None are so hopelessly enslaved, as those who falsely believe they are free. The truth has been kept from the depth of their minds by masters who rule them with lies. They feed them on falsehoods till wrong looks like right in their eyes.
-Johann von Goethe
Let every soul be subject to the Higher Power… With this statement it is recognized that no mortal man can be absolutely sovereign. But the bible does teach us to attain the highest level of sovereignty that we can. As a matter of fact it is a requirement for those who walk in the Spirit. “But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.” (1Co 2:15) This is the position that can only be attained by one who exercises biblical sovereignty.
What is Sovereignty but Self-Government and that with a recognition of THE Highest Power which Every soul must be subject to. This very self-government is recognized as a fruit of the spirit; The King James Bible terms it temperance at Gal 5.23 which means self-governing and proclaims that “against such there is no law.” At Eph 5.8-11 it continues to say that those who walk in the light, exhibiting the fruit of the Spirit prove “what is acceptable unto the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”
During the Inquisitions men died rather than bow to the sovereignty of a Pope or hierarchy of men that sought to place itself between them and their God as revealed to them by The Word of GOD and His Holy Spirit. Daniel chose the lions den and his fellows chose the fiery furnace only to demonstrate where the line is. That line is where an earthly authority requires us to break the Law of THE Highest Power, and that is the Law of GOD which must reign supreme.
The commandment is to “FEAR NOT them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather FEAR HIM (GOD) which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” So what is a Sovereign? One who voluntarily stands under (understands) the Law of GOD exercising the self-control to subject himself to it, a man who fears GOD and keeps His commandments no matter what the cost. This is the highest level of sovereignty available to man. Anything less is illusion.
Recently the 60 MINUTES TV PROGRAM did a hit piece on “Sovereign Citizens.” The very term is an oxymoron. In truth the closest thing to a Sovereign Citizen would be a member of the elite ruling class in this modern Roman Republic World Governing System, the likes of Congressmen, Dictators, Presidents, Popes, Cardinals and the Heads of the Money Cartels. The 60 MINUTES example of kooky so-called “sovereign citizens” were men who obviously had little concept of Biblical Self-Control.
The Apostle Paul wrote, “when I became a man, I put away childish things.” By the Biblical maxim, “the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant…”(Gal 4:1) this puts us on notice that only grown men can be sovereign or attain that highest form of liberty. So we are commanded when we hear the call of Liberty, “Art thou called being a servant? care not for it: but if thou mayest be made free, use it rather. (1Co 7:21) God calls us to grow up!
Daniel and his fellows were slaves and not in a position where they could be made free, but they did exercise the conscience of free men when they refused to break the Law of GOD as commanded by their owner even at the cost of their very lives. So we find ourselves men when we come to the realization that we are not free and desire to put away childish things and our voluntary slavery. We can be made free, we should rather use it!
When you become a man and find that you or your parents volunteered you into a child/dependent relationship with a fictional entity [The State] that requires you to participate in a scheme which is against the commandments of GOD you are faced with a choice: to forsake the Law of GOD or to forsake the unlawful associations of men. In that 60 MINUTES episode they referenced sovereigns as ignoring “requirements” such as Social Security Numbers and Drivers Licenses. But honestly these things are only requirements for those who apply for benefits from the State. Am I required to apply for and take benefits? NO! Is this really “the land of the free?”
But here are the requirements of our Creator: 2Co 6:14 “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers:” Even more specific to Social Security and other insurance schemes: Pro 1:10 “My son, if unbelievers entice thee, consent thou not. If they say, Come with us, … Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse: My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path:” …There is plenty more, but perhaps the strongest warning of all: Rev 14:9-10 “If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive its mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God.”
I wouldn’t have a problem with getting a “Drivers License” to travel (even though I am not a “Driver”) if they did not require me to apply for a Social Security Number (breaking GOD’s Law by voluntarily participating in Socialism) in order to qualify for it. No representative Government of men has the right to do that which is unlawful for the individual to do. When the Government takes from one man (steals) to give to another man (receiving stolen property) they all participate in theft which is against God’s Law. Even worse it is when they take one mans money to pay for murder by abortion and nation building by genocide against the conscience of the man who falsely believes he is required to contribute.
Here is a clue for all those who would like to be free from this breech of conscience: any time you have to sign your name to anything, take notice that you are volunteering! God has given us a way out, His word says, “if thou mayest be made free, use it rather” One of my most useful memory verses takes on new meaning with this application: 1Co 10:13 “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape,”
What is that way of escape? Fear GOD, Repent and Keep His Commandments, the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. Come out of her my people, and be not partakers with her… We are called to be in the world but not of it! Cross the Border into the Kingdom of Heaven where His Law reigns supreme. Only then will you walk among the Sovereigns, the Kings and Priests that He calls us to be. Is it time yet for good people to wake up and withdraw from the emerging Socialist State?
Rev 5:10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
