American Stories – Enslavement And Liberty

The future and success of America is not in this Constitution, but in the laws of God upon which this Constitution is founded.– James Madison

Now is the time to roll this out. PDT and supporters have been unfairly and unreasonably attacked for years and we have been at a loss at what to do about it outside of the violence the black hats want to incite so they can throw martial law at us. That is how the commie evil works. Do not fall for it.

This story series is a change of plan as I retire both BIMD and Civilized War. it is the writer’s prerogative. 😂 The Civilized War theme is being handled beautifully by our Gail, Joe Lange of Badlands and others as they deep dive on historical events that tie to current events that hopefully reveal to YOU, the readers, that the United States of America have not been UNITED since shortly after the Revolutionary War. In fact, we have been under siege by traitors and seditionists with foreign assistance the entire time. That’s over two CENTURIES for those keeping score at home.

So, we must be a very important target for Satan and his minions to take down. What should that tell us? Those are the type questions and observations we will discuss here as we progress.

My plan is to cherrypick interconnected topics in our American heritage and further expose them in stories. What you will clearly see with each is there is a scriptural reference or answer to lead us to a successful understanding and conclusion of how to address going forward. You will be able to arrive at it using research, comparisons, and logic along with critical thinking skills that the Creator of the universe gave you.

The words from posts of many readers of the QTree are what have inspired this series. I have followed the thoughts and expressions of many of you through the years. There are common themes I have observed from the comments and they reflect a yearning for freedom, truth, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. You want to see the good guys and gals win with evil doers punished. You may or may not believe in the God the Father of Abram and Moses or in his son, Jesus Christ. However, all of you expect good things and fair treatment in life that have been defined as good and fair by the Word of God. You have a vested interest in seeing our nation follow and administer the legal documents that are in place. After all, they are our rules for living in this country.

So, let’s get started and allow your minds and imaginations to run free with what could and should be.

Back To The Ancients

A couple of the primary purposes of the BIMD series were to show how many of us are interconnected in some way as well as the parallels if we find the links. We tend to slide through life unaware of the links to people and events. However, the ancient Hebrew people were well aware of them. God told them it was important to remember and tell future generations. So they went on to record their genealogies, rules for living, events, emotions, songs, prayers and so on.

If it was important for the chosen of God, it must be equally important for all people. However, we need to trust God with our whole hearts and minds to fully understand why, and better yet, experience the benefits of doing so. As an example, there are excellent reasons I and II Chronicles exist in the Bible and they are not just for history lessons. For those who are not familiar, the link below gives an accurate summary of them. It is a five minute read, tops.

Now that we have a general idea, let us dig into a scripture passage that could and should apply today in America if we had Godly leaders and/or a similar singularly focused commitment by We the People.

II Chronicles 20:5-30 (NKJV)

Then Jehoshaphat stood in the assembly of Judah and Jerusalem, in the house of the Lord, before the new court, and said: “O Lord God of our fathers, are You not God in heaven, and do You not rule over all the kingdoms of the nations, and in Your hand is there not power and might, so that no one is able to withstand You? Are You not our God, who drove out the inhabitants of this land before Your people Israel, and gave it to the descendants of Abraham Your friend forever? And they dwell in it, and have built You a sanctuary in it for Your name, saying, ‘If disaster comes upon us—sword, judgment, pestilence, or famine—we will stand before this temple and in Your presence (for Your name is in this temple), and cry out to You in our affliction, and You will hear and save.’ 10 And now, here are the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir—whom You would not let Israel invade when they came out of the land of Egypt, but they turned from them and did not destroy them— 11 here they are, rewarding us by coming to throw us out of Your possession which You have given us to inherit. 12 O our God, will You not judge them? For we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are upon You.”

13 Now all Judah, with their little ones, their wives, and their children, stood before the Lord.

14 Then the Spirit of the Lord came upon Jahaziel the son of Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel, the son of Mattaniah, a Levite of the sons of Asaph, in the midst of the assembly. 15 And he said, “Listen, all you of Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem, and you, King Jehoshaphat! Thus says the Lord to you: ‘Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s. 16 Tomorrow go down against them. They will surely come up by the Ascent of Ziz, and you will find them at the end of the brook before the Wilderness of Jeruel. 17 You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord, who is with you, O Judah and Jerusalem!’ Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them, for the Lord is with you.”

18 And Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground, and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem bowed before the Lord, worshiping the Lord. 19 Then the Levites of the children of the Kohathites and of the children of the Korahites stood up to praise the Lord God of Israel with voices loud and high.

20 So they rose early in the morning and went out into the Wilderness of Tekoa; and as they went out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Hear me, O Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem: Believe in the Lord your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper.” 21 And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who should sing to the Lord, and who should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army and were saying:

“Praise the Lord,
For His mercy endures forever.”

22 Now when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushes against the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; and they were defeated. 23 For the people of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of Mount Seir to utterly kill and destroy them. And when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, they helped to destroy one another.

24 So when Judah came to a place overlooking the wilderness, they looked toward the multitude; and there were their dead bodies, fallen on the earth. No one had escaped.

25 When Jehoshaphat and his people came to take away their spoil, they found among them an abundance of valuables on the dead bodies, and precious jewelry, which they stripped off for themselves, more than they could carry away; and they were three days gathering the spoil because there was so much. 26 And on the fourth day they assembled in the Valley of Berachah, for there they blessed the Lord; therefore the name of that place was called The Valley of Berachah until this day. 27 Then they returned, every man of Judah and Jerusalem, with Jehoshaphat in front of them, to go back to Jerusalem with joy, for the Lord had made them rejoice over their enemies. 28 So they came to Jerusalem, with stringed instruments and harps and trumpets, to the house of the Lord. 29 And the fear of God was on all the kingdoms of those countries when they heard that the Lord had fought against the enemies of Israel. 30 Then the realm of Jehoshaphat was quiet, for his God gave him rest all around.

What Was Once Can Be Again

Are we paying attention, America?

King Jehoshaphat addressed the Lord and to summarize his words said something like this in our language, “Lord, we left those enemy peoples alone per your commands when You brought us out of Egypt. You gave us this land forever because of your relationship with father Abraham. Now these enemies are threatening us and we do not know what to do. We are scared. Their forces are too large and we are out of ideas and options. So we are putting our fate into your hands while we seek your favor and protection. Our eyes are on you.”

Then a man from the priestly Levite line named Jehoshaphat (whose name meant “God sees”) who received God’s divine instructions tells the King and people to quit worrying and show up in the valley at the Wilderness of Tekoa where the enemy is preparing for war the next morning. In essence he tells them that God’s got this. The King and people humble themselves before the Lord, believe, and wait.

They then went out the next morning to face their enemies with complete trust in the outcome. When they arrived on the scene they found the Lord had already fought their battle. They see that it was a complete wipe out, nothing but dead bodies everywhere. Apparently their enemies had turned upon themselves to their own complete destruction. So with God’s blessing the people proceeded to take all the good stuff. They head home after a few days of collecting the spoils, singing praises to the Lord and rejoicing. For the rest of King Jehoshaphat’s reign there was peace. I guess so, nobody much would want to mess with a nation that had a God that would fight for them like that.

Faith, trust, obedience, deliverance, joy. That is victory.

Which leads to this observation. The decisions made and actions taken by the people discussed in those two books affected what has happened throughout history as well as what happens in the future on this planet and in Heaven. If you doubt it, look at Israel, Gaza and the Middle East today. We can be so very thankful for this recording of history.

Jesus And The Parables

Jesus continued this method of communication through stories that contained parables for good reasons. Parables are simply illustrations within a larger story that compare one thing to something else. He utilized old testament scripture, history, people, multiple meanings, parallels and interconnections that some listeners could relate to and grasp. They would contain hooks that would encourage the listeners to go deeper in their understanding. The listeners would know or need to know the context in which they were told.

This later point is one reason why so many struggle with understanding the Bible through the years. This same struggle happened to those who were present and listened to Jesus during that time as well as today as we read the the Word or hear it taught and preached. Even his closest disciples had difficulty understanding His words and applying. As a result many were more interested in the miracles He performed. In doing so they missed the most important lessons from the life giving Word as told through the Son of God in doing so. The miracles only happened because the Word of the Son of God was believed and trusted.

In effect, we all need a “rhema” moment as Paul describes. This is when what you hear or read leads you to see things in a new or different way. They become “Eureka!” moments when it all makes sense. The light bulb comes on. You then take it into your being, who you are, and act on it. Which leads to the next, the next, the next and so on. Along that journey you gain from the Lord’s wisdom and insight. His ways become your ways just as Jahaziel exhibited in the previous story. The Lord trusted Him to deliver the message of salvation from those who would destroy His people. The Lord wanted the people to know in advance what would happen to encourage their faith.

However, it all took the faith of the leader of the nation, King Jehoshaphat, to be willing to humble himself and acknowledge that as a people they could not make it on their own. Next, it took the people to realize they were in trouble and that they should go to the Lord and trust His response to their predicament. In that process we learn there was a man in their midst who had a strong relationship with Yahweh. He was trusted by Him to relay the message of future deliverance.

Throughout history many people have demonstrated they are unwilling to take the next step of faith and commit their heads and hearts to understanding God’s Word and its application. They seek reasons not to and instead, discount the value and avoid. They resist committing time, brain cells and their whole hearts to the endeavor. Yet, it is within this commitment decision that the answers they seek lie and rhema comes.

This inattention or rejection of what is important leads to personal enslavement. Do not miss that point. People have the God-given opportunity to participate with their Creator for eternity, yet, choose to yawn, ignore, blow off and move on to more worldly pursuits that interest them. That decision leads to slavery.

Again, Joshua 24:15; Choose this day whom you will serve. Even Dylan knows.

To fully receive what the Lord has for us, including the liberty we seek, we must commit to the pursuit. Slackers will not be rewarded. The Lord knows His children and who genuinely seeks His voice and counsel. He will not cast his pearls before swine as stated in Matthew 7:6. He will not allow the answers to be used against His purposes. As a result the wise follower approaches His throne humbly with a sincere spirit in seeking greater understanding and assistance.

Just as we saw King Jehoshaphat do.

The Ten Commandments and laws were principles for living that also had real life consequences if violated. There is little doubt what a command means; abide by each or expect repercussions. They were the hammer, no gray area left to discuss. They are also timeless and do not need a government of the world to administer or a sermon to understand their validity. In contrast the parables of Christ expanded the reach of God’s commands, laws and will into a guide for daily living and human relations, which He lived out in front of everybody. They were the real world application. They corrected many misconceptions and improper practices that had been developed by the Pharisees, Sadducees and others through the centuries. It is no wonder that Jesus was met with such hostility by the Establishment of His day. He disrupted their money tree and links to power over the people.

As it applies to our lives in America today, does living in accordance with God’s will negatively impact what the Establishment of today tries to accomplish? You bet it does. All we have to do is compare back to the ancients again to see confirmation that there is nothing new under the sun.

You may ask what was so troublesome with how the Hebrew leaders handled the 613 commandments found in scriptures in the Torah that were provided by God before Christ arrived on the scene? Hebrew leaders compiled and proceeded to expand the teachings of God’s commands with their interpretations and required applications, which later took the form of The Talmud (Jerusalem and Babylonian) and other related documents. This led to legalism and style over substance. Some were evil in intent. These teachings were administered and enforced by the religious authorities in their theocracy of religious government. They imposed their “yoke” on the people that led to burdens they could not endure over time. The apostate Hebrew leaders were responsible, just as apostate Christian and Jewish leaders are today, when they add to or take away from the God-given message and context of the Holy Word. The imposed burden becomes slavery to achieve the ends of the leaders, in direct conflict with God’s will for His people.

The commandments and laws of God were given to assist mankind and enable them to remain faithful to Him. Mankind did not exist to serve the commandments and laws.

America Today

Does any of that sound familiar, fellow American citizens?

We have a Declaration of Independence and Constitution based on Godly principles provided by believers in God who founded this country. All signers of the former were self proclaimed Christians at the time of signing. Half had divinity school training. There were 55 Protestants and one Catholic. Of this 56, 48 were born in the American colonies. It is believed by some sources that a few changed to unitarian or became deists at some points after the signing. However, for anybody to say this nation was not founded on Christian principles is absurd. Do not buy that load of garbage.

https://www.historynewsnetwork.org/article/did-you-know-that-half-the-declarations-signers-ha

The vast majority of the Constitution signers were also Christian along with a handful of deists and others who believed in the foundational moralities and truths of the Bible. There were 39 signers of the Declaration who also signed the Constitution. Despite attempts by the rewriters of history and the efforts of their fact checking scoundrel comrades; those facts are irrefutable. The recorded words and lives of the founders attested to the Christian understanding as do the documents themselves. They are two of the most noble, humanitarian governing documents ever produced in world history. The unique thing is that you do not have to be a Christian to receive the benefits of a Constitution that is designed for We the People to govern.

What has happened since the founding of the nation and the implementation of said Constitution? There has been an assault on original intent with the lawless seizing of authority and powers by people opposed to its content using operatives placed in positions of authority and influence. None of this is more glaring than with the unauthorized control over national affairs by our Establishment. These criminals are the current ruling class who have imposed their wills top down on We the People. What they do is a complete circumvention of the laws of our land.

The worldly bible of our nation, the Constitution, defines who has ultimate authority and it is We the People. The Constitution and government that administers it exist for the benefit of We the People. We the People do not exist or serve for the benefit of the Constitution and the government that administers it. The elected officials, their administrative support and agency operatives work for us. Do they act like they do?

As a legally formulated representative Republic, these elected officials who do their own wills and form alliances freely choose to act against the will of We the People, often times in a criminal manner. This is not what God’s will was for His people in ancient Israel or today in America, the land and people dedicated to God at its inception as a nation.

Watching the crimes of these usurpers being committed in full view of the world; the next step normally would be for We the People to identify the offenders who commit them, inform law enforcement entities, and hold the prosecution of same accountable. Knowing that process, the Establishment thoroughly corrupted not only the political parties and processes, but also the enforcement entities and the judiciary. What may be missed in that now obvious conclusion is that the process of corruption took more than a century to accomplish to the current level.

The Establishment simply became levers of control for a cabal of powerful, globalist criminals who desire to rule the world. They follow the will of Satan. All of what they do is opposed to God’s will for the people per his Holy Word. You know it by the fruit of their labors. Who benefits the most from their system?

So what does Satan do to people who cower and refuse to resist? They become enslaved to his will instead of being accountable to God’s. Which was a historical fate of the ancient Hebrews when they took their eyes off God. Conversely, what was the result when they cast their eyes on Him and fully trusted? It is the same for America.

Countering Satanic Oppression In America Today

II Chronicles 20: 12-13:

12 O our God, will You not judge them? For we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are upon You.”

13 Now all Judah, with their little ones, their wives, and their children, stood before the Lord.

Deliverance from slavery and death means we, more specifically MAGA supporters, must humbly approach and keep our eyes on the Lord. Take the step in faith and believe, just like King Jehoshaphat and the ancient Israelites learned. The Lord will then reveal what it is we are to do, if anything. Accept that His will for our lives is best, whatever that may be.

In doing that, what should we avoid? Doing evil, sinning, not trusting Him, and not answering His call when He places something on our hearts. He will tell us when and what if He wants us to do something. All we do is simply live blameless in His sight and keep our eyes upon Him, trusting in His providence and grace, one step and one day at time.

Then humbly watch what He does to deliver us from evil. See the results from God addressing those who would do us harm as they destroy themselves, just like King Jehoshaphat and the ancient Israelites did.

Notice what did not happen in that Biblical story? The King and people were not given the privilege of watching the destruction of their enemies. They were only permitted to see the end result. Bear that in mind for future reference with our current civil war battle in America. I believe God did not want the people to be filled with pride, which would lead them to sin.

Conclusion

All of what has happened in the world since the times of the ancient Hebrews has been the same war raging for the souls of mankind. It is no wonder we are in the condition we are as a nation. We need to accept that this other worldly war will never end until Jesus returns as the Bible indicates. We know this to be applicable to us because this nation was dedicated to God and His principles at its founding.

We know from factual history and observations on the ground today that God will not reward our nation’s leaders for placing a burdensome yoke of enslavement on We the People. Our existence as a nation happened due to the burning desire to escape that same type burden. This desire is voiced throughout our founding documents. Which is why it all seems to be in chaos around us at times. Collectively we have been taking our eyes off God. Instead we have trusted the might of our military, our economy, politics, our ingenuity and so on to stay safe and live well; all of which has been crumbling around us. Now, we keep looking for a knight in shining armor to save the day. Meanwhile all of our existence and expectations can be gone in a blink of an eye as we are learning.

Despite that there is hope. It can all change today…

These stories that tell us of His truth are precious to the soul. They keep us grounded and hopeful for better days. The real history of America reveals we are a nation dedicated to God and His purposes. When we turn from that dedication, that mission of hope for all people; we and others dependent on us suffer the consequences.

We are the sons and daughters of liberty who trust God. We must respond as the faithful of the past did who had their eyes on God and yearned for freedom instead of slavery. If we do, great things will happen.

Amen!!!

It’s beginning to look like yearning for freedom and appealing to God is our only option. I truly believed that prayers to the Almighty is why Trump stepped up. I never trusted the 4D chess descriptions but I did trust that God was guiding him. Here we are, like so many before us facing extinction and praying that some unknown number of humans must also turn to God .

A timely reminder in trying times indeed. How many times are we distracted from our ultimate goal?

TY for this timely reminder of where our focus & effort should be. It’s much easier to say than to do, at least for me.

This post I did just before January 6, 2021 might be a good companion piece for what you shared here, or vice versa. Given all that’s happened since then it would be quite challenging for me to attempt to put such a piece together now…sigh…hung up harps & all…Blessings on this new endeavor 🙂
