Feast of Christ the King - Last Sunday in October

On October 30. 2011, The last Sunday in October, about 3 years before I new anything about Anna Von Reitz, I wrote the following on the Feast of Christ the King.   Paul Stramer

Most of the founders of our country were keen to say that our country was founded on Christian principles, and our form of government would work for no other people than a Christian people.


The saying "No King but Jesus" was popular then as it is in some circles now.
Today is celebrated in the Catholic Church the idea that Jesus is the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords" which is expressed in different words today. Today it might be said that Jesus should be the King over all government agents, employees, and office holders, and that if He isn't held as such by those people our country is doomed and judged to fall into oblivion, since the form of government we have (Constitutional Republic) will work for no other people.

Some years ago I shocked a group of patriots at a dinner in Kalispell by making the statement that my whole purpose in being a patriot was to restore the Kingship of Jesus over our country. That form of government could be expressed as a "Constitutional Monarchy by the King of Kings, Jesus Christ". Of course that would not change our form of government, in corporal terms, one bit, but it would restore the ideas of the founders and infuse reality and truth into the people who have sworn to uphold and protect and defend the US Constitution, which I believe was somwhat Divinely Inspired.

How would restoring the Kingship of Jesus effect our country. Who is this King?  Jesus is the second person of the Blessed Trinity, The Word of God Made Man. In other words Jesus is 'Truth Personified'. He is God, along with the Father and the Holy Spirit. Co-equal with them, but posessing a second nature, the nature of Man. He has both the nature of God, and the nature of man in one person. That is the miracle. He is the Christ of the Lord, and the Lord of Lords, meaning that from His role as Redeemer, and Saviour, and first born from the dead he has the supremacy in all things, in all creation, and by Him and His Sacrifice the door to heaven has been opened and we all have a chance to be saved.  
You might ask then, like the jews asked, why didn't he stay and rule in bodily form? (restore the kingdom of Isreal)  The fact is that he DID restore His Kindgom, but His Kingdom, as He told Pontius Pilate, is NOT of this world.
So how would His Kingdom be restored inside our government? 
By giving people in government an example of true Christian Charity, and offering them a way OUT of their dilemma. Most people connected with government have taken an Oath to the same God to uphold, defend, and protect the US Constitution. All they need to do to restore the Kingship of Christ in their lives is to keep that oath. What a change that would make in our country. If people in government will just start keeping their oath, they will redeem themselves in God's eyes, while making a very positive change for the better in all the duties of their own office or position. 
Restoring the Kingship of Jesus Christ by keeping their oath would completely restore our country in just a few months, and perhaps change entirely the judgement of God in our regard.  Remember when Jona preached in Ninive and the King commanded that all should restore justice and do pennance. God had mercy on their city, like he can have mercy on our country if we just keep our Oath to Him.

Help me now to Celebrate the Kingship of Jesus Christ as Lord of Lords, and King of Kings, and pray with me the prayers of the Mass for his feast.

THE FEAST OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, KING, (Last Sunday in October)
Double feast of the First Class

Introit, Apoc. 5, 12; 1, 6
The Lamb that was slain is worthy to receive power, and divinity, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, To Him be glory and empire for ever and ever. Ps 71,1. Give to the King Thy judgment, O God; and to the King's Son Thy justice. Glory be to the Father and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, World without end, Amen.

Prayer;
Almighty and eternal God, Who hast wished to restore all things through Thy beloved Son, the King of the universe, graciously grant that all the familes of the Gentiles separated by the wound of sin, may be subjected to His most loving dominion, Who with Thee liveth and reignest, in the Unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end, Amen.

Epistle Col. 1, 12-20

Bretheren, we give thanks to God the Father, Who hath made us worthy to be partakers of the lot of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of the Son of His love. In Whom we have redemption through His blood, and remission of sins; Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature; for in Him were all things created in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones, or dominations, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him and in Him. And He is before all, and by Him all things consist. And He is the head of the body, the Chruch, Who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things He may hold the primacy: because in Him, it hath well pleased the Father, that all fullness should dwell; and through Him to reconcile all things unto Himself, making peace through the blood of His cross, both as to the things that are on earth, and the things that are in heaven, in Christ Jesus Our Lord.

Gradual. Ps. 71,  8, 11

He shall rule from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth. And all kings of the earth shall adore Him: all nations shall serve Him.

Alleluia, alleluia. His power is an everlasting power that shall not be taken away: and His kingdom that shall not be destroyed. Alleluia.

Gospel. John 18, 33-37

At that time: Pilate said to Jesus; Art thou the King of the Jews? Jesus answered: Sayest thou this thing of thyself, or have others told it thee of Me? Pilate answered: Am I a  Jew? Thy own nation, and the chief priests, have delivered thee up to me: what hast thou done?  Jesus answered: My kindgom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would certainly strive that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now My kingdom is not from hence. Pilate therefore said to him: Art thou a king then? Jesus answered: Thou sayest that I am a King. For this was I born, and for this came I into the world; that I should give testimony to the truth, Everyone that is of the truth, hearreth My voice.

Offertory. Ps. 2, 8

Ask of Me, and I will give The the Gentiles for Thy inheritance, and the utmost parts of the earth for Thy possession.

Secret

O Lord, we offer Thee this host for the reconciliation of humanity; grant, we beseech Thee, that Jesus Christ Thy Son our Lord, Whom we immolate in this sacrifice, will bestow on all Gentiles the gifts of unity and peace, Who with Thee liveth and reignest in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end, Amen.

Communion.

The Lord shall sit King forever. The Lord will bless His people with peace.

Postcommunion

Fed with this immortal nourishment, we beseech Thee, O Lord, that we who glory to fight under the standard of Christ the King, may forever reign with Him on the heavenly throne. Who with Thee liveth and reignest, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end, Amen.

NO KING BUT JESUS !

  1. Thank you Paul for sharing this post. Your love for Jesus and humanity overflows in your writing and I often feel a little more hopeful about our world and future after I see there are others like yourself and James P. who love God and Jesus Christ as much as I do. God bless you and thank you. Also shout out to Anna and team and her family for all their dedication.

    1. Thank you. Most so called Catholics have thrown the Baby (true Faith) out with the bath water. I am trying to keep my Faith without error. That's all that matters. Truth is everything!

  2. What a fantastic post that holds much of my belief's and personal comments to my friends & family.
    I too believe that America can come back to full life quickly, thrive within months even.
    If it returns to it's wholesome adoration and belief, it's foundations within the Judeo-Christian mentality, that God is our guiding light...that shinning light on the hill, that Americans & America is supposed to emulate.
    Without getting into my personal religious beliefs between the only two Masters (energy) that we all get to choose from...the only correction I would mention is...

    ...No King but God!

    Thank you for that brilliantly articulated, powerfully moving article of Truth, Mr. Stramer.
    HOO-YAH & God Bless the Awakening & the Restoration of the Republic.

    1. Thaddeus, sorry, but Jesus paid the price, and He gets to Rule as King of King and Lord of Lords, and people do not get to vote on it. It is a done deal, and upon his physical Return He will be The King. But there is a great cleanup of all that is wrong and all those who are the culprits that will be done first...which will be done by God Himself from Heaven. Watch and see. Jesus IS God.
      After He rose from the grave, and after about 40 days, he ascended saying ''I go to my Father; and just as you SEE me go, you will SEE me come again''. That is when this Earth will be run His Way, and only His Way.
      Jesus is not ''some energy'. And why do you hide your personal religious beliefs? What we believe is what we are; and Jesus said that his little flock must be ''all in one accord''. What we believe determines whether we will be part of His Coming Kingdom here on earth.....or not.
      So many want to try to design their own 'salvation' but the fact of the matter is, God is the only one who gets to design it, and it is not multiple choice. Many are called, but few are chosen; there is only one right Answer.
      Too many see this as dictatorial, but if they would get their brains unscrambled enough, they would see that He has made it easy. He set up the scheme of things, and puts it in The Book and all we have to do is line up with IT; because IT is never going to line up with people. So it is futile to try to ''have it your way''.
      It is also futile to even think that Mankind will change their ways to the point where God will restore it from where it is now. When our System has made sin and wickedness ''legal' such as abortion and SS marriage, and sanctioned the education system to indoctrinate young children in such things, allows the present agenda to destroy true christianity, condemns righteousness, and applauds wickedness where nothing is sacred anymore, and promotes Trans, even putting them on the cover of magazines....for God to forgive this country, all of those things would have to Reverse. That is just not going to happen. God is not going to restore a nation or a world so it can continue in its wickedness.
      Paul is right; it could be turned around in very short order, but only IF ....but wicked perpetrators are just too ignorant and still think they can out do God. They will still be shooting at Jesus when they see Him Returning.....if they are lucky enough to still be alive.
      Just like those companies that buy up houses and Restore them; they first rip out everything and make a big mess. Then and only then do they do their Restoration.
      And so shall it be with this country/this world.

  3. "Somewhat Divinely inspired"!!!??? REALLY!!!??? That is like being "somewhat saved"!!! It's an all or nothing situation here, either this country was "divinely inspired" or it wasn't. The fact that flawed agents were used to set it up does not negate the Divine Disposition that covered this country. ANY country could have such Divine favor as the USA has had but they ALL, without except, chose to build their gov'ts on men, kings, and set up a secular gov't not based on Biblical Christian principals, so, they did not reap the Blessings that the USA has been given. That said, one does not have to be a genius to read the Scriptures to note that the greatest punishments have been reserved for that had a false form of Biblical worship while serving idols of the heart and being an immoral people at the same time. The people of the Us are going to be spanked big time by our enemies for their religious hypocrisy and they are going to wonder WHY such bad things are happening to such wonderful people!!! I could state more to prove my point but this such suffice for any thinking person.

  4. If you were talking about a religious document rather than a constitution written by men I would agree, it's all or nothing, but in this case there is room for inspiration in some of the ideas, and not in other parts. Like for example, the men that wrote it didn't include in the treaty clause, that any treaty had to be strictly in line with all the other parts of the Constitution. In other words, the founders were smart, but not God. They didn't see some things, that could have been done much better. Regardles of how flawed the document is, it was God's MERCY that let us last as long as we have. Let us pray that His Mercy will continue long enough for many more people to wake up, and if we can't save our country, perhaps our souls can be saved in the process of what we learn and do accordingly. God does the saving, but we are obligated to do our part, repent, and then do battle to show Him we really mean it.

  5. Three principles of the law and government arise from Scripture at the foundation of the common-law tradition. First, the only lawful exercise of law and government is ministerial: every magistrate and officer holds office, authority, and power at the pleasure of God to whom responsibility is owed and to whom must be answered to for the doing of the office. Second, that God alone is Lord of the individual conscience:each individual, from private persons serving as juror to the public magistrate or officer, is responsible before God to inform his or her conscience aright and to exercise independent judgment in determining his or her convictions and acting upon them: the duty of independent discernment is non-delegable. Third, obedience to any command contrary to God's desire is always wrong. Moreover, when the individual answers to to God for his or her doings of the office held, God will never allow him or her to take refuge in his or her frank obedience to, or tacit conformity with, the judgement of any other mortal or combination thereof, regardless of threats, demonstrations of power, claims to authority, or assertions of infallibility. The common-law tradition rests on the foregoing three principles for its foundation and is consonant with them. The civil law tradition is in contrast not consonant with the three foundational principles. ...To place hope in the strong arm of executive power or popular politics is to trust the government of a man or of men in popular assembly. Confidence in the executive power and legislative majorities in exclusion of the proven processes of common law to effect discernment between good and evil right and wrong will result in the tyranny of the total state...common law entitles to all persons due process of law, knowing the only by focusing on fair play can one hope for a fair outcome. Historically, common lawyers have recognized the indispensability of due process, Magna Carta calling it the law of the land...
    There is much more in the "Exclellence of the Common Law" by Brent Winters. Such ignorance abounds today concerning the common law, how it is basis is that no one bows to another man and only God, and how it is base on the Scripture. Thus American Common Law, and the Declaration is divinely inspired, and once learning of this history it is no surprise that all state constitutions first adress appreciation and gratitude for God.

    I have always like Jesus ever since learning about him as a boy. After having asked him for some serious divine only help that was life of death for me, and experiencing the gentle forgiving healing touch, being filled with light, love and a glowing feeling, I can think of no better King.

  6. There is no other King, ever, for all of us. Jesus is God, and the second person of the Blessed Trinity. He will judge us all in the end. He is merciful now, so we must do His Holy Will.
    If Winters is right, then only true Christians should be allowed to sit on Juries, is that what you are saying? And what does a fully informed and right conscience consist of. It would lead me to believe that there can be only ONE TRUE FAITH. That is what Jesus came to teach us, and He is not divided against Himself. My prayer is that we can all have that One True and Only Saving Faith that Jesus taught us, and get the Grace to act accordingly.

    1. Paul, that would be great, if everyone would see the light and the errors of their ways, and be Converted. However, I have watched the decades roll on and each one brings more and more wickedness, promotes it, and by now nobody is appalled by any of the deplorable things that are going on. Mankind has evolved in all the wrong direction. Even the bible tells us that Man will become worse and worse, and I find it to be so.
      I'm afraid we are right back to Genesis 6 again, except today it is far worse than then.
      Verse 5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually
      6 and it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart 7 And the Lord said I will destroy man whom I have created, from the face of the earth; both man and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them
      And of course, the Great Flood came and wiped them all off the earth, except for Noah and his family, 8 people in total.
      I am afraid we are at that stage once again.
      While Noah took the following 120 years to build the Ark, he preached; people scoffed and mocked, and none got saved.
      I am also 'afraid' we are at that stage too. In America we have every possibility and means to know the Truth. There are bibles everywhere and easy to access, yet nobody cares about it.
      We have had horrendous disasters, and nothing wakes them up. Nothing gets their attention, nobody ever thinks about God, and just what if 'those christians' are right.
      God says His Spirit will not always strife with Man. We have 'churches' full of people, and plenty of pastors, none of which believe the Bible to be anything more than just 'stories'. They have all fallen into the world's political correctness and the Truth has been banned simply by watering it down to where it is meaningless. But honestly, people find the Truth distasteful and will never come in line with it.
      Like the Apostle Paul said even back in his day, 'have I now become your enemy because I tell you the Truth'?
      The answer is yes, because anyone I have told even a tittle of Truth to, has become my enemy and quickly....at the same time they walk past my apartment on their way to ''church' religiously every Sunday to hear only what they want to hear.
      And this is what happens even with the gentlest of casual statements of Truth. Deer in the headlights reaction. It is almost funny to me, if it wasn't so sad.
      So Paul, more time 'for people to get saved' will accomplish the same thing that it did in Noah's time. God even tells us that ''today is the day of salvation'.
      The Apostle Paul preached in a town for 3 months; at the end of it all they set out to kill him, so he kicked the dust off his feet to show their rejection of Christ, and he left town.
      This is pretty much where we actually are today. Not what you like to hear, but the time has come when we must face reality.
      It is what it is, and I do not occupy myself anymore with pity on the lost. I have remained ''on call' 24-7 and still do. But it seems even God has less and less assignments. The handwriting seems to be on the wall now.

    2. Duty is ours, but results are God's. Keep doing His Holy Will, and keep educating. Leave it to Him to change people's hearts.

      But above all "Pray without ceasing".

  7. The odd thing is that people think the easy way is to ignore the truth and do something else. Yet "getting over" on someone else only hurts yourself, like hurting some part of your body to benefit some other part. Things work in a certain way, which the truth reveals and protects. Jesus spoke the truth in his home town church and they sought to toss him off a cliff. He slipped away in the confusion of the crowd. Who would try to defy gravity, make up some story about walking leaned over. We all accept it as a law and in doing so are happier and do not fall down as much. Yet people use words where things can be twisted, omitting of making untrue things up only to wind up tangled and suffering like sawing off a board due to adding up the truth in the numbers wrong. It is true if you speak the truth most other people will I find at first keenly listen, as though fascinated, even hungry for it, yet a few days later seem to have mulled it over and decided they had best avoid it. Like Winston Churchill said "Most people stumble over the truth few times in their life, quickly recover from it and dust themselves off going along their way. Narrow is the path, and few are those who find it. If you have found, been shown the path, be joyous of that and have gratitude for those that love you that much. As we see of God's commands for Kings, they were to be one of the people and not take up gold silver and horses for themselves. Anyone see that happening? Only Jesus Christ can be the true King, the truth, the way and the life.

  8. God gave dominion of the Earth over to Man. And it is Man that has made a mess of it, mostly by those in seats of power. The people have been kept in the dark about what they were doing all these 150 years.
    We could equate this to a grease fire on the stove. As soon as the fire started, all we had to do was turn off the burner, remove the skillet, put a lid on it and that would be the end of it.
    But instead our leaders deliberately fueled it. Now we have a house fire, the whole place is nearly burned down. And so there is a 'christian' sector called Reconstructionists who have the idea that ''we must fix the earth so it is suitable enough for Christ to Return''.
    Nothing could be further from the Truth. According to the Bible it is this deteriorated condition which causes Christ to clean it out and this is called the Great Tribulation. Wicked mankind has brought this on himself.
    God did not cause this, but He foresaw that Man would bring it to this deplorable condition; after all, remember God gave dominion of this Earth to Man.
    And so God has a Remedy; Just like he did in Genesis 6. Wipe out all that is and all those who made it this way. And then Jesus will Return and start from scratch again as King of the Earth, minus all evil and evil doers. No man can prevent it, either.
    The only thing we don't know, is just when He will spring into action with the GT.

  9. A new book was just written by Steven E Strang called "God and Donald Trump". I believe were seeing a reversal already in the Whitehouse. Trump is a newly born again Christian and he said the one thing he would like to be known for is the office that prayed the most.
    There are pictures of him in the Whitehouse with members touching his shoulder and branching out from there to make a web of prayer recipients behind him. If you notice, anyone who attacks our President goes down in flames.

    The new attack is from a billionaire who contributed 88 million to the DNC and got nothing back. So now he's spending another 10 million on tv ads that promote the idea of impeachment on our Potus. He is not only going to loose another 10 million but his reputation as well.
    They have no clue that our Potus was chosen by God to clean up the mess, the Bushes, Clintons and Obama have created. An attack on our Potus is an attack on God and who ever does it will be disaplined in front of the whole world. So Paul, we are headed in the right direction so far. The other book out there was from a retired firefighter, Mark Taylor, and his book is called the "Trump Prophecies". As long as we stay in prayer for pur President, we will have the power of Jesus to restore our once great republic. Amen.

    1. Perhaps we are hoping for the wrong things. Perhaps we should be praying that Christ's Kingdom be restored rather than any republic. Let us all pray that God's Holy Will be done rather than our own. God knows what is best for us far better than we do.
