“There is no new thing under the sun!” Because, That which has been is that which shall be, and that which has been done is that which shall be done.” (cp. Ecclesiastes 1:9).
Seems that what is out there is waiting to be rediscovered and re-implemented. For this discussion reflection, and action are the tools required to make that teeter totter tilt back and forth.
This writer has often wondered what will it take to get the American citizenry, to tilt that teeter totter back into the peoples favor. It will happen, when enough people realize that our government nationally, and locally does not serve the best interest of common folk.
Our government whether seated in Washington, or in our state capitals are governments for the few, who are rich and powerful.
Against the many, who are struggling to secure a fair living. It’s an unending battle to secure social, and economic justice through out America.
Those struggles are against the rich and powerful, who have the money to support political candidates, who will keep the poor, poor, and make sure that the rich stay rich and get richer!
American politicians regardless of party affiliation are content to allow misery, and suffering to occur among the general population.
Of course there are exceptions in Senator Bernie Sanders and Representative Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, and a few others. But there just aren’t enough of them in the Senate or House to tilt that teeter-totter in laboring peoples favor!
This writer could list a litany of struggles that need attention. For now just one, which is the re-calculation as to how rents are determined for residents in so called low income affordable housing.
This writer has argued with HUD that rents should be based upon renters income and not area’s median income. Which for his area is $60,200. Renters live off of social security and pensions. And from those figures, that’s how rents should be determined.
Bureaucrats within HUD agree, and have said that have attempted to get congress to make changes more in accordance with the aforementioned.
Saying that housing corporate conglomerates have lots of money to push back against any attempts to alter how rents are determined.
Meaning retaining power in congress is more important the fair rental determinations. Therefore that teeter-totter is tilted against renters in serious need of affordable housing.
And guess, who is a power broker in the scheme of so called low income housing? One of laboring peoples many enemies, The Internal Revenue Service!
According to the writer of Ecclesiastes these struggles have always been with humanity.
Time passes, and they need to be recycled. And returned to humanity with a new appearance.
Because the palace of greed, which is shall be. Always waiting to be rediscovered and re-implemented. It’s the universal law of darkness.
The chief architect comes from the underworld. A world few know about.
Rediscovered and implemented, as a millennium journeys through it allotted decades.
Dressed up by modernity, to inflict continued social, and economic injustices Remember there is nothing new under the sun.
One persons blessing is another persons curse. For this discussion this writer is the curse. Advocating that Jesus the Christ was, and is a socialist.
Based upon these words by Jesus Himself. “I was hungry and you gave Me food to eat. I was thirsty, and you gave Me drink. I was a stranger, and you took Me in. I was naked, and you clothed Me. I was sick and you visited Me. I was in prison, and you came to visit Me.
Then His audience asked, “When did we do what you said about us?” Jesus replied, “Having done it for anyone, is the same as having done for me.” (cp. Matthew 25:35-40).
Talk about fury! It’s a fair assumption that 99.9 percent of church palaces of nothingness will rail against against such declarations. That’s because they are theater’s of entertainment. Or adherents, of social inequality and economic justice.
Jesus tagged them for what they were raving wolves behaving like sheep. The Christ warning, beware! (cp. Matthew 7:15-16),
Sometime in the future this age will cease to exist. One shenanigan after another caused by the aforementioned as it marches through the centuries will cause Divine Providence to say enuf is enuf!
Then this shock will occur among many, Knighted Hierarchical Theist and their faithful congregants.
Then Jesus said to His disciples, “Assuredly, I say to you that it is hard for a rich person to enter the kingdom of heaven. It’s easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God” Then the disciples being astonished and asked? “Who then can be saved?” (cp. Matthew 19:23-25).
The discussion Jesus had with His allies had nothing to do with wealth. But everything to do with attitude.
With Jesus attitude was intertwined with a willingness; to sacrifice what one has, for the benefit of others, without any expectations about rewards or recognition. All of which was exemplified from, Matthew 25:35-40).
In response to the question, who can be saved? Jesus said, “Redemption is impossible other than through God.” (cp. Matthew 19:26).
So it was then, and nothing has changed. For those who can relate to His redemptive power through experience, Blessings!
Time is precious, and the future is unknown. Once death has captured us redemption is no longer available. It’s not wise to flirt with chance.
Join the redeemed, by following the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10. Then notice verses 11-13, all of which creates the universality so many seek. And if our paths don’t cross in this world, they will in the next.
And they will be happy times, free from the anxieties of this world. Which will get worse; as humanity travels, to the end of this current age.
