Collateral Damage Of Profiting From & Monetizing Home!

If you are not the carpenter, roofer, electrician or plumber, or any other individual who actually build homes with your hands, you are what is accurately referred to as an economic parasite; a monetary predator; a usury extractor; a hands-in-the-pie taker; a build-nothing do-nothing grow-nothing make-nothing; give me profit because I exist; I am therefore I am owed; a scammer; or in summary, it is highly unethical to take free monies from the presence of homes. Takerism has been normalized, but then, so has adultery (Matt 5:27-29,30-32).
In the end time scenario of normalization, wherein evil is called good, and good is called evil (Isa 5:20-21,22-24), capitalism, usury and profiteering is considered by the masses, destined for eternal darkness, as not only morally acceptable, but actually good; ethical. Openly evil men are made leaders and considered good men by the populous religionists. And the same was true in the 1st Century.
Additionally, all the monies collected for, assigned to, or in any other way, proposed because of and for, the homeless, is a sum of money, far greater than what it would take, on the street-level, to end homelessness. Put another way, there is more monies made because of homelessness, than would be needed to end it! And those numbers are staggering.
In fact, what was spent because there are homeless people, meaning, all the direct dollars, plus all the pointless salary troughs, and the real estate, and so on, that is spent because there are homeless people, is far more than enough to actually end homelessness. That is why it is called the Homeless Industry!

How To End Homelessness ~ And Why It Won't Happen!

The serving of the homeless is more important than the homeless being served! A guesstimate is this; that well over 80% of all those dollars, do not go directly to homeless people: Those dollars go into the pockets of people who are not homeless; those who service (or are in some other way a financial benefactor of) the Homeless Industry.
The sheer numbers of people trying to get their cut of the Homeless Industry flow of monies is enormous; the capitalistic jump into the Industry pool of monies, with their own versions of rescuer savior. But those who are actually without shelter nightly, rarely make any physical contact with any of these hands-in-the-pie taker capitalists.
The demographics of those who fall under the official term homeless varies widely, depending upon where and when. In a wealthy County (such as Orange County, CA where I once lived), those serviced are different than those in a poor County; different again if the shelter is near a major prison; different yet again based upon the economy, public transportation options, and so on. This is why no one has yet to accurately quantify these demographics.
But there are two distinct groupings of homeless people; those who are temporarily (or circumstantially) homeless, versus those who are chronically homeless. But then, there are also those who want to be homeless; they see being free from the financial weight of the Real Estate Industry as a freedom. Since my experience was in adult men's shelters in the Midwest during the Great Recession, my perspective is limited to that experience. And the times they are a-changin!
I was not injecting the results of a long-term HUD-financed empirical research study. But for those interested in true statistical data, see the Annual Homeless Assessment Report to Congress. If you are homeless, or threatened by the possibility of homelessness, please contact HUD's Homeless Assistance Programs, and then be patient, diligent, and flexible. See: Lessons from Finland: Helping Homeless People Starts with Giving Them Homes.

The Homeless Need Homes!

To appease the guilt-shame-condemnation (Rom 8:1-4,5-9) of creating or promoting or enabling a society of capitalistic (carnal, primal, predatory, parasitic) competitivism, wherein there are winners and losers, those who have succeeded at capitalism (well, some anyway), feel traces of the guilt-shame-condemnation that the Holy Spirit in the world, imparts upon everyone, as that Spirit attempts to pull people down from their own pedestals (John 16), drawing them in the direction of (and then hopefully under) the Messianic Cross.
Unfortunately, even major tragedies often do not move them: Instead, they react steadfastly in pride-centric ways and mentalities that keep them perched proudly on their pedestal, whenever a trial strikes them. They enter the victim-victor social productions, so popularized in the modern West. As an attempt to subdue the influence of guilt-shame-condemnation, some react angrily at those whom they believe causes their internal turmoil; the losers; the poor; the homeless; the 'not-like-them' people (John 17).
But that is the curse of the class system (itself) because it pits us against one another over something that is not cultural or genetic or even human really. Satan's crowning glory on earth is social stratification, and its subsequent political and military constructs, which in turn created a mostly secularized world.
But still others go into pretend-care mode; they attend church or donate or even create charitable organizations to serve some cause. In the case of the homeless, they do food, clothing and blanket drives, but never do they just build shelter. Most homeless people find food and clothing everywhere all the time; what they do not have are homes; hence the word!
The guilt-shame-condemnation that results from living a perpetual antiChrist life/lifestyle -- which is only possible via time-for-money sedentary acquisition, capitalism or capitalization, consumerism and general material excess -- must be confronted on more than one front; the belief in self-superiority is a must when a person makes nothing; predators and parasites who occupy spacetime, living off the sweat labors of others.
These are the taker class, who are now the majority of the human race, who make nothing worth having; e.g. housing, food and so on. They simply trade time for money or make money from money (the heinous sin of usury) and then make others do all the labor and the heavy lifting and the dangerous work: they are slavers! And they are all destined for darkness.
They must exploit the satan created, corrupted mammon (economic) systems to obtain those needed resources from the labor class; these are the sedentary slavers. This explains why these usury profiteers so hate the working class as well. The disdain is but the outward expression of the inner turmoil, caused by the Holy Spirit in the world, attempting to gain the throne in their personal world (e.g. Suffering Saul).
A capitalist plutocracy therefore, must have a police state (and a national military) in order to impose the will of the wealth-class. Everything revolves around money; mammon is their god, and thus their compass; that's why the rich can commit crimes and get away with it, because there cannot be a true justice system in a money-centric society: Hence, we (instead) have a Judicial Industry in the USA. Since humans can only be valued in dollar increments, those with little or no dollars are thus worthless, even though they're humans.
To the wealth-class, there is no such thing as human dignity apart from one's dollar worth. Money is the lord of the masses. And those who cannot (or even will not) earn enough money to take care of themselves, are considered by many wealthy/powerful people as Life unworthy of life: Or silently say: 'I got mine so screw you!' Or in summary: neighbor hating (Mark 12:30-31).
The very idea of doing these shakedowns, via the police force, is that when the homeless retaliate (and eventually they will), they'll have a justified opportunity to beat them, assault them, humiliate them, or criminalize and jail them, as more bodies for the profit-driven PIC, paid for by tax dollars. Bum problem solved! Out of sight out of mind!

The Moral Depravity of Westernization!

Now, the suit-n-tie, build-nothing, do-nothing, sedentary, capitalistic monetizers, can live in their idealized, fictional world where everything and everyone is clean and pretty, homed and happy. They can continue to make big bucks producing nothing. The homeless are analogous to the indigenous Americans, in that they are a constant physical reminder of the human costs of profiteer economics; hence, the disdain. YHVH values one human life far above the value of the entire planet, but the Godless cannot comprehend this. They play god by creating their our valuation systems, and today it's in the increments of the USD.
It is clear (and has been for many decades now) that life in the capitalist plutocracy is quickly becoming a Corporatocracy. It is not as simple as just getting a job and buying a home. When homes themselves are a venue for labor-less gain or usury (profit protected by the money-serving Law lords), the price of home will always be too high for most. If you are a rich man, being a landlord gives you guaranteed profit and power; the existence of credit reporting agencies, themselves, bear witness to this fact. And for the wealth-monger, wealth is meaningless if you cannot be superior to others.
Even the (currently) employed can easily look upon the homeless as lazy (unemployed) or just a bunch of addicts, or any other way they like; that is, until it's them suffering. The police are employees; to think of them as the defenders of rights (or righteousness) is naive, and articles abound, posting the evidence (piled upon ever more evidence over time) of what's really happening in the USA, in spite of all the rhetoric about human rights or civil liberties.
I have said (and since 1975) that a rich man could do as he pleases, on any square mile of Earth, at any time. There is no landmass on Earth that has any more or less freedom than any other, because freedom is not about where you are at, but about who you are, which is (for centuries now) defined by the quantity of hoarded money. It is easy to say and live by: 'I got mine so screw you!' Until it is you or someone you care about that's suffering.
Modern homelessness is analogous to Serfdom of feudal Europe; it is that same theme of the lord over the poor; the antiChrist mentality and lifestyle, a major component of which, includes the openly accepted bigotry of social class. There really is no problem with not owning or living in a box; if we look at this from a broader perspective, most of the human race was 'homeless'. The true problem is with those who believe they deserve to own the creation; the landlords, or landlordism!
The root of this problem, and a host of others that stem from it, is the owning of land. Indeed, this trail of blood is US history in a nutshell. To add insult to this grievous injury, those who have thoughtlessly followed in this path of real estate, actually look down upon the homeless, and actually believe that they need to fix that. They have redressed homelessness to that of a social problem rather than a way of life; this has its roots in guilt.
Because the majority of humans are enculturated drones and loveless beings, they cannot fathom that anyone would not want to live upon this planet as they do. This is more about superiority and the god-complex than it is about social justice; it is also the exact reason why ending homelessness will not happen. Of course, psychology 101 teaches us that guilt drives humans to anger (guilt and anger always share the same space in the human psyche), and anger manifests by striking out at any symbols that expose the roots of the guilt.
Therefore, when people see other people living differently than they do, they strike at them (or oppose them quietly) with the exact same pathology as we (elders) witnessed in the 1960s with whites striking out angrily at blacks simply because of their skin color. In like manner, the opposing view is Melanin theory which postulates that a higher melanin count is superior.

The Extreme Mental Illness Of Money Hoarding!

Hate is hate; the root of it irrelevant for this lesson. The goal of hate-mongers will never change; they will always find the enemies they need to justify; otherwise, all that remains in them is self-loathing, which leads to slow (or sudden) suicide for many. To pity a man for living 'real-estate-free' is absurd to the bulk of all humanity past; however, because it has been normalized over time by enculturation, and elevated via ethnocentrism, most modern people accept the premise and participate (either) in the piteousness, or the outright hatred, of those living or looking differently than they do, socially, culturally or economically: This is the sum definition of all bigotry.
I get questions, often from youth, when I talk about the open and casual racial bigotry in the USA during the 1950s and 60s, for it is puzzling for some young people today, to fathom that such racial bigotry was so widespread and so unabashed, but I remind them that this is a time/based perspective; that bigotry is always with us, and has never attenuated, and in fact, there are more bigots on Earth today than ever before: One must only look, but look anew with Spiritual eyes to see and with ears to hear (Matt 13:10-13,14-17).
Since the capitalistic, bibles-and-bullets Europeans came to the Americas for gold and queen, their genocide of the Americans (Native) was almost a complete extinction, just as it was with the buffalo, the sequoias, and other precious creations of YHVH that humans were commissioned to steward (Gen 1:26-28). The seemingly demonic, salivating lust to own and subjugate, is pandemic; that disease is now being measured by the scientific community today, from a global perspective.
Most of the North American continent has been lorded by capitalist plutocrats, and of course as always, those with mental illnesses will often end up outside of mainstream society; they will be homeless. Thus, the simpleton mind must automatically associate homelessness with mental illness; this mentality is due to the lack of perspective on the matter, and they do not want a better one. It's that causation versus correlation conundrum which most exploit in the self-justification process.
Most socially exposed mental illnesses have causes, and not every dis-ease has a hereditary (genetic) component. Circumstances of life, which render us humans powerless, can (and often does) drive humans to madness on some level; human history is ripe with such cases. Everyone who cannot or will not, play the economic games of the consumerist capitalists, are thus pushed to the margins of society, and many of them who survive and have been rejected by their families, end up at homeless shelters, and often, the workers of those shelters believe that the problem is unemployment, addiction, or mental illness.
They believe that these symptoms are the cause, when oftentimes, they are the result of a much larger problem, and though a shelter seems at best, a stopgap, it is really an enabler for the takers to continue in their barrage over the poor and the weak. JJ perhaps said it best: 'Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose!' Materialism and ownerism and consumerism and landlordism are the real diseases. In a predatory society, some must be the food.
People in the Westernized world are not homeless because they are mentally ill, they are mentally ill because they cannot compete as Capitalists (or surrender the effort). The simpletons, and especially those among the educated, indoctrinated and credentialed, see mature-onset mental illness, the only way they can; through the lens of Capitalism and calculated via USD. Remember, all capitalists are first and foremost, business men and women; what they do as a business is less important than the bottom line, for which it stands.
A doctor is a businessman who happens to get his mammon from that service. A profiteer is merely a professional cut-taker; they do not care how they get the mammon into their pockets (they'd stomp babies if they got wealth, fame and glory for it, instead of jail). Nonetheless, many humans cannot live as economic predators, and those who do, cannot understand why not.
But in the culture of Capitalism, you must comply: Hence, the mental illness. And the hunger-lust for ever-more, is another more socially acceptable mental illness. But they are all the end-result of Spiritual vacuity and Lovelessness, which always attenuates from indifference to psychopathy. Addiction itself is a response to life's stresses, and though you or I may have managed this life without being addicted to drugs or drink, others are not so fortunate.
There is a genetic propensity to many addictions, making it more likely to occur and less likely to be overcome. My biological father was an alcoholic and a tobacco addict, and so I intentionally avoided them both, for that reason alone. But he was also addicted to stress and drama; he also was not a disciple of Messiah Yeshua. The compilation of those lifestyle choices was his undoing and subsequent early death.
Addiction is why the homeless brave urban centers rather than just living in a forest alone; that is what I would do if I were homeless. But urban centers are filled with people who will give monies to the pitied homeless, wherein they can buy the (legal or illegal) products of their addictions, none of which are availed in the natural world.

The Messiah Culture!

Therefore, this is the question here: How many members of the Body of Messiah (globally) are homeless? Of course, the answer is zero; none. Now, how many homeless Christians are there? Answer? Tens of thousands. You see the homeless shelters, and the faith-based sides of the homelessness industry in general, are social manifestations of works-righteousness: Godless Religion.
The Body of Messiah are One; we are family. No parent with a gram of Love residual attachment emotions, would allow their child to live homeless. The Body of Messiah, are the Body of Messiah, exactly because there are none homeless. For example, how many homeless Amish are there? Yep: None! Homelessness, and other fruits of poverty, are but symptoms of Lovelessness, which is Godlessness, which is faithlessness.
The shelters must exist because people will not share their homes. One estimate was that there's 1700 times more space available in already constructed homes, which could end homelessness today. To see this clearly, we must first rewind back in time a little. From the time that the Native Americans were pushed aside, the Capitalist dominator's have been paving over the creation of YHVH with a relentless fervor.
In the name of god and manifest destiny, the Godless-religious White, European colonizing conquers, patrolled this continent (and indeed, Earth) with eyes and hearts filled with the gold and silver that this Earth provides: The only thing standing in their way was the indigenous. Therefore, they mastered the militant methodology of threaten and then subdue the response to the threat. This made the (Takers) taking appear righteous; heroic even. This we know: History is written by the victor!
The idea of militantism is that of forging heroes who basically take the lives of those just trying to protect themselves. This has been the pattern of the militant since day one. The westernized capitalist conquerors (the Godless-religious), with a bible in one hand and a gun in the other, went about pushing aside those who lived on this continent for thousands of years.
This conquering and controlling mentality (this pathology) is the end-consequence of Spiritual depravity over dozens of generations. This prophetic backslide into the pits of darkness, is given some semblance of light, with the bible and the ideals of Godliness and righteousness. The fruit is all over the tree for all to see. 'We are what we do, and no more!'
Therefore, self-justification aside, the Godless-religious took this grand and unique natural creation of YHVH, and turned it into a veritable parking lot filled with man-centric machines and all the billowing towers of victory over Elohim's created natural world. And who gets dismissed in this carnage? The simple-living people!
The simple-living people are all the indigenous that lived upon the Americas pre-colonization; all the homeless everywhere; any/all who (in modern times) do not feel lead to partake in the western production of consumer madness; to live under the social, cultural, or economic paradigms of the westernized-monetized-christianized-industrialized; the capitalistic; the mêlée of sin and deprivation and competitivism and adversarialism; the planet-trashing and nature-raping; trapped in the wanton monetization of all Creation, and converting everything into dollar increments.
To the Mammonite Capitalist dominator's, you must comply, or you will be looked upon as a social reject; a loser; as a needy person who is damaged for not fitting in, and then you'll be disrespected. Welcome to the life of the marginalized; welcome to the camp of rejection; but here is also where you will find the disciples of Messiah Yeshua (not the westernized-monetized-christianized-industrialized).
Today, those who provide the food, the housing and shelter, and the other more laborious tasks, are looked upon as unskilled; at the bottom of the talent pool. Like myself, Messiah Yeshua was a Tekton; a construction worker, and the other disciples were fishermen, farmers, tent makers, and textile workers. They all grew food in gardens, had sheep and goats, and they hunted and fished.
The reason that our Lord was not a Pharisee, a King, a Capitalist, a President, or an Executive, was (and still is) paramount. The reason that Messiah Yeshua taught against mammon and coinage, is because He knew what that silver and gold would represent, in the (current and future) exploitation of humanity.
Therefore, the minorities suffer at the hands of the Mammonites, as they take and take, until there's nothing of Elohim's creation left for Elohim's creation. In other words, all of North America is divided, titled and into the dominant hands of the Godless (including the Godless-religious), and the Native American Reservations are either in a desert, or become casinos (horrifying). The National Parks are for all to see, but none to use.
Therefore, the homeless are homeless, exactly because they have no place to go within the net and the control of the control-freaks: All land is owned by a human lord; this is the opposite of Elohim's directives, but it also explains how prophecy will manifest; it explains why homelessness will never end; it explains why Intentional Communities with secular themes will not work long-term either.
Until everyone in a community, a town or a city, are willing to labor for their own needs, the need to exploit and belittle the farm workers, construction workers and others who live as Messiah Yeshua (and His Disciples and Apostles) becomes their way of justifying their Godless lifestyles.
It also leads into the exploitation of the natural world; of other humans; of national borders (which then drive the pathologies of patriotism and racism), and eventually to landlordism. The mammon system, which is a contradiction to Elohim's prime directives for how we are to live upon Earth, have been violated for so long, that the end-times become ever clearer. Transition is needed, but will not likely occur; in fact there is a near-zero percent chance.
Messiah Yeshua served the poor, the homeless, the diseased, the destitute and the broken. But we must understand that those people got that way because they existed in an unjust culture, which was lorded over by mammon-dependent warmongers who created a social system contrary to Elohim's design and directives. It was always the Godless/Loveless that caused all human suffering, because they are cold, dark and Loveless, and as such, crave to be superior to other humans. This pathology is measurable, and is, to this day, witnessed in the poor among us.
Humans are not herd animals. You cannot treat them all the same, like they do in military boot-camp or in prison: These are undignified. But the fact is, the Godless (including the Godless-religious) have no sense of personal dignity or the ability to honor another human being, because they do not honor themselves. They do not have a concept of what honor, dignity and respect really means.
If others are not like they are; or think like they think; or perceive the world like they do; they are defective humans, and need to be dominated, controlled and reformed to their own image. We witness this as (human) History: Think Colonialism! Typically, the deep-residing (often unrecognized) guilt that comes from living above other humans is what creates the disrespect; the disgust; the justified abuse.

Homelessness: When You're Kicked Out Of Society!

This pathology is why humans like to dominate and control other humans. But Messiah Yeshua said to do unto others as we would do unto ourselves; to treat others as we would want to be treated (the golden rule). Without Love dominating and controlling the inner man, that man, no matter how 'nice' he may be outwardly, is dead internally, and as such, is subject to all evil.
This is why the homeless are treated like second-class; like a low-life, and indeed, many of them are products of self-abuse and a life of indifference: They too, have lived Godless lives, and are the unlucky that have not wisely prepared for their own economic futures, or, have lost it all to another. It is these, the poor, that Messiah Yeshua attended.
In cultures that favor the female (see the Law lords), many men have lost everything to the one they thought they'd retire with, and so, she has the home, the kids, half his resources, and he has the side of a dumpster: Indeed, most homeless people are men. Therefore, most homeless shelters are dangerous and undignified, and not a welcome place for those who are just homeless. The shelters have been reduced to ex-con prisons and/or mental wards.
Therefore, for those who have simply lost/failed economically, being surrounded by the mentally ill and the criminal mind, is not a conducive place for change. Shelter life ends up taking the economically desperate, into another world altogether. Therefore, those who are employed by homelessness do not live as those they 'serve'. Why? Because they do not live by the golden rule, they are ruled by the gold. The Homeless Industry gives these employees a stable job, and the irony is that many in the shelter are there because they (themselves) do not have a stable job.
The solution is obvious, but it cannot happen within a (Capitalist) system wherein, one human takes their resources from another human. This explains why there are zero homeless Amish people; why there are zero unemployed Amish people; why there are zero hungry Amish people. The Elect of YHVH are One.
Conversely, the Godless-religious are not Saved (not Transformed) and therefore, they think-live like the rest of the Godless world: They see the resources they have as their own, and then subtly lord those resources over others. But the Elect of YHVH see the homeless, and all the poor, as the Lord Himself, and as such, treat them better than ourselves. Elohim has allowed this imbalance of resources intentionally; the poor are (metaphorical) implants, placed here to run the test; Messiah Yeshua laid out the test (metaphorically), along with its inevitable conclusion:
But when the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He shall sit on the throne of His glory. And all nations shall be gathered before Him, and He shall separate them from one another, as a shepherd divides the sheep from the goats. Indeed, He shall set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats off the left. Then the King shall say to those on His right hand; Come, blessed of My Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry, and you gave Me food; I was thirsty, and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger, and you took Me in; I was naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.
Then the righteous shall answer Him, saying, Lord, when did we see You hungry, and fed You? Or thirsty, and gave You drink? When did we see You a stranger, and took You in? Or naked, and clothed You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and came to You? And the King shall answer and say to them:' Truly I say to you; inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these, My brothers, you have done it unto Me. Then He also shall say to those on the left hand; Depart from Me, you cursed, into everlasting fire prepared for the Devil and his angels. For I was hungry, and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty, and you gave Me no drink; I was a stranger and you did not take Me in; I was naked, and you did not clothe Me; I was sick, and in prison, and you did not visit me. Then they will also answer Him, saying, Lord, when did we see You hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister to You? Then He shall answer them, saying, Truly I say to you, Inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into everlasting life.
(Matt 25:31-46)
Godliness with contentment is great gain: For we brought nothing into the world, and it is clear that we can carry nothing out. But having food and clothing, we {the Elect of YHVH} will be content. But they who will {to} be rich, fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which plunge men into destruction and perdition. For the love of money is a root of all evil, of which some having lusted after, they were seduced from the faith and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. But you, O man of Elohim; flee these things and follow after righteousness, Godliness, faith, Love, patience, and meekness. Fight the good fight of faith. Lay hold on eternal life, to which you are also called and have professed a good profession before many witnesses. (1Ti 6:6-12)
It is both logical and an irony that I get two main responses to this web-page (and reviews to my upcoming book); the first is from Economists (students mostly, as they research and scan the Internet); they realize that what's being taught in the class rooms, and even what was taught in history classes, concerning our current state, lack the meat seasoning that they find here. Then, I get those who just do not get it; they try to tell me all the reasons that our system is the way it is: These are the justification-makers! They see and hear selectively, and then (still on the proverbial tit) respond without ever eating meat.
In fact, I understand 'the system' better than most; I have already written a PhD-level dissertation on the topic. Once a person has been deprogrammed, I can begin with a grade-school-level of enlightenment. Summarily: Exponential greed equals destruction (a socio-natural law, if you please); grow-or-die economics is a 100% unsustainable paradigm. And we are not a failing economic system because it works so well; Rome did not fall because they had it all understood. Just read the pages titled Mammon & Monetizers, as preparatory.
If we want to use human History as a barometer (and endurance is one set element on a larger canvas), we would have to look to China as the longest running human system on Earth. But look at them now; they have succumbed to global pressures, and the (all-too-human) leadership now find themselves with the same feelings of inferiority, for the curse of mankind is volition and the ego (the unkind man). The product? Pollution on a scale never before witnessed, not even pre-EPA. Two billion capitalists? Ye have been warned!
The inflationary economy is just a byproduct of greed on a grand scale; it's not just prophetic fulfillment, it is a greed-pandemic, and like with all addiction, will not end until/from death. In the meantime, those who are caught in the heat of it all, have become so de-naturalized, that the response is the extremes of wealth-mongering at one end, and poverty and surrender on the other: Those who have been beaten and have surrendered, become addicted to the drugs that require a syringe, whereas, the other extreme state requires everything to reach a high; both are just anesthetizing as a way to cope with living Godless lives.
Greed is the most pervasive addiction possible within the human condition. That human condition cannot be recognized by those still trapped within the cocoon of self. No matter what education you purchase, without a bird's-eye view of corporeality, you are a very small player in a much larger board-game, orchestrated by the money rich few.
Without a Spiritual Enlightenment, all the education availed cannot possibly replace 'YHVH-in-us.' But this is the promotion products of the religion-businesses; that you need them to teach you. These are the main products of all the 'hands-out' ministries that plague these destined end-times.
But homelessness in the US is analogous in many ways to Native American experiences, wherein the European sailor-capitalists; the westernized-monetized-christianized-industrialized invaders, looked upon the human Americans (and the animal kingdom) as mere obstacles to their capitalistic pursuits, done and justified satanically under the many sundry banners of Christendom.

Donation Collection Stations? Making a Living Off The Homeless!

Homeless people were not born that way; they did not live all their lives as homeless. They were fathers, husbands, brothers and sons. They held jobs, shops for groceries and put up the Christmas tree every year. Some were even war veterans. They became unemployable, for a variety of reasons; getting old is one main reason; other reasons include substance abuse and mental illness, which are typically greater issues when we are old. In any case, the homeless have tried and failed, and are now suffering from depression and no self-esteem, and the stresses that come from loss and social rejection.
What the homeless need more than anything is a comfortable bed and plenty of time to sleep. They need quality food, privacy and a respectable environment to be in. Most of all, they need the time to recover; to restore; to regroup. Some need in-depth counseling and encouragement, and retraining. The homeless cannot build their own shelters or grow/hunt for their own food. They are forced to be dependent upon the (westernized) modern urban systems that most find themselves trapped within. And those trapped within that system, expects everyone else to be as enslaved to the establishment, as they are.
But homelessness is caused (primarily) by the very system that has made financial security for others; the Industry of Real Estate: Or more accurately, I now call it 'Unreal Estates!' They do not build homes for people; they exploit people with homes; the (un) real estate industry; indeed, anyone who profits from homes!
These people, who have milked the satanic system: Those who have deferred their cost of living onto future generations, feel the guilt-shame-condemnation, deep within, and because of that, they react in both extremes; they feel sorry for the homeless and try to help them, or, they hate the homeless and belittle and reject them, preferring they just go away.
But one thing is for sure; the homeless have no voice; they are marginalized and set aside. Now, only the professionals in the homelessness industry are heard. And (as typical) they tell their version of the story, which must always, ultimately lead to monies in their own bank accounts. Humans are now only valued in USD!
Those that try to help the homeless, do not really care about them (for long), because in order to care at all, one must first have the Love of YHVH within them. The bulk of humanity will live and die in a state of utter Lovelessness: Scripture is clear about that fact; plus, it is fruit-on-the-tree; it is observable and measurable.
Therefore, guilt typically gives way (in time) to a refocus back to one's self. This fact manifests in the hirelings of the donation-stations, and that, being church-businesses or homeless shelters. In other words, they end up becoming employees who solve their own food and shelter issues, by securing an employment role for themselves.

The Homeless: Objects of Pity for the Pious!

If you follow the money-trail, you would find that most of the monies collected because of the homeless, never actually go to homeless people. They go instead, to real estate, taxes, programs, business expenses, and of course the bulk of the monies go to payroll accounts for the many 'program' providers. Most homeless shelters (indeed, most tax-exempt ministries) are products of the 'guilt response'.
Those most affected, are those who read Scripture. (Notice I did not say those who become the contents of the Messiah Scriptures). Messiah Yeshua was intentionally homeless, and called His disciples to walk from one settlement to another, without a certain dwelling place. They relied on those with stationary boxes, to house them while they were in their city/town. Messiah Yeshua called His disciples (then & now) to serve the poor; that, what we do to others is what we do to Him.
Our relationship with YHVH is only seen and reflected in our service to the poor among us. Those in need around us are Elohim's implants; installed here to see if we will serve Him or not. Some of us are His Elect, most are not, but the honor is to serve, period. But you find out who are the friends of YHVH, when you are down.
No one has ever served YHVH by attending or financing religion businesses; they have become mere monologue stations to appease the egos of their CEO's; many are social settings for the superficial who only want to pretend to Love; to make a show via fake caring; they exist to replace unconditional surrender and a death to this world; to this life. We step down from our role as king of the house or lord over our domain; we become bond-servants in the house of YHVH; everything belongs to YHVH and we are His faithful stewards.

To Test The Heart, Just Nudge The Ego!

The homeless are earthly implants (Heb 13:1-3); sacrificial, they are the hard-to-love; they stink, they curse and are combative. They are that very challenge; that very disturbance that serves ultimately to separate the wheat from the tares. After all; even the publicans love their own (Matt 5). To serve and to Love YHVH is to serve those that Messiah Yeshua served; this is why He came, to model Love for us all to see.
But the bulk of the Godless-religious (the Matthew Seven Christians) are worldly people who thus, marginalize the poor and the homeless: They feel guilt because they know what they must do, deep inside, but without the Indwelling Holy Spirit inspiring them mightily and Transforming them radically, they have only their brains and emotions to navigate this life: And there is no Love or mercy in the primate world.
The primate is fixated on conquest, hoarding and domination over others. To bring this nature into the churches is what results in the homeless industry; indeed, humans resourced. They all believe that the solution is to reintegrate people back into a failing and corrupted system; one that the homeless have already failed at.
But making more Capitalists is not the solution, it's the problem. Indoctrinating humans to be like yourself, may make you feel better about being you, but YHVH looks upon what we humans have done to His creation, with loathing. YHVH is far less concerned about our emotional satisfaction and far more concerned with our purpose of heart; what we do, as opposed to how we feel.

Would You Invite Family Members to Stay at Your Shelter? The 'Do Unto Others' Test!

But as said, humans are not herd animals. Everyone is different. We all sleep at differing times; some sleep 6 hours and others 9. The circadian rhythm can be upset by depression, disease and of course (and most commonly) by living unnatural lives. Some eat 2 times a day and others 4. Some prefer one kind of food over another. But when you are a choosy beggar, you should not be finicky, right?
If you are poor; if you are a social loser, then you should just be grateful to get what we give you. After all, I'm superior because I have an education and that gave me a good job, and so I have the mammon to be selective, but you; you are poor, and as a loser, you should grovel for the morsel that drops to the floor, and be glad you have that.
Therefore, the food donated to food banks and shelters are almost always no-name-brands; old food from the back of the cupboard: No firstfruits here! Why? Simple. Without the Transforming power of the Indwelling Holy Spirit, the Godless, and the Godless-religious, live in a state of utter Lovelessness (nothing beyond emotion-peaks), and in that state, seek to serve the self above all others. What Messiah Yeshua lived and demonstrated and taught (us all) was to give all; to be mere stewards of all YHVH puts you/I in power of/over.
Instead, Godless humans see all they possess, as their own personal property that they have the power to decide how to distribute or share, if at all. They have what they have, because of their own greatness; they got an education and make good financial decisions, and therefore, they're more deserving. They work hard, and so they deserve more than others. In the absence of Faith, this world; this life, is under their control.
The justifications for greed and hoarding will resonate in the abyss of darkness for countless millennia. The result for the here and now? Homelessness, poverty, starvation, inequity, inequality, injustice, disease, and death. Mercy is to transcend the ideals of ownership, and turn them into stewardship. The damaged ego is the consequence of the Godless Soul, and the planet is now showing signs of their collective abuse. Humans have damaged the symbiosis and unity of nature, and in so doing, have damaged Earth and all life-forms therein. Homelessness is but one symptom of a much greater disease.
Messiah Yeshua said that we would always have the poor among us: For one person that's an excuse to ignore them, or diminish their presence, thus justifying why they get the last-fruits. But Messiah Yeshua knew that the human condition would not change until He returned again. He was letting us know that the opportunity to serve Him would always be there.

How the Homeless Industry Perpetuates Itself: The Capitalist Paradigm!

We only serve YHVH through serving people; period. Christians are not people who attend church-businesses and label themselves 'Christian'. True Christians are those mimicking Messiah Yeshua; it's not a self-belief or a badge, it's a living reality, or not. By their fruits, ye shall know them. To learn how to do that, refer to the Gospels.
Nonetheless, the control-freaks of our time/culture, use the power they have to control other humans: They cannot help themselves, and this is why they seek out opportunities to dominate and control other human beings. The object and the tools of the power are not as important as the need to dominate. This is why police officers get excited and abuse humans who resist them.
They have been given a legal right to dominate other human beings, and so, many will abuse this power, and physical abuse is its fruit. Not all police officers are abusive (at least, not at first), but when you are partnering in 'the system' (no matter what that system is), you eventually succumb to the masses, and become as they are (or, you eventually quit or are fired).
You see, many young men are filled with anger, but they have learned how to control that anger and thus channel it in a more socially acceptable way. Becoming police is for many (but not all) a venue for acting out violently, and legally: Hence, the adrenaline rushes; the excitement seeking, which itself is a manifestation of addiction.
Therefore, the shelters are tools (systems) for many, to use the resources of food, clothing and shelter, to try to 'change' the nature of the hominid, to be more like they are. And if you do not comply, they can withhold the resources. But as with all charity, it is far easier to support a ministry, than it is to become a ministry. It is easier to put a toy or a can of food in a box during Christmas season, than it is to add a room onto your home for the purpose of sharing it with homeless people. All charity received becomes the accumulated physical evidence of a defeated life; it supports the fact the recipient is a loser in need.
Notwithstanding, the mentality of giving was clearly taught by Messiah Yeshua:
And lifting up His eyes to His disciples, He said: Blessed are the poor, for yours is the Kingdom of YHVH. Blessed are you who hunger now, for you shall be filled. Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh. Blessed are you when men shall hate you, and when they shall cut you off, and when they shall reproach you and shall cast out your name as evil, for the sake of the Son of Man. Rejoice in that day and leap for joy. For behold, your reward is great in Heaven. For so their fathers did according to these things to the prophets. But woe to you who are rich. For you have received your consolation. Woe to you who are full. For you shall hunger. Woe to you who laugh now. For you shall mourn and weep. Woe to you when all men shall speak well of you. For so their fathers did to the false prophets.
But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. And to him who strikes you on the one cheek, also offer the other. And to him who takes away your garment, do not forbid your tunic also. Give to everyone who asks of you, and from him who takes away your goods, do not ask them again. And as you desire that men should do to you, you do also to them likewise. For if you love those who love you, what thanks do you have? For sinners also love those who love them. And if you do good to those who do good to you, what thanks do you have? For sinners also do the same. And if you lend to those of whom you hope to receive, what thanks do you have? For sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again. But Love your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return. Then your reward shall be great, and you shall be the sons of the Highest. For He is kind to the unthankful and to the evil. Therefore be merciful, even as your Father is merciful.
(Luke 6:20-36)
And He put forth a parable to those who were invited, when He noted how they chose out the chief places, saying to them: When you are invited by anyone to a wedding, do not recline in the chief seat, lest a more honorable man than you may be invited by him. And he who invited you and him shall come and say to you, give place to this man; and then you begin with shame to take the last place. But when you are invited, go and recline in the lowest place, so that when he who invited you comes, he may say to you, Friend, go up higher. Then glory shall be to you before those reclining with you. For whoever exalts himself shall be abased, and he who humbles himself shall be exalted. And He also said to him who invited Him: When you make a dinner or a supper, do not call your friends or your brothers, or your kinsmen, or your rich neighbors; lest they also invite you again, and a recompense be made to you. But when you make a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind, and you shall be blessed, for they cannot repay you; for you shall be repaid at the resurrection of the just. (Luke 14:7-14)
And looking up, He saw the rich men casting their gifts into the treasury. And He also saw a certain poor widow casting two lepta in there. And He said: Truly I say to you that this poor widow has cast in more than all of them. For all these have cast into the offerings of Elohim, from their abundance, but out of her poverty she has cast in all she had. As some spoke of the temple, how it was adorned with beautiful stones and gifts, He said: As to these things which you see, days will come in which there shall not be left a stone on a stone, which shall not be thrown down. (Luke 21:1-6)

Groveling & Pre-Homelessness!

The homeless industry exists because of homelessness, but what it has become is a venue for self-superiority. They invest nothing in the pre-homeless because they get their kicks from the groveling of the desperate. This is why they have 'programs'; why there is no dignity in how they house the homeless; why homelessness will never end, despite their many protestations of ending homelessness.
The pre-homeless would not provide the photo opportunities nor the body-count necessary to solicit (beg for) donations from a pseudo-compassionate culture. The test is this: Do you help other people, just for the sake of helping other people? Or do you help others because you care about them, and hope to serve them, just as you would your child or sibling or parent?
Almost all homeless people suffer, not from the addictions or the mental or emotional illnesses: Indeed, most of the illness and the addictions are caused by the inflationary economy and Capitalism (in general) to begin with: I.E: Competitive Economics. To compete economically and to be judged based on that success or failure, is entirely unnatural; it is not the design of our Creator. It is antiChrist at its core.
To live in contradiction to Godly directives, is why Capitalism exists at all. But those who are indoctrinated by it; in it, they know nothing else. With rare exception, the entire human race is but a byproduct of their culture; their upbringing. The only way to transcend that branding iron is to surrender unconditionally unto the Lordship of Messiah Yeshua. This is not about religion, it is not even about Christianity, for this is about a personal death to this life altogether, wherein, the Holy Spirit enters in and respires the dead Soul back to Life.
We must be as the Disciples, who forsook all to follow Him. Without that surrender, we are just hominids going through the motions. If we are Catholics, Protestants, Muslims or Hindus, it really does not matter, for they are all just religions that influence those indoctrinated by them. To die to this life, in order to be born-again back into it, is an entirely different process.
This metamorphic Transformation is not just life-altering; it is to be transported from one existence to another. Until that worm dies, the butterfly never flies. Once we are Transformed, we float above, and can see all things clearly; we become fully conscious; we take on the mind of Messiah (1Co 2:10-16). This is not merely new data added; this is a death, followed by a rebirth; a reboot; a reset of our very soul-heart-mind (John 3:16-21).
Without it, we are just cultural drones oblivious to higher things, and as such, do not see where we are, or why. And so we just go through the motions. This is why the homeless are not shown any dignity; no, not even by well-meaning tax-exempt businesses. If you do not live as those at the shelter you support, then do not make others live that way either.
It was Messiah Yeshua who said; 'as you do unto others, you do unto Me.' Every homeless person you see; that's Messiah Yeshua. He is in there, looking out at you. That is your opportunity to Love YHVH, in the here and now. But Religionists tell people that they Love YHVH by financing them; well brother, you either get it, or you never will: Ever!
The cardboard hovel 🎧 in the photo is just outside of the 'concrete-box-in-the-air' that I was blessed to occupy, along the Ala Wai Canal, as a short-term condo-sitting gig in 2007. I took this picture as I sit here typing, knowing that I'm just a few dollars away from being in that cardboard box, instead of this elevated concrete box.
But what does it really matter? Am I 'better' than those living outside? Is my life worth more or less than these people? Is the cost of the box the value of a man? Is the value of human life summarized by current employment and a rental/mortgage contract? The Nazis (past & present) consider the unemployed as useless eaters; you either make money or you should be dead! That is, until it is them that cannot make money, or runs out of resources.
The term 'homeless' is a misnomer; it is circumstantial. The word never existed in any language until the modern era. I.E: Were all the Native Americans homeless, because all they had were buffalo-skinned lean-to's (tee-pee), or mud adobes, or slept on the open ground? Who defines 'home?' We must have a certain definition of home, before we can define 'homeless'. But in the Capitalist Oligarchy of the Post-Industrial Age, we have made home a business, with profits coming in like rain.
There are the Real Estate corporations, and then the taxation mongers; they are both takers, and they will defend their taker lifestyles, just as they always have, with the threat of imprisonment or death. You must comply. Just you try to set up a tee-pee and just live in it; you will surely end up in jail.
In modern America it is illegal to Not be a Capitalist, and so, this makes it possible to make housing a market, and in 'firma Americana', you must be a Capitalist, or, you must be the opposition; one of those heathen Communists, right? After all, we Americans are a god-fearing nation, with god blessing us, and condemning all those 'others'. Therefore, you are either with us, or against us (wave flag here).
Since a simple box to live in, even in today's radically inflated dollars, would only be about 20K, why then are they so expensive? Industry Profit! Way too many hands in the proverbial pie. This is a nation that loves and even worships unrighteous mammon. To answer the homeless issue here in good old USA: Homelessness in the consequence of 'home' being a commodity that is bought and sold for profit; the homeless are the collateral damage of this sin-evil.

The Son Of Man Has Nowhere To Lay His Head: Worshiping A Homeless Man!

The first posit is often this: Is Luke 9:57-58 (& Matt 8:20) and John 1:37-39 a biblical contradiction? Was Messiah Yeshua homeless or not? The answer would be yes and no. Besides, John one is not specific as to His dwelling place. But there were caravanserai (or Inn's) in the 1st Century, but often the lowly servant class had to camp, or stay in (or live in) rough structures or dwellings. Typically (though not always), the home was a roofed space above a stable (i.e. Luke 2:7); the ground level held the animals and the toilet room, the walls were stone or mud-adobe, and the floor-walls-roof above was built of wood, and thatched.
But the materials used were based on location or geography more than design. Back in the time/culture of Messiah Yeshua, homes were not a product to make sedentary men rich; it took much time and sweat-labor to construct them, and most people had to build homes for themselves; they did not have a Real Estate Industry that sold models from a showroom floor, and a group of laborers from abroad to work for pennies on the proverbial dollar.
Children would live in the parental home; they took care of their parents until they died, and then they took over the home and the process repeated itself, from generation to generation. Since morality was governed and enforced, it was no big deal. But in the Sodom Cities pf all times/cultures, freedom is the overriding theme. Living in darkness and not having people around to turn on the lights, is the motif of these end-times (John 3:16-21).
The family was a smaller part of a Community; a Village. Once a marriage occurred, the newlyweds would build onto the Village, with the help of the Community. Often, homes were taken over by offspring when the parents died. Only in rare cases did children leave the Village or the region; men mostly, and that, to find work or to just travel and explore. Villages were made of rock walls, added to and added to, with dirt or wood-plank floors and thatched roofs, which had to be replaced often.
Messiah Yeshua did not come to Earth to explore, for He had a specific mission; one that required leaving His Village town of Galilee. Therefore, He had a home; it was the family home. Since His step-dad is not mentioned much after He began His missionary journey, it is assumed that he may have died. It is thought that Messiah Yeshua served His family in the place of Joseph, until all the children (His brothers and sisters) were old enough to fend for themselves.
This puts Messiah Yeshua at about 30 years old, and the youngest of/in the family at 15 or so. This means that He always had a building that we label 'home' in His birth Village, but He obviously did not have one anywhere else, and once He left Galilee, He did not spend much time there afterward. He did not come to hang a shingle; He came to hang on a Cross. Amen and Amen.
Therefore, the definition of 'home' determines the definition of 'homeless'. Since the Godless-religious live like the rest of the Godless world lives, they share the same mentality; the same goals and directives in this life. One of those was/is 'the American dream'; to live with all the creature-comforts of the kings and lords of old; to be the ruler of one's own castle; to live in leisure and praise YHVH on the veranda every Sunday, while the enslaved did all the field work; all the manual labor. Lazy sedentary money-dependent humans have enslaved other humans throughout all time; scripture is rich on the topics of poverty and wealth.
Homelessness therefore, has more to do with the mindset of the Capitalist, who measures all things in dollar increments; who views the world through the lens of economics. Therefore, a human's self-worth or self-value, is in direct proportion to one's (dollar) net-worth. To not own a home means that you are without the means; it means that you are of lesser value than those with greater assets.
Just ask any Capitalist (Godless) female, who is very attractive physically, but who is empty Spiritually. They seek rich men, and will offer themselves bodily to the highest bidder. Because they have zero trust in Elohim (and thus, Elohim's people) they seek the worldly for these worldly things, for they believe that the best life to live is one filled with 'things'; the 'bling' that they can show-off to others, so they can receive the praises of men; so their egos can be stroked again today. The cross they bear daily is how to get everyone to like them; to worship them; to want to be them.
Dreams are what happen when we're unconscious! Every time I hear yet another person abusing the word 'dream' I want to lovingly slap the stupid out of them. I'm just going to say it; the average American is a moron; meaning, has not yet elevated up into the lower end of the stupid scale. Honestly, I do not believe there are many actual intelligent humans in North America.
There are many educated, but few intelligent. To listen to (what are clearly) simpleton parrots, mouthing these terminologies to one another, is embarrassing for anyone not near the bottom of common intellect. Even as a teen, I thought that the word 'dream' was exceedingly over-used and over-applied.

The Temptation of Dreamism!

It was the salesmen at the birth of the Capitalist Oligarchy that heavily promoted the dream pathology. They were trying to get people addicted to things that were not physiologically addicting, and so, the idea was to promote Dreamism, and the salesman being the dealer and supplier of the products of that dream.
The American dream, for example, was peddled to the idiots who then parroted the idiom, and made millions of salesmen, millionaires in the Real Estate Industry; those who have no part in the actual construction of the home: Profiteers. And of course, when you have an entire society of profiteers, the price of home (and everything else) has increased tenfold to provide those profits.
Once I became a disciple of Messiah, I learned to seize the day; indeed, there is only today. The better-future pathology reveals the success of the materialist profiteers and their advertising campaigns. The only time I think of the word 'dream' in the context of having what I do not have, or being who I am not, is for that of a life far beyond this one: Heaven!
But you see, those without YHVH-in-you, walk around in this life in a proverbial fog; they are blind, and cannot see: Blind people grab onto those in front of them, and just follow. The dumb are drones; they are monkey-see-do; the bulk of humanity will live and die with zero original thoughts. But again, if you are born blind it is all you know. If you go bling it is a horrifying loss.
In darkness, the blind copy their immediate surroundings, simply because it's all they know; it is all they can know. Therefore, the (Spiritually) blind become parrots and copycats of their micro experiences. Therefore, this is why the American 'dream' was home ownership, for it brought with it, an investment, bragging rights, and luxury.
Mowing the lawn and picking up dog poop became the interaction with the natural world: Therefore, the Soul craved for both worlds; the lazy sedentary life, and the natural life. But the spoiled aristocrats could not possibly labor with their delicate hands, and so the birth of the service industry is also a normal fixture in this nightmare we have been programmed to call the American dream.
The Planet heaves and groans at the (Faithless-Godless-Loveless) human infestation; but that infestation is only taxing because everyone wants to live in urban or suburban settings, and have the rest of the world trucked to them in boxes. Once the boredom itch gets too bad, they average capitalist just squanders the resources of the natural world, to entertain themselves.
Hence, we have the car cult, the airline industry, the travel industry, race cars, ATV's, and other petroleum consuming toys, and of course, YHVH looks upon it all with tears. But hey, the pastor, over at Itching-Ears Ministry's, preached a positive and encouraging message on Sunday; things must be OK after all: Right?

The Picture Window Pathology!

The evidence of the damage to the average human psyche, is the picture window pathology. For all of time, humans lived in nature; we see this in history records, we see it in Scripture. In fact, the modern era is a very new existence, on the larger canvas of the human experience. It is in our Souls; our DNA if you will, to be in the natural world.
However, as humans Industrialized Earth -- from their internal hatred of the YHVH creation, the natural world; a hate that grew exponentially as Scripture reveals -- humans became damaged emotionally; the ego is shot up and bleeding. Scriptural prophecies refer to the 'end of days' as being dark and smoke-filled, choking and dangerous for all life; a frightful place to be.
Now, if the Apostles of Messiah Yeshua were to be transported to today, they'd panic; they would be horrified. They would not even recognize this as Earth. Change took place slowly and over many generations, prior to the 'de-Goding' of the natural world by the YHVH-hating-planet-trashers.
Post-IR (or, the last 5 centuries or so), changes accelerated rapidly, and this was necessary to bring to fruition, the last of the end-time prophecy. What our children will witness and experience, will be other-worldly compared to the life of grandparents. Indeed, it will be at the hands of the human, not the works of YHVH, which will destroy us. It will be YHVH that will ultimately have to repair it all.
Many people actually believe that we humans can and will, somehow, fix our own problems, but this is not just unlikely, it's impossible, given a Spiritual understanding of scripture. Humans are hell-bent on their own destruction, and our global addictions to materialism and the other ego-feeding lifestyles, can only be cured by the Indwelling Holy Spirit. Well, the other solution is for you to think about it, non-stop, 24/7 times a half-trillion years, in extreme outer darkness.
However, there are only a micro-fraction of humans right now, that are truly Saved (Heaven's earthly servants):Scripture also makes it clear that one of the signs of the (end-time) season, is that sin will win over the world, and that even the Religionists will not be Saved-Transformed-Resurrected (Matt 7:21-23).
The end of days would hardly be possible without destiny fulfilling itself. Now, I suppose that some natural disaster could just wipe out all life on Earth, but this is not what is prophesied, and, it is not what we see happening. What we see happening is a slow death; the fact that, in the end-times, humans en mass, become colder and colder; worse than Loveless, and though there have always been cold Loveless beings on Earth, never has there been billions of them, as we can see and measure today. The industrial revolution itself, was but the end-result of this Godless phenomenon, imposed by the westernized-monetized-christianized-industrialized.
Humans in ever-greater numbers, who hated YHVH (or just hated religion via the religionists, and thus rejected YHVH in the mix), began a quest to overturn the original curse: This occurred because of the human predilections of laziness, slothfulness, gluttony and general sedentary living. The problem is not that YHVH cannot provide; that the YHVH creation cannot sustain us: The problem is the state of the human Soul.
Without the Indwelling Holy Spirit, humans are Godless, even the Godless-religious (the antiChrist churched); those who have self-beliefs and participation with religion, but have not been transformed, converted, turned about-face, metamorphosized and Enlightened, by that Indwelling Spirit; what Messiah Yeshua defined as 'born-again', which has become nothing more than a parroted slogan; most who claim it will ironically live & die completely oblivious to what it truly means.
Anyone can harbor self-beliefs, and the Messiah Scriptures are clear that the signs of the end-time-season, will be a devotion to dead religion; a fruitless devotion. Those who profess Christianity (or any other religious precept for that matter), are only in it, for reasons that are not Spirit-centric. They either make money from their participation in religion, or, they gain some other dynamic necessary to their psyche.
The human ego is so perforated and damaged that the efforts made by the bulk of the human race to refill that leaky vessel (the ego), is now measured in mega-tonnage. In other words, the damaged ego craves and hungers; it hungers for its Creator, but it will not surrender the hold of the material world upon them, in order to receive that download from YHVH: the Indwelling Holy Spirit.
Humans become addicted to the world, long before they understand the depth of commitment Messiah Yeshua placed on us. Therefore, the words 'Jesus' or 'Christ' gets utilized, along with Scripture, to help the helpless continue in their addictions. Those addictions are all connected to the physical world; the crack-cocaine addict differs little from the shopping addict, the crap-food addict, the petroleum addict, or the religion addict.
They're all scrambling to fill a void within them, that only the Indwelling Holy Spirit can fill (and to overflowing), and so, the Religionists try to sell them religion as the solution, but as we can measure, that does not fulfill either. Why? Because they sell them a service, not a sacrifice; a club to join for mammon, not a true and Love-centric family to yoke with, daily, now and eternally.

Real-Estate-Free Messiah!

In order to receive the Indwelling Holy Spirit, one must utterly surrender this life; the religionists say that all one must do is 'believe in Jesus'. Well, that part is true, in part; but what is omitted from their sales pitch, is the walking away from the material word, as much as it is in our power to
Why? Because they are building a company, and so they need customers and collections; they need more money from other money-dependents (just like them). If they told everyone to quit their Godless jobs and moved out into the country to build and plant and grow; to take from the creation only, how then would they get a cut; a tithe; a tax? Economics today is nothing more than the exploitation of humans via the implementation of a money system.
You see, the takers exist to not labor; to not plant; to not build (or anything else) with their own hands; they exist in time/space and expect to be compensated for it. They who monetize YHVH, have an ulterior motive in their presentation of god/religion/bible. They are salesmen (and women) who are looking for ways to gain food, shelter, and all the other needed objects of their own time/culture, but without actually producing it themselves.
They are slave-keepers (slavers); they seek to make others do all the labor, and so they seek a 'job' or a 'career' that gives them resources without the actual labor that goes into growing organic food, or building homes and shelters; all that goes into bring into existence the basics of life. This is not just because they are lazy, it is also because they crave more than what YHVH has called us to live with (and for); a simple life.
They crave the materialism of the world that has shaped their thoughts; their desires; their very mentality. Indeed, the American Amish are demonstrating (for the most part) how YHVH wants us to live upon the Earth, but the average capitalist (the most deviant of which are the 'Xians of Religianity'); they can only see the world they were enculturated and indoctrinated by/in.
The Amish therefore, are somehow different than them; they are a peculiar people, and they cannot relate to them as a consequence of their own indoctrination box. It is the Amish that are the same, and the modern world have walked all over them, just like they do everywhere they spread (e.g. Americanization).
The average American is just the product of capitalism, materialism and consumerism, and patriotism; they use organized religion as a way to perpetuate that system; that indoctrinated lifestyle, but under the banner of 'Christian'. But Messiah Yeshua has called us out of that indoctrination; that lifestyle of consumerism and consumption; that state of blind Enculturation.
Messiah Yeshua has called us into the wilderness, to be purged of the things of this world, to show the evil one that we can refuse his worldly temptations. This is the evidence that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit has occurred. Study what happened to Messiah Yeshua right after He was Baptized and Dove ascended upon Him. Messiah Yeshua went straightaway into the wilderness, to buffet His flesh; to take charge of the self; to conquer the self with self-control.
What happened? Satan the devil was there flashing the temptations of this life, in His face, and Messiah Yeshua refused them all. Then what happened? Satan left Him for a time, and this gave Messiah Yeshua the power to do what He did. When we are slave to those material temptations, we prove to YHVH and all with Spiritual eyes to see it, that we have overcome the enemy.

Chronic Homelessness: Paradigm of the Homeless Industry!

The consumer lifestyle is the consequence of multiple millions of humans that serve Satan, each and every day. They hunger for more and Satan says, serve me and I will give-give-give; and so, humans take-take-take, and the fat on their bodies, the local landfills, the air and water pollution, and the planet-raping to make it all possible, bear witness to this gluttony; this utter surrender to the things of this world, offered by the prince of this world, to the inhabitants of this world.
But we of the Indwelling? We are not of this world; we are not driven by the things in this world; we do not make excuses for our abuses. We live simple upon the earth for several reasons, and they should be obvious to those seeking ultimate truth. Those justifying it all? blindness!
But for the bulk of humanity, it is all about justifying the cravings; the addictions; the damage they do to their own bodies, the children, their planet; and ultimately, their god/s. They turn wants into needs, and then justify it all away, and then gather others like them, to help justify their condition. Like the crack addicts who only fellowship with other such addicts, the Capitalists and materialists all group together, and pretend to be Christians in the midst of Sodom City, and utterly oblivious to doing so.
When a child is trained, when he/she is old, they rarely depart from that branding; that indoctrination. Therefore, the fate of the world is not in the hands of the humans; they are dedicated to business-as-usual, until it is too late: Like Noah the fool, building his silly boat, it won't happen to me; it won't happen to us. Science will find a solution; yeah, they got us to this point, surely they can take us back, right?
Staying in homeless shelters, as well as serving among them, I know how they operate; how those employed there are branded (positively and negatively) by their experiences. We (in the US) live in a Capitalist Plutocracy (a true democracy is power of the people, not the politician); this is a Mammon-centric culture, trapped in an economic construct that's inflationary; a grow-or-die economic paradigm. In other words, the economy is rigged and completely unsustainable, with a 0% chance of perpetuity. Freedom is of course, an illusion; if you have no mammon, you have no freedom. In fact, if you are poor and unemployed, you're a criminal.

The Root Cause of Homelessness? Land Ownership!

So what does an economic construct have to do with homelessness? Everything! It's the only reason for homelessness. But we need to rewind a little to see how this all came about. It began with what we today, call Capitalism, and yet, Capitalism is but a consequence; an end result of a Spiritual depravity that developed very slowly, over many generations; from the Resurrection of Messiah Yeshua, ultimately culminating in the Apocalypse.
Capitalism is the boat, and all who are born on the boat of Capitalism remain trapped on it; along the course it takes, we are forced to ride along with it. It does not matter that you see something better and want out of it, you cannot escape it. You and I are chained to it for life. But not every generation will be chained to it, because it will end - it can't not - The US economy is inflationary and thus, unsustainable; it is impossible for it to continue; it is indeed, a mathematical impossibility.
It began as human greed unchecked, and then built over time into the Capitalist Oligarchy we witness today. The entire economy is built off of greed and materialism, that soon became mass-materialism, which itself, is evidence of emotional illness. Humans that have no esteem, no self-worth or self-Love, eventually become retarded from the greed/need to have things, and have more things than others. It is like schoolchildren on the playground; it is all about competitivism; children are like animals in that sense, because they are still (biologically) underdeveloped.
Retardation, therefore, is when a human never matures, either mentally (thus, mentally retarded) or emotionally (thus, emotionally retarded). Mental retardation is a birth defect; it is incurable, whereas, emotional retardation is curable in the right set of circumstances. Now, humans may one day find a link (a gene, perhaps) to emotional retardation (EMR), but for now, most humans who suffer from it, live among us and hold jobs even in Government. In other words, until there is a clinical establishment for emotional retardation, the EMR's will continue to infect the culture they inhabit, such as we witness in North America today.
Though YHVH had dealt with humanity in various other ways, they all failed, and the proof of humanity's inability to transcend the animal, forced Elohim's hand to become the Savior of us all, in the eternal sense. Certainly, if we follow Elohim's Law, our life in the here and now (our corporeality) will be far better: But YHVH respired a Soul into a volitional being (see Genesis one); YHVH wants us to be far more than bipedal hominids, YHVH designed us to be His friends; His eternal companions.
We must understand; time is of no consequence to its very Creator: YHVH works within time frames that were/are sometimes enormous to us. Earth took millions of years to form; biological life adapted over long periods of time. YHVH was many times, silent unto humanity (2Pe 3:8); the Israelites wandered in the desert for forty years; Indeed, YHVH is silent unto humanity right now.
Messiah Yeshua said 'it is finished'; what was finished, was/is the work that YHVH was doing with humanity, prior to Messiah Yeshua; He was/is the final act of YHVH unto mankind. We now have the propitiation, the power and the purpose; we have/need only to freely believe, and then surrender all our freedoms; to surrender unconditionally, the total self, unto the supreme and eternal Lordship of Messiah Yeshua: Once that is real and tangible, we are given the Indwelling Holy Spirit, the ultimate in selfless empowerment.
We have, what all humanity, prior to Pentecost, did not have: 'YHVH-in-us!' No longer do we need to seek YHVH out, or conjure up the spirits, or seek YHVH in temples made with hands, for He is in us and with us right now, if so be that YHVH is in you (Rom 8:6-11).
Without that Indwelling Holy Spirit, religion itself becomes just another source for emotional satiation; a way to add more drama to one's corporeality. The Godless-religious love to have their emotions teased by religious music; by a pastor's stirring monologues. But to die to this life; that's another matter altogether.
A damaged ego -- the outward show caused by Spiritual depravity -- thus requires many 'things' in order to 'feel good' daily. Things are used to fill-in the void that only the Holy Spirit can fill: Living Water! As the Godless (and Godless-religious) continue to massively over consume, Earth groans and wails. This Affluenza is rarely cured; this is why the planet will effectively, shake us off its back; that is, your progeny.
So what does this character assassination have to do with homes? Everything. The real estate industry is an exploitation mechanism; all people who make unearned monies from the real estate industry, are exploiters; extortionists; takers. There are many millionaires off of this inflationary process (inflation itself, being an exploitation procedure within the economic models of the Capitalist Oligarchies).
Bad people earnestly/passionately seek good reviews from other humans. The Godless, and the Godless-religious, do not live their lives as unto Messiah; they do not center all their thoughts and actions with the eye of YHVH on them. They do not live every moment in the presence of YHVH, as an actor to the crowd. They, in fact, do not believe in YHVH and the afterlife at all, and so, religion becomes just one of many tools/weapons utilized to avoid labor and justify being takers in this life.
This is why much of humanity lives in self-delusion. The Godly person has a personal relationship with YHVH, via the Indwelling Holy Spirit; it is 100% Spiritual, not physical in any way. The only physicality to YHVH, is the creation itself; the universe, Earth and its natural world. The Industrialization of Earth is prostitution; a slap to the face of YHVH, who will return (in the Second Advent) to take down and destroy all man-made idols to human efforts and acts (Memorials, flags, etc).

Parrot Drones of the Social Programs!

Anyone familiar with the Book of Acts knows the model we have for living as Christians in a fallen world. But so much time has past; so many generations have past-on, that the slow degradation from Elohim's plan for His children (His Elect) has passed unnoticed. The Amish understood what happens when you live too far from the well of living water; too far from the precepts of YHVH.
They are sitting at home (one that's paid for), oblivious to the housing market collapse; the gasoline crisis; the fall of the US dollar; the economic recession. Why? Because they understand that we are IN the world, but not OF it, and though many self-professing Christians parrot those words, they are fully immersed in the world; they are fully worldly, and just add church/religion to their otherwise Godless existence.
The 12th Century 'Christians' had this same idea; that, because they believe they are a believer; they are thus, predestined to go to Heaven, therefore they could war, kill, rape and plunder: It did not matter to them what they did on Earth, because they were already sealed; awaiting death to enter the Heavenly Kingdom. But this mentality came from the Godless-religious of their time/culture, who taught this heresy.
This same heresy (mentality) is why the faith-alone theology is so famous in the Westernized world; the idea that a self-profession followed by a self-belief, and then tithing, reading and singing at church services, is what constitutes being Messiah-on-Earth; being born again; being Transformed radically by the Indwelling Holy Spirit. Who lets them get away with this myth? The hirelings, just like it was when Messiah Yeshua entered their temple; full-circle indeed (Satan is so predictable).
Of course, if YHVH lets, and time goes on, and the Godless continue business-as-usual, soon most of the humans left will live like the Amish do now, only worse. But we of the Indwelling Holy Spirit, know that this all must happen; it is precursor to the end-time events, it must and will happen.
Even still, we, the Elect of YHVH, are to navigate this life as we know the Disciples of Messiah did, for they set the stage for us to emulate. It is our goal and duty to follow in those footsteps, as best as we can here in UnGodly Sodom Annexed. Verily, it may take a village to raise a child, but the weight of the world will bring them down.
But isolation is not about survival paranoia; this is about living free in Messiah. Therefore, I yoke with the Saved, and I do not mean some self-profession or self-belief; I do not mean weekend religionists. I'm seeking the Elect of YHVH; the Body of Messiah; humans that went through an actual conversion experience; a Spiritual epoch, an about-face in one's corporeal course. I'm not talking about some short-term emotion-centric event that will soon die on stony ground. Without the Indwelling Holy Spirit, human rules become paramount in people's lives.
The early religions religionists became rule-makers; the need to control other humans is only a part of why people set so many rules and boundaries. Rules allow the Godless (and the Godless-religious) excuses and opportunities to reject or abandon other humans: It is a form of power over others; something the Godless psychologically crave. However, we must understand that homelessness must be, for it is one of the many paradigms of corporeality that YHVH will employ on Judgment Day (Matt 25).
We will always have the poor among us; humans will always suffer. The reason? For YHVH to watch and record; to see what you will do with those that you can serve; to watch you be you. The Spiritually transformed (the Saved) live on Earth for really only one reason; to serve the poor. To share Elohim's blessings; to give it all away: There really is nothing else. As for the Godless and the Godless-religious; they live to serve and consume the world; to be the worldly; the christianized antiChrists.
Without a Soul-consciousness, the Faithless-Godless-Loveless hominid masses, will continue to avoid labor; they will continue to trade time for mammon and use that money-power to subjugate and enslave others to build their homes, grow their food and make their clothing, just to name the basic three (1Ti 6:3-5,6-8,9-11). Elohim has a special place for the indifferent; it is wide open and unencumbered: Darkness. Messiah died for everyone!
When the Son of Man shall come in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He shall sit upon the throne of His glory: And before Him shall be gathered all nations, and He shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats: And He shall set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, you blessed of my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me meat; I was thirsty and you gave me drink; I was a stranger and you took me in; naked and you clothed me; I was sick and you visited me; I was in prison and you came unto me! Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when did we see you hungry, and fed you? Or thirsty, and gave you drink? When did we see you a stranger, and took you in? Or naked and clothed you? Or when did we see you sick, or in prison, and came unto you?
And the King shall answer and say unto them: Amen, I say unto you: Inasmuch as you have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, you have done it unto me. Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand: Depart from me, you cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me no meat; I was thirsty and you gave me no drink; I was a stranger and you took me not in; naked and you clothed me not; sick, and in prison, and you visited me not! Then shall they also answer him, saying: Lord, when did we see you hungry, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto you? Then shall he answer them, saying: Amen, I say unto you; Inasmuch as you did it not to one of the least of these, you did it not to me! And these shall go away into everlasting punishment. But the righteous into life eternal! (Matt 25:31-46)
Recall the face of the poorest and the weakest man whom you may have seen; ask yourself if the step you contemplate is going to be of any use to him: Will he gain anything by it? Will it restore him to a control over his own life and destiny? ~ Mahatma Gandhi

Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody; I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat. We must find each other! ~ Mother Teresa

There's no higher religion than human service: To work for the common good is the highest creed! ~ Woodrow Wilson

Those who wish to make room for the Lord must find pleasure, not in private property, but in common property: Redouble your charity. For, on account of the things which each one of us possesses singly, wars exist, hatreds, discords, strife's among human beings, tumults, dissensions, scandals, sins, injustices, and murders. On what account? On account of those things which each of us possesses singly. Do we fight over the things we possess in common? We inhale this air in common with others; we all see the sun in common. Blessed therefore are those who make room for the Lord, so as not to take pleasure in private property. Let us therefore abstain from the possessions of private property, or from the love of it, if we cannot abstain from possession; and let us make room for the Lord. ~ Augustine.

Take Back the Land
In response to one of the worst epidemics of gentrification and low income housing in the United States, a small group of activists in South Florida lawfully seized control over public land, and started a desperately overdue movement. On October 23, 2006, members of Take Back The Land reclaimed publicly owned land in the Liberty City section of Miami, creating the self governed shantytown of Umoja Village. In the wake of public housing vacancies, corrupt city officials and flawed federal programs, a community found the unrelenting courage to fight back. Using minimal resources such as discarded plywood, packing pallets, and tin roofs, a collective group of activists, Umoja residents, and community supporters built temporary housing units for 53 displaced residents. In spite of police arrests, court battles, interpersonal conflicts, and the devastating fire which would reduce the village to ashes, the Umoja clan stood strong with unbridled spirits, proving the power of determination and perseverance. This book by author Max Rameau, documents the planning, development, struggles and triumphs endured by Take Back The Land activists and Umoja Village residents, and tackles the larger fundamental issues of land and power distribution in black communities.

Homeless Culture and the Media
Subtitle: How the Media Educate Audiences in their Portrayal of America's Homeless Culture! This book explores how the homeless are portrayed by the media and, consequently, how public perceptions of the homeless are shaped. By analyzing how the media informally educate their audiences, interviewing homeless people and journalists, and conducting content analysis of news stories, this research uncovers the reality that the issue of homelessness is not a media priority because it does not provide the requisite ratings boost. This study also debunks the myth that the solution to a homeless person's problem is a meal and an overnight stay, illuminating how much farther the distance to becoming a 'regular' person is. This book has received excellent reviews by researchers. Dr. Bob Gassaway, University of New Mexico states 'it tells us about a piece of America few of us understand.' Dr. Don Douglas of Biola University concurs: 'Dr. Reynalds probes a dimension of life in modern America that is seldom addressed and begs for additional understanding.'
