This translates as "the Cross of the Matter" --- precisely the cross that Yeshuah was made to bear, and this single small verse is that one that of all verses in the Bible encapsulates the error that has haunted mankind and ruined our days ever since.
First Samuel 8:5
"And [the people] said unto him, Behold, thou art old, and thy sons walk not in thy ways, now make us a king to judge us like all the nations."
--- King James Version
This is the clan leaders of the people of Israel talking to Samuel, their prophet and High Priest thousands of years ago.
Prior to this time they had placed their trust and leadership in their prophets and their own priests and had no secular kings, which was instead the practice common among their neighbors -- the Egyptians, the Hittites, Babylonians, Assyrians, Canaanites, et alia.
They had placed their trust in Samuel and in his ability to communicate with God, but now that Samuel was nearing the end of his days, they had nobody to take his place. Their entire system of governance had depended on one man, Samuel, and now, they had to figure out something else --- so they elected to do what all the neighbors had done, and have Samuel elect a king to reign over them and "judge" them.
The phrase "judge them" is peculiar and again goes to the heart of the matter. Since Moses gave them the Commandments and then all the 620 lesser laws -- dietary laws, sex laws, contract laws, etc., --- they had been under "judgement". Judgement doesn't exist without Law, because there is no agreed upon standard determining what is right or wrong, allowed or disallowed, within a society.
The Jews had their standards and the Egyptians had their different standards because they all adopted different laws for themselves, and each nation also then had a King to enforce these laws. The Kings, to begin with, were not only law-givers, but law enforcers and judges.
Though we may trust that the tribal leaders had established rules for their people to live by and that a sort of general consensus about these rules existed long prior to Moses, and we may also trust that the coming of the Commandments had further solidified the concept of Law, the election of a King was an entirely new and different matter for the Hebrews.
They had never had a King prior to that.
Prior to that moment, their only King was the living God, and his directives were communicated to them by the prophets.
This is the moment when they kicked God off the throne and allowed it to be occupied by a man. This is when their lack of faith in their own ability to know God became paramount and overwhelmed them.
They thought that they needed Samuel, or someone like Samuel, to act as intermediary between them and God. They didn't believe that it was possible for God to write his law on their own hearts and communicate directly with them.
So, they substituted a man for God, and that was their free will, and they were welcome to it.
Ever since, men have been ruled by the wisdom or folly of other men, and their lives and the lives of their nations have suffered accordingly.
A wise and just ruler brought them justice and plenty. A lazy fool brought the opposite results. A good king could be followed by a sick or profligate son. And so it has been, on and on, with all sorts of different sovereigns, kings and queens, and even an abstraction, "the People", being crowned as the sovereign.
Yet, all of this is a lie and a farce, akin to children playing dress-up, and putting on their parent's garb, pretending that they are grown-ups, too.
A more mature view of this situation was arrived at by William of Normandy in the years after the Norman Conquest, who observed himself to be King, and yet a Fool, subject to Nature, struggling with lust, confusion, and insurmountable burdens.
He also directly observed the carnage and destruction and unhappiness that his rule had wrought in the name of justice, so that even victory turned to ashes in his mouth.
This is an evil system, he decided, one in which a man playing at being King is destroyed by the burdens of kingship, and other men worship him as a False God, and give their lives and their own sovereignty over to him.
And so, we go back to First Samuel, Chapter Eight, Verse 5, where the Mistake was made.
We are born with our own sovereignty, and it is taken away from us almost from the moment of our birth. We are born connected to our Creator, needing no other man or authority standing between us to interpret or judge, but quickly, we are deluded into accepting external authority and the laws of men, which amounts to an external representation of everyone else's conscience--- or lack thereof.
When we again embrace the wisdom and grace to let the Living God be our only King, and ask for our ears to be open only to his Voice, our hearts to answer only to his Conscience, then at last the battle will be won, and we will be able to live as we were created and meant to live.
Ah, but you say, like the Hebrews before you, how can we know -- and be sure -- that we hear the right Voice, and that we are not just following our own ego and prejudice?
First, ask to clearly hear the Voice of your Creator. You will be helped and guided.
Second, can you tell one radio station from another? Aren't there always "station identifications" broadcast?
For example, if you find yourselves in another bloody war promoted in the name of God, it's time to wonder which God? What God?
Third, we now know, for sure, the meaning of the frequencies of the divine broadcast. We know that Love transmits at 528 Hz precisely. This beacon always leads us home. It never leads us astray.
So tune in. Learn to recognize this frequency, and learn how to broadcast it yourself. Yeshuah gave us many lessons to help us do this, and his example, too.
Recently, the topic of the mistreatment of God's Messengers came up. Why do we destroy those sent to help us?
Because we are out of attunement (another transliteration of "atonement") with them.
Why do we splinter off and form so many different religions and follow so many different gurus and prophets?
Because we don't recognize the one Message that is common to them all.
We get distracted by their differences and these differences keep us enthralled, instead of seeing that every true Messenger speaks the same message to us.
All faithful Messengers deliver the same message: love.
