Of all the forums listed, I cannot imagine a subject more pertinent to the freedom of worship than the right of private property under Yahweh. I found this to be one of the most life changing subjects I have ever read, and I pray it will be as much of a blessing to you as it has been to me.



By the Verbal Vandal

This is a draft outline of a subject little understood even by those who claim to understand it. It begins to answer the questions, “Where do we get the Right to possess Land?” and “Why do we pay property taxes?”

Yahweh’s Law on Land Ownership and Property Taxes.

In recent memory some men have sought “Allodial Title” for their Land so they may own it free and clear of property taxation or clear of assessment. Yet “Allodial Title” in this usage is a faulty term. There is no such thing as “Allodial Title.” Title is a conveyance of a Right in the Land from the one who has Imperium. Title is a grant by someone of higher standing to one of lesser standing. The Allodium rests in the Imperator. The Dominion is what Title grants.
Many say you can bring up an original Land Patent in your name and be free from property taxes. Not true. Dozens have recently been heavily fined by courts for this, then ejected.

The Allodium rests in Yahweh:
New International Version (©1984) “The Land must not be sold permanently, because the Land is mine and you are but aliens and my tenants.”
New Living Translation (©2007) “The Land must never be sold on a permanent basis, for the Land belongs to me. You are only foreigners and tenant farmers working for me.”
King James Bible; “The Land shall not be sold for ever: for the Land [is] mine; for ye [are] strangers and sojourners with me.”

To understand Allodium or Allodial Right or Odhal we must understand that some words are all etymologically related. The proof of this is the subject of an entire volume:

Othala: ancestral inheritance (includes your blood and your Land) based on oath.
Odhal: from Othala, signifies same, the whole thing inherited, by oath.
Allodh: Odhal reversed. The same compound word with the syllables transposed.
Allodium: Latinized form of Allodh.
Oath: pledge of one’s property or future increase to Yahweh or superior. Obverse of Inheritance.
Title: pledge of authority under oath and written down.
Allotment: One’s portion of the whole.
Total: the whole thing.

Notice that Allodial is also related to the Greek for, “but from God.” The Right comes from YHWH by oath, not from men.
I suggest the article entitled, “Standing Upon The Land.” This article purports to convey information that can lead men to possess and hold their Land free and clear of government property taxation or domain in a Lawful Christian Character. Moreover some in Christian Patriot movements are under the impression they can perfect Land Patents to avoid property taxes. This is partly true, but the reasons one can avoid taxation are not generally understood or misunderstood, and a Land Patent does not convey perfect Title, either. A Land Patent is not an Allodial Title. It is no guarantee against tax liability because the Land Patents are of a commercial character, based upon survey fictions (Township, Section, Range) overlaid upon the Land. A Land Patent does not convey Land. The Land Patent conveys the Township, Section, and Range, which are bondable, insurable, tradable concepts or commodities. Many have been duped into thinking a Land Patent is an “Allodial Title”.

With great pains and paying with many sleepless nights, I have researched the subject matter. This has led me to investigations of Land law, real estate, conveyances, contracts, Titles, etc. I believe that the whole truth is not written anywhere in the works of men except in the words penned by the Prophets as contained in the Scriptures. Because their words are translated into Archaic English, and Men have grown lazy, the scriptural truth about Land Ownership, Titles, Allodium or Allodial Title and such are not widely penned. Moreover I believe I will present here, for the first time in about two thousand years, a plain and exoteric expla-Nation of Allodium and the actual Natural Origin of Titles.
I mostly agree with the claims in the article, Standing Upon the Land, but that article and its concepts neglect the fact that Land is held by inheritance as a Nation and not as an individual. There is nothing to stop an individuals idolatrous brothers from ejecting him from his Land if they are determined to, no matter how many posted or closed signs he erects on his boundary. Repentance and Lawful Obedience of a critical mass of men is required to defend a close against hostiles and challengers. Rather than point out minor differences or more properly, nuances of opinion and conclusion with others on this subject, I will make some observations and hopefully provoke some questions. I pray the authors and readers of Standing Upon The Land are amenable to some discourse that we might share thoughts on these matters relevant to the Possession and Dominion of The Elect in these days. Unfortunately all my attempts to contact them have received no response.
Title is a bundle of Rights. The Grantor of those Rights determines the Status of the Grantee and the Nature of the Title. A man cannot declare his own Status. That Status must be granted or bestowed upon Him by His Creator, or in the case of those living in commerce, by the Parens Patriae who stand as sentinels to “BAR” the gate into His Dominion. One must see that anything standing was erected by something Greater.
The bundle of Rights includes usufruct (use/Possession) and beneficium (benefit). All the separated forms of interest bundled together in one person or man make a complete Right. The Grantor may convey all or part of each interest. How much of each is conveyed, and on what terms, establishes the standing of the Grantee. The grant of Dominion, which is higher than Title, and includes the Right to convey Title in Perpetuity, can only be given by one with Imperium, which is Yahweh. All Heirs collectively exercise that Imperium in His Stead as a group, and not as individuals. This is termed, a Nation. An example of Imperium ensuring Allodial Right is when the American Colonists threw off Crown rule, changing the Title of all American Lands to a Dominion held by the new Nation and conveyed via Allodium, which includes Inheritance and Obedience.
A Title granted in commerce presumes the grantee is the administrator of the liens and trusts and other equitable interests that lie against the commercial deeds and in some cases, even against some letters Patent. Said administrator holding the highest interest would be hiding behind a “red shield” harvesting and destroying with a sickle and hammer, penciling in his ledger book at the counting house, and getting monthly advice on efficient theft and sabotage at the Kehila or Synagogue. There is no true ownership in this system of paper documents, only colorable Possession by theft and legal art to cover the theft.
A grant in Allodium would be by and under oath sworn by Yahweh who will not repent of the oath and covenant he made with His Sons, that he would give them the Land for an everlasting inheritance. The heirs of the covenant do not hold Allodium, but rather they hold Dominion. Allodium is the power to will that dominion to future heirs and is not the Title, but the Law that Conveys the Dominion. Allodh is the Oath over “the whole thing” that conveys Dominion and Possession to the Heirs.

Since Yahweh is not the author of confusion (mixing of doctrine, or mixing of anything holy with that which is profane or unclean) men who continue to mix some truth with error end up in the clink or homeless. They do not perceive that pieces of paper are evidence of little to nothing except when commercial administrators desire some legal artifice or excuse to rob the poor and weak.

Allodh or Odhal or Allodium are curious words with a straightforward etymology. AL+ODH, or in modern English, ALL+OATH. This indicates a Possession and Right to possess based on the whole thing being
under oath:
“And He brought us out from thence, that He might bring us in, to give us the Land which He swear [oath] unto our fathers.” [Deuteronomy 6:23] This is the origin and source of Allodium, or “All Oath.”

The Allodium, or Oath, passes the Dominion from generation to generation among the sons of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob through the seed of each generation:

“Thou wilt perform the truth to Jacob, [and] the mercy to Abraham, which thou hast sworn unto our fathers from the days of old.” [Micah 7:20]

“The Meek shall inherit the Earth.”

“Then Joseph said to his brothers, “I am about to die. But God will surely come to your aid and take you up out of this Land to the Land he promised on *oath* to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.” [Genesis 50:24] The oath named in this scripture is the Allodh or Allodium. The Covenant with Israel was all about Possession of the Land and a return to Eternal Dominion over it and all its Emblements.

“Remember your servants Abraham, Isaac and Israel, to whom you swore by your own self: ‘I will make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and I will give your descendants all this Land I promised them, and it will be their inheritance forever.’” [Exodus 32:13] Here we see the heirs and assigns in the Title, and they can be none other, nor can this covenant be conveyed to any but the descendants who were properly pledged in the sacrifice of Isaac. This is an area where Christians err greatly; believing others not a party to the contract can be brought in as beneficiaries–Evangelicalism, a great heresy that annuls the letter and spirit of the covenant. Only the Heirs named by scripture can inherit the Land.
“The LORD, the God of heaven, who brought me out of my father’s household and my native Land and who spoke to me and promised me on oath, saying, ‘To your offspring [a] I will give this Land’—he will send his angel before you so that you can get a wife for my son from there.” [NIV, Genesis 24:7]

Notice the Allodium to convey the Dominion over the Land in perpetuity is dependent upon getting a proper wife for the Heir Apparent. “A Help Meet” means “One to Perfect or Complete” and the woman was given to Adam so he could hold the Dominion. The proper woman establishes the Man’s ‘meekness.’ Meekness is the power to act forcefully or brutally but refraining from doing so out of mercy and love. The women certainly test and prove the man in this. She bears him sons and daughters, whose upbringing and training in worship is the purpose of standing upon the
Land in the first place.
Part of the reason Americans have lost Dominion and cannot convey via Allodium is because their affection for their women is impure and based purely on animal lust for her affections rather than a tending to her status and nature as the perpetuator and focus of his Power into the future of Creation. She reads this weakness in him and punishes him for it by rebellion, further alienating him from his Spiritual Power to stand. To contend with rebellious women jeopardizes one’s ability to hold Dominion over the Land. Feminism, Family Courts, and bogus Temporary Protection Orders are proof of
Merely understanding the forms and technicalities of what Standing Upon the Land (Holding Dominion) looks like in operation, is not enough for a man to successfully do it. He could understand every word and operation described in articles on how to hold perfect Title and still fail completely to hold the Land. It is his improper standing in relation to his brothers and his women that has sapped his strength and resolve to hold the Dominion. Even in ancient Israel “every man went ‘neighing” after his neighbor’s wife” like a horse in rut and of course they could not hold the Dominion over the Land.
The Allodium is the oath, law, or vehicle by which Dominion is conveyed from one generation to the next. The source of Allodium is a sacrifice of the Offspring, or fruit, to the purposes and control of the Grantor, as Abraham did when he faithfully performed to sacrifice Isaac. Genesis chapter 22 relates the Origin of Allodium, Dominion, and Imperium, the Trinity of all True Ownership and Increase there from:

“When they reached the place God had told him about, Abraham built an altar there and arranged the wood on it. He bound his son Isaac and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood. 10 Then he reached out his hand and took the knife to slay his son. 11 But the angel of the LORD called out to him from heaven, “Abraham! Abraham!” “Here I am,” he replied. “Do not lay a hand on the boy,” he said. “Do not do anything to him. Now I know that you fear God, because you have not withheld from me your son, your only son.” “Abraham looked up and there in a thicket he saw a ram caught by its horns. He went over and took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering instead of his son. 14 So Abraham called that place The LORD Will Provide. And to this day it is said, “On the mountain of the LORD it will be provided.” “The angel of the LORD called to Abraham from heaven a second time 16 and said, “I swear by myself, declares the LORD, that because you have done this and have not withheld your son, your only son, 17 I will surely bless you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore. Your descendants will take Possession of the cities of their enemies, and through your offspring all Nations on earth will be blessed, because you have obeyed me.”
When Abraham took Isaac to sacrifice him, a contract was made between Yahweh, Abraham, and his Offspring forever to possess any Land they took by conquest from the enemies of Yahweh. Because Abraham offered all he had (Allodh, Isaac) Yahweh promised to return all He Had (Allodh, All Land) to Isaac’s seed afterward. This is Allodium in a nutshell. Abraham began to cure the contract that was breached by Adam. “And you will be called the repairer of the breach…..” [Isaiah 58]

Only if we do the works of Abraham can we claim the Allodium to convey the Dominion. “They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham.” [John 8:39]
The works of Abraham are specific. In addition to consecrating his Seed and all future Seed to Yahweh, there were other works of obedience and sacrifice incumbent to the Covenant and Conveyance of the Dominion (Kingdom). And these are the works so-called Christians eschew, even calling these good works evil. They now call true Christian faith, “nativism, racism, and xenophobia.” Well that’s because the non-natives, multicultists, and hostile invaders who all are not descendants of Abraham, all hate Christ. Their commercial and criminal activity has but one design: to disrupt the Odhal Right of Inheritance of the Lawful Christian descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

“Therefore, the promise comes by faith, so that it may be by grace…..” [Romans 4:16] The promise of inheritance comes down to us by faith, and even though we have broken the covenant Yahweh made with our ancestors repeatedly, Yahweh inserted grace to cover our breach so we may continue to inherit the Land, *if* we will do the works of Abraham: “You see then that a person is justified by *works* and not by faith alone.” [James 2:24] There are only specific works given in the old and new covenant that bring justification, and these works attempted without faith will fail to hit the mark. Having a program or technique to follow in a technical manner will not allow men to “Stand Upon The Land” even if they do it according to the letter of the Law. There are many other matters of faith and compliance with the Covenants of Yahweh requiring a far greater Righteousness for us to possess the Land in quiet.
The Covenant is the Law, which separated from the temporarily imposed oblations, offerings, and sacrifices in the temple, is the unchangeable law that will never change, disavowed, or annulled: “For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.” [Matthew 5:18]
We see scripturally that Allodh or Allodium, or “All Oath” was predicated on complete and absolute trust between the covenanting parties. Abraham trusted Yahweh enough to sacrifice his only Son, and seeing that Abraham would do it, Yahweh had the consideration necessary for the contract he wanted to make with Abraham and His Offspring forever. It’s ALL OATH. An absolute, irrevocable oath.

The enemies of Yahweh have their own version of Allodh and they call it “Khole Nidra.” KHOLE NIDRA is a bastardized form of Ancient Hebrew and means, “All Oaths.” It is where they sacrifice their consciences by secretly renouncing all oaths once a year and reaffirming their private oaths to serve the Synagogue by hook and by crook to steal the Dominion granted to Abraham’s Children. And who takes the Khole Nidra oath, and thus continues to interfere with Israel’s Possession? Christ named them as a “generation of vipers” and showed their duplicitous hypocrisy in John 8:39.

The Khole Nidra is the foundational engine of all capitalist and internationalist commerce–an oath specifically designed to encourage Satan’s offspring to lie, cheat, steal, and kill in order to swindle the inheritance of Jacob into the hands of Esau’s progeny. The Khole Nidra is an oath and blasphemous covenant of death to sacrifice Abraham’s seed on Satan’s altar. The children of the devil renew this covenant with their ancestor each year. Along with this oath is the commercial Title system wherein deeds of Title are granted without any authority from the one who created the Land and covenanted it to the seed of Abraham. In other words, the modern concept of property ownership is a satanic lie meant to keep Lawful Christian Men from Dominion.

The concept of paper Title patriot remedies, bringing Land Patents forward, obtaining “Allodial Titles” and other ways of “owning” Land free and clear of taxation are a combination of truth and bunk. First of all Allodium is not and never was Title. Allodium is the Law by which Dominion is conveyed to the heirs. Secondly, The heirs must keep the oaths and perform the law. Period. Otherwise they have no claim to inherit the Land and no Allodial Right; Allodium stands against a covenant breaker. Thirdly, including those who are enemies of the covenant, in the society of the heirs, is a repudiation of all the works of Abraham and Yahweh, and lies against our Possession of the Land today. We cannot dispense the covenant and the salvation of Yahweh to His enemies. This is adverse to our Possession of His
And we see how Abraham got his Land and settled any dispute of who owns what:

“And also Lot, who went with Abram, had flocks and cattle and tents. And the Land did not bear them to dwell together, for their Possessions were many, and they could not dwell together. And there was a quarrel between the herdsmen of Abram’s cattle and between the herdsmen of Lot’s cattle, and the Canaanites and the Perizzites were then dwelling in the Land. And Abram said to Lot, Please let there be no quarrel between me and between you and between my herdsmen and between your herdsmen, for we are brethren. Is not all the Land before you? Please part from me; if left, I will go Right, and if Right, I will go left.” [Genesis 13:5-9] Open grazing Land? Use it. Unoccupied tracts? Build on it. There’s nothing there about claiming Title or doing any kind of paperwork or process with a fictitious government cartel that is engaged in commercial theft of the Land! But if you build on it, and stand on it, as Abraham did, then try to bring the Canaanites into the sheepfold, you’ll eventually lose your Possession, for soiling the soil Allodium with crooked seed. And if you bring the Canaanites commercial trafficking documents and codes to “obtain Title” it lies against the Allodium Christ gave to Abraham’s seed.
Recall that Yahweh granted all the Land to Abraham, and Abraham was willing to part it down the middle with his brother without any profit, payment, or remuneration. Because Abraham knows Yahweh is the owner and Lot is also a son, he will not even quarrel over the precious Land. You do not see Abraham saying, “I have Title to all this. You need to get off my property.” In true Christian character Abraham will not withhold the choice of the Land even from his wealthy brother.
Allodium is held by force of arms against contenders. “But if ye will not drive out the inhabitants of the Land from before you; then it shall come to pass, that those which ye let remain of them shall be pricks in your eyes, and thorns in your sides, and shall vex you in the Land wherein ye dwell.” [Numbers 33:55] Notice there is no thought here of bringing the enemies of Yahweh into the covenant and offering them salvation. To do so is to repudiate Allodium and stand as an occupied Nation under the power of the enemy occupiers, just as America is today.
Again, Allodial Lands are held by force of arms against enemies. The Hebrew word for Dominion or Ownership of Land literally connotes the idea of treading one’s enemies under foot. This Hebrew concept carried over into the tribes of the Teutons, Saxons, Nordics, Celts, and Kindred Israelite peoples and by their migrations over thousands of years into the American States.

We cannot possess the Land with quiet Dominion simply by filing some documents and “bringing forward a Land Patent.” These ideas are absurd. We have Allodial Right and stand upon the Land by obedience to the Covenant through faith that Yahweh will perform as promised. We must stand upon the Land in opposition to all who run counter to the covenant made with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

“Allodial property has thus been distinguished from Udal, on the ground that the latter implies ‘a Right complete without writing.’ But this appears to have been merely a local peculiarity of Possessions of the Udal kind, forming no essential difference between them and those called Allodial.”

“Erskine, when speaking of “the Udal Right of the stewartry of Orkney and ShetLand,” says: “When these isLands were first transferred from the crown of Denmark to that of ScotLand, the Right of their Lands was held by natural Possession, and might be proved by witnesses, without any Title in writing; which had probably been their law formerly, while they were subject to Denmark; and to this day, the Lands, the proprietors of which have never applied to the sovereign, or those deriving Right from him, for charters, are enjoyed in this manner: but where the Right of Lands in that stewartry has once been constituted by charter and seisin, the Lands must from that period be governed by the common feudal rules…..” [An etymological dictionary of the Scottish language: illustrating the words in their different significations by examples from ancient and modern writers, Volume 2, by John Jamieson, cira 1882].

We see from the above that Udal was a Scottish form of Allodh or Allodium in which the Right to inherit Possession did not depend on paper or chain of Title as was customary to some. The Right was proven simply by the Natural Possession. These Scots, as descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, just and Righteous men, simply exercised their Rights inherited under the covenant.

The Covenant of Yahweh with Israel forms a military theocracy under his Imperium. His Law is revealed to the Military Chiefs of the people and He binds the Chiefs to protect the Inheritance by force of arms and this is called, Religion. The Military commanders have the power and duty to assemble the people to choose leaders and a form of government to bind them together in the protection of their Inheritance or Rights in their direction of the Militia, and this is called, Constitution, which can be written or unwritten, as the unwritten constitution that protected to Udal Possession of the Scots. Constitution provides for enactments and this comprises Government. Enactments must be executed and this gives us Offices. Acts and Offices and Freemen must be directed in a manner that protects all Heirs and the Inheritance and this gives us Judges and Courts of Law within the realm of Government. Under Yahweh’s theocracy subjection and protection flow in both directions. The Government is not the protector making the man subject; rather the Government is bound to protect the men and the men are also bound to protect the government. The government is subject to men and men are subject to government, because the men and their Christ are the foundation of the Mountain called Government.

All of these things are parts and parcel of Allodium or Allodial Right. Words like Old, Oath, Elder, and Noble all share a common heritage with Allodh, Odhal, Udal, and Allodium. These concepts and the words all grow from the Oaths between Yahweh and Abraham. It comes out of naked military Possession of the Land against all contenders. This is the Law of Nature and Nature’s God referenced in the Declaration of Independence. Feoh or Feudalism is part of Allodial Right. Freemen have servants and the Possession of those servants is Feudal. This is where deeds, Titles, and equity come into play. The Feudal tenures get obversed into naked Possession against the freemen through alien artifices, and through our refusal to manumit servants or slaves in a timely manner. Anciently this was named Yobale or Jubilee–the cancellation of debts and release of slaves every seven years.

Because Americans stopped observing the Jubilee and stopped forgiving debts, we lost Allodium and Possession and are now the debtors. We have become the tail and the stranger has become the head because we disobeyed the oath that required us to drive all the strangers out of the land. Now the strangers are killing us and driving us out of our Lands and houses. Title exists in the spiritual realm and is a manifest on the Land in the behavior between men of Israel, and even in conflict with men of races foreign to Israel. If our behavior here does not conform to the Oath of the Spiritual Master, it will push us away from the Title, or drive us out of the Garden, the protected Area Meted and Bounded by
Divine Imperium, and place a flaming sword in the way, as in the case of commercial capitalism and its bedfellows.
When patriot mythologists tell you that you can “get Allodial Title” or “bring the Land Patent forward to get Allodial Title” realize they are ignorant of the fact that Allodial is not a Title but a Right to Possession based on Covenant Law or Oath to obey Yahweh. It is an assertion of sovereignty authorized by oath to God; it is not a legal process devised in the minds of men. We must obey Yahweh as a society to exercise Allodium. And that must include driving all the enemies and strangers out of the Land, who dilute our sovereignty and use force of arms (corporate police, courts) to deprive us of our Possession of the Land (tax sale, ad valorem lien, IRS seizure, etc.) We must repent, that is change our minds, and become obedient to the Covenant with Israel correct our errors, relentlessly preach the truth constantly until all the flock are awake to return to the green pasture by the still waters, and then we may have Allodial Possession and Dominion of Our Land. We must uphold our end of the Allodial Oath that was cured several times by ancestors and ultimately by Yashua the Christ. “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their Land.” [2 Chronicles 7:14]

“The revolution, or rather the Declaration of Independence, found the people already united for general purposes, and at the same time, providing for their more domestic concerns, by state conventions, and other temporary arrangements. From the crown of Great Britain, the sovereignty of their country passed to the people of it; and it was then not an uncommon opinion, that the unappropriated Lands, which belonged to that crown, passed, not to the people of the colony or states within those limits they were situated, but to the whole people;

”We, the people of the United States, do ordain and establish this constitution.” Here we see the people acting as sovereigns of the whole country… the revolution, the sovereignty devolved on the people; and they are truly the sovereigns of the country, but they are sovereigns without subjects. . .and have none to govern but themselves; the citizens of America are equal as fellow-citizens, and as joint tenants in the sovereignty. ” [Chisholm v. Georgia, 2 Dall. (U.S.) 419 (1793)] “To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I have overcome and am set in My Father’s throne.” [Revelation] This prophecy and promise is fulfilled in part by our being, “Joint tenants in the sovereignty” as stated by the Supreme Court for the United States of America. We must return to the covenant and law of Yahweh to enjoy that tenancy and own our Land without service or fealty to a CORPORATE IMPOSTOR GOVERNMENT superior.

Re: Dominion

While I won’t pretend that I understand all the implications here I do know the application of the scripture you quote at the end is going to be mandatory to get anywhere in restoring true kingdom land ownership.

2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Your post brought to mind this excerpt that I read frequently from: LAW AND SOCIETY Volume 2 of the Institutes of Biblical Law; Rousas John Rushdooney Chapter 69 Law, Holiness and Dominion

I've taken the liberty of inserting the Holy Name Yahweh in place of the title God.
Man is Yahweh's creature, Yahweh's property, and Yahweh's servant or slave. The earth is Yahweh's and all of creation. The only law which can properly govern man and the earth is Yahweh's law. The premise of this is set forth in Exodus 19:5 " … all the earth is mine."
When any nation, … despises Yahweh's law, in His time He brings judgment on them, and the land "vomiteth our her inhabitants" (Lev. 18:25). Possession of the earth is a privilege of Yahweh's grace, and is revoked by lawlessness. Yahweh's law in its totality has reference to the land, to man's dominion by means of the law over the earth, which is the locale for His Kingdom in history. As Joseph Plager has observed, the land "is the proper milieu for the fulfillment of the law." Of the system of laws set forth in the Old Testament and practiced by Israel, Freemantle said, "Their land law was the basis of the system; and this rested distinctly on a religious sanction." The land law is basic because it is the earth which must be subdued and made into Yahweh's Kingdom, and it is on earth that Yahweh's will must be done. The Lord's prayer sets this forth: "Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven" (Matt. 6:10).
The Bible makes clear that Yahweh is present in His providential government wherever there is faithfulness, faith in Him as Lord and Saviour, and obedience to His laws. To be in an area where Yahweh's law is disregarded is to be in a godless land, cut off from Yahweh's providential care to a considerable degree. David saw separation by banishment from a land under Yahweh's law into a land without Yahweh's law as in effect an order to serve other gods. He makes this clear to King Saul, saying.
Now therefore, I pray thee, let my lord the king hear the words of his servant. If the Lord have stirred thee up against me, let him accept an offering; but if they be the children of men, cursed be they before the LORD; for they have driven me out this day from abiding in the inheritance of the LORD, saying, Go, serve other gods.
I Samuel 26:19
Where the law of the land does not serve the triune God and is not His law, there we serve other gods. David did so reluctantly, and under protest. Now churchmen do it as a mark of virtue. The implication of David's statement is far-reaching. The primary law of the Ten Commandments, and its essence, is, "Thou shalt have no other gods before me" (Exodus 20:3). David makes clear that other laws means other gods.
We cannot begin to understand any religion, least of all Biblical faith, unless we realize every religion has and idea of ultimacy, its god, a plan of salvation, deliverance, or release, and a law system setting forth the nature of its god or ultimacy. A religion without law is an impossibility. Where we have a profession of antinomianism (1.), as with many churchmen, it is because the God of Scripture is rejected in favor of anther god, usually nowadays existentialist (2) man. In any system of thought law is the prescription of a sovereign so that the source of law in any society is the working god of that society. Law is torah, the instruction, guidance, and direction of God, He Who Is, the eternal one. Law is covenant law: it declares the basis of man's covenant relationship with Yahweh. Man cannot be in covenant with Yahweh except in obedience to the law of that covenant. Man's obedience is his witness to his faith in and loyalty to the covenant God.
The covenant God declares, "Ye shall be holy: for I the LORD your God am holy" (Lev. 19:2). When St. Peter restates this requirement, he declares that they are called to be "obedient children" (I Peter 1:14), called to forsake their lawlessness and lusts.
But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy (I Peter 1:15-16)
Holiness means separation to Yahweh; profanity means separation from Yahweh. To be holy means to be a regenerate covenant man obeying the law of Yahweh. It means re-establishment in the covenant calling and Kingdom task of dominion. Thus, without holiness, there is no dominion, and without dominion, there is no holiness. Holiness means dominion over our lives, over our calling, and over our work. The holy man is a dominion man. To be separated to Yahweh means to manifest the righteousness or law of Yahweh, and to manifest the righteousness or law of Yahweh means to exercise dominion.
David thus, when banished to a land where God's law was not in force, recognized its implication. Where the law of anther god is in force, a rival plan of dominion to that of the God of Scripture prevails. The law of the land thus in effect requires a man to serve other gods. In such a land, David would have to be either an outlaw, against the law of the land, or a pagan, serving another god. As a temporary recourse, David feigned madness (I Samuel 21:10-15) and used deception (I Sam. 27:8-12) to cover his actual outlaw status while among the Philistines. Anything other than a choice between Yahweh and His covenant law, or Philistine law, was a stop-gap solution.
When Israel was faithless to the covenant God and His law, the result for Israel was the Babylonian Captivity. The covenant God gave them over into captivity to other gods, because in practice they were the worshippers of other gods (Ezek.8:9-18), The Glory of God departed from Israel , because of the apostasy of the people.
The central problem of our time is that men, in the name of Yahweh, are serving other gods while denying that this is the case. Because of their apostasy, humanistic law is increasingly prevalent all over the world. Every law system is a way of holiness, but for Yahweh all these other holiness codes are forms of blasphemy, and His law alone is the way of holiness.
Peter declares of Jesus Christ, "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved" (Acts 4:12). Jesus Christ is alone our Saviour. To be in fact his covenant people, we must manifest His righteousness, His law. We must be holy because He is holy. Holiness means the Law of Yahweh. It means that the earth must be separated and devoted to Yahweh, and Yahweh's law must be the governing rule of the land, life, and thought. Holiness means dominion under Yahweh, over ourselves, our callings and the earth. The holy man is a Dominion Man.
End of Excerpt
1. Antinomianism: one who holds that under the gospel dispensation of grace the moral law is of no use or obligation because faith alone is necessary to salvation
2. Existentialism a chiefly 20th century philosophical movement embracing diverse doctrines but centering on analysis of individual existence in an unfathomable universe and the plight of the individual who must assume ultimate responsibility for acts of free will without any certain knowledge of what is right or wrong or good or bad.

Thank you for that interesting excerpt by Rushdoony, though my wife and I are unfamiliar with his writings we are now looking into his work. There seems to be quite a departure from today’s understanding of Christianity and his keen insight into the way we as a people used to interpret scripture just a few hundred years ago. This Scott has been a continuing theme in our studies, which has taken us on a very different journey for some time now.
The genesis, at least in part, of "Verbal Vandal's" writing on “Kingdom Dominion” I believe comes from "Christ's Lawful Assembly" and "The Book of the Hundreds", which we feel contain a good Biblical outline of how to establish a righteous government under Yahweh, here and now. The phrase “Standing in the Kingdom of Yahweh” from your “Do you understand” thread may even better describe our proper position in life.

Thanks again for your input and may Yah bless.

I have read a lot of Rushdooney's works and he definitely had a dominion mind set. He died not to many years ago.
Although he still had some statist ideas to overcome i still think he was challenging to modern day statist thinking Christians. I've read the Book of Hundreds and any of their other works I've been able to get my hands on. I don't recall reading anything about 'verbal vandals'.
How well we establish Yahweh's kingdom (righteous government) on earth here and now is all going to depend on how well His people can stand firm in His Word/Law and not get entangled with the cares of this world. I've drawn a lot of lines in my life but it seems there's always a new one.
Yahweh Bless

I haven't read any of Rushdoony's work, but I've read quite a bit from his son-in-law Gary North, for whom I have a great deal of admiration. Dr. North's books can be rather large tomes. His book Tools of Dominion is 1296 pages. A few years after writing that one, he realized that many people would never read some of what he considered to be the most important parts of that one. So he wrote an abridged version called Victim's Rights. I own Tools, but confess I have not yet read it. I have read Victim's Rights, and highly recommend it.

Land possession and a man’s right to stand upon the land is a great topic and one, in my humble opinion, that should be discussed and studied by all Christians. Thanks, Y.O.G. for bringing this up! There is still a lot that our generation needs to re-learn about this once widely understood subject.

I’m not sure I’m in agreement with much of what “Verbal Vandal” had written, though. There are a lot of doctrinal issues I see in the article as well as in his assessment of inheritance, Title, Dominion, and possession. The etymology, however, is intriguing.

The Reading Room here at the Lawful Path has a link to the Christian Jural Society News where you can find the original article, Standing Upon the Land, and other very informative articles on land, inheritance and Titles. Gregory Allan has a couple of great articles pertaining to zoning in the Property Rights section of the Reading Room as well. His response to the particular issue he was faced with in Municipal Zoning and the Little Guy is priceless.

Bouvier’s 1856 Law Dictionary with Maxims of Law is a great place to research the Law on all subjects, including land, possession, Title, Dominion, etc.

If you’re anything like me, you have a family and a mortgage. After all, that’s what we were brought up to do. “It’s the responsible thing to do”… get married, start a family, and buy a house with a 20-30 year mortgage. It may not be so easy for us in this generation to change that, for us. But I pray that most of us will be able to pass on what we learn to the next generation, and the next. Lord willing, they will be able to add to what we have started and apply it more easily.

Any thoughts?

May the Lord richly Bless you,
