Chapter 8: 100 Years of the Fed, Part 3
Mystery Babylon and the Stone Kingdom, part 22—The Fed’s Loose Money and a Spiritual Work
I ended the previous blog post, “The sad truth is that the Federal Reserve is at the very core of our economic and financial problems, and that is nothing to celebrate.”
Let me give one more example, this one is from the National Journal online and it is entitled: “Palin Assails Fed’s Quantitative Easing.” It was written by Clifford Marks and is dated Monday, November 8, 2010. [The original hyperlink no longer works. Evidently, the National Journal took it down.]
Quoting Mr. Marks: To the chorus of foreign finance ministers questioning the Federal Reserve’s second round of quantitative easing, you can now add a figure less often called upon to parse monetary policy: former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
According to prepared remarks of a speech she plans to give today in Phoenix, Palin calls on Fed chairman Ben Bernanke to “cease and desist” on the Fed’s new effort—commonly known as QE2—to create $600 billion and pump it into the U.S. economy over the next several months.
“Where will all this money printing on an unprecedented scale take us?” Palin asks, according to excerpts published by National Review Online. “Do we have any guarantees that QE2 won’t be followed by QE3, 4, and 5, until eventually—inevitably—no one will want to buy our debt anymore?…
All this pump priming will come at a serious price. And I mean that literally: everyone who ever goes out shopping for groceries knows that prices have risen significantly over the past year or so. Pump priming would push them even higher.” [end of his quote of Palin; the reporter then comments:]
Inflation has actually been quite low in recent months, and deflation fears abounded earlier in 2010. In the past 12 months, the consumer price index rose just 1.1 percent—notably below the norm for previous years.”
Let us pause there. What this reporter either does not know or is simply lying about is that the federal government has been fudging the numbers in the consumer price index for years. If prices are rising in certain sectors of the economy, they change the rules on how they calculate the inflation index. However, I agree with Sarah Palin, and all you have to do is keep your own notes or journal and compare prices of food and other things from year to year. Now back to Mr. Marks’ article.
Quote: Palin joins not only the ranks of foreign finance ministers such as Germany’s Wolfgang Schaeuble and China’s Zhu Guangyao who have criticized the Fed’s decision last week to initiate QE2, but she also joins a growing chorus of conservative voices—particularly in the tea party movement—who have attacked the Fed’s loose-money policy as well as its bailout efforts during the financial crisis.
Rep. Ron Paul, the Texas Republican who made an unsuccessful run for president, wrote a hot-selling book called End the Fed and pushed legislation to expand congressional audits of the Fed. The Maine Republican Party adopted a platform that called for ending the Fed. More establishment Republicans are criticizing the central bank, too.
“Diluting the value of the dollar by continually increasing the supply of money poses an incalculable risk,” said Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind., who chairs the House Republican Conference. “Instead, Congress needs to embrace pro-growth fiscal policies to stimulate our economy rather than masking our fundamental problems by artificially creating inflation. The American people deserve a government that protects the purchasing power of the dollar.”
While foreign ministers have focused on the how Fed policy would affect the relative prices of imports and exports, Palin zeroed in on the effect a weaker dollar would have on consumer prices—particularly for oil. She noted oil prices were at six-month highs, though they also continue to be far lower than they were before the financial crisis hit.
“We shouldn’t be playing around with inflation. It’s not for nothing Reagan called it ’as violent as a mugger, as frightening as an armed robber, and as deadly as a hit man,’” her prepared comments say. “The Fed’s pump priming addiction has got our small businesses running scared, and our allies worried.”
In one of the previous blogs, I told you how the fast pace of current events has impelled me to forego my plan to continue teaching about the Roman Empire as the fourth great empire of Daniel’s vision.
Instead, I brought to your attention how (1) the Federal Reserve System has decided to further monetize the national debt by a process they call QE II, which means it is the second round of quantitative easing.
As one writer put it, it is like Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke is playing monopoly and he simply reaches under the table and deals himself more monopoly money. That would tend to greatly upset other players in the game; namely, China, Japan, Germany, France, Russia, etc.
Then (2) I called your attention to the fact that the modern corporate descendants of the Fed’s founders held a meeting at Jekyll Island, Georgia to essentially celebrate 100 years of their success over America. That is not the way the lying Establishment media portrayed it, of course, but remember my allusions to the movie, Bull Durham, and Ohio State (now former) football Coach Jim Tressel. Their coverage of QE II certainly is a crock of “Bull.”
At this point, then, I want to simply recount to my audience a spiritual work that some of our Stone Kingdom Fellowship in the Atlanta area took part in back in July of 2010. As it happens, we are now almost exactly ten years beyond that point. “So what?” some might wonder, “what does it matter if it is nine, ten or twenty years beyond?”
For those readers who have studied biblical principles of timing, a ten-year period is a huge flashing light. It is what we have come to call “the Hezekiah factor.” That is a reference to Hezekiah, king of Judah, who was told by Isaiah that the king’s illness was terminal. King Hezekiah prayed, crying out to Yahweh for healing.
Isaiah got the answer from Yahweh, telling the king, that not only would he heal him, and He would deliver the city of Jerusalem from the Assyrian armies who were preparing to invade, but that Hezekiah would be given an additional 15 years of life. Hezekiah had some doubts and essentially said to Isaiah, “I hear what you’re saying but what sign from Yahweh will you give me so that I will know for sure that this will come to pass?”
2 Kings 20:9 And Isaiah said, This sign shalt thou have of the LORD [Yahweh], that the LORD will do the thing that he hath spoken: shall the shadow go forward ten degrees, or go back ten degrees?
10 And Hezekiah answered, It is a light thing for the shadow to go down ten degrees: nay, but let the shadow return backward ten degrees.
11 And Isaiah the prophet cried unto the LORD: and he brought the shadow ten degrees backward, by which it had gone down in the dial of Ahaz.
Of course, the shadow in this incident is referring to a sundial—used for millennia as a device to measure time. For further details on “the Hezekiah factor,” I refer the reader to Dr. Stephen Jones’ seminal work on biblical chronology, Secrets of Time, available on his website.
When I set out this past January to begin blogging my enormous Bible study series, Mystery Babylon and the Stone Kingdom, I had no conscious awareness of, nor did I realize this portion would coincide with the Hezekiah factor until about a week or so ago.
And thus, the fact that it just happens to coincide with the Hezekiah factor of the spiritual work we did regarding the Fed in Atlanta is huge. Coupled with what President Trump is now in the process of doing regarding the Fed means that our heavenly Father is answering our prayers of ten years ago exactly on time—Hezekiah factor timing! So here is an abbreviated account of what happened ten years ago.
One morning in approximately late May I was in that halfway state between sleep and fully awake. I had an experience which I believe was a leading from our heavenly Father to perform a spiritual work. It was not a dream, nor a vision, nor an audible voice, but as I became fully awake, I simply knew that I had been directed to do this work—a word of knowledge, if you will.
1 Corinthians 12:8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
The specifics were not defined at that time. I only knew that it involved going to the location of the Federal Reserve Bank in Atlanta.
A couple of weeks previously, I had commenced a Bible lecture series entitled Mystery Babylon and the Stone Kingdom. At some point in the series, I will provide a detailed examination from a biblical perspective of the financial control wielded by the current rulers of what the Bible calls “Mystery Babylon the Great.”
In Great Britain, it manifests as the Bank of England. In the United States, it goes under the name the Federal Reserve System or simply, the Fed. The Fed consists of twelve branches of which the key branch is, and always has been, the one located in New York City. The current U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner is the former president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
I did not receive any knowledge that there was any particular time frame involved as to exactly when we were to do the work. Little did I know how the specific date would soon be clearly indicated.
Therefore, I decided it was already too close to our next Stone Kingdom-Atlanta Fellowship meeting for me to try to arrange all the details—and besides, I had not been given any details as to exactly what I was supposed to do.
Let me insert a disclaimer at this point: Although I use the pronoun “I” in this narrative, I knew from the start that it was not about me personally, nor about those who would join me in the work.
It is not about any of us personally, only that we were to do this spiritual work for Christ and His (not James Bruggeman’s) Stone Kingdom.
My ministry was given the name Stone Kingdom by divine Providence more than two (now three) decades ago, but this ministry is only symbolic of what the real (and to this day, hidden) Stone Kingdom is doing and will do.
Who are “the hidden ones” who comprise the true Stone Kingdom? Hold that thought… It became clear that we of the nominal and visible Stone Kingdom Ministries were to have some spiritual part to play as an anticipation of the actual fulfillment of a key prophecy in Daniel.
Daniel 2:34 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.
The work had to be done by me and those associated with this ministry because it is the Stone Kingdom which smites the image [representing Mystery Babylon] on its feet . Thus, to repeat, it is not about me personally or this ministry, but what it represents corporately—the true Stone Kingdom.
God’s Stone Kingdom is that which will replace the governments of men—the world government of Mystery Babylon—with a divine government which will be headed by Jesus Christ and administered by Him and his group of priest-kings known in the Bible as the “overcomers.”
The overcomers will consist not of all Christians, but only of a small portion of believers who have been chosen and predestinated by the Father. If the overcomers lived in days or ages past (e.g., David, Daniel, Abraham, Joseph, Peter, Paul, John, etc.), they will be raised from the dead to join the living overcomers who will be instantaneously transformed into incorruptible immortal bodies.
This is the first resurrection. It is the event the church mistakenly calls the rapture, and together, these overcomers will serve directly under the King of kings to commence the global government of Jesus, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. Of course, we who recently performed the spiritual work strive to be in that number, even as Paul the apostle did (cf. Philippians 3:11-14).
When I phoned my friend Ron to share the revelation with him, he asked when I had in mind to perform the work and I explained that since I was given no word on that and it seemed too close in time to arrange it for June, that we would do it during my July trip to Atlanta.
“And what date would that be?” asked Ron.
“Well, I will arrive on Saturday, July 10th,” I replied, “and we will hold our SK-Atlanta Fellowship meeting on July 11th. So, we could do the work on either day.”
“So, in other words,” Ron observed, “you could be doing this work on the 10th day of the 7th month? And what day is that?”
“Oh, my heavens,” I replied. I was astonished with the sudden illumination of the significance of that date. “It is the Israelite Day of Atonement, which every 49th year becomes the Day of Jubilee!” I realized immediately that through our brother in Minnesota we had now been given the precise date for the work.
The Mystery Babylonian system has at its core the subjugation of the people through an economic system of debt bondage, i.e., the Fed. Because of our national disobedience to Father’s law—our Father, Yahweh Almighty, had sold us (U.S.) into that “Babylonian Captivity” with the creation of the Federal Reserve System in 1913/14.
At some point, however, the sentence has been served and we are to be released from the bondage. In the ancient Babylonian Captivity, it was a 70-year sentence. Unfortunately, the present Mystery Babylonians—like the Pharaoh of Moses’ time—do not want to let the slaves go free.
The laws of Jubilee involve the cancellation of all debt and it was mandated to be proclaimed and implemented in Israel on the 10th day of the 7th month every 49th year, resulting in the 50th year being a Year of Release. (These are topics we have covered in detail in audio lectures over many years.)
At our June meetings in Tennessee and Atlanta, I told the Fellowships what I believed the Lord wanted done and invited those who felt led to do so, to join us on July 10, 2010 at the Federal Reserve building in Atlanta.
Over the next couple of weeks, the details of the work became more and more clear. Even the day before, I was expecting that only two or three would actually join me. You see, almost all of our Atlanta Fellowship live quite a distance outside the metro Atlanta area and it would entail an overnight stay—not simply a matter of a 20-minute drive for them.
But I also knew that the paucity of people is never a problem in the work of the spiritual realm. The actual numbers involved are always significant—if we can discern their meaning as applied at the time—but we know that whether the number is large or small that has no effect on the success of the work.
If we are obedient to the Father’s leading, success is always guaranteed! More on this spiritual work in the next installment.
