Jesus said, “So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen (Matt. 20:16).
“The last”, in our society, are thought to be the homeless, the destitute, the starving. In our economically depressed times, there are multitudes who fit this description. Millions have lost their homes, their jobs, their very lives, to a band of despotic marauders, who go by the names of Representative So-and-So, or Senator Such-and-Such. Of course, these so-called representatives are mostly all wealthy, most born with the proverbial silver spoon dangling from their gluttonous mouths. When they get to Washington, they become even richer and more gluttonous! How can this be? The normal salary for rank-and-file members of the House and Senate is $174,000. That’s a lot of money, but it doesn’t usually result in millions upon millions in wealth! Of course, there is always the possibility of insider trading. This is one example of what Jesus meant by “the first.”
“The first” also alludes to the corruption in the banking and investment sector. Billions of dollars is never enough for these avaricious thugs. They want everything you own! They want it all, and, apparently, they want it now. They would like nothing better than to see us all bankrupt. Their ultimate goal is to rid the earth of inferiors like us. But, to the dismay of these mobsters, the sleeping giant has been awakened!
The first shall be last. The Occupy movement is the beginning of the transformation. In recent days, a coordinated effort among several American cities has shown that the power elites are scared. They’re confused. They don’t know what to do with occupiers. The only strategy they understand is violence, so they resort to tear-gassings and pepper sprayings, and even beatings, to try and dissuade the faithful. But this is not working. In their infantile intellects, they believe that if enough muscle is thrown at the occupiers, they will give up and go home (if they have one to go to). That’s all their pea-brains can understand! You cannot quench the fire of an idea with police brutality. The first shall be last.
The last will become first, not because of a violent revolution, but because of peaceful, non-violent persuasion of the minds of millions of Americans, who are tired of a corrupt government, sham elections, a greedy and evil banking system, and mendacious media. The secrets are out, largely because of the Internet. The lies have been, and are continuing to be, uncovered. The evil is being rooted out. The last shall be first!
