Voice of the Kingfisher speaks out …from a different perspective

As a judge of the Supreme Court, it is not about being right; it is about doing right. The Constitutions of America established a totally different judicial system from the rest of the world. By Law, God is the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, and testimony or witness is given on oaths taken in His name, that is to say, until men tried to add to or take away from His Law.
The Law of God was given to Moses who, as God’s foremost prophet until Jesus, was His spokesperson, having the job, which, today, we might describe as that of the Presidential Press Secretary required to say exactly what the President would say if present. In such a manner, Moses spoke the words God would speak, if He were standing before the people. He conveyed words of right living and of future encouragement in the blessing of keeping the Law, and the resulting judgment of the curse for not keeping it. The Law applied on the national scale, as well as on the individual scale.
When the burden of judging the people became too great for Moses, he set up the first judicial system extending from God above, down to Moses, and from him to the Supreme Court, and from there, on down the line to the lower courts. The Law was made in accordance with God’s Word, which He gave to Moses. Such a judicial system functions in accordance with prayer and the dictates of Scripture as given by the Holy Spirit of God, if judgments are to be in righteousness, fairness and for the good of the people. God does nothing that is not for the good of mankind.
So, on the counsel of his father-in-law, Jethro, our judicial system was established by Moses some 3400 years ago.
“Listen now to my voice; I will give you counsel, and God will be with you: Stand before God for the people, so that you may bring the difficulties to God. And you shall teach them the statutes and the laws, and show them the way in which they must walk and the work they must do.
Moreover you shall select from all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them to be rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens. And let them judge the people at all times. Then it will be that every great matter they shall bring to you, but every small matter they themselves shall judge. So it will be easier for you, for they will bear the burden with you. If you do this thing, and God so commands you, then you will be able to endure, and all this people will also go to their place in peace.”
So Moses heeded the voice of his father-in-law and did all that he had said. And Moses chose able men out of all Israel, and made them heads over the people: rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens. So they judged the people at all times; the hard cases they brought to Moses, but they judged every small case themselves (Exodus 18:19-26).
This set the standard for the type of judges to be chosen, which, up to this day, has been applied in America. Moses was to select able men from all the people, such as those who feared God and were men of truth above all else. Since truth comes only from the Scriptures, these men would need to know Scripture as well as the Law. They must hate covetousness, which surfaces as thievery and the injustice of taking that which belongs rightfully to another.
And how is this working presently in the courts? The progressive liberals hate these standards, and liberal governments and judges, today, believe they have the right to tamper with the freedom and rights of the individual. Governments avoid the work-ethic standard of rewards for work done. Big governments want to be big brother, collecting as much of the proceeds as possible and then re-distributing the wealth. The illegals benefit in every way, coveting that which is not theirs in order to live on handouts from the legals. The law should be all about legalism and not about illegalism. The more the illegal is rewarded, the more power is given to the big brother concept of the law. This is about as far away from God’s plan, as given to Moses, that it can get.
As for the witnesses, the voice of one was insufficient to witness against another; it would require two or three witnesses to confirm an evil doing. False testimony constituted an infraction of the law, open to judgment along with the ensuing condemnation. To this day, the law should apply equally to all citizens alike. No one is above the law, although progressive, liberal governments act on the basis that they belong to a privileged group, which is above the law of the land.
“If a false witness rises against any man to testify against him of wrongdoing, then both men in the controversy shall stand before the Lord, before the priests and the judges who serve in those days. And the judges shall make diligent inquiry, and indeed, if the witness is a false witness, who has testified falsely against his brother, then you shall do to him as he thought to have done to his brother; so you shall put away the evil person from among you.
And those who remain shall hear and fear, and hereafter they shall not again commit such evil among you. Your eye shall not pity; but life shall be for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot (Deuteronomy 19:16-21).”
Are the crimes of presidents and attorney-generals not all the worse, as elected members of society who have taken sworn oaths to uphold the law? How about those screened members of government employees who belong to the IRS? Are they free from the judgment of the law, able to serve justice by issuing apologies for wrongdoing and crime and then have society pay them to continue in their criminal acts?
There is a growing schism, which exists between progressive, liberal governments and the keeping of the law. Such governments pad the bench of the Supreme Court with progressive, liberal judges who have no respect for the supremacy of God and care even less about the Law, which Moses established over 3400 years ago. It has not only worked well all these many years later, but has been the only true justice this world has ever known.
Justice in America was the envy of enslaved people all over the world – those who lived in religious/police/states, where there is no real freedom or protection like that found only in a just, judicial system. Heads have been lopped off and men crucified at the whim of unjust and immoral rulers.
As America moves away from the Law of Moses, she is reinventing the judicial system, to take it in line with the government move toward totalitarianism and the injustice of the religious/police/states of the rest of the world. Freedoms are quickly being lost, while liberty, such a treasured, hard-fought-for commodity given to us by our forefathers, slips away and disappears, to be gone forever. It is an absolute insult to our ancestors who gave their lives in wars, so that the godly inheritance, delivered by them to their children, would remain for them, as a jewel of God’s creation.
How dare our Canadian government allow such a travesty of the trust they placed in us, by allowing the propaganda of network programming to include such junk as Little Mosque on the Prairie! Muslims shared no part in the pioneering of this land; if they had, there would be no justice at all in this country. It is a disgrace to the nation to even consider Shariah law as being real law; it is merely a list of religious injustices, which allow for the killing of innocent people called women, children and infidels.
Wake up America! Your judicial system has become corrupted. It is time to clean up the bench, remove the corruption and look back to the justice of Moses; it will never be equaled by any other judicial system. The truth of the matter is that there is no other justice. There are merely the rules of kings and dictators, which give them license to take away the freedom and liberties that only God can provide.
Governments always covet that for which man labors; so progressive liberals set themselves up as kings, tax the poor into utter poverty while the elite, ruling class grows proportionately richer to live a rich and lavish lifestyle on the backs of the laboring poor. Sadly, the enslaved poor come to believe that they need the handouts of their enslaving masters, that which had been rightfully theirs in the first place.
And so the illegals pour into the land, with the vicious circle beginning all over again. Nothing is new under the sun! “Vanity of vanities,” says the Preacher, “all is vanity (Ecclesiastes 12:8).” “Just give me some food stamps and I’ll be content.” And back to serfdom the nation goes.
