Our Nation’s Military Rule Cause & Cure
5/12/15 Update: also see "The Northern Army"
Senate Document 53-549 reports that our nation is still under a ‘national emergency’ that requires a form of military rule as our government.
But when did we initially get under this "military rule", with all of its statutes, codes, rules and regulations?
Did it start when martial law was instituted and promulgated as General Orders No. 100 by President Lincoln, on April 24, 1863?
Or did it start earlier, when, on April 15, 1861 President Abraham Lincoln, by power vested in him as Commander in Chief, made a Proclamation to "convene both Houses of Congress" under the Executive Branch where it still resides today because of the "extraordinary occasion" that required martial law (military rule)? (Aside: Notice the coincidence of that date to when tax returns are due - Is it a celebration of the military takeover of America?)
Or did it start MUCH earlier, with our ancient ancestors in the "Promised Land", when they forsook keeping the "statutes" of Leviticus 23 that were commanded to be observed "forever throughout your generations in all your dwelling places" and thereby incurred a penalty of exile and "military rule" by their enemies?
10 "So I took them out of the land of Egypt and brought them into the wilderness. 11 "I gave them My statutes and informed them of My ordinances, by which, if a man observes them, he will live. 12 "Also I gave them My sabbaths to be a sign between Me and them, that they might know that I am the LORD who sanctifies them. 13 "But the house of Israel rebelled against Me in the wilderness. They did not walk in My statutes and they rejected My ordinances, by which, if a man observes them, he will live; and My sabbaths they greatly profaned. Then I resolved to pour out My wrath on them in the wilderness, to annihilate them."
23 "Also I swore to them in the wilderness that I would scatter them among the nations and disperse them among the lands, 24 because they had not observed My ordinances, but had rejected My statutes and had profaned My sabbaths, and their eyes were on the idols of their fathers."
These "statutes" are listed in Leviticus 23, and are commanded to be observed by the Israelites forever throughout all generations in all their dwelling places.
Now notice how Jereboam forsook the Feast of Tabernacles that God commanded by Statute to be observed in the 7th month, and change its observance to the 8th month.
32 "Jeroboam instituted a feast in the eighth month on the fifteenth day of the month, like the feast which is in Judah, and he went up to the altar; thus he did in Bethel, sacrificing to the calves which he had made. And he stationed in Bethel the priests of the high places which he had made. 33 Then he went up to the altar which he had made in Bethel on the fifteenth day in the eighth month, even in the month which he had devised in his own heart; and he instituted a feast for the sons of Israel and went up to the altar to burn incense."
And this eventually led to their captivity, as God had warned them.
6 In the ninth year of Hoshea, the king of Assyria captured Samaria and carried Israel away into exile to Assyria, and settled them in Halah and Habor, on the river of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes.
7 "Now this came about because the sons of Israel had sinned against the LORD their God, who had brought them up from the land of Egypt from under the hand of Pharaoh, king of Egypt, and they had feared other gods 8 and walked in the customs of the nations whom the LORD had driven out before the sons of Israel, and in the customs of the kings of Israel which they had introduced."
22 "The sons of Israel walked in all the sins of Jeroboam which he did; they did not depart from them 23 until the LORD removed Israel from His sight, as He spoke through all His servants the prophets. So Israel was carried away into exile from their own land to Assyria until this day."
From accounts in the Bible and history, this sworn penalty for forsaking the holyday statutes for their own customs was finally executed in 721-718 BC, when the Assyrians conquered the Northern 10 Tribes of Israel and exiled them from their homeland. This is first account of military rule over the "Caucasians", from whom the American-European national heritage can be traced from the Caucasus Mountain region between the Black Sea and Caspian Sea, in Parthia, the Assyrian empire.
Why was this penalty for forsaking these holyday statutes so severe?
Because these holydays are the "appointed times" for observing the Creator's Seven Annual Holydays which are designed to reveal the 7 BIG MILESTONE EVENTS of His Divine Plan to transform "man-kind" into members of His own Divine Family "God-kind" - to become His Children, conformed into His own image and likeness. This was His Plan from the very beginning!
A key to comprehend this plan is to realize this is a PHASED Plan, consisting of a THREE BIG EVENTS: 1) Passover, 2) Pentecost (Spring Harvest) and 3) Tabernacles/Ingathering (Fall Harvest).
This "Two-Harvest" Plan is patterned after the two harvest seasons experienced by those in the northern hemisphere on earth.
But perhaps the reverse is true... that the Creator created the four seasons to facilitate his teaching mankind about His Divine Plan being accomplished in two basic phases - two "harvests" of man-kind beings into god-kind beings!
Notice that the First Harvest deals with the "Firstfruits", the Church, as a limited selection of different people from every nation throughout the first 6,000 years of His-Story, His Plan.
Then the Second Harvest deals with World - the rest of man-kind, to include not only those born in the last 1,000 year period of 7,000-year His Plan, but those also who died during the first 6,000 years but never had an legitimate opportunity to know the truth of what was really going on, and therefore make a real choice concerning what the Creator was offering in regard to His Way to Eternal Life.
Now, isn't the above Plan, as related above, logical and purposeful?
But how does this relate to us being under "military rule" today in America?
Well, can anyone rebut the evidence that our country was established under Mosaic Law?
Can anyone rebut the evidence that our country's origin has ancestral Anglo-Saxon-Celtic roots and heritage?
Then, is there not probable cause to believe that these "statutes", commanded as appointed feasts and annual holydays, are therefore binding upon us today, just as in the Millennium, and that until we return to observing them, there is no reason for the Creator to end the military rule/captivity initially imposed upon us for breaking them?
(Notice that Zech 14:2 and Zech 12:3 confirm that "all nations" went against Jerusalem, and so therefore, the keeping of the Feast of Booths as Holyday #6 is applicable to all nations.)
Then shouldn't this issue of escaping "military rule" be a TOP PRIORITY in our lives today, nationally and individually?
Would not all other interests, good causes, political movements and humanitarian efforts constitute STUMBLINGBLOCKS if they take precedence over and divert us from the observance of these divinely-ordained holyday statutes, just as Peter's suggestion was a STUMBLINGBLOCK to the Messiah?
In this account, weren’t Peter’s efforts to deliver the Messiah from suffering and death a "good cause"?
Yet, the Messiah sternly rebuked Peter, and perceived that Satan was using Peter at that moment to get the Messiah's focus off of fulfilling the FIRST Annual Holyday, The Passover, as our passover. Notice that this arguably "good cause" was a serious STUMBLINGBLOCK to the Messiah! He was keenly aware of this issue (Passover) and how eternally important it was for him to fulfill it by dying for us, to pay for our mistakes since Eden. He knew what crucifixion was about and dreaded it!
Now, would not the Messiah say the same thing to us today as He said to Peter, if we are not keeping our primary interest and focus on fulfilling the SECOND Annual Holyday as His FIRSTFRUITS?
Isn't the SECOND holyday just as important (and literal) as the FIRST holyday in the Divine Plan?
Isn't our job now to fulfill the type that the ancient Israelites set for us in the Book of Exodus, of petitioning the Creator for deliverance from the “military rule” of modern "Egypt"?
Are we even considering promoting this Petition to prove our interest in our Father's Divine Plan?
Do we not realize that we must get out from under this "military rule" so that we may keep the Feast (of Pentecost) in the wilderness and become the "Holy Nation" that the ancient Israelites failed at, but whose failures were purposely allowed so that we today might profit from them and succeed in each point in which they failed?
Here is the main point of this entire post:
We are under "military rule" today because we are continuing the MISTAKE of our ancient Israelite ancestors. We are still ignoring the ancient holyday statutes of the Creator, Our Father, in heaven, which are designed to help us know Him and understand His Divine Plan for us. These holydays are the SIGNS that keep us on track to eternal life, and show the way out of modern Egypt's "military rule".
Everything else is a STUMBLINGBLOCK and will not deliver us from today's "military rule" until we correct THAT MISTAKE.
These Holydays constitute the core foundation of the Mosaic common law because they reveal the Divine Plan.
Trying to restore the other ancient institutions of Mosaic common law while ignoring these FOUNDATIONAL holyday statutes will prove fatal to such efforts.
Likewise, trying to preserve the preeminence of Mosaic common law against the rising tide of Civil and Sharia law while ignoring these FOUNDATIONAL holyday statutes of Mosaic law will prove fatal to such efforts.
3 "If the foundations are destroyed, What can the righteous do?”
However, the GOOD NEWS is that this MISTAKE will be corrected.
These next two annual holydays WILL be fulfilled. A miraculous display of creative power will occur transforming a desert in America in such a way that it will cause a worldwide gathering that becomes a "witness to all nations" of the Creator's reality and His Way of life.
NOTE: Notice that Mt 24:14 does NOT say "And this gospel (good news) of the [coming] kingdom...". The word "coming" is not in that verse, but it is unconsciously inserted due to the misplaced focus on the Fall Harvest Kingdom AFTER the Messiah's return - the Millennial Kingdom. This misplaced focus also afflicted the Apostles, as related in verses that indicate that they expected the return of the Messiah in their lifetime.
To correct this blind spot, we must see this verse from the perspective that this "kingdom" literally exists on the earth just BEFORE the Messiah's return and is VERY FAMOUS - and THAT FAME is WHY this verse is reporting that this kingdom is being "proclaimed in the whole world as a witness to all nations". This kingdom-nation of priests/firstfruits is making worldwide headlines just BEFORE the end-time events of the Tribulation and the return of the Messiah!
Also notice that immigration to this literal kingdom will be available to everyone on earth, and there will be no charge for joining it or being sustained by it (Isa 55.1)! And this rise of literal kingdom-nation is as certain to occur as the rain makes the grass to grow (Isaiah 55.10-11)! Read Isaiah 55. This is the pivotal chapter that reveals the literal reality of both of these next two annual holydays as BIG EVENTS on the earth. The miraculous transformation of the desert is declared an “everlasting SIGN” - a divinely appointed holyday!
There are MANY verses in the Old Testament that clearly proclaim the rise of a “Holy Nation”.
This will be a special gathering of people coming from all around the world to this miraculous "desert oasis" creation.
There is a special message about this "Gathering" that can be downloaded from the Talkshoe website shown below. Click this link to begin the download.
Below is a video that provides good research about our national heritage, and is presented to provide a contrast with the multi-national composition of the "Pentecost Nation", because the 12 Tribes all failed in the mission they were given, but at which the Pentecost Nation will succeed, showing it is by the Grace of God, not Race, that salvation will come to this world. The identity of every nation is important, because each nation has its purpose in God's Plan, to give God the glory through His use of them in His Overall Plan, and to show that He Rules in the kingdoms of men. Psalm 99:1-4 declares that God reigns in Zion and executes justice in Jacob, so it is important to know where "Jacob" is today, as they were promised by God to always exist as a nation on earth before God, and will be the place where the Pentecost Nation will arise and fullfill Holyday #3, Pentecost, the Spring Harvest of man-kind in becoming the God-kind, the Divine Family headed by Our Father in Heaven!
Ps 99:1 The LORD reigns, let the peoples tremble ; He is enthroned above the cherubim, let the earth shake ! 2 The LORD is great in Zion, And He is exalted above all the peoples. 3 Let them praise Your great and awesome name ; Holy is He. 4 The strength of the King loves justice ; You have established equity ; You have executed justice and righteousness in Jacob.
