Wouldn't it be satisfying if the energy being put in to help sort out our misdirected world could turn things around? It would be comforting to think so but realistically the banks, corporate media and other multinationals, the merger maniacal 'dark side', are extending systems of control. Lies are commonplace - particularly in the press - but this serves to remind us how important the TRUTH is. However unpalletable. Is God's intolerance of all this destructive madness going to eventually bring this world to an end? This page shows you where to look in The Bible
Land, money and media are the methods of control.... Deprive people of their land and you can control them with money seems to be the long and short of it.... and most of us have been got by the short and curlies.
We have to act. Jesus' direct action in the temple - overturning the tables of the money changers and traders selling goods for sacrafice - condemning them all as a 'den of thieves' is an inspiring moment in the New Testament. One of many.
I have looked at many kinds of spiritual belief but nothing has touched me like Jesus' teachings and actions. The sermon on the mount (Matthew 5-7) shows that no-one understands the importance of love, nor exactly what it means, more than Jesus Christ. I challenge anyone reading this to find any text to compare with it! Tell me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you do.
I'm not into the establishment church and 'middle men' like vicars & professional priests or pastors at all. The Old Testament prophecies that told of the coming of the Messiah coupled with Jesus's attitude to the ecclestastical and legal hierarchies of his day have led me to examine the Bible more closely and find fascinating, life changing prophecies on the end times, particularly relating to the re-establishment of his people, Isreal.
At least 52 different aspects of Christ's coming were prophesied in the Old Testament (see Jewish New Testament ISBN 965 359 006 5, Jewish New Testament Pubs. Inc. Maryland N.J. U.S.A.). Yet still he was not recognised as 'the anointed one' or Messiah by most people who professed the Jewish faith! Let's not make the same mistake when he comes again.
World Government is moving closer all the time - and what's the chance that it will serve the people? Zero! We could be in for some serious skullduggery in coming years/months. A political crisis combined with spiritual disinformation could push us into a Fourth Reich, New World Order with an official world religion that claims to represent ALL religions. This is speculation of course but powerful people will certainly be preparing their version of a spiritual panacea to fill the spiritual gap they have created.
Whilst political action against the greedy and for positive solutions gives us hope, it doesn't necessarily add up to much against the combined power of the capitalists, the armed forces and the media! So the solution, it seems, will be spiritual and not political. We are in the middle of an an undeclared spiritual war and here The Bible comes into its own - here are some passages which I think have been particularly neglected and that form a basis for a different church to the one most of us know. Many of the Pentecostal churches concentrate on this side of Christianity:
Come to me all of you who are struggling and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. Matthew 11: 28-30
In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seeed good in thy sight. Luke 10: 21
I beseech you therefore, brethren, in view of God's mercies, to offer yourselves as a sacrifice, living and set apart for God. Romans 12: 1
If any man thirst, come to me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. John 7: 37-38
Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness,
but rather expose them. Ephesians 5: 11
Don't owe anyone anything - except to love one another; for whoever loves his fellow human being has fulfilled the Torah [Old Testament Law]. Romans 13: 8
Put on the whole armour of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 6: 11-12
Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves. Jesus, to his disciples, Matthew 10: 16
Behold, I will make those of the synagogue of Satan who say that they are Jews and are not, but lie---behold, I will make them come and bow down before your feet, and learn that I have loved you. Revelation 3: 9
No-one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love
or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both
God and Mammon [money, riches]. Matthew 6: 24
Now the company of those who believed were of one heart and soul, and no one said that any of the things which he possessed was his own, but they had everything in common. Acts 4: 32
Woe to those who join house to house and field to field, until there is no more room, and you are made to dwell alone in the midst of the land. Jehovah of armies has sworn in my hearing: "Surely many houses shall be desolate, large and beautiful houses, without inhabitant." Isaiah 5: 8-9
'The land shall not be sold for ever, for the land is mine and you are but my tenants'. God speaks to Moses, Leviticus 25: 23
"If he comes suddenly, do not let him find you sleeping. What I say to you I say to everyone: 'Watch!'" Mark 13: 36-37

Action, not words is what changes things. Non-Violent Direct Action is, in most cases, doing the state's job for them. When you see something that needs doing or stopping act to change it. Don't rely on corrupt or 'jobsworth' authorities.
Like the days of Noah society is going way off course, even the family and marriage is becoming uncool in modern junk culture shaped by moneyed power. Cultural gatekeepers in the media finish off the job by keeping crucial issues like landlessness and monetary reform off the agenda.
To casual Christians, the logical 'progress' of humanity should mean that things would be getting better and better with people living in a happy and increasingly loving world. To them, present world events are puzzling. However this is a comfortable view which ignores Holy Scripture and its Biblical prophecies, many of which may have been fulfilled already.
The final overthrow of evil is predicted in the Bible but the established churches seem to ignore the most relevant bits. If a vicar speaks out against the Church establishment he risks getting kicked out of a job and a (probably beautiful) home like any other employee.
Here's Tom with the weather."
The desire of traders to acquire wealth down the years has turned into greed of horrific proportions. Bankers, bosses of Transnational Corporations and media tycoons at the 'top' wash their hands of responsibility for the deaths of millions of innocent people across the world. "You want to change things...", they say, "get the politicians to do it!" Bullshit! Fraud! They pay and arm the politicians to do the opposite, to rob the needy and concentrate even more wealth in the hands of the rich. Its obscene. The politicians may be ours one day every five years, but they're in the clutches of the super-rich for the other 1,824! That gives ordinary people hardly any say at all..
In the forties and fifties they invented a weapon that could wipe out mankind, if not life on earth. The thermonuclear H-bomb meant that if wealth was to be acquired it would have to be done stealthily and without upsetting governments. Thus big business around the world came together to formalise networks of influence with virtually limitless resources that transcended national boundaries and they began the final moves towards privatising the Earth. They knew the main difficulty would be the nation state so they plotted its downfall. Read more about this
The Earth is, as Gerrard Winstanley and the Diggers knew: '...a common treasury for all...' but its been gradually acquired as the private property of the super-rich land-lords. No doubt, this is not how God intended it to work!
YHWH - the Tetragrammaton - our father's name - usually written Yahweh
One correspondant told me this means simply - "I AM DOING WHAT I AM DOING"
Thank goodness we can do at least two powerful things. As you might have noticed most of us have been conditioned with apathy to believe that our contribution is insignificant. The mainstream media has become lifeless because the most sensitive and caring contributors are edited out. The arts have been taken over by advertisers who want to simply use them to make money. We all want rewarding work because our time is all we have in this life and that precious time they want us to waste working as someone else's wage slave!
The 'joys' of prostituting ourselves to top-down business structures are crumbling around us. Low wages, short term contracts, doubts about social security/welfare, casual labour, all of these trends make working for hire incrementally less attractive. But its not easy to get out of the system since our fundamental rights and needs, especially for land, have been stripped away. The government even extorts income tax from employees so that just about everything you do is, at least in part, working for the state. And those that have power over the state are not the people. They love it when we're feeding the whims of the rich.
The 'democratic' governments of the world have become little more than a perverted mishmash of Public Relations and Protection Racket!
Anyway... back to what we can do about it.
First we can refuse to compromise, that means refusing to swallow lies. I feel better already! We can all help tell the sad and sorry tale of the corrupt system.
Exodus Collective Free Party Sound System and Housing Co-op at The Farm,
People conscious of Jah's presence today - defending themselves from Babylon.
So - we can all shine the spotlight into murky corners where the elites would rather we didn't. Let the world see what they are up to and see how they are taking us all for a ride, parasites living off of our sweat and our resources. Secondly, like The Exodus Collective we can turn our backs on their rotten hierarchical system of haves and have nots. "Oh poverty has always been there and it is a natural part of life that there will be winners and losers", we hear them say... but its getting worse for us at the bottom at one hell of a rate and that's the pagan law of the jungle, we want to live in a civilized society and we've reached the point where we can reject 'laws' of competition and selfishness in favour of agreements of co-operation and collectivism.
Anyway, the second thing is to turn away from the dying system and to start making our own spaces, like the one above part of a low impact settlement.
In places like this we can work not for hire but voluntarily for what we want. We can agree our own rules and continue the process of coming together, organising in new ways of living. Treading lightly on the earth, not seeing it simply as a resource to plunder.
We can get ourselves organised by meeting up with people of a similar mind and take pride in being regarded as 'serious criminals' according to one of the UK's latest bit of fascist legislation, the Police Act 1997, because we dare participate in '...conduct by a number of persons in pursuit of a common purpose...'
By doing so we risk our homes and solicitors offices being bugged by the police and MI5 and our houses being searched, without a warrant. Under the act intelligence information on us can now be sold or 'exchanged for gifts of property' to any business the police think could make good use of it. Legalised bribery, just as the money system is legalised counterfeiting.
The Criminal Justice Act 1995 is a criminal Act of Parliament that gives the police power without responsibility. It makes innocent lifestyles: travellers, ravers etc. virtually illegal. It was as if suddenly Britain was not a free country any more. It was illegal to be different, the beginning of fascism and the police state. It's what made me decide 'enough is enough'.
your affectionate and faithfull friend,
Far spread the moorey ground a level scene
Bespread with rush and one eternal green
That never felt the rage of blundering plough
Though centurys wreathed spring's blossoms on its brow
Still meeting plains that stretched them far away
In uncheckt shadows of green brown, and grey
Unbounded freedom ruled the wandering scene
Nor fence of ownership crept in between
To hide the prospect of the following eye
Its only bondage was the circling sky
One mighty flat undwarfed by bush and tree
Spread its faint shadow of immensity
And lost itself, which seemed to eke its bounds
In the blue mist the horizon's edge surrounds
Now this sweet vision of my boyish hours
Free as spring clouds and wild as summer flowers
Is faded all - a hope that blossomed free,
And hath been once, no more shall ever be
Inclosure came and trampled on the grave
Of labour's rights and left the poor a slave
And memory's pride ere want to wealth did bow
Is both the shadow and the substance now
The sheep and cows were free to range as then
Where change might prompt nor felt the bonds of men
Cows went and came, with evening morn and night,
To the wild pasture as their common right
And sheep, unfolded with the rising sun
Heard the swains shout and felt their freedom won
Tracked the red fallow field and heath and plain
Then met the brook and drank and roamed again
The brook that dribbled on as clear as glass
Beneath the roots they hid among the grass
While the glad shepherd traced their tracks along
Free as the lark and happy as her song
But now all's fled and flats of many a dye
That seemed to lengthen with the following eye
Moors, loosing from the sight, far, smooth, and blea
Where swopt the plover in its pleasure free
Are vanished now with commons wild and gay
As poet's visions of life's early day
Mulberry-bushes where the boy would run
To fill his hands with fruit are grubbed and done
And hedgrow-briars - flower-lovers overjoyed
Came and got flower-pots - these are all destroyed
And sky-bound mores in mangled garbs are left
Like mighty giants of their limbs bereft
Fence now meets fence in owners' little bounds
Of field and meadow large as garden grounds
In little parcels little minds to please
With men and flocks imprisoned, ill at ease
Each little path that led its pleasant way
As sweet as morning leading night astray
Where little flowers bloomed round a varied host
That travel felt delighted to be lost
Nor grudged the steps that he had ta-en as vain
When right roads traced his journeys and again -
Nay, on a broken tree he'd sit awhile
To see the mores and fields and meadows smile
Sometimes with cowslaps smothered - then all white
With daiseys - then the summer's splendid sight
Of cornfields crimson o'er the headache bloomd
Like splendid armys for the battle plumed
He gazed upon them with wild fancy's eye
As fallen landscapes from an evening sky
These paths are stopt - the rude philistine's thrall
Is laid upon them and destroyed them all
Each little tyrant with his little sign
Shows where man claims earth glows no more divine
But paths to freedom and to childhood dear
A board sticks up to notice 'no road here'
And on the tree with ivy overhung
The hated sign by vulgar taste is hung
As tho' the very birds should learn to know
When they go there they must no further go
Thus, with the poor, scared freedom bade goodbye
And much they feel it in the smothered sigh
And birds and trees and flowers without a name
All sighed when lawless law's enclosure came
And dreams of plunder in such rebel schemes
Have found too truly that they were but dreams.
John Clare 1793-1864
Here is the righteous law; man wilt thou it maintain?
It may be, is, as hath still, in the world been slain.
Truth appears in light, falsehood rules in power;
To see these things to be is cause of grief each hour.
Knowledge, why didst thou comes to wound and not to cure?
I sent not for thee, thou didst me inlure.
Where knowledge does increase, there sorrows multiply,
To see the great deceit which in the world doth lie:
Man saying one thing now, unsaying it anon,
Breaking allís engagements, when deeds for him are done.
O power where art thou, that must mend things amiss?
Come change the heart of man, and make him truth to kiss.
O death where art thou? Wilt thou not tidings send?
I fear thee not, thou art my loving friend.
Come take this body, and scatter it in the four,
That I may dwell in one, and rest in peace once more.

'First they came for the communists
and I did not speak out -
because I was not a communist
Then they came for the trade unionists
and I did not speak out -
because I was not a trade unionist
Next they came for the Catholics
and I did not speak out -
because I was not a Catholic
Then they came for me
and there was no one left
to speak out for me.'
Pastor Niemoeller, victim of the Nazis
1. What that famous and moving quotation does not mention is that before they came for the Communists, they came for the homeless, the mentally disabled, the unemployed, and all those categorized as "asocial." (from McSpotlight site: http://18.104.22.168/media/press/bioticbb_24feb99.html )
2. Once upon a time in Germany the Nazis rounded up citizens and murdered them. Other German citizens were so frightened by the Nazis they pretended not to see what was happening to their neighbors. Is the press in your country so frightened by the Elite your journalists and photo-journalists have become a group of "Not-Sees."? Or, are your journalists and photo-journalists "Not-Sees" because they can make more money being dishonest then they can from being honest? see 2 Peter 2:1 email@example.com
