Christian Nation and Capitalism - Part 1
We have just finished a chapter 5 on the Holy Nation vs Christian Nation and we went back to chapter 1 of Holy Nation vs Holy Me.
We did that by bringing it closer to the biblical story and we said Holy Nation vs Holy Moses.
Our main newsflash was that the Gospel was never about Holy Moses it has always been about Holy Nation.
Moses himself reminds the Israelites this main mission with the following words:
And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.
Exodus 19:6 KJV
Again Peter shows that it was never about the Holy Peter but it was always about the Holy Nation. He also sums this below:
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
1 Peter 2:9 KJV
The question is How did our gospel slip from Holy Nation to Holy Moses?
How did we reverse again from Holy Nation to Holy Peter?
Why is Holy Moses and Holy Peter today more popular than Holy Nation?
Here is the answer: In order to grow a Nation you need a system of distribution of the economy.
The Holy Nation has a certain class of people.
It is a Nation of Kingly Priests.
It does not say Kings and Priests. It says Kingly Priests.
These Priests who are also Kings are of the same class.
But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,
Hebrews 12:22-23 KJV
You have come to the general assembly and the Church of the First Born.
This Nation which is also Church is made up only of the First Born. It is a Holy Nation of the First Born.
All citizens of this Nation hold the same status as The Son who is the First Born.
By dying for us to share this inheritance we all had to share it as First Born.
There are no Second Born and Last Born in this Nation. It is the Nation of the First Born.
First Born Kingly Priests.
When you have citizens of a Nation which are all First Born Kingly Priests; how do you share their economy among them?
Therefore this Nation cannot use our earthly systems of distributing the economy.
The earthly systems use the Capitalist; Socialist and Communist way to distribute the economy.
This means they conclude that there are classes from slaves to servants to Sons or masters.
The Holy Me and the Holy Moses group have this picture when they “rule” in their gathering.
I said earlier in order to grow as Holy Nation we need a System of Economic Distribution and it cannot be Capitalism or Socialism.
When you use the Capitalist system you will face capitalist problems.
In capitalism we have vocabulary that comes with the package.
First we have Competition.
Today churches have Competition among themselves because they have chosen Capitalism.
This means which congregation has more numbers more money more everything.
In Capitalism we have poaching of customers and employees so as to learn the secrets of the competition.
Congregations today are more about poaching members than winning unsaved souls.
In Capitalism you can also play dirty and dig the dirt of your competition.
Today we have congregations where this Pastor will dig the dirt of the other Pastor so as to win his or her members.
In the Holy Nation we restore the brother we don’t dig the dirt of a brother.
These are only few examples to show that the Holy Nation cannot use Communism or Capitalism to distribute our economy.
Let us look in the next instalment which system we use as Holy Nation.
Peace be unto you
