Discern the Present, Then Return to God

It is written: “See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, which are based on human tradition and the spiritual forces of the world rather than on Christ.” -Colossians 2:8 “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’” –Psalm 14:1a Pagans running America

“Jesus is Lord.” This is Christian foundational confession. It was central for the early church and needs to again become central to us. If Jesus is Lord, then Caesar was not—nor any other political ruler since. If Jesus is Lord, no other authority is absolute. Jesus Christ, and the kingdom of God he announced, is the Christian’s first loyalty, above all others. We pray, “Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10). Our faith is personal but never private, meant not only for heaven but for this earth.

True freedom requires people standing on and being obedient to the Holy Word of the Living God!  “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.” -2 Corinthians 3:17 “They [rulers of this age] promise them freedom while they themselves are slaves to depravity- for a man is a slave to whatever has mastered him.” -2 Peter 2:19 Understand sin for what it is.
Legal definition “artificial persons.” God Almighty created you as a natural person, but the worldly elite subject you as their artificial person. District of Columbia (Washington D. C.), an artificial person, named for George Washington, a Founding Father, a Freemason. “You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of human beings.” – 1Corinthians 7:23
Legal definition “deprogramming.” Christians wake UP for you are being dumbed down in your faith! As it is written, “and with every wicked deception directed against those who are perishing, because they refused the love of the truth that would have saved them.” -2 Thessalonians 2:10
America is still an “experimental democracy” whereby all religious belief is blended together making it difficult for the average person to discern one from the other.

Benjamin F. Morris began compiling The Christian Life and Character of the Civil Institutions of the United States about 1853. He understood this labor of love because at that time there were already forces in America which were seeking to deny the Christian origins and foundation, and destroy the dominantly Christian nature of our Constitution and laws.

As the book of Ecclesiastes declares, “There is nothing new under the sun.” Present day American politics in Washington D.C., created by anti-Christ Freemasons, is the same habitual rhetoric that existed in times past: “The city [of Rome] was constantly at war with its neighbors, and internally there was strife between aristocrats and the people, often embodied in disputes between their elected representatives- the consuls and the tribunes. Chronicle of the Roman Republic, Philip Matyszak

The Present Secular Ungodliness

Worldly- concerned with material values or ordinary life rather than a spiritual existence.

^ America: The Bible once used and revered is now suppressed by secularism. This has no ability, however, to change or eradicate the Bible which is “The same today, yesterday, forever.” (See Old Testament)
Churches are not recognized as spiritual community service supports.

How Did the Bible Influence the U.S. Constitution?

“And what other nation is so great as to have such righteous decrees and laws as this body of laws I am setting before you today?” -Deuteronomy 4:8

De jure government practices the teachings from Scripture.

The Bible recognized as Law

Culture-  development or improvement of the mind, morals, etc. ; the ways of living built up by a human group and transmitted to succeeding generations. (Critical commentaryNot all religions (moral obedience to a supreme Deity) are equal. 

Self Control is defined as the ability to take authority over our thoughts, words, and actions”

Vermont Government’s Sins

Manmade law is the inferior law being enforced upon the Land. “We know that the law is good if one uses it properly.” -1 Timothy 1:8a 
Secular de facto government is always making laws seemingly with impunity. Biblically, this is what is meant by the curse of the law, and the secret man of lawlessness

Pluralism- A condition or system in which two or more states, groups, principles, sources of authority, etc., coexist. -English Oxford Dictionary

“His [God’s] divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.” -2 Peter 1:3

Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Oxford—Once Christian? Charles Darwin and the publishing of his book Origin of Species in 1859 turned much of society towards evolutionary thinking.

“We are governing not by God’s standard, or even a Constitutional standard, but by the whims of men.” -Christian Action Ministry, A Conservative Jew and a Contemporary Christian Critique America; July-Aug. 2023, Vol. 33, Number 04.

Returning to the resurrected Christ Jesus, Yeshua

“… if you take away religion, you cannot hire enough police.” -February 8, 2011, Harvard Professor Clay Christensen, the Robert & Jane Cizik Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School (Original source: William Federer)

Jesus is Theocracy. Secularism is Democracy, and definitely puzzling!

“The Church has surrendered her once lofty concept of God and has substituted for it one so low, so ignoble, as to be utterly unworthy of thinking, worshipping men.” –A.W. Tozer

“Erosion of personal responsibilities- First, in denying moral [Biblical] accountability … It has become virtually routine for defense lawyers to argue that defendants were abused as children, denied proper moral training, raised in abject poverty, plagued with learning disabilities, or something of the sort.” -Justice That Restores, Charles Colson; page 62 (Charles Colson use to write speeches for U.S. President Richard Nixon; pg. 57

“The Christian’s primary allegiance is always to Jesus Christ. Christians proclaim Him Lord, recognize Him as their legitimate King, and live as citizens of His kingdom first and foremost. The demands of human government are always secondary to the demands of Christ and His Kingdom—as the lives of countless martyrs and the persecuted church past and present attest.” -Chuck Colson

Take notice of United Nations Declaration of Human rights preamble: “Whereas it is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that human rights should be protected by the rule of law.” (Emphasis added)

“…the law being based on external authority, the law comes to be understood as law only because certain human beings say it is- with no recourse should their judgement be arbitrary. And that end result is not liberation, as advocates of relativism (e.g. what’s true for you is not true for me) promise us, but tyranny.” –Justice That Restores, Charles Colson; pg. 35

Justice Josiah Brewer wrote on February 29, 1892, “Our laws and our institutions must necessarily be based upon and embody the teachings of the Redeemer of mankind. It is impossible that it should be otherwise; and in this sense and to this extent our civilization and our institutions are emphatically Christian” [Church of the Holy Trinity v. United States, 143 U.S. 457-458, 465-471, 36 L ed 226. (1892)]

Excerpt Declaration of Independence: “That, whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.”

Christians are currently under persecution by the secular, godless spiritual entities all over the world. Here is a recorded Old Testament example of persecution: “Then Haman said to King Xerxes, ‘There is a certain people dispersed and scattered among the peoples in all the provinces of your kingdom whose customs are different from those of all other people and who do not obey the king’s laws; it is not in the king’s best interest to tolerate them. If it pleases the king, let a decree be issued to destroy them, and I will put ten thousand talents of silver into the royal treasury for the men who carry out this business.’” -Esther 3:8-9

The spirit of America in 1946: article “Read the Bible… to live a victorious life.”
Rutland, Vermont courthouse “Evil men do not understand justice, but those who seek the Lord understand it fully.” –Proverbs 28:5 “Justice Square” is a delusion whereby judges judge by man’s law, not God’s Law. Secret Society Freemason’s control this system. I, Thomas, was held in contempt of court in this building for bringing up my religious convictions and told that if I persisted in conversation, the Bailiff would come arrest me and put me in jail!

Rutland, VT Courthouse run by Freemasons (Satanism) with a corrupted interpretation of God’s Holy Word! It was in this courthouse that I was held in contempt of court for speaking religious conversation, Nancy Corsones, judge presiding. Whose definition of “justice”? It is written: “And I saw something else under the sun: In the place of judgment—wickedness was there, in the place of justice—wickedness was there.” –Ecclesiastes 3:16

“A powerful State has always been a threat to the existence and influence of the church. Whether the threat be Nazism, Communism, or humanism, a state that is hostile to religion will always attempt to push the church toward forced irrelevancy.  … As the state expands its powers, it can initiate laws that limit the church’s freedoms. “The state excludes the Church from everything which it considers as belonging to the political sphere. At the same time the Church is expected to shrivel up into nothing.” –Hitler’s Cross, Erwin W. Lutzer; pg 199

Where did all the religion in Vermont go?

“…As tyrannical state leaders violate liberty in the name of ‘states rights’we discover that those who coined that term had it wrong. States do not have rights. People have rights. And the purpose of federalism is to protect those rights. … The odds are further stacked by the politicians’ ability to use their citizens’ tax dollars against them... they [people] often encounter court systems that indulge ever presumption in favor of local government.”  -Clint Bolick, Leviathan: The growth of Local Government (leviathan being a monster; immense power); www.hoover.org

America in True Perspective “When a nation becomes powerful that does not mean that such a nation can do what it likes.  Everything must be done with deep respect in accordance with laws of higher order. I am referring here to the divine positive law, the natural law, and the ecclesiastical law.  The divine positive law consists of the Ten Commandments we find in the Bible, which are found in virtually every religion conceivable.  The natural law deals with the law of nature, while the ecclesiastical law deals with rules and regulations enacted by religious authorities.” -Charles Mercieca, Ph.D., President, International Association of Educators for World Peace Dedicated to United Nations Goals of Peace Education

Returning to God

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” -2 Chronicles 7:14 “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.” -Psalm 33:12

“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God.” -Romans 12:2

It is written: “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who approaches Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.” -Hebrews 11:6 Go to Jesus with your weary soul. Be born anew!

“Thy Kingdom come (now present tense!)

Religion. Man’s relation to Divinity, to reverence, worship, obedience, and submission to mandates and precepts of supernatural or superior beings. In its broadest sense includes all forms of belief in the existence of superior beings exercising power over human beings by volition (the act or power of willing, choosing, or resolving), imposing rules of conduct, with future rewards and punishments. Bond uniting man to God, and a virtue (moral excellence) whose purpose is to render God worship due him as source of all being and principle of all government of things.  -Black’s Law Dictionary, 6th Edition

Only when the Cross stands alone, unencumbered with other religions, philosophies, or political ideologies, does it retain its power.” –Hitler’s Cross, Erwin W. Lutzer; page 196

Godly men, women, and children ALWAYS point you back to Christ Jesus! This cannot be emphasized enough. Faith is absolutely necessary to navigate this complex world. Every aspect of life MUST align with Scripture, God’s Holy Word. This means that each living person MUST make the conscience choice to take time to pray, study, and think the issues through building in your mind a correct worldview about life! NO ONE CAN CHEAT this process because this is how God set up the universe.

National/International American preacher Billy Graham on communism: “Satan’s religion” (1954) (alphahistory.com) “Has it ever occurred to you that the Devil is a religious leader and millions are worshipping at his shrine today? … The name of this present-day religion is Communism… The Devil is their god, Marx their prophet, Lenin their saint and Malenkov their high priest. Denying their faith in all ideologies, except their religion of revolution, these diabolically-inspired men seek in devious and various ways to convert a peaceful world to their doctrine of death and destruction.

“The Christian’s primary allegiance is always to Jesus Christ. Christians proclaim Him Lord, recognize Him as their legitimate King, and live as citizens of His kingdom first and foremost. The demands of human government are always secondary to the demands of Christ and His Kingdom—as the lives of countless martyrs and the persecuted church past and present attest.” -Chuck Colson

“The First Amendment of the Constitution was not written to protect the people of this country from religious values; it was written to protect religious values from government tyranny.” -Ronald Reagan

Break strongholds in the mind; that is, replacing wrong belief and cyclical patterns of thinking with the teachings of Christ Jesus. Jesus teaches all to take each thought captive and bring them to obedience of Scripture. Example: instead of going to a secular court to get “justice,” do it God’s way:

“[O]ne brother goes to law against another, and this in front of unbelievers! The very fact that you have lawsuits among you means that you are thoroughly defeated already.” -1 Corinthians 6:6-7a. The issue being, allow God to grow you up into love and spiritual maturity so that you do not have to keep going to another to resolve your problem(s).

“‘Consider carefully what you [judges] do, because you are not judging for man but for the LORD, who is with you whenever you give a verdict. Now let the fear of the LORD be upon you. Judge carefully, for with the LORD our God there is no injustice or partiality or bribery.’ … ‘ You must serve faithfully and wholeheartedly in the fear of the LORD. In every case that comes before you from your fellow countrymen who live in other cities- whether bloodshed or other concerns of the law, commands, decrees, or ordinances- you are to warn them not to sin against the LORD; otherwise his wrath will come upon you and your brothers. Do this, and you will not sin.’”2 Chronicles 19:6, 7, 9, 10

Holy Nation is God’s story

“Torah and the translation of the word Torah are greatly misunderstood by Christians. … Torah means teaching or instruction, not law. Please make a conscious effort to erase what you have heard about ‘LAW’ in biblical teachings. … The Torah judge does not sit on a bench as an inquisitor, nor as a symbol of governmental powers, he sits on his tribunal as a teacher, as one to whom has been given the privilege of interpreting in human terms God’s will and God’s word. … The Jewish legal system functioned without any coercion [government by force]; it could not exercise any physical or penal sanctions. There were no prisons alongside the academies or the synagogues where the Jewish tribunal would convene. There was neither policemen nor bailiffs prepared to carry out the orders of the court. The judge sat completely disarmed. He had nothing, not any powers- except for reverence of Torah and the conscience of the people. Jewish law addressed itself to developing the character of the people, to refining individuals as human personalities, to replacing the lack of external force with the presence of inner sanctity. The law was obeyed not because there were jails, but because a people inwardly accepted it and its decisions. Consequently, its decisions and decrees were carried out with a fidelity and dispatch that no penal system ever inspired. Further the law was obeyed because the people realized and accepted that it was righteous, humane, considerate, and motivated by love of God and total surrender of vanity and self-interest to the principles of His teaching of the inviolate nature of Tzedek- true teaching of God’s justice.”  -Scripture taken from The One New Man Bible, copyright 2011 William J.

Vermont Constitution Article 3rd.  [Freedom of religion; right and duty* of religious worship]

That all men have a natural and unalienable right, to worship Almighty God, according to the dictates of their own consciences and understandings, as in their opinion shall be regulated by the word of God; and that no man ought to, or of right can be compelled to attend any religious worship, or erect or support any place of worship, or maintain any minister, contrary to the dictates of his conscience, nor can any man be justly deprived or abridged of any civil right as a citizen, on account of his religious sentiments, or peculiar mode of religious worship; and that no authority can, or ought to be vested in, or assumed by any power whatever, that shall in any case interfere with, or in any manner control the rights of conscience, in the free exercise of religious worship. Nevertheless, every sect or denomination of Christians ought to observe the Sabbath or Lord’s day, and keep up some sort of religious worship, which to them shall seem most agreeable to the revealed will of God.

The structure of evil. The Vermont Addison Independent on October 21, 1999 correctly quoted me, Thomas Millington: “The practices, purpose, and direction of America is contrary to the Will of God and the Kingdom of Heaven as taught by Jesus Christ and the Holy Bible.”
