The 19th was My friend’s name day. I had planned to meet with him to present him with a couple of special gifts to celebrate the occasion but the Universe determined that the special ceremony I had planned would be postponed for at least another day. I know there are no coincidences, so I made the best of it.
As it turned out, Caption Yoo, the Spiritual director for the Salvation Army had requested to meet with Me earlier the same morning. He told Me that he had been reading My Blog and that he was very inspired by My vision, though he had little influence in the organization with respect to the commercial side of things. In short, he told Me that there was little he could do to help Me on My quest aside from offer his support and friendship. I said to him that was one of the finest things any man could offer Me and I am Honoured by his friendship. He invited Me to join him for lunch and I was happy to accept his offer. He had wanted to introduce Me to Korean food to celebrate his culture but his restaurant of choice is closed every Tuesday, so We settled for Thai food, which happens to be one of My favourites.
We had a wonderful lunch and some great conversation. He as King of Me to elaborate on some of My philosophies, like how I can practice law without having gone to school or passing the bar. I explained that in a common law jurisdiction, every man has the right to speak for himself in a court of law, no license is required. I went on to explain than licenses are only required to engage in commerce. A lawyer who is working for profit is required to obtain a license and one of the requirements of that license is a bar exam, or ‘passing the bar’. Although some have suggested it is also an acronym for British Authorized Representative, I can’t find substantial evidence to support that claim. My research suggests that the bar represents a physical barrier in the courtroom that separates those involved in a legal dispute from public spectators.
Captain Thomas Yoo seemed very surprised. He as King of Me if I could be charged for practicing law without a licence and I said that I could be – if I were to practice anything outside of common law. I am not an expert in the policies, acts and statutes of Commercial Admiralty jurisdiction, nor do I pretend to be – that is for persons engaged in commerce who have waived their common law rights in exchange for privileges and benefits sanctioned by corporate policies (protected and enforced by policy officers, or ‘police’ officers). I am only an expert in common law – I know what is right and I know what is wrong. If there is no injured party, there is no crime and I have no problem representing any man accused of a crime where there is no injured party. That is why the very first thing I would do in a court of law is challenge the jurisdiction by addressing the Style of the name [of the accused]. Click on this sentence to read what Wikipedia has to say about the Bar.
“Membership in bar association may be mandatory or optional for practicing attorneys, depending on jurisdiction.”
Common law courts do not exist in Canada unless they are demanded, which is likely why it is perceived that a man must have a license to practice law. In most cases (pun intented), Captain Yoo would be right, a license and membership with the Bar Association would be required. As King of a Judge or Justice if one has the protections of the common law in any court is a great start, though I anticipate most would say yes, as Commercial Admiralty law is for those who have already forsaken the common law, which is why the presumption is guilty until proved innocent, rather than the other way around.
On Our Way back, Captain Yoo told Me that he was very inspired by My vision and determination but cautioned Me, stating that the Bible says those who are in positions of authority in Our world were put there by God and must be obeyed and respected. I told Captain Yoo that I believe all the answers are in the Bible and I would be very interested to read the passage(s) he was tall King about. He introduced Me to Romans.
Let every person be in subjection to the superior authorities, for there is no authority except by God; the existing authorities stand placed in their relative positions by God. Therefore, whoever opposes the authority has taken a stand against the arrangement of God; those who have taken a stand against it will bring judgment against themselves.
When We returned from lunch, the above passages from ROMANS 13:1-2 are what Captain Yoo revealed to Me, as King of Me what I had to say about it. Admittedly, I was at once surprised, for I had told Captain Yoo that the authorities of this world would appreciate My Work and support My efforts to bring an end to this system of things, that the authorities in Our world were in their respective positions for good reason. This seemed contrary to what I had said… Then I read the next two passages.
For those rulers are an object of fear, not to the good deed, but to the bad. Do You want to be free of fear of the authority? Keep doing good, and You will have praise from it; for it is God’s minister to You for Your good. But if You are doing what is bad, be in fear, for it is not without purpose that it bears the sword. It is God’s minister, an avenger to express wrath against the one practicing what is bad.
It is amazing how much the perception of a thing can change when it is taken out of context. If all I had to work with were ROMANS 1 and 2, it would seem that challenging authority is indeed a very bad thing and ‘unwise’. However, “Keep doing good, and You will have praise from it; for it is God’s minister to You for Your good.”, is far less daunting and hopeless sounding than the first two passages.
And what are passages, anyway? Do they not generally provide one with a ‘Way’ from one place to another?
I have much more to share, though internet has not been cooperating with Me recently so I have not had any opportunity to Post. The Universe knows what it’s doing, I’ll be back shortly.
Love and Blessings,
