scourge: a whip used to inflict punishment. “The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.” Genesis 49:10. Sceptre: a scion, i.e. (lit.) a stick for punishing.
The Holy Bible provides us with a record of our political, religious, and spiritual histories. God’s Word is the same yesterday, today, and forever. So we can see where we are headed by looking at where we have been. Let’s start with our governmental history, going back to the point at which we departed from God’s Word, which is revealed to us through the children of Israel, chosen to represent us the people. They are being led by Samuel meaning heard of God, who had a direct communication with God. But the children of Israel wanted to be like the other nations, choosing to have a king rule them instead of God, which spoke through the mouth of Samuel, who describes the burdensome manner in which this king would rule his people. But they demanded it, and so they were given Saul, meaning to demand.
How Saul rules the people (1 Samuel 8:6-20) shows us not only how religion rules its people, but how the government, under socialism, will rule its people, the two systems being of one, symbolized by the iron mixed with the clay in the book of Daniel. Religion requires the people to pay 10% of their income to the Church. Under Socialism, the people will be required to pay 70% or more of their income to the Government. What is giving power to these self-serving systems, is laziness and greed. The people of religion are too lazy to judge themselves, like the children of Israel, who wanted a king to judge them. The proponents of socialism want something for free, which they do not deserve because they have not worked for it, the definition of greed: a rapacious desire for more than one needs or deserves. Rapacious: taking things by force; plundering (looting), which is taking place in cities across America. God’s Word teaches us that we are to enjoy the fruits of our labor, not someone else’s labor. In this, Socialism stands directly opposed to God’s Word, as does the Christian religion, which teaches that someone else carries the burden of our labor. “And as for the prophet, and the priest, and the people, that shall say, The burden of the Lord, I will even punish that man and his house.” Jeremiah 23:34
It is not only man’s greed and laziness that is giving power to Socialism. It is this demand for equality: the state or quality of being equal. But in the end, as the history of Socialism teaches us, the people are not made equally rich, but equally poor. Only the institutions, governmental and religious, and those that run them, are made rich. Fast forward a thousand years from the time of Saul, when the descendants of the children of Israel, the Jews, rejected the word of God, spoken through Jesus. The Christians followed suit, unwittingly rejecting the teachings of Jesus by buying into the teachings of yet another Saul, called Paul, whose doctrine of lies has created spiritual laziness and greed in so-called believers. The name might have been changed, but the spirit has not. Laziness and greed, spreading rapidly, the physical revealing the spiritual. The kingdom was rent from Saul and given to David. Two very different kings. Two very different spirits. Two very different teachings. Paul taught that salvation is a gift, not something you have to work for. Jesus taught that salvation is our reward for doing the works, the gift being the spiritual power through which the spiritual works are completed, which is salvation. We all have the ability and right to use this spiritual power— spiritual equality, the most important equality of all. It is the spiritual ointment that David spoke of, which will bring unity among the brethren (Psalms 133). Socialism does just the opposite, creating division in order to obtain its objective, which is total control over the people. Divide and Conquer. Socialism is luring the people in by offering them salvation without works, which is directly opposed to God’s Word, and therefore opposed to the spiritual principles upon which America was founded.
The word salvation means help. The word saved means deliver, protect, heal, save (self), be (make) whole. We are to save ourselves, “pull ourselves up by our bootstraps.” Not look to someone else to save us, which will only end up enslaving us. Salvation requires works on the part of the one obtaining it. America must now do what it takes to save itself from Socialism, which is using race to divide us, and reparations to ensure its success. Reparations: something done or money paid to make amends or compensate for a wrong, which (in this case) is slavery. Slavery is an outward expression of an inward condition. It appears there is equality in slavery as well. The fair-skinned Israelites were enslaved by the dark-skinned Egyptians for 390 years, nearly the same amount of time blacks were enslaved by the whites in America. Coincidence? I think not! Reparations appeal to the greed in the heart of man. The Red Man, the embodiment of God’s Spirit, tells us that greed is “the sickness of man’s heart,” causing an imbalance in the earth. An imbalance that is releasing a negative and destructive energy, manifesting in the form of bigger and more powerful storms and earthquakes. The Word of God teaches us that greed, the love of money, is the root of all evil. As the root gives life to the plant, greed gives life to the evil. Jesus said, “Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.” Socialism, the ideology of which stands in opposition to God’s Word, is an evil plant that must not be allowed to take root in the Country that stands for Freedom! Socialism is the scourge of America; a whip used to inflict punishment, under which we will all be treated as slaves. “The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.” Genesis 49:10
“The word sceptre means a scion, i.e. (lit.) a stick for punishing. As long as we remain under the spirit of Judah, we remain under its punishment, which is manifesting itself in the form of terrorism and oppression. The feet symbolize the age of Pisces, synonymous with the era of Isaac, and with the reign of Judah. We have left this era chronologically, but we will remain under its tyranny until we drive the impurities out of our heart, through which we bring in Shiloh, meaning to be tranquil, secure, successful, be happy, prosper, be in safety. Those that reach this state will have entered the ark of the covenant, the ark of safety, abiding in God’s protection, safe from the flood of evilness that is quickly rising upon the earth— and upon the heart.”
