King of All Nations

November 12, 2007

by Mike Farris

A kingdom consists of four elements… 1) the king’s domain, or territory,  over which he reigns, 2) citizens or subjects, 3) laws, and 4) administrators to teach and administer the king’s law, or government, with equity (no respecter of persons) and justice for all (same punishment for same crime). In an earthly kingdom, the people die for the king; in the heavenly Kingdom (the one Jesus came preaching), the King dies for the people.

Jesus Christ is the King of all the nations because of Who He is. Jesus has not overthrown another king to make His claim. He is King lawfully by divine appointment… “the earth belongs to the LORD, and all its fullness, the world and those who dwell therein.” (Psalm 24:1).  God the Father has decreed Him to be King: “But as for ME, I have installed MY King upon Zion (a permanent capitol)… and I will give the nations for your inheritance.” (read all of Psalm 2).   God has anointed and sealed Him to His regal office. God has set the crown upon His head.

Jesus came to earth to announce the Kingdom of God. The time has come for Christians to demonstrate to all nations there is a superior form of government. After His resurrection, Jesus spoke to his disciples saying, ” All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations”… (Matthew 28:18-20). An earthly king is only authorized to administer the law of God, not make his own laws. In the Kingdom of God there are only two branches of government… administrative and judical… no legislative branch is needed  because man cannot improve upon the law of God.

Ecclesiastes 12:13: Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.

The “kings” of the earth are in their postions for one purpose only… to administer the Law of God. They have no authoriy, even though they have power, to go above and beyond the Divine Law. Just because the “kings” of the nations are in rebellion to the Kingdom of God and His righteous rule, does not negate His authority. One may ask, if Jesus has all authority, why doesn’t He use it to subdue the nations by force? That’s typical carnal thinking… might makes right. Jesus taught that His Kingdom is not of this worldly way.

 All actions originate in the heart (Mark 7:20-23; James 4:1), and acknowledging Jesus Christ as King must began in the heart. Instead of ruling by force as man does, from the top down, Jesus sets up His throne where no earthly king can break in and steal – in men’s hearts. No nation can survive forever unless Jesus Christ is acknowledged as King and the people embrace His Law which insures personal and national peace and prosperity.

The written Word of God in the only standard for earthly kings’ rule: “Now it shall come to pass when he (earthly administrators) sits on the throne (holds an office) of his kingdom, he shall WRITE for himself a copy of this (God’s) LAW on a scroll in the presence of the Levitical priests (judges in the Law). And it shall be WITH him, and he shall read it all the days of his life that he may LEARN to fear (respect) the LORD his God, by CAREFULLY OBSERVING ALL THE WORDS OF THIS LAW and these statutes (Deuteronomy 17:18-19). The earthly kings, as well as his people, come under God’s Law.  

For those who doubt that the Kingdom of God is a reality, the Bible emphasizes that all people are Christ’s subjects in a variety of ways.

 First, Jesus speaks to Nicodemus about the necessity of a “new birth”, a comprehensive transformation of the carnal nature of man (John 3:5-7). Mankind is not ‘sick’ and will get better with scientific advancements, rather mankind is “dead in trespasses and sins” (Ephesians 2:1). Only the regenerating power of the Holy Spirit can make a dead man live. The fundamental issue is ethical, not medical or psychological. Read the book, SonPlacing, by Garrison Russell to learn how to obtain the Life of Christ… in you the hope of glory.

Second, the written Word of God must be acknowledged as the only rule of faith and practice. Law is not found in the vote of the people (if voting changed things it would be illegal), the decree of the courts, or the pronouncements of rulers. The Law of God is Christ’s the King’s Law; therefore, it must be obeyed to live. God gives man only two choices…Life or Death. Furthermore, being set free in Jesus Christ liberates neither citizen nor ruler from the guidance, obligations, and benefits of the Law (Romans 3:31), only the final curse (penality) of the Law (Galatians 3:13).

Third, the regenerate mind is renewed (Romans 12:2). Every individual operates from a particular view of the world in his mind, and evaluates all life from this perspective… meaning his chosen religious presuppositions. True Christianity is not a religion, it’s the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Prior to acknowledging Christ as King, all life is seen from man’s carnal prespective: “For as a man thinks within himself, so is he” (Proverbs 23:7). The new creature in Christ will start to evaluate life from the prespective of the Word of God, and began to think God’s thoughts, “taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:5).

Fourth, those who do not want Jesus as King “will wage war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them (not by force, but with His mercy and love) … and those who are with Him are called the chosen and faithful” (Reveleation 17:14).

How then, can the blessings of real peace, prosperity, and happiness be secured which will assure liberty and guarantee justice for all? King Jesus answered this question when He said, “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness (which is the perfection of the administration of the Laws of that Kingdom); and all these things ( the needs of life of which He had been speaking) will be added (that is, given) unto you” (Matthew 6:33).

This is a call for all Christians, from the least to the greatest, to restore the administration which God established over the Kingdom. God gave us the Laws of Righteousness which His people are instructed to administer. This Divine Charter of National Administration of establishing equity, justice, and liberty is only possible when the  Divine Law is kept personally and nationally. And while God never granted man (or any group of men) the right to make law, He absolutely enjoins all nations to keep, observe, and administer His Laws. Get a copy of the book, Digest of the Divine Law, by Howard B. Rand, available from Stone Kingdom Ministries.  http://mlf1070.blogspot.com/2007/11/divine-law.html

Learn the Divine Law, teach it to your children and grandchildren. Be the “salt and light” God called you to be. Become an overcomer, even as Jesus Christ overcame, and sit with Him on His throne (James 1:12; Revelation 3:21). Pledge your allegiance to the Kingdom of God. http://mlf1070.blogspot.com/2007/11/national-anthem-of-kingdom-of-god.html

Christ himself says the Law is to be fulfilled on earth. Our earthly life is a ‘dress rehersal’ for Kingdom service.

 “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill.  For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled.  Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:17-19)

Our Father which art in heaven… Thy Kingdom come… Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely

September 27, 2007

Consortium News

It’s said that over time Presidents – especially two-termers – imbue the nation with their personalities and priorities, for good or ill. If that’s true, it could help explain the small-minded mean-spiritedness that seems to be pervading the behavior of the United States these days, both at home and abroad.

On a global level, the world reads about trigger-happy Blackwater “security contractors” mowing down civilians in Baghdad, the U.S. military killing unarmed people under loose “rules of engagement” in both Afghanistan and Iraq, and the CIA “rendering” suspected Islamists to secret prisons or to third-country dungeons where torture is practiced. Inside the United States, too, a police-state mentality is taking hold.

After more than six years of having dissent against President George W. Bush equated with disloyalty, police from Capitol Hill to college campuses are treating vocal disagreement as grounds for violently “taking down” citizens, while bouncers at campaign rallies hustle away prospective hecklers and police preemptively detain protesters or stick them in faraway “free-speech zones.”

On Sept. 17 at a University of Florida public forum with Sen. John Kerry, D-Massachusetts, journalism student Andrew Meyer asked an animated question about Kerry’s hasty concession after Election 2004.

Meyer then was accosted by several campus police officers who dragged him away and wrestled him to the ground. Despite pleading with police “don’t tase me, bro,” Meyer was “tasered” with powerful electric shocks as he screamed in pain. [Watch the YouTube video by clicking here.]

Overseas, it now appears that Bush has authorized “rules of engagement” that have transformed U.S. Special Forces into “death squads,” much like those that roamed Latin America in the 1970s and 1980s identifying “subversives” and murdering them.

According to evidence emerging from a military court hearing at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, U.S. Special Forces are empowered to kill individuals who have been designated “enemy combatants,” even if they are unarmed and present no visible threat.

The hearing involves two Special Forces soldiers who took part in the cold-blooded execution of an Afghani who was suspected of leading an insurgent group. Though the Afghani, identified as Nawab Buntangyar, responded to questions and offered no resistance when encountered on Oct. 13, 2006, he was shot dead by Master Sgt. Troy Anderson on orders from his superior officer, Capt. Dave Staffel.

Classified Mission

As described at the hearing, Staffel and Anderson were leading a team of Afghan soldiers when an informant told them where a suspected insurgent leader was hiding. The U.S.-led contingent found a man believed to be Nawab Buntangyar walking outside his compound near the village of Hasan Kheyl.

While the Americans kept their distance out of fear the suspect might be wearing a suicide vest, the man was questioned about his name and the Americans checked his description against a list from the Combined Joint Special Operations Task Force Afghanistan, known as “the kill-or-capture list.”

Concluding that the man was insurgent leader Nawab Buntangyar, Staffel gave the order to shoot, and Anderson – from a distance of about 100 yards away – fired a bullet through the man’s head, killing him instantly.

The soldiers viewed the killing as “a textbook example of a classified mission completed in accordance with the American rules of engagement,” the International Herald Tribune reported. “The men said such rules allowed them to kill Buntangyar, whom the American military had designated a terrorist cell leader, once they positively identified him.”

Staffel’s civilian lawyer Mark Waple said the Army’s Criminal Investigation Command concluded in April that the shooting was “justifiable homicide,” but a two-star general in Afghanistan instigated a murder charge against the two men. That case, however, has floundered over accusations that the charge was improperly filed. [IHT, Sept. 17, 2007]

The major news media has given the case only minor coverage focusing mostly on the legal sparring. The New York Times’ inside-the-paper, below-the-fold headline on Sept. 19 was “Green Beret Hearing Focuses on How Charges Came About.”

However, the greater significance of the case is its confirmation that the U.S. chain of command, presumably up to President Bush, has approved standing orders that allow the U.S. military to assassinate suspected militants on sight.

In effect, these orders have reestablished what was known during the Vietnam War as Operation Phoenix, a program that assassinated Vietcong cadre, including suspected communist political allies.

Through a Pentagon training program known as “Project X,” the lessons of Operation Phoenix from the 1960s were passed on to Third World armies in Latin America and elsewhere, allegedly giving a green light to some of the “dirty wars” that swept the region in the following decades. [For details, see Neck Deep: The Disastrous Presidency of George W. Bush.]

Blackwater Killings

Besides the periodic controversies over U.S. military killings of unarmed Iraqis and Afghanis, the Bush administration also is facing a challenge from the Iraqi government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki over the U.S. Embassy’s reliance on Blackwater security contractors despite their reputation as crude and murderous bullies.

On Sept. 16, Blackwater gunmen accompanying a U.S. diplomatic convoy apparently sensed an ambush and open fire, spraying a busy Baghdad square with bullets. Eyewitness accounts, including from an Iraqi police officer, indicated that Blackwater team apparently overreacted to a car moving into the square and killed at least 11 people.

“Blackwater has no respect for the Iraqi people,” an Iraqi Interior Ministry official told the Washington Post. “They consider Iraqis like animals, although actually I think they may have more respect for animals. We have seen what they do in the streets. When they’re not shooting, they’re throwing water bottles at people and calling them names. If you are terrifying a child or an elderly woman, or you are killing an innocent civilian who is riding in his car, isn’t that terrorism?” [Washington Post, Sept. 20, 2007]

The highhandedness of the Blackwater mercenaries on the streets of Baghdad or the contempt for traditional rules of war in the hills of Afghanistan also resonate back to the marble chambers and well-appointed salons of Washington, where swaggering tough-guyism reigns from the Oval Office to the TV talk shows to Georgetown dinner parties.

Inside the Beltway, it seems there’s little political mileage in standing up for traditional American values, such as the rule of law or even the Founders’ historic concept of inalienable rights for all mankind.

On Sept. 19, Senate Republicans blocked an up-or-down vote on a bill seeking to restore habeas corpus rights against arbitrary imprisonment for people whom Bush unilaterally has designated “unlawful enemy combatants.”
Bush’s supporters portrayed those who favored habeas corpus restoration as impractical coddlers of America’s enemies.

“This is purely a matter of congressional policy and national policy on how we want to conduct warfare now and in the future,” said Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Alabama. “Are we going to do it in a way that allows those we capture to sue us?”

The Republicans also prevented a direct vote on a plan to grant longer home leaves to U.S. troops fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Those two factors – obedience to Bush’s claim of unlimited power as he wages his “war on terror” and refusal to relieve some of the pressure on American troops facing repeated deployments to the front lines – are almost certain to keep making matters worse.

The mix of tired and desperate soldiers operating in an environment in which every person on the street is viewed as a potential suicide bomber is a formula for continued abuses, endless slaughter and deepening hatreds.

Back home, Americans who ask too many annoying questions or don’t demonstrate the right attitude toward government leaders can expect to encounter the hostility of an incipient police state, a thug nation that reflects the pugnacious arrogance and the contempt for dissent that is the stock and trade of the nation’s current two-term President.

Divine Law

August 29, 2007

by  Mike Farris

 Has the Divine Law been “put away” or “nailed to the cross”?  While the Ten Commandments are universally accepted as the highest moral code, there are other God-given laws which define the true standards of health, monetary regulations, taxation, interest, debt, and all other aspects of moral, social and economic conduct of the individual, family, and the nation. We are bound to these laws just as surely as we are bound by the Ten Commandments, or the law of gravity. To the extent that we fail to respect and follow all of God’s laws, personally and nationally, our nation will suffer the curses spelled out in the 28th chapter of the book of Deuteronomy. Read that chapter and compare it with what you see happening in our country, and around the world.

From the internal evidence in the Scriptures, it is shown that the Divine Laws have never been abrogated. Christian believers and their leaders alike fail to understand the various parts of God’s laws. Read my Blog: The Levitical Priesthood of Tennessee. https://mlf1070.wordpress.com/2007/08/06/the-levitical-priesthood-of-tennessee/

The teaching of God’s laws on all levels is dreadfully lacking today. Pastors, Bible teachers, and every student of political science should study the whole body of the laws of God given in the Scriptures for the benefit of mankind. Although they are frequently mentioned, their application in our daily life is usually ignored and misunderstood. Only the ceremonial rituals carried out by the Levitical priests were “put away”, or “nailed to the cross”.

The DIGEST of the DIVINE LAW  by Howard B. Rand was first published in 1943 and points out the fact that we face the rule of law or chaos. It sets forth the justice, equity, and righteousness of the Law of the Lord.  When the entire range of Divine jurisprudence is comprehended, and its precepts are obeyed, individual prosperity and national well-being will be the beneficent result.

The 1983 printing in hardcover is still available at the unheard-of low price of $9, plus $4 shipping from: http://www.StoneKingdom.org.  At that price, you can purchase a copy for yourself and your Pastor.  Howard Rand was one of the most prolific and knowledgeable authors on Bible subjects during the 20th century. An attorney by training, he was eminently qualified to write on the subject of Divine Law. God blessed Dr. Rand with long life, he was 103 years old at his death. The following is only a partial listing of specific topics covered by the Laws of the Lord.

1. Organization of government

2. Scope of government

3. Qualifications for office-holding

4. Government revenue

5. Legislative enactments

 6. Ownership of natural resources

7. Court procedure

8. Standards of values

9. Interest (usury)

10. Lending

11. Indebtedness

12. Private ownership

13. Property rights

14. Taxes

15. Tax exemptions

16. Labor relations

17. Vacations

18. Capital punishment

19. Stealing

20. Imprisonment; restoration

21. Military training

22. Conscription for war

23. Exemption from military service

24. Prohibited foods

25. Sanitation

26. Slavery

27. Kidnapping

28. Pentalty for kidnapping

29. Accidental death

30. Compensation for injury… and  much more in this 248 page book with full      concordant index, and Scriptural index.

Psalm 94:12 says, “Blessed is the man (and women & children) who receive correction, O LORD, and teach them out of THY LAW.” Read all of Psalm 119… it’ll do you good.

War Is A Racket…part 1

August 27, 2007

by Mike Farris

War is a racket. Very few wars are fought for ‘freedom’ or to ‘spread democracy’. And if you think democracy is something  fine and good, you have been brainwashed, programmed, and indoctrinated, with ANTI-AMERICAN propaganda. If you think it’s good that American and British lives and property are being used to spread democracy, your ancestors are spinning in their graves. For the full story, read my blog, Why Americans Have No Rights.

Wars are fought for profit… someone, or some corporation, makes a lot of money selling weapons to both sides, and controling the assets of the targeted ‘enemy’. Most people get along just fine until a criminal element in and out of government decide to go to war. These warmongers know that people will not  support a war for territory or natural resources. Here’s how the scam works. First, they covet something the other country has that they want to control. If they can’t make a deal with that country, they buy some politicians (and they’re a dime a dozen) to start a propaganda campaign against  that country. Does “Gulf War I” ring a bell? After they drum up enough support they provoke, or create, an incident to make the people angry enough to  fight.

http://es.youtube.com/watch?v=5sb7kZBEHL8&search=twin+towers+story

It worked in the Spanish American War… “Remember the Maine”, WWI was billed as “the war to end all wars”, WW II… “Pearl Harbor”, and it worked again, September 11, 2001… the “9/11” tragedy. If one will recall, the United States and Great Britain supported Saddam in the Iraq/Iran War for eight years. In return for that support, they expected Saddam to sell control of Iraqi oil fields to Standard oil and British Petroleum. When Saddam reneged on the deal, he became enemy number one. Then the criminal element in government made sure the people would support a “War on Terror” with an “attack”, and the ‘bought’ politicians invaded Iraq and Afghanistan… where it just so happens Big Oil wants to build an oil pipe line to a  seaport in Iraq.

The United States, and its British ally, has been fighting this “War on Terror” for longer than it took to win WW II…  with no peaceful end in sight. The world is a much more dangerous place, but the warmongers and their friends are much richer. Saddam is dead, and dead men tell no tales. The designated ‘boogey-man’, Bin Laden, is probably a CIA spook and living large somewhere on the French riveria. He shows up just long enough to make another propaganda video. The government hasn’t made any progress in locating this “terrorist”, have they? Why is that? Typically, when someone commits a crime and the government wants to prove the fact, an indictment is written up, evidence is presented and the alleged perpetrator is formally charged with a crime.

The Bush gangsters have jailed and tortured thousands, invaded Afghanistan, and destroyed Iraqi society resulting in the deaths of over 600,000 civilians since 2003 – but they still have not gotten around to indicting or even formally seeking Osama bin Laden’s arrest in connection with the 9/11 attacks.

 Iraq is a cash-cow for contractors

America’s Pastors

America’s Pastors: Preachers Of Truth Or Promoters Of Tyranny?
by Chuck Baldwin
August 21, 2007

Once again, the burden of responsibility to help maintain America’s liberty rests upon the shoulders of the men in the pulpits. That should not surprise us, because it has always been this way. Part of what made America great was old fashioned, tell-it-like-it-is, no-nonsense preaching. Most of what we hear today is a bunch of mealy-mouthed, pussyfooting, ear-tickling, don’t-offend-anyone preaching, which has largely contributed to America’s current slippery slope into the sewer. But if you thought it could not get any worse, guess again.

A startling television news report from Shreveport, Louisiana has revealed a sinister plot hatched deep inside the diabolical brain cells of the Bush administration to use America’s pulpits as promoters of tyranny. That is a strong statement, I know. But it is true.

According to KSLA television in Shreveport, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) intends to use America’s preachers to help pave the way for martial law in the event of another terrorist attack upon the United States.

The KSLA report (which you can read for yourself here: http://www.ksla.com:80/Global/story.asp?S=6937987 ) begins, “Could martial law ever become a reality in America? Some fear any nuclear, biological or chemical attack on U.S. soil might trigger just that. KSLA 12 has discovered that the clergy would help the government with potentially their biggest problem: Us.”

The report continued by saying, “[G]un confiscation is exactly what happened during the state of emergency following Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, along with forced relocation. U.S. Troops also arrived, something far easier to do now, thanks to last year’s elimination of the 1878 Posse Comitatus act, which had forbid regular U.S. Army troops from policing on American soil.

“If martial law were enacted here at home, like depicted in the movie, ‘The Siege’, easing public fears and quelling dissent would be critical. And that’s exactly what the ‘Clergy Response Team’ helped accomplish in the wake of Katrina.”

The report went on to say: “[C]lergy response teams would walk a tight-rope during martial law between the demands of the government on the one side, versus the wishes of the public on the other. ‘In a lot of cases, these clergy would already be known in the neighborhoods in which they’re helping to diffuse that situation,’ assured Sandy Davis. He serves as the director of the Caddo-Bossier Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness.

“For the clergy team, one of the biggest tools that they will have in helping calm the public down or to obey the law is the bible itself, specifically Romans 13.”

Dear Reader, are you getting this?

In order to convince American citizens to surrender their firearms to the government during a time of martial law, DHS is enlisting the assistance of America’s pastors. According to the DHS, my job as a church pastor, is to tell my congregation that, according to Romans 13, they must surrender their firearms when the government asks them to do so.

Of course, faithful readers of this column know that I have already addressed the Romans 13 question. See http://www.chuckbaldwinlive.com/c2007/cbarchive_20070810.html

For those who are ignorant of Romans 13, let me address the issue bluntly: According to Romans 13, every citizen is only bound to obey his or her governing official to the degree that the governing official does not violate the duty of the citizen to obey the “higher powers” which, for Americans, are God and the U.S. Constitution. In other words, no Christian can be ordered to disobey God, and no American citizen can be ordered to disobey the U.S. Constitution. Properly understood, Romans 13 teaches that each and every governing official (including the President of the United States and all those under him) must submit to the U.S. Constitution.

Article. VI. Paragraph. 3. of the U.S. Constitution states, “The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution.”

So, what does the Constitution say regarding the disarmament of American citizens? The Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution could not be clearer: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

Did you get that? “[T]he right of the people to keep and bear Arms, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.” [Emphasis added]

Therefore, any attempt to disarm the American people must be viewed as an act of tyranny and must be resisted.

The right to keep and bear arms is rooted deep in American history. I remind readers that it was the attempted gun confiscation of the colonists’ arms, which had been cached at Concord, Massachusetts, that directly precipitated the beginning of America’s fight for independence.

America’s founders were clear on this subject. Our first President, George Washington, called our firearms “the people’s liberty teeth.” Our third President and author of the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson, said, “No free man shall ever be de-barred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain their right to keep and bear arms is as a last resort to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”

America’s founders spoke unanimously on the subject. Patrick Henry said, “The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able may have a gun.” Samuel Adams said, “The said Constitution shall never be construed to authorize Congress to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.”

And what did the Lord Jesus Christ tell His followers on this subject? Jesus said in Luke 11:21, “When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace.” Did you see that? Jesus said that in order for a man’s goods to be “in peace” it was necessary that he be ARMED. Now, I don’t know about you, but I will take the word of Jesus over the word of a DHS official anytime.

Furthermore, Jesus told his disciples in Luke 22:36, “[H]e that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.”

Upon hearing the words of Jesus, Simon Peter responded by saying, “Lord, behold, here are two swords.” (vs. 38) That means at least two of Jesus’ disciples were armed with swords (the 1st Century equivalent of a modern handgun, something used for personal protection), and Jesus did not rebuke them or ask them to surrender their swords. He merely said, “It is enough.”

I realize that after Simon Peter used his sword to cut off the ear of the man as soldiers came to arrest Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus told him to “put up thy sword.” But notice, He did not tell him to “give up” his sword; he merely told him it was not time to use it, because it was in the plan and providence of God that Jesus be taken to Pilate, that He might be crucified for our sins.

Don’t tell me that the Bible teaches pacifism, because it doesn’t. I am a Christian, and I am a pastor. And I agree with Charlton Heston who said that they could have his guns “over my cold, dead hands.” If DHS believes that I will ask my congregation to give up their firearms, they are grossly mistaken.

It also needs to be pointed out that, apparently, DHS must already be planning to declare martial law in the United States or else this kind of advanced strategy would not even be necessary. Why would they already be asking pastors to be prepared to request their church members give up their guns if they did not intend to declare martial law?

Now, what every single church-going Christian in America should immediately find out for themselves is, What does my pastor intend to do? Will he ask me to surrender my guns, or not? I highly encourage every reader who currently attends church to ask your pastor this question RIGHT NOW.

Of course, the next question Christians need to ask themselves is, What will I do if my pastor says he would ask me to surrender my guns to the government? I suggest that every church member in America settle this matter right now. And if you discover that your pastor would indeed ask you to surrender your guns (or equivocate by saying he would have to “pray about it”) if asked to do so, you should immediately leave that church and find a pastor who believes the Bible and supports the U.S. Constitution. Furthermore, if you do not currently own a firearm, you might want to heed the words of Jesus and go buy one.

So, once again, the burden of responsibility to help maintain America’s liberty rests upon the shoulders of the men in the pulpits. Will we be preachers of truth or promoters of tyranny?

Is America A Free Country?

August 10, 2007

 by Mike Farris

Do you really think America is a free country in the 21st century ….

When over 40% of your paycheck is confiscated(stolen) by fraud via an unlawful income taxes to support a central government bureaucracy gone mad?

When Americans can’t travel on “free”-ways or public streets without a permit called a driver’s license? Can you imagine the pioneers needing a tag for their wagons?

When Americans must pay a “ransom” to the insurance company monopoly who got “laws” passed to make insurance mandatory to travel in your vehicle?

When you must send your children to a government licensed school or the State will confiscate your property, kidnap your kids, and put you in jail?

When your State approved “tax exempt” 501(c)3 church corporation teaches the one-world religion of obedience to man’s government and ignores God’s Laws?

When the nation’s police are more of a threat to life, liberty, and property than so-called “common criminals”?

When Americans must get permission from the State to marry? Even when they marry in their Church… what happened to separation of Church and State?

When Americans cannot practice “free” enterprise without being regulated, licensed, and taxed by the government?

When Americans can be jailed for contempt for exercising any of their God-given rights by corrupt judges?

When Americans must read  underground publications, or “freedom movement” blogs to learn the truth because the “controlled” media only puts forth party-line propaganda?

When the State tells you when, where and how to build on your property and even denies you the right to modify it unless you get their permission? (for a fee, or course)

When America has more “political” prisoners under lock and key than any other nation in the world?

When prisons are a growth industry  and private companies are building more “concentration camps” to house even more?

When the government knows every financial transaction you make and your private banking records are available to their prying eyes?

When the UNITED STATES  President is more concerned with “making the world safe for democracy” than the Sovereignty of the American nation he took an oath to preserve and protect?

When the government and the people have no common interest whatsoever and exist in a state of perpetual  hostility?

When everything you and your children will ever work for is mortgaged to the bankers and collectable on demand?

NO! dear fellow Americans, if you think America is the Land of the Free, you are sadly mistaken. America has been stolen. We have been made slaves by a shrewd Constructive Criminal Fraud that has caused us to be  permanent debtors, bankrupt, in legal incapacity, rendered commercial “persons”, “residents”, and corprorate franchisees known as “citizens of the UNITED STATES”, all capital letters, a legal fiction instead of our former status as Free Inhabitants of the Land of The United States of America(upper and lower case letters).

How did this happen? It started with the so-called “14th Amendment”. Said ‘Amendment’ was never lawfully ratified – see Congressional Record, June 13, 1967: DYETT v. TURNER, (1968) 439 P2d 266, 267; STATE v. PHILLIPS, 1975 (affirmed) – created a citizenship of corporations (privilege, not free God-given rights) to supposedly give the newly freed Negro slaves citizenship. These abstract statutory entities are the product and definitions of the legistature and are fully taxable and regulatable under the law. The 14th Amendment transferred all citizens from one master and placed them under another master, and was the first step in ensalving America. Notice when you receive a letter from the government your name is always all capital letters, signifying your corporate “privilege” status.

Step two occurred on the night of December 23, 1913 when most of Congress was on Christmas break. The criminal element in the United States Congress passed the Federal Reserve Act and thereby committed the greatest act of TREASON in history. These criminals surrendered our nation’s sovereignty and sold the American people into slavery to a cabal of arch-charlatan, anti-Christ international bankers who proceeded to plunder, bankrupt, and conquer America with a money swindle.

The “money” the banks issue are merely bookeeping entries. It costs them nothing, the government does the printing for them free of charge, and is not backed by their wealth, efforts, property, risk, or any collateral whatsoever. It is  not redeemable except in more DEBT paper. The Federal Reserve Act forces Americans to pay compound interest on thin air. We now use these worthless “notes” backed by our own credit, effort, property, risk, and collateral ( try getting a loan without it), and are made to compelled performance for the “priviledge”. In exchange for using(renting) notes belonging to bankers who create them from nothing, Americans are forced to repay in substance (labor, property, land, businesses, resources – life) in ever-increasing amounts. This is the greatest heist and fraud of all time.

Step three was accomplised in 1916 with the passage of the Internal Revenue Act. The bankers, ever fearful of betrayal, demanded that Congress secure the payment of loans with the forced collection of taxes. In effect, the IRS is the collection agency for the Federal Reserve, which is no more “federal” than Federal Express. Congress was able to convince the American public that the Income Tax was only for the “rich”(those who earned $3000 per annum in 1916), and would never affect 99% of the population. With their payment system firmly in place the Federal Reserve made more and more loans, and the United States paid the interest with more and more gold. The structured inevitability transpired in 1933 when the U.S. Treasury was empty, and the old United States declared bankruptcy.

In 1933, the United States declared bankruptcy as expressed in Roosevelt’s Executive Orders 6073, 6102, 6111, and 6260, House Joint Resolution 192 of June 5, 1933, confirmed in PERRY v. UNITED STATES, (1935) 294 U.S. 330-381, 79 L.ed 912, as well as 31 USC 5112, 5119, and 12 USC 95A. The bankrupted United States went into trustee receivership of a new UNITED STATES (cleaver, huh?) and reorganized in favor of 115 Creditors, and new owners, the Federal Reserve System. Read the well-documented books: Secrets of the Temple, How the Federal Reserve Runs The Country, by William Grieder, and Fourth Reich Of The Rich by Des Griffin.

 With the ERIE R.R. v. TOMPKINS case of 1938, the Supreme Court confirmed their success. America is now in an international private commercial jurisdiction in colorable admiralty-maritime under the Law Merchant. Americans have been conned and betrayed out of our God-given sovereignty, rights, property, freedom… our REPUBLIC. The Bill of Rights are nothing but “civil rights” in commerce.

Every American ‘knows’ in their heart of hearts that ‘something’ is wrong with the Land of the Free, but few have ever considered the root cause. Thomas Jefferson’s prophesy has come to pass: “If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of currency… the banks… will deprive the people of all property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.” What will happen when Americans realize that their alleged “public servants” are willingly or stupidly compliant parties to the plunder, bankruptcy, subjugation, and ruin of their lives and counrty?

It may take another bloody revolution, but let’s pray that we can regain our country by peaceful means at the ballot box. From this day forward, let Americans commit themselves to driving out of elective office anyone who runs for re-election. Public service is a brief civic duty, not a career. Never re-elect anyone! We won in 1776 against all odds, we can do it again.

You Shall Know The Truth, and It Will Make You Mad

August 9, 2007

An excerpt from the book, Fourth Reich Of The Rich, by Des Griffin.  World War I was then raging in Europe. With the prospect that the U.S.A. would  soon join the war, two Skull and Bones “Patriarchs” , Averell Harriman (class of  1913) and  Percy A. Rockefeller (class of 1900), paid special attention to  Prescott Bush’s class of 1917. They wanted reliable cadres to help them play the  Great Game, in the lucrative new imperial era that the  war was opening up  for  London and New York moneycrats. Prescott Bush, by then a close friend of “Bunny”  Harriman, and several other Bonesmen from their class of 1917 would  later  comprise the core partners in Brown Brothers  Harriman, the world’s largest  private investment bank.   The U.S entered World War I in 1917. In the spring of 1918, Prescott’s father,  Samuel P. Bush, became chief of the Ordinance, Small Arms and Ammunition Section  of the War Industries Board. The senior Bush took national responsibility for  government assistance to and relations with Remington and other weapons  companies.   With the war mobilization conducted under the supervision of the War Industries  Board, U.S. consumers and taxpayers showered unprecedented fortunes on war  producers and certain holders of raw materials and patents. Hearings in 1934 by  the committee of U.S. Senator Gerald Nye attacked the “Merchants of Death” —  war profiteers such as Remington Arms and the  British Vickers company  –whose  salesmen had manipulated many nations into wars, and then supplied all sides  with the weapons to fight them.   Most of the records and correspondence of Samuel Bush’s arms- related section  of the government have been burned, “to save space” in the National Archives.  This matter of  destroyed or misplaced records should be of concern to citizens  of a constitutional republic. Unfortunately, it is a rather constant impediment  with regard to researching George Bush’s  background: He is certainly the  most  “covert” American chief executive.   Captain Bush (Prescott)went to the 1919 reunion of his Yale class in New Haven,  Connecticut. Skull and Bones Patriarch Wallace Simmons, closely tied to the arms  manufacturers, offered  Prescott Bush a job in his St. Louis railroad equipment  company. Bush took the offer and moved to St. Louis–and his destiny.   Then on May 1, 1926, Prescott Bush joined W.A. Harriman & Co. as its vice  president, under the bank’s president, Bert Walker, his father-in-law and  George’s maternal  grandfather–the head of the family.   The firm’s first global lever was its successful arrangement to get into  Germany by dominating that country’s shipping. Averell Harriman announced in  1920 that he would re-start Germany’s Hamburg- Amerika Line, after many months  of scheming and arm-twisting. Hamburg-Amerika’s commercial steamships had been  confiscated by the United States at the end of the First  World War. These ships  had  then become the property of the Harriman enterprise, by some arrangements  with the U.S. authorities that were never made public. The deal was breathtaking; it would create the world’s largest private  shipping line. Hamburg-Amerika Line regained its confiscated vessels, for a  heavy price. The Harriman enterprise   took “the right to participate in 50  percent of all business originated in Hamburg” ; and for the next twenty years  (1920-1940), the Harriman enterprise had “complete control  of all activities of the Hamburg line in the United States.”   The Hamburg-Amerika takeover created an effective instrument for the  manipulation and fatal subversion of Germany. One of the great “merchants of  death,” Samuel Pryor, was  in  it from the beginning. Pryor, then chairman of the  executive committee of Remington Arms, helped arrange the deal and served with  Walker on the board of Harriman’s shipping front  organization, the American Ship and Commerce Co.   Walker and Harriman took the next giant step in 1922, setting up their  European headquarters office in Berlin. With the aid of the Hamburg-based  Warburg bank, W.A. Harriman & Co. began spreading an investment net over  German industry and raw materials.   In those interwar years, Prescott Bush made the family fortune which George  Bush inherited. He piled up the money from an international project which  continued until a new world war,  and the action of the U.S. government,  intervened to stop him.   We shall examine here the alliance of the Bush family with three other  families: Farish, Draper and Gray.   The private associations among these families have led to the President’s  relationship to his closest, most confidential advisers. These alliances were  forged in the earlier Hitler project and its immediate aftermath. Understanding them will help us to explain George Bush’s obsession with the supposed over-population of the world’s non-Anglo-Saxons, and the dangerous means he has  adopted to  deal with this “ problem. ”.   On March 25, 1942, U.S. Assistant Attorney General Thurman Arnold announced that  William Stamps Farish (grandfather of the President’s money manager) had pled “  no contest ” to  charges of criminal conspiracy with the Nazis. Farish was the  principal manager of a worldwide cartel between Standard Oil Co. of New Jersey  and the I.G. Farben concern. The merged enterprise  had opened the Auschwitz  slave labor camp on June 14, 1940, to produce artificial rubber and gasoline  from coal. The Hitler government supplied political opponents and Jews as the   slaves, who were worked to near death and then murdered.   After pleading ” no contest ” to charges of criminal conspiracy with the  Nazis, William Stamps Farish was fined $5,000. (Similar fines were levied  against Standard Oil–$5,000 each  for the parent company and for several  subsidiaries.) This of course did not interfere with the millions of dollars  that Farish had acquired in conjunction with Hitler’s New Order, as a large  stockholder, chairman  and president of Standard Oil. All the government sought  was the use of patents which his company had given to the Nazis–the Auschwitz  patents–but  had withheld from the U.S. military and industry.   Will Farish at 25 years old was a personal aide to Zapata chairman George  Bush in Bush’s unsuccessful 1964 campaign for Senate. Will Farish used ” that  Auschwitz money ” to back  George Bush financially, investing in Zapata. When Bush was elected to Congress in 1966, Farish joined the Zapata board.   When George Bush became U.S. Vice President in 1980, the Farish and Bush family fortunes were again completely, secretly commingled. As we shall see, the  old projects were now being revived on a breathtaking scale.   The Nazi regime surrendered in May 1945.   In July 1945, General Draper was  called to Europe by the American military government authorities in Germany.  Draper was appointed head of the   Economics Division of the U.S. Control  Commission. He was assigned to take apart the Nazi corporate cartels. There is an astonishing but perfectly logical rationale to this–Draper knew a lot about  the subject!  General Draper, who had spent about 15 years financing and managing  the dirtiest of the Nazi enterprises, was now authorized to decide who was  exposed, who  lost and who kept his business, and in practical effect, who  was  prosecuted for war crimes.   Draper and his colleagues demanded that Germany and the world accept the collective guilt of the German people as the explanation for the  rise of Hitler’s New Order, and the Nazi war crimes.   After several years of government service (often working directly for Averell  Harriman in the North Atlantic Alliance), General Draper was appointed in 1958  chairman of a committee  which was to advise President Dwight Eisenhower on the  proper course for U.S. military aid to other countries. At that time, Prescott  Bush was a U.S. Senator from Connecticut, a confidential friend  and golf  partner  with National Security Director Gordon Gray, and an important golf partner with  Dwight Eisenhower as well. Prescott’s old lawyer from the Nazi days, John Foster Dulles, was Secretary of State, and his  brother Allen Dulles, formerly of the  Schroder bank, was head of the CIA.   This friendly environment emboldened General Draper to pull off a stunt with  his military aid advisory committee. He changed the subject under study. The  following year the Draper  committee recommended that the U.S. government react  to the supposed threat of the “population explosion ” by formulating plans to  depopulate the poorer countries. The growth of the  world’s non-white  population,  he proposed, should be regarded as dangerous to the national security of the  United States!   President Eisenhower rejected the recommendation. But in the next decade,  General Draper founded the “Population Crisis Committee ” and the Draper  Fund,  joining with the  Rockefeller and Du Pont families to promote eugenics  as  “population control.” The administration of President Lyndon Johnson,  advised by General Draper on the subject,  began  financing birth control in the  tropical countries through the U.S. Agency for International Development  (USAID).   General Draper was George Bush’s guru on the population question. But  there was also Draper’s money–from that uniquely horrible source–and Draper’s  connections on Wall Street  and abroad. Draper’s son and heir, William H. Draper  III, was co-chairman for finance (chief of fundraising) of the  Bush-for-President national campaign organization in 1980. With George Bush  in  the White House,  the younger Draper heads up the depopulation activities of the  United Nations throughout the world.   In 1950 and 1951, John Foster Dulles, then chairman of the Rockefeller  Foundation, led John D. Rockefeller III on a series of world tours, focusing on  the need to stop the expansion  of  the non-white populations. In November 1952,  Dulles and Rockefeller set up the Population Council, with tens of millions of  dollars from the Rockefeller family.   In 1988, the U.S. Agency for International Development signed its latest  contract with the old Sterilization League (a.k.a. Association for Voluntary  Surgical Contraception),  committing  the U.S. government to spend $80 million  over five years.   Having gotten away with sterilizing several hundred North Carolina school  children,  not usually less than eight to ten years old,  the identical  group is now authorized by  President  Bush to do it to 58 countries in Asia,  Africa and Ibero-America. The group modestly claims it has directly sterilized   only  two million people, with 87 percent of the bill paid by  U.S.  taxpayers.     Evidence to clarify any role the polio vaccine played in the AIDS epidemic is being sought by the Wistar Institute in Philadelphia, which made the vaccine more than 40 years ago.   We couldn’t clean up the adeno virus vaccine seed stocks grown in monkey kidney cells. The seed stocks apparently were always contaminated but the vaccines were still administered. [The supplier of these contaminated monkeys from at least 1962 to the mid 1970s was Litton Bionetics, a top U.S. Army biological weapons contractor. Dr. Hilleman was the chief investigator overseeing the Merck contract to develop the hepatitis B vaccine that appears to have most plausibly initiated the AIDS epidemic. Merck’s President, George W. Merck, was an America’s biological weapon industry director personally appointed by President Roosevelt following WWII. Merck and Company, Inc. also is infamous for having received a large infusion of cash around the same time to secure a virtual monopoly over the chemical and pharmaceutical industries by Martin Bormann, Hitler’s top financial officer for the Third Reich. (See: “Martin Bormann: Nazi in Exile” by the reputable CBS News correspondent Paul Manning published by Lyle Stuart Inc., 1981, pp. 29, 56 and134).   According to Manning, Merck along with Germany’s leading industrial organization–I.G. Farben (a Rockefeller Standard Oil partner)– received the money to help actualise Hitler’s proclaimed “vision of a thousand-year Third Reich [and] world empire. This was outlined with clarity in a document call ‘Neuordunung,’ or ‘New Order,’ that was accompanied by a letter of transmittal to the [Bormann led] Ministry of Economics. It declared that a new order for the chemical [and pharmaceutical] industry of the world should supplement Hitler’s New Order (pg. 56) . . .. ‘Bury your treasure,'” Hitler advised Bormann, “for you will need it to  begin a Fourth Reich.” According to Manning’s report, that is precisely what Bormann did “when he set in motion the ‘flight capital’ scheme August 10, 1944, in Strasbourg. The treasure, the golden ring, he envisioned for the new Germany was  the sophisticated distribution of national and corporate assets to safe havens . . .” such as Merck.]   **********************************************************************************************

Why Paper Money Represents Theft

August 9, 2007

 by Mark R. Rushdoony

Every hour of every day the government is stealing your wealth, and, like a good thief, is never suspected. It does it by creating paper (or digital) money and spending it, just like a counterfeiter.

Scripture demands just weights and measures (Lev.19:35–36; Deut. 25:13–15). Obviously, a butcher who holds his finger on the scale when he weighs meat violates this requirement. However, this demand is also a reference to money, which was then also by weight of gold and silver and was counterfeited by adding impurities to it so that its weight was unjust. Tampering with scales or the money that measured wealth in economic transactions was called “unrighteousness” (Lev.19:35) because it was theft. Isaiah condemned Jerusalem for its sin. It had become a city of murderers, thieves, and bribe-takers, and , as Isaiah said, their “silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water” (Isa. 1:22). In other words, Jerusalem was a place where you were going to get clipped.

Melting worthless metals into precious ones, however, is cumbersome. Today’s unjust monetary weights are represented by paper money issued by the government. Increasingly, paper is eliminated and money is created digitally in a computer. Click, and dollars appear because the Federal Reserve System so commands. The government spends these artificial dollars at full value; it is only after they circulate that the increased circulation causes market forces to realize there is more money chasing the same amount of goods. The result is higher prices, reflecting the fact that all money is now worth a little less. Paper inflation is like adding water to wine; the wine becomes less valuable, not more.

Paper money works in the same manner as counterfeiting; only governments allow themselves the exclusive right to inflate the money supply. It still represents a morally lawless money because it is an artificial money, an unjust, unrighteous weight (really no weight at all). Inflation is the government creating spending power by “watering down” the money supply.

Paper money is the greatest single means of government control of wealth. We measure our economy, in fact, in terms of the government’s success in manipulating the flow of money. We watch the Federal Reserve to see if they can maintain a balance between recession and inflation. The health of our economy is increasingly measured in terms of government management, not in terms of productivity, savings, or capital. In reality, an economy that demands government management is already a troubled one.

Critics of hard (gold, silver) money note these are commodities that can fluctuate in value. They can vary in an open market, but paper money always varies and does so in a consistently downward trend. Money represents wealth, and government-inflated paper dollars are a manipulated sliding scale of wealth. How much has our scale slid? It is estimated that if you had held on to a 1934 paper dollar, its spending power today would be the equivalent of five 1934 cents!

We usually realize the tenuous nature of our money’s value. We scramble to avoid holding paper. We put paper money into tangibles we hope will increase in real value faster than paper dollars will decline. Antiques, art, real estate, and stocks all offer us some hope of outpacing the decline in value of our paper money.

Inflation destroys money, the measure of wealth, and is a poison for a capitalistic economy. Inflation means there is no security to acquired wealth, that we must do more than invest, we must speculate on what will outpace inflation.

Our money represents a counterfeiting government’s theft of our wealth. It is an unjust, that is, an unrighteous, weight that produces an artificial economic atmosphere. Like Jerusalem in Isaiah’s day, our counterfeiting government is ripe for judgment. Because it is unjust, the godly ought not to justify it.

Most of God’s judgments are the inevitable consequences of ignoring His laws. If you jump off a cliff, God does not have to do anything to judge you; His gravity will do the job. In our personal finances, we know that theft and debt will lead to our ruin. Our economy is based on the theft of false measurements and debt. One day it will see a severe correction. It will be a hard one, and the hurt will be universal. Avoid both debt and depending on the value of paper money to protect your wealth, however, and you will come out of it better than most.


Rev. Mark R. Rushdoony is president of Chalcedon and Ross House Books. He is also editor-in-chief of Faith for All of Life and Chalcedon’s other publications.Post Script: The word mortgage means “death grip”. It’s the same root word as mortal, mortician, mortuary. The false money system holds every debtor as its salve. The Bible condemns usury, but your 501(c)3 church corporation loves its “tax-exempt” status and will not teach Biblical Christianity, instead they practice a form of Godliness, but deny the power thereof. The blind are truly leading the blind.

The Levitical Priesthood of Tennessee

August 6, 2007

Adapted from George Gordon’s School of Law

Some years ago at the Feast of Tabernacles in Athens, Tennessee, a local preacher who had heard about our meetings approached me and asked if it was true that I practiced the Law of Moses. I replied that it was true. He then asked if I practiced the sacrificial laws. Preceiving that he meant the animal sacrifices associated with the Old Testament rituals, I asked him if he practiced the Levitical Priesthood in Tennessee. He emphatically denied that he did any such thing, and proceeded to preach me a fire-and-brimstone sermon about Christ crucified, and how Jesus did away with the Law of Moses.

Seeing that the man was a Christian in distress over doctrine, I apologized for my outrageous suggestion the HE might be a practitioner of the sacrificial system of the State of Tennessee, explaining that I had heard that the people of Tennessee practiced the Levitical Priesthood, with sacrifices and heave offerings under another name, calling it “The Judicial System”.  As he stared at me as if I had just landed in a spaceship from Mars, I asked him if Tennessee had any State Highway Patrol officers. He admitted that they did. I then asked if they had Police, Lawyers, Judges, Courts, Courthouses, Court Rooms with Bars and Benches, and Fines for Criminal activities. Once again he admitted that the County where he lived, and the rest of Tennessee, did have all these things and that they do make up the Judicial System. I told him that since I was from out of State and had only heard that the people of Tennesse were a religious lot, I wanted to be sure that they had the same system that I had back home. Once more he gave me that strange look, and asked how in the world is the Judicial System religious? So I related the following story to him.

Suppose you drive down the road at 80 mph and the policeman, ever vigilant and looking for crimes, sees you and roars off in hot pursuit. When he catches up to you he asks for your drivers’ license, and notes that it does not give you permission to drive 80 mph. He also smells alcohol and sees an open container of beer in you car. You fail a breathylizer test.

He then arrests you and takes you to the nearest jail from where you are brought before the Judge who is sitting on the Bench behind the Bar in the Courtroom which is in the Courthouse. You are stood beside your Lawyer who is before the Bench and in front of the Bar to enter a plea of guilty, which makes you a Criminal. The Judge gives you a Fine to pay, and assesses Court Costs. If you do not like this, you can appeal to the Supreme Court. This is called the Judicial System, or Civil Service.

In  Old Testament times this system was called the Levitical Priesthood, and worked in the same way that our Judicial System does. The Policeman of today is the High Priest’s servant who is constantly looking for sin (crime). Sin is the transgression of the Law (1John 3:4). When the High Priest’s servant uncovers your Sin, he arrests you and puts you in the Jail in the Courthouse.  Old Courthouses are designed like a Temple and always sat in the town square( in many small towns this arrangement is still the custom), where the High Priest conducts the Temple sacrifices in the Holy Place called the Courtroom today. You, of course, will recognize the High Priest by his long black robe, and you always rise in respect whenever he enters or leaves the Courtroom. The High Priest(Judge) sits behind the Altar (Bench) which is behind the Veil to the Holy Place (Bar). To pass this Veil, and approach the High Priest requires an Intercessor (Lawyer) who will help you in your prayer (Plea) to the High Priest about your Sin (Crime).

When you plead that you are guilty of this Sin, you become a Sinner (Criminal). The High Priest then imposes a sacrifice of one ram of the first year, which is called a Sin Offering (Fine). He also imposes a Heave Offering (Court Costs) of two turtle doves. If you think you got a raw deal, you can go to Moses through the Aaronic Priesthood in the Holy of Holies (appealing to the Supreme Court). This system of law and sacrifice is called the Levitical Priesthood, better known today as the Civil Service, or the Judicial System.

Tennesse is a Sovereign. A Sovereign makes Law. A Lawmaker is god. To violate this Law is Sin. Sin requires a sacrifice as a matter of Law, whether it’s Civil Law or Criminal Law. People who practice the religion of the United States make sacrifices to their god, either voluntarily or involuntarily. To summarize:

  • The Policeman is the High Priest’s servant
  • Crime is Sin
  • Going to Jail is being put in the Ward of the Temple
  • The Courthouse is the Temple
  • The Courtroom is the Holy Place
  • The Judge is the High Priest
  • The Bench is the Altar
  • The Bar is the Veil
  • The Lawyer is the Intercessor
  • The Plea is the Prayer
  • Being guilty of the Crime is being guily of the Sin
  • A Criminal is a Sinner
  • The Fine is the Sin Offering
  • The Court Costs are the Heave Offerings
  • The Supreme Court is the Holy of Holies
  • The Judicial System is the Levitical Priesthood

So, I closed by chiding this Christian preacher a little, reminding him that Christians are the “People of the Book”, and that we all practice the sacrificial system of the Levitical Priesthood every time we go into a Courtroom. I also pointed out that although the Judicial System is patterned after the Levitical Priesthood, it is the dead letter of the Law. Christians are under the Melchisedec Order, the living spirit of the Law. Hebrews 4:14-16 & 5:1-10.  With the destruction of the Temple in 70 A.D., the old Levitical priesthood with animal sacrifices was destroyed, never to return. God is our Sovereign and Law giver. Jesus is our High Priest (1 John 2:1-6).  A servant obeys his master because he has to… a son obeys his Father because he wants to.

What Does ‘Open Borders’ Mean?

August 6, 2007

Welcome to the Richer Scale!

By Bill Richer

President Bush and most Republicans and Democrats want our borders open. They justify the open border with reasons such as immigrants providing more votes or taking jobs Americans won’t do.

Then they are pushing for more Visas like H1Bs to bring more foreigners to replace high-tech American workers. Bush once said, “All Americans have to do is take an extra course or two to compete!” In other words he wants Americans to compete with the world for not only American high-tech jobs but for every job in USA. Then they also are outsourcing many jobs overseas and taking with them high technology and personal data of Americans that can easily be used to steal identities and money! In another article I read about a few years ago in an interview, George W. Bush told the interviewer, “I don’t have to answer to the American people!”

So what does “Open Borders” mean?

1. It means that Republicans and Democrats are working together for a global government! This makes them one party!

2. It means that the FTAA which calls for open borders from the bottom of South America to the top of Alaska is being pushed ahead of time even before it is voted on!

3. It means that the President and Congress do not care about what 80 to 90 percent of the American people think. They act as if we are not here!

4. It means that Homeland Security is a farce and a waste of money as long as the borders are open. It is like fishing with a net with a huge hole in it. It was even said recently that they have a huge amount of money not even used! What are they doing?

5. It means that the King George we got rid of in the Revolutionary War is back!

6. It means that the President and Congress and both Republican & Democrat Parties no longer follow the US Constitution!

7. It means that the sovereignty of the United States borders is at least in question and at most we have none!

8. It means that since sovereignty is in question, is the United States dissolved?

9. It means if the United States is dissolved, the war on terror must be a phony war!

10. It means the military that is fighting overseas, that says it is fighting for its country, may not have a country. Our military has been blinded by a false patriotism. (Also, there are questions why experimental shots and depleted uranium are taking its toll on our men and women in uniform).

11. It means that any draft should be flatly refused! We should instead join civilian militias or minutemen like groups in our states.

12. It means that the new masters of the government are the Banks and Corporations. The government is now only a criminal element with a flag on the wall for false patriotism.

13. It means that the Patriot Act and Homeland Security were not made for security of the American People but for the security of banks and corporations. They will be used to enslave the American people.

When a government makes laws against the people, it gets paranoid because it becomes fearful of the people so it makes laws like Patriot Act for their protection.

14. It means that the continuing flow of Illegals will continue to close hospitals because hospitals cannot afford to care for all of them for free.

15. It means that the closing of hospitals and the continuing flow of Illegals with various diseases could start a violent epidemic of one of these diseases throughout America with not enough hospitals to care for all people.

16. It means that criminal gangs from Illegals are setting up shop in many cities creating war zones in many areas in the USA.

17. It means that drugs flow in smoothly with the border wide open!

18. It means that open borders, Illegals, Visas and outsourcing are turning America into a third world country if we don’t stop it soon! Our pays go down and prices go up! Some Americans cannot even get jobs!

19. It means that because the President and Congress do not obey the Constitution to guard our borders, there is a question of sedition and treachery. Is this government truly the US government or is it a domestic enemy of the Constitution as many of us have sworn to defend? (How dare Bush call the Minutemen, “Vigilantes!”)

20. It means that all we have heard from the John Birch Society in the past 25 to 30 years about conspiracies and takeovers is coming to fruition even though the left has told us time and again that it wasn’t true.

21. It means they will try real hard, soon, to take away our guns! This we must never let happen. We should have never allowed one law in any state about guns at all.

22. It means the George Bush is not a very good Christian. “Behold, the wages you withheld from the laborers who reaped your fields are crying out” (Jas 5:4). Yes the people who have no jobs or are working for peanuts are crying out!

23. It means that George Bush is not serious for changing Social Security for the good of the American people when he wants to add Illegals to Social Security. This would bankrupt it! (It seems that everything George Bush does seem to point to bankruptcy of the USA).

24. It means that the Corporations and Banks have been stealing American Taxpayers money through the politicians for decades.

25. It means that military training is stopped because of thousands of Illegals crossing in military training areas.

26. It means high gas prices keep many from traveling. Could mean they don’t want people leaving their areas.

27. It means we can’t believe much of what the government says. The crash of KAL 007, crash of TWA 800, WACO, Bombing in Oklahoma City and the events of 911 leave us with many unanswered questions.

28. It means that the American people must watch foreign peoples brought to this country by our government because they may very well be military from foreign governments. (Friends of the management, the Banksters) Remember both Clinton and the Bush has helped China build up economically and militarily. China is on both sides of Panama Canal, has base in Bahamas and recently put bases in Cuba. They have about 3000 companies in US and most of their companies are owned by their military. You don’t hear this in the news!

29. It means that if things don’t go in the neo-con’s way, look for another 911 and this time they will declare Martial Law. Americans must not allow Martial Law to take effect! By leaving borders open they are allowing anyone in here to cause another 911. They can’t be trusted! If we allow Martial Law, the American people will be slaves!

30. It means that the American people are blinded and addicted by their pleasures so much so that they don’t care what happens, not even to their children. They may know all the stats of all athletic games but know nothing of the goings on of their government or know their US Constitution. Many believe the old adage, “Leave Politics to the Politicians!” This we cannot allow!

31. It means that there can be no patriotism while this government goes about business ignoring the American people!

32. It means that all men and women who fought and died or were wounded physically or emotionally for the American Dream to go on in America in all past wars would have panic attacks if they saw what George Bush and company are doing today! I wonder if the heroes of those wars would repeat what they done if they saw in the future what the government is doing today!

33. It means that our Founding Fathers must be rolling in their graves at what is happening today! Yet, I still hear their words, “As for me, give me liberty or give me death!”

Well, if I thought about this I could think of a lot more items that I could add but this is pretty good the way it is.

I just want to say that not to give up hope! We all must think we are now at Valley Forge with George Washington. Things seemed hopeless then too. Yet, the prayerful Washington surprised all with victory! We all must pray to God for America and do everything to help our country come back to God and the Constitution. I have a webpage to pray for America if you’d like to use it and to have your name written on it:
http://www.geocities.com/wjpbr1//prayam.html

Also I would like you to read a webpage I created on George Washington. God would not have used George Washington’s talents if He didn’t want the USA to survive. Read the articles and I’m sure you will agree. Here is address:

I leave you with four of my favorite quotes:

“Man proposes, God disposes!”Author Unknown

“Pray as if everything depended on God, and work as if everything depended upon man.”Cardinal Francis J. Spellman

“There are no great men. Just great challenges which ordinary men, out of necessity, are forced by circumstance to meet.”Admiral William Frederick (Bull) Halsey Jr.
