Weights and Measures By Melissa C Pointer

Everything changes—our bodies start tiny and floating in fluid. They will then grow until we can stand, walk, run and we will finally begin to age. We learn new concepts overtime and will even master a few of them. However many of these will slip away as time rushes by.

As a child you may desire to grow up to become a teacher, doctor, firefighter or even a super hero. However as an adult you may not become any of those.

Everything changes but God. God is constant, he is a rock, he is fair, he is our protection and our foundation. This is security and comfort for his children and should terrify those who disobey him.

God the Father measures everything and his measurement is perfect

Why? He judges everyone according to the same law. There are no loopholes, exemptions, workarounds or overrides in the laws of God. It does not mean that he is not merciful or long suffering. God has let his sun to rise and set on both the wicked and righteous for thousands of years. Matthews 5:45. At the same time God is taking account of all things, all people, in all places at all times because he is omnipotent and omnipresent. Revelations 19:6. Everyone is being measured by God and his measurement is perfect. We have read about the outcomes of God ’s perfect measurement in the past concerning Sodom, the Amorites, and Babylon. We have seen in it ourselves and manifested in our daily struggles in the fruition of Deuteronomy 28. Reference scriptures: Amorites Genesis 15: 15-16, Measurement of Sodom’s wickedness and how many righteous people are needed for a city to survive Genesis 18: 17-33. The judgment of Babylon Daniel 5: 22-28. Deuteronomy 28. These scriptures are important because they inform us that God quantifies or places a value or weight on all people and nations.

Mike Pence says he is a Christian first

God sees when people profess to be Christians and do something that is not Christ like. These actions are recorded and weighed. For example when Vice President Pence said he was a Christian first, it seemed strange that he accepted proposals that did not align with Christian values. One of those proposals was from the House of Representatives that would have eliminated health care for 24 million people. The second is a budget that would remove federal funding for Meals on wheels and the school lunch program. His misalignment with true Christian values does not end with lack of mercy for the sick, young and the elderly. He also does not believe in dispensation of justice. A man wrongly convicted for attempted murder and robbery was sentenced to 40 years in jail.

He was released from prison after spending nearly 10 years there. This man wanted a pardon to remove the felony charge from his record so he could function fully in society. However the Christian first Pence refused because he said the request was extraordinary. Never mind the fact that it would be difficult for him to earn a daily wage with a felony charge so how could he support himself or his family. It should be stated that the current governor issued him a pardon a month after taking office.

God has also heard people boo when people pray at town hall meetings. He has seen how his name has been attacked on multiple sides by the sons of men. All of this is being documented and measured by the laws of God.

Yet the sun still rises and sets. Seed is planted and rain falls from the sky to water it. Everyone wants, needs and many expect to obtain the good from God. Never the less times are changing—because they do. Also they scriptures must come to pass. How they come to fruition is often surprising and amazing. As children of God we have been given a commandment to read God’s word. If we adhere to the law we gain an advantage in insight, comfort and protection. Yes our faith will be tested but it will also be rewarded. The different phases of judgment have unique factors that must come to pass and we may or may not be aware of them. Recall the children of Israel during the time of the Exodus. Moses did not know the exact day or hour when they would be delivered. Never the less, he did know about certain conditions: Egypt would be smitten with signs and wonders, the Egyptians would give Israel jewels and raiment and Pharaoh would not listen to Moses but God would prove to Egypt that the Almighty is the most High. Exodus 3: 19-22. Exodus 7: 1-5. Moses did not know that God would send 10 plagues to Egypt nor did he know magicians could produce the first two. It was only after the last plague that the Egyptians gladly gave them silver, gold and clothing; the prophesy had to be fulfilled. Even still there was a surprise waiting for Israel; they would cross the Red Sea and that same sea would drown the mighty Egyptian army. There are many prophesies in the bible but we do not know the exact day or hour of when they will be fulfilled. Nor do we know about the surprising details that will occur with them.

Recall a prophesy that nearly everyone in this world is familiar with; it can be found in Revelations 13: 3-18. In the end of times there will be a one world government. A government that will place its mark on all of its citizens. It will be able to control commerce and force nearly everyone to yield to it. I remember learning about this prophesy in the 1980’s and it seemed nearly impossible. .

Yet I did not know about the knowledge requirement man would need to fulfill that was written in the scriptures. The 80’s were a decade when I received my first walkman cassette player and I was very excited. It was the era of pagers, VCRs, and cable TV were a new developments. I remember using a rotary phone then and Madea calling to rent a phone from AT&T

Life has changed immensely in the last 30 years

However that is not today’s world. The computer went from being in businesses and academic settings to being on nearly every desktop in every home in 2001. The smartphone did not exist until after I graduated in 2007. Within a 10 year period of time there were computers not only in the workplace and homes but on people. A smartphone, tablet, iPad, smart watch, droid, iPod, even fancy pedometers are computers. There are computers in TVs, refrigerators, house alarms, thermostats and some that even control light fixtures.

There are computers and apps in new cars that can can manipulated remotely by deviants or the government. In fact hackers did exactly that to storm sirens in Texas for an extended period time. Our march to a more beast like environment has not ended there because we also communicate across the globe via technology. Every horrible bodacious outlandish thing our president does or says—is displayed via news alerts on smart phones. He sends a text or a tweet and billions of people shudder.

The 45th president is not the only individual to be able send shockwaves using social media. A gunman in Cleveland recorded his murder of older man and posted it on Facebook. It was on the social media platform for 3 hours. He then used Facebook live to talk about the murder later in the day. This is not the first time violence has been recorded for the world to see. The world has shared in the horror of the chemical weapon attacks in Syria. Police brutality is perpetually being recorded and distributed among the masses. Here we can see the convergence of the time of Noah and knowledge increasing. The result has led to nearly being inundated with graphic sights and sounds of evil every where.

The technological pieces necessary for a worldwide government seem to be coming together

It seems like we have been on an accelerated trajectory toward making sure that the technological requirements are in place for the last government. Yet there are many other scriptures that have to be fulfilled before that one in Revelations 13. Some of these prophesies we are very familiar with: the world will become more like the time of Noah and Lot, a woman shall compass a man, the sealing of the 144,000, and the fall of Babylon are just a few. These are prophesies that are not talked about in the mainstream churches however there are scriptures to back up their existence. Luke 17: 26-30. Jeremiah 31: 22 Revelations 7:1-4. Revelations 14: 1-9.

The times have changed. Sodomy has become more common place and violence has made some places nearly unlivable. Meanwhile women are overtaking men in college degrees and soon graduate degrees.

Now brethren we have seen the verses in Luke grow, blossom and begin to bear fruit. We only have to look at our schools, many work places and church to know that Jeremiah 31:22 has come to pass. However the fall of Babylon and the sealing of the 144,000 are being looked for with earnest anticipation. Even still there are other portions of the bible that speak about what must happen to Babylon, Zion and the condition of the world. 2 Esdras 15:14-21. God has measured this punishment as well. With all of these scriptures that we have read and studied we have been surprised repeatedly. An African American for a President a complete surprise. People then thought surely a woman especially one with the experience of Hillary Clinton would be elected after Barak Obama. She wasn't another surprise. The man that has been elected is so outlandish that he seems like he was created from a dark sketch comedy routine. When Donald Trump announced his run for president he hired actors to fill the halls to make it look like he had significant support. He has broken nearly every political guideline, rules for polite conversation with boorish behavior and his supporters have loved him for it. He was definitely a surprise and only by the will of God is he in office.

The short definition for Donald Trump is unprecedented. Which simply means something that has never been experienced before

Everything his administration has done seems corrupt, unbelievable, or downright buffoonish.

A man that does not have the experience, education, intelligence or temperament to run for governmental office has been propelled to the highest office in the world.

There is a spirit that is driving these people to have a strong delusion to believe a lie. It shocked all of the experts and pundits that this election was even possible.

However in a broader scheme he is perfect for the position that he has. When you look at the elements that propelled him to office; you can see how a measurement may be fulfilled. The rejection of the Babylonian system and broad spread dissension among the people.

Racism

It is the belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human racial groups determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to dominate others or that a particular racial group is inferior to the others. Often a person who believes they are superior to other races will express their superiority in the form of intolerance or hatred towards other ethnic groups. In government or institutions policies of discriminations are put in place to separate groups and and to assist one over another. Yes there is a racism measurement for this nation. Some may falsely believe that it no longer exists or that it has been diminished. Regardless we know the truth--racism was a crucial component of this nation when it was founded. It never went away. Yes the guise of uprightness and wholesomeness was placed on top to take away the ugliness of this nation's pillars: greed, covetousness, racism, and the love of force. Notwithstanding racism always peaked through at the crucial moments: the writing of the constitution, the Civil War, the Great Depression, World War 2, the Civil Rights movement and the war on drugs.

Here we see it again showing itself as the true blight it is in the form of distribution of welfare moneys distributed in the nation. We have all heard about the wonders of block grants from the Republican Party. They are suppose to give states more latitude in administering funds to their populations. There is a push for Medicaid to be given to states in the form of block grants. Currently states receive block grants for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families also known as TANF. First 23% of families living in poverty receive money from TANF. That is the national average. However it was discovered that states with higher amounts of African Americans in the population give significantly less money. For example in Louisiana only 4% of families living in poverty will receive money whereas in Vermont 78% will. In addition Vermont will allow a family of 3 to make $1053 a month to receive $640. However in Louisiana the maximum benefit is $240 and the family can make less than $360. This was not always the case. Before the federal government took control of welfare in the 1960's the states distributed the funds to whom they felt were most worthy. In the south during harvest season welfare offices were shuttered so black women would have to work in the fields. If a woman kept her house untidy she could be denied assistance or if a man lived with her that was not her husband she would be denied. In the 1960's the Federal government had control of the fund and more objective criteria was in place. However with time the demographics of the recipients changed: 28% white, 30% African American and 37% Latino. When president Clinton was in office he promised to reform welfare and he did. He gave power back to the states in the form of block grants. Because it was a republican majority in the house and senate; the democrats concerns about inflation were ignored. That meant that the amount of money to the states has not changed in the last 21 years. It means the people receiving benefits today are getting a third less than those 20 years ago. President Trump does not believe the current system is stringent enough.

When I think about this particular evil--I cannot help but think of three scriptures. Divers weights, and divers measures, both of them are alike abomination to the LORD. Proverbs 20:10

Come down, and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the ground: there is no throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called tender and delicate.Take the millstones, and grind meal: uncover thy locks, make bare the leg, uncover the thigh, pass over the rivers.Thy nakedness shall be uncovered, yea, thy shame shall be seen: I will take vengeance, and I will not meet thee as a man. Isaiah 47:1-3.

And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me, saith the LORD of hosts.For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. Malachi 3:5-6 These scriptures comfort me because I know God has seen this. He knew when they enacted the law their hearts' true intent. The Almighty is not swayed by their polish or flashy sayings. Instead he is just and weighs and everything and his measurement is perfect.
