The Art of Not Listening

(Rebuking and Refuting bad advice!)

Silver Stock Report

by Jason Hommel, July 1st, 2013

Many people offer well meaning, well intentioned advice.  And so much of it is worse than worthless, but actually harmful! 

In school, we are taught to listen, and regurgitate what they tell us. 

Our parents are always teaching us to listen to them.  And I'm mostly that way with my two young boys, too.  But I also try to teach them to really think.

So, who does teach us to stop and think for ourselves?  Very few.

Perhaps "they" don't want us to think. 

Government does not want us to think, just obey.

Judges (most of whom are former district attorneys who were "tough on crime") and district attorneys don't want juries to think, just obey.  They don't want people who will listen to their own conscience and vote not guilty when the law is unjust, or unjustly applied.  They want to railroad all who dissent against their power structure.  They don't want people to know they have the power of jury nullification, to vote not guilty, or for one man on the jury to vote not guilty and hang the jury, rather than hang the innocent.  They don't want the people to know that juries limit the power of government tyranny, and that's the entire purpose of there even being a jury!

Not listening is often equated with being ignorant.  Stubborn.  Willful. 

In reality, the one man who goes against the herd to stand up for what is right should not be regarded as a traitor, nor as a broken cog in the system, but rather, as a hero.  Not as a snitch, but as a truth teller. 

The worst kind of advice that I get comes from those who profess to be Christians, and who tell me that I should not be preaching the word of God in a commercial newsletter that benefits my own financial self interest.  They claim that I'm like the moneychangers in the temple, or worse.  The reason why this is the worst kind of advice for me, is that it cozies up to me in the name of God and religion and pretends to be a message from God, like Satan who transforms himself into an angel of light.  It sows seeds of doubt in me, discourages me from helping others and telling the truth.  They say I should not try to earn money while preaching God's truths.  They have no problem with God's truths, their problem is that I might earn money while doing it! 

So, I must rebuke it, and correct it.  So, what would they have me do, not tell truths to sell my products, silver and gold?  Should I use lies to sell my products instead?  Insane!  What do they want?

But let's note the contrast here.  This is not in the temple, this is not in the Church building.  This is a commercial newsletter that my readers have signed up to read! 

There is another kind of rebuke I get, those who tell me that it's perfectly fine for me to earn money, and write a financial based newsletter.  But that I should not be preaching God's truths in the process.

See, so some people have a problem with me mentioning God while I mention gold, and others have a problem with me mentioning gold while I mention God.

To hell with both of that kind of utter nonsense! 

God created gold!  So there!  Get over it!  I mentioned both in one irrefutable sentence.  Tough nuggets!  Deal with it.  Deal with the reality of that! 

And what's the alternative?  God said.  It's the mark of the beast, without which no man might buy or sell, and by which men will be deceived into taking, and all who take it will be thrown into the lake of fire!  Revelation 13.

Today, society is on the fence between gold and the mark of the beast, but rushing headlong towards the mark, with only a tiny remnant, one in 1000 headed into gold.

We all use paper money, that consists of a special mark on the paper, or we use electronic credits that are kept track of by the worst monetary offenders in the entire world, the central banks that have a monopoly to counterfeit and create nearly ten trillion of new dollars per year, when the world only produces less than a billion ounces of new silver per year.  The world is creating false wealth at rates of up to 10,000 times more than real money.  And somehow, me, exposing this crime of societal absurdity, is wrong to do if I mention God?  The world has gone insane.  Some Christians in the Church are insane.

Just because some, or even many, have lusted after wealth, and gone astray, does not mean that gold itself is sinful. Gold cannot sin, gold is inert. Likewise, women can be a temptation, and even women can actually sin, but a wife is a gift from god. Just because this modern era is full of Laodicean Christians who have ran after paper money, and are loaded with debt, does not mean that honest money is a reproach. Gold itself is said to be a stumbling block. And so is Jesus, too! People blame gold, and falsely accuse Jesus too. Neither gold nor Jesus is at fault, the sinful people just naturally hate what is good, because the good exposes their evil deeds and desires.

What?  I shouldn't mention money because Jesus was broke and didn't need money?  Half the parables of the kingdom of God are not on the topic of salvation, but are about money!  A major theme of prophecy is about money!  The blessings of the Kingdom of God are not only about long life, but about money!  LOOK:

Isaiah 65:20 “Never again will there be in it
    an infant who lives but a few days,
    or an old man who does not live out his years;
the one who dies at a hundred
    will be thought a mere child;
the one who fails to reach[a] a hundred
    will be considered accursed.
21 They will build houses and dwell in them;
    they will plant vineyards and eat their fruit.
22 No longer will they build houses and others live in them,
    or plant and others eat.
For as the days of a tree,
    so will be the days of my people;
my chosen ones will long enjoy
    the work of their hands.
23 They will not labor in vain,
    nor will they bear children doomed to misfortune;
for they will be a people blessed by the Lord,
    they and their descendants with them.
24 Before they call I will answer;
    while they are still speaking I will hear.
25 The wolf and the lamb will feed together,
    and the lion will eat straw like the ox,
    and dust will be the serpent’s food.
They will neither harm nor destroy
    on all my holy mountain,”
says the Lord.

These are monetary blessings, describing life in the kingdom of God!  To have a life like this, this would not mean that everyone must be a carpenter, and build their own house.  This means that no bank will be repossessing houses!  This means that there will be no property taxes!  This means there will be no wrongful lawsuits that impoverish innocent business owners!  This means there will be no invasions from barbarian hordes or imperial empires!  This means there will be no taxes to fund wars that impoverish others and destroy their homes!  Those are monetary issues!

The differences between life and how it ought to be, and how it is, is a severe rebuke to those who support current systems of injustice.

And then, there are the well meaning who rebuke "prosperity preachers".  I'm sure there are some who need rebuking.  But what is the Biblical perspective on prosperity?

God wants those who are obedient to him to prosper, and this message is consistent in the Hebrew and the Greek!

Walk in obedience to all that the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess.

Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.

and observe what the Lord your God requires: Walk in obedience to him, and keep his decrees and commands, his laws and regulations, as written in the Law of Moses. Do this so that you may prosper in all you do and wherever you go

3 John 1:2
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

Today most people want to prosper by disobeying God.  They want to prosper by gambling in unjust forms of commerce, in futures contracts, derivatives, options on futures, futures on bonds, options on futures on bonds...  There are $400 trillion worth of interest rate derivatives out there.  It's insane.  That last one kills me, what is an option on a future on a bond?  It's the right to buy the right to buy and receive a promise to earn interest on dollars that are backed by nothing, at interest rates that are far below the real inflation rate!  Pure insanity. 

I know there are many voices telling you to not buy silver and gold.  The media.  Your education.  Your well meaning friends and family.  Currently, there are over 99 out of 100 voices telling you to not buy silver and gold, and less than 1 in 100 telling you to buy it.   You cannot go to the popular bad voices for advice.  You have to stop listening to them to do what is right and prosperous for you.

It's taken me years just to realize I needed to write this letter to refute the people saying I shouldn't mention God and gold in the same sentence; people who attack that from two different angles!

Don't wait until you know how to refute the nay sayers on every single one of their invalid arguments to do what is right.  Do what is right first, and worry about rebuking them later.
That's a very difficult thing to do.  You have to think, and trust yourself, and what you know to be true, instead of those other conflicting voices that linger insidiously inside your own head.

May I suggest simple and rare real silver as a viable God given alternative, as a method of Godly obedience to his laws forbidding usury, as a viable and rational method of storing up real wealth, that now has a ten year track record of creating prosperity for those who choose to buy and hold it?

I strongly advise you to take possession of real gold and silver, at anywhere near today's prices, while you still can.   The fundamentals indicate rising prices for decades to come, and a major price spike can happen at any time.
