MM Book 1 Chapter 1-3

We have been inured by a concept, a category of thought … in our pockets is a weapon of war, a weapon of mass destruction, which cumulatively has killed more people, destroyed more lives, has wrought more environmental destruction than any other weapon ever devised by man – it is an ancient weapon, and it claims all: this weapon demands sacrifice [blood and sweat], it demands complete surrender and obedience, it demands ”worship” – all life is equated with this weapon, its use *is* the “means” of life [all is acquired by violent use of this weapon]; all blessings and punishments are equated, peace and happiness are equated, status and “worth” for life are equated, mind [very thought] is equated [intellectual "property"], even God is equated with this weapon [the ultimate lie]; we are governed by this weapon, it is held over our heads and to our throats, lest we should think or speak against it – this weapon of war is regarded as a weapon of peace, as the very cure for the disease that “it” actually is – we [all of us], by *use* of this weapon *become* the enemy, our enemy, and by its use we are committing collective suicide; this weapon is an instrumentation of evil, and we personify evil by its use – this weapon is known by all, sought by all, and excused by all; all is done in its name and service: THIS WEAPON [OF EVIL] IS MONEY*, AND OUR USE OF IT !! – this weapon *is* absolute [idol] power and author-ity and conveys such to those who wield and control it !! *[as corporate debt-instrument]

MM Book 1 Chapter 1-4

There are writings thousands of years old warning about this weapon and its use; God’s Word explains for us two “ways of life”: a “society of the gift” [giving life (God) to us], or a “society of the take” [taking life from us]; all prophecy, as determinant [not prediction], lays out the choice for us [the blessings and cursings], and gives us the example of our ancestors [Israel], those chosen [small in number and in slavery] and called out of the world’s systemic, to create the alternative, by introducing God to the world, and applying Him in the world, yet the Bible relates the story of Israel’s failure, and the story remains the same today [physically and spiritually] !! – MAMMON [the "business" of] *or* MESSIAH continues as our choice !! – the equating of Mammon with Messiah is our present state of being: BABYLON [confusion by mixing (God is not the author(-ity) of confusion)], where money [corporatized as weapon] is *equated* with life !! – to give consideration or regard to its use, to be a friend or an associate [support and maintenance] of it, IS THE ROOT [cause] OF ALL EVIL !! – the corporate nation, society and church are wholly opposed to our God(-ing), and must be *withdrawn* from [Moses], we must *return* to our God [Elijah] !! – we must have a clean heart and washed hands [innocency]; we must behave wisely and in a perfect way; we must despise [hate] the evil [work] !! – we must recognize God as [our] enabler !!

MM Book 1 Chapter 1-5

The corporate, as “definition of life”, must be rejected in total: GOD *IS* LIFE !! – OUR “SYSTEMIC MIND” MUST BE OF GOD !! – we must “exult” God [prepare the paths; remove the stumbling-blocks]; God has been made irrelevant – Hab. 3:17 systemic failure looming: our selfish mass coveting results in privation for all !! – the whole concept of “money” as we know it [mind it], is a contagion, DEEP SPIRITUAL ILLNESS !! – selfishness knows no bounds, it is a cancer, consuming all !! – the whole “business” concept of life [as means, as prejudiced claim (Nation-State, society, privilege, etc.), the adversarial competition] must be absolutely rejected, it is anti-God !! – each one of us is responsible for all aspects of our society, the privileged, monied pride, and the abject poverty [physically/spiritually]; it is easy to forsake others when our own human-ity [sodality (our fellowship, brotherhood)] has been abandoned – the specter [object of fear, of dread] of business [as mind] is God(-ing): all iniquity *purged* by mercy and truth !! — the physical is a reflection of the spiritual, and our society fits the definition: monied privilege [in the physical; supported by massive debt of claim] existing in abject poverty [spiritually; including the COG Inc., Laodicean spiritual condition]; the debt burden oppresses and controls most; all claim and its social resultant “poverty” [the commodification of life] is a result of our collective spiritual poverty, our lack of God !!

MM Book 1 Chapter 1-6

We cannot exist alone [web of life; ethnos-sphere (culture; meaning; many versions of the human story, the rituals of living connection)], we are born to be connected, to be bound together, all life long [by love]; Mammon, predicated upon taking, is negated by love [pure unselfish love]: MAMMON DEPENDS UPON OUR DISCONNECTION, OUR SELFISH INDIVIDUALISM, TO SURVIVE AND “PROFIT” !! – man will be healed by love, re-connected to each other and to God !! – LOVE [Christ; His creation] IS THE TOUCHSTONE OF GOD [ie., nature opens and reveals the depth of our nature (consideration; reverence); bio-philia (our innate love of life)] – the “instrument” of Mammon [its money] is the touchstone of evil [a psychological deficit; a mental illness]; our inner state [being] is a reflection of the world around us [eco-psychology]: WE TRULY ARE KOSMIC [kosmos], OUR PSYCHOLOGICAL DEFICIT IS PROFOUND, WE ARE DEEPLY OUT OF SACRED BALANCE; OUR RECIPROCAL BONDS HAVE BEEN BROKEN, AND/OR TORN !! [drawn from "Sacred Balance" (David Suzuki)] – we have *betrayed* ourselves [our potential] and God !!

MM Book 1 Chapter 1-7

Customs, habits, rituals: why are we the way we are ?? – you cannot resist something that you are an active part of; we must be a NEW CREATION vs. the purity aspect removed – business reduces man to an animal, survival of the fittest mentality, carnality, baseness [buy, lie, sell high] – GOD IS *HOLY* BECAUSE GOD IS A GIFT OF LOVE … AS GOD IS !! – we are a product of the environment we surround ourselves with, or are surrounded by; very few resist, most just acquiesce [to agree or consent quietly without protest, but without enthusiasm (gradually conditioned; inured)]: LIFE IS MORE VALUABLE THAN MONEY, we must withdraw !! – our “job” [work] is God-ing [agape community] vs. Mammon/business definitions [methods] as excuse [vs. the character of God (10C), our 10 character traits]: “nothing personal … it’s just business” is evil, the over-riding “evil” character of Mammon – GOD(-ing) IS THE ENHANCEMENT OF OUR HUMAN-ITY, WHAT WE WERE DESIGNED FOR … we were designed for, and to be, God Family !!

MM Book 1 Chapter 1-8

ONE FATHER [progenitor], ONE FAMILY, ONE FLESH, ONE LOVE … !! — privilege through money, or servant through Christ: Christ-ian-ity is a re-definition of life vs. Mammon’s evil, corporate definitions, perspectives; CHANGE YOUR DEFINITION AND YOU WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE: A NEW MIND !! – Christ is *not* Mammon: power is not money [corporate money is "worthless" to God(-ing)] – “bystander” attitudes must be changed; we must be the healers vs. business [the illness; the disease]; THE “POWER” OF GOD, OF LOVE, IS JUST THAT: “LOVE” [love moves mountains, love heals all] !! – MAMMON/BUSINESS IS THE SACRIFICE OF OTHERS, CHRIST-IAN-ITY IS THE SACRIFICE OF SELF !! – commonwealth and stewardship vs. private wealth and consumption [comfort and security at the expense (the sacrifice) of others] !! – THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS THE KINGDOM OF *LOVE*: THE RULE OF LOVE [entering a new realm; a paradigm of love] !! – WHAT RIGHT DO WE HAVE TO SACRIFICE OTHERS TO OURSELVES, TO DEMAND FROM THEM THEIR LIVES, GIVEN TO THEM BY GOD ?? – MAMMON IS CLAIM, OUR EXCUSE, OUR EVIL: MAMMON MAKES US IDOL(S) DEMANDING SACRIFICE, WE CLAIM “RIGHT OF GOD” INDIVIDUALLY AND AS GROUP [nation] !!

MM Book 1 Chapter 1-9

Being [convinced], Doing [conviction]: GOD BEING *IS* GOD-ING [Doing], *not* wanting and taking from each other, but contributing, gifting each other [the "return" on a love investment is love]; nothing [no thing] nor anybody or group is above the sanctity of a single human being !! — we must be gifted inorder to gift: love us, so that we may love … teach us … keep us … WE HAVE TO BE HEALED TO HEAL, TAUGHT TO TEACH, LOVED TO LOVE, vs. the violation of God: the commodification of life [of God], the ersatz control mechanism, “the” crime against humanity; this is the “mark of the Beast” systemic, the identifying sign, the “self-definition”, the eco-nomic social engagement !! – the “systemic” is self-defining: human beings are NOT commodities to be consumed [wasted, thrown away; used and abused]: A HUMAN BEING IS NOT A PRODUCT [to be bought, but a gift to be given: the return is love !!], NOT A RESOURCE FOR BUSINESS [human resources]; those who have “value” above their fellows must GIVE their value to those “under-valued” [a redefinition, an active and transitional re-defining into the God Family community (based on love)]; the “end-game” means of business [pillage, rape and abandonment (colonialism; the individual)] has nothing to do with God or community !! – the Holy Waters of God will be the “final liquidation” of business !!

MM Book 1 Chapter 1-10

The COG (Church of God) Inc., is changing [has changed; (ab)used] the Truth of God into a lie [Rom 1:25], causing their error [Amos 2:4], worshipping and serving Mammon [as master; Matt 6:24], *holding* the truth in unrighteousness [Rom 1:18]; they are deceived, the “lie in their right hand” is NOT recognized [Isa 44:20] – Mammon’s “income” as determinant, as eligibility for life, vs. “outcome” [our God-ing] as our community contribution [reciprocity], gifting the gifts of God, freely [GOD GIVEN RIGHT OF LIFE] !! — corporate media is NOT the truth of God, it is packaged information for a corporate culture, group prejudiced; it is mental [mentation] attrition [worn away], the erosion of the public mind [sand of the sea] – the COG must be God’s House of Prayer [binding and loosening], *active* [being/doing] prayer, IN CONTACT WITH GOD, APPLYING GOD [not re-defining Him], *IN* CHRIST’S NAME [in-and-of "SALVATION" (Jesus) and the "ANOINTING" (Christ)]; we are to be the healers in all aspects of life !! – GOD(-ing) IS NOT A SIDE-SHOW OR THEATRE: humility and faith [conviction], a still, small voice of love [of power]; true power [sincere belief; mind of God] is *not* enslavement [or blindness]; IT IS FREEDOM AND LIBERTY: PURE, AGAPE LOVE !!

MM Book 1 Chapter 1-11

“A society that welcomes people of all races and social classes, that is characterized by love not polarization, that cares most for its weakest members, that stands for justice and righteousness in a world enamored with selfishness and decadence, a society in which members compete [SEEK, STRIVE] for the privilege of serving [GIFTING] one another – this is what Jesus meant by the Kingdom of God.” [Philip Yancey, The Jesus I Never Knew (1995)] — OUR PRESENT EVIL SOCIETY HAS *NO* “RIGHT TO EXIST”, IT HAS NO LEGITIMACY IN THE SIGHT OF GOD; OUR SELFISHNESS HAS NO EXCUSE !!

“In any situation of oppression, especially in those oblique, indirect, and systemic ones where injustice wears a mask of normalcy or even of necessity, the only ones who are innocent or blessed [NON-COMPLICIT] are those squeezed out [OR WITHDRAW] deliberately as human junk [AS REFUSE, REDUNDANCY TERMINATED, OR AS "CRIMINAL" APOSTATES] from the system’s own evil operations [KOSMOS].” [John Dominic Crossan, "Jesus: A Revolutionary Biography" (1994)]

MM Book 1 Chapter 1-12

God(-ing) regards profit *as* “the other’s benefit”, NOT Mammon’s self-definition; GOD IS NOT DEFINED BY MAMMON !! – wages [giving life] based on profits [taking life] are predicated upon the sacrifice of others [who have *no* share, only scraps (vs. fellowship; bread-fellows)]; Mammon’s end-game of death [death must exceed life, to give life (to a chosen few)] !! – MAMMON BY ITS VERY NATURE TAKES LIFE, ONLY GOD IS GIVER OF LIFE !! – a CHRIST-IAN is one *in* the HOLY “name” of JESUS [my God is SALVATION] the CHRIST [the ANOINTED, the anointing (our response-ability); the HOLY SPIRIT]; EVERY THOUGHT MUST BE *OF* SALVATION [healing] *AS* THE ANOINTED OF GOD [our Being] unto RIGHTEOUSNESS [our Doing] !! – if we are part of the hurt [the disease of Mammon], then we are NOT the “healers” [of Salvation, of "Jesus"]; if our thoughts are *in* the world [“kosmos” systemic], then we are NOT acting as the Anointed [Body of "Christ"], we are grieving the *Holy* Spirit [the very mind(-ing) of God]; our “minds” must be Holy [the result of our being and doing (our conversion)]; 1 Peter 1:15-16 “But as he which hath called you is Holy, so be ye Holy in *all* manner of conversation (Lexicon G391, manner of life, conduct, behavior); Because it is written, Be ye Holy; for I am Holy.” … “as God is, so are we in the world [kosmos]” vs. Mammon’s unholy psychosis [unrighteousness], negating our response-ability !!

MM Book 1 Chapter 1-13

Christian “resistance” *is* understanding NOT a “fighting with shadows, or imaginary enemies” … we must understand NOT resist; resisting actually increases the evil; we have been fighting with shadows; we are fighting forces that are empowered by our *not* understanding their nature … the “relationship of self” with these forces, our mindset: THE POWER OF EVIL IS DECEPTION, THE POWER OF GOD IS *TRUTH* !! – OUR FALSE DEFINITIONS EXIST BY, AND DEMAND THE EVIL, AND EVIL IS THE LACK OF UNDERSTANDING [a good understanding have all they who obey God's Commandments (our being and doing: character of God); KNOWLEDGE OF THE HOLY IS TO *DEPART* FROM EVIL (withdrawal and expatriation); our "relationship of self" with Mammon ("love" of money: profane "friendship, association" with the world; the unequal yoke; instru-mentality)] !! – WE MUST REALIZE [and understand] THAT THE OPPRESSOR CANNOT EXIST WITHOUT THE OPPRESSED !! – Our God is “self-existent” [Jehovah], “oppression in any form” has nothing to do with God !!

MM Book 1 Chapter 1-14

Corporate business is the exploitation of our human-ity, of our very “being” [and doing]; we [and God] have been usurped, profit is a “proceed from crime” and the crime *is* “business” [crime(s) against humanity: war and oppression, slavery] – God will invoke forfeiture and seizure from us, *for* us: common-wealth will be instituted: corporate monies will be abolished, all claim will be terminated; MERCY AND TRUTH WILL COVER THE LAND [minds for God vs. minds for business] !! – a “society of the gift” is a society well *beyond* cooperation, it is a society of unselfish love, many “agape” communities considered as one, where well-being and enhancement of all [God's Way] is the primary principle and consideration [in all things] !! – the “self” stands opposed to God in our “being and doing”, this is our adversary [the "adversary" personified]; everything done in service of self(-ishness) is evil [personal gain at the expense of another] – GOD IS A COMPLETE CHANGE OF MIND(-ing): PERFECT, PURE, ENCOMPASSING THOUGHT !! – we are to take care of each other: we are one in being and doing vs. monied privilege as selfish excuse ["money" replacing, opposed to, our God(-ing)], expressing our spiritual poverty [wealth creates poverty, needs poverty, *is*poverty, physically and spiritually; islands of wealth are dependent upon a sea of poverty to meet their needs and demands (our lusts and privileges are a demand on others, a taking); business (mind-ing) is a taking for "self"] !!

MM Book 1 Chapter 1-15

Mammon is the means and excuse of evil [individual and systemic]; you do not own or possess Mammon, Mammon owns and possesses you … Mammon is cumulative, it requires our participation, MAMMON NEEDS US !! – the roots and tentacles of Mammon run deep and spread wide, yet Mammon is regarded as innocuous [harmless when governed], but its injury and harm is defined all around us [the banality of evil; Mammon governs us]; it is the ocean [the sea] we are enveloped in, the unquestioned paradigm, our ultimate truth and reality [and created as such]: MAMMON IS INIMICAL [in opposition; adverse; hostile] TO GOD(-ing) !! – Mammon is “service to the economy” [growth at any cost, regardless; Mammon requires, demands sacrifice from us]; God(-ing) is “eco-nomy in the service of community” in love [God has sacrificed for us] !! — an indentured master/slave relationship is NOT the relationship of God, it is abrogation of God [Being: equity, love; Doing: righteousness, wisdom]; we must remove the corporate for an “organic”, true definition !! – GOD IS A POSSIBILITY vs. THE OPPRESSING MIND OF MAMMON [the spirit of money]; full light vs. the darkness; agape love reveals God and makes God(-ing) possible !!

MM Book 1 Chapter 1-16

Mammon is imposition, conflict and war; God is agape love, gifting and peace; 10C [character of God] vs. the way of Mammon: THOU SHALT NOT MAMMON !! – our SALVATION is the eradication [purpose: to destroy the works of the devil] of Mammon – who is mind-ing us, Mammon or Messiah ?? – our history, our laws [economic, business and legal], our social contracts are the record, the scripture and the covenants of Mammon: WE HAVE *NO* EXCUSE !! – THE PRIESTS AND CAPTAINS OF MAMMON MUST BE REPLACED BY THE PRIESTHOOD OF CHRIST, THE CAPTAIN OF OUR SALVATION [Heb 2:10] !! – we must understand [being] and know [doing] God: we give life to each other, we do *not* fund it, we give and share what God has given and shared with us !! – our identity must be the reality of Christ as Christ-ian *NOT* the false reality, the artificial identity of Mammon as American, Canadian, etc., the imposed corporate identity: GOD IS REAL [reality: truth and love], MAMMON IS A FALSE WAY OF LIFE [by its very nature, rewards are few, hurts are many (psychological damage, scarring); adversarial adversity vs. love] !! – MAMMON IS THE USURPATIVE [unlawful, violent seizure; without right; usurpation over and upon] AGENCY [active force; power; instrumentality] OF THE DEVIL: IF WE ARE MAMMON, THEN WE ARE THE DEVIL, THE ENEMY OF GOD [enmity with; opposed] !!

MM Book 1 Chapter 1-17

Mammon [the "mind" of money] PREVENTS MOST GOD-ING [its "charity" does not fit the definition of God; filthy water does not clean our robes] !! – our selfish “definitions” [taking for self] do NOT give us “right of God”, they are the purposeful negation of God(-ing), our evil defined clearly and distinctly before our God, WE WILL HAVE TO GIVE ANSWER TO HIM !! – MAMMON IS THE THEFT OF CHRIST-IAN RIGHT AND OPPORTUNITY TO GIFT !! – God(-ing) is outside of self [the others profit and well-being; EXPRESSION], Mammon is inside of self [POSSESSION (even of God); self-fulfillment] – self-designation [and claim] negates itself ["by their works you shall know them"], claimed “being” is nothing [faith without works is dead]; if our works are Mammon, then we are Mammon [the unrighteous claim of righteousness] !! – Mammon IS “CLAIM OF SELF” IN ALL THINGS, ELIJAH [our choice of God(-ing) (vs. Baal/ Mammon)] WILL *RESTORE* ALL THINGS !!

MM Book 1 Chapter 1-18

A “new” America exists, where supposed [monied] freedoms are subverted by those claiming to protect them; corporate-business as overriding concern necessitates an increasing concentration of wealth [globalization; warfare] engendering increasing violence and protection from the same – selfishness protected by greed and paranoia, the increasing power claimed as [proof of] [seeming] infallibility [the divine right of capital]: MAMMON AS TYRANT !! — tax-”payer”, share-”holder”, the rights and benefits of corporatism [to the exclusion of all else, including God]; the exercise of Mammon [business], the destructive growth of its false, private eco-nomy by profit-”taking” [NOT by profit-"giving"] vs. holistic, cooperative, community stewardship, sharing all increase as gift – the “cost” of Mammon is too great for us [and the planet (life-support)] to bear: WE ARE TAKING, MURDERING LIFE [the death of God(-ing)] !! – MAMMON IS ENSLAVEMENT AND MURDER [physically and spiritually]: ITS CHAIN(S) AND WEAPON OF CHOICE IS ITS MONEY [debt and force; "funding" life equated as giving life] !!

MM Book 1 Chapter 1-19

Mammon today is the Mammon of yesterday, but the “economies of scale” of today’s “giants”, the covering over mankind, the height, reach and depth, is enormous, so enormous that God is equated with/as Mammon [no difference seen between Holy and profane (not sacred; outside of the Temple; irreverent disrespect, contempt of God); the success/excess of the profane seen as sanction of God (gain as Godliness)] !! – Mammon has claimed the “provision of God” and has assumed the role of “provider” of need [commodification of life] and of desired want [mostly irresponsible lust manufactured by Mammon], this is its “power” over/upon us, it has claimed “life” in-place-of God, and holds it by force ["Mammon's life" preeminent in *all* considerations; life, even God, in service of Mammon] !! – Christ-ian-ity is the reclamation [re-claim; restoration] of God as provider, *as* LIFE GIVER [without money (commodification), without price (claim): buying and selling God (life), the "mark" of the Beast systemic] !!

MM Book 1 Chapter 1-20

The instrumentation and idols of wealth [gold, silver, etc., commodity] as “defined and accepted” by man, is *NOT* the enrichment envisioned by God: agape love gifted in an open, reciprocal commons [commonwealth], not selfish claim and commodification, our personal enrichment at the expense of another, even personal claim and (ab)use of God(-ing) as our justification !! – God’s gifts are to be received [to gift], not taken [to keep]; God freely gifts to all who will receive, without evil commodification and claim [without money, without price], and this is applied to *all* things: all that has been taken, will be taken back (forfeiture), to be freely given again [all to eat sufficiently, wearing durable clothing (Isa 23:18)] !! – as our spiritual illness is cured, our physical needs and health will follow [personal and social (community)]: pure truth and food [manna: Christ (Bread of Life)], everlasting robes of righteousness [durable: enduring much work and application] !! – our polluted and povertized nourishment [malnutrition], and our Mammonized business concept of built-in obsolescence [perpetual continuity of return (future not built-in); purposeful lack of durability and compatibility (past not built-in): our evil, selfish disregard of the past and of the future (as concern)] will be abolished, will cease to exist !! – GOD’S LOVE IS YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND TOMORROW !!

MM Book 1 Chapter 1-21

We must preserve our future, we are the stewards, the keepers of it !! – when the Truth of God replaces the error in our heart and mind, then we will understand and give regard [our shame will cover us at that moment (instead of the Glory of God), we will be consumed by it: but God is Mercy as-well-as Truth], the Flame of Truth will light the Way of God !! – our Mammonized denial of brotherhood, of unselfish love, IS A DENIAL OF THE VERY BEING OF ALMIGHTY GOD HIMSELF AND OF CHRIST !! – if we are “defined” by Mammon, then we are NOT *of* Christ, we cannot serve [obey and worship; re: Elijah (Baal or God)] two “masters” [the mastery of Mammon is very apparent in this, *our* world (kosmos)] !! – when our desire [our unselfish love] for another becomes hurtful to [in the sense of liberty or emotion], or impedes, that very same person, then we must withdraw [as gift]; desire must not turn into lust [taking], it must become friendship: this applies to all persons, things, and situations, physically and spiritually !! – LOVE [as Being] *IS* GOD(-ing) !! – Love as Being and Doing *is* enhancement of the other, a reciprocal relationship, where much is given and received, but where nothing is taken !! – who and what we are must be a gift(-ing), a sharing with others, a celebration [open convivium] of life, of God: AN ENRICHMENT OF EACH OTHER !!

MM Book 1 Chapter 1-22

The most powerful entity “in this world” today is a Christ-ian “being” [applying God (the doing)]; AS GOD *IS* SO ARE WE IN THIS WORLD [kosmos] !! – THIS IS OUR MINISTRY OF RECONCILIATION, everything that we are and do *is* our ministry; our existence is *of* our God: Mammon or Messiah – if we repent [of unrighteous Mammon; sin (our lack of God) washed away, our "being" cleansed in the blood of Christ, our "doing" forgiven] and willingly receive the “anointing”, then we are of Messiah [dead to the world, alive in Christ]; returning again to Mammon is equated to our “second death” [alive again in the world, becoming dead to Christ; faith without works (to believe in and on Christ: our being and doing) is dead; the wages of sin is death], necessitating the washing [in the blood of Christ] of our “filthy” robes [of unrighteousness] !! – Mammon and Messiah are two divergent “ways of being” [and "means of existence"] – WE MUST CHOOSE !! — the corporate “form” is Mammon; the “Mark of the Beast” [systemic] is Mammon [being (forehead) and doing (hand); the buying and selling of life (of God)]; the “Laodicean” spiritual condition is Mammon !! – “self” is *enabled* by Mammon: all unrighteousness and wickedness are *of* Mammon [kosmos: evil works] !! – ** MAMMON IS DIAMETRICALLY OPPOSED TO MESSIAH !! **

MM Book 1 Chapter 1-23

Extrication from a systemic, a way of life that is globally defined, is only possible by-and-through Christ !! – Mammon wears a velvet glove over an iron fist !! – our [individual and social-group] self-perception is out-of-step with Christ’s; God’s Word discloses that we are mostly acting out of self-interest, that our “definition” is of Mammon !! – we are immersed in the paradigm, the mind-set, the use [corporate excuse] of freedom, democracy, constitution [human/social rights], etc., the prejudiced [legal] terms of Mammon [mimicking God]; God is “equity for all”, righteous and pure agape love covering all of human-kind [one family], NOT prejudiced, selfish Nation-States claiming and taking “in the name” and “in the service” of Mammon !! – our Nations are Mammon’s lesser-gods adept at mimicry of Messiah; they are prejudiced claim, demand, and (ab)use of a Mammonized god(-ing) !! – our citizenship [Israel] must be “wholly conformed” to the Gospel: this precludes our national identities, our complicity in Mammon, our prejudiced “citizen” claim/benefit !! – our “essential being” [our intrinsic (inherent), fundamental nature; our very inner being, our inward nature] must be of God, not the Adversary !!

MM Book 1 Chapter 1-24

Business is the conversion of “God’s wealth” into selfish Mammon; the appropriation of God’s “name” ADONAI by an act of theft [worship in vain] !! – “wealth authority” must be challenged, made worthless, “infinite greed” must be replaced by “eternal agape love(-ing)” of-and-by our God(-ing) !! – Mammon undermines our knowledge, understanding and wisdom; Christ-ian-ity is a WAY OF LIFE that does NOT include and/or utilize Mammon [politics/nations, war/media, capitalization/corporate form and its money, consumerism variants and support, pollution/waste, private interest/wealth, etc.], in-short, the way of life we know today, this evil kosmos made in the “image and likeness” of Mammon [the devil's character: the "Faith of the Fallen"] – MAMMON/BUSINESS IS UNHOLY !!

MM Book 1 Chapter 1-25

All of us have lessons to learn from time to time; we all slip, but God has given us repentance: we are privileged to “remorse” in understanding, to ask forgiveness and continue in learning and overcoming; sometimes we seemingly need a reminder of our fallibility [non-intentional; caught in the moment] to keep us humble “in our need of God” !! – we have to be, must be, re-invented to continue the journey: the journey changes us, we do not change the journey [the course; the way]; we have been “brain-washed” by the sewer water of this world: the filth of its corrupt and compromised society, its arrogant self-absorption, its “sanitized” corporate media, its selfish termination of redundancy [what it considers unnecessary, dismissed, excess, overabundant, even humans considered so] – WE MUST DECONSTRUCT THE MAMMON !!

MM Book 1 Chapter 1-26

We must achieve excellence of character [10C], mind and ability to gift the other: the gift of equity by “gift of self” – WE *ARE* EACH OTHER !! – our emotional turmoil is shared by all, we are all affected; the corporate oppression and use of its engendered selfishness is “equity” of the lowest common denominator, and Mammon thrives by its embrace: slavery called freedom !! – THE “HIGH CALLING OF GOD” IS *EQUITY* OF THE HIGHEST ORDER: THE HOLY CHARACTER OF GOD THE FATHER HIMSELF, AND OF OUR CHRIST [our anointing as body of] … AS HE IS, SO ARE WE IN THIS WORLD: SAVIORS [healers] !! – WE *ARE* THE PRAYER, THE SACRED EXPRESSION, RE-COGNITION [being as prayer] OF LIFE [of God], SEEKING GOD’S WILL *FOR* US, BY US !!

MM Book 1 Chapter 1-27
