But, now our series of Articles makes a bit of a change. Rather than showing that Interstellar Travel will happen, we now assume it as a given, and begin asking ourselves the question: WHAT KIND OF IMPACT WILL IT HAVE ON OUR SOCIETY?
As to Future Economics, I think the Handwriting is clearly on the Wall! We are about to enter an Era of extreme automation and robotics. Consequently, our concepts of work and economic (and monetary) value will have to adapt to the Coming Leisure Revolution (as Mankind becomes liberated from the druggery of production). However, rather than running about in FEAR, as some of the business status quo seem to be doing (perhaps, even attempting to suppress or delay the Future), we need to set about in logical fashion, putting ourselves in line to receive God's Gifts and Blessings as HE has Planned them for us (and our posterity) for the past several Millenium!
OK, then, just what will be the IMPACT of the Interstellar Movement on Future Economics? Will we have massive economic collapse and radical take-overs? (i.e. socialist revolutions?) Is Communism really over, or is it only regerminating to emerge in KoReY, again? (Hey, its my MONEY--isn't that cause to PANIC!)
Hold on! Let's not lose our heads. Economic transitions have occured before. And, they will come again, too. So, if you just use your head and consider what the changes will be, then you will be able to make the transition, with a minimal loss (and perhaps, even some profits, if you are quick thinking enough). So, lets just turn the pages of history back a bit, to see what has occured before, and thus what is likely to happen in the Future Economy.
Therefore, this seems most likely to occur, once again. At the moment, there is NO Interstellar Trade (though perhaps smuggling?). But, once Interstellar Travel becomes available, the next logical step is for a BOOM in Interstellar Commerce. And a TRADE that will help us find many items that we have not sought nor even thought of, but once they are found, will greatly enhance the standard of living for those at home, on the Earth (while it remains). So, those who FEAR Interstellar Travel had better rethink their economic strategies. For, whoever gets into that Interstellar Trade (and gets in early) is sure to make fantastic profits, much in the same way that the discoverors of new trade routes did in the Age of Discovery (above)!
Moreover, with the looming collapse of the Planet Earth, it is a much better economic strategy to invest your money in off world enterprizes and ventures. For, these will most likely survive the coming destruction of the Planet (from its developing Nova). Consequently, those who have the most share of their investments in Space will stand to lose the least over the collapse of Earth. (Am I hearing calculators running out there? I should, for the dollar signs will be there, if you put your money where it will help God's Plan and Programs for the Stars!)
But, with the Age of Discovery came more of a shift to letting machines do the work. And, first there was Waterpower to spin the machines. And then steam, followed by the railway explosion, with a close chaser of electricity. Thus, here, once again, we expect the current trend of automation, computers, and robotics to take off in a manner we have not dreamed of! Thus, various machines appear most likely to come and take over almost every aspect of the production and even much of the distribution of the items we want and seek. The Industrial Revolution will be replaced by the Future Automation Revolution.
And, this Future Automation Revolution will FREE the common man from the druggeries of work, like our fore-fathers could never dream of (not in their wildest fantasies)! Thus, those who participate in the Programs of KoReY and the Interstellar Efforts, will enter into an Era of Rest and Coming Lisure, such as we have never imagined. For, Our Future Automated Society will take over the majority of our work, giving us vast amounts of leisure time.
However, KoReY rejects this short sightedness! In the first place, as we are going to be developing frontier colonies in Space, we are going to NEED MASSES of People (not less people)! And, the pro-population policy of Ours is supported by the Holy Scriptures, which state:
Furthermore, in God's eyes, the value of a person is NOT in his economic ability to produce. Rather it is in the value of his own soul! (More on this, below, as we go!)
Rather, what we see is a kind of Mixed Economy or Tri-Con Economy. For, about 1/3 of the economy needs to be in the hands of the government, to provide price floors and buy up surplus comodities--as well as manage its military industrial complex. (And also to do what it can to redistribute the Blessing of God to the poor, to ensure that they at least have some reasonable chance to get their daily needs met!) And about 1/3 needs to be in the hands of capitalists and innovators, that their economic skills can be put to good use--but balanced by governemnt to limit economic crime and unfair economic practices (and unfair financial advantages). And, about another 1/3 needs to be shared jointly in stock companies or mutual fund groups, so that the middle class can unite and form collectives that will give the other two branches proper competition (and bring balance to the Future Economy).
Consequently, KoReY will seek to provide a certain amount of Socialism, to be sure that Our People are reasonably well taken care of. For, WE ARE OUR BROTHER'S KEEPER! (It is the Godly, caring thing to do!) For, not all people are able to work. Nor, will there be tons of jobs in the Automation Revolution. But, the souls of people are valuable to God anyway. And, thus, they are valuable to US in KoReY, as well! And we need a certain level of Socialism to provide for them.
However, that observance of REST is about to take a radical change! For, with the Automation Revolution, will come a form of REST that will last throughout the 6 Work Days. The Apostle Paul wrestled with this concept, it being hard for him to even grasp and present. But, he set forth this passage most clearly on it:
The Era of Rest does not mean that there will be NO work at all. Rather, that the druggeries of common labor and the struggle for existence will be replaced by the Future Automation Revolution. (Basically, that the Curse of Adam's Fall will be lifted from the earth or ground so that his toil will no longer be torment.) This will free Mankind to pursue LEISURE and more noble tasks, such as music, the arts, science, exploration and invention--the more intellectual and artistic (creative) kinds of activites. Thus, education will be most valuable and highly sought in the Future. And the perpetual student will be more the norm than the oddity (or freak).
Consequently, though our work will be lighter (and hopefully more rewarding), there will still be a Sabbath--a time to cease from your daily tasks and pursue God.
And, even more for US of KoReY, this Era of Rest will release a veritable army of missionaries, with the time to go and reach the Lost all over the Universe! Which, in turn, helps to explain another mystery.
Now in case you think I am just talking Greek (and haven't heard of this issue), many schollars of Bible Prophecy note that God seems to do things in dual-millenium. That is, it was approximately 2,000 years from Adam's Fall to Abraham's Call. And then about 2,000 years from Abraham to the Atonement of the Cross. Consequently, it is now about 2000 years since the Cross, so it is TIME for a new Era. And the Era favored by theologians is, of course, the Second Coming of Christ (with its Millenial Reign) and so called Rapture.
But, is there a different Era? Well, now you know! It is the Era Of Rest--the Time of the Future Automated Society.
Moreover, this fits better with God's Creation Week. In six days HE made the whole Universe, and everything in it. And, on the seventh day, HE rested. Consequently, we now have a WEEK of Man's work (6,000 years), so what we need is a DAY (1,000 years) of Man's Rest. Hence, the Era Of Rest fits better with God's Time Table (than the Second Coming NOW theory).
In addition, the Era Of Rest fits better with current Messianic Theology, for the churches tend to deny that there can be a Messianic (Jewish-Christian) Revival, untill the Second Coming of Christ. Which in turn is basically the denial of the current facts of the spreading Messianic Movement today! However, Bible Prophecy shows that the Messianic Movement is right on time--and will only get bigger in the years to come. For it is clearly written:
(Now, for more information on the Messianic (Jewish-Christian) RETURN, see Our Articles on EMUSPATEL.)
Consequently, it (the Era of Rest) is a Gift only offered to Believers, those of the Faithful (Jews, Christians, and Muslims)--who hold to the One True God (monotheism).
Now, for sure, there will be non-believers and Pagans who will attempt to copy this Rest, but they will not receive it nor enjoy it to the dimensions that God's People will. For, HE has sworn in HIS wrath that they shall not enter it! Therefore, it seems most likely that the masses of them will be destroyed when the Planet Earth perishes (in the coming Nova).
Thus, we highly recommend Stellar Migration to ALL of God's People. This will not only help fuel the Great Stellar Reformation, but it will also help ensure that they enter into that Era of Rest (and protect them and their descendants from the wrath of God and the coming destruction of the Planet Earth).
