The spirit of Witchcraft uses Debt to Oppress those who Cannot Repay

Debt is a game embraced by the rich of the world, that is, those who have at least some. Debt, indeed, is a plaything of the rich used to oppress the poor, those who cannot repay. GK Chesterton once said in his classic book Utopia of Usurers and other Essays that:

"Everyone knows that the people who can least pay their debts are the people who are always trying to. Among the poor a payment may be as rash as a speculation. Among the rich a bankruptcy may be as safe as a bank. Considering the class from which private soldiers are taken, there is an atrocious meanness in the idea of buying their blood abroad, while we sell their sticks at home".

That debt even exists is itself an indictment to the world, both the poor and the rich, those who have none and those who have some, both the borrower and the lender. It is an indictment to the world. People have to borrow money because people choose to treat what they possess as belonging to them, as individuals when all things belong to God and God alone. The Bible makes it clear that all things belong to God. He is the absolute, Sovereign owner of all things, which means that no human owns anything:

The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein (Psalm 24:1).

For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings (Hebrews 2:10).

For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist (Colossians 1:16-17).

You may say that to claim that no human owns anything is to abolish the 8th Commandment of the Bible "Thou shalt not steal" (Exodus 20:15). The real irony of this objection is that it begs the question as to on what basis can a human be said to own something in the moral sense, so that he can claim that another has stolen what he has. One may argue that he owns what he has because he has worked for it. However, the question as to where does the money come from, which he use to buy what he has is raised. One may say it is the employer. 

Where does the employer get his money from? You may say from the labours of others. This further leads to the question where does the labour come from. The person is where it comes from. However, the question no one asks is where does the human come from. He is created by God. If it were not for God creating him, he would not even be conceived.

From God, all things are made. That anything can even exist is by virtue of God creating it. All things not only literally come from God. The exist by virtue of God creating it and allowing it to exist. If God does not create it and allow it to exist, it will not exist. Those who object to the claim that no humans owns anything, in the true sense, but that God is the absolute Sovereign owner of all things, may I ask, do you not acknowledge that your breath is not yours, but God's? It is only by God's permissive will that you breath. 

Say a person takes away the breath of another by murdering him. Could it be said that the murderer stole from him? To claim to the breath is stolen from the person who died rather than God, is to claim that the breath belongs to the person rather than God. The murderer has stolen breath, and is guilty of theft in the eyes of God, not because he has stolen the breath of that human victim, but because he has stolen breath of a human from God. 

To steal in the eyes of God is to take that which God does not give to oneself. God is the ultimate provider of all things, who determines according to his permissive will. It is only because of God's permissive will that a person can even possess what he has. To take something away from what another possesses is to violate this permissive will of God and be guilt in the eyes of God of theft. Leviticus 6:1-5 explains what exactly the Bible means by theft:

And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, If a soul sin, and commit a trespass against the Lord, and lie unto his neighbour in that which was delivered him to keep, or in fellowship, or in a thing taken away by violence, or hath deceived his neighbour; Or have found that which was lost, and lieth concerning it, and sweareth falsely; in any of all these that a man doeth, sinning therein: Then it shall be, because he hath sinned, and is guilty, that he shall restore that which he took violently away, or the thing which he hath deceitfully gotten, or that which was delivered him to keep, or the lost thing which he found, Or all that about which he hath sworn falsely; he shall even restore it in the principal, and shall add the fifth part more thereto, and give it unto him to whom it appertaineth, in the day of his trespass offering.

The words 'delivered to him to keep' in Leviticus 6:2 and 6:4 is used. It means delivered to him to keep, which does not confer a right to own what he has, but rather only to be in possession of what he has.  

The belief that people who are owners of what they have is based on the false doctrine that humans have rights to what they want or what they need. Humans have no rights. End of story. Humans have no rights. The Bible never never ever ever says that humans have rights. That people believe they even have rights testifies to the vile, blasphemous pride and arrogance of humanity. It is absolutely vile, abominable, disgusting, and blasphemous for humans to claim that they have rights, whether it be because they are human, or because God gives them their "rights".

God does not give "rights". He gives grace. The unsaved are right in saying that "rights" are not from God, but rather from law, because the doctrine of "rights" is itself fleshly and of the world. So-called "rights" comes from the earthly, worldly, fleshly laws of a God-hating, Christ-hating and Church-hating world. It is extremely tragic that even spiritually blind God-hating people can see that "rights" come from the earthly laws of nations, and even that there is no such thing as a "right". Even the liberal God-hating, Enlightenment philosopher Jeremy Bentham recognised that there is no such thing as a "right" is the moral sense that people today mean when they claim their "rights. He said:

"Natural rights is simple nonsense: natural and imprescriptible rights, rhetorical nonsense — nonsense upon stilts... And of [legal] rights, whatever they are, there is not, it seems, any one of which any government can, upon any occasion whatever, abrogate the smallest particle." 

Rights are not only nonsense upon stilts from the Biblical perspective. Rights are vile, abominable, blasphemies against God claimed by God-hating world out of their desire to be independent of God, and to justify this evil, vile, depraved desire. God created humans to serve Him and Him alone, not ever for humans in any way whatsoever. All that He does and gives to humans is for His glory, not ours. Salvation of God's people is for God's glory and His glory alone, not ever ever for the glory of His people. Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for My glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him (Isaiah 43:7).

That humans believe in their rights, and that God does things for humans is an indictment to sinful, proud, arrogant humanity. To believe in one's so-called "rights" is to steal from God. The doctrine of private property as advocated by those mammonised professing Christians who object to the claim that  humans do not own anything, but that God does, on the grounds that it contradicts the 8th Commandment of God (Exodus 20:15), steals from the glory and Sovereignty of God. Those who advocate or believe in private property are violating the 8th Commandment of God, Thou shalt not steal, by claiming that what they have is theirs, and not God's. 

The whole game of debt is facilitated by the belief that what one has belongs to oneself, whether it be those who loan money who think that the money they have is "theirs" and those who borrow money who think that what they use money to borrow for is "theirs". Neither party is an innocent party. Both parties have blood on their hands. 

You may ask, how does both parties have blood on their hands, since it is not as though they murder people by borrowing and lending money. They have blood on their hands by facilitating the whole mammonised system and forcing others into it. The spirit of witchcraft is the spirit behind the control of people through debt. The unsaved may call it an element of control to the whole system of debt. This is correct. However, it fails to see the whole spirit behind it, the spirit of witchcraft. Such mammonised persons who are part of the debt game are facilitating the seduction of the spirit of witchcraft in how she operates through the whole mammonised system of the world.

The modern global financial and banking system is one that is designed to force those who cannot pay for their needs into debt, and those who cannot repay such debt into even more debt. It is a deliberate design of the spirit of mammon and his minion, the spirit of witchcraft. There are demons who are bent, absolutely bent, on seeking to drag as many people into Hell, by trapping them into the bondage to the things of the world, by appealing to the lusts of the flesh, lusts of the eye and pride of life (1 John 2:16). 

Satan controls the world (2 Corinthians 4:4). The things of the world are the lusts of the flesh, lusts of the eyes and pride of life (1 John 2:16). Satan and his evil minions sets up the systems of the world, through his evil, wicked servants, which are intended to seduce people through the lusts of the flesh, lusts of the eyes and pride of life. The spirit of mammon and the spirit of witchcraft are deliberately seeking to trap people into bondage to such lusts and pride, so as to lure them into serving them. 

The mammonised system itself is one that is driven by the lusts of the flesh, lusts of the eyes and pride of life. That is exactly what the purpose of the whole system is. The key means it seeks to seduce the masses, both the unsaved and saved, into seeking such things is by deceiving people into thinking is is legitimate to seek, not luxury things, but earthly temporal needs, which are so-called basic needs, based on a humanistic, fleshly calculus of needs and wants. That way, people, in their deception, think that because they are not seeking luxury things, but rather so-called 'basic' legitimate needs, they are borrowing money legitimately because it is for one's needs. Thus, when people borrow money, it is for their basic needs and thus legitimate. Such is a deception from the spirit of mammon.

The spirit of witchcraft deceives those who do not have enough resources to buy their basic needs, such as food, clothing and shelter. She deceives them into thinking that not only is it legitimate to borrow money for such things, on the basis that one cannot afford them without debt, but that one must get into debt for such basic needs. 

She makes people feel a false sense of guilt by using 1 Timothy 5:8 which says, "if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel", to make them feel morally obliged to borrow money to provide for such things. She also seeks to make those who are trying to find work, but cannot, into feeling guilt at not being able to do so. Indeed, that is precisely why some commit suicide, because of guilt at not being able to provide for one's family, without debt. Such is the manipulation, intimidation and domination of the spirit of witchcraft. 

The spirit of witchcraft works through guilt which comes from an inability to fulfill a moral obligation. The inability to fulfill a moral obligation is a true one, the classic example of which is the inability to repay one's debts. Once one has debts, one is morally obliged to repay (Psalm 37:21), regardless of whether one is rich or poor, has income or none,  or whether one has borrowed much money or little, or luxury goods or legitimate needs.  For the wicked borroweth, and payeth not again (Psalm 37:21).

The Bible never makes a proviso or gives a qualification to Psalm 37:21 by saying, for example, the wicked borrow and do not repay for luxury goods, or the wicked borrow and do not repay the huge amounts of money they borrow. Nor does Psalm 37:21 say that the wicked borrow and do not repay when they have high income, which implies that it is not wicked to borrow money and not repay when they have low income. Conversely, neither does it say that the wicked borrow and do not repay when they have low income, implies that it is not wicked to borrow and not repay when one has high income.  

To Hell with such vile, disgusting, abominable qualifications! To Hell with such vile, disgusting, abominable, self-justifying doctrines of demons!  Psalm 37:21 means that it is wicked to borrow and not repay, plain and simple. 

One might still argue that the Bible does not say it is wrong to borrow money. Neither does the Bible explicitly say it is wrong to gamble, but yet we all know it is sin because it is sin. Even if the Bible explicitly is not wrong to borrow money, it is not at wise for it is a lack of trust in God to provide, and a means to seeking one's needs in one's own human strength. Even if it is done to achieve that which is approved by God, it is to not achieve that aim in accordance to the will of God. For debt itself is the power of bondage to the spirit of mammon.  

The spirit of witchcraft seeks to take advantage of those who borrow out of their poverty, which is what borrowing often done for. She makes people think that it is not only legitimate to borrow money in seeking one's needs, but that it is  moral obligation to do so to provide for oneself and one's family. 

She is the spirit who causes conflicts within the family, over financial matters, regarding how an individual has failed to provide for his or her family, and that he has only provided for his family by borrowing debt. This stirs up hostility from others in the family who blame that individual for not being able to provide their needs, but has incurred only family debt, for failing to care for them, when that person has tried all his best to do so. 

One may indeed be unable to have resources to provide for the basic needs of one's family. What should one do then? One must trust in God, not debt, and to seek the righteousness of God, for He will provide (Matthew 6:33). One must trust in God, whether one is rich or poor, has income or no income, or whether employed or unemployed.

People fall into debt as a result of failing to fully trust in God. This comes from one's pride, manifesting in the desire to seek one's needs, acting independently of God, rather than realising and acknowledging one's utter dependence on Him. If He can create your body, which is so complex, create the world ex nihilo, and even far more amazingly, turn a evil, vile wretched, filthy abominable filthy rag of a sinner into a perfect spotless saint, He can provide all of yours needs. 

As Jesus said in Matthew 6:26-34:

Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? 

 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Trust in God who is Sovereign, Absolute, Almighty and Eternal. Do not trust in money, debt or banks which rots on earth and can only fill the stomach for a while. Just as Jesus' food was to do the will of God, make your food to do the will of God, not to obtain physical food that rots, and once fills the stomach, will make one hungry.

Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat? Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work. Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest. And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together (John 4:33-36).
