Our family has lived in Argentina for 8 years and we’ve been gone from the USA for 10 years. Last Tuesday, 14 May 2013, the Argentine border police (Migraciones) came to our primitive campsite and threatened to forcibly expel us from Argentina. For what reason? Because almost one year ago we divorced the Pirates on the Potomac (Washington DC) and also including all corrupt, pirate, rebels-against-God nations of the world.
Most specifically the root of contention is that the nations of the world all want the mark of the beast on every individual and to this we say: “No!” If you understand this you also understand that the mark of the beast is vested onto the individual world-wide primarily by means of a passport (citizenship).
Therefore, almost a year ago (23 July 2012) we tendered to the nations of the world a Christian passport and through it we asserted Jesus’ paramount Lordship, that of his special, holy, Christian nation and our Christian citizenship. It is for this that they call us “illegal.” But Gary told them: “No. It is you who are illegal.”
Note well that Argentina’s own law book says these words: “… all people … must be registered … except foreign diplomatic personnel …” [Argentine Civil Code, ¶9, I, 1964], among others. If you don’t think Christians are foreign diplomats then why did Paul, when he was falsely arrested, say: “I am an Ambassador in chains”? Or why did he say: “Our citizenship is in Heaven”? And why would Jesus say: ” … we are in the world, but not of it … therefore they hate us”? We are not of the jurisdiction of this world. We are in Argentina, but not of it; plus we ask nothing of them yet they commit crimes against us as numerous other nations did before we arrived in Argentina.
Gary listened patiently to their spiel, and when they were finished, rather than to waste the police’s time with boring explanations he dated and handed the following statement to them (in French, Spanish, German & English), and departed their company:
Universal Disclaimer (English)
To: whom it may concern
From: the adjutant ambassador
Date: 14 May 2013
Subject: “Let my people go!”
Chief Ambassador (Jesus) and his people have no interest with you, neither in your earthly treasures, nor in your zone of conflict. To disturb the peace is a crime and to detain a just man without just cause is also a crime, because: “God has called us to live in peace.” Therefore, be so kind as to let these people go without further escalation of tensions.
Christians throughout the ages have faced the same dilemma, as Martin Luther stated almost 500 years ago in his famous quote at the dawn of the first Christian Reformation:
“Since your most serene majesty and your high mightinesses require from me a clear, simple and precise answer, I will give you one, and it is this… I cannot submit myself either to the pope or to the councils; [or to any God-hostile nation of the world], because it is clear as the day that they have frequently erred and contradicted each other. Unless therefore I am convinced by the testimony of Scripture or by the clearest reasoning, unless I am persuaded by means of the passages I have quoted, and unless they thus render my conscience bound by the Word of God, I cannot and I will not retract (my beliefs), for it is unsafe for a Christian to speak [or act] against his conscience. Here I stand, I can do no other; may God help me. Amen.”
If liberty is worth anything in Argentina, we have the liberty to live by our conscience, to divorce God’s enemies and to belong to him alone. What belonged to Caesar: passport, mark of the beast, bank accounts, retirement benefits, paper credentials, etc., we gave back to him as Jesus said to do. Now we belong to God plus nothing.
However, the time of the God-hostile nations of the world is finished “I am the Lord your God, who has set you apart from all the nations … on the face of the earth … to be my own.” King David said: “Blessed are all who take refuge in God,” Psalm 2:12. That time is now, and in Peter’s words: We are “a holy nation,” 1 Peter 2:9.
