The Code of Abraham
Abraham was able to muster 300 armed men from his own household and was often traveling with a large contingency of people. What was his system of government? There is no doubt that his fame and respect was known throughout the world and even his servants were honored and respected. How did he manage to keep order and manage the daily ministration to these people? What system of law and order did he teach?
The codification of law at Ur replaced the Ana Ittishu, which was the ancient equivalent of modern “words and phrases”, and was a part of an ancient system, preserving the “Sumerian Family Laws”.
Such codes made provisions that mandated the customs of marriage, adoption, liability, and property, as well as obligations to neighbors, penalties for false accusations, and rules for hiring laborers as slaves for a period of time (employment). The importance of a code was that law was no longer a matter of words and phrases or maxims of wisdom to be interpreted by a jural society of your peers, but had become an earthly command of compliance from a central authority. Such central systems of authority had accompanying penalties and punishment and the power of enforcement by a lawgiver and the gods, or judges, he appointed. Law was no longer in the hands of God or His people but in the hands of the ruling elite.
When the Code of Hammurabi appeared, the “king is already the source of justice; the judges are strictly supervised, and appeal to the king is allowed.”31
Over four thousand years ago in the kingdom of Ur, there were systematic methods and specified rules in courts of record. They settled, “disputes arising out of sales, inheritance, gifts, or divorce.” There were different kinds of courts with different jurisdictional authority. “When the claim had been ‘in the king’s name’ and rebutted, the case was settled by an oath either taken by one of the parties or by a witness.” 32
You could be executed for questioning the authority of the princes and gods appointed by the king.
“And Haran died before his father Terah in the land of his nativity, in Ur of the Chaldees.” Genesis 11:28
Haran did not just die, he was executed as a result of some presumed infraction of the codified laws. The word “died” is from [twm] muwth, which means “to die, kill, have one executed… to die prematurely… to kill, put to death, dispatch”.
“And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran his son’s son, and Sarai his daughter in law, his son Abram’s wife; and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan; and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there.” Genesis 11:31
The word “took” is a strong word. It is from laqach, meaning “take possession of”. The ancient stories tell us that Haran was executed for the crime of defying the authority of the gods of the city. Abraham had done the same, but he was spared.
Terah took possession of his family and exited the jurisdiction of Ur. This was because neither the Father nor the individuals of the family had possession of themselves before they left. They were persons or souls of the state. Terah, Haran, Nahor, and Abram were persons within the jurisdiction of the city walls and under its authority. Terah had learned some of a lesson, which cost him the life of his son, Haran. Although he detested the tyranny of Ur, he was not willing to let go of that power over other men and trust solely in God and His liberty and free dominion.
Abram had separated himself from the Asuras in India, then he left Ur and, finally, he left the city-state of Haran and his own family. That City-State had been established by his own father, Terah, and named after his executed brother, Haran. Though he had expatriated from family and the civil power of his people, he had continued to tithe to the righteous King of peace. According to the Ana Ittishu, or “Family Laws”, the righteous king was the eldest generator of the family.
Abraham remained righteous in his honor to his generator, e.g. righteous in his generations. He became Abraham after he refused to take even a shoe latch of the spoils of the City-State Sodom and was blessed by that righteous King of peace for his faithfulness to the ways of God the Father.
“That I will not [take] from a thread even to a shoelatchet, and that I will not take any thing that [is] thine, lest thou shouldest say, I have made Abram rich:” Genesis 14:23
The generations of Abraham were Shem, begat Arphaxad, Shelah, Eber, Peleg, Reu, Serug, Nahor, Terah, Abram who became Abraham. Amongst all the descendants of Shem, there were many that disagreed and even fought over who should be the rightful heir to the blessings of Shem. Shem was rightful king as elder of the family of man and, according to Bible chronologists, Shem was still around when Abraham expatriated from his father and the matrix of the City-State. Since Noah and his wife had died, Shem was a righteous king of peace. He was without Father and Mother and was possessor of all his rights. Shem was sui juris according to the family laws that preceded the codification by kings. Although he had produced many heirs, no one had been chosen. There was no one worthy of the honor and blessing of that royal office of the righteous King of Peace.
“And Melchizedek [righteous king] king of Salem [peace] brought forth bread and wine: and he [was] the priest of the most high God. And he blessed him, and said, Blessed [be] Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth:” Genesis 14:18-19
Abraham and the Family
“Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee:” Genesis 12:1
Abraham knew the importance of family but his father kept diluting the position of the family by seeking the protection of the Patronus of a City-State. That protection had its advantage and disadvantages. It incurred all the protection, but lost liberty; it had charity, but condemned discretion; it pooled the power of men, but not the wisdom of God in their hearts.
If Abraham would separate and live as God intended, God promised to bless Abraham and make him a blessing to others. This offer is extended to all men through God’s offer of Faith in Him and, eventually, through His Son.
“And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:” Genesis 12:2
More than a blessing, Abraham would be a dividing mark in the history of man’s relationship with God Almighty and His Laws and the rulers of men and their laws. He would become a blessing and a curse depending upon our interconnection with the God of Abraham or the institution of men.
“And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.” Ge. 12:3
Many of the religious faiths of humankind claim Abraham as the originator of their chosen faith. Yet, do men walk in the pathways of Abraham? The Hindus, Buddhists, Moslems, Jews, and even Christians can trace their beginnings to his influence, words, or deeds.
What have they forgotten?
Have men lost sight of the message of Abraham the prophet? Have they forgotten the ways of the God of Abraham? Have they left the household of Adam and entered the city of Cain? Have they lost their way in the labyrinth of lies constructed by the adversaries of God the Father?
“And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham. For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.” Luke 19:9-10
Which household have men chosen? Which dominion, which path have they clung to? Have the foundations of modern societies been based upon the precepts of God or upon the methods of Cain, Nimrod, Pharaoh, and the elected Emperors of Rome?
“If we want better people to make a better world, then we will have to begin where people are made --- in the family.”33
Has man lost his way and departed from the grace of God’s dominion, His Kingdom?
