 Defusing the Courts

For most of us, the thought of appearing in court before a black-robed priest sends cold shivers down our spine. No one wants to be Synagogues of Satandragged into their courts. The entire court system is evil. Its objective is to destroy human life and human souls. Courts are the gateway to hell. You're not looking at the pearly gates. Oh, no. The pearly gates are made up of forgiveness and love and kindness. But the gates of hell are made up of judgment and punishment and destruction. That's what the courts are - the synagogues of Satan.

Most of us are scared of the power of the courts. But there is a way to defuse the courts and render them harmless. When you "defuse" a bomb, you remove the plug so that it can't blow up and destroy anything. That's what we're going to do with the courts. We're going to defuse their power and render them harmless.

  1. The first plug we're pulling on the courts is "judgment." The lifeblood of courts is judging. Jesus says, "Judge not, that ye be not judged" (Matthew 7:1). If we cannot judge one another, then what will become of the black-robed men sitting in their high seats? They will have no work to do. In the Kingdom of Heaven there can be no courts, no prosecutors, and no judges.

    "For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged." I don't want to judge you. For if I do, the same measuring stick that I use to judge you, will be used to judge me. How can I possibly see to remove the speck in your eye, when there's a log in mine own eye? (Matthew 7:1-5).

  2. The next fuse to pull is "oath taking." Courts depend upon oaths. Those who testify must swear to tell "the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth." Jesus says, "Swear not at all. Let your communication be Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil" (Matthew 5:33-37).

    Swearing requires telling the whole truth. That is more than just answering "yes" or "no." Yet, whatsoever is more than "yes" or "no" comes from the devil! (verse 37) Here is more proof that the courts belong to Satan and are the gateway to imprisonment and destruction of the souls of men. The court absolutely requires swearing of oaths. An affirmation is treated just like an oath and brings the one affirming under the same pains and penalties for false swearing. Without oath taking, the courts could not exist.

    To swear an oath is to promise to tell the truth in your upcoming testimony. But how do you know what you will be saying? You do not know what the future will be. You cannot even make one hair black or white.

    Pull another fuse out of their courts by not swearing an oath. If you do not testify in their courts because you are unable to swear, then they cannot use your testimony or bring you under their power. (1 Corinthians 6:12)

  3. Next, pull out the fuse of "vengeance." The whole focus of courts is on vengeance. "We will prosecute you to the full extent of the law," declares the "judge." "Let's show him no mercy," cries the prosecution.

    "Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth" (Matthew 5:38). Now isn't that exactly what the courts are all about? If a man makes a claim in court, he wants "an eye for an eye." He says, "That man over there harmed me, he should be harmed." And the courts take up the torch, avenging the man they judge to have been injured.

    But Jesus does not want us to try to get even. "Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine: I will repay, saith the Lord" (Romans 12:19).

    In the Kingdom of Heaven, "ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also" (Matthew 5:39).

    If you turn your cheek, there is no court date. If you forgive your neighbor, there is no trial. You've just pulled a big fat fuse out of the court system. It cannot exist in a government of love and forgiveness.

  4. The last plug to pull is "lawsuits." "And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also" (Matthew 5:40). If you don't sue, what work is there for the courts to do? You put them to shame. "And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain" (Matthew 5:41). Now you've done even more than you've been asked. Who could condemn you for doing good?

    When someone wrongs you, what if you do something unexpected? What if you forgive your neighbor for his trespass? What if you lend to those who ask to borrow, hoping for nothing again? What if you love your enemies and bless them that curse you? What if you do good to them that hate you and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you? (Matthew 5:43-44) If you do this, your reward shall be great and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for He is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil (Luke 6:35). In other words, Love defuses the courts. Forgiveness ends the quarrel. It is that simple.

Trial of Jesus

Let's look at the trial of Jesus at Matthew, Chapter 26. Here is a court system very similar to the courts of today. That court system convicted and sentenced to death our Lord and Messiah. Their procedures judged our King guilty of death. To this day, many people put their faith in the wicked court system. We must realize the court system is not a Divine institution. God would not divide His own house. These courts are the works of the devil. The works of the devil crucified our Lord.

The devil had no power to do this unless it was given from the Almighty. And why was that power given? To demonstrate that the court system from the beginning was not of God. And to show that man is so blind that he judges the most perfect man worthy of death. The Father instructs us through His Son to put away those courts.

Casting First Stone

Do you remember the woman caught in the very act of adultery? (John, Chapter 8)) She was brought before a type of court. The scribes and Pharisees were the prosecutors and they brought her before Jesus to be the judge. They argued that Moses commanded that such a woman should be stoned. But they wanted to know how this new King Jesus would respond.

Verse six reveals their evil intent. They were tempting him, that they might accuse Him. Jesus stooped down and with his finger wrote on the ground as if he had not heard them. Finally Jesus said, "He that is without sin among you, cast the first stone." Jesus was putting them on trial first. If they wanted to judge her, then they needed to be on trial first. The scribes and Pharisees must have been outraged. "Hey, she didn't pay the full penalty of the law." But, they left her alone because their lives were also in sin.

The woman caught in adultery illustrates that man must not judge, because he himself is guilty. All men are guilty. Who are we to judge another man?

The courts judge and condemn man. Jesus forgives and saves man. Then He tells us to "go and sin no more."

Splitting up Marriages

Till Death Do Us Part.Many folks exalt the courts and hold them in awe. But the courts are not saving lives, they are destroying them. You cannot expect to get justice from an institution that promotes sin.

There is a wickedness that the courts do every day. They grant divorces for every cause. Jesus says that Moses' law granted divorce "because of the hardness of their hearts, but from the beginning it was not so." God's way is one man, one woman, until death do they part. And if a man or a woman divorces and marries again, they shall be called adulterers or adulteresses. And anybody who marries someone who has been divorced is an adulterer or adulteress (Matthew, Chapter 19, Luke 16:18).

Yet every single day in those courtrooms, men pull apart what God has joined together. The courts are granting divorces against the Word of God. They are filthy home wreckers! "What God hath joined together, let no man put asunder!" No man on the face of the earth can pull apart what God has joined together through holy matrimony.

Study the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew Chapters 5 through 7) and look at how Jesus defuses the courts. Without judging, without oaths, without vengeance and without lawsuits, there are no courts. They have no fuses left. They cannot explode. When you realize the courts are not of God, they lose their power to terrorize us.

The courts are condemned because they are in direct disobedience to Jesus Christ. They are not sitting in God's seat. They are doing the works of their Father the devil.

If we obeyed Jesus, there would be no courts. If there were no courts, can you imagine what would become of attorneys? The attorneys would have no jobs. They would have no work to do. There would be no cases to present in court. If you pull out the fuses from the courts, then it also pulls the fuses out of the attorneys. Judges, prosecutors, and defense attorneys would all become history.

Quit financing them. Quit paying them homage. Quit worshiping the beast. Quit worshiping Babylon. Come out. Wake up. Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. Come into the Kingdom of Heaven where Jesus Christ is Lord, where all is forgiveness of sins and where every man's life and soul can be saved.
