*Gain and Loss

*The enemies of truth deleted some 280 words from this article.

The greatest gain a human being can get is eternal life. The greatest loss for any human being is his soul.

The idea of gain or loss is of paramount importance to a man (mankind, woman and child included), a worldly man, a secular man, an earthly man – a sinful man. Another concept related to this idea of gain or loss is self-interest. Self-interest is whatever that has impact on a human being positively or negatively. For example, it is in your self-interest to make a profit in your business and avoid a loss. It is in your self-interest to be industrious when you are young so that you will not regret when you are old. If you do not save for your retirement, do you expect the bankrupt government with huge deficits and big debt is going to take care of you? Another example, it is in the interest of all mankind to protect the environment. If you cut down the tree for firewood, a bare mountain is going to cause landslide and flood. Proliferation of private cars is the doom and destruction of any nation. Cars bring air pollution, land pollution, water pollution, accidents and casualties, car thefts and insurance fraud, the high cost of gasoline that enriches OPEC and oil companies, and a series of car-related crimes. If you let hordes of goats to eat and uproot grassland, you are going to turn the grassland into a desert. These considerations are the basis of politics, economics, finance, trade, investment, etc. 

WOE! WOE! WOE!

AMERICA!

SODOM AND GOMORRAH!

On June 27, 2015 I believe the Unites States of America is destined to doom and destruction.

I don't believe the United States of America can be saved, or can last another century.

On June 27, 2015 Supreme Court declared nationwide right to same-sex marriage. The U.S. government (executive, legislative, judiciary) works together to destroy the Christian faith and value. Although American has never been a Christian nation, it is now no. 1 anti-Christian and anti-Bible nation in the world, thanks to the work of American leaders including Obama. It was like a 10-point earthquake and giant tsunami that wiped out the foundation of American moral values. America has committed a moral suicide that is wiping out the foundation of Christian value and practice.  The U.S. Supreme Court decision is a proof of American moral suicide which holds the three branches of government responsible and liable. Obama has accomplished nothing positive worthy to be mentioned in his two-terms, and yet this same-sex legalization is his achievement. In American world of distortion and perversion, the unnatural is declared natural; the abnormal is legalized as normal. America has a reached a moral point of no return – the moral Cassandra train is accelerating without brake or restraint in a fast track to doom and destruction. The destination of American high speed train is collapse of human civilization. The biggest and blackest lie is about marriage equality. Same-sex marriage is not an issue of equality; it is an issue of abnormality. Pretty soon in America there will be advocates for marriage with animals – bestiality. If homosexuality has succeeded in becoming legal in America, bestiality is not far away.

Based on the facts presented above, I would no longer consider Scandinavia my favorite nations. At least the Scandinavia I knew (in 1975-76) is no longer the Scandinavia it is today. There is no endearment in deviation; fish-eye is not a precious pearl. Sad is the imminent collapse of human civilization.

Here I stand, I can do no otherwise.
The night is far spent, and the day is at hand. The coming of the Lord is near. The second coming of Christ is imminent.

16. Which nation in 2015 does not patrol in its own territories but under the pretext of navigation freedom routinely and habitually violates China military defense zones in the South China Sea and the East China Sea and incites its running dogs to do the same in order to create trouble and turmoil in Asia Pacific?

The answer is: the evil empire of America.
American democracy is phony, tyrannical aristocracy is true. The organized, vested and special interests; the presidential gang, the self-appointed chieftains of congress, the corporate syndicates of Wall Street and Hollywood, the self-serving bureaucrats; the gun, healthcare, drug and insurance monopolies; the Washington lobbies, the entitlement groups, etc. rule the United States. The one percent of American population rules the 99 percent of population which is fundamentally contrary to democracy that is majority rule. The same organized special interests rule America, the same the Gang of Seven nations (America, Japan, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, and Italy) rules the world. Let China, Russia, and oppressed nations of Asia, Europe, Latin America, and Africa join forces to overthrow the oppressive world order set up by the Axis of Evil led by the United States and supported by the evil empire of Japan and rat and rogue nations. Judging from all the deeds and events have taken place post World War II by American leaders (elected and appointed, civilian and military), there be enormous wickedness or insanity all the way. No honest child of God would believe anyone of them is a Christian. Except President Richard Nixon, in spite of Watergate, sought a just a lasting peace for the world.
Now at length of some 51 years of experience and observation, I do not have the happiness to know that America is a setting Sun. They are brought about by treacherous and malicious American leaders. The sun of America can rise again if American people throw out American imperialists, hegemonists and militarists and give up the evil empire to regain the respectable Republic.
It is most sad and shocking that American leaders (elected and appointed, civilian and military), attested by facts and proofs assuredly do not have:
1.    Sincerity
2.    Integrity
3.    Morality
4.    Responsibility
5.    Humanity
6.    Honestly
7.    Good will
8.    Compassion
9.    Righteousness
10.    Goodness
11.    Justice
12.    Truth
13.    Trustworthiness
In pursuit of absolute military supremacy and world domination, fixing on immoral principles and self-interest American leaders have used means and have done the most malicious, vicious, wicked and evil things only God knows all of them. What kind of monsters and warmongers have American leaders become? Just keep a record of what they say and do since post World War II. Beyond doubt, they have proved themselves to be liars and killers par excellence since the end of World War II. If there is a true portrait of America the evil empire, all its leaders are under the sheltering wings of Injustice and Folly, crowned with corruption, greed and violence by the devil disguised as an angel of light, illuminated for the whole world to see.
There is no reason to believe American imperialism will cease in the near future; there is much reason to believe that American leaders will grow worse and worse and may bring the world to the verge of global nuclear war and total destruction, unless they are effectively stopped by massive and fierce protests of American voters, or God. Although they claim to be Christians, Jesus Christ defines them as children of the devil. Jhn 8:44, “You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”

What is the G7? 

G7 is the gang of seven nations attempting to dominate and dictate the world by force and tyranny. Its purpose and modus operandi are outdated, hopeless, useless, harmful, counterproductive and destructive. They cannot solve problems of the world solely because they are the causes of world problems; they are world’s pressing problems.

The Seven Gangsters are over ambitious, conniving, deceitful, immoral and unscrupulous persons, hoping to profit from the chaos and confusion and conflict rapidly overtaking the world. Except the japs prime minister who is a believer in primitive religion and idol worshiper, the other six persons claim to be Christians. But liars and killers are not Christians, they are children of the devil according to Jesus Christ.  Birds of a feather flock together, they flock with the evil prime minister of Japan, so they belong together.

The Gang of 7 nations hypocritically expressed concern (June 2015) about unilateral moves attempting to change the status quo in the East China Sea and the South China Sea and will commit maintaining maritime order under international law is an attempt to distort historical facts and cover up for American aggression and expansion since America is not even a signatory member of United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. It means the U.S. does not want to comply with the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea.

In the first place, the East China Sea and the South China Sea belong to China long before America and Japan have existed, the devils of seven attempt to change the status quo of the East China Sea and the South China Sea. The United States and Japan have violated China since the infamous Opium Wars to this day. What China does to its own territories is no concern of anyone, especially America and Japan who violated the international law and sovereignty of China in 1971 by illegally giving administrative control of China’s Diaoyu Islands to the unconditionally surrendered war crime nation of Japan. Are the other 5 members of the G7 ignorant of this fact or blind to truth or they believe a lie? It is disappointing that decent nations like Germany and Canada would become part of the American and Japanese conspiracy. In particular those nations which showed outrage and anger about Japanese denial of World War II war crimes, sex slavery and genocide unduly become partners with America and Japan in the evil scheme of distorting facts and spreading falsehoods about China and Russia in an attempt of pursuing absolute military supremacy and world domination. According to the Bible, all nations who are co-conspirators with America and Japan participate in their evil deeds and guilt. G7 is the root cause of world problems; let all peace-loving nations denounce it and reject their self-claimed leadership and condemn their violations of international law and sovereignty of nations. America is the leader of the Axis of Evil because it militarily and politically supports the false claims to and robbing and looting of China’s territories and resources in the East China Sea and the South China Sea by its running dogs Japan, Philippines, Vietnam, etc. Since post World War II, the United States and its allies have illegally instigated hundreds of unjust wars and bloody military interventions that killed millions and millions of innocent peoples around the world. America and its allies are responsible for creating the dire problems in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Ukraine, etc. The Gang of 7 led by America with its aggression, expansion and provocation is inciting a global nuclear war that will destroy and end the world.
The member states of the G7 are the United States, United Kingdom, France, Canada, Italy, Japan and Germany; collectively known as the "Group of Seven," and represent the world's largest industrialized economies. Since economies are tied closely to politics, it is their politics that cause world-wide economic problems. Take the U.S. the sole superpower which in post World War II became the warmonger, arbitrator, oppressor and suppressor and international bully of nations. The post World War II world created by the U.S. and its gang represents a bad, unfair, unjust, unrighteous and ugly world. The American leadership becomes the number one threat to the world. With its support, the evil empire of Japan becomes the second threat to the world because of its resurgent militarism and the denial of war crimes and distortion of history. The third threat is Islamic terrorism, a reaction to American imperialism, hegemonism and militarism. Japan is the worst nation on earth after World War II which has no reason to exist, it exists for the unholy ambition of resurgent Japanese imperialism and militarism and its role as running dog of America. Although Germany, America, United Kingdom, France, Canada, and Italy all urged Japan to face with its war crime liabilities and responsibilities, they produce no result and Japan should be ostracized and isolated as a pariah nation. The evil empire of Japan has three internal time bombs, namely national deficits and debts, bank debts and pension debts. It would not be a surprise if Japan goes bankrupt. American leadership is wrong and morally, politically, economically unsustainable. The policy of aggression and expansion by conquest is ludicrous and ridiculous in the 21st century and Post Cold War world. As it has been the case of China’s led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), all American allies and friends especially the 5 member of G7 (except America and Japan) have abandoned American leadership and have become the founding members of AIIB. American leadership should be treated as a passé, a new world order should be built and begun in cooperation with China, Russia and all the oppressed nations of the world. Imperialism and colonialism of any form can no longer be accepted or tolerated. As long as America is the self-appointed world leader and self-anointed world police and arbitrator, there will be wars of aggression and intervention; and peace, prosperity and stability will not be possible. Japan is openly and clearly a nation does not want to redeem itself and a hopeless international outcast. America is unlikely in the near future to change its face and skin of an imperialist. The only hope for the world is to unite Europe, China, Russia, Latin America, Asia, Africa and the rest of the world in building a community of nations based on mutual benefits, harmony, equality, international law, justice and peace. On the path to peace, prosperity, stability and harmony – America and Japan are stumbling blocks to be removed if they do not remove themselves. Not only the Cold War is over, the era of military alliance and confrontation is also over. American and Japanese leaders do not seem to get the message.
The new world order has begun if only the five nations and China, Russia, Latin America, Europe, Asia and Africa seize the golden opportunity once in a thousand years of China-proposed “Silk Road Economic Belt” – (一带一路 along the way) all inclusive is the brightest policy, as containment of China policy is the worst policy since the end of World War II because of its exclusive and aggressive nature. The development strategies represented by China and AIIB members for common prosperity for all participants to boost cooperation on infrastructure, energy, finance, security, and cultural and people-to-people exchanges will serve as a new beginning. What a brave and bright new world for all, excluded imperialist and terrorist.
In self-defense it would be wise for China to drop or turn down the coming state visit to America, for Obama is a devil disguised as an angel of peace. To visit America in the face of its aggression, expansion, provocation, hostility, falsehood and ill will only exacerbate the situation, like adding fuel to fire. You cannot do business with a devil, the man’s words have no value, and his heart as black as charcoal. It is time for China to implement tit for tat policy in retaliation against American imperialist, Japanese militarist, aggression and expansion of leprous and rogue nations Philippines and Vietnam with fit response and strong measures, otherwise the enemies of China might conclude China is weak and construe China’s inaction as weakness.

THE UNITED STATES’ WITHDRAWAL FROM INTERNATIONAL COURT OF JUSTICE JURISDICTION clearly demonstrates and displays the intent of U.S.’s unwillingness to comply with international law and participation in international dispute settlement processes. American leaders have violated too many laws and conducted so many unjust wars and bloody military interventions which had killed millions and millions of innocent peoples around the world since the end of World War II that they are afraid to be prosecuted.

American leaders are political, economic and military spiders expert and skillful in weaving an intricate web of deceit and falsehood to victimize China and Russia in pursuit of absolute military supremacy and world dictatorship in leading the Axis of Evil consisting of the evil empire of Japan, Australia and rat and rogue nations of Philippines, Vietnam, etc. It is good that Thailand refuses to become a military base of America. It is wise for Singapore to wake up and ditch America as a military base. It is hoped India would not fall for American trap of entanglement. It is hoped that Korea would reject to be American running dog with Japan and reunify with North Korea. Let all peace-loving nations rise up to reject American imperialism and hegemonism for good.

God's law is by nature good, just and precious. 

In comparison the nature of American law is malicious, vicious and wicked. For example, the US-Taiwan Relations Act is such a malicious, vicious and evil law. The United States violated international law and sovereignty of China by making a province of China, Taiwan,  an American colony since 1949 by military force, even the U.S. recognizes Taiwan as a part of China; and forces Taiwan to buy American lethal and costly weapons so that the Chinese may kill Chinese. The American leaders have kept Taiwan separate from China to this day and do not want Taiwan to reunify with China because American leaders are afraid of a strong and united China. Sadly there are Chinese traitors in Taiwan such as Lee Teng-hui, Chen Shui-bian, Ma Ying-jeou, and anti-China Party DPP民进党 Tsai Ing-wen 蔡英文 who are willing running dogs of America and take orders from Washington.


A political prostitute from Taiwan seeks pimps in Washington.

Viewed from all aspects and supported by facts and evidence, the anti-China DPP leader民进党 Tsai Ing-wen 蔡英文  in June 2015 went to Washington to court approval and curry support from the officials of the American imperialist is tantamount to a political prostitute shamelessly and shamefully and salaciously seeking a pimp for protection and lustful liaison. Oh, what a happy union of a prostitute with her pimps! These are conclusions that any honest and intelligent person can draw without difficulty:
1. Legally Taiwan is a province of China (even acknowledged by the U.S. government); illegally Taiwan is a protected colony of the evil empire of America by force of American 7th Fleet since 1949.
2. From Lee Tung-hui, Chen Shui-bian, Ma Ying-jeou to Tsai Ing-wen all are more or less willing running dogs of America and agents to serve the interest of the American imperialist, not China’s interest.
3. The fact that DPP leader民进党 Tsai Ing-wen 蔡英文  needs and seeks approval of American government is self-evident of the naked aggression and provocative intervention of the American imperialist in China’s internal affairs.
4. The fact that the two Taiwanese parties KMT and DPP both seek instruction and take order from the American government tells how evil is the American empire that blatantly violates international law and the sovereignty of China.
5. The fact that KMT and DPP leaders and followers willingly want to serve the American interest proves that Taiwan and Taiwanese people have committed treasons against the motherland China.
6. The fact that KMT Ma Ying-jeou implements a policy of peaceful coexistence with Mainland China and pro-America stance in buying costly and deadly weapons from America to be used to kill Chinese tells clearly KMT government has no intention to reunify with China.
7. The fact that DPP Tsai Ing-wen 蔡英文 wants to maintain so-called “current status” with China means Taiwan wants independence, two nations, separate states no matter how she tries to muddle issue and fool the public, she cannot change the true color of her face and the black color of her heart.
8. The fact that both KMT and DPP want to maintain current status because the American imperialist does not want a unified and strong China; and American leaders are afraid of a strong and united China.
9. The fact that both KMT and DPP do not intend to reunify with China and they want to remain as a protected colony and willing running dogs of America to serve the interest of American imperialist, the whole world should have misunderstanding that America is truly the aggressor and Taiwanese leaders and people are China’s traitors.
10. Since the intention of KMT and DPP leaders and followers is made clear to be a colony and running dogs of America, China should not have any delusion or illusion about Taiwan. Taiwan has American advanced and deadly weapons and one of the four American largest radar networks (Japan, Philippines, Korea and Taiwan) to target China nuclear facilities and poised to destroy China’s strike back capabilities. China and Chinese people cannot and must not accept the "current situation" of Taiwan which is a de facto treason. Thus, Taiwan is not a jade but a broken tile of China. China has no option but to smash and strike at the broken tile and break it to pieces so that it cannot be used by the enemy. It is no use to be patient and have false hope indefinitely. Taiwan and Taiwanese are not worth a dime.
The Chinese traitor Tsai Ing-wen 蔡英文 is like a political prostitute who goes to America looking for the support of American pimp. Why would Taiwanese become so degrading that they would support anyone who recognizes thief as father and protector?

Tsai Ing-wen 蔡英文hypocritically and fraudulently lifts up two phony banners of democracy and peace. If Taiwan is a true democracy (democracy means majority rule not just having useless and manipulated election), why would the political opportunist prostitute herself in seeking recognition,  protection and approval from a foreign power - the enemy of China? By what right America has anything to do or say about the internal affairs of China and Taiwan?  If she believes in peace, why she all Taiwanese American agents and running dogs want to buy costly and deadly American weapons so that the Taiwanese could kill Chinese? If the Taiwanese traitor Tsai Ing-wen is really for peace, why doesn't she object to one of the four largest American radar networks installed in Taiwan targeting to destroy China's nuclear facilities and strike back nuclear capabilities.

What American leaders and the anti-China party DPP want is to keep the status quo of Taiwan being a protected colony of America, and Taiwanese leaders taking orders from Washington, and Taiwan never reunifies with China. For American leaders and Taiwanese traitors do not want and they are afraid of a strong and united China. They have betrayed the motherland, their ancestors, the honor of the Chinese people. China will have no choice but to liberate the treacherous Taiwan by force for good.
蔡英文in English means no win.

The anti-China Party DPP民进党 Tsai Ing-wen 蔡英文 who goes to Washington to seek approval and instruction is like a prostitute who seeks protection and liaison from a pimp. The current status of Taiwan is abnormal because it was created by the American imperialist in 1949 that violated the international law and sovereignty of China by sending the 7th Fleet to protect the defeated regime of Chiang Kai-shek and thus prevented Taiwan from reunification with Mainland China to this day. Adding injury to insult, American leaders in 1979 passed the illegal and unconstitutional so-called the U.S.-Taiwan Relations Act to force sell costly and deadly weapons to Taiwan so that the Taiwanese may kill the Chinese in fulfilling American strategy of “divide and destroy” China. America also established one of the four largest radar networks in Taiwan (the other three are in Japan, Philippines and Korea) intended to target China’s nuclear facilities and China’s strike back nuclear capabilities. The U.S. set up military bases in Singapore, Korea, Japan, Philippines, Australia, Vietnam, etc. in order to encircle and target China. Taiwan present status is a protective colony of American imperialist in violation of international law. The DPP leaders and followers want to separate Taiwan from China and become independent. There is no evidence that either party (Kuomintang and DPP) want sincerely or seriously join China in defense of China’s Diaoyu Islands or protect the territorial integrity of China against America and the evil empire of Japan. Both leaders of the two parties are willing agents and running dogs of America more or less. This rebellious and treacherous situation cannot be allowed to continue any longer. There is no evidence to indicate Taiwanese are patriotic Chinese, they only want to make big money and get benefits from China. Ample evidence can be used to level charges of treason against Lee Teng-hui, Chen Shui-bian, Ma Ying-jeou, Tsai Ing-wen 蔡英文, the mayor of Taipei, etc. When Taiwan is liberated, these traitors and running dogs of America should be put on trial to be executed in public and let them stink for a thousands years. 

What does the American imperialist have to gain in wasting trillions and trillions of dollars in conducting hundreds of unjust wars and bloody military interventions that killed millions and millions of innocent peoples around the world since the end of World War II in pursuit of absolute military supremacy and world domination to become the most hated nation on earth?  Those wasted trillions and trillions of dollars can be used to build an American good society with great infrastructure such as super high speed trains, super subways, super highways and freeways, super airports, super harbors, super schools, super affordable housing, super affordable healthcare system and a super fair legal system that benefit Americans and win the respect and admiration of the world for being a great Republic. Apparently, American leaders (except President Richard Nixon) lack good sense and wisdom. They are leading the United States of America and the world to the path of death and destruction.

The United States of America is the evil empire and greatest threat to peace and security in the world today. Yet American leaders are expert in distortion of facts and they have been proven liars and killers since the end of World War II in fabricating false claims and pretenses to conduct so many unjust wars and engage in so many bloody military interventions that killed millions and millions of innocent peoples around the world. American foreign policy is driven by aggression and expansion. America has more than 700 overseas military bases to encircle and target China and Russia. American leaders (except President Richard Nixon) have been consistently and persistently pursuing absolute military supremacy and world domination. Obama's  so-called "pivot to Asia policy" is the code word for American pursuit to dominate and control Asia Pacific. The so-called re-balancing Asia is to prevent China from peaceful rise so that America can become the dictator and ruler of Asia Pacific. The so-called freedom of navigation is to blockade China in the South China Sea and the East China Sea with 65 percent of American most advanced armed forces and weaponry and stationed at China's doorsteps with more than 350,000 troops, and established the four largest radar networks in Japan, Philippines, Taiwan and Korea poised to strike at China's nuclear facilities and destroy China's strike back capabilities.  When American leaders say the U.S. take no position - it means the U.S. is behind the scene executing the plot of aggression and expansion. In 1971 the U.S. violated international law and sovereignty of China by illegally giving administrative control of China's Diaoyu Islands to the unconditionally surrendered war crime nation of Japan. At first Obama said the U.S. took no position, but American armed the evil empire of Japan to a resurgent militarist with most advanced weaponry and then declared to defend Japan against China. Although American leaders fully know that Diaoyu Islands belong to China long before America and Japan have existed. American leaders say to have concern about the stability and security in Asia Pacific, and yet American leaders support false claims and unlawful occupations by Philippines, Vietnam, Japan in China's territories in the East China Sea and the South China Sea and stir up rat and rogue nations to make trouble for China.  American leaders fraudulently and hypocritically raise up the banner of navigation freedom, and yet they on purpose violate China's military defense zones by their warplanes and warships. In the words of American leaders, freedom of navigation means American warplanes and warships can freely patrol and violate China's military defense zones by their provocative military spy planes and warships in the South China Sea and the East China Sea.

The tragedy of tragedies, the British colony of America that escaped the British empire's iron rule now becomes the sole superpower that wants to colonize the world, and since 1949 has colonized Taiwan a province of China.  American leaders who sing about rule of law is the no. 1 violator of international law.  American leaders who extol peace and security are preparing to have wars of aggression against China and Russia. America is the warmonger and troublemaker today. American leaders want all kinds of freedom for themselves legal or not, but they intend to enslave the world and make free nations their running dogs. Being the sole superpower, America has oppressed and suppressed many nations since the end of World War II and so become the most hated nation on earth. For that reason all the world including American friends and allies (except Japan) have joined China's led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) to escape American economic and financial control and domination. American leaders cunningly and skillfully say one thing and actually do the opposite thing.  American leaders want peace, but they prepare for wars of aggression daily and conduct military exercises ceaselessly.  American leaders want security, but they send out armed forces with most advanced weaponry to doorsteps of China and Russia.  American defense means not to patrol or navigate in its own territories, but in the territories of other nations, as America has made the South China Sea and the East China Sea their backyards and sphere of influence.

WHAT IS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA?

True knowledge of America consists of knowing what America is and is not. Anything more than that is delusion and illusion. For American leaders hypocritically pretend to be what America is not and tell scurrilous lies. American armed forces in Asia Pacific is not the security for Asia Pacific, they are the threat to Asia Pacific, they are the threat to the world. A friend of mine told me American threat is worse than the terrorism and threat of Islamic state. I concur. There is sword hidden in the mouth of American leaders and blood in their hands. Since the end of World War II, American leaders have been proven liars and killers; except President Nixon who sought a just and lasting peace for the world. Jesus says, those who lift up the sword will die by the sword.

The recent (in May 2015) American military operations in the South China Sea in violations of China’s military defense zones fully display and demonstrate the American open expansion and naked aggression against China on purpose. It is once more time confirms of American imperialism and pursuit of world domination. The American recognizance and war planes had been warned 8 times by Chinese military. China has every right to shoot down American planes of provocation. What are the American leaders are doing? The American absurd excuse is that they do not recognize China's territories in the South China Sea. The South China Sea and the East China Sea recognized by the world long before America and Japan existed. Historians might not recognize the U.S. because American pioneers robbed the land of the Red Indians and almost killed off the Red Indian race. If they really want to defend America, they would do so in the East coast and West coast of America. No one would object to it. Why 65 percent of American armed forces are deployed at China’s doorsteps in the South China Sea and the East China Sea? The clear purpose is American provocation, aggression and expansion. The American armed forces have no legal right or legitimate interest at China’s doorsteps in the South China Sea and the East China Sea under all false pretenses. They do so is to provoke China into war with the United States. The United States has a number of overseas military bases encircling and targeting China equipped with the world’s four largest radar networks in Taiwan, Japan, Korea and Philippines and hundreds of missile and anti-missile sites targeting to destroy China’s nuclear facilities and strike back capabilities. China does not have war planes flying around or near America. China does not have one overseas military base targeting America. The fact is crystal clear: China is no threat to the world; America is the number one threat to the world security with its ally the resurgent Japanese militarism. The United States is the aggressor, warmonger, trouble-maker, and international lawbreaker and bully. It would be wise for President Xi of China to turn down and reject state visit of America since Obama is the no. 1 China’s enemy, and cease all military cooperation with America. China needs to execute tit for tat policy in retaliation against American aggression since 1949. American imperial leaders pose the clear and present danger to the world. If American leaders continue their aggressive and provocative military actions against China, it would not be a surprise that eventually turn into military actions and confrontations that may trigger a global nuclear war and consequently the destruction of the world. It is high time for American people to rise up to stop the insanity and brinkmanship of American corrupt and wicked leaders once and for all. It is time for the community of nations to stop American aggression and expansion everywhere in the world.

Americans and peoples of the world have the right to know the truth about what American leaders are doing to America and the world.

1. American leaders lied and killed millions and millions of innocent peoples around the world in violation divine and human laws since the end of World War II in hundreds of unjust wars and bloody military interventions they instigated and conducted all over the world.

2. Except President Richard Nixon who sought a just a lasting peace for the world, all American presidents since the end of World War II have sought absolute military supremacy and world domination and so they established over 700 overseas military bases and missile and anti-missile sites to encircle and target China and Russia.

3. To achieve absolute military supremacy and world domination American leaders have wasted trillions and trillions of taxpayer money in designing, developing, manufacturing, and deploying lethal weapons to arm America with capacity to destroy the world many times over and arm the unconditional surrender war crime nation of Japan, Philippines, Vietnam, all American allies and NATO, and forces sale of costly and dead weapons to Taiwan which was made an America colony so that Taiwanese may kill Chinese.

4. Since 1949 American leaders violated international law and China’s sovereignty by sending the 7th Fleet to protect the defeated regime of Chiang Kai-shek, made Taiwan an American protected colony and prevented the reunification of Taiwan with China to this day all because American leaders are afraid of a united and strong China. American leaders continuously, shamelessly and immorally interfere and meddle in Taiwan in order to execute its “divide and destroy” China policy. Lee Teng-hui, Chen Sui-bian, Ma Ying-jeou and DPP民进党 Tsai Ing-wen 蔡英文  are willing running dogs and agents of American imperialism.

5. Again in 1971 American leaders violated international law and sovereignty of China by illegally giving administrative control of China’s Diaoyu Islands to the war crime nation of Japan. At first Obama said the U.S. took no position on the sovereignty of China Diaoyu Islands, later and now American leaders provocatively say to defend Japan against China over Diaoyu Islands under the pretext it falls under the perimeter of American-Japanese military alliance. The American-Japanese military alliance is the alliance for aggression and expansion. The truth is Obama’s “pivot to Asia” needs the evil empire of Japan to suppress and target China in order to dominate Asia Pacific.

6. Now American leaders have put 65 percent of all its most advanced and deadly weapon systems, war machines and weaponry, 4 largest radar networks in Japan, Taiwan, Philippines, and Korea; with more than 350,000 troops stationed nearby China, with continuous invasive and provocative military exercises at China’s doorsteps, patrolling and navigating in China’s territorial waters in the South China Sea and the East China Sea and air defense zones to get ready to launch a war of aggression against China in order to destroy China’s nuclear facilities and destroy China’s strike back capabilities. Chinese leaders and people must not be fooled by American seduction and false promise. For American leaders cannot be trusted just as the devil cannot be trusted.

7. In Europe American leaders also maneuver military preparations and actions against Russia with NATO and Ukraine. The same facetious and vicious propaganda to spread China’s threat also used in Europe to spread the rumor of Russian threat. In fact, Crimea is not Russian aggression. Overwhelming majority of Crimean people exercised self-determination and voted in a general referendum to rejoin Russia. It was legal and democracy in action. 

8. The problems of the world are not caused by threat of China or Russia, they are caused by American leaders who lie and kill in pursuit of absolute military supremacy in order to dictate and dominate the world. America is the evil empire today with its member of Axis of Evil, including the resurgent militant Japan. America stands on the wrong side of history with the unrepentant and resurgent evil empire o f Japan. American also incited and supported rat and rogue nations like Philippines, Vietnam, etc. to make false claims to China’s territories in the South China Sea and the East China Sea and stir up some Asian nations against China. China does not have one overseas military base and China does not navigate and patrol in east coast and west coast of America.

9. If American leaders are really for peace, stability, freedom, human right, rule of law, and security of the world, American leaders would abandon all its overseas military bases, withdraw all its military weaponry (war planes, nuclear submarines, fleets, aircraft carriers, etc.) and troops from all over the world and return to America to guard its east coast and west coast (not in Asia and Europe, etc.), cease to have continuous provocative military exercises and preparations for war, and cease to develop and deploy more and more lethal weapons of mass destruction, cease to sell and market deadly weapons of death, cease to intervene and control the internal affairs of nation, abandon the self-appointed police and executor of nations, and give up the empire and return to become a respectable Republic.

10. Since there is no slightest evidence or glimpse of hope that American leaders would seek peace and harmony and prosperity in the world, the unfolding of history in the making will reveal the coming of a global nuclear war triggered by American aggression, expansion and intervention whether directly or using its allies and proxies. The world will have no choice but to prepare and face the consequences of the total destruction of the world. 

What does the American imperialist have to gain in wasting trillions and trillions of dollars in conducting hundreds of unjust wars and bloody military interventions that killed millions and millions of innocent peoples around the world since the end of World War II in pursuit of absolute military supremacy and world domination to become the most hated nation on earth?  Those wasted trillions and trillions of dollars can be used to build an American good society with great infrastructure such as super high speed trains, super subways, super highways and freeways, super airports, super harbors, super schools, super affordable housing, super affordable healthcare system and a super fair legal system that benefit Americans and win the respect and admiration of the world for being a great Republic. Apparently, American leaders (except President Richard Nixon) lack common sense and wisdom. They are leading the United States of America and the world to the path of death and destruction.

WHAT IS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA?

True knowledge of America consists of knowing what America is and is not. Anything more than that is delusion and illusion. For American leaders hypocritically pretend to be what America is not and tell scurrilous lies. American armed forces in Asia Pacific is not the security for Asia Pacific, they are the threat to Asia Pacific, they are the threat to the world. A friend of mine told me American threat is worse than the terrorism and threat of Islamic state. I concur. There is sword hidden in the mouth of American leaders and blood in their hands. Since the end of World War II, American leaders have been proven liars and killers; except President Nixon who sought a just and lasting peace for the world. Jesus says, those who lift up the sword will die by the sword.

6. Now American leaders have put 65 percent of all its most advanced and deadly weapon systems, war machines and weaponry, 4 largest radar networks in Japan, Taiwan, Philippines, and Korea; with more than 330,000 troops stationed nearby China, with continuous invasive and provocative military exercises at China’s doorsteps, patrolling and navigating in China’s territorial waters in the South China Sea and the East China Sea and air defense zones to get ready to launch a war of aggression against China in order to destroy China’s nuclear facilities and destroy China’s strike back capabilities.

Peoples and nations of the world, be alert!

The end of the world is near. 

The second coming of Jesus Christ is imminent.

Jer 6:13,“For from the least of them even to the greatest of them, everyone is greedy for gain, and from the prophet even to the priest everyone deals falsely.”

Note: To be greedy for gain in Hebrew is batsa` which means to be covetous, gain by unrighteous violence, gain wrongfully or by violence, to violently make gain of, to get unjust gain; - it occurs 16 times in the Old Testament. To deal falsely is to deceive, defraud and rob people. Wall Street dealt falsely and looted the world more than $50 trillion in the 2008 economic and financial crisis Wall Street executives and bankers created. Politicians and lawmakers and officials deal falsely because they are bought and corrupted by special interests. Doctors and hospital owners, drug and insurance companies, labs and medical suppliers, etc. deal falsely because they commit predatory practices and fraudulent and excessive billings. Corporations and businesses deal falsely by making false claims and blackmail the innocent.

Jer 8:10,“Therefore I will give their wives to others, their fields to new owners; because from the least even to the greatest everyone is greedy for gain; from the prophet even to the priest everyone practices deceit.”

Deceit in Hebrew is sheqer which means lie, deception, disappointment, falsehood, fraud, wrong, falsehood, vanity; - it occurs 113 times in the Old Testament. American leaders using democracy, freedom, human right, rule of law, security, etc. to practice deceit, what they do is to seek absolute military supremacy in order to rule the world. Politicians and lawmakers who use public funds to benefit and enrich themselves and their associates practice deceit. Businesses and industries that manufacture fake and contaminated drugs, drinks and food for profits practice deceit.

Jer 22:17,“But your eyes and your heart are intent only upon your own dishonest gain, and on shedding innocent blood and on practicing oppression and extortion.”

Note: Oppression in Hebrew is `osheq which means extortion, injury, keeping down by force, spoliation; - it occurs 15 times in the Old Testament. Extortion in Hebrew is mĕrutsah which means crushing, oppression of the poor, gain by threats or abuse of power; - it occurs only once in the Old Testament. Your eyes and your hearts reveal what you are up to. What you seek reveals what and who you are.

As human beings are eager for gain and seek self-interest, consequently man becomes greedy. Greed is the root of all evils. The Scriptures cited above fitly describe the American society. In America from the least even to the greatest everyone is greedy for gain. From Wall Street, Washington and Hollywood everyone practices deceit. Since the end of World War II the leaders of America have been shedding innocent blood and practicing oppression of China and others and extortion by sanctions. 

Roughly there are two kinds of gain or loss: earthly (worldly) versus heavenly, material versus spiritual, temporal versus eternal. Jesus Christ brings up a vital issue to confront you with the most important question and wants peoples of the world to honestly examine their hearts and minds and perform cost-benefit analysis to come up with true value. 

I.    EARTHLY GAIN

Mar 8:36,“For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?”

Note: Profit in Greek is ōpheleō which means to be useful or advantageous, to assist or help, to be of use or advantage, to reap a benefit or advantage; - it occurs 15 times in the New Testament. Gain in Greek is kerdainō which means to get gain, win, acquire; - it occurs 17 times in the New Testament. Lose in Greek is zēmioō which means to suffer loss, sustain damage, receive injury; - it occurs 6 times in the New Testament. Those who hold wrong values would rather gain the whole world and lose his own soul. 

1Ti 6:5, “And constant friction between men of depraved mind and deprived of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain.”

Note: Friction in Greek is diaparatribē which means constant contention, incessant wrangling, strife, perverse disputing; - it occurs only once in the New Testament. The conflict or contention between the evil empire of Japan and China is perverse. Diaoyu Islands belong to China long before Japan or America had existed. The evil empire of America in 1971 illegally gave the administrative control of China’s Diaoyu Islands to the unconditionally surrendered war crime nation of Japan. Japanese leaders of depraved mind and deprived of the truth nationalized China’s Diaoyu Islands. American leaders of depraved mind and deprived of the truth declared to defend Japan if war breaks out over Diaoyu Islands. The friction between the rat and rogue nation of Philippines and China is perverse because Philippine leaders of depraved mind and deprived of the truth relying on the sole superpower want to rob China’s territories in the South China Sea. The conflict between India and China is perverse because Indian leaders of depraved mind and deprived of the truth want a large chunk of China’s territory which the evil empire of Britain marked out on the map designated as the Indian colony. Depraved in Greek is diaphtheirō which means corrupt, changed for the worst, ruined; - it occurs 6 times in the New Testament. Deprive of in Greek is apostereō which means to defraud, rob, despoil, keep back by fraud, destitute of; - it occurs 6 times in the New Testament. Here is a great truth: A depraved mind is deprived of the truth. A depraved mind is destitute of the truth. It is impossible for a depraved mine to uphold the truth. There is no truth in a depraved mind. That explains why and how Japanese leaders blatantly tell blackest lies without shame and deny the truth. The Gain here in Greek is porismos which means acquisition, a source of gain; - it occurs only twice in the New Testament. Preachers and followers of prosperity gospel are those who suppose godliness is a means of gain. Many live just to acquire worldly possession. 

Tts 1:7,11;“For the overseer must be above reproach as God's steward, not self-willed, not quick-tempered, not addicted to wine, not pugnacious, not fond of sordid gain, who must be silenced because they are upsetting whole families, teaching things they should not teach for the sake of sordid gain.”

1Pe 5:2, “Shepherd the flock of God among you, exercising oversight not under compulsion, but voluntarily, according to the will of God; and not for sordid gain, but with eagerness.”

Note: Fond of sordid gain in Greek is aischrokerdēs which means eager for base gain, greedy for money, greedy of filthy lucre; - it occurs 3 times in the New Testament. All false prophets and false preachers teach things they should not teach for the sake of sordid gain. Prosperity gospel preachers preach the wrong gospel for the love of money. Followers of prosperity gospel believe in a lie for the love of money. 

1.   What do most people want to gain?

Gain honor

Exd 14:4,“Then I will harden Pharaoh's heart, so that he will pursue them; and I will gain honor over Pharaoh and over all his army, that the Egyptians may know that I AM the LORD." And they did so.”

Note: Gain honor in Hebrew is kabad which means to be heavy, be weighty, be honorable, be glorious, be honored, enjoy honor, get oneself glory or honor, gain glory, show oneself great or glorious; - it occurs 116 times in the Old Testament. It is proper and right for God to gain honor over Pharaoh. It is fitting for the Almighty to gain honor over the universe. It is dangerous for nations or individuals to seek and show themselves great or glorious. All dictators and leaders of the sole superpower have fallen into the pit of power. 

There is no honor in gaining to be the dictator and oppressor of the world.

Gain possession of the land

Psa 44:3, “For they did not gain possession of the land by their own sword, nor did their own arm save them; but it was Your right hand, Your arm, and the light of Your countenance, because You favored them.”

Note: The most disgraceful thing is that the United States in 1971 illegally gave the administrative control of China’s Diaoyu Islands to the unconditionally surrendered war crime nation of Japan, not one American leader or member of the establishment of American media tells the truth. Not only the American leaders do not repent of their sins and crimes, they even declare to defend Japan in case of war with China. Obama’s pivot to Asia policy is nothing but seeking absolute military supremacy and world domination. The U.S. is leading and aiding the evil empire of Japan, rat and rogue nations of Philippines, Vietnam, etc. in the coming war of aggression against China in order to rob China’s territories and loot China’s resources in the East China Sea and South China Sea. The evil trinity of America, Japan and Philippines tell so many leukemic lies such as China’s threat, in fact they are the threats to the security of Asia and the world. America, Japan and Philippines violated the international law in occupying China’s territories and turned around demanded China to obey the international law. These liars and killers have no morals, no shame, no conscience, and destitute of truth. America and its allies want to gain China’s land or territory may bring about a global nuclear holocaust that will destroy the world. 

Gain acquisition

Lev 25:45, “Then, too, it is out of the sons of the sojourners who live as aliens among you that you may gain acquisition, and out of their families who are with you, whom they will have produced in your land; they also may become your possession.”

Note: It is normal to gain legal acquisition such as buying a house. It was reported a corrupt official acquired 193 houses. Greedy for money and power and pleasure are the root of all evil in the world. The wicked want to gain, gain, and gain; acquire, acquire and acquire. The evil trinity of Wall Street, Washington and Hollywood demonstrate the evil way of life in gaining acquisitions upon acquisitions, power upon power without end. 

Gain mastery

Est 9:1,“Now in the twelfth month (that is, the month Adar), on the thirteenth day when the king's command and edict were about to be executed, on the day when the enemies of the Jews hoped to gain the mastery over them, it was turned to the contrary so that the Jews themselves gained the mastery over those who hated them.”

Note: Gain mastery in Hebrew is shalat which means to dominate, domineer, exercise power over, have mastery, become master, lord it over, obtain power; - it occurs 8 times in the Old Testament. The biggest problem of humanity is that a few want to be masters over the many. That is the origin of dictators and oppressors and warmongers. The biggest flaw of America is seeking absolute military supremacy and world domination. 

Gain wages

Isa 23:18, “Her gain and her harlot's wages will be set apart to the LORD; it will not be stored up or hoarded, but her gain will become sufficient food and choice attire for those who dwell in the presence of the LORD.”

Note: Harlot’s wages in Hebrew is 'ethnan which means hire or price of a prostitute; - it occurs 11 times in the Old Testament. You have heard that the former New York governor paid prostitutes $5,000 an hour!

Jesus says, Luk 10:7, “Stay in that house, eating and drinking what they give you; for the laborer is worthy of his wages. Do not keep moving from house to house.” It is right for a worker to gain wages. It is wrong for some Wall Street fund executives to make a few billions a year while millions of Americans earn the minimum wages between $7.30 - $10 an hour. Wall Street executives looted more than $50 trillion from the world in 2008 economic and financial crisis they created. Many executives make so much because employees make so little. So many employers are very rich because they pay their employees very low wages and many without benefits and pension. The American democracy and capitalism make 1 percent of the population very rich and the 99 percent very poor. The 1 percent of American population are masters, the 99 percent are slaves. Wall Street, Washington and Hollywood love the wages of unrighteousness.

See An Immoral Economic Theory

Gain profit of silver and gold

Pro 3:14,“For her profit is better than the profit of silver and her gain better than fine gold.”

Note: Profit in Hebrew is cachar which means gain from merchandise, gain from traffic; - it occurs 4 times in the Old Testament. Gold Bullion Prices in 1972 high $70, in 2012 high $1,791.75. I have always said, gold is the game of the rich, the poor should not play. The average price of silver rose to $4.71 in 1974, and in 2012 was around $26.135. The profit of wisdom is far above silver and gold. 

Gain ascendancy

Dan 11:5,“Then the king of the South will grow strong, along with one of his princes who will gain ascendancy over him and obtain dominion; his domain will be a great dominion indeed.”

Note: Gain ascendancy in Hebrew is chazaq which means to strengthen, prevail, grow strong, become strong, grow firm, grow secure; - it occurs 290 times in the Old Testament. An evil empire like Japan wants to gain ascendancy in Asia by alliance with the sole superpower hoping to oppress and suppress China and rob China’s territories. A rat and rogue nation like Philippines wants to gain ascendancy by becoming the running dog of the sole superpower to rob China’s territories. In American corporations, many people want to get ahead by trampling on others. There are wicked people who have no ability, their only skill is preventing others from achieving. The most disgusting way of gaining ascendancy in business is to claim credit on other’s achievement. 

Gain control

Dan 11:43,“But he will gain control over the hidden treasures of gold and silver and over all the precious things of Egypt; and Libyans and Ethiopians will follow at his heels.”

Note: Gain control in Hebrew is mashal which means to rule, have dominion, reign, exercise dominion; - it occurs 81 times in the Old Testament. The sole purpose of existence for supremacists seem to want to control others, to rule over other people. This was the seed of colonialism and imperialism. Some nations want to control oil, some want to control diamonds and gold, others want to control weapons of mass destruction. All dictators want to control power. All monopolists want to control something. Monopoly is the restraint of competition. The West is rich because it obtains so many monopolies, patents and copyrights. For gaining control of computer operating system, it made one the richest man on earth. The job of government is to suppress monopoly and provide equal footing for everyone. Union wants to control jobs. The conflict between labor union and management is an obstruction to equal opportunity and equal right and equal pay and destruction of many enterprises. I do not want to be a slave and so I have no interest in being a master. In my observation, the white race seems to be more interested in gaining control over people, power and riches. 

Gain riches

Dan 11:2,“And now I will tell you the truth. Behold, three more kings are going to arise in Persia. Then a fourth will gain far more riches than all of them; as soon as he becomes strong through his riches, he will arouse the whole empire against the realm of Greece.”

Note: The agenda of the evil trinity of Washington, Wall Street and Hollywood is to gain riches and power. Doctors and hospital owners through monopoly and predatory practices gain riches, filthy lucre. Those who want to gain power and riches inevitably become aggressors and oppressors. Empire was built to gain power and riches and glory. All colonial and imperial powers are unrighteous nations. 

Gain of oppressions

Isa 33:15,“He who walks righteously and speaks uprightly, He who despises the gain of oppressions, who gestures with his hands, refusing bribes, who stops his ears from hearing of bloodshed, and shuts his eyes from seeing evil.”

Note: Gain of oppressions is unjust gains. What a dictator, warmonger, supremacist, monopolists, militarist, etc. gets is gain of oppression. He who walks righteously and speaks uprightly despises sordid gains. A righteous man refuses bribes, stops his ears from hearing of bloodshed, and shuts his eyes from seeing evil. 

Gain power

Dan 11:5, “Also the king of the South shall become strong, as well as one of his princes; and he shall gain power over him and have dominion. His dominion shall be a great dominion.”

Note: Have dominion in Hebrew is mashal which means to rule, reign, exercise control over; - it occurs 81 times in the Old Testament.

Psa 62:11,God has spoken once; twice I have heard this: That power belongs to God.

Note: Power in Hebrew is `oz which means might, strength, the idea of Gods power joined with majesty, splendor and glory; - it occurs about 93 times in the Old Testament. Let those who seek power tremble, lest they rob what belongs to God. The word power occurs 276 times in the New International Version.

In summary, what people of the world want are money, power and sex. Almost all things that human beings desire are included in money, power and sex. There is no crime or sin which is not related to the love of money, power and sex. 

Gain time

Dan 2:8, “The king answered and said, “I know for certain that you would gain time, because you see that my decision is firm.”

Note: Gain in Aramaic is zĕban which means to buy; - it occurs only once in the Old Testament. To buy time is to gain time. Of course this is a figure of speech; no one can buy time. There is a Chinese saying: A moment of time is an ounce of gold; an ounce of gold cannot buy a moment of time. At the time of death, the richest man in the world cannot buy a moment of time. It is a matter of time, all evil empires will perish and vanish. It is a matter of time, we will all die. It is wise to do what you must do while there is time. 

Gain much

Job 27:8, “For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he may gain much, if God takes away his life?”

Note: Hypocrite in Hebrew is chaneph which means godless, profane, irreligious, ungodly, impious; - it occurs 13 times in the Old Testament. Do you know any national leader who is godly and not a hypocrite? Woe is the nation whose leaders are hypocrites and ungodly and wicked people.

2.     What is the nature of earthly gain?

Greedy for gain

Pro 1:19, “So are the ways of everyone who is greedy for gain; It takes away the life of its owners.”

Pro 1:19, “So [are] the ways of everyone who is greedy for gain; It takes away the life of its owners.” 

Unjust gain

Isa 56:11, “And the dogs are greedy, they are not satisfied. And they are shepherds who have no understanding; they have all turned to their own way, each one to his unjust gain, to the last one.”

Isa 57:17, “Because of the iniquity of his unjust gain I was angry and struck him; I hid My face and was angry, And he went on turning away, in the way of his heart.”

Mic 4:13, “Arise and thresh, daughter of Zion, for your horn I will make iron and your hoofs I will make bronze, that you may pulverize many peoples, that you may devote to the LORD their unjust gain and their wealth to the Lord of all the earth.”

Note: The dogs of Wall Street, Washington, and Hollywood are greedy for unjust gain. They never have enough. The more they have, the more they want. This is the major reason why the U.S. has the largest deficits and biggest national debt in the world. Greedy for money and power and pleasure is a bottomless pit. 

Evil gain

Hab 2:9, “Woe to him who covets evil gain for his house to put his nest on high, to be delivered from the hand of calamity!”

Note: Evil gain is unjust gain, gain acquired by violence or greed. The rich and powerful put their nest on high, believing they are safe from calamity or disaster. Calamity is the power of evil. The rich and powerful think they are secure. God will send them calamity or disaster.  Since the infamous Opium Wars, Western powers including Britain, France, the United States and others and the evil empire of Japan had robbed and looted China's national treasures and relics at least worth US$10,000 trillion now in European, American, Japanese public and private museums and libraries.  It is time all China's national treasures and historical relics be returned to China without further delay.

Dishonest gain

Exd 18:21, “Furthermore, you shall select out of all the people able men who fear God, men of truth, those who hate dishonest gain; and you shall place these over them as leaders of thousands, of hundreds, of fifties and of tens.”
Note: Dishonest gain is unjust gain. Doctors, hospital owners, drug and insurance companies, labs and medical supplies covet dishonest gain by predatory and fraudulent practices that defraud and overcharge patients blatantly for decades with impunity. The Bible establishes the principle of selecting leaders:

(A). Able men who fear God

(B). Men of truth

(C). Hate dishonest gain

Do you know any American leader who fulfils these requirements? American leaders have been proven liars and killers since the end of World War II.

All Japanese leaders are just the opposite of these requirements; so are the leaders of rat and rogue nations of Philippines, Vietnam, colonial and imperial nations.

Watch out all evil leaders do not fear God whether they able or incompetent, they are men of lies, and they love dishonest gain. 

3.   What people do for gain? 

For dishonest gain, people often do the following:

Subvert the world

Teach false doctrines

Suppose godliness is a means of gain (prosperity gospel)

Put nest on high

Pulverize many peoples

Take bribes

Shed blood

Take interest and profits

Injure others

Oppress others

Divide the land (American imperialist is the divider; the U.S. government in 1971 violated international law and China's sovereignty by illegally giving administrative control of China' s Diaoyu Islands to the unconditionally surrendered war crime nation of Japan. At first Obama said the U.S. took no position of the sovereignty of Diaoyu Islands, now being outwitted by the evil prime minister of Japan Obama says the U.S. will defend Japan against China.)

Eze 22:12-13, “In you they have taken bribes to shed blood; you have taken interest and profits, and you have injured your neighbors for gain by oppression, and you have forgotten Me, declares the Lord GOD. Behold, then, I smite My hand at your dishonest gain which you have acquired and at the bloodshed which is among you.”

Note: Bribe in Hebrew is shachad which means present, gift; - it occurs 23 times in the Old Testament. Bribes have become sophisticated that they include not only cash but expensive gifts and presents such as paintings, antiques, paid trip and luxurious hotels, mansions, private jets, etc. Banks in America have taken interest and profits that make bankers filthy rich at the expense of the people. As an illustration, if you put your money of $15,000 at an American bank like Citibank, you may only earn more or less $0.13 (13 cents) a month, at an annual rate of 0.01%, which is $1.80 a year. If you do not maintain a balance of $15,000, the bank will charge you $20 a month, which is $240 a year. The bank also charges you $5 for each check issued. It is possible that your money in the bank may dwindle to zero and you still owe bank's charges. If you borrow from the bank mortgage interest rate is 1 Year ARM 4.14%, Credit Card is 13.24% - 20.24% APR based on credit worthiness, and 48 month new car loan is 2.9%. Do you see how capitalism exploits and extorts and robs the people? Why do the banks make all the rules that enrich themselves and the government approves them? The rate on the 10-year Treasury is just 1.62 percent. Doctors and hospital owners also oppress people by predatory practices and fraudulent charges. You cannot find any crime or sin which is not connected to the love of money, power and sex. America is a living proof. American leaders have been shedding blood of millions of innocent peoples around the globe since the end of World War II in inciting almost all wars and military conflicts. The sole superpower has been oppressing China since the infamous Opium Wars and more recently since 1949 and it is leading and preparing with the evil empire of Japan, rat and rogue nations of Philippines, Vietnam, etc. to engage in the coming war of aggression against China in order to rob China’s territories and loot China’s resources in the South China Sea and the East China Sea.

Eze 22:27, “Her princes in her midst are like wolves tearing the prey, to shed blood, to destroy people, and to get dishonest gain.”

Note: Don’t you see the Scriptures cited above fitly portray what American leaders and officials are doing all over the world?

Mic 4:13, “Arise and thresh, daughter of Zion, for your horn I will make iron and your hoofs I will make bronze, that you may pulverize many peoples, that you may devote to the LORD their unjust gain and their wealth to the Lord of all the earth.”

Note: Pulverize in Hebrew is daqaq which means to crush, thresh, make dust of, beat or break in pieces, destroy; - it occurs 13 times in the Old Testament. The sole superpower is pulverizing many nations and specifically oppressing China. America is using its military power to destroy nations and gaining wealth by crooked means.

1Ti 6:5, “And constant friction between men of depraved mind and deprived of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain.”

Note: Can you name one conflict after World War II which the United States is not involved or behind it?

Tts 1:11, “Who must be silenced because they are upsetting whole families, teaching things they should not teach for the sake of sordid gain.”

Note: Upsetting in Greek is anatrepō which means to overthrow, overturn, destroy, subvert; - it occurs only twice in the New Testament. There is no nation like America in subverting, destroying and overthrowing nations in the name of democracy, freedom, human right, security, etc.

Dan 11:39, “Thus he shall act against the strongest fortresses with a foreign god, which he shall acknowledge, and advance its glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and divide the land for gain.”

Note: Since the end of World War II, the United States is the power of dividing and destroying. They have the strongest fortresses of missiles and anti-missiles with a foreign god called Supremacy.
Tts 1:11, “Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole households, teaching things which they ought not, for the sake of dishonest gain.”

Note: The mouths of the leaders of the Axis of Evil are full of lies, hatred, poison and violence. 

Eze 22:27, “Her princes within her are like wolves tearing the prey, by shedding blood and destroying lives in order to get dishonest gain.”

Eze 33:31, “They come to you as people come, and sit before you as My people and hear your words, but they do not do them, for they do the lustful desires expressed by their mouth, and their heart goes after their gain.” 

II.    HEAVENLY GAIN 

1.   What do most spiritual people want to gain? 

Gain knowledge

Pro 19:25, “Strike a scoffer and the naive may become shrewd, but reprove one who has understanding and he will gain knowledge.”

Note: Knowledge in Hebrew is da`ath which means discernment, perception, intelligence, understanding, wisdom, the body of facts; - it occurs 93 times in the Old Testament. Knowledge is power; knowledge also makes people arrogant. 

2Cr 4:6, “For God, who said, "Light shall shine out of darkness," is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.” Light stands for truth, and darkness stands for lie. The knowledge of Jesus Christ is the most important of all knowledge. 

Gain understanding

Pro 4:1,“Hear, O sons, the instruction of a father, and give attention

that you may gain understanding.”

Note: Understanding in Hebrew is biynah which means discernment, intelligence, insight; - it occurs 38 times in the Old Testament. People who have understanding know the difference between right and wrong, good and evil, important and unimportant. 

Pro 3:5,“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding.”

Dan 9:23,“At the beginning of your supplications the command was issued, and I have come to tell you, for you are highly esteemed; so give heed to the message and gain understanding of the vision.” 

Gain insight

Neh 8:13,“Then on the second day the heads of fathers' households of all the people, the priests and the Levites were gathered to Ezra the scribe that they might gain insight into the words of the law.”

Isa 41:20,“That they may see and recognize, and consider and gain insight as well, that the hand of the LORD has done this, and the Holy One of Israel has created it.”

Note: Gain insight in Hebrew is sakal which means to be prudent, be circumspect, wisely understand, have insight, have comprehension, act wisely; - it occurs 63 times in the Old Testament.

2Ch 30:22, “Then Hezekiah spoke encouragingly to all the Levites who showed good insight in the things of the LORD. So they ate for the appointed seven days, sacrificing peace offerings and giving thanks to the LORD God of their fathers.”

Note: American leaders are very shrewd in power and money politics, but they do not show good insight in the things of the Lord. 

Gain new strength

Isa 40:31,“Yet those who wait for the LORD will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary.”

Isa 41:1, “Coastlands, listen to Me in silence, and let the peoples gain new strength; let them come forward, then let them speak; let us come together for judgment.”

Note: Strength in Hebrew is koach which means power, might, force, ability; - it occurs 126 times in the Old Testament. O Lord, let me gain new strength that I will mount up with wings like eagles, run and not get tired, and walk and not become weary for the same of your Kingdom.

Eph 6:10, “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might.”

Note: If you have the strength of God’s might, you are strong in the Lord. 

Gain Christ

Phl 3:7-8,“But whatever things were gain to me, those things I have counted as loss for the sake of Christ. More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ.”

Note: Gain in Greek is kerdos which means advantage, profit, winning; - it occurs only 3 times in the New Testament. Loss in Greek is zēmia which means damage, disadvantage, deprivation; - it occurs 4 times in the New Testament. Rubbish in Greek is skybalon which means any refuse, as the excrement of animals, offscourings, dregs, worthless and detestable things; - it occurs only once in the New Testament. Christ is supreme; in comparison to Christ everthing is rubbish or garbage. To gain Christ, money, power and sex would not mean anything to you. 

Gain the glory

2Th 2:14, “It was for this He called you through our Gospel, that you may gain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Note: Glory in Greek is doxa which means splendor, brightness, praise, honor, magnificence, excellence, preeminence, dignity, grace, majesty in the sense of the absolute perfection of the deity, the kingly majesty of the Messiah; - it occurs 168 times in the New Testament. Glory and power belong to God. Jesus Christ is coming in power and glory. Jesus Christ will reign with the saints for eternity in glory and power. For every suffering saint, this is a message of God:

Rom 8:18, “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
If we suffer for Christ, we will glorify with Him.
 

2.   What do spiritual people do to gain? 

Despise the gain of oppressions

Isa 33:15, “He who walks righteously and speaks uprightly, He who despises the gain of oppressions, Who gestures with his hands, refusing bribes, Who stops his ears from hearing of bloodshed, And shuts his eyes from seeing evil.”

Note: Despise in Hebrew is ma'ac which means to reject, refuse, abhor, become loathsome, hold contempt - it occurs 76 times in the Old Testament.

Mat 6:24, “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth.” 

Prosperity gospel preachers and followers of prosperity gospel act and believe they can serve God and wealth.

Count as loss for Christ

Phl 3:7, “But whatever things were gain to me, those things I have counted as loss for the sake of Christ.”

Note: To count in Greek is hēgeomai which means to consider, deem, account, think; - it occurs 28 times in the New Testament. To count you need a value system. You count it wrong because your value system is wrong. For example, if you count a stone as diamond because you do not know what a diamond is. Do not cast your pearls before swine because swine will trample on pearls. To swine pearl is nothing. Christ is more valuable than pearl. Christ is supreme, above everything and everybody. 

Suffer the loss of all things

Phl 3:8, “More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ.”

Note: Suffer loss in Greek is zēmioō which means to sustain damage, to receive injury, affect with damage; - it occurs 6 times in the New Testament. Contrary to the prosperity gospel, Christians must suffer loss for Jesus’sake.

Luk 24:26, “Was it not necessary for the Christ to suffer these things and to enter into His glory?”

Note: Jesus Christ set an example for Christians, the Lord not only suffered for our sins and sacrificed Him on the cross on our behalf.

Rom 8:17, “And if children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him.”

Note: The path to glory is through suffering. If we suffer with Christ, we will also be glorified with Him. 

Dislike sordid gain

Tts 1:7, “For the overseer must be above reproach as God's steward, not self-willed, not quick-tempered, not addicted to wine, not pugnacious, not fond of sordid gain.”

Note: No true servant of Christ is fond of sordid gain. That is why preachers of prosperity gospel fall and fail.

Shepherd the flock of God

1Pe 5:2,“Shepherd the flock of God among you, exercising oversight not under compulsion, but voluntarily, according to the will of God; and not for sordid gain, but with eagerness.”

Note: Shepherd in Greek is poimainō which means to feed, to tend a flock, keep sheep, furnish pasture for food, supply the requisites for the soul's need; - it occurs 11 times in the New Testament. It is the job of a pastor or preacher to shepherd the flock of God, not to exploit or abuse the members of the church. False preachers make members of the church their disciples. 

In conclusion, the way of gain or loss is put in front of you. Consider what is truly gain, and what is truly loss. Do not mistake a loss for gain, and do not confuse a gain for loss. To seek the material, monetary and earthly things are losses. To seek the spiritual and heavenly is eternal gain. Your soul is more valuable than the whole world. Come to Jesus Christ now so that your soul can be saved and your sins forgiven. 

Would you receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior now?

To receive Jesus Christ is to receive eternal life.
