Suicides of the Realm

“If you fully obey the LORD your God
And carefully follow all his commands,
I give you today, the LORD your God
Will set you high above all the nations on earth.”
Deuteronomy 28:1.

The word suicide can and does take meaning from when it is used in the past context. Generally, the word is used with the idea of a person’s personal self-destruction. It is often used to blow out the persons brains.

 

Other ideas such as putting their head into an oven so that the lungs and the rest of the body are deprived of oxygen for a short period of time.  Another means now is to overdose on drugs which can be visibly observed on television in reports.

 

The list on a personal basis can be seen as they are reacted by creative ideas of these people. In the past, the Christian stated no matter how this is done – it is murder. We can see this is so. The following are methods which can be called suicide:

  • Overeating,
  • Alcohol consumption,
  • Tobacco use – chewing,
  • Smoking,
  • Jumping off a bridge,
  • Use of prescription drugs,
  • Car speeding,
  • False teachings, and
  • Advice from the ignorant.

These are merely some of the areas which have been used in the past.

 

We must know there is a common denominator that these participants use. You might ask yourself what it is. The answer is a lack of hope. When this comes about then the need is to help people. Later in this blog we will discuss hope. Most of the time, suicide refers to a person – but this can be seen being done in Association Groups and in political parties.

 

Sometimes, even NATIONS commit suicide.

 

This is one of the reasons history is read, thought about and observed. The following nations that we are acknowledgeable about and in the western world:

  • Germany – fought on two fronts,
  • Soviet Union – adopted Socialism,
  • Argentina- Socialism and Unionism,
  • Great Britain – Socialism,
  • France – Let muslims into their country,
  • Mexico – Allowed Massive Corruption,
  • Chile – Revolution
  • Venezuela – Will go down in Socialism, and
  • Japan – a War machine.

These are a few which we know about which can be explained.

 

There have been nations who have been cited in history:

  • Greece,
  • Sparta,
  • Rome,
  • Mesopotamia,
  • Medes,
  • Persia,
  • Macedonia
  • Malay,
  • Northern Kingdom.
  • Southern kingdom,
  • Carthage, and
  • Han Dynasty.


According to history – these nations literally destroyed themselves by making non-sensical decisions.

We know that corporations commit suicide also. There are some classic examples in the United States. However, this need not be. Decisions can be made which enable them to survive.

 

The business word is no different than people who commit suicide. The corporation is a shield which is intended to protect the scholarships. In the business of today we see different forms of this idea. It seems the latest in the Limited Liability Company (LLC), which while it gives safety to its members has other reasons such as the flow to the members.

 

Then one can observe other uses of the corporate structure. They have an  ability to create different types of safety, so the corporation cannot be destroyed.

 

One area which often is not understood is the court system. John D. Rockefeller had his system broken up when the Supreme Court wrote to his company that it had to be shattered. Rockefeller was supposed to be one of the richest men in the world, but the Supreme Court said it had to be broken up.

This was the reason for a while there were so many Standard Oil. I do not know all of the Standard Oil companies. The company had become so big that it was causing the government to be unable to control corporations. This is a form of suicide. Jealous people began seeking its destruction.

 

Generally, a business starts out small, but soon it can grow to be a huge power and a money machine.

 

There are two companies which prove the point that suicide is not necessarily a given. The first is McDonald’s. At first, this was only a one property place of business. The two McDonald brothers produced an idea.

 

A man by the name of Kroc bought them out. He did something very intelligent when he focused on hamburgers and catsup and french fries. It was another man who handled the finances and land purchase. Now people recognize the yellow “M” everywhere.  No suicide because of proper management.

 

The second company was in control by an owner who did not try to be big at the very beginning. He first went to a small town and setup shop. He knew little people did not have big buying power. So, he gave financial power to them. You know this company as Walmart. Its name comes from Sam Walton. No suicide. He and the corporation catered to the little people.

 

These two companies are good examples of people who took advantage of what little people want.

There are groups of companies that failed to see the advantages.

  • Penney’s
  • Montgomery Ward’s,
  • Packard,
  • Pontiac,
  • Edsel,
  • Oldsmobile, and
  • Nieman Marcus.

All of these were thriving businesses that later committed suicide. Another way is to let certain types of CFO’s run a company.

 

Corporations and businesses must adjust to change. There was a time when people knew one of the largest chains in the world was A&P grocery stores. In 1929, there were 15,000 stores. This grocery chain was bigger than any other grocery store. Your writer does not know of one single A&P grocery chain that even exists at this time.

What happened is that it didn’t compete in the marketplace. The people in charge did not meet the onslaught of new ideas. It committed suicide. It was big in 1930s, 1940s, and the 1950’s. Then the charge, caused havoc.

 

As a spectator, one can see the decline of the newspaper industry. At one time your writer took these papers:

  • Dallas Morning News,
  • San Angelo Standard Times,
  • Wall Street Journal,
  • Odessa American, and
  • Fort Worth Star Telegram.

Now it is different. Only one paper is delivered to my door. It is the Odessa American, because it is where I live. These other papers offer nothing in the way of real news. Several of these are anti-Trump and are not worth reading – plus the delivery cost.

It is easy to see all are in a suicide stance. People would rather go to the internet and peruse a short story on Breitbart, WND and Blacklisted News. Suicide is present.


Most likely, newspapers will be finished by the year 2025.

 

This cannot be proven but it has been predicted. The inventor of the copy machine went to Xerox to sell the machine. Xerox refused to market the machine because they thought that only about 5,000 machines could ever be sold.

 

Heh-heh. We now have buildings where over 5,000 copy machines are there right now. Your writer personally has three in his house and business. Xerox made a mistake that cost it dearly. Suicide was there.

 

The Democrat Party is calling for suicide when its members wrap their minds around the final destruction of the glorious Republic. We live under its shield.

 

Idiots such as Alexandria O. Cortez (AOC) want us to remove the oil and gas industry. This is a crazy thought, but she takes her marching orders from the Bolshevik Senator Bernie Sanders. This man is a communist.

Then, we have the Nazi Nancy Pelosi.  You’d think she has a greater grasp of the facts – but embraces all of the evils of the Socialists. The Democratic leader is a demon. The people of BLM and Antifa burned business and the tax base of the future.

It’s been reported that over 15,000 people have already left New York City.  Chicago is also on their way out as a great city. New York City is known for three areas: culture, food, and economics. The restaurants are quickly going the way of the horse and buggy The cultural center for comedy clubs, plays, and art, are going to other places else because of the lack of  safety.

 

Economics are found in places miles from the big cities! Safety is a must but also their tax burden is too much. The Democratic Party has planted suicide in this city. De Blasio and his black wife are evil and the signs are ominous.

 

The Body of Jesus Christ has not yet risen to meet the onslaught of evil that it faces. There are weak leaders who do not seem to see the tremendous opportunities that are with us. The time of the church buildings may be gone.

 

Actually, the buildings were only used about six or seven hours a week. This was a huge waste that existed but for one or two reasons. Some were used for events – i.e., weddings and funerals. Actually, there was a projected decline even for weddings and funerals.

 

We Christians have always associated eating as part of going to a church. Our fellowship with each other is from a Greek word “alleylon” – the meaning is “peace with one another”.   It is used one hundred times. Mark 9:50, uses this word.

Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.”

 

Mark 4:11, also uses it.

“And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables.”

 

This is a requirement. However, another requirement is found in I Peter 1: 22, when we are told to do this.

Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently.”

 

We are told humility is also a must because Galatians 5:13, points this as a must.

For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.”

 

Even in this Pandemic, the New Testament tells us that we should act like a Christian should by being:

  1. One with others,
  2. Loving each other, and
  3. Have Humility.

 

There is no way for us to push a button and they automatically get uploaded to our mind and our soul. These all can exist even in a pandemic.

 

We need to be disciplined as a good Christian. Our lesson must be a time of learning.

 

The thought process should be  – what is God teaching us during the pandemic? He is teaching us that there will be lasting effect of Covid-19 on the Church. Churches are clearing by vast numbers. However, God is:

  1. Omniscient,
  2. Omnipotent, and
  3. Have Humility.

 

Do not say the pandemic is all bad. It is not. These are serious questions:

  1. How do you worship?
  2. When do we worship?
  3. Where do we worship?
  4. What method should we worship?

 

It is time for the Church to change from being self-centered — to restoring the New Testament Church that was given to us. Homes are now an integral part of the Church.

 

As a Christian you and I must understand that we are no longer going to only be “Christmas and Easter” people.   We need to think forward. The Church must meet the challenge.

Your author does not want to see harm come to the Body of Christ. It is long overdue.  The Church refused to act. It was too lazy. It was self-centered. It was not the Body Christ that was and is told for us in the New Testament.

Luckily, the computer and the mouse allow us to buy food, clothing, and automobiles. Is this the future of the Church?

 

The Church of today is different from yesterday. Business is not the same either. There will be evil people like Schumer, Pelosi, Biden and the Communists who will change also.

We must not allow these people to gain control of the apparatus of change. In my opinion, that would be a sin. This is the plan for us. Look at the cities where these wretches have control. Face it. This plan is not ours. Rebel against the Democratic Party and its evil ideas.

 

You should pay no attention those who say we are only optimists. I do not belong to their group. My task is to meet the Tribulation and seek God’s divine will. This is my home for now, so it is imperative that I follow God’s plan. Matthew 28:19-20, tells me to perform.

 

“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

 

CONCLUSION

  1. Leaders commit suicide,
  2. Corporations commit suicide,
  3. Nations commit suicide.
  4. The Church in the New Testament gives the plan. 

 

God Bless Our Fragile Republic. 

KEEP THE FAITH!

 

OTHERS

“Lord, help me live from day to day
In such a self-forgetful way
That even when I kneel to pray
My prayer shall be for others.

Refrain:
Yes, others, Lord, yes, others,
Let this my motto be;
Help me to live for others,
Help me to live for others,
That I may live like Thee,
That I may live like Thee.

Help me in all the work I do
To ever be sincere and true,
And know that all I’d do for You
Must needs be done for others.

Let “Self” be crucified and slain
And buried deep: and all in vain
May efforts be to rise again,
Except to live for others.

So when my work on earth is done,
And my new work in heav’n’s begun,
I’ll praise You for the crown I’ve won,
But praise You more for others.”
