Good Day to each of you reading this column on the failure of man’s economy and the succession of God’s economy.
Satan knows man so very well for he knows the love of money is the root of all evil. Satan knows the Bible so very well for he knew that single word, “money” would be found 140 times in the Bible according to the new Strong’s expanded exhaustive concordance and that Jesus would speak on this very subject on the pluses and minuses as well as how to have a perfect economic government.
Satan knows the heart of man and his quest for money, lots of money for Satan uses money + power to give man many momentary desires. The Bible is filled with men and women who have desired to be “rich” so they could place their money or personal economy as their god.
If man would only read his Bible and study history, he would see the downfall of the greatest nations had to do with the economy of the nation.
In the simplest of terms, if man would be obedient to God and to love God first by carefully following all his commands, tithe his first fruits to God, lend to many nations but borrow from none, stay out of debt, be the head and not the tail, and not follow other gods and serve them, then man and the nation he resides in would be blessed to the fullest.
Honest weights and measures were established when trading either amongst the various persons internally or amongst other countries. Israel was not set up to be a service nation or a nation who strictly prints money to pay for goods, but a nation to manufacture goods internally to sell internally to its people and to other nations.
The word weights is used 6 times in the Strong’s exhaustive concordance and this word is only found in the Old Testament. It is so interesting that the word weights is used six (6) times and that same number is associated with man.
One word that we will be using in the failure of man’s economy will be inflation which is nowhere to be found in the Bible.
Let us look at the decline of the American economy and provide you with some very interesting information to ponder.
The Bible begins in Leviticus 19:36 (FF) with the following words, You shall have a true scale, true weights, a true bushel, a true gallon. I am your Ever=Living God Who brought you brought you out of the land of the Mitzeraim.
Proverbs 20:10 (FF) Different weights, and varying measures, Both alike will disgust the Lord.
Proverbs 20:23 (FF) Varying weights disgust the Lord; And dishonest scales are wrong.
Micah 6:11-12 (FF) Will I pardon the falsified scale? On the bag full of weights that deceive? –when the rich are stuffed full of oppression, and her populace speakers of lies, Who deceive with their tongue and their mouth?
Let me illustrate and you be the judge—The (BLS) or US Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the Consumer Price Index or what you and I pay rose 8.5% in March, hitting its highest level since 1981.
True or False? Look at ShadowStats who says the real CPI or Consumer Price Index is estimated or hit at 17.15% which is the steepest inflation rate since June of 1947 or 75 years.
If this is the case, what am I missing? First, spiking house prices aren’t added into the BLS. Hmm?
As for the BLS, they track a basket of goods and services based upon what an average American family would buy.
If the price of an item in the index rises, a lower-priced item is substituted (example—steak to ground beef), thus inflation is eliminated by substitution thus flawing the statistics.
Simply put, skewing the numbers to tell the public that things are that bad, but God says Different weights, and varying measures, Both alike will disgust the Lord.
As for numbers, here is something to think about as I was reading the Trends Journal in 4-12-22– Gas prices spiked 18.3 percent from last month, food prices were up 8.8 percent over the year, and if you want to fly somewhere, airline fares jumped up 23.6 percent from a year ago On the real hourly earning front, wages are not keeping up with inflation, therefore, the “substitution bias” will continue to escalate. While wages were up 5.6 percent, real average hourly earnings fell 0.8 percent from a year ago.
Are you ready for some more interesting news?
The consumer price index, which measures a wide-ranging basket of goods and services, jumped 8.5% from a year ago on an unadjusted basis, above even the already elevated Dow Jones estimate for 8.4%.
Excluding food and energy, so-called core CPI increased 6.5% on a 12-month basis, in line with the expectation.Jeff Cox @ CNBC
Excluding food and energy, so-called core CPI increased 6.5% on a 12-month basis, in line with the expectation.
Fellow Christian, read again the following– Micah 6:11-12 (FF) Will I pardon the falsified scale? On the bag full of weights that deceive? –when the rich are stuffed full of oppression, and her populace speakers of lies, Who deceive with their tongue and their mouth?
Let me continue with the CNBC article,
“The big news in the March report was that core price pressures finally appear to be moderating,” wrote Andrew Hunter, senior U.S. economist at Capital Economics. Hunter said he thinks the March increase will “mark the peak” for inflation as year-over-year comparisons drive the numbers lower and energy prices subside.
Federal Reserve Governor Lael Brainard said the slowing increase in core CPI is a “welcome” development in the effort to bring down inflation.
The question for you reading is have we peaked or are we seeing more inflation in the coming months along with a declining economy?
The United States is now the most indebted country in the world, but this was not what was supposed to be, for in Deuteronomy 15: 6 (FF) it says for your Ever-Living God will bless you, as He has promised, and you shall lend to many nations, but you will not borrow; and you shall rule over many nations, but they shall not rule over you.
Listen to God and follow his commandments, statutes and judgements and receive his blessing or receive the curse of an economic recession/depression.
Another point to be made is that consumer spending will decrease as inflation increases. Why? Employee wages are far below the inflation rate, as I write today, and the scary part is will the employee be able to buy enough goods and services to keep the economy from sinking!
The curses that this great republic is experiencing have been brought forth by not carefully following all of Gods commands. As we watch consumer spending decrease and people tighten their belts even more, the result is economic growth declining each month and inflation rising each month.
Fellow Christians, we can’t have it both ways and we can’t receive the blessings when we are under the curses for disobeying God’s commandments, statutes and judgements. The Lord will drive us and the king set over us to a nation unknown to us or our fathers.
I close this first part with this—If you love God, then obey his commandments, statutes and judgements and receive his blessings for man’s economy will keep declining and declining until we humble ourselves.
May you Bless God in all that you say and all that you do.
