The Feb. 19th update to “Two Masters” was written with the assumption that people are still free to decide which master they will serve. Taking a position for or against the position would resolve nothing, in the context of that writing. I contend here that, given the options, the question is why people choose to stay in debt slavery, and reject Biblical liberty. For the purposes of this writing, the choice3 of masters was decided when people chose their commercial identity. By voluntarily choosing U. S. citizenship, people have chosen to serve the debt slavery master, in perpetuity, cradle to grave. This is in stark contrast to the Biblical standard. A debtor would serve the lender for 6 years, and be freed from the debt, at the 7th year. In our culture, bankruptcy only frees the debtor to incur more debt. This system of unjust weights and measure deprive people of all liberty and property. It is all debt, from issuance into circulation, into and through the debt slavery of wages, legally defined as corpotrate profits, received as Federal employees. Like it or not, everything that U. S. citizens receive and possess, is taxable. Welcome to the Federal Debt Plantation.
This topic is written with the belief that people still have the choice of which master they will serve. The rebellious streak in human nature wants to be free of any authority higher than itself. That is a philosophical and spiritual impossibility, as I will demonstrate. Most people respond to the principles that I express in these posts with; “Oh all that old Bible stuff doesn’t apply to people today! Times have changed. We’re so much more modern than dirt farmers and illiterate herdsmen.” Are we really so advanced that there are no limits on behavior? The evidence of the news each day say that humanity hasn’t changed a bit, in 6,000 years.
As I’ve written in the past, every conflict has a commercial root. This principle should be obvious. When the numbers don’t match up with expectations, there is conflict. This applies to everything from the price of a candy bar going up a nickel, to the major changes in the economy. The only certainty is that there is a problem, and someone is going to pay for it. These conflicts get out of control because people fail to distinguish between humanity and commercial identity. In those instances when we find that people don’t seem to be the people we thought we knew, it is because we knew their humanity. The standards and behavior change, when commercial identity takes over.
I don’t know if the last decade will ever be completely behind me. There are parts of it that were necessary to change both my understanding, and direction. That, I can accept. The things that I can not excuse, remain. Learning from those experiences does not add value to the specific activities. Learning does bring me principled conviction. Today, I can describe that resolve. Yesterday, I couldn’t.

30 December A.D. 2011
To the list:
Note how a perfectly correct understanding of the origin of the founding principles isn’t enough to understand how to interact with the present “Beast” system.
Baldwin, the minister, and his son, the attorney, are very committed, even rabid, “constitution-ists.” This author’s brief exchanges with them in the past have been woefully unsuccessful in helping either of them come to terms with our present reality. This author in no way pretends to be “the” source of information that will “cure” anyone’s “blindness” in this or any other “governmental” matter. But, we’ll know when God cures the blindness, because the non-sense about the “constitution” will stop being promoted and advocated at least long enough that today’s commercial system is recognized for what it is and dealt with for what it is.
There’s zero question that the “constitution” intended to form a more perfect union for purposes of better preserving a “christian” (whatever that may mean, today) nation independent from any form or source of authority that tended toward tyranny.
Such system depends heavily upon “christian” self-government, with a heavy emphasis on “self,” as in the individual. Where the individual “governs” himself in a particular line of thought, word, and deed, the community comprised of such individuals is very successfully “governed” via a “constitutional” system of the kind we’ve all been raised to think actually existed and still exists in America.
While a particular emphasis on “freedom” regarding worship of God is, without question, part of the ingredients that went into the mix that formed this nation, it can also be said that “the” purpose in acting on the concept of establishing a national government via a “constitution” was to organize a system by which tyranny was rendered illegal and practically impossible at the national level.
In the effort to prevent tyranny and to render tyranny illegal, there was one principle so overwhelmingly motivating that all others, including “freedom” to worship God, pale in comparison. That one overriding principle was the issue of Money. The “States” had “returned to Egypt” by circulating “Bills of Credit” as currency. It was “the” early form of what passes today as “federal reserve notes.” It wasn’t an asset or evidence of an asset being used as “money.” It was a “debt” instrument. The Founding Fathers recognized “immediately” what that meant. It meant tyranny in the making. So they did the unheard of and formed (at least in concept) a system at the national level, i.e., a step above, the “States,” which system rendered the circulation of “Bills of Credit” illegal.
It was a great idea. As a practical matter, that effort kept “funny money” out of circulation until circa 1965, 1966, when the last vestiges of “silver certificates” were recalled, the silver coins were sucked out of circulation, and the “sandwich tokens” still called “coins” were first circulated. That was about 170 years’ worth of “freedom” from overt tyranny via the circulation of “funny money,” originally known as “Bills of Credit.”
But, in this monumental effort, the Founding Fathers overlooked the obvious and didn’t nail down the one definition that truly would render tyranny, via taking over the Money system and perverting it into a “funny money” system, illegal and practically impossible. The Founding Fathers never defined the unit of account. They never defined “dollar.” (Iceland is at the stage where they CAN define their “unit of account” in terms of grains of fine silver. We’ll see if they have the sense and foresight to do so.)
If the Founding Fathers had defined “dollar” as a weight measured in terms of grains of fine silver, then it surely would be that much more impossible for anyone to show up over here and market (successfully) a privately-owned, “debt” instrument system as a substitute for honest weights and measures. Surely there would have been a “hue and cry” the instant there was a change of any sort in that definition or for what passed as “currency.” It’s precisely because “dollar” was not defined, in the “constitution,” that the door was left wide open for exactly what we’re dealing with “today.”
Not to worry. That “oversight” was in no way accidental. Nothing happens at that level of national leadership independent from the direct intervention of God, Himself. The Founding Fathers were destined to fail in that extremely noble effort. We, The Posterity, are the ones on whom has devolved the responsibility of putting that particular brick (back) into the foundation and walls of the “proper” governmental system and structure.
So, despite the very correct connection between the concept of Biblical principles and the foundation for the “constitution,” which foundation is the Common Law, also known as the Law of the Land, the origin of which is Scripture, there persists to this day, in the teeth of the non-existence of anything even remotely Biblical about that which passes as “currency,” the notion that there exists, today, as we speak, a “constitutional” basis for that which passes as “government” in DC (and in the various STATEhouses).
To make the connection between Scripture and government is to recognize and confirm how everyone knows that there is not any “constitution” “in play,” or in any way relevant, to “governmental” activities at the national level, and, for that matter, at any level.
To understand what Money is and means in Biblical times is to zero in rapidly on one of the greatest confirmations that there is no “constitutional” system active today anywhere in the land, at any level of “government.” (This reality is not limited to America. Anywhere there’s “funny money,” there’s tyranny against those people, all controlled by the “banksters.”)
Some want, feverishly, to recognize validity in the original activities that have been marketed to us as sufficient to kick-start the “constitutional” system, based on which false presumption and teachings they then associate some later date to the demise of the “constitutional” system. Some look to the 1965 time period, and directly after that, during which time the UCC came into existence for the STATEs. Some look to the time period associated with removing selection of Senators from the STATEs and putting that into the hands of the people. (That’s hugely significant, for where there are no States, it’s impossible to have a “Union of States.”) Some look to the time period just before the War of Northern Aggression and the “sine die” adjournment of congress. All of those lines of discussion miss the point completely, for they all presume into existence that which never was. The reality is that the “constitutional” effort was flawed from the outset both substantively and procedurally. It simply never was “admissible evidence of law.” Where this or that part of the constitution is recognized as evidence of law, it’s because the Supreme Court has so recognized it. Given that the “constitution” is a package deal, as in “all or nothing,” it follows that where any part is missing, it’s not just that part that’s missing but rather the whole that is missing.
What was the medium of exchange in Biblical times? Right! Silver (and gold), whether in coined form or in bullion form. To say silver was to say Money, and to say Money was to say silver.
In America, gold was taken out of circulation via FDR in about, what, 1933, 1935, somewhere in there. (It’s been revived, as confirmed by the “gold clause” cases in the last 1980’s, if memory serves. Gold is recognized in “this state.” Silver is not, but gold is.) Silver was taken out of circulation under Johnson’s administration circa 1965. “They” had to assassinate JFK to accomplish it, but “they” did assassinate him, and “they” did accomplish it. As of the end of 1965, there were no more Biblical weights and measures in general circulation as Currency in America. That which pretended to be “currency” was “funny money.”
Part of the “constitutional” plan is missing. Here, the missing part of focus is the general circulation of gold and silver Coin, and, even more to the point, their exclusive means of extinguishment of debt.
Because we’re dealing with a “package deal,” where part is missing, the whole is missing.
There has never been a “constitution.” For the immediate present, for those who just can’t picture the world without a “constitution,” it is sufficient for our present purposes of coming to grips with that system that pretends to have “governmental” authority that one recognize, and not just recognize, but internalize, the connection between Money and Scripture. If we had a “constitutional” system, right now, today, i.e., if we had a system based upon Biblical principles, then we’d have gold and/or silver Coin in general circulation as our Currency. Since we have no gold or silver Coin, especially the silver, in general circulation, we are not dealing with any system that looks to the Common Law, i.e., the Law of the Land, i.e., Biblical principles, as its foundational source of authority.
It’s difficult for the “feds” to confess and market and broadcast the difference(s) any more plainly. Possible, but difficult.
It’s precisely because there is no (Biblical) system of honest weights and measures in general circulation that we know we’re not dealing with a “governmental” system that looks to the Law of the Land. It’s precisely because there is no (Biblical) system of honest weights and measures in general circulation that we know we’re dealing with a system that looks to the Law of the Sea. Under a (Biblical) system based on the Law of the Land, to circulate “funny money” as Currency isn’t merely fraud; it’s Treason. Thus, where no one is going to jail, or worse, for circulating “funny money,” it follows that the system looks to the Law of the Sea, the only source/choice of law that tolerates “funny money.”
May The Lord God Almighty take this opportunity to cure some more cases of “blindness” when it comes to the reality of His Judgments via His “Beast” system, which system exists to devour and to destroy the rebellious.
It is rebellion against God to use anything other than an honest system of weights and measures in our commercial activity. We’re going to be stuck in this form and version of rebellion for so long as we continue to kid ourselves that it’s not a problem, much less evidence of rebellion. We’ve spent our way into this one, and we can spend our way out, IF we’ll make the commitment to doing it God’s way.
Once again, this author applauds those business enterprises that have started allowing their customers, patients, patrons, and clients to extinguish the obligation(s) with honest weights and measures. To state this once again, it’ll be the Mom and Pop shops, i.e., the family owned and operated business enterprises, that’ll lead this nation through one more of its darkest moments and eras. Those are the enterprises most able to make that adjustment.
In sum, yes, let there be no confusion or doubt about the connection between the “constitution” and its source of authority. The “constitution” looked to the Law of the Land, the origin and source for which is Scripture. Absolutely right.
That being so plainly the case, why is it that it’s still so confusing to so many “constitution-ists” that we do not now have anything any remotely resembling a “constitutional” system, given that what screams at us for our pocketbooks is that which exists, specifically and intentionally, to deny and to defy God when it comes to honest weights and measures? Individuals who use “funny money” without the slightest care in the world about what they’re really doing, from God’s point of view, are not self-governed individuals. (To recognize the problem, whether one is in a position to do anything, at all, about it, immediately, hopefully leads to the ink dot on the forehead. SeeEzekiel 9. Regarding the apostasy that compels the “Passover”-like Judgment in Ez. 9, see Ez. 8.)
How does any group of people bring any nation into Judgment? In other words, how have the “banksters” accomplished it? Brilliantly! They know Scripture better than we do! They can see that the nations that were seduced into straying so far from Biblical principles as to commit “rebellion” are Judged by God Almighty, Himself. All the “banksters” had to do was supply a means for that rebellion; hence, the “funny money.” The rest has taken care of itself.
(The additional forms of immorality zealously advocated and promoted through TV and movies aren’t helping, to be sure, but those seem to be accepted already as “individual choices.” What we use as the medium of exchange is another “individual choice” we must recognize as a “choice” that exists and one that then must be exercised where possible.)
Yes, there’s some (slight) benefit to God’s having blinded us, but here we are, still facing life under tyrannical rule. Unless we want more life under tyranny, we can no longer depend on that blindness as any form of “benefit.” Nothing about this change in what we bring to the marketplace as Currency will come from “on high,” because those “on high” are the very people intent on perpetuating the rule via tyranny.
That’s another way of saying that there are no “political” solutions. The solutions are commercial, which means “individual,” and we just have to know that the choice exists and that how we “vote” with each transaction really does matter. We “vote” for the international banking cartel as “king,” along with their system of tyranny with every transaction based on “funny money.” We “vote” for God as King, and His system of Law, with every transaction based on honest weights and measures.

The United States of America was once a nation of laws, consistent with Biblical standards. Where we departed from that path is very clear in history. The requirements and consequences are as certain and immutable as the Law of Gravity. It is obvious that America has been suffering the Biblical curses of War, Famine, Pestilence and Plague, for the past 150 years.
It is a basic flaw in human nature that brings people to accept things as they are, as good and right. The false commercial mentality that is indoctrinated into everyone by indoctrination into the corporate structure produces automatic and predictable responses, when confronted with the truth. It’s not our fault. we live our lives in ignorance, Many times, I’ve asked why I couldn’t have just stayed blissfully ignorant, going along to get along. The answer is found, everywhere in Scripture. I couldn’t be left in ignorance. People claim to follow Yeshua ha Maschiach, Jesus the Christ. Actually doing that requires knowing what the rules are, and walking in them. Instead, the commercial identity, the way of the world, automatically shoots the messenger.
That is the way it is. If people really knew what that meant, they would be horrified. It is not our fault. We inherited lies from our fathers. It isn’t their fault, either. We couldn’t be trained in the way we should go, any better than they were. Fortunately, the world and it’s rebellious system is being revealed for what it is. It is institutionalized prostitution, It is a very complex system of indentured servitude, to the wrong master. It is becoming impossible to live and function in society, while still maintaining personal integrity and a clean conscience.
People don’t know that their commercial actions contradict everything they claim to be. Today, a newborn child can’t leave the hospital, without the application for a Social Security number filled out. Parents don’t know that they are pledging their children as security for debt. They are selling them to the state. They are participating in human trafficking.
People don’t know that, when they voluntarily affirm that they are U. S. citizens or legal residents, they reject YHVH and His ways. They don’t care what is written. They’re too busy satisfying a government that presents itself as their god, and demands worship and tribute. U. S. citizens have volunteered to pay the debts of the Federal corporation. They have given their consent to all that corporation does in their name. U. S citizens insist in staying in this Babylonian system of unjust weights and measures. They compel everyone they encounter, to do the same. The consequences of insisting on believing the lies of the corporation will have disastrous consequences. There is only one good choice left. We have had many warnings. This is only the beginning of sorrows.
Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
2008 was a warning. The financial world received a shock that it still hasn’t recovered from. 2011 has been another year of warnings. The currency itself is an abomination. The more people trust in it, the more they will suffer. There are 10 million people in the United States, who are one month’s expenses away from being out in the street, with nowhere to go. This is only the beginning. Everything that people believe and trust in will disappear. It was never real. The system has always rebelled against Biblical truth, as well as it’s own history. The choice is clear. Choose this day, whom you will serve.
The United States of America was once a nation of laws, consistent with Biblical standards. Where we departed from that path is very clear in history. The requirements and consequences are as certain and immutable as the Law of Gravity. It is obvious that America has been suffering the Biblical plagues of War, Famine, Pestilence and Plague, for the past 150 years.
By the middle of the 19th century, America had reached a point of lawlessness in public and institutional conduct, that changes began. Those changes in the structure of society and the commercial activity that ensued, produced a very different environment what the Founders had envisioned. In the most basic choice of law, the currency changed. The War of Federal Conquest wasn’t the first bought with fiat currency, but it is the longest lasting departure from the Biblical standard definition of money.
We were warned, and did not heed the warning. The penalties for failure to keep and follow the instructions of God, and to execute His judgments are very specific. The causality of action leading to consequence is a hard standard that many cultures have not survived. I will focus on one of those standards, that of just weights and measures.
Lev 19:35 Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in meteyard, in weight, or in measure.
Lev 19:36 Just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin, shall ye have: I am the LORD your God, which 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.
The battle over money began in colonial days. In Rhode Island, the penalty for refusing to accept the paper currency was death. The inflation rate reached 2,000%, per year. Bankruptcy was swift, In 1013, the United States decided that it didn’t want Biblical standards, anymore. Instead, Congress chose what was behind Door #2, and passed The Federal Reserve Act of 1913. This brought us into the Babylonian, Greco-Roman monetary system of government fiat. We have reaped the crop from that rebellious seed, ever since. That action brought on a series of events that should have brought us to our knees and turned us from our wicked ways. There was no question in anyone’s mind, that the Great Depression was extreme hardship. It wasn’t just monetary collapse. Crops were destroyed by drought or devoured by pests. Epidemics spread through the country, like wildfire. A whirlwind season in 1934 brought 15 dust storms that ravaged the land. Yet, this wasn’t as far as it could have gone. Even though the last Biblical curse to afflict us was WW II, there are yet unrealized possibilities.
Deu 28:56 The tender and delicate woman among you, which would not adventure to set the sole of her foot upon the ground for delicateness and tenderness, her eye shall be evil toward the husband of her bosom, and toward her son, and toward her daughter,
Deu 28:57 And toward her young one that cometh out from between her feet, and toward her children which she shall bear: for she shall eat them for want of all things secretly in the siege and straitness, wherewith thine enemy shall distress thee in thy gates.
Deu 28:58 If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that thou mayest fear this glorious and fearful name, THE LORD THY GOD;
Deu 28:59 Then the LORD will make thy plagues wonderful, and the plagues of thy seed, even great plagues, and of long continuance, and sore sicknesses, and of long continuance.
Deu 28:60 Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt, which thou wast afraid of; and they shall cleave unto thee.
Deu 28:61 Also every sickness, and every plague, which is not written in the book of this law, them will the LORD bring upon thee, until thou be destroyed.
Deu 28:62 And ye shall be left few in number, whereas ye were as the stars of heaven for multitude; because thou wouldest not obey the voice of the LORD thy God.
Deu 28:63 And it shall come to pass, that as the LORD rejoiced over you to do you good, and to multiply you; so the LORD will rejoice over you to destroy you, and to bring you to nought; and ye shall be plucked from off the land whither thou goest to possess it.
Deu 28:64 And the LORD shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even wood and stone.
Deu 28:65 And among these nations shalt thou find no ease, neither shall the sole of thy foot have rest: but the LORD shall give thee there a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind:
Deu 28:66 And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee; and thou shalt fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of thy life:
Does it have to come down to women eating their children because of hardship and poverty, again? That is how severe judgment can be. It is severe enough that Homeland Security has made contingency plans to deal with possible cannibalism, in the major cities. But don’t despair. There is a remedy and there is a plan to escape the worst of possibilities.
2Ch 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
2Ch 7:15 Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place.
2Ch 7:16 For now have I chosen and sanctified this house, that my name may be there for ever: and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually.
2Ch 7:17 And as for thee, if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy father walked, and do according to all that I have commanded thee, and shalt observe my statutes and my judgments;
2Ch 7:18 Then will I stablish the throne of thy kingdom, according as I have covenanted with David thy father, saying, There shall not fail thee a man to be ruler in Israel.
If historical example is not enough for us, there is nothing left to be said. I would ask everyone the question that I’ve asked myself, many times.
What then, shall we do? Will we continue in the “way it is”. or shall we admit that we have inherited lies from our fathers? Will we turn from this course of certain destruction, or will we perish in the destruction to come? There is a very clear choice before us. Choose life.
