AS WE TURN TONIGHT TO THIS SUBJECT ‘JUST WEIGHTS AND MEASURES,’ it is with the realization that the problems which beset the world tonight, that the administration of the areas of exchange and the manipulation of areas of value and the powers to create depressions or prosperity, is a tremendous power welded by a few. And because of surrendering of such an authority to their power, has been a particular operation of super-confidence of men in the world horizon. When I speak to you tonight, we tell you that the Bible clearly marks a period of great danger. For this interprets the words in their minds. When we are told that the love of money is the root of all evil, it is when men worship money for the sake of money, and the power which it will produce, and seeks to buy men and their lives and their civilizations in order that they might acquire this substance. And they go mad with Satan’s design. And under this instance, here comes this great area of error. There are those who have cited that money itself is the error. But it is not. It is the ‘love’ of money which outweighs principal and direction that is the root of all evil that is in the world at this hour.
You may say that the powers of darkness are not guided by the love of money. But I point out to you that the life flow of the goods necessary for survival are a part of the strategy of the enemy. And by beholding what they believe to be the very blood stream of commerce and trade, and industry and enumeration they seek to design the world from the point of servitude. This is one of the remaining principals for gaining control of the earth, the fact that no man will be able to do business, nor buy, nor sell, except he give assent to their program and assume the obligation of supporting their way of life. And thus takes the mark in the seat of his intellect and places it upon his hand. This is alluded to by The Christ as the very heart of the Beast system. And the very mark of the Beast is this assent to the programs of darkness and to the gaining of such power over people.
There has been promised to those who would serve the program of the Beast, even among nations of God’s kingdom, that their authority will be increased and their influence will be increased, and that they can rule over this system under the dominions of this power. Thus they will be above their brethren and the household from whence they come, if they will serve this gigantic octopus of evil.
