DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR

In Bible in Daniel 5:25-27 Belshazzar the king held a great feast for 1000 nobles. He reigned after Nebuchadnezzar II in 634-562 BCE king of ancient Babylon who repented and accepted God in Daniel 4. Yet Belshazzer felt bigger than God so commanded the God’s Holy Sacred Golden and Silver vessels raided from God’s Temple for worship to be used to party and drink. So God wrote words appeared on palace wall, “Mene, mene, tekel, upharsin warning judgements upon Nebuchadnezzar. The Most High God gave Nebuchadnezzar his father’s kingdom, greatness, glory, majesty, so people, nations, and languages trembled and feared him. Those he slew, kept alive, raised up, or put down. So his heart was lifted up and his spirit was hardened so that he dealt proudly. So God deposed from his kingly throne, and took his glory from him and he was driven from the sons of men, and his heart was made like the beasts, and his dwelling was with the wild asses; he was fed with grass like oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven; until he knew that the Most High God Rules in the kingdom of men and sets up over all whosoever God Will. So for not humbling his heart lifted up against the Lord God of heaven, brought the vessels of God’s House to your lords, wives, concubines, drunk wine from them; and praised the gods of silver and gold, of brass, iron, wood, and stone, which see not, nor hear, nor know; and the God in whose hand thy breath is, and whose are all thy ways, hast thou not glorified. So God’s Hand Writing inscribed, 25 Mene, mene, tekel, upharsin meaning,  26 Mene:- God numbered your kingdom so brought it to an end 27 Tekel :- you were weighed and found wanting 28 Peres:-your kingdom is divided so given to Medes and Persians. 29 Then he commanded Belshazzar, and they clothed Daniel with purple and put a chain of gold on his neck proclaimed Daniel 3rd ruler in the kingdom. 30 That night Belshazzar the Chaldean King was slain. Such over-hyped delusions of grandeur is caused by superiority complex that makes some people think they are bigger than they really are. Consequently, they go through life by insisting others treat them bigger than everybody else. They live in error so see the world as exclusively belonging to them only so have no respect for fellow human beings. They reinforce their faulty thinking by structural institutional concepts of ungodly methods to coerce and force people to comply against their wishes. This makes them greedily take lion shares of all resources on earth although the earth is the Lord’s plus all silver and gold and cattle on a 1000 hills. They think they own the world so abuse people by exploitation, austerity and zero hours although zillions of funds are available to make each person on earth 10 billion dollars rich x 10 times over in fairness and justice. Delusion of grandeur is achieved by underhand tactics under developing others to create supremacist banking crises for which ordinary people are punished. As high-profile privileged validate status for control over people in society, it is time to reflect the implication ramifications of God’s forthcoming judgement. The list of global network of billionaires net worth grows longer doubled from 250 billion to 500 billion in UK. People hear or read about growth daily so feel inspired and motivated to aspire to be rich like those dedicated hard work billionaire accomplishments. It all well and good to want to become very wealthy as the Bible has many rich people since Adam, Abraham and Solomon among others. Many were rich as part of God’s Covenant  plan for them to sustain them and to equip them to build God’s tabernacles and temples and provide for the poor and strangers among them. After looking at many rich people however, there is connection in the a pattern that emerges in modern new wealth compared to old slave money is nominal. The bizarre concept remains that some are forever much greater and more powerful so insist on influencing every citizen on earth. With such arrogant fixed delusion of grandeur, false belief that one really possesses superior qualities to imbibe in others such as genius, fame, omnipotence or wealth more than those deprived. This undue travesty of injustice of multi national supply chain companies outwardly prioritize civilisation to selectively promote the few to fundamentally discriminate against the inferior deprived dependent on rich few. Those getting richer with long – term steady businesses grown over the years centuries of abuse of others. This ideology is perpetrated so ordinary hard – working people dream and aim towards becoming very rich like such role models. This principle is applied globally promising people their dignity if the follow their colonial master’s advise they will overcome challenges to become developed like such ‘advanced’ countries. With internet in jungles, iconic classic Hollywood programs to influence and conditions nations to follow fashion, lifestyle for progress. Growth is necessary but the question is the one size model framework of reference fair to fit all struggling nations deprived by those taking undue advantage of wealth head start as masters controlling stock market prices of gold, diamonds, resources demand to compel to develop like them? This idea is put into education modelled on colonial master’s tastes and values as if there is nothing naturally worthy in those who are different from them. Just look at the contents of education to see if records of history and geography books equally acknowledge fellow human beings as equal of honour and privilege. The majority middle classes earn good incomes from skills and expertise. It is true some entrepreneurs build business from scratch without any inheritance from relatives. Others are wealthy from lottery won making them today’s multi- millionaires over night. Another way often reiterated is education is the key to life so all are encouraged to study hard at school to be absolutely the best they can be.So education is made compulsory to force people to tow the line to monitor people out of fear thinking life will offer what usurpers raided from them. With ambition anticipation of excellent career, opportunity for huge loans are taken so given to young economically vulnerable people, untrained in use of money, lacking wisdom in financial management. Majority use loan to accomplish education goal investment in debt. Many go on to achieve great success in excellent careers, have a bright future so progress by professional development. A few cross class boundaries with the right connections and networking to go beyond all expectation into positions of power, authority and leadership. While all these sound great as good success stories, on the other hand is the emerging pattern of the global trend of high unemployment coupled with debts from many generations of graduates. The seemingly available wealthy luxury abundant to those who work hard. The grandeur of delusion of consumerism designs genetically modified seeds so farmers continue to depend on them. Extreme hard work forms part of the success story because the level of achievement is not based on hard work alone. Those discriminated against without opportunity despite academic qualification or expertise not given same opportunity to thrive. Those living in abject misery hardly get the chance to get their fee through the door onto the success ladder. With no place to live, no job, no equal chance to be the best they can be this leads to frustration, despair, hopelessness, helplessness. With the cold weather and circumstances unfit for humans to endure, many become angry from hunger. Many are disappointed with life they do not know whom to turn to. Worst of all leaders supposed to be in charge are unfortunately responsible for manipulating circumstances in their favour yet intimidating victims of the success. These issues are caused by distortions of illusive perception encountered in search of gold at the end of the rainbow. The seemingly cover story line view is certain people worked so hard over the years they are enjoying the fruit of their labour today. So encourage all to follow in their footsteps to become like them. A closer look at the origins of majority of the sources of the rich tell a rather different story. Sponsors of education globally tell their version which they want to be heard and studied. The underdog’s different history is never recognised or acknowledged. It beggars belief that the ones responsible for destroying and under-developing them also mock and attack them for laziness. In effect, they seem perhaps to fail to realise the impact of the knock on effect of cause and effect domino consequences on others to date. Coupled with the subliminal economic slavery is killing softly strategies to subdue and wear out psychologically. With structural institutional racism undertones, they claim to be Christians yet torment fellow human beings. Depriving them of resources, trade restrictions, controlling the wealth of all nations to aggrandize themselves. These painful experiences are not palatable so unfair as giant elephants fight minute ants made poor, outmanoeuvred and squeezed bleeding dry by fat cats of Bashan who indulge themselves. Overwhelming ideology conditioned delusions of grandeur cause distorted propaganda to portray victims blacks as golly woks, niggers Cherokees, Zulus, Mexicans etc. usurped as villains, bad guys in films, cartoons, books, magazines to perpetually condition hatred against them for generations to date and beyond. Their presence is seen as a threat so they are treated ruthlessly always as second class citizens. As these victim are just about figuring how to recover from human slavery and colonialism they face a new attack of the greatest and most lucrative business today which is war. Get rich quick warmongering contractors invade whole nations to bomb and destroy them then give them meagre bread crumb resources left overs of oppression. The human beings caught up in these traumas face dehumanized displacements caused by trillions of dollars of unrealistic gigantic super abundance bubble. Meanwhile, those suffering ravaging rummage and rampage of war are told the war reconstruction effort will make their lives better. Yet history shows wars cause more damage than solutions. Those living in dire deterioration are given meagre hand-outs from war profits given in humanitarian aids to sear their conscience. The trillions of dollars from grandeur means realistically the gains of war benefit the few who torment others deprived to enrich themselves. The whole world is ravaging in suffering reinforced by ivory towers to guarantee wealth from generation to generation. These issues have exploded beyond measure as millions suffer. The irony, is the ones who can afford to hire and employ others hide their wealth in off shore accounts. They use machines that have no families and pay no mortgages and throw perfectly good food buried in the ground while fellow human beings are starving. These conditions are made worse by those who enjoy this grandeur by association supposed to represent their people to influence wise decisions. So those without infrastructure system damaged and ravaged by war, cannot be self – sufficient.  Their ambiguity of hostility from conflict means lands filled with land mines that blow others up. Due to violence cannot farm, graze animals for meat. Fuel, gas, raw material wars cost lives, water sources and put security of nations at risk. The flip side of delusion of grandeur forced on those assimilated to conform lose unique self-belief, self-identity, sense of accomplishment, diversity achievement. The benefit of the few who play with priceless lives of others deprived from a safer world while reinforcing their own privileged comfort. Others toil in vain for years so these issues cannot be swept under the carpet. The cliques who promise the moon are discovering the deception to keep others permanently dependent on so-called super powers is ineffective.The aggrieved ravaged poorest nations on earth cannot continue to be controlled and maltreated by the few who do not care about damage caused them. The people cannot compromise their precious lives by radical blood sucker wasters so need to resist by looking within for to help themselves. Looking up to those who destroy you for salvation and rescue is like a Jew waiting on Hitler to protect. In other words, people need to be real to change to recreate alternative means of priority of source of confidence and trust. So the most comfortable thing is not to continue to be frustrated and disappointed by those who deliberately provoke and destroy others to build themselves up in gluttony while all starve. it is important to have courage to go to great lengths to follow your heart and intuition on what God made you to be. So promote your life according to God’s Higher Purpose and Plans positively to belong to God’s Kingdom not coerced, forced to comply as clones to fulfil other’s grandeur of delusions. In Romans 2:11, the bible says, God is no respecter of persons but in every nation those who fear God and draw very close to Him prospers. God shows no partiality but provides every person with the opportunity to succeed in Jesus Name. When the first Gentile was converted to Christianity, Peter perceived explained that “God shows no partiality. But in all nations whoever fears Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him in Acts 10:34-35. Before the church was established and Gentiles began to be converted to Christ, many Jews supposed that God favoured them over all other ethnic groups; some had the false notions merely being Jewish was a sure sign that one was saved in Matthew 3:9; Luke 3:8; 7:30. The barrier between Jews and Gentiles is broken down. Peter more fully understood one important aspect of God’s character. God does not favour one person or group of people over others so the Israelites God’s chosen role models. Anyone who obeys God’s commands is justified in His sight. The passages emphasizes God’s fairness toward all humans beings equally because if God is for all underprivileged exploited who can be against them?
