I Cannot Dig! ~ Lessons of Labor!

Genesis Three (CJB): Now the serpent was more crafty than any wild animal which Adonai Elohim had made. He said to the woman, 'Did Elohim really say, 'You are not to eat from any tree in the garden'?' The woman answered the serpent, 'We may eat from the fruit of the trees of the garden, but about the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden Elohim said, 'You are neither to eat from it nor touch it, or you will die.'' The serpent said to the woman, 'It is not true that you will surely die; because Elohim knows that on the day you eat from it, your eyes will be opened, and you will be like Elohim, knowing good and evil.' When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it had a pleasing appearance and that the tree was desirable for making one wise, she took some of its fruit and ate. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her; and he ate. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized that they were naked. So they sewed fig leaves together to make themselves loincloths. They heard the voice of Adonai Elohim, walking in the garden at the time of the evening breeze, so the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of Adonai Elohim, among the trees in the garden. Adonai Elohim called to the man, 'Where are you?' He answered, 'I heard your voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked, so I hid myself.' He said, 'Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree from which I ordered you not to eat?' The man replied, 'The woman you gave to be with me; she gave me fruit from the tree, and I ate.' Adonai Elohim said to the woman, 'What is this you have done?' The woman answered, 'The serpent tricked me, so I ate.'
Adonai Elohim said to the serpent, 'Because you have done this, you are cursed more than all livestock and wild animals. You will crawl on your belly and eat dust as long as you live. I will put animosity between you and the woman, and between your descendant and her descendant; he will bruise your head, and you will bruise his heel.' To the woman he said, 'I will greatly increase your pain in childbirth. You will bring forth children in pain. Your desire will be toward your husband, but he will rule over you.' To Adam he said, 'Because you listened to what your wife said and ate from the tree about which I gave you the order, 'You are not to eat from it,' the ground is cursed on your account; you will work hard to eat from it as long as you live. It will produce thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat field plants. You will eat bread by the sweat of your forehead till you return to the ground - for you were taken out of it: you are dust, and you will return to dust.' The man called his wife Havah [life], because she was the mother of all living. Adonai Elohim made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them. Adonai Elohim said, 'See, the man has become like one of us, knowing good and evil. Now, to prevent his putting out his hand and taking also from the tree of life, eating, and living forever -' therefore Adonai Elohim sent him out of the garden of 'Eden to cultivate the ground from which he was taken. So he drove the man out, and he placed at the east of the garden of 'Eden the k'ruvim and a flaming sword which turned in every direction to guard the way to the tree of life. {See also: Matthew Henry Commentary ~ Gen 3}
You cannot serve Elohim and mammon!
Yeshua said to His disciples: There was a certain rich man who had a steward. And he was accused to him, that he had wasted his goods. And he called him and said to him, What is this I hear about you? Give an account of your stewardship, for you may no longer be steward. And the steward said within himself, What shall I do? For my lord is taking the stewardship away from me. I cannot dig; I am ashamed to beg. I know what I will do, so that when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses. So he called every one of his lord's debtors and said to the first: How much do you owe my lord? He replied: A hundred baths of oil. And he said to him: Take your bill and sit down quickly and write fifty! Then he said to another: And how much do you owe? He replied: A hundred cors of wheat. So he said to him: Take your bill and write eighty! But the unjust steward's lord commended him because he had done wisely. For the children of this world are in their generation, wiser than the children of light.
But I say to you; make friends by the mammon of unrighteousness for yourselves, so that when you fail, they may receive you into everlasting dwellings. He who is faithful in the least is also faithful in much. And he who is unjust in the least is also unjust in much. Therefore, if you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will entrust the true riches to you? And if you have not been faithful in that which is another's, who shall give you that which is your own? No servant can serve two masters: For either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will hold to the one and despise the other: You cannot serve Elohim and mammon! Being money-lovers, all the Pharisees also, heard all these things, and they derided Him. But He said to them: You are those who justify yourselves before men, but Elohim knows your hearts. For that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of Elohim! ( Luke 16:1-15)

Life Is Time!

Simply put, life is a gift of time. It does not really matter how mathematically long our earth-time is, but rather, what we do with the time we are given; what we come to understand within that time, and thus what we become, today and then forever, because of it. We know that some who die as children will often display an unnatural level of maturity and wisdom that seems to defy their life-time: this is not coincidental. Prior to our earthy existence, we experienced no experiences; we were timeless, which was nothingness, perceptually.
We humans had no consciousness because we were not yet brought into time: new Souls are created (initiated) within humans. Science today, teaches us that corporeality itself is a vessel of/for matter; that matter is subject to time and space, which are effectively the same thing. We know that corporeal matter (itself) never really goes away, it simply changes form, and is thus, eternal, or at least ongoing in that sense. Time is a product of space (or vice-versa?), and as such it is more accurately called spacetime.
Notwithstanding, what we individual humans spend the bulk of our life-time doing; that becomes the sum of our existence; that sum is but the collection of our worship (Rom 12:1-3). Messiah Yeshua was the One who brought this to our minds; He said that we cannot serve Elohim and mammon (Luke 16:13-15); this central and critical theme runs throughout, not only the parables of the Master, but throughout all of Scripture and in many differing ways. But it is not spelled out as a Law list or in 'do-not-do-this' fashion: there is an important reason for that.
When we spend enough intimate time with our Heavenly Father, we become an individual that has no real interest in life-time; like brother Saul put it: To be absent of the body is to be present with The Lord (2Co 5:5-10 kjv). 'This Life Is Not Even About This Life!' Once you are One with YHVH; once John 17 defines your daily existence (instead of money and consumerism), the only prayer you will have left, will be for the strength to continue to meaningfully worship our only King, with whatever amount of time we have left in this life, for the effectual fervent prayer of the righteous avails much (James 5:16).

We Are What We Do, And No More!

Whatever we humans spend the bulk of our waking life-time doing; this is what we love; denying this reality is delusional, though convenient for a season. This was/is the central message in/of the parable of the Sheep and the Goats. What you say or think or believe, has no bearing on your eternal destiny; only what you do, and do not do, will matter (Matt 5:14-16; 16:27; 23:3-5). The religionists sell the notion that if you 'accept Jesus as Lord' then you go to Heaven in the end. I call this the great lie. Romans Road is just Broadway renamed, and Narrow Way never crosses paths with it.
You can make a thousand 'alter calls' and never see the Kingdom of Heaven. Anyone can make a verbal profession in/of anything: 'Talk ain't cheap, it's free!' Peter swore sincerely to Messiah Yeshua that though all others might or would forsake Him, he (Peter) would be there until the bitter end, but Yeshua immediately told Peter that before the days end, Peter would deny Him thrice, and he did (Matt 26:75). Ouch!
It is easy to use words (or prayers, self-professions, lip-service), attend church services, enable religion businesses of any kind, and read a bible, but entirely another thing to surrender unconditionally unto the supreme and eternal Lordship of Messiah Yeshua, and die to this life; die to one's own dreams and desires; die to ego-pride-emotion; die to sedentary living; die to how most humans live; and die daily (Luke 9:23-26; 11:1-4; 1Co 15:27-31).
In summary, to let the old man and the old life die and be buried, and from there, be renewed and healed and restored by the subsequent Indwelling of the Holy Spirit (John 3:3-5; 2Co 5:14-17; Eph 4:20-24). Considering this modern age and the fact that we are deep into the corruption of the end-times; if your lifestyle is even remotely like it was before you 'accepted Jesus as Lord' then you did nothing and your eternal destiny remains as it was before: Doomed.
The only apostle that Messiah Yeshua called away from a particular role was Matthew the tax collector (a hands-out taker). Everyone else, Yeshua included, continued to fish and garden for food, and did other Tekton crafts and traits to support themselves, even as missionaries. When Saul of Tarsus became Paul the apostle, he went from being an elite religious professional (Saul the Pharisee) to a tent-maker and otherwise worked with his hands until death (1Co 4:9-15).
The (infinitesimal & inconspicuous) Elect of YHVH, with very few exceptions, labor with our hands (Eph 4:28): Not to do so is akin to thievery, for you are being a mammon servant by exploiting the monetary system (created and sustained by Satan and his human agents) to buy labor, which is effectively slavery, so that you can avoid producing your own food, building your own shelter and other constructs, and any other labor-intensive result that supports your existence. Most people exploit others because they never Love; it is impossible to Love (or even fathom Love) without Love installed: YHVH is Love and the Holy Spirit is YHVH.
The logic is simple. To think that you Love on your own is to believe you are a god (consciously or not); it is woefully arrogant. But that same aura of self-importance; that ego-centrism, is exactly what YHVH intends to weed out from among us. Material things give people power as well as a sense of entitlement. We are witness this with the car-culture and its devastation to the very planet its abusers are leaving the children they are convinced they love.

Blind Enculturation! Economic Tribes!

The monetization of the creation of YHVH was/is the single greatest act of evil in the sum universe forever, and thus, the love of that money is the root of all evil. Monetizing humans is yet another manifestation of this human-created sin-above-all-sins; we call it slavery, but anyone who turns human into a dollar increment (unpaid slavery or wage slavery) will suffer from the same fate as the mass murderer. The final nail in the proverbial casket was/is capitalism, or the total blind acceptance of the Satan servants economic or money systems, which will be the prime weapon in all end time prophecy.
Capitalism was/is built upon the premise that there are superior people and inferior people: It created (and then normalized) the entitlement mentality; a class warfare, which pits humans against one another. This learned behavior is passed along by generation, with the objects of opposition ranging from religion to skin color (and a host of other things), which are just excuses to hate; to justify the 'us-against-them' mentality.
The class structure was a product of money economics, because money is a thing that can be hoarded into wealth, and it is that hoarded wealth which pays for all military organizations that will ever exist on Earth. Before all of that; humans built shelters, grew or caught their food, and nothing could be hoarded for very long before it rotted or died. But money changed everything, and Messiah Yeshua arrived on Earth (when and where He did) exactly because of it.
The labor roles of Messiah Yeshua, all the apostles, and almost all the (infinitesimal & inconspicuous) Elect of YHVH, did what the modern capitalistic elite refer to as menial work (or labor). They see themselves as above or elevated from these peon social roles. But a money economy is the major player in all end-time prophecies, which would be impossible in a 'Messiah-centric' world. If all humans lived a simple life and was contented and peaceful (1Ti 6:6-10; Heb 13:5-6), the predicted end-time events would not have manifested: Money economics first had to happen.
Within that economic system (which denigrated into what we call capitalism today), there must be what I call 'dead jobs;' things to do to trade time for money, and then to use that money to buy the things that YHVH expects each of us to labor for, on our own; to suffer personally from the labor curse and let that serve to buffet us from a certain feeling of entitlement (which is pandemic in these end-times).
The very design of the human body demonstrates that hard labor is healthy for us, as is simple whole foods and an otherwise stress-free way of life. Life is only complex because the bulk of the human race are Faithless, Godless, and thus Loveless beings (Matt 7:13-14, 22-23; Luke 13:24-28); they remain the sum of their micro-experiences; never enlightened by the Indwelling Holy Spirit.
Here is a hypothetical picture to demonstrate: Imagine that everyone (without exception) gets a bachelors degree (or greater) in every category availed: Now what? The attorney-class alone, requires there be a few thousand criminals and victims, per attorney, in order for them to become wealthy (which is their central goal). But if everyone had a formal education, the competition for such jobs would be far more competitive that it is already.
Even if it were possible for everyone to be gainfully employed in high-paying jobs, who then, would the attorney-class have to criminalize? To make into victims? There is no profit in true justice; certainly not within Authoritarian Economics. When you need a regular supply of money just to survive, whatever it takes to get that money is the core of compromise within the human condition (1Ti 6:6-10).
Then Yeshua says to them: Truly, truly, I say to you, Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man, and drink His blood, you do not have life in yourselves. Whoever partakes of My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed. He who partakes of My flesh and drinks My blood dwells in Me, and I in him. As the living Father has sent Me, and I live through the Father, so he who partakes of Me, even he shall live by Me. This is the Bread which came down from Heaven; not as your fathers ate the manna, and died; he who partakes of this Bread shall live forever. He said these things in the synagogue as He taught in Capernaum. Then when they had heard, many of His disciples said, This is a hard saying, who can hear it? But knowing in Himself that His disciples murmured about it, Yeshua said to them:
Does this offend you? Then what if you should see the Son of Man going up where He was before? It is the Spirit that makes alive, the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit and are life. But there are some of you who do not believe. For Yeshua knew from the beginning who they were who did not believe, and who is the one betraying Him. And He said: Because of this I said to you that no one can come to Me unless it was given to him from My Father. From this time, many of His disciples went back into the things behind, and walked no more with Him. Then Yeshua said to the Twelve: Do you also wish to go away? Then Simon Peter answered Him, Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the Words of eternal life. And we have believed and have known that You are the Messiah, the Son of the living Elohim. Yeshua answered them: Have I not chosen you, the Twelve? And one of you is a devil? But he spoke of Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon; for it was he who was about to betray Him, being one of the Twelve. (John 6:53-71)

The Devil Disciple?

One of the most famous of the 12 disciples was Judas the capitalist. He was like the Pharisees; a money-lover (a mammon-dependent), and knew that he could gain mammon by his infamous act of betrayal. This was one of those predestination moments: Judas knew that Yeshua was the prophesied Messiah, but could not stop himself from the opportunity to (that's right) capitalize upon this situation. On the one hand he knew that doing so would likely doom him to hell, and yet, he did it anyway: He couldn't not! Hence the quote: Predestination: You Can; You Should; But You Won't!
Of course, soon after, he regretted doing so, and in his despair took his own life, but many theological thinkers throughout time have speculated that YHVH did this on purpose; that Judas was a straw-man for Elohim. Personally, I do not think so; volition is genuine, but an absence of real and genuine faith, even in the smallest portion (Matt 13:31-32,37-43; 17:20), is all that is needed to keep humans trapped by blind enculturation.
Matthews portrait of Judas is notably different. To him, Judas is neither a straw man who is quickly set on fire and engulfed in flames, nor is he some kind of embodied personality disorder that is eventually cut down from the noose and set before us as a noble example of something. Rather, his Judas looks a bit like you and me; a guilt-ridden sinner in need of serious help. He serves as a mirror in which we can and should look into our own Soul to see if our dark sides resemble his and to see if there is any traitorous inclination that would lead us to leave the God we love. ~ Matthew (St. Andrew's Expositional Commentary) R. C. Sproul
Judas had the volition to 'just say no' to the money. Yet, our Heavenly Father knew the character of Judas, even before he was born; from that volitional reality, YHVH knew which direction Judas would go. It was foreknowledge to YHVH (who has already seen this movie we call Life on Earth: Isa 46:9-11), but we who are the subjects of time, must wait for it. We can learn all about the Saviour of the world, via the Messiah Scriptures, and we can become very sure of ourselves that we will follow Him, come what may.
But it is only in the course of life that we can be tested; that test exists to see if our protestations and self-beliefs have any eternal roots. Many learn about the price, and know deep inside that they cannot pay it; they cannot or will not resist the devil and his many temptations, and yet, many will still go through the motions of church attendance and religious rituals, nonetheless.
The Godless, and the Godless-religious, will manifest an almost pathological desire for self-survival, and that grim reality infiltrates all their thoughts and deeds. This is because, deep-deep inside, they know they are eternally doomed, and as such, they clamor for more of this life, for it is all they will have, and (deep down inside) they know it. This is why they will focus on survival at all costs; why they are trapped in the same mentalities as the rest of the Faithless world.
They can claim outwardly to be a Christian; validating those claims with church attendance and tithing as physical manifestations of their protestations: However, lifestyle alone, apart from religion, is the only true measure of a man. How we live upon this earth is the only paradigm of one's true spiritual status at any given time.

Victimized By The Capitalistic Agenda!

A money-driven culture cannot be sustained. The need for meaningless employment is obvious in our economic system today. Everyone cannot simply get an education and magically all things will work out; that simply cannot work. A large underclass is necessary for the class system to work.
In the distant past, humans built their own homes, grew their own food and made their own clothing; life was simple and most did not want for more than what they could make. But even then, there were those who would rather steal or con, than to labor with their own hands to build and grow and make the necessities of life, and to be content therein. They wanted more; much more than could have been attained by sweat labor and a simple lifestyle.
The kings and lords, overseers and rulers of the past, created a hunger for power within the next generation. These blindly enculturated young people could see the advantages of being wealthy and powerful, and the Godless among them, likewise wanted to be that way too. Discontented and thus ambitious, the human masses began to cheat and lie and steal to get ahead in this human-created fantasy of superiority and excess.
A simple life was just too simple; it was boring; the pretty girls preferred the rich men to the poor men, and so the poor men sought to be rich as well. Indeed, soon most everyone wanted to be rich. Building a simple structure alongside of one spouse, and having a few animals and a garden for food; this was not the life that many imagined. They wanted to be kings; queens; lords; bosses; leaders; superior: this became Elitism and Classism.
In the Kingdom of Heaven, there will only be one King; one Lord; one Master: YHVH, Adonai our Elohim! What this life on Earth intends to reveal, are those who are content with a simple life, versus those who want more and evermore. This life is about temptation versus temperance; subjugation versus surrender; predation versus provision (Isa 11:6-9; 65:19-25): It will divide the discontented, from the peaceful; those who have surrendered unconditionally unto the supreme and eternal Lordship of Messiah Yeshua, versus those (religious or not) who clamor for evermore in this life.
Lifestyle is the evidence, not religion. Satan was not satisfied with Elohim's system and so he sought to change it and get on top himself. This is (in part) why Satan was sentenced to life on Earth. The god-complex can also be witnessed in humans; those who are not just discontented, but who then seek to use this life as a way to be a little-god with whatever power they can obtain. Even the bosses of the employed become like little dictators.

Capitalism Is Economic Predation!

For a time of time, Satan gets to play god by tempting humans who are characteristically just like him; those who are discontented, materialistic, capitalistic, and power-hungry. For us humans; our lot in this life is irrelevant: those born into poverty, and those born into wealth, still have volition; they can either be content with a simple life, or they can go the other way.
The greed-driven naturally desire capitalism, for they (too) are capitalistic; they prosper from it and because of it. Indeed, everyone who makes money without laboring (including the religionists) favor capitalism, for it allows them the 'freedom' to exploit other people, so they can remain both sedentary and prosperous.
Poverty is a dirty word in these end-times; this is because we are so far down the ruthless path of the capitalistic that it all seems normal to us today (now that's blind enculturation). Discontentment and excess have become commonplace; the easily exploitable state of ambition, and greed, and ruthlessness, and wealth-mongering; these are not only legal and socially acceptable today, they are prized attributes (when evil is good and good is evil, indeed). Money economics, inflationary economics, and profiteer economics; these were (and are) necessary dynamics for all the end-time planetary cataclysms to occur.
Global planetary destruction (at the hands of the Godless masses) would not be possible if everyone minded their own business, built their own homes, grew or raised their own food, and remained living a simple subsistence lifestyle in peace with their neighbors and the creation. When we see life from the much larger biblical perspective, rather than from blind enculturation, we can see all these things unfold; we profit from prophecy. Capitalism as an economic paradigm, is but the last manifestation of deprivation; the final expression of utter Godlessness, before the end comes.

I Cannot Dig!

Defiance was/is the central feature of Satan (and his trillion demon army) and thus by extension, all humans that are 'not' conquered by the Indwelling Holy Spirit. Since day one, the lazy human creature has been trying to defy Elohim's curse on them, all the way until we arrive at the Industrial Revolution, where man finally beat Elohim's curse... or did they?
In solving one problem, humans have created hundreds more; living fattened, slothful, sedentary, ignorant, self-centered lives, as a result of that victory over Elohim's labor curse. Humans are now killing planet Earth: That's amazingly moronic. The (not-so-revolutionary) Industrial Revolution did not take that long, given geologic or YHVH-time (since YHVH is creator of time, space, matter, and energy, YHVH is not guided by any of them).
This bold defiance may empower many in the short term; the military's of the dominators may rule for a span of time, but eventually, humans will fall into the destructive pit YHVH dug, even before we were here. The idea behind Swords to ploughshares (Isa 2:3-4) was that one day all militants would turn in their weapons to be converted into farming equipment for a peaceful world.
But (in reality) we know that only with the return of the King, could such a thing happen. The meek shall surely inherit the earth, but not this one. Indeed, a new earth (in a different solar system) is on the agenda (Isa 65:17; 66:22-23; 2Pe 3:13; Rev 21:1), for there has been too much suffering, pain and death on this planet for YHVH to allow it to remain.

The Seat-to-Seat Lifestyle!

As we can witness, YHVH made us to labor; burning calories working from the sweat of our brow, not merely getting resources from the mammon gained from some purposeless, worldly, human-created, culture-driven employment position. A sedentary lifestyle is clearly more dangerous to health than hard labor: Even captive (once wild) animals suffer the same health problems as 'captive' humans.
Furthermore, when we rely on YHVH to provide for us from the ground, and not just the grocery store, we develop character; we increase in appreciation, perseverance and duty. We also engage nature daily, and this develops other characteristics that YHVH wants us to have.
The bottom line is just sheer laziness; today people claim that we have machines to do all the labor, but these people were the same people (Spiritually and thus psychologically) that used to say that we have 'niggers' to do all the labor. They too, were not content; they too, were not at peace; they wanted wealth and used slaves to get there, and without lifting a finger if possible. For them, avoiding the labor curse was the main goal; a commitment to live an antiChrist existence, whether they were/are openly aware of it or not (and most are not).
US Religious businesses are nothing more than yet another platform for 501(c) tax-exempt entities to recruit for funds. Some people exploit causes to refill their salary troughs, not because they have any real or lasting dedication to justice or human dignity. However, the only way to rid society of capitalistic parasites is to make it unprofitable for them to continue exploiting other humans via profiteer economics. Since that would require a huge standing army to impose Martial Law upon the bulk of humanity, and thus, globally criminalizing profiteer economics; the end-times prophecies are assured.
There is a huge difference between profiteer economics, or capitalism, versus free-market economics. Not only are they Not the same; in many ways they actually oppose one another. The only way for a free market to be actually free for everyone, would be to create laws that serve one main paradigm: To prevent any one individual or corporation from taking too much of a market share of anything and everything. I.e. Reduce your business footprint to allow others to partake in that particular market, or be bombed out of existence; a complete physical and economic destruction of that business entity.

The Script of American Capitalism!

The capitalist mindset is to divert attention away from them, and place it on another issue altogether; to use (indeed, exploit) the word 'freedom' to apply to their wanton monopoly over any sector of the economic system (which is itself, morbidly corrupt). Capitalism is about greed, which is why the masses are all for it. Why?
Because one day they too, hope to profit from the system. Capitalism is the end-result of a (now epidemic) lust to have way more than is necessary to exist comfortably, and then exploiting the laws of the former generations of capitalists, to rationalize, validate, and even glorify this hunger-lust for evermore.
For another example: planetary resources belong to all of humanity, and not a select few wealthmongers who can buy their way into their exploitation paradigms, no matter how legalistically, politically, or ethically they manufacture and present those paradigms (via the human-created political and judicial industries). But since wealth begets wealth (the sum definition of capitalism), the only true justice that can or will occur on Earth, will be with the return of The King (Messiah Yeshua).
Today in North America, it is the 'immigrants' from South America (mostly Mexico) that must cross a dangerous desert to trek to locations where they provide the manual labor in/for the construction and farming industries; this is a reality, exactly because the bulk of Americans are pathologically lazy. It is also destroying human relationships by making every act an economic one, which in turn, will collapse.
Laboring is also a deep connection to Elohim's natural world, which they also oppose; they do not mind viewing the majesty of the created world so long as they do not have to get dirty; so long as they can stay inside human-made boxes. The idiom: 'out of the woods', implies that being in the woods is undesired; an idiom popularized by the urbanized. Laboring, hunting, walking, and hiking, fueled by a good clean diet, equals good health.
There is a direct connection between the reprobate mind and mental illness (Rom 1:26-32; Titus 1:15-16): The long-term mental health of humans is tied directly to the Indwelling Holy Spirit, which then, changes how we live on earth, because YHVH changes how we see the earth. What YHVH has created, let not man tear asunder. One of the most important aspects of laboring together, is that it builds human bonds and relationships that last into eternity. Seeing someone for several minutes at a weekly church service is not a relationship. But for the Godless-religious; this is all they know.
We humans live by the choices made, from within the choices. To put it another way; we first decide how we are going to survive on Earth, and then we select the options that fit within that paradigm; that box if you will. Here is a common scene: 'I am not going to labor with my hands, and live a simple life upon this earth; I want what my eyes are tempted by, and I will not settle for less. I will exploit one of the many opportunities this capitalistic money economy provides, and let others do all the grunt labor on my behalf.'
In other words, this person has already made a lifelong commitment, as to how they are going to survive on Earth. From within this set of boundaries, all other choices are made. This also explains why the rich commit suicide; why so many of the money-rich during capitalism's money-dependent Great Depression committed suicide (or lost their mind) once they lost their wealth. Why not just get a labor job and work? Why die? Horrifying laziness!
But in order to make billions, there had to 'be' billions; hence, the economic construct we have today. The mammon economic system of the modern capitalistic states is ingenuous in its state of pure corruption: Never has there been such a masterminded construct to befall humanity. But this all had to come into being, because the Prophets seen it all happening from antiquity. It is obviously the will of YHVH, but is in fact, it is a manifestation of Satan as the god of this world.
The Federal Reserve is sustaining US capitalism -- directly by loaning to corporations, and indirectly by loaning to the federal government -- to run a huge deficit, excess of trillion dollars... The federal government is not an intrusion; the federal government is the only thing that keeps private capitalism from a complete bust... And what do we know about this way that the Federal Reserve is keeping capitalism going? It's funding the most extreme inequality in a century of American history. ~ Richard Wolff

Capitalism's 'Create-A-Job' Economics!

Have you ever noticed how a particular product or service starts out so good but then gets really bad after some time? This is due to (what I call) deadwood dynamics. A company will create a product or service, but then they have all these employees that have to do something to earn their mammon (salaries), and so they'll spend the bulk of their work-time either shuffling meaningless paperwork, or they are put in charge of reinventing the proverbial wheel. They cannot leave well enough alone.
If it works, don't fix it. This is the logic I grew up with. But within the money-dependent capitalistic economies, simply making something of quality, and then duplicating that, just seems too simple. After all, profit above all else; that is the core of capitalism, is it not? It is just not enough to create the wheel, and then merely reproduce it for the same profit as before. No, more is better. Let us cut corners; we must find cheaper parts or ingredients or methods to ever-increase profits. That's the American Way.
But businesses provide far more to/for the human psyche, than mere goods and services, or even profits; they provide opportunities for the lordship that most people desperately hunger for. They become ranking mechanisms that allow one person to be 'above' another: Hierarchy, which is Satanic to its core. From this normalization, we also find economic class and racial segregation also quite normalized among the secular masses.
Working together as a family, and as Community; this is the only plan, because there are no 'worldly careers' for the (infinitesimal & inconspicuous) Elect of YHVH. Conversely, there are multitudes of things humans can do within the Godless economies that were created by countless millions; the Godless masses (which always includes the Godless-religious) who sought to avoid laboring for their own needs, via these create-a-job programs that now make up the bulk of the capitalist economies.
Most of the problems that humans face today, all stem from this system. Imagine if everyone takes up a small place on the land, and via simple-living, they intelligently take from -- and give back even more to -- the natural world; they become a gentle part of the ecosystem they inhabit, rather than seeing it as an enemy that must be killed or tamed or poisoned or manipulated or destroyed. The Kingdom of Heaven will have no predators, only pacifists.
Permaculture, as a symbiotic micro-system, will provide all YHVH wants us to have; food, water and (the renewable materials for building our own) shelter, as well as a place to enjoy Elohim's creation, and worship Him in it, and for it. We do not need to dig or drill or mine or tap Earth; in fact, it is better if we do not, for all that is sustainable and renewable is found on or near the surface. A simple lifestyle does not require an electrical grid, because the (infinitesimal & inconspicuous) Elect of YHVH do not use much electricity to begin with, and for that we generate it ourselves, via solar, wind, gravity, caloric, and even literal horse-power.
Also, YHVH does not expect us to travel all over the world, like the jet-setters of the Godless world does, in their temporal conquered state of lifestyle economics. The (infinitesimal & inconspicuous) Elect of YHVH does not entertain ourselves at the expense of the biosphere or the health of other humans. Only those in darkness live that way. Our lifestyles are the evidence of our Spiritual status. The internal transformation that is inevitable for the Elect of YHVH, manifests outwardly, in lifestyle.
Because so many people are dependent on the internal combustion engine, they never burn the calories they consume eating (they burn gasoline instead, and pollute everyone; even their own children). Therefore, they have to find ways to burn those calories (or, they get obese), and so the few actually drive somewhere to perform physical activities in order to burn the calories they'd burn if they obeyed YHVH and labored with their hands; if they just got rid of the car and walked.
Without the Indwelling Holy Spirit bringing both light and conviction to the human Soul, these Godless people (including the Godless-religious) live much like whatever the culture that they inhabit. They are not transformed by YHVH, and so they are conformed by (and to) the world: The fruit-evidence to support that fact, is witnessed in how they live; how they navigate this life: Lifestyle. Every act of human slavery or subjugation was either an attempt at avoiding manual labor, or to just get wealthy.

I Am! Therefore, I Am Owed!

People simply justify their laziness through and with the money system, for that system makes it legal and socially acceptable to enslave others (e.g. wage slavery) to do all the labor that YHVH expects each of us to do for the things we need; food and shelter primarily. Like most of humanity, the Pharisees (too) thought that because they exist, someone owed them: Thus, they exploited the Satan servants, economy centric money system, sanctioned by Caesar and the Roman Empire, to exchange their (hands-out) ill-gotten gains, for those labor-intensive commodities such as food, clothing, structures, and other craftsmen items.
Indeed, the bulk of the human race will live and die, completely oblivious to any other way of living on Earth, nor on any other planet for that matter. That is why they cannot be allowed (bodily resurrected and placed) onto any other planet of YHVH in the sum universe. They cannot think for themselves; they are the willing drones, assimilated into money economics, and for this Earth-life, it is all that they were, thought, and believed. Living an economic life is what defined the sum of their corporeality.
Conversely, the first disciples lived just as Messiah Yeshua described them throughout the gospels. Money or currency allows people to justify their disobedience to YHVH by not laboring by the sweat of their brow, to use and enjoy those things that require much physical labor, such as home building, food production, and so on. Today of course, people are so morbidly lazy that they cannot walk; they drive, and care nothing for how that entire process infects the planet and the global community; the collective human impact on the environment.

There Is Nothing Dignified About Gaining Resources Without Labor!

The mammon-dependent are takers; they want a cut of your labor, and they made sure to close all loopholes. You (now) cannot live on Earth without mammon. If you try to exist without it, you are a criminal (you are criminalized). The land is owned by a human, as individuals, businesses or governments. There is no freedom where money is the barometer and benchmark of living. But the Godless, and the Godless-religious, are oblivious to this reality: why? Because they too, are money addicts. They too, are the mindless productions of their micro-experiences.
Everyone born into Capitalism must be one, or will suffer from criminalization, via the insatiably profit-hungry Judicial Industry. The only true form of freedom is to be able to exist on earth, and get all you want or need, from Elohim's grocery store: Messiah Yeshua and His Disciples lived primarily from this source. Though they were forced to partake in Caesar's mammon coinage while in urban settings, they had plenty of rural country from which to hunt, fish, forage, and camp.
The Godless and the Godless-religious, need and want the praise; the credit; the acknowledgment: This is because they are empty inside, and as such, they must seek affirmation from outward sources. Because of this reality, they expect to be thanked and respected; indeed, some even demand it and teach this to offspring. Whenever someone thanks me, I encourage them not to thank me, but that if they are truly thankful, to offer all thanksgiving to YHVH. I am not worthy of thanksgiving: I possess nothing and thus nothing worthy of your gratitude.
Whatever I give you, be it of my time or of a material matter; none of these are mine. The time that I have is a gift from YHVH, for whom I thank; all that I ever possess, belongs to YHVH, and therefore, it is not right for you to thank me for what belongs to YHVH. All that I do, is not for you; it is not so that you will glorify me in any way; it is for eternal rewards (Matt 6:1-4) and I ask that you do not take this from me. Once again, the tree is known by the fruit it bears.
Messiah Yeshua knew that everything belongs to YHVH; however, the Godless, Loveless dominators are ravenous, and grow to actually expect others to give to them, whatever they demand, via their lord money. This is why we have taxes and tithes: It is called 'Takerism', which is one of the fruits of the antiChrists. The takers are sick with greed, predation and conquest; indeed, it was Messiah Yeshua who said of them: 'Father forgive them, for they know not, what they do!' Indeed, they are blind, deceived, and lost.
Without 'YHVH-in-us' the Godless hominids are Loveless beings, and as such, cannot help but to look upon Elohim's creation as a thing they can take, own, conquer, control, kill, destroy, rape, plunder, flatten, pave-over, mine and tap: They are oblivious to their own corruption. If they had a YHVH perspective, they would labor with their hands, and be content with what YHVH provides them, from Elohim's grocery store: Nature.

Theological Ethnography!

I watched on TV as those who had suffered losses from natural disasters (hurricanes and tornadoes) were angered by the lack of support and help; they would whine about how no one would come to help them to rebuild; they were actually angry that everyone was not there, doing everything for them. It never dawned on them to get off their two asses and rebuild for themselves. They wanted (and indeed, expected) to sit idle while others came upon them to rebuild their damaged homes. They were angered by their circumstances, but made no effort whatsoever, to help their own cause. When the (infinitesimal & inconspicuous) Elect of YHVH suffer from such losses, we get busy right away to rebuild our homes that we built in the first place.
The Godless (and the Godless-religious) are lazy; the servants of the idle idol. They have to be picked up after; they have to be told what to do; they have to be herded; they need to be entertained like infants. In America's own recent past, White christianized men used slaves to do all the dirty, laborious work for them. Even to this day, people will cheat or under-pay other people, in order to increase the bottom-line profit of some business venture. Business becomes the reason for compromise and the attenuation or loss of virtues and ethics: 'Ethics Are Negotiable; Morality Is Absolute!'
The business is their own; it is owned by them: It is not a blessing from YHVH to share equally among all participants; it is a product of their own greatness; their own efforts; their own education; their own wise choices. Employment is pawned-off as work (and work is not always labor); when in fact, most people only squander natural resources for no good use, other than to appeal to the egos of other humans; to get mammon; to avoid labor. This is why the term 'dead-end-job' exists as an idiom.
In the cultures of Affluenza -- the landfills, global pollution and health pandemics -- these bear witness to this mindless onslaught. {'Ploy': deceptive tactic or maneuver, especially one calculated to deceive or frustrate an opponent. Encarta Dictionary}. Serfdom is alive and thriving in modernity; it just looks different.
The (infinitesimal & inconspicuous) Elect of YHVH do nothing of the kind; we work together as a team family; as equals; we all live communally in Community, just as the New Covenant describes (See Acts 1 thru 5). We own nothing, for everything belongs to YHVH; we are mere stewards of Earth; pilgrim hands that serve and give and nurture.
The hands of the disciples of Messiah Yeshua, are not for extending to take from others, what we are unwilling to produce; the Godless (and the Godless-religious) suffer from 'Takerism.' We protect and nurture Earth so that we pass it onto progeny in better shape than when we got here. The Godless are as the Bible describes; always willing to take from others to avoid laboring for their own needs; always cheating, lying and deceiving for personal gain; they are here but to steal, to kill, and mainly, to destroy.

Theological Filter of Capitalism!

Those who are Tekton (like Messiah Yeshua) are treated as second-class, whereas in times-past, carpenters, craftsmen, fishermen and farmers were respected by those of their village or community (class, of course, is one of the mentalities of the antiChrists). Today, people who cheat others and become mammon wealthy without working at all, are the one's admired and respected by the masses (Luke 16:13-15).
Welcome to the Laodicean Age (Rev 3:14-18); welcome to the capitalist agenda. The capitalistic, materialistic over-consumer is admired and imitated; parading all the monetary (and psychological) 'bling's' of this life, which elicits praise. All religionists are foremost capitalistic, and so naturally (for them), they filter Scripture through this enculturation.
But the Messiah Scriptures reveal how to differentiate between the churched, versus the Spiritually regenerated; between the transformed (the Saved), versus the Godless-religious; between the (infinitesimal & inconspicuous) Elect of YHVH, versus all other earthly religions (including atheism). Today, we have an 'easier-to-see' root: Mammon. The (infinitesimal & inconspicuous) Elect of YHVH live from the ground up; whereas, the rest of humanity need money to survive, so they take from other humans, and have no conviction for doing so.
They must and will justify it until the end (again; the predestination paradox answered). We who claim Messiah Yeshua as Lord, must not be deceived by the masses, who live only for the 'me-here-now'. In order to remain unspotted from the world requires that we keep our distance and avoid yokes therein; we live in such a way, that we are not addicted to the world and its products, otherwise we will suffer from the same fate as the worldly (2Co 6:14-18; James 1:27).

Imitation: The Greatest Form of Flattery!

The question is answered by a look: Whom do you emulate (Luke 6:44)? Wealth, prestige, power, popularity and social stature are the things most highly esteemed among men. For example (in modern times), the suit-n-tie was the Godless Industrialist's way of showing off economically; that he was a lord and did not labor with his hands, but was rich from his prowess; his superiority; his business greatness (most of them exploited workers as slave-owners-turned-employers).
They (as men) wanted to impress the women and make other men envious: They increased their coitus partners and lured mammon from other people: This was (and is) only about ego (the ever-deflating human ego). This fact has not changed, even to this day. This is why adversarialism, competitivism, hierarchy, and authoritarianism, are so pervasive in the humanized world, but especially among the westernized-monetized-christianized-industrialized masses and their mindset, where it is deeply entrenched.
Labor was not really about serving YHVH; it does that: Laboring by the sweat of the brow was more about operating within the design we were fitted for; manual labor plus walking everywhere; this is how our bodies were designed to remain physically healthy. There is no need to have an exercise program if a person simply makes and grows and hunts and traps and fishes and builds and maintains what is constructed for basic human need.
The main reason why we should labor, and only for our base needs, is primarily to avoid the money system itself, which was created by Satan and exploited by the human masses that daily serve Satan. If I provide for myself and others near to me, the basics of life and living, and exclusively from the natural world, I will not ever become a dependent upon the evils of mammon, and all the subsets of evil that its normalization has infected the human condition with.
Usury was once illegal because it was (and still is) a sin, no different than murder or stealing: Usury was to use money as a way to make more money, but without actually producing anything; gain without the sweat-labor that brings necessities into being. Today, humans trade time for money; a corrupt system which they have voluntarily made themselves a slave to; also a heinous sin unto YHVH, though clearly not unto the Faithless-Godless-Loveless masses.
The presumed work ethic went from this basic principle of sweat labor and the actual creation of a thing worthy of selling (food, houses, etc.), and degraded into the most evil of all economic paradigms: Capitalism! This made the Industrial Revolution possible, which made the human population grow far faster and much larger than the design paradigm allowed for, which in turn, is an unsustainable drain on Earth, which will in turn, ultimately bring about all the prophesies of the end times.
Those who enable this system will be held accountable unto YHVH, the most hypocritical of which will be the Christians, because they proclaim a connection to Messiah, whom they have renamed Jesus Christ, even though they live patently antiChrist lives and lifestyles. Messiah Yeshua condemned, not the prostitutes, but the Pharisees (all religious professionals) and the Attorney-class. The reason for this are multifold, but in short, it was their professed connection with Father Adonai, all the while they were money-dependent, money-loving, sedentary and labor-less; they were hypocritical.
YHVH surely allowed things to degraded over time and over generations, as witnessed with Noah (the great flush), and on a smaller scale, the lava bath of Sodom Metro. In every attempt of YHVH to excise the tumor of sinful humans, the cancer always quickly came back. Laws issued and the fear of suffering or death for disobeying them, obviously was not working. But the experiment had to be run.

Noose of the Capitalistic!

Conversely, Messiah Yeshua and the Apostles worked with their hands to support their earthly needs and (more importantly) their spiritual mission/s. They were common men and had no design or desire to impress with their outward appearances; the disciples (then and today) are/were driven to imitate the Master. To wear a suit-n-tie is analogous to Messiah Yeshua wearing a Pharisees Vestment: Heaven forbid!
Religionists simply do not know Messiah Yeshua personally (via the Indwelling Holy Spirit): Thus, many 'dress to impress;' to be seen of men (Matt 6:1-4; 23:1-7); to be the center of attention, which is egocentric; not Messiah-centric. And, since the suit-n-tie is this culture's badge and barometer of authority and affluence and success, many of the Godless-religious will (likewise) intend to be caught dead in them. There are no Spiritually transformed people (imitating or) wearing the vestments of the Godless materialistic consumerist capitalists: No, not one!

Teach a Man to Fish!

The (infinitesimal & inconspicuous) Elect of YHVH have the mind of Messiah; likewise, we have His mannerisms; His attitude; His directives; His perspective; His lifestyle most of all (Psa 128:1-4; Pro 13:9-11; 14:23; 21:25-26; 23:4-7; 1Th 4:9-12). The Indwelling Holy Spirit turns everyone (without exception) into simple-living pacifists overflowing with peace and contentment (John 14:24-27; 20:21-22), which manifests outwardly in a non-materialistic (non-consumerist) and easily sustainable lifestyle (Heb 13:5-6), freed of blind enculturation and the choking machines of modernity.
Without the Indwelling Holy Spirit, the brain alone cannot understand scripture; therefore it has to compartmentalize it; it has to either take it all literally, or not. The pathology (the thought process) is extreme because the brain is. With YHVH-in-us, we have Love, and from that core comes peace, understanding, compassion and balance; indeed, we have the mind of Messiah!
However, left to our self, the human is lost, compulsive; impulsive; extreme; emotionally immature; generically unstable. This is why the Godless (and the Godless-religious) chase after this world, its people, its ideas, its media, its markets, its brands, its styles, its foods, and so on. They have no other source to emulate; they are blind and must follow what's in front of them.

The Anthropocene Apocalypse!

Mass-materialism and the car-culture are clearly devastating Elohim's Earth; these brazen acts of disrespect and disregard will eventually be settled at the AAA: Apostasy; Armageddon; Advent! Until then, the Godless human masses will continue; denial producing the 'business-as-usual' lifestyles being witnessed and measured (Luke 17:26-30). Humans really only need food, shelter and clothing (1Ti 6:6-10). For those of us living on Earth as Messiah Yeshua did and would; it is an honor for us to live simply: The greatest form of flattery is imitation.
Conversely, to copy the Godless world is a testimony in itself. We of the Indwelling want to labor with our hands; we want to teach our children that they can live upon Elohim's creation gently; that they do not need all the things of this world to have value or worth. The (infinitesimal & inconspicuous) Elect of YHVH teach their children by lifestyle example how to maintain a sustainable world, but the Godless (and the Godless-religious) care nothing about what they are leaving behind, choosing instead to entertain their children; to distract them to the cold realities of their life of indifference.

Stop Taking ~ Start Making!

The Elect of YHVH help each other out with this life's basic needs, so that none go without (food, shelter, raiment). We help them build: In other words, we need more non-lazy men and women to help those without; but without what? First, we are to live simple on this Earth, therefore we help each other out, as brothers/sisters, to build a home and a barn/outbuilding, and then a garden. After that, it takes hard work, but YHVH provides for those who honor Him with their labors.
We are not to go into debt to live, we are to be patient in desired acquisitions, and let YHVH provide then in His timing, or not, and whatever the outcome we are content with what we have. I will teach you how to fish and hunt; I will teach you how to build buildings and other tools; I will even buy you a meal, but I will not give you mammon, that would be a disservice to you and family. Food comes from the ground; it comes out of the lake; shelter is built with labor. People not willing to labor are thieves; they are takers and money-makers.
Love and compassion is to just say no to the addiction of others; especially addiction to the material world; to materialism itself. The Godless-religious pound their ceilings with prayer for things that YHVH never wants us to have to begin with. Once we have sunk so low that we beg YHVH for our material fixes, it is time to surrender to Messiah Yeshua, or face a certain temptation from the prince of this world, who wants passionately to offer you anything and everything to bring you down to his level. Want creates debt; debt creates compromise: Choose this day, whom you shall follow and serve.
As for the Takers, they will always tighten the noose; the taxation of the masses will never reach balance. Every growing oligarchy, religious or political, have collapsed under the weight of greed and money service. Capitalist America is the worst of all possible scenarios, but a major player for Satan's end-time planetary cataclysms. The catholics likewise used their military forces to keep them in power (Study the First Crusade and the Knights Templar just for starters).

If Anyone Would Not Labor; Neither Should They Eat!

Anyone who does not labor are stealing; they are thieves. They trade time for mammon and then use the secular economic systems to get others to provide those things that can only exist via sweating and getting dirty. These people will justify their Godless lifestyles all the way to Judgment Day, and the exchange with Messiah Yeshua is noted in the parable in the latter half of Matthew 7.
The Godless enjoy mammon-centric cultures; they prefer to be among the heathen; the mammon-servants, and then attend churches with them. Why? Because they like the idea that exchanging time for mammon is called work, and even accepted socially and culturally as such. If a man does not work; neither should he eat. And since I'm an employee getting mammon in exchange for time, I therefore, work. But employment is not always labor.
However, this was not about starving out the poor: This was about laziness. There were people (here) that were lazy and did nothing; they went about as busybodies, taking food and other things along the way, but never produced anything (though they were physically able to). How is work defined? They worked with labor and travail night and day. Why? So the Messiah Scriptures and 'Ekklesia' would never cost mammon $. Indeed, if we read it in its full context, theologically, socially, culturally, and economically, the lesson is clear:
Finally, my brothers, pray for us, that the Word of the Lord may have free course and be glorified, even as it also is with you. And pray that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men; for all do not have the faith. But the Lord is faithful, who shall establish you and guard you from the evil. And we have confidence in the Lord regarding you; that you both do and will do the things which we command you. May the Lord direct your hearts into the Love of Elohim, and into the patience of Messiah. Now we command you brothers, in the name of our Lord Yeshua Messiah, that you withdraw yourselves from every brother who walks disorderly, and not after the teaching which he received from us.
For you all know how you ought to follow us, for we did not behave ourselves disorderly among you, neither did we eat any man's bread freely, but we worked with labor and travail night and day, so that we might not be heavy on any of you: Not because we did not have the right, but to make ourselves an example to you to imitate us. For even when we were with you we commanded you this; that, if anyone would not labor, neither should he eat. For we hear that there are some who walk disorderly among you, not working at all, but being busybodies.
Now, we command and exhort those who are such, by our Lord Yeshua Messiah, that they work with quietness and eat their own bread. But you, brothers, do not be weary in well doing. And if anyone does not obey our word by this letter, mark that one and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed. Yet do not count him as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother. And may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always in every way. The Lord be with you all. The greeting of Paul by my own hand, which is the sign in every letter, so I write. The grace of our Lord Yeshua Messiah be with you all. Amen! (2 Thessalonians 3:1-18)
Matthew Henry Commentary (2Th 3) Those who have received the gospel, are to live according to the gospel. Such as could work, and would not, were not to be maintained in idleness. Christianity is not to countenance slothfulness, which would consume what is meant to encourage the industrious, and to support the sick and afflicted. Industry in our callings as men, is a duty required by our calling as Christians.
But some expected to be maintained in idleness, and indulged a curious and conceited temper. They meddled with the concerns of others, and did much harm. It is a great error and abuse of religion, to make it a cloak for idleness or any other sin. The servant who waits for the coming of his Lord aright, must be working as his Lord has commanded. If we are idle, the devil and a corrupt heart will soon find us somewhat to do.
The mind of man is a busy thing; if it is not employed in doing good, it will be doing evil. It is an excellent, but rare union, to be active in our own business, yet quiet as to other people's. If any refused to labor with quietness, they were to note him with censure, and to separate from his company, yet they were to seek his good by loving admonitions. The Lords is with you while you are with him. Hold on your way, and hold on to the end. We must never give over, or tire in our work. It will be time enough to rest when we come to Heaven.

Hunger for Superiority!

The 'rights' or 'authority' mentioned in this postal letter, is not the church-lord pathology witnessed within the State-approved religions; the COP Cults (Catholic; Orthodox; Protestant): Instead, what is being taught here is brotherhood and egalitarianism. The authority here, is speaking of (and to) the One; the fact that Adonai our Elohim owns everything to begin with.
You take or get nothing, but what is allowed by YHVH. You can boast of your greatness in decision-making, or educational pursuits, or your DNA; you can brag about how attractive you are or how much more superior you are compared to others. But know this; you have what you have because YHVH allowed it. If you give me a meal, it is not you giving it to me; YHVH allowed you to have it, and it is not yours, nor was it ever yours. Humans become profoundly cocky and prideful when they acquire resources; but verily, this is part of the larger test.
Today, in these end times, humans claim, own, dominate and control Elohim's world, and all that is in it; however, in the end they will be judged because of it. But belief, and even the laws of men, mean nothing to YHVH, and thus by extension, to Elohim's Elect. But this does not mean we take anything by force or coercion. Instead, we set the example for physical labor; to plant and grow, hunt and fish; we are willing to toil the soil to get food; we are building so we have shelter.
This is the lesson here. It is not at all, about securing man's mammon; It is only about burning calories to make or build or grow; to honor the Temple; to set that example for equality and egalitarianism in brotherhood. None of Elohim's Elect has ever, or will ever, take mammon hand-outs from others under the guise of a tithe, just so they can exchange with the nations and avoid physical labor.
The end-times are what they are, and we cannot change their outcome via political means, or even to rage against the many social injustices. YHVH will work through those injustices for causes far greater than their implications in the here and now, and we must allow for that. People will continue to look upon Scripture through the filter of modernity, whereas we, the (infinitesimal & inconspicuous) Elect of YHVH, must continue to look at modernity through the filter of Scripture. The Godless-religious will continue to look upon the Messiah Scriptures, through the filter of money, but we must again, do the opposite.
Laboring is humbling; it is challenging; it is toil. But it is also satisfying; rewarding; honorable, and, it burns lots of calories. I have built over a hundred new homes and done another two dozen home improvement projects (and wrote four books), and the feeling of creating a home is awesome: To take a yard full of materials, and make it a habitat for humans is gratifying, and that is how YHVH made us. I cannot imagine why anyone/everyone would not want to (at least) build their own home. It is the same with growing food (plants); to see life come from a seed; to nurture it along the way; this is so rewarding.
I could not fathom sitting in some air-conditioned metal office box, surrounded by Godless/Loveless humans; all the games played trying to get ahead, while counting beans and shuffling meaningless paperwork for some bloated corporation (or what Scripture calls busybodies; meddlers; profiteers; takers; non-laborers). These people are as lifeless as the concrete building and all the dead, man-made things within it. The pathetic plant on the desk next to the photos of family, are the extent of their humanity; in truth, their dignity.
Now, it does not mean that we all need to be construction workers or farmers or fishermen to honor YHVH in our labors. I did these for much of my life, but now in my elder years I'm an artist in another way: As a wordsmith apprentice! Still, there is a mission for all of us, that goes beyond food, clothing and shelter; it is to make sure everyone that we come into regular contact with, understand what it is to be Love, and how that Love comes to us.
I'd rather see a sermon, than to hear one any day. We can share Faith with actions/inaction, far better than we can, living like the world, and then sharing about the One that's not of this world, to the worldly. We honor our Lord by/in Community. We have to act like Him too; we have to talk like Him and be like Him. The predestined; the chosen of YHVH, will see 'YHVH-in-us', long before they will rationalize our words about Him. The (infinitesimal & inconspicuous) Elect of YHVH are the living light, but it is YHVH that draws them to the light.
Therefore, living as a disciple of Messiah Yeshua, is the part of that living testimony that words simply cannot suffice. We live in respect of Elohim's creation, not just to preserve resources, but to show others how YHVH wants us to live upon Earth. When we live as YHVH intended, we are not in debt; we are not employees; we are not a resource; we are Family and so we live and work together providing the simple life, giving ourselves more time to serve YHVH and sharing (our food and labors) with the world and one another. I believe in hard labor, not slavery; not being workaholics.
The reason why this world is a tough place, is only because of the multitudes of Godless humans seeking to take from others, rather than toiling the soil, and gaining all they need from nature alone, for themselves. If everyone labored for their own needs, earthly life would be safe, peaceful and harmonious; at least, as perfect as it could be, living on a planet ruled by the evil one: the god of this world, Satan, the most glorious being YHVH created; he operates all religions, with protestantism the last of those whores.

I Don't Like That Version of Jesus: Give Me Another!

We are slaves to those who have the things that we are enslaved to. E.g. I do not want (nor own) an automobile; I learned to live my life without one; thus, the automobile industry, the petroleum industry, and all others directly and indirectly supported by/for the Car Cult, has no power over me.
Many people make mammon from the presence of the machine industry. The same is true with all things equally compromised by/in mammon economics; e.g. the pharmaceutical industry. What makes the capitalist plutocracy unique in the human experience, is that almost everyone makes a profit from other humans; profiteer economics rather than product or produce economics.
Everyone is a slave to that, which they want and need, and if all that you want/need comes from mammon, then you are its servant and the slave of those who give that money to you. Money-dependency is a horrifying state of existence, except of course, to those who know of no other life; no other way to live. Money-dependency is exactly 'not' Elohim's will for any of us; we are to be 100% YHVH dependent, and YHVH does not use any human money; nay, not one penny:
Money economics is from the devil. YHVH is opposed, in every possible way, to money. Much of what Messiah Yeshua taught His Disciples (then and today) was to refuse mammon, and all that comes to us (directly or indirectly) from the mammonite masses; even if we have to suffer because of it. When we eat from the table set by YHVH, other humans are not resources to us: Indeed, they are Messiah Yeshua to us (Matt 25:44-46).
Other people are opportunities to give away all the excess YHVH gives to us, via His creation. We do this by the 150% plan; to have surplus in the lean times, and extra in the meantime (Eph 4:28). YHVH does not deal in the currency of mammon (the source of evil), and this is why Messiah Yeshua refused it. Currency will be our undoing; it will be at the core of end-time events. It was not the way of Messiah Yeshua; mammon belonged to Caesar and the wealth-class.
We share in His crucifixion, simply by living among the worldly; however, we 'do not' partake in their worldliness. We are not dazzled by shiny things (gold and silver and diamonds); these are but rocks to us; the Rock we worship and serve is eternal; immeasurable; incorporeal. This is why the (traditional) Anabaptist was/is a follower and imitator of Messiah Yeshua. It's not that the rest of Scripture is attenuated, but rather; that we first and foremost, follow the life and the teachings of the gospel Messiah: our Grand Paradigm. We are 'Gospel-Christians!'
Mammon economics took over the world, which then brought about the Industrial Revolution, which was a necessary step to bring about the end-times. Prior to that time-line, most humans had to labor with their hands (on some level), and though men have been enslaving others to avoid the labor curse, money was not yet how most people survived on Earth. Consequently, when we read the New Testament, we must understand how it was in the First Century.
There will always be thieves, but the definition had to change. In the past, almost everyone labored with their hands the things that are good (Eph 4:20-24,25-28; Psa 128; 1Co 4:12-16; Acts 18:3,20:34; 1Th 2:9; 2Th 3:7-12; 1Ti 4:10); with the word 'good' meaning things like growing or catching food and building shelter, as opposed to warmongering or prostitution (1Pe 5:1-4) or monetization.

The Bibles-and-Bullets Christians!

We disciples do not make money from YHVH, we live for YHVH. The Godless-religious; the fake Christians; the Messiah monetizers; and specifically herein, the White men who sailed from Europe to the Americas; these people's ancient relatives, had already prostituted and diluted scripture, left The Way, and started the religion of Christianity; this was three dozen generations before the birth of the infamous Christopher Columbus.
Satan had a firm grip on the masses who consumed the traditions of the religion of Christianity, long-long before any of these antiChrists sailed to the Americas. By the time these arrogant pride-driven money-loving Aryans got to US shores, they were already full-fledged servants of Satan, but portrayed as Christians; they were the manifestation of the many antiChrists among us, prophesied in the Epistles of John.
No Spiritually metamorphosized (radically transformed; Soul-Saved; Heaven-bound; future resurrected) person, who will ever exist on Earth, would so much as think about doing to the Native Americans (or the Africans, the Alaskans, the Mexicans, the Hawaiians, or anyone), what the Godless-religious antiChrists did to these very ethnic groups.
These were satanic religionists bearing the flags of their respective (mostly European) nation-states, fully equipped with catholic or protestant priests who employed their own branded talismans, to 'bless' their antiChrist (anti-Love) activities, all done in the name of their king or queen, and country, and their Jesus mascot.
I call these 'the bibles-&-bullets christianized': And we Disciples of Messiah Yeshua, the (infinitesimal & inconspicuous) Elect of YHVH, here in North America, are still surrounded by their descendants; we are pacifists surrounded by capitalistic predators exploiting and prostituting our precious Messiah Yeshua, with their Godless christianization.
The bravery of pacifism is on exhibition by the Elect of YHVH, here in/on a world filled with fear-driven, paranoid warmongers and weapons owners, who are that way, because know deep within that they are eternally doomed at the end of this life experiment. We disciples of Messiah Yeshua (the only future resurrects Saints of YHVH) feel pain for them, but our Master will judge them accordingly, nonetheless.
Artificial lifestyles birth artificial solutions, like drugs or other potions, rather than living by design. The purpose and function behind the daily physical struggles, such as walking year round, enduring cold weather, laboring by the sweat of the brow, spending most of ones life outdoors, sleeping 9+ hours per cycle (though not always all at once), and so on: these struggles these ebbs and flows, are not bad for us, but are good for us.
On the one hand, we of modernity have more ways to protect our overall health, and yet at the same time, we are poisoning our air and water and soil, and treating earth as a mere product to monetize for evermore and never-enough mammon. Such lifestyles and thinking and living, thankfully will not extend beyond this quick planetary experiment, we call human life on Earth. Workism Is Making Americans Miserable.
