1 God presides in the great assembly; he gives judgment among the “gods”: 2 “How long will you defend the unjust and show partiality to the wicked? “Selah” 3 Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless; maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed. 4 Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked. 5 “They know nothing, they understand nothing. They walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken. 6 “I said, ‘You are “gods”; you are all sons of the Most High.’
Verses 2, 3 and 4 are commands—not requests.
Psalm 82 continues with 82:6-8
“I said, ‘You are “gods”;
you are all sons of the Most High.’
7 But you will die like mere mortals;
you will fall like every other ruler.”
8 Rise up, O God, judge the earth,
for all the nations are your inheritance.
Verse 4 commands: “Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.” Who are the wicked (and also see the last paragraph below)? Read Isaiah 1:21-23, below.
Why are we in the conditions of Psalm 82:1-6? Because believers (most) do nothing; say nothing. Why according to the Bible? Read Isaiah below:
21 See how the faithful city
has become a prostitute!
She once was full of justice;
righteousness used to dwell in her—
but now murderers!
22 Your silver has become dross,
your choice wine is diluted with water.
23 Your rulers are rebels,
partners with thieves;
they all love bribes
and chase after gifts.
They do not defend the cause of the fatherless;
the widow’s case does not come before them.
In Isaiah 1:21-23, read carefully for the reasons that the cause of the fatherless and the widow’s case do not come before “them.” Who are “them”? Rulers. Why do the rulers not support the fatherless and the widows? It begins with verse 22, which causes the faithful city (includes the people living in the city) to become a prostitute, but now murderers. Why is the city a prostitute? Because fiat money and credit (counterfeit—created by computer entry—your silver has become dross) causes the underlying rot in hearts: the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Fiat money and credit causes the collective corruption of hearts and the worship of government, not God.
Why did the city become murderers? Because the city loved living off debauched money (reduced the silver content so that the government could share debauched coins (many more because of less silver content) with its friends [WHO PROVIDE BRIBES WITH CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS] AT THE EXPENSE OF THE FATHERLESS AND WIDOWS). Requiring coins to be made of silver required the rulers to act honestly and kept the rulers from causing corruption in the heart of the city (people). It is as simple as that except now we have no silver or gold but just paper and computer entry currency. To call the Federal Reserve Note (at the top of your dollar) money is a tragedy because it is nothing but debt. Fiat means “let it be done” that allows politicians to support the elite (partners of the government) and it is paid for by fiat money (debt).
Your silver has become dross means inflation—creating more coins with less and less silver content–allowing the rulers to overspend as rebels and become partners with thieves. Who are the thieves? The elite who are connected with the government, which is called fascism. The government in the U.S. is partners with these thieves, beginning with Wall Street and then other elitist companies and individuals. The government takes from the people, primarily due to the creation of money and credit by the Federal Reserve and the banking system by giving them counterfeit money, resulting in extracting wealth from the citizens.
The rulers love bribes and chase after gifts. Does this sound familiar? Lobbyists and elitists making campaign contributions and partnering with the government at the expense of the rest of us. When counterfeit money and credit are transferred to one group, those who earn their wealth have to pay for this counterfeit money and credit. The use of fiat money and credit by the U.S. Treasury—funded by the Federal Reserve that creates money by computer entry and loans to the U.S. Treasury—have caused millions of people around the world to starve and die. Did you know that? This is a fact.
“Fiat Money and Collective Corruption”
Psalm 82:1-6 includes the command for us to do something. Isaiah 1:21-23 clearly states the reasons we have problems. We are ignoring the Bible: judgment begins with the house of the Lord. 1 Peter 4:17.
Because of inaction and not listening to the Watchmen, we are headed to those conditions stated by Psalm 11:3: When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do?”
Dr. Gary North in many pages of proof shows that when Darwin and his students took the position that the universe had no design, order or purpose and that the elite must give the universe design, order and purpose, only the Watchmen at that time stood up. They stood up and said that God did have design, order and His purpose for the universe. This is teleology. But the pastors ignored the Watchman and humanism was born and grew. It has fully grown now and the humanists want to get rid of “grace” from God because man is supreme. Man cannot be supreme if the unpatriotic believers continue to preach and believe grace is free from God. Government along with the elite must take care of man, not God.
And now to make the final point—
32 Then you will know the truth [aletheia] , and the truth [aletheia] will set you free.”
Aletheia is the Greek word used in the foregoing verse for truth.
Aletheia; truth, as the unveiled reality lying at the basis of and agreeing with an appearance; the manifested, or the veritable essence of matter. The reality pertaining to an appearance. The adj: alethes also means the same thing (Romans 1:18, 25). Therefore, denotes the reality clearly lying before our eyes as opposite to a mere appearance, without reality, with three distinctive meanings: (1) Truth as opposite to falsehood, error or insincerity; (2) truth as opposite to types, emblems or shadows; and (3) integrity, rectitude of nature.
Most Americans (apparently) believe that the word “truth” in John 8:32 means: (1) the Word of God; (2) Yeshua (Jesus); and (3) Holy Spirit—Spirit of truth. It does not. The word is Aletheia.
This is more of a secular word for truth than spiritual. David Jeremiah says: “keep you head in the game and your hope in God.” Paul Mcguire says: Keep your head in the game and your heart on God.” Yeshua (Jesus) said to know what is going on around you—the truths, which do NOT come from the mainstream. Listen to the words of those who are Watchmen.
Peter denied the Messiah three times and learned a truth: that he was self-righteous. With that truth facing him, Peter repented and changed. The truth (aletheia) set him free. He could have ignored the truth and gone to the synagogue and praised the Lord and remained a prisoner.
Hence for Richard Duke—
I hope I am, and if not, then I want to be, a skeptical, fideist, teleologist (as I learned from Nassim Nicholas Taleb) in his latest book, Antifragile, and from Gary North in his book The Dominion Covenant–
Fideist–skeptic with faith in God.
1. The study of design or purpose in natural phenomena.
2. The use of ultimate purpose or design as a means of explaining phenomena.
3. Belief in or the perception of purposeful development toward an end, as in nature or history.
Darwin and his followers said that was no design, order or purpose (and no end result in the universe—no end meaning) in the universe and therefore man had to give the universe design, order and purpose (humanism—that lead to Socialism and Keynesianism).
Nassim Nicholas Taleb wrote in Antifragile, page 234: “It is difficult for people to understand that, historically, skepticism has ben mostly skepticism of the expert knowledge rather than skeptism about abstract entities like God, and that all the great skeptics have been largely either religious or, at least, pro-religion (that is, in favor of others being religious).”
God does have design, order and purpose in the universe; and there is an end result—His end result. I am a teleologist. (Microsoft says teleologist is not a word. Microsoft is wrong.)
I do NOT trust man because the mainstream controls knowledge rendering a very substantial majority of people to a state of being uninformed. The mainstream exists to protect the mainstream. If you take government employees sitting in pews and give them direct knowledge that people in private industry (where items are made and sold that people must have or think they must have) are being laid off and in desperate financial straits, most will be upset if any of their salary, medical coverage or pension benefits are cut. He takes the position stated by the Austrians: “I got mine, to heck with you.” The mainstream controls minds, even most of those sitting in pews. Primary reason: pastors were not taught economics from Genesis but received “baptized humanism” from the economics departments (Keynesians that believe the government is god) in secular schools. See, Gary North—author of the 31 volumes of books on the “Economic Commentary of the Bible” with volume 1: “The Dominion Covenant”—Genesis.
Psalm 82:4. “Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.” Who are the wicked that we are to deliver the weak and needy? It begins with the Federal Reserve, the Federal Government and various agencies such as the CIA, the U.S. Treasury, elitist companies in partnership with the government and international bankers. We are supposed to speak out and deliver.
