Chapter 8

** WE HAVE BEEN LIED TO ABOUT OUR ROLES IN THE WORLD ** – the SAGE institutions [IMF, World Bank, WTO, Trilateral Commission, etc.], are there to build solidarity amongst the elites vs. majority control – the rich create poverty; the poor do not create poverty – corruption within the Third World elite; accountability to the SAGE, not to their people; THE ELITE LINKAGES – UNITE FRIENDS, DIVIDE ADVERSARIES is the call of all concerned peoples !! — policy change awareness, ie., fair-trade linkages; electronic democracy [Internet]; SUFFERING MUST BE PUT IN FRONT OF THE EYES OF THE SHAREHOLDERS, ie., “Sweatshop Coffee” [Starbucks vs. fair trade; they finally relented] — an institutional structure to systematically redistribute wealth is growing vs. the 500-year-old violent-transfer-of-wealth systemic [the richest 20% consume 80% of the world’s resources] that exists today [founded/based on violence, oppression, slavery, holocaust] — the Trade-Union Movement is forming alliances at the grass-roots level; a movement from the shop-floor focus to social-unionism [community focus] – THE FINGERS MUST COME TOGETHER INTO A FIST !! – divergent interests, peoples coming together into a mass !! — we must learn to change local law(s) to affect the global economy, ie., responsible investing [e.g. the anti-apartheid movement; 200 corporations pulled out of S. Africa; cities pressured into making selective purchases] CORPORATIONS LIVE IN THE WORSHIP OF MONEY; ** THE LOVE OF MONEY IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL ** — “THUNDER PARTY” PROTESTS, DRUMS/CHANTING, etc. — WE MUST SHAME THESE PEOPLE FOR TAKING AWAY OUR DEMOCRACY; ** SHAME CHANGES LAW(S) !! ** — [based on NPR, Alternative Radio, Kevin Danaher, founder Global Exchange, “Citizen Power”, with additions].

“Sovereign debt” [taxpayers funding the World Bank, IMF] enforcing oppression, extractions of the world’s wealth – IF YOUR VALUE SYSTEM CHANGES NATURE INTO MONEY YOU WILL HAVE ENVIRONMENTAL COLLAPSE !! – WE ARE MAKING AND SHARING PROFITS OFF OF A SYSTEMIC THAT IS STARVING CHILDREN TO DEATH !! — WB and IMF structural adjustment policies in the Third World strengthen capital outflow, but downsize social programs, health care, etc. [FEED THE RICH, NOT THE POOR] – we must protect our health care programs, housing, etc., against the ravages of the market [structural adjustment is here also] – a paradigm shift is taking place [AN IMMUNE RESPONSE]; we must increase this public reaction; a global revolution is taking place [WE WOULD RATHER DIE ON OUR FEET, THAN ON OUR KNEES; Patrick Henry “GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH”] — a global movement that understands that WE CAN SAVE OURSELVES [we are the active agency of God]; solidarity = UNITY of goals, purpose; individualism must be subordinated to the group process !! — (LOVER)/(REVOL)UTIONARY — THE CULT OF POWERLESSNESS IS THE VOICE OF THE OPPRESSOR !! – cynicism [root: like a dog] is retarding the global revolution; our HEART/SPIRIT must take precedence — SAGE-Corporate imposition, imprintation of insecurity, imagined needs [consumerism; acquire, take for yourself] vs. love, compassion, sharing, giving [secure foundation] — [based on NPR, Alternative Radio, Kevin Danaher, founder Global Exchange, “Citizen Power”, with additions]

The “market” [the imposed, instilled, contrived needs] acts as arbiter for business; it is its conscience [MARKET AS BEAST]; within lies the need(s) [real, imagined, created], the desires, the covetousness, the seduction [THE IMPOSED PSYCHOSIS]; THE MARKET IS SHAPED, MOULDED IN SUPPORT OF THE CORPORATE, BY THE CORPORATE – the corporate feed/starve the market, it manufactures and controls both its money and its products [MONEY = GOD, BUSINESS = RELIGION, MARKET = CHURCH, CORPORATE = HIERARCHY; the marketers are evangelists, etc.] – BUSINESS IS A SYSTEM OF BELIEF BASED ON FAITH [CONFIDENCE]; IT IS A FAITH CONSTRUCT !! – the Nation-State is an extension of the corporate [now complete; Americanada Inc.]; the national interest has been privatized; national policies [foreign and domestic] are products of the SAGE-Corporate in the service of business — CHRISTIANITY DOES *NOT* FIGHT BUSINESS, IT WITHDRAWS FROM ANY ASSOCIATION WITH IT AND EMPLOYS ITSELF AS AN ALTERNATIVE; THE COMMUNITY OF GOD [LOVE] !! – resources [the means of accomplishing something (natural, human resources); source of strength or ability within oneself (inner resources); ability to deal promptly and effectively with problems, difficulties (resourcefulness)] are of primary concern and determination [ALL COMES FROM GOD; GOD’S WILL] !! — EVERY CHRISTIAN IS CALLED AND ORDAINED TO SERVICE; no Christian is to be regarded as sub-ordained [a subordinate; inferior or placed below another in rank, power, importance, etc., secondary; controlled; subdued; made obedient] or sub-servient [useful, helpful, or of service, especially in an inferior or subordinate capacity; servility]; CHRISTIANITY IS *NOT* SUBORDINATION NOR SUBSERVIENCY !! – ** Christianity is in a state of subreption ** [deliberate concealment or misrepresentation of facts so as to gain some benefit or advantage; an erroneous inference or conclusion induced by this], whether known or unknown the results are there: the “Ministry” are the “anti-Anointed” !! [late Latin subrepti, subreptin-, from Latin, *theft*, from subreptus, past participle of surripere, subripere, *to take away secretly*; see surreptitious (subrep·titious (-tshs) adj.)] [Rev 3:11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man *take* thy crown.]

Corporate/carnal/secular-Christianity, CHRIST Inc., [of many variants; many blends, the COG Inc.] is easily identified; wherever there is benefit or advantage for one or many, either claimed, or given and accepted, there is VIOLATION OF GOD’S LOVE, there is TAKING, USING GOD’S NAME IN VAIN !! – WE ARE *ALL* CHRISTIANS AND ARE TO REGARD EACH OTHER AS SUCH !! – YOU *CANNOT* TAKE THE NAME OF CHRIST AND BE SUBORDINATE OR SUBSERVIENT TO ANYONE, WITHIN OR WITHOUT THE BODY OF CHRIST !! – yet, we are called to service, to serve in love and wisdom; Christ was not subordinate or subservient, yet He laid down His life for those who would make Him so, and so too must we be willing !! — we are on a first name basis with Jesus Christ our brother, and we should be on a first name basis with all of our brothers and sisters in Christ; we have all taken His name; there is only *one* name; there is no privileged title !! – THERE IS NO TITLE PRIVILEGED OVER THE NAME OF CHRIST EXCEPT OUR FATHER’S !! – yet, OUR FATHER’S NAME(S) ARE OURS ALSO; the Family of God, the Church of God, the Community of God; God’s very Names are indications of our response-abilities, of our ** collective ministration ** !! — to be a Christian is to be ** re-sensitized ** to the suffering in the world, to its causation and solution vs. the implicit and gradual de-sensitization of/by constant and increased exposure [real and fictional (media, movies, etc.)], and by imposed *fear* [real and imagined; MAMMON] – A CHRISTIAN DOES NOT WALK BY, INSTEAD, WE STOP AND ASK WHY !!

Ezekiel 22:25-31
There is a CONSPIRACY [Lexicon H7195] of her prophets in the midst thereof, ** like a roaring lion ravening the prey **; they have devoured souls; they have taken the treasure and precious things; they have made her many widows in the midst thereof. Her priests have violated My law, and have profaned Mine holy things: they have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from My Sabbaths, and I am profaned among them. ** Her princes in the midst thereof are like wolves ravening the prey **, to shed blood, and to destroy souls, ** to get dishonest gain **. And her prophets have daubed them with untempered mortar, seeing vanity, and divining lies unto them, saying, Thus saith the Lord GOD, when the LORD hath not spoken. ** The people of the land have used oppression, and exercised robbery, and have vexed the poor and needy: yea, they have oppressed the stranger wrongfully **. And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge [WE MUST BE THE “HEDGE PRIESTS” AT THIS TIME, THE COMMON MINISTRANTS], and stand in the gap before Me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. Therefore have I poured out Mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of My wrath: ** their own way have I recompensed upon their heads **, saith the Lord GOD [WE ARE/WILL BE TAKEN IN OUR OWN EVIL !!]

God has been replaced by money and emotion; Mammon has been enthroned; Satan has been perfectly “personified” in each and every one of us; CHRIST IS THE ALTERNATIVE PERSONIFICATION — “supply and demand” [manufactured supply to meet a manufactured demand]; WE HAVE *NO RIGHT* TO DEMAND ANYTHING !! – mankind can only progress together; we all have right to the necessities of life and purpose, but when only few can claim that right, and by claim, deny another [one claim (individual/collective) made possible only at the expense and/or sacrifice of another or others], selfish progress becomes regress for many; the few live off of, take from, the many – ** RICHES/LUXURY IN THE MIDST OF POVERTY IS PURE EVIL; OUR DEMAND (to covet) IN THE MIDST OF WANT (need) DENIES GOD !! ** – our “commonwealth” utilized to fulfil the demands of the few, while the wants of the many [the “common”] go unfulfilled and ignored !! — OUR IMPOSED CLAIM(S) OVER EACH OTHER ARE *NOT* RECOGNIZED BY GOD; THEY ARE IN ** VIOLATION OF GOD **, OF HIS CHARACTER [the 10C], AND OF HIS FAMILY !! – all of us within [the COG] and without [at present] the Family of God stand in violation of God, of His love; WE STAND IN VIOLATION OF OURSELVES !! – our “violations” are in effect “crimes against humanity,” crimes against our own human-ity, ** CRIMES AGAINST GOD ** !!

To follow Christ, to walk in wisdom toward those without, as “Christ come in the flesh,” is our Christian-ity [-ity; state, character, condition, or an instance of; our being and doing]; [Colossians 4:5 ** Walk in wisdom ** toward them that are without, redeeming the time (to make wise and sacred use of every opportunity for doing good); … ** because as he is, so are we in this world **] – the perfecting of our love enables those without TO EXPERIENCE GOD WITHOUT BELIEF; OUR CHRISTIANITY MANIFESTS GOD [to make clear or evident; show plainly; reveal; evince; to prove; be evidence of (1 Cor 12:7 …the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man) – a non-judgemental manifestation (not expressing an opinion regarding a person or thing; without bias; objective; ** iniquity purged by mercy and truth **)] – THE BODY OF CHRIST IS THE MANIFESTATION OF GOD [the form in which God manifests Himself (each and every Christian)]; God is seemingly not apparent in the world ** because of our failure ** to manifest His love and wisdom [we determined that God has a “hands-off” policy to those without, and that our “warning work” is primary contact] !! — GOD IS NON-LOCALITY [unbounded], ONE CONSCIOUSNESS AND SO ARE WE [one mind with/as God]; God’s Will is to be revealed to the entire world, by our Christ-ian-ity, the *full* preaching and witness; we are all connected, all must be touched by God !! — marketing God through the broadcast media, or through magazines is *not* touching the world; ** GOD CANNOT BE ADVERTISED, GOD MUST BE LIVED ** – our OPEN and INCLUSIVE community, our Christianity, OUR LIVING TOGETHER, reveals God and His Will !!
