Government by the People…It has Deep Roots!

As I continue to learn more & more about the founding of America, I am becoming more & more fascinated with the workings of governments. Coming from someone who, in the past, couldn’t care less, this in itself is pretty amazing!

Also, coming from someone who looks to God’s grace & His new Covenant – which replaces completely the old Covenant (Galatians 4:22-31), wherein we found the Old Testaments laws (government) of God given through Moses – this is all the more surprising. Government produces laws. But the just shall live by faith…there seems to be an antithesis at work here, doesn’t there? Yes, I’m mixing spiritual truth with temporal environments & workings, but…can they really be separated?

In a post from March, 2014,  America…and Law vs. Grace, I wrote about the possibility that no matter how perfectly our Constitutional laws were applied, in the end, even the glorious *Redeemer Nation, the United States of America & her government would fall short. In the end, only the ways of God in Christ would prevail, not through the systems of man but through the Son of God, our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ.

Well…I didn’t realize at that time, how instrumental were the Old Testament systems of government in our own.** If someone doesn’t point this out, I think many of us would not realize it. So now, I’m in the middle of quite a rethink, and it’s going down deep….

~~~

Everyone knows that, according to Scripture, in ancient times the nation of Israel wandered 4o years in the desert, with Moses leading them. Up until now, my understanding of this long, drawn-out trek was that the Israelites just weren’t getting it. They were going about everything the wrong way. The LORD had His hands full, bringing them into the Promised Land of Canaan! I’ve heard sermons about being bull-headed & rebellious resulting in long stretches of wilderness in our own lives…

.. and I’m not saying all these things aren’t true.

Moses -Peoples LawBut it occurs to me, one thing that isn’t normally taught, is that during this time the LORD gave the blueprint for the government of the future United States of America. The same Moses who brought those stone tablets of Law down from Mt. Sinaiand because of that is called ‘one who accuses’ – is also the Moses who implemented rulership of ‘the People’!! The Moses who, according to Josephus & others, was being groomed to be the next Pharaoh (The Hidden Moses ), a Pharaoh who ruled the people, instead became the Moses who set up the system that allowed the people to rule! And perhaps, even in large part, this was one of God’s purposes for that wilderness jaunt. If this be true, how foolish we are today to ignore that miraculous gift! We have been given the answers!

How much God loves us, how much forethought & effort He put out so long ago, to bring America forth in her time! People, we need to catch this vision! This IS the vision of our Founders! When they produced our Declaration of Independence & our Constitution, they were working in accord with the mind of God!

~~~

“…in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.”

(Matthew 18:16)

….so we have here a first example of people’s government, seen in the structure of ancient Hebrew life.

~~~

Enter (many, many centuries later) the Anglo Saxons.

Around 450 AD, the Anglo Saxons arrived in southern Britain. Their intention of temporarily joining with the king of Kent to combat his enemies resulted in a permanent arrangement, as well as a name change from Britain to Anglo-land (or England). With their ruling presence came their “institutes of constitutional government…almost identical with those of ancient Israel.”**

I cannot help but draw a connecting line between these two ‘testimonies’ of sorts,Anglo Saxons spoken, written & enacted in the governments of each of these two nations, the Israelites of old & the Saxons who eventually peopled England, the mother country of those forever gloried thirteen colonies now known as the United States of America. Is it not then possible, that this strong & free nation of America, with her fortifying Constitutional rule of law by the People is – and was always intended to be – an established word of God? Of which it was testified & foreshadowed by two powerful ‘witnesses’?

GREAT & MIGHTY is our God!

Accusations, turmoil & all the other usual suspects continue to plague our President and his administration.  The Scripture makes it clear that the devil only departs for a season – he’s not going to stay gone – so we should expect this kind of troubling.

But in those moments when even a President Trump supporter might…flinch…the above post on Lana Vawser Ministries.com,  from this past Inauguration Day, has greatly encouraged that supporter, and warrants re-posting now.

Are You Waiting for God’s Axe to Fall?

Are you sure, as a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, that He will always come through for you? Are you SURE?

I know that you know at least some of the pertinent Bible verses that tell us we will be provided for, in the now as well as in the hereafter…but do you really feel completely secure in this? Are there not at least a few occasional doubts…that wiggle around in the back of your mind like the nasty little evil worms that they are! And then grab every possible bit of opportunity to grow into gobs & blobs of worry, anxiety, & fear?

~~~

I used to speak frequently with a very interesting brother in the Lord, who had attended seminary, pastored, held house meetings & ministered at a teen mission center. He started his own janitorial supply business, was married & had (at the time) 2 children. He cast out devils. (He cast something out of me.) In fact, this brother told me that, for about a year, he had walked in the knowledge of being as God. Now, I know of no one else who has had that experience – and I would think that, anyone who has had it, would not have any problems at all trusting God. Yet, my friend had lived under the constant fear of not believing God would come through for him.

I couldn’t comprehend that inability. This brother seemed so…well, advanced…in the things of the Lord. And at that time, I was fairly sure of God’s ‘coming through’ for me, and I was nowhere near as knowledgeable in such matters, as this man was.

Now, knowing more & having walked decades with Jesus (through both valleys & atop mountains!), I too am ofttimes much less certain. Yet I constantly see His touch & provision, in the smallest details to the larger issues. As recently as today, I have been delivered from the hand of him who was too strong for me. (Concerning one of those larger issues!) Even so, I suspect that the next time I’m suffering, or anxious…He will leave me to my own devices. Which causes more suffering…

So I thought that I might lay out some Scriptures to counter-act this kind of doubt. I want to halt that train of thought in its tracks.

~~~

There is absolute assurance. It is found in covenant, and only in covenant.

~~~

“It will be an everlasting covenant.” (Ezekiel 37:26)

“I…will set My sanctuary in their midst forever…” (v.26)

“My dwelling place also will be with them” (v.27)

“You (Jesus) are a Priest forever, according to the order of Melchizedek” (Hebrews 7:17)

I suspect that, when you’re struggling before a pile of bills that you can’t pay, and maybe your kids are sick and it was a rough day at the job, Melchizedek is not the first thing on your mind! You’re getting a headache and it’s all just too much at the moment…talk of covenants & priesthoods & kings, really, aren’t even in your rearview mirror.

But they need to be.

Melchizedek

~~~

 

Those things which we cannot be guaranteed that we can accomplish for ourselves, or for those we love & who need us, are prime causes of worry & anxiety. The list could go on & on, right? What great comfort would there be in some kind of guarantee outside of our own attempts!

“Jesus has become the guarantee of a better covenant.” (Hebrews 7:22)

~~~

In the message ‘Our New Covenant of Grace’, Rev. Wayne Monbleau states that “God did for us what we could never do for ourselves. That’s grace…”(https://youtu.be/lmZYJ18d_tw @2:40) 

You really need to let that sink in.

~~~

This is our starting point.

I think that before we can experience complete rest in God’s Abba Father nature, and His caring for us in all things, we first must arrive at that watershed moment when we accept that we cannot. Period. I know this sounds contradictory, but before we begin doing what we can do, in any realm, we first must acknowledge that we cannot.

~~~

WHEN we accept this, and turn to the One provided for us, Jesus the Son of God…

WHEN we understand that every answer lies in Him…(because the lasting answers do not lie in us)…

THEN everything pertaining to Him becomes important. And we realize that we are not wasting time learning about ancient Bible history or seemingly irrelevant details & instructions, thinking we should instead be stressing out over financial shortages & running ourselves ragged working overtime…

WHEN we understand that lasting security will not come through stressing out & running ragged, I think it is much easier to exhale and begin to become more fully engaged in learning about your New Covenant of grace.

~~~

What I’m finding to be an unexpected comfort, is the continuity of covenant. It has always been available. (John 1:29 + Rev.13:8) It is not going away.

I used to perceive the different covenants of God as being in two separate categories, Old & New. My thinking was, the New Covenant is what’s happenin’, baby! The Old, not so much – it foreshadowed the New, of course, but other than that….it’s history…and I also used to be a little conflicted over my own perspectives here because the very Scripture itself tells me that the Word of God endures forever, so…how could any of that Word be just ‘history’? How could it not be potent & alive?

I understand now that the promises made by God in His ‘old’ covenants with Israel, Abraham, Levi & King David are in fact fulfilled in Jesus Christ through the New Covenant. They are all in one. There is no separateness in Him. I did not realize how desperately I needed to see this…until I saw it.

Jesus, Blood & the Devil

 

It seems to me that an over-riding theme of this world is chronic counterfeiting.

For such are false apostles, deceitful workers……Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light…his ministers also {are} transformed as the ministers of righteousness…” (2 Cor.11: 13-15)

As I learn more & more about…well, everything!…it also seems that I notice more & more attempts to counterfeit the things of God. Really, it’s all over the place…and I don’t think it’s a good idea to be consumed with such awareness, but rather let it be a safeguard of sorts. Forewarned is forearmed. “Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.” (2 Cor. 2:11)

~~~

The story of the garden of Eden has been presented to us in different ways & at different levels. First, we are told Eve ate an apple. That version is believable to a child. It is safe, a non-toxic version. Further along, we learn more specifics – oh, maybe it wasn’t an apple? we think, as we read in Genesis “But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil thou shalt not eat of it…” (v 17). My own experience was such that about a decade passed after I came to Christ, before someone presented me with the possibility of Eve having experienced physical intimacy with the serpent in the garden. It is admittedly a revolting thought. http://sexwiththedevil.blogspot.de/2010/11/eve-had-sex-with-devil.html

Approximately another 30 years passed before this topic re-surfaced in my life. Only mildly less revolting to me by now, I have pretty much settled on this last ‘explanation’ as true. https://godhistoryandyou.wordpress.com/2016/06/12/what-went-down-in-eden/ Going forward with this mindset, it occurs to me that once again, we see a counterfeit.

~~~

Assuming, then, that the theory of Eve’s seduction by Satan is a fact, I see a parallel with this coupling of the human female Eve & a non-human being with the virgin Mary (human) being overshadowed from on High by the Holy Spirit (non-human) (Luke 1:35.)

I used to think that the devil seduced Eve in an attempt to toxicify her bloodline with his …DNA?…and abort the plan of God to produce the Messiah. After all, could One with polluted blood become the very Savior needed to purify with that blood? It would certainly seem not, in what might have been the devil’s thinking.

…but now I wonder if his devious motives were something else, or at least additional ones – did Satan think that he could produce his own savior? Beat God to the punch? Steal Jesus’ thunder? Satan is, among other things, a thief. (Even though the apostle John doesn’t specifically mention the devil by name, in chapter 10 of his gospel, it seems the devil is implicated under the heading ‘thief’{John 10: 7-10}.)

I realize that at the time of this diabolical event in Eden, a Savior of the world may not have yet been needed. The LORD God did not promise the serpent that the seed of the woman would bruise his head until after Eve’s tragic choice, so…perhaps what Satan had in mind was producing more of a ruler than a savior. And/or a race of devils. It just seems likely to me that something along these lines was going on. He was still, after all, trying to be like the Most High (Isaiah 14; 14.)

~~~

Something else has crossed my mind several times.

The Illuminati bloodlines…

“This ‘Divine right’ is simply the right to rule by DNA.” Illuminati bloodlines

“This ‘Divine’ right to rule has nothing to do with the ‘Divine’ and everything to do with the real origin of these bloodlines. They claim to descend from the ‘gods’ of the ancient world and who or what these ‘gods’ were and are…”

“…they are seeking to retain the DNA corruption that can apparently be quickly diluted by breeding outside of itself. ”

“…the families of the Illuminati and the power elite do the same to this day. Why? They are the same bloodlines.”

-David Icke, Tales from the Time Loop http://www.atlanteanconspiracy.com/2008/06/presidential-bloodlines.html

~~~

For the life of the flesh is in the blood.” (Lev.17:11)

“…for the blood is the life…” (Deut.12:23)

~~~

On the flip side, in glorious contrast to the dark manipulations & malignings of such a precious substance as blood, THROUGH IT our redemption came. Through the blood of the eternal Covenant the great Shepherd of the sheep was brought up from the dead. (Hebrews 13:20) And this mighty event was brought to pass by the God of…peace. Reverend Wayne Monbleau, radio host of Let’s Talk about Jesus, has said that throughout His life, Jesus carried the chalice of that blood with Him and kept it pure, untainted, holy…so that God could raise Him from the dead through it.

So we see why unholy powers might want to corrupt a bloodline. And even though attempts to prevent the mighty, redemptive blood-bought victory of our Savior didn’t work, similar attempts continue to be made – through other avenues of worldly opportunity, to produce corruptions that facilitate ongoing counterfeits of that Savior’s works, kingdom & lordship.

Monarchy Encroaching?

When I first published “They wanted a King!…or, The Evils of Monarchy” https://godhistoryandyou.wordpress.com/2009/07/15/they-wanted-a-king-or-the-evils-of-monarchy/ in July, 2009, I had no idea, really, of the…magnitude…of that topic. I could not relate at all as to why Benjamin Franklin was so concerned about the colonists possibly reverting to monarchical rule (W. Cleon Skousen, The 5000 Year Leap, p.18,19.) My thinking at that time was, after all they suffered? such spilling of blood & loss of treasure? how could anyone EVER consider monarchy again!! To me, such an action was unimaginable. And beyond foolish.

Greater awareness of what goes on in the world, and exposure to types of information once completely foreign to me, has broadened my perceptions.

~~~

Deception ever seeks to lure the innocent & unsuspecting. Some who should by now be partaking of strong meat are still desiring only milk! We need to become those who partake of meat. There are realities beyond foundations of repentance & faith, doctrines beyond resurrection & eternal judgment, and we are exhorted to move past them to perfection. (Hebrews 5:12-14, 6:1-2) When we find ourselves in places demanding that we learn to discern between good & evil, we become those partaking of meat. We may not then be so easily deceived.

I say these things because I think, based on my own experience, that this ‘leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection’ (Heb.6:1) encompasses the kinds of knowledge & understanding that are needful in, say, avoiding a return to monarchy. The desire for an earthly monarch (king) can be, at root, a spiritual error. In a world torn by hatreds, divisions & conflicts, pummeled daily with lies & fear, people want an answer. What they DON’T want is more chaos & discord in governing bodies.

They wanted a King !....or, The Evils of Monarchy

Samuel imparts the LORD’S warning

 

Israel of the prophet Samuel’s time, similarly wanting security in their own world, where fraud & corruption abounded in their ‘government’/judges (1 Samuel 8:3), wanted an answer also. Against the Lord’s extremely clear, warning counsel, they demanded…yep…a king. A monarch!

 

Although on the face of it, the demands of those people seems more like simple bull-headedness, it is not. First came a forsaking of their God. Then a serving of other gods. Webs entangle, darkness clouds vision & judgment. We may hear but not listen.

~~~

What the people did not seem to care about was that their God wanted to be their King. Israel instead wanted to be like the other nations (Multiculturalism? Globalism?), having a king of flesh & blood. Somehow they had been deceived into believing that an earthly king would be preferable, more effective than Yahweh.

~~~

There was a moment in my life when the Lord told me that I was not to look to people or organizations, insurance or company benefits, government or improving economies for my help. Though He may send help through persons or agencies, He was the Source. He wanted me to trust Him alone. . “Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.” (Psalm 146:3)

…so for the peoples of our world today to reach a place of need, or desperation, where they believe any man or any agenda can bring solutions to their crises – apart from God working in & through them – would seem to be a big mistake. Yet more & more, we hear talk of global organizations/leaders/agendas that would seem to point to this very thing.

Something very big is going on. Hiding in plain sight, it gains mass & momentum.

Conceivably, at the ‘right’ time, it will manifest & the world will fall for it. It is manifesting now, and many do not see. (Perhaps they should not see, perhaps it is not necessary & would be of no benefit to anyone.) The complete manifestation would be so timed as to coincide with a readiness of the world’s peoples to welcome its arrival & its programs. IN THE MEANTIME the way is being paved by large & compelling issues: borders/immigration & climate change (whether real or a hoax). In order for a globalist agenda to be accepted, there needs to be conditions that affect all peoples & nations around the globe. Well, environmental conditions affect the entire world. And if the world was one big, borderless mass, well, there you have it, ready-made for a one world leader. No separate countries with separate cultures & governments, let’s just all blend together & be one big happy ‘family’ without individual citizen’s rights, so we can easily be taken over.

~~~

“The Old World Order was characterized by {individual, separate} monarchies, countries with independent standing armies, metals and fiat currency. The New World Order will be characterized by One-World government {single ‘monarch’?}, open borders, a world army, world court, and a world cashless credit-based currency managed via microchips.” http://www.atlanteanconspiracy.com/2008/06/new-world-order-part-1.html {parenthesis mine}

~~~

 

IF WE ARE NOT looking for a ‘monarch’ to provide solutions & security – if we are seeking our help from the LORD instead, and through HIS ‘agenda’, purposes & people – such events as just described wouldn’t happen. Humanity’s focus would be elsewhere, not fixating on an earthly ‘king’ & his World Court, nor so willing to buy into the narratives that accompany this.

Fourth of July, 2017

It is the Fourth of July, 2017.

It is a warm, clear, sunny day. Earlier, sitting outside on the wooden stairway landing, I read the Declaration of Independence out loud. It is a tradition I started a few years ago. I’ve noticed that each year I have a different reaction to those potent, destiny-shaping words.

~~~

“We, therefore, the Representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress assembled…”

Can you imagine what it would have been like, to BE one of those people? REPRESENTING such a powerful, permanent thrust of history? What if it had been you, in solidarity with those 55 other brave compatriots, choosing to place your signature on the Declaration of Independence? In doing so, you would no longer be just you. The very fabric of your life would be forever transformed. Within your actions, your words – indeed your very presence! anywhere! – would pulsate the glory & destiny of a nation.

I believe that those who chose this path in 1776, were given an opportunity like none other. It staggers me, to try to grasp it.

~~~

“For this cause we faint not…for our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory…”   (2 Corinthians 4:16,17)

~~~

I believe that the spirit of this Word lived within our founding patriots & warriors, whether they knew it or not.

GLORY BE TO GOD!

God bless America.

 

God in America

Political Parties, the Federal Reserve & Jesus

Have you ever wondered – as I have – how the two-party political system began in the young nation of America?

One day, in some casual reading regarding our new nation, I noticed that this split party development appeared to have sprung from the dilemma of needing money and the attempted means of procuring it. I was both intrigued and a bit stymied by that. I have never had a natural inclination towards understanding economics or financial matters. But volume 4 of The American Heritage: a New Nation tells me that $80,000,000 in debt required plans & actions to repay it – plus expenses incurred on a daily basis ‘to carry on government functions’. Tariffs & subsidies, securities, debt consolidation – bailouts, taxation. bonds & credit – you name it, were argued, opposed, and instituted, leading to establishing a national bank ‘to provide more credit’. Alexander Hamilton was for, Thomas Jefferson against – ‘…the breach widened between them, and before the contest was over, America had two political parties.’ (p.309)

I never pursued more detailed research on this subject. But now that our world – the entire world – is spiralling down the rabbit hole, and many don’t even realize this, I’ve recently been paying more attention to finance. Not so much mine – I know what my deal is! and I try to place my trust in God, not money – but national and global monetary issues. Nations crashing financially don’t happen overnight, nor does their downfall come from nowhere. There are roots that produce this fruit. So I’ve been looking a little more closely into the situation.

~~~

I am not saying that I’m doing detailed research into monetary structures & processes. And I am definitely not saying that I’m really ‘getting it’.  Still difficult for me, still a struggle…But something is clicking, in the overall picture. Events past & present, like puzzle pieces, are starting to fit together.

~~~

Unpayable debt transfers power and control to the sovereign power structure that has no interest in money, law, equity or justice because they have so much wealth already. (Rep. James Traficant, Jr.-Ohio, addressing the House, United States Congressional Record, March 17, 1993 Vol. 33, page H-1303

The information contained in Mr.Traficant’s speech, quoted above, is more than upsetting. It explains to us some actions that were taken in 1933, approved by then President Roosevelt, that re-structured the government that you think you now have today. If you’ve already heard about this, or know it, it is still shocking & sobering. If new to you, it will change your whole view of the United States of America & her government. Traficant tells us that, “Unwittingly, America has returned to its pre-American Revolution, feudal roots…”

He continues, “Since the inception of central banking, they have controlled the fates of nations.” ‘”Since the inception of central banking…” Bells going off, anyone? The ‘sovereign power structure’ mentioned above is the ‘they’ we are talking about here. It is what people are calling the New World Order global elite. It is still alive & kicking – or trying to kick, anyway – and look where it got it’s start. Not sure I really want to say ‘Thanks’ to Alexander Hamilton….

~~~

The gist of James Traficant’s speech to Congress in 1993 seems to be a clear explanation of the Federal Reserve Bank/System – what it really is, how it basically functions, and what this has meant, and still means today for you & I, as American citizens. It is not pretty. But We, the People need to know the truth here. Reading his words might give some a crucial overall understanding of what goes on in some areas of our current political system, and the world, today.

 

( Note: At this time, I am unable to connect to the above link to James Traficant’s speech for more than a few seconds. Then the page goes blank. Before it does, however, there is enough time for me to read that Traficant was framed for fraud & corruption in 2002 – if I correctly recall – then jailed for 7 years. He passed in 2014. I did not see any mention of the circumstances of his death in this piece. -9/21/2016)

(UPDATE: http://mhkeehn.tripod.com/Traficant.pdf seems to work – 6/26/2017)

~~~

 What grabs my attention here, as I extrapolate on this information – coupled with my minimal knowledge of global intrigue, institutions & assemblies, is the fact that money seems to lie at the core of much that has transpired over time, leading the world to the brink of a looming Armageddon. Getting it, paying it back, hoarding it – and finally, using it in all its aspects, to control others. Using it as power.

~~~

In the past year or two, I’ve seen so many alarming headlines, warning, informing – in an apparent attempt to escape unprecedented financial loss by certain investments or purchases involving gold. To me, as someone barely ‘getting by’, such drama seemed surreal. Now, I’m beginning to see what the big deal is. Whole other elements exist in this world, than what I have known in ‘normal living.’ I am not necessarily referring to the wealthy in their entirety. I refer to those whose whole world becomes drastically threatened when markets crash & stocks drop. I refer to the ‘panic on Wall street’ crowd. Most of all, I refer to those who operate in darkness, and shades of darkness, while appearing to you to be standing in the light. I refer to those who partly comprise that of which Paul writes in the first chapter of Galatians: “…our Lord Jesus Christ…who gave himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil world…” (v.3,4)

I believe such people fear losing much more than just money. Because the love of money is the root of all evil, I would venture that such persons, couched in that love, are enslaved by evil (whether they know it or not) and produce evil. They spin webs that trap others. These ‘others’ probably include – or included at one time – you & I. These web-spinners do not care about your well-being or mine. They care about maintaining control. Over us. Crashing economic/financial structures bode, for them, complete loss of power & control.

I suggest that maintaining this control commands such extreme importance for these people, because they think that in some way this control represents their own ‘salvation’. They are way off the mark here. Perhaps they are allowing themselves to be deceived, because for them, the truth is unbearable. Neither money nor power & control can help them, ultimately. They are, or are associated with, antichrist. Unless they repent of this, and choose Christ the Saviour of the world, their doom is sealed.
