WHY WOULD GOD PUNISH SOMEONE
FOR GETTING A SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER?
Allow me to describe this Lordship concept with several different terms: "mastership," "ruler," "sovereign," "protector," "boss," "your chain of command." You are under a government whether you like it or not, but only one government. You cannot serve two masters. Christ said "he that is not with me is against me" (Luke 11:23, Matt 12:30).
Satan has a counterfeit authority for you to obey. You must choose which chain of command you are in. Satan's counterfeit is very difficult to discern.
A closer look at translations would help explain this "Lordship" concept. By reading the English translations, you cannot tell if the word: `Lord' refers to the Almighty or to a human boss. The word "LORD" is translated from several different words:
The reference numbers are from Strong's Concordance.
In the Greek New Testament, the word "LORD" is translated from:
Example: Christ said that you cannot serve two Lords (G2962 kurios in both Luke 16:13 and Matt 6:24). You cannot serve both God and mammon (mammon = G3126 wealth personified or greed).
The Greek word for "God" is "Theos," which means "a magistrate." In Roman days, you would address a Judge as a God. "Emperors" were referred to as "Apo Theos," creator of gods. This lordship continued down through the centuries with the kings claiming divine authority to rule. "Feudal liege lords" retained authority over their subjects. Even today, the word "landlord" retains the "lord" suffix. In Canada today, Judges are still addressed as "Your Worshipfullness." In Court, your Plea is still called a "prayer." The painting on the ceiling of your Capitol dome is titled "Apotheos of George Wahsington." He was the creator of your Judge gods.
Does your "first citizen" still claim to have god powers? On May 14, 1998, President Clinton released Executive Order Number 13083 entitled "Federalism." The presidency claims "a Federal Government of supreme ... powers." And as for U.S. citizens, Federal law has the power "... to define the moral, political, and legal character of their lives."
Yes. Your god defines every moral, political, and legal character of your life. The Roman Civil Law of today is a mirror image of the iron Beast that trampled down the whole earth and broke it to pieces (as in Dan 7:23). Could this mirror image be the image of the Beast brought to life in Revelation 13:15? Do they demand worship? Do they speak blasphemy? The answers seem so obvious to me; I don't understand why others cannot see this.
Whom do you serve? Who takes care of you? Who's chain of command are you in? Protection draws subjection. Do you acknowledge that Jesus has been given all authority in heaven and earth? It is His will that you must obey, and you will be judged on the judgement day according to His will, not man's will. Masters (Lords) take care of their subordinates. If God is your Lord (and not the state), then He will provide for you, not the state. He will (perhaps through his church continuing "the perfect law of liberty") take care of widows and orphans (James 1:25,27). He will take care of the handicapped. He will (perhaps through the family, 1st Tim 5:8, or a church) take care of the elderly, not the state god. His church encourages the unemployed "to work with your hands ... so that you will not be dependent on anybody." (1st Thessalonians 4:12 (NIV)).
Lords grant permission. Whomever you ask for permission to do something is your lord. Permission to get married, permission to buy medications, permission to travel, and of course, the very reason you got a number in the first place - permission to sell your labor. Later on, I will show you that you granted the Power of Attorney to anyone who you allowed to manage your affairs because it can be presumed that you cannot manage yourself.
You have created a host of "Lords" to regulate your life, be your savior, accept your worship, and lord over you - Shame.
Judges 10:14 (KJV) "Go and cry unto the gods which ye have chosen;
let them deliver you in the time of your tribulation."
Another definition that must be understood is the word "name," which means "authority."
If you were to say the phrase "stop in the name of the law" you are saying: "Stop; by the authority of the law." If you sign your name, this signature is your authority and has legal consequences. Agents act in the name (= authority) of their principal. Examples: "whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved" in Acts 2:21 and Romans 10:13 both use the Greek "onoma" (G3686) which means "authority." Christ said "blessed is he that comes in the name ("onoma" = authority) of the Lord." If you were to read: "Mark of the beast," OR "the name of the beast," OR "the number of his name" in Rev 13:17, then you would be reading three alternatives invoking the authority (Greek "onoma") of the Beast. More literally translated: The mark of the beast, or the authority of the beast or the number of its authority. Again: Name = Authority. Taking God's name in vain, means taking God's authority in vain. "Vain" means "devoid of worth." God's name (onoma) will be put upon (epi) your forehead. Revelation 7:3 and 20:4. As Job said: "Blessed be the name of the Lord." The ten-horned first Beast that must be worshiped in order to get the Mark has the name (onoma) of blasphemy on its heads.
Now that you know what "name" means: Is there a chance that you buy and sell with a Mark (ID Card) of a Beast, or the authority of the Beast, or the number of ("of" = created by) its authority?
Your authority to exist does not come from government. Not from an identification
card, not from a birth certificate. Why then, do police ask for ID? Officials
of the government get their authority to exist from government. Police
are seeking proof that you are under their authority. If you have accepted
the office of "PERSON" (see my Appendix
D), then you are within their government, subject to their law enforcement
officer. If the law says so, you may even be required to carry government
Both in the Old Testament Hebrew, and the New Testament Greek, the verb "Worship" refers to the assuming of a body position such as bowing down, crouching, or facing.
The U.S. Supreme Court confirmed, in Board of Education v. Barnette, 319 US 624, that a "Salute" is the assuming of a physical position.
A Salute (which is a form of worship) is initiated by the inferior toward the superior. Whom do you worship - the Lord, or the state god? To whom do you raise your right hand in Court? At the beginning of the worship service, to whom do you worship when the bailiff commands: "All Rise?" William Tell understood enough to refuse to Salute the Judge. Daniel, in Chapter 3, understood enough to refuse to worship the civil authority.
How can anyone swear to tell the whole truth, which is impossible? Christ in Matt 5:37 said that your "yes" should be yes, and your "no," no, and any testimony more than a "yes" or "no" answer is evil.
How can anyone swear to tell nothing but the truth? We know that every
man is a liar (Romans 3:4).
Along the same line as "worship," "Oaths" are forbidden by Hebrews 6:16, Matthew 5:33-34, and James 5:12.
"Oaths" (being a form of worship) are only offered by the inferior toward the superior, per Hebrews 6:16. A "Salute" (such as raising your right hand when being sworn into a public office) is "worship" and is only offered by the inferior toward the superior. You won't understand this yet, but your elected servants must take an Oath of Office to acknowledge their subordinate position. They are not AUTHORITIES, they are subordinates.
Although the Application for a Social Security number no longer has a printed perjury oath above the signature, it has the legal presumption and is equivalent to an oath because there is a punishment associated with false swearing. You are presumed to know this law. See Appendix E.
Now to answer the question as to why God would punish someone for getting a number. Since you are presumed to have the 10 Commandments in your forehead and on your right hand; Any of these Commandments (laws) would suffice:
Acknowledging the name (authority) of false saviors, worshiping (taking oaths to or saluting) false gods, covetousness, swearing, taking God's authority in vain, serving graven images, or committing the theft of socialism.
And that's just from the 10 Commandments. My list didn't even include falsifying the Application Form, or firstfruits offering (withholding) to fund abominations, or creating a host of bureaucrats ("benefactors," Luke 22:25) to rule over you and creating Judges ("elohiym") who demand worship.
YES, GETTING A SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER IS SLAPPING GOD'S FACE. HOW CAN YOU INSIST THESE SINS WILL GO UNPUNISHED? (And yes, I confess. I did slap God's face. When I was 16 years old, I was told to get an Social Security Card in order to qualify for employment. I dutifully bowed down to their mighty god.)
In Revelation 14:9-11-- a divine messenger tells us that those who receive the Mark are damned. The very next verse contrasts those who are damned with those who kept the Commandments. Revelation 14:12 (KJV) "Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus." Apparently, those who keep the Commandments will know enough to avoid deception.
Adam and Eve had a duty to avoid deception. They, and you too, had to
suffer the consequences of falling for deception. Christ told his disciples
to "take heed that no man deceive you." We too, can avoid deception
by obeying the Commandments. If we are deceived, then we will learn the
hard way that we should have obeyed.
