Interpreting the times by Grant Marshall
In September 2015 the UN released its Sustainable Development Policy (SDG). It superseded the policy formally known as Agenda 21. The new policy was now termed Agenda 2030. In effect, the policy from the time of its release in 2015 gave us 15 years to reach the goals set for 2030.
For those who are unfamiliar with these goals, see the header graphic.
These goals were also set out in Pope Francis’ encyclical of May 2015, declaring, in essence, that our resources and levels of consumption and population, in brief, every aspect of human life must be addressed. We have contravened the legal stewardship of our planet and therefore we must do all in our power to reverse our actions.
OF THE HOLY FATHER
ON CARE FOR OUR COMMON HOME 24th May 2015
1. “LAUDATO SI’, mi’ Signore” – “Praise be to you, my Lord”. In the words of this beautiful canticle, Saint Francis of Assisi reminds us that our common home is like a sister with whom we share our life and a beautiful mother who opens her arms to embrace us. “Praise be to you, my Lord, through our Sister, Mother Earth, who sustains and governs us, and who produces various fruit with coloured flowers and herbs”.
2. This sister now cries out to us because of the harm we have inflicted on her by our irresponsible use and abuse of the goods with which God has endowed her. We have come to see ourselves as her lords and masters, entitled to plunder her at will. The violence present in our hearts, wounded by sin, is also reflected in the symptoms of sickness evident in the soil, in the water, in the air and in all forms of life. This is why the earth herself, burdened and laid waste, is among the most abandoned and maltreated of our poor; she “groans in travail” (Rom 8:22). We have forgotten that we ourselves are dust of the earth (cf. Gen 2:7); our very bodies are made up of her elements, we breathe her air and we receive life and refreshment from her waters.
Many of the policies set (not proposed) came into effect very quickly. Specifically, gender equality, which has propagated the women’s rights and transgender agenda, and if we haven’t had enough of it already, the climate change agenda.
You may not agree with me or the articles we have written in our recent blogs concerning the rise of AI and linked advanced technologies, specifically those that concern weather manipulation, but I am convinced that the irradiation of our airwaves if not in part but in all, is the reason we are seeing such devastation across the earth through extreme weather events.
Our article ‘5G Who’s in control,’ exposes a number of very concerning issues and by-products of the output from this ominous frequency. We have highlighted the effects of 5G upon the human body and the environment. We have highlighted that it can cause tumours and sterility. Which by coincidence, is a perfect tool to stem the population problem, wouldn’t you say? To a degree, this technology is in our hands. We have the choice to use it or not, for now; soon we won’t.
There have been reports of bright coloured lights and sounds in the heavens. Could this simply be the result of organisations releasing ultra-high microwave frequencies into the atmosphere? Perchance?
The HAARP ( High- Frequency, Active Auroral Research Program) developed by British Aerospace and used by the US Army and Navy, alongside DARPA ( Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency) who coincidentally worked with Google to build advanced communications technologies in conjunction with developing futuristic weapons systems, have by large created the problems we now face, through the technology we use today. High resonance and frequency devices through their experiments are affecting the ionosphere of the earth which will account for the aerial anomalies witnessed by so many.
The problem now is, of course, can we control what has been started. Could the extreme flood, fire and freaky events we see now be a result of the butterfly effect for instance? And is science really on the verge of losing control over these kinds of manipulated events?
Looking at all of this, it seems more than a coincidence that these technologies, climate change and the SDGs for 2030 are not linked.
Now to the point of this letter. We read in the Torah portion this week, ‘Mikketz – At the end,’ Genesis 41:1-44:17, the story of Joseph, his rise to power and the exodus of Jacob and his family to Egypt during a time of famine.
What has all this to do with my introduction you might ask?
The story of Joseph is a shadow image, in other words, an allusion to a coming event – prophecy.
Joseph never prophesied, in fact, but interpreted dreams. He did not however, interpret his original dream in Genesis 37:5. But the reaction of Jacob to it was unusual to say the least.
The story of Joseph lays out before us a future event that would occur thousands of years later. The picture Joseph speaks of regarding the theme of his dream to his brothers. It may allude to the rise of the son of God to the order of the royal Melchizedek priesthood, where the stars and heavenly bodies represent the heavenly council of gods.
Furthermore, we see Father Jacob’s favourite son being thrown into an empty cistern. Could this be symbolic of Yeshua’s earthly visit? We see that he becomes a servant to his brothers before being placed into the authority and captivity of the Egyptian world. Then we see His temptation from Potiphar’s wife. Is this symbolic of Yeshua’s confrontation with HaSatan and subsequent trumpt up accusations? Could his imprisonment be representative of Yeshua’s trial and ultimate rise to power, second only to Pharaoh (The God of Egypt)? In addition, we see that Joseph was also the same age as Yeshua when He entered ministry.
Could the gift from Pharaoh, in the giving of the high priest’s daughter in marriage to Joseph and the subsequent offspring of Manasseh and Ephraim be a symbolic image also?
When we look a little closer into Joseph’s dream, we are told that a period of plenty will be followed by a period of lack, and that Egypt has seven years to prepare. We all know the story. But breaking it down further we realise that this pattern prevails throughout the economy of history and is governed by God’s cause and effect pattern set in Deuteronomy 28. The blessings precede the curses which come as a result of God’s people turning away from His laws.
Times of prosperity can turn our focus away from Him and our love can grow cold. The lean and hard years of lack and trial are God’s way of showing us that our dependence must be on Him. All good things come from Him and we will lack none of them. The prosperous years bring forth an appetite for more, greed transpires and the love of money breeds corruption through unjust institutions and policies.
Genesis 6:5-6 and 11-13, shows us that God recognises these traits. Wickedness and corruption fill the earth.
Genesis 6 – The Corruption of Mankind
6 Now it happened, when men began to multiply on the face of the land, and daughters were born to them, 2 that the [a]sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful and desirable; and they took wives for themselves, whomever they chose and desired. 3 Then the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not strive and remain with man forever, because he is indeed flesh [sinful, corrupt—given over to sensual appetites]; nevertheless his days shall yet be [b]a hundred and twenty years.” 4 There were Nephilim (men of stature, notorious men) on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God lived with the daughters of men, and they gave birth to their children. These were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown (great reputation, fame).
5 The Lord saw that the wickedness (depravity) of man was great on the earth, and that every imagination or intent of the thoughts of his heart were only evil continually. 6 The Lord [c]regretted that He had made mankind on the earth, and He was [deeply] grieved in His heart. 7 So the Lord said, “I will destroy (annihilate) mankind whom I have created from the surface of the earth—not only man, but the animals and the crawling things and the birds of the air—because it [deeply] grieves Me [to see mankind’s sin] and I regret that I have made them.” 8 But Noah found favor and grace in the eyes of the Lord.
9 These are the records of the generations (family history) of Noah. Noah was a righteous man [one who was just and had right standing with God], blameless in his [evil] generation; Noah walked (lived) [in habitual fellowship] with God. 10 Now Noah became the father of three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
11 The [population of the] earth was corrupt [absolutely depraved—spiritually and morally putrid] in God’s sight, and the land was filled with violence [desecration, infringement, outrage, assault, and lust for power]. 12 God looked on the earth and saw how debased and degenerate it was, for all humanity had corrupted their way on the earth and lost their true direction.
The passages in Luke 17, tell us that the second coming of the Lord will be like these times. The days of Noah will be wicked, corrupt, and the days of Lot will be perverse and economically strong.
I am not saying that the Lord has said that the coming years, now, since the election of our new government will be like those foretold in Luke, but the pattern of prophecy points us to similar events. As a nation, we do have an opportunity to build a strong and vibrant economy. With a little hard work, companies will prosper but at what cost. The EU’s hold on us will not be entirely broken and because of this the days of a ‘Lot,’ excuse the wordplay, may not be too fruitful in the years that follow. Wickedness and the agenda to bring a unified religion will not bode well for the world. The agenda for the coming decade will bring about phenomenal change.
We have time to prepare. By all means, build in the economy of the world, prosper in its wealth but don’t lose focus on what is coming. The coin of God has His face on it, not Caesar’s. Let’s build what we can together and take it into the economy of YHVH’s Kingdom. Jacob’s family prospered in the years of plenty, but captivity and enslavement threw them into centuries of crisis and control. Their years of blessing ended up being a curse, which is the allusion in the opening paragraphs of this letter.
