Two Masters Update Feb. 12th, 2012


     I don’t know if the last decade will ever be completely behind me. There are parts of it that were necessary to change both my understanding, and direction. That, I can accept. The things that I can not excuse, remain. Learning from those experiences does not add value to the specific activities. Learning does bring me principled conviction.  Today, I can describe that resolve. Yesterday, I couldn’t.

The trap in life is that we can’t see the end of things. Everything looks like a good idea. If I knew in 2002, what I know today, I know that I would have made different decisions. The best I can say is that I was ignorant. I may have been reasonably functional in a commercial sense, but I had no idea what that would cost me. In the short term, it cost me the life I had known. In the long run, I know who my Master is. As far as I’m concerned, I won the most important prize in life.

The best place to start is the beginning. In 2002, I didn’t have the skills that are the core of my activity, today. I didn’t have the spark that would drive those tools in searching for answers to the right questions. I certainly couldn’t do the things I do, today. Yet, I do have regrets. They do change the way that I see things.

Exo 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

Exo 20:9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

Exo 20:10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

Exo 20:11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

Mat 21:10 And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this?

Mat 21:11 And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.

Mat 21:12 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves,

Mat 21:13 And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.

My deepest regret is the commercial activity I did, in the name and support of ministry, on Shabbat. In the process of that experience, I had the support and acclaim from my friends and peers. Yet, I still had no peace. Every time I set up a merchandise table for a guest speaker, I couldn’t shake the haunting thought that I was setting up tables that Yeshua would have overturned. I eventually ceased that activity. Eventually, commercial conflicts arose that put me out, entirely. It was a simple choice. It was either stay on the right side of wrong, or leave. In the end, I walked away from the life I knew. I left people behind me because I could not be an extension of their commercial identity. I do appreciate that I learned valuable lessons.

I did learn very important lessons. I saw the commercial side of ministry, from the logistics side. I know the expectations, the marketing and promotion and the duplicity that manipulates public perception. I know the difference between a ministry and a Multi Level Marketing organization. I’ve seen many instances of people cultivating a sale, under the pretense of ministry. I watched who people in ministry spent the most time talking with, before a service started. That told me that the targeted person would buy something before the sun set, on the Sabbath.  I’ve seen all of the rationalizations about buying and selling on the Sabbath.

There is no justification for delivering products that are for sale on the other six days of the week. The technical manipulation of payment options and breaking up the process among multiple people doesn’t change the fact that goods and money changed hands on the Sabbath. Even though I ceased my participation in that activity, it still weighs on me. People say that I don’t seem to care about anything and that I should take better care of myself. It isn’t that I don’t care. This is just the way that sackcloth and ashes look, on me. I would rather be a common beggar than dwell in comfort, in the house of suits and ties.

 Two Masters

     People believe that common ground exists, on which all conflict can be resolved. This is delusion. Believing in two contradictory statements as truth is the definition of madness.

                    No man 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.” – Luke 16:13  KJV

     This is why it is impossible for a genuine, born again child of God to be a United States citizen. It is human nature to play both ends against the middle. Human shortsightedness fails to see the consequences of duplicity and double mindedness. First, people lie to themselves. They are then trapped into living that lie to keep the peace with the crowd. U. S. citizens rejected God’s provision in favor of the deal that the corporation in Washington, D. C. has behind Door #2. We shall see how that covenant with Death comes out.

     Let your “yea” be yea, and your “nay” be nay. Any compromise between the two is hypocrisy.

                                  “Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoreth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men” – Matt. 15: 7 – 9,  KJV

     It is obvious that actual practice in the United States exposes the hypocrisy of the “one nation, under God” concept. The Constitution being as irrelevant as it has become by the duplicity and subterfuge of human nature, there is one little detail that is important. There is no Constitutional requirement for a loyalty oath to the Federal corporation. That being said, we can now examine the nature of oaths and the way they come out in actual practice, in the United States.

     The standard of authority is measured by obedience to the sanctioning Sovereign, the master of the land and the people. This is where the United States committed a fatal error, a great transgression. The important questions multiply with each departure from the precepts that are cited in support of Government authority. One Nation, under God? If so, is this a Nation and Country, identified by free inhabitants on land, lawfully described by recorded metes and bounds, of a political unity, by agreement? It isn’t that way, in the modern corporation, United States. Continuing the hypocrisy, if under Divine Providence, which god does this people worship? Is it education, worshiped by academia as it’s god? Is it the corporate structure, with it’s protocols of service and worship? I would be remiss if I didn’t ask if the social structure usurps the authority and position of the God of Creation. It obviously does, teaching for doctrines, the commandments of men.

     Without getting bogged down in personalities and incidents, there are occasions when we get a glimpse into the inner workings of the corporate structure. The scandals in history expose the obvious depravity in the corporate structure. We have had government by racketeering, extortion, assassination, fraud, influence peddling, graft, perjury and too many other transgressions to list. Could it be that the United States is claiming allegiance to the wrong god?

      There was supposed to be one set of rules, for everybody. Along the way, something got lost in the translation ………

The 6,000 year old struggle for world domination continues.

“And they come into Jerusalem: And Jesus went into the temple,

and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple,

and overturned the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats 0f them that sold doves:
And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel
through the temple. And he taught, saying unto them,
Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the
house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.”

     Just as in that day, as the temple of God in Jerusalem was the central point of standards for society in Israel, so too we were supposed to have a structure that maintained standards in our society. By failure to carry out those duties, the United States Treasury has now become the corrupt temple of the Federal Reserve private bank. No longer is the U. S. Treasury the guardian of honest weights and measures. Those who worship in the house of the Federal Reserve are about to see their tables overturned as they are cast out, into the street.

     As the world has seen many times before, the Earth is the Lord’s, and all things contained, therein. The Creator of all things is the final authority in the affairs of men. Rebellion and corruption don’t last very long, and never have. 

       In the modern world, “the way it is” just keeps right on going, without skipping a beat. Eliminating competition is the United States Way.

“Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart an ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost;
as your fathers did, so do ye. Which of the prophets have not your fathers

persecuted? and they have slain them which shewed before of the coming of the Just One;
of whom ye have been now the betrayers and murderers;” - Acts 7:51 ,52 KJV

     We should see the pattern, here. Every corporate structure develops a mechanism to eliminate opposition. The corporate structure of the world is no different in motive and political agenda than it was, 2,000 years ago. For that matter, open hatred and warfare against the Creator has continued for 6,000 years. The pattern is always the same. Kill the messenger, spin the news, protect markets and corporate territories.

Just as in the Book of Acts, we now see a more technologically advanced form of character assassination than in those days, but it’s still trial by public opinion and ostracism. The old, tried and true methods of blacklisting and smear campaigns continue, the pace accelerated by instant communication.  It is a constant in human history that the struggle for control of material wealth results in actions taken that involve spiritual consequences that go unmentioned in public.In the context of this passage, we find one who has a claim to righteousness according to the public perception of the Law,  standing in inaction with the cloaks of them who are busy committing murder, at his feet.  Saul of Tarsis was a learned man, studied and approved by his peers and mentors in the Law. We have enough difficulty dealing with conscience, in hindsight. That is in the context of our public ignorance of the Law. Can you imagine the pressure involved in making judgment in the sudden violence of a public stoning? We should be grateful that we haven’t literally experienced that condition.

In today’s terms, we should still experience the discomfort and anxiety of such a moment. Those in positions of public trust commit all manner of depravity, in our names and by our legal authority. Yet, we continue in corporate trust with such activity. None of the standards of righteous conduct are met in the modern world. How shall we escape certain judgment? As long as present public conduct continues, the world is a vehicle accelerating down the wall of the pit of Hell. We should want to get off that track to destruction and get as far from it as we can. For those who haven’t forsaken the way of the world and called upon the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, asking for remission of sins, now would be a good time. The day is coming for Eternal destiny to be decided.  That time is an individual decision. Late is the same as never. Whatever you decide, you will remember this, 1,000 years from now

     Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and everyone has a free choice. To make informed decisions, it helps to know who you are dealing with.

“And it came to pass at the time of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near,
and said, Lord God of Abraham, Isaac and of Israel, let it be known this day that thou art God in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I have done all these things at thy word.
Hear me, O Lord, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the Lord God, and that thou hast turned their heart back again. Then the fire of the Lord fell and consumed the burnt-sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench. And when the people saw it, they fell on their faces; and they said, the Lord he is the God; the Lord he is the God.”
I Kings 18:36 – 39

     This is what final authority looks like, in action. In Elijah’s day, when people went their own way and followed after other gods, judgment very often was direct and sudden. In our day, we see many examples of rebellion and defiance in current events. Today, the issues are as marked and polarized as any confrontation in antiquity. Many times we have seen civilizations come to a bad end because corruption and iniquity festered until societies came apart at the seams. We have been warned repeatedly of the consequences of actions that have led to the present condition of departure from the Biblical principles that safeguarded America. A confrontation that only Divine intervention can resolve is coming. We must choose this day, whom we will serve.

    And all God’s people said, “AMEN!”

    • Unfortunately, people are still comfortable in Babylon. They’re playing the debt game, as hard as they can go. I’m still not over somebody who is over $! million in debt, putting me out in the street, with nowhere to go, in Nov. 2008. They think they own something. Their self – righteous lifestyle comes from all of the debt they can pile up.

    God bless you George. That is what SHOULD be being preached from the pulpits in America instead of “Your Best Life Now “. So how do you survive without operating in the system?

    • It’s hard, gideon. When I was living out doors, I would se3arch around for that fancy paper or some of those shiny metal “rocks” that people like, so much. They gave me real stuff for it. Otherwise, I try to trade work for my necessities. Then, I just write about it.
