I live in a van down by the river.......but it's paid off.
Sincerely,

Matt Foley

That ain't so bad.
I'd love to live down by a river.
I did as a youngster and had a great time making campfires, roasting hot dogs.
and once in a great while we actually caught a fish! rofl

I guess I'll just sulk in my 5 bedroom home built with a 3 acre pond out back.
Or my other home on 15 acres that teems with wild game and my own shooting
range.
Ahhhhhhhhh, life sucks don't it?
I EARNED EVERYTHING I HAVE BY WORKING FOR IT!
Once I earned $7,000 in one week at G.M and paid $3500 in TAXES!
I'm gonna go to hell for earning my way?

This study goes over why it is a sin to be in debt, to lend at interest, and to engage in various forms of usury that are common in American culture. The study can be found here http://www.wisdomofgod.co/2016/10/21/the-abomination-of-usury-and-interest-and-the-slavery-of-debt/ .


So, all Americans are doomed then?

Where do you live? How do you do so?


The second beast of Revelation is America. So it should come as no surprise that most Americans will be captured and thrown into the lake of fire by angels at the coming of the Lord.


If you think that those that are under mortgages that, unless one is a bazillionaire, must be utilized to buy a home as those included in who will be captured and thrown into the lake of fire, that's prettee much all of America.

Again, where do you live and how do you do so?


And this is why the second beast of Revelation deceives nearly everyone, and causes the great and small, rich and poor to receive the mark of the beast to buy or sell, because the mark is related to the financial system of interest and usury that exists in America, of which most are unwittingly participating in to their own doom. I myself live in America, and I am also an American, but am aware of the evils that exist here through the light of scripture. It is indeed possible to live using cash only, especially if you have humbled yourself in the way Jesus Christ mandated, "sell everything". It is when you pursue acquiring possessions in this country that you will then find yourself entangled in the financial evils to be able to buy.


Thank  you for YOUR interpretation of scripture.
Educated in religious studies are ya?
Or just another novice preacher wannabe?
33,000 recognized denominations of Christianity all reading the SAME BOOK!
You need STUDY why Revelation was written in the prose style that it was.
Then you might not take it so literally.
The Book of Revelation is LARGELY SYMBOLIC.
Unless you really believe a harlot rides a dragon or four guys ride horses
bringing mayhem to sinners.
I suppose you see Hell as a literal place where sinners go to suffer for eternity.
Whoooooooooooooo-boy!
T-V evangelists preach that crap to solicit money from the poor and ignorant.


You are speaking presumptuously, for nothing of what you said describes anything that I believe. I have not even identified what the mark is, all I said is that it is related to the financial system in America, which is true, for you cannot buy or sell according to the prophecy in Revelation that speaks of the mark. You cannot understand the mark unless you first understand the evils behind interest and usury.

How do you do this?  How do you live? Specifically, please, tell us...

If you rent, you rent from someone who owns A LOT of debt or property outright, which means they sin by not "selling all that they have", and you are enabling their sin.

Or you own, and have no mortgage, because you are independently wealthy and own your home, thereby not obeying the call you impose on others to "Sell all that they have".

if you are homeless, living in a shelter needlessly (as you say, you live cash only, and those that do so are usually quite well off) you take from those that have a legitimate need for that place of refuge.

Also, what Body of believers do you attend? I thought you said you refused to belong to any assembly.

I rent, as the early assemblies also did, hence why Paul rented,

For two whole years Paul stayed there in his own rented house and welcomed all who came to see him. (Acts 28:30 [NIV])

And paying rent is not "enabling" someone to sin, for they will sin with or without my rent payment, just as anyone you buy or sell from will sin without you, or just as even government authorities will sin with or without your tax payments.

I am a Messianic Jew if you must know.

I knew a man who was an accountant.
He lived alone in a sleeping room, no car, no bills, walked everywhere, ate in
the poorest greasy soon restaurants, died alone in his bed with NO ONE to
claim his body.
He ROTTED in bed before the odor attracted attention.
He had well over a quarter million in savings, stocks, etc.
Lacking relatives and NO will, the STATE took everything.
He was given a paupers funeral and buried by a funeral home that sometimes did that
for indigent people.
I knew a woman who was a recluse.
She was also a hoarder.
We found her body under newspapers three feet deep.
She had $35,000 bucks in a savings account.
I dunno.
People is weird critters.

I am not suggesting to live in solitude, for we are all called to be a part of the assemblies of God, to shepherd the sheep, to bear fruit, and also to testify to unbelievers, but I am exposing through scripture the financial evils that exist in America, that unless anyone stops participating in, they cannot inherit the kingdom of God.

You know that for a fact now do ya?
Based upon what?
You are a Bible scholar educated and skilled enough to "expose through scripture" anything???
I doubt your education level is above high school.
Certainly not a degree in religious studies.
I have TWO degrees,
Kent State and Geneva University.
Geneva is a Presbyterian University and our first text book was an N.I.V. Bible.
We studied it and wrote essay after essay on the subject matter.
I'm qualified to preach but I don't want to.
I retired from G.M with my engineering degree.
The more I know the more I know what I don't know.
Wisdom in that.

Usery:

the illegal action or practice of lending money at unreasonably high rates of interest.

Debt and credit are NOT crimes.
I know of no government or society that is a cash and carry only society.
Debt and credit are NOT sins.
If that is weighing heavy on your mind you don't have enough to do.

That is the western definition of usury, which is not the scriptural definition of usury. Even the Muslims have the correct definition of usury, "reba". If you think usury is just charging high amounts of interest then you will find yourself in some serious trouble in the day of judgment, for this particular sin is an abomination to God, hence why it is specifically defined as a "mark" in the book of Revelation, which will automatically condemn to fire anyone receiving the mark.
