As a crucial component in the creation of the Global Gold Monetary Fund (“GGMF”), this Open Letter to the Nations was written by the founding members and is directed towards all governments and people around the world.
The ideas expressed in the letter were used to bring the founders together under a Christian worldview, which is grounded in Jesus’ love for all individuals, regardless of their nationality. The letter reflects the group’s beliefs, objectives, and aspirations during the development of the GGMF, from its inception to the drafting of the Articles of Agreement.
Without a shared approach and worldview, the unanimous adoption of these articles would have been impossible. This document was created with much prayer and outlines the Christian perspectives, motives, wishes, and expectations of the 39 founders. It is not meant to impose any spiritual or religious beliefs on those who come from various cultures, religions, or hold different views. The fund exists to benefit all individuals in all Nations, irrespective of their religious, political, cultural, or ethnic backgrounds.
During Creation, God created and strategically deposited enough gold on earth to meet all our needs as a monetary unit and as a store of God-given wealth. The replacement of gold by fiat currency has led to the enslavement of Nations and their people through a leveraged process of debt creation known as fractional reserve banking. This system was designed to replace our dependence on God with an unholy Grail of worthless paper money that gives a powerful elite the ability to enslave entire populations.
A return to gold as a medium of exchange is a return to God’s provision and a way to address the debt trap created by fiat currency.
From the beginning, God planned to bless and increase humanity. Even after Adam and Eve sinned, God continued to reveal His plan to bless humanity through various means, culminating in Jesus Christ’s finished works on the cross.
When we receive Jesus as our Saviour, we receive everything He came to provide, including physical, mental, spiritual, relational, and financial liberty. God’s will is to prosper and meet our needs, and the blessings of the Lord are manifested in both the spiritual and natural realms. As we are declared righteous by God, we receive the blessings of the Lord upon our lives, which are plentiful and can be found in the books of Psalms and Proverbs.
It is Time to Return to God.
Humanity is currently facing a crucial point in its history. Some will see great wisdom in looking to God for answers to the world’s ills, some will not. National leaders who prioritize the welfare of their citizens should carefully consider the contents of this open letter instead of dismissing it as an unrealistic notion. It’s not our intention to persuade everyone, but only those who possess an open mind and comprehend the pressing importance of our message.
What happens when God moves to answer prayers, to redress injustices, to judge evil, to liberate captives, to defend the poor and needy, to expose abusive practices, to relieve oppression, or to deal with those who oppose Him? Here is a good example.
God told Moses: “I have surely seen the oppression of My people who are in Egypt, and have heard their cry because of their taskmasters, for I know their sorrows. “So, I have come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up from that land to a good and large land, to a land flowing with milk and honey” … He added: “I have also seen the oppression with which the Egyptians oppress them.” Then, God performed miracles after miracles through Moses … striking the Egyptians with ten consecutive plagues of blood, frogs, gnats, flies, livestock, boils, hail, locusts, darkness, and the death of all the firstborn of Egypt (people and animals) at Passover. Pharaoh lost and ultimately gave up but not before great suffering and pain. All the people of Egypt suffered because of the pride and hard headedness of one man.
God also did some extraordinary things so that the people would not leave Egypt empty-handed. He handed over to them all the gold and silver of Egypt thus fulfilling what He had promised: “So, you shall plunder the Egyptians.”
He then proceeded to part the red sea so that a vast group of people could cross over to the promised land on dry land but destroyed the Egyptian army as they tried to pursue them through the open passageway. For 40 long years, God fed more an entire nation and their animals supernaturally with a perfectly calibrated daily dose of manna from Heaven for each person.
In the same way that God heard the cry of the people then, He has also now heard the cry of the oppressed, the abused, and those who are captive to a financial system that keeps them in bondage.
The world is about to experience an exodus of a different kind, that of those who will be supernaturally liberated from a fiat currency system of banking driven by greed that has dishonored God and abused people through deceitful schemes, practices and laws that conjure up money created from thin air to control, manipulate, and indenture people and Nations for political or other objectives. This modern-day exodus will also extend to all those who have been kept in spiritual slavery, but that is a different subject.
The Source and Cause of Modern-day Slavery
Throughout history, men’s greed caused them to use gold for much evil. Gold has fueled wars It has been used to grab power, to control individuals and communities, to dominate and dictate the rules of economic life, to fuel greed, as well as to support the implementation of nefarious agendas. Instead of worshipping the Creator of all things, societies have worshipped idols made of gold. Gold has been hoarded, stolen, leveraged, and manipulated for centuries by a cabal bent on implementing and sustaining the Golden Rule: “He who holds the gold makes the rules.”
Perhaps the greatest evil is that our God-given form of wealth (gold) has been replaced by a fiat currency placed into circulation as a medium of exchange that is not backed by any commodity (historically gold or silver) or tangible asset. It is merely a promissory note of the issuer.
Replacing the proven track record of God’s gold as a stable store of value for millenniums, by a worthless paper currency (a banker’s promissory note) was nothing more than a return to modern-day slavery, disguised as a new form of market-driven economic capitalism touted to ostensibly liberate mankind. It was the fulfillment of this prophetic declaration: “The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is slave to the lender.”
Slavery takes many forms. Some obvious, some less obvious. The issuance and distribution of paper currency – ”fiat currency” created out of thin air – is one of those non-obvious forms of slavery. Because the entire money creation system is shrouded in complexities and secrecy, bankers duplicitously got away with calling it “money,” to give it a false perception of stored value. This gave rise to today’s “global fiat currency system”, designed to enslave entire populations through a leveraged process of debt creation known as “fractional reserve banking.”
This “global fiat currency system” was designed to replace our dependence on a Holy God, who promised to meet all our basic daily needs, with an unholy Grail of worthless paper money which gives a rich and powerful greed-driven elite the ability to create “wealth” out of nothing to control, ring-fence, and enslave entire unsuspecting populations. These elites made worthless paper currency become a god that is worshipped … and the divide between the rich and the poor never-ending. King Solomon wrote: “Whoever loves money never has enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with their income.” The Apostle Paul later wrote: “the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil.” Such evil is best illustrated in these famous words of a prominent European banker: “Permit me to issue and control the money of the nation and I care not who makes its laws.”
It is the replacement of God as the giver of all good gifts by a man-centric approach to wealth creation that was and continues to be evil. It has led Nations and their people to find more contentment and well-being in a bank account, lined with fiat currencies, rather than from a daily reliance on God for security, protection, good health, and provision.
A return to gold as a medium of exchange is a return to God’s provision for all who for millennia have been deceptively enslaved. God has not forgotten them. Our contention and firm belief are that our God is now preparing to address this wickedness.
The fiat currency system is a debt trap of unimaginable proportions. To address this ever-increasing level of indebtedness, Nations and their citizens must continually exchange their God-given knowledge, abilities, and work sweat equity for worthless fiat currencies.
The founders of the Fund contend that by replacing the global fiat monetary system with the true wealth God has always intended for the Nations, they will experience true Social Shalom (it means so much more than “peace,” it means Full Flourishing). On that day God’s river will bring life to all, including those who live downstream. No longer will it be necessary to dam up the river if we obediently return to God’s principles.
The case for Gold – God’s Gold!
Since 1971 when the U.S. and the rest of the world went off the gold standard, gold money has been replaced with inherently-worthless, government-imposed, paper notes, or debt obligations of the issuer. Such debt instruments have no “store of value” attributes one would expect from a monetary system that is supposed to deliver stability, predictability, and sustainability. Instead, commercial transactions of goods and services are settled by exchanging the serial numbers of one Monopoly funny money for another. Even in international trade transactions settlements occur by exchanging the fiat confetti paper of one Nation for that of another.
Since 1913 when the US Federal Reserve Bank was created, the value of the Dollar has decreased between 97% and 98% to account for the effect of compounded inflation. In countries like Zimbabwe, Brazil, or Argentina the devaluation of their currencies caused by successive waves of hyperinflation had massively debilitating impact on the economy and the people of these Nations.
In Argentina alone, hyperinflation exploded in 1989. It was the final stage of a chronic inflationary process that began in 1945 and lasted forty-five years between 1980 and 1989, during which inflation peaked to 4,923% thanks to unbridled monetary growth.
In an article by J. B. Shurk of the Gatestone Institute, the author describes what happened in the United States from 1913 to circa 1935: “By slowly replacing the use of gold coins with mandated paper currencies, Nation states have engaged in a bit of hocus-pocus to conjure funny money out of thin air. Although the particular order of events has been different for different Nations over the last century and a half, the important steps have all been the same: First, some form of paper money is introduced and backed by the government’s promise to pay the holder of each note a fixed sum in gold or silver. Next, the introduction of a private central bank comes into existence holding a de facto monopoly power to print paper money according to its best judgment for maintaining a healthy national economy. Finally, the gold or silver backing of those paper money currencies is revoked.” He concludes with this sad assessment: “This rather Machiavellian switcheroo has enabled governments to spend money like drunken sailors precisely because central banks right across the street will buy up their debt and facilitate the printing of more money.”
If a house today is worth twenty times more today than it was in 1950, it is not that the house has increased in value. Rather, its current market value merely reflects the decreasing purchasing power of the US Dollar. The free-fall decline accelerated after 1971 when the US decoupled its currency from gold backing. It is also the devaluing buying power of the currency that pushed the price of gold from $35 an ounce to over $2,000 today. The inherent and intrinsic value of gold remained unchanged during that same period.
Many believe that gold will increase to $5,000 or more and it is a good investment. If one’s objective is to buy and hold physical gold, it is a wise alternative indeed, but only for the short term. When all fiat currencies vanish into oblivion, as they all will, how will one fractionalize and use a gold coin worth $1,000 to pay for a haircut worth $30? If one invests in gold merely to ride the bull wave to the top, consider that gold at $5,000 or even $1,000,000 an ounce is no more valuable than yesterday’s gold when it was worth $2,000. It is all the same Monopoly funny money designed to promote an illusion of wealth. It is not real wealth.
As long as we all continue to admire and praise the beauty of the emperor’s invisible clothes, governments, central bankers, and politicians may be able to delay the inevitable by kicking the can down the road with one illusionary magic trick after another. Even though this passenger ship is visibly listing and taking-on water, most people find it more convenient to turn a blind eye to the reality of the situation because the consequence of a globally failing financial experiment is too painful to consider or even address. When the little child finally declares for all to hear that the emperor is naked and has no clothes, and each person in the crowd begins to echo the voice of the child, the musical chair will stop. It will be sudden. It will be catastrophic. All fiat currency systems will sooner or later have the same end as the Titanic. This is today’s reality.
The quote ascribed to Edmund Burke: “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing” is a clear warning to us all and an invitation to wake-up and take responsibility for our individual part in having admired the emperor’s invisible clothes for way too long. We have all stacked-up our own domino of greed and covetousness in a long chain that is easily toppled when the first domino falls – a process which is near impossible to stop.
A switch to a central bank digital currency (CBDC) is not the answer, Because of the extreme dangers it represents, it would equate to jumping from the frying pan into the fire. Neither is a return to a new crypto-currency or digital currency. A return to God is the only route of escape for humanity and for the governments of the world. This is the main purpose of this letter. Let me explain.
God’s Storehouses are Sufficient
Since Creation, gold has been a widely accepted medium of exchange, a stable store of value that was used to definitively settle barter transactions and commercial trades. Because of its wide use and acceptance, it became the preferred way of storing wealth. In Biblical times the rarity of gold gave it its monetary value and it gained momentum as a widely used and accepted medium of exchange because it was perceived to have unique and unchanging intrinsic value.
During Creation, God created and strategically deposited enough gold on earth to meet all our needs as a monetary unit and as a store of God-given wealth. Since it is virtually indestructible and cannot be created again, God distributed the gold in just the right quantities and places to accomplish His penultimate purposes for humanity.
The Holy Bible discloses the existence of Heavenly storehouses of rain, thunder, lightning, wind, snow, or hail, even food. It also reveals that God’s Treasuries also have an ample supply of pure gold, silver, precious stones, pearls, crystals, and other costly goods Far more gold exists in the world today than is imagined, estimated, or stated as fact by all the ostensible experts.
In reality, all the estimates of how much gold has been produced since the creation of the world are far less than what is readily available as refined (24 carat or 99.99% purity) or not fully purified gold (e.g., 23 carat doré bars). Even without the multiplication process, there is sufficient gold on earth to liberate humanity from the bondage and tyranny of global fiat currencies and eradicate poverty if gold is allowed to become a globally accepted medium of exchange.
Economic experts may contend that there isn’t enough gold in the world to accomplish these objectives. We disagree! The heart of the issue from God’s vantage point is twofold. It is not whether there is a sufficient quantity of gold in the world to meet the human community’s every need, but what Nations and their citizens will do to prevent the worship of gold, rather than God, the creator who owns it all. Greed may have been the reason why the doors to Heaven’s storehouse of gold have remained shut.
When God opens a door in Heaven, no one can shut it. Just like the manna that appeared daily in the exact amount needed to sustain a Nation on the move, so will it be when the doors of Heaven’s storehouses are opened to meet human needs. God is in the process of redeeming what belongs to Him – all that was hoarded, hidden, or stolen, and from anyone who erred in their stewardship and allowed fear or greed to drive them instead of taking risks to serve God’s purposes. God will use it to bless and liberate rather than enslave and control.
Manna appeared on the ground every morning for forty years in precisely calibrated quantities that met the exact daily needs of an entire Nation on the move; so, will it be with the Gold Units needed to sustain the world.
In the end, it is all a matter of individual faith anchored in the bedrock foundation that God is faithful even when we are unfaithful, and He loves and cares for each of us, and He will provide for ALL our daily needs.
Only A Return To God Can Save Us.
The fiat currency system that emerged in 1971 is the most dangerous and pernicious Ponzi scheme ever devised. The “brilliant” financial minds of this world have given birth to a beast whose ever-increasing appetite for more printed money and more debt is insatiable. If it self-destructs it will simultaneously destroy all economies of the world.
For decades, the complex mechanics of fractional reserve banking, leverage, interest compounding, present and future values, discounting, arbitrage, futures, and derivatives have cloaked the beast to allow it to grow to an unfathomable dimension due to its gargantuan appetite for more fiat currencies printed out of thin air and with no asset-backing of any kind.
Since indebtedness incurred in funny money has been given legal teeth to make it enforceable against borrower who default on their obligation, the evil that indentures people and Nations with funny money is self-evident. This piece of prophetic wisdom, “the rich governs over the poor, and the borrower becomes the lender’s servant,” has come to fruition.”
Consider now the beast of derivative financial instrument which makes the first beast of fractional reserve banking pale by comparison. Through a series of financial gimmicks and highly complex and shady practices, the printing presses of money creation have been used to grow this second beast into a giant so tall that it is impossible to even see its face from the ground. Artificially created debts instruments financed with play money has mushroomed to an estimated $2.5 and $3.0 quadrillion of financial exposure for the world’s monetary system. If that bubble bursts, and it will, all banks will fail simultaneously, bringing with it a level of chaos never experienced before in the history of mankind.
Sooner or later, all humans on earth will be seriously impacted unless we take urgent action to take the legal teeth out of these debt instruments by extinguishing all debts – a jubilee of sort.
This is why God required all debts be forgiven every 50 years, a jubilee that is proclaimed in the land in order to reset the debt counter to zero for all people. Only a fresh new beginning through the proclamation of a jubilee that cancels all debts payable in fiat currency can provide a long-term solution, as all temporary fixes, even those proposed by well-meaning individuals, will not have a lasting impact. At this point, the most important course of action is a penitent return to God’s principles.
In the Bible, God exhorts us to return to Him. He promises: “’Follow my decrees and be careful to obey my laws, and you will live safely in the land. Then the land will yield its fruit, and you will eat your fill and live there in safety.” We need to listen and pay attention to what God says.
What will this Modern-day Exodus look like?
God asks each one of us a rhetoric question. More than a question it is a statement about Himself as a reliable and trustworthy provider in who we can place our faith and confidence.
God asks: “if instead of 5,000 people Jesus fed, there had been 100,000 or 1 million people, how much bread would Jesus have needed to feed such a hungry crowd”. The answer is evident. If God could multiply five loaves that satiated the appetite of 5,000 hungry people, the same multiplication process applied to the original 5 loaves will feed any number of people.
In this circumstance a relationship with the one who multiplies is far more beneficial than the enjoyment of a satisfying meal. God wants each of us to know Him personally and to have a practical experience of His presence and the abundant provisions for those who fully trust Him.
The loaves did not miraculously multiply in the baskets before the disciples handed them out; they multiplied as they were being obediently handed out by faith. Jesus only blessed, broke, and gave the initial five loaves and 2 fishes to be passed out. It is the disciples’ faith and obedience in the one who gave the order that produced the miracle of multiplication.
The same principle of multiplication applies to gold, oil, or any crop. God can use a single bar of gold to liberate the entire world from debt slavery. A single atom of gold received from God by faith as a gift and with thanksgiving, is sufficient to trigger a process of multiplication that will not stop until the world is entirely liberated from debt slavery. The notion that there is not enough gold in the world to allow a financial system to sustain economic growth is a lie that comes straight from the pit of hell.
Nothing illustrates this principle better that the story of a widow who was going to experience God’s provision in a fresh new way. While a three-year drought and famine was at its peak in the land, God directed Elijah to go to a widow. God told him “Go at once to Zarephath in the region of Sidon and stay there. I have directed a widow there to supply you with food.” God had expressly sent Elijah to the one person least able to meet his daily needs, for he was about to discover this widow was destitute and near death.
When he asked her for some bread to eat, she replied: “As surely as the LORD your God lives,” she replied, “I don’t have any bread–only a handful of flour in a jar and a little olive oil in a jug. I am gathering a few sticks to take home and make a meal for myself and my son, that we may eat it–and die.” Elijah said to her, “Don’t be afraid. Go home and do as you have said. But first make a small loaf of bread for me from what you have and bring it to me, and then make something for yourself and your son. For this is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: ‘The jar of flour will not be used up and the jug of oil will not run dry until the day the LORD sends rain on the land.’ “ She went away and did as Elijah had told her. So, there was food every day for Elijah and for the woman and her family.”
These are important lessons concerning the nature of God. He is a multiplying God. If the same five loaves were sufficient to feed 5,000 people or 100 million people, so it will be for God’s gold. God can multiply his blessings in ways we can barely comprehend.
Our issue is not about gold but about a relationship with the one who multiplies the bread, the gold, the rain, the oil, and the fishes. When this multiplying God is on our side, all our needs will be met. Jesus said: “If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!
Membership in the Global Gold Monetary Fund IS NOT ABOUT returning to a gold standard or gold as a store of wealth, but about returning to God’s principles of equity and justice for all and accepting His ultimate Lordship over us. This is why its symbolic gold coin says: “Holy to Yahweh”.
Some will accept, some will reject. That’s their choice. For many GGMF will be a financial ark of sort as it will allow them to survive the coming financial flood that will destroy many. Sadly, for many they will perish. Jesus said: “as it was in the days of Noah, so will bit be at the time of the return of the Son of Man”.
All the Nations that adopt GGMF’s gold monetary units as a medium of exchange and accept that it is “Holy to Yahweh” and pleasing to Him will experience God’s blessings and provisions both personally and corporately in ways rarely experienced before. God made these promises to those who obey “you will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country. The fruit of your womb will be blessed, and the crops of your land and the young of your livestock–the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks. Your basket and your kneading trough will be blessed. You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out.” We can rely on such promises with no hesitation.
All the Gold in the World Belongs to God.
It is vitally important for us to understand who God is. In the Bible God declares, “The earth is the LORD’s, and all its fullness, The world and those who dwell therein;” His dominion shall be ‘from sea to sea, and from the River to the ends of the earth;’ and more to our subject … ‘The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,’ says the LORD of hosts.
God permits evil to flourish, that is, until its increasing weight tips the scales of God’s patience, mercy, and grace. When scales tip over, as it has in the past, His righteous anger overflows. He has and will move swiftly to redress the wrong and achieve His penultimate purposes. It is the understanding of this principle that allowed Joseph to say to his brothers who had done him wrong: “Don’t be afraid. Am I in the place of God? You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. So then, don’t be afraid. I will provide for you and your children.” And he reassured them and spoke kindly to them.”
We further contend that God is in the process of redeeming all the gold and silver that belongs to Him to set captives (slaves) free throughout the world. Jesus’ principal mission on earth was to “set captives free.” His mission continues through His willing servants. This Fund is a part of God’s plan to redress the wrong.
All the gold in the world is part of God’s Heavenly Treasuries. It will be fully and completely available to us if it is used to set captives free.
Every Nation that makes the decision to return to gold as a medium of exchange and a stable store of value will experience the providential blessing of God in surprising ways. True freedom from debt slavery will come when a Government makes the conscious decision to permanently cut the umbilical cord that has heretofore replaced true wealth (gold) with a valueless system of fiat currencies. When the intrinsic value of gold regains its proper place, Nations will begin to flourish and thrive anew.
Our finite minds cannot grasp the vastness of God’s Heavenly Treasures and His awesome greatness and glory. We understand even less how He has placed it on earth to manifest His pleasure and blessing upon the children of man.
When the Roman taxes needed to be paid, Jesus directed his disciples to go and catch a fish so that a gold coin from the treasuries of Heaven would miraculously appear in the mouth of a fish to pay the taxes they owed.
Having bread to eat for a day is a good thing but having an intimate personal relationship with the One who will continually meet our every need on a daily basis is of far greater worth. Let us draw near to God and let us place our trust in Him.
Nature and Purpose of the Current Wealth Transfer.
King Solomon, the wisest and wealthiest man who ever lived wrote, “To the man who pleases him, God gives wisdom, knowledge, and happiness, but to the sinner he gives the task of gathering and storing up wealth to hand it over to the one who pleases God.”
These are the days we are now reliving. We are about to experience an amazing transfer of real wealth (gold) from those who live for themselves and their selfish ambitions, to those who please God, live for Him, and serve Him with wholehearted devotion and sincere hearts. Since He owns all the gold in the world, it will be His good pleasure to give it to whomever He pleases.
God desires that we should all know Him and glorify Him with our whole being and all our possessions. Therefore, God invites each of us to “test” Him to see if, as a result of our turning to Him and being obedient to His commands, He will not pour out so much blessing that we will not have room enough to contain it.
Our focus should never be on gold or the accumulation of gold as an end-in-itself. What matters is that we turn to God with all our minds, hearts, and souls. When we pursue God with an open heart, we will find Him. This process is what transforms a vertical relationship into unlimited horizontal opportunities for blessings through human hands driven by faith, and service in honor of Him.
The vision God gave the 39 founders was a challenge they received and took to heart. God, speaking through the Prophet Isaiah pointed out to each of them: “Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter–when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood? Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard. Then you will call, and the LORD will answer; you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I. If you do away with the yoke of oppression, with the pointing finger and malicious talk, and if you spend yourselves on behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday. The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail. Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.”
Concerning the early church, right after Jesus’ resurrection and ascension to Heaven, it is written, “they sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need.” Their open-handed attitude with God’s assets was, in and of itself, the evidence of a deep faith in God. They had learned to be lavish givers, just as God is a lavish giver. Their obedience in sharing what they had with those that had needs brought glory to God. As a result, the early church grew rapidly as God met practical communal needs through the obedience that accompanied their confession of Christ. Such benevolence acknowledged that God was the source of all blessings.
With God’s help, we, the Founders, believe that this is what the world most needs. Irrespective of our individual worldviews, religions, persuasions, political views, ethnic origins, gender, or social standing, it is our collective duty and responsibility as contributing members of a global human society to care for communities – our neighbors. We need to create sustainable jobs, empower local communities, meet needs in practical and loving ways, reduce local poverty, set captives free, feed the hungry, and defend the cause of the widows, the orphans, the fatherless, the poor, the needy, and the most vulnerable members of society. When we learn to love our neighbors as ourselves, we will experience God’s blessings in ways we never thought possible.
Experiencing the Social Shalom of God.
Even though a return to a gold-backed monetary system is a good first step, it is NOT the ultimate solution. Returning to God’s principles of true wealth creation combined with the generous and selfless distribution and redistribution of the resources God provides is what the world needs most. Having unhindered access to the Giver of all good gifts that come down from Heaven is of far greater worth and importance than the gifts themselves.
When out of concern for the general well-being of others, we each pursue unequivocally the vertical relationship offered by a Loving, Gracious, Compassionate, Holy, Righteous, and Just God, to flow horizontally to the many, great blessings will come upon those who obey and upon the world they touch.
When open hands deliver God’s blessings into equally open hands, God’s abundance will flow to entire communities through the multiplication process, and the well-being will continue to self-multiply.
One act of obedience at the source can easily become an explosion of communal generosity that swells up into a flowing river that brings abundant and renewed life downstream. This is our hope and our prayer. There is no limit as to what God will do to support efforts that glorify Him. He will open the Storehouses of Heaven in ways rarely experienced before. He will rain down blessings upon those who will receive them, not for selfish purposes or greed, but to accomplish God’s most urgent work on earth, to draw all peoples to the soon-returning Messiah, the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, Jesus Christ.
It is our prayer that every Nation and people that align themselves with the initiative described in these Articles of Agreement and adopt and become a Country Member, or an Associate Member, on such terms as are defined herein, will experience what Isaiah prophesied … “You, heavens above, rain down my righteousness; let the clouds shower it down. Let the earth open wide, let salvation spring up, let righteousness flourish with it; I, the LORD, have created it.” It is what we call the social shalom of God.
