If you have followed this series for this topic from the first article, you will have journeyed through the presented precepts, build upon precepts and noticed how line upon line we painted a pathway. A pathway which leads straight into the courtrooms of heaven itself. Yes, there are courts in heaven where God will hear each case. In a small video I published for the World Prayer Alliance recently, I explained that if you are serious about prayer and intercession for our world then you are “called for Jury duties”.
Christians who have had serious exposure to the now more common Grace message will know that God is at peace with humanity, and He does not impute sin against man. They know that God’s unconditional love for everyone is unmeasurably long and wide, deep, and high and comes without strings attached. After all that’s what unconditional stands for. They know that God is not going to pour out wrath upon anyone. Believing these amazing truths as absolute Biblical facts is tremendously liberating, but it also seems to have blind-sided the same Grace – Christians for the concept that God is nonetheless still a judge. The grace message emphasises the most healing concept that God is a loving Father who embraces and welcomes His prodigal son/daughter back into the family with celebration, taking no account of sins comitted.
In other articles I addressed the fact that many religious presuppositions about the nature of God are based on our “modern” Western Justice and Legal system. This error generated the general public’s view of God as a harsh Judge who keeps a record of our wrongdoing. The Grace message is a clear break away from this legalistic view of God, and rightfully so. A God who only accepts those who will pay their debt by means of our repentance and constant repeated confessions of sins and of a Christ who “paid off” God by dying for our sin does not match the image of a heavenly Father who loves us unconditionally and does not impute (holds a record of) sin against us.
Keep in mind, Jesus did not pay the debt we could not pay to the Father by dying for us. Jesus died, and His blood was shed to forgive our debt, and to wash our debt, caused by sin, away. But His sacrifice was not a payment, it was a propitiation. As per 1 John 2:2, the word propitiation is the Greek word “hilastaerion” (ἱλαστήριον), the equivalent of the Hebrew, “Jom ha-Kippurim” (יוֹם הכִּפּוּרִים ) meaning, Day of Atonement. The Hebrew word related to the Old Testament yearly sacrifice was a covering of the sin of the people of Israel for another year. The New Testament word has the additional meaning of a carrying away, a washing away, a clearing and forgiving of debt.
If Christ paid by dying for us, then it was not forgiveness, it would be payment. Yet, by His sacrifice Christ set up the New Covenant of forgiveness, that’s why it is a Covenant of Peace.
These two contrasting views, a harsh God as Judge demanding payment, and a loving Heavenly forgiving Father, are in clear conflict with each other. The harsh judge view is also mistakenly associated with the Old Testament. But that in itself is an error, because even though sin accumulated a debt, under the Old Sinaitic Covenant the Yom Kippur, Day of Atonement sacrifice provided a covering to stay the wrath of God. This was a temporary solution only until Christ came in fulfillment of its typology to forever carry away and forgive the debt owed.
This noticeable confusion on atonement views explains the apparent divide between many of the status quo Christian denominations and those who have a more Grace based revelation of the Gospel. The Christians who hold to the loving heavenly Father truth tend to reject and throw out the view of God as a harsh judge. The God as a harsh Judge view is not only erroneously drawn from the Old Testament but is equally elicited from our modern western legal system. This has rendered a very misconstrued faulty foundation for our Theology. Now the warning applies here to “not throw the baby out with the bath water”.
A wrong basis or not, we must understand that God is not only our loving Father, but He also has and always will be a God who equally sits as judge of the Universe. The crucial question here is, by what standard does He do the judging? If God is also a Judge, then there must be a courtroom and a system of justice in place from which court rulings proceed.
If we use our modern legal system as an inspiration to give us insight how God judges cases in His heavenly court, we end up with the harsh judge view of our God. Our modern earthly judiciary, irrespective which country, is certainly not an appropriate reflection of how God’s justice system works. God’s courts do not function in the way our modern western court’s function. However, the beautifully balanced role of God as loving Father and Judge of the universe are congruent Biblical revelations of our awesome Supreme creator.
Isaiah 55:8-9 King James Version
8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
In fact, most of our current justice system is not really aimed at pursuing justice. As many law professors will concur with the statement “Ours is a system of laws, not of justice”. As a general, overarching principle of law, of course, the achievement of justice as the result of the legal process is or should be a paramount goal. We all have an ingrained sense that a system of laws without justice is bereft of moral worth. Notwithstanding, balanced, and fair justice often fails to be the primary goal.
Over the last century modern western governments across the world have taken our common law from the people and the protections it affords them. Common law was practically replaced with government-made statutory law, stripping us of our freedom by creating legal fictions and compelling performance from those legal fictions which common law did not. Once again common law is not necessarily written law. Though it may find it’s expression in documents such as the original constitution of Great Britain recorded in the Magna Carta 1215, and the Constitution of the United States with its amendments.
Some have claimed that their Constitution is a living, breathing document, and that, as such, it must evolve with the changing society that it governs. They purported that they, the body of legal intellectuals, in this process of an ever-evolving society, must interpret the organic Constitution for us, the ignorant masses. That’s exactly what the problem has been for too long. The Constitutions both the Magna Carta 1215 and the United States Constitution were written in plain English so that anyone with a fifth-grade education can understand their simple meaning. They weren’t written in complex legal gobbledegook and don’t need interpretation. The Constitutions are not a living, breathing documents. They were documents made of parchments on which were written the eternal ideas and heavenly concepts of men governing themselves, which could be preserved for future generations. Yet the common law expressed in these documents are divine in their roots, they are the inalienable rights which naturally belong to all from birth. No government can grant them to us, no government can (not legally) take them away.
Every July 4th American’s honour the signing of the Declaration of Independence. By signing the document of their constitution, the founding fathers of the United States, many of whom were Deists, pledged their lives, fortunes, and sacred honour to the premise that all men are created equal, endowed by their Creator with unalienable rights, to be secured by a government that was subject to and inferior to the consent of the governed. It goes therefore without saying that a government of the people, by the people, for the people means that “we the people” are sovereign and are in fact the government.
To our own now shocking discovery we have realised that this ideal has become a foreign concept to today’s upcoming generation. A bit like frogs in a slow cooking pan, not realising they are about to become dinner. Consequently, the concept of the government being sovereign, and “we the people” generally have no option but to submit in obedience because there is nothing, we can do about it anyway, has become norm.
In 2008 the United States reportedly had an estimated forty-five million laws of state, federal and local government. This is a far cry from the original intent of its founding fathers when the United States were the only nation in the entire existence of humanity to ever promise life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness to all of its citizenry.
The People of Israel had the Law of Moses with 613 commandments, of which ten were the much referred to Ten Commandments.
Throughout their history, lineages of hi-ranking elite Jews who secretly desired to gain control of the Hebrew people hijacked the process of the Talmudic interpretations of the Law and used Kabbalistic influence to covertly lead the people astray, thereby subverting the power of Yahweh’s Word. Kind of what we have seen in our time with Governments subverting Common Law principles by secretly bringing the people under the power of complex laws and regulatory systems.
Jesus came to set us free from this trap. He narrowed it down for us in ONE Commandment, which became for us the constitution for the New Covenant we live in now. John 13:34 …love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
As for the Kingdom of God this is the constitution of the righteous rule of God and His people. Although this commandment will have a 1001 different practical applications for every situation one day at the time, can we regulate love? And what a contrast compared to our highly complex modern-day systems of law.
I am not saying that rules, regulatory systems, and laws are wrong. Certainly not. But we have gone over the top to a level of serious extreme. The main problem is not the rules and laws, but that governments, largely across the world, (not denying that there are also good willing and honest people in parliaments and congress, hoping to do right by the people and hope to make a positive impact) function from a top down hierarchical structure and have hijacked the systems of Statute/Civil law with it’s UCC and CISG (see below).
The relevant government assumed to be in charge is at the top of the pyramid and determines what is best for the common people at the bottom without obtaining their true informed consent. The people are usually not fully informed, yet they are tricked into giving their consent. Why are the people not fully informed? Because full, transparent, and straightforward disclosure was never provided. Granted that most people are not really interested to read through large documentation about a bill a government is trying to pass. People generally remain in a passive state but only the few will take the time and make the effort to educate themselves with as much information as they can on the introduction of a new law. A government usually gets away with implementing new laws whilst the majority remains passive and uninformed about the whole thing. That’s when it is only a matter of time certain laws and regulations creep up on us choking our freedom and become the rules to adhere to.
A system of law imposed upon the people from the top down, void of the checks and bounds which the constitution of Common, Natural or Divine Law provides, makes the handful of people, who make up the government, extremely vulnerable. Why? What if the handful who make up a government are themselves subjected to huge financial interests, blackmail or bribes? Whose program will they then enforce? Whose interests will they protect then? Do you not think that it would be relatively easy for satan to manipulate his influence onto a few people who may have allowed themselves to get into compromising situations? I am not pointing out any politician in particular, but I believe that governments have largely been seized by ideologies, which have their roots in a very dark and ancient history. Although governments are not intended to harm the people, but to serve them, by default, a top-down structure of government, inadvertently will sooner or later end up oppressing the many. If satan has been able to infiltrate his agents into such a government, it now becomes the government vs the people. The people are in danger of harm. I do not believe our Governments are evil, but there are many abusers in Government. You only need to study the history of tyrants and tyrannic regimes to know how they all have the same principle in common. It would be prudent for us to have at least some insight into these facts to be better equipped to protect ourselves against the whiles of the enemy.
Ephesians 6:11 King James Version
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
One of the key tools used to by governments, judiciaries, banking, trade, and commerce of large corporations all over the world is legal-English. You see, it may come as a surprise to learn that even for countries where English is not their language, their lawyers for International Law must learn English, particularly legal English. That’s because International Law is almost exclusively set up in legal-English. It appears that this is how it became possible for a slow introduction of the ancient Corpus Juris Civilis law system into Legal-English.
Some boring but important background
CISG; The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Good (CISG) is a product of the United Nations Commission on International Commercial Law (UNICITRAL). UNICITRAL undertook the task of creating commercial laws that would unify the laws of the signatory countries. CISG is also the successor of two international commercial treaties, the Convention Relating to a Uniform Law on the Formation of Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (ULF) and the Convention relating to a Uniform Law for the International Sale of Goods (ULIS), which were both propagated under the International Institute for the Unification of Private Law (UNIDROIT)
UCC; The Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) is a set of codes that govern commercial contracts in the United States. It was created by the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws to simplify, clarify and modernize contract law within the United States.
The following paragraphs are excerpts from an article titled:
The Justinian Deception by Romley Steward
“Principles of TRUST-LAW Governance being: Master SERVANT (SLAVERY) arrangement.
Governments and its systems of law are nothing what you ever assumed.
In 1973, Whitlam, Prime Minister of “AUSTRALIA” signed us up to a private military “Roman” contracting system of governance called: “UNIDROIT”, head office in Rome. Therefore, the written language and its relationship to Private Contracts is so important to be aware of. The UNITED STATES, being the de-facto government of the United States of America, is now also a part of UNIDRIOT, under the power of Rome. DOG-LATIN (Debased Latin) appears to be the official language of the Infants: Military, infantry of Rome.
The Power of Rome, is alive and well in the modern systems of governance that govern the “citizens” of the world today but is it right? is it Just? … Or is it the system of Satan itself, a system of hidden slavery to control the masses via a private CONTRACTING system in order to forgo true Justice? being a system to remove man from the common law of the public jurisdiction in order to subject such a man to fall into private foreign contracts in order to forgo common law justice without arousing suspicion… As described in Blacks Law Dictionary under “GLOSSA”, and Justinian.
IS ENGLAND REALLY ENGLAND?
Is England and its “City of London” really “England” or the “Roman Empire”? and if such a choice exists, what official language controls the VATICAN if the Vatican holds Legal Title over England and its so called commonwealth subdivisions? (AUSTRALIA and CANADA etc.) is it the “English language” or is it the official language of Rome, being “Ancient Latin”? meaning, if you are the holder of any account rendered in Ancient Latin, (ALL-UPPERCASE-SYMBOLIC-ILLUSTRATIVE-TEXT) are you just the corporate citizen of Rome and no longer a true common law subject of the common aggregate of England, its subdivisions and the English Language? Were you sold out to the foreign Roman military enemy as a Trustee Slave or were you ignorant to the greatest grammatical deception ever known in modern history and “fell” into their trap, deceived by a grammatical masterpiece revived by the: Justinian Deception and the Roman occult?
If its not English, its not common law!
The poison in the text of the GLOSSA is now identified as: “DOG-LATIN” and has no correspondence with proper written English appearing on the same page It is a corruption that can only be agreed to. Samples of how the fraud text appears.
“This is proper English descriptive text”
“THIS-IS-PROPER-WRITTEN-SIGN-LANGUAGE-USING-THE-GRAMMATICAL-RULES-OF-LATIN-TEXT” (Identified in Article 11:147 of the Chicago Manual of Styles, SIXTEENTH EDITION.
“THIS TEXT IS DOG LATIN BEING LATIN TEXT BASED ON THE GRAMMATICAL RULES OF ENGLISH” … Notice, no hyphens: This is known as: Debased Latin: “DOG-LATIN, language of the illiterate: Blacks Law Dictionary 4th Edition”
And is noted as criminal under the English Dictionary, identified as a “Dog Latin, being a debased form of text”. Debase synonyms appear as Criminal and Immoral and Evil and as a counterfeit, along with many more declensions.
There is no jurisdiction between two separate languages appearing on one document. This is the guts of their deceptive crime: “English” and “Latin” or “DOG-LATIN” can not exist as one jurisdiction. Reference: Article: 11:147 Chicago Manual of Styles: Sixteenth Edition: Foreign Languages.”
Only a little further into this rabbit trail reveals that there appear to be three cities which have major impact on our global economy, military movement, and conflicts and wars in our world. This triangle of cities are registered corporations. They are the City of London, District of Columbia (with Washington DC) and Vatican City. Their influence on governments, politicians, judiciaries, educational institutions, food supply, natural resources, foreign/international policies, economies, media, and the money flow of most nations as well as 80% of the world’s entire wealth must not be underestimated.
I’m not even addressing the complexities of Central Banks in London City, Washington DC, and the Central Banks of most countries in the world, who all answer to the Bank of International Settlements in Switzerland and their private shareholders. The point I’m making with all this is purely highlighting the dangers of small groups of people in power deciding the fate of the masses.
How would the devil potentially gain control in this world? It would not work if we did not have centralized government control. It would hardly be possible if small communities understood the power of their own sovereignty. If a leader in a community turns out to have corrupt and evil intentions, they would quickly be identified and called to account. Representatives of reputable character and reasonable sound mind could act as jury and judge in a case of alleged corruption or criminal offence committed by one of their own.
In our current political environment involved with eye-watering amounts of financial interests makes it almost impossible to successfully call a minister or head of state to account by the people. More likely those of the people who insist on open debate and who challenge the agenda of a government are quickly branded as dissenters who either must be ignored or made to look foolish or worse, be phased out. If you were to try and make representations in a secular court, remember that you are up against a judiciary who at the core are deeply interlinked with the interests of the government, the banks, and their shareholders.
Now there are enough people out there who take the above topics much, much further. I must also issue a warning that staying scripturally sound and in tune God’s love for you and people is the anker for your soul, preventing you from following destructive ideas. One helpful principle to gage where you are headed is ask the question: “If what you are reading, viewing or listening to is getting you depressed or down, stop what you’re doing and get back in the Word and Prayer!” It is also not our goal here to bring all the dark intricacies and affairs of the world to light. I only bring relevant points up to show that we have a significant superior position far above all the foul and mundane attempts of satan to try and subdue the population of the world under his control.
Psalm 2:1-4 King James Version
1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? 2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, 3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. 4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
Ephesians 2:6 King James Version
6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
Yes, we are in Christ sat with Him, in a far more superior position. Why should we laugh together with our Lord? Because we know that through Him we already have the victory.
We are to function from this high and lofty position and take urgent matters to court. Not a worldly court but Heaven’s court. It’s right next door to where you are sat with Christ. Though I’m kind of joking I’m also very serious. We are to operate from a heavenly position. If you see an injustice done in our world, you can just pray a simple prayer. If it involves a matter solely related to you or your direct family, you can bring the situation up in one of heavens many courts. However, we are now called to bring up serious matters which involve our world, the life’s of many people and future generations. Making representations on behalf of these serious matters as stake puts you straight into Heaven’s Highest Court.
You are to wear many hats as you state your case. You are interceding on behalf of billions of people. You are presenting potential evidence against the evildoers as a prosecutor and consider the arguments of the defense. You are to consider the evidence and determine that it shows that beyond reasonable doubt the alleged offences have or are being committed by the defendant(s).
You are then to call a final verdict and judge whether defendant(s) are guilty of the offence(s). You are then to plead with the Ancient of Days, the Judge of the universe for the Courts ruling.
If guilty and agreed you are to request a Court Order to execute sentencing. I have just used protocols as they are used in a Court of Law on Earth. Yet, many of these ideas are very much usable in Heaven’s court.
There are cases where you are aware that serious offences or crimes against humanity are committed and you have no direct idea who the offenders are. You can only guess, or you may realize that this is more a case of organised crime and networking of people all over the world. Yet you may absolutely present you case and plead for heaven’s interventions that guilty person’s will be identified, located, apprehended, and held to account. God may use angelic armies, and many people and worldly courts or any means to bring about real justice. This could be an instant process, or it could take some time, what’s important is that you do your part in heaven’s court.
As weird and as foreign as this might seem to you. Scripture is laden with references to the responsibilities placed on man (men and women) to act as judges, and jury together with Yahweh in His Courts to presiding over the affairs of man and this world.
We are to take this role on and make sure our decision-making process is not influenced by our worlds concept of right and wrong, or as now clarified in depth, certainly not by a deeply flawed system of rules and laws known as the Corpus Juris Civilis (Roman Law, with its roots in ancient satanic Babylonian Master, slave principles) applied by most of the Judiciaries in our world.
We may refer to our Common Law principles such as the promise life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and the protection from harm and protection of property. Mostly our guiding light is our Kingdom Constitution; love another as I have loved you.
OUR SOVEREIGN DUTY TO JUDGE
God, the Ancient of Days calls all of us to involve ourselves in our sovereign duty to judge according to the standard set up in the Kingdom of God and accordingly present our cases before Him in His court of law. This is the point where many Christians will quote Matthew 7:1-2 and Romans 2:1 to me.
Matthew 7:1 – King James Version
1 Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
Romans 2:1 King James Version
1 Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.
But these statements by both Jesus and the Apostle Paul are not admonitions prohibiting us to judge anyone. They are the opposite. They are exhortations providing us with guidelines for the practical application when we must employ our responsibility to judge. According to the Apostle Paul it is clear that my power to judge anything or anyone is lost when I commit the self-same unwholesome acts as those whom I judge. Especially if I’m deluded to think that my sitting in judgment using the law protects me doing the judging but nevertheless commit the same acts. In the case of Jesus, the meaning of His teaching is not more obscured than Paul’s. Both messages fully agree as though one and the same teacher (the Holy Spirit) spoke through Jesus and Paul. Jesus really underlines what huge responsibility we have when we sit in judgment.
The Heart, Rationale, Motives and Mens Rea
The act of judging involves determining the “Mens Rea”, the internal rationale of the person committing the act.
In the case of criminal investigations and court hearings “Mens Rea” refers to criminal intent. The literal translation from Latin is “guilty mind.” A mens rea refers to the state of mind statutorily required in order to convict a particular defendant of a particular crime. This means that and act does not make a man guilty of a crime unless his mind be also guilty. A person may have technically transgressed a law by mere physical action, (Actus Reus) but did not posses the malicious intent (Mens Rea) at the time of the act.
We don’t know what anyone thinks unless they tell you themselves. I don’t know what was going on in your heart and mind when you did what you did. Only God knows exactly what you were thinking and what your rationale was at the time you did it. Your rationale are the conclusions drawn from a series of perceptions, beliefs and justifications, which ultimately gave reason to the behavior. Judging someone’s behavior is assuming that we know WHY they acted in that way, and in most cases is quite presumptuous. We don’t know their history, their traumas, their pain, their psychological make up, their circumstances, and the context supporting their actions. That’s why we are not to judge anyone as though we know why they act or live a certain way. Yet, when their actions infringe upon the liberties, well being, and safety of others, we might be called upon to sit as jury, and judge the Mens Rea of the person committing the deed. When we do judge we must be sure to have considered all available information i.e. evidence which may aid our conclusions. Our judging of others then must then be accompanied with the referent knowledge that by what measure I judge another, I to shall be judged using the same yardstick, should I commit the same act. If I know that I have unresolved issues, which cloud my judgment, for example, a need for vengeance, biases, and a personal obsession to consider a select someone as guilty, then these matters become the beam in my own eye. My ability to have clarity and draw sound conclusions is then hampered. In that case my judgment could cause significant harm to the person or situation I’m judging. Once again, we are called to judge but when we do, we must have a concept of the enormity of the responsibility. With that in mind one must not shy away from this call. If you understand your God given sovereignty and you are a person of reasonable sound mind and reputable character, it is your duty at times to take your place as a jury and judge the situation or person(s) for the sake of true justice, and the protection and freedom of all.
The word “Judgment” is truly an interesting one. It does not just refer to sentencing with punishment.
The New Testament Greek word is “Krisis” and the verb “to judge” is the word “Krino” and carries the meanings; separation, decision, and to condemn
We all must apply a healthy amount of judgment all day long in our everyday goings.
What do you think your duties are as you are seated with Christ at the right hand of the Father. The phrase “Right Hand” is an old Kingly term. The Hand of the King represents the authority of the King Himself.
You may use the Prayer of Victory for our World Now (UPDATED) as a tool to develop your own Prayer of intercession for the world.
Note of wisdom: Some of the statements made here are by no means an encouragement to disrespect people who work in government appointed functions. It is an absolute error to assume that they all know exactly why they do what they are doing. They themselves are often minions of this matrix of deception. Those that do know are coming to their end. Not rebellion, or arrogant confrontational behavior, but only love, truth and wisdom will encourage others towards freedom and responsibility. That does not mean you cannot be assertive. Context determines strategy.
