Chapter 60 - Usury as a Weapon of Control and Enslavement

Moses said:

Moses  "For the Lord thy God blesseth thee, as he promised thee: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, but thou shalt not borrow; and thou shalt reign over many nations, but they shall not reign over thee." [Deuteronomy 15:6]

The Book of Deuteronomy was written by Moses and is a collection of his sermons.

The version in the 'Jubilee Bible 2000' is written slightly differently:

Moses  "For when the Lord thy God has blessed thee, as he promised thee, thou shalt lend unto many Gentiles, but thou shalt not borrow; and thou shalt rule over many Gentiles, but they shall not rule over thee." [Deuteronomy 15:6]

   Christians are Gentiles. If you are Christian, expect to be dominated. The domination will be through Usury. Expect that you will be dominated with debt as will your nation.

The root of the word 'Lend' in Hebrew is closely connected with the word for "slave". [601][600]

De Tobia by St. Ambrose (340-397)

"From him, it says there, demand usury, whom you rightly desire to harm, against whom weapons are lawfully carried. Upon him usury is legally imposed. On him whom you cannot easily conquer in war, you can quickly take vengeance with the hundredth. From him exact usury whom it would not be a crime to kill. He fights without a weapon who demands usury: he who revenges himself upon an enemy, who is an interest collector from his foe, fights without a sword. Therefore, where there is the right of war, there also is the right of usury." [602]

Andy Chalkley  My translation: Demand usury from those you wish to harm and control. Ensure that you carry the guns and they are unarmed. Create laws that enable you to practice usury on those you wish to harm. Even those you cannot conquer with war, can be harmed by taking interest. Extract usury from those you have the power to kill. To lend at interest is to fight without a weapon. When you are an interest collector against your foe, you are fighting without a sword. Where you can establish the ability to wage war, you can establish the ability to make destitute by usury.

The Twelfth Flaw of Economics

   The definition of usury is incomplete. It should be: "Usury is the practice of lending money and expecting a greater amount in return such that unpayable debts occur."

Pett's Commentary on the Bible

Moses  "For Yahweh your God will bless you, as he promised you, and you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow, and you shall rule over many nations, but they shall not rule over you." [Deuteronomy 15:6]

Indeed if they were truly faithful to Him and His covenant, and laid up their tithes as Yahweh decreed, Yahweh would so bless them that as a nation they would never need to borrow, while at the same time having so much in abundance that they would be in a position to lend to other nations. They would store up abundance of wealth for themselves. They would be creditors not debtors. Furthermore because of their wealth they would rule over many nations, for wealth brings power, but none would ever rule over them. This was the glittering future promised under the kingly rule of Yahweh that would follow true response and obedience. [600]

Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers

Thou Shalt lend. - The root of the word in Hebrew is closely connected with the word for "slave." "The borrower is servant to the lender" (Proverbs 22:7). [600]

The Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

'thou shalt reign' has references at: 28:13; 1 Kings 4:21,24; 2 Chronicles 9:26; Ezra 4:20; Nehemiah 9:27 [600]

Moses  "Of a foreigner thou mayest exact it." Admission to all the religious privileges of the Israelites was freely granted to pagan proselytes, though this spiritual incorporation did not always imply an equal participation of civil rights and privileges (Leviticus 25:44; Jeremiah 34:14 : cf. 1 Chronicles 22:2; 2 Chronicles 2:17). [600]

Moses  "May nations serve you and peoples bow down to you." [Genesis 27-29 New International Version]

Moses  "And I will send hornets before thee, which shall drive out the Hivite, the Canaanite, and the Hittite, from before thee. ... By little and little I will drive them out from before thee, until thou be increased, and inherit the land." [Exodus 23:27-9 King James Bible]

Andy Chalkley  What joyous times. The genocide for fun! Legalised genocide. Genocide to obtain land. Replace the word 'Canaanites' with 'Palestinians'.

Moses  "Do not defile yourselves in any of these ways, because this is how the nations that I am going to drive out before you became defiled." [Leviticus 18:24 New International Version]

Andy Chalkley  We need to be careful of this religious writing in the old bible. This may be referring to the breaking of moral standards in enemy populations. The modern equivalent would be to: Encourage marriage breakdown. Encourage promiscuity. Encourage borrowing. Encourage conflict between different racial and cultural groups.

Moses  "However, you may purchase male or female slaves from among the foreigners who live among you. You may also purchase the children of such resident foreigners, including those who have been born in your land. You may treat them as your property, passing them on to your children as a permanent inheritance." [Leviticus 25:44-46]

Andy Chalkley  Is this next chapter from Moses currently being acted out in Gaza? Is this being acted out in Western Nations through usury, trash media and porn?

Moses:

Moses  Deuteronomy 7 (Jubilee Bible 2000)

  1. Moses When the Lord thy God shall bring thee into the land into which thou must enter to inherit it and has cast out many Gentiles before thee, the Hittite and the Girgashite and the Amorite and the Canaanite and the Perizzite and the Hivite and the Jebusite, seven nations greater and mightier than thou;
  2. Moses and when the Lord thy God shall deliver them before thee, thou shalt smite them and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them nor show mercy unto them.
  3. Moses Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son.
  4. Moses For they will turn away thy son from following me that they may serve other gods; and the anger of the Lord will be kindled upon you and destroy thee suddenly.
  5. Moses But thus shall ye deal with them: ye shall destroy their altars and break down their images and cut down their groves and burn their graven images in the fire.
  6. Moses For thou art a holy people unto the Lord thy God; the Lord thy God has chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, different from all the peoples that are upon the face of the earth.
  7. Moses Not because ye were more than the other peoples has the Lord desired you and chosen you; for ye were the fewest of all the peoples;
  8. Moses but because the Lord loved you and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, has the Lord brought you out with a mighty hand and ransomed you out of the house of slavery from the hand of Pharaoh, king of Egypt.
  9. Moses Know, therefore, that the Lord thy God, he is God, the faithful God, who keeps covenant and mercy with those that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations
  10. Moses and repays him that hates him to his face, to destroy him; he will not be slack to him that hates him; he will repay him to his face.
  11. Moses Keep, therefore, the commandments and statutes and rights, which I command thee this day, to do them.
  12. Moses And it shall come to pass, for having heard these rights and for having kept them by doing them that the Lord thy God shall keep the covenant with thee and the mercy which he swore unto thy fathers;
  13. Moses and he will love thee and bless thee and multiply thee; he will also bless the fruit of thy womb and the fruit of thy land, thy grain and thy wine and thine oil, the increase of thy cows and the flocks of thy sheep, in the land which he swore unto thy fathers to give thee.
  14. Moses Thou shalt be blessed above all peoples; there shall not be male or female barren among you or among your beasts.
  15. Moses And the Lord will take away from thee all sickness and will put none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which thou knowest, upon thee, but will lay them upon all those that hate thee.
  16. Moses And thou shalt consume all the peoples which the Lord thy God shall deliver thee; thine eye shall have no pity upon them; neither shalt thou serve their gods; for that will be a snare unto thee.
  17. Moses When thou shalt say in thy heart, These Gentiles are more than I; how can I dispossess them?
  18. Moses Do not be afraid of them; remember well what the Lord thy God did with Pharaoh and with all Egypt;
  19. Moses of the great trials which thine eyes saw and the signs and the wonders and the mighty hand and the outstretched arm, by which the Lord thy God brought thee out; so shall the Lord thy God do unto all the peoples of whose presence thou art afraid.
  20. Moses Moreover the Lord thy God will send the hornet among them until those that are left and hide themselves from thee are destroyed.
  21. Moses Thou shalt not faint before them; ...
  22. Moses And the Lord thy God will put out those Gentiles before thee little by little; thou may not consume them at once lest the beasts of the field increase upon thee.
  23. Moses But the Lord thy God shall deliver them before thee and shall destroy them with a mighty destruction until they are destroyed.
  24. Moses And he shall deliver their kings into thy hand, and thou shalt destroy their name from under heaven; no one shall be able to stand before thee until thou hast destroyed them.
  25. Moses The graven images of their gods ye shall burn in the fire; thou shalt not desire the silver or gold that is on them nor take it unto thee lest thou be snared therein; for it is an abomination to the Lord thy God.
  26. Moses Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine house lest thou become an anathema like it, but thou shalt utterly detest it, and thou shalt utterly abhor it; for it is anathema.

We really need to reject the old Testament and stand against those that might support it. It appears likely that this was the reason that Mohamed said his book was the only book and the previous ones should be forgotten. If there were any person in our nation that lived by these instructions of Moses, you should want them out quick smart. This is not a reasonable guide book, let alone an acceptable rule book.

The Fourteenth Flaw of Economics

   Usury has been and can be used as a weapon of war.

It appears to me that the Christians, which includes me, have been remarkably gullible. In simple terms, Jesus was telling us: "You are not doing things right, you need to start being nice to each other." We cannot assume that everyone is being good to us. We have a defense force for the nation, but we tend to use it to attack other countries on dubious grounds, but we do not use the defense force to prevent us from an internal takeover. An internal takeover would most effectively take place through the control of our finance institutions and the control of our media. Control of these two items would then allow control of: political parties, public opinion, voting habits of the people, voting habits of politicians and much more. The American 'Veterans Today' [www.veteranstoday.com] is very strong on this. This leads to the thought process that a military coup is not as bad as is made out. It may just be that a coup stops the monied manipulation of the political process. The coup in Thailand may have taken place to stop moneyed interests from usurping control. A democracy commonly reduces itself to a duopoly. The duopoly may have both parties controlled by the same mob. Tell-tell signs would include: A media that only talks about two political parties. Two political parties that rotate duty at the helm, but both support the debt banking system and both support every war against whoever the media portrays as the 'bad-guys'.

The world financial system may be portrayed as being too complex for mere mortals such as you and me, but hopefully I can help you see past that. The group of moneylenders, called bankers, have very kindly set up international banks. These international banks do not belong to any country and have a similar corporate structure to any other company or corporation in the world. These international banks also use double entry accounting to create money and debt, in equal quantities, at the time of making a loan. As the debts magnify with interest, the debts become unpayable. These corporations, masquerading as international banks, then demand that the nations in default, sell off the national assets to repay money that did not exist until it was lent. By this means, they are able to gain financial control of nations.

Whether you wish to accept that this is linked to biblical texts or not, is irrelevant. The risk of it continuing is too great for mankind. It is the same argument I use for global warming. Whether you believe global-warming is happening or not happening or global-warming is a natural cycle or man-made, is somewhat irrelevant. The risk of doing nothing is too great. The risk of falling into a trap created by the money people is also great. Global-warming invites greater efficiency. To use and consume less will be better for the planet. It is a similar argument for international banking. Debt, to unaccountable international companies, can build up to the extent that the banks can strip nations of their assets. This asset stripping will cause immense environmental degradation. This needs to be stopped. Stopping human enslavement will be a welcome secondary outcome. I don't mean to be harsh on humans, but they don't seem to be very decent to each other at the best of times. Stopping the debt will stop degradation which will fix most of the human exploitation at the same time.

Where it is possible to have human people believe some of this extreme writing in the first testament, it is possible to have whole groups of people intent on carrying out the actions proposed in the first testament. If you think religion can be kept out of economics, think again. Moses warned you. Jesus warned you. Mohamed warned you. I am warning you. Debt is not helpful, it is harmful in more ways than you can imagine.
