About Lowther

I am a servant of YHWH through his perfect Son Jesu(s) Christ who's redemption power of my soul I have Faith in. Now that I have been redeemed by the blood of Christ, I wish to no longer spend my time in the lusts of the flesh and of this world, but to promote the Gospel of the Kingdom by means of the New Covenant, which is a renewal of the Covenant YHWH God has made with his people Israel now in the blood of Christ (Jer 31:31 and Heb 8:8). The focus of my administration of the Gospel is like unto my Lord's who said "I have come not but for the lost sheep of the house of Israel.."(Mathew 15:24). The mission the Lord has sent me to is for the European people of the world, the descendants of those who have held and spread the Bible and the faith of Christ like no other race on the earth, it is this people who are in fact the physical descendants of the 12 tribes of Israel called to be regathered by the blood of Christ, a task which as been in progress since the time of the apostles. It is thus my mission to show those people salvation through the son of God, the WORD made flesh, born of the virgin Marym, the Son of David! In the fullness of time YHWH will regather his people under the Head of the Church Jesu(s) Christ as to effect his will according to the Lord's prayer, Psalm 8, 2, and 110 as well as Genesis 1:26. As a modern day Puritan separatist it is my goal to purify the church of Christ with the heretofore stated. I am studying to show my self approved, if you have any questions just ask!

The Time is Fulfilled

and

The Kingdom of God is at hand

Fulfilled Part 4

…Repent ye, and Believe the Gospel.

Mar_1:15

It is to this first statement our last message and this message shall be devoted, as well as that which shall encompass the rest of this series, that is ” The time is fulfilled”, in part 3 the focus was upon the fulfillment, as will the beginning of this message be as it is tied in to the aspect of the time being fulfilled.

The Question which was stressed in the last part was that of ” What was a Biblically minded person living in the land of Judah, hearing the message of the Gospel as expounded by John the Baptist or of Christ, what was it that they, by reading the Law and the Prophets had anticipated when Christ spoke this our opening statement?”

What was the Good-Message? It was the good- placment, the straightening or leveling in preparation of the roadway, which was found in the Coming Christ Who proclaimed him self to be in Joh_14:6 the way, the truth, and the life and who as well boldly stated in the context of the Chapter no man can come to the Father but by him, the road way to God. This was according to the prophecy given by Malachi 3, Isaiah 40 directly seated upon the same context of the way found in Exo_23:20-33: this Way easily seen as the Law and Word of YHWH as mentioned time again as such through out the Torah of YHWH. It was this Way which was codified at the hand of Moses yet was in every jot and stroke the written cognition of Judgment found in the person of God. As well both aspects of Kingdom establishment found in this portion of Exodus takes precedents as the base of understanding the message of the Gospel of the Kingdom, that is a literal national homeland or country and 2 one which is Governed by God’s Law given from Heaven to establish a literal Kingdom of Heaven on Earth.

This Way which the Host of Israel shall march upon will lead to conflict, it will lead to spiritual warfare, the foundations of this Kingdom will dispossess the inhabitants of the Land whose iniquity will be fulfilled in due time according to the Gospel delivered to Abraham and to his seed, his nations and his kings, chosen as a holy race according to 1pe_2:9, the redeemed of the son’s of Adam through the Ethneh of Abraham, reconciled in the regathering of the tribes of Israel under and unto one Shepard according to the words of the prophets and of the Law, and to those who are called according to this purpose and Salvation even unto eternal life in His Son (Rom_8:28; 2Ti_1:9; 2Pe_1:3)

I hope that while this prelude to the message in forecast with the knowledge of Christ, whose glory is indeed once it is known, is hard to conceal, I pray it was to this hope it was understood by the last message, that to those men who heard the Gospel’s proclamation in the days of Christ and John this was an anticipation relayed by the scriptures.

We now move on to this son of David and foreseen King of the Kingdom, the very heir of Abraham’s pro-Evangelion, the fore-Gospel, the basis which the Gospel came upon according to Gal_3:8.

In the prior message and comipation of Scriptures a Septuagint /LXX traslation of Isa 9:6-7 was Considered:

For a child was born to us; a son was given to us, of whom the sovereignty became upon his shoulder; and his name is called, Messenger of great counsel, wonderful, counselor, God’s mightyG2478 potentate, ruler of peace, father of the coming age.

For I will bring peace upon the rulers, and his health.

And great is his sovereignty, and of his peace there is no end upon the throne of David, and his kingdomG932 to set it up and to take hold in judgment; even with righteousness from the present and into the ages. The zeal of the lord of Hosts shall do these things.

(It was pointed out that isxoros / ισχυροςG2478 is the Greek word for strength or power in Gen_32:28 when Jacob’s name was changed to Israel when he prevailed against the angel)

 

The anticipation of this Kingdom proclaimed by the Gospel was a re institution of Exodus 19, as the disciples of Christ knew was the end result of of the Coming King of Israel as recorded and proclaimed by the Ambassador Luke was a kingdom rule:

Luk_1:33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.

and after all the preaching and the resurrection Luke tells us the disciple yet anticipated this literal fulfillment :

Act_1:3 To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:

Act 1:4 And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he,ye have heard of me.

Act 1:5For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.

Act 1:6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?

Act 1:7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.

This anticipation was no doubt caused by the former sited scriptures and more, as well as by Christ’s own testimony Luke as records:

Luk_22:29-30And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me;

That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

The Disciples did not interpret the Scriptures in a overly fleshly way as some may ignorantly or prejudicly suppose, rather they, as we, should take our Christ and His Word at face value, literally. It does not take a bible scholar to see the King, and Kingdom having it’s very existence in the thrown of David a kingdom of Israel’s united 12 tribes…literally.

Is it not in Isa_49:3-8 which promised that in Israel, I will be glorified… and that Christ, Messiah the Servant was formed from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob again to him, Though Israel be not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of YHWH, and my God shall be my strength?

Of whom YHWH proclaimed: It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.

Isa 49:7 Thus saith the LORD, the Redeemer of Israel, and his Holy One, to him whom man despiseth, to him whom the nation abhorreth, to a servant of rulers, Kings shall see and arise, princes also shall worship, because of the LORD that is faithful, and the Holy One of Israel, and he shall choose thee.

Isa 49:8 Thus saith the LORD, In an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee: and I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages

We had read in the past compilations some of the prophecies which indicates the time of this fulfillment, it is obvious from both John and Christ’s proclamation that

this time had come, and that indeed the Kingdom was at hand.

It was as well to all the promises which was found in the Gospel of the Kingdom, which the Prophet Daniel spoke and sat his prophecies upon as well, Daniel was a prophet who was a captive in the land of Chaldea of the son’s of Judah, when the King Nebuchadnezzar king of what was one of the most vast and powerful kingdoms on earth YHWH sent a dream: And to Daniel the prophet and servant of YHWH was the interpretation given, it was and is a prophecy of much controversy, and while many will not except this explanation of this interpretation, and this I know already, it is I believe the irrefutable foundation of the time of fulfillment Christ in Mark 1:15 Exclaimed:

Dan_2:31 Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible.

Dan 2:32 This image’s head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,

Dan 2:33 His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.

Dan 2:34 Thou sawest 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.

Dan 2:35 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.

Dan 2:36 This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king.

Dan 2:37 Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory.

Dan_2:38 And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head of gold.

Dan 2:39 And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth.

Dan 2:40 And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.

Dan 2:41 And whereas thou sawest 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 thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.

Dan 2:42 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.

Dan 2:43 And whereas thou sawest 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.

Dan_2:44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven 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.

Dan_2:45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.

 

Many interpretations of the meaning of this stone cut with out hands is proposed, yet the Law of YHWH tells us about the nature of this kingdom Daniel saw which was cut or broke from a mountain, yet it self after crushing the feet of the last kingdom grows it self in to a mountain it self!

 

Exo_20:25 And if thou wilt make me an altar of stone, thou shalt not build it of hewn stone: for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast polluted it.

Deu_27:5 And there shalt thou build an altar unto the LORD thy God, an altar of stones: thou shalt not lift up any iron tool upon them.

 

This kingdom is representative of the same Exo_19:5-6 Kingdom of Priests and Holy Nation.

The Ambassador of this very kingdom of God and Heaven, Peter, told the strangers and pilgrims scattered through out the kingdom’s of the earth, yet elect and foreknown of God the Father called, to be thus:

1Pe_2:4 To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,

1Pe 2:5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.

1Pe 2:6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.

1Pe 2:7 Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner,

1Pe 2:8 And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.

1Pe 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

1Pe_2:10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. (This of course as a direct quote of Hos_1:9-10, Hos_2:23 ; Rom_9:25-26, Rom_11:30)

This very Nation, that is the Holy Ethnicity, whom God had foreknown and promised to our Father Abraham in the pro-evangel, that is by the singular seed of Christ (Gal_3:16) born of the seed of a woman (Gen_3:15), the WORD made flesh, the Nations and Kings to proceed from Abraham’s literal loins would be blessed and as a result would as well be a blessing to all families and peoples upon the earth just as promised in :

Deu_4:5-8

Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments… 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.

Deu 4:7 For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for?

Deu 4:8 And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?

The Answer to this question asked in Deuteronomy 4:7-8, seen in 1 Peter, the answer is none other than Israel when sanctified through of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ. It was unto this glorious hope the kingdom became at hand through the Coming of the Way, the Truth and the Life the one foretold to have the power to raise up not only his own slain body, but to be the example of the tabernacle of David which had fallen, raised to unite the Kingdom once again to a lively hope of a kingdom of God, a Common-Wealth of Israel, A Citizenship which surpasses borders and life, beyond death a citizenship acknowledged in the thrown room of the Father YHWH God forevermore.

It was to this point the pharisees like the churches of our modern day choose to ignore, the lesson all Christians and members of the church in particular and collective should acknowledge before they ever attempt to understand any prophetic utterance or insight on eschatology or end time is Luk_17:20, this lesson is a rebuke to the future minded bible readers who even attempt to know an inkling about end times prophecy before they understand the first place of the kingdom prior described in Exo_19:6, as found in the kingdom of priest’s and holy nation, principles which are so natural, logical and realistic pervade the subject beyond the proposed spiritualism found in most understandings of God’s Kingdom:

Luk_17:20 And when he (Christ) was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:

Luk_17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for,

behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

Luk 17:22 And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see it.

Luk 17:23 And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there: go not after them, nor follow them.

Luk 17:24 For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other partunder heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day.

Is that not clear enough so satiate our minds Christians! The Son of God, the Father of the ages to come has clearly told us to get up off of our hands, waiting in anticipation for a sign of His Coming, following the wind of every doctrine and spirit of the end times and acknowledge simplicity of the fact that Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein. Luk_18:17

Here is a very interesting point on this subject: The Greek word dexhe-tai / δεξηται translated here receive only occurs in 6 verses of the whole bible including this one: Mat_10:14; Mat_18:5; Mar_9:37; Mar_10:15; Luk_9:48.

In every instance the context of the word translated receive, is in reference to ‘taking care of’, NOT to receive LIKE one, as in ‘to be like a child, infant or baby’ but rather to receive as you would take up a child in your arms or care! That is the idea of taking up the kingdom into your care, as you would receive a child so must you receive or take care of the Kingdom of God. A revolutionary light on the Idea of why such children as Christ received into His arms were likened unto the kingdom… THEY ARE THE KINGDOM, the children of the Covenant, the hope of a future Generation.

This stone has every potential to become a mountain in Christ.

Is it then any wonder that from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force? Mat_11:12

If you have not understood how this verse had a possibility in the world now perhaps it’s understanding is opened

?

Just a few verses down Christ asks this question alike:

Mat_11:16But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows (friends),

Mat 11:17And saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented.

The context is followed in Mat_11:20 :

Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein most of his mighty works were done,

because they repented not.

 

No matter how the message was given, in happiness or in sadness, it would not be received, they will not be happy with the message of Repentance, to understand the Kingdom primary place, they instead look here and there, but never believe it is repentance which comes from within.

What Generation are we likened unto?

The Time is Fulfilled

and

The Kingdom of God is at hand

Anticipation Part 3

…Repent ye, and Believe the Gospel.

Mar_1:15

The message or evangelism of the kingdom by repentance was discussed in the last study, showing that which was spoke by the Law and prophets as the message which was proclaimed by John the Messenger or Angel according to Mal_3:1 and Exo_23:20, He was the voice of one crying in the wilderness preparing the straight way of the Lord, yet John was not that Way he was rather the leveler, the straightener of the landscape making way for the straight path of Christ, who directly proclaimed himself as the Way the Truth and the Life and that NO one comes to the Father but by Him.

It hopefully was conveyed and understood that John’s message of repentance and of baptism came from the scriptures prior to John, from the Law and prophets before him, that was his validation for truth, in this way John spoke with certainty that what he spoke was accurate, and we as well only when we speak in accordance with that which is validated before hand know that we speak according to the Truth of the Gospel, the Good or straight message. Even in the coming of Christ this was a crucial point, and in the coming of the Kingdom, the want to acknowledge if one truly was beholden to the Gospel was to try it by the scriptures, to this point spoke the LORD YHWH from the time he reveled himself to the sons of Adam, from the time the subtle Serpent in Gen 3:1 spoke according to the command of God yet contrary to YHWH’s directives in what God required for obedience.

To the same point Moses spoke concerning those who claim to be prophets or dreamers of dreams, those who give signs and wonders that actually happen, yet they proclaim a message that is contrary to the Way and ways of YHWH:

Deu_13:4 Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.

Deu_13:1-5 And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn you away from the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust thee out of the way which the LORD thy God commanded thee to walk in. So shalt thou put the evil away from the midst of thee. (Exo_23:20-26)

As well Isaiah summarizes the same sentiment in:

Isa_8:16 Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples.

Isa_8:20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

It is imperative that repentance according to the word of God, the Law of God, and the testimonies of God are ascertained in a concept of mind, that is a mind change, a repentance according to the scriptures. If we think that in any way the Life and Truth of Christ, that which we may call the Gospel is contrary to the least of scriptures…It is another Gospel and another Jesus, another Christ and another Kingdom we are looking for.

If the validation of the scriptures supports John son of Zechariah the Baptist as the messenger of the Way of Christ, and that messenger is represented in the words of the supporting prophets and the Law, then the Way truth and life of Christ is the same way which brought Israel out of Egypt, a way of faith and trust in YHWH to lead them to a kingdom they would subdue according to the promise given to Abraham as well as according to the iniquity of the inhabitants of the land of Canaan Gen_15:16 But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full. which was according to the curse of Canaan Gen_9:25 . Yet in conjunction with this way which lead to the promised land, this kingdom of God, was the Way which lead to the governance of this Kingdom and promised land, a Way steeped in repentance according to the Law of God Codified by Moses for a National Law to rule the Nation of Israel, this was YHWH’s very own cognition of judgment written into a code of legislation, a Law to rule a Kingdom, a government of His people, by His People and for His people, which keeps HIM as the focus of the Kingdom, thus A kingdom of God, ruled by the dictates of Heaven, from whence God Spoke to, and in

Deu_4:35 Unto thee it was shewed, that thou mightest know that the LORD he is God; there is none else beside him. Out of heaven he made thee to hear his voice, that he might instruct thee: and upon earth he shewed thee his great fire; and thou heardest his words out of the midst of the fire. And because he loved thy fathers, therefore he chose their seed after them, and brought thee out in his sight with his mighty power out of Egypt.

And in

Exo_20:22 And the LORD said unto Moses, Thus thou shalt say unto the children of Israel, Ye have seen that I have talked with you from heaven.

Thus this Kingdom of Israel, to be ruled by YHWH’s Law was a kingdom of Heaven upon Earth,

Deu_11:21 That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth.

 

Or as our Lord Christ teaches his disciple, that is those who bind up YHWH’s Laws and testimonies as there Light, we pray Mat_6:10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. and this we pray before we even ask for our daily bread…

Deu_11:22 For if ye shall diligently keep all these commandments which I command you, to do them, to love the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, and to cleave unto him;

Deu 11:23 Then will the LORD drive out all these nations from before you, and ye shall possess greater nations and mightier than yourselves.

The way of the Gospel of Christ is the same way as Exodus 23:20, it is a way to a Kingdom, it is the way, the truth and the Life set by example of the King, the very Law made flesh, the Word made flesh, the truth of God’s commandments, words, and Law made flesh which is the road, the way, the straight path messaged by John, proclaimed as the Gospel.

Thus it is both aspects that are in need of focus, that of the Kingdom as a National home land or country, and that of a Kingdom made up of those who are subject to the king and marching upon the Way which leads to the Father and the King of all!

So when Christ proclaimed that the time was fulfilled and the Kingdom was at hand what fulfillment was he referring to that the people who believer the Scriptures would acknowledge?

We may safely conclude with the prophetic psalms of David or of the prophets to show the place of the anticipations of a person awaiting the kingdom come in the days of Christ, the biblical impact is important.

THE DOMINION MANDATE

IS

THE BASIS OF THE KINGDOM

…Be fruitful and multiply…

As said plenty of time before, the Dominion Mandate is the foundation of Adam’s son’s place in the world, it shows us primarily that dominion of governance is a blessed state and it is always accompanied by fruitfulness and multiplicity:

So God created ADaM in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion… Gen_1:26-28

To this dominion was the same made to Noah and his heirs in Gen_9:1 ;

In continuation the first time this Dominion is associated with the word King is in:

Gen_17:6..thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.

And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee.

So here is where the roots of Dominion are by Faith an anticipation of a Kingdom on account of nations and kings coming from Abram now called Abraham. It should also be noticed for future compilations that Abraham is promised to be increased into nations and kings:

LXX 17:6 And I will increaseG837 you exceedingly exceedingly. And I will establish you for nations;G1484 and kingsG935 from you will come forth.

There is no place in this statement for Spiritual sons of Abraham, rather in both the Hebrew and the great a very simple Reality of agriculture is promised, with out need of a spiritual interpretation, that is from this Father of Fruitfulness, Abraham, will come literal seed, and literal children, which will become an Ethneh or a Ethnically related people by a common father “Abraham”, a race of common origin which will have Kings (MaLeKIM in the Hebrew or Basileis in the Greek-plurals).

THE PRO-GOSPEL of ABRAHAM

This is important because this portion of Scripture to Abraham is by extension, what Paul identifies as part of what is called the Gospel in Gal_3:8 And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the nations through faith, preached before the gospelG4283 (literally: pro-evanggelisato / προ-ευηγγελισατο )unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed. accourding to Gen_12:2-3, which inturn transfers by the same message to the following promises Gen_13:16, Gen_15:5, before Abraham’s circumcision and after in Gen_17:5-7, (Gen_17:16, Gen_18:18, Gen_22:17, Gen_28:3-4, Gen_28:14, Gen_32:12, Gen_46:3; Gen_48:4; Exo_1:7; Num_1:1-65 and beyond.) It is well to note that the English phrase ‘preached before the gospel’ is only derived by 1 triple compound word with the suffix which gives the gospel a present tense position, prefixed by the word ‘pro’, thus telling us that the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the nations through faith pro-evagelized at that very time to Abraham… This is the ground word of the Gospel of the kingdom!

Exo_19:5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:

Exo 19:6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.

forwarded to the Gentiles or nations sprung from the loins and seed of Abraham by Peter the ambassador in:

1pe_2:5-9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

1Pe 2:10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.

These are the Nation of Abraham, Abraham’s fruitfulness, being seen in the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, in Exodus at the very chapters where we are told that YHWH spoke from Heaven…a kingdom of Heaven.

By this promise of Kingship to proceed from Abraham carried into the time of Moses, whose giving of the Law made direction for the King: And to Moses YHWH again reveled His Law of His King, and thus of God’s Kingdom:

Deu_17:14 When thou art come unto the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, and shalt possess it, and shalt dwell therein, and shalt say, I will set a king over me, like as all the nations that are about me;

Deu 17:15 Thou shalt in any wise set him king over thee, whom the LORD thy God shall choose: one from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which is not thy brother.

Deu 17:16 But he shall not multiply horses to himself, nor cause the people to return to Egypt, to the end that he should multiply horses: forasmuch as the LORD hath said unto you, Ye shall henceforth return no more that way.

Deu 17:17 Neither shall he multiply wives to himself, that his heart turn not away: neither shall he greatly multiply to himself silver and gold.

Deu 17:18 And it shall be, when he sitteth upon the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write him a copy of this law in a book out of that which is before the priests the Levites:

Deu 17:19 And it shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the days of his life: that he may learn to fear the LORD his God, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them:

Deu 17:20 That his heart be not lifted up above his brethren, and that he turn not aside from the commandment, to the right hand, or to the left: to the end that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he, and his children, in the midst of Israel.

After this came Saul who failed, then David who was given the eternal kingship ad of whom all the King’s of Israel have sprung to this day. Yet David or any of His sons did not attain to the measure of this Law, no matter how righteous the records and chronicles relay their actions. Until the beginning of the Gospel of Jesu Christ.

Yet this was by this scriptural descent the King was to come, and the king’s sons.

The people of Judah, hearing the preaching of John the messenger and Christ Jesus the Message of the Word of this very Law made flesh according to Joh_1:1-14, this Kingdom Law summarizes the person of the Anointed King of Israel our Israelite ancestors longed to see fulfill all the proclamations of the Gospel by the Law and Prophets, to set the people’s feet aright on the path which led to righteousness, justice and mercy; the stern Word of God which breaths upon flesh and it withers as grass, yet it’s Spirit and testimony stands forever, it is alive, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Heb_4:12

It was to this Kingdom anticipated but not prepared for our Christ came, and his Angel came before him, the people seemingly to not understand the measure of repentance required to have such a kingdom…Do WE! DO WE UNDERSTAND WHAT KING WE ARE SUBJECT TO?

Consider a Reading from a Septuagint /LXX translation of Isa_9:6-7

For a child was born to us; a son was given to us, of whom the sovereignty became upon his shoulder; and his name is called, Messenger of great counsel, wonderful, counselor, God’s mightyG2478 potentate, ruler of peace, father of the coming age.

For I will bring peace upon the rulers, and his health.

And great is his sovereignty, and of his peace there is no end upon the throne of David, and his kingdomG932 to set it up and to take hold in judgment; even with righteousness from the present and into the ages. The zeal of the lord of Hosts shall do these things.

(Interest mention: ισχυροςG2478 is the Greek word for prevail when Jacob’s name was changed to Israel.)

The Gospel of the Kingdom

Pt. 2

John The Angel

The Messenger of the Covenant

 

Notice the way in which the Gospel of the kingdom evangelized:

Mar_1:15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

This statement has within it’s construct some crucial evidence in finding the meaning of the statement it self.

  • The time is fulfilled

  • The kingdom of God is at hand

  • Repent and Believe (Faith or Trust) in the Gospel

    (Due to the nature of the points Repentance shall lead, followed by The Kingdom which is at hand.)

This is the scope of our Study in this series: to understand as best we can these 3 aspects of Christ’s ministry which we know as well from the biblical testimony that John was preaching this same Kingdom and Gospel message of Repentance:

Mat_3:1 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judah,

Mat 3:2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

and Matthew’s record as well tells us that Christ used the same language as John:

Mat_4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

This message of the Kingdom come was directed in ministry towards the same people the entirety of Scripture is written to:

Mat_10:5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:

Mat 10:6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

Mat 10:7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

The constructed order of Mar_1:15 sets the fulfillment of this Kingdom of God accompanied by repentance and the Gospel: briefly, it is of necessity to allow for the Greek words which are translated ‘Repent’ and ‘Gospel’ as to assure the collective evidence needed for establishing a definition. As the LXX is as well written in Greek it is a great translation of the Hebrew Scriptures to ascertain this evidence. As well there are some simple definitions as told by James Strong (one of the most used Lexicographers to date on Biblical Greek and Hebrew, and his works are greatly apprised by the Bible reading community as, it is upon much of his efforts to give the common English speaker a way to see beyond the English version, it is upon his efforts that a foundation was laid for many other tools we now have nearly 200 years later! And frankly it bothers me to hear many lesser men of biblical language to belittle Strong’s efforts as to elevate there own inferior work, when honestly one compares. I and others may disagree with a point of language derivation as sited by Strong, or as I often do go beyond the definition of the root word Strong’s gives on to the words composition, yet one should honestly acknowledge such a man’s efforts.)

When we consider the great number of references and direct sightings of this announcement of the Kingdom by John the baptist, Christ, and the apostles, we see foremost a call to repentance.

The Announcement of the Kingdom’s coming was a call to repentance.

Repent… or μετανοειτε / Meta-noeite

G3340

μετανοέω

metanoeō

met-an-o-eh’-o

From G3326 (meta) and G3539 (nooce)

Strong’s puts it: to think differently or afterwards, that is, reconsider (morally to feel compunction): – repent.

Some translations have this compound word translated ‘changing mind’, which conveys the same point as repentance in the liter English construction, yet it is the accompaniment of the mind changer that the statement gains it’s direction. In Mark it was ‘Repent and Believe the Gospel ‘, in Matthew it was ‘repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand’, the direction in which this sets the tone of repentance is based upon the affect this faith in the Gospel of the Kingdom has on ones mind, how it changes it. In other words, what ever was expected or known from the Scriptures, which was convayed by the Holy Spirit through the Law and Prophets in the written word of God, prior to the coming of John and Christ, is what was being preached in the statement ‘the kingdom of God (or Heaven) is at hand’, the beliefe, faith or trust which Christ and John were calling the people to was a fore spoken of and this message was now being preached that it was at hand or within reach, or able to be handled due to it’s nearness, the statement ‘at hand’ references the nearness of the kingdom, as to be close enough to handle it, know it or feel it . The call was to have an impact upon the mind of the people to know they had the kingdom near to them at this good-announcement known to us by the Saxon phrase Gospel.

Most Bible readers know that the Gospel is ‘the good news’ or ‘good tidings’, as a literal understanding of it’s meaning, yet it is of importance before moving on to consider some logic and language on this word ‘Gospel’ and it’s Greek original eu-anggelion.

Some logic:

Every Gospel is in need of a good- spealer or in Greek, every eu-anggelion is in need of a good angel, in moder English we now pronounce this word: evangel, yet it is Identical in meaning as the word Gospel. The later portion of the word is none other than angel which literally means in Greek ‘a messenger’, which may be a human messenger sent from YHWH or perhaps one from heaven.

The English Germanic word Gospel, derives it’s origin from the original Saxon form “Go(o)d-Spell” which is a literal translation of the Greek and or Hebrew compound word, consider one of the most early “English” translations of the story of Christ, the translation of the

“West Saxon Gospels” of 1175:

Mar_1:1 Her ys godspelles angin hælendes cristes godes sune.

Literaly. Here is the Good-spell again (archaic. beginning, from the top) of the Healer Christ god’s son.

(“Jesu” literally means Savior or Healer)

This is how the majority of the world has started to use the archaic Saxon word for “Eu-aggel”, we now pronounce ‘Evangel’ as the word is easily seen by the mindful English speller: Go-Spel which is a compound word for God – Spel or Good- Spell: as the meaning of the Greek “Eu” is “Good” turned to the shortened form of “God”, and then contracted to “go”. As for the Archaic “spel” which is modernly “spell”, yet it’s more rooted definition is defined by

Noah Webster in 1828 is

Spell

SPELL, n. [The verb primarily signifies to throw or drive, and is probably formed on the root of L. pello. In some of the application of spell, we observe the sense of turn. We observe the same in throw, warp, cant, &c.]

1. A story; a tale.

So the “Go-spel” is simply the archaic Saxon words “Go(o)d-spell”

The Beginning of the Gospel

So in the Scriptures of Israel written in Greek we are looking for the time being fulfilled that will indicate the above aspects of this kingdom by repentance, faith and Good-message.

As sited above and in context with both messages of John and Christ, this Good-Message was accompanied by repentance or a mind change. As well prior in Mark as sited above to show the archaic use of the word Gospel we have Mark’s announcement

Tyndale 1526:

Mar_1:1 The beginning of the Gospell of Jesu Christ the son of God,

Mar_1:2 as it is written in the prophets, behold I send my messenger (angel) before thy face which shall prepare thy way before thee.

Mar_1:3 The voice of one that crieth in the wilderness: prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight (Eu-theias: lit. good-placment).

Mar_1:4 John did baptise in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance, for the remission of sins. (Trans. Tyndale 1526)

Notice how that the messenger or angel, John the Baptist, is the one crying in the wilderness and calling for the paths to be made ‘straight’ or Eu-theias, it is within this Greek word that we find the first portion of the Eu-angel, that is Eu or good, the good or well placed path or straight path, thus when we consider this from the Greek perspective, the Gospel or Evangelion is the message of the straight path, this was John’s contribution to the Gospel.

Since in this very place we are told this is the beginning of Christ’s Gospel and it is ad-fixed with Mark’s own understanding of this message he pulls from the prophets to validate his claim: Seemingly by compare the Prophet quoted is

Mal_3:1 Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me (Heb. and Gk: literally says ‘before my face’ L-PaN-Y / לפני) : 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.

Mal 3:2 But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap:

Mal 3:3 And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.

Mal 3:4 Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the LORD, as in the days of old, and as in former years.

Mal 3:5 And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger , and fear not me, saith the LORD of hosts.

Mal_3:6 For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

This ending sounds strikingly familiar in sentiment to Heb_13:8

The LAW

and

The Messenger,

and

The WAY

Before moving to the next prophet it is advantagous to also consider the siting from the Law and it’s context which Malachi is quoting:

Exo_23:20 Behold, I send an Angel (Messenger, in the Hebrew the word is MLAK) before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.

Exo 23:21 Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him.

Exo 23:22 But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries.

Exo 23:23 For mine Angel shall go before thee, and bring thee in unto the Amorites, and the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites: and I will cut them off.

Exo 23:24 Thou shalt not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do after their works: but thou shalt utterly overthrow them, and quite break down their images.

Exo 23:25 And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.

Exo 23:26 There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: the number of thy days I will fulfil.

Exo 23:27 I will send my fear before thee, and will destroy all the people to whom thou shalt come, and I will make all thine enemies turn their backs unto thee.

This particular aspect of this siting in reference is to John, he was the messenger, the angel, the MLAK, whom the people were to fear and obey. It is easy to find ones self applying the statement to Christ, yet it is very directly referencing John. As Christ is the way.

Joh_14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Joh 14:7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

 

MLAK references a kingdom role, in the Hebrew, the exact same Hebrew word is used regularly to describe a king, it is not insignificant that this Gospel we are are focusing on is the Good-Message of the Kingdom, and the Hebrew word used here for messenger is as well the word for king.

 

 

The Vulgate’s Latin text of the prior , which is a translation of earlier manuscripts in 405ad by Jerome forwards truly the quote of the Prophet Isaiah as well as in both mark and Matthew’s reference to the Preaching of John’s Gospel.

Joh_1:23 He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias.

Isa 40:1 Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God.

Isa 40:2 Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the LORD’S hand double for all her sins.

Notice just before getting to the quote John uses, the context is of Jerusalem’s return from warfare, her iniquity is pardoned, her punishment time is accomplished, this is called to attention on account of the situation of

The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand…Mar_1:15

Isa_40:3 The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.

Isa 40:4 Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:

Isa 40:5 And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

Isa 40:6 The voice said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry? All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field:

Isa 40:7 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: because the spirit of the LORD bloweth upon it: surely the people is grass.

Isa 40:8 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.

So we see the mountains being brought low, the valleys being raised, thus a leveling is having by the evangelism of John, repetance shown and confessed in Baptism is enacted in preparation for the coming Kingdom which is at hand, the reminder of the meaning of the message is the illustration given by Isaiah of grass which flourishes and fades and dies away, yet the eternal aspect of this Gospel, this good message, these good tidings cried upon the mountains is: ‘All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field:..The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever. ‘

Echoed in the preaching of John to the same function of the Holy Spirit:

Mat_3:11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit, and fire:

Mat 3:12 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.

Then we hear:

Isa_40:9 O Zion, that bringest good tidings (Ev-angelizing: Gospel), get thee up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings (Gospel), lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of Judah,

Notice to Zion, notice the evangelism going forward, the Gospel, the good-message:

Behold your God! Isa_40:10 Behold, the Lord YHWH will come with strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.

Isa 40:11 He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.

That is the faith of the’Good-Message’ it is the ‘straight path’, He is the ‘Way the Truth and the Life ‘ found in the coming Shepard and King of Zion who rules by YHWH’s arm!

So here is my question in ending this 2nd part of this Message,

  • Is this the Gospel you understand in the preaching of John and of Christ?
  • Is it a call to repentance by the word of our God that stands for ever?

that is a mind change or a repentance on account of the Kingdom which is at hand?

  • Is it a Gospel, a good message that the wicked will wither away by the Spirit of God?
  • That those who walk by faith in these GOOD tidings, Evangelion of the Way the Truth and the Life of Christ which we come to the Father?

This is a call to repentance, to walk in the way of God’s WORD, to walk in the Truth, of God’s WORD and to walk in the Life of God’s word in order to get to the promised land which Christ leads us to. Repentance leads us to John’s Baptism, John has lead us to Christ, Christ’s Way leads us to the Father…and there is no other way to achieve the Kingdom, to enter into it but by Him.

Please do not misunderstand, this is not speaking of Faith with out works, I am speaking of obedience to the voice of the Word of God Breather by his Spirit for us to walk in to show our sanctification by the message we have received:

Mat 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

Mat 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

And to the point first point of Mar_1:15 the time of fulfillment, we shall explore in the next message, as well as how the wicked seek to take the kingdom by force…

The Gospel of the Kingdom

Part 1

Christ the King and Head

Christ the Word and Foundation

There are 2 major points which should be made in both the understanding from which this message and all others offered come forth, that is that first and foremost to quash the insolent supposition put forward by those who have, as well as those who may misidentify the importance of the focus upon the Word of God, the Law of YHWH and the Testimonies of Scripture. As there are those who suppose that upholding the perfection of Scripture beyond doubt of it’s abrogation in any way or by any force, is not ‘christian’, insomuch as this faith in the validity and immovable foundation of the WORD of GOD particularly as it pertains to the Law of God is even to the unknowing mind, in opposition to Jesus Christ; that is there are those who are offended at the Gospel of the Scriptural record and Testimony as contained in the faith of those such as my self who try and practice the Law of YHWH God to the best of their ability while living in the flesh, just as well even by those thing which we can not practice, therefore we do not practice them, by our belief that those things contained in the Law of God are nonetheless Perfect, such as the tabernacle and or temple order, or the operation of the priesthood, as well as ever offering and or sacrifice ever spoken of by the Word of God, all of it is perfect, every WORD of God is true, pure faithful.

It is to this point the following shall go forward, upon this premise

Heb_13:6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

Heb 13:7 Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God:

whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.

The APB Trans says: whom contemplating the result of the behavior, you imitate the belief!”

Heb 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

Heb 13:9 Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines.

It is by this Christ who is the Same yesterday today and forever that we place our faith and trust in, to direct our behavior or conversation.

Thus all messages which I offer come from the simplicity of Faith in the inerrant WORD of YHWH God, that is a Biblically Realistic understanding which seeks to show that the Bible as the WORD of God: Perfect, inerrant, and divinely inspired in it’s origin, all of my Faith from which we get our Hope is through this book and the belief that it has been preserved through the Grace and Providence of He That Is God, the Scriptures of course bear this out continually, but for one who doubts the relevance, and Salvation contained in the Scriptures as Holy there is no Chapter and verse which will ever be enough to convince (as the KJV calls) the gainsayers (in the Greek the word gainsayers is translated from Anti-logo literally those who are against the word).

Yet for those who have tasted and seen that YHWH is Good and that God is true but every man a liar, we know this:

Rom 15:4 For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.

As well we may have our hope in 2Ti_3:15-17 which tells us that it is the knowing of the holy scriptures…are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. and that : All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

This is the lesson for the Church, the Ecclasia of Christ. The Prophet and King David tells us Concerning the Law that that it is Perfect in Psa_19:7,

Psa_12:6 The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.

Pro_30:5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.

Pro 30:6 Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

No matter what your eschatological persuasion is or what your denominational endoctrination is, the Fact is that the if we believe by faith that we have gained Salvation by that which is taught in the Bible then we consent that the Word of God is true, and if we consent that it is true then according to Psa_119:160 God’s… word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.

Thus I offer in every message we shall cover and have covered that every Word of God is true, it is Truth, it is applicable in some way to our life as followers of Christ as Christians, no matter what part of the bible: old testament or new testament, Law, prophets, histories or wisdom, All which are written in the scriptures are founded upon the Law of God as their foundation, every Word of God rests on that primary foundation founded in God’s Law, as our ability to see the faculties of Judgment used by God Almighty. From Genesis to Deuteronomy every word which is written in the Pentateuch is perfect and true it is as Hebrews 13: the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

The rule which keeps us back from Being carried about with divers and strange doctrines, it is the foundation of the Church, the LawfulCommandments, statutes, precepts and Judgments of YHWH,.

One might object at this point as many have done to be in times past after making this statment, and site

Eph_2:20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;

Eph 2:21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:

Eph 2:22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

Which brings me to the second major point of understanding.

That these two statements are one and the same, that is Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. 2Ti_2:19

Iniquity is translated from the word a-dikias, the letter A being the prefixed negative particle to the word for righteousness, thus, literally means to be ‘void of righteousness’. This Iniquity which stands as a determination of the seal of God upon a proper foundation is then the naming of the name of Christ in conjunction with the departure of unrighteousness. Thus the foundation taught by the Apostles and prophet having Jesu Christ as the head corner stone of the foundation, creates a building fitly framed together to habit the Spirit of God, this is describing nothingness than the foundation we are called to in the principles of the doctrines of Christ a foundation founded in repentance from this unrighteousness, that is that Jesus Christ is the WORD made flesh according to John 1:1-14 for the very reason David tells us that the word of YHWH is true from the beginning and shall endure forever, that is that the Word of God, as found in His law which divides and separates good from evil, and teaches ADaM Man Judgment by YHWH’s directives is personified in the Man Jesus Christ, thus offering us a holistic foundation to be built upon:

Consider:

Heb_5:12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.

Heb 5:13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.

Heb 5:14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

Heb 6:1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,

Heb 6:2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.

Heb 6:3 And this will we do, if God permit.

Our calling is to move beyond the milk, which is found in the Law of God and repentace from the sin which has held us in bondage, disallowing us as

Eph_2:12 reads: That at that time we were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:

Eph 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus we who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.

Eph 2:14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;

Eph 2:15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;

Eph 2:16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:

Eph 2:17 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.

It is here that we may now build and move beyond the Idea that the Law of God is to arduous or strenuous to allow us to use it as our measure of righteousness, for Christ has given us the ability as both head of the Church and Foundation, it is exactly by His blood we water and hydrate the mortar of this holy temple, this house hold of God, this citizenship of the Common wealth of Israel; it is by the blood of His covenant we are empowered to believe in the whole word of God, and having no fear of the enmity as long as we are sealed with the proof of our calling by our departure from iniquity/ unrighteousness as we discover it’s hiding place in our life.

Hebrews goes on to say in Chapter 6

Heb_6:4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost,

Heb 6:5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,

Heb 6:6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.

Thus on these two point it is concluded that the two are in Biblical reality one and the same, that is that in every word ever spoken by YHWH God Almighty is the person of Jesus Christ, thus I can never nor can any one ever quote any portion of the Holy writ of God’s Word and not speak of the perfect life of Jesus Christ the Son of God, who is the Word made flesh. Our perfect example.

AMEN

In the last message A Common Law for a Common-Wealth,

The Common Law of God, the entirety of the focus was concerning the Government which the Christian church should have, as it pertains to: Self Government, Family

Government, National Government and Land Government; when the word Government is used attention should not only be called to the Ideas of what we call principalities or municipalities, that is the rule of civil conduct prescribed by the supreme or principal power in a state, rather our mind should be drawn to the Idea of Control or restraint in what so ever governmental position YHWH God has placed any particular member of the Church of Jesu Christ in.

It is here we exchange with our prior subject matter, as we are told very plainly that:

1Co_11:3 …the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

As well

Eph_5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

 

Col_1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

Thus, The Church as spoken of according to the Scriptures is as well a functionary part of this Government process as it is explained above and seen in conjunction with the Laws of God explained in the Common law of God particularly in all of the family organized and regulated order of the Congregation, which is a synonym for the Church, as when we read such words in the LXX we often time find the very same word as translated from the Greek Ecclesia, which is the Church in Brithonic English, thus when we read this family constructed Church or Ecclesia, congregation of the LORD we understand why such laws contained in Deu_23:1-6 are mentioned.

It was this fruitful multiplicity mandated to ADaM for the purpose of Dominion according to Gen 1:26-28, a Governance and Godly Government is that which starts within the individual Covenant recipient joined in marriage by a Godly union which is fruitful and terminates with National Government. This is the Origin of the Church, and it is for this Cause Christ is recognized as the head or husband of the Congregation of Israel otherwise known as the Church or Ecclesial, which is the body of Christ.

The fruit of this union continues the Seed of the Word in the hearts of the Covenant children, as Christ taught plainly concerning the Gospel of the Kingdom of God in Luk_8:11The seed is the word of God.

It is this seed in the fertile hearts of the children of the Kingdom, the church which will as well Bless the world and all the families of the earth accordingly to the dominion mandate which the descendants of ADaM had received as an inheritance, that which was passed on to Abraham Isaac and Jacob Israel Gen_12:3; Gen_18:18; Gen_22:18; Gen_26:4; Gen_28:14, a Covenant inheritance which then had come full circle in the one specific seed which came in the ma Jesu the Christ. Thus, is this holistic Government, as pronounced by God the Father through His WORD which He had caused to be made flesh according to Joh_1:1-14 which stands in this age as our savior, our Lord, our prince, our King, it is Christ the Head of the Church which serves as our example.

The book of Hebrews starts in saying

Heb_1:1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,

Heb 1:2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

Heb 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;

Heb 1:4 Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.

Heb 1:5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?

Heb 1:6 And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.

Heb 1:7 And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.

Heb 1:8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.

Heb 1:9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

It is unto this Government we as the Church are called by one calling, unto the biblical and Lawful New Covenant made in the blood of Christ, according to commandments, statutes and judgments of Almighty God we are Governed, that is by His Law, the Same Law which defines sin and calls the Sons of God into perfection by the love of God:

The ambassador of the Gospel of Christ, John tells us this:

1Jn_3:3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.

1Jn 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.

1Jn_3:5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.

1Jn 3:6 Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.

our Christ and brother is said to have in him is no sin.

So it is that even in the affairs of this life amid a crooked and perverse generation we are told it was to this calling like Christ hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:

1Pe_2:22 Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:

1Pe 2:23 Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:

1Pe 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

1Pe 2:25 For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.

This is full Government is entirely bound up in the man Jesu the Christ, and in His conduct, He as the Word made flesh had all things in His Body and life under subjection to the the Word which was spoken before His flesh had ever been made, the essence of His perfection being found in the same Holy Spirit which reveled the Gospel through out the Scriptural testament, it is to this Faith and life we as Christians are called to walk if indeed we are members in particular of the Body of Christ and Children of the Kingdom.

If it would ever be asked, where in this common law is Christ? or Where in this Common-Wealth of Israel we described is Christ? Our emphatic answer should be as Head! and as Head as King, and as King it is Christ who is Head of state, the Head of the Kingdom of God and of Heaven, and of the Common-Wealth the body politic of the Church.

It is to this Kingdom of God which our focus must be now be called after establishing by the Scriptures the Headship of the Son of YHWH over the tribes of Jacob as His righteous servant according to Isa_49:3-9, as well it is to self Government we are called to press by love closer into image of Christ.

This introduction to this new focus is aimed at entrance into the kingdom, into the Church and into the Body of Christ. Notice the way in which the Gospel of the kingdom evangelized:

Mat_3:1-2 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,  And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

and

Mat_4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

and

Mat_10:5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:

Mat 10:6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

Mat 10:7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

It is to this point the next part of this message shall focus upon.

ReNEWed COVENANT Ministry

servant@renewedcovenantministry.com

Thou shalt not Covet thy Neighbour’s house,

Thou shalt not Covet thy neighbour’s wife,

Nor his manservant, nor his maidservant,

Nor his ox, nor his ass,

Nor Any Thing That is Thy Neighbour’s.

Exodus 20:17 / Deuteronomy 5:21

 

There is no significant difference in the Hebrew text of Exodus from that of Deuteronomy for the purpose of this compilation to draw attention to,The Hebrew verb and nouns through out the text of both are identicle, English word desire as found in the place of Covet in Exodus is as well the same Hebrew word: HeMaD.

HeMaD is translated neutrally and context defines the word as to a positive or negative. Yet there is one thing to be noticed that  in seemingly every instance HeMaD can swiftly become evil in it’s context, no matter how innocent the desire, coveting, pleasure is, with in the back drop of every situation is the looming Evil of it’s desire beyond Justice or Righteousness.

In the Greek the word Epi-Thumeh-seis / επιθυμησεις G1937 is a compound word constructed into a verb, which is that of epi- added to the root word to show supper-imposition, this is still done in English words taken from Greek which we still use (Epidemic, epilogue, epitomize), that is: on, upon in the sense of beyond (G1909) + the word Thume , a word which in scripture is used to signify the essence of a matter or situation, it is the word used to describe God’s pondering on why he made wicked Adam in the earth Gen_6:6 , it is the essence of Esau’s anger against Jacob Gen_27:45, the longing of Jacob towards his fathers house Gen_31:30, as well it is essence of the inscents of the altar of YHWH Exo_25:6, the word indicates as our English still shows the ‘Theme’ of the situation, thus together this word shows the epi-theme, it is ‘beyond the theme’ the intensity of the theme. A related word, Epithem, in medical terms this a word still understood as a medical treatment to be applied externally, An external application of a topical medicine. Such as a liquid in which cloth is dipped for pain relief or healing, to be applied to an area of the body in need of treatment. Offering the Idea of placing the substance to aid upon the area; as well if the liquid in which the cloth was dipped were damaging to an area it would nevertheless be a epithem, yet not for the purpose of healing, but rather for the purpose of causing illness.

SIN is an ILLNESS,

it starts with Epithumesis

 

In the Greek construct of the 10 Commandments, as was discussed concerning Adultery, and in noticeable distinction from the Hebrew construct, Killing, Adultery, Stealing, False witness, and Covetousness are all converted into conditions; as we would understand it’s grammatical construct today, that is all of the words describing the forbidden act have the ending of ‘σεις ‘ seis ‘ or ‘εις eis ‘ , thereby rendering the commandment as a forbiddence towards a conditional behavior, such as we may understand other Greek words in English, one who has the condition of Arthritis has affliction to what was once refereed to as the Artus, arteries of the limbs, one who has Paralysis, the inability to move, is the affliction of one with a Palsy, one who has the condition of Narcosis is want to use a Narcotics or to be overly tiered, sleepy.

This choice of wording makes the prior commands including this 10th commandment a condition as well.

As the people of Scriptural Covenant, one is assumed by birth into the covenant of ones parents, this may lead to the blessing of righteousness in obedience or curse by wicked disobedience and rejection (Lev 26:44-45), yet one who is born to Parents of the Covenant are covenant children in the flesh, and before them lay a choice: to become a spiritual child of the covenant, by placing the WORD of YHWH in ones heart and mind and inward parts or to take on the body of sin and death contrary to the body of the resurrected Christ by an infectious illness which treatens the health and Common-Wealth of Israel, yea, the which is the core of the Common-Wealth, as the Ecclasia / Church as the Body of Christ can not be affected by such illness, rather when such a illness is allowed to persist with in the epidermis of the body, that is the outer layer who is member to the Common-Wealth by mere parentage and not by the personal New Covenant of Christ; those outer portions must be removed from the Common body as not to destroy the Wealth when the infection is made manifest! The Condition and illness found in this conclusionary 10th Commandment is damning and dangerous, while it’s symptoms are hidden in there early stages with in the heart and mind full of Lust or Covetousness, desire or pleasure in those things which are not intended for the families of Israel to be engaged in, it is by this same illness of Covetousness that the wicked are allowed to persist in close proximity to the Body of Christ, thereby causing the Church to be bed mates with a body of death and causing the infection to become transferable by it’s lack of self treatment with the healing power of the Spirit of God.

The Ambassador Paul admonishes us to:

Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts / Covetousness thereof. Rom_6:12

Specifically, The Commandment speaks of Coveting that which is thy neighbors, as the word was used prior it is used now, with in the common-Wealth what is our neighbors is his, by the Lawful Right given by God as a Citizen, this Law aims to curb secession of God’s Kingdom contained with in the Common-Wealth of Israel’s inheritance, not only of possessions but of Covenant and Law give to the Congregation of Jacob (Deu_33:4) In Coveting that which is thy neighbors we covet that which YHWH’s has given others with in the Common-Wealth beside thee: His wife, His House, His servants, His animals or anything that is his truly. It is this Covetousness that fuels all sin contrary to the LAW, even by coveting any thing which is thy neighbors, calls upon covetousness directed towards a Kingdom of neighbors or brothers who posses the whole of God’s Law as an inheritance, thus implicating sin upon one who covets the breaking of those Commandments which seemingly to our fleshly mind only pertain to our personal relationship with YHWH; yet by moving beyond covetousness and manifesting sin in our actions we literally rob the Common-Wealth of it’s blessing and inheritance by God’s Law.

 

 

It is with this mind honed in on this illness that this last and 10th Commandment of the Common Law is spoken of by biblical context, as in the often mentioned poetry of Almighty God, this 10th command lay at the core of the very first ill against YHWH God the creator, a sin which sought to replace the very power of He Who Is God.

I-SR-A-EL

A people of Self Dominion

Ruled by the Law of YHWH GOD

The account of Genesis and the Origins of Adamic society is the pedigrees of the Ordained Common Law of ‘He who rules with God’ or ‘Israel’, it is this concept which was the intention of the dominion or governance mandate of Gen 1:26-28, and this conceptual title is found in the name given to Jacob and his son’s in the name of I-SR-AEL.

Covetousness is in the heart and mind, it is the beginning and the end of self government, that is the Governing of ones self, which is basis upon which all Commandments and Laws of God are kept, ignored or abandoned by the will of man; by the giving of this will to choose whom we will serve the nature of the spiritual likeness and image is perceived, it is at the aim of covetousness, desire or pleasure that the will of the inward man is made know and the will of the flesh made evident. It is here that Covetousness with in this Society is the Engine of both life and death, Good and Evil, blessing and cursing.

 

(EPITHUMET’ICAL, a. [Gr.] Inclined to lust; pertaining to the animal passion. Webster’s 1828)

 

Consider:

Covetousness /HeMaD, is first referenced

Gen_2:8 And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put those of the ADaM whom he had formed. (reference the LXX, and the Hebrew of Deu_5:24, Isa_6:12, Zec_11:6 as example of how this is not refering to one man named Adam)

Gen_2:9 And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

 

This country where Adam Folk were set to tend and till, there was grown pleasant or coveted crops and trees, beautiful in sight, good for food, as well in ADaM’s native land were 2 very special trees: Life, and Knowledge: of course we know Knowledge teaches Good and Evil.

(after the description of the home land, the native land it is told of ADaM’s Garden)

Gen_2:15 And the LORD God took the ADaM, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.

Gen 2:16 And the LORD God commanded the ADaM, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:

Gen_2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

So, according to Gen_2:9 this tree which is forbidden, The Knowledge of Good and Evil, is a pleasant or coveted tree, but it’s effect is death to ADaM in the day he eats of it.

This is where at this time ADaM is in the Garden of the Lord, he is given provisions of food, yet he is required even at this time work, tend or till this Garden to maintain his life, as well ADaM is given dominion.

YHWH God tells the ADaM, ‘it’s all yours except for that tree, that 1 tree is mine, you can have all the others and the tree of Life, but that one tree is mine alone’ As creator YHWH God has this Right of course to reserve for Him self any thing he desired, and what YHWH desired was the knowledge of Good and Evil reserved to Him self, it was His property, and stigma attached to that tree, regardless of what the opinion on the physical make up of that tree is, it’s stigma is it’s YHWH’s, He coveted it to be His Own, His pleasure, delight or covetousness, it was His property, it was His plain and simple.

And as ADaM was made in the image and likeness of God it was as well pleasant, desirable and coveted as beautiful to the senses of ADaM as well, as to what was desired is the focus is found in the next portion of the Holy text:

Gen_3:1 Now the serpent (Eh-NaHeS, or Gk. Opis: referencing a literal Serpent type creature) was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

Gen 3:2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

Gen 3:3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

Gen 3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

Gen_3:5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

 

Gen_3:6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good (desirable) for food, and that it was pleasant (good) to the eyes, and a tree to be desired (Coveted) to make wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

And for the present record, the serpant was not lying about the affect of the fruit of the tree, the eating of knowledge, as to open ADaM’s eyes as God’s to know good and evil, as YHWH himself says:

Gen 3:22 And YHWH God said, Behold, the ADaM is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:..

Consider Gen_3:6, this is a place where the pleasantness of this particular forbidden tree is described, wat it’s desire was, it’s pleasantness it’s Covetousness: this covetousness was spelled out and well defined by the angelic serpant, angelic, I say because this Serpent was a messenger, made by YHWH, accourding to Gen_3:1 “more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made”. Like the story of Balaam’s ass, who’s mouth was opened to persuade the madness of the YHWH fearing prophet Balaam, this Serpents mouth was opened for one reason, a reason the text clearly told us:

Gen 3:5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

God used this subtle beast to prove, test or try the ADaM. The Serpent plays the role of the divine revelation, an anomaly that is undoubtedly God sent, and it was, a situation so bazaar that the woman and man who partook of the situation would have to knowledgeably engage, willfully engage, that is as is shown in the woman’s contemplation of self convincing, it is description of the cognition of every action we make against another’s possessions as well as those things God has forbid his people to partake it by his parental guidance: personal desire, personal pleasure, selfishness, to the end of personal deification or heart placed Idolatry. (Leading us back to the first and second commandment, full circle.)

…believe not every spirit, but try the spirits…

…or an angel from heaven…

Gal_1:8 / 1Jn_4:1

Consider the Serpents part as described in

Deu_13:1 If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder,

Deu_13:2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them;

Deu 13:3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.

Deu 13:4 Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.

Paul as well teaches this same truth:

2Th_2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

2Th 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

2Th 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

2Th_2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

 

In the case of our fore bearers of ADaM Folk, they did not love the truth of God’s Word, thet didn’t believe it by Faith, they didn’t trust YHWH when He said “for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.”.

 

Thus no matter where the Covetousness comes from, even if from an angel from heaven, the Word of YHWH is greater, and is sustained, the simplicity of thou shalt and thou shalt not thwarts the non-commanded constructive inferences of any approach seemingly contrary to the Word of God.

The desire we have to take for our own pleasure is being curbed by this 10th Common Law in our heart and mind, before it is manifest in our life by our coupling Covetousness, desire or pleasure’s pull with the actual committing of any other Commandment: Killing, Adultery, Stealing or False witness agaist our neighbor.

And while not directly applied by the 10th Commandment, it is undoubtedly implied by the context of the word and it’s first case example as shown in the Account of Genesis as well as that which is seen beyond the pentauch that Coventing to Not Worship YHWH by Idolitry, Vanity, Ignoring the Sabbath, or Dishonoring Parents is as well Sin, which have it’s wage to be payed as Death in it’s manifestation.

Like Brute beasts made to be…

A Society that practices Covetousness is a society that has tasted of the forbidden fruit of desire and pleasure, which in and of it’s self is a heart and mind set that is not easily curbed. Like a brute beast is drawn by repetition to return to what it desires, mindlessly drawn by the pleasure of the experience had the prior day so man partakes of the same nature. Yet as well by Grace some who are called see this nature of covetousness in the flesh and break it’s condemnation.

For it is sin, taking occasion by the commandment, wrought in me all manner of covetousness.

For without the law sin was dead. For I was alive without the law once:

but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died.

Rom_7:8-9

 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?

Rom 7:24

I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord…

Rom 7:25

 

The LAW of YHWH IS TREASURE

to be Coveted!

Psa_19:10 More to be desired ( Coveted ) are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

Psa 19:11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.

Psa 19:12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.

Psa 19:13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.

Psa 19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

Solomon goes on to describe Godly Covetousness of YHWH’s treasured Law:

Pro_21:20 There is treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the wise; but foolish ADaM spendeth it up.

Pro 21:21 He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, righteousness, and honour.

Pro 21:22 A wise man scaleth the city of the mighty, and casteth down the strength of the confidence thereof.

 

Ending off with this admonition:

 

 

Rom_8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Rom 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

Rom 8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

Rom 8:4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Thou Shalt Not Bear False Witness

Against Thy Neighbour.

Exodus 20:16

and

Neither Shalt Thou Bear False Witness

Against Thy Neighbour.

Deuteronomy 5:20

In the English Bible of our KJV both Exo_20:16 and Deu_5:20, seem to be identical with the exception of the first 3 words of the forbidance. Yet in the Hebrew, there is one more noticeable difference than the arrangement of the negative command, and that is the word translated ‘False’.

In the prior and related compilation study of this same series on the Common Law of GOD, pt 2. the 3rd Commandment regarding taking ‘YHWH’s Name in Vain’ has covered these words to be discussed and how they are related as part and parcel to the understanding of this 9th Commandment, it is evident that without having a firm grasp on the falsity and vanity of the violation of the 3rd Commandment, the actual and literal understanding of the violation against the 9th Commandment contained in sinful treatment of one’s neighbor in somewhat incomprehensible. So it is that some information contained in the message relayed from the 3rd Commandment will be repeated in this compilation as well, yet for a more comprehensive understanding of this Law of God particularly, I would ask that one first listen to the 2nd part of this series which regards the 3rd Commandments. (The Common Law pt.2 LINK)

Before getting in to the 2 Hebrew words of focus and more importantly their meaning and then effect upon the Common-Wealth in their violation and in their keeping; one word, which is actually a prefix on the Hebrew word ‘neighbor’, is the word ‘against’, bear a false witness ‘against thy neighbor’. Some have supposed this Commandment to only disallow falsification of witness in the negative affect, against a neighbor, that is to damn thy neighbor, to bring a false witness against ones neighbor, in a court room setting, as in to bring a charge against him, yet this application is contrary to biblical context, as to be provided. The Hebrew word for ‘against’, as translated in the KJV is simply the prefix of the letter ‘B’ to the word neighbor, ‘B’ also is translated and means ‘to, unto, near, by, beside, before’ , the prefix represents the Idea of closeness, it as per holistic scriptural context is not limiting the 9th Commandment to a negative witness by falsehood in a court setting or in a setting of accusation of judgment, rather it is the general bearing of a falsehood ‘to, unto or by’ ones neighbor, the Idea of bringing falsehood to him in any way…un-discript. As well the very word witness implies Truth, as a thing certainly known.

An Illustration in Allegory

When Breading False with Witness,

Witness is always Forced!

The Common-Wealth of Israel is to guard against Falsehood in it’s Common Law, which therefore imposes it’s self upon the citizenry and society as a thing common within the action’s between neighbor to neighbor, the Idea of excepted falsity amid neighbors or friends in general conversation, in simple and mindless lying I wish to dispelled by an illustration to show how falsity is a repugnant standard by which to live, as it is a standard of destruction that will hereby allow vanity to rule the Nation from it’s Justice system down, then from it’s children upward in it’s natural order; Falsehood and Witness are two opposing creatures that have the ability to mate,albeit only in the captivity of ones mind, yet they shall bring forth fruit in the world.

After the vain Idol of falsehood is bowed to, by the committing of adultery by False with Witness , the half bred of in-absolute and meaningless conversation shall be begat for 3 to 4 generations, insomuch as this iniquity will pervade to the utmost: into the law and the covenant of the very Common-Wealth it was codified to preserve: In a society created to be seated upon God’s Word these mongrels will be paraded as legitimate, the bastard will thereby fulfill it’s own destiny by replacing the true, perfect and purified Law of God with it’s own dynastic equivalent in destructive force in opposition to the Law which sought to give life. The wage of Sin shall be payed, and the unfortunate truth is that it is only those who will not kissed that Idol or bowed to it’s likeness that will realize it’s father is Falsehood and that Witness had been taken by force, Justice has been perverted!

This is the state we look at in this situation, this is the importance of the establishment of the Common-Wealth of Israel to be seated on the Law of God which persists by the Holy Spirit of Truth and Wisdom.

The Two 

Forms of Realistic Falsehood

VAIN & SIQ

Consider:

In the commandments:

In Exodus the Hebrew word שׁקר׃ / SiQuR H8267 is translated false

לא / no תענה /shalt thou bear ברעך / against thy neighbor. עד /witness שׁקר׃H8267 false

In Deuteronomy the Hebrew word is שׁוא׃ / SUA H7723 is translated false

ולא / Neither תענהH6030 shalt thou bear ברעך /against thy neighbor. עד / witness שׁוא׃H7723 false

While both words are acceptable translations to the word false in English, the reason the language varies is because we are meant to learn the compound or dual spirit of these letters, as YHWH had both words used it is so that those who are called by His Name may ask Him what it is we should not do, that we may please him by our lives and our society.

As in the discussion of any law, the construct of the wording is important as to it’s intent, an intent that Israel is intended to understand.

Biblical Context

The only verses in the Pentateuch Law where the Hebrew word שׁוא / SUA (H7723 ) translated in Deu_5:20 as ‘False’ is found is in the following verses beside: Exo_20:7; Deu_5:11 3rd Commandment,

As well we have context and case, to help in:

Exo_23:1 Thou shalt not raise a false report: put not thine hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness.

Again the word SUA from Exodus 20:7, the 3rd Commandment is found translated ‘False’, while the context seems to be that of the 9th Commandment dealing with a the ‘false report’ of a ‘false witness’.

Venturing out side of the Pentateuch for context consider the substantiation of this word meaning ‘vain or empty’

Job 15:31 Let not him that is deceived trust in vanity: for vanity shall be his recompence.

 

Psa 12:1-2 Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.

They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.

God’s Word in opposition to the context:

Psa 12:6 The words of YHWH are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.

The form of false witness being referenced in Deuteronomy 5:20, as indicated by the word SUA is not identical to the form represented in Exodus 20:17, as indicated by the word SiQuR.

SUA refers to the type of falsehood which is vain, empty, mindless, ignorant, aimless: An example at law of this understanding is sited by Noah Webster as ‘ignoramus’: An ignorant person; a vain pretender to knowledge. , suitingly it could be described as ‘lying just to lie’, truly vain words.

While when dealing with the word found in Exodus: SiQuR and it’s related words refer to the same falsity of the witness, that is in it’s quality as being untrue, yet it indicates false intent, filled with falsehood for a reason, mindfully false, knowledgeably incorrect, aimed at injustice

Hebrew root SiQ is found a number of times in the Law, also dealing with these ‘ false matters ‘

Exo_23:7 Keep thee far from a false matter

(that is literally: ‘ Of words that are false (SiQuR) be far from’)

Of testifying falsely

Bearing  Falsity 

 

Deu_19:18 And the judges shall make diligent inquisition: and, behold, if the witness be a false witness, and hath testified falsely against his brother;

Deu 19:19 Then shall ye do unto him, as he had thought to have done unto his brother: so shalt thou put the evil away from among you.

Above the word SiQuR is used both times for the word false, and as well the same word translated in the Commandment as ‘bear’, is here translated ‘testified’.

A good example of the context of both the 3rd and 9th commandment may be seen in

Lev_19:11 Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie(SiQuR-H8266) one to another.

Lev_19:12 And ye shall not swear by my name falsely,(SiQuR- H8267), neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD.

Lev 19:13 Thou shalt not defraud (O-SiQH6231) thy neighbour, neither rob him: the wages of him that is hired shall not abide with thee all night until the morning.

This small but weighty substantiated arrangement of evidence from scripture shows the meaning of both aspects of the 9th Commandment and it’s use of the both the Hebrew word SUA referencing ‘Vain matters’ and that of SiQeR matters (pun intended), that is falsity with intent. Remember both aspects of this Commandment reference willful sin, that is to do so knowingly, even the falsehood which speaks to the idea of ignorance, the sinner bears a willfully: ignorant, vain, empty, careless, mindless ‘witness’ or ‘matter’, in ‘words’ : written or spoken. While the more sick idea to our morality is the idea of matters which we know to be false and perhaps have premeditated the effect of it’s witness, matters or words.

THE

CHRISTIAN WITNESS

Can Not Be

FALSE OR VAIN

In other words, when those who are Called by the LORD YHWH’s Name, those who claim the blood of the covenant to be written upon them, by the precious name of Jesu(s) Christ, that is as a Christian, when they speak to a matter is should neither be vain or false, the words which we speak as part of the common-wealth of Israel that is as joint heirs with Christ of His Kingdom, should be true words, pure words, words and witnesses and testimonies which have been tried and found to have substance: This would indicate particularly in matters of trial or judgment before a governing authority ordained by YHWH God, yet not limited to such, as the Commandment is not only focusing upon a witness in a court but in the witness of ones mouth, hand and actions as offered to ones neighbor or brother of the Common-Wealth of Israel, that is of his own Nation. There is not one persuasive shred of evidence that witness to the fact or to suggests that it is exceptionable practice of behavior under this 9th Common Law that would allow for fellow Citizen-brothers to practice general lying or vain speech one with the other; in other words the whole command is an admonition towards thoughtful and true dealings with in the common-wealth, brother to brother, neighbor to neighbor from general conversation unto judgment for sin. And as a people called by God’s Name, it behooves us to Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness. And their word will eat as doth a canker… 2Ti_2:15-17 “

Not only when we study the scriptures to give an answer for our Faith, are we to shun the profane and vain babblings, we are to as well have our conversation honest among the Gentiles ( 1Pe_2:12), to be men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom (Act_6:3), Providing for honest things, not only in the sight of the Lord, but also in the sight of men. (2Co_8:21) as our calling by His Name is to walk by Faith, thus every dealing we as members of the Common-Wealth of Israel and as joint heirs with Christ as Christians should convey our honest action which are dictated by our honest Faith, our truthful Faith which leads the brothers of Christ to be a thoughtfully considerate race begotten of the father, that is not a vain, ignorant, mindless, and empty witness of our faith, our hope with in us, by stupidly speaking unsubstantiated matters that we do not have understand on, or witnessing to a thing that by our ignorance on the matter will misrepresent the witness of our faith. As well, in the other form, the SiQR is to bear a falsehood in our witness, that is to turn our hearts to be he that worketh deceit, he that telleth lies, knowing that those who do such shall not dwell in the house of YHWH or tarry in his sight. as says Psa_101:7, to not meddle with falsehood as Pro_17:4 A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; and a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue.

It behooves us as those who earnestly desire not to take the Name of our GOD in vain to become the people of His calling who bear no false witness unto our neighbor.

Yet for the Godly we we are told:

Psa_119:104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.

It is of necessity that those who are called by the Name of YHWH and those who call upon His Name be honest, truthful, wise men and women of an understanding heart and spirit, as far as our cognation allow us to be by our emotional and mental nature.

CHRIST ON AVOIDING EVIL

It is not until after the a fore mentioned aspect of the 3rd and 9th Commandment is brought into focus that it is even appropriate to discuss the subject of: Swearing, Oaths, Vowes, and Judgment, this is because honest and true men are in no need of swearing such an Oath as they in their honest conversation have no need of such, opperating upon the principles of

Num_30:2 If a man vow a vow unto the LORD, or swear an oath to bind his soul with a bond; he shall not break his word, he shall do according to all that proceedeth out of his mouth.

which is well substantiated by our Lord Christ in his teaching in

Mat_5:37 But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.

As Christians we are pressed to have simple communication, and direct, for there is no place to swear in any way less than to swear by the name of YHWH when swearing is requiered.

Mat 5:33 Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths:

Mat 5:34 But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God’s throne:

Mat 5:35 Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.

Mat 5:36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.

The forgone mention of swearing not at all is specific to the idea of swearing ‘not at all’ by any other thing than upon the name of YHWH as the Law only establishes:

Deu_6:13 Thou shalt fear YHWH thy God, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name

Once Christians are honest

they can start to consider

Judicial Proceedings

As the verses of the Pentateuch and the case examples are reflected upon from Exodus 23, Deuteronomy 19 and Leviticus 19, specific instances of law are seen to directly reference the swearing of brother to brother or neighbor to neighbor, the object of an Oath as taken in the Name of YHWH, the LORD, is evident, as well the swearing of an Oath is part of Judiciary proceedings under certain circumstances. The swearing of an Oath, is a very serious matter, as stated by our Christ, when swearing is required is is due to some form of evil. The swearing in a judicial proceeding is to invoke honesty beyond the standard, it is used as a converse measure to hold a Brother-Citizen to account for the truth or falsity of his testimony, so that the actual incrimination may come from the swearing falsely or lying under Oath, which today is called Perjury. In this instance the man who asserts to know a thing must swear as to His knowledge of the matter as will he who is to defend from the accusation, true or false. The Use of the swearing of an Oath is among the highest forms of Evidence one may produce in a Judiciary setting, as it is first hand witness coupled with the witness of God, by evoking His Name into the matter beyond a common standard it places a multiplied level of guilt upon the one who uses the Name vainly, the act calls ones soul into account beyond the duration of life; the only evidence which is higher is the like in opposition of 2 or 3 witnesses and / or factually substantiated Evidence introduced into the matter contrary to the single witness and his oath.

A Case Example:

Exo_22:7 If a man shall deliver unto his neighbour money or stuff to keep, and it be stolen out of the man’s house; if the thief be found, let him pay double.

Exo 22:8 If the thief be not found, then the master of the house shall be brought unto the judges, to see whether he have put his hand unto his neighbour’s goods.

Exo 22:9 For all manner of trespass, whether it be for ox, for ass, for sheep, for raiment, or for any manner of lost thing, which another challengeth to be his, the cause of both parties shall come before the judges; and whom the judges shall condemn, he shall pay double unto his neighbour.

Exo 22:10 If a man deliver unto his neighbour an ass, or an ox, or a sheep, or any beast, to keep; and it die, or be hurt, or driven away, no man seeing it:

Exo_22:11 Then shall an oath of the LORD be between them both, that he hath not put his hand unto his neighbour’s goods; and the owner of it shall accept thereof, and he shall not make it good.

When either form of falsehood prior discussed, either vainly-ignorant or intentionally-premeditated, the matter must be delineated by a Judicious Elder wise and understanding, and known among the tribe, and in such a case the determined Judgment preordained is:

Deu_19:16 If a false witness rise up against any man to testify against him that which is wrong;

Deu 19:17 Then both the men, between whom the controversy is, shall stand before the LORD, before the priests and the judges, which shall be in those days;

Deu 19:18 And the judges shall make diligent inquisition: and, behold, if the witness be a false witness, and hath testified falsely against his brother;

Deu_19:19 Then shall ye do unto him, as he had thought to have done unto his brother: so shalt thou put the evil away from among you.

Restitution it is always the preferred Judgment to cause Brothers to be reconciled by restitution going forward, in the case of payment, for in the case of one who owes another, there is no damaged party more justified to have restitution than thy who have been wronged. In the event that one has in some form or another found an occasion to repent of a falsehood, the following is prescribed:

Lev_6:2 If a soul sin, and commit a trespass against the LORD, and lie unto his neighbour in that which was delivered him to keep, or in fellowship, or in a thing taken away by violence, or hath deceived his neighbour;

Lev 6:3 Or have found that which was lost, and lieth concerning it, and sweareth falsely; in any of all these that a man doeth, sinning therein:

Lev 6:4 Then it shall be, because he hath sinned, and is guilty, that he shall restore that which he took violently away, or the thing which he hath deceitfully gotten, or that which was delivered him to keep, or the lost thing which he found,

Lev_6:5 Or all that about which he hath sworn falsely; he shall even restore it in the principal, and shall add the fifth part more thereto, and give it unto him to whom it appertaineth, in the day of his trespass offering.

In such a case we see the place of repaying 1/5th of that which was the principal beyond the matter, and beyond this YHWH required an unblemished Ram payed to the priest hood or perhaps it’s estimated value?

In an Ideal Christian society established in brotherhood and good faith this incident would be resolved civilly, and between the two men of what ever the matter was, by simply taking one and the other at His honest word and knowing that neither would defraud, steal or trespass against the other willfully, yet this is not the nature of Men.

Thus when such a controversy arises the decision is ultimate to determine the truth of the matter, and to determine if either Citizen of the Common-Wealth is acting in an un-brotherly way, and to restore such a one by restitution.

The citizen members of the Ecclesia should not be found unworthy to judge the smallest matters…things that pertain to this life?

As the Apostle admonishes: If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church/ecclasia. I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren? 1Co_6:1-6

In such a case, Paul’s admonition is for brothers to appeal one to the other first and then to turn to a judge of the Ecclesia, providing the reprimand:

1Co 6:1 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints?..But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before the unbelievers.

1Co 6:7 Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded?

1Co 6:8 Nay, ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren.

1Co 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God?

This of course is the case when members of the Ecclesial are living under the principalities and powers of the darkness, and not under a righteous Common-Wealth, and that when the Judge which wields the power of punishment is unGodly.

 

A Single Swearing of Oaths or Vows

That is the Idea of one who swears to do a thing for another before Almighty God.

Multiple examples of men swearing one to the other to preform an action is regarded out side of the perjury prior discussed, and this due to the circumstances and place of who is involved, when for instance an oath is sworn between Abraham and Eliazar as to get a wife of Abraham’s kindred for Isaac to wed, or between Isaac and Amimelech a Oath of peace is made, and beyond the swearing of these Oaths, they show the invocation of God into a matter to establish it beyond the normal for Divine accountability, it as well is an invocation for YHWH’s help in the matter: this too may undoubtedly be the bearing of a false witness in the event of it’s willful disregard or thoughtlessness.

Swearing a Oath to God is a vow:

Also is the matter of a vow, which by biblical definition seems to only indicate an swearing of an Oath or promise to God Himself as to do a thing for Him or to Him, to this Solomon offers excelant advice:

Ecc 5:4 When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed.

Ecc 5:5 Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay.

Ecc 5:6 Suffer not thy mouth to cause thy flesh to sin; neither say thou before the angel, that it was an error: wherefore should God be angry at thy voice, and destroy the work of thine hands?

Ecc 5:7 For in the multitude of dreams and many words there are also divers vanities: but fear thou God.

It is a powerful thing to vow a vow to YHWH, as the scriptures evidently bear witness.

 

The Swearing of an Oath by YHWH

is

Called a Covenant

 

Deu_7:6 For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.

Deu 7:7 The LORD did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people:

Deu 7:8 But because the LORD loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the LORD brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.

Deu 7:9 Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations;

Deu 7:10 And repayeth them that hate him to their face, to destroy them: he will not be slack to him that hateth him, he will repay him to his face.

Thou Shalt Not Steal

Exodus 20:15 / Deuteronomy 5:19

The Hebrew word for theft is a word many people already know, as similar slang is used in American-English for the same action: GNaB or nab, perhaps a help in remembering the word?

The universal Idea of stealing or theft as a wrong among cultures and laws of diverse peoples as well as creatures is absolute, that is the Idea of one or many taking from another or others what is not theirs is a wrong; yet it may come as stumble to those who wish primary laws of morality held as Christian to be universally understood to all peoples that theft or stealing is not the same for every culture, while most peoples have a general idea of what is theft, what is so for one culture is not to another. This is the case even among cultures which are genetically identical, yet generationally separated by time. This is the case in today’s so called christian culture opposed to the christianity of our separateist ancestors in America, and those to their Israelite ancestors of Moses to Nehemiah’s day.

When Citizenship is spoken of with in the Common-Wealth their are 2 particular words which God Law uses over and over again, that is Brother and Neighbor as well the 3 biblical words the English Bible calls ‘Stranger’ are all brought into focus when we speak on this matter, and it is indissoluble inherited rights which make other peoples strangers to the common-wealth, and as such strangers are excluded from some protections afforded to the brothers of the citizenship of Israel, which are sin when commited one upon each other. As the philosophy of the Idea mentioned that most every people of the world have a custom against theft, it is just a mater of what theft is to that people; at Law, even in modern law, this aspect of persons is what divides stealing from authorized behavior (either authorized by law or by the peoples conplacency, it makes no difference, both set the standard of the people’s constitution at that given time).

For instance, as was spoken of in the prior message on the 7th Commandment as well as touched on in the 5th Commandment message in this compilation is the God ordained concept of Land possession, which in the Common-Wealth of Israel was YHWH owned, He is the land LORD and He has delegated stewardship or governance, dominion by tribal family possession:

Lev_25:23 The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land is Mine;for ye are strangers and sojourners with me.

Lev 25:24 And in all the land of your possession ye shall grant a redemption for the land.

Lev 25:25 If thy brother be waxen poor, and hath sold away some of his possession, and if any of his kin come to redeem it, then shall he redeem that which his brother sold.

Lev 25:26 And if the man have none to redeem it, and himself be able to redeem it;

Lev 25:27 Then let him count the years of the sale thereof, and restore the overplus unto the man to whom he sold it; that he may return unto his possession.

Lev 25:28 But if he be not able to restore it to him, then that which is sold shall remain in the hand of him that hath bought it until the year of jubile: and in the jubile it shall go out, and he shall return unto his possession.

Lev_25:34 But the field of the suburbs of their cities may not be sold; for it is their perpetual possession.

Yet in our modern day the concept of Land is not possession in YHWH’s stead it is ‘private’ ownership, which in God’s vacancy through his ordained Law is more like Rent; for consider the modern culture and cultures of European descent: With out some form of payment required, the ruling principality and powers of government will come to your home, land or business and remove you and your family from it, and you will have no right that any court will recognize which will grant you possession with out payment of what that principality determines to be ‘due’.

In a society based upon God’s Law where land ownership is Almighty God’s and it is possessed as an inheritance by the Ethnic-nation of Israel, only a citizen of the Common-Wealth may claim his own ancestral land indefinitely that is perpetually with no intervention, by any ruler or any other person, none save the eviction by the Land LORD via war and dispossession, all other forms of a brother citizen or Israel being removed from his possession is theft. At such points when citizens of Israel are being removed, a clear line is drawn that a dyer need to repent before Almighty God is at hand, and a God ordained opposition to tyranny is of necessity.

So the culture most Europeans live under today would be tyrannical to their father’s who lived in the days of king Saul or perhaps Ahab, it is a matter of culture.

So it is, when speaking of stealing or theft in God’s Common Law it is defined by statute, YHWH, God of Israel is the determiner according to His Law of what theft is and is not, and as well what situations will determine the particular punishment to be executed by the Elders: Judges and Officers, the crime is to be judged according to Justice by the ordained diligent inquisition, and then as the well known Biblical Maxim teach:

Deu 19:21 And thine eye shall not pity; but life shall go for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.

Restitution

When contemplating Biblical stealing with in the Common-Wealth of Israel as Governed by the Common Law of the 8th Commandment, the understanding of Judgment for particular crimes being diverse one from the other becomes obvious as the Commandment’s violation is dealt with differently based upon the nature and object of the theft, as well as the circumstances surrounding it, yet one pervading absolution is consistent in judgment for this sin-crime between brother and brothers, neighbors and neighbors as well as Citizen and stranger, this is the idea of Restitution.

The term Restitution is in our legal language even today, Noah Webster defined it thus:

Restitution is made by restoring a specific thing taken away or lost.

2. The act of making good, or of giving an equivalent for any loss, damage or injury…

When we speak of restoring in the KJV we speak to the same point, as well.

In all cases Restitution is the final “act of making good”, and the determiner of what good is, is GOD.

Just Weights and Measures:

A Common Standard of Value

By the demand for Just Restitution the essentiality of equivalent value must arise, that is the equal value of a thing payed in money, yet only when allowed by the damaged party instead of the actual lose by similar representation, such as beast for beast, thus an estimation of value must at times be set as to it’s equivalent with in the common-wealth in the event settlement of Restitution may be had by an acceptable medium of exchange, and that set by God’s Sanctuary.

Beyond the days of Abraham Adam’s people have been using precious metals as this medium of exchange.

Gen 13:2 And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold.

Both precious and common metal weighed as Shekels (ShQuL), a Shekel is simply a determined weight current at a given instance or time, or as currency among a Common-Wealth; in the case of Israel’s “The Sanctuary’ is to assay the shekel or weight that is currency:

Lev_27:25 :

And all thy estimations shall be according to the shekel of the sanctuary: twenty gerahs shall be the shekel.

This shekel was assayed in 3 precious metals, which until the 1900’s did not change in European societies.

Exo_25:3 And this is the offering which ye shall take of them; gold, and silver, and brass,

(copper: biblically known as Brass, not to be confused with the modern alloy of zinc and copper)

Bibically speaking the word for current money and Silver are one and the same, KeCeF. Silver was the common money of the common people, not withstanding the more valuable gold and less valuable copper coinage.

Thus the Law of God dictates from the commoner to the priest such law:

Lev_19:35 Ye shall not act unrighteously in judgment, in measures and weights and scales.

Lev 19:36 There shall be among you just balances and just weights and just liquid measure. I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt.

Lev 19:37 Therefore shall ye observe all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: I am the LORD.

AND

Deu_25:13 Thou shalt not have in thy bag divers weights, a great and a small.

Deu 25:14 Thou shalt not have in thine house divers measures, a great and a small.

Deu 25:15 Thou shalt have a true and just weight, and a true and just measure, that thou mayest live long upon the land which the Lord thy God gives thee for an inheritance.

Deu 25:16 For every one that does this is an abomination to the Lord thy God, even every one that does injustice.

When the word ‘weight’ is used in Lev_19:35 it is translated from the Hebrew word M-ShQuL, and is specifically dealing with the aspect of Currency or Money, that is the medium of exchange with in the Common-Wealth of Israel.

In Speaking of money we speak of silver as the average standard of currency between men of that citizenship.

It is that in order for any commerce beside simple trade a valuation and estimation is of necessity to be had in any society which will govern upon Law, as to allow for brothers to stranger to deal Justly one with the other, as to determine fair dealings from stealing and theft. While any honest agreement for any thing, either in buying or selling or in the case of restitution, their is an estimation of value in a monetary sense as to aid Justice between in commerce or controversy.

Exo 21:18 And if men strive together, and one smite another with a stone, or with his fist, and he die not, but keepeth his bed:

Exo_21:19 If he rise again, and walk abroad upon his staff, then shall he that smote him be quit: only he shall pay for the loss of his time, and shall cause him to be thoroughly healed.

As well

Exo 21:28 If an ox gore a man or a woman, that they die: then the ox shall be surely stoned, and his flesh shall not be eaten; but the owner of the ox shall be quit.

Exo 21:29 But if the ox were wont to push with his horn in time past, and it hath been testified to his owner, and he hath not kept him in, but that he hath killed a man or a woman; the ox shall be stoned, and his owner also shall be put to death.

Exo 21:30 If there be laid on him a sum of money, then he shall give for the ransom of his life whatsoever is laid upon him.

Exo 21:31 Whether he have gored a son, or have gored a daughter, according to this judgment shall it be done unto him.

 

Within the Common-Wealth of Israel the simple and intrinsic Common law of God couples Just measures and weights and scales by a monetary system using the ordained hard currency of Gold, Silver and Copper according to the precept of it’s Common purity, estimated and assayed by the Sanctuary, that is the same God ordained authority that over sees Judgment with in the Common-Wealth according to: Deu_17:9, Deu_19:17, they are the priests and the judges, which shall be in those days.

Therefore, by debasing the monetary system of the Common-Wealth with injustice or counterfeit coinage, as to adulter it’s purity commanded by precept, or to to attempt to replace hard money, by any person of any rank, is a debasement of the effectiveness of the justice of the Common-Law, and a robbery upon the Nation as a whole: such monetary debasement over turns the 1st commandment, as well, it is both an undercover attempt to man-steal the citizens of the Common-Wealth, along with a way to steal property and possessions of the Nation.

By the severity of the impact of debasing a hard and lawful money system is so severe that the use of any man made or fiat means, such as our modern use of Paper and or Electronic Bank transfers of contrived credits called money, would create a ‘monetary’ like system that would be controlled by the creators of the system, which would in effect control the holders and users of the contrived wealth. And thus the proverb which we are taught (1Ti_6:10) that the love of money is the root of all evil allows those who love to creator money to create all evil, as well as to get away with all evil with it; thus a government or banking system such as had today may easily escape the recourse of actual restitution even though that system may compensate an injured party, yet they do so with nothing, except for a currency they created out of thin air.

To allow the monetary system of a people to be controlled by a non-substance, such as paper and or electronic transfers, inevitably sets that society up for control by the selfish will of it’s creator…which is not YHWH God Almighty.

The Worst Forms of Stealing

are

Punished

by

DEATH

MAN-STEALING

Exo_21:16 And he that stealeth a man, and selleth him, or if he be found in his hand, he shall surely be put to death.

Deu_24:7 If a man be found stealing any of his brethren of the children of Israel, and maketh merchandise of him, or selleth him; then that thief shall die; and thou shalt put evil away from among you.

Within the Common-Wealth of Israel among the most heinous thefts a Citizen or Brother may commit is that of man-stealing.

Yet consider our modern day standard: In the matter of an arrest and detainment of an adult person, in some events the men or women are imprisoned and their freedom taken, in biblical language is man-stealing when the time In such Ward is not being used to determine the detained’s fate as to life or death.

“In-Ward”

Biblically, the status called “In-Ward” (Gen_40:3; Gen_40:7; Gen_41:10; Lev_24:12; Num_15:34) is the only time a Brother may be detained by Law, and it’s sole use it to determine life or death, with out such a status, especially when any form of price is attached to the persons release, it is Man-Stealing; the lawful examples found in Lev_24:12; (In one cercumstance we have a 1st generation Egyptian man born to an Israelite woman who blasphemed the Name of YHWH by cursing, by Deuteronomy 23:7-8 this man was not an Israelite nore would his child be for 2 more generations, thus In-Ward is used for the Stranger that is not of thy people), and in Num_15:34 (In-Ward is used upon a Citizen who broke the Sabbath wilfully, and was ass well put to daeth.)

Due to the prior understanding laid out from the prior commandments (found in this series) particularly that of the 5th Commandment pertaining to Parents, the absolute authority and ownership of children within the Common-Wealth resides in those children’s life givers, the contained in the generative Parents and lead in Headship by the Fathers. Thus, when another of any rank comes from the out side of this Righteous Paternal Headship and takes away another’s child with out absolute and evident consent of the Head holder, which may be had in hired or indentured servitude of ones Own Child, this act of taking a child with out consent, however, we now call Kid-Napping, but in Reality and according to YHWH God’s Law it is Man-Stealing as well.

Judiciary Judgment of Restitution by Elders

and

Summary Judgment by Land Owners

Exo_22:1 If a man shall steal an ox, or a sheep, and kill it, or sell it; he shall restore five oxen for an ox, and four sheep for a sheep.

Exo 22:2 If a thief be found breaking up, and be smitten that he die, there shall no blood be shed for him.

Exo 22:3 If the sun be risen upon him, blood for him; he should make full restitution; if he have nothing, then he shall be sold for his theft.

Exo 22:4 If the theft be certainly found in his hand alive, whether it be ox, or ass, or sheep; he shall restore double.

KJV from Hebrew

Exo_22:2 And if the thief be found in the breach made by himself and be smitten and die, there shall not be blood shed for him.

Exo_22:3 But if the sun be risen upon him, he is guilty, he shall die instead; and if a thief have nothing, let him be sold in compensation for what he has stolen.

Brenton from LXX

In the case of this particular theft two words from the Greek and Hebrew must be reconciled and the then the aspects of verse 3 as well need applied in context.

במחתרת / B-Me-HeThR-Th literally saying: double prefix B-in & M-from or of. together meaning With-in or by it: in the act of +HeThR: Digging, Braking, Rowing: the Idea of Uncovering (see Jer_2:34) + Th: shalt be, they are (femanin construct) = English: they are uncovered (discovered) within. Leaving us with the plain Idea of what we call breaking and entering, tresspassing, or burglary, (while not being limited to night time activity) Yet night activity would automatically constitute undercover actions.

(Uses of the root word HeThRH2864: Exo_22:2; Job_24:16; Jer_2:34; Eze_8:8; Eze_12:5; Eze_12:7; Eze_12:12; Amo_9:2; Jon_1:13)

In the Greek LXX the word διορυγματι / Dio-Rugmati is used.

The word Dio or Dia G1223 ..In composition it retains the same general import: – after, always, among, at, to avoid, because of (that), briefly, by, for (cause) . . . fore, from, in, by occasion of, of, by reason of, for sake, that, thereby, therefore, X though, through (-out), to, wherefore, with (-in).

And Rugmati which may be seen in Titus 1:3 used with the prefix of κή / KeH

G2782 κήρυγμα kērugma: From G2784; a proclamation

Rugus may indicate the English: to make a ‘Ruckus’

Thus in a compound understanding the same Idea is conveyed, that is in the discovery or uncovering of one, in this case the Greek speaks to the aspect of alarm. ‘they be within ruckus’.

It is by such an understanding that the understanding is offered that when the worst form of thief is found in the act of theft with in ones possession, and that thief is harmed or killed there is no case for recourse for that thief, or for charges of murder against the defender of his possession for such an action against a thief, day or night who he is caught in the act. Yet, according to verse 3

Exo_22:3 If the sun be risen upon him, blood for him; he should make full restitution; if he have nothing, then he shall be sold for his theft.

KJV

Exo 22:3 But if the sun be risen upon him, he is guilty, he shall die instead; and if a thief have nothing, let him be sold in compensation for what he has stolen.

Brenton -LXX

In this aspect of the verse it seem to indicate liability to the protector of his stuff and the restitution owed by the thief. The mention of the sun, is not to differentiate between day and night but indicate the length of time that had passed from the smiting and incident, therefore, consider this compound understanding ” If a thief is uncovered and he be smitten and die no one should bleed for the killing of the thief. But if the smitten thief live until another morning and be then killed by the own it is murder as the thief has been subdued, rather the caught thief is to pay restitution after the following morning by servitude, by the evaluation according 4 or 5 times the original theft or in equal value, as per verse 1 or by no less than 2 times according to Exo_22:4 And if the thing stolen be left and be in his hand alive, whether ox or sheep, he shall restore them two-fold.

Thus within the Common-Wealth of Israel, Governed by YHWH God’s Common Law, man committing undercover theft upon anther’s possessions would be non-existent and those with such tenancies would be swiftly culled from the flock or taught by the Justice of Restitution.

Before leaving off from the Idea of theft punished by Capital, the Justice of Almighty God speaks to the easily comprehensible maxims of His Perfect Law, as to deal with those thefts which would be interposed upon another and lead to the eventual or immediate death of the victim:

And so such Laws as well stand as the standard of Justice such as:

Exo_22:26-27 If thou at all take thy neighbour’s raiment to pledge, thou shalt deliver it unto him by that the sun goeth down: For that is his covering only, it is his raiment for his skin: wherein shall he sleep? and it shall come to pass, when he crieth unto me, that I will hear; for I am gracious.

Deu 24:6 No man shall take the nether or the upper millstone to pledge: for he taketh a man’s life to pledge.

Setting the example of the 2nd Protos Commandment operating upon Charitable Love:

Lev_19:18 Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD.

Evasion of Compensation and Liability is Stealing

Exo 22:5 And if any one should feed down a field or a vineyard, and should send in his beast to feed down another field, he shall make compensation of his own field according to his produce; and if he shall have fed down the whole field, he shall pay for compensation the best of his own field and the best of his vineyard.

Exo 22:6 And if fire have gone forth and caught thorns, and should also set on fire threshing-floors or ears of corn or a field, he that kindled the fire shall make compensation.

Exo 22:7 And if any one give to his neighbour money or goods to keep, and they be stolen out of the man’s house, if the thief be found he shall repay double.

Exo 22:8 But if the thief be not found, the master of the house shall come forward before God, and shall swear that surely he has not wrought wickedly in regard of any part of his neighbour’s deposit,

Exo 22:9 according to every injury alleged, both concerning a calf, and an ass, and a sheep, and a garment, and every alleged loss, whatsoever in fact it may be, –the judgment of both shall proceed before God, and he that is convicted by God shall repay to his neighbour double.

Exo 22:10 And if any one give to his neighbour to keep a calf or sheep or any beast, and it be wounded or die or be taken, and no one know,

Exo 22:11 an oath of God shall be between both, each swearing that he has surely not at all been guilty in the matter of his neighbour’s deposit; and so his master shall hold him guiltless, and he shall not make compensation.

Exo 22:12 And if it be stolen from him, he shall make compensation to the owner.

Exo 22:13 And if it be seized of beasts, he shall bring him to witness the prey, and he shall not make compensation.

Exo 22:14 And if any one borrow ought of his neighbour, and it be wounded or die or be carried away, and the owner of it be not with it, he shall make compensation.

Exo 22:15 But if the owner be with it, he shall not make compensation: but if it be a hired thing, there shall be a compensation to him instead of his hire.

Stealing Chastity

Exo 22:16 And if any one deceive a virgin that is not betrothed, and lie with her, he shall surely endow her for a wife to himself.

Exo 22:17 And if her father positively refuse, and will not consent to give her to him for a wife, he shall pay compensation to her father according to the amount of the dowry of virgins.

Stealing by Usury

And if thou shouldest lend money to thy poor brother who is by thee,

Thou shalt not be hard upon him thou shalt not exact usury of him.

Exo_22:25

The word Usury is not a word used nowadays nearly as much as in the past, this most likely due to modern societies’ desire toward exacting usury as well as having it exacted upon them as to satiate all wants beyond need.

When one speaks of usury, we speak of the Idea of gain upon the principal or original sum payed by the debtor for Using another’s wealth. Today we call this Interest. Some in our modern day who would wish usury to only be what they have termed “excesive interest” oppose the strictness by which Nehemiah believed God to have demanded in His Common Law for Israel when he rebuked the nobles and ruler for exacting 1/100th % and to prove it’s understanding as no meaning less than 1 % the nobles and rulers response to the rebuke was, “We will restore them, and will require nothing of them…” (Neh_5:11-12)

No matter what the substance loaned is:

Thou shalt not lend upon usury to thy brother; usury of money, usury of victuals, usury of any thing that is lent upon usury:

Unto a stranger thou mayest lend upon usury; but unto thy brother thou shalt not lend upon usury: that the LORD thy God may bless thee in all that thou settest thine hand to in the land whither thou goest to possess it. Deu 23:19-20

True Brotherly Love

When two citizens, yea brothers, are dealing with one and other, as to be in benefit for the Common- Wealth, that is to be Patriotic in the patriarchal sense, ones own people His Brethren are preferred as to establish the Kingdom by love and charity. The true citizen od the Common-Wealth of Israel is in fact brothers by flesh and bone and common parentage to his fellow citizen, it is by such a division between brothers, as to rule over one another with rigor (Lev_25:43) with in the lose of sight of the fear of God we divide our nation, it is as well by Not dividing our selves from all other peoples who are not our brothers, that the universal destruction of all peoples shall creep in as a thief, allowing the stranger to spoil the Common-Wealth which he is forbidden from entering.

Lev_25:35 And if thy brother be waxen poor, and fallen in decay with thee; then thou shalt relieve him: yea, though he be a stranger (GuR), or a sojourner (resident alien); that he may live with thee.

Lev 25:36 Take thou no usury of him, or increase: but fear thy God; that thy brother may live with thee.

Lev 25:37 Thou shalt not give him thy money upon usury, nor lend him thy victuals for increase.

Lev 25:39 And if thy brother that dwelleth by thee be waxen poor, and be sold unto thee; thou shalt not compel him to serve as a bondservant:

Lev 25:40 But as an hired servant, and as a sojourner, he shall be with thee, and shall serve thee unto the year of jubile:

Lev 25:41 And then shall he depart from thee, both he and his children with him, and shall return unto his own family, and unto the possession of his fathers shall he return.

Lev 25:42 For they are my servants, which I brought forth out of the land of Egypt: they shall not be sold as bondmen.

For an example of the intertwining relationship theft has with usury, and usury against Ethnic homogeneity and the well being of a Nation, the context of Love for God and neighbor according to the Protos commandments of God’s Law found, Neh 5:1-19 is a strongly recommended study.

Stealing, Theft, Robbery and Usury no mater of what it is, or of what the statute evaluates it’s Restitution at is a destructive force when allowed in a society, especially a Biblical Society. Its violation as stated prior in prior messages strikes at the very heart of God’s Kingdom, which in fact strikes at the New Covenant. Though theft may be among the least crimes to be committed in society, it is among the most severe Sins to be allowed to go unpunished.

Thou Shalt NOT

Commit Adultery

Exodus 20:14/Deuteronomy 5:18

(I would like to start by asking those who have not heard the compilation on the 5th Commandment of honoring ones parents to first listen to that message before this one or shortly after, as the two commandments are tightly tied together with blue thread.)

In order to understand the aspects of this Commandment within the Common Law of God Adultery must first be defined, starting with the English definition of the word found in our English Bibles:

Noah Webster’s 1828 D. of A. E.

ADUL’TERY, n. [L. adulterium. See Adulterate.]

1. Violation of the marriage bed; a crime, or a civil injury, which introduces, or may introduce, into a family, a spurious offspring.

Adulterate

ADUL’TERATE, v.t. [L. adultero, from adulter, mixed, or an adulterer; ad and alter, other.]

To corrupt, debase, or make impure by an admixture of baser materials; as, to adulterate liquors, or the coin of a country.

ADUL’TERATE, v.i. To commit adultery. Obs.

ADUL’TERATE, a. Tainted with adultery; debased by foreign mixture.

The fact that Adultery and Adulteration are so closely related may come as a shock to those who use words found in the bible with out care to their meaning. The fact that one who commits Adultery in Reality is Adulterating purity as it that purity was either created and ordained to be by YHWH God.

Defining Biblical Adultery

Greek Adultery

G3431

μοιχεύω

moicheuō

moy-khyoo’-o

From G3432; to commit adultery: – commit adultery.

However this Greek word is a compound which which has become a verb made up a simple idea English speaking people can understand with little effort: the compound is made of

G3427 μοί /moi

The simpler form of G1698; to me: – I, me, mine, my.

and

From a derivation of χέω cheō from which Chaos which we may understand easily as well, chaos in the the Greek understanding is the idea of pouring a thing out of a channel or vacancy, it is as we think of it in disorder.

Thus we have :μοι Moi / My + χευσ /Chaos = My Chaos being used as a verb in moixoseis

Hebrew Adultery

NAP :

H5003: A primitive root; to commit adultery…

The Hebrew word translated into our English word Adultery is the word NAP;

NAP is complex but expressive as it is a contracted compound word, like the word king-dom (kings-dominion), letters are dropped out to create a new word, common in Hebrew and English. Hear we may see the root NAH / נאה, meaning ( H4998 ) be at home, be beautiful, become, be, blended with the word AP/ אף ( H637 ) meaning accession (used as an adverb or conjugation); also… , and thus meaning ‘home also’ or ‘beauty also’, it seems to represent the idea of one going beyond the pleasantness of family, as in all forms of Adultery this is what the man of woman of the Common-Wealth of Israel does, they go beyond the home life YHWH God has ordained, thus adulterating the society.

In the literal Hebrew scripture the wording is לאnot תנאף׃ shalt thou adulter’, in the commandment the word is prefixed with the Hebrew ת / Th meaning ‘thou shalt’ ‘shalt thou’ and the English translators took the liberty assure it’s understanding as law by adding the synonymous meaning of ‘commit’. The exact wording of Th-nap is only used used 3 times in the Hebrew Scriptures and of that three times two times in the very commandment found in Exo_20:14 and Deu_5:18 , it is from this third use from Jer_3:9 some context is found:

Jer_3:8 And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery (NAP-Eh) I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.

Jer 3:9 And it came to pass through the lightness of her whoredom, that she defiled the land, and committed adultery (Th-NAP) with stones and with stocks.

In verse 8 the root word NAP is used in the word NAPEh which literally means ‘adultery of’ as may be seen in the Bishop’s bible, yet our actual word is seen in in 3:9 in “committed adultery”

This metaphoric verse shows the English definition given prior of Adultery and Adulteration, as the Adultery of whorish Israel was compared to a married woman, and the Adulteration what is done with trees and stones!

Adultery strikes at every aspect of Order

Adultery strikes at every aspect of ADaM’s purpose of creation

  • in the blessed mandate of dominion governance of multiplicity and fruitfulness and subdueance by replenishing (as described in the prior compilation on killing),

  • willful adultery as well hates God and neighbor and is reversive of the love commanded in the proto-commandments:

  • Adultery strikes at the 1st commandment in it’s willful violation, challenging God’s supreme sovereignty to dictate according to HIS Word sexual relations.

  • It strikes against the 2nd Commandment as it again sets ones self up or system of worship up which caters to ones self as the Idol of the heart to be bowed to,

  • It strikes against the 3rd Commandment by vainly taking YHWH God’s Name in vain by voiding the people of God’s calling,

  • It strikes against the 4th Commandment in that Holy worship is polluted by the actions and products of adultery,

  • It strikes against the the 5th Commandment, particularly, as it devalues or dishonors ones parentage it it’s very reproductive action or it’s lack thereof both of with will remove the people of God’s name from out of the Land,

  • It a strike against the 6th Commandment in that both the product of adulterous relations is illegitimate and should not have been created, nor are those which have committed to adulteration both have forfeit their lives before Almighty God, they have both killed them selves before the face of Almighty God and in certain cases the debased offspring they have made.

Historic look at Adultery

Consider Josephus a contemporary of our Lord’s time and how they viewed adultery:

1. AS for adultery, Moses forbade it entirely, as esteeming it a happy thing that men should be wise in the affairs of wedlock; and that it was profitable both to cities (society) and families (races) that children should be known to be genuine. He also abhorred men’s lying with their mothers, as one of the greatest crimes; and the like for lying with the father’s wife, and with aunts, and sisters, and sons’ wives, as all instances of abominable wickedness. He also forbade a man to lie with his wife when she was defiled by her natural purgation: and not to come near brute beasts; nor to approve of the lying with a male, which was to hunt after unlawful pleasures on account of beauty. To those who were guilty of such insolent behavior, he ordained death for their punishment. Antiq. Book 3, CH12:Vrs1

The question of what adultery is from a biblical and natural perspective in reality is a subject every Christian should wish to know, the 7th commandment is not only a prohibition of one who adulterates his neighbors wife by an illicit sexual union, but is the biblical word used to cover all sexual immorality including affairs of Breaking Wedlock, Miscegenation, Incest, Bestiality, and Homosex.

Hebrews 13:4

Marriage is Honourable in All,

and

The Bed Undefiled:

but

Whoremongers and Adulterers
God Will Judge.

Now that Adultery has been defined from the language and the context of scripture let us ask both Nature and Natures God for the Laws which forbids and dictate the committing and abhorrence of the practice and it’s effect on the common wealth.

As the focus of the Common Law of God regarding every commandment in the 10 is imperative on society, and at the introduction prior we have seen how the commandments hinge and rest at diverse and synonymous times one upon each other, with the Command against Adultery this is easily seen, even more so in reflection upon the prior discussion on the Common Law and their impacts in violation and adherence upon the Common-Wealth of Israel particularly when considering the first 5 commandments of God, especially the 5th, in honoring or valuing ones parents and thus parentage, the scope of Adultery as adulteration becomes all the more clear.

Call to mind the statement made in the compilation on the 5th Commandment of Honor thy Parents: “Adultery, fornication, and whoredom are ultimate devaluations or dishonor to ones parents and parentage, by allowance of an illegitimate offspring to grow in violation of the Law of God will destroy the Covenant upon which the Law is founded thereby dissolving the bond of all. “

Lev_20:21-22 says, Ye shall therefore keep all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: that the land, whither I bring you to dwell therein, spue you not out.

All forms of adulteration are literally a curse and a strike against ones parentage, a dishonor that will cause the Land to spew us out as opposed to prolong our days. Thus in it’s entirety the adulteration of race, nation, tribe and family genealogy and by thus inheritance is in focus, notwithstanding that those natural adulteration which could never produce offspring are as well condemned due to it’s adulteration of natural affection.

Unlike the command on killing, there is no exception is given in the Scriptures for the Governing Authorities or any citizen to engage in Adultery; rather we find fornication and com Adultery which bring forth adulterated children being condemned in the lives of Kings and Priests (Ezra and Nehemiah).

Adultery is perhaps more murderous to a legitimate society that murder it self, as in the case of Adultery when committed and unpunished, when it is acknowledged by it’s spawn it offers a seed bed for the germination of bastard and fruitless affections towards YHWH God and HIS Law, in as much as the spawn of such a union will acknowledge that it’s life was never to be.

The Organic Laws

of

Creation will guide this study

of the

Common-Wealth’s Common Law On Adultery

In order to discuss this subject of Adultery 5 categories have been enumerated to isolate the content for discussion:

Miscegenation, Bestiality, Homosex, Incest, Breaking of Wedlock;

The Organic laws of Creation will guide this study as the bedrock of the Common-Wealth’s Common Law:

The Adultery of Miscegenation is first brought in to scope, that is the Adulteration of Genetic Purity, this is not only in the Adulteration of ADaM, but as well in the Adulteration of all kinds.

In the very beginning of creation as the Scripture relays it we find a simple statement, easy for the farmer, the husbandman, and the ethnologist to understand “After his kind or “After their kind”

Gen 1:24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.

Gen 1:25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good. The Hebrew word MYN-Eh is see in both creation and replenishment after the flood in: Gen_1:11; Gen_1:12; Gen_1:21; Gen_1:24; Gen_1:25; Gen_6:20; Gen_7:14; Gen_8:19.

For our sakes, no doubt, this is written…

In the case of all creation their is an order after kind, and this is so with the living souls as well. As the wise and accepted apostle Paul dictates concerning the laws which pertain to beasts (1Co_9:9-10) “…Doth God take care for oxen? Or saith he it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written…” so the Law build upon this organic order of kind may be plainly known:

Lev_19:19 Ye shall keep my statutes. Thou shalt not let thy cattle gender with a diverse kind: thou shalt not sow thy field with mingled seed: neither shall a garment mingled of linen and woollen come upon thee. ( LXX-Gender-κατο-χευσεις / Kata xeusis, Kata: down, beside, against, and the same ending in the Greek word for Adultery moi-Xeusis / chaos)

Deu_22:9 Thou shalt not sow thy vineyard with divers seeds: lest the fruit of thy seed which thou hast sown, and the fruit of thy vineyard, be defiled.

Deu 22:10 Thou shalt not plow with an ox and an ass together.

Deu 22:11 Thou shalt not wear a garment of divers sorts, as of woollen and linen together.

The law is direct and simple the mixing of kinds is not pleasing to GOD Almighty, from ADaM to beast, from beast to plant life YHWH God is desirous of HIS Creation to stay in order, an order which modern man is ever tampering with, from ADaM to bacteria.

As in the case of the prior laws the logic of God is clear on the reason why such is forbidden : “lest the fruit of thy seed which thou hast sown, and the fruit of thy vineyard, be defiled.”

ADaM

In Genesis 1:26 directly following the account of the people of ADaM are made according to their kind

“And God said, Let us make ADaM in our image, after our likeness…”, in this case we have both a physical and a Spiritual being being created after God’s kind, that is His image and likeness.

…”and let them have dominion”…ADaM was an ordained creation, made for Governance of the earth.

In the detailed account of Genesis 2, we are given a contextual understanding to found our Common Law there after, an Organic construct which shows the normality of ADaM’s Society:

Gen_2:18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

Gen 2:19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.

Gen 2:20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.

Bestiality

Here plainly the simplicity of bestiality being abhorrent to the Creator is shown. That is that all formed life, and every living creature, formed also of the ground is not the same as the ADaM Kind and is not fit for him to take as a help mate (meet).

To this act of Adulteration the Law of God says:

Exo 22:19 Whosoever lieth with a beast shall surely be put to death.

Lev 18:23 Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion.

Lev 20:15 And if a man lie with a beast, he shall surely be put to death: and ye shall slay the beast.

Lev 20:16 And if a woman approach unto any beast, and lie down thereto, thou shalt kill the woman, and the beast: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

Homosexuality among ADaM

Gen_1:27 So God created ADaM in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

Gen 2:21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;

Gen 2:22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

Gen 2:23 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.

Gen 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it…

This blessed mandate is the very command of male and female made in the likeness and image of God, are to be being fruitful and multiply according to their ADaM Kind, Male and female creating living souls like them selves, the natural procreation process was instituted from the time of Creation, and is in no way as some suppose a product of the fall, or of a curse, as only the multiplication of pain in Childbirth is listed among the curses NOT childbirth it self.

When the Hebrew term for male and female is examined the intrinsic nature of conjugation is evident, male (ZKR/ mark makers) and female (NQuBH, marked, or punctured) created he them.

The Common Law founded upon Normalcy was instituted thus:

Lev_18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

Lev 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

Incest

By this same set of scriptures from Gen 1 and 2 the ordained marriage of unfamilial persons.

Incest is opposed in the nature of creation, as ADaM’s help meet was not his mother, sister or child in any form of natural generation, but was a special creation of Adam’s genetic flesh and bone but not related in the familial way. As Adam was created of the dust of the earth along with all other living creatures or souls, they are not permitted to be mates one to the other, nor indeed can they be in fact yet they are all of the family of dust but were created distinct, so Incest between mother, sister, and daughter is forbidden by the Law of God as a form of Adultery as well, supported in the construct of ADaM’s recieving of his mate by special generation created by the hand of Almighty God.

Lev 18:6 None of you shall approach to any that is near of kin to him, to uncover their nakedness: I am the LORD.

Though out Lev_18:1-30 and Lev_20:8-23 the likeness of YHWH God is seen on the matter, in the prohibiting of marriage to mother and father, sister or brother, son or daughter, aunt or uncle as well as other adulterous forms of engenderance. It is thus, by a study of the Hebrew ad Greek scriptures one may safley understand that ADaM was not an individual creation as one man but as a race or kind.

Thus all sexual immorality classified as adultery is able to be defended in the organic nature of creation both the pro and the con, that is the thou shalt and the thou shalt not in conjunction with those natural principals which govern generation.

Back to the Norm

Deu 23:17

There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel,

nor a whoremonger of the sons of Israel.

Gen 2:23 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.

The marital construct is imbued with this organic maxim of wedlock, that men of ADaM are to have wives taken from their own people, that is of their own bone and flesh, a command which follows threw out the Scriptural testament, offering the Christian the certainty of this Common Law forbidding Adultery and Adulteration of ones created kind.

Thus in the case of ADaM upon whom the focus of Scripture is upon, his creation mandate for blessing was contained in the command: “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion… (Gen_1:28, Gen_9:7)

It is in application of the simplicity of the knowledge found in the fruitfulness becoming defiled by Adulteration with other kinds the subject of what is call miscegenation is easily had in YHWH God’s creation of male and female of this particular kind of living creature or living soul called ADaM. The Hebrew word ADaM is a physiognomy term, that is it is descriptive of the visage of the kind called ADaM which as can we easily seen through out the Hebrew and English Scriptures has the meaning of a Ruddy or Blushing countenance, as any amateur bible student may see the meaning of Adam as meaning such in a concordance, or by looking up the word Hebrew word ‘ruddy’ in a KJV, one simple example of the use of the word ADaM is: Son_5:10 My beloved is white and ruddy, the chiefest among ten thousand. ( צחH6703 white ואדוםH122 and ruddy)

Looking at the Proper Wedlock

Gen_2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

Gen 2:25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

As God says it is not good for the ADaM to be alone, and has made a way for ADaM to have an help mate. Gen_2:18 This prize and blessing of Wedlock to affect dominion should be Coveted and protected by the families involved in marriage making.

In the very idea of cleaving to ones wife, particularly as the Hebrew word for cleave is DBaQH1692 which is the word used to describe a literal over taking in pursuit (Gen_31:23), particularly inheritance land seen Num_36:7 in the idea of keeping ones own inheritance, the end goal of wedlock. Through out the scriptures DBaQ references the keeping, taking, pursuing of a thing thus in the Genesis of this mater the cleaving of a man to his wife of his own flesh and bone is the keeping of wedlock is a thing to be perused, protected and defended by this final conclusion. In the start of this pursuit it is attainable to see.

Beware of all whoredom… chiefly…

Cosider the book of Tobit as found in the Apocrypha

Tobit_4:12-13 Beware of all whoredom, my son, and chiefly take a wife of the seed of thy fathers, and take not a strange woman to wife, which is not of thy father’s tribe: for we are the children of the prophets, Noe, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob: remember, my son, that our fathers from the beginning, even that they all married wives of their own kindred, and were blessed in their children, and their seed shall inherit the land. 13 Now therefore, my son, love thy brethren, and despise not in thy heart thy brethren, the sons and daughters of thy people, in not taking a wife of them

The Father YHWH is the headship holder and he is intimately engaged in helping his progeny find a help mate, this showing one of the ultimate safe guards against a poor marriage, an adulterous marriage , that parents are to be involved in the finding of spouses for their children.

Consider the lives of the patriarchs of our linage, consider Abraham heir of the dominion blessing as an inheritance:

Gen 24:2 And Abraham said unto his eldest servant of his house, that ruled over all that he had, Put, I pray thee, thy hand under my thigh:

Gen 24:3 And I will make thee swear by the LORD, the God of heaven, and the God of the earth, that thou shalt not take a wife unto my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I dwell:

Gen 24:4 But thou shalt go unto my country, and to my kindred, and take a wife unto my son Isaac.

We see as well our patriarchs actively looking with his headships guidance in finding an help meet (for all purposes) particularly in the act of reproduction or multiplying, as can be seen as well in Gen_1:27, Gen_2:20-21

Gen_27:46, Gen_28:1-2 …if Jacob take a wife of the daughters of Heth, such as these which are of the daughters of the land, what good shall my life do me? And Isaac called Jacob, and blessed him, and charged him, and said unto him, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan.

Gen 28:2 Arise, go to Padanaram, to the house of Bethuel thy mother’s father; and take thee a wife from thence of the daughters of Laban thy mother’s brother.

Isaac and Rebecah see the miscegenation which has caused Esau’s fornication and he is active in the marital process of Jacob making the right choice.

Ample scripture shows that the forbidden lineages of peoples who had fallen from grace, that is that they had fallen from heirship of the covenant passed on from Adam to the Gentiles of the 12 tribes of Israel.

In the conquest of the Land this Statute exclaimed again:

In the books of the Law it reads:

Exo 34:15 Lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and they go a whoring after their gods, and do sacrifice unto their gods, and one call thee, and thou eat of his sacrifice;

Exo 34:16 And (if) thou take of their daughters unto thy sons, and their daughters go a whoring after their gods, and make thy sons go a whoring after their gods.

Deu 7:3 Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son.

Deu 7:4 For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the LORD be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly.

Mamzer?

The very act of Israel adulterating with other Kinds and forbidden lineages of people who had prior adulterated them selves created an illegitimate offspring YHWH God calls a MeMuRZ:

Deu 23:1 He that is wounded in the stones, or hath his privy member cut off, shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD. ( A man who has removed his ability ro be fruitful and multiply)

Deu 23:2 A bastard (Mamzer) shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the LORD.

Deu 23:3 An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to their tenth generation shall they not enter into the congregation of the LORD for ever:

Deu 23:4 Because they met you not with bread and with water in the way, when ye came forth out of Egypt; and because they hired against thee Balaam the son of Beor of Pethor of Mesopotamia, to curse thee…Thou shalt not seek their peace nor their prosperity all thy days for ever.

Deu 23:7 Thou shalt not abhor an Edomite; for he is thy brother: thou shalt not abhor an Egyptian; because thou wast a stranger in his land.

Deu 23:8 The children that are begotten of them shall enter into the congregation of the LORD in their third generation.

The list above is specific as to ban citizenship in the Common-Wealth to those who have damaged there ability to create heirs of the Ecclesia or church, that is the body of the common-wealth of Israel contained in it’s ethnic people. Second in the list, directly behind he who can have no offspring of those who may not hold citizenship in the Ecclasia or church is the Bastard or Mamzer. In Germanic toughed the word bastard holds the same meaning as mamzer, that is to bastardize or adulter. In the Hebrew the word MaMZuR is a word which literally speaks of one who is ‘ MeM / spotted + ZuR/ strange’ or ‘stranger marred’, which is a reference to the physiognomy, in other words ‘they don’t look right’, seen literally in some translations such as the Jerusalem Bible simply say “race mixed”.

As a compound word of MeM + ZuR = MMZR the below is explained:

H3971 מוּם מאוּם m’ûm mûmAs if passive participle from an unused root probably meaning to stain; a blemish (physical or moral): – blemish, blot, spot.

H2114 זוּר zûr A primitive root; to turn aside (especially for lodging); hence to be a foreigner, strange, profane; specifically (active participle) to commit adultery: – (come from) another (man, place), fanner, go away, (e-) strange (-r, thing, woman).

To be a mamzer is simply to be a blemished / spotter or stained stranger and is the Hebrew used for a mongrel, while the word Mamzer may still be found in some dictionaries of the English language giving this very meaning.

H4464- ממזר / MMZR / MeMZuR From an unused root . to alienate; a mongrel, that is, born of a Jewish father and a heathen mother: – bastard.

The word Mamzer is still able to be found in dictionaries of the English language, as the word was once used by those who knew it’s meaning. As well the Ammonite and the Moabite are forever forbidden from entrance in to the Church of GOD, and the Edomite and Egyptian had full status as citizens after three generations. All of these in the list specifically reference female in marriage, this is known because of the strictness of Israelite inheritance laws, as all land ownership was solely held by literal children of Jacob, that is a member of one of the Tribes of Israel; as discussed in the 5th Commandment of the Common-Law, and this land could never be sold or lost by it’s original owners family Lev_25:1-55, thus this set of laws must define the offspring of a woman from a pure Israelite man.

Protective Measures

a

Blue print for Wedlock

The final provision in the Common Law for the Common-Wealth of Israel in the cleaving of men to their God-given wives, may be chiefly seen in the ultimate protection of Wedlock prior to and once had in marriage.

This is the Custom’s European Society hold and have that only in our more recent age has been striped away, statutes which aim at the preservation of genuine generations, according to Kind and Nation as well as Tribe and family. Briefly consider some of these protective measures:

Biblical wedlock or marriage is comprised of 3 facts between a male and a female which are all seated upon the prior organic and lawful foundation :

1st Permission of Headship, 2nd Dowry, 3rd Conjugal Consummation:

Biblically it may come as a shock to some, there is no priest, no preacher, no church, no temple required

Wedlock in a Biblical society is in the realm of civil law, while in a secular society it is considered ecclesiastical law; marriage is simply an exchange between families to affect the dominion mandate. Out side of wedlock no marriage may exist, once any of the elements enumerated are engaged in wedlock has initiated and the breaking thereof gains possibility as sin and or adultery.

For instance once betrothal, that is a promise of marriage in the future (we may call this engagement today) is given the same relative connection with any other than that person of promise is Adultery, it is Adultery in the same sense as we commonly understand it after a woman is fully married to a husband:

Deu_22:13 If any man take a wife, and go in unto her, and hate her,

Deu 22:14 And give occasions of speech against her, and bring up an evil name upon her, and say, I took this woman, and when I came to her, I found her not a maid:

Deu 22:15 Then shall the father of the damsel, and her mother, take and bring forth the tokens of the damsel’s virginity unto the elders of the city in the gate:

Deu 22:16 And the damsel’s father shall say unto the elders, I gave my daughter unto this man to wife, and he hateth her;

Deu 22:17 And, lo, he hath given occasions of speech against her, saying, I found not thy daughter a maid; and yet these are the tokens of my daughter’s virginity. And they shall spread the cloth before the elders of the city.

Deu 22:18 And the elders of that city shall take that man and chastise him;

Deu 22:19 And they shall amerce him in an hundred shekels of silver, and give them unto the father of the damsel, because he hath brought up an evil name upon a virgin of Israel: and she shall be his wife; he may not put her away all his days.

Deu 22:20 But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel:

Deu_22:21 Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father’s house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die: because she hath wrought folly in Israel, to play the whore in her father’s house: so shalt thou put evil away from among you.

(see next aspect for 22)

Deu 22:23 If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto an husband, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her;

Deu 22:24 Then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones that they die; the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city; and the man, because he hath humbled his neighbour’s wife: so thou shalt put away evil from among you.

Yet in the event conjugation is enacted with out Parental consent or Dowry to establish the witness of betrothal:

Deu_22:28 If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found;

Deu 22:29 Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel’s father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he hath humbled her, he may not put her away all his days.

Exo_22:16 And if a man entice a maid that is not betrothed, and lie with her, he shall surely endow her to be his wife.

Exo_22:17 If her father utterly refuse to give her unto him, he shall pay money according to the dowry of virgins.

Dowry in this sense is both the price of the bride as well as the punishment upon the father for having a loose daughter, punishment I say because no limit is placed upon a virtuous woman, her price is far above rubies. (Proverbs 31)

The fully and yet understood portion of Adultery that most, for now, in European Society still understand while little even among so called Christians practice is that of which is spoken of in the reserved verse of Deuternomy 22:22

Deu_22:22 If a man be found lying with a woman married to an husband, then they shall both of them die, both the man that lay with the woman, and the woman: so shalt thou put away evil from Israel.

As well we have the hard to swallow but biblicaly accurate list of scriptures which speak to the same sentament is the Common-Wealth of Israel:

Lev_20:10 And the man that committeth adultery with another man’s wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.

Christ’s reformation of Adultery?

For those who would oppose this righteous judgment of God, by imposing upon the Son of YHWH God Jesus Christ his opposition to this Judgment of the 7th Commandment in Joh_8:4-5,

Joh 8:3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,

Joh 8:4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.

Joh 8:5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?

Joh 8:6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.

Joh 8:7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

Joh 8:8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

Joh 8:9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

Consider the wording of the Law, as in John 8 simply, only a supposed woman caught in the act of adultery was presented for judgment while the adulterer, was not present, a requirement for the Capitol punishment by Israel’s Government to have before judgment as seen plainly in the texts above. Thus, even in the event of the woman of John chapter 8 having truly committed adultery, the judgment was constrained until the requirements were satisfied, and only then may judgment with justice proceed, or else all those who punished the woman condemned them selves as violators of the 6th Commandment as unauthorized and or unexcepted killers. And this of course would be no different today as it would have been in the days of Moses.

A

Glorious Church

not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing

but

that it should be holy and without blemish

Members of his Body, of his Flesh, and of his Bones

In the final consideration on this compilation primary focus in the Organic principle of

Gen_2:24-25 …a man… shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh….naked…and not ashamed.

To this cleaving, unification and shameless principle the Christian marriage is weighed and judged. It is the male as Head of his God given family to protect his special marriage union at all costs, even as the apostle tells us:

Eph_5:22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.

Eph 5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the savior of the body.

Eph 5:24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

Eph 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

Eph 5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,

Eph 5:27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

Eph 5:28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.

Eph 5:29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:

Eph 5:30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

Eph 5:31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.

Eph 5:32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.

Eph 5:33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.

Thou shalt Not Kill

Exodus 20:13 / Deuteronomy 5:17

Among the simplest laws seemingly to understand is this 6th Commandment of the Common Law of God and of the most essential tenants of the Common-Wealth of Israel, is the simplicity of “Thou shalt Not Kill”.

Translations from the LXX Septuagint have it written “You shall not murder.”

The Idea of Killing an innocent person either of ones own nation or of another nation or people during a time of peace is among the most primary laws which govern society, yet it as all other Commandments ordained by Almighty God is integral in the fabric of the table of the whole of the 10 commandments. It is by this law all capitol offenses are weighed, those offenses towards God and neighbor which demand the blood of the offender is the highest price a sinner may pay in society, thus it is the chief, head or Capitol of the punishments of He That Is God: YHWH. It is by this Exception to this law had in Judgment against sin, that all rights become forfeited to one’s life as to allow the ordained Government to enact what is called the capitol punishment, and this when willful disregard summarized as wickedness is committed in place of the prior 5 commandments, this very 6th Commandment as well as those to be discussed hereafter this compilation.

The scripture below is here inserted into this compilation, at the forefront, as it is an adjoinment of this 6th Commandment to be discussed of prohibition of the taking of Innocent Life with the prior compilation on the 5th Commandment of the Common Law of God of Honoring thy Father and thy Mother , that thy days may be prolonged in the Land YHWH has given thee , showing the positive creative power to be exerted in the Common-Wealth of Israel to protect the Land of the children of thy people (Thy Brother) from the guilt of innocent blood :

Deu_19:1 When the LORD thy God hath cut off the nations, whose land the LORD thy God giveth thee, and thou succeedest them, and dwellest in their cities, and in their houses;

Deu 19:2 Thou shalt separate three cities for thee in the midst of thy land, which the LORD thy God giveth thee to possess it.

Deu 19:3 Thou shalt prepare thee a way, and divide the coasts of thy land, which the LORD thy God giveth thee to inherit, into three parts, that every slayer may flee thither.

Deu 19:4 And this is the case of the slayer, which shall flee thither, that he may live: Whoso killeth his neighbour ignorantly, whom he hated not in time past;

Deu 19:5 As when a man goeth into the wood with his neighbour to hew wood, and his hand fetcheth a stroke with the axe to cut down the tree, and the head slippeth from the helve, and lighteth upon his neighbour, that he die; he shall flee unto one of those cities, and live:

Deu 19:6 Lest the avenger of the blood pursue the slayer, while his heart is hot, and overtake him, because the way is long, and slay him; whereas he was not worthy of death, inasmuch as he hated him not in time past.

Deu 19:7 Wherefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt separate three cities for thee.

Deu 19:8 And if the LORD thy God enlarge thy coast, as he hath sworn unto thy fathers, and give thee all the land which he promised to give unto thy fathers;

Deu 19:9 If thou shalt keep all these commandments to do them, which I command thee this day, to love the LORD thy God, and to walk ever in his ways; then shalt thou add three cities more for thee, beside these three:

Deu 19:10 That innocent blood be not shed in thy land, which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance, and so blood be upon thee.

Deu 19:11 But if any man hate his neighbour, and lie in wait for him, and rise up against him, and smite him mortally that he die, and fleeth into one of these cities:

Deu 19:12 Then the elders of his city shall send and fetch him thence, and deliver him into the hand of the avenger of blood, that he may die.

Deu 19:13 Thine eye shall not pity him, but thou shalt put away the guilt of innocent blood from Israel, that it may go well with thee.

Deu 19:14 Thou shalt not remove thy neighbour’s landmark, which they of old time have set in thine inheritance, which thou shalt inherit in the land that the LORD thy God giveth thee to possess it.

A struggle between

the Flesh and the Spirit

Before venturing into this compilation notice the power of creation and judgment which is to be exerted into a Biblically Realistic society of Theonomic exactness. With in this statute to be executed, at it’s very heart of the creation and maintenance is the Land’s Road-Way system, that is the lands very rights of way; as we may understand it today’s terms: Some of our State highways, County and Township roads as well as City streets are implace due to the principles of the 6th Commandment as it’s Organic foundation, this is why this section of Deuteronomy 19:14 as well forbids the removal of ancient landmark, as the road way will, as it is today flow naturally between the boarders of family owned property. This is civilization as YHWH God dictated it, an exercise of the Spiritual Image and likeness by those who have his law upon their heart by natural progeniture

Facts of

Observable Nature

Yet in the case of observable Nature the living creatures seemingly need no permission or license beyond it’s own Hunger, Territory and sometimes Entertainment to kill and take life; thus by Nature we see that life operates with out law to govern the taking thereof in a selfish state according to it’s flesh, the creature prefers it’s own wants and needs before the basic breath of it’s victim, yet even this is made by the Creators design as the self evident facts bear witness; by nature the sons of Adam would in fact govern no differently with out the Law of God as the scripture relays in:

Gen_6:3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with ADaM, for that he also is flesh.

And in Gen_6:11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.

The

Christian Perspective

of the

Apostle Paul

The struggle between flesh and Spirit is here made evident to the war with in the living souls of ADaM: on the one hand we are spiritual, our inward man is capable of resembling the image and likeness of the Father YHWH God it’s Creator’s righteousness, and on the other hand ADaM is bound in flesh like all other living creatures and has the same selfish motivations to satiate his wands and needs; yet the reconciliation able to be harmonized in the creation of ADaM even in his fallen state is that it is this unique ability of having the duel nature of God flesh and Spirit that allows for Dominion or Governance, yet Governance with Righteousness is only achievable when the works and fruits of the flesh are crucified and redemption of the flesh body is the judicious goal of Adam’s children in the active fight against the fruits of the flesh: Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like…which I tell you …they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. (Gal_5:19-21)

In this make up designed by YHWH Creator of the souls of ADaM Spiritual Judgment is capable of coming to Fruit in our flesh: Gal_5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

(See Romans 6,7,8)

It is by this Spirit, the image and likeness of God which ADaM is reflective of, that allows him to create and Govern according to justice and and Judgment of God for his people and to aid as a light to the world in his resurrected state after the image of the Son of God, that is a a Christian. All forms of creative power given to ADaM in the making of society, be it building structures for protection, worship, help, aid education all are manifestations of the Governance ability of the spirit, a Spirit mixed with it’s fleshly desire to satiate it’s wants and needs, may in this resurrected state after the inward man focus this desire upon the things of God, the fruits of the Spirit, in other words ADaM is called to prefer the wants and needs of God the Father before his own and every one else, as the living creature of flesh is desirous and in preferance to it’s own wants and needs in preference to the life of it’s victim, so is the Spirit in preference to the wants and needs of the Spirit over the life and breath of the works and workers of the flesh:

Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. Rom_1:29-32 – The Christian perspective of the Apostle Paul

It is by this standard the Organic nature of both murder and capitol punishment is divided according to nature and nature’s God.

Consider the primary example found in the first event of killing between the sons of Adam, Cain and Able found in Gen 4:8 And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.(Gen_4:1-16)

Here accourding to both the context of the account and of Heb_11:4, 1Jo_3:12-15 righteous Able’s blood is shed and his life taken by the wrath of his wicked angry brother, the first imparitive strike against the 2nd Proto Commandment discussed in the introduction of this compilation, which in fact strikes against the first protos commandment as well

Mar_12:30 love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength

Mar_12:31 And the second is like this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

 

In this first case of murder, we have as well an absolute stike against the blessed mandate of dominion found in Gen_1:26-28 and discussed in the prior commandment as the act of killing ones brother undermines every tenant of that mandate and validates the curse of death pronounced upon ADaM as people, that is when murder is commited by one brother upon another of the same linage it:

1st devalues the parents of the linage, thus it is a strike against the prior 5th Commandment

2nd as devaluation of the parents of the linage it is, particularly in the case of ADaM a devalueation of God the Father who made ADaM in his likeness and image .

3rd eliminates a representative of God the Father’s dominion/governance is stalled, precisely in the case of the murder of the righteous.

4th finally as a truism, reverses the fruitfulness and multiplicity of Adamic Life in the act of murder.

As it should be understood from this organic contradiction, due to the nature of ADaM’s creation in the likeness and image of YHWH God the Father, ADaM’s intended purpose was to be in righteousness, as we find in this elementary account of Cain’s murder of Righteous Abel.

While some of the stated contradictions of the Blessed mandate in the points above could be said to be the same by taking the life of the murderer as well, the element of righteousness which lacks from the life of a murderer nullifies the same standard being held in the case of a murderer, rather the opposite becomes the observable, that by allowing the wicked to live unpunished will only further spawn the curse, and rather than affect the Earth with the Righteous Image and likeness of God the Father intended to govern by blessing, the willful dominion of the curse will govern in it’s own selfish likeness thereby multipling and fruiting the Earth with death according to the flesh rather than righteousness according to the Spirit as found in:

Gen_6:5 And YHWH saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

Gen 6:6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

Gen 6:7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth…

And thus to maintain the balance of righteousness, the Judgment upon murder was firmly enacted to the sons of Adam by the repeating of the blessed mandate after the destruction of the earth and the transgression against it righteousness by murder:

Gen_9:1 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth…

Gen 9:5 And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of an ADaM; at the hand of every man’s brother will I require the life of an ADaM.

Gen 9:6 Whoso sheddeth an ADaM’s blood, by ADaM shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made He you the ADaM.

Gen 9:7 And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.

Gen 9:8 And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying,

Gen 9:9 And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you..

And thus we have the bedrock foundation of the organic law which prohibits murder by nothing short of the exact idea’s delivered and codified my Moses in the 5th Commandment Thou Shalt Not Kill.

Capitol Punishment in society is always divine

When killing is considered from a Governmental perspective in any society, the Creative Force, that is the Divine which are attributed to giving life is called immediately into focus. Plainly the philosophic type question begs the answer to “Who gives the right to any one to take another’s life?”. For with out the absolute protection of innocent life from anger and wrath as well as the needs and wants of others, a protection which comes from Divine Law as an exception to the law of the flesh with allows for our Blood at the will of the stronger; as well it is Divine Law which offers exception to Righteous Government to put away evil that the wicked begat no more wickedness. No other legitimate answer maybe given to the question is begged.

With out the license granted by the Creator of life to put away some life from living by killing that life, it may be presumed that no life may be taken. Indeed, the enactment of the death penalty is indeed a permission of licensure given to those who wields the right to avenge blood, yea it is a waiver of this 6th Commandment’s protection.

Justice and Righteousness

of

YHWH GOD’s LAW

It is then by this law of the 6th Commandment both prince and stranger answer for the shedding of innocent blood and other sin crimes which demand blood as it’s payment to put evil away from the nation, for when a ruler takes the blood of His innocent subjects as punishment or in abuse he is as liable as the roving foreigner who would take the life of one of the citizens of the nation he dwells among. Thus, we not only have with in this 6th Commandment the prohibition for murder among brothers and neighbors and strangers, but we also have the prohibition of Judges putting innocent men to death with out inquisition, search, asking diligently; truth, and certainty, that such abomination is wrought… Deu_13:14

As well:

Deu_17:4 And it be told thee, and thou hast heard of it, and enquired diligently, and, behold, it be true, and the thing certain, that such abomination is wrought in Israel:

Deu 17:5 Then shalt thou bring forth that man or that woman, which have committed that wicked thing, unto thy gates, even that man or that woman, and shalt stone them with stones, till they die.

 

As the further substantiation of the positive aspect of this governing precept of this operating judgment:

Deu_17:6 At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he that is worthy of death be put to death; but at the mouth of one witness he shall not be put to death.

Deu_19:15 One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established.

And further built upon this precept of Thorough investigation and evidence establishing facts, the falsification of witness is as well punishable, in this case of murder, the one falsifying a witness as well forfeits his own life…

Deu_ 19:16 If a false witness rise up against any man to testify against him that which is wrong;

Deu 19:17 Then both the men, between whom the controversy is, shall stand before the LORD, before the priests and the judges, which shall be in those days;

Deu 19:18 And the judges shall make diligent inquisition: and, behold, if the witness be a false witness, and hath testified falsely against his brother;

Deu 19:19 Then shall ye do unto him, as he had thought to have done unto his brother: so shalt thou put the evil away from among you.

Deu 19:20 And those which remain shall hear, and fear, and shall henceforth commit no more any such evil among you.

Deu 19:21 And thine eye shall not pity; but life shall go for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.

The Law of the flesh is sin and death,

The Law of God forbids killing:

God Grants Righteous Government Licensure to kill Sin and Death

It is an important at this juncture in thought to reaffirm and consider:

That the 6th Commandment prohibits Killing, thus it is so that with out the precepts which grant exception to the God Ordained Government instituting His righteous Judgments upon evil, no provision to kill is granted. It is only according to the strict format imbued into the exception of taking away wicked and evil life from the Land by condemning the workers of the fruits of the flesh, and this for the sole purpose of maintaining the fruits of the Spirit in all goodness and righteousness and truth Eph_5:9, with in the Christian Common-Wealth of Israel.

By such a righteous standard all the People may truly say

Cursed be he that taketh reward to slay an innocent person. And of the people shall say Amen. Deu_27:25

And with the people let all the Judges and Rulers know: Keep thee far from a false matter; and the innocent and righteous slay thou not: for I will not justify the wicked. Exo_23:7

For The God of Israel, the Rock of Israel speaks to every Judge and ruler as he charged David saying,

He that ruleth over men must be just, ruling in the fear of God. (2Sa_23:3)

Those who execute such capitol punishments for the maintenance of the Common-Wealth must be such men who are above reproach, Judges and Officers of the Church Israel (Congregation of YHWH / Church of God) comprised of literal Elders or Old men of literal Families as shown in Exo_18:25-26, Deu_1:9-18, Num_1:1-54, Num_11:14-25, as now stated many times heretofore, that the perfect Law of God with it’s punishments be not blasphemed. As we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully;

1Ti_1:9 Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,

1Ti 1:10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;

1Ti 1:11 According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God…

The Law is part and parcel to the Gospel which our Apostle Paul teaches to Timothy and the Christian’s of that day.

Thus from King to Peasant Thou Shalt Not Kill reigns as an essential element of the balance found in the Christian Common-Wealth, God reigns supreme and the only Sovereign LORD by and through the Word of His Law.
