The Alpha•bet

The Alphabet/Aleph Beit/Alef Bēt.
The English language has been very interesting to me with it being used in more countries than other languages, almost like the people who had a connection to it were scattered among the nation’s and is worth a closer look.
The number Twenty-seven is a very interesting number that shows up in a variety of places, there’s 27 books of the modern New Testament, 27 letters of the alphabet and it’s an age attributed to the demise of many “Stars”, but that’s for another discussion. 27 breaks down to 9, which is an interesting number itself. By now i’m sure you’re saying wait, there’s only 26 letters in the alphabet, but this is where English and Hebrew get interesting. The English alphabet has 22 consonants just like the Hebrew with 22 characters without vowel characters. If we add the vowels to the English alphabet we arrive at 27 with A, E, I, O and U. In Hebrew if the vowel markers also known as diacritics, or נִיקוּד (nikud) we also have 27 characters. They represent the five vowel sounds in Hebrew: A, E, I, O, and U, and they are pronounced after the consonant that they’re written above or below.
On a side note did you ever look closely at the word Vowel? Vow-El, a vow to el (God). Maybe that’s something to consider.
You’re probably still wondering about that 27th. letter, this is a letter that is a staple in our speech, it’s the letter &, also referred to as Ampersand. This is also derived from et, as in et al which means “And others”, & is used for “Also” in the most common sense.
Looking closer at vowels markers placed by Hebrew, or Masoretes, also called jots or tittles to the characters of words as a reminder of the vowel sound that’s supposed to be used, and yes, the Jot is also the 10th. character in Hebrew, the Yod. Do these sound familiar? “For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled”. Matthew 5:18 These vowel points were added much later by the Masoretes showing how even that language has evolved with time just like English with the Ampersand. Hebrew is also unique to other languages in that each character is threefold in nature, a trinity if you will. Each character is a symbol, has a numerical value & holds it’s own definition. So you can take a single word, look up those definitions, and find a story within a single word. This is very fascinating when this is done with a name of a person or a city.
When i started writing this i didn’t want to add my research because it could be taken the wrong way, but now i think it could encourage others to do their own research. My Dad was insistant that my name be spelled a particular way, Bryan instead of Brian. In learning about Hebrew i decided to see if a story or meaning existed within the name gifted to me, and here’s what i found.
B, beit or house. R, resh a head or beginning. YA, to exist, depicted as a hand. N, continue & giving.
So to create a story or definition of my given name it looks like this: A house that from the beginning existed to continue giving.
Maybe this has given something to you.
Hopefully this has been found interesting and helps to view letters and words in a different light.



Trajan, Justinian and today.

Trajan, Justinian & Today

The study of the H.R.E., the Holy Roman Empire is very fascinating, especially when we heard the Secretary of State Mike Pompeo declare the United States is the New Rome in March of 2019. So maybe we should take a look at events of the Old Rome. This short time travel journey begins with the reigns of Emperor Trajan and Emperor Justinian.

  • Cyprian Plague 250 A.D. –
    Samuel Clemens was very accurate when he stated, “History doesn’t repeat, but it does rhyme”. Looking back nearly 2 thousand years ago we discover an eerily similar event to what is occuring globally today, and hopefully we are not witnessing the mere beginning stages of a larger event.
    In 250-251 A.D. under Trajan Decius the Cyprian Plague which was similar to smallpox broke out and the citizens were required to offer sacrifices to the Roman Gods (Mithras), upon doing so Decian would provide a certificate of compliance called a Libellus, or Libelli. The “Certificate of Compliance” permitted citizens the ability for “Returning to normal” regarding their participation in regular life such as shopping and attending group related events. For some reason this idea sounds “Fully” familiar. This easily divided those who didn’t perform their “Civic Duty” because the Christian sect didn’t fall in lock-step with this mandate, and even Pope Fabian was executed for his refusal, persecution is nothing new! This 13 month persecution was ended by Caesar Valarian, who was a Soldier Emporer rather than an Aristocrat, but later resumed from 257-258 C.E. with even harsher losses of social privileges or even death. The Priests who held the sacred handwritten gospels were also ordered to comply and labeled as a “Traitore”. Any trends sounding remotely familiar?
    The Roman Empire which was bordered by the Frank’s, Alemanni, and Goths, to the north and the Sassanid to the east was appreciated as being a “Peaceful Empire”, however this peace was only enjoyed through domination and subsequent submission. The Caesar Valerian would soon meet his demise in 260 at the battle of Odessa, which is probably a more accurate birthplace of the Gospels and modern Christianity. It’s interesting how things come full circle! This was obviously no Trajan Horse (sorry) but let’s jump forward several hundred years and take a look at our victim of legal abuse syndrome Emperor Justinian.
    *partial source material:

  • Then there’s Justinian, everyone’s favorite ruler who codified the legal system that many enjoy, and profit from today.
    In the year 541 A.D. rats on Egyptian grain boats brought a pestilence to the Eastern Roman Empire that would ultimately leave approximately 25 million people dead. The Plague of Justinian quickly tore through the empire. Even the emperor himself Justinian I, for whom the plague was named contracted the disease. While he lived, many didn’t, with modern scholars estimating that at one point as many as 5,000 people died per day in Constantinople, the empire’s capital, which today is known as Istanbul due to a later invasion. By its end, about 40 percent of the city’s population was dead. This occurred to so many and so quickly that bodies were left in piles, soon this was joined by about one-fourth of the eastern Mediterranean.
    Germany didn’t seem to learn from this plague until after 1347 A.D. when the bubonic plague ravaged Europe which reportedly is the purpose for the lid we see on beer steins supposedly to prevent contamination by rats. Steins also adopted clear bottoms, but that’s regarding piracy, slavery, and a story for another day. For Justinian, the control of the plague was through the implementation of quarantines. The uninfected would typically remain in their homes and only leave when it was necessary. It doesn’t seem like our prevention has advanced very far in over 1,500 hundred years. We should always be aware of past experiences when being told of present dangers!

A Perpetual Conflict?

To find what the intent of any war is we don’t need to look much further than the preamble in the charter of the United Nations where it reads “To save succeeding generations from the scourge of war”, or in other words “A long and sustained peace”. The ultimate requirement for peace however is the submission to a conquering force. A very interesting definition for Peace can be found in Merriam-Webster:
“a state of security or order within a community provided for by law or custom”. This is a soft, but perfect, example of submission.
Staying on point, this is cited in the Lieber Code regarding an end to the condition of the conflict.
Art. 2.
Martial Law does not cease during the hostile occupation, except by special proclamation, ordered by the commander in chief; or by special mention in the treaty of peace concluding the war, when the occupation of a place or territory continues beyond the conclusion of peace as one of the conditions of the same.
Simply by following the dictates of the Lieber Code in Article 2 where can we find either: 1. A special proclamation by the Commander in Chief, or 2. Special mention in a Treaty of peace concluding the civil war? Nowhere in my studies can be found either of these two requirements for ceasing martial law, and to take this even further to a conclusionary point has there ever been a treaty of peace concluding this war? A surrender at Appomattox isn’t sufficient and such an Armistice is mentioned in Article 142, “An armistice is not a partial or a temporary peace; it is only the suspension of military operations to the extent agreed upon by the parties”, so a treaty of peace is a prerequisite and can be found for other conflicts but is missing here.
Interesting enough i’ve rarely heard about the Congressional Act that put the war into full motion. Crittenden-Johnson Act in July of 1861 which stated, the war was fought not for “Overthrowing or interfering with the rights or established institutions of those States,” but to “defend and maintain the supremacy of the Constitution and to preserve the Union.”
This seems a little different than we’ve been lead to believe, or maybe deceived to believe.
What is even more interesting is the proclamation by Abraham Lincoln issued on April 15, 1861 where a he appealed “To all loyal citizens to favor, facilitate, and aid this effort to maintain the honor, the integrity, and the existence of our National Union.” This was an appeal to “All loyal citizens” but as the Commander in Chief wouldn’t this go out to the United States Army? Throughout time it is very evident there’s a strong need to have the subjects on board with the king! We wouldn’t want to see them picking up pitchforks & torches now would we!
Article 6 is probably the most important in relation to the operation of law. Many want to “Hold Public Servants accountable” for not following their own Statutes, Codes or Regulations, however; during this conflict they can choose whether or not to use the civil laws.
Article 6
“All civil and penal law shall continue to take its usual course in the enemy’s places and territories under Martial Law, unless interrupted or stopped by order of the occupying military power; but all the functions of the hostile government – legislative executive, or administrative – whether of a general, provincial, or local character, cease under Martial Law, or continue only with the sanction, or, if deemed necessary, the participation of the occupier or invader.”
So who decides participation, they do, not you!
Many people want to “Make officer’s uphold their oath of office” but it’s not within our authority to do so, especially since this oath isn’t to us, instead there is a General who holds this authority, the Attorney General at both the State & Federal levels. The Federal Attorney General can be contacted here:
U.S. Department of Justice
950 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20530-0001
Department Comment Line: 202-353-1555
Department of Justice Main Switchboard: 202-514-2000
If someone feels an offense needs to be corrected this would be a route to explore if it’s Justice someone is seeking, just remember that the wheels of justice move slow and can be very expensive! How much “Justice” can you afford?
Enough of this though, hopefully by now in looking at the Lieber Code, which was rules of engagement for an “Armed or Unarmed” enemy, your subconscious has experienced some confusion, but we’ve only begun! This war was supposedly about slavery yet men of any nationality participated. The photo in this article is of Nat Hutter, one of the “Boy’s of the War”, i found the photo very touching! Would you fight for your slavery? Unfortunately today it seems like many are, but would you pick up arms? What about two of the slaves from the White Lion Isabella and Anthony who married and had a child in 1624 William Tucker, as they named him after a Virginian planter, was the first recorded Black child born in English America. Would you name your offspring after the a Plantation planter? Oh yes, you are probably asking about the Slaveship “White Lion”, and i’m glad you asked! The White Lion arrived at Point Comfort in Virginia in the year 1619. Are you confused yet? The Mayflower arrived in the early winter of 1620, one year later! When we really start to delve into this topic it can be found that slaves arrived in North America even a hundred years earlier in the 1500 – 1540 era. It’s interesting that only drawings of these slaveships seem to exist, they would have been a big enough part of history to preserve for at least a little while, photography was in use already by that century. Amazingly by the time of the Civil War aka: War of Northern Aggression there were upwards of 4 million people brought here already. Not to pile on any additional confusion, but the term Slaveship or Slave Ship wasn’t in use until the 1980’s when i was in school. Go ahead, look for it in an old dictionary.
In thinking about the Lieber Code and looking at earlier history in North America we can’t help but wonder if there has been other “Conflicts” here against armed or unarmed inhabitants, maybe even the indigenous inhabitants, and i’m not talking about the American Indians…
or am i? You decide.


Who You Serve is Who You Are.

Knowing who you are…

Let’s look at the last section of 1 USC 8, specifically this is Section (c). When reading code we need to remember just that, it’s code! So part of deciding it is reading forwards, backwards, inside out, what it states & what it doesn’t state which is of equal importance!
1 USC 8 (c)
(c)Nothing in this section shall be construed to affirm, deny, expand, or contract any legal status or legal right applicable to any member of the species homo sapiens at any point prior to being “born alive” as defined in this section.
What are the most important words in section (c)? “…at any point prior to being born alive”, what is being stated is that rights “Prior to” will not be affected, so what does that mean? This means that the previously mentioned rights & status will be affected after the point of being Born Alive!
Once we start really looking at what is stated these statements start to stick out like a sore red thumbprint, pun intended!

Let’s look at probably the most misinterpreted sentence on a U.S. document, the first sentence of the 1st. Amendment of the Constitution.
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion”.
Knowing this was written by attorneys we need to look up the legal definition of these three terms being utilized: Respecting, Establishment and Religion. If they had just left it at “Congress shall make no law” life may be easier but unfortunately they didn’t, so we need to realize what was intended by this sentence.

On to with Establishment, this obviously isn’t a reference to Catholic, Protestant, Buddhist or New Ager, an establishment can be as simple as our household or our person, are you not to be “Secure in your Papers, Persons and House” in the 4th. Amendment? Notice that Persons was stated as plural, you can have more than one Person! The question would be have we declared how we are established? What was declared in Joshua 24:15 regarding his Person and House? “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord”.
We obviously need to declare who our establishment serves, otherwise it will be decided for you and the choice may not be favorable to you.
The term Respecting, this simply means “In regards to”, it has nothing to do with being considerate of someone.
If a Declaration of who we serve is served what could the results be? The Lieber Code written for Abraham Lincoln by Sir Charles Lieber of France addressed this in Article 53. Keep in mind the Lieber Code could only be rescinded by Special Proclamation of the Commander in Chief or by a mention in a Treaty of Peace, none of which have occurred! So, let’s look at Article 53.
“The enemy’s chaplains, officers of the medical staff, apothecaries, hospital nurses and servants, if they fall into the hands of the American Army, are not prisoners of war, unless the commander has reasons to retain them. In this latter case; or if, at their own desire, they are allowed to remain with their captured companions, they are treated as prisoners of war, and may be exchanged”.
Hasn’t a Chaplain declared who/what he serves?

Religion, if research has been done on the personal letters of these Founding Attorneys we learn they viewed this as a life of piety, not going to church or praying before bedtime. Alexander Hamilton often referred to the inhabitants as “The unwashed masses”, a carnal people with no spiritual connection to the Creator or spiritual authorities.
To digress, isn’t it interesting that this statement was the first sentence of the first Amendment? It only makes sense, if you are one of these “Unwashed masses” the rest of the Amendments are for you since your life will need to be administrated.
If you travel to another country they ask three questions:

  1. Who are you?
  2. Where are you going?
  3. What are you planning to do? (intent)
    Did you ever declare these in your country, or is your identity falling under “Presumption of Law”?


The Proprietary Sole

In the corporate realm an Individual is deemed a Sole Proprietor, so what does this really mean? First it’s necessary to define the terms before moving forward. This is not to be confused with your spiritual or physical Soul, and it’s less than amusing how the spiritual realm is mirrored.

Sole definition \ ˈsōl \

  1. a: being the only one
    she was her mother’s sole support
    b: having no sharer
  2. functioning independently and without assistance or interference
    let conscience be the sole judge
  3. belonging exclusively or otherwise limited to one usually specified individual, unit, or group
  4. not married —used chiefly of women
  5. archaic: having no companion, SOLITARY
    ~ Merriam-Webster 1828

Proprietor definition
pro·​pri·​e·​tor | \ prə-ˈprī-ə-tər \

  1. one who has legal right or exclusive title to something : OWNER
    also : one (as a lessee) having an interest (as control or present use) less than absolute or exclusive right.
    Merriam-Webster 1828

In looking at the definitions a mixed message is observed, while Sole can mean only, a Proprietor doesn’t hold absolute interest or right! This is like the term Custodian, one you cares for someone else’s property. This is why parents are “Legal custodians” and fight for “Custody”, like it or not the state holds an interest in the offspring. Allow me to put this a little more simply, the cattle rancher owns the calves his cows produce. Does the term Chattel Property sound familiar? In the same way a Proprietorship isn’t exactly as it appears. In this corporate realm everything is commercial and a Sole Proprietorship is no different.

Sole Proprietorship –
This is a form of business involving one and only one owner. No special legal documents are needed to establish a sole proprietorship and really it is not even a distinct legal entity, separate from its owner. As a result, the owner is liable for all of the debts and liabilities of the business, but has total control of the business. If the business is to be conducted under a name, it is necessary to file an assumed name certificate (sometimes referred to
as a “dba”) in any county in which the business is to be conducted. The business does not file a separate tax return, although the owner must prepare a Schedule C to be included in his or her
individual tax return. While the assets of a sole proprietorship (including its name) can be sold, it is not possible to transfer a sole proprietorship to someone else.

This states that a Sole Proprietorship has one and only one owner, here’s an additional source identifying who a Sole Proprietor is.

Sole Proprietor –
A business run as a sole proprietorship does not have any legal separation between the company and the business owner. They are considered the same legal entity, and therefore, the business owner is personally responsible for all debts and legal obligations of the business.

These references are showing something more specific, the personification of a legal entity, a Sole Proprietorship or more specifically a Juridic Person. When looking to see if there is any difference in filing requirements something very interesting is found, there is no difference! Have people been forgetting to attach a Schedule C to their return and write off the losses incurred by operating this Sole Proprietorship?

This still leaves one very obvious and serious question, do we want to act as a representative or agent for a man-made entity?
Consult a “Qualified” Public Accountant (CPA) for advice on these matters if you wish but keep in mind, “The tax system is based on Voluntary compliance”!

5G – Fact or Fiction

5G – Fact or Fiction
Today most of us are being pounded by Wi-fi frequencies from devices, we are even hit with “Dirty electricity” from our kitchen electronics, for more on this i would highly recommend the book ‘The invisible rainbow’! While i don’t like any form of artificial frequencies due to the harm caused upon our mind and body i also feel we should educate ourselves on this issue, because no one else will! Many of us are very susceptible to frequencies, especially when we look at reports regarding home electric meters, so we need to realize that our experience isn’t the same as what other’s endure! Maybe some of us are more “In tune” with our surroundings!
For those saying that 5G operates only at 60ghz however i’ve found 24 channels/frequencies it can use, 60ghz is only used by 1 of 24 channels. Also, you can adjust this on your device, do the fearmongers on YouTube give you that knowledge?
While 5G is not yet implemented due to the need of receivers/transmitters a minimum of every 500 feet i’m more concerned about 6G which reminds me of G6, or Genesis 6. This was a time where the DNA of mankind and animals were being “Played with”. What did our Creator think about this? Let’s look a Genesis 6 in Tyndale’s New Living Translation.

6 Then the people began to multiply on the earth, and daughters were born to them. 2 The sons of God saw the beautiful women[a] and took any they wanted as their wives. 3 Then the Lord said, “My Spirit will not put up with[b] humans for such a long time, for they are only mortal flesh. In the future, their normal lifespan will be no more than 120 years.”
4 In those days, and for some time after, giant Nephilites lived on the earth, for whenever the sons of God had intercourse with women, they gave birth to children who became the heroes and famous warriors of ancient times.
5 The Lord observed the extent of human wickedness on the earth, and he saw that everything they thought or imagined was consistently and totally evil. 6 So the Lord was sorry he had ever made them and put them on the earth. It broke his heart. 7 And the Lord said, “I will wipe this human race I have created from the face of the earth. Yes, and I will destroy every living thing—all the people, the large animals, the small animals that scurry along the ground, and even the birds of the sky. I am sorry I ever made them.”
Let’s not forget, In the Beginning was the Word, is the Word really Frequency?

Here is a chart to find where 60Ghz is being used, so far.

Time, What a Concept!

“Time, what a concept”!

“Mae”! My mother’s voice rattled up the narrow stairway to my loft in that tone of voice that every scorned daughter would recognize. “Ya mom, I know, the laundry. I’ll have it done before you even wake up tomorrow”, from her daily hangover that is, but I won’t utter those thoughts! Tomorrow is my 16th. birthday and I need to kiss her butt because hopefully she will take me to the DMV so I can get my driver’s license, ya it’s a kinda big thing, you know? It’s been a drag today, rainy, and due to covid nobody is hang’in out very much, just a perfect day to be lazy and drift to sleep catching up on a couple Netflix series.
Wow the morning comes fast! The patter-patter of the rain looks like it has turned into snow as i lazily roll over to look out the window. Staring across my bed I see the empty pillow where Charlie’s head once layed, my dear Charlie, my husband and best friend of 63 years. Both he and my mother passed long ago, oh my, where does the time really go? Well, I better roll out of bed, there’s still laundry to tend to!


Many erroneously think the White House which is appropriately situated between Virginia and Maryland is constructed of the marble of the god’s from Croatia, which at that era would have been a daugnting feat of transportation and shipping. The White House and many other temples of the District of Columbia were actually constructed of nearby sandstone and limestone. As written by Charles Bulfinch ca. 1829, the sandstone was the principal material used in such significant buildings as the White House and the early stages of the U.S. Capitol. The easy availability of the stone and its ability to be carved were offset in time by its susceptibility to weather-induced deterioration.
The building of this Presidential Palace was commissioned to James Gonna from Ireland by George Washington who never resided in it. The White House and the Capitol are often referred to as “The People’s House” which many learned wasn’t the case on January 6th. 2021. Myself a claim to a temple of Horus would never be on my agenda. Much of the construction being sandstone covering a frame hardly seems like a monument to stand the test of time, as we will soon learn. One hundred and fifty years after the cornerstone was laid the White House was condemned for human living and underwent major renovation in 1948. On a side note Sandstone is not very tolerable with a Mohs hardness scale of 6.5 and a melting temperature of 1,500°C, keeping in mind that an average home fire easily reaches the same temperature.
Let’s travel back in time though to foundation of The White House, originally referred to as The Presidential Palace, had it’s cornerstone laid on October 13th. of 1792 while the Moon was in Virgo and equally as interesting the Capitol was founded on September 18th. of 1795 while Mercury was in Virgo. The significance of these signs should not go unobserved.
To avoid the labyrinth of rabbit holes in astrology one can easily be found lost in let’s explore another curious feature of construction for the Presidential Palace. Anyone who has built a structure knows that aside from the foundation a modern structure requires an allowance for plumbing, which became a head scratcher while simultaneously providing a good chuckle in the darker corners of my mind. Allow me to explain, being constructed on low water lands, a kind way of saying swamp, the site of the White House needed to be raised as can be seen if viewing the grounds around the National Monument, the sewage and plumbing was also at different levels for both flow and pumping purposes. Here’s where it gets interesting, knowing this is all built on a “Lowland” if a serious flood were to occur the waters of the buildings constructed below the White House would force the plumbing to rise and eventually the sewage would backup to it’s highest point, The Presidential Palace! Do you have that sinister grin yet? The headwaters of the Potomac which provided the sandstone for the White House could one day reclaim it’s natural property.

“Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock… But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand.”
Matthew 7: 24 & 26 NLT


A Divided People, on Purpose!

‘Return of the Republic’

This is an “Ear tickling” phrase or buzzword peddled among a community of patriots without a baseline or true definition of what a Republic truly is, so let’s look.

Republic: “A form of government in which a state is ruled by representatives of the citizen body.”
~ Encyclopedia Britannica

Republic vs. Democracy
“The major difference between a Democracy and a Republic is that a Republic is a form of government whereas a Democracy is an ideology that helps shape how a government is run.
Put another way, a Republic is the system of government that allows a country to be Democratic”!
~ Prepscholar

Republic vs. Democracy
Maybe people need to realize the difference between a government and an ideology.
Let’s break this down to the very basics…
We know the Terms Republicans & Democrats, we also hear Democracy but have we ever heard of a Repubcrocy? Have we ever heard of a Depublican? Of course not, one is a system of government and the latter is an ideology that runs a government, control by elected officials. People seem to be controled the easiest through their lack of knowledge. Didn’t Hosea state this? “My people perish for a lack of knowledge”.

What does the U.S. Constitution cite in Article IV?
“Guarantee[s] to every State in this Union a Republican form of Government”.
Does this guarantee a Republic? No, it guarantees a Republican “Form” of government. Maybe better stated “A Republican type of government”. Something additional to keep in mind is that a Grantor is creator of a Trust which is self evident in the preamble.
Put simply, a Republic is governed by the written law as opposed to the lone edicts of a Monarch. The United States however has a mix of both as a “Republican form of government” which is observed with edicts rolled out in the form of Executive Orders. This is probably why Patrick Henry was opposed to the Constitution when he stated “The Constitution would give a president powers greater than a king”. For some reason though patriots love that document, whether they are a party to it or not.
In saying that “We need to restore the Republic” is like looking around for your glasses when they’re perched upon your forehead. Just another red flag designed to expose those who don’t know what they’re talking about.
So when we read “A government of the people, by the people and for the people” maybe we should rethink who The People really are, because the government certainly doesn’t listen to the Constituents. Have you ever thought something bigger could be happening behind the scenes? i’ll leave you with a quote from General Cornwallis of the Revolutionary War.

The Roman’s Deception

In the study of Man’s Law there quickly became a better understanding of scriptural laws and commandments, and how the latter mirrors the former. Today it’s frustrating to watch the misinformation of not just man’s mandates but also those of scripture. So let’s look at a couple of those that seem to be negligently regurgitated, and we don’t need to travel any further than the book of Romans, because all roads lead to Rome, right?
Romans 13:1
“Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God”. KJV
To comprehend this text and it’s intent we should look at the juridic atmosphere of that day. The people were ruled by two factions, the first being the physical governance of Pontius Pilate (Latin: ˈpɔntɪ.ʊs piːˈlaːtʊs; Greek: Πόντιος Πιλάτος) the governor of the Roman province of Judaea, serving under Emperor Tiberius in a ten year span around 30 AD. In this capacity Pilate represented the “Earthly Authority”. Then there was the second rulers, the Spiritual court of the Sanhedrin that we see led by Caiaphas (Hebrew: יוֹסֵף בַּר קַיָּפָא‎; Greek: Καϊάφας) the High Priest of Israel who the scribes and the elders as an ad hoc court of the Sanhedrin and gathered together in the trial of Yeshua. This could be seen as an ecclesiastical court but it needs to be realized that many members of the Sanhedrin also held positions with Rome’s government.
By now we should be looking at Romans 13:1 a little differently. These authorities being referred to were those of the Spiritual court and it’s rulers, and not the rulers of Rome. This chapter does mention taxes but does the church not require a tax/tenth/tithe? This chapter mostly discusses morality and the keeping of Torah’s commandments, not man’s law. This was the message Yeshua was repeatedly teaching, His Kingdom is within and not the realm of Rome. Pontius Pilate had no issue with Yeshua because Yeshua was not claiming the realm of Pilate or Tiberius, Yeshua was claiming the Kingdom that the Sanhedrin pretended to rule. Yes pretended, what did Yeshua tell them? He told them in John 8 that their father “…was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not”.
If their father was a liar then what do you think came from their mouths? On a side note it’s very interesting that it’s written how Pilate washed his hands at this event, however the washing of hands was not a Roman custom, the washing of hands is actually a jewish custom. Maybe it was actually Caiaphas who washed his hands, which would make more sense.
After looking at the two tiers of authority during those days another deceptive issue being taught also needs to be addressed, the Law.
Recent events should have exposed this and what has been read into the Pauline Doctrine, after all Paul referred to it as “My Gospel”. In Romans 7 Paul wrote of no longer being “Bound by the Law”. This law was that of those lying Scribes who followed the Oral Law of the Talmud and not the Law of the Torah. We should be starting to realize why Yeshua said their father was a liar and the father of lies. Keep in mind that only secret information is spread orally to prevent written evidence of falsehoods.
As an agent for Rome did Paul hide some truth in his text? This seems to be obvious. However so does today’s clergy being restrained under a 501c(3) status.
Allow me to leave you with another consideration. Last time Checked there are over one hundred thousand (100,000) ministers who are a member of the CRT, Clergy Response Team. These are ministers of the worldly realm who will quickly deliver you unto Caesar. It would be interesting to learn how many of people’s dearly beloved clergy will admit to holding this position!
Above all else, know who you are and Who you belong to!
