Response to a Financial Question

Thursday, July 31st, 2014

I have been asked by several to provide counsel concerning the acquiring of a windfall of wealth.  In the past, I would have focused on various instruments, laws, favorable jurisdictions, etc.  Today it is different, my response to the latest well thought out request:

The fundamental issue with all assumptions of the current system is that there is absolutely no guarantee that any bank or any instrument will survive a major black swan event, no matter what their history would suggest.  The Hunt brothers got a taste of that reality when they cornered the silver market.  A law was passed to retroactively make what they had done illegal. 

All banks are connected so no bank can be deemed to be totally safe.

Physical assets such as land, gold, and silver are the best means of preserving wealth in the coming chaos.  No matter what jurisdiction you are in, even those assets can be taken away by the ones who have a badge, gun, and a prison.  Lawfulness is optional to them.

All assumptions and conclusions based on past performance no longer apply in my belief.  The U.S. wants another world war and if this comes to pass, there will be no safe jurisdiction.  So, what are we to do?

I believe that it is imperative that we get the needed revelation from Above in how to maneuver during the coming events.  Only then will we know what to do, where to go, and what means to operate from.  That is the only solution I see at this point.  Ten years ago while I was spending much time in Switzerland and other locales, I became aware of many paths as you have mentioned in your post.  I now see weaknesses in all of them.

My focus and resources are now placed in attaining to a higher level of spiritual understanding.  I believe there are mysteries to unlock that will answer all of your questions.  However, they have not yet been revealed. 

Those mysteries are part of the treasures stored in the Treasury of Heaven.  They will only be distributed to further the Kingdom at the appointed time.

Are You Thirsting?

Thursday, July 31st, 2014

Revelation 21:6   And He said to me, “It is done!   I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts.  NKJV

Do you thirst for the fullness of HIM?  I cannot force you or convince you to thirst.  It is up to you to set your own path and level of commitment.  My job is to plant seed and water others’ seed.  Our Heavenly Father will provide the increase of revelation in your life.  When you get your own revelation, it can’t be taken away.  If you are merely convinced by me that something is true, then you can be convinced of the opposite when someone else presents a better argument.  It is up to you to receive revelation from Above.

In the above Scripture, unity is the focus.  The beginning and the end become one.  This verse is tied to another in the Gospel of John (the beloved disciple):

John 7:37 On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. 38 He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” 39 But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.  NKJV

Jesus was making this statement on the last day of the Feast of Tabernacles, a very critical day in the big picture. (7:2 Now the Jews’ Feast of Tabernacles was at hand).  This is the only time the Feast of Tabernacles in mentioned specifically in the New Testament.  Jesus honored this feast as He did the others.  As we have discussed in the past, the Holy Spirit was given at the Day of Pentecost but yet Jesus reveals another impartation at the Feast of Tabernacles.  I believe this impartation is connected to the Baptism of Love.

Freely giving of the fountain of the water of life is an act of Love.  “It is done” indicates completion.  The “water of life” has many facets to it and one such facet is the ability to see, also known as “revelation”.  I believe we will receive revelation without hindrance as we walk in the fullness of life having slain the old man once and for all.  After all, this is our last enemy… death.

Revelation 7:17  “for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters (of life). And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”

In Hebrew, the word “fountain” means “eye”.  Jesus mentions those who have eyes to see.  These are the ones who are able to receive revelation from Above and seek out the revelation, setting aside other priorities in their life.  We must keep our focus on what is truly important in the long term and no longer be distracted by temporal things of the world.

This promise is directed to those who are thirsting.  Where do you stand?

A Call to Liberty

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014

Galatians 5:13 For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. 14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this:“You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”fn 15 But if you bite and devour one another, beware lest you be consumed by one another!  NKJV

“To bite and devour” means to harm and exploit.  This is precisely what those currently in power do to the masses for personal gain.  Financial leaders are more interested in their next bonus than what they are doing to the general public by exposing everyone to unnecessary risks of their life savings.  If you truly believe that Jesus died for all mankind, then you have to accept the fact that ALL men are ultimately classified as your neighbor.  Therefore we are commanded to Love all mankind just as Jesus did.  In understanding this Truth, we comprehend that Our Heavenly Father Loves all of HIS creation, no matter what their current state.

The Old Testament Law could not be satisfied by man’s ability to walk in it.  The children of Israel proved this time and time again.  It required the perfect sacrifice of Jesus Christ to bring forth a change.  This change was a result of Love.  Until you line up with the Divine Intent of Love, you will continue to harm and exploit your neighbor.  It you don’t walk in Love, you will be consumed yourself.  It is that simple!  As you walk in Love, you are freed from the Law of sin and death.  Walking in Love is walking in liberty.

Go the Second Mile

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014

Matthew 5:38 “You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’ 39 But I tell you not to resist an evil person. But whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. 40 If anyone wants to sue you and take away your tunic, let him have your cloak also. 41 And whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two. 42 Give to him who asks you, and from him who wants to borrow from you do not turn away.  NKJV

Love’s actions are contrary to man’s old nature.  Love does not get even but submits any wrongdoings to Our Heavenly Father’s scales of judgment.  Men will try to provoke you to wrath and test you to see if you will really respond in Love.  There has been much discussion about the above passage and what one should do in specific examples.  I want to view the big picture and the primary phrase is “ But I tell you not to resist an evil person”.

An evil person is a vessel of dishonor and walks according to the old man.  The old man is bloodthirsty and likes to inflict pain on others as a result of self-preservation.  He or she operates by the Law of Scarcity.  They want what you have.

What is it that you have?

Galatians 5:22-23   But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.  NKJV

Misery loves company and evil men envy righteous men and want to move them away from righteousness to join them in the camp of evildoers.  Vessels of dishonor are to test and prove vessels of honor.

When you are confronted with evil, you have Our Heavenly Father’s Word that HE will deal righteously with that evil person’s acts thus you do not need to respond in kind.  Since the Law of Abundance is being revealed to you, the opportunity to act accordingly presents itself when confronted by evil.

Desperate men do desperate things.  They are blinded to the Law of Abundance thus they will try to take from you, the giver.  When you respond to evil with Love, you are not walking according to the flesh but instead you are being led by the Spirit.  When a desperate man approaches you, are you going to minimally satisfy his desperation?  If so, you are effectively keeping him in the same state.  He is still in need, just not desperate for now.  Does Love provide just enough to exist or does it supply enough to flourish and allow the desperate man to get a glimpse of The Way of Love?

An evil person expects the minimum whereas Love supplies the maximum.

Ephesians 3:20   and to Him who is able above all things to do exceeding abundantly what we ask or think, according to the power that is working in us  YLT

Consider the fact that Heaven has unlimited resources to consume and swallow up lack and scarcity.  This is true in both the tangible and intangible realms.  Evil actions are overcome by acts of Love.  Don’t be scarce with your Love.  Our Heavenly Father isn’t.

Preparing for Chaos

Monday, July 28th, 2014

“Last week the Securities and Exchange Commission announced new rules for money-market funds. Funds will now be allowed to deviate from the heretofore sacrosanct $1 pricing model. The abilities to charge penalties for withdrawals as well as to delay payment were also part of the announcement. This should be considered an omen to investors when considering how much capital to maintain in these funds as well as the investment strategy of the funds in which money has been invested.”  See: http://www.sec.gov/News/PressRelease/Detail/PressRelease/1370542347679#.U9Y7DvldUrU

They call these changes “reforms”.  I call them alarm bells.  In essence, these reforms have similar characteristics to restrictions preventing a bank run.  Anytime they limit withdrawal of your money, it should be called a new restriction of your money.  Penalties on your money is another name for negative interest rates.  These changes would not be made if those in power were not concerned about the financial storm ahead.

The Good Samaritan

Saturday, July 26th, 2014

Jesus was explaining the Great Commandments on Love to a lawyer.  Intertwined in the explanation was the following parable of the Good Samaritan

Luke 10:30 Then Jesus answered and said: “A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, who stripped him of his clothing, wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. 31 Now by chance a certain priest came down that road. And when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. 32 Likewise a Levite, when he arrived at the place, came and looked, and passed by on the other side. 33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was. And when he saw him, he had compassion. 34 So he went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine; and he set him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him. 35 On the next day, when he departed,fn he took out two denarii, gave them to the innkeeper, and said to him, ‘Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I come again, I will repay you.’ 36 So which of these three do you think was neighbor to him who fell among the thieves?”

37 And he said, “He who showed mercy on him.”

Then Jesus said to him, “Go and do likewise.”

If you are going to fully walk in Love, be prepared to put your money where your mouth is.  The Good Samaritan:

1. Paid for a room

2. Paid for any food and supplies to restore the victim

3. Left the tab open until he returned to make sure the innkeeper was made whole

It sounds like the Samaritan understood the Law of Abundance and operated in it.  What are you willing to do for a “neighbor”?  The stronger must minister to the weaker.

The Futility of the Mind

Saturday, July 26th, 2014

Ephesians 4:17 This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind.  NKJV

At the heart of the ministry of Servias, we want to instruct and encourage you to walk with Our Heavenly Father and not in the futility of the mind.  In order to do this you must have a personal relationship with Our Creator.  HE is never far from you.  Your ego is the primary interference in developing the relationship.  The ego is in the business of self-preservation.  It is the old man who thinks he should be at the center of your being.  The ego would have the heart be weak and the mind run the show.  The heart is where your spiritual connection lies.  When you give the mind power, it will move you towards judging and analyzing has a primary means of decision making.  That is dangerous to your future.

The mind operates under the Law of Scarcity.  The ultimate result of this belief is war.  Greed is the root of all evil and has at its core assumption- scarcity.  This is in spite of the fact that abundance is all around us.  The mind thinks in a binary fashion: up/down, in/out, black/white, etc.  The mind promotes judgment, especially of others.  Your mind judges your intent whereas it judges others by their actions.  It will rationalize why you can sin and wants to evoke harsh penalties on others for the very same act.  It takes no prisoners.  What is the result of living under the mind’s control?  Darkness:

18 having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart;

As you pursue the path of the mind, you move toward outer darkness, isolation, ignorance, and blindness while your mind would have you believe you are enlightened.  You will analyze signs as your primary revelation that you are on some preordained path.  Actually, you are being led by the idols in your heart.  What is the result of this path?

19 who, being past feeling, have given themselves over to lewdness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.

What is the answer?  Put on the new man who is led by his heart and renew your mind:

20 But you have not so learned Christ, 21 if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus: 22 that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, 23 and be renewed in the spirit of your mind,24 and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.

You pursue the path of Love, life, and forgiveness.  You quiet your mind so that your heart can communicate with Our Heavenly Father.  As you focus on the words of Jesus, you will begin to renew your mind with words of Life.  You must quit judging your brother.  Instead, judge yourself and ask for forgiveness.  Set aside the worldly “time burners” and focus on Spiritual Truths.  As you do, you will be prepared for anything that comes your way.  You will learn to rally Heaven’s resources as you walk in Love.  Don’t let the futility of the mind rob you of the richness of Love.  Love will change you but you must make the decision to allow the change.

Psalm 51:10 

Create in me a clean heart, O God,
And renew a steadfast spirit within me.  NKJV

Final Phase of the Dollar Supremacy?

Friday, July 25th, 2014

My premise in observing world events is based on “the love of money is the root of all evil”.  Thus anytime a global-based event occurs, we must consider who has the most to gain from the event.  Yes, there are real accidents that do occur.  However, with as many failsafe mechanisms in place these days, you must consider possible intent behind events.  There are many coincidences occurring which surround the departure from the dollar as being the world’s reserve currency.

Each country attempting to settle payments with something other than the dollar tends to get overthrown.  This was true in Iraq, Libya, and other countries.  Russia and China are moving forward with alternative settlement mechanisms.  Russia is now being vilified for the downing of the Malaysian Flight 370.  Israeli attacks on Gaza has killed more civilians (800 total killed in Gaza, mostly civilians) than the downed airliner.

18.2 million gallons of Agent Orange (Dioxin) was sprayed by the U.S. military over more than 10% of Southern Vietnam, as part of the U.S. herbicidal warfare program, Operation Ranch Hand, during the Vietnam War from 1961 to 1971. Vietnam’s government claimed that 400,000 people were killed or maimed as a result of after effects, and that 500,000 children were born with birth defects.  My brother-in-law as well as many other veterans of this war died because of their exposure to Agent Orange.  I point these statistics out to present a relative comparison of media attention to sway public opinion.  Will we ever know that facts?  Only Our Heavenly Father could wade through all of the disinformation being spread by all.

Saudi Arabia is the latest country taking independent steps to move away from the dollar’s dominance.  Currently, the country’s central bank, the Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency, has long managed the country’s investment of oil surpluses abroad, focusing on low-risk assets; it is believed to have placed over half of its foreign reserves, now equivalent to about $730 billion, in conservative U.S. dollar assets such as U.S. Treasury bonds and bank accounts.  Saudi Arabia’s Shura Council, an influential advisory body to the government, will discuss a proposal for the country to establish a sovereign wealth fund that would invest some of its vast oil earnings, local media reported.  See: http://uk.reuters.com/article/2014/06/08/saudi-sovereign-funds-idUKL5N0OP09020140608

Why does Saudi Arabia suddenly need a sovereign wealth fund?  Could they be intending to dump their U.S. based assets?   What unexpected tragedy will happen there I wonder?

All of this emphasizes the need to place your trust in Our Heavenly Father, not man.

Ugly Numbers coming

Thursday, July 24th, 2014

From John Williams’ www.Shadowstats.com :

- Unhappy Surprises in Pending GDP Numbers
- Look for Downside Revisions to GDP Growth of Recent Years, Including First-Quarter 2014
- Initial Estimate of Second-Quarter GDP Growth Should Surprise Market Expectations Sharply on the Downside

- Quarterly Consumer Inflation of 3.0% at Three-Year High
- Inflation Wiped Out Headline Gain in June Retail Sales
- Real Earnings Fell for Third Straight Month
- June Annual Inflation: 2.1% (CPI-U), 2.0% (CPI-W), 9.8% (ShadowStats)
- Existing-Home Sales Fell Year-to-Year for 8th Straight Month
- Negative Surprises Likely in Next Week’s GDP Reporting and Revisions

Go to the grocery store, the gas station, the local restaurants, etc. and you will agree with John’s 9.8% inflation number.  The governments numbers are pipedreams.  Inflation at 9.8% and the savings rate at .3%.  Your savings is shrinking at a rate of 9.5% per year.  They are trying to get you to prop up the stock market by moving savings to this market of inherent greater risk.  Who really cares about your safety and future?  What they are prodding you to do with the low savings rate:  “Just cross your fingers roll the dice!”  What a travesty to those who spent their lives doing the right thing.
