Democracy

We’re back! It’s been a while since we entered a thought about Bible Prophecy from our studies, but we are hopefully ready to return to this feature.

Today, the study was in Isaiah 14! Yes, that chapter!

The situation we find is that people are programmed in this humanistic age to believe the Biblical way of doing things is by democracy, or majority rule! It is very funny how much California is considered a very liberal minded Democratic state, yet the vote of the people is overwhelmingly ignored and rejected by the courts, leaders and in fact, everyone!

We vote on important laws about English is the language of the state, or about the marriage being only between a man and a woman, or about how drug laws must be upped, or about all sorts of good things. But you can always count on the fact that the majority decision will be overthrown by a select few pompous clowns somewhere in the government, who believe they have the better decision making abilities that the public.

Frankly, the State of California is a dictatorship. The very few, usually appointed fools, run the state and the rest of the world can just go jump! To make matters even weirder, voter fraud is a huge open problem, but the few say this is not to be tampered with! Interesting.

There are also a huge number of stupid things the public will vote for (or we are lead to believe they voted for by those same suspected poll numbers). These almost always will go through without a hitch, and become law instantly!

The Bible makes it clear that majority rule is almost always going to be wrong in our world today. There cannot be a possibility of Godly, moral, ethical, righteous decisions that will ever come from a majority position. The majority will always side with the wrong, evil, distorted, selfish, hateful approach to a solution. It will go on until there is world unity about a world government, and this world governor will be the embodiment of the Devil, Satan, the great deceiver. He will sit on the throne ruling all nations in a very powerful way to remove all the Saints from the earth, and every Jewish person as well. He will be openly vile and evil, yet the world will worship at his feet.

But, Isaiah paints a very interesting picture that is so typical of human nature. We set up gods and then just as quickly as we swore undying commitment to this god, we turn on it and revel in its destruction! Talk about fickleness! Talk about being driven about by every wind of doctrine and opinion. Talk about not being able to recognize truth when we are staring it in the face!

All the world will be unified to come together under the most vile leader of all times, and then soon afterwards, when God smashes him, the world will be surprised that the leader has been just another hollow creature of a man, just as weak and stupid as the “majority” of people on the earth.

Broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many there are that go down that road. The lonely but solid and safe road is the one of righteousness and careful plodding, that follows what is right and true and in unity with the Holy Bible instruction we study each day. So, are you in the majority of the wild crowds that destroy? Or are you one of the few, brave, and strong?

International Trade

The United States has been hammering out Free Trade Agreements with all the nations of the world for many years. It does not matter what presidential administration is in power, the same work goes on under Democratic or Republican presidents and gets ratified in the Senate by majorities. Each time a Trade Agreement has passed, there has been severe cuts in American jobs and benefits.

While the few that know about the agreements say they boost the American economy and provide jobs, the opposite has in fact happened each time. While fat cats in politics and international corporations get fatter, the results for the average American citizen is never good. The agreements guarantee the American people will be stuck buying goods that do not meet up to American standards and large numbers of jobs will move to foreign lands.

The Bible consistently has a term for these arrangements. It is called political prostitution. It is never called anything else. There is no other way to describe it, other than harlotry. The American dream used to be autonomy. Presidents and Congress people would promise to make the United States independent of foreign goods and supplies. That promise is no longer even mentioned. Politicians today are hell-bent to prostitute our country, and don’t even lie about it to be elected!

What is wrong with international trade? People pay in two countries for the desires of a few people to get filthy rich for doing nothing. Just like a pimp beats, tortures, and abuses his prostitutes, these politicians and corporation owners do the same to the common worker. They force people to make goods for a nation they hate, and they force production for little or no reasonable wage.

Do we need these trade agreements? The answer is a loud No! The only time these agreements are needed is when a product is not worth exporting or importing. When America was a God-fearing country, they built the best wagons in the world and every nation sought after American carriages and wagons. They were tough, stylish, and inexpensive, even after paying shipping costs. There was no real prostitution, because the Americans were earning good wages and the foreigners were paying in gold backed currency. Things were on a level playing field.

But things can go wrong. Politicians will use good things happening to try to tap into the revenue stream to rob the worker to give to the destroyers and wasters. They will use government to regulate and destroy anything done in free enterprise to bring it under socialist-communist controls. So, a loyal good relationship that extends to foreign lands by a person in America, will be seized at to turn it into a prostitution arrangement headed up by pimps and politicians for the “common good” which is just the cover for gangster government.
