I like many of you have been frustrated by what we have been forced to observe as might be described as an attitude of “I do not give a damn about what you think” from our Judiciary, the Executive, the Congress, and Senate. This same attitude in a general way is seen to percolate all the way down to all branches of city governments. We might add illegal aliens to this group as many thumb their noses at our laws as well.
We are each hoping upon hope that the elections this coming November will set a foundation which will rescue some of our liberties and give rise to even greater power to We the People as we press forward. It should be obvious to all of you by now that November is a beginning point and not an end.
We should not think that the liberal opposition will just roll over for us. I expect their vitriol to be even more caustic than present. There is an interesting corollary I see emanating from the leftist of today compared to the Israelites who were rescued from the tyranny of Egypt by Moses centuries ago.
For those of you who are acquainted with scripture you will remember that eventually Israel degenerated into such a cesspool of debauchery that God cursed them and caused that they were scattered among many nations.
In the book of Deuteronomy 31:16-17, the lord revealed to the Prophet Moses what would happen to Israel after (Moses) was gone. “Behold though shalt sleep with thy fathers, and this people will rise up, and go a whoring after the gods of the strangers of the land, whither they to be among them, and will forsake me, and break my covenant which I have made with them. Then my anger shall be kindled against them in that day, and I will forsake them and I will hide my face from them, and they shall be devoured, and many evils and troubles shall befall them.”
If the Israelites had set up the most powerful nation on earth the way God had commanded them, it would have stabilized the political and economic affairs of all other nations.
Our founders were students of history and it was through a careful reading of the Bible that they discovered a whole new perspective concerning God’s plans for America. They found that what God had promised ancient Israel He had also promised to restore in “the latter days.”
In order to appreciate what God had promised the Israelites’ we have to understand that God gave ancient Israel the formula for an ideal society that could have made the Israelites the wealthiest and most powerful nation on earth.
From W. Cleon Skousen in his book, “The Majesty of God’s Law” he writes the following; “Here is the way the Lord said it the first time: “Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine.” Exodus 19:5
A little later on the Lord repeated it. He said:
“For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.” Deuteronomy 7:6.
As the Lord was in the midst of teaching the people about the advance civilization they were expected to build, he once more reminded them with these words:
“Thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God, and the Lord hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth.” Deuteronomy 14:2.
Briefly what our founder discovered was an opportunity to make the prophecy of Moses a visible reality for America as the Promises’ of the Prophet Micah declared: “But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills’ and people shall flow unto it. And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go fourth out of Zion, and the word of the lord from Jerusalem.” Micah 4: 1-2.
America was and is regarded as the New Israel or the new Zion. Jonathan Edwards, one of America’s best know ministers of the Gospel, made this statement: “God presently goes about doing some great thing in order to make way for the introduction of the churches latter-day glory---which is to have its first seat in, and is to rise from [this] new world.” Quoted by Cherry in God’s New Israel, p57. Later on page 59 Edwards make the following statement: “I think---if we consider the circumstances of the settlement of New England---it must needs appear the most likely of all American colonies to be the place whence this work shall principally take it rise.”
Thomas Jefferson wrote in 1820 “If the freedom of religion—can—prevail, the genuine doctrines of Jesus—will again be restored to their original purity. This reformation will advance with the other improvements of the human mind, but too late for me to witness it.” Page 366 The Writings of Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Allison
Now here is where after days of pondering our present state of affairs I feel lies our present predicament, in society and more especially, in government, including the Judiciary.
For as long as I can remember the Atheists’, the agnostics’, in particular, and of late, politically correct ideologist in concert with the Judiciary have done all they can to destroy religious freedom and principle as envisioned by our founders: Law makers along with the Judiciary have lied, twisted, skewed, corrupted and in every way possible tried to remove first amendment religious principle from every facet of Lawful Society, and in Politics.
Our leaders have become as corrupt as ancient Israel. In short like the Israelites they have turned from God and “forsaken Him.” Each in their own way have re-entered that cesspool of debauchery previously reserved for the ancient Israelites. Many in the Judiciary, along with Maxine Waters, Charlie Wrangle, President Obama, and a host of others, are scrambling to justify crimes against God and country. Fortunately Americans are awakening to their chicanery, and are actively perusing means for redress at the ballot box.
Lest we follow after these afore mentioned, and like a wild ass go off braying into the wilderness and drink the dregs and terrifying curses of God as Israel have endured, we must be vigilant in demanding that our elected leaders follow constitutional Law, or be removed from office. There are long lists of grievances we must bring to the fore and they must be resolved, constitutionally.
It is time for the American People to remember our Declaration made to Great Britain and apply those same principles of reason to those elected as our servants now, and in the future:
“We have warned them, from time to time, of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us.”
“They too, have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity.”
“The history of the present (President of the United States, want a be King Obama) King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states.”
“Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security. Such has been the patient sufferance of these colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government.”
Let this be our Banner of liberty RESTORE CONSTITUTIONAL PRINCIPLE for America and her People, or go live in another part of the hemisphere. To this cause we pledge our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.
