The Truth of God and Our Lord Jesus Christ

For as it was not possible that the man who had once for all been conquered, and who had been destroyed through disobedience, could reform himself, and obtain the prize of victory; and as it was also impossible that he could attain to salvation who had fallen under the power of sin,-the Son effected both these things, being the Word of God, descending from the Father, becoming incarnate, stooping low, even to death, and consummating the arranged plan of our salvation, upon whom [Paul], exhorting us unhesitatingly to believe, again says, "Who shall ascend into heaven? that is, to bring down Christ; or who shall descend into the deep? that is, to liberate Christ again from the dead." Then he continues, "If thou shall confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shall be saved." And he renders the reason why the Son of God did these things, saying, "For to this end Christ both lived, and died, and revived, that He might rule over the living and the dead." And again, writing to the Corinthians, he declares, "But we preach Christ Jesus crucified; "and adds, "The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? " - St. Irenaeus, Against Heresies, Book III, Chapter XVIII, Section 2.

The Crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ, Mary and John and the women at the foot of the Cross

Matthew 27:45 Now from the sixth hour, there was darkness over all the earth, until the ninth hour.

Origen tell us this darkness was only in Palestine, and the neighbouring countries: for as to the words, over the whole earth, or over the whole land, we find one kingdom or empire, by a common way of speaking, called the whole earth, or the whole world. As to the cause of the obscuration of the sun; and secondly, as to the extent of its darkness. Origen tells us that the darkness was partial, and confined to Judea and the neighbouring countries, as the darkness of Egypt was only perceived in that country, and not in Gessen, where the children of Israel were. Saint Jerome tells us that the obscurity was caused by the rays of the sun being suddenly withdrawn by divine power, as was the case in Egypt. The darkness in Egypt during the Passover of Moses was due to God's protection withdrawn from that land at that time. The darkness when Christ was Crucified for us is the judgement of God upon His Son Jesus Christ, in our place. For Jesus Christ knew NO sin. He never sinned, nor could He ever.

The meaning of the Pasch of Christians.

The Book of Wisdom, Chapter 17, describes the devils and demons thrown back upon the Egyptians when the Israelites under Moses were brought out of Egypt by God for God’s purposes (to prepare a place for the Crucifixion of Our Lord for the Redemption of the whole world of those who are saved). In the same way the same false gods and goddesses that the Egyptians served and which in so doing were the reason the Egyptians sacrificed their sons and daughters to the devils and demons behind the false gods/goddesses were the spirits that killed the Egyptian children that perished when the Israelites were brought out of Egypt. God does not murder children, period. The angel of death which destroyed in Egypt was one of the fallen spirits. God did not cause any of the fallen spirits to hurt anyone. God allowed the fallen spirits to do what it is their nature do to when He brought the Israelites out of the gates of hell which was Egypt. The children below the age of reason that died went to be with God for eternity, they will be resurrected with the just at the Second Coming of Christ. This principle of God allowing the innocent to be afflicted along with guilty finds its ultimate fulfillment in Christ’s singular and only salvific Kenosis. Jesus Christ committed no sin, not ever nor could He, and was and is and only could be utterly and absolutely and completely innocent of any and all wrongdoing and sin by His very nature as the Holy and True God. The guiltless sacrificed by His own will for the guilty. Even when the innocent are afflicted by the actions and evils instigated by the fallen spirits in the world, the innocent are not possessed by those fallen spirits. The principle of all being afflicted by the evil set loose upon the world for its unrepentant sin will occur when the universal plagues are let loose upon the world. See Apocalypse 16

The principle of our always, for our part, protecting children is given us by Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 18

1 At *that hour the disciples came to Jesus, saying: Who, thinkest thou, is the greater in the kingdom of heaven?

2 *And Jesus calling unto him a little child, set him in the midst of them,

3 And said: Amen I say unto you, *unless you be converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, he is the greater in the kingdom of heaven.

5 And he that shall receive one such little child in my name, receiveth me.

10 Take heed that you despise not one of these little ones: for I say to you, *that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.

The principle of our ONLY worshipping the True God, the Father and the Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit is given first in the historical truth of the Garden of Eden when Christ, who is the Tree of Life commands the first man and his wife, Adam and Eve to not have anything to do with the tree of the knowledge of good and evil which is Satan, the first fallen angel, nor with any of the fallen angels with Satan. Assisi of Babylon/Vatican/Rome is absolute and complete violation of that principle and is the Great Apostasy in full blown Satanic evil. Have nothing to do with the Vatican or suffer its eternal damnation in hell with it. The devil and demon worshipping pagans and the perfidious deicidal Jews are not ever any part of the Salvific action of Christ upon Golgotha/Calvary. Individual pagans and Jews if they repent of their not confessing Jesus Christ as the Immortal Son of God become flesh for our sake and sacrificed for our salvation and who confess publicly their sin of devil and demon worshipping and perfidy and deicide and who beg the Lord of all, the Lord God, the Father and the Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit for forgiveness of their horrid and abominable sins, can and will be forgiven if they do so now in this life and will enter into the only path of salvation there is as dictated by God Himself. The Church, all the faithful – there is no other meaning acceptable to God for the word Church, is commanded by God to not have anything to do with the Apostasy.

Book of Wisdom, Chapter 17

1 For thy judgments, O Lord, are great, and thy words cannot be expressed: therefore undisciplined souls have erred.

2 For while the wicked thought to be able to have dominion over the holy nation, they themselves being fettered with the bonds of darkness, and a long night, shut up in their houses, lay there exiled from the eternal providence.

3 And while they thought to lie hid in their obscure sins, they were scattered under a dark veil of forgetfulness, being horribly afraid and troubled with exceeding great astonishment.

4 For neither did the den that held them, keep them from fear: for noises coming down troubled them, and sad visions appearing to them, affrighted them.

5 And no power of fire could give them light, neither could the bright flames of the stars enlighten that horrible night.

6 But there appeared to them a sudden fire, very dreadful: and being struck with the fear of that face, which was not seen, they thought the things which they saw to be worse:

7 And the delusions of their magic art were put down, and their boasting of wisdom was reproachfully rebuked.

8 For they who promised to drive away fears and troubles from a sick soul, were sick themselves of a fear worthy to be laughed at.

9 For though no terrible thing disturbed them: yet being scared with the passing by of beasts, and hissing of serpents, they died for fear: and denying that they saw the air, which could by no means be avoided.

10 For whereas wickedness is fearful, it beareth witness of its condemnation: for a troubled conscience always forecasteth grievous things.

11 For fear is nothing else but a yielding up of the succours from thought.

12 And while there is less expectation from within, the greater doth it count the ignorance of that cause which bringeth the torment.

13 But they that during that night, in which nothing could be done, and which came upon them from the lowest and deepest hell, slept the same sleep.

14 Were sometimes molested with the fear of monsters, sometimes fainted away, their soul failing them: for a sudden and unlooked for fear was come upon them.

15 Moreover if any of them had fallen down, he was kept shut up in prison without irons.

16 For if any one were a husbandman, or a shepherd, or a labourer in the field, and was suddenly overtaken, he endured a necessity from which he could not fly.

17 For they were all bound together with one chain of darkness. Whether it were a whistling wind, or the melodious voice of birds, among the spreading branches of trees, or a fall of water running down with violence,

18 Or the mighty noise of stones tumbling down, or the running that could not be seen of beasts playing together, or the roaring voice of wild beasts, or a rebounding echo from the highest mountains: these things made them to swoon for fear.

19 For the whole world was enlightened with a clear light, and none were hindered in their labours.

20 But over them only was spread a heavy night, an image of that darkness which was to come upon them. But they were to themselves more grievous than the darkness.

Austria: Women in Forced Labour?

Austria: Women in Forced Labour?

Will Forced Labor of Women at Labor Offices Stop?

Vienna – Kawther Salam – March 8 2010, International Women’s Day.

March 8 is a major day of global celebration for the economic, political and social achievements of women, but also it is a day to remind the governments which have enacted more laws that violate women’s rights, that they must review these laws, which for example allow the labor offices to force these women into contracts where the labor of women is sold cheaply, 690 euro for a 45 hour week, far under the level of poverty. These “contracts” and the how these women (and men) are bullied into them correspond to the definition of forced labor set forth in the Forced Labour Convention of 1930, ratified by Austria on 07.06.1960. Quote:

Unemployed waiting before a work office in Vienna, 5 before 8 in the morning, 6 degrees under zero. The work office employees were inside drinking coffee.

For the purposes of this Convention the term “forced or compulsory labour” shall mean all work or service which is exacted from any person under the menace of any penalty and for which the said person has not offered himself voluntarily. Click here to read the law.

The convention states some explicit exceptions of this definition, such as military service and community services in certain qualified cases, but the kind of activity to which these people are forced have nothing to do with these stated exceptions.

In Vienna, unemployed women (and also men) are bullied by the labor office into “contracts” with companies which in turn rent them out to anybody needing a cheap worker. It is not clear if the bad deal of these women forced into virtual slavery has to do with labor laws which have been passed by the governments of the European Union in the wake of the economic crisis that swept global markets and led to the continuing collapse in the domestic and international economy, or if has to do with changing the statistical data about unemployment in Austria in order to make them look more favorable to the government. In any case, if these assumptions are right or wrong, the Austrian laws forbid forced labour. The Austrian penal code deals with slavery, forced labour and similar crimes in sections 104 to 106 in the chapter about “Human Trafficking”.

On the basis of the Austrian laws, but also taking in account the expectations of citizens, it is very important to raise this issue at the International Women’s Day, regardless of whether raising this issue will be satisfactory or unsatisfactory to the concerned authorities. We insist on raising the women issue in several successive reports, until it reaches the ears of the authorities, who will hopefully introduce changes and solutions in the best interest of the people.

Based on what I have been told and personally seen, I must ask if the labor offices have been turned into business projects which effectively sell the labour of women to other companies, and very cheap.

  • Is the labour office forcing women back under the reign of feudal lords and slavers?Are the psychological pressure and the overt threats against women brought into such relations, such as the threat to terminate unemployment or welfare benefits, as done by the employees at the labor office and these companies every day against women, in line with Austrian laws and the aspirations of a democratic society?
  • Can it be “legal” to force an elderly lady who obviously is incapable of work due to constant shaking of all her body into “work” for one of such companies?
  • How can one qualify the threat to terminate benefits because a woman announces a visit to the doctor?
  • Are the methods of psychological pressure and threatening women to cut their allowance of subsidy implied by labor workers against women in accordance with the laws of Austria? Which are the provisions of Austrian law on the prevention of transfer of women and citizens into forced labour relations?

In light of the data available to me, the labor office force threatens women with withholding benefits if they dare to protest against being bullied into “labor” relations in certain companies under the pretext helping them to look for work – these “measures” are always represented as “courses” where people are supposed to learn how to find work, as I know from many conversations. The labour office usually rejects to the wishes of women to choose a profession or line of work which they think suits them best, and instead they are “made” saleswomen, nail polishers and hairdressers, to be rented out.

I was greatly disappointed when I visited one such company which runs a program to process women over 50 sent to them by the labour office. One of the women I saw there was a woman over 60, all her body was trembling, she had to cough whenever she moved. I asked an “instructor” what kind of work they would find for this woman. I also asked her for her opinion about selling women in the work market?

This sick woman was a client of the social office, as, according to the new laws, the social office now submits their clients to the work office to “help them look for work”, and the labour and welfare offices work together. In most countries of the world, even the undeveloped countries, there is a separation between the employment (labor) offices and the offices of social affairs, for very obvious reasons, but in Austria, and apparently the EU the situation is different. In the EU the social cases, the sick people and the elderly are under threat to have their benefits withheld if they do not do whatever the labour offices want from them.

During a visit to another company which holds such “courses”, I saw some of the bums usually standing around at Karlsplatz, a meeting place for the bums and drug addicts of the city, clearly not labour office clients. I wonder what kind of work these people will able do, but the presence of people who are obviously unable to work hints at another problem which I have been told in my conversations, but which I can not confirm: corruption and collusion between these companies and government officials to milk the social and employment welfare system.

In this company the “clients” are allocated to do small work according to the whims of the company. At the beginning of the interview, the “instructor” asks the client which work they would like to do? After that, the client is told that they can’t offer them this kind of work, and then pressure and bullying begins, and continues until the “client” chooses whatever work they are offered, usually selling, cleaning, menial office work and other similar occupations. The “instructor” never forgets to remind the attendants that they will file a negative report about them if she or he does not do whatever they are told, “chooses” whatever they are “offered”. People are “asked” to sign a paper, under threat of a negative report or course.

According to what I was told, people are pooled for a month after signing their “agreement” with the company, and they are “trained” during this time to do menial work. After this, the company which runs the program starts renting them out. The only obvious “benefit” to the government is that people who are in such programs are not considered as unemployed, but are still financed by the office of labour. This changes (falsifies ?) the statistics significantly. As of February 2010 there were about 400.000 people officially registered as unemployed in Austria, and about 82.000 of these persons were in such programs. It appears that welfare clients, people who are traditionally classified as unemployable for various reasons, are being included in such programs with the intension of “bettering” the long-term unemployment statistics.

For the people who are included in such programs, their personal situation is such that they are forced for up to 8 months into a pseudo-labour relation where they are pooled with others for 45 hours per week at an income far under poverty level, which is set at about 950 Euros for a working week of 38,5 hours in Austria. I could not understand what economic sense it makes to the government to falsify its unemployment statistics by forcing people into such programs, as the full costs for these women and men are still being born by the government. According to my information, people in such programs are kept for the first 30 days as “course participants”, and are thereafter run as employed in the employment statistics, while still being paid in full from the unemployment or social money of the government. If a woman in such a pool completes the 8 months without having been rented out, she will automatically return to labour office, probably only to be included in the next pooling program.

If a woman included in such a program can be rented out, it probably means that they will be paid at under market prices, what gives no incentive to the “renter” to keep her in his employ beyond the end of the pooling program, what also means that the woman will also find her way to the labour office. Based on the observation that the participants forced into such pooling programs are actually paid by the government, the official statistic of only 400.000 unemployed can be assumed to be far lower than the real number of people unemployed in this country, because this is a category of people who are neither in “courses” nor “unemployed” proper.

For the companies running these programs, the benefit seems obvious. According to what I was told, they get to cut for themselves the difference between 690 Euros (what is paid to the clients) and about 960 Euros, and it is possible that they are paid a sum on top of that. I understand that in Austria such pooling and pseudo-capacitation programs are run by a few big companies, what assures them handsome profits based solely on the number of people unemployed. A very simple calculation would indicate that running such a pooling program with 1.000 participants can leave net profits of about 50.000 Euros per month.

An important factor in the revenue stream of such companies, which are widely called “parasites” (“Schmarotzerfirmen”) by Austrians, seems to be corruption. Even without leveling the accusation of activities which would qualify legally as corrupt, their activity is questionable at best as the deteriorating labour statistics demonstrate. Still, a case which became widely known in the Austrian corporate media is the now-defunct company “Venezia”, which was caught in a scandal which implicated ministerial employees in transferring funds to this company for non-existent invoices.

I was told in personal conversations that in the case of courses of German for foreigners (all foreigners must by law attend German courses in Austria), most legitimate language institutes have no chance of getting contracts from the government, as these contracts are given to a few big companies, and this has to do with what I understood to be a “60:40″ arrangement, meaning a 40% kickback. I understood from the person who told me this that it was general knowledge among institutes offering language courses. I am not in a position to confirm this information.

Some questions are:

  • Are women (and men) led into forced labor in companies which work for the labour office?
  • Which is the relationship between the labor office and these companies beyond the formal contract?
  • Who are the owners of those companies?
  • Are they from circles closes to politicians, political parties in power and employees in the labor offices and ministries?
  • Have any of these companies achieved positive results towards ending the problem of unemployment?
  • Does the labor office use these companies to falsify the statistical data about unemployment, or can this charge be easily refuted with verifiable information?
  • How exactly would such a falsification of statistics happen if it was true?
  • Is the falsification of unemployment statistics a violation of any law?
  • Why has the Austrian corporate media avoided these issues until now, instead opted for running a show which suggests that everything is well?

The answers for these questions will be followed in a future article.

I was told by acquaintances that I should abstain from writing this report as it would bring nothing at best, and that it could even bring me troubles. I think that it is important to report on these issues because women (and men) should not be treated like garbage in a country which presents itself as a civilized, democratic country, because always women are those who suffer the most from deteriorated social conditions, because I believe that not only citizens but also the government should act according to the law, anywhere. I find that this is an issue so big and important that the mass media, which have far more resources than I, should have a deep and abiding interest in bringing some clarity into this issue, which is not only about women rights, but also about human rights and democracy.
