Posted on 01/07/2011 6:49:34 AM PST by hawkins
On September 17, 1787, the United States Constitution was adopted in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, by representatives of the people. It was established upon the blood of many men and women who gave their lives so America would stand on its own laws with authority. Its creation came almost 11 years after the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. In the first two sentences of the Declaration of Independence, the founders acknowledged that the Creator of all, God, was where the authority inhered to form the United States Constitution. Since that time many a citizen has pledged their loyalty and given their blood to maintain what was established.
On January 6, 2011, the 112th House of Representatives became the first to read the full constitution as they were gathered (though they had to go back and read two pages that had been stuck together). This comes at a time when men and women are recognizing the failure of their representatives to uphold the constitution for which they had taken oaths to uphold. Remembering the authority for the document comes from God, the failure of previous representatives is just another example of man turning from God to serve their own interests.
This is certainly not the first time an agreement established in blood with the authority of God has been violated. The people of Israel formed as a nation by the deliverance of God were given the Law of Moses with the Authority of God. As part of that law, the blood of calves and goats was needed for its inauguration (Hebrews 9:18-20). It did not take long for that people to disregard the law and disobey it. It did not take long for its keepers, the priests, to falter in their duties. Hundreds of years later, in a historic gathering, the priest Ezra would take the law before the people again and read it in their presence (Nehemiah 8). The people rededicated themselves to upholding the law (Numbers 10) and acknowledged their past failures in doing. They realized they had served themselves and not God.
The people had been told there would come a day when a new agreement would be established. It would not just be for the Israelites, but for the entire world. That agreement was to come with Jesus Christ. Indeed it did. He gave his life being crucified upon a cross. His blood inaugurated a new covenant (Hebrews 7:22, 8:6-7, 9:11-16, 10:19-20). The blood which was shed was done so in love and by the authority of God (John 3:16). The entrance of people under the new agreement came on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2). On that day, men heard the words of the agreement and put themselves under allegiance to it. Yet, sadly, as before, men have forsaken their oaths and allegiance so that they may serve their own interests.
The 112th House of Representative provided a good example of rededication on January 6, 2011. They recognized there was something greater than themselves. They declared repentance, a changing from what had been done before, and a return to what should be done. It is hoped they stand strong in their declaration, if not, there will be undesirable consequences. For those who have declared allegiance to Christ, yet have forsaken the agreement established by His blood, it is also time to return to dedication (Acts 17:30). No longer live a life based on personal desires, but live the life God has established for all. Good laws followed result in a multitude of blessings. Good laws ignored lead man to dishonesty, self-interest, and abuse of others. Gods law is the perfect law. Upholding it and obeying will only result in blessing to those in allegiance to it (James 1:25). Disregarding it will lead to destruction (2 Thessalonians 1:6-10).
For America to ignore its constitution is the same as rejecting it. If its citizens do so, the result is making worthless the blood which was shed to give freedom to the citizens of America. Such a loss holds a parallel to those who would ignore the will of God. Christ gave his life so that man might experience freedom. Casting that sacrifice aside would make what he has given worthless. His death gave liberty to all those who would hold strong their allegiance to him. Rejecting the Covenant of Christ and the Constitution of the United States are great atrocities. If the importance of these agreements created by blood can be fathomed, do not forsake God or country.
SAVING THE COUNTRY FROM THE GOVERNMENT
The expurgated version of the Constitution of September 17, 1787 with amendments was read today in the United States House of Representatives, reportedly for the first time. Predictably, Congressmen and women did not read from the source recommended to serious Students of the Organic Laws of the United States of America. The recommended source is Volume One of the United States Code prepared and published under authority of Title 2, U.S. Code, Section 285b, by the Office of the Law Revision Counsel of the House of Representatives.
The 212th Congress does not want you to know what I have been teaching in these Posts for more than two years. The Constitution of September 17, 1787 is the fourth Organic Law and the three Organic Laws that precede it limit the Constitution of September 17, 1787 and the Constitution of the United States to the territory and other property owned by the United States of America. The Preamble says it all. The people of the United States do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America and not for themselves and their posterity.
The only way to save this country from a renegade Congress is to become a Student of the Organic Laws of the United States of America and the limited government produced by those laws. The Congress and the rest of government refuse to recognize the limitations the Organic Laws, so you have to become an Organic Laws whistleblower. Volume One of the United States Code is all the evidence you will need, so:
First, go Online to the United States Government Printing Office Bookstore, and order Volume One of the United States Code. The book costs $103, but it is worth every cent.
Second, start reading every Post and dont stop until you have read them all.
Third, ask for copies of the Constitution of the United States I had printed at my own expense. These Constitutions are copies of the version published by the Commission on the Bicentennial of the United States Constitution. You must provide a shipping label and postage or donation based on 3 ounces for each Constitution you want at P.O. Box 13295, Torrance, CA 90503.
Fourth, ask me at firstname.lastname@example.org to put you on my e-mail list.
Fifth, ask for the Organic Laws of the United States of America in word searchable form.
Sixth, consider becoming one of my private Students.

The first two sentences of the Declaration of Independence.
When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.
The Contitution of the United States is the foundational document that defines the just power of government, and as a Postive Grant of Powers, limits the powers of government to only those defined. Whatever your theory concerning “organic law” nothing changes the written documents except contitutional amendments and only amendments to a certain extent.
