Seventh Sunday After Pentecost

 Rev. Fr. Leonard Goffine's

The Church's Year

The Introit the Church invites us to give praise to God in the following words:

INTROIT Oh, clap your hands, all ye nations: shout unto God with the voice of joy. For the Lord is most high, he is terrible; he is a great King over all the earth. (Ps. XLVI.) Glory etc.

COLLECT O God, whose providence is unerring in what it ordains, we humbly beseech Thee to put away from us all hurtful things, and to give us all things which will profit us. Thro'.

EPISTLE (ROM. VI., 19-23.) Brethren, I speak a human thing, because of the infirmity of your, flesh: for as you have yielded your members to serve uncleanness and iniquity unto iniquity, so now yield your members to serve justice unto sanctification. For when you were the servants of sin, you were free from justice. What fruit therefore had you then in those things, of which you are now ashamed? For the end of them, is death. But now, being made free from sin, and become servants to God, you have your fruit unto sanctification, and the end life everlasting. For the wages of sin is death. But the grace of God, life everlasting, in Christ Jesus our Lord.

EXPLANATION St. Paul here admonishes the Romans who had been converted to Christianity, but were still sensual and weak, that they ought to be much more zealous in serving God and mastering their passions. He demands of them that they should at least strive, now as hard to save their souls as they once did to destroy them. This certainly is but right, for many a man would become just and holy if he would do as much for heaven, as he does for sin and hell. But to know how wholesome it is to consecrate themselves to justice and sanctity, he wishes them to consider what advantage they derived from sin. Nothing is gained from it but shame, confusion, sorrow, and death, but by a pious life, God's grace and eternal life. - Often consider this, Christian soul, and do not defile yourself by sins, which profit nothing, but bring shame, grief, and the retributive wrath of God.

Seventh Sunday After PentecostGOSPEL (Matt. VII. 15-21.) At that time, Jesus said to his disciples: Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves: by their fruits you shall know them. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit, and the evil tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can an evil tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit, shall be cut down, and shall be cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits you shall know them. Not every one that saith to me: Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven: but he that doth the will of my Father who is in heaven, he shall enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Who are the false Prophets?

Those seducers who under an appearance of virtue and honesty lure innocent, simple souls from the right path, and lead them to vice and shame; who by sweet words, such as: "God , is full of love, and will not be severe on sin, He does not require so very much of us, He knows we are weak, and if a person sins, he can be converted," seek to steal from souls all modesty and fear, of God. Guard against such hypocrites, for they have the poison of vipers on their tongues. By the false prophets are also understood those who propagate error, who by superficial words fade the true faith, who speak always of love and liberty, and who under the pretense of making people free and happy bring many a soul to doubt and error, depriving it of true faith and peace of heart.

How can we know the false prophets?

By their works; for evil, corrupted men can produce only bad fruit. If we look into their life we will find that at heart they are immoral hypocrites who observe external propriety only that they may the more easily spread their poison. The false teachers and messengers of error may be known by their lives, but especially by their intentions, Which are to subvert all divine order, and to put the unrestrained lust of the flesh and tyranny in its place.

Who else are understood by the false prophets?

Those who under pretense of making men happy and rich, induce the credulous to make use of superstition, of wicked arts, deceit, and injustice; especially those who under he deceiving appearance of liberty and equality, independence and public good, incite them to open or secret revolt against civil and ecclesiastical authority.

Be not deceived by these so-called public benefactors who look always to their own advantage, but trust in God, support yourself honestly, live like a Christian, and you will find true liberty and happiness here and hereafter.

Why does Christ say: "Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit, shall be cut down, and shall be cast into the fire?"

He warns us that faith without good works is not sufficient for salvation; and he therefore adds; Not every one that saith: Lord, Lord (who outwardly professes himself my servant, but is not really such) shall enter into the kingdom of heaven, but he who, (by the fulfilment of the duties of his state of life and by the practice `of good works), does the will of my Father, merits heaven. Strive then, Christian soul, to fulfil God's will in all things, perform your daily duties with a good intention, and you will certainly obtain the kingdom of heaven.


What are good works?

All the actions of man which are performed according to the will of God, while in the state of grace, for the love of God.

Which are the principal good works?

Prayer, fasting, and alms deeds. These are especially inculcated in holy Scripture. (Tob. XIII. 8.) By prayer is here understood all religious services; by fasting all mortification of soul and body; by alms deeds all works of charity.

How many kinds of charitable works are there?

Two kinds: spiritual and corporal.

Which are the spiritual works of mercy?

Those that are performed for the good of the soul: to admonish sinners; to teach the ignorant; to counsel the doubtful; to console the afflicted; to suffer injustice patiently; to forgive all injuries, and to pray for the living and the dead.

Which are the corporal works?

Those which are performed for the good of the body: to feed the hungry; to give drink to the thirsty; to clothe the naked; to visit and ransom the captives; to harbor the harborless; to visit the sick; and to bury the dead.

Can we be saved without good works?

No, for Christ expressly, says: Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit, shall be cut down, and shall be cast into the fire. The servant in the gospel who did not even waste the talent received, but only hid it in the ground, was therefore cast into outer darkness. How greatly do those err who hope to reach heaven, simply because they do no evil! Of this great mistake St. Chrysostom plainly says: "If you had a servant who was in truth no robber, no glutton or drunkard, but who sat at home idle, neglecting everything for which you had employed him, would you not pay him with the whip and send him off? Is it not bad enough to neglect that which duty demands?" Such a servant is the Christian who, doing neither good nor evil, makes himself thereby unfit for heaven which is the reward of work performed, and if no work has been done, no reward is to be expected.

SUPPLICATION O Lord, guard me from false prophets, heretics, and seducers, and grant me the grace, that according to St. Paul's instructions I may become fruitful in all good works. Inflame my heart, that I may adorn my , faith with them, thus do the will of the Heavenly Father, and render myself worthy of heaven.

Our Remedies

 By Anna Von Reitz

1. We are grandfathered-in to the original Constitutions as they existed in 1860.  This is because the Territorial and Municipal Congresses had to cover their butts in order to carry on business. The remedy they found for this is analogous to a kid crossing their fingers behind their back: as part of the Enabling Clause of every Act of Congress ever since there is language saying, "This Act shall not ..... change.... any right thus previously established." 

So, we are still in possession of all rights and prerogatives as if none of the Acts of Congress --- Territorial or Municipal --- ever happened. For us, Americans, nothing much has changed, so long as we are standing in our proper political status as Americans, and not voluntarily adopting either Territorial or Municipal citizenships.  The underlying logic and treaties and agreements remain in force.  All we have to do is hold the line and know who we are and enforce the contracts --- in theory. 

Success doing this varies.  We all have to realize that we are dealing with our share of criminals and nothing is sure, but, at least on paper, we also need to know that our rights and prerogatives as Americans still remain as our substantive remedy, unchanged in over 160 years.

2. Next, in order to legalize forced Birth Registration and seizure of our gold and land assets for use as collateral backing the debts of our foreign "federal" Subcontractors, which is patently illegal, they had to recognize our "reversionary trust interest" --- that is, our ability as donors to change our minds. This remedy is found at 12 USC 95(a) described as Regulation of Transactions in foreign exchange for gold, property transfers, vested interests, enforcement and penalties, Part 2. 

3. Next, to legalize the theft of our gold and silver money in exchange for their Federal Reserve Promissory Notes, the Federal Reserve Act as part of its Enabling Clause in Section 15, guarantees our right to redeem fiat as lawful money; this is usually done as a bookkeeping function by "denominating" funds that you are depositing as lawful money rather than physically exchanging fiat for gold --- nonetheless, when you stipulate that funds are denominated as lawful money, they cannot be deemed to be fiat scrip and so, scrip redeemed as lawful money is not subject to seizure, as it no longer belongs to the bank. Even if a depository agreement allowing the bank to seize funds exists, those funds must belong to the bank (be its own scrip) or it's theft of an actual asset and cannot be considered a forced "gift'. 

4.  The Territorial Federal Code offers us peace through the Brother's Keeper Clause, 18 USC 241 and 242.  These sections of their own Code require Territorial Officers to act with good faith with respect to us -- no small matter when they think they are engaged in a "war" against "citizens of the United States" and have trouble remembering the difference between Joe Average American who is owed peace and protection and the Municipal CORPORATIONS being operated under similar names. As always, we don't stand under the Federal (Territorial) Code ourselves, but it helps to remind them that they do.  

5. The remedy for many outrageous commercial crimes perpetuated against us by the Municipal United States Government is found largely through Regulation Z, adopted by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve.  Regulation Z attaches to many separate specific Acts of Congress that involve forced registrations, securitization, property transfers, and so on. 

For example, Regulation Z requires the vendors to give you private license plates (or tags) under the Federal Highway Safety Act of 1956, so that your car can be properly identified as a private American car, not actually a Motor Vehicle.  Mortgages have been covered under Regulation Z Exemptions in the 1934 Emergency Securities Act and the Truth in Lending Act. 

So there isn't just one "Regulation Z" attached to just one particular Act of Congress.  Instead, there are multiple Regulation Z remedies that attach to a wide variety of Acts of Congress and Codes then developed for Administrative use. Most such remedies are exemptions

These exemptions and protections are not, generally speaking, applicable to U.S. Citizens or citizens of the United States --- but if you are an American standing in your original birthright political status and claiming your reversionary trust interest, they apply to you. 

6. One of the most profound remedies has been recently delivered and reiterated by the U.S. Supreme Court in Virginia v. EPA, which echoes a Tennessee Supreme Court case, Norton v. Shelby County, from almost a century ago.  The ruling relieves the General Public -- that is, Americans standing in their original political status --- from the burdens of Administrative Law Courts and Codes.  The Justices affirmed that Congress has no ability to delegate its legislative functions to subcontracting Agencies and unelected bureaucrats, and that Administrative Codes have no authority related to us, again, the members of the General Public.  

Very importantly, this throws the Internal Revenue Code and the Motor Vehicle Code, both, under the bus.  Among the many Codes that have bedeviled and fleeced Americans, these two have been especially destructive.  

In addition to the Internal Revenue Code being enforced against Americans who have no "federal income", certain Sections of the IRC, notably 1091, 408, 61, 108 and 751, have been used to enforce mortgages, foreclosures, and evictions on innocent Americans who shouldn't have ever been addressed by these people to begin with.  

This pernicious practice of accidentally-on-purpose misaddressing Joe Average American as if he was a U.S. Citizen (Territorial) or citizen of the United States (Municipal) has allowed the Internal Revenue Service (Territorial) and IRC (Municipal) Bill Collectors to haul Americans into foreign Admiralty Courts under color of law.  

Now, at least for those of us who have properly declared and published our political status and provenance and given Notice to the Secretaries of State and the Bureau of Consular Affairs, the Internal Revenue Code no longer applies to us and they cannot continue to misaddress us in the face of our objection and clear communication that we are members of the General Public and are not voluntarily adopting any foreign political status. 

Interestingly, if you are having trouble with any of these Agencies, you will have to contact the Secretary of State (or equivalent in some States, where the Lieutenant Governor fills in) regarding Territorial Officers and their Subcontractors, and you will have to contact Bank CEOs, Commissioners, and Bureaus of various kinds, to get things ironed out on the Municipal CORPORATION side.  

Most of the bureaucrats are ignorant and simply suppose that we are the same as they are, but this is not the case.  The system we inherited makes a clear distinction between three different populations all milling about in the same country --- the General Public (that's us), the U.S. Military and Dependents (that's Them) and the Federal Civil Service and Dependents (that's THEM).  

The General Public is not and never was responsible to any level of the government in the same way or to the same extent as these government employees and Federal Subcontractors that are obligated by their duties and employment contracts.  Making them understand this difference is not easy, especially as they will be disappointed to find out that members of the General Public do not bear the same burdens or pay the same taxes as they do.  Nonetheless, it is our responsibility to ourselves and to our children to exercise our guarantees, rights, freedoms ---- and remedies.
