Unless otherwise specified, verses refer to the New King James Bible.

63: LAW OF GOD: (2 Nephi 8:4) (Alma 41:11-15) Through the help of a friend, GOD revealed these structural orders and keys of law. (Genesis 49:10) (Psalm 60:7, 108:8) The Lord specifically told Joseph Smith that America was founded on a Constitution from GOD.

(D&C 101:77-80, 109:54-58) Our government does have a law that is their personal connection to the Churches of GOD. Public Law of the Land 97-280 from 10-4-1982 (Ether 2:12) represents the union with and acceptance of GOD in our country as a whole. Only Public Law 97-280 backing that the Bible is the law of the land is in accordance with the Constitutional laws of the land as in what is more cometh of the evil in the courthouses. (Jarom 1:5) (Doctrine & Covenants C 98:4-6)

(Ether 2:12) In Doctrine & Covenants 98:7, it says that anything that is more or less than the constitution cometh of evil. This means that anything more or less than perusing the Constitutional ways of GOD will to lead us in the incorrect direction. If the constitution said not to steal, and we then had a law that said under a certain circumstance one could steal, the reason or need for stealing cometh of evil, or from an evil dwelling within unified members one had to steal to eat. (Isaiah 5:8-9) When we are not taking care of our people properly, we actually lead them into thievery. The courts as of now have people arrested. If they have jobs and bills, families and homes, they are still often held. If they are found not guilty, yet spent time in jail and lost their homes and all they have due to legal systems, whom pays for their losses? After that he may have to steal to live. (Proverbs 6:30-31) The courts and legal systems place themselves in direct fault, holding homes in custody of banks and courts. (John 3:18-21) The Constitution is from the LORD, as if bound in stone before GOD. It gives us a clean slate that we can agree with as if a thread of its own, leading us back from a maze of laws. This gives us all the ability to agree on a founding document to begin with. What it means by more or less being evil, is that the ways that the current laws are written push certain people to act in evil ways in order to survive while others have to force coexistence. This happens on it's own, after a web of laws unguided by GOD binds us. We will address this in a moment.

It is no one person's fault, or even the fault of a single group. It is just the way we have become as humans. GOD is giving us the ability to accept something that would work for all people quite better. The work of GOD helps filter out the mind and body of the people of the world as one. There are Federal laws, state laws, county laws, city laws, and these cross over with other countries laws to include things such as the Umbrella Act. There becomes too many laws, disorganized and complicated, while judges were set up in a way that they cannot think for themselves and they cannot judge properly. A judge has been limited to mandatory sentences, and by this has no ability to work with the guilty. (Proverbs 6:30) Most often the accused is found guilty before he or she can even speak, and important reasoning became seen as oblivious.

(John 7:51) (Proverbs 18:13)

(Romans 14:7-13) (1 Corinthians 15:29) For GOD.

(D&C 127:5-12, 128:1-25, 138:31-33) (Daniel 4:25, 4:34) (D&C 124:27-33) Here are the orders of GOD's law.

A: The Grantor and Grandeur of all law is GOD. Cross-reference 'Good News Translation' and ' Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition' Bibles for our Grandeur. (Sirach 17:10) “Amplified Bible (2 Peter 1:16)” “Complete Jewish Bible (2 Peter 1:17)”

B: The Estate of Abraham (Abraham 3:26-28) – Estate Law of Moses (Exodus 40:15) (Numbers 25:13) (Matthew 5:17-18) = Estate Law of the Old Testament having a link to Rome – Estate throne of David, with Moses as an Estate holder. (2 Samuel 7:8-14) (Luke 1:32-33) There are acceptable and unacceptable forms of Estates. We have awaited long for the balanced the Estate of God. “New Revised Standard Catholic Edition Bible; Estate.” (1 Kings 2:26) (Judith 8:7, 16:21) (Psalm 62:9, 136:23) (Proverbs 20:21) “New King James Version Bible. (Acts 28:7)”

C: Trust of Sarah – Trustees; the 12 tribes of Israel – Trust of Jacob with Christ as the Head of the Trust under GOD. (1 Corinthians 11:3)

“New Revised Standard Catholic Edition.” (Galatians 4:1-7) (2 Timothy 1:12) “The Voice Bible (Genesis 1:28)” (Deuteronomy 32:1-10)

D: Beneficiary Heirs– Christ and His body of the faithful – of David's throne. (Isaiah 9:6-7) We the people are the Beneficiaries through Christ within the kingdom of the 12 tribes of Israel. (Romans 8:16-17) (Galatians 3:29) (Hebrews 11:8-10)

Here are the laws that GOD has accepted. Public Law 97-280 and the Constitution with an overview of the truth of the First and Fourteenth Amendments.

Public Law 97-280

"We should live our lives as though Christ were coming this afternoon."

- Jimmy Carter

"I was humbled to learn that God sent His Son to die for a sinner like me."

- George W. Bush

"We hold these truths to be self-evident; that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness."

- Thomas Jefferson,

Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776

Introduced as Senate Joint Resolution 165, with thirty-three co-sponsors, and as House Joint Resolution 487 with 219 co-sponsors, a request was delivered before Congress to honor the Bible as Holy Scripture. The resolution suffered no amendments, no exclusions, no demands that it be stricken of religious references. It became law.

The 97th Congress of the United States publicly declared 1983 the national "Year of the Bible". The bipartisan document known as Public Law 97-280, was signed on October 4, 1982 by Speaker of the House Thomas P. O'Neill, President of the Senate - Pro Tempore Strom Thurmond, and President of the United States Ronald Reagan. It reads as follows:

Public Law 97-280 Oct. 4, 1982

Public Law 97-280

96 STAT. 1211

97th Congress

Joint Resolution

Authorizing and requesting the President to proclaim 1983 as The "Year of the Bible"

Whereas the Bible, the Word of God, has made a unique contribution in shaping the United States as a distinctive and blessed nation and people;

Whereas deeply held religious convictions springing from the Holy Scriptures led to the early settlement of our Nation;

Whereas Biblical teachings inspired concepts of civil government that are contained in our Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States;

Whereas many of our great national leaders-among them Presidents Washington, Jackson, Lincoln, and Wilson-paid tribute to the surpassing influence of the Bible in our country's development, as in the words of President Jackson that the Bible is "the rock on which our Republic rests";

Whereas the history of our Nation clearly illustrates the value of voluntarily applying the teachings of the Scriptures in the lives of individuals, families, and societies;

Whereas this Nation now faces great challenges that will test this Nation as it has never been tested before; and

Whereas that renewing our knowledge of and faith in God through Holy Scripture can strengthen us as a nation and a people: Now, therefore, be it Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the President is authorized and requested to designate 1983 as a national "Year of the Bible" in recognition of both the formative influence the Bible has been for our Nation, and our national need to study and apply the teachings of the Holy Scriptures.

Approved October 4, 1982

February 3, 1983; Proclamation 5018 -- Year of the Bible, 1983

A Proclamation by the President of the United States of America

Of the many influences that have shaped the United States of America into a distinctive Nation and people, none may be said to be more fundamental and enduring than the Bible.

Deep religious beliefs stemming from the Old and New Testaments of the Bible inspired many of the early settlers of our country, providing them with the strength, character, convictions, and faith necessary to withstand great hardship and danger in this new and rugged land. These shared beliefs helped forge a sense of common purpose among the widely dispersed colonies -- a sense of community which laid the foundation for the spirit of nationhood that was to develop in later decades.

The Bible and its teachings helped form the basis for the Founding Fathers' abiding belief in the inalienable rights of the individual, rights which they found implicit in the Bible's teachings of the inherent worth and dignity of each individual. This same sense of man patterned the convictions of those who framed the English system of law inherited by our own Nation, as well as the ideals set forth in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

For centuries the Bible's emphasis on compassion and love for our neighbor has inspired institutional and governmental expressions of benevolent outreach such as private charity, the establishment of schools and hospitals, and the abolition of slavery.

Many of our greatest national leaders -- among them Presidents Washington, Jackson, Lincoln, and Wilson -- have recognized the influence of the Bible on our country's development. The plainspoken Andrew Jackson referred to the Bible as no less than ``the rock on which our Republic rests.'' Today our beloved America and, indeed, the world, is facing a decade of enormous challenge. As a people we may well be tested as we have seldom, if ever, been tested before. We will need resources of spirit even more than resources of technology, education, and armaments. There could be no more fitting moment than now to reflect with gratitude, humility, and urgency upon the wisdom revealed to us in the writing that Abraham Lincoln called ``the best gift God has ever given to man . . . But for it we could not know right from wrong.''

The Congress of the United States, in recognition of the unique contribution of the Bible in shaping the history and character of this Nation, and so many of its citizens, has by Senate Joint Resolution 165 authorized and requested the President to designate the year 1983 as the ``Year of the Bible.''

Now, Therefore, I, Ronald Reagan, President of the United States of America, in recognition of the contributions and influence of the Bible on our Republic and our people, do hereby proclaim 1983 the Year of the Bible in the United States. I encourage all citizens, each in his or her own way, to reexamine and rediscover its priceless and timeless message.

In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand this third day of February, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and eighty-three, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and seventh. Ronald Reagan
