The legs of the lame are not equal: so is a parable in the mouth of fools.
The great God that formed all things both rewardeth the fool, and rewardeth transgressors.
The Merriam Webster online dictionary offers this definition of parable.
“: a usually short fictitious story that illustrates a moral attitude or a religious principle
also : something (such as a news story or a series of real events) likened to a parable in providing an instructive example or lesson”
Any story that has been preserved for instructive purposes can be called a parable. The story of Joseph, as ruler of Egypt, saving his family from starvation is one such story. Those who believe that this story is instructive, tend to believe that it teaches that God will miraculously rescue us after all hope is lost, but would it not be foolish to presume this, when it is easily shown that our circumstance more closely resembles that of Egypt than that of Israel.
It is becoming increasingly clear that crises are engineered and are used for the purposes of gaining control over our lives. Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman, World Economic Forum, has said, "The pandemic represents a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world" . Yuval Noah Harari has stated openly that advancing technologies will lead to the “creation of the global useless class” and that “We humans should get used to the idea that we are no longer mysterious souls, We are hackable animals”
One may wonder why the words of people, who themselves have no positions of authority, are worthy of consideration, but their influence is increasingly obvious. Politicians, government officials, business leaders, media, and celebrities attend their conferences, and they promote their goals.
Egyptians, in despair, near the end of a famine sold all of their properties then sold themselves into slavery.
And there was no bread in all the land; for the famine was very sore, so that the land of Egypt and all the land of Canaan fainted by reason of the famine.
And Joseph gathered up all the money that was found in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, for the corn which they bought: and Joseph brought the money into Pharaoh's house.
And when money failed in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, all the Egyptians came unto Joseph, and said, Give us bread: for why should we die in thy presence? for the money faileth.
And Joseph said, Give your cattle; and I will give you for your cattle, if money fail.
And they brought their cattle unto Joseph: and Joseph gave them bread in exchange for horses, and for the flocks, and for the cattle of the herds, and for the asses: and he fed them with bread for all their cattle for that year.
When that year was ended, they came unto him the second year, and said unto him, We will not hide it from my lord, how that our money is spent; my lord also hath our herds of cattle; there is not ought left in the sight of my lord, but our bodies, and our lands:
Wherefore shall we die before thine eyes, both we and our land? buy us and our land for bread, and we and our land will be servants unto Pharaoh: and give us seed, that we may live, and not die, that the land be not desolate.
And Joseph bought all the land of Egypt for Pharaoh; for the Egyptians sold every man his field, because the famine prevailed over them: so the land became Pharaoh's.
And as for the people, he removed them to cities from one end of the borders of Egypt even to the other end thereof.
Only the land of the priests bought he not; for the priests had a portion assigned them of Pharaoh, and did eat their portion which Pharaoh gave them: wherefore they sold not their lands.
Then Joseph said unto the people, Behold, I have bought you this day and your land for Pharaoh: lo, here is seed for you, and ye shall sow the land.
And it shall come to pass in the increase, that ye shall give the fifth part unto Pharaoh, and four parts shall be your own, for seed of the field, and for your food, and for them of your households, and for food for your little ones.
And they said, Thou hast saved our lives: let us find grace in the sight of my lord, and we will be Pharaoh's servants.
Egyptians fell into despair due to a circumstance beyond their own control, but we have chosen to ignore, or to just watch like stupid animals, while all of our dignity and any hope to recover is being destroyed by our self appointed rulers. If it is true that “The great God that formed all things both rewardeth the fool, and rewardeth transgressors” can we blame Yuval Noah Harari and his ilk, for claiming these rewards, while we stand idly by and wait to be rescued?
While reviewing the context of the verses that I had planned to feature in this writing, I was reminded of another verse that always intrigued me. One that I had never understood. “The slothful man saith, There is a lion in the way; a lion is in the streets.” Fear is an excuse for inaction. We hope that someone else will take the risk. We want to be led by someone who can guarantee a good result and thereby, we choose to prefer the guidance of liars, instead of being led, in good conscience, by our own discernment.
One thing that is certain however is that those who are now leading the world have published their intentions. Very few people would approve of these goals if they were made fully aware of them. If all people strive to be informed, speak honestly and openly, and begin to act in good conscience, a better future than the one promoted by current leaders will emerge. Failing to act condemns not only ourselves but also our children.
No one, upon seeing the brake lights of the car ahead suddenly and unexpectedly flash red, closes their eyes, hoping for a good outcome.
