New Retail: Excitement in the World’s Marketplace

fireworks, excitement

A number of people believe we are “living in exciting times.”

In fact, there are those who greet others with some variation of “We live in exciting times!”

Of course, what so many are excited about is most likely NOT what should be stirring their body, mind and spirit.

This was brought to mind recently by the continuing conversion of the world’s retail sales establishments to the New Retail.

The New Retail involves buying and selling ONLINE (instead of in person).  And while this might not appear to be a very big change from the way buying and selling have traditionally been conducted, it is.

A HUGE change.

TRADITIONALLY, the way the business of buying and selling have been conducted has been simple and effective.  Person #1 wants to buy a product.  Person #2 has such a product for sale. Person #1 inspects the product to make sure that it is what he wants. Then, Person #1 gives Person #2 enough money to cover the price of the product.  Person #1 then leaves with the product (which he now owns) in hand and can immediately use the product.

IN THE NEW RETAIL, Person #1 wants to buy a product.  Person #2 claims he has such a product and describes the product (usually providing a picture of the product).  IF Person #1 wants to take a chance, he then provides Person #2 with proof of who he is and gives Person #2 enough electronic money to cover the cost of the product AND SHIPPING. And then Person #1 waits until Person #2 sends him the product.

Instead of the traditional exchange, there is a New Retail exchange where the buyer has to TRUST the seller to eventually provide him with the product–and not only a product, but the RIGHT product that Person #1 had in mind. IF any disagreements or the product is not right, then the buyer has to also trust that the seller will make it right.

To facilitate the transition to the new retail, old-style “brick and mortar” stores will A- no longer provide a wide selection of products; B- any popular or useful products they do offer will be offered ONLINE as a form of the New Retail.

And in a country which was ONCE known as the “marketplace of the world,” fewer and fewer stores have less and less once-common, everyday product for sale.

Maybe it should be “Marketplace of the NEW World“?

As one woman recently put it: “The stores don’t have ANYTHING any more.  AND what they do have,  they want you to order them online! Online!  There’s nothing IN the stores any more!”

Now, some readers may wonder, “Why change a system which has worked perfectly well since man began buying and selling?”

Why would those changing the system suffer losses in order to do it?

Why change a system which has worked well FOR CENTURIES; since man began buying and selling?

The Bible explains that there will come a day when buying and selling will be HIGHLY CONTROLLED by a false prophet/messiah/man of sin as a way to enforce his decrees.

“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”
–Revelation 13:16-18

The New Retail is the beginning of this new system of commerce which will be necessary in order for the man of sin to control who buys and who sells.

NOW does the reader understand the BIG PUSH to persuade folks to buy their groceries online?

And eventually, folks WILL buy their foodstuffs online–or they will not eat.

There are more pieces of this end times commerce puzzle which need to slide into place before the system is ready to launch.

But there are a great many pieces already in place.

As stated at the beginning of this piece, it is exciting times in which we live.

Even if the reader does not believe the construction of a whole new way of buying and selling is very exciting.

HAS the reader noticed any changes in trying to obtain once-common products?

HAS the reader then reassured himself with the soothing “Things change“?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”

More Fries, Please!

fries

While standing in line at a store recently, waiting to be checked out, a female of the perpetual teen persuasion was observed wearing a provocative tee shirt with the following enblazoned on it

FRIES BEFORE GUYS!

This was printed underneath a picture of some pink-and-yellow, candy-colored french fries.

As the shirt was thought-provoking, a few thoughts were provoked.

1- There are more and more public displays of statements which focus on one sex dismissing the other. Females displaying their disdain for males; males displaying their distaste for females: such behavior is NOT gender-specific.  From where was this attitude learned?

2- “Fries before guys” is a good way to teach the youngsters about fighting the patriarchy.

3- Most females who declare their intentions of favoring fries before guys most likely did not have much of a choice in that matter anyway.

HAS the reader come across such slogans?

DOES the reader smile OR does the reader think about what the words are REALLY trying to say?

The Foolish Ways of the Wicked

foolish fool

The word “foolish” means a great deal more than merely silly or comical.

Often, God’s Word uses the words “evil” and “wicked” interchangeably with the word “foolish.”

“The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.”
–Psalm 5;5

“For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.”
–Psalm 73:3

“For my people is foolish, they have not known me; they are sottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge.”
–Jeremiah 4:22

“Remember this, that the enemy hath reproached, O LORD, and that the foolish people have blasphemed thy name.”
–Psalm 74:18

“A foolish son is a grief to his father, and bitterness to her that bare him.”
–Proverbs 17:25

“And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.”
–Matthew 7:26-27

At other times, the Bible calls sinners “fools.”

“The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.”
–Psalm 14:1

“He that hideth hatred with lying lips, and he that uttereth a slander, is a fool.”
–Proverbs 10:18

“A wise man feareth, and departeth from evil: but the fool rageth, and is confident.”
–Proverbs 14:16

“As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly.”
–Proverbs 26:11

It is not hard to see why God would call the sinner, the wicked and the evil man “foolish.”

Life on this earth is short–it is over quickly.

YET, the evil man lives his life as though this world is all that there is.

The foolish man ALSO will consider the words of other (also foolish) men before he considers the Word of God.

God’s Word clearly warns man of the dangers of sin and transgressing God’s laws.  Besides that, there is a great many promises made by God to those who obey his law.

YET, the wicked man ignores all of this–and pays a heavy price, both in this life and the one to come.

God has sent prophets to specifically warn man of the consequences of his sin.

YET, the sinner has convinced himself there will be no everlasting penalty to pay: that no judgment will ever be rendered against him.

It is little wonder the Bible calls such men “foolish.”

 

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

Choosing a Life of Torment and Affliction

torment, affliction

“There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD”
–Deuteronomy 18:10-12

Despite the VERY CLEAR warnings in God’s Word, a great many are deceived into consulting with familiar (demon/evil) spirits.

Because demons/evil or familiar spirits are a judgment from God, they bring torment and affliction to all those they visit. But because the wicked are not only deceived, but rebellious, they ignore the very clear warnings in the Bible and open up lines of communication with their doom.

IN EFFECT, any who consult with a familiar spirit CHOOSE a life filled with torment and affliction.

HOWEVER, these deluded souls convince themselves it would be much worse without the source of that torment: their familiar spirit.

And modern media is FULL of how-to articles on various aspects of the care and feeding of familiar spirits.

As befits the deceived, a great number of stories are told about the familiar spirit–which is the source of ALL power for the necromancer, witch, charmer, fortuneteller, wizard, astrologer and sorcerer..  These stories not only deceive the one employing the familiar spirit, they also are intended to deceive the public at large as well–particularly about where the spirit user obtains his power.

In a modern Wiccan’s perspective, a familiar is a witch’s companion in both the spiritual and physical realms, often chosen intuitively by the witch, and is commonly an animal spirit who has made itself known as a magickal partner to the witch.
Animal Familiar Spirits in Wicca and Magick

One of the most deceptive of the stories is that the familiar spirit will PROTECT the one consulting with it.

BUT, if this is true, then why do so many using familiar spirits complain of the bad treatment they receive from neighbors, the authorities and others they come in contact with?

Though the claim of a familiar spirit PROTECTING the one consulting it is a familiar one, the complaints of the world abusing the “protected” one are also common.

This contradiction is illustrated in the Bible’s account of Saul, the first king of Israel who formerly had decreed death to those with familiar spirits, and his forbidden meeting with the witch of Endor, a woman known for having a familiar spirit.

“And when Saul enquired of the LORD, the LORD answered him not, neither by dreams, nor by Urim, nor by prophets.  Then said Saul unto his servants, Seek me a woman that hath a familiar spirit, that I may go to her, and enquire of her. And his servants said to him, Behold, there is a woman that hath a familiar spirit at Endor. And Saul disguised himself, and put on other raiment, and he went, and two men with him, and they came to the woman by night: and he said, I pray thee, divine unto me by the familiar spirit, and bring me him up, whom I shall name unto thee.

And the woman said unto him, Behold, thou knowest what Saul hath done, how he hath cut off those that have familiar spirits, and the wizards, out of the land: wherefore then layest thou a snare for my life, to cause me to die?
–1SAMUEL 28:6-9

Even though the woman had a familiar spirit, she was frightened about dying for using the familiar spirit.

So what kind of protector is the familiar spirit then?

Though those who consult with familiar spirits are quick to point the finger at ANYONE or ANY THING other than their familiar for their many misfortunes, the truth is that the lives of those with familiar spirits are a mess–though the one with the familiar spirit will often DENY this state of affairs as their familiar spirit is the ONLY thing which they feel is “right” about their lives.

Again, if an impartial referee was to be hired for everyone who claimed a familiar spirit, the good and bad happenings would not be as those which are claimed by the ones who use such spirits.

Again, those who consult with familiar spirits not only CHOOSE a life of torment and affliction.

They desperately cling to such torment.

DOES the reader know of anyone who has a familiar spirit?

DOES the reader know of anyone who might employ a familiar spirit?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
