WWJS? What Would Jesus Say about The Federal Reserve, Materialism and Ron Paul?

UPDATED FOR CLARITY!

The way I read it, Jesus was a political activist of the first degree who challenged the wrong doings and injustices being perpetuated by those in authority. Maybe it's time we brought Jesus into the fray and started asking these FOUR SPECIFIC QUESTIONS.

WWJS about:
1. U.S. Foreign Policy
2. The Federal Reserve
3. Materialism
4. Ron Paul

He made his position clear...

when he whipped the moneychangers and drove them from the temple.

Radical Jesus Says:"Forget About the Ten Commandments."

"We do not need these commandments any longer. Replace them with the following two rules of living."

Mt 22:36 “[Jesus], which is the great commandment in the law?” And he said to him, ’You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the law and the prophets.”

Application of these two Commandments and WWJS:

1. Foreign Policy: "Love your neighbors, and they should be loving their neighbors! If these people cannot stop their senseless wars, then I will put a stop to them once and for all, but my solution will not be liked by either side. Woe unto the enablers of war as well. You provide others the means to wage war, while you sit on the sidelines and watch, as if your hands were clean from the dirt upon them. You are worse than those who fight."

2. Federal Reserve: "They should be looking out for the people and should not be stealing from them. A dire fate awaits them if they continue on their present path and do not repent of their greed. Justice for them shall be swift."

3. Materialism: "This has no place in this world. There is no reason for materialism, if all are caring for one another. Materialism and love are directly opposed to one another and cannot co-exist. Love begins by giving away something of value to someone in need, who needs that very thing of value. If anyone can do this, materialism will never take root again in this world."

4. Ron Paul: "You, like the Mother Teresa, the Dalai Lama, and Gandhi, have been one of the few who has remained true to these two commandments. You have not been seduced by power, greed, money, nor pleasure. You have my blessing for continuing to be the voice of reason in the halls of power and to be an example and thorn in the side of the hypocrites residing there."

What would Jesus say, my opinion:

1. U.S. Foreign Policy:

Revelation 13:11-14 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. 12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, 14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

2. The Federal Reserve

Proverbs 22:7 The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.
Exodus 22:25 If thou lend money to any of my people that is poor by thee, thou shalt not be to him as an usurer, neither shalt thou lay upon him usury.
...Psalm 15:5 He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.
Proverbs 28:8 He that by usury and unjust gain increaseth his substance, he shall gather it for him that will pity the poor.

Ezekiel 18:12-13 Hath oppressed the poor and needy, hath spoiled by violence, hath not restored the pledge, and hath lifted up his eyes to the idols, hath committed abomination, 13 Hath given forth upon usury, and hath taken increase: shall he then live? he shall not live: he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon him.

3. Materialism:

Matthew 6:25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

Psalm 73:11-12 And they say, How doth God know? and is there knowledge in the most High? 12 Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches.

Ecclesiastes 5:14-16 But those riches perish by evil travail: and he begetteth a son, and there is nothing in his hand. 15 As he came forth of his mother's womb, naked shall he return to go as he came, and shall take nothing of his labour, which he may carry away in his hand. 16 And this also is a sore evil, that in all points as he came, so shall he go: and what profit hath he that hath laboured for the wind?

4. Ron Paul

Proverbs 11:3 he integrity of the upright shall guide them: but the perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them.

Proverbs 19:1 Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his lips, and is a fool.

Proverbs 20:7 The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him.

Well said, Amen!

Nice to have you here, Stravinsk!

Jesus ran out the money

Jesus ran out the money changers from the temple.

Your right gltskline Aren't

we supposed to try to become more christlike? Let's run those money changers out! I don't think we are supposed to sit on our duffs and wait for him to return. If so what was the first lesson for? Think he might be hoping some of us have learned something? Then he might come and be with the ones who at least tried to act on what thay learned from him.

Jesus returns once each person, through their own efforts,

transmutes (completely overcomes) their lower selves and achieves full soul illumination(their inner 'flame' ignites and this is the 'Christos', becoming 'Christ'. Jesus said, "you will be like me and more"). Once we achieve this, we are completely in harmony with Divine Law placing us entirely in service to others, therefore a vehicle of God.

The temporal powers over humanity for all these millenia, do not wish to see us achieve any of this. They would lose their slaves and this threatens their 'hold' over us.

I feel they are shocked to realized how many are currently and will soon achieve this. I personally believe once a 'critical mass' of people on earth(144,000) at the same time, through their own efforts achieve this 'death' of the lower self and become 'Christ-like'), this 'net' over humanity and the world is over. The powers that be will not be able to withstand such forces.

Have you noticed the number of zombie movies lately? Boy, they are desperate. Truth is, instead of the living dead and their 'vampiric' ways, the 'dead' will become 'alive' and live.

This has got to be the greatest fear of those that pull the control strings around our world. They are throwing all they have right now at us through the degradation of media, government, terror and death. I have a feeling it just ain't going to work for them. The end of the cosmic cycle is here now, we are living it. It reaches its zenith at the solstice of 2012.

Nothing they can possibly do about that so they are gorging themselves with ultimate decadence and orgy of death and destruction. Nothing they can do about this. They must 'transmute' themselves or they will perish by their own doing.

Remember the parable of the separation of the wheat and the tares? Think what this means.

Dear Anisha

Being a neophyte to the precepts of Divine Law, I have so many questions. Maybe you could do an introductory overview sometimes and explain how Jesus fits within. Until then, can you expound a bit on the cosmic cycle and what can be expected after 2012?

In response to the cosmic cycle ending 2012.

Not only does our solar system orbit around our 'little' sun, but our entire galaxy is slowly orbiting around a huge 'central sun' called Alcyone deep within the seven sisters stars and deeper within the Milky way.

This takes approximately 26,000 earth years for our galaxy to make a complete cycle or as some call, a cosmic 'minute'.

Keep in mind, while this is occurring, there are cycles like this throughout the Universe ( and subsequently similar cycles going on minutely within the atomic structure of all our beings).

This is how the 12 houses of the zodiac are divided in the heavens by those who study the magnetic affects of these cycles upon each human being known as, Astrologers.

BTW, Astrology may have been a carry-over from Atlantis (for those who imagine this) or perhaps from 'wise men' from the east otherwise known as the mysterious 'Magi', if your mind refuses to consider such a thing.

Anyway, according to the Mayan calendar and the East Indian Vedic calendar, this orbit comes to a complete close and begins anew on the Solstice of 2012.

Meanwhile, astrologically, we are entering the next 'house' of the zodiac called, Aquarius, depicted as a man carrying a heavy jug of water. Many say that there will be a 'second coming' of Christ. Some expect Jesus to actually physically 'return' to our messed up world and 'fix' it. There is so much conjecture on this.

That is fine because each of us must discern this meaning for ourselves. It certainly does not matter what I say here that is for sure. These are simply ideas I have studied for myself for forty years of wondering and feeling there is more to us than what 'they' tell us that is for sure.

I, for one, feel that each of us that 'choose' to do the work and try to live Jesus' teachings sooner or later will achieve some degree of soul consciousness enough to do a lot of good in this world of ours.

In my mind, the 'end of the world as we know it' has to occur. This is not anything supernatural or prophetic, this is just common sense!

Just take a look empirically at our country and this world. There is an economic 'black hole' or vacuum being created by printing 'unsound' money. Whether wittingly or unwittingly, this serves to enslave each of us and all our future generations to be the unspoken terms, or 'collateral', of these 'quadrillions'. What they have committed is an egregious attempt to circumvent God's Divine Laws. Dr. Paul speaks to this each day! Of course he would never speak of such things like 'God's Divine Laws', or he would be severely ridiculed and even lose credibility in this current 'Anti-God' climate. So he does what he can and he is awesome.

I believe these folks partaking in this ' negative creation' can be called 'Anti-Christ'. Why? Because it is a result of what one becomes when they hone their lower selves to that which is NOT LIFE and have no desire to live differently. Equally, those that become 'Christed' are simply the opposite. Basically, good people.

When Jesus walked the earth, that was the beginning of the Age of Pisces. Each 'age' lasts about 2,200 years. The Age of Pisces was characterized as the age of 'faith' or 'belief'.

However, as we now enter Aquarius, this mentality is clearly shifting. We no longer accept things at face value anymore. We are curious about the truth of things. This new age we are now entering is characterized by 'personal responsibility'. Hence, freedom is attained by individual effort to overcome the burden of our carnal lower self.

There are many speculations at to what will occur at that time, 2012. Some of these speculations are fear based and unfounded. Like the Nostradamus on History channel last week.

I felt that was sensationalizing something in the future and impulsing people to be in a state of panic and fear. I find this irresponsible of those creating these programs, unless of course it is deliberate.

But if you are like me, you will pay attention to indigenous people like Native Americans, Peruvian Qero tribe, Mayans, Maoris etc. they all speak of this time. The Qero for example call the period we now experience, 'Patchakuti', which means life is upside down. The time when all world systems dysfunction and at some point we begin again.

If we try to live the teachings of Jesus, this will surely make our transition into our 'new world' less stressful for ourselves and all others.

Intriging!

Back in the 60's there was a song called "Age of Aquarius", it was so happy and great. I hope the new age turns out to be like the song!

I also saw that history channel piece on the Mayans and now wondering if they stopped their calender at the 2012 winter solstice simply because the cycle started over again at that point and they saw no reason to repeat themselves.

PS - For those veteran Daily Paulers, Anisha is fairly new to our community but is well versed in some philosophical studies that were also embraced by people like Thomas Paine and Ben Franklin. I believe many here will be most receptive to this body of thinking and philosophy.

this is true. :)

this is true. :)

Salvation is not an action

Salvation is not an action of man. It is the action of God.

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
(Eph 2:8-9)

Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
(Rom 5:1-2)

this is true. but our

this is true.

but our understanding of this passage is VERY different.

we save ourselves. what do i mean by this??

'we-- our personality' DO NOT manifest ANYTHING -- 'our god does'.

yeshua said it differently... 'the father within him' did the work. i personally don't like the male reference so i don't use it. ram uses it too sometimes. there is too much female bashing and subjugation in christianity ... that was never yeshua's intent. (as an aside -- the female bashing was jehovah's intent. he HATES women. anything you see in the bible with an harsh tone towards women --that was courtesy of jehovah. i have words for that... but they aren't appropriate here!) the only kudos our personality deserves is the willingness to do the focus work. that's it. the glory is owed entirely to god -- our own god -- not any god 'out there' somewhere.

but let me clarify the definitions i go by. (i got from ramtha)

"not your own doing" --- who does 'your own' refer to??

who is god?

who is jesus?

according to what i believe, jesus was a kick @ss dude who came here to demonstrate to us what we are ourselves capable of doing --- not to be worshipped. admired, yes. frankly, i wish yeshua sent out runners like ram does. worshipping christians need a good smack up side the head because they ARE greater than what they are doing. well-- actually let me re-phrase that -- the @ssholes who put the bible together and did the tweaking need a good smack up side the head. (but ~whatever~ i will just breathe deeply, drink wine, and go 'walk' it!!) who sent yeshua and the story behind his genetics is another really trippy cool rabbit hole.

everyone is a 'god'. ramtha calls us all 'forgotten gods' because we don't know how to use our brains properly.

its rather embarrasing. we use less than 10% of our brain AND our genetics. yes genetics are totally important. yes you can change your genetics. you just have to change your brain. yes you can do that too.

we ALL have the potential of doing what yeshua ben joseph accomplished. christianity likes to leave that "little" (little ---HA HA!) part out though because it makes it easier to control the masses with.

and yes-- from the top of the organization -- it was decided to control the masses. the masses can't handle the whole truth, they say. (sound familiar?!!) why do you think some books were excluded from the bible?? ALL the ones written by women were. ALL the ones talking about reincarnation were. any book that shared information that gave power to the INDIVIDUAL were removed. given that you are in a liberty movement... that ought to creep you out, don't you think?

now don't go have a 'crisis in faith' on me!!! jesus is still a cool dude. just drink more red wine! :)

the fact that CHRISTianity includes the old testament in the bible is a clue. yeshua was here to thwart jehovah. jehovah HATES yeshua and wants him dead. so you have to ask... what's the deal with including the old testiment in the bible? especially since yeshua spoke out against jehovah, the money changers (the old nwo).

yeshua said it himself... 'these things you shall do and greater'.

christianity doesn't like that. well tough sh!t.

i've seen what i can do with a little training and i've seen what the advanced students can do and its AMAZING.

its just all about the training.

who are 'we'? we're a holy spirit who has taken up a physical body.

this body has a brain. us --- our holy spirit operates this body via that brain. it connects through the oldest part of the brain -- the cerebellum.

who is the 'you' that passage is referring to??? it is the personality.

what is the personality?? the personality is housed in the neocortex of the brain. which happens to be the newest part of the brain btw...but that is another conversation.

the personality is biodegradable. this part creeps us mortal humans out.

you can also dramatically change which neurological clusters you light up in your brain. you can COMPLETELY forget something -- amnesia -- that happens when you disconnect neurons. it ain't going with you when you die AND you're gonna get a new one when you reincarnate again.

the basics of manifestation -- be it a new attitude or an item in your life (car, house, job)

the frontal lobe is nearly the most important part of the brain.

(as an aside... why do you think in psychiatry... they did frontal lobotomies, do electric shock 'therapy', and now have drugs to destroy your pituitary and pineal glands... and in medical science they will take out your thyroid. --HORRIBLE!!!!!!!! if you're gonna try creating your reality daily -- you need all your key parts and you need them in working condition.)

why do you think yeshua would sometimes refer to 'a house undivided'??? what do you think that was??? it was an analogy. it is referring to your brain.

structurally our brain is divided. look up the 'corpus callosum'. the reason for that is another creepy rabbit hole. if anyone actually wants to know --study Miceal Ledwith's work. (former catholic priest and also a very advanced rse student) but fyi... if you're christian -- you WILL be disturbed.

how do you get your brain to function 'undivided'?? training. ramtha's c&e and 'the neighborhood walk' are the best techniques.

christ consciousness -- EVERYONE has that in them. EVERYONE. yes ... EVEN hitler, bush, and cheney... god help us! :)

how do i know this is true? i've seen it MANY times and experienced it many times.

i know a student who was in a collision with a semi and had severe brain damage -- the entire student body did a focus on her. she was able to come to an event shortly after and her brain was completely healed at an event where the focus was on ram's technique 'bluebody'.

i know students who have healed themselves of medically incurable diseases -- severe cancer, diabetes, heart defect...

i know tons of students who can raise their frequency so they disappear. yes, they go invisible.

i know of several students who have levitated. they aren't masters of it because they can't do it on command yet.

i know of several students who have bilocated. we almost have our first master of that.

i know of several students who have manifested something out of nothing right in front of them.

i know of a student who has brought a couple animals back to life.

it ain't HARD. just takes time and lots of concentrated focus. you can learn the philosophy in ram's book 'a beginners guide to creating reality'. you just have to learn the basic structures of the brain, their purpose, and the function of the endocrine system.

WHAT ABOUT THOSE missing years of jesus that you can't read about in the bible. hmmm. what do you think went on? where do ya think he was?

this is gonna creep you out but .... yeshua was a GREAT student of the occult. he was a student in the ancient mystery schools practically when he was a toddler. he had the brain, the mind, and the genetics to be great. NO WONDER he succeeded at passing his last test and became a christ. now you have to wonder... why would THEY leave THAT info out of the bible?? hmmm. control? power? greed? all of those.

as an aside -- there are toddlers in rse now who can find their card in the field --- ram's discipline 'fieldwork'. you have to find your card blindfolded using a focus technique. in the adult field... it is about the size of 2 football fields and there may be 2000-3000 cards on the fence. and you have to find your card blindfolded. there are TODDLERS kicking my @ss. :)

'these things YOU shall do and greater'. don't EVER forget that. :)

Yes, I am aware of these 'nonsensical verses' from the Bible

and I thank you for bringing these particular verses so we may scrutinize them well and even shine the light of truth upon them.

From what I understand, these are excellent examples of verses written by UN-enlightened men with devious intentions and selfish controlling interest, to keep 'the keys of the kingdom of heaven' not only from themselves, but also, not allow others to enter either.

These words you quoted clearly discourage and mislead those that wish to follow and practice the teachings of Jesus so they may live within Divine Law and develop themselves to a point where they achieve their own soul illumination.

The powers that control this world created 'the church' and forced converts to accept Jesus as a deity and worship him but certainly NEVER intended that their converts attempt in any way to live his teachings! That is why in most churches both Catholic and Protestant, you will notice the sickening depiction of this beautiful true teacher tortured and murdered so horribly on the cross.

This was clearly an admonition to unwary minds, don't even imagine that you can be like him otherwise this is what will happen to you too. When people asked why do you choose to depict such a visual horror? The church will use its 'plausible deniability' of, "Jesus died for all our sins". These controllers were certainly clever you have to hand it to them. They certainly knew what they were doing. All this has led to a kind of mass insanity. Personally, it disgusts me terribly.

You may wish to study the recent translations of the 114 sayings of Jesus from the Gospel of Thomas. These were from the scrolls found in 1945 in a cave near Egypt called the 'Nag Hamadi Library'. They were translated in 1977.

I would encourage everyone to study these words and compare them to what was written in the canonized versions of Mark, John, Luke and Matthew. See for yourself and certainly do not take my word for it.

When I see a line in the Bible that says, 'Lord Jesus Christ', I realize this is the hocus pocus adjective they(controlling interest) used to put Jesus on a pedestal to distract the masses from his admonitions to practice and live his words, not 'worship' them, which does nothing for a human being but keep them stupid slaves to the controlling interest in the world.

If you read Thomas you will never find any such adjectives only the words and true guidance from a fully realized, soul conscious, master teacher, Jesus himself.

I always felt uncomfortable

I always felt uncomfortable "worshiping" Jesus, as he himself said to bow to his Father, not him. I have accepted Jesus as a teacher and as an example of ultimate sacrifice. But still feel uncomfortable laying a cross on myself, as I was taught from the childhood. When I [automatically] lay the cross, I feel like I'm cheating the Father. Right or wrong, that's just my feelings.

I always felt like neither Jesus or God really wants worship

Wouldn't it just be the ultimate in egotism and self aggrandizing? The worshipping a being thing has always bugged me.

I have heard it explained

I have heard it explained like this: we always worship. We are always praising those things that we find admirable: our favorite sports team, good people we know, a particularly beautiful sunset, our favorite vacation spot. We praise by telling others about it, explaining its virtues. The greater the object is, the greater and more profound is the praise and the more joy we derive from it. What is more, our joy in appreciating the object is made full in the sharing.

God, as the ultimate being of the universe, is the most praiseworthy object of all of creation. He desires us to worship Him because He wants us to know what true beauty and greatness is -- to revel in the wonder of who He is. It is not to satisfy His ego as He wants for nothing. Rather it is to give us pleasure just as watching a beautiful sunset or being with a good friend give us pleasure. To focus our pleasure on other things is to deprive us from seeing the true treasure of the universe -- like hanging around a drainage ditch instead of taking in the Grand Canyon.

We will always worship and praise. The question is what are we worshiping and praising, and is it worthy of such attention? After all, there are a lot of people who worship Rush Limbaugh.... ;-)

Oh, and Khomar, I would study well the meaning from the

parable of the Sower. I don't know what more evidence you would need to realize what Jesus was guiding us to do so that we could become like him!

Thanks again Anisha for your illuminating insight!

Question:
When you speak of "The temporal powers over humanity" and "the powers that be", are you referring to the NWO crowd here on earth or their bosses in the sky box?

It would most certainly pertain to those persons who

have so developed their LOWER selves in such a way that the hunger and appetite to take that which is not theirs to take, is so great that it matters not if millions must be killed, suffer horribly on a daily basis, or are made into legal 'collateral' by means of their political pawns for their daily economic dinner.

Luke 16:13 No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

It is far less painful to voluntarily adopt a fundamental attitude of humility than to have it thrust upon oneself as the painful consequence of ineptitude. - David R. Hawkins

what would yeshua ben joseph

what would yeshua ben joseph do if he came back right now???

well... assuming he actually wanted to get involved...

he's kinda pissed off at the moment. lol. i personally tend to try and avoid ascended masters and christs when they're pissed off. :)

it ain't comfortable being in the line of fire.

he is NOT amused with christianity as it is today. would he come and play here again?? don't know. haven't heard the latest scoop on that.

regarding the usa politicians... i'd like him to do what the masters do in the book 'brother of the 3rd degree'... but he's a pretty nice dude sooooo i don't know if he plays with those masters or not.

i gotta refresh my memory...it's been a LONG time since i read the series 'masters of the far east'. jesus shows up in the second book.

he might show up to some major political meetings and give out a really brutal tongue lashing. same with the folks who head the fed.

he has no problem with materialism. materialism isn't 'bad'. that whole idea was brought forth by a poor person. we live in the slowest, densist (sp??) reality (hertizian) that there is ... the whole point is material. however... ultimately, the objective in this game is to own our limiting attitudes, master the flesh and move on to new experiences/adventures.

it is likely that he is highly impressed by ron paul's ability to 'stay the course', support of freedom and liberty and put up with ridicule. they'd have lots to chat about.

he'd likely have a kick @ss get together with free wine and food...manifested straight out of the grid of course. :)

i'd hope he'd swing by rse for an evening event and kick back with ram. live streamed to the world of course.

he'd heal a bunch of sick people. and tell them to stop thinking dumb @ss, limiting, destructive, dis-ease causing thoughts (the whole 'don't sin again' thing)

i TOTALLY recommend the book 'the nine faces of christ' for those not into the bible but who think jesus was a cool dude. :)

Hosanna in the highest

Jesus, the King of the Jews, the liberator of the oppressed, arrived on a lowly mule as the people placed palm prawns in the street as a sign of exaltation.

The messiah had arrived! The King that would lead the nation against the oppressive Roman empire; his words were awaited by the people. They needed a new leader, they wanted a new solution and the cheers rang out, hosanna, hosanna in the highest.

Jesus spoke of the solution, spiritual in nature and not what the people felt they needed and definitely not what they wanted. In the days that followed the shouts of praise and expectation of great things to come turned to, crucify. Crucify, crucify, crucify!

And so it is, it matters not what Jesus would say, would you believe?

In the midst of this physical world, with all the pain, all the greed, all the war and death and destruction, with the bills that need paid and the new toys to purchase, in the comfort of my castle with my chariot in the drive, in this physical world that I can't remember ever not being a part of....can I believe this is but an illusion?

After some number of decades in this world, will I be placed in the ground and be nevermore? Am I but this physical body?

The question transcends all time, it always will, for we do not nor shall we ever know. Unless we know without question, like Jesus, the spiritual teacher, that we are part of God, each and every one of us. Then like Jesus we will know that not even death is the end of the son of man.

What would Jesus say? What would I hear?
