Evaporating Property Rights

It looks like international property rights are under assault. Leftist Liberal ideology makes no room for personal property. They have this Utopian vision that all property belongs to all people and that the wealth should be spread around. It was very revealing when Obama expressed these sentiments during his campaign. He does not believe in the concept of private property and a key part of the fundamental change he is working to bring to America is to transfer as much wealth as he can to the government so that they can redistribute it.

Opposition to private property is opposition to the order God has established. Spreading the wealth around seeks to usurp God's authority to bless those who He wills. In the Parable of the Talents, Jesus told a story of a nobleman giving resources to his servants "according to his own ability" (Matthew 25:15, NKJ). To the spiritually discerning, it is clear that the nobleman was Jesus and the servants were His followers. God makes us stewards over resources to serve His purposes and He allocates these resources according to a person's abilities. These abilities are revealed in how productive people are at in the work God has equipped them to do.

Thus the free market is the best arbiter of who gets how many resources, not some bureaucrat who seeks to act in the place of God or the free market which is directed by God. Spreading the wealth around is what the Antichrist will do. Daniel 11:24 says, “he shall do what his fathers have not done, nor his forefathers: he shall disperse among them the plunder, spoil, and riches.” Seeing the desire of so many key government officials to spread the wealth around today shows that the spirit of the Antichrist is stronger than it has ever been.

It is amazing to me that most people don't see the flood of tyranny that is about to hit this world. All it will take is another more serious economic disaster. Our government is working hard to bring this greater economic disaster about if a serious oil supply disrupting war in the Middle East doesn't trigger it first. Thank God for the Rapture... His promise to come for us helps me get past the bad news about what the government wants to do to us that we hear every day.
