No Father upon the Earth
And call no man your father upon
the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. Matthew 23:9
Have we not all one father?
No one is more sovereign than the Creator of Mankind. How does God
the Father appoint the ruling powers over men so that they may
exercise authority? To understand the present it is often required to
look into the past. Man was not given dominion over other men by God.
Men cannot acquire righteous dominion by force. Yet, by consent we
may give ourselves into subjection.
Is verbal consent the only way we may be subjected to exercising
authority? If we take from or damage others we may incur an
obligation to make amends. If we refuse to pay for what we have
damaged or taken it is reasonable to compel recompense.
Besides these two reasonable ways of creating a subjecting
authority over our person there is still another system clearly
sanctioned and even promoted by God the Father in Heaven.
Have we not all one father?
hath not one God created us? why do we deal treacherously every man
against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers?
The ana ittishu was the ancient equivalent of the modern words
and phrases, expressing the Law and part of an ancient code
preserving the Sumerian Family Laws. Not only is the first government
based on the family and ordained by God but all government is based
on the precepts of what a family is or should be according to these
“The family is also the
first government in the life of the child, with the father as the
God-ordained head of the household and his government under God as
the child’s basic government.”
In the great domestic relationship of Husband and Wife, the
Natural Law and its Creator provide a Father and Mother to have and
to hold dominion and custody of their children and heirs. The family
was God’s sanctioned government.
In the law of the Latins, the word potestas signifies
generally a power or authority by which we do anything. Patria
Potestas signifies the authority which a father had over the
persons of his children, grandchildren, and other descendants. There
was an almost absolute power over the children by the Father as there
also is at Common Law. This was not based on ownership as a slave
but as a member of the Familia in which the status of the
Father would effect the status of the son. An act by which the patria
potestas was terminated is called emancipatio or
The family was and is a political unit. Within the manu
of the family neither the Wife nor the Husband could sue each other
for they are counted as one person, one body.
Therefore shall a man leave
his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they
shall be one flesh. Genesis 2:24
The child is bound within the manu of the family. The manus
is a Latin word for the power of the pater familias over his
wife and his sons’ wives. Even in its prior history manu as a Sanskrit word meant the primordial Father of the human race and
sovereign of the earth. These concepts fundamentally reach into the
antiquity of man’s history and are only supplanted by the
twisted thoughts of an usurping substitute for God’s plan.
Some might think it oppressive that a patriarch would have such
power and authority within his given family, but is it any more
desirable to be oppressed by tribal or national groups? Governments
that eat out the substance of men in peace and march millions of
minions to murderous deaths in war cannot be a superior or benevolent
master to that of our natural parents.
God dispersed dominion among the fathers of mankind. Even with
Jesus he established no office of father to rule man in mass. A child
is within that power until the Father releases him or is released
from life itself. There is no right of usurpation by any.
child is incapable, in his private rights, of any power or dominion;
in every other respect he is capable of legal rights."
The child has a capacity for acquiring legal rights. He could acquire
by contract, for instance; but everything that he acquires, is
acquired for his father. With out emancipation the child was
not free of his father’s power and was also not sui juris.
In Latin the words are from sui meaning of one's own and juris,
the genitive of jus, meaning right or law. Sui Juris is one
who is capable of managing one's own affairs. Only the
patriarch of a family is sui juris. The first civil
governments based their civil powers on the law of the family. The
individual citizen would be able to acquire legal rights by contract
but would not be sui juris.
In Roman Law Caesar's rights to authority or dominion over subject
citizenry as emperor stemmed from his position as the "vicarious
pater" or substitute father. The Emperor as father of the
country was one of the few men who was sui juris as that system
devolved into its centralized imperial position.
The authority of the imperium of Rome was at least twofold.
Originally it (merum) was only outside the wall or
jurisdiction and conferred by a lex curiata and came from the
power of the sword to turn the life of wicked men.
This is the military or police power of each man. Imperium within the
walls (mixtum) was incident to jurisdiction (jurisdictio) established
by application, contract and nexus. In time they both merged.
The office of imperium was vested by the people in the
Imperator, which means commander in chief. As this
office expanded during civil conflicts and fear, it merged with the
office of Apotheos, which was literally the appointor of gods.
These gods were simply the magistratus or judex
imperium. They were court judges and those administering the
courts throughout the ordered world of the Pax Romana. The same is
true of government today.
In that world at the time of the Roman Empire, as in America
today, there was a dual system of citizenship [see Citizen vs.
Citizen]. Many men sought and seek emancipation from the rule of the
imperium but were and are thwarted by a failure to understand the
universal authority of the "vicarious pater". The
modern civil powers are no different. In Roman and American history
the family decayed and with it a dissipation of freedom.
The lawful effect of emancipation was to make the emancipated
person become sui juris. Within God’s construction of the
family, Husband and Wife were one and they held the imperium.
This right and responsibility was too sacred to be manumitted with
casual abandonment. A legal process was devised involving a patron or
civil patronus, a nation’s Father. Cain, Nimrod, and Caesar
wished to be free of God’s family plan or control it for
"The patria potestas could not be dissolved immediately by
manumissio (manumission), because the patria potestas must be viewed
as an imperium, and not as a right of property like the power of a
master over his slave.”
Confirmation of this manumission required a patron and was
clothed in a form of a mancipatio (the release of the child)
by pledging the son or daughter in three separate events. An analogous relation
was formed between the patron and potentially freed individual,
creating a nexus.
Rome was heavily populated with domestic servants and slaves. The
imperium of Rome began granting greater and greater protections,
privilege and gratuities. This act of manumission established the
relation called patronus. This Patronus created a
relation between manumissor and slave, which was also
comparable to father and son. The patron of these manumissions of both
sons and slaves was consolidated in the new world order of Rome.
The Real Destroyers
These two overlapping processes brought about a vast consolidation
of power, wealth and control. By the law of the Twelve Tables of
Rome, which were the constitutional foundation of their government, if a freedman died intestate, without sui heredes, the patronus
was the heir. This meant the property would go back to the Father or civil substitute father if they died with out an heir. This right was viewed as a right of Agnation
which created an ever increasing corporation sole of power and
possession within the unholy Roman empire.
The manumitted slave was cleverly
called Libertus and he owed more than respect and gratitude to
his patron. The patron might punish him with a summary judgment
for neglecting his duties. He appeared to be free but was in fact a subject citizen under
his substitute father.
During the process of manumission of a son or daughter the patron
could gain a sovereign position of influence and power and even
become the heir to the corporeal and incorporeal hereditaments of the
son or daughter being manumitted.
While they promise them
liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom
a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage. 2
If an individual being emancipated required a tutor or curator,
the rights which would have belonged to the father, if he had not
emancipated the child, were secured to the patron as a kind of
patronal right and the status of sui juris is not completed.
It was upon these precepts of law that the Emperator/Apotheos of Rome
forged its greatest power over the people.
When thou sittest to eat with
a ruler, consider diligently what [is] before thee: And put a knife
to thy throat, if thou be a man given to appetite. Be not desirous of
his dainties: for they are deceitful meat. Proverbs 23:1, 3
"The real destroyers of
the liberties of the people is he who spreads among them bounties,
donations and benefits." Plutarch.
And David saith, Let their
table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumblingblock, and a
recompence unto them: Romans 11:9
“count children as the best crop of the
"If we want better people
to make a better world, then we will have to begin where people are
made --- in the family."
The Emperor Augustus introduced the practice of effecting
emancipation by a rescript, when the parties were not present.
Justinian enacted that the emancipation could be effected before a
magistrate. But Justinian carried the process a step further.
It was even a part of Roman Law that a woman could do nothing
"sine auctore," that is without a tutor to give to her acts
a complete legal character.
Eventually women were emancipated from the coverture of their
families into the coverture of the Imperium State. Today, the
emancipation of women has removed them from the homes where all their
labor went to the benefit of the family into a world where 40 to 50
percent of their labor is now directly removed from their family by the
State for its own filtered purposes.
The Romans and many other civilizations that came before and after them knew that
the law of the family was so important that it could not be
terminated lightly. The matter was so serious and fundamental and
knowlegable Fathers always stipulated for a remancipation from the
patron called a pactum fiduciae, an agreement of trust.
Emancipation from one’s natural father into the hands of the
state or substitute father is often analogous to jumping from
the frying pan into the fire. Like the prodigal son the individual
finds that they are eventually worse off than anything they had
Accept NO Substitute
The substituting of God’s plan and family for the plans and
will of men corrupts the natural benefits of the family structure and
seduces the individual into an unnatural state or status.
Those who are observant see an increase in the
infringement and even termination of parental rights by modern courts.
Where do modern courts obtain power to rule over the family? God gives children to their parents. Who has more primal right than those who gave the child life? Children take their
first step of emancipation from the manu of their families, and
protestas of their Father with
of the state birth certification.
Honour thy father and thy
mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy
God giveth thee. Ex 20:12
The word honour above is from the Hebrew dbk
The first time the word is used in the Bible was in reference to
Abraham and is translated 'rich'. Abram had already expatriated from
his Father Terah who was ruling in the city state called Haran.
And Abram [was] very rich
in cattle, in silver, and in gold. Ge 13:2
We often imagine that this word honour refers to merely
turning off the TV, going to bed on time or taking out the garbage.
What is this obligation to care for our parents and the family?
"Excise (tribute), in its
origin, is the patrimonial right of emperors and kings."
Tribute is, "A sum of money paid by an inferior sovereign or
state to a superior potentate, to secure the friendship or protection
of the latter.”
The subject of "Patronus" is a vast and interesting
subject as a contributing source to understanding the origins of
tithes and taxes. "Patronus, Roman civil law. This word is a
modification of the Latin word pater, father; a denomination
applied by Romulus to the first, senators of Rome, and which they
always afterwards bore. Romulus at first appointed a hundred of
The principles of Patronus are still quoted in countless
cases involving everything from trusts to postliminy. But it
is best dealt with in another place. It is only important to mention
here because it is the principle and origin upon which a proper and
comprehensive subjective citizenship is based.
The Benefit of Life
Since, a natural father gives the benefit of life to his child
when the child is in the womb, so also it is important in the scheme
of the system of things that the substitute father grants
benefits to the individual while he is still in the womb.
"He who is in the womb
is considered as born, whenever his benefit is concerned."
The Sheppard-Towner Maternity Act was "for the promotion, the
welfare and hygiene of maternity and infancy and for other purposes,"
The Senate passed it with a vote of 63 to 7, and by the House with a
vote of 279 to 39, and was finally signed by the president and became
law on Nov. 23, 1921. The act provided for the current fiscal year
(1922) $10,000 for each state accepting the provisions of the act,
and the additional sum of $1,000,000.
The bill was a direct outgrowth of a nine
year study made by the "Federal Children's Bureau." Note
the Bureau was not the federal bureau for children but the bureau of
the federal children. This act and the acceptance of its benefits by
the states created the "United States birth registration area."
Why does the United States need to register your birth? Because
the United States acts as Rome. It sits in the usurped position of
your Father and demands your faithful obedience.
Did the federal government have the right
to impose such legislation on the States? In 1923, it was argued by
Mr. Alexander Lincoln, Assistant Attorney General of Massachusetts,
"The act is unconstitutional. It purports to vest in agencies of
the Federal Government powers which are almost wholly undefined, in
matters relating to maternity and infancy, and to authorize
appropriations of federal funds for the purposes of the act."
The complaint went on to state that, "The act is invalid because
it assumes powers not granted to Congress and usurps the local police
power." "The act is not made valid by the circumstance that
federal powers are to be exercised only with respect to those States
which accept the act, for Congress cannot assume, and state
legislatures cannot yield, the powers reserved to the States by the
Constitution. The act is invalid because it imposes on each State an
illegal option either to yield a part of its powers reserved by the
Tenth Amendment or to give up its share of appropriations under the
In the final analysis the Act was an offer from one corporate
entity to others for the purpose of providing an avenue for the
individual citizen of America to register as a subject of the State
and therefore a citizen of the Federal corporate State, the superior
sovereign agent, called the United States. The federal government
would assume the position of Patron as the natural fathers emancipate
their children from God’s institution, the family, into the
hands of man made institutions and the substitute father.
The Substitute Father
The vicarious patri or substitute
father becomes the patronus of the infant citizen according to
the law of Parens Patriae, Obey the Father. Even the United
States Codes verify this parental relationship using the Latin in
their own US codes.
Once you are registered as a child of the State there are many
benefits and paths open to you. The state stands in the position of
patron and supplies both tutor and curator for the child. The patron
never entirely releases the child to the status of sui juris as long
as they depend upon the gracious benefits of the State.
Without the exercise of rugged individualism that comes from an

Rome had a vast system of welfare. Those who registered with Rome
and its increasing socialist state were eligible for free bread. Rome
imported 500,000,000 bushels of this grain each year from Egypt
alone. There was a great deal of free entertainment provided and a
general promise of social security to those who chose to be a part of
the offered system of Corban.

The Latin word pater means father. As we
have seen the word was used as a title of the Emperor and before him
the pro council was referred to as the father of the senate and
therefore the Empire. Pater or patri was also an address in reference
to the Senators of Rome. The Roman's developed an elected congress to
introduce the proposed bills for the enfranchised citizenry who were
subject to the statutes of men. This congress was called patres
consritpi, the conscripted fathers [see Citizen vs.
We can assume that the people of the Roman Empire when they heard
the word pater thought of one of several ideas. Either they were
talking about their genetic father and their Creator Father in
heaven, or their substitute fathers in Rome.
Jesus said, “And call
no [man] your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is
in heaven.” (Mtt. 23:9)
To make such a statement was a shock to those who thought man's
governments and the Roman political and judicial system, with its
peace and commerce, was good for society and the business of men.
This would be like saying call no man on earth president or senator
In that Greek text of Matthew we find the word Pater
meaning father in the Latin. When Jesus said his kingdom was not of
this world he did not use the Greek word for earth or planet or
inhabited places or age that are also translated into world. The word

“meaning a harmonious arrangement or constitution, order,

call no man father was a jurisdictional statement. To be baptized was
a jurisdictional event of allegiance. To worship is an act of homage
to a lord or King. Jesus did not preach the religion of heaven but
Entering the Treasury
It had always been an option for the people to apply to the State
for an enfranchised citizenship. Marcus Aurelius wanted no child to
be left behind. He required by law that everyone must register the
birth of their children with the Secretary of Treasury or Provincial
Registrars within 30 days.
The Christians could not. Such registration would be an
application to the Father of the Roman State and would be turning
from Christ’s command. The State became the “In Loco
Parentis” which in the Latin,
means “in the place of a parent” which is a turning away
from the Natural Family instituted by God.
When Christians had needs they went to Christians and their
charitable altars tended by Stephen, Philip and Prochorus,
not the altars of Rome. They knew the Lord hated the Nicolatians and
would not apply to the Father of Rome nor its systems of Qurban. The
benefits of that gentile government were the result of the peoples
sacrifice to the gods of the Roman State, the Apo Theos of Rome.
Christians would not apply to that Father and god.
In Gibbon’s Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, he praised
“the union and discipline of the Christian republic.” He
also pointed out that “it gradually formed an independent and
increasing state in the heart of the Roman Empire.”
The early Christian community was a republic that was recognized by
Rome through the proclamation nailed to the cross by order of the
Proconsul of Rome, Pontius Pilate.

our souls and hearts as we apply to the Father in Heaven according to
His plan of faith, hope, charity and love.
