if they did not have the
cash to pay for it they did not need it right then and there.
help with eliminating debt, make two lists, one of comforts and one
of necessities. This will help you in deciding which expenses are
a must and which are not. We have so much become creatures of comforts
that just when we think we cannot live without Cable-TV we find that
we would prefer to eat, so that cable is no longer a necessity. We
need to seriously examine every corner of our lifestyle and habits.
If you eat out five times a week, cut it back to once; if you are
paying an extra charge to have text messaging and internet on your
cell phone, eliminate it; if you can’t afford your mortgage,
sell the house and buy one you can afford. Every little bit helps
and will make all the difference when its crunch time.
It is very important to remember that the establishing of our once
great country was based on the trust our forefathers had in the Almighty
God. Their reliance was not on themselves but rather in their faith
that God would provide all their needs. Because of their faith, America
thrived and became a great nation, finding favor with God. If Americans
would once again revert so that we rely not on our government, jobs
or ourselves, but rather the provisions which are ours as a result
of us moving from fear to faith in a personal relationship with God
through His Son Jesus the Messiah, then we will again find favor with
I have studied world history and the Biblical principles found in
both the Old and New Testaments, I believe globalization is a political
and economic cancer, eating at all of the foundations of society,
while stripping away the rights of the average citizen in favor of
those who control the economics of a country via political consent
obtained from high places. This type of cancer is far more lethal
than any bullet could be for it is the tool of evil men in their quest
for world government control. As it spreads, it becomes the disease
of all absolutes that good government put into place. Where do we
go? What do we do? Who do we turn to? The only real answer is God
the Father, God the Son Jesus; and God the Holy Spirit. The reason
for why we have lost our financial, political and economic sovereignty
is because we, individually and as a country, stopped seeking God’s
see in the Old Testament how the children of Israel lived as slaves
under the pharaohs of Egypt. Only when they humbled themselves and
prayed for a deliverer did God send Moses. Pharaoh, believing his
own lie that he was impervious, challenged God’s authority,
and when he was forced to acknowledge that the power of God was omnipotent
did he give his consent for the Israelites to leave.
the wilderness the Israelites sinned various times, causing God to
punish them on each occasion. Because of their murmuring, God made
them to wander for 40 years until the generation who murmured died
off. After they entered the Promised Land, they were told to take
it through conquest: the children of the Living God went up against
the pagan’s. As long as the Israelites stayed in a right relationship
with God, they overcame, but when they reverted back to their own
way, they again became slaves.
Bible is replete with this pattern, beginning in the Garden of Eden
where Satan used deceit, deception and distortion to take away the
authority that God had given to Adam. Because of Adam and Eve’s
sin, God needed to find a way to redeem man from the curse of sin
which accompanied their fall. In the Old Testament man’s redemption
was through animal sacrifices, but in the fullness of time, God sent
His Son Jesus to be crucified for all the sins of the world.
us remember that Jesus was born in the midst of the evil, control
and slavery of the first world government, the Roman Empire. Jesus
came to give us life and to show us another way to live in times of
adversity; through the Spiritual power found in a personal relationship
with Him. I am not talking religion, I am talking about sustainability
through a personal faith in Jesus, the Messiah. For those who have
a once in a while reliance on God, the time is coming that will demand
total dependence on Him.
year ago I was diagnosed with metastasis breast cancer. Because it
had spread from the breast into the lymph nodes and spine I was told
my cancer was in a stage four. My whole world began to caved in. But
through my adversity God had a more excellent plan for me. He showed
me there are many things that can cause cancer and other illnesses.
I was not eating nutritious foods, thereby depriving my body of important
nutrients to keep it strong, I worked 24-7 thinking I was a “Wonder
Woman,” and thereby depleting my body and immune system. I was
forced to come face to face with the emotional toxins that were poisoning
my body through a bitterness I was not aware of. Lastly, I found I
did not like myself, something I carried from childhood, and thus
recognized this to be self-hatred.
is the end-result of anger. Anger accumulates when you harbor ill-feelings
and do not forgive and let go. The Bible addresses bitterness and
anger extensively. The cancer was God’s mercy to me. It was
the wake-up call of a lifetime as I had to face myself. Ps. 51:17
says that the “sacrifices of God are a broken and contrite heart.”
The Cross is where we exchange our bitterness and anger for peace
and joy found only in Jesus. This is truth. Once I let the anger go,
(forgiving myself) I could forgive others. God heard my cry in November,
2007 and provided a measure of strength to a body that could not go
on. In that moment of confession, He took away all the pain in my
spine which was from the cancer affecting the bones. That’s
Jesus. At every moment of my journey to wellness, He has provided
answers, direction, and life. I am content spiritually, physically,
mentally, and emotionally.

a world without safety nets it no longer matters what kind of problems
we are confronted with: high inflation, the high cost of living, joblessness,
sickness, despair, divorce, or the evil men who control the world.
It is God who delivers and provides, who sits on the edge of the world
(Isa. 40:20-31). It is for us to embrace His promises. The Bible is
very clear about one thing, if you seek God with all your heart, you
will find Him, but you must be sincere otherwise it doesn't work.
