The Sealed Indictment (6/14/09)

Let me begin with a quote from David Brainerd (1718-1747) “When I really enjoy God, I feel my desires of Him the more insatiable, and my thirstings offer holiness the more unquenchable… Oh, for holiness! Oh, for more of God in my soul! Oh, this pleasing pain! It makes my soul press after God… Oh, that I may feel this continual hunger, and not be retarded, but rather animated by every “cluster from Canaan,” to reach forward in the narrow way, for the full enjoyment and possession of the heavenly inheritance. Oh, that I might never loiter on my heavenly journey!”

It appears I was not the first to use the word “retard” to describe a spiritual state. How many in their own eyes find their hearts righteous and judge others so easily. Recently a “brother” told me I broke his heart when he saw me sitting at a poker table. In addition he quoted a proverb to rebuke me with the import… bad company corrupts. Later not satisfied by my response he pulled me over to remind me my life is an open letter to be read by other men. I found this a most telling confession and poignant to the retarded spiritual state I boisterously opposed. I am a man who lives my life as an open letter I neither hide my faith or my faults. I live honestly before men and God. Yet this brother like all my critics here carry a sealed indictment in their hearts ready at all times to bring another under their accusation and judgment. They are as much a fraud as judge Alsup. They apply the law to others they excuse themselves from. They hang around the like minded corrupted soul within the church. Like vultures ready to swoop down upon any carrion left over from the many wounds inflicted by their judgments. These types have done more than all persecutions of history to drive men away from Christ. They froth and foam to muster others into their religious rituals while excluding them from the humble love relationship they are called to. I hate the spirit that possesses these men. They profess themselves wise and are ignorant of how retarded they are. Can a man be so easily judged by outward evidence. Let me use my codefendant Bill in example. I personally think he chose cowardice instead of faith. My opinion is developed out of my experience and the choices faith fostered upon me. The opinion may be justified but the objective criteria by which I judge him is completely subjective. I have no real knowledge of the work of God in his life. Jesus sequestered himself away from the crowd (Lk. 19:10) as a coward or in obedient wisdom? Later He stood. (Jn. 18:1-8) Was Bill not called to this stand? God did not give me revelation by which to say thus sayeth the Lord and then to judge his response. That word came but only for self relevance. I could move to judgment of my brother and simultaneously move to self condemnation. If he failed he and God know. If he did not fail a harvest remains. If I love Christ I do not look to my brother as a failure that increases the light by which I see myself but rather as one who in league step seeks to bring glory and honor to our beloved in advancement of His kingdom. Everything else is a retarded fraud and a sealed indictment carried in your heart that will be unsealed by Christ and read as your personal accusation.

Throughout history men have scorned the true knowledge of God and His creation. Peter says they "willingly are ignorant," and Paul says they are "without excuse" (II Peter 3:5; Romans 1:20), but they "delight in their scorning" nonetheless.

"To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them" (Isaiah 8:20). Those who scorn God's Word have no light of their own. "Wise men lay up knowledge: but the mouth of the foolish is near destruction" (Proverbs 10:14).

A few months in any third world prison will knock the starch out most common men as well their faith. The last time I saw Bill he looked like a man who had enough and was looking for ANY possiable exit.Even a deal with the devil was better than the terror that he lived with.I say none of us know ourselves untill we have been severely tested, put into that hot,tight closet with no light for a long period of time.
no matter how strong our past walk with the Savior has been, there never is a time when we can let down our guard. “Therefore, let him who thinks he stand take heed lest he fall” (1 Cor. 10:12).I'm humbly reminded of Peter and the Savior (Lk. 22:61). Luke’s account says, “But Peter said, ‘Man I do not know what you are saying!’ Immediately, while he was still speaking, the rooster crowed. And the Lord turned and looked at Peter. Then Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said to him, ‘Before the rooster crows, you will deny Me three times.’ So Peter went out and wept bitterly” (Lk. 22:60-62).
Brother Bill be of good cheer for you are well loved.

Kurt and Scott No need to justify your actions to the peanut gallery. We are indeed pulling out of "smallville".

JULY 14, 2009

In a stunning victory for borrowers, a New Jersey court has dismissed a foreclosure action filed against the borrowers by Deutsche Bank Trust Company America as alleged trustee for a securitized mortgage loan trust after Deutsche Bank willfully, and despite the entry of three (3) separate court orders, refused to produce documents demanded by the borrowers which included documents setting forth the identity of the true owner and holder of the Note and mortgage, the complete chain of title to ownership of the note and mortgage, payment application histories, and documents as to the securitized mortgage loan trust. The Court had given Deutsche Bank multiple opportunities and extensions of time to produce the documents, but Deutsche Bank continually refused to produce any of the documents requested, resulting in the dismissal of Deutsche Bank’s foreclosure action. The Court also ruled that Deutsche Bank is not permitted to re-file any foreclosure action until it is prepared to produce ALL of the subject discovery.
FDN attorney Jeff Barnes, Esq. represented the borrowers, assisted by local New Jersey counsel.
W. J. Barnes, P.A. has numerous other cases pending where similar discovery requests have been sent to Deutsche Bank, none of which have been complied with to date. As such, additional requests for sanctions, including dismissal, are expected to be filed in these cases.
Deutsche Bank was also the subject of a recent ruling in a case in New York where the Court denied Deutsche Bank’s Motion for Summary Judgment, finding that a purported assignment from MERS to Deutsche Bank was defective and that Deutsche Bank, with an invalid assignment of the mortgage and note from MERS, lacked standing to foreclose. Significant in the ruling was the court’s observation and question as to why, 142 days after the borrower was claimed to be in default, that MERS would assign a “toxic” loan to Deutsche Bank. The court also required a satisfactory explanation, by sworn Affidavit, from an officer of the securitized trust as to why, in the middle of “our national subprime mortgage financial crisis”, Deutsche Bank would purchase from MERS, as alleged “nominee”, a nonperforming loan. The court further inquired as to whether Deutsche Bank violated a corporate fiduciary duty to the note holders of the securitized mortgage loan trust with the purchase of a loan that had defaulted 142 days prior to its assignment from MERS to the trust.
