What has been will be again
Let’s take a look at the largest land transactions in the history of the world. The first happened in 1800 BC in the land of Egypt. An even bigger land transfer took place in the United States in the 1930s through the 1940s.
Let’s first looking at Genesis 47:13 for our context:
“There was no food, however, in the whole region because the famine was severe; both Egypt and Canaan wasted away because of the famine. Joseph collected all the money that was to be found in Egypt and Canaan in payment for the grain they were buying, and he brought it to Pharaoh’s palace. When the money of the people of Egypt and Canaan was gone, all Egypt came to Joseph and said, “Give us food. Why should we die before your eyes? Our money is all gone.”
“Then bring your livestock,” said Joseph. “I will sell you food in exchange for your livestock, since your money is gone.” So they brought their livestock to Joseph, and he gave them food in exchange for their horses, their sheep and goats, their cattle and donkeys. And he brought them through that year with food in exchange for all their livestock.
When that year was over, they came to him the following year and said, “We cannot hide from our lord the fact that since our money is gone and our livestock belongs to you, there is nothing left for our lord except our bodies and our land. Why should we perish before your eyes—we and our land as well? Buy us and our land in exchange for food, and we with our land will be in bondage to Pharaoh. Give us seed so that we may live and not die, and that the land may not become desolate.”
So Joseph bought all the land in Egypt for Pharaoh. The Egyptians, one and all, sold their fields, because the famine was too severe for them. The land became Pharaoh’s, and Joseph reduced the people to servitude, from one end of Egypt to the other. However, he did not buy the land of the priests, because they received a regular allotment from Pharaoh and had food enough from the allotment Pharaoh gave them. That is why they did not sell their land.
Joseph said to the people, “Now that I have bought you and your land today for Pharaoh, here is seed for you so you can plant the ground. But when the crop comes in, give a fifth of it to Pharaoh. The other four-fifths you may keep as seed for the fields and as food for yourselves and your households and your children.”
“You have saved our lives,” they said. “May we find favor in the eyes of our lord; we will be in bondage to Pharaoh.”
So Joseph established it as a law concerning land in Egypt—still in force today—that a fifth of the produce belongs to Pharaoh. It was only the land of the priests that did not become Pharaoh’s.”
The exact same thing has happened to us here in the United States of America. Back in 1933, Franklin D. Roosevelt did the exact same thing to the American people. In particular, he did this to the farmers because if you will remember, the farmers represented about half of the population in the 1920s. By 1930 it was down somewhat, but because of the Great Depression, farmers were leaving the rural places of America by the tens of thousands and heading for the cities. In fact, millions of them left the Dust Bowl and headed for California because they could not make a living. The Great Depression had brought a terrible agricultural collapse to America. Now here is exactly what Franklin D Roosevelt did.
The following is taken from the book of Roosevelt chapter 47 and it starts at verse 13.
“And there was no money in all the land, for the Great Depression was very sore in the land of America and all of the several States fainted by reason of the Great Depression. And Franklin D. Roosevelt gathered up all the gold that was in the land of America, and in the several States, for all the Federal Reserve notes which they bought, under House Joint Resolution #192. Franklin D Roosevelt brought the gold into Fort Knox for the Federal Reserve Banks.
When the economy failed in the land of America and the several States, all of the Americans came to FDR and said give us credit for why should we suffer in thy presence for the economy faileth. And FDR said mortgage your property. So the government will give you credit if the economy faileth. So the people mortgaged their property under the government and FDR gave them credit in exchange for the houses and for the farms and for the businesses and for all the properties and he gave them credit for their property for that year and when the year was ended they came out in the second year and they said unto him, we will not hide it from our President how our credit is spent our government also has our houses and our businesses and all of our properties. There is a not left in the sight of our government but our bodies and our limbs wherefore shall we suffer before thine eyes both we and our land?
Buy us and our land for credit and we and our land will be servants unto the United States government, and give us security that we may live and not suffer that the nation may prosper. So FDR bought all of the land of America for the Federal Reserve Bank. The Americans mortgaged every man his field because the Depression prevailed over them. And so the land of America became the Federal Reserve Bank’s land. And what of the people? He removed them to the cities under the 9th planks of the Communist Manifesto from the one end of the borders of America to the other end thereof, only the land of the priests bought he not. For the priests, the Billy Grahams, the Jerry Falwells, the Mormon Church, Oral Roberts and all of the incorporated church businesses had a portion assigned as government 501c3. And they did eat their portion which the government gave them, and they sold not their lands.
Then Franklin Roosevelt said unto the people, behold what I have bought from you this day, August 15th 1935 under the Social Security Act; your land under the Federal Land Bank Act for the Federal Reserve Banks. Here is security for you and ye shall work for the national economy and it shall come to pass that when you receive your pay checks, that you shall give an income tax of 17% to 75% of all that you create and produce unto the government and the rest shall be your own for the 108 benefits given unto you through the Social Security Act. FDR said “all you have to fear is fear itself” and the people said thou has saved us from the Great Depression, let us find security under the government and we will be its servants and FDR made this law over the land of America unto this day, that the government should have an income tax of 17% to 75% of everything that the people create and produce except, of course, the land of the priests which came under tax exemption 501c3.”
