In a letter to Philip Jones - Righteous Alliance
USURY: from the Middle English - usurie, from Anglo-French and Medieval Latin - usuria, an alteration of the Latin usura. 1. the lending of money with an interest charge for its use; especially: the lending of money at exorbitant interest rates. 2. an unconscionable or exorbitant rate or amount of interest; specifically: interest in excess of a legal rate charged to a borrower for the use of the money.
An ancient word, Philip, a word that has come through the ages slashing and killing, bleeding dry whole nations, driving people from their homes into destitution and despair. The credit card industry, once based solely in the US, but now worldwide, has trapped millions of people into insurmountable debt. Out of control interest rates or usury, add an excess of payments that can never be caught up on. Constant fee hikes and sudden credit limit cuts have destroyed thousands of lives through decimated wages and financial ruin. One man reported that although he always paid on time and always more than the minimum required, found his interest rate jump from 9.9% to a whopping 39%! They also cut his credit limit from $10,000 to $5,000, which of course, put his remaining balance over this new limit, so he is being charged $75 a month in over-the-limit fees until he can bring his balance down past this $5000 mark. God help him if he has any kind of emergency.
The Quran has this to say:
Those who charge usury are in the same position as those controlled by the devil's influence. This is because they claim that usury is the same as commerce. However, God permits commerce, and prohibits usury. Thus, whoever heeds this commandment from his Lord, and refrains from usury, he may keep his past earnings, and his judgment rests with God. As for those who persist in usury, they incur Hell, wherein they abide forever (Al-Baqarah 2:275)
God condemns usury, and blesses charities.God dislikes every disbeliever, guilty. Lo! those who believe and do good works and establish worship and pay the poor-due, their reward is with their Lord and there shall no fear come upon them neither shall they grieve. O you who believe, you shall observe God and refrain from all kinds of usury, if you are believers. If you do not, then expect a war from God and His messenger. But if you repent, you may keep your capitals, without inflicting injustice, or incurring injustice. If the debtor is unable to pay, wait for a better time. If you give up the loan as a charity, it would be better for you, if you only knew. (Al-Baqarah 2:276-280)
O you who believe, you shall not take usury, compounded over and over. Observe God, that you may succeed. (Al-'Imran 3:130)
And for practicing usury, which was forbidden, and for consuming the people's money illicitly. We have prepared for the disbelievers among them painful retribution. (Al-Nisa 4:161)
The usury that is practiced to increase some people's wealth, does not gain anything at God. But if people give to charity, seeking God's pleasure, these are the ones who receive their reward many fold. (Ar-Rum 30:39)
And now we come to that other devil driven debt, the US dollar. People seem to think that inflation is complicated and cyclic. But at its essence, it is merely the printing of excess paper dollars. The more dollars in circulation the less they are worth. At this point, it is said the US dollar is worth about 9 cents. I believe it is less. At our current rate of inflation we will soon need a truckload of bills just to buy a loaf of bread.
The dollar, now being printed for decades by the Federal Reserve, a private banking cartel established in 1913, instead of Congress, has become nothing more than another instrument of debt. Nearly anything can be bought and sold on credit, which creates instant debt, which can be repaid only in cash. And as wages are frozen or slashed, and jobs continue to be lost, this debt on debt cycle will spiral ever downward, dragging the entire country with it.
As we crash and burn, the Illuminati agenda of total destruction of the United States will be complete. And as they usher in their New World Order, complete with a one world currency, desperate people from all walks of life will clamor for it in relief, falling to their knees in worship of the only gods they have ever known: comfort, security and money.
