The Please of Allegience

Postby jadmin » Tue Dec 04, 2012 10:38 am

I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

What a strong reminder that "Republic" is another word for "the commonwealth" that always really meant something for the impartial good and equal well being of everybody in the public concern with the peoples best balanced interest kept as a whole domain. Originally that commonwealth principle was taken by the people to be under the highest protection of the most powerful moral standard that can justify itself called God.
Amazing how "the common wealth" that is real was well described in the New Testament:
Ephesians 2:12
Remember I say, that ye were at that time without Christ, and were reputed aliens from the common wealth of Israel, and were fremed from the testaments of promise, and had no hope, and were without God in this world.

"As it is written: Give room to the wrath of God: (Ro 12) wrath is there taken for vengeance. And the meaning is: let God avenge, either by himself or by the officers that bear his room." ~William Tyndale
Romans 12
1I beseech you therefore brethren by the mercifulness of God that ye make your bodies a quick sacrifice, holy and acceptable unto God which is your reasonable serving of God.  2And fashion not yourselves like unto this world: But be ye changed in your shape, by the renewing of your wits, that ye may feel what thing that good, that acceptable, and perfect will of God is.  3For I say (thorow the grace that unto me given is) to every man among you, that no man esteem of himself more than it becometh him to esteem: But that he discreetly judge of himself according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.  4As we have many members in one body: and all members have not one office:  5So we being many are one body in Christ: and every man (among ourselves) one another's members.  6Seeing that we have divers gifts according to the grace that is given unto us, if any man have the gift of prophecy, let him have it that it be agreeing unto the faith.  7Let him that hath an office, wait on his office.  8Let him that teacheth take heed to his doctrine. Let him that exhorteth give attendance to his exhortation. If any man give, let him do it with singleness. Let him that ruleth do it with diligence. If any man shew mercy let him do it with cheerfulness.  9Let love be without dissimulation. Hate that which is evil, and cleave unto that which is good.  10Be kind one to another, with brotherly love. In giving honour go one before another.  11Let not that business which ye have in hand be tedious to you. Be fervent in the spirit. Apply yourselves to the time.  12Rejoice in hope. Be patient in tribulation, continue in prayer.  13Distribute unto the necessity of the saints.  14Bless them which persecute you: bless but curse not.  15Be merry with them that are merry. Weep with them that weep.  16Be of like affection one towards another. Be not high minded, but make yourselves equal to them of the lower sort. Be not wise in your own opinions.  17Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide aforehand things honest (not only before God, but also) in the sight of all men.  18If it be possible, yet on your part have peace with all men.  19Dearly beloved avenge not yourselves but give room unto the wrath of God. For it is written: vengeance is mine, and I will reward saith the Lord.  20Therefore if thine enemy hunger feed him: if he thirst, give him drink. For in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head:  21Be not overcome of evil: But overcome evil with goodness.

1Pe 3:17 It is better (if the will of God be so) that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.

2 Peter 3:3-13
3This first understand, that there shall come in the last days mockers (in deceitfulness) which will walk after their own lusts  4and say: Where is the promise of his coming? For since the fathers died all things continue in the same estate wherein they were at the beginning.  5This they know not (and that willingly) how that the heavens a great while ago were, and the earth that was in the water, appeared up out of the water by the word of God:  6by the which things the world that then was perished overflowen with the flood.  7But the heavens verily and earth which are now, are kept by the same word in store, and reserved unto fire, against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.  8Dearly beloved be not ignorant of this one thing, how that one day is with the Lord, as a thousand year, and a thousand year as one day.  9The Lord is not slack to fulfil his promise as some men count slackness: but is patient to us ward and would have no man lost, but would receive all men to repentance.  10Nevertheless the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in the which day, the heavens shall perish with terrible noise, and the elements shall melt with heat, and the earth with the works that are therein shall burn.  11If all these things shall perish, what manner persons ought ye to be in holy conversation, and godliness:  12looking for, and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, in which the heavens shall perish with fire, and the elements shall be consumed with heat.  13Nevertheless we look for a new heaven, and a new earth, according to his promise, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

Galatians 3:15-29
15Brethren I will speak after the manner of men. Though it be but a man's testament, yet no man despiseth it, or addeth any thing thereto when it is once allowed.  16To Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, in thy seeds as in many: But in thy seed, as in one, which is Christ.  17This I say that the law which began afterward, beyond four hundred and thirty years, doth not disannul the testament, that was confirmed of God unto Christ ward, to make the promise of none effect.  18For if the inheritance come of the law, it cometh not of promise: but God gave it unto Abraham by promise.  19Wherefore then serveth the law? The law was added because of transgression (till the seed came to which the promise was made) and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator.  20A mediator is not a mediator of one. But God is one.  21Is the law then against the promise of God? God forbid. If there had been a law given which could have given life: then no doubt righteousness should have come by the law:  22but the scripture concluded all things under sin, that the promise by the faith of Jesus Christ, should be given unto them that believe.  23Before that faith came, we were kept and shut up under the law, unto the faith which should afterward be declared.  24Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster unto the time of Christ, that we might be made righteous by faith.  25But after that faith is come, now are we no longer under a schoolmaster.  26For ye are all the sons of God, by the faith which is in Christ Jesus.  27For all ye that are baptised, have put Christ on you.  28Now is there no jew, neither greek: there is neither bond, neither free: there is neither man, neither woman: for all are one thing in Christ Jesu.  29If ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs by promise.

3If our Gospell be yet hid, it is hid among them that are lost,  4in whom the God of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest should shine unto them the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, which is the image of God,  5for we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord, and preach ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake.  6For it is God that commanded the light to shine out of darkness, which hath shined in our hearts, for to give the light of knowledge of the glorious God, in the face of Jesus Christ.  7But we have this treasure in earthen vessels that the excellent power of it might appear to be of God, and not of us.

Ro 8:1 There is then no damnation to them which are in Christ Jesu, which walk not after the flesh: but after the spirit.
Ro 8:2 For the law of the spirit, wherein is{MT: that bringeth} life thorow Jesus Christ hath delivered me{MC: made me free} from the law of sin, and death.
Ro 8:3 For what the law could not do inasmuch as it was weak because of the flesh: that performed God, and sent his son in the similitude of sinful flesh, and by sin damned sin in the flesh:
Ro 8:4 that the righteousness required of the law, might be fulfilled in us, which walk not after the flesh: but after the spirit.
Ro 8:5 For they that are carnal, are carnally minded; and{MT: But} they that are spiritual are ghostly minded.
Ro 8:6 To be carnally minded is death; and{MT: But} to be spiritually minded is life, and peace:
Ro 8:7 because that the fleshly mind is enmity against God: For it is not obedient to{MC: subdued unto} the law of God, neither can be.
Ro 8:8 So then they that are given to the flesh, cannot please God.
Ro 8:9 But ye are not given to the flesh; But to the spirit: If so be that the spirit of God dwell in you. If there be any man that hath not the spirit of Christ, the same is none of his.
Ro 8:10 If Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin: But the spirit is life for righteousness' sake.
Ro 8:11 Wherefore if the spirit of him that raised up Jesus from death, dwell in you: even he that raised up Christ from death, shall quicken your mortal bodies, be cause that his{MT: this} spirit dwelleth in you.
Ro 8:12 Therefore brethren we are now debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh:
Ro 8:13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye must die. But if ye mortify the deeds of the body, by the help of the spirit, ye shall live,
Ro 8:14 for as many as are led by the spirit of God,{MT: |TI:they|Ti} are the sons of God.
Ro 8:15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage to fear any more, but ye have received the spirit of adoption whereby we cry Abba father.{MC: Abba, dear father}
Ro 8:16 The same spirit certifieth our spirit that we are the sons of God.
Ro 8:17 If we be sons, we are also heirs (the heirs I mean of God) and heirs annexed with Christ, if so be that we suffer together, that we may be glorified together.
Ro 8:18 For I suppose that the afflictions of this life, are not worthy of the glory which shall be shewed upon us.
Ro 8:19 Also the fervent desire{MC: longing} of the creatures abideth looking when the sons of God shall appear
Ro 8:20 because the creatures are subdued to vanity against their will: but for his will which subdued{MT: subdueth} them in hope.
Ro 8:21 For the very creatures shall be delivered{MC: free} from the bondage of corruption, into the glorious liberty of the sons of God.{MC: children of God}
Ro 8:22 For we know that every creature groaneth with us also, and travaileth in pain even unto this time.
Ro 8:23 Not they only, but even we also which have the first fruits of the spirit mourn{MC: groan} in ourselves and wait for the adoption (|TIof the children God|Ti) and look for the deliverance of our bodies.
Ro 8:24 For we are saved by hope. But hope that is seen is no hope. For how can a man hope for that which he seeth?
Ro 8:25 but and if we hope for that we see not, then do we with{MC: thorow} patience abide for it.
Ro 8:26 Likewise the spirit also helpeth our infirmities. For we know not, what to desire as we ought: but the spirit maketh intercession mightily for us with groanings which cannot be expressed with tongue.
Ro 8:27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the meaning{MC: mind} of the spirit: for he maketh intercession for the saints according to the pleasure of God.
Ro 8:28 For we know well that all things work{MC: serve} for the best unto them that love God, which also are called of purpose.
Ro 8:29 For those which he knew before, he also ordained before, that they should be like fashioned unto the shape of his son, that he might be the first begotten son among many brethren.
Ro 8:30 Moreover which he appointed{MC: ordained} before, them he also called; and which he called, them also he justified; which he justified,{MC: made righteous} them he also glorified.
Ro 8:31 What shall we then say unto these things? if God be on our side: who can be against us?
Ro 8:32 which spared not his own son, but gave him for us all: How shall he not with him give us all things also?
Ro 8:33 Who shall lay anything to the charge of God's{MT: goddes} chosen? It is God that justifieth:{MC: maketh righteous}
Ro 8:34 who then shall condemn? it is Christ which is dead; Yea rather which is risen again, which is also on the right hand of God and maketh intercession for us.
Ro 8:35 Who shall separate us from God's love?{MT: the love of god} shall tribulation? or anguish? or persecution, other hunger? other nakedness? other peril? other sword?
Ro 8:36 As it is written: For thy sake are we killed all day long, and are counted as sheep appointed to be slain.
Ro 8:37 Nevertheless in all these things we overcome strongly thorow his help that loved us.
Ro 8:38 Yea and I am sure that neither death, neither life, neither angel,{MT: angels} nor rule, neither power, neither things present, neither things to come,
Ro 8:39 neither height, neither lowth, neither any other creature shall be able to depart us from God's love,{MT: the love of God} which is{MT: shewed} in Christ Jesu our Lord.

And fire came down from God, out of heaven, and devoured them:  10and the devil that deceived them, was cast into a lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet were and shall be tormented day and night for ever more.  11And I saw a great white seat and him that sat on it, from whose face fled away both the earth and heaven, and their place was no more found.  12And I saw the dead, both great and small stand before God: And the books were opened, and another book was opened, which is the book of life, and the dead were judged of those things which were written in the books according to their deeds:  13and the sea gave up her dead, which were in her, and death and hell delivered up the dead, which were in them: and they were judged every man according to his deeds.  14And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire.

¶ In that time Herod the king layed hands on certain of the congregation, to vex them. And he killed Iames the brother of Ihon with a sword: and because he saw that it pleased the jews, he proceeded further, to take Peter also. Then were the days of unleavened bread, and when he had caught him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to iiij. quaternions of soldiers to be kept, intending after ester to bring him forth to the people. Then was Peter kept in prison. But prayer was made without ceasing of the congregation unto God for him. When Herod would have brought him out unto the people, the same night slept Peter between ij. soldiers, bound with two chains, And the keepers before the door kept the prison.
¶ And behold the angel of the Lord was there present, and a light shined in the lodge. And he smote Peter on the side, and stirred him up saying: arise up quickly. And the chains fell off from his hands. And the angel said unto him: gird thyself and bind on thy sandals, And so he did. And he said unto him: cast on thy mantle about thee, and follow me. And he came out and followed him, and wist not, that it was truth which was done by the angel, but thought he had seen a vision. When they were past the first and the second watch, they came unto the iron gate, that leadeth unto the city, which opened to them by his own accord. And they went out and passed thorow one street, and by and by the angel departed from him.
¶ And when Peter was come to himself, he said: now I know of a surety, that the Lord hath sent his angel, and hath delivered me from the hand of Herod, and from all the waiting for of the people of the jewes. And as he considered the thing, he came to the house of Mary the mother of one Ihon, which was called Mark also, where many were gathered together in prayer. As Peter knocked at the entry door, a damsel came forth to hearken, named Rhoda. And when she knew Peter's voice, she opened not the entry for gladness, but ran in and told how Peter stood before the entry. And they said unto her: thou art mad. And she bare them down that it was even so. Then said they: it is his angel. Peter continued knocking: When they had opened the door, and saw him, they were astonied. He beckoned unto them with his hand to hold their peace, and told them by what means the Lord had brought him out of the prison. And said: go shew this unto Iames and to the brethren. And he departed and went into another place.
¶ As soon as it was day there was no little ado among the soldiers, what was become of Peter. When Herod had called for him, and found him not, he examined the keepers, and commanded to depart. And he descended from Jewry to Cesarea, and there abode. Herod was displeased with them of Tyre and Sidon. And they came all at once, and made intercession unto Blastus the king's chamberlain, and desired peace, because their country was nourished by the king's land. Upon a day appointed, the king arrayed him in royal apparel, and set him in his seat, and made an oration unto them. And the people gave a shout, saying: It is the voice of a God and not of a man. And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the honour, and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost.

And he that submiteth himself, shall be exalted.

Luke 22:25-27
25And he said unto them: The kings of the gentiles reign over them; And they that bear rule over them, are called gracious lords.  26But ye shall not be so. But he that is greatest among you, shall be as the youngest: And he that is chief, shall be as the minister.  27For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat: or he that serveth? Is not he that sitteth at meat? And I am among you, as he that ministereth.
