Everyone is wondering what on earth is happening in government. As I have mentioned before, I'll mention again, it is so crazy watching the blatant lies that are just coming out—lies, lies, lies, lies—that's it's almost like the inmates of the insane asylum running the institution.

So let's continue on. Let's first of all come to 2-Peter 2. Now here's a principle on how the stealth revolution took place in religion, because look where Protestantism started, look where American Protestantism began with the pilgrims, and then look at Protestantism today. Again, it's almost like the inmates running the institution. Even just this week the new woman bishop of the Episcopal Church of America said—which the Episcopal Church of America endorses homosexual bishops and even one who is married to a man. Do you think they would have put up with that in stepping off the Mayflower? Never happen! As I mentioned before, the Achilles heel of Protestantism has always been Sunday. As I covered, they had a great witness in 1893 by Cardinal Gibbon of Baltimore who wrote Rome's Challenge to the Protestants—the same way with the government in the United States. You read the writings of the founding fathers, and especially if you go through the Federal Papers. And all of this you can get on-line. If they saw today's government, they would say, 'How did that happen?'

Here's the principle that they used. 2-Peter 2:1: "But there were also false prophets among the people, as indeed there will be false teachers among you… [Here's how they come in]: …who will stealthily introduce destructive heresies... [Now in religion]: …personally denying the Lord who bought them, and bringing swift destruction upon themselves." Now we can take this same principle and we can apply it to the stealth revolution that has taken place in the United States. Because the problem is everyone is looking for how to keep the government from falling into the wrong hands. It's already there.

Now notice, v 2: "And many people will follow as authoritative their destructive ways… [Are there destructive ways in the government today? Same thing, so here is a living principle, and I'll review this again for you, so you'll see how they did it.] …and because of them, the way of the Truth will be blasphemed. Also, through insatiable greed… [Who's getting rich?] …they will with enticing messages exploit you for gain… [Now religiously, and then politically, how do they do it? Tax and spend, tax and spend, tax and spend—right? Yes.] Then it says: …for whom the judgment of old is in full force, and their destruction is ever watching" (vs 2-3).

Let me review the points that I closed with on the first message of this, and let's see how this came about. This is with the super-elite who believe in theosophy, who do not believe in God the way that the Bible says, who are wealthy in this world, who are the kingmakers, the president-makers. They are also the bankers, but I don't think the candlestick maker and the baker.

Let's come to Matthew 4 and let's read something very interesting. Because as we covered in the first message, Satan has 'deceived the whole world.' And a covering and a veil has been knit over the people, a covering of deception. Just think of all the lies that are going out. Delores and I were watching one ad, 'Oh, get your restful sleep. It'll be so wonderful. However, if you take this, you may have thoughts of suicide'—among other things.

Let me just tell you the way the government is going concerning health, you better start taking care of your health, because the government isn't going to do it for you. That means you've got to read, you've got to study, you've got to put forth effort, you've got to know and understand what's going on. We live in the end of the age, we live where we have everything available to us, and what happens too many times, people kind of just close their minds when there is so much that they need to learn, rather than to get in and study and learn and learn and learn. We're preparing for eternal life, we're preparing to rule the world, we're preparing to take over and eliminate the religions of this world, and eliminate the governments of this world and, with Christ, institute the government and the way of God on the earth. Because the two major things that are wrong in the world today are: religion and government.

And that has deceived the whole world. Now back to the elite. Matthew 4. This is the temptation of Satan the devil against Christ. This is why He had to pass this temptation. This is important so we can see how this is broken down, and it's broken down exactly as I just said.

Matthew 4:3: "And when the tempter came to Him, he said, 'If You are the Son of God… [Now hearken back to Adam and Eve and the Garden of Eden. See how similar this is?] …If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.' But He answered and said, 'It is written, "Man… [Now this is every man and woman.]… man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God"'" (vs 3-4). Now think on that for a minute and reflect on two things:

  • Jesus was, before He came in the flesh, the Lord God of the Old Testament. He spoke all those words.

  • In the New Testament He is God manifested in the flesh. He is the Authority for the Word of God, not atheist scholars who don't believe in God, or denominational scholars who reject parts of the Word of God.

    • What do we have here? Are you going to work things out your own way and make the bread? No. How do you live your life, the way Satan wants you to live it? No!, The way God wants you to live it by every Word of God—correct? Yes. That's test number one. So we have the individual relationship here that's important to understand.

    • Verse 5: "Then the devil took Him to the Holy city and set Him upon the edge of the temple. And said to Him, 'If You are the Son of God, cast Yourself down; for it is written, "He shall give His angels charge concerning You, and they shall bear You up in their hands, lest You strike Your foot against a stone"'" (vs 5-6).

Now this is the same thing that Cain did. He wanted to do it his way. Satan wanted Jesus to tempt God by throwing Himself down. Now if He had done that and landed safely, don't you think that all the priests and the Pharisees would be down there clapping their hands, and saying, 'Oh, You must be the Messiah.' So you don't misuse the Word of God, you don't misuse the Spirit of God, you are faithful to God in everything.

    • Verse 7: "Jesus said to him, 'Again, it is written, "You shall not tempt the Lord your God"'….

    • This has to do with government. So we have testing of religion, testing of government. Notice what He says here, v 8: "After that, the devil took Him to an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory…. [And as Luke wrote, 'in a moment of time.' Now notice what he said, because this tells us who Satan is and 2-Cor.4:4 says he's 'the god of this world'—'theos.' Same word that is used of the true God.] …And said to Him, 'All these things will I give You, if You will fall down and worship me'" (vs 8-9). And that means as God.

So was He going to be true to God the Father in all circumstances? Yes! This is why the governments of this world are messed up. Now also, he controls all the money in the world, all the wealth in the world. So all you have to do to know who are those that Satan uses, and we know there are some who worship him openly, or secretly openly in their group. There are a lot that are used by Satan, who don't believe in God, but for the wealth and the power, they follow him, and he rewards them. So you need to understand that. These are what are called the super-elite of the world, in every country, in every government. These are the ones who are keeping the nations in the government that they have.

Now there's one last government that is yet to come, and I'll talk about this a little later, and that's world government. But let's go back and review what happened to the United States, and how is it that today we have a form of government, but that form of government is not the government.

This all started when Delores and I were watching the news and here are all these bills coming out—1,000-pages, 1,500-pages, 400-pages, 700-pages—and I'm sitting there, and Delores is wondering too, who writes all these things? How do we get these? They don't read them. Remember the stimulus package? Didn't read them. Remember the Tarp package? Didn't read them. Almost two-trillion dollars combined. Didn't read them, didn't have time to read them. If they didn't have time to read them, who wrote it, since you're supposed to be writing it? How did it get written? Somebody had to write it. What is your job? I'll just jump ahead. They don't write them, and I'll tell you who writes them in a little bit, and you will see that though there may be a few who are trying to do what is right, all of those in Congress are nothing but figureheads.

Now that the majority is the way it is, there's no opposition at all, and they don't give two hoots-to-tiddly-winks about what the opposition thinks. How did it get that way and why are they so blatant?

Let's come back to the days of FDR. FDR started out and he said, 'Herbert Hoover is the greatest spendthrift in the world. Look at all of the money that he has spent to try and recover this recession, this depression, and it's only gotten worse. You elect me and I'll make sure we have fiscal responsibility. I will make sure that we have the New Deal and we are going to have a recovery.' So everyone said, 'Yeah.' The first time in the history of America that the ruling party had the House, Senate (Congress), and the White House, with that much majority. So what did they do? Exactly like we see today, because this was phase two of The Revolution that Was—the inside sneak revolution. The first phase was Woodrow Wilson.

What was Woodrow Wilson's crowning glory and failure? The League of Nations. All of these people are world-government people, world-banker people, the super-elite. I don't have to name any names. If you don't have .eyes to see and ears to hear' and know what's going on, then I can't help you.

So in comes FDR. So here's the opportunity to bring about an elite stealth revolution that no one knows is taking place. You control the White House, the Senate, and the House (Congress), and he couldn't quite control the Supreme Court, but today they just ignore the Supreme Court in most cases anyhow. Now what I want you to learn out of all of this is this: please understand, you cannot solve spiritual problems of this nation or the world with political solutions. It won't work, because Satan controls the governments, deceives all people and nations, and he controls the religions.

So here's the opportunity. What he writes in here is 'this is a scientific revolution.' When they looked out and saw the opportunity and saw what they could do if they gained control. So here FDR had it all gift-wrapped for him.

Now I'm reading from the article, The Revolution Was, which you can download along with the other things I'll mention later:

  • Opportunity
  • The country whose fabulous wealth was in the modern forms, dynamic, functional and non-portable.
  • A people so politically naïve as to have passed a law against any attempt to overthrow their government by force. (The Revolution Was, throughout)

As if that would mean anything. 'Oh, we're against the government being overthrown by force. Good idea, let's write a law about that.' Who's to stop the army from coming in and saying, 'We're taking over, folks.' Would the law stop them? No. Remember when I gave on, The Mystery of Iniquity Already Works, the mystery of lawlessness, and here you're going to see it. Because the way they take over is legal and enact their own laws to put upon you to create a different government. So the revolution is virtually done.

  • The intention was to bring about what Aristotle called a revolution in the state, within the framework of existing law.

That's what happens—right?

Then from the point of view of the scientific revolutionary technic what would the problems be?

How can we get around this?

They set themselves down in sequence the following things:
The first, naturally, would be to capture the seat of government.

The Presidency, House/Senate (Congress)

The second would be to seize economic power.

So what did FDR do? By executive order of the President of the United States alone, FDR closed the banks, declared a holiday, and two weeks later demanded all the gold that everyone had, because the dollar was backed by gold. Delores and I remember this, when we were up in Boise, Idaho. We would go to this nice restaurant and they had gold coins and they had gold certificate dollars, where it says, 'give to the bearer on demand twenty-dollars worth of gold.'

Now a little later you're going to see that all we have is debt—a debt note. Your money is as worthless as Monopoly money, and the day of the psychological holding up of the dollar is soon coming to an end. You need to understand that, because God is not going to tolerate all of these lies, all of these rejections of Him, and it's going to come to an end. It will fulfill the prophecy of Deut. 28 that 'you shall borrow and you shall become the tail. You used to be high, now you're going to be brought down very low.' That's going to happen.

'Seize economic power' and that gave more power to the Federal Reserve. Who instituted the Federal Reserve? Woodrow Wilson in 1913, the year he was elected to his second term where he promised there would be no war. But, you see, they needed the Federal Reserve to borrow money for the war and we still owe it. Let's go on.

The third would be to mobilize by propaganda the forces of hatred.

They sure have it today, don't they? They've got the media out there. Ask Sarah Palin, ask anyone who wants to be honest, ask Clarence Thomas, ask Robert Bjork—the hatred, the attacks, the vitriol. After awhile everyone believes it, because they're naïve, and they're sinning against God. This is the punishment that comes down.

The fourth would be to reconcile and then attach to the revolution two great classes whose adherence is indispensable by whose interests are economically antagonistic namely the industrial wage earners and the farmers, called in Europe workers and peasants.

That's exactly what they have done. Today let's go back. During the time of FDR there were 40 people working on the farms to every 100 who lived in the cities. Today there are five. Those are controlled by giant corporations, and so you have to have the giant corporations on your side. You have to have the bankers on your side. And isn't it interesting, that all of this took place after the Federal Reserve came in to save us from future depressions.

And isn't it interesting, that when the income tax was initiated under Woodrow Wilson, they promised the taxes would never be higher than one percent Today with the tax propositions, and the dictators and the puppets who are in the government, everyone's going to soon be looking at forty to fifty-five to sixty percent of your money goes to the revolution, the stealth revolution that stole the country and are raping it. And that's punishment for the population for their sins, please understand that. Delores and I have talked about this many times and she said, 'God puts in the one that the nation deserves.' The way of the morals of this nation, we deserve the ones that we have, all of them. In it there may be a few honest people trying to do what is right, but what are they going to do? They have absolutely no power whatsoever.

The fifth would be to do with business whether to liquidate it or shackle it. (pg. 5)

Communists in Russia took over everything. They had a bloody revolution. Now these are the same ones who financed it out of New York City, in case you're not aware of that. And they said, 'Oh, we want to take over in America, but we don't want to have it all blown in pieces like it was in Russia, so this is how we're going to do it. We're going to stealthily take the things.' Now here's the big opportunity. Look at all the government programs that were instituted during the days of FDR and eighty percent of those bureaucracies are still there. They'll probably resurrect the WPA again here if unemployment gets any higher.

So, they're friendly with all the big corporations and what are do the big corporations do? Donate hundreds of millions of dollars over a process of time to get them elected so that they will reap the rewards. Isn't that true? Yes, indeed! And only certain corporations are the ones, who are approved by the super-elite, can make money.

(These five would have a certain imperative order in time and require immediate decisions because they belong to the program of conquest….

It came Bam! Bam! Bam! one after another during the first administration of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. What are we seeing today in the third phase of the revolution? 'We've got to get all of these things done now.' The biggest, highest spending of any government, spending more money already and borrowing more money in the first six months of this administration—that's why I say it's like the lunatics running the insane asylum—than all the other presidents from the beginning of Washington to this time. 'We've got to hurry up and get it! We've got to get this bill! We have to pass it!' 'Well, what's this blank page doing in the bill?' Never mind, we'll fill it in. You vote for it.'

What got me started on this was, Henry Waxman said, 'I haven't read my bill.' He said, 'I don't know what's in it.' I thought, 'You're sponsoring a bill and you don't know what's in it?' Who wrote it? I'll tell you later. It'll blow you away.

The sixth, in Burckhardt's devastating phrase, would be the "domestication of individuality"…

In other words, make us all the same and tame. Do you know how they've done that? Do you have fluoride in your water? Makes people so that they don't want to get in and resist, plus make life so complicated, you don't dare resist. So they're all domesticated.

…by any means that would make the individual more dependent upon government.

What do we have today? Forty percent of the population receive income and benefits from the government—right? Isn't that true? Yes, indeed! Probably going to be close to fifty or sixty percent if this administration is somehow not stopped.

The seventh would be the systematic reduction of all forms of rival authority.

How did they do that? Only two parties. Once in awhile we'll let a third party come in, like Perot, who was just kind of like a pip-squeak parrot to take away votes from George H. W. Bush, so William Clinton would get in. Only two parties, they are both corrupt.

The eighth would be to sustain popular faith in an unlimited public debt, for if that faith should break the government would be unable to borrow…

We're almost there, because of other nations.

…if it could not borrow, it could not spend, and the revolution must be able to borrow and spend the wealth of the rich or else it will be bankrupt.

Now remember, this was written before Obama was ever considered for anything.

The ninth would be to make the government itself the great capitalist and enterpriser….

So what happened, what has happened that we have seen? They own banks, they own investment houses, insurance companies, and automobile companies, the big corporations in America. They probably have to take over more. 'Oh, we've got to do this to save it. It's too big to fail.' In the meantime, the Federal Reserve is running amuck, printing money so fast that they'll probably have to build a whole new building to set up printing presses so they can print it.

…so that the ultimate power in initiative… [that is for the economy] …would pass from the hands of private enterprise to the all-powerful state.

For the smiling, lying president, whether it be FDR or Obama, or whoever. Everything is fine. You know, like the commercial with Allstate, 'you're in good hands with Allstate.' You're in good hands in the government. Let them take care of you. Let us give you health coverage and it will sky rocket out and they will have to say—they won't put it this way, but it'll come out virtually the same—Hitler was right. 'You're not worthy to live and spend any more money on you. Sorry, you can't have it. No medical care for you.' But you said universal health care. 'Oh, we know, but now we have limitations.' Like we saw on the news just the other night: they have universal health coverage in the state of Massachusetts, and they're going broke because of it. You know how long it takes for the average person to see a doctor in Massachusetts today? 49.6 days. 'But I'll die before I see a doctor.' Well, I can't change the schedule. 'Well, see the bureaucrat.' Well, he set up the schedule. There's nothing I can do. Yes, and the supposed conservative Mitt Romney set up the system.

The comment was made: 60-percent of Americans have chronic disease, because the food has been modified, engineered. They take medicine, they don't know how to take care of themselves, the food is preserved, homogenized, additives added to it. And let me just tell you this. I'll give you a short summary whether you're really going to get sick or not, which is this: if you eat out of boxes and cans and microwaves, you're on your way to very ill health, period! So that's why I say—because it looks like they're going to get the votes, and it looks like that they're going to take this revolution all the way through the third phase—and you better take care of yourself so you don't have to fall into the hands of these bureaucratic doctors, and the rationing by a bureaucrat standing there.

I remember seeing the ad against it. It was really a good ad. Here's a woman with a very serious condition, and there's the doctor talking to her. And here's this bespectacled bureaucrat whispering into the ear of the doctor, 'no, no, no, we can't give that treatment to this woman here.' All because the people have gone against God, because they don't realize and understand:

  • why God created them
  • where we're going
  • where we're headed
  • what we should be doing

So you know, all the senior citizens will not get any kind of coverage except a pain pill, and just quietly go home and die. 'After all, we've got to reduce the budget—don't we? Are you not patriotic? Don't you want to reduce the budget by dying?' That's what it amounts to, that's part of the revolution.

'Pass from private enterprise to the all powerful state.'

Does that not talk about health care? Yes, indeed.

The ninth would be to make the government itself the great capitalist and enterpriser so that ultimate power in initiative would pass from the hands of private enterprise to the all-powerful state.

Each one of these problems would have two sides, one the obverse, one the reverse, like a coin. One side would represent the revolutionary intent. The other side in each case would represent the Recovery… [Change you can believe in. Whereas everything that Roosevelt had, 'this is for the recovery, this is for the recovery.] …That was the side of the New Deal constantly held up to view.

And this is what Obama is saying, 'We'll save money, we'll cut taxes.' That's a lie, the biggest lie that has ever been given. Now I'll finish up here and then we'll look at some Scriptures. By the way, this was written by Garet Garrett, born 1878 and died in 1954. So I'll have this posted on line with some other things, too, with it.

But in no case was it true that for the ends of economic recovery alone one solution or one course and one only was feasible. In each case there was an alternative and therefore a choice to be made. What we shall see is that in every case the choice was the one that supposedly could not fail.

Sounds like today.

  • To ramify [expand] the authority and power of the executive government.

That's what we have today. And please understand this: by the decree of the President with no enactment of Congress or interference from the Supreme Court, by declaring a national emergency, and invoking already filed executive orders, he becomes the most iron-fisted dictator the world has ever seen, absolutely true! Take your property, take your money, move you wherever they want you. We'll talk about property a little bit later, but you don't own your property, you're only a beneficial user of it. You do not hold the real title, though you may have it paid off. You still own your property as long as there's peace and you live in it, but declare a national emergency, all bets are off.

  • To strengthen its hold on the economic life of the nation.

Has that happened? Yes.

  • To extend it's power over the individual.

Is that not true? I was thinking of it this morning. When you go from one country to another, you have to show your passport. But when you drive around the United States, what do you have to carry with you? Driver's license. If you're stopped by the police, you have to what? Show them your driver's license—is that not correct?

  • To degrade the parliamentary principle.

In other words, an impotent Congress that can do nothing. That's what we have today.

  • To impair the great American tradition of independent, Constitutional judicial power.
  • To weaken all other powers the power of private enterprise, the power of private finance, the power of state and local government.

Has that happened? Yes, The Revolution Was, that's the title of it. It's already taken place. Phase two, very successful. Phase three, looks like it's coming down—doesn't it? All because of the sins of the people. We'll see that here in just a little bit, because we rejected God through the churches, through the government, in the schools, in our private lives, and God is not going to take that without some kind of penalty.

As I mentioned in the first sermon, we are living in a unique time in history, just like it was before the Flood. So all of the wrath is going to come on this generation. It's going to come hard and heavy. You might not think that's fair. The next time you think that's not fair, you watch all of these brainless teenagers out there, texting, and twittering, cell phones, right in the presence of their parents—just ignoring them. They are making themselves fit for captivity. They know nothing, they understand nothing, the history have been deprived of them, they don't know anything about the founding fathers, they don't know anything about the Constitution, they don't know anything about God, they don't know anything about how to live, except to have fun, play, twitter, use their iPhone, their iPod and have sex. And then go to the government and get money. That's this young generation today. And you are headed for a terrible slaughter.

(go to the next track)

Now I will let you read this and what happened just exactly the same thing back then, Roosevelt ran on fiscal conservatism. 'We will cut your taxes, we won't raise them.' What happened? 'No one who has income of $250,000 or less will receive any tax increase—until after I get in office and decide to change my mind.'

Let's look at some things here that are very important to understand. Let's come to Proverbs 29:12: "If a ruler hearkens to lies, all his servants are wicked." That's what's happening. Not only does he hearken to lies, he believes them and espouses them, as well as FDR, as well as Woodrow Wilson, and almost every other President. Once in awhile you may get one who will try and do right and turn things around, but, oh, how they hate him. The campaign of hate. The campaign of hate is a smear-tactic of lies. Let me read you problem number three—to mobilize by propaganda the forces of hatred. Just a couple of paragraphs.

Who's the author of lies? Satan the devil, he's the father of it, been a liar from the beginning—right? Yes! All those who follow lies are of the father, Satan the devil. I don't care if you're the President, or you're a bum on the street, or you're homeless and you live under a freeway bridge, you believe lies and you speak lies, you're of your father the devil. Just the way it is.

Now here's what Lenin said, 'we must hate.' Now think about the Obama press, think about the comedians, think about what they have done to Sarah Palin, probably the only one who's trying to be honest. He [Lenin] says:

Hatred is the basis of Communism….

And we can say fascism. Jonah Goldberg wrote the book, Liberal Fascism. We are seeing it in full force today.

…It is no doubt the basis of all mass excitement. But Lenin was not himself the master propagandist. How shall the forces of hatred be mobilized? What are the first principles? These are the questions that now belong to a department of political science.

The first principle of all is to fix the gaze of hatred upon one object…

Did they do that to President Bush? Yes, they did. Have they done it to Rush Limbaugh, Hannity, Savage, Levin? 'The right-wing fanaticals.' Lied about by the left-wing fanaticals, because the right-wing fanaticals are not fanatical, they're just trying to tell the truth and to expose the lies. 'That's why they're fanatical. They don't believe our lies.'

…and to make all other objects seem but attributes of that one, for otherwise the force to be mobilized will dissipate itself in many directions.

This was expounded by Hitler in Mein Kampf, where he said, "It is the part of genius of a great leader to make adversaries of different fields appear as always belonging to one category. As soon as the wavering masses find themselves confronting too many enemies objectivity at once steps in and the question is raised whether actually all the others are wrong and their own cause or their own movement right. Therefore a number of different internal enemies must always be regarded as one in such a way that in the opinion of the masses of one's own adherence the war is being waged against one enemy alone. This strengthens the belief in one's own cause and increases one's bitterness against the attackers."

That's their textbook, all because of sin. Remember, Hitler came in legally. What's happening right now with the third phase of this invisible revolution? The same tactics are being used and it's done lawfully. Why do you think Obama must use a teleprompter? So that every word written by attorneys for him is recorded and it's done legally. And I was so happy to see that new modern teleprompter fall, collapse right in front of his face.

Let's come to Micah 1:2: "Hear, all you people!... [Now this is to the ancient forefathers of Israel.] …Hearken, O earth, and all its fullness. And let the Lord GOD be witness against you, even the LORD from His holy temple. For behold, the LORD is coming out of His place, and will come down and tread on the high places of the earth" (vs 2-3). That's the second coming—isn't that true? Yes, indeed!

"And the mountains shall melt under Him, and the valleys shall split open, as wax before the fire, and as waters that are poured down a steep place. All this is for the transgression of Jacob, and for the sins of the house of Israel. What is the transgression of Jacob? Is it not Samaria?... [Today we can just substitute London; Washington, D.C.; Sydney; any capital of a modern descendant of Israel.] …And what are the high places of Judah? Are they not Jerusalem?" (vs 4-5). See, turning the back on God.

Verse 6, this happened. The prophecy of Micah happened just like the prophecies of today are going to happen, so this a type. What happens today is anti-type. "'And I will make Samaria as a heap of ruins in the field, and as planting places for a vineyard; and I will hurl down her stones into the valley, and I will uncover her foundations. And all her graven images shall be smashed to pieces, and all her gifts shall be burned with the fire, and I will destroy all her idols, for she gathered them as the hire of a harlot, and they shall return as the hire of a harlot.' Therefore I will wail and howl; I will go stripped and naked; I will make a wailing like jackals, and mourn like the ostrich, for her wounds are not curable; for it has come to Judah; it has reached to the gate of My people, even to Jerusalem" (vs 6-9).

Hold your place here and come to Isaiah 1, because we're coming back to Micah. Remember, Isaiah and Micah prophesied at the same time. What we're finding out, not only are these prophecies in what is called the Old Testament, for Israel and Judah and the world then, but these are also prophecies of the end-time. How many times does it say, 'in the latter days you shall consider it,' 'in the end-time it shall come to pass.'

Let's pick it up in Isaiah 1:2: "Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth… [So God uses that for a witness. They're still here—right? Yes, indeed!] …for the LORD has spoken, 'I have reared and brought up children, but they have rebelled against Me…. [Are we in rebellion against God?] …The ox knows his owner… [The stupid animal knows where to get fed.] …and the donkey his master's crib; but Israel does not know Me; My people do not understand'" (vs 2-3). You just walk down the street and do any survey; Who's God? I don't know. What's His name? I don't know. Have you heard of the Bible? Yeah. What is it? I don't know.

Now notice: "Ah, sinful nation, a people burdened with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children who deal corruptly! They have forsaken the LORD; they have provoked the Holy One of Israel to anger; they have gone away backward" (v 4). Look at us, look at how bad it is and it's just getting worse—right?

So God says, v 5: "Why should you be stricken any more? You will revolt more and more; the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint. From the sole of the foot even to the top of the head there is no soundness in it; only wounds and bruises and putrefying sores; they have not been closed, nor bound up, nor soothed with ointment" (vs 5-6).

And you can take a look at California. They said, 'Oh, well, we'll get by with IOUs.' The bank said in ten days, 'We're not taking any more IOUs'—sickness: financially/physically. There it is and 'your country will become desolate,' and so forth. So then He pleads with them to make things right, but they don't do it.

Now come back here to Micah 2:1: "Woe to those who plot wickedness and prepare evil on their beds! When the morning is light they practice it because it is in the power of their hand….[I wonder if that's the motto of the bureaucracies.] …And they covet and seize fields, and houses, and take them away. And they oppress a man and his household, even a man and his inheritance. Therefore, thus says the LORD, 'Behold, against this family I am plotting an evil from which you shall not remove your necks; nor shall you go proudly, for it is an evil time'" (vs 1-3).

"'In that day one shall take up a parable against you and mourn a bitter lamentations, saying, "We shall be completely laid waste. He has exchanged the portion of my people. How He has removed it from me! To the apostate He has divided our fields."' Therefore there shall not be for you anyone casting a line by lot in the congregation of the LORD" (vs 4-5). Here's what a lot of people are going to say, 'Oh, you're so hard.' I'm just reading prophecies. 'Well, you don't have to do it that way.'

That's what it is here in v 6: "'Do not prophesy,' they say to those who prophesy. They say, 'Do not prophesy about these things, for we shall not be made ashamed'…. [They're not going to blush or repent.] …O you that are named the house of Jacob, 'Is the Spirit of the LORD limited, are these His doings? Do not My words do good to him who walks uprightly?.... [Showing that even in the midst of trouble, if you're really doing what is right and you're following God, He's going to watch out for you. It doesn't mean you're not going to have difficulties, but He's going to watch out for you.] …Even recently, My people have risen up like an enemy; you strip off a cloak along with an outer robe from those who trustingly pass by you, as those returning from war'" (vs 6-8).

Come to Micah 3:1, this is quite a chapter. "And I said, 'Hear, I pray you, O heads of Jacob and magistrates of the house of Israel, is it not for you to know justice?.... [So here's the rulers. What do we have? An invisible revolution taking place and changing the government to where it is nothing what it was originally conceived to be. Everything's set up for an absolute iron-fisted dictatorship in case of national emergency. No justice! No sense! Now notice, here's why everything is upside down and they won't tell you.] …You who hate the good and love the evil… [That's what it is. They hate the good, they love evil.] …who tear the skin off My people and strip the flesh from their bones'" (vs 1-2). That's what all these taxes are going to do, health care is going to do.
"'Who also eat the flesh of My people, and tear their skin off of them—and break their bones and chop them into pieces, like meat for the pot, and like flesh for the caldron.' Then they shall cry to the LORD, but He will not answer them. He will even hide His face from them at that time, as they have done evil in their doings" (vs 3-4). And personally, I don't think it's going to stop, because they have not repealed abortion. They're still killing the wonderful creation of God in the wombs of their mothers, because their mothers don't want them, and it's a bother to have children. The state says, 'Come right in here.'

"…they have done evil in their doings. Thus says the LORD concerning the prophets who mislead the people, who bite with their teeth and cry, 'Peace!'—and even prepare war against those who do not put something in their mouths: 'Therefore night shall be to you without a vision; and darkness and not divination. And the sun shall go down over the prophets, and the day shall be darkness over them. And the seers shall be ashamed, and the diviners confounded…" (vs 4-7).

That's not only the seers, but think of the whole economic thing. They're telling everybody, 'Oh, get back into the market, we're turning the corner.' You read a little further down, it's going to be five years before we're out of this. What if China and all the other nations get together and say, 'We're not buying any more U.S. debt obligations.' Because, you see, Timothy Geithner, the tax cheat—'Oh, we've got to have him, he's a wonderful man'—he's busy going around the world, first stop to China, next stop to Saudi Arabia, the next stop to Dubai, to assure everyone that our debt obligations to them are secure. Now why would he be doing that, if they're not already threatening to do as I propose, stop buying them.

Because just as it is here, if the invisible revolution and the dictatorship of that, which seems like democracy, cannot borrow then they all lose. If they cannot borrow and print money, we're going to end up like the Weimar Republic and we're going to collapse in hyperinflation, that they couldn't print the money fast enough so they had to have rubber stamps to increase the denominational size of the paper money they had. It got so bad that they had to have the workers in the factories get off at ten, two, and four, to go home and give the money to their wives so they could run down to the market to buy things before the price went up again. The bread got so expensive that you had to have a wheel barrow full of that Weimar paper-fiat money to buy a loaf of bread.

They're going to all be confounded. "…yea, they shall all cover their mouths, for there is no answer from God…. ['God, why are you doing this?' The question is: 'What were you doing when I called?' Micah says:] …But truly I am full of power by the Spirit of the LORD, and of judgment, and of might, to declare to Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin. Hear this, I pray you, you heads of the house of Jacob, and magistrates of the house of Israel, who hate judgment and pervert all equity" (vs 7-9). God is going to make them hear. God is going to take it all away. When God says that you will borrow and you will become the tail, and you will be brought very low, He means exactly what He says, and it will happen! Maybe not this year, maybe not next year, maybe not in three to five years, but it will happen!

"They build up Zion with blood, and Jerusalem with iniquity. Her heads judge for a bribe, and her priests teach for pay, and her prophets divine for silver, yet they will lean on the LORD and say, 'Is not the LORD among us?... ['We're God's people.'] …No evil can come upon us!' Therefore, on account of you, Zion… [because you say this] …on account of you, Zion shall be plowed as a field, and Jerusalem shall become heaps, and the mountain of the temple as high places of the forest" (vs 10-12).

Did that happen? Did God do that to Jerusalem? That's why it's important that you understand history, because if you don't understand history, especially of the Bible and who we are, you don't understand anything. And it's going to come upon you and you won't even know it.

Now here's one of the victim's of hate. This was March 17, 1993, Congressional Record, Vol. 33, pg H-1303. I'm going to do a little more reading here, because you need to understand what has happened. This was by Representative James Traficant, Jr. of Ohio. Now he did not read the whole thing, except the first couple of paragraphs, but all the rest of it he wrote, and it was put in the Congressional record. This is how they do it traditionally, so that they can get it in there. Otherwise, they would be up there speaking one after the other 24-hours a day.

March 17, 1993, Mr. Speaker, we are here now in chapter 11. Members of Congress are official trustees for presiding over the greatest re-organization of any bankrupt entity in the world history.

I want you to add the years on. So what are we here now? Sixteen years later and he's talking about the U.S. government.

We are setting forth hopefully, a blueprint for our future. There are some who say it's a coroner's report that will lead to our demise.

It is an established fact that the United States Federal Government has been dissolved by the Emergency Banking Act, March 9, 1933, Statute 48-1, Public Law 89-719 declared by President Roosevelt, being bankrupt and insolvent….

That's why he called for the gold, because we were bankrupt. Now think about all the debt we have today, and all the financial problems we have today. That is multiplied by about a thousand times from what it was when Roosevelt declared this.

…which was the joint resolution to suspend the gold standard and abrogate the gold clause and that dissolved the sovereign authority of the United States and the official capacities of all United States governmental offices, officers, and departments, and it is further evidence that the United States federal government exists today only in name.

The receivers of the United States bankruptcy are the international bankers, via the United Nations, the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund….

And what have they devised to replace this bankrupt state sixteen years later? The G-20 for a world currency.

All United States offices, officials, and departments are now operating within a de facto status in name only, under Emergency War Powers. With the Constitutional republican form of government now dissolved, the receivers of the bankruptcy have adopted a new form of government for the United States. This new form of government is known as a democracy being established socialist/communist order under a new governor for America.

This act was instituted and established by transferring and/or placing the office of the Secretary of the State to that of the governor of the International Monetary Fund.

Then he quotes the House bill:

The U.S. Secretary of Treasury receives no compensation for representing the United States.

So they got all the gold, devalued the dollar, gave them back paper money, which is a debt instrument. They still said you could collect gold in some oblique manner and it was totally removed later in 1978 by Richard Nixon. Totally off the gold standard. All right, now let's go on. This is very insightful, this is very historical, and you need to understand this, so that when the hammer comes crashing down, you're going to know why.

Gold and silver were such a powerful money during the founding of the United States of America that the founding fathers declared that only gold and silver coins can be "money" in America.

Because they saw the same thing happen in Europe, because the international bankers, the house of Rothschild, and the Vatican, had control of the money in Europe and they did this over and over and over and over again. And when under the auspices of Woodrow Wilson, the Federal Reserve was established in the middle of the night just before the Christmas recession and they didn't even have the votes to do it, if you really research it. The Federal Reserve was born.

Since gold and silver coinage were heavy and inconvenient for a lot of transactions, they were stored in banks and a claim check was issued as a money substitute. People traded their coupons as money, or "currency." Currency is not money, but a money substitute. Redeemable currency must promise to pay a dollar equivalent in gold or silver money. Federal Reserve Notes make no such promises and are not "money."

Now let's all pause here and you take out any denomination of U.S. money and look at it. I want you to look at it, because you are paying debt with a debt instrument. I'm looking at a five-dollar bill. It can be a one-dollar bill, twenty-dollar bill. It reads right across the top—Federal Reserve Note. It says five dollars, but what's the value of five dollars when measured against what? It's an illusion, and only a psychological value as long as people accept it. Now read down a little further, right below the seal of the United States of America. 'This note is legal tender for all debts public and private.'

Brethren, that is not money, and please understand, your checking accounts are even less money. I'll just ask a question: With the economics going down the way they are, will there be another executive order asking for gold again? 'To give us a recovery from our problems.' Of course. Will there be a bank holiday? Some financial experts say yes. Have to verify it yet. All it would take to have a bank holiday would be for all those who buy U.S. government debt-instruments to say, 'No, we're not buying any, and furthermore, we are coming to you to demand payment on the ones that we hold. Furthermore, we will not take another note to replace this note. We want gold and silver.'
If that day comes, which is very likely, there will be a bank holiday. My only question is: Will it be only in America, or will it be worldwide, because the dollars are worldwide? The only question I have in my mind: Is that when they're going to institute the world new monetary system, which will then bring in a world currency, which will then be a prelude to the last step, which will be the mark of the beast? Last week president of Russia held up a gold coin and said, 'We are going to use this for foreign exchange. We don't want to use the dollar.' That was President Medvedev. Of course, his puppet-master Putin put him up to it.

Whenever they ask for the gold, read the fine print. The last time all collectors' coins were exempt from the gold confiscation. All bullion coins and bullion gold were to be turned in. That's how the rich keep their wealth. Remember, in any decree, the wealthy are going to retain their wealth. Understand that. They're going to retain it. Now they may lose some of it. That's the whole scheme of it. How can they bring this about so that the wealthy people in the world do not lose very much money? They're the ones who invest in these collector coins, so you know that's going to be exempt.

A Federal Reserve Note is a debt obligation of the federal United States government, not money. The federal United States government and the U.S. Congress were not, and have never been authorized by the Constitution for the United States of America to issue currency of any kind but only lawful money—gold, and silver coin.

Read just a little more. So Traficant continues, and I tell you what. They railroaded him out of Congress and he was not re-elected and it's probably because of this right here. He continues:

It is essential that we comprehend the distinction between real money and paper money substitute. One cannot get rich by accumulating money substitutes. one can only get deeper into debt. We the people no longer have any "money." Most Americans have not been paid any "money" for a very long time, perhaps not in their entire life.

Now do you comprehend why you feel broke? Now do you understand why you are "bankrupt," along with the rest of the country?

Because if the rest of the world says, 'Nada, no dollars,' the dollar becomes instantly worthless. So to get out of debt and pay off your homes is a good thing to do. They're not going to come and take your home right away, but they can in an emergency confiscate your home and everything you own, but that doesn't mean they're going to do it to everybody all at once, everywhere. Let's read just a little bit more here:

Federal Reserve Notes are unsigned checks without a closed account. Federal Reserve Notes are an inflatable paper system designed to create debt through inflation (devaluation of currency). Whenever there is an increase of the supply of money substitute in the economy without a corresponding increase in the gold and silver backing, inflation occurs.

Just to give you one teeny-weeny bit of example, and I'll end here. Yesterday I went into the local market here, Nob Hill, to buy a simple little cheap item, organic wheat bran. Last time I bought it—79-cents a pound. This time it was a $1.29. So that is about a 70-percent increase on such a little insignificant item. I said, 'Whoa, of course, the government tells us there's no inflation.' But those who know about things say that the dollar today is only worth a couple of pennies from what it was back in the '50s.

We'll continue next time, because there's more. You need to know and understand these things. Some people say, 'Why are you doing this? You're scaring us to death.' Please understand, what I'm speaking may put a little fear in you so you can understand what you need to do to protect yourself if you can, and what's really coming down. Because when the event comes, that's going to scare you a whole lot more than what I'm speaking and saying. But if I do not speak it, God is going to hold me responsible for all of you. The final analysis is this: it generates a desire for you to get closer to God, because these things are coming down.

We'll continue next time. You'll have to listen in for the next one in order to know who writes all of these monstrous bills!
