Thoughts are shared, today, on provisions of divine law, ownership of the living, and the World as a system of belief.  Used by divinity as in marriage and priesthood, servitude is a relationship that allows one to develop and practice humility, to foster growth and learning, to increase gratitude, intimacy, respect and trust as well as to nourish, protect, and strengthen.  Twisted and warped by sin, servitude becomes abuse, cruelty, degradation, deprivation, disenfranchisement, misery, neglect, poverty, and wretchedness.  One of the many fighters at “Yahoo! Answers” using the ID “Anonymous” (no profile information appears) posted the following:

 

Yo Christians how the hell did “do not covet” make it into the Ten Commandments but “do not have slaves” got left out?

What happened there?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  The earth is the LORD’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.  For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.  Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?  He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.  He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.  (Psalm 24:  1-5, King James Version, KJV)

“Anonymous”, because popular culture today encourages spiritual confusion and ignorance of sacred knowledge, many fail to maintain a correct relationship with GOD as the  Creator of the earth, and mankind as the creator of “the world.”  The world system of belief includes all the carnal, material, and social mechanisms for communication, exchange, organization, and survival.  What are called the Ten Commandments (also, the Decalogue) only summarize and highlight certain of the many laws provided by a government of GOD.  While all that exists and all who live belong to GOD as a divine possession, only those within the kingdom founded through Jesus Christ now have the divine benefits of sacred law and judgment whereby sinners receive the resolution of conflicts and the settlement of disputes through application of divine law, and divinely delegated authority.  Sin opposes the continued existence of divine law, and may dominate awareness and self-will in created beings and living creatures.  In addition to presenting “covetousness” as trespassing boundaries and personal limits that maintain order, peace and stability, divine law describes “covetousness” as inordinate desire, envy, and lust to possess the goods and property of others.  The abuse and cruelty the world labels as “enslavement” appears in the holy writings, however, the divine practices, in fact, are very different from owning men as chattel as reported in secular history.  For those in covenant relationship with Deity, servitude preserves the life of those offered to GOD and those who are voluntarily bound to divinity.  As the firstborn, as Levites, and as with other offerings that otherwise would be destroyed by holy fire upon the altar, redemption and salvation allows animals, children, and adults to continue as “living sacrifices” that must serve through priesthood.  Of course, where there has been human error, exaggerated pride, racism, and acceptance of sin as necessary and unavoidable, the world has deceived and influenced many to embrace and promote slavery as “natural”.  Perhaps, yourself.
