The Great Depression (Genesis 47:13-26)

The Hard Questions: When studying the Bible verses of Genesis 47:13-26, notice in verse 13 that there was a famine brought on the land of Egypt. Until the time of the famine, the Egyptian farmers were free Sovereigns on their own land who paid no taxes. They owned their land and all that it produced. In verse 14, we see a deliberately contrived depression caused by the drying up of the money supply, as was done with the full knowledge and cooperation of the legitimate government in the Great Depression days of the 1930s. The Depressions in the land were not caused by famine nor any lack of food. They were caused by Joseph and the Pharaoh in the first instance, and by the non-federal Federal Reserve Bank between 1913 and 1933, in the second, by deliberately drying up the money supply; lack of money not lack of food. After gathering up the money, Joseph says in verse 16, IF money fail. Now isnt that just like a modern day politician? Joseph said this after he caused the money to be gathered up. Joseph and the Pharaoh used their foreknowledge of the famine to their benefit and to the peoples hurt. If both governments had been of the people, by the people, and for the people (a true Republic) the governments would have promoted the general welfare of the people; but instead there was insider trading in the commodities produced. Verse 15 finds the Egyptians turning to the Pharaoh (earthly government) in time of need, instead of turning to God. Joseph had directed Pharaohs men to buy up and store all surplus grain during the good years. In verse 22 we see that the priests, already having a secure food supply, had no need to sell their land, their bodies, or their children to the Pharaoh. Thus the Pharaoh and his priests were the only private, non-taxed owners and directors of their land, in all of Egypt, which they totally, with steel hand, controlled. There has always been a certain number of private, non-taxed landowners in the united States as well. You may verify this by checking with your county land tax officer and asking for a map of the county showing how many parcels of land in your county are not taxed. Since the Pharaoh now owned the land, and all the seed, we see in verse 24 how he also had the right to divide the harvest. This is another universal Principle. ONLY the owner of the pie has the right to divide the pie. Because the government owns all of our paychecks, it has the right to divide it up so much for the IRS; so much for Social Security and the left-overs are for you and your little ones. The government owns your entire pay for the IMF; otherwise you would be the one who could divide it. Just think of when the government confiscated all of the peoples gold back in the 1930s, in exchange for printed promises on paper. Verse 25 shows that the Egyptians were so lacking in knowledge that they were even grateful to be slaves, relieved of the burdens of ownership, and the responsibilities of governing their own lives; looking to their directors, for every answer and solution to their cause. The apostle Paul said, If you are free, dont seek to be bound. The Egyptians were looking for grace in all the wrong places instead of finding grace in eyes of our loving God.

What sort of advertising campaign did Pharaoh use to achieve what happened next? Franklin D. Roosevelt said, If it happens in politics, you can be sure that it was planned that way. The Egyptian farmers traded all of their livestock and beasts of burden to the Pharaoh for food; for one year. Why didnt they eat from their livestock instead? Verse 16 came back to life in the 1930s with the Agriculture Reconstruction Acts under FDR. The Egyptians in the end, finally sold their land, their bodies, and their children to the Pharaoh, forever, in return for the benefits he could provide for them. This is an exact parallel to the Social Security Act in the 1930s. The word servants, incidentally today, could more accurately be translated, slaves. In verse 21 we see the people being moved off their farms and into the cities. In the 1930s this was called the Urban Movement as the banks began to foreclose on mortgages and Americans were herded off the farms into the cities to form the labor pools required to produce the war machinery and weapons for World War II.
