In the beginning men were ruled by God as children are by parents. As children grow up parents must let them go out from parental protection and control. The baby birds are pushed out of the nest and forced to go their own way.
As men come into contact with ether men, rules are formed to control their engagements. That is called law. Authority is designated to some one to administer the equitable restraints to protect the best interests of the people. This person is called a minister. Lastly a means to determine if each individual is following the law and staying within his just realm is called a court.
The way of law, the minister or master, the court or Justice: these three should remain without encroaching on each other. This encroachment is what causes the problems and misery in the world. Men grabbing for more than they were intended to have is the world's problem. The Bible was given to us to solve that problem.
Men grabbing more than their share of pleasure and men grabbing more than their share of control are the two main problems which the Bible was designed to stop. God gave us the law, and God appointed his light, Jesus Christ to enlighten us on how God's law must work. Jesus is the minister or executive while God remains law maker or legislative in character. To complete the 3 part government of Legislative, Executive, and Judicial, each man is given a conscience to judge his own actions. This book shows how the acts of Jesus Christ establish a way to prevent the greedy who want to control countries. God gave us a military draft law, which provides a ransom of one penny if your conscience tells you that the powers are calling men to an unjust war.
This power to say no is part of our religious liberty and to make it available to yourself, you need courage to believe and to know the truth and then the truth shall make you free.
To stop the encroachment of the different branches of the government, each of us must be vigilant.
We have problems in our country and the same freedoms are not available to all of us. For instance, our legislators convene their sessions with prayer by a chaplain paid for by tax dollars but the courts have not addressed that issue, so the law makers can pray and be prayed to, while children in school are protected from religion, but allowed free access to evil interests.
If you learn enough about the Bible to defend yourself from serving and killing for an unjust cause, you will also be able to stand up against other forms of injustice.
Why is it necessary for men to say no to unjust wars like Vietnam? Because if everyone says yes without thinking, they will say yes to a dictator too.
There are two different kinds of governments in the world that could be classified as free or slave. The slave governments are the kind that put all of the power into one individual such as a dictator. They are totalitarian or total control governments. The smallest things are usually rigidly controlled with police power. Control is accomplished by dividing the country into very small communities and placing all powerful lords over these communities. It is in these small communities, where every one is known personally that the people are kept under control with the strictest rules. The rules need not be important. The important thing is that people must get used to following.
From the word community they take the name Communism. Communism is patterned after the monarchies of the dark ages where the kings had riches and power serfs had nothing. It takes it's power from many small men whose insatiable thirst for power distorts their judgments. They take small men who are nobodies and make them think they are important by giving them power so they will use that power to serve the common control necessary to sustain Communism.
The only way one is able to detect the existence of Communism is by noticing when the same men make the laws as enforce them. To quote George Washington: "The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all the departments in one and thus to create, whatever the form of government, a real despotism."
To prevent that despotism the United States was organized as a triune form of government, such as God's. The Trinity being the union of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. The Father; God gave us the Law, therefore:
God is legislative as The Law Maker. The Son teaches us and administers that Law of God, or he is the minister of the Law so Jesus is the executor of the Law as head of the executive department. The Holy Ghost is that part of God that mingles among men or our God given conscience. We are the judge of our own actions as our conscience dictates to us so our conscience is judicial. That is the part that is not fully developed yet.
Our Government was organized this way with Legislative Executive, and the Judicial to follow after God's plan. This Union or Trinity of Legislative, Executive, and Judicial is Our heritage from God and this is what makes the difference between free and slave governments.
Since God is the author of FREEDOM which comes of the Trinity, it must be that God, being the giver of Law, is also obliged to stay within His respective realm as Legislative and so we are very foolish to expect God to enforce his Law. To be consistent, God has left the Executive duties up to the Son of Man, who has done marvelously in establishing this rule up to now.
Being Executive only and with no Legislative powers, it must be understood that He will need time to influence and alter the affairs of His Government. Time to get the Judicial Department functioning properly outside His jurisdiction.
God was ready 6,000 years ago. Jesus was ready 2,000 years ago. The time is required to get us and our conscience ready. In God's time table, 6,000 years have been allowed to do this. During this time it is important that God's intervention be held to an absolute minimum, else He will become totalitarian which He hates. That would defeat the entire program of freedom. The apparent influence of God has become increasingly less as time runs on and that is as we should expect. God is scheduled to rest after six days which would be 6,000 years according to Second Peter 3:8: one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
To understand God's plan, consider the wild animals. Their freedom is good but when winter comes and it gets cold and they get hungry, their lot seems less desirable than the domestic animals in a warm barn and plenty of good food. There are good and bad things about both conditions but if one could figure out how to keep the advantages of freedom without losing the advantages of domestic comfort, it would be like God's Trinity Plan. That is with all the freedom plus all the comforts. All that need be changed is man's attitude, but the problem is that, the more comfort man gets, the lazier and greedier he becomes and that is only half of the problem. The other half is man's idea that it will not work until all men follow and become kind and generous or all loving. God's problem is to come up with a plan that will make life good for all men of good will and at the same time will not be interrupted by those of ill will. That is a big problem and that is why it takes 6,000 years and all of God's wisdom to start.
How well God's Trinity Law will work depends entirely on how well His Executive functions. That is: enough of the burden will be removed to make it possible for us to be judged by our conscience or that part of God in us, we call the Holy Ghost. All men have certain characteristics inherent in us, that will make us respond in a certain way to a given situation. By understanding all of these, our Executive or King; our Lord; Jesus Christ, is able to control His realm. He has added the necessary influence to change our collective attitude. When the general attitude of men is changed to make certain things seem right or wrong to the masses, it is easy for an individual to accept that attitude. We tend to set our values by what seems good to most people.
One problem: If the accepted influence is not consistent with the law, there is no way for the person to be in the proper attitude to accept the law within the judicial logic that his conscience has prepared for him. If the laws do not fit within the accepted standards or conscience of the man, the conflict within him will either destroy him or his compliance of the law. There must be a very careful synchronization of the law and the injected influence into men to create an efficient compliance of the law.
That means if the influence of Jesus Christ is to be effective, the law must be that of God because that is the way both will be compatible. The more our laws vary from God's, the more police and courts will be needed and the further our people will depart from God. If we have God's conscience ruling us, we must have God's law. If we accept the law, we will follow it. If the masses reject the law they will change it. Therefore, Jesus must provide an influence to bring about a mass return to the Law of God.
During the past 2,000 years the resentment of the execution of Jesus has grown. We have passed judgment on the people we feel responsible for that atrocity. The purpose for that is to have us pass judgment ourselves, on what we have done much like Samuel did to King David. The home of Samuel was Arimathea or Rama as it was once called. That is where the voice of Rachel was heard, weeping, and the home of Joseph, the man who picked up the body of Christ and laid it in his own tomb. Samuel of Arimathea or Rama told David the story about the man that had nothing but one ewe lamb and the rich man stole it from him. Samuel asked David to judge that man and David said he should get the death penalty. Samuel then told the King: You are that man. It was true that David had Uriah killed so that David could have his wife. By getting David to pass his judgment without identifying the situation it was possible to get a just appraisal of the crime without any justification of it. Samuel trusted the system of self judging and had no fear of the King's reprisal on him. He was in no danger when you consider how a man's conscience works. Samuel was operating on what Jesus calls the Forgiveness Doctrine.
Forgive is a composite of two words; for and give. For, meaning: before. One, forgiving another, means before one gives the punishment due to the culprit, one gives the thought of the deed to the culprit for his disposition. The thought of the deed is on the culprit's conscience for his disposal. There are only two ways for that thought to be disposed of, and that is to justify it or make it right. The victim should for go to give the punishment.
The thought of that deed was not easily justified in David's mind. The man was dead so he couldn't make it right to him and he couldn't justify it. David was in a hell of a straight. He would not be likely to compound his misery by doing anything to Samuel for telling him off because that would have to be disposed of also. No Samuel was in no danger. Samuel could do that because he understood how God thinks. That is: how man can be made to judge himself.
In the Trinity, the judicial department is vested within each man himself. It is designed so as to make a man punish himself more than any other man could. David suffered for the rest of his life for what he did to Uriah. Had David been punished by man's law, like taking his driver's license away from him for three months, he would suffer much less because then he could feel that he had paid his debt to society. Man's punishment would be a justification.
When Jesus said to turn the other cheek, He meant to allow the culprit to satisfy his vengeance so that when he cools off and thinks more rational, he will have more trouble with the justification of his actions. Certainly it is harder to justify two blows than one. Perhaps in the cool day light his judgment will cause him to believe you had the one blow coming, but not two blows. In that case if he can't justify the other blow, he is obliged to make it up to you because he can't dismiss the thought of the deed. By that, he owes you. Keep it that way because if you do, he will be as easy to handle as King David was in the hands of Samuel. That is what Jesus meant by forgive them. I like it The culprit is in a state of hell. Hell is he + will; he'll to hell. He'll worry about his tormenting conscience himself.
The Birth of Slavery
Jesus Christ, being executed after the magistrate said there is no fault in him, is unusual and must raise questions. To oversimplify by saying they were evil and we are good is merely a disclosure of our conceit.
The trial of Jesus Christ was conducted under Roman law which is the same as our United States law. The law and legal procedure have not changed. We wouldn't have patterned our law after Roman law, if it wasn't good.
This study is to reconstruct the picture of what happened. It is necessary to study the most insignificant facts as they are revealed to us in the Bible to complete our understanding.
All of the charges against Jesus were dismissed by Pilate, except the charge of being the King of The Jews and that accusation was posted in three languages over his head on the cross. Pilate made it clear that Jesus was put to death because of being the King of the Jews and not for saying that he was the King of the Jews and yet that term was used only once in the Bible prior to the trial. It was by the wise men that found him as a baby in Bethlehem.
The wise men from the east came saying: Where is he that is born King of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the east and are come to worship him. After Christ's parents fled to Egypt when Herod killed all the babies, we read in the same paragraph, Matthew 2:17: Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.
The names Rama and Arimathea are the same. Rama was Samuel's home near Bethlehem. It was Joseph of Arimathea or Rama that picked up the body of Christ and laid it in his own tomb. This Rachel of Rama or Arimathea was the wife of Jacob, of whom God called Israel, and she was the mother of the Joseph that was sold into Egypt as a slave. Rachel was buried there at Bethlehem in B.C.1732.
Rachel's son Joseph was sold as a slave into Egypt because his brothers despised his dream in which his eleven brothers were referred to as STARS, and his father Jacob as the SUN. The Star of Bethlehem was a surrogate Joseph out of Jacob. God said in Numbers 24:17, I shall see him, but not now, I shall behold him but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Scepter shall rise out of Israel. See Matthew 1:16 And Jacob begot Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.
In that dream of Joseph, the eleven other sons of Jacob, were stars. So the twelve sons of Jacob, that made up the twelve tribes of Israel, were the twelve stars to start the twelve tribes of Israel.
At the time of that dream, Rachel had been dead three years, and her son Joseph did not go to Bethlehem to be over her to fulfill the dream as it was interpreted by Jacob: "Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth?" Joseph dreamed that: "The sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me." So the Star would have to be a surrogate Joseph out of Jacob; such as the father of Jesus. Joseph was the STAR the wise men followed at Bethlehem and his father's name was Jacob.
In the Second Chapter of Matthew the word "east" to describe where the wise men were from, is from the Greek word meaning uprising. The direction east may be implied by the direction of the uprising of the sun. For the uprising of the
Son of Man, the same word might be used. The same word would be used for a political uprising or an uprising against the military draft etc. If the wise man were from the east (uprising) and they saw Joseph in the uprising and after they left Herod, found Joseph (the Star) and went into the house with him (the Star) where he (the Star of the uprising) showed off his young son as any father might do, this story is understandable. However: if these wise men from the east saw a star in the east or further east than east, wouldn't they go further east? If that star was on an east to west orbit, what would make it stop over that house without burning it to a cinder if it was close enough to determine that it was directly over that house? If the star they saw outside the house wasn't Joseph, where was Joseph? Why does St. Luke mention Joseph and not the star? Why does Matthew mention the star and not Joseph? If the star could be seen by the wise men, why couldn't it be seen by Herod? Why did they refer to the star as his star when Jesus didn't want any property? Why was all of Jerusalem troubled with Herod? Was the star there for two years without Herod seeing it? He killed all the children from two years old and under. Why all the girls also when Herod knew that the King of the Jews was a boy?
If we could consider that a star could be a man, much like a movie star of today, it would be possible to answer all of these questions and how it was legal for Herod to kill all those children.
After Joseph told the dream to his father, and to his brethren his father said unto him, What is this dream that thou has dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth? While it would be possible for Jacob and Joseph's eleven brothers to bow themselves down to him to the earth, as they did when they went to Egypt to buy corn. It is not possible for his mother Rachel to bow herself down to him to the earth because she died three years before he had the dream. Therefor it must have been a surrogate Joseph to be over Rachel where she had bowed down at Bethlehem. The Joseph was out of Jacob as Matthew 5 genealogy will indicate. What has the first Joseph to do with the Second Joseph you might wonder.
As you know the first light in the Bible was named Jacob who was called the SUN in that dream. Jacob was called Israel by God and he was the father of the twelve tribes of Israel. Jacob was the first prophet in the bible to give people instructions on how to live, especially to his sons. All of the thoughts, and doctrines principles, and teaching of the old Testament are devoted to Jacob, or Israel as God called him. They said the God of Jacob; The God of Israel. Israel and God had great hopes for his twelve sons, the twelve tribes of Israel, but Joseph, his favorite son, who was to carry the ball, made a terrible mistake which Jacob endeavored to correct.
I am sure you know the story of Joseph and his coat of many colours. Jacob made Joseph a coat of many colours and when Jacob gave it to Joseph it made all of his brothers envious. Because Joseph seemed to be the favorite son, they hated him.
Joseph had two dreams in particular. In one, he said his sheaf stood up and their sheaves made obeisance to his sheaf, and in the other he said he dreamed that the son and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to him. This enraged his brothers to a point where they wanted to kill him. When they got him away from their father, they decided to kill him.
The oldest of the brothers, Reuben, said instead of killing him, throw him in a dry well hole and his blood won't be on us when he dies. So they threw him in the pit. Reuben didn't want to kill him. Reuben expected to come back to get him and take him to his father.
Judah didn't want to let him die in the pit when he could make a buck on him, so Judah talked his brothers into dragging him out of the hole and selling him. They sold him as a slave. They sold him for twenty pieces of silver or twenty bucks. Judah is the same as Judas in the New Testament. It is the same name. Judah is the father of all Jews. All Jews are descendants of Judah or Judas.
Joseph was taken to Egypt where he became the slave of Potipher who was the chief executioner for Pharaoh. Potipher took a liking to him and made him head of his household . During the course of his chores, Potipher's wife took a liking to him also which was embarrassing for Joseph. She lied to her husband about Joseph because Joseph would not yield to her desires. Joseph was then thrown into prison because Potipher believed his wife.
There Joseph interpreted some dreams, one for the baker and one for the butler of Pharaoh. Of the dreams he interpreted, one was good and the other was bad. He said the butler would return to his position and the baker's head would be cut off. Well, both of them came true. When the butler got his job back he forgot about Joseph until Pharaoh had a dream. Pharaoh couldn't understand the meaning of his dream. He dreamt that seven fat cows came out of the river and then seven lean cows came out and the seven lean cows ate up the seven fat cows but they were just as skinny as they were before they ate up the fat cows. The Butler finally remembered Joseph and Pharaoh called Joseph who interpreted the dream for Pharaoh and Pharaoh was very pleased with the interpretation so Pharaoh put Joseph in charge of collecting all of the grain and laying it away against the famine.
When the famine came and Joseph's brothers were hungry, Jacob decided he would send them as ambassadors to Egypt to buy grain for their people to keep them from starving. They went to Egypt where Joseph controlled the grain or what the people of the world needed most at that time.
Joseph accused them of being spies and threw them in prison and took one of the ambassadors as a hostage. He said he would execute them if they couldn't prove they were innocent. He held Simeon as a hostage and sent the others back to get their younger brother Benjamin. He said if they didn't bring Benjamin back, he would know they were spies. If they brought Benjamin back they would be acquitted of the spy charge. Food was still short and they had to go back. At that time Jacob reluctantly allowed Benjamin to go to Egypt. Then Joseph revealed himself to his brothers and said he had no hard feelings for them. Jacob came to Egypt and things seemed to be well with the children of Israel.
Joseph gave his brothers freely of the Egyptian corn but he made the Egyptians pay dearly for it. First they had to give their money and then they had to give their land and then they had to give themselves as servants to Pharaoh in order to get corn to stay alive. This was not a nice thing to do. Jacob didn't like it. He knew what this kind of abuse would lead to.
As Jacob died he made them promise to take him and bury him with his first wife Leah and not with his second wife Rachel who was buried at Bethlehem.
Jacob gave instructions to all of his twelve sons from his death bed and it appears that he gave the responsibility for the problem unto Judah. The instructions to the surrogate Joseph, the father of Jesus, are in the blessing of Judah because Joseph was a descendent of Judah. Jacob could see what was coming and Jacob knew that when Joseph put the children of Egypt into bondage to buy food, and after Joseph and the Pharaoh died, the Egyptians would certainly figure a way to change that.
In the first chapter of Exodus we read; Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph. And he said unto his people, Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we: Come on, let us deal wisely with them, lest they multiply, and it come to pass, that, when there falleth out any war, they join also unto our enemies, and fight against us, and so get them up out of the land.
When Moses came into the picture the Egyptians had managed to reverse the thing that Joseph had started in Egypt. Joseph started slavery in Egypt. He started it out of being a slave first. Joseph was a slave and then he put the Egyptians into slavery. After Joseph died, the Egyptians reversed the slavery so that the children of Israel were the slaves. Moses found this foul situation. Moses also found that Jacob had already laid out the plan to bring about an end to the slavery which Jacob knew would come about.
The problem was that Joseph did not listen to his father. Therefore it was necessary to replace him. Moses said there will be a new Joseph. A star out of Jacob would be the same thing because Joseph was that star of the dream, out of Jacob. Therefore that star out of Jacob was Joseph come back as a slave to correct the mistake that was made the first time. He would have to start from the same position as the first Joseph started from in the first place, as a slave.
Probably the main reason why Roman law endured was the fact that the Romans always honored the laws of the countries they conquered. It was much like the United States honoring the laws of the states The Roman law being comparable to the United States law and the state's laws being comparable to laws of the countries that Rome conquered. Under that system the Romans were obliged to follow the laws of Palestine, which were the laws of Moses.
Among those laws of Moses was a death penalty for deserters from a military army. That law was given in the 14th chapter of Numbers, when the children of Israel deserted God's call and they were spared from the death penalty for propaganda reasons only as Moses requested. Jesus would be executed on the charge of desertion from the Roman Army; Desertion at one year of age!
Among the laws that the Romans might not like as well was the law that said when a man is drafted, he must be given a year to be with his wife and comfort her. According to God's law, when Joseph and Mary were married, Joseph had a year before he would have to go into the military or the draft that I call slavery. I use the term slave for draftee because. I am taking the term "SLAVE" from our National Anthem where in the third verse the British impressed fighting men were referred to as slave.
When Joseph came back from his year, and Mary was with child, he was to go back in the army. He also quoted God's marriage law. When God puts man and woman together let no man put them asunder. Therefore Joseph and Mary were as one and they would remain as one in the army. Mary and Joseph were therefor in the army together, and as Jesus was born, Jesus was also a chattel of the army.
During that time, they couldn't send Mary and the babe to war with Joseph so Joseph was obliged to stay back in town with his wife where he did carpenter work for the army. Joseph got out of the fighting in that way.
During the course of the next two years wise men, or wise guys as we would call them today, saw that as a way to escape from the military service, so they brought their wives and had babies. It is understandable that Herod did not find out about this until about two years had gone by. When these wise guys were asking for, "He who was born the King of the Jews", Herod became concerned.
Roman law was exactly the same as American law today except that Herod then would be called the President today. The word Herod is from hero. It is a participle of hero, or a hero perfected; a proven hero + d Herod. Today we call them President.
The President today is the only one who can give an exemption from military service, as Herod at that time. But here is a child, newly born, Jesus, lying in a manger, giving an exemption from military service, to his father, and to all of the other men that were following his father. Therefore Jesus was indeed a king or "King of the Jews", because he had the same power as Herod the king. Therefore they called him the king of the Jews which he was; literally the King of the Jews.
Herod being a military man, took military measures to correct the situation. Under military law the officer in charge of a campaign is not held accountable for the spending of lives during a campaign, for the purpose of the campaign. The military campaign was to get those fathers back into the army without their wives and babies. The babies were in the army, and they were under jurisdiction of the army. They were considered expendable to the military cause. So Herod spent the babies. He killed all of them. It was perfectly legal then and it would be legal today. The fathers got back in the army and the program came to a screeching halt.
However, Joseph took the child and his wife and went over the hill into Egypt. We call that desertion today. Desertion from military service carries a death penalty, as put on it by God himself. So the penalty for desertion, that Jesus died for was a penalty set by God himself.
Back to the trial It was recorded that before the trial, they had Jesus remove his clothes and they put a scarlet, red, robe on him. The Roman military uniform was a scarlet, or red, robe.
They asked him if he was the king of the Jews. He said; Thou sayst that. In legal jargon that means the burden of proof is on whoever said it. So the burden of proof was on Pontius Pilate who said it.
To prove his point, Pontius Pilate sent Jesus to Herod who happened to be in Jerusuleum at the time. Herod put a crown of thorns on his head, arrayed him in a gorgeous robe which, when it was taken off, according to St. Mark was purple. The gorgeous purple robe we know is the king's robe. When Jesus came back to Pilate wearing the gorgeous purple robe and the crown on his head, Pilate was to assume, knowing that Herod put the robe on him, it was Herod's opinion he was the King of the Jews. Jesus was executed on that evidence.
The point that Jesus made by this was not in vain. The point was that the accused had a right to face his accuser and to question the witnesses against him. Under the law of Moses, anyone giving false testimony in a court of law would be punished for a crime of which they gave the testimony. If the punishment for desertion from the army is death, and false testimony was given, there must be a death penalty on the person giving the false testimony.
The error in the trial was not bringing Herod into the courtroom. As you know, today the President is not brought into the courtroom when a boy is charged with not answering the military draft, although it says on his summons to be drafted: Greetings: from the President of the United States. If you are charged with not answering the President, you have a right to summon the President into court and question him about anything you like. Under this same precedent, Herod was to be brought into the courtroom so Jesus could cross examine him.
If Jesus had been able to cross examine Herod it would have gone like this.
Jesus would have asked Herod: What is this robe?
Herod would have answered: It is my robe.
Jesus would have said: What does that prove?
Herod would have said: It proves that you are the King of the Jews because you are wearing the king's robe.
Jesus would say: Do you know I am the King of the Jews?
Herod would say: Yes.
Then Jesus would have said: Is it true that you had John the Baptist's head cut off, because Salome danced and you promised her anything? At this, there would be an objection and the court would probably sustain it.
Jesus would have said: You are aware that John the Baptist was the son of Zacharias?
Herod would have said: Yes.
Jesus would have asked him: Is it true that you thought that Jesus was John the Baptist returned from the dead?
Herod would say: Yes.
Jesus would have asked him: Do you know that the King of the Jews was the son of Joseph and Mary?
Herod would have said: Yes
Jesus would have said: Now if you can't explain to the court how this same person was the son of Zacharias and the son of Joseph at the same time, you are guilty of giving false testimony.
The result of the trial would be that Pontius Pilate would order the King's execution, and Jesus would have gotten off because they had no evidence that Jesus was the King of the Jews.
They even went to the extent of having his mother brought to the execution in hope that Jesus would cry out to her as he sank into a weakened condition. By doing this they could connect him to her and justify their action. They had no justification otherwise.
It might appear to some that Jesus did weaken before He died by his last words: My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? He did not weaken at all before he died. He started quoting the 2nd Psalm, which describes all of the things he was feeling on the cross and that would be naturally followed by the famous 23rd Psalm which is still read at all executions because it was on the mind of our Lord as he died. "The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. etc." St. Luke mentions that: And the same day Pilate and Herod were made friends together: for before they were at enmity between themselves. Naturally they helped each other. Pilate didn't make Herod testify and run the risk of being caught in false testimony and Herod proved Pilate 's accusation. That started a conspiracy that exists today.
His father, Joseph was able to come in and claim his body because by that time Pilate was disgusted with himself for allowing the mob to get away with insisting that a man be convicted of a crime that he did when he had no control over it. It does not make sense to execute a man for a crime that he committed when he was unable to do anything else. While it is true that Jesus did go over the hill when he was one year old, it is absolutely inconceivable to think that he could have done anything else.
Now this is the precedent that was set up to stop the US military draft, because the law of the military draft which was set up by Moses is completely ignored. This Joseph of Arimathea, the father of Jesus was a lawyer, or counselor. He set up this brilliant legal maneuver that has held up in court recently.
It will enable anyone that is drafted to subpoena the President into court and of course that will be the end of it. Now Joseph, the father of Jesus also taught his son. Many times it records Jesus as saying that a son could do nothing but that which he was taught by his father. So Jesus was also a lawyer.
It records, in the 17th chapter of Matthew, a trial at which Peter was on trial and Jesus was representing him. You probably won't understand this until you have had the groundwork studied, so you can understand what they are talking about. But I'll read the trial first and then the trial will lead us back to the law and the foundation for it. And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free.
The tribute that they received is front the Greek word Didrachma. The half shekel is expressed in the Septuagint as Didrachma. The didrachma is a coin the value of a day's pay for a soldier. It is a very small coin. In the law of Moses, relating to a military draft the half shekel (Didrachma) is mentioned as the RANSOM you may pay to be excused from military service.
So they were saying that Jesus was paying the ransom money to be out of military service. Peter lost the argument. But: When they were come into the house. That was a courthouse. It doesn't say courthouse because it stands to reason that when they are going to have a trial in a house, it is called a court house.
Jesus said, questioning Peter on the stand: What thinkest thou Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? Now this second tribute was the Greek word kensos, the same as census; an enrollment. Peter said unto him, Of strangers. Jesus said unto him, Then are the children free. Jesus was saying that the children of God are free because they pay the tribute to be free. It is legal under the Law of God and it was accepted by the Romans.
At this point I suppose he would have won the case. But Jesus continued one more sentence and in this sentence he is giving the instructions we must use today to control this military draft. He said: Notwithstanding, (Not by fighting them off physically) lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, (Or I see said the blind man, but he didn't see at all. See meaning understanding; get understanding) and cast an hook, (This has been done. Cast Captain Hook in the play called Peter Pan) and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee. (The fish that first cometh up was General Lewis B. Hershey, Director of The United States Selective Service who took the bait and stated in his book that the first and second verses of the first chapter of Numbers refer to a military draft. The piece of money is called a stater in Greek. A stater will state your military draft status.
The piece of money was called a half shekel by Moses and then a didrachma in the Septuagint, and then Jesus called it a penny which has the image and the superscription of Caesar. The first American Caesar (Seizer) has his image and superscription on our penny or half penny.
The first American penny was actually a two cent piece, minted by our first Caesar and was inspired by the 127th and 128th Psalms. The two arrows crossed on the coin are referred to in the 127th Psalm: As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemy in the gate. The arrows are crossed behind the Herodian shield. Around the outside of the shield are olive branches, and they are expressed in the 128th Psalm: thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants around about thy table. And the Psalm ends up: Yea, thou shalt see thy children's children, and peace upon Israel.
The 1864 Webster's dictionary of the same year defines a penny as an English coin; the value of about two cents so that coin, a two cent coin minted in the United States in 1864, would be a penny. The penny we have today would be a half penny comparable to the half shekel of Moses' law. To shackel is to pen up, so a penny is one who has been penned. Both the man and the coin are called shackle, to God and Country and each have one. Divide: one penny to country and one penny for God.
When General Hershey, the fish, cited the book of Numbers as being a military draft he skipped the third verse of the first chapter of Numbers where it said: From twenty years old and upward, all that are able to go forth to war in Israel: thou and Aaron shall number them by their armies. We were drafting 18 and 19 years olds and God comanded 20 years old and upward so the subject of the younger boys was embarrassing to the General. So he skipped all the way over to the 46th verse to find the number of men as six hundred thousand three thousand five hundred and fifty men which he said were subsequently registered, inducted and sent off to war. The fact is as you will see when you continue to read the book of Numbers, there were only two men to go forth to war. And God set a death penalty on the rest of them for desertion. There were no men drafted and there was no war. By Hershey's standards that military draft call would be a miserable failure, but he never bothered to read enough to find that out. Therefore: he was a fish; a sucker who took the bait left for him to find. It was a bigger mistake for Hershey to give the number of men. That particular number of men shows up again in the book of Exodus where it describes what went on with them. Earlier in the book of Exodus; in the 30th chapter, 11th verse we find the military draft law.
This is the military draft law: And the Lord spake unto Moses saying, When thou takest the sum of the children of Israel after their numbers, then shall they give every man a ransom for his soul unto the Lord, when thou numberest them; that there be no plague among them, when thou numberest them. This they shall give, every man that passeth among them that are numbered, half a shekel after the shekel of the sanctuary: (a shekel is twenty gerahs:) an half shekel shall be the offering of the Lord. Everyone that passeth among them that are numbered, from 20 years old and above, shall give an offering unto the Lord. The rich shall not give more, and the poor shall not give less than half a shekel, when they give an offering unto the Lord, to make an atonement for your souls.
The term, "everyone that passeth among them", is like the poker term, pass to be out of that hand. You are out of the game then but you do pay the ante.
And you give a half shekel after the shekel of the sanctuary, means: If one is after sanctuary from the military draft he must shackle himself to God's service for life. There is no provision for termination of service to God The shekel is divided in two halves. One to the Seizer and one to God. The shekel to the Seizer and the Shackle to God. Or as Jesus said: Render the penny to Caesar and unto God; You be a penny of God.
When he says a half shekel shall be the offering of the Lord: That is referring to the time when Peter was asked: Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. That half shekel is expressed in the Septuagint as (didrachma) which this tribute came from. Jesus not only paid this "RANSOM" but He said that He would "give his life a ransom for many".
While most of the judging of men is done by themselves, and in normal people, that is all that is needed to control their behavior, the Bible does specify certain crimes that are to be dealt with by courts. In those cases the Bible sets the punishment and way to determine guilt. There are enough different crimes listed so reasonable men can determine the general trend of those not listed.
We notice by the words of Jesus Christ, that his intention is to graduate more toward the personal control and away from controlling people; more freedom as people learn to handle freedom. His efforts were toward establishing the attitude in the masses that makes freedom practical. He gave his life for the Ransom, described in God's Law, by Moses. Maybe it is because He felt so strong about that particular abuse that He gave His life to stop it.
There are crimes against us where we are not to forgive but kill the culprit ourselves. They are spelled out in the law of Moses and Jesus did not say that they do not apply. He said they do all apply. One of these is found next to the Ten Commandments Exodus 21:12 He that smiteth a man, so that he die, shall be surely put to death. And if a man lie not in wait, but God deliver him into his hand; then I will appoint thee a place whither he shall flee. But if a man come presumptuously upon his neighbor, to slay him with guile; thou shalt take him from mine altar, that he may die.
That is to say that if anyone comes after you to put you in a situation where you will die, God will appoint you a place to flee to like the Ransom from the military draft. If that does not work, kill them with God's blessing.
The Ransom Law that Jesus gave his life for, is to prevent the complications brought on by altering the instinctive peaceful nature of men. By nature man is peaceful and compassionate, but when it becomes necessary for him to be used as a vicious killing machine, certain changes must be first made in his nature, to prevent confusion in his system of justice. It is hard to love your neighbor at the same time you are trying to kill him. It seems that loving and killing are not consistent. No amount of persuasion or force is going to change a man's sense of justice because it comes from the Holy Ghost. When the man can not rationalize his position of killing men he loves, he is faced with two choices. He can do as Moses did before it was revealed to Moses that there is a better way. Moses killed the man and buried him and that was pleasing to God but a bit costly and difficult for Moses in a society that frowns on that. Moses discovered a better way to handle those who would make slaves of you than to kill them. He gave the Ransom Law and revealed a way to force the slavers to follow God's Law. Jesus Christ devoted His effort, as the executive, to bring about the enforcement of the Ransom Law.
Whenever any action is taken to change man's sense of justice, there will be serious problems. Either man will not change but become more resolute and stubborn or he will accept the easy course of abandoning his own sense of justice in favor of the surrogate. With a surrogate, the man has no conscience and is controlled by force alone. All actions of that man, when force and supervised control are missing, will be uncontrolled. There is no reason to maintain conscience when the job can be done better by a professional surrogate. The ultimate result of using a surrogate conscience is a habit of shirking all responsibility.
With the Ransom Law men are forced to dedicate themselves to the call of God. Whenever they are numbered to go forth to war, they must be given a ransom. Ransom is from two words; ran and sum. It is a sum that you may pay because you ran from the call. A military draft call may or may not be in the interest of God. If it seems right to fight, one must do what is right and fight. But if it seems wrong to fight, one must have an opportunity to do what is right in his own eyes. Ransom is that opportunity to serve God, rather than serve man's call to battle. Ransom is not an escape from responsibility because in order to pay it the man must dedicate his life to serving God.
It is the amount of the token that will do it. The size of the coin gives a man something to compare his own value to. If a man pays one cent to be free from a military draft, the money can not be considered justification unless that man figures that he is actually worth less than one cent. Vanity makes this unlikely. No man likes to believe that he is worth less than one cent. However if he does not pay the one cent to get off, how can anyone question his dedication to the cause? If he could have gotten off by paying one cent, how can anyone dispute his bravery? The question of his dedication and bravery have been proven beyond question. The comforting knowledge of knowing this will make him a fearless warrior in combat. He will do as he is told and not try to play at being a hero foolishly. He will feel that his free choice makes him part of the army and it will be his calling and he will like fighting for what he believes in fighting for.
On the other hand, if man is not given the Ransom but is forced to enter the military draft and he does not resist, there will be an entirely different feeling. The threat of jail for those who do not go may be why the man went into the military draft. If so, he cowered to that threat and is already on his way of forming the habit of cowering. He who cowers is a coward. Once he faces up to the fact that he is a coward, he will surely repeat the performance in the face of danger, as he was trained to do. That training is good, for the men on the enemy's side. Have we forgotten the lesson in our National Anthem which is: Free man are brave and slaves will have the "terror of flight or the gloom of the grave.
That third verse of The Star-Spangled Banner is missing from most copies now because the enemies of FREEDOM are afraid, of Americans expecting to be free. Lest you forget I will quote the third verse again for you, but first try to remember it was written during the battle with the British who were accused of seizing American boys and forcing them to fight for England. "That band" is the British. "A home and a country" were a boy with English descent's home land that has left England and become America and the country of America that has left the English Commonwealth. A home and a country should leave us no more, means the boy's homeland and The United States shall leave England no more, if they had won the war. The slave is a drafted soldier and the hireling is a man that is fighting for the money in it and Key is saying that they will run or die because they are naturally cowards. Four times; in each verse, Key repeats the main theme of the poem as free men being brave men. Key said and for years true Americans sang: "O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave."
As one opens the Bible to the Book of Numbers and reads the first three verses, the idea of a military draft is so obvious it can not be overlooked or dismissed. Some pacifists would quickly turn to some pretty part of the Bible and try not to face up to the truth, saying: God would not call a war. A military man with a burden to justify would see it as an argument to support his position. That point made, leaves very little reason to continue. The military man's reason to quit reading is more logical than the pacifist's reason to quit reading. One has already made his point and the other has already lost his point and is afraid of losing more. Since there are other places in the Bible that say not to kill, why not dwell on that? I suppose most people are afraid of finding something they don't like in the Bible, and it is heavy reading; more work than play.
If one was to read straight through as most people do, the fact that the war was not fought might be veiled by a lot of seemingly insignificant and irrelevant facts, names and boring details, that tend to cause the reader's mind to wander and swim in a confused blur. Moses intended it to be that way, We call it: Separate the man from the boys. The secrets are protected like with a combination lock. Each number has to be understood before the next in a particular sequence to unlock the secret.
It was important who would reveal that secret so a stumbling block was put in to force that man to reveal the necessary connecting link. The US military draft director must be that man because Moses also planned that The United States would be the chosen place to bring about freedom. The age of twenty years old and above, is in conflict with our eighteen year old military draft so that is the stumbling block needed. Hershey must avoid the best point of his argument because it is tied to that cursed age. Moses has forced him to mention the number of men that were drafted because that ties it to the second lock number in the Book of Exodus.
A similar military draft is mentioned in the Book of Exodus, along with the same number of men, same age and other pertinent facts to establish it unmistakably as the same military draft call. In the Exodus account there is one additional fact mentioned to connect the call up to the law given by God to regulate a thing like that. Can we be so stupid as to think God would fail to give us instruction? He did give us a law but the existence of that law must be veiled until the proper time and by the proper man who was the US military draft director. General Hershey revealed God's Law to me, although he was not really thinking that way.
I suppose I persecuted General Hershey as much as any man has and yet he did as he was told to do by Jesus Christ. He did good to me, his worst enemy by revealing God's Law to me. I am more indebted to him for that than any man of my time and yet there was a time when we might have killed each other. That is the wisdom of Moses and the fruit of Jesus Christ.
To understand, just read these Biblical accounts in the reverse order: The law in Exodus 30:11 - 16, then the first account of the military draft mentioned in Exodus 38:25-26 to account for the Ransom money and then to the call in Numbers 1:1 - 49.
The warning was given in the Ransom Law; "that there be no plague among them, when thou numberest them." The plague came when David numbered without the ransom, although he did follow all of the other rules that God asked for. David's military draft call can be found in the 24th chapter of Second Samuel and in the 21st chapter of First Chronicles and starts out as: "And Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel." David admitted that he had "done very foolishly" and accepted one of the three choices offered by God to make up for the deed. David chose "three days the sword of the Lord, even the pestilence, in the land, and the angel of the Lord destroying throughout all the coasts of Israel." The choices involved three years, three months or three days. Could David also have been so foolish as to forget that "one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day" ?
For the duration of that pestilence, start from the Biblical footnote for the time which was BC. 1017 . Three thousand years would be three days of the Lord. Add or subtract the three years that are missing between the Julian and Gregorian calendars. If from 3,000 one subtracts 1,017 and gets 1983 AD. This is to be 1986 in the Year of Our Lord.
Jesus mentioned this schedule in Matt. 12:40 "For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly: so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth." He speaks of two different prophesies. One was Jonas being interpreted as ( Dove ) and the other was the Son of man; Jesus and Jacob whom God called Israel. The Dove will return in this decade. The Son of man has returned many years ago.
How could anyone be so naive as to believe the three days and three nights that the Son of man would be in the heart of the earth was the time from the crucifixion of Jesus until his resurrection? That was only one day and two nights; from Friday until Sunday before daybreak; Friday and Saturday nights and Saturday. However by St. Peter's time schedule, that would be about 1500 years from the crucifixion and from the time in Numbers 14:12, when God said of Israel, His Sun, "I will smite them with the pestilence, and disinherit them, and will make of thee a greater nation and mightier than they." That was said in BC. 1490, so 3,000 years later would be 1513 on Easter morning because we know that Jesus rose on Easter morning about one and one half days after the crucifixion. How could Moses have known that the Country that holds the Light of all mankind would be discovered by the first white man on that day?
The nation that replaced the Israelites does not exclude the Children of lsrael. By this God did not go down on His promise to Israel but God added more people to that promise much like the story that Jesus told about the men that worked different amounts of time and they all got the same pay for the day.
Ponce De Leon was looking for the Fountain of Youth on that Easter morning in 1513 when Florida (Flower Day) was discovered. He would most likely record it in Spanish and then to English. Jesus Christ is Greek for Saviour Anointed in English. Certainly every young man knows that if his saviour is properly anointed it becomes the fountain of youth. Had De Leon been Greek instead of Spanish the record might have been clear to us. In St. John 4:14 Jesus said: "in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life."
As The Light of The World descended upon what was to be The United States, the red man was already here. God's first Light, called the Sun, had a twin brother who was red and who loved to hunt deer and live in the wild. Esau was his name. Esau sold Jacob his birthright for a mess of red pottage when he was starving. Our Indians are still selling their birthright for a meager subsistence if they remain on the reservations. If birthright is being a first class citizen, the Indian hasn't got it. Does giving birth with semen have anything to do with the Indian name of Seminole? Is the United States God's Country? Is the Statue of Liberty holding The Light of Liberty or Freedom?
Words are spelled differently from the Old Testament to the New. The last page of the Old Testament mentions "The Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings'. The New Testament refers to him as the Light and the Son of man. The first page of the Bible tells of two great lights, one to rule the day and one to rule the night. This was established on the fourth day and it has already recorded the existence of day and night on the first day so with the understanding that God is Smart enough not to make a day and a night again on the fourth day when there already is day and night on the first day, we are forced to consider that those two great lights are men giving light to the earth. After it says 'the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also." That checks Out because Jacob, the sun, did make the 'stars" which were his twelve sons. Therefore Jacob was that lesser light to rule the night that was before Jesus Christ came to be The Light": Of course the greater light to rule the day.
The time for the birth of Christ is mentioned twice on the first page of the Bible. In Genesis 1:19 "And the evening and the morning were the fourth day" could only mean at the end of the fourth day or 4,000 years after the time given in the marginal footnotes as BC. 4,004. The marginal reading for the time of the birth of Jesus is BC. 4. 4,004-4,000=4 ; It is that simple. The month, day and year, Moses gave in the 14th verse: "and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years
Remember that Jesus said in Matt. 11:25 that God "hath hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes". Therefore: The word "for" might be understood by a babe as the number 4. Read it that way and you have it. Four signs are who, where, when and why. Moses tells us the name of Jesus' father and grandfather, where and when Jesus would be born and why. Four seasons would be at the end of the fourth season or what would have been Dec. 25th on the Julian Calendar of His time. Four days of the Lord would be 4,000 years. And years does not signify a number so no extra years. Thus BC. 4 on December 25th.
I have already shown how in Numbers 24:17 a Star out of Jacob was the star named Joseph. The Star would have to be Joseph to finish fulfilling the dream in Genesis 37:9-10 and the place would have to be Bethlehem because his mother Rachel had been buried there three years before the dream.
The role that Jesus would play was planned for thousands of years and was designed to reverse the slavery started by the Children of Israel; in particular, Judah.
When Jesus said in Matt 17:27, to "cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up", we must remember he was saying it to Peter to whom Jesus said when He first met him in Matt. 4:19, "Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men". I don't believe Jesus was one to teach his grandmother how to suck eggs. Peter was a fisherman and caught fish with nets, infinitely more humane than a painful hook to catch fish. Furthermore Jesus said "fishers of men" so the fish must be a man.
Jesus said in Matt. 12:39 "An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth", In the Book of Jonah that Jesus was referring to: The whale was called a "Fish" and not a whale at all. It is the same fish that Jesus said to catch. As men, the word fish takes a different implication. One who draws out or fishes something like our best young men might be considered as a fisher of man. With the word fish used as a verb; as to fish, the one who fishes might be the fish or would the one caught be the fish? In the Book of Jonah, the fish has swallowed up Jonah. Jonah is a Hebrew word meaning a Dove. We know a dove is one of peace as opposed to a hawk being a war bird and those who do not follow the war or God are jail birds.
When Jesus was Baptized and "the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him" we could consider the word dove the same as Jonah.
In the Book of Jonah, Jesus was the dove called Jonah who was swallowed up by the fish called slavery or a military draft. The Book covers two 3,000 year time periods overlapping but running concurrently so Jonah would represent many men during that time. Joseph was supposed to do something to stop the wickedness that was put on him in Egypt. Instead he fled from the presence of the Lord and went down to Joppa which means beautiful. Joseph made it beautiful for himself and ignored God's task. Jonah being fast asleep was after Joseph had died and the mighty tempest was the military draft as slavery of the Children of Israel. The 12th verse: "And he said unto them, Take me up, and cast me forth into the sea; so shall the sea be calm unto you: for I know that for my sake this great tempest is upon you." David asked for that after he caused the plague by his foolishness of ignoring God's Ransom Law.
The 17th verse "Now the Lord had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights". That was when David was swallowed up by the sword of the Lord for the three days he had asked for in BC. 1017 as recorded in First Chronicles 21 and in Second Samuel 24 etc.
Chapter 2: "Then Jonah prayed unto the Lord his God out of the fish's belly," Jesus was in the fish or drafted army and it speaks about his condition. "The weeds were wrapped about my head" would mean the Bible was wound up in His heading. The word "weeds" is from the Hebrew word for papyrus which everyone is told is the word that paper comes from. That would be about the same as the Red Sea. Red is also from the Hebrew word for papyrus. The paper Bible is read so you can see how it all works.
Jesus died from the sword of the Lord because the death penalty for desertion from the army was by God and Jesus did desert when He was one year old and was taken to Egypt by his parents. There is no special treatment for the privileged few by God. All men follow His Laws and none are exempt from them.
In Jonah 2:10 it says: "And the Lord spake unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land." The tail of that fish was General Hershey who was mighty sickened or nauseous when it was pointed out to Congress that he exposed the exemption for the military draft. The letter to Hon. John R. Rarick of Louisiana was read into the Congressional Record on Thursday, June 19,1969.
Hon. Mark Andrews of the House of Representatives sent his letter to General Hershey and sent me his reply of June 24 l969:
Dear Mr. Andrews:
Thank you very much for forwarding to me, with your letter of June 18,1969, the letter you received from Mr. Tom Bondhus.
I have had previous correspondence with Mr. Bondhus over the past several months. Included in that correspondence was a duplicate of the letter which you received, referred to this Headquarters by Senator Mondale for direct reply.
Some observations in Mr. Bondhus' letter I can understand. While his letter is interesting, as you note, I do not believe that it is one upon which I can comment to advantage.
Thank you for your expression of support. Sincerely yours, (signed Louis B. Hershey) DIRECTOR
Hershey was fired soon after that. Remember Jonah is the Dove as men that are for peace and General Hershey was that fish that vomited him out.
The Book of Jonah is full of delightful little images of interesting possibilities but they are perhaps too elusive to make much out of without a more exhaustive study. However the word "gourd" ; meaning nauseous, may be an ability to gore. Jesus had gored the enemies of God during His time and the "worm" that smote the gourd that it withered was definitely Jesus as he was dying on the cross. His last words "My God, my God, Why hast thou forsaken me?" were, starting the 2nd Psalm in which He describes all His feelings on the cross and said: "I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people". That would be followed up by the Twenty Third Psalm which is read today when people are dying.
The feelings of Jonah were those of Jesus and it may be hard to understand how a man could feel that "It is better for me to die than to live", but: isn't that the same feeling that Patrick Henry had when he said: Give me liberty or give me death?
Midway between the Garden of Eden and the disaster of Christ's crucifixion, Abram was born. From Abram or Abraham, as God called him, came the Black descendants of Abram called the sons of Ishmael. Abram was renamed Abraham after Ishmael was born and before Isaac was born he then rejected his black Son and sent him off to die. The boy was black because his mother was an Egyptian.
God told Abraham to offer his only son Isaac for a burnt offering. Abraham told his son that God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering. God was pleased because he trusted in God. God provided a ram and not a lamb, Jesus was called the Lamb of God by John the Baptist.
There must be a surrogate for Abraham because Jesus spoke of an Abraham that would come after the time of Christ, who would rejoice to see Christ's day and be glad. Jesus said, of the surrogate Abraham: Before Abraham was, I am. Jesus speaks of two men named Abraham, one good man and one devil.
In the eighth chapter of St. John both of the Abrahams are described with their differences. Jesus said: "I know that ye are Abraham's seed" and "If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham". Later He says: "Ye are of your father the devil" which could only mean the surrogate Abraham who would live after Christ.
In St. John 8:44 Jesus said of those children of Abraham: "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it." Then in the 56th and 58th verse Jesus makes it clear that the Father Abraham he spoke of would be after the time of Christ.
When we consider this, it is all very true of that man we called Father Abraham. That is, millions of Americans called that man Father Abraham. He made a political promise that was destined to start a war if he was elected, so he was a murderer from the beginning. What Jesus meant about "When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it", Jesus was talking about his statement: "You can fool some of the people all of the time and you can fool all of the people some of the time but you can't fool all of the people all of the time". That was a lie because that man called Father Abraham did fool all of the people, all of the time, with his corruption of the motto from our National Anthem.
He took the motto "In God is our trust" and corrupted it to read "IN GOD WE TRUST". In the first motto, our trust is the subject noun and is, the verb. Our trust as person, place or thing can only be we as a trust for God. Our trust is in God means that we are put, as a trust, in God's service. By this motto we serve God as a trust. We get nothing from God. God gets us as a trustworthy servant. But the other motto has the verb taken out to make it mean the exact opposite. We trust in God uses the subject noun as a verb to reduce our service to God to mere confidence in the lie that God is pledging service to us. That liar has changed our loyalty to greedy lust.
When Jesus called him a devil, it was because he overruled the Supreme Court, had the Army exterminate Congressman Vallandigham of Ohio for speaking out against his dictatorial policies on the floor of Congress, stole money from the Post Office when he worked as Post Master, was the only world leader to not ratify the first Geneva Accord on how to treat prisoners of war, started a war to pay off a political debt and allowed his own assassination to make himself look good.
That devil also put a monster in charge of the Army that wanted both the Army and the Government to have a dictator. Father Abraham said in a letter to General Joseph Hooker, the day after he appointed him, "I've have heard, in such a way as to believe it, of your recently saying that both the army and the Government needed a Dictator. Of course it was not for this, but in spite of it, that I have given you the command. Only those generals who gain successes can set up dictatorships. That I now ask of you is military success, and I will risk the dictatorship." Hooker then set up the dictatorship in the Army as the first military draft. Hooker lost virtually all of his battles and was replaced about three days before the battle of Gettysburg which everyone knows was the turning point of the war. Hooker was appointed only because he was unscrupulous and would hook the boys into the military draft. This devil was the "HOOK" that would use Hooker to do the hooking.
As Jesus said, this devil, the first American Seizar, would have his image and superscription on the penny. His picture is his image and his superscription, "IN GOD WE TRUST" is also on the penny as Jesus said. Naturally his image of what he was doing, as he saw it from the 127th and the 128th Psalm and his superscription would be on a two cent piece, because during a civil war there were two sent for peace. That is, one sent from each side and he considered them both his. The two cent coin pictures two arrows crossed as in battle behind the shield and two olive branches hanging down on either side.
The term Caesar seems to come from the same source as Civil War. It was a war between citizens of the same country: The passage of the Rubicon by Julius Caesar, which commenced the civil war between him and Pompeii. Naturally citizens of the same country do not want to fight each other so Julius forced them with what we call a military draft. For that he is known as the Caesar or Seizer in English. Lincoln did the same as Julius so both men were called Seizars. That was the first military draft in the United States as it was in Rome. The Caesarean Operation is from Julius Caesar reaching into the belly of the woman called Liberty and seizing the children. In all languages it is about the same, whether you pronounce the C like K as the Germans do or slur the first syllable as the Russians do. It is still the same act of child snatching or slavery.
Giving tribute to Caesar would be serving them in their call. In Matthew 22:17 they asked Jesus: "Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not? But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites? Show me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny. And he saith unto them, Whose is the image and superscription?" In the Civil War, Lincoln did allow the tribute money but he didn't understand how much it was to be.
He took the penny that Jesus spoke of which was a coin the value of ten asses, and from the Law of Moses in Exodus 21:28-32 the value of one animal as being thirty pieces of silver or thirty bucks. Ten times thirty is simply 300 bucks.
Many people believe that Judas was paid 30 pieces of silver because it was the price paid if a slave was accidentally killed. A slave being worth about the same as an animal. While Lincoln or our seizer has both his image and superscription on our penny today, and his image of the war and his superscription on the l864 penny, he provided another Ransom which he believed was more appropriate because $300 was a sizable amount that could be seen as justification for not answering the military draft call. On this he missed the point that God had in mind completely so God arranged for the tribute money coin to be minted both for then and now. The Ransom was to be a way to force a man to make a dedication of himself to the cause and not a way to raise money.
When they asked Jesus: "Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not?", they were trying to trap him into saying that it is not right to serve in the army as giving tribute. Paying tribute is another matter. That is to pay money so one does not have to serve or give tribute. Pay tribute (money) or give tribute (serve in the army) was the choice allowed by the Romans at that time. By this trick, the Herodians were trying to trick Jesus into a position where they could prove that a difference or conflict existed between the Law of God and the Romans. If Jesus had said yes, they would insist that they didn't need the Ransom. If Jesus had said no, they would charge him with inciting treason against the Romans. By His answer Jesus pointed out that our American Caesar (Lincoln) has both his image and motto on our penny. The 1864 two cent penny was the first American coin to have the motto "In God We Trust" on it. The military draft started one year before that coin came out.
Key of David
In Revelations 3:7 Jesus said: These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, that will openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; I know thy works: behold, I set before thee an open door, and no men can shut it. Jesus being pledged to freedom, as the United States, brings to mind Frances Scott Key and video at daybreak as day-vid.
"Oh say, can you see, by the dawn's early light", after almost two hundred years that must mean understanding as to see. Can you understand by the dawn's early light might mean, by the light of freedom which is the light of Jesus Christ dawning in us.
"What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming" could also refer to the light of Israel that was replaced by Jesus and the United States.
"Whose broad stripes and bright stars", could refer to the stripes the Children of Israel suffered and thirteen stars of Israel. Jacob being the Sun and twelve stars make thirteen stars which our flag had then. You do remember the dream that Joseph had where Jacob was the Sun and Joseph's eleven brothers were stars.
Our flag brings to mind the story of Moses being laid among the flags as a baby and later led the Children of Israel through the Red Sea. Both the words Flags and Red came from the Hebrew word for papyrus. The word paper comes from the word papyrus. The Red Sea is what is read to see as understand. This poem about our flag is part of the Read See.
When Moses led the Children through the Red Sea to freedom, means, Moses is leading the Children of Israel through the Read See which is the Bible itself because it is read to see how to be free. Moses led them out of bondage into freedom as Jesus said, "Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free."
Moses proved that free men are brave and slave men are cowards, with his first and second military drafts. When the men, 603,550 of them, were away from slavery for only 13 months, they were all but two cowards. When they were away from slavery 40 years, none of them were cowards. Key is saying the same as Moses said. Notice: In all four verses of the Star-Spangled Banner, the theme is: O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
The third verse: And where is that band (meaning the English that we were fighting) who so vauntingly swore (or boastfully) that the havoc of war and the battle's confusion, a home (the boy of English descent's former home-land of England) and a country (The United States which had left England) shall leave us (meaning England) no more?
Key answers that question: Their blood has washed out their foul footstep's pollution. At that time in 1814, the English were fighting Bonaparte who had revived the forced military draft or slavery. The British were following in his foul footsteps.
Pollution is referring to God's Law concerning drafting men for military service. The English were shunning God's Poll. One word explained this poll you shun expressed as pollution. God said Take them by their POLLS".
Key was on board a British ship as the British were attacking Fort McHenry. Early the second day Key knew that the British would lose so, in the last half of the third verse of our National Anthem, he refers to the British fighting men as hireling and SLAVE. Key said: No refuge could save the hireling and slave From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave, And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
No question about it! The drafted fighting man of the British were called slave in our National Anthem. If this is not so, why do most of the copies of the National Anthem have the third verse missing? I would say it is because the 13th Amendment outlaws slavery. A drafted man must not be called a slave because that might stop their right to have and hold slaves.
The last verse says it again about freemen as opposed to slave. Key is saying that freemen will always win because God is on the side of free men. In this motto the idea is put forth that we are to serve God's call and we are not to invoke God to help us. Freedom is God's thing! We are blessed with an opportunity to join Him. Key said that we must fight if the cause is just (in God's in interest). Our trust, in that motto, meaning our trustworthiness is in God, to serve God. And this be our motto, "In God is our trust."
If we were to say that we have confidence in God (IN GOD WE TRUST) it would imply that God will help us in our war effort. If that lie were true, God would be divided to a point where He would be going in all directions at once.
Both of the wars of independence were fought to free the people from the oppression of power crazy men. The War of 1812 was fought to stop the English from suppressing our seaman. That is the same as a military draft with one difference. Instead of one bunch of thieves it was another. England was fighting France because Bonaparte was forcing men to fight against their will. America was fighting England because they were forcing our boys to fight against their will. To the men who are enslaved, what difference is it who their master is?
There is an idea that Lincoln freed the slaves in the United States but let us examine what really happened. The North first drafted under Joseph Hooker. One week later the South drafted and eventually drafted twice as many men as the North. Obviously the military draft didn't help the North. The Emancipation Proclamation was proclaimed by Lincoln to free slaves. He said: by the power, vested in me as the Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy, slaves would be freed, but only in areas that didn't stop fighting the United States. Most of the drafted men in the Southern Army were BLACK because the blacks were not free to volunteer as the whites were. Father Abraham didn't think of them as sons or even human. Remember Isaac, his only son? Even Isaac, Abraham believed was to be sacrificed by fire. When men are under fire, gun fire is implied. What Lincoln said was: The slaves in the Southern Army could be free if they deserted the army. Of course that put an implication that slaves were black because the slaves that Lincoln freed in the Emancipation Proclamation were mostly blacks.
The 1864 Webster's New Unabridged Dictionary that was being printed at the time of the Emancipation Proclamation, shows the words slave and slavery but there is nothing in the definitions to suggest that a negro or black might be a slave. It mentioned that George Washington was very much opposed to slavery and yet we know he had what they called indentured servants in his time.
The Dred Scott Decision of about a decade before the Civil War, mentions the negros as indentured servants and the ruling of the Supreme Court was that the United States had NO JURISDICTION OVER INDENTURED SERVANTS because they were chattels of the individuals. If the United States had no jurisdiction, Lincoln had no power to free them unless they were drafted into the Army and were chattels of the Army. Until the point of independence for the South was settled by the war, it would be proper for Lincoln to assume that he had the command of their army also. Lincoln only freed slaves that were in the Southern Army to encourage desertion from the Southern Army.
In 1909 The United States Congress passed The White Slave Act in which girls and women that are used for immoral purposes are called White Slaves. The White Slave is a prostitute in plain language and the children of these white slaves are called bastards. Are the children of the black slaves to be called black bastards? God forbid! The Congress didn't associate the term slave with negro in 1909. It was not until the slaves were to be called up again that foul men saw a need to divert the meaning of the term slave to something other than drafted men. A misunderstanding of the Emancipation Proclamation was an opportunity to change the meaning of the word slave.
Capitol is the building in which the Congress of the United States meets. It takes it's name from the Capitol in Rome which is the Roman counterpart. From cap or caput = a head; so called from a skull having, according to the legend, been found there by those preparing the foundations.
Calvary is from the Greek word Kranian; a skull; cranium, or a place of a skull as the place where Jesus was crucified. In the other three books of the Bible the place is called simply "the place of a skull". The literal meaning of Our Capitol is a place of a skull, the same as the place where Jesus was crucified.
A logical association of a place of a skull might be YOUR UP. Rome is also in Europe. Perhaps, in a childish language Jesus, who said God has: "hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hath revealed them unto babes", is telling us something. A place of a skull is your up or Europe. The Church was taken to Europe: Rome in particular where the Capitol is.
In Mark 15:21 And they compel one Simon a Cyrenian, who passed by, coming out of the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to bear his cross. Could the term "coming out of the country" mean leaving the country of Palestine for a place like Rome? The term "country" couldn't mean rural because from "coming out" going to the city would be backward from the logical order of having the trial in the city and the execution in the country. Whatever the phrase: "bear his cross" means, it could mean that he bore the cross of Jesus and took it to Rome or Europe. To bear his cross might mean to bear his responsibilities. To bear his cross might mean to care for his children which are the cross between a man and his wife. Don't conclude but have an open mind and be receptive for new ideas as they become clear. Initiative is the science of being able to get rid of wrong conclusions and forming conclusions loose enough to be easily changed as new thoughts arrive.
If we were to continue in this trend of thought, far out from the beaten trend of conventional thinking or copying the thinking of others, and read on in the Book of St. Luke, we might find it interesting if not informative. Picture Liberty as the bride of Christ and vision them in a process of crucifixion in Europe about the time of our wars of independence. Christ and Liberty are caught up between two thieves or malefactors which would be France and England. Both of the thieves had their legs broken and Jesus did not. That might refer to the fact that the two thieves were defeated by bone apart. Napoleon was the Bonaparte that caused all that mess in the first place. The defeat of England by the United States and the defeat of France by England was a direct result of the actions of Bonaparte. As prophesied, both of the thieves or malefactors that were on either side of The Son of Man were defeeted by bone apart (Bonaparte). The United States was not defeated as Jesus was not defeeted by hone apart (Bonapart) or having the bones in his legs broken apart.
In the conversation in Luke 23:39 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ save thyself and us. (That might be the French who helped us with their navy to defeat the English at Yorktown.)
40 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? (That would be the United States in the same condemnation as France, through the eyes of England.)
41 And we indeed justly; for we received the due reward of our deeds: but this man bath done nothing amiss. (England thought they were justified because they had done the deeds that should be rewarded by having America as her colony. In this way, this man (England) has done nothing amiss, in the English opinion.)
49 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, Remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.
This King James Bible came from England and is remembered. America had many friends in the English parliament during the War. The United States has remembered England and helped England in her wars against Kaiser, Hitler etc. The United States has used and understood the English language also.
43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise. To day = two day or day two which would be the period from the year 1,000 to 2,000. England was with the United States even though the English were not allowed to control or seize Americans. Our loyalty toward protecting England has not diminished. This is to prove that the allegiance of free men, as free countries is controlled by the will of God through the conscience of good men. By this more power is available to those following God's laws, even when they are persuaded to comply with God's law against their own will.
Children have fantasies that are inherent in their instincts. Some of these may go way back in to their ancestry and may not be understood at all by those having them. What makes a child fear an animal or the dark? Why do children have a fascination for fire while wild animals fear fire? Why do wild animals fear fire while domestic animals not fear it? A mother animal is able to properly care for her baby even if she has never seen a birth, after her own. Man does not take advantage of these instincts as much as the animals, because man has education to replace instincts. Knowledge is used to replace wisdom. Knowledge is limited by what has been taught and tends to narrow one's mind to a point where one is completely unaware of the inherent talents that dwell within.
For the most part, our present generation has been taught to ignore it's thoughts that come without being taught by schools or men. Wisdom is run down and we are taught that knowledge is everything. Yet wisdom is all encompassing and has no limits. Wisdom is the thoughts of all our ancestors from the beginning. The dreams of old, and the fantasies of today, may contain wisdom or may not. Wise men of old learned to discern if dreams had significance or not. Many nursery rhymes and children's stories have this wisdom.
James Barry wrote a play called Peter Pan that I see as satire on Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln served in the army once as captain and enjoyed being called Captain. Barry lived in England after our Civil War and no doubt felt the effects still lingering as a terrible depression in England that was set off as a result of our Civil War, in which Carl Marx and Communism got it's foothold.
Perhaps different people see things differently, but I see Peter Pan this way. when Jesus told Peter to cast an hook, Peter was the boy in danger of losing his freedom. Peter's freedom was saved by the counsel of Jesus and that is why Peter pans the Hook. The Hook is called Captain Hook because Lincoln loved to be called captain and he used a man named Hooker to hook the lost boys into his service. In this, Lincoln did what we fought England to stop them from doing.
The lost boys in the play are like the boys of today who are lost on which way to turn from the slavery called a military draft.
The Darling family lived at number 14. We know, God said: They could not draft boys under the age of twenty years old so it is for the teen agers that are drafted: Thus for teen or 14.
They employed a Newfoundland dog as a nursemaid for their children. This is the new found land and God spelled backward is dog. The dog was found in Kensington Gardens. The Vikings left the rune Stone at Kensington, Minn. in 1362.
The Neverland is the place where this imposition on children will never be.
The address of "Second Star to the right and then straight on till morning" is this: Star is implied to second. Second Star to the right course as opposed to wrong course of the first Star named Joseph. Morning is the beginning of light or light dawning. The second Star or surrogate named Joseph and the entire plan straight on till the "Morning Star" which was Jesus Christ, from the last words He spoke in the Bible.
Hook has an iron hook instead of a right hand, and he "Claws"' with it. That is, legal clause to hook the boys. Hook having his right arm cut off means, he lost the right sort of an army which was replaced by the iron claw (clause) or hook or what we call a military draft.
The crocodile that ate Hook's right arm is the dictatorship that ate up our army under Hooker. Hooker's fear was that the crocodile would eat up our whole country. The clock in the crocodile is the Communist time table of conquest and the moves they make that warn and frighten us today
The Lost Boy's underground home is like the Underground movement of today that the CIA. is working so hard to keep track of.
Wendy was a girl, brought over from England to be the mother for the lost boys, sort of like Liberty. The fairy called Tinker Bell, somewhat symbolizes the Liberty Bell that Lincoln had resurrected during the Civil War and created a fairy tale about it to get people to rally about. It was broken sounding a funeral and not ringing freedom as the myth he created stated. He tinkered with the legend of the bell.
This Tinker Bell lured Wendy or Liberty to her doom. It was a phony call to come and be deceived. The Lost Boys shot her by mistake as the Lost Boys were deceived during the Civil War into killing Liberty. However directly opposite to Jesus being betrayed with a kiss, she was saved with a kiss which was really an acorn button. Ironically it was a man named Oaks that preserved all of the accounts and tricks used to hook boys in the Civil War, along with suggested remedies on ways of how to plug the escape holes.
The Indians that Hook fought are still fighting to preserve whatever freedom they can regain. Lincoln got his captain rank in the Army by fighting the Indians.
The way that the pirates handled the Lost Boys by passing them hand to hand to Hook is still the way they handle boys. They chase them from one person to another to dissipate the responsibility among the Government's people.
In the final battle they acted as cowards always act in panic. They ran hither and thither, each thinking himself the last survivor of the crew. Some hid in the dark, only to fall easy prey to the swords of the boys.
The story ends up with Hook and the pirates being fed to the crocodile. The Lost Boys went back to normal lives and all was well.
The decree that all the world should be taxed (or enrolled) meant that they should be registered for military service. This was done as instructed by God in Numbers 1:2 "by the house of their fathers". Joseph, already having taken the year that was commanded by God in Deuteronomy 24:5, must report for induction.
This is the Law in Deuteronomy 24:5 When a man hath taken a new wife, he shall not go out to war, neither shall he be charged with any business: but he shall be free at home one year, and shall cheer up his wife which he hath taken.
In Luke 2:5 "To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being, great with child." At the end of the year after they were married, when Joseph was to return to service he invoked God's law that: Whoever God has joined together, let no man cast asunder. Joseph and Mary were one in the sight of God and must be taxed or made to serve together in the army. Normally no man in his right mind would want his new wife in the army where she would be the only woman among thousands of men. Perhaps the army assigned them an alternate job of carpenter work in town for the army, in order to let them off the base where the men were, because it is obvious that no army could tolerate one woman among thousands of men. There was no room for them in the inn, because that would make the army a whore house This word "INN" is the Greek word KATALUMA. The word "INN" is used only twice in the New Testament and both times by Luke. Once it is referring to a public lodging place but this Kataluma means a whore house. The prefix CATA on Greek words puts an evil or awesome meaning to the word, such as catastrophic or catapult. The Greek word luna is the filth of parturition; outrage, or injury, by word, or action-prejudice: injury; ruin; destruction-injury by mutilation; filth.
From the story told by Jesus of the Good Samaritan, we know that travel at that time was dangerous, so to believe that the Romans would be foolish enough to ask people to bring tax money to them is ridiculous. If the robbers didn't get the money what would prevent the tax payer from saying they did and keeping the money himself. The Romans would get nothing if they were that foolish. The taxing was an enrollment and not paying money as usually thought.
Bethlehem was Joseph's home town where his relatives lived so why would he take his pregnant wife to his home town without stopping at a friend or relative's house? Was Joseph the kind of a man that would attempt to check into a whore house with his pregnant wife, and then when refused admission, go out and put her in the stable out in back of the whore house? However: The army would be a whore house if the army was foolish enough to allow one woman to be with the men. Of course there was no room for them in the inn. That is: In the army making the army into a whore house. This, of course would mean certain death for Mary at the hands of the foul men of the Roman army, if that officer had not sent Joseph to town and assigned him to do alternate carpenter work.
When Jesus was born he would wear the Roman Military Uniform which would be as it is described: SWADDLING. The army robe is too large for a baby and it would swaddle him. An army manger, designed to feed horses, would make a suitable crib for a baby since the army would not be likely to have baby furniture on hand for such an occasion.
The shepherds were ministers much like Jesus was the "Good Shepherd" in John 10:11. Sheep men could not leave their flocks. The term night refers to the time before the Light which was Christ. When these shepherds or ministers visited Jesus, they found Mary, Joseph and the babe lying in the manger. There is no mention of the Star, but in Matthew's account they found the Star, Mary and the babe. It was these shepherds that asked for his execution and crucifixion later. They couldn't understand why Jesus was unable to protect the babies from the blood bath that Herod arranged at Bethlehem. That maneuver was arranged by Joseph and one could hardly expect Jesus to reach his full efficiency at the age of one year old. Those shepherds were too impatient and they expected too much and too soon.
People expect too much. They expect God to raise as it were, a magic wand and bring about every good result. As I pointed out this would not be in our best interest because then God would be like a dictator and we couldn't be free. To preserve the triune government, God being the Law Giver must stay within that realm and leave the executive or administrative duties and responsibilities to The Son or Jesus. We will be, after we are properly conditioned, the judges to make up the third part of this automatic government. Jesus was killed because the men demanded results before it was practical to deliver them. Their wrath upon Jesus and our condemnation of that wrath was part of the plan.
We speak of people as hawks or doves, meaning they are for a large army or a minimum size army. The hawks have names for the doves like coward, disloyal, slacker etc. The doves have names for the hawks like Gung Ho American. These two factions have been at odds with each other for some time in the United States and the enmity is increasing like a disease.
To stimulate hawk following, a song was promoted with these words: "I'm a real live nephew of my Uncle Sam". Those same hawks who consider themselves as real live nephews of their Uncle Sam, consider the doves as something less than their American brothers. According to Webster's Dictionary: A person collaterally related more remotely than a brother or sister is a cousin. A cousin to a nephew of Uncle Sam could be Sam's son or Samson.
I did not realize that Sam's son was the same as Samson until I was surrounded by a lynch mob of hundreds of people at a County Fair. I was there with a booth trying to explain how we have been brain washed into a position where no one is able to read our National Anthem. They accused me of writing it myself. They didn't recognize their own National Anthem. This happened at the Wright County Fair at Howard Lake, MN. less than a dozen years ago. The police retreated because as they said: "We don't have enough police to go against a mob like that". The mob was out of control. They burned my literature, tore down my displays, threw eggs and shouted "Lynch him".
I knew that there was only a few real trouble makers in the mob and most of them were merely curiosity seekers. Acting on this precept, I kept moving to keep the trouble makers all on one side of me and not to allow them to surround me where they could do their dirty work. This would only work for a short time but then opportunity presented itself. One of the hecklers said: "If you use the Bible so well, why don't you do as Samson did and fight this mob off with the jaw bone of an ass". At that moment I realized that the Bible said that it was a moist jaw bone of an ass but I hadn't realized until that moment what that meant by moist jaw bone. It was the jaw bone in a living ass or fool. I pointed out to that mob that General Hershey was that ass who cited a military draft exemption by citing the military draft in the Book of Numbers because the men of that military draft all took the exemption provided by God. He opened his mouth and moved his jaw to say that, so the jaw of General Hershey was moist because it is in a living ass. That ass, General Hershey, moved his moist jawbone to cite the exemption from a military draft. I literally slew that mob with that moist jaw bone of an ass
This stunned them enough so I could pass through out to the outside of the mob and head toward the midway where there were more people. When I got about two blocks from the center of where the mob started, an officer of the law grabbed me and insisted I get out of there because they didn't have enough police to go against a mob like that. It wasn't until I got home that I realized that they treated me as less than a brother so I must be Sam's Son (Samson).
It was about the same year that I sent a letter to Congress that was read into the Congressional Record on June 19,1969 by John Rarick of Louisiana in which I pointed out Hershey's foolishness. Hershey was fired soon after that.
Instructions were given to the mother of Samson before he was born, in Judges 13:5: For, lo, thou shalt conceive, and bear a son; and no razor shall come on his head: for the child shall be a Nazarite unto God from the womb: and he shall begin to deliver Israel out of the hand of the Philistines. This same reference was to Matthew 2:23 And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene. Samson's mother was the only one in the Bible that was told to do that so the story of Samson refers to Jesus. All of the 6th Chapter of Numbers is about the law and vow of the Nazarite. No razor means that there shall be no raiser other than his parents for he shall be a Nazarite; the same as Jesus was a Nazarene. Na - zar - ite means na or no + zar or czar + ite. No zar; czar; kaiser; caesar; or siezar shall possess him, to make him a slave. He must stay away from strong drinks, wine or beer. That is to say he must live a clean life, free from being made a slave, because slaves are always cowards and their judgment is warped to justify the cowardliness of their submitting to slavery. Jesus was in the army as a baby but the army did not raise him. That was by his parents.
Samson took a wife from the daughters of the Philistines. Philistines is to file as teens in defiance of God's law that said draft only from 20 years old and above. File as teens; Philistines. The filing of children for military service in the 13 and 19 year old group is against God and Samson took action to stop it.
If we think of the United States as the bride of Christ, it is true that she is a daughter of the Philistines because teens are filed by her. She learned about how Samson gets his great strength by being free, from Sam's son, Key. Key puts it in our National Anthem as the land of the free and the home of the brave.
Samson had his eyes put out so he was blinded exactly like the Americans today that are blinded and can not see God's way. One blindness may be the people not being able to read all four verses of our National Anthem.
Samson put forth a riddle: "Out of the eater come forth meat, and out of the strong came forth sweetness". He had killed a lion and later found a swarm of bees and honey in the carcass of the lion. The answer that the Philistines gave to his riddle was: What is sweeter than honey? and what is stronger than a lion? This could refer to the United States defying the English Lion and God is stronger than a lion. Freedom is certainly sweeter than honey. Esau was the eater who sold his birthright for feed when he was starving so Esau could be the eater. Esau being here in the United States as the Indian and all men meet here in the United States so one could say that, Out of Esau the eater came meat, as a meeting place and out of God, the strong, came forth freedom as sweetness.
When the Philistines gathered them together for to offer a great sacrifice unto Dragon their god, they put Samson between two pillars of the house. Dragon is the fish god. Those who file teens, fish them. Hershey was the fish that Jesus spoke of.
THE LAST WORD
At the trial of Jesus Christ there were two attorneys pitting their wits at each other. There was Jesus defending himself and Saul of Tarsus prosecuting him. In the Book of Acts, a year later it records Christ's first words to Paul or Saul as he was called then: Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? And I am Jesus whom thou persecutest.
In the 22nd chapter of Acts, Saul or Paul is defending himself and he said that he was brought up in this city at the feet of Gamaliel and taught according to the perfect manner of the law of the fathers. If we turn back to Acts 5:34 we notice that Gamaliel was a doctor of the law and a Pharisee. Pharisee is fair 1 see, or a member of the Bar.
Paul also said: I persecuted this way unto the death, binding and delivering into prisons both men and women. As also the high priests doth hear me witness, and all the estate of the elders: from whom also I received letters unto the brethren, and went to Damascus, to bring them which were there bound unto Jerusalem, for to be punished. The Bible translators agree with me because the footnotes guide us to Luke 22:66 and from there hack to Acts 22:5 from Luke, That is: The chief priests were those demanding the persecution of Jesus Christ and Paul was with them when they did it.
This was all done to demonstrate how a man can be forced to change his attitude. Philemon 1:1 "Paul a prisoner of Jesus Christ", states it quite well. Paul was forgiven by Jesus and so left with the problem of disposing of the thought of the act of killing Jesus. Paul records his first meeting which may have been a hallucination. Jesus said: It is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. That is the pricks of his own Conscience. Jesus said to Ananias concerning Paul: I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake.
After reading the writings of Paul in the Bible I was impressed, knowing that Paul was the prosecuting attorney that caused the death of Jesus. How could such a charge come over a man except by the wisdom of God; It is that wisdom of God that Jesus gave his life to advertise. Jesus transformed by perfectly logical methods, which he explained, his worst enemy into his most diligent servant. Jesus could not change Paul into a good man, but Jesus could force the good that was in Paul to come forth. The evil is still in the man and he could never be trusted because he would not know good from evil. Only the perspective of the motivation of Paul was changed to make him seem good.
Jesus said that: A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. He said that by their fruits ye shall know them. Perhaps Jeremiah put it even plainer: Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? Whether a man is good or bad cannot be changed. The only thing that can be changed is a man's perspective of his motive; his priority; his obligation or his responsibility.
James Barry said: Never attribute to your adversary motives meaner or lower than your own. By this he meant that the other man's motives are always good in his own eyes. It is his perspective of right or wrong that is misguided. The way of Jesus Christ is to guide his perspective which can be done with forgiveness. It is possible that Paul could say some good things, but it is impossible to rely on the things that Paul said as being all good.
Probably the most frequently quoted words of Paul are from Romans 13:1: Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Paul talks out of both sides of his mouth at the same time. When Paul had men and women put to death, that was ordained by God? When Paul had Steven stoned, that was God's fault; not Paul's. When Paul had Jesus crucified, he was ordained by God, was he? Paul was a devil and Jesus was demonstrating how to control the devil for good. Just because that devil could be controlled by Jesus into doing good, does not qualify him to supersede the authority of Jesus Christ himself.
Jesus, on the other hand, had never said such things. He said: Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them. But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; and whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many. The powers that he are not ordained by God as Paul said because Jesus gave his life fighting them and Jesus was on God's side.
If the powers that be are ordained by God, as Paul said, what did Jesus mean when he said? The devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and showeth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; and saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
When Jesus went back to his home town, they tried to kill him. Why would they want to kill a young man that is teaching men to love one another? Jesus read from the Septuagint, the Greek Old Testament and not from the Hebrew as many people think. However in this case Jesus added one phrase from the Hebrew scriptures that told it slightly different. The story starts out this way:
In Luke 4:16 When Jesus came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up for to read. And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where is was written, The spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.
To compare the two: To preach the gospel to the poor is the same as to preach good tidings unto the meek. The poor of Lincoln's time didn't have the $300.00 as the meek of today are forced into military service.
He hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted or to bind up the brokenhearted. The brokenhearted are those who are half hearted whom will get courage. To have heart is to have courage.
To preach deliverance to the captives or to proclaim liberty to the captives. The captives are of the baby loan (Babylon) or military draft called slavery.
And recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, is expressed in the Hebrew scriptures as, the opening of the prison to them that are bound. You may notice that Jesus added one thought to the scriptures that enraged those men at his time. It was by combining the Hebrew and Greek Septuagint scriptures to give new light on the scriptures. The Septuagint says: RECOVERY OF SIGHT TO THE BLIND and the Hebrew said: THE OPENING OF THE PRISON TO THEM THAT ARE BOUND. Both of these statements mean exactly the same because The Seventy Translators all agreed on this when the Septuagint was made. This is what Jesus was saying by reading, in tandem, the two translations which the Jews recognized at that time. His purpose was to recover the sight of the blind so that they would be set at liberty and not be bruised by being bound up in prison. The door of the prison would be opened when they could see or understand what they must do and say.
To preach the acceptable year of the Lord or to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord. That is referring to the year that men accept the Lord. The Septuagint said to declare the acceptable year of the Lord. Declare means to tell others about it as Jesus did then and which I am now doing.
Jesus healed the blind many times. A blind is a block to conceal awareness. This awareness of a thing may enter the brain by way of the eyes or by way of the ears just as well. To see is to have the awareness or the understanding.
By combining the scriptures from different accounts, the scriptures were fulfilled. That is made full or complete. This is like saying to "Get it all together". Jesus had made the point that from combining the Old Testament with the Greek Septuagint, it became clear that recovering of sight to the blind was a matter of their recovering their understanding or wisdom. This fact was indisputable and it made them angry. Not because of the truth of the thing but because of the fact that if they accepted the analysis of Jesus, they would have to think of themselves as being blind or stupid.
When Jesus said: This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears, Jesus was telling them that they were seeing with their ears to fulfill or make the scriptures full and complete. This further enraged them to think that they had been so stupid or blind.
And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth. They knew that he was right and were suspicious because they knew that Joseph sounded very good too, before the blood bath at the time of the birth of Jesus. They said, Is not this Joseph's Son? At about this time, remembering the blood bath that Herod made at Bethlehem, I would suspect that they thought of Jesus as a witch or devil come to deceive them into trusting him as they did his father. To this thought Jesus answered them, Ye will surely say unto me this proverb, Physician, heal thyself: whatsoever we have heard done in Capernaum, do also here in thy country. They didn't believe what is recorded in Matt. 17:24 where Jesus freed Peter at Capernaum. They only remembered what happened at Bethlehem when Herod killed all the babies. They said for him to heal himself from that guilt.Back to Home
