On Spiritual Losers and Idiotic Clowns

Apparently Jeff Bezos, the power-hungry, greedy, leftist, adulterer, gazillionaire never read these words of Yeshua: 

For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? (Matt 16:26)

Or the words of Paul, the apostle,

 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites…(1 Cor 6:9)

Yeah, Mr. Bezos may be one of the wealthiest men alive, but he’s also one of the stupidest! He’s a spiritual loser and an idiotic clown. He has little or no moral compass, can’t control is sexual passions, and is driven by his unbridled lust for money, power, fame and sex! Really, he’s no different than most of the wealthy elite who control the world. Make no mistake, their day of reckoning before the judgment seat of YHVH Elohim is coming! Of these spiritual losers, the Word of Elohim declares concerning the end times, Babylon the Great New World Order system and the political leaders and merchants who have been made rich by her,

For your merchants were the great men of the earth, for by your sorcery all the nations were deceived. And in her was found the blood of prophets and saints, and of all who were slain on the earth.…The kings of the earth who committed fornication and lived luxuriously with her will weep and lament for her, when they see the smoke of her burning, standing at a distance for fear of her torment, saying, “Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour your judgment has come.” And the merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her, for no one buys their merchandise anymore.…Therefore her plagues will come in one day—death and mourning and famine. And she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges her.

(Rev 18:23lp-24, 9–11, 8)

Moreover, YHVH Elohim predicts of these “great men” (who are really fools, by biblical definition) of the earth,

 The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together, Against YHVH and against His Anointed, saying, “Let us break Their bonds in pieces And cast away Their cords from us.” He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; YHVHshall hold them in derision. Then He shall speak to them in His wrath, And distress them in His deep displeasure…You shall break them with a rod of iron; You shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel. Now therefore, be wise, O kings; Be instructed, you judges of the earth. Serve YHVHwith fear, And rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, And you perish in the way, When His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him. (Ps 2:2–5, 10–12)

Frankly, I would rather abide in a tiny cabin in the woods living hand-to-mouth, while walking in right relationship with Yeshua the Messiah, than to have all the money in the world en route to hell!

May Mr. Bezos repent of his sins and turn to Yeshua the Messiah…what a glorious testimony he’d have, but I ain’t holding my breath on this one!

Meet The Mistress Who Will Cost Bezos $70 Billion

Jeff Bezos’ revelation on Wednesday that he and MacKenzie Bezos, his wife of roughly 25 years, would be filing for divorce set off a chain reaction of speculation as readers wondered whether the soon-to-be-former Mrs. Bezos would walk away with half her husband’s fortune (presently valued at a tidy $70 billion) and – more importantly – whether another woman was involved in the separation.

And as is often the case with the world’s wealthiest, the answer to both questions appears to be yes. According to Page Six, Bezos has been carrying on a secret relationship with Lauren Sanchez, a former TV anchor and wife of Hollywood talent mogul Patrick Whitesell – considered one of the most powerful men in Hollywood, whose clients include Christian Bale, Matt Damon and Hugh Jackman.

The two first got to know each other through Sanchez’s husband (the two couples socialized together because they both owned homes in the same wealthy enclave of Seattle).

Sources said that Bezos, 54, and Sanchez, 49, – who also works as a helicopter pilot – got to know each other through her WME/IMG husband Whitesell, one of Hollywood’s most powerful men and agent to stars including Matt Damon, Christian Bale, Kevin Costner, Hugh Jackman, plus a host of other A-listers.

[…]

An exclusive source told Page Six “Patrick and Lauren have socialized with Jeff Bezos and his wife for a few years, because both (now former) couples have houses in Seattle.”

Sanchez, her husband and Bezos were even photographed together at the premier of “Manchester By the Sea”…

Bezos

…an award-winning film which featured one of Whitesell’s clients, Michelle Williams.

Patrick, Lauren and Jeff were even pictured together at a 2016 event for the movie “Manchester By The Sea,” which starred another of Patrick’s clients, Michelle Williams. But sources say Lauren became closer to Bezos after she separated with Whitesell in the fall. Meanwhile Bezos revealed on Wednesday that he and his wife have been going through a “trial separation.”

But the relationship presumably began to blossom after Bezos hired Sanchez – who also works as a helicopter pilot – to work for his “Blue Origin” space exploration company.

Lest readers conclude that the pair had been carrying on a clandestine affair behind their partners’ back, the Post noted that Sanchez had been separated from her husband – and presumably Bezos had been separated from his wife – by the time the two had started seeing one another romantically.

“Patrick and Lauren Sanchez have been separated for a while. Their marriage has been off and on for a while, and they tried hard to fix things, but in the fall they officially separated. She had told Patrick that she has been recently seeing Jeff Bezos.”

Lauren, a former co-host on Fox 11’s “Good Day LA,” has been a guest host on ABC’s “The View” and “Extra.” She was also the original host of Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance.” She also runs a company called Black Ops Aviation, which specializes in shooting aerial shots for TV shows, movies and commercials.

But although Bezos and his wife have reportedly been separated for some time – with Page Six noting that the couple hadn’t been seen in public together for a long time – the gossip page suspects that Bezos decided to make his announcement on Wednesday to get out ahead of reports about his relationship with Sanchez.

But if MacKenzie has any lingering anger about the breakup, the simple fact that she could soon become the world’s wealthiest woman should help soothe her anxieties.

As Bloomberg reports, walking away with half of the Bezos fortune would put MacKenzie Bezos ahead of Francoise Bettencourt Meyers, the granddaughter of the founder of cosmetics manufacturer L’Oreal SA (Bettencourt is worth some $45 billion).

MacKenzie would be in good company among the wealthiest women. Because as it turns out, most of the 66 women on the Bloomberg’s list came into their wealth through death or divorce. Out of the 66 women, only six are self-made, compared with 313 self-made men.

But it’s still unclear whether the Bezos will evenly divide Jeff’s 16% stake in the e-commerce giant he founded, we can’t help but wonder: Was his relationship with Sanchez really worth $70 billion?

    I am not sure why you are saying this. Aren’t we meant to be speaking to one another in psalms and songs and not even mentioning this kind of stuff that does not edify the body..

    I am sorry these people have chosen this way but all my hope is for them is repentance and the reality of their predicament to come forward in their minds and hearts so that they will tremble with fear before the righteous judge and seek mercy.

    Some of us who become faithful are actually found by Christ through admitting the sin of sexual immorality and that most gut wrenching admission of an unholy lifestyle does have a paycheck in the here and now but those who are forgiven much, love much.

    So that is my hope.
    blessings of peace to you , Natan.

    • I’ll tell you why I’m saying this: To quote Jeremiah, it’s like fire shut up in my bones!

      Speaking to one another in psalms, etc. is in the context of the church assembly meeting. When I’m pastoring a congregation or leading a group Bible study in a home, assuredly, we’re not talking about these things. However, this blog is my rooftop to the world. We are commissioned to call the world to repentance just like John the Baptist (along with Jeremiah and the other biblical prophets and Yeshua), who, while preaching the gospel and pointing people to Yeshua was also a commentator on the political events of his day as well as preaching a message social justice in line with Torah. Moreover, if we’re to be salt and light in this dark and tasteless world, we have to identify the problems, then the biblical solutions and then point people toward Yeshua and his word who are the answers to all of humanity’s problems. It’s really that simple.

      • Where does the Bible ever say that godly people can’t comment on the affairs of the day going on around them in secular society? This is exactly what the devil wants—for the righteous to keep silent and to go back to playing church.

        Yes, Yeshua is the ultimate judge, which is what I state again and again, but this doesn’t mean we are to hide silently inside the church cloister and never to come out——that we aren’t to look at the fruits of the wicked and identify them for what they are in light of the truth of Elohim’s word. Where in the Bible are the saints commanded to keep silent about the evils of the world going on around them? If so, apparently John the Baptist, the OT prophets, Yeshua and the apostles were never aware of this. This is the problem with the modern church——it doesn’t speak out enough! Yeshua commands us to make righteous judgment and to be a fruit inspector (John 7:24; Matt 7:24), although we don’t have the prerogative to pass ultimate judgment on a person’s spiritual fate, but rather to identify the sin and to call sinners to repentance. How can we call sinners to repentance if we don’t identify their sin? If this is what I’m being accused of, then I stand guilty as charged, and happily so. HalleluYah!

        Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? Who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity? (Ps 94:16)

  2. One can’t serve God and mammom 🙂 It really is easier for a camel to go thru the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of YHVH. so the love of money is the root of all evil. I hate the fact that I need money but I don’t hate or love money itself. rather looking forward to life everlasting in His kingdom 🙂 I’m remembering an old song line,
    “your mother never cared for me, but did she ever say a prayer for me?” Can we pray for J.B? What a testimony his would be if he saw the Light! 🙂

      • Yo Natan and Carol that is like my thoughts.

        Let’s hope and pray to bring glory to God! We don’t make the decision but prayer may effect the outcome.

        I have been a very lost one myself. (although I was financially poor and sinned, so perhaps it was easier for me to see what Elohim is about without so much power of my own to change my world & ignore God’s Kingdom physically by using money)

        Do these folk in the stratosphere of sin actually ever get anyone near enough in reality to love them enough to make inroads of heaping coals on their heads or is that the job of God who humbles the haughty?

        I have thought about what you wrote Natan and hadn’t thought about it that way. I understand more of where you are coming from.

        I was thinking more of the website as ministering to believers needs alone and didn’t grasp what you are doing. Thanks for telling me as it felt so out of left field from your usual instruction and admonishments of correction.

        And though it may never be seen by the people you are talking about…. it may be seen by a person considering that it would prosper them to continue their lives in a similar way. Hopefully to see it is futile and death.

    • Shalom Nathan. Interesting about Bezos, who is founder of Amazon.com and CEO, and his wife, novelist MacKenzie Bezos, recently made front-page news by announcing their divorce after 25 years of marriage. The unimaginably vast wealth of this couple has in many ways been a blessing to others. Jeff Bezos established a charitable fund with $2 billion to build preschools in underserved areas and to help homeless families.
      Bezos’ Twitter announcement read in part, “We’ve had such a great life together as a married couple, and we also see wonderful futures ahead, as parents, friends, partners in ventures and projects, and as individuals pursuing ventures and adventures.” Despite the oddly cheery framing of the situation, it cannot hide the sadness that a family is breaking apart. And, as many people have already pointed out, if things were that wonderful, why divorce?
      Unless a marriage has become intolerable due to abuse or addiction, children – even grown children – suffer from their parents’ divorces. The four Bezos children will now be forced into divided loyalties, choosing between their parents when celebrating holidays and other special occasions. Their lives will be disrupted emotionally and physically for many years, and perhaps permanently.
      “The impact of divorce on children is devastating,” says Dr. Diane Medved, clinical psychologist and author of Don’t Divorce. “Out of love for their children, many wise couples with difficulties work ceaselessly to fix, bridge, and adapt to the challenges as they arise.”
      None of us know the reality of the Bezos’ marriage – or anyone else’s marriage for that matter – but the high-profile divorce reminded me of a few insights I have learned in more than thirty years of marriage about what it takes to make this most intimate and consequential relationship work in the long run.
      Marriages have “seasons,” and while most begin with the warmth and color of a beautiful spring day, over time, the season may turn gloomy and cold. The difference between successful and unsuccessful marriages is that couples in successful marriages accept the reality of the relationship’s ups and downs. They know that a lull in their feeling of closeness, of emotional intimacy, can be overcome with dedication and patience. Spring will come again.
      Successful marriages are also anchored by a shared commitment to transcendent values. “A couple that actively pursues a relationship with their Creator is more likely to also feel invested in their marriage,” observes Devorah Agulnik, Ph.D., a licensed marriage and family therapist in upstate New York. “There’s a mindset that life is not meant to focus on self-gratification as much as it is focused on one another, one’s family, and their faith. Happiness and contentment will result from those values.”
      A marriage is also a living thing and requires daily nourishment. “No one can assume the other can coast along without constant acknowledgement and appreciation,” Dr. Medved observes. “If there’s a single day when you may have slighted your spouse by not making him or her feel like the most important person in your life, you’ll need to compensate for that somehow.” (This is especially true during a “cooler” season.)
      Jeff Bezos is now reputed to have had an affair for many months with another woman, also married. Infidelity is the cause of many, many divorces, yet second marriages – often to that “other woman” or “other man,” have a much higher divorce rate than first marriages. This is no surprise. Both partners in that second marriage have demonstrated that they don’t mind violating their marriage vows to be faithful. What’s to stop them from meeting yet another person who this time really is “the love of their life”? This is why it’s always a mistake to lead with your feelings. Feelings change; values should not.
      We need to protect our precious marriages through setting boundaries around the relationship. No man or woman should ever let their guard down, allowing even “mild” flirtations with another individual. Even the briefest, momentary seclusion with someone of the opposite sex can lead to an unexpected, yet utterly disruptive and destructive dalliance. This is why Judaism places so many “fences” around male-female relationships. Our laws preventing seclusion between a man and woman who are not married or closely related is meant to safeguard us from our all-too-human frailties.
      Marriages enduring a “cold” or “distant” patch don’t have to end in divorce. There are excellent therapists who can help couples learn to communicate and understand one another better, and find a way back to a satisfying, nourishing intimacy. Remember, strong, beautiful marriages are not born, but built. They endure not because they don’t have struggles, but because they do have struggles. A couple that is committed to making their marriage work can often recapture the spark and love from their first spring.

      • How true.

        And he really thinks things are going to be better for him now? Who is he kidding?

        He needs a good therapist, but, especially, he needs the eternal principles of the Bible to guide him through the troubled seas of life, so that he won’t be just another piece of flotsam and jetsam drifting around out there aimlessly. He also needs Yeshua to redeem him from his sins and to empower him to live a biblically righteous life where he will have a higher purpose and hope to live for, instead of just gratifying the lusts of the flesh and eyes and the pride of life.
