Law and Order - Laws - Instruments of Adjudication

Instruments of Adjudication

In this article, we will define all of the instruments used by the Lord of Hosts for his purposes.  We will be going into minute detail on all of these instruments at a later time, but we want to introduce to your what the Lord uses when he decided something.  From Decrees, petitions, complaints, swears, vows and the like, you will get to know and understand the things that are used and how they can affect your life.  This is the building block  of the Laws, procedures and determinations that the Lord uses to rule His kingdom, so pay close attention and save this article for future reference.


A petition is defined as:

  1. a formally drawn request, often bearing the names of a number of those making the request, that is addressed to a person or group of persons in authority or power, soliciting some favor, right, mercy, or other benefit:
  2. a request made for something desired, especially a respectful or humble request, as to a superior or to one of those in authority; a supplication or prayer:
  3. something that is sought by request or entreaty:
  4. to petition for redress of grievances.

As you can see, a petition is a formal request, which closely resembles items #1, 2 and 3 above. 


A decree is defined as:

  1. a formal and authoritative order, especially one having the force of law:
  2. judicial decision or order.

Here is how the Lord hands down decrees:

A Decree is a judgment that has action attached to it, usually to compensate one of both parties who are arguing a complaint.  It is an order from the Lord of Hosts that carries weight to satisfy a dispute.  When the Lord of Hosts decrees something, the order goes out and whatever remedy that is given is carried out immediately.


A judicial judgment is defined as:

  1. a judicial decision given by a judge or court.
  2. the obligation arising from a judicial decision.
  3. the certificate embodying such a decision and issued against the obligor, especially a debtor.

This is how the Lord of Hosts handles judgments:

A judgment is when the Lord of Hosts weighs the evidence of a person or being that has violated or fulfilled kingdom laws.  Usually this is to adjudicate any behaviours or actions of people as well as being.  If a being or a person violates kingdom law, they will be judged.  The penalty or reward of that judgment is immediate and not reversible.

Take note of the highlighted terms, Christian.

Now you can see why judgment is such a serious thing.  You know that if you are judged and found lacking, you will go into the Lake of Fire.  Many people will be shocked at their judgment, as they will be found lacking.  This is why you must pick up your cross and bear it DAILY, as Jesus told us to do.  Once the judgment is made, it is NOT REVERSABLE.


A Pledge is defined as the following:

  1. a solemn promise or agreement to do or refrain from doing something:
  2. something delivered as security for the payment of a debt or fulfillment of a promise, and subject to forfeiture on failure to pay or fulfill the promise.
  3. the state of being given or held as security:
  4. the act of delivering goods, property, etc., to another for security. 
  5. something given or regarded as a security.
  6. a person accepted for membership in a club, fraternity, or sorority, but not yet formally approved.
  7. an assurance of support or goodwill conveyed by drinking a person's health; a toast.
  8. to bind by or as if by a pledge:
  9. to promise solemnly: to pledge one's support.
  10. to give or deposit as a pledge; pawn.
  11. to stake, as one's honor.
  12. to secure by a pledge; give a pledge for.
  13. to accept as a pledge for club, fraternity, or sorority membership.
  14. to drink a health or toast to.
  15. to make or give a pledge: to pledge for someone.
  16. to drink a pledge; toast someone's health, success, etc.

In short, a pledge is a solemn promise or agreement to do or refrain from doing something. Hold onto what this means for a moment, and let’s see what an allegiance is.

An allegiance is defined as:

  1. the loyalty of a citizen to his or her government or of a subject to his or her sovereign.
  2. loyalty or devotion to some person, group, cause, or the like.
  3. loyalty, as of a subject to his sovereign or of a citizen to his country
  4. the obligations of a vassal to his liege lord See also fealty, homage (sense 2)

In short, an allegiance is the loyalty or devotion to some person, group, cause, or the like, and it is the obligations of a vassal to his liege lord (See also fealty, homage).  Let’s keep this in mind as well.  Since we are led to it, let’s see what Fealty and homage are defined as.

Fealty is defined as:

  1. fidelity to a lord.
  2. the obligation or the engagement to be faithful to a lord, usually sworn to by a vassal.
  3. fidelity; faithfulness.

So in this case, fealty is fidelity and/or faithfulness to a lord.  I am going somewhere with this, so stay with me.  Let’s keep this in mind as well, as we see what homage means. 

Homage is defined as:

  1. respect or reverence paid or rendered:
  2. the formal public acknowledgment by which a feudal tenant or vassal declared himself to be the man or vassal of his lord, owing him fealty and service.
  3. the relation thus established of a vassal to his lord.
  4. something done or given in acknowledgment or consideration of the worth of another:
  5. a public show of respect or honour towards someone or something the act of respect and allegiance made by a vassal to his lord

So, homage is respect or reverence paid or rendered and the formal public acknowledgment by which a feudal tenant or vassal declared himself to be the man or vassal of his lord, owing him fealty and service.

Just for good measure, let’s define what a vassal is:

  1. (in the feudal system) a person granted the use of land, in return for rendering homage, fealty, and usually military service or its equivalent to a lord or other superior; feudal tenant.
  2. a person holding some similar relation to a superior; a subject, subordinate, follower, or retainer.
  3. a servant or slave.

Did you catch that, Christian?  A vassal is a servant or a slave, granted the use of land, in return for rendering homage, fealty, and usually military service or its equivalent to a lord or other superior. 

Keep this in mind as we put all of this together:

  • pledge:  a solemn promise or agreement to do or refrain from doing something.
  • Allegiance: is the loyalty or devotion to some person, group, cause, or the like; it is the obligations of a vassal (servant or slave) to his liege lord
  • Fealty: fidelity and/or faithfulness to a lord
  • Homage: respect or reverence paid or rendered and the formal public acknowledgment by which a feudal tenant or vassal declared himself to be the man or vassal (servant or slave) of his lord, owing him fealty and service.

So if we pledge allegiance, we are:

  • Making a solemn promise or agreement
  • Giving loyalty or devotion to Faithfulness and fidelity to a lord
  • Paying respect or reverence with formal public acknowledgement
  • Where the tenant or vassal (servant or slave) declared himself to be servant or slave of the lord, owing him (the lord) faithfulness and service

Now, Christian, take a look at the Pledge of Allegiance to the United States of America.  We will take a closer look at this  in a later  article in detail.  You should see something very wrong with whom you are pledging allegiance to.


A Vow is defined as:

  1. a solemn promise, pledge, or personal commitment:
  2. a solemn promise made to a deity or saint committing oneself to an act, service, or condition.
  3. a solemn or earnest declaration.
  4. to pledge or resolve solemnly to do, make, give, observe, etc.:
  5. to declare solemnly or earnestly; assert emphatically (often followed by a clause as object):
  6. to dedicate or devote by a vow:

This is how the Lord of Hosts handles vows:

A vow is a solemn promise made by an individual person or being to participate in an action.  Any vows made do go by the Lord of Hosts, and He will judge the person on what they vowed on and what they did while they were under a vow.  Breaking a vow will result in Judgment, which the Lord of Hosts WILL judge, unless there is repentance and/or forgiveness given for the vow that was broken.  The most common vow is the marriage vow, and The Lord of Hosts says that we would be shocked at how many people violate that vow.  By NOT rescinding a vow correctly, which is through repentance and forgiveness by the Lord Jesus Christ or the Holy Ghost, a broken vow will result in judgment, with the appropriate penalties that apply.


A swear is defined as:

  1. to make a solemn declaration or affirmation by some sacred being or object, as a deity or the Bible.
  2. to bind oneself by oath.
  3. to give evidence or make a statement on oath.
  4. to use profane oaths or language:
  5. to declare, affirm, attest, etc., by swearing by a deity, some sacred object, etc.
  6. to affirm, assert, or say with solemn earnestness.
  7. to promise or undertake on oath or in a solemn manner; vow.
  8. to testify or state on oath:
  9. to take (an oath), as in order to give solemnity or force to a declaration, promise, etc.

A swear is a personal vow that is usually anchored by the Lord of Hosts.  You have hear people say ‘I swear to God!’, correct?  A person who says that had better fulfill their vow or promise because if they do not, the Lord of Hosts will judge them for not fulfilling their vow AND for blaspheming His good name, which is NOT theirs to use as they please.

The Lord of Hosts will, if a person who swears is ignorant, wipe the slate clean.  This is a devise used to ensnare people and many people will be held culpable for what they swore to.  If you swore on anything, REPENT and rescind any swears that you have ever made.  It is the Lord of Hosts’ name that they are swearing on and He holds His name above everything else (Philippians 2:9, Isaiah 48:11).


An Oath is defined as:

  1. a solemn appeal to a deity, or to some revered person or thing, to witness one's determination to speak the truth, to keep a promise, etc.:
  2. a statement or promise strengthened by such an appeal.
  3. a formally affirmed statement or promise accepted as an equivalent of an appeal to a deity or to a revered person or thing; affirmation.
  4. the form of words in which such a statement or promise is made.
  5. an irreverent or blasphemous use of the name of God or anything sacred.
  6. any profane expression; curse; swearword:
  7. take an oath, to swear solemnly; vow.

There are many things that people take oaths for.  They take an oath of office, as many people actually are swearing on a Bible that they will truthfully execute the duties of that office, no matter what that is. Police officers take an oath to uphold the law and to protect and serve the public.  Those in the military take an oath to protect the constitution at the cost of their lives.  In God’s economy, oaths would fall under definition #3, which is a formally affirmed statement or promise accepted as an equivalent of an appeal to a deity or to a revered person or thing; affirmation.  I am pointing this out as this is taken very seriously by the Lord of Hosts.

This is how the Lord handles oaths:

1. An oath is a solemn promise that an act or recompense will be carried out by the person taking the oath. 

2. If that person does NOT fulfill their promise, punitive measures will be taken to fulfill that oath by the Lord of Hosts personally.  The Lord of Hosts will then receive the broken oath as an item that He will judge, and as you already know, The Lord of Hosts’ judgments are FINAL.

3. It is not a good thing to violate an oath because of the punitive measures involved.  You may rescind an oath if you want out of it, and you may reaffirm an oath if you want to change it.  Violation of an oath is very serious and you will be judged. 


A pleading is defined as:

verb (used without object), pleaded or pled, pleading.

  1. to appeal or entreat earnestly:
  2. to use arguments or persuasions, as with a person, for or against something:
  3. to afford an argument or appeal:


  1.     to make any allegation or plea in an action at law.
  2.     to put forward an answer on the part of a defendant to a legal declaration or charge.
  3.     to address a court as an advocate.
  4.     Obsolete. to prosecute a suit or action at law.

verb (used with object), pleaded or pled, pleading.

  1. to allege or urge in defense, justification, or excuse:


  1.     to maintain (a cause) by argument before a court.
  2.     to allege or set forth (something) formally in an action at law.
  3.     to allege or cite in legal defense:
  4.     to plead a statute of limitations.

This is how the Lord Handles Pleadings:

A pleading would be you talking to the Lord about a specific issue.  For example, you want to know how to repent correctly, so you ask your questions and give a scenario so you may be able to understand the answer.  A pleading is usually a prayer that you make that is more like a conversation.  Once the prayer is accepted, an angel writes out all of the prayer so it is in the form of a petition.  The Lord then reads it, and then He answers that petition as He sees fit.  Usually, if you ask a question about a specific issue, He will not give you a one or two word answer, He will explain to you the pertinent points about what you are asking about.  He will tell you what He wants, how He wants it, and what He is expecting.  The Lord will then send you the answer so you will be able to understand it and receive it.


A covenant is defined as:

  1. an agreement, usually formal, between two or more persons to do or not do something specified.
  2. Law. an incidental clause in such an agreement.
  3. Ecclesiastical. a solemn agreement between the members of a church to act together in harmony with the precepts of the gospel.
  4. the conditional promises made to humanity by God, as revealed in Scripture.
  5. a formal agreement of legal validity, especially one under seal.
  6. to enter into a covenant.
  7. to promise by covenant; pledge.
  8. to stipulate.

Here is how the Lord of Hosts handles a covenant:

A covenant is a solemn promise between the Lord of Hosts and a person, provided that a person fulfills conditions of the agreement between them and the Lord of Hosts.


A complaint is defined as:

1. the first pleading of the plaintiff in a civil action, stating the cause of action.

Here is how the Lord handles complaints:

If the prayer is a complaint, which means that you are asking for a recompense for the devil bothering you, then that complaint is evaluated and the Lord decides what He wants to do with it.  He can approve the complaint for a hearing, or He may judge it right there if the complaint is valid and the devil is caught with his hands in the cookie jar.  If a hearing is scheduled, you will them be summoned to be in front of the Lord of Hosts to argue for your recompense.  There is always a decree at the end of a complaint, and the Lord may Decree that the devil has to leave you alone for a season, or the devil has to pay a recompense for what he has stolen and return what he has taken.  that Decree is then written out, and an angel will go and enforce that decree that has been handed down.


A Request is defined as:


  1. the act of asking for something to be given or done, especially as a favor or courtesy; solicitation or petition:
  2. an instance of this:
  3. a written statement of petition:
  4. something asked for:
  5. the state of being asked for; demand.

This is how the Lord handles Requests:

If your prayer is a request, then the Lord will categorize your prayer as urgent, important, as needed, or can wait.  If the request is urgent, as if you need someone to help you if you are being held by knife point or being shot at, then the Lord will take the request, and answer it.  After the answer has been determined, then the request is given to an angel who will fulfill the request.  In the case of you being held by knife point, the request is given to your guardian angel and he moves down to deal with the threat.  In this case, the threat may be a demonic spirit, and that angel goes down and contends with the spirit so you can be freed.  Once the request has been fulfilled, the Lord will tell you that He has answered your prayer.

All other requests are made into petitions and they are answered by whomever wishes to answer the prayer.  In the case of requests, it is usually the person praying asking for something, and the Lord will determine if He will answer it right away or not.  the Lord will then prioritize the petitions and He will answer them in the order of important to can wait.  If the request is not important, He will process the more important ones first, and then He will get to the least important.  Once the petition has been answered the petition is given to an angel who will go and fulfill the petition.
