Once upon a time the LORD stirred up the spirit of the Persian potentate. The President of Persia (a distant predecessor of Sayyid Ebrahim Raisolsadati) zealously decided to wholistically finance and endorse the agenda of the Maker whose ways are radically different than our ways. The Persian President delightedly deferred to the only true & living God who determines and dictates the definition of all that is GOOD.
The Persian government passed an irrevocable law saying,
“Anyone who wants to join in the agenda of the only true and living God (the God of all human existence; the God whose ultimate agenda is to show scandalous mercy to His enemies) is free to participate with the full financial backing, and hearty approval, of the Persian government! Any costs associated with the work shall be paid from the royal Persian treasury. Any and all costs shall be paid in full and without delay from the royal Persian revenue. Whatever is required, no questions asked, the Persian government will liberally and lavishly supply and contribute as needed! The most strict and official law of the land will be to give to God’s mercy campaign – and there will be buttons, hats, and t-shirts printed with the slogan, ‘Let it be given to God day by day and without fail.’ And if anyone attempts to alter this edict, a beam shall be pulled out of their house, and they shall be impaled on it, and their house shall be made into a dunghill. May God Himself overthrow any king or people who attempt to alter this decree. Let the radically liberal and lavish funding, and encyclopedic sanctioning, of God’s great commission be carried out with all diligence!”
“P.S. We also notify you that it shall not be lawful to impose tribute, custom, toll, or tax on any of God’s priests, Levites, singers, doorkeepers, custodians, janitors, or other servants in the house of God.”
“P.P.S. And you, Ezra, according to the wisdom of your God that is in your hand, appoint magistrates and judges who may judge all the people in the province, all such as know the laws of your God. And those who do not know them, you shall teach. Whoever will not obey the law of your God and the law of the king, let judgment be strictly executed on him, whether for death or for banishment or for confiscation of his goods or for imprisonment.”– The President of Persia (distant predecessor of Sayyid Ebrahim Raisolsadati)
