“The Lord announced the word, and great was the company of those who proclaimed it:
“Kings and armies flee in haste; in the camps men divide the plunder.
“Even when you sleep among the campfires, the wings of my dove are sheathed with silver, in feathers with shining gold.
“When the Almighty scattered the kings in the land, it was like snow fallen on Zalmon.” -Psalm 68:11-14. NIV Study Bible.
Let’s Get Real!
Authentically, genuinely real.
What Is Wrong with the World?
Here is one thing wrong with the world – corporations
They are not even real.
They are not authentic.
They are not genuine.
They are not “the real McCoy” — if you understand what that means –
If the eyes of your understanding are open . . .
“For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.’” -Matthew 13:15. NIV Study Bible.
They are the pillars of corruption.
God Almighty tells us by His Holy Spirit — Who inspired every word of The Holy Scriptures —
He told us what He created in the book of Genesis.
He created the heavens and the earth and everything in it on it under it and above it – both visible and invisible – temporal things and eternal things.
God Almighty did not create a single “corporation.”
The word corporation is not to be found – not even once in all the books of the Bible.
The word company is in the Bible – many times, in the King James Version.
So, I guess it’s OK with God if you want to start a company – you know, like a general store company that a man stocks with food and clothing and soap and detergent for helping his neighbors with things they need for daily life. And he works there and sees his neighbors every day. And he loves his neighbors as God’s Word tells us to. That’s a good man and a good company doing a good thing. OK, maybe it’s only a sole proprietorship and not a company – a company of one. A soul proprietorship. Anyway, it’s a simple business — like the difference between a little red school house of one room and one teacher and one class of 14 students learnin’ readin’ and writin’ and ‘rithmetic – rather than a humongous university with a sprawling campus as far and wide as a big city.
Corporations, though, are a different thing. They get way too big. And they’re way too complicated. And too powerful. And too rich. They don’t have the common touch of that general store company being operated by a good-hearted man living there with his neighbors. Corporations take away our general stores and our Main Streets. They give us gigantic malls many miles out of town. They take us away from home and lead us into big cities on superhighways in cars going 60 miles an hour through rush hour traffic. They give us stress and air pollution. They are constantly “stimulating the economy” and over-heating the air and the climate. They want to keep burning fossil fuels, rather than turning away from that pollution. They don’t want what’s good for us – like solar panels that don’t spew toxic waste into the air. They are not committed to doing good for the earth and environment and for the good of all living things. Their love of money perverts their hearts and their motives. And the whole Earth’s environment suffers from their perverse love of money-at-all-cost.
In the light of Christ and the words and truth of the gospel and faith in the true God, we can begin to see and understand the reason why God did not create corporations.
On the other hand, those who foolishly choose to love Money rather than God, will not receive the love of the truth. Those unbelievers will continue to love the world system and “the god of this age” [the devil] and the flesh. Consequently, they remain only natural, rather than spiritual. And their natural state of mind, apart from Christ, keeps their heart in darkness where they are spiritually blind and unable to see with the eyes of their understanding. They cannot see nor enter into the kingdom of God.
In the book of Genesis, God’s Holy Spirit recounts for our understanding why he stopped mankind from doing big bad things with their big ideas.
Genesis 11:1-9. NIV.
However, as time passed, men tried again to create monstrous things – things their evil imaginations imagined: towering cathedrals, for example, so they could look up in their sinful pride and feel great about themselves and their accomplishments.
Pride is a sin
The only proud one is the devil.
Isaiah 14:1-32 ESV Study Bible.
And other things, too, they created: humongous ideas – like corporations and laws to empower these artificial entities; and laws to protect these humongous and artificial entities – so they could get away with much evil – even the evil of war for the profit of “the defense/industrial complex” that President Eisenhower warned us against – and the evil of the abortion industry – killing God’s children for profit of Money – in the service of “the god of this age” – the devil, the father of lies and a murderer from the beginning. [please read John 8:42-47. NIV]
Since a man can receive not even one thing except it be given him from heaven, he has not even one thing to be proud of – apart from God.
All glory belongs to Him Who has the kingdom and the power and the glory – God Almighty, the Creator of heaven and earth.
Politics empowers the corporate state to highjack the Federal Government.
And the corporate state is based on the notion of corporation.
And this is the definition of corporation:
Dictionary of Business Terms
Barron’s Business Guides
Copyright 1987 by Barron’s Educational Series, Inc.
“Corporation legal entity, chartered by a state or the federal government, and separate and distinct from the persons who own it, giving rise to a jurist’s remark that it has “neither a soul to damn nor a body to kick.” Nonetheless, it is regarded by the courts as an artificial person; it may own property, incur debts, sue, or be sued . . .”
These artificial entities have become the pillars of a corrupt world system that pollutes the earth and all living things. The rulers of this dark world have been “stimulating the economy” for such a long time that the very air we breathe has become so over-heated by global warming that unheard-of-before viruses are breeding in the heat — pandemics all over the earth that make us all sick. In their willing ignorance of the true God, the rulers have become deluded by “the god of this age” into doing things that are not right for the health and well-being and peace of all life on earth. They are blind leaders of the blind that Christ warned us about. And both shall fall into the pit, Jesus told us.
“Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers gather together against the LORD and against his Anointed One.” -Psalm 2:1, 2. NIV.
Psalm 2:1-12 ESV
Isaiah 14:1-32. NIV.
Hebrews 12:1-29. NIV.
GOD’S WAY OF SALVATION (JOHN 3:16)
Battle Hymn of the Republic (Lee Greenwood with Lyrics, Contemporary)
Amazing Grace with lyrics
“For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope – the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good. These, then, are the things you should teach. Encourage and rebuke with all authority. Do not let anyone despise you.” -Titus 2:11-15. NIV Study Bible.
