Can you feel the surge?
Do you hear the hum?
The surge of manufactured power and the hum of warming printing presses, I mean. (See also: Fear not, stock-holders! The Monopoly money printing presses are here to save you (and bury the rest of us)…again.)
As the “expert”-programmed fiction known as the global economy teeters (again) on the brink of collapse after more than seven years of dramatic efforts to prop up the Ponzi Pyramid, the same State and Corporate masters who brought us bailouts, more bailouts, “quantitative easing” (aka “money printing”), more quantitative easing, and more quantitative easing, are about to “reluctantly” dive into…you guessed it…even more manufacturing of fake money out of thin air.
This “money”-for-nothing will then be used, as always, to selectively bail out and prop up some, while purposefully driving the rest of us into more obvious forms of bondage and dependency.
So those who own things like homes and stock in favored companies will once again be well served, at least in the short term, while those who do not own such things…well…those folks will be paying even more for the rent and groceries that they already cannot usually afford.
This is what “free markets” purposefully become when some have the power to create “money” out of thin air. (See: Fiat $lavery: We have been bought and paid for…with nothing.)
This economic construct under which we live and have been conditioned to view as normal is a direct product and consequence of what Scripture calls an abomination:
A false balance is an abomination to the LORD,
but a just weight is his delight.
~ Proverbs 11:1 (emphasis added)
The biblically abominable behavior getting all the press these days, and understandably so, is the fast-moving, culture-sweeping phenomena of the sexual chaos movement.
With the US Supreme Court ruling in favor of “gay marriage”, State-run “schools” continuing to march our children down the path of conformity with an anti-Christ worldview, and Corporate-run pop-culture pressuring us at every turn to embrace the “freedom” and “courage” of “Caitlyn” Jenner & Friends, it’s easy to understand why the abomination of sexual chaos has captivated the horrified hearts of deer-in-the-headlights evangelicals across the fruited plain. (See: “Supreme Court” Votes for Wrath of God Upon America.)
Yet it is the generally unnoticed abomination of fiat currency has played a major role in empowering the gender/sexuality chaos monster to do what it’s been doing for decades and to achieve the position of apparent (if temporary) dominance that it now holds.
The Corporate/State agenda promoting all of the most vile ills that we do notice all around us is being fueled and funded through a satanic economic system based upon the black magic of fiat currency. The sooner we recognize these connections and begin to retrieve the power we’ve given to those pushing us into the hell of Statism, the better.
What makes this urgent situation particularly challenging is that, as of right now in America anyway, few seem to have any interest in understanding, much less addressing, the problem of satanic economics.
Back in June, we posted Greece is the word. (That nobody wants to hear.), in which we noted:
“There are two topics that we write on fairly regularly here that routinely cause site traffic and interest to dive. But we keep writing about ’em anyway because they’re important.
One of those subjects is technology. The other is economics.
For various reasons – many of which are rooted in lousy “end times” views that fuel apathy, laziness and disengagement from all things not Vacation Bible School related – vast numbers of professing Christians in America have decided to just let the realms of art, economics, business, politics and pretty much everything else go to hell. (See: Encouragement from Satan.)”
Later that same month in Fake it ’til ya break it: What the Greek implosion tells us about America’s future, we added:
“What would you do if you found out that banks in America were not going to open today – or anytime at all this week – and that all bank-held accounts were effectively frozen, with a $60 daily limit on withdrawals?
With the first of the month coming up, how would you pay your mortgage? Or, more accurately, your rent? (It should be noted that everyone in “the land of the free” and the home of the NSA is and always shall be a renter. See: Why home ownership will never be allowed in “the land of the free” and the home of the NSA.)
How would you feed your family?
How would you fuel your car?
How would you cool your home and power your precious cell phone?
These apocalyptic rhetorical questions are rarely taken seriously in an American culture that has been purposefully groomed for daily dependence on the State by its Corporate owners. Here in “the land of the free” and the home of the NSA, we are encouraged at every turn to blindly buy into the inherent invincibility of America.
So when we see reports of these things happening in Greece this week, we tend to pay little attention. That’s Greece. This is ‘Merica!
Things like bank closures, frozen accounts and collapsing fiat currency values just can’t happen here. This is ‘Merica!
Things like riots and looting and mass protests by millions of citizens purposefully driven into State dependence can’t happen here. This is ‘Merica!
Things like “gay marriage”, a surveillance State that would make the Gestapo or KGB weep with envy, and the impossibility of even owning your own home outright could never happen in…wait a minute…that’s exactly what we have right now in ‘Merica. And it’s getting much worse by the minute.
These sad realities are all connected, however much we may like to pretend otherwise.”
Then in July, we kept “following the [fake] money” with Bankers to Laughing Greek Public: You can trust us! Really!, where we elaborated further on the true nature of the ongoing Greek economic crisis:
“So where does the wildly unbiblical and culture-enslaving practice of black magic fiat currency economics ultimately and invariably lead?
To State dependence for the masses and civilizational control for the elites who own and operate said State, that’s where.
At the end of the day, all of the economic insanity driving all of the broader cultural insanity boiling up all around us isn’t hard to understand. It isn’t hard to grasp. It’s very, very simple.
You don’t need to be “a professional” economist.
You don’t need to be a professional anything.
You just need to have two or more brain cells to rub together and the will to make a spark.
Here’s the super-simple, painfully obvious problem at the root of our present economic evils and all of the cultural and civilizational evils that they fund, fuel, and fortify: Some people create “money” effortlessly out of thin air, while everyone else does whatever they are told to do in order to chase after microscopic portions of this artificial wealth.
That’s the bottom line on bottom lines in our fiat currency world.
That’s how supposedly “broke” States, governments and privileged (“too big to fail”) banks and businesses are able go on and on and on forever through perpetual bailouts and the relentless printing (or typing) of more fake “money” into existence by those who have…*ahem!*…claimed for themselves the power to print (or type) “wealth” into being.
If it sounds like a big deal – almost too big of a deal to be true or to even want to wrestle with – that’s because it is.
Some people type trillions into existence.
You spend your life – literally – chasing after a few bucks an hour for the rest of your days.
Some people choose which governments and banks and businesses and asset types (like stocks) are “too big to fail” and thus deserving of ongoing access to the spigot of “free” fake “money”.
You spend your days trying to build something by the sweat of your brow so that you might make an honest return on your hard earned investment and leave your children in a stronger economic position than that into which you were born.
If this sounds a bit like a “I’m trapped in a bad video game” scenario, that’s because it is.
Some people really do type “wealth” – as much as they or their allies need – into existence without anything resembling effort.
The rest of us really do then chase after this fake “money”.
We sell our time for it.
We sell our relationships for it.
We give our children to the Corporate/State system for “education” so that we can have more time to chase after it.
It owns us.
Which means that they own us.
Which is the whole point, from their perspective.”
August’s continuation of the global economic crackup inspired us to connect a few more dots, particularly those that relate to the present American situation, in Why “conservatives” love funding liberalism. (And how they do it.):
“This is what a worldview at war with God looks, smells, and spends like.
Again and again and again and again we hear about how “broke” we are, how we “can’t go on living like this”, and how we need to “be responsible” before we doom our children to the nightmare scenario of a Marxist State brought to life and fueled through an approach to economics that is utterly unhinged and disconnected from reality.
Yet and again and again the same comically hypocritical Pagan “conservatives” (and Pagan-conservatism influenced professing Christian conservatives) keep right on defending and advocating the “improvement” and “strengthening” of Social Security, State-run “education”, and the giant American perpetual war machine.
So what gives?
Why do they do this?
And, more importantly, how does it just seem to keep going and going and going without blowing up or being crushed under the weight of the “impossible debt” that we keep hearing about?
The answer to the first question is that modern American “conservative” types have become every bit as Statist as their Leftist counterparts. Through generations of Corporate-owned, State-run
indoctrination “education”, the vast majority of professing Christians in America have become loud and proud worshippers and defenders of the American State. (See: Confronting Americult.)”
This is not rocket science, folks.
It’s not brain surgery.
It’s all actually quite obvious…but only when God graces us with the desire and ability to open our eyes and face reality.

That’s our hope in posting this today: That God might be pleased to use these clumsy, sometimes rambling words to wake people up and inspire them to biblical action while there is yet time. (Lord willing, and schedule permitting, my hope is to share much here in the future regarding practical steps that we can take along these lines.)
We are indeed living in a world largely dominated and controlled through satanic fiat economics. Even so, we have not been left unable to climb out of the hole in which we find ourselves and, beyond that, on to victories – economic and otherwise – that may now seem impossible from a worldly perspective. (See: Art, math, beauty, logic, law and economics…it’s all about Him.)
But ours is not a worldly perspective. It shouldn’t be, anyway.
The people of God really can (and will!) conquer even the seemingly impossible challenge of economics. (See: Jesus Conquers Everything.)
Our children and grandchildren need not be consigned to the ever-darkening hell of Statism that inevitably flows from the practice of satanic economics.
By God’s grace we really can restore the biblical beauty of work, private property, free enterprise, and truly free markets…but only through Christ, and we can only do these things through Him if we first, by His grace, open our eyes, acknowledge the evil around us (as well as our past enabling of that evil), and repent.
Then – and only then – all good things – including all good economic things – really and truly become possible.
I know that this sort of material is nowhere near as marketable as the Blood Moon efforts of John Hagee & Company or whatever other unbiblical escapist fiction is right around the corner, but if you appreciate these thoughts and know of anyone who might benefit from considering the nature of money and economics from a biblical perspective, please share this post with them.

When's the last time your pastor preached a sermon on Proverbs 11:1? In fact, when the last time he preached on anything beyond personal morality, ecclesial issues, or the warmy-fuzzy/touchy-feely?
It's primarily because of your efforts that I have begun to purchase silver in small amounts. Silver (and gold and other metals) are real money. Paper is only really good for two things. One is writing. the other is a more basic need which decorum forbids me to mention. I encourage other believers to do the same. It is NOT necessary to buy huge amounts of silver in order to have a little something set aside. A few dollars a week ($20-30 in my case) and some patience has yielded me some REAL money in the event of a collapse. I'm not a hoarder. I haven't the money to be a hoarder. I AM a frugal Scot by ancestry though. if there is money to be saved, I will save it.
Aluminum cans are money tossed away. I have a neighbor who drinks like a fish and is willing to save the cans for me. Electrical cords from abandoned appliances yield copper. Don't despise the day of small beginnings. There is money to be had. If you have a metal detector, you can find all kinds of things. It takes patience though. Then take the paper money and convert it to silver at a local coin shop; that's what I do personally. The steel cans which you get food in are recyclable. Some areas you can sell back newspaper or plastic or soda bottles.
It is GOD (and God alone) who gives us the power to get wealth. Wealth doesn't always mean piles of money.
Just a general comment to say I recently found your blog (through the blog Ladies Against Feminism) and want to encourage you to keep doing what you are doing! God is using you in powerful ways. What a breath of fresh air, common sense, and unvarnished Biblical truth. I've been wondering if you could clarify comments such as,
It’s all actually quite obvious…but only when God graces us with the desire and ability to open our eyes and face reality.
(and from your statement of faith page)
The Grace of Faith, whereby the elect is irresistibly enabled to believe to the saving of their soul, is the work of the Spirit of Christ in their heart
The understanding I get from that is that only by God's choice to extend grace to a particular person are they able to desire and come to a saving faith, rather than grace being a gift from God available to anyone for the receiving. I am confused by that because if that is the case then someone who is not "elect" and to whom God has not extended specific grace, then it would not be their fault or choice that they didn't come to saving faith. How do you reconcile that with,
"In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should perish." Matthew 18:14
If God is not willing that any should perish then wouldn't he grace all with the desire and ability to open their eyes? Not that they would all automatically be saved in that case, but would at least have the chance? I'm not trying to argue for the sake of arguing, just honestly wondering . . .
Thank you so much, Mrs. M, for the very kind and encouraging words. They are much more appreciated than you may know.
I only have a moment right now so I'll have to be brief, but I wanted to take a moment now to thank you and touch on your very good (and important) question regarding Matthew 18:14.
The Father not being willing that any of "these little ones" should perish, when understood in the context established earlier (in verse 6) in which "these little ones" are described as "believing in [Jesus]" seems to present an understanding that the "little ones" in question are those who believe. The term does not seem to be used here in a universal generic sense referring to all little ones, but instead seems to be referring to a specific group of little ones: Those whom have been given by the Father to the Son, and we can be certain that none of those "little ones" will be lost (John 6:39).
I will try to dive into your other questions soon. In the meantime, thank you again for the encouragement and have a great night!
Thank you so much for your response. It does make sense that when you examine the wording of that verse it is speaking specifically of that group of "little ones", however the broader issue still confuses me because everything I know of the character of God says that in general it would be true that he would not be willing for any to perish. If his specific (to that person) gift of grace is needed in order to come to a saving faith then wouldn't it follow that if he doesn't choose to extend grace to that person he is damning them to hell without them ever having a chance?
I understand if you don't have the time to delve into such a topic at length, I know such a topic as the mysteries of grace could probably take an entire book and still leave questions unanswered!
Thank you again for your patience with my slow-ish responses. I can definitely relate to your perspective, at least as I understand it, since I grew up with the same assumptions regarding the character of God and the nature of salvation.
Most Christians in America have been conditioned to evaluate God's character based on our own subjective feelings and standards rather than on the perfect, sufficient description that He provides in His Word. We radically underestimate the purity of His holiness, the significance of sin, and the slavery of our "free will" to our sin-loving fallen nature until and unless He intervenes on our behalf.
I think a fundamental error preventing the consistent application of all relevant Scripture pertaining to the issue of salvation is the presupposition that the nature of any unsaved person is such that they would ever choose to obey the God they hate, pursue the holiness they despise, or reject the sin that they love and adore. If God left us to our own freely chosen ends, we would all freely choose hell and damnation each and every time. We would never freely choose to submit to Him as Lord, as to do so violates our self-centered nature. The fact that He freely chooses to save those who would never freely choose to serve Him until He literally gives them a new nature with new desires and inclinations is at the heart of the matter here. The more we understand this, the less we will ask the question "why wouldn't He give everyone the same saving grace?" and the more we will ask and appreciate the profoundly humbling answer to the question: "Why does He freely choose to so save any of these God-hating creatures?"
The rhetorical "but isn't that unfair" question that often comes up at this point is anticipated and answered by God through Paul in Romans:
What shall we say then? Is there injustice on God's part? By no means! For he says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.” So then it depends not on human will or exertion, but on God, who has mercy. For the Scripture says to Pharaoh, “For this very purpose I have raised you up, that I might show my power in you, and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.” So then he has mercy on whomever he wills, and he hardens whomever he wills.
You will say to me then, “Why does he still find fault? For who can resist his will?” But who are you, O man, to answer back to God? Will what is molded say to its molder, “Why have you made me like this?” Has the potter no right over the clay, to make out of the same lump one vessel for honorable use and another for dishonorable use? What if God, desiring to show his wrath and to make known his power, has endured with much patience vessels of wrath prepared for destruction, in order to make known the riches of his glory for vessels of mercy, which he has prepared beforehand for glory—even us whom he has called, not from the Jews only but also from the Gentiles? (Romans 9:14-24)
I hope that these clarifications are helpful. Have a great rest of the day!
I truly appreciate your time in giving such a detailed response. What you say makes sense, and I will have to seriously reconsider my thoughts on the issue!
I can only imagine that yours must be a very thankless task, proclaiming truths that the vast majority of Christians are not at all interested in hearing. I want to encourage you that your words are heard and are having an effect. Your posts have really challenged my thinking about a number of things, including the issue of teaching in public schools. I am a teacher and I have always been in complete agreement that our children should not be in the public schools, but I had only ever heard good reasons for why adult Christians should teach in them ( being a "missionary" and a "light in the darkness", etc.) After reading through your archives your post on the issue is the reason why I did not accept a job in a public school when offered, but rather work in a private Christian school.
I wanted to leave you with the following, and thank you for being a faithful "watchman".
"How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!”
Listen! Your watchmen lift up their voices; together they shout for joy. When the Lord returns to Zion, they will see it with their own eyes." (Isaiah 52:7-8)
