A Blueprint for the Enslavement of America

I’ve been reading about Joseph in the Book of Genesis, and I had something of an epiphany. I realized that what is happening now to America follows a pattern that is almost 3,700 years old. But first, I need to set the stage for you.

It was about 1886 BC, and Shem – Noah’s son – had died just 72 years before. The memories of the Great Flood and the antediluvian age were fading. Civilizations were starting to really expand their borders. Political systems were in their infancy. Yoseph ben Ya’acov had just been elevated to Grand Vizier of Egypt, and he laid down one of the earliest systems of taxation in the history of mankind.

When it was all over, a free people had been enslaved.

NOTE: I am side-stepping the ‘Great Bible Timeline Debate’, so that I can get on with the main point. Those of you who wish to look into the discrepancies between the timelines, and why… well, you can find a few examples here:

Now, where was I… oh yes. Yoseph ben Ya’acov.

He is better known as Joseph, the 11th son of Jacob. He was sold by his brothers into slavery, thrown into prison and then elevated to the second highest position in Egypt, after correctly interpreting a prophetic dream by Pharaoh. But, it was what Joseph did afterwards that interests us most.

Using the authority of the Pharaoh, Joseph levied a 20% tax on all harvests and put all of that grain in storehouses. When the seven years of ‘plentiful harvests’ were over, the famine began. In the first year, they gave up all their money and their cattle and herds. In the second year, they gave up their freedom.

Here is the section that we are talking about:

When that year was ended, they came unto him the second year, and said unto him, We will not hide it from my lord, how that our money is spent; my lord also hath our herds of cattle; there is not ought left in the sight of my lord, but our bodies, and our lands:

Wherefore shall we die before thine eyes, both we and our land? buy us and our land for bread, and we and our land will be servants unto Pharaoh: and give us seed, that we may live, and not die, that the land be not desolate.

And Joseph bought all the land of Egypt for Pharaoh; for the Egyptians sold every man his field, because the famine prevailed over them: so the land became Pharaoh’s.

And as for the people, he removed them to cities from one end of the borders of Egypt even to the other end thereof.

 – Genesis 47:18-21

What does Joseph do?

He moves people into cities, and sets the tax rate at 20% (verse 26), for everyone.

Before the years of famine came along, the Egyptians were a free people and owned their own land. After the famine, they were slaves.

In the story of Joseph, the years of plenty and famine were an act of God. And, we can speculate about why God did this, but it was nevertheless a natural phenomenon.

Today, our story is much the same. After years of amazing prosperity, we have entered a time of economic and financial famine. We have sold nearly everything that we own – including our children. All that is left is ourselves. Very soon, we will be selling that, also.

Did you know that just 10% of American households own almost 75% of all the wealth in the United States?

Did you know that 25% (or more) of all households have zero or negative net worth?

When the estate tax (or inheritance tax) was enacted in 1916, farmers had to sell land to pay the taxes when their parents died. Eventually, families were forced off the land and into cities.

Just like Joseph did to the Egyptians, the US government moved people off of their land and into the cities. It just took them a bit longer (100 years) to accomplish what Joseph did in 48 months. This is the verse where it happened:

And as for the people, he removed them to cities from one end of the borders of Egypt even to the other end thereof.
(verse 21)

Now, I am not saying that Joseph was a bad guy, or that he deliberately went about to enslave the people of Egypt. Joseph was definitely a man of God, and the people of Egypt got a pretty good deal with Joseph running things. In fact, he saved their lives.

Those that are enslaving us today aren’t trying to save our lives. In fact, they want to destroy us, and they are following a plan that looks a lot like the one in the Bible, except this one is evil-incarnate.

They have taken our land and our possessions. They convinced us to sell our children. And now, they are coming for us.

Are you ready for this?
