“Private Interpretation”

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli    in Theology

“To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because there is no light in them” (Isaiah8:20).

Does Isaiah 8:20 also mean scripture interprets itself? Does:

“And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts; knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.” (2Peter1:19-21)

mean there can be no authoritative interpreter at all but that scripture must interpret itself?

“No prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation” simply means Truth is established by at least two or three witnesses (Matt18:20). It does not mean scripture is the final authority even to interpret itself!

Active Word == Final Authority. But see where Peter is getting at with the term “private interpretation.” Active Word may also come across as “private interpretation.” That is why Jesus said, where two or three are gathered together there I–the Truth–am. Matt18:20 is of paramount importance to understand what Peter is saying.

If we study the principles of so-called hermeneutics, they will use that phrase “private interpretation” (Peter) to substantiate their claim that scripture must interpret itself. They harp on “sola scriptura” (Scripture Alone) as if the Pope is doing some “private interpretation” of his own. Do you get where i am going with this? The Pope always uses councils, never “private interpretations.” Council == the 2 or 3 of Matt18:15-20.

That the Pope be in authority is of Christocracy. That no one in particular be in authority even to arbitrate between people, is not some supposed virtuous democracy; it is anarchy. Here is proof that TRUTH can in fact be twisted to mean totally the opposite!

The raison d’être of a Pope is ironically for the very thing that he is dismissed by the Protestants, namely, “Private Interpretation.”

Operation Agape TiE® (videos)

Abstract

This revelation comes to you in the same spirit of the “still small voice.” I am here claiming to be the Son of David, the Capstone with God’s favor. Yes, the expected one. And in order to be of service, we are contending for the World Governor position, not as one who knows some management tactics, but as one in the image of Creator God, who offers excellent good & service. In particular, accompanied by a morphological or gross salvation (Patent Pending), as part of my following the Lord Jesus Christ, building on the foundational Cornerstone Salvation He gave to our core beings. While being a safe ecosystem against machine tyranny, it turns out that it is a non-zero-sum, sustainable, global solution for the gross pathological condition of the world and the planet, satisfying the need to integrate religions, addressing the root problem of terrorism, while catering to the need to educate, challenge, and render supremacy to whom it is due. Thus enabling us to have real “teeth” in justice. We pray that the Father would establish the work of our hands, even as He lays bare His grafted arm (rhema from Isa52:10) to take responsibility. The Christocratic New World Order is based on the premise: “When a man’s ways (or designs) please יהוה/God/الله/ईश्वर, he even causes his enemies to be at peace with him” (Proverbs 16:7).

Walk the Talk!

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli    in Christian Life, Family, Global Polity, Politics, Social, Theology

Don’t agree!

We not only have the Great Commission to be the Light (Talk) of the world, but we also have the Kingdom-Now mandate to be the Salt (Walk) of the earth.

So let your Light (Talk/Gospel) so shine before men that they see your Good-deeds (Walk) and glorify your Father who is in heaven.

In other words, we must WALK THE TALK!

Agape TiE is all about that. To give love where love is due and respect where respect is due and thus lift up a testimony which the whole world will behold, believe and be saved (John 17:23; John 3:14-15).

A Dichotomy for ChurchState?

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli    in Christian Life, International Justice, Politics, Social, Theology

Pope Benedict XVI’s encyclical Deus Caritas Est (“God is Love”) of 2006 teaches that justice is the defining concern of the state and the central concern of politics, and not of the church, which has charity as its central social concern. The laity has the specific responsibility of pursuing social justice in civil society. The church’s active role in social justice should be to inform the debate, using reason and natural law, and also by providing moral and spiritual formation for those involved in politics. (Source: Social Justice, Wikipedia)

Rick Warren of Saddleback Church in California quotes Martin Luther King Jr. as saying: “The church must be reminded that it is not the master or the servant of the state, but rather the conscience of the state.”

I respectfully disagree with them. First off, because Justice (which is attributed to the state) and Charity (which is attributed to the Church) are poles apart. Therefore, in order that there be no compromise on either (justice or love), both should operate in a single system—the ChurchState. In other words, in a single Court officiated by a single Judge, where there will always be a strong tension between both the Defender (charitable) and the Prosecutor (condemning). A church that settles for polemics remains a babe.

This very Court, in the absence of a neutral Judge (being that he is nominated and impeached at will by the state today), is in the hands of Media private enterprise, which can sway any side with money power. We should not give ourselves into such a resignation.

Improving on the present

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli    in Global Polity, International Justice, Politics, Social, Uncategorized

The following two presentations by a university professor help us understand the reasons for the status quo prevailing in the world-at-large.

The question to ask ourselves is: Are there demerits in the status quo that we can do away with while designing Christocracy?

In the globalized society of Christocracy a homestead program similar to the one that was in the United States may be implemented as a recompense or refuge to flee to for those in the laboring nations of the global economy. Workers can begin to work in leisure as it was in the Garden of Eden and actually enjoy the products, services, farms and the households they build.

With e-governance, Christocracy can obviate the need for a bloated public sector or a huge government bureaucracy, while all the time obtaining global synergistic economy and all the other benefits that come with it.

As to the question: Who governs in Christocracy?
Answer: The organized Bride–Remnant Overcomers (the Chosen) who have a vital relationship with the indwelling Christ.

An insight into the kingdom

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli    in Christian Life, Global Polity, Theology

Bill Bradford of Good News magazine wrote in the article “The Real Gospel …”

Entering the Kingdom

When Jesus came preaching the Kingdom of God, He said it was “at hand” and commanded people to repent and believe the good news about it (Mark 1:14, 15).

His kingdom is something we must enter (Mark 10:23, 25). Jesus warned of obstacles that can prevent our entrance into the Kingdom (Matthew 5:20; 19:23-25; Mark 9:47; Luke 18:17; John 3:5).

Jesus was at that time inviting people to repent so they could enter the Kingdom of God (Mark 1:15). His parables described what the Kingdom is, when it would come and how a person could enter it, and He clarified the requirements for and obstacles to entering it.

When does a person enter the Kingdom of God? Upon conversion, Christians become children of God and heirs of the kingdom (Romans 8:16, 17). But they will not inherit the kingdom until the kingdom comes. Paul explains: “Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed-in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed” (1 Corinthians 15:50-52).

Many people stop reading after the first four verses of this chapter, thinking they describe the entirety of the gospel Paul preached. But, by continuing to read the chapter, we see clearly that there is much more to the story. Paul goes on to explain more about the resurrection from the dead and entrance into the Kingdom of God. We “inherit,” or enter, that kingdom “at the last trumpet” (verse 52), the great blast that signals Christ’s return to rule the earth forever (Revelation 11:15).

Salvation through Jesus’ life, death and resurrection is indeed a part of the gospel message, but it is not exclusively (as many assume) the gospel message. Jesus Christ died, was buried and was resurrected (1 Corinthians 15:1-4) for a reason: so we could have everlasting life in the Kingdom of God (John 3:3, 5, 16).

We can accept Jesus’ command to repent and believe this gospel message. We can turn to God for forgiveness and reconciliation through Jesus Christ and begin to live by the laws of the Kingdom of God as taught by Jesus Christ. Those who refuse to live by God’s holy laws will be refused entrance into the Kingdom of God and eternal life (1 Corinthians 6:9, 10; Galatians 5:19-21; Ephesians 5:5).

Entering the Kingdom of God is synonymous with salvation. Thus, without understanding what the Kingdom of God is, we don’t understand what salvation is.

That is an awesome insight into the truth. But there is more to it, i believe.

The “last trumpet” that is spoken of i believe, pertains to the voice of any evangelist who finally consummates the new birth of a particular believer, which results in the person following up with a testimony in the waters of Baptism. In other words the last trumpet is perhaps not common to all. As i have written in the Be Born Again! article, baptism is the first resurrection from the dead.

He then actually enters into the kingdom of heaven. Note that i no longer have a mortal body but rather an immortal body. It is a body that is destined for glory as long as i abide in Christ. And since Christ abides in me, it is no longer i who do the living but Christ who lives in me. As Christ works from within me with His love to take full control of me and my environment, the preconditioning in my body to sin begins to recede.

The “tent” that we live in is often mistaken for the”flesh and blood” that Paul talks about, the later of which he says will not inherit the kingdom of God. The flesh and blood refer to anything that is the product of one’s own self-righteousness be it status, knowledge, appearance, goods, services, etc, etc.

Now there is a microcosmic last trumpet and also a macrocosmic last trumpet, the later pertaining to the whole world or the remnant from the whole world. In other words all the nations who will listen to the last macrocosmic trumpet and who will frame laws around the will of God.

In the above quote note the underlined phrase: Those who refuse to live by God’s holy laws will be refused entrance into the Kingdom of God and eternal life (1 Corinthians 6:9, 10; Galatians 5:19-21; Ephesians 5:5).

The clear implication in light of what i have said about the trumpets is that the Kingdom of God is NOW!

“Those” meaning… individuals, families, organizations, business as well as nations who “do not live today by God’s holy laws will be refused entrance into the kingdom of God and eternal life!”

Ushering-in Christocracy & Global Paternalism

Article adapted from a letter written to Queen Elizabeth of England in the year 2004 of the Lord. Interestingly, The Economist magazine did a cover story on April 8, 2006 on the subject of Soft Paternalism.

Last Modified date: Saturday, 03 September 2008 (Check back for updates)

Dear one in Christ,

Greetings in the precious name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, Savior and Example!

I was reading the following reviews:

  • The Laissez-faire policy from Encyclopedia Britannica
  • Paternalism from Encyclopedia Britannica
  • Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism from SparkNotes.com
  • The Wealth of Nations from Encyclopedia Britannica

And was led to the following conclusion. (Inline text from the Encyclopedia and the Notes.)

‘Adam Smith saw humans as creatures driven by passions and at the same time self-regulated by their ability to reason and–no less important–by their capacity for sympathy. This duality serves both to pit individuals against one another and to provide them with the rational and moral faculties to create institutions by which the internecine struggle can be mitigated and even turned to the common good.’

‘The source of the ability to form moral judgments, including judgments on one’s own behavior, in the face of the seemingly overriding passions for self-preservation and self-interest is the presence within each of us of an “inner man” who plays the role of the “impartial spectator,” approving or condemning our own and others’ actions with a voice impossible to disregard. Self-seeking men, he concluded and wrote, are often “led by an invisible hand . . . without knowing it, without intending it, [to] advance the interest of the society.”‘

The first book by Adam Smith (The theory of Moral Sentiments) ‘can also be seen as an explanation of the manner in which individuals are socialized (won) to become the market-oriented and class-bound actors that set the economic system into motion.’

The ideology of classical capitalism expressed in his second book, Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations (1776), recommended leaving economic decisions to the free play of self-regulating market forces, which was latter to be called the Laissez-faire policy.

‘By explaining that wages and rents and profits (the constituent parts of the costs of production) are themselves subject to this same discipline of self-interest and competition, Smith not only provided an ultimate rationale for these “natural” prices but also revealed an underlying [supposed] orderliness in the distribution of income itself among workers, whose recompense was their wages; landlords, whose income was their rents; and manufacturers, whose reward was their profits.’
(We will see later on whether this distribution is really in order or not.)

‘Max Weber argues that the modern spirit of capitalism sees profit as an end in itself, and pursuing profit as virtuous. Weber’s goal was to understand the source of this spirit. He turns to Protestantism for a potential explanation. Protestantism, [he says], offers a concept of the worldly “calling,” and gives worldly activity a religious character. While important, this alone cannot explain the need to pursue profit. One branch of Protestantism, Calvinism, does provide this explanation. Calvinists believe in predestination–that God has already determined who is saved and damned. As Calvinism developed, a deep psychological need for clues about whether one was actually saved arose, and Calvinists looked to their success in worldly activity for those clues. Thus, they came to value profit and material success as signs of God’s favor.’ It did not occur to them that notwithstanding predestination, which is itself a false doctrine, this kind of attitude is intrinsically conceited!

Christ’s teachings were on the contrary just the opposite. Matthew 16:24–Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.” Matthew 16:25–“For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it.” Matthew 6:19,20–“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.” Matthew 19:21–Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

What we witness today in the capitalistic world is self-interest, self-preservation and frugality in giving. People have willy-nilly justified today’s system of business, law & order and government to suite their own selfish ends. They have accumulated false teachers to suite what their itching ears want to hear. Selfishness has become virtuous.

‘Once capitalism emerged, the Protestant values were no longer necessary, and their ethic took on a life of its own. We are now locked into the spirit of capitalism’ because it has become useful to meet our selfish ends.

The biblical concept of the “inner-man” that Smith applies to society by incorporating legal institutions is good in essence. But in the context of global economics, there is little application. The governments play into their own country’s capitalists. The International Court of Justice has to take to task governments like the United States and the United Kingdom, which follow unethical immigration policies. They essentially rob the wealth of poor nations.

Spencer Johnson in his book “One Minute Manager” speaks about the 20/80 principle. In applying the principle to the economics of human resources of a nation, 20 percent of the population do 80 percent of the work. Now we all know that America is the “melting pot” of the world. So if the body of a nation is brain-drained or virtually beheaded, then 80 percent of the work of that nation is left undone. Whereas the melting pot has 80 percent more of its work complete, yet having to deal with only 20 percent. So the macroeconomics, if i am not mistaken, is the multiplication of two integrals. This is what i believe, among other things, has contributed to the boom in the United States over the years. Because people there were superior, life became more and more superior and therefore attractive to the immigrant. But America is a democracy and it is true even in a democracy there is a downside. As Lenin puts it, “A democracy is a state which recognizes the subjecting of the minority to the majority.” So the immigrant comes under the subjection of the majority white, macroscopically as well as microscopically. Macroscopically, because his class of immigrants are not white. Microscopically, because he is portrayed as an alien to the majority. All that they (majority) have to do now is manage the brain by feeding it with what it needs–a salary.

‘Smith’s system of “natural liberty,” he is careful to point out, accords with the best interests of all but will not be put into practice if government is entrusted to, or heeds, “the mean rapacity (greed), the monopolizing spirit of merchants and manufacturers, who neither are, nor ought to be, the rulers of mankind.”‘ Smith’s fears have indeed materialized. Today the governments of the USA and UK are entrusted to, or heed the interests of the capitalists when it comes to foreign policy. The capitalists twist the arm of the government to import labor at actually the expense of the foreign nations or they threaten to outsource. ‘”Civil government,” Smith wrote, “so far as it is instituted for the security of property, is in reality instituted for the defense of the rich against the poor, or of those who have some property against those who have none at all.”‘ What the government is trying to secure here is the human capital for the capitalists and at the same time to keep the ratio between the whites and the minorities high within U.S.A.

Only last week we heard the Census Bureau predict an America of greater racial diversity by 2050. How did they jump into that conclusion without conceiving a strategy of immigration policy that will stem outsourcing. The idea is to keep the minority population as diverse as possible to pit one minor against the other and thus get the upper hand being a white. So import the cream, that is, brain drain China and India because it can’t afford to take too many from there due to the size of those nations. And then import Hispanics and Africans for low income jobs in equal number to pit them against the Chinese and the Indians when it comes to voting because America being a democracy, everyone has equal weight.

Through 2003-2004 we have been watching in Lou Dobb’s Report on CNN, the Exporting of America as he calls it. Corporate America is outsourcing service jobs at an alarming rate to cheap foreign labor markets like India. It is also outsourcing manufacturing jobs to China at an alarming rate. Together of which has increased the Trade Deficit of the United States by trillions of dollars.

In this global scenario there is no question that large concentrations of workers–men, women, and children–are crowded together in oppressive physical conditions and working long hours for low pay just so that an American capitalist can take a fling at his fantasy or vanity. One in ten people in America itself are now suffering from clinical depression. ‘Smith wrote with discernment about the intellectual degradation of the worker in a society in which the division of labor has proceeded very far; for by comparison with the alert intelligence of the husbandman (farmer), the specialized worker “generally becomes as stupid and ignorant as it is possible for a human being to become.”‘ The idea is to make them so specialized and stupid that they do not realize how valuable they are in the overall scheme of things. ‘In the past two centuries managers of industry have taken, in general, two broadly different positions regarding management’s social responsibilities.’ But these have been limited to the society that they operate in, which is the American neighborhood without taking into consideration the contribution of foreign neighborhoods, which send high caliber immigrants to American neighborhoods each year.

Laissez-faire with Protestant Ethic:

‘In this view the owner or manager has no responsibility for the welfare of the workers outside the immediate plant situation. As i have said earlier, a person’s station in life is a reflection of his intrinsic merit [or rather predestination] in the eyes of God; the wages and other labor costs incurred by the firm are the result of competitive market conditions. In this view, then, the owner’s or manager’s responsibility to his employees begins and ends with operating the firm in such an efficient manner that it is able to meet competition in the marketplace, and, if all business managers similarly followed a policy of intelligent self-interest, the broad social interests of society would be better served than by any other policy. The executive most inclined toward a laissez-faire viewpoint is likely to concede that there are some social problems that are not resolved by private initiative in pursuit of enlightened self-interest. However, there are [owners]/ managers with this view of the world who tend to take a defensive position regarding the responsibilities of their firm beyond the gates of the plant. They [nevertheless] recognize that popular opinion and government policies and programs may require them to take on activities not dictated by immediate material interest, but the tendency is to do what has to be done to keep out of trouble with the outside world and nothing more.’ This policy is well suited for the self-interest of a state, which has immigrants at its shores all the time.

Paternalism:

‘The other stance begins with the assumption that management has a social responsibility to the communities in which its plants are located. If one states the situation in this general way, hardly a management spokesperson today would deny this social responsibility.’ The Ford Motor Company is a case in point, which announced last week that all dividends from stock owned by the Chief stock holder will be distributed among the employees. ‘Yet, when one gets beyond rhetoric, one finds a wide variety of views as to what actions–if any–management should take. In assessing the present scene, one might do well to examine the historical evolution of conceptions of management’s social responsibilities.’

‘The rise of unions in the mass production industries of the United States in the 1930s helped to persuade executives that a paternalistic approach to labor and community relations was no longer feasible. Extensions of management’s social responsibilities were now achieved through collective bargaining. Still, these broader benefits, such as pensions and health insurance, were limited to the workers and their immediate families. There was a tendency to assume that any responsibility for the welfare of the community as a whole should be assumed by government.’

Many corporations today have several billions of dollars in turnover. CEO’s get paid in millions each year to maintain the status quo. The orderliness of the distribution of income between the landlords, manufacturers and laborers cannot be right because tests can prove that there is only little disparity–if any–between the IQ of an owner/manager and an average worker. Even if exponential reward structure were made on the populace, it would still be inconsistent with the status quo.

No doubt the United States of America was originally white. Or was it? At least everyone assumes that and government policies are tailored with that assumption. But most of the big corporations are global players today. Therefore they have global societal responsibility. The global watchdog, the United Nations, which is really a puppet of the developed world, has taken a silent stance at such matters because it has no authority given it. It follows the same policy of “allow-to-do” (laissez-faire).

Thus developed nations, through their capitalist corporations, exploit–if not behead–developing nations because people and capital is induced to move to those areas.

This is nothing but global anarchy for the above reasons mentioned. The irreparable damage is to the tune of a multiplication of two integrals for each nation in question, which I am sure, will be in zillions of dollars.

Noah did not see the great flood that was to come. It was faith alone that enabled him to build the Ark. Today, we do not see Christ face to face. So it will be faith alone that will move us to prepare a Throne (that is, one body culminated at the neck) for Him (the Head), for the great judgment day and the millennial rule. (For details, see the vision that sprang from out of a revelation about a sharp two-edged Sword: Agape TiE ® / Totally Integrated Environment®.)

Let us pray!

No sooner did i think of writing here the model prayer that our Lord had taught us and went to look for the exact words in my Bible (NASB Life Application Study Bible) from the Gospel according to Matthew, thus said the LORD (my eyes fell on): Matthew 21:42-44; 12:18-21. This took place at around 7:20 PM on Tuesday, March 23, 2004 according to the Gregorian calendar, on the island of St. Christopher in the basement apartment that we are renting from Rona & Lee Graham which is on Pelican Drive in Bird Rock.

Carefully,
(Thus says the Lord: Matthew 23:16-22)
