The Power of Providence is the unstoppable force of God’s spirit that determines the fate of man. It is the manifest destiny of America to continue advancing those divine principles that establish justice and mercy. Article VIII Union of Holy Assemblies is as certain as the power of Providence.
I Peter 2.9 “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood…” The royal priesthood of Jesus Christ are those who have the right to royal authority (public authority) such as the executive branch from the police officer to the Chief Magistrate, to the legislature as congressmen and Senators, as in judicial as in judges. It is the work of Article VIII to restore Christians in leadership who only have the right to of access to public authority which is divine authority delegated.
American Revolutionary War Motto: “No King but King Jesus!
The US Constitution subscription clause reads “…done in Convention by the Unanimous Consent of the States present the Seventeenth Day of September in the Year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and Eighty seven and of the Independance of the United States of America the Twelfth.” James Madison says that that no phrase of the Constitution ought to be a dead letter but must harmonize with every other phrase. The US Constitution declares that Jesus is “our Lord” and harmonizing this with other phrases makes Jesus Lord over the legislature, executive and judicial branch of the federal government. The very word of Jesus is incorporated into the Constitution by the word Lord. Additionally, the US Constitution subscriptions clause reads “independence … the Twelfh,” and this ties the US Constitution to the Declaration of Independence which declares that all men are created (not evolved), and that we receive inalienable rights from a Creator, and that our moral rectitude is defined by the Supreme Judge; in summery, the laws of God given to Moses are incorporated into American law. Constitutionally, public officials in order to uphold the ‘oath or affirmation’ must declare Jesus as “our Lord’ by obeying Jesus’s words, pray only to Jesus as their Lord and honor and appeal to rectitude of the God of Israel as the signers of the Declaration of 1776 did.
Jesus “Most certainly I tell you, unless one is born of water and spirit, he can’t enter into God’s Kingdom. That which is born of the flesh is flesh. That which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” Jn.3:5-6
John of Salisbury on Joshua, son of Nun, who replaced Moses writes that the governance of the people is handed over to him whom God has elected, namely, such a man who has in him the Spirit of God and to whose sight are the commandments of God, one who is well know to and familiar with Moses, that is, in whom there is the distinction and knowledge of the law. 70
The US Constitution recognizes only one religion, only one God, and only Jesus in the Constitution’s subscription clause that reads “in the Year of our LORD one thousand seven hundred and Eighty seven and of the Independence…the Twelfth.” James Madison wrote that every phrase of the Constitution must work with every other phrase. In this context, Jesus as “our Lord” is Lord of the Legislative, Judicial and Executive branches of the federal government. Only Jesus we can pray to. Only Jesus defines our religion. Additionally, the US Constitution makes a direct tie to the Declaration of 1776 with the words “Indepedence…the Twelfth.” The Declaration of 1776 is connected and part of the US Constitution which declares that God is the Creator of our inalienable rights and the Supreme Judge of our national rectitude. God of the Bible is written in America’s constitutional fabric. Samuel Adams when signing the Declaration of Independence when he said “We have this day restored the Sovereign to Whom all men ought to be obedient. He reigns in heaven and from the rising to the setting of the sun, let His kingdom come.” Samuel Adams was called the last of the Puritans, his God was the God of the Bible. But this does not end the case. Those who oppose or seek to undermine the very words of the US Constitution are an insurrection and enemy of the American people.
1.You Write “You’re misinformed. The Founding Fathers were not
blindly religious men, and they fought hard to erect, in Thomas
Jefferson’s words, “..a wall of separation between church and
Response: Jefferson’s statement“a wall of separation
between church and state” is taken from his letter to the Danbury
Baptist. Jefferson as President of the United States at the time concludes the letter “I reciprocate your kind prayers for the protection & blessing of the common father and creator of man….” Jefferson was
giving support to the First Amendment, not the twisted interpretation
of the Supreme Court, but the original intent and that the Federal
government via Congress would not create a national church that would compete and challenge the State and their State Church. The
States had the right and First the Amendment had protected the right for State’s to have state churches.
2. You write “John Adams opined that if they were not restrained
by legal measures, Puritans (the Christian fundamentalists of their
day) would “whip and crop, and pillory and roast.” The
historical epoch had afforded these men ample opportunity to observe
the corruption to which established priesthoods were liable, and as
Jefferson wrote ” ..the impious presumption of legislators and
rulers, civil as well as ecclesiastical, who, being themselves but
fallible and uninspired men, have assumed dominion over the faith of
others, setting up their own opinions and modes of thinking as the
only true and infallible, and as such endeavoring to impose them on
others, hath established and maintained false religions over the
greatest part of the world and through all time.”
Response: The Founding Fathers learned the lesson of tolerance and the proper use that is civil government. Civil government should not be used to legislate the interpretation of Scripture, which is the province of liberty of conscience, versus the legislating of the law of God, which is the jurisdiction of civil government. The reason courtrooms have/had the Ten Commandments display was to remind the judge, jury, and the litigants of the standard of right and wrong and good and evil. God’s law lays the foundation of criminal justice by defining good and evil and right and wrong.
3. Your Write “In addition the Treaty of Tripoly was submitted
to the Senate by President John Adams on January 3, 1797 , and
received ratification ‘unanimously’ from the entire U.S.Senate on
June 7, 1797. It was signed by Adams, taking effect as the law of the
land on June 10, 1797.
The treaty states:
As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any
sense, founded on the Christian religion,—and as it has in itself
no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of
Mussulmen [Muslims],—and as the said States never entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mahometan [Mohammedan] nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.
Response: The Treaty of Tripoli does not say the United States of America is not a Christian nation. It says that the United States of American is not founded on the Christian religion that in is anyway in enmity or at war or has declared hostilities against the laws and religion of Muslim nations. This is contrasted to the European Christian nations who were at war and had a history of hostilities with Muslim nations. for example, Spain forcing out Muslims in 1492.
John Adams “The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were. .. . the general principles of Christianity. . . . I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God; and that those principles of liberty are as unalterable as human nature. “
