Endure A Lot More, Get A Lot Less.

16 October, 2011

Greetings ya’ll,  thanks for stopping by The Countdown to see what’s new on the menu!

Today’s title we graciously thank  Pastor Jack Kelly for (see Grace Through Faith on Blogroll or check the link futher down this article).

Changing the title ever so slightly yields “Get A Lot More For A Lot Less!”, which sounds like today’s bargain shopping call to the masses.

Interesting to see how this ties into one of the main motivating factors of the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ farce movement, presented by “Big” outlets = money. This is ‘their’ mantra (Big Media, Big Corps, Big Pharma, Big Banker, and Big Brutha – “yea I know the spelling is funky”. treburn said) and they use and fund BOTH sides of ALL wars to profit from others deaths – physical and/or spiritual, while patiently waiting for the aftermath to settle so they can move in for their ‘feast’.

Money is the world’s god. The ability to ‘conjure a need’ out of ‘thin air’…like a magical spell. It can fulfill ‘all your wildest desires’…just rub the lamp (your wallet) and the ‘money genie’ will grant all your wishes…

Do you find it interesting that almost anyone you ask,”If you had three wishes…” most reply with “All the money in the world” (or “another three wishes”) or something to the tune of it? Wealth and power, without God’s restraints yields corruption…“always, everytime, globally and around the world…heh”, treburn laughed.

Also find it interesting that the the once ‘All Powerful American Dollar’ with all of it’s magical, occult and pagan symbols isn’t doing so well lately? Everything you and I pay one dollar for, is really worth about 1/4 of a penny…let that sink in for a sec.

The penny, minted in copper (pre-1985 or so)  is actually worth more  in precious metal price, than the dollar which represents one hundred of them…current market is around $3.75/Lb of copper! [CHECK HERE] (I’m not sure how many solid copper pennies would equal 1 pound, but it’s an experiment for homeschoolers?)

So what are you trying to say?

Sure money is a ‘medium of exchange’ as a method of trade. You can’t buy or sell without it nowadays. But let’s deal in semantics for a sec…notice what the definition of ‘medium’ is?

me·di·um  (md-m)

Hmm, how interesting the English language is…
We find it somewhat humorous how even Jesus told people you MUST choose between God and ‘mammon’:

mammon [ˈmæmən]
n
1. riches or wealth regarded as a source of evil and corruption
2. avarice or greed
[via Late Latin from New Testament Greek mammōnas, from Aramaic māmōnā wealth]
mammonish  adj
mammonism  n
mammonist , mammonite n
mammonistic  adj
[DEFINITION FOUND HERE]

Doesn’t Jesus also mention that medium (lukewarm) is not tolerated in any form or fashion by him, especially when it deals with our spiritual condition?

Rev. 3:14And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; 15I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. 17Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: 18I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. 19As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. 20Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. 21To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. 22He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

This church tried to use an excuse of being wealthy for their rotten spiritual condition. See also in Acts a former sorcerer wanted to BUY the things of the spirit (from Wikipedia):

But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one: 10to whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, “This man is the great power of God.” 11And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries. 12But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women. 13Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done. 14Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John: 15who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost: 16(for as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.) 17Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost. 18And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money, 19saying, “Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost.” 20But Peter said unto him, “Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. 21Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God. 22Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee, 23for I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity.” 24Then answered Simon, and said, “Pray ye to the Lord for me, that none of these things which ye have spoken come upon me.”[6]

Acts tells of a person named Simōn practicing magic in the city of Sebaste in Samaria, meeting with Philip the Evangelist, and then trying to offer money to the Apostles in exchange for miraculous abilities, specifically the power of laying on of hands. In Acts 8:20, Peter denounces Simon’s attitude, and declares, “May your money perish with you!”[EXCERPT FOUND HERE]

…and mediums (as a ‘witches’ – those channeling spirits were not tolerated either)…

Don’t get confused, money is ‘necessary’ to conduct business, as we are used to dealing this way, but what IS important is to ask ourselves is it the center of our life, or is it something/someone greater?

Traveling through this vein of thought…an example of a modern medium (and those supporting her)…
Interesting we see this big ‘vomit pile’ on yahoo today?

…and another working sucessfully working with mammon…

Does anyone else find it interesting this guy is being ‘postered in’ during this re-election time? And the ‘main thrust’ as it were, focused on the ECONOMY of the U.S.?


Herman Cain [WEBSITE FOUND HERE]

Uh, guys and gals, this 9-9-9 plan looks like a 6-6-6 plan from the ‘other side’ and it will be tied into our economy via RFID chipping, if used. And “NO!” I don’t believe the country should be run as a business, because that’s what is screwing it up. Businesses care about what? Their bottom dollar, not the people they are started to represent.

Sadly that is what the ‘president’ of the U.S. has become, nothing more than a ruler over a corporation. They have ruled out the definition of  ‘executive over a republic’ because they say we live in a democracy, which is not a republic – ruling out definition 2a and b. Need I remind ya’ll that the current ‘president’ is illegal – also ruling out definition 2a and b. All other definitions imply the president is subject to the ‘shareholders’, his ‘boss’, the citizenry of a nation…

pres·i·dent  (prz-dnt, -dnt)n.
1. One appointed or elected to preside over an organized body of people, such as an assembly or meeting.
2.

a. The chief executive of a republic.
b. The chief executive of the United States, serving as both chief of state and chief political executive.
3. The chief officer of a branch of government, corporation, board of trustees, university, or similar body.

Herman Cain’s plan even seems to mimic taxes found in A VIDEO GAME called THE SIMS…not to mention he is ‘popular’ where Barry Soteoro/Barack Obama failed (B.S./B.O. have their own semantics – things they stand for in common language).  Herman Cain’s name can also be literally translated to “Army man, First murderer”…just saying it’s interesting, not that it’s significant…yet:

Herman is a Dutch and English male given name. Its original meaning was “army man” (Arman) and derives from the Germanic elements “heri” meaning “army” combined with “man” meaning “man” (compare archaic Dutch “heer“, meaning “army” and “man“)[FOUND HERE]

Cain has four separate origins. From the Hebrew, it means ‘a spear’. In Jewish, Christian and Islamic tradition, Cain was the world’s first murderer. In Welsh Cain is a feminine name meaning ‘beautiful’ or ‘fair’ (this usage is completely unrelated to the Hebrew name). Thirdly, as a surname, Cain can be English or French in origin. In English it is derived from the Middle English word for a cane or reed, and was used of a tall, thin person. In French the surname comes from the town of Caen in Normandy, which was named for Gaulish words meaning ‘battle plain’.[FOUND HERE]

On the outside, Herman Cain as a candidate looks promising, but we aren’t fooled and we are watching to see what happens. Who knows? He could help America after all, but something doesn’t sit right to us about this guy. Can anyone else connect these dots please. I want to be wrong…

How to get the most out of  your beliefs…

Concentrating on the VERY near future, this comes from Pastor Jack Kelly’s website:

Rev. 7:9 which describes a multitude of post rapture believers that no one could count, coming from every nation, tribe, people and language and arriving in Heaven. This tells us that many of these believers will be gentiles, saved out of Daniel’s 70th Week before the Great Tribulation begins.

Some say this group is the church and place the rapture here, between the 6th and 7th seal judgments, but they can’t be right. In the first place John, the disciple most closely associated with the Church, doesn’t recognize them. But more to the point, their destiny is not the same as the Church’s. They are before the Throne of God, but are not seated there with Jesus like the Church will be (Ephesians 2:6) They will serve Him day and night in His Temple, but they will not reign with him and are never called either kings or priests.

I believe this great multitude of believers will have come to faith primarily because of the rapture. They will have heard the gospel but, neither accepting or rejecting it, will have put off making a decision until it’s too late. The rapture will remove the final obstacle to their conversion, providing confirmation that you and I were right in what we tried to tell them.

This is evidence of Gentiles being saved after the Rapture. But before you get too comfortable with this, remember that in order to arrive in heaven they will have had to die on Earth. They’ll be some of the first martyrs of the 70th Week. Waiting until after the rapture to be saved will not be like waiting for the next streetcar. They’ll have to endure a lot more to receive a lot less.

We find what he said here interesting too, as we have read and heard this MANY, MANY times throughout the internet during researching:

Some New Age teachers say the world is headed for it’s final leap of evolution. It’s a spiritual one that will usher in worldwide peace and harmony. They say born again Christians and Orthodox Jews are holding this up by clinging to the outmoded notion of a single Creator God who rules over all and they will have to taken out of its way. They liken the rapture to the surgical removal of a life threatening cancer from an otherwise healthy body.

Well, we don’t know about you, but this is one more sign for the doubters to believe, because the day of the Lord is coming soon, so PREPARE!

CHeers!

    I’m impressed, I should say. Actually seldom do I encounter a blog that is each educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve got hit the nail about the head. Your thought is fantastic; the problem is some thing that not sufficient persons are talking intelligently about. I’m fairly pleased that I stumbled across this in my research for some thing relating to this.

    RFID chipping? Where in creation did you hear that? I’ve been thinking he (Cain) looks like the best of the field.

      Yes, like I mentioned, he appears to be the best so far, but we are researching more to see…
      As to RFID chipping, it is no secret that it will become ubiquitous in the very new future. The internationalists have mentioned this method of the best form of asset tracking – even if you and I are considered by them as their ‘assets’. Just go back in time in this blog or check Verichip.com, Digital Angel and others to see whaere this is headed. If you have perused the over 1000 page health care bill available to see, you will find language which will require this RFID as a method to insure ‘proper health services’ per individual. The Word of God also confirms that some sort of mark (of the beast) will be required to buy or sell. Please do some research on your own and you will see where the ‘new’ monetary system is headed.
      Cheers!

    Im impressed, I have to say. Quite rarely do I come across a weblog thats both informative and entertaining, and let me tell you, youve hit the nail on the head. Your weblog is significant; the concern is one thing that not adequate people today are talking intelligently about. Im actually content that I stumbled across this in my search for one thing relating to this issue.
