    A little something to consider

    The rise of the anti-christ is written in stone, but that does not mean we do not resist. We have entered that time, this is it, no it will not be a sprint to the end, it is going to be a long drawn out marathon designed to exhaust the resistance. The globalists are the Illuminati and they are preparing the world for their rule and they have taken decades to lay down their foundation. The old powers that held sway have been undermined by wrecking the social structures like the family, which is the basic building block of any society. They have pitted the sexes against each other, They have vilified the history , they have neutered the males and imported the social dregs to finish the job. They have established control over the financial systems through easy loans and expensive dept. They have gained control over all the media outlets of any importance and were all set to install their new World Order. Then along came the upset that is Trump. He is not a member of any secret societies like Skull and Bones , He was not a Rhodes scholar, He was never an insider at the Buildaburg group, He has never been invited to the Bohemian Grove. He has received no indoctrination into the craft. But the greatest thing Trump has done so far is force the globalists to expose themselves and the hand they hold in an effort to resist him. Trump has become to them what the Czar of Russia was after the Napoleonic wars.The bolshevik revolution was conducted in Russia as a punishment for paying off the dept and preventing the take over back then. You can bet they are planning something even worse for the yanks if Trump blocks their plans at the last moment again.

    President Trump

    For what it is worth this is my take on the situation. The office of the POTUS is a secular office, not a religious one so expect the rules of engagement to be secular in nature. The conflict is not between Dems and Republicans, It is in fact between the Globalists and the Nationalists. Once you understand this the rest makes more sense.! Trump is not a politician, he is a mammon wiz kid. He is a nationalist that wants to preserve the USA, not hand it over to the NWO on a silver platter.

    Thriving during National Breakdown.

    PTSD is a luxury only afforded the winning side. Those on the loosing end are just plain out of luck. But getting back on topic, you guys are missing what I am pointing out here. The prepping is for the community not for hiding away for self. The whole attitude to this subject will greatly effect the recovery time of the nation so help me out here and spread this message along a bit.

    Grow vegetables and raise chickens. Rabbits really do bread like rabbits. Snuffing floppsy can be a bit of a problem though.

    One thing to provide for is that everything eventually runs out, think replaceable or reusable. But a manually operated micro paper making plant will help.

    The timing of the 6th seal

    I can take twenty well schooled Bible scholars and ask them to explain the book of Revelation and no two of them will be in full agreement. Now days more and more the denominational doctrine will win out. But the closer we get to the time of the events the more plain the interpretation becomes. This is my take; The seals represent events here on earth and are earthly in nature up to the sixth seal where God starts to intervene into world affairs. The seventh seal is looking at the saints already in the heavens. The rapture marks the end of the time of the Gentiles and the beginning of the last week of Daniel. This plays out during the blowing of the Trumpets. Only the redeemed saints are seen in heaven at the end of the seals. The Nation of Israel is only seen before the throne of the Father at the end of the Trumpets. The bowls of wrath are only pored out on this earth after all of Gods people have been removed.
  7. Thriving during National Breakdown. Any search on the net regarding a SHTF situation has the attitude of you need to protect yours and all others are to be regarded as the enemy to drive away because they want yours. If that advice is followed then it becomes a self fulfilling prophecy with everyone waiting for their turn to die. This mind set needs to be broken now because it will be more destructive than the event that brought about the situation in the first place. If civilization gets knocked back to the start then the best way to handle it is to start again in the same way that everything was successfully built in the first place, but without the control freaks regulating everything to death, Families coming together to help each other, Family groups cooperating together to form stronger communities. Communities trading with each other to their mutual benefit. That is the mind set that has to be implanted now before everything goes to pieces. If you are planning on prepping then consider, “What can you do to make yourself the go to guy for something.” Do you have a well, can you become the guy that rations out safe drinking water on a daily basis. Think installing hand pumps while they are still cheap. Do you have a solar panel, can you be the go to guy for battery charging. Have a horse, get a buggy so you become the taxi guy. Green house, collect seeds for the others and teaching. Got some land, open it up for community gardens. Twenty kids with bicycles and small trailers replace a large truck running between the farmers and the towns for food produce. This is the type of thing you need to be thinking about, instead of protecting yourself from all others you become indispensable to the community. By the time the stored food is running out the first crops should be coming in.

    The timing of the 6th seal

    There are times when we perhaps over think things. The rapture does happen in the sixth seal but before that comes the persecution of the fifth seal. We are starting to see the anti Christian movements grow world wide. We are being killed off all over the place and here in the west we are an affront to every gay out there with the blessings of the state. The world does know that what they are doing is wrong even if the pretend otherwise.! But note what the world says during the events of the sixth seal; Rev 6:15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; Rev 6:16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: Rev 6:17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? The world will know and understand that they are being punished for what they did to Christ and his bride during this time now. But the punishment will not come until after the crime has been committed.

    The Coming Alien Slave Trade

    This is another something I wrote about a decade back, Thought I might as well add it here Who Are The Hosts Of Heaven This is where we start to get into areas that I tend to label as the X Files categories. This is an area that is avoided because of political correctness, theological sterility and it is also an area where the scriptures tend to get ignored and swept under the carpet because many would prefer that they were not there. Now we are told that as it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the last days. Because of this it is a good idea that we take a closer look at the events that transpired here. But to do that we first need to establish who is on the playing field and who are the different parties involved. Genesis chapter 2 1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. 2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. The word host comes from this word; H6635 צבאה צבא tsâbâ' tsebâ'âh tsaw-baw', tseb-aw-aw' From H6633; a mass of persons (or figurative things), especially regularly organized for war (an army); by implication a campaign, literally or figuratively (specifically hardship, worship): - appointed time, (+) army, (+) battle, company, host, service, soldiers, waiting upon, war (-fare). You can look it up, this is the actual word used in the scriptures. Now the question here is the definition of the word host or hosts. This term applies to large groups of living beings that group together in a social order of some sort. The heavens were completed and the earth was completed but what is this host that occupies them? Now think about this. If life is a result of evolution then it would be practical that it only exist on one small planet in the vastness of the universe because the probability of life actually getting started accidentally on its own is so remote it is a statistical impossibility. But if life is the result of special creation then what is the point of creating a huge universe to only place life on one small planet in the middle of nowhere. If God was to create life on only one world then all he would need is just one solar system. To give it room to expand then perhaps one galaxy at the most, but a whole universe consisting of thousands of galaxies just for life on one solitary planet? Common sense should tell you that God would also create life on other worlds so as to utilize the full potential of his creation. Hence God referred to all the hosts of heaven. So lets look at an example of where this word was used in relation to humans to see if we have the correct understanding of it. Exodus chapter 12 40] Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years. [41] And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the LORD went out from the land of Egypt. [42] It is a night to be much observed unto the LORD for bringing them out from the land of Egypt: this is that night of the LORD to be observed of all the children of Israel in their generations. Here the holy nation of Israel that God had reared for himself from the decedents of Abraham are referred to as a host because of their large number, Which can be shown in the following verses out of the book of numbers. [45] So were all those that were numbered of the children of Israel, by the house of their fathers, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war in Israel; [46] Even all they that were numbered were six hundred thousand and three thousand and five hundred and fifty. [47] But the Levites after the tribe of their fathers were not numbered among them. Now here is a few verses of prophecy that are due in the future that demonstrate this point that the word host as applied to the hosts of heaven refers to large groups of beings. Isaiah chapter 24 16 From the uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs, even glory to the righteous. But I said, My leanness, my leanness, woe unto me! the treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously; yea, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously. ( Illuminatie, sometimes referred to as the illuminated ones or shadow governments ) 17 Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are upon thee, O inhabitant of the earth. 18 And it shall come to pass, that he who fleeth from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that cometh up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the earth do shake. 19 The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly. 20 The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again. 21 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth. 22 And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited. 23 Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously. Now the verse of interest is number 21 21 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth. The kings of the earth are men that occupy positions of power and authority over the affairs of men. They are our leadership that have directed the attention of the people away from God and his laws. BUT WHO ARE THE HOST OF THE HIGH ONES. These are not angles or demons or familiar spirits. So who or what are they? Keep in mind that angles do not make deals with men or enter into agreements with them. If they are both gathered together and placed in the same prison together then they must be in collaboration with each other and guilty of the same crime that they committed together. That means that the earths leadership must be entering into agreements with beings that are not of this earth. Hence we have talk about the return of the Nephelium. As was the case in Noah’s day. Now these verses are in the scriptures that have been handed down to us. We can do two things with them. First we can try and explain them away so that we no longer upset the sense of desired reality that we like to hold to or second, we can take it at its face value and accept that this is part of the picture that we are going to have to deal with. It is also interesting to note that the earth has started to wobble in its orbit. This wobble is starting to become quite noticeable and satellites have been set in orbit to monitor it. For the scriptures to mention that the earth starts to wobble until it rocks to and fro like a drunkard is to give a clue as to the time frame when these events are to occur.

    True Prophecy / False Prophecy

    Thank you, The sad part is that it took me years to work it out so as to be able to articulate it. This should be part of the basics taught but now days the subject is one of those never touched.

    True Prophecy / False Prophecy

    True Prophecy / False Prophecy The receiving of a prophecy is by nature a supernatural experience. But a supernatural experience in itself does not mean it is of God. The Buddhists have their prophets who receive prophecies that encourage the path to the Buddhist enlightenment. The Hindus have their prophets that provide the encouragement for the development of ones Karma and soul. The Muslims have their prophets that encourage the Jehad and demolition of the infidels. The witches and wiccans have their prophets that provide access to their spirit guides. The pagans have their high priests and prophets that commune and pass on instructions from their respective god pantheons. Be it Zeus or Jupiter or Thor etc. Then you just have the spirit mediums and fortunetellers that do the same thing with familiar spirits that pose as departed loved ones or whatever. None of the above is inspired by the Holy Spirit , but is the demonic engaged in their normal business. However when it comes to Christianity or Judaism things get a little more complicated. The demonic entities are no longer acting in defence and encouragement of a particular worldly faith but are in an attack stance so as to corrupt and subvert a covenant faith in such a way as to produce an alternative to the true that can be used to deceive the saints and draw them into an alternative faith that looks like the biblically inspired covenant faith but is promoting a different God and a different Jesus. Yes it uses all the right terminology and is steeped in hyper religiosity but does not lead into a real salvation or a real reconciliation with the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The writers of the New Testament had already come into contact with this deception and they gave a name to it, The Spirit of the Antichrist. Basically the same deceiving demons that had come against the Old Covenant and corrupted Judaism and had gained control over the pharisees, where now starting to do the same thing with the way or the early church comprising Christianity of the New Covenant. Just as the priest of the second temple had been so corrupted in their understanding and practices, to the point where Jesus referred to them as complete hypocrites, so the demons were trying to do the same thing with the early church and corrupt their doctrine as well. Well this of course raises the question of what is the difference between the true prophecy and the false prophecy if both are supernatural in origin. Well the answer lies in who it is that is giving the prophetic word. From the Christian perspective the True prophecy comes from the kingdom of God and the false comes from the kingdom of Satan. Demons are quite happy to be very religious and are in fact the deities behind all the worlds Pagan and other alternative religions. But there remains only one real God and that is the one that established the covenant faiths as found in the scriptures as in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. He has sent his only Begotten Son Jesus to redeem us at Calvary and set him up as his King over all of the creation. So the next question is just how do we establish that the prophecies we are receiving are actually coming from the Kingdom of God and not an alternative source. The writers of the New Testament faced this question as well and left us instructions on how to do this. The first is to test the spirit that is giving the prophecy directly as in when the spirit starts to deliver the prophecy, ask the spirit what their confession of faith is. And the other is to judge the fruits produced or intended to be produced by that prophecy as compared to the scriptures themselves. Are they in line with the Great Commission given to the Saints to accomplish while awaiting our Lord Jesus return. Now lets look at the Mechanics behind that instruction. A lot of saints disregard this because they cannot see how asking a deceiving spirit to confess that Jesus has come in the flesh is going to force them to reveal themselves. But the process involved is far simpler than it would appear and this is not the only question available either. A false spirit of prophecy is here to deliver a deception. When you are asking these questions you are placing them in a position where they are being required to affirm and confirm already established biblical truths, the very ones they are required to draw us away from. By asking these questions we catch them between a rock and a hard place as they cannot confirm the truths associated with Christ with out compromising the deceptions they were sent to introduce to us. Has Jesus Come in the flesh Does Jesus now sit at the right hand of God on high. Is God the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob. Is Jesus king of Kings and Lord of Lords Is Jesus the lamb that takes away the sins of the world. Is salvation to be found only in the name of Jesus who shed his blood for us and is now seated at the right hand of God. Is Jesus the Christ The list can be added to yourselves. All you need is known biblical truths that has to be confirmed as true and that can only be affirmed by the spirit that comes from Gods throne of grace. The scriptures instruct us to do this, If the prophetic spirit is from God it will comply very readily. If it is not it will resist in some way or pull away. From experience I have found that quite often when a deceiving spirit is tested in this way it just swears at you or tries to intimidate you. The same principle can be applied to people as well You simply apply the same list of Biblical truths and compare what a false Apostle is teaching or enforcing to what the bible says. I know quite a few that will not affirm that simple list I put together and they will be the first to teach that the spirit of prophecy is not to be tested this way even though the instruction in the scriptures is perfectly clear. And when you go look at their fruit you can see it produces bitter results. A very obvious modern example is the oneness doctrine, How can Jesus be seated at the right hand of God if he is God. Right off the batt you see who has drifted off into the false. And as expected they will be the very ones that discourage the testing of the spirit of prophecy with excuses like it is disrespectful etc. Then it is the same group that will promptly start giving out prophecies of the different incarnations of God such as Melchisedec which is so obviously wrong but it shows which spirit of prophecy they are listening to. The false. And through religiosity they will bully whom they can into following them. Rotten fruit! If there is one thing the church really needs now it is the true prophecies from Gods thrown of Grace being delivered to the saints, not the false. We have been instructed how to test so why are we not doing it. Is it any wonder there is such a falling away and so much Cynicism on display in the body.

    The Coming Alien Slave Trade

    Well the only UFO I have seen is one taking off from the moon through a telescope. Just happened to be looking at the right time. That was a solid craft that reflected light and did not have any form of rocket propulsion. It also had to be huge, far bigger than anything we make just to be seen through my little scope. Yes I am sure there is a lot of corrupt government projects out there but I do not think that is is wise to consider them the only players in town. From what I gather there are plenty of others with some skin in the game and this does seem to be born out from the few bits of scripture that mentions them in passing.

    You are correct. What I would call the spiritual and the natural. But it is still referring to other natural beings, not us. Or then again the celestial could be something that we have not come across yet.

    The Coming Alien Slave Trade

    With the increase of views it may be prudent to provide a bit more scripture to confirm what has already been pointed out. Please consider this section from out of Revelation Rev 12:7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, Rev 12:8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. Rev 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. Rev 12:10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. Rev 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Rev 12:12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. Rev 12:13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. Notice that those rejoicing in verse 10 are professing the Christian confession, but they are in the heavens, not on this earth. But by verse 12 woe unto us as we are the ones that are having to deal with the devil himself. There is no way you can tell me that this kind of thing can be normal, This is satan cast down and manifesting.
  15. When Your World Falls Apart This is mainly written for those in the western world as our circumstances regarding poverty is rather unique due to social and political constraints. Dealing with a topic like this opens the doors to both the practical and spiritual perspective, most now days have little regard for the spiritual aspects so lets look at the practical first and place some spiritual perspective at the end. Bad times come to everyone at some point or other, both on an individual and national scale, this is simply a part of the adventure we call life. Just as we go through bad and hard times, so at certain points we go through good and prosperous times as well. But only as judged by our value system, which here in the west is mammon driven. The greatest obstacles to overcome when our lives hit the skids is not the hardship in itself but rather the battle that goes on in our minds and emotions. We can stop the rain or snow falling on our heads by finding some form of shelter even if its stringing up some plastic sheeting between the trees. We can keep warm simply by making a fire in an old tin bucket, we can feed ourselves by heading for the food bank or soup kitchen. But what really kills us is the emotions of shame at our situations or hate for a system that did this to us or hopelessness at our plight and desperation at our fallen state in society in general. Society does not reward failure to gain wealth in the form of money and reputation and the feelings of vulnerability and being taken advantage of by others actually does far more harm than the situation itself. This is the result of a mammon based value system. In the third world hitting the skids is nothing more than a tempore nuisance while under western values it is like the world is coming to an end for the individual. To make matters worse families do not pull together like they used to but rather pull apart which makes matters even more miserable. I have seen whole families with kids living out the back of a car with no road insurance simply because they will not make their plight known to their other more well to do relations out of shame. Fact is that knowing how to receive is just as important as knowing how to give as well. The other major obstacle to overcome is governmental bureaucracy and a system where money is required on a continues basis just to keep yourself legal. This is a western specific situation. You have to know when to let go of that which is not really important and how to simplify your situation. Pulling it together when on the skids takes just as much planning and forethought as when things are going well. Wallowing in regrets and self pity or bitterness only gets you deeper into the mess. You only have to go through a poverty cycle once to know that when things come right you need to make provision for if things go to pieces again. The status car means nothing if you default on the payments while a paid for second hand small car can get you places and even shelter you in a storm. The latest electronic gadgets are no use if there are monthly bills attached to keep them operating. Credit cards have 19% or more interest rates attached. What were you thinking? So the question is, when we land up in this position just how do we handle it ? Normally when things are going to go to pieces you get some warning, if the job is packing in you know it etc, these things seldom just drop out the blue. Planning for it makes things so much easier. If you are going to end up on the streets then do not wait until the money runs out and you are forced out but get the tents and sleeping bags etc and move out while you still have some cash to keep in pocket. Better to be there with some means for gas etc than be forced out in two months time with no means. If you have kids then get them prepared psychologically. I read mine a bedtime story consisting of the Lord of the Rings. When it was time to go they were all geared up for a grand adventure like the Hobbits. There is nothing worse for a kid than finding out that he has no home anymore just before it happens. Kids happy the wife handles it, kids falling apart, so follows the wife. Never forget that the hardest battle is in the mind, not the circumstances. In nature more prosper in co-operation than in situations where the survival of the fittest rules. Do your networking well ahead of time, families and friends do pull together far better when they can plan ahead rather than when disasters come to their door step out the blue. Couch hopping works if you keep things uncluttered. Remember that even though you may not be able to stop the bad times you can do something to speed up your recovery times. If you are headed for the skids full out then get rid of all the extra costs like fancy cell phone plans etc, you are going to loose them anyway so cut back to the very basic that can last longer. Get rid of the high car payments by returning the car to the dealer and get the cheaper second hand car from the buy and sell that you can pay for outright, It only has to last until you can find another form of income so keep your credit rating intact for later. If you bought items on hire purchase then return them, you won’t be able to keep up the payments anyway and you sure can’t afford to pay for storage. The most important thing that you need to keep an eye on in times like this is your physical health so as to be able to climb out the hole as opportunities come, the rest is all secondary. Never resort to crime in any form, it just makes matters ten times worse. We live in a world where there really is no place left to hide and computers never forget you. Well that covers the secular practical part, now for the spiritual aspects! The Apostle Paul had this to say about the subject. Php 4:11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. Php 4:12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. Php 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. 1Ti 6:6 But godliness with contentment is great gain. 1Ti 6:7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. 1Ti 6:8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. 1Ti 6:9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. 1Ti 6:10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 1Ti 6:11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. In our modern western culture we have a value system based on mammon. That is a system that places value on lots of money and material possessions and reputation and authority over others. The desire instilled in our subconscious is to strive for those things and follow the trends dictated by the media and those around us. Our careers are what define us and provide our sense of worth as well as dictate our power to earn wealth as defined by the world system around us. To remain relevant we need the latest gadgets and toys that allow communications and prestige. We have to play the game with the right people in the right positions to get anywhere considered worth while. From the above passages it is quite obvious that the Apostle Paul had scant regard for being a player in the game. He had in the course of his life had a taste both for success and poverty as defined by his generation and had reached the point where he had little regard for his worldly circumstances but had learned to be content I whatever situation he found himself in at any given time. That contentment to go with the flow came from a value system that was not mammon based. Got food, got clothing, be done with it and get on with his Lords work of spreading the gospel. That was where his priorities lay. Lasting riches were not to be found this side of eternity in his value system. This is not really surprising when you consider what Jesus had to say on the subject! Luk 16:13 No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Luk 16:14 And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these things: and they derided him. Luk 16:15 And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God. There is a very good reason as to why Jesus was so harsh on the pursuit of mammon. To gain mammon in any quantity you of necessity have to deprive from another. The mammon system is set up in such a way that to gain over the competition someone else down the line has to loose so as to provide. With the accumulation of mammon comes power and authority which is inevitably abused so as to further gains and control. This is the exact opposite of what God is looking for as in helping your neighbour and defending the weak. Either you strive to please God or you strive to gain mammon, there is no real compromise where you can do both. In Gods kingdom wealth is measured in skills and abilities to do good for the rest of creation, it is not measured in power to dominate and subdue. This is further demonstrated when Jesus was challenged regarding the payment of Taxes, He asked for a coin and then asked who’s face was inscribed on the coin. When told that it was Caesars mug that was stamped on the coin Jesus replied, then render unto Caesar that which belongs to Caesar and give to God that which belongs to God. In other words the money associated with mammon has nothing to do with God, he makes no claim to it. And rightly so! It is the means with which the kingdom of Satan retains its control over this world. Satan creates a demand for mammon through the laws of the land and then rewards its workers of inequity with it and denies it to those that do not play the game thus making their lives miserable and hard. When Jesus said he came to set the captives free he meant it. The chains that control and bind remain in place because the ignorant consider them something to be desired. A bit of personal testimony here, Wealth is largely a state of mind, During the hard decades I seldom had two coins to rub together and most of what we had we made ourselves. People that had so much more than us would actually envy us and called us liars to our faces when we told them how little we actually did have. For years we lived either homeless or just two weeks away from homeless. But due to other circumstances I had to do a study on demonology during which I discovered that the demons controlling the flow of the worlds mammon were largely under the control of the demons Rimmon and Belphagor. Using my authority in Christ I bound those two demons and the chains under them from bringing this constant poverty on us. If you wish to serve the Lord the kingdom of Satan will come against you and will make life hard for you. The objective being to break you down till you accept playing the game and doing evil as well. When it comes to wealth and poverty there is a spiritual element tied into it. Being poor does not necessarily mean you are doing wrong, It more often than not means you are doing things right but lack the knowledge to over come that which is coming against you . Stand fast in your faith and do not stop doing good, we all reap what we sow. If you stand fast and do not cease from doing good you will reap the rewards of righteousness. Hos 10:12 Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you. Hos 10:13 Ye have plowed wickedness, ye have reaped iniquity; ye have eaten the fruit of lies: because thou didst trust in thy way, in the multitude of thy mighty men. But if the evil in the nation starts to overwhelm the nation the Lord does step in and the mammon of the nation does get removed. Satan may have the nations in his chains but only as far as God will allow.
