You thought, you had it figured out!
By Don Twobears
I remember as a very young man, I had gone to the coast with friends and we began to fish the surf. Suddenly there was huge jerk on my line and I waited a few seconds and then jerked back, as hard as I knew how, to set the hook. Withing a few minutes we began to see the fish on the end of the line. I was quite used to fresh water fishing and in like manner I reached out and grabbed the fish by the bottom jaw and just as quickly, it bit me, teeth and all. It was not some really bad bite, but was big enough to get my attention and I dropped the fish, to this day, I will NOT fish the oceans, I do NOT swim the oceans. It is lovely to see and smell, to be around and yes I love Shrimp and Crab, but someone else is going to catch them. What I had learned was that, things are not always what they appear to be and one of these things we deal with daily, is money.
Everyone just loves money! You can do so much with it and people will bend over backwards for it, if it’s yours and they think they can get it from you. Some people would be willing to kill you for it, or at least beat the snot out of you for it. Others would be willing to swindle you out of it at any cost, short of killing someone for it, that is. So…what is it about money, that makes it of any real value? Essentially, it is nothing more than a piece of paper, with some ink on it to create a certain picture, the Presidents on one side and the Treasury Building on the other. Did you know…money only has value, if someone convinces you, it has value?! That is the sole job of the Treasury Department.
When I was young and in school, I was told that a Dollar bill was guaranteed to be worth a dollar, because it was backed by gold in Fort Knox. That of course no longer applies anymore, they don’t have enough Gold anywhere in the USA to cover the cost of our Dollars. We have in stead “Federal Reserve Note” and it is now the responsibility of the Federal Reserve to give our currency value. That means if the Federal Reserve wanted to say the $1 dollar bill was worthless, it would then be worthless…of no value at all. You could blow your nose on it, use it for tissue paper. So what am I saying here?! I am saying that our money, the dollars, are absolutely worthless in value. Because it is of value, “IF WE BELIEVE” the Federal Reserve says so! Incredible…right??
This is the basis for the Older ones in our Country, that are angry with the Government! Nothing has value anymore! Can you imagine the ramifications on the everyday American, if the Whole of Our Society here in the USA, began thinking NOTHING…including Money…had value?? Our entire financial establishment would collapse and nothing would have any worth! All the stores would close they’re doors, food would rot on the shelves, people would have to go back to the “Bartering System”! Wall Street would loose it’s influence and die, the Military would have no leadership and would collapse from within, in a matter of weeks. Every country capable, would then descend on the US and try and take the US by force. Anarchy would be the game of the day, everyday…and no one would be exempt! Everything around you, would implode, everything would be worthless and on top of that, so would life! So…in a way, your “Belief in the American way”, fuels the very existence of this our Country and everything in it.
Far too many people, do not understand God! HE allows “Thoughts” in certain people. HE can change the very thoughts in your head and you will believe, what you just thought, because it was your thought, from your head or heart. What would happen to us, if one day God decided to give everyone in the USA, the idea that everything, including our money, was now worthless?! The collapse of this Country would be so loud, it would be heard everywhere on earth, at the same moment. And as quickly as that would happen, every other Country in the World would begin to collapse and value of anything, would be Gone!
Let’s look at some Biblical Verses here, lets start with;
Matthew 22:16-22 ” Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might entangle him in his talk. And they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou regardest not the person of men. Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not? But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites? Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? They say unto him, Caesar’s. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s. When they had heard these words, they marvelled, and left him, and went their way.”
So tell me my Friends, what belongs to Caesar? Nothing! Never did, never will!! What belongs to God? Absolutely everything!! That includes you and me and everyone that ever lives on this little planet earth! So now you understand what part of the “Great Delusion” may be and then know this, it is going on right now! Some how, somewhere, you got the idea in your head that, your thoughts were your own, right?! WRONG!!
Here’s something else to think about. God has last say on our thoughts right? So how do you know you are safe, where ever you go? How do you know the Government won’t come into your life and rid you of absolutely everything? You don’t!! There are NO assurances …anywhere!! Now maybe you understand why some Born-Again Believers keep saying, they don’t know how this country has stayed afloat thus far, except it be the hand of God! Does this make any sense to you?? You believe the sky is blue with white clouds, because someone told you what the color Blue and White are, Nothing more and nothing less than just that, you believed them.
Matthew 6:19-21 “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal. But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”
You want to live a failure, like no other ever known to man, keep putting your faith in money! Then get ready for that ride to HELL, because the “Intent of Your Heart” was/is evil! And after all this time, you were so envious of the 1%’ers, right?!
Jesus Christ…IS…GOD ALMIGHTY!!!
