Usufruct Prophecy

Read Jeremiah 27:11 and 29:4-14 to see a powerful example of "usufruct" in the Scriptures.

Jer 27:11 "But the nation which will bring its neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon and serve him, I will let remain on its land," declares the LORD, "and they will till it and dwell in it.""'

Jer 29:4 "Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, to all the exiles whom I have sent into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon, 5 'Build houses and live in them; and plant gardens and eat their produce. 6 'Take wives and become the fathers of sons and daughters, and take wives for your sons and give your daughters to husbands, that they may bear sons and daughters ; and multiply there and do not decrease. 7 'Seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the LORD on its behalf ; for in its welfare you will have welfare.' 8 "For thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, 'Do not let your prophets who are in your midst and your diviners deceive you, and do not listen to the dreams which they dream. 9 'For they prophesy falsely to you in My name ; I have not sent them,' declares the LORD. 10 "For thus says the LORD, 'When seventy years have been completed for Babylon, I will visit you and fulfill My good word to you, to bring you back to this place. 11 'For I know the plans that I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. 12 'Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 'You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. 14 'I will be found by you,' declares the LORD, 'and I will restore your fortunes and will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you,' declares the LORD, 'and I will bring you back to the place from where I sent you into exile.'

Now, ask yourself if this account in Jeremiah was purposely recorded in the Scriptures as a TYPE for us TODAY in America?

Isn't America under a modern "Babylonian Captivity" by being under a continuing "national emergency"?

Didn't this "national emergency" really begin with the "Civil War" when "military rule" was promulgated as General Orders No. 100 by President Lincoln, on April 24, 1863, commonly known as the Lieber Code, that established the rules of "martial law" in America?

Doesn't the Lieber Code, items #31 and #38 implement the principles of "usufruct", in accord with the Roman Justinian Code?

And doesn't the 1907 Hague Convention Treaty, of which the United States of America is a party, mention in Article 55 the word "usufructuary" and the "rules of usufruct" to be upheld by the occupying State?

    Art. 55. The occupying State shall be regarded only as administrator and usufructuary of public buildings, real estate, forests, and agricultural estates belonging to the hostile State, and situated in the occupied country. It must safeguard the capital of these properties, and administer them in accordance with the rules of usufruct.

Then, is it just a coincidence that the very next chapter, Jeremiah 30, projects us forward in time to the "End Time", when this national captivity will be ended by the Messiah, when He returns and "restores the fortunes" and the homeland of His People?

It appears that the "military rule" paradigm is the right one for us today in America, and that what was advised back then by the Creator for His People applies to us TODAY, for our admonition.

1 Cor 10:11 Now these things happened to them as an example, and they were written for our instruction, upon whom the ends of the ages have come.

This perspective is worthy of much more study, prayer and meditation, so we can comprehend just how we are to stay in honor and peace with this world today until Our Father in heaven decides to deliver His People.

Isn't bringing our neck "under the yoke of the king of Babylon" today accomplished in practice by a full assignment of our "reversionary interests" in the usufruct over to the State, and then humbly and sincerely serving the State for its and our own welfare in accordance with the TYPE and COMMAND set for us, the descendants of His People, in Jeremiah 29:4-14, and repeated in Jeremiah 42:7-12?

Jer 42:7 "Now at the end of ten days the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah. 8 Then he called for Johanan the son of Kareah and all the commanders of the forces that were with him, and for all the people both small and great, 9 and said to them, "Thus says the LORD the God of Israel, to whom you sent me to present your petition before Him: 10 'If you will indeed stay in this land, then I will build you up and not tear you down, and I will plant you and not uproot you; for I will relent concerning the calamity that I have inflicted on you. 11 'Do not be afraid of the king of Babylon, whom you are now fearing ; do not be afraid of him,' declares the LORD, 'for I am with you to save you and deliver you from his hand. 12 'I will also show you compassion, so that he will have compassion on you and restore you to your own soil."

And isn't bringing our neck "under the yoke of the king of Babylon" today also indicated in Micah 4:10, which is set in the context of the labor of the "remnant" in giving birth to a "strong nation... the kingdom of the daughter of Zion", who are being told to "go to Babylon. There you will be rescued."?

Aren't the United States Code (USC) and the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) the rules of Babylon - the "statutes that were not good" that God gave us because we rejected His statutes (the Annual Holydays)?

Should we not then respect and use "their" rules while in Babylon, and under their authority which is ordained as our punishment for forsaking the Annual Holydays of the Creator, "in order that they might know that I am Lord"?

Read Ezekiel 20:21-26 and see if we have learned our lesson yet: 
21 "But the children rebelled against Me; they did not walk in My statutes, nor were they careful to observe My ordinances, by which, if a man observes them, he will live; they profaned My sabbaths. So I resolved to pour out My wrath on them, to accomplish My anger against them in the wilderness. 22 "But I withdrew My hand and acted for the sake of My name, that it should not be profaned in the sight of the nations in whose sight I had brought them out. 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. 25 "I also gave them statutes that were not good and ordinances by which they could not live; 26 and I pronounced them unclean because of their gifts, in that they caused all their firstborn to pass through the fire so that I might make them desolate, in order that they might know that I am the LORD."'

How can rebelling against the USC and UCC resolve the issue which caused them to be imposed in the first place?
