Word for 2012: God’s New Deal for the USA
God’s New Deal
God is going to empower companies to be the Real (New) Deal.
The New Deal was a series of economic programs implemented in the United States between 1933 and 1936. They were passed by the U.S. Congress during the first term of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The programs were Roosevelt’s responses to the Great Depression, and focused on what historians call the “3 Rs”: Relief, Recovery, and Reform. That is, Relief for the unemployed and poor; Recovery of the economy to normal levels; and Reform of the financial system to prevent a repeat depression. The New Deal produced a political realignment, making the Democratic Party the majority (as well as the party which held the White House for seven out of nine Presidential terms from 1933 to 1969), with its base in liberal ideas, big city machines, and newly empowered labor unions, ethnic minorities, and the white South.
President Obama is trying to revive the “New Deal” rhetoric and compares himself to FDR.
God is anointing some companies to be the real deal with real relief, real recovery and real reform. His New Deal will empower companies to be the social transformers that the following Top 10 New-Deal-Created Agencies were trying to be:
1. CCC – Civilian Conservation Corps
The Civilian Conservation Corps was created in 1933 by Franklin D. Roosevelt to combat unemployment. This work relief program had the desired effect and provided jobs for many Americans during the Great Depression. The CCC was responsible for building many public works and created structures and trails in parks across the nation.
2. The Civil Works Administration
The Civil Works Administration was created in 1933 to create jobs for the unemployed. Its focus on high paying jobs in the construction arena resulted in a much greater expense to the federal government than originally anticipated. The CWA ended in 1934 in large part due to opposition to its cost.
3. FHA – Federal Housing Administration
The Federal Housing Administration was a government agency created to combat the housing crisis of the Great Depression. The large number of unemployed workers combined with the banking crisis created a situation in which banks recalled loans. The FHA was designed to regulate mortgages and housing conditions.
4. FSA – Federal Security Agency
The Federal Security Agency established in 1939 had the responsibility for several important government entities. Until it was abolished in 1953, it administered social security, federal education funding, and food and drug safety.
5. HOLC – Home Owner’s Loan Corporation
The Home Owner’s Loan Corporation was created in 1933 to assist in the refinancing of homes. The housing crisis created a great many foreclosures, and Franklin Roosevelt hoped this new agency would stem the tide. In fact, between 1933 and 1935 one million people received long term loans through the agency that saved their homes from foreclosure.
6. NRA – National Recovery Act
The National Recovery Act was designed to bring the interests of working class Americans and business together. Through hearings and government intervention the hope was to balance the needs of all involved in the economy. However, the NRA was declared unconstitutional in the landmark Supreme Court case Schechter Poultry Corp. v. US. The Supreme Court ruled that the NRA violated the separation of powers.
7. PWA – Public Works Administration
The Public Works Administration was a program created to provide economic stimulus and jobs during the Great Depression. The PWA was designed to create public works and continued until the US ramped up wartime production for World War II. It ended in 1941.
8. SSA – Social Security Act
The Social Security Act was designed to combat the widespread poverty among senior citizens. The government program provided income to retired wage earners. The program has become one of the most popular government programs and is funded by current wage earners and their employers. However, in recent years concerns have arisen about the viability of continuing to fund the program as the Baby Boom generation reaches retirement age.
9. The Tennessee Valley Authority
The Tennessee Valley Authority was established in 1933 to develop the economy in the Tennessee Valley region which had been hit extremely hard by the Great Depression. The TVA was and is a federally owned corporation that works in this region to this day. It is the largest public provider of electricity in the United States.
10. WPA – Works Progress Administration
The Works Progress Administration was created in 1935. As the largest New Deal Agency, the WPA impacted millions of Americans. It provided jobs across the nation. Because of it, numerous roads, buildings, and other projects were completed. It was renamed the Works Projects Administration in 1939. It officially ended in 1943.
Study these programs and then ask God for His wisdom in implementing any of these and how you should do so. There are some merit in each I am sure but the solution to society’s problems are not through Big Government but through our Big God.
God wants to use companies to bring Social Justice, ministering and training for the poor and the widows and the orphans.
Righteousness and Justice are the foundation of his throne. Ps. 89:14.
The New Deal was a response to the Great Depression by expanding services and Government; The Federal Reserve Act of 1914 already created a Big Banking System.
How are companies to respond to the FRA? What is God’s alternative? Pray about an alternate system that is not Debt-Based to fund, lend and grow profits.
The New Deal was I believe a fear-based response to the Great Depression; God’s Newer Deal will be a faith-based response to the Greater Depression that we are currently in which started in 2008 and will go to at least 2018 I believe. The Greater Depression will be longer and more deep than its successor and will grow to be world-wide based upon unsustainable spending and derivatives and the weakness of a Global and thus interconnected Economy (put simply).
God wants to use you to reform the financial system; bring relief to the captives and recover the sight to the blind.
The Democratic Party dominated the White House for 7 out of 9 presidential terms; “God’s party” which is the Kingdom will have preeminence and it will be everlasting as we go into the Millennial Reign of Christ.
God’s army will rise in place of unions and the “machines”! There will be no need to “organize” because of the fairness of God’s Kingdom structure.
