“The rule of law is a set of principles, or ideals, for ensuring an orderly and just society… where no one is above the law, everyone is treated equally under the law, everyone is held accountable to the same laws…”American Bar Association
Hypocrisy, n. a semblance of having desirable or publicly approved attitudes, beliefs, principles, etc. that one does not actually possess. <play acting; to play a part>. For they say and do not!
God’s Rule of Law
“Keep far from a false matter; and do not slay the innocent and righteous: for I will not justify the wicked. And you shall take no gift/bribe/donation: for the bribe blinds the wise, and perverts the words of the Righteous…”Exodus 23:7-9
“If there is a controversy between men, and they come unto judgment, that the judges may judge them; then they shall justify the Righteous, and condemn the wicked.”Deuteronomy 25:1
Truth and Justice are the American Way
Superman, where are you now?
“Faster than a speeding bullet! More powerful than a locomotive! Able to leap tall buildings at a single bound! Look! Up in the sky!
“It’s a bird!”
“It’s a plane!”
“Yes, it’s Superman – strange visitor from another planet who came to Earth with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men. Superman – defender of law and order, champion of equal rights, valiant, courageous fighter against the forces of hate and prejudice who, disguised as Clark Kent, mild-mannered reporter for a great metropolitan newspaper, fights a never-ending battle for truth, justice and the American way.”
The American Way has become crooked and corrupt because the lawmakers take “legalized” bribes and gifts, in order to justify the wicked and condemn the Righteous. It perverts their judgment. They serve themselves of the people, not for the people. Instead of being Righteous, America has become like unto Sodom and Gomorrah, a nation of hypocrites! It’s time to “make the crooked straight.”
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness! …Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! …Which justify the wicked for reward/bribes, and take away the righteousness of the Righteous from him!
Therefore as the fire devours the stubble, and the flame consumes the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the Law of the Lord of hosts, and despised the Word of the Holy One of Israel.”Isaiah 5:20-24
The Weeds are Plainly Visible
“The Kingdom of the Father is like a man who had good seed. His enemy came by night and sowed weeds among the good seed. The man did not allow them to pull up the weeds; he said to them, ‘I am afraid that you will go intending to pull up the weeds and pull up the wheat along with them.’ For on the day of the harvest the weeds will be plainly visible, and they will be pulled up and burned.”Jesus – The Gospel of Thomas :57
The Practice of Lobbying is Bribery
“In politics, lobbying, persuasion, or interest representation is the act of lawfully attempting to influence the actions, policies, or decisions of government officials, most often legislators or members of regulatory agencies… The ethics and morals involved with legally bribing or lobbying are complicated. Lobbying can, at times, be spoken of with contempt, when the implication is that people with inordinate socioeconomic power are corrupting the law in order to serve their own interests…”
Lobbying in the United States describes paid activity in which special interest groups hire well-connected professional advocates, often lawyers, to argue for specific legislation in decision-making bodies such as the United States Congress. It is a highly controversial phenomenon, often seen in a negative light by the American public, with some critics describing it as a legal form of bribery or extortion.
To serve their own interests
Bribery is defined by Black’s Law Dictionary as the offering, giving, receiving or soliciting of any item of value to influence the actions of an official, or other person, in charge of a public or legal duty. With regard to governmental operations, essentially, bribery is “Corrupt solicitation, acceptance, or transfer of value in exchange for official action.” Wikipedia
The Pledge of Allegiance
As little children, citizens are taught to say this pledge while not yet understanding what it even means. Like a memorized prayer, it is recited with mindless repetition. It is a pledge of loyalty to the Flag and the Republic of the United States of America. (One Nation Under God) But is it TRUE?
“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic, for which it stands, one nation, under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all.”The Pledge of Allegiance
“…You shall worship the LORD your God and Him only shall you serve.”Jesus – Matthew 4:10
Indivisible means ‘unable to divide’.
‘Divide and conquer’ is an age old strategy for achieving political or military control. Because ‘a house divided against itself cannot stand’. This nation’s House is divided against itself like never before. An enemy has done this!
The maxim divide et impera has been attributed to Philip II of Macedonia, father of Alexander the Great. It was utilized by the Roman ruler Julius Caesar and the French emperor Napoleon. There has been a perpetual enmity between Rome, i.e. the Vatican and Israel since their beginning. While the United States had enjoyed a ‘special relationship‘ with their brethren in the United Kingdom, Rome has always been antagonistic. The pope has condemned the freedoms previously enjoyed by American citizens.
Mystery, Babylon the Great
“Come here; I will show you the judgment of the great whore that sits upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication/idolatry. So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication/idolatry: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration… And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.” KJVThe Book of Revelation 17:1-6, 18:24
A Perpetual Division
“The Lord God said to Eve, ‘What is this that you have done?’ And the woman said, ‘The serpent beguiled/deceived/persuaded me, and I did eat.’ The Lord God said to the serpent, ‘Because you have done this, you are cursed above all … And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; it shall bruise your head and you shall bruise his heel.’”Genesis 3:13-15
Christ is the Head
“…For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the congregation: and he is the savior of the body… For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.”
“And Adam said, ‘This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman because she was taken out of Man.”Ephesians 5:21-30; Genesis 2:23
Around 500 BC, Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon, had a dream which the Prophet Daniel interpreted for him. The image he envisioned was of the governmental powers that would come upon the earth from his time to the end when the Kingdom of God will be established. The last power, at the end or the feet, is a kingdom divided against itself.
“There is a God in heaven that reveals secrets, and makes known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days…”Daniel 2:28
You, O king, saw, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before you; and the form thereof was terrible/frightful.
This image’s head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass, His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.
You saw till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.
Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.
This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king. You, O king, are a king of kings: for the God of heaven has given you a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory. And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven has He given into your hand, and has made you ruler over them all. You (Babylon) are this head of gold. And after you shall arise another kingdom (Medo-Persia) inferior to you, and another third kingdom (Greece) of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth.
And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron (Rome): forasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and subdues all things: and as iron that breaks all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.”The Book of Daniel 2
10 Toes and Feet of Iron and Clay
“And whereas you saw the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as you saw the iron mixed with miry clay. And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.
And whereas you saw iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.
In the days of these kings the God of heaven shall set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.”
Forasmuch as you saw that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God has made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.”The Book of Daniel 2:31-45
A Division between Peoples
“The Lord said to Moses, Rise up early in the morning and stand before Pharaoh; and say to him, Thus saith the Lord, ‘Let My people go, that they may serve Me…
Or else, if you will not let My people go, behold, I will send swarms of flies upon you, and upon your servants, and upon your people, and into your houses: and the houses of the Egyptians shall be full of swarms of flies, and also the ground whereon they are.
And I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which My people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end you may know that I am the Lord in the midst of the earth. I will put a division between My people and your people: to morrow shall this sign be. And the Lord did so; and there came a grievous swarm of flies into the house of Pharaoh, into his servants’ houses, and into all the land of Egypt: the land was corrupted by reason of the swarm of flies.”Exodus 8:20-24
“Do you suppose that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, No; but rather division: For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three.”Jesus – Luke 12:49-52
“…Then you shall return, and discern between the Righteous and the wicked, between him that serves God and him that serves Him not.”Malachi 3:15-18
The Rule of Supreme Law
Democracy is defined as “a form of government by the people”. Politics and Democracy were popular in ancient Greece. The idea of Human Rights comes from Persia. While practically worshiped as a ‘democracy’, the United States is more accurately defined as a constitutional federal republic. The idea of a Republic also comes from ancient Greece. But what does this mean? “Constitutional” refers to the fact that government in the United States is based on a Constitution which is the Supreme Law of the United States. All governmental officials are sworn to “uphold the Constitution of the United States, so help me God” with their hand on a Bible.
“Why do you also transgress the Commandment of God by your traditions? …You hypocrites! well did Isaiah prophesy of you, saying, ‘This people draw near unto Me with their mouth and honor Me with their lips; but their heart is far from Me. But in vain they do worship Me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men“.Jesus – Matthew 15:1-9, Isaiah 29:13
Abraham – Justice and Judgment in the Law
The Hebrew Patriarch Abraham is called a “friend of God”. Because he obeyed God, He made a Covenant with him and his seed after him. Indeed, Jesus was of the “seed of Abraham,” recipient and heir to the promises. In his time, Nimrod, king of Babylon had Abraham thrown into a furnace of fire because he would not worship but destroyed the kings idols. God saved him out of it!
“And the Lord said, …Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him.
For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the Lord, to do justice and judgment; that the Lord may bring upon Abraham that which He has spoken of him.”Genesis 18:17-19
A Nation of Lawbreakers
God sent His prophets to the children of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob to teach and warn them when they were in violation of God’s Rule of Law.
“For I did not speak to your fathers, nor did I command them in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices. But this thing commanded I them, saying, ‘Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be My people: and walk in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you.
But they did not hearken, nor incline their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward. Since the day that your fathers came forth out of the land of Egypt unto this day I have even sent unto you all My servants the prophets, daily rising up early and sending them: Yet they have not hearkened unto Me, nor inclined their ear, but hardened their neck: they did worse than their fathers.
Therefore you shall speak all these words to them; but they will not hearken to you: you shall also call to them; but they will not answer you. You shall say to them:
‘This is a nation that does not obey the voice of the Lord their God, nor receives correction: truth is perished, and is cut off from their mouth.”Jeremiah 7:22-28
God gives His people over to their enemies if they won’t listen to His instructions.
A plaque of Moses can be seen front and center over the gallery doors of the House Chamber in the U.S. Capitol. There is a gallery of historical figures noted for their work in establishing the principles that underlie American law, but none as great as Moses. They were installed when the chamber was remodeled in 1949-1950. A memorial to Moses also appears at the apex of the Supreme Court Building.
God gave the Tablets of the Covenant to Moses for the House of Israel. They were put into the Ark of the Covenant, a shadow of the ‘Messenger of the Covenant’. Our presentation of the Proof of the Creator contains some interesting things about the Ark of the Covenant.
Those Who disregard the Righteous Rule of Law
“Let the many that exist perish, rather than that the Law of God which has been set before them be disregarded. For God strictly commanded those who came, at their coming, as to what they should do to live and what they should observe to escape being punished.
But they disobeyed and opposed Him and they devised foolish thoughts; And conceived wicked wiles, and went so far as to say that the Most High does not exist and they ignored His ways, and scorned His Law and denied His agreements/Covenants, and had no faith in His statutes, and did not complete/fulfill His work.”2 Esdras 7:20-24
Those Who Keep the Righteous Rule of Law
“Now therefore hearken, O Israel, unto the statutes and to the judgments, which I teach you, for to do them, that you may live, and go in and possess the land which the Lord God of your fathers gives you. You shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall you diminish ought from it, that you may keep the Commandments of the Lord your God which I command you…
Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the Lord my God commanded me… Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, ‘Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people. For what nation is there so great, who has God so near to them, as the Lord our God is in all things that we call upon Him for? And what nation is there so great, that has statutes and judgments so righteous as all this Law, which I set before you this day?’”Moses – Deuteronomy 4:1-8
For a Blessing and a Curse
“It shall come to pass, if you shall hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord your God, to observe and to do all His Commandments which I command you this day, that the Lord your God will set you on high above all nations of the earth: And all these blessings shall come on you, and overtake you, if you shall hearken unto the voice of the Lord your God… But it shall come to pass, if you will not hearken unto the voice of the Lord your God, to observe to do all His Commandments and His statutes which I command you this day; that all these curses shall come upon you, and overtake you:”Moses – Deuteronomy 28:1-2, 13-15
Worship God Only and keep His Law
“And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s Name written in their foreheads.
(First angel) “Reverence God and give glory to Him; for the hour of His judgment is come; worship Him that made heaven and earth…”
(Second angel) “Babylon is fallen, is fallen… Come out of her…”
(Third angel) followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixer into the cup of His indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascends up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receives the mark of his name.”
Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the Commandments of God, and the faith/truth of Jesus.”The Book of Revelation 14:1, 6-12
These are the Bible’s three main characters.
A Prophet and Lawgiver Like unto Moses
“And the Lord said to me, …I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto you, and will put My words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto My words which he shall speak in My Name, I will require it of him.”
“Behold, I will send My messenger, and he shall prepare the way before Me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the Messenger of the Covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the Lord of hosts… Remember the Law of Moses My servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet in the face of the coming of the great and dreadful/terrible Day of the Lord: And he shall turn the heart of the Father to the children, and the heart of the children to their Father, when I come and smite the earth with a curse.”Moses – Deuteronomy 18:15-22; The LORD God – Malachi 3:1, 4:1-6
