The Future of Freedom Foundation

The Future of Freedom Foundation The mission of http://fff.org is to advance freedom by providing an uncompromising moral and economic case for individual liberty, free markets, private property, and limited government.
(35)

Our nation was founded on the principles of individual freedom, free markets, private property, and limited government. As the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution reflect, people have the natural and God-given rights to live their lives any way they choose, so long as their conduct is peaceful. It is the duty of government to protect, not destroy or infringe upon, these inherent and inalienable rights. For well over a century, the American people said “no” to such things as income taxation, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, welfare, public schooling, economic regulations, immigration controls, drug laws, gun control, paper money, the Federal Reserve, overseas empire, militarism, entangling alliances, and foreign wars. Despite the tragic exception of slavery, the result was the most prosperous, healthy, literate, and compassionate society in history. In the 20th century, however, America moved in the opposite direction—in the direction of socialism, interventionism, and imperialism. The result has been massive infringements on our economic liberty, civil liberties, gun rights, and privacy, along with out-of-control federal spending, debt, and inflation, all of which have reduced our prosperity, damaged our families, and weakened our sense of morality, self-reliance, and voluntary charity. The time has come for the American people to lead the world out of the statist morass in which it has plunged. The time has come to restore libertarian principles to our land. It is to that end that The Future of Freedom Foundation is dedicated.

Mission: The Future of Freedom Foundation was founded in 1989 by FFF president Jacob Hornberger with the aim of establishing an educational foundation that would advance an uncompromising case for libertarianism in the context of both foreign and domestic policy. The mission of The Future of Freedom Foundation is to advance freedom by providing an uncompromising moral and economic case for individual liberty, free markets, private property, and limited government.

As a middle-class citizen I practice the power to vote and exercise the first amendment in speaking, rallying for protection of our freedoms. Power is in money but also in numbers and actions. As I search for more actions within my power I end up on popular sites like facebook, etc. Where I realize this is a great place to change hearts and minds, I cannot help but ask the question: Shouldn't we look for alternatives to these popular liberal-appeasing companies for social media, buying & selling, money transacting, ..?

[The Key of David; The Key of Knowledge; The True Doctrine of Christ; (Revelation 3:7); (Luke 8:10; 11:52); (Isaiah 22:22)]: ******* 24/7 Bible teaching, using the Key of David https://shepherdschapel.com ******* Written lecture notes: https://www.facebook.com/AriNaccanira ^click on "photos." Then, click on "albums." ******* Quick Reference: http://biblestudyforlife.com/key_of_david.ht ******* Proverbs 18:13 King James Version (KJV) 13 He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him. URGENT MESSAGE: PLEASE, FINISH THIS BIBLE STUDY. SHOW THIS TO EVERYONE WITH SPIRITUAL EYES TO SEE, AND EARS TO HEAR. 2 Timothy 2:15 King James Version (KJV) 15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. {[(HE=IS=A=RE+WARDER of those that diligently seek him); (John 8:31-32); (Hebrews 11)]}. Every under shepherd is responsible for their own flock, and will answer to God (1 Peter 4:17). Judgment starts at the pulpit. Those that hear the truth, yet run from it can be turned over to a reprobate mind. God is going to do something much more definite to those that hear, and believe not this message (2 Thessalonians 2:7-12). Nobody can ignore scripture, and be wise. Use the Key of David, or be ashamed (deceived). Proverbs 1:7 King James Version (KJV) 7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Christ cannot return until after Satan comes (2 Thessalonians 2). The false Christ (Satan), will come to the Earth, and claim that he is God at the 6th trump. This will happen before the true Christ Jesus returns, at the 7th trump, and not until = [Hebrews 9:26-28 (ONCE, AT THE END) = 1 CORINTHIANS 15:52 (AT THE LAST TRUMP) = 1 THESSALONIANS 4:17. Scripture is backed by 2 or more witnesses]. The pre-tribulation rapture doctrine is false teaching. Christ is returning for a virgin bride, and those that worship the false Christ (Satan), thinking that he is the true Christ will no longer be spiritual virgins (Matthew 25:1-13). The oil in the lamp symbolizes the truth of God's Word & The Holy Spirit. Those virgins that were rejected had "snake oil" (deceit; falsities; lies) in their lamps. [How could this happen? = Satan spreads confusion through false teaching, and well meaning Christians take men, and women's words / teachings / doctrines to be the truth when they simply are not. If a Christian does not study the Word of God for their own greater understanding, and understand how to do it, they can be easily mislead about various things. MOST IMPORTANTLY IN THIS MESSAGE = aside from the plan of salvation, the most important thing for you to understand, share / teach by sowing the seed of the true doctrine of Christ = THE FALSE CHRIST COMES BEFORE CHRIST JESUS RETURNS = THE PRE-TRIBULATION RAPTURE DOCTRINE IS SATAN'S SNARE FOR THOSE THAT DO NOT UNDERSTAND GOD'S WORD / PLAN / WILL FOR THE END OF THIS AGE. There is a counterfeit spirit that mimics, but cannot duplicate the Holy Spirit. A person can often mistake a counterfeit (evil) when it stands in the role of the genuine (Holy Spirit) on matters that an individual does not know the truth about, yet believes something else they thought sounded right instead. Satan will use the errors in the person's understanding to spread falsities, confusion, Babylon throughout the minds of people, congregations, and everywhere that a falsity, misconception, lie, or lack of knowledge exists (Matthew 16:6). When Satan has a Christian confused, or in the dark about a part of God's Word, the are not aware of it. They must continue in God's Word, seek, ask, knock, read for understanding, meditate on His Word, and pray for the former, and latter rain. MY BELOVED FAMILY MEMBER, IF YOU DO NOT DO THESE THINGS AS HE HAS INSTRUCTED US, YOU ARE NOT GOING TO UNDERSTAND THE END, AND ARE IN DANGER OF WORSHIPPING THE FALSE CHRIST (SATAN, PRETENDING TO BE GOD / CHRIST RETURNED). Satan masquerades as an angel of light (he will pretend /claim to be Christ); (2 Corinthians 11:14 - in the Greek, the word is, "disguised; masquerades)." Guarding a lie with truth, Satan intends to keep them in the dark about discovering the true plan of God, but not after you share the truth with them (Hosea 4:6). Pray for the former and latter rains); (Joel 2:23; James 5:7). God expects us to understand His letter to us (2 Timothy 2:15). {Mark 13; Luke 21; [Matthew 24 - the ones taken first are taken by the false Christ. That is why Almighty God said that HE is against those that teach His children to fly to save their souls in EZEKIEL 13:20 KJV. A student of God's Word can see how Satan was able to use men to change this verse in the NIV to a degree that should alarm you, and give you the desire to give the truth to those that are deceived. The disciples remain in the field working (Matthew 24:13); Hebrews 9:26-28; 1 Thessalonians 4:17 = 1 Corinthians 15:52 (at the last trump). Deuteronomy 30:4; 32:5 (the Song of Moses; chapter 32 is the song that the overcomers sing - Revelation); Psalm 37:9-34; Proverbs 10:30; Nehemiah 1:9; Isaiah 64:4; Zephaniah 3:8-9]}. Out of the 7 churches in the book of Revelation, Christ is only pleased with 2 of the 7 (they are not deceived). We know that John was called up to be shown things by God, in the spirit, ON THE LORD'S DAY = THE DAY OF THE LORD = THE BEGINNING OF THE 1,000 REIGN WITH CHRIST = THE 7th trump = THE END OF THIS EARTH AGE = IT IS ABSOLUTELY NOT TO BE TAUGHT TO GOD'S CHILDREN THAT THIS IS A "rapture (not even in the Bible; Satan's doctrine)." Men have taught their own misunderstandings to others that have passed it on. THINK ABOUT IT: it doesn't say the church. It is John, on the Lord's Day, in the spirit. The only reason Satan was able to deceive teachers about the false doctrine was by being hinged on the false teaching of 1 Thessalonians 4:17, which every false teacher tries to use a scriptural proof of a pre-tribulation rapture of the church. TO BE CLEAR: SATAN WILL BEGUILE MANY WELL MEANING CHRISTIAN CHURCH MEMBERS, AND THEY WILL BE ASHAMED. Marvel not that the church is under great deception for it is written that there will be a falling away, the "great apostasy." Many will worship the false Messiah. "The Mystery of Iniquity" has long been at work (2 Thessalonians 2:7). Plant the seeds: the truth of God's Word. Pray, and be patient. [Matthew 13:30 - this is at the end of the Day of the Lord, yet it is parallel with the events that will transpire before that day / 2nd Advent / 7th trump]. The disciples / saints / election / overcomers remain in the field working for a short season, until the true Christ returns (Mark 13:20; Matthew 24:22). MARK 13 - Jesus speaking, gives the order of events that consummate the end of this age. Luke 21 - Christ Jesus on the order of events that will bring about the end of this age. Study these 2 chapters along side of Matthew 24, and Revelation 6 for understanding. Do not contradict the words, and teachings of Christ as you continue to read the Bible. This will keep you from being confused about God's Word / Will / Plan. The Word does not contradict itself, so if you believe the church is raptured by Christ Jesus, you are incorrect according to Christ. MARK 13 - do not go against anything Christ laid out line by line, precept by precept, about the events that consummate the end of this age, and you will be rightly (discerning) the Word. 1 Thessalonians 4 ~ This was originally written in Greek, a fixed language. English is not a fixed language, and that puts a spin on things. It is important to take your concordance, and study to the roots of the words meanings, or you will run into confusion (Babylon; babyl; darkness; Satan's kingdom). Greek, being a fixed language, does not allow the subject to change. The subject here is: "where are the dead?" The subject cannot change to a false teaching of a pre-tribulation rapture. The second reference to this scripture is (1 Corinthians 15:50-55 - "at the final trump)." 1 Thessalonians 4:4). Stick with Christ and do not be a part of worshipping false idols, religions, other gods. 5). Love is honest, genuine, and true. 7). Holiness is bringing His Word forth, and not deceiving people. 10). Keep doing missionary work and spreading the Word. 11). "Quiet" = "sincere" (understood it). 13). "I don't want you to be ignorant about the dead, and where they are." The heathen don't know where the dead are. [Reference: Ecclesiastes 12:6-7 (the spirit returns to the Father); (2 Corinthians 5:7-8)]. 14). They are already with Him, all of the dead, every one. 15). [Reference: Ecclesiastes 12:7-8; "prevent" = "precede" (Greek). They are already gone. There is no way to beat them there. Some are on the wrong side of the gulf]. 16). The Trump of God is the last trump. The dead in Christ rise first because they are with Him. A person's spirit does not remain in the ground. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust for our earthly bodies have served their purposes. [Reference: 1 Corinthians 15:50-55 (50). Flesh gets crippled, cannot be eternal. (52). LAST TRUMP]. 17). Paul spoke colloquial Greek. "Air" = (Greek: (aer) (ah-ayr'); from aemi: "To breathe unconsciously, i.e. respire; by analogy to blow): "air" (as naturally circumambient). We are caught up in that spiritual body with the Lord; the breath of life; face. "Clouds" [Reference: Hebrews 12:1 (group, swarm, or gathering of witnesses; army that is coming with Christ]: [Reference: Ezekiel 13:2-3, 17-21 (here, "women" mean children of Israel, the seed of the nation (God's people). God is clearly AGAINST those that teach His people to fly to save their souls)]. ^ There must be a 2nd witness to this passage of scripture = 1 Corinthians 15:50-55 - VERSE 52 (AT THE LAST TRUMP). In 2 Thessalonians 2, Paul makes it PERFECTLY CLEAR that there is no Pre-Tribulation "Rapture." We are to remain in the field, working until Christ's return, at the LAST TRUMP. Ezekiel 13:20 King James Version (KJV) 20 Wherefore thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against your pillows, wherewith ye there hunt the souls to make them fly, and I will tear them from your arms, and will let the souls go, even the souls that ye hunt to make them fly. GOD is against those that teach His children to fly to save their souls. DON'T DO IT. Satan takes those that do not stand against the anti-Christ. God did not tell us to put on the Gospel armor so that we could fly away. [2 Thessalonians 2; 1 Thessalonians 5 ~ the "any-time doctrine" is false teaching, the anti-Christ (false Christ, false Messiah, the final king of Babylon, the dragon, the serpent, the little horn, the accuser, the desolator, Satan, comes first, at the 6th trump. He will be posing as Christ). The true Christ will not return until the 7th (last trump), as it is written (1 Corinthians 15:52; Hebrews 9:26). It cannot happen otherwise]. {[Acts 1:1-11 / Zechariah 14:4] - HIS FEET WILL TOUCH THE GROUND}; {Zechariah 9:9-10 (verse 9 = 1st advent); [(verse 10 = 2nd advent); (Revelation 20:4); (Hebrews 9:26); (Zechariah 9:10)]}. We will reign with Christ, on the Earth, for 1,000 years (the Day of The Lord). God Almighty will come to Earth, establishing His Kingdom for ever in Jerusalem at the end of the Day of THE LORD, as it is written. You do not want to fly away with Satan (again, for emphasis). 2 Thessalonians 2 King James Version (KJV) 1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. 5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? 6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. 7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. 8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. Revelation 3:1). Spiritually dead. In a place of a lot of commerce. This brings distractions, religions, and false trails. Christianity is the reality. 2). Plant seeds, and do not support false teaching. 3). "[Hour" (of temptation): anti-Christ (instead of Christ) will try to persuade you spiritually to follow him, by means of any way that is false, but is guarded and disguised with some truth (2 Thessalonians 2)]; [New subject - "like a thief," because many people will think Christ is already here when the false Christ (Satan; the anti-Christ), comes pretending to be Christ, at the 6th trump). The deceived will be unpleasantly surprised when Christ Jesus returns at the 7th trump (Matthew 24:32-51 - the ones taken first are taken by Satan, as the false Christ. The disciples remain in the field working; Mark 13; Luke 21; 1 Thessalonians 4:17; 1 Corinthians 15:52; Hebrews 9:26-28)]. 4). God's elect will stand. The white robes worn in heaven are woven together by our righteous acts (Revelation 19:8). 5). "Blotting out" (erasing). 7). "Philadelphia" (Brotherly Love). It is critical to understand: the key of David unlocks the meats of the true doctrine of God's Word, and includes knowing the genealogy of David, through which Christ came, and the genealogy of Cain, through which the Kenites came. It is much more than genealogy. This is imperative for understanding the mystery of the Kingdom. Study the mystery of the Kingdom, and the mystery of iniquity. [Note: the church members of Smyrna's teachings are this, as will be all of the church members]. The key of David unlocks the deeper understandings of God's Word, and locks God's Word whereby men cannot change it, as they have with many translations (the Kenites; Genesis 3:15-16; 1 Chronicles 2:55; Luke 11:52; John 8:44-45; Revelation 2:9; 3:9). 8). "Open door, and no man can shut it" (once you know the truth, you cannot be deceived. Always stick to the truth, it is a guarantee). "Yehovah" (YHVH; THE=SACRED=NAME of GOD). There is no letter "J" in the Hebrew alphabet. 9). All are gathered at Christ's feet, and bow to Him. It is not us they will bow to. We will be worshipping at the feet of Christ. 10). We know that Satan (the desolator) is the abomination of desolation, spoken of by the prophet (Daniel 9:27; Matthew 24:15; Mark 13:14), and will come as the anti-Christ. Therefore, we are not unsuspecting, deceived, or tempted to worship Satan, pretending to be Christ (2 Thessalonians 2). 12). "Overcometh" (Mark 13; Luke 21; Matthew 24; Deuteronomy 32). "Pillar in the temple," (spiritually). He is the Temple, the Word, and the Body. [Reference: Revelation 21:22-27]. 13). Tuned to the Holy Spirit (discernment). 15). Be morally and spiritually correct. Stand for the truth, and be depended on for doing it. We need works (James 2:14-26). 18). Pray for spiritual "(eyes to see and ears to hear)," and for the former and latter rain, to be awake, watching, working in the field, and having understanding (Revelation 7:1-3; Revelation 9). "Buy gold tried by the fire," = works. The more you burn gold, the purer it gets. It is not that gold will hold a high future value, it is that it works well as a teaching aid for us to understand. 19). God will forgive. He loves, and corrects His children. We must do it His way. 20). Open your mind (heart) to Him, and know and understand His will and plan. He opens the door to understanding, removes confusion, and problems, bringing in peace in its proper resting place (abide). Seek, ask, and knock to receive revelation from His Word. Christ is the Prince of Peace, but there will not be world peace until after God's wrath (1 Thessalonians 5:3-7). 21). True Victory. 22). Christ is only pleased with 2 of the 7 churches in the many membered ONE body of Christ's Church (Revelation 1:11). It is our command to bring that many membered body into one accord, as is the body of Christ, and His Church (Bride). Understand that which is outside of Christ's doctrine is not in the body, but the Kingdom is like a net cast, and those things that don't belong are cast out. God gives us the opportunity to make corrections before receiving judgment. Do not be one that worships the false Christ. They will be attending a false wedding, having been beguiled by Satan, the false Christ. This is a test, and it will happen as God's Word says it will. It is impossible for it not to happen as God said, and impossible that it will not happen. Once again, for emphasis: IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN EXACTLY AS GOD SAID IT WILL (absolute guarantee). No teacher of God's Word is able to disprove the true doctrine of Christ = the Key of David. Once you have / know / understand it, you have clarity, and no matter who the pastors, elders, deacons, teachers, or disciples are, their misunderstandings are both immediately evident to you, and God expects you to give them the truth. Not all will have pliable hearts, the time, or attention span to try to understand the truth. Be patient, plant the seeds, and be there / ready for them to answer questions with scripture (2 Timothy 4:2). Amos 8:11-13 King James Version (KJV) 11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord: 12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the Lord, and shall not find it. 13 In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for thirst. Romans 11:8 King James Version (KJV) 8 (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day. 1 Corinthians 10:11 King James Version (KJV) 11 Now all these things happened unto them for examples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come. [This knowledge is key to having the seal of God in your forehead (mind); Revelation 7; 9:4]. Deuteronomy 30:4; Nehemiah 1:9; Isaiah 64:4; Zephaniah 3:8-9; Psalm 37:34; Proverbs 10:30. As long as you are still in this flesh body, Christ has not returned (1 Thessalonians 4:17 = 1 Corinthians 15:52 - at the Last trump). Understanding the 3 WORLD AGES Biblically: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tdoDjk7JzKg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-yRYq2ipW10 The more you study, the more obvious it becomes. As long as you are still in this flesh body, anyone that shows up, claiming to be God is a fake. LOVE
