Indigenous vs. Surrogate Power

Throughout Economic History, there has been a battle between indigenous and surrogate power.  Each of us has indigenous power- native, innate, and before intrusion.  On the other hand, surrogate power appoints another as a replacement for one’s own power and authority.  Each of us has rights given by our Creator.  When governments (surrogate power) are formed, we assign or give up some of our rights (indigenous power).  As long as the government represents our will everything works well.  However, when the government attempts to operate as an indigenous power, society begins to suffer.  As this illusion grows, so do the problems and repercussions.  Since true indigenous power is native to each of us, it has no attached liability whereas surrogate power has a liability to those who assigned the power.

When you borrow money, you assign power to the lender.  In turn, the lender becomes a surrogate power towards you.  Proverbs 22:7 states "The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower [is] servant to the lender."  Money is at the center of surrogate power.  Debt promotes surrogate power and as we leverage up our balance sheet, we continue to assign power to the creditors.  When you move to debt-free living, you take back that power and you begin to operate with indigenous power again.  You are free to bless others without the surrogate powers limiting your actions.  Bondage is removed and you are set free.

U.S. Currency (or Federal Reserve Notes) is a surrogate power to gold.  Gold has no liability attached to it though the U.S. Dollar has tremendous levels of debt attached to it.  Over the last 37 years, the U.S. Dollar has enjoyed surrogate power and the power of perception.  The U.S. had productivity and growth to support the debt it issued just as we as individuals could support debt as long as we had a job to service that debt.

In 1776, the framers of the Constitution were tired of the surrogate power of England controlling their destiny.  They began a historical journey of recapturing indigenous power.  This quest would cost many lives but there was a corporate revelation that this surrogate power could no longer subvert their unalienable rights.

The children of Israel were given indigenous power by Our Heavenly Father.  He created a Theocracy and they lived by His Commandments and had no surrogate power extracting their rights and wealth from them.  But that did not last long:

1Samuel 8:7-8

7  And the LORD said to Samuel, "Heed the voice of the people in all that they say to you; for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them.

8  "According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt, even to this day–with which they have forsaken Me and served other gods–so they are doing to you also.

As the people served other gods, they rejected Our Heavenly Father and asked Samuel for a king (1 Samuel 8:6) to judge them as other nations.  They were assigning their power to a king which turned out to be King Saul, the Pentecostal King.  They wanted to sin and have a man judge them rather than GOD.  This path never turns out well.  Surrogate power ultimately puts us into bondage, extracts our resources, and exploits our gifts.  When this happens, we only have a limited ability to be a blessing to others.  We ultimately move into survival mode.

Each of us is one revelation away from a return to indigenous power.  The bondage of debt can be broken with one idea.  Sickness and disease are subject to The Creator’s power of healing.  Revelation comes from above and to tap into this power, we must repent or turn away from the earthly wisdom and pursue our relationship with the Heavenly Father.  We must spend time in our closet (or booth):

Matthew 6:6
But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

Our rewards will include recapturing the power we assigned to others.
