INSTRUCTIONS 0.10: Restoring Your Sovereignty (2023)

We get a lot of questions about being “sovereign” and what it means to be “sovereign”. To us, being “sovereign” means that the government does not control any aspect of your life, so that God and not them are fully in control of your life. Remember, the only authority government has comes from passing laws against crime, and if you don’t violate any of God’s laws, then the government has no jurisdiction whatsoever over you:

“But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law [man’s law].”
[Gal. 5:18, Bible, NKJV]

“…the law is not made for a righteous person, but for the lawless and insubordinate, for the ungodly and for sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, for fornicators, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and if there is any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine, according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God which has committed to my trust.”
[1 Tim. 1:9-11, Bible, NKJV]

“You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of men [and remember that government is made up ofmen].”
[1 Cor. 7:23, Bible, NKJV]

A person who is “sovereign” is either explicitly excluded or exempted from most statutes or codes, or at least is not subject to their provisions because he is either not mentioned therein or is not liable for anything even though his status is defined there. The Supreme Court explained why this is, when it said:

Sovereignty itself is, of course, not subject to law, for it is the author and source of law; but in our system, while sovereign powers are delegated to the agencies of government, sovereignty itself remains with the people, by whom and for whom all government exists and acts. And the law is the definition and limitation of power.”
[Yick Wo v. Hopkins,118 U.S. 356 (1886)]

A legal “person” who is not subject to the laws or jurisdiction of a government is “foreign” with respect to it. This explains why the federal government and the states are “foreign” with respect to each other’s legislative jurisdiction:

Foreign Laws: “The laws of a foreign country or sister state. In conflicts of law, the legal principles of jurisprudence which are part of the law of a sister state or nation. Foreign laws are additions to our own laws, and in that respect are called 'jus receptum'."
[Black’s Law Dictionary, 6th Edition, p. 647]


Foreign States: “Nations outside of the United States…Term may also refer to another state; i.e. a sister state. The term ‘foreign nations’, …should be construed to mean all nations and states other than that in which the action is brought; and hence, one state of the Union is foreign to another, in that sense.”
[Black’s Law Dictionary, 6th Edition, p. 648]


"A federal corporation operating within a state is considered a domestic corporation rather than a foreign corporation. The United States government is aforeign corporation with respect to a state."

[19 Corpus Juris Secundum, Corporations, §883]

The status of being "foreign" as a "sovereign" is also found in scripture, which says on this subject:

"Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you now know that friendship [and "citizenship"] with the world [or the governments of the world] is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend ["citizen" or "taxpayer" or "resident"] of the world makes himself an enemy of God."
[James 4:4, Bible, NKJV]

"Do not love [be a permanent inhabitant or resident of] the world or the things in the world.If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world--the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life--is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away [not permanent], and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever."
[1 John 2:15, Bible, NKJV]

"For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ"
[Philippians 3:20, Bible, NKJV]

"These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off were assured of them, embraced themand confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth."
[Hebrews 11:13, Bible, NKJV]

"Beloved, I beg youas sojourners and pilgrims [temporarily occupying the world], abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul..."
[1 Peter 2:1, Bible, NKJV]

"Do you not know that friendship [and citizenship] with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend [or "resident"] of the world makes himself an enemy of God. "
[James 4:4, Bible, NKJV]

"And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. "
[Romans 12:2, Bible, NKJV]

"Come out from among them [the unbelievers]
And be separate [foreign], says the Lord.
Do not touch what is unclean
And I will receive you.
I will be a Father to you,
And you shall be my sons and daughters,
Says the Lord Almighty."
[2 Corinthians6:17-18, Bible, NKJV]

"Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from [foreign with respect to] the world [and the corrupted governments and laws of the world]."
[James 1:27, Bible, NKJV]

"And you shall be holy to Me, for I the Lord am holy, and have separated you [and made you "foreign"] from the peoples, that you should be Mine."
[Leviticus 20:26, Bible, NKJV]

"I am a stranger in [foreign to] the earth;
Do not hide Your commandments from me."
[Psalms 119:19, Bible, NKJV]

I have become a stranger [foreign] to my brothers,
And an alien to my mother's children;
Because zeal for Your house has eaten me up,
And the reproaches of those who reproach You have fallen on me.”
[Psalms 69:8-9, Bible, NKJV]

A legal “person” who has taken the appropriate legal steps to become “sovereign” and has accumulated legal evidence in support of that status:

(Video) Wilson's 14 Points of Peace

  1. Is described as “foreign” with respect to the statutes and codes of the jurisdiction within which he is “sovereign”.
  2. Is protected by theForeign Sovereign Immunities Act (FSIA), codified in28 U.S.C. Chapter 97, §§1602 to 1611 .
  3. Cannot be in receipt of any federal privileges or financial benefits. The reason is that the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, in section28 U.S.C. §1605(a)(2), includes an exception in which those who engage in “commerce” within the legislative jurisdiction of the “United States”, which is the federal zone, are exempted from the Act. The bible describes "the Beast" as the "kings of the earth" inRev. 19:19, who today are our political leaders. "Babylon the Great Harlot", is described in Rev. 17-18 as the woman who commits fornication with the kings of the earth. Black's Law Dictionary defines "commerce" as "intercourse".

    Commerce. …Intercourse by way of trade and traffic between different peoples or states and the citizens or inhabitants thereof, including not only the purchase, sale, and exchange of commodities, but also the instrumentalities [governments] and agencies by which it is promoted and the means and appliances by which it is carried on…”
    [Black’s Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition, p. 269]

    Christians are described throughout the Bible as God's "bride". A bride who has "intercourse" outside of her marriage to her husband is a fornicator. If she does it for money, then she is also a harlot. Therefore, we as Christians are literally becoming part of "Babylon the Great Harlot" by partaking of financial benefits provided by the government, or by sending the government our money as private individuals. This also implies that churches CANNOT apply or receive an IRS 501(c )(3) designation either.

  4. Cannot be described as a “resident” (which is an alien) or “citizen” under federal law, because both of these statuses include a requirement that the party has made the “United States”, meaning thefederal zone, their domicile. This in turn makes them subject to exclusive federal jurisdiction. The federal zone is NOT covered by the Bill of Rights and all those domiciled there have absolutely no rights, but only legislatively granted "privileges" bestowed upon them by Congress. A person without rights within the legal realm cannot be "sovereign" and instead becomes simply a "subject" of their landlord, which is the federal mafia. A sovereign instead can only be a “national” but not a "citizen" under federal law. This is also consistent with the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, which refers to to28 U.S.C. §1332(c ) and (d) and says that if you are a “citizens of the United States”, meaning a person born in the District of Columbia or the territories or possessions of the United States, then you are not covered by the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act. For evidence supporting why you are not a "resident" under federal law, consult section 4.10 or our Great IRS Hoax book. For evidence supporting why you are not a "citizen" under federal law, consult sections 4.11 through 4.11.13 of ourGreat IRS Hoax book.
  5. Is protected from persecution within federal exclusive jurisdiction by18 U.S.C. §112.
  6. Becomes a “nonresident alien” under both state and federal tax codes. This status is defined in 26 U.S.C. §7701(b)(1)(B).

    The focus of this entire chapter, as a matter of fact, defines all the procedures and steps that you must do in order to be, in deed and in fact, “sovereign”. If you follow the steps in this chapter faithfully and in order and pay attention to detail, then you will fit the description of being “sovereign” as we describe it. Don’t, however, assume, that any government or judge or court will ever fully understand or recognize what “sovereign” means until you explain it to them. We describe why, as a Christian, you have a biblical obligation to become sovereign in section 4.1 of ourGreat IRS Hoax book, when we describe “Natural Order”.

    In the context of individuals, below is a list of things we think define the necessary conditions and prerequisites needed to classify a person as being “sovereign” and in the order they need to be accomplished. Collectively, we classify these as the process of “judgment proofing”.

  1. You must faithfully and honorably follow God’s laws as best you can so that you don’t become a criminal under the jurisdiction of the government.
  2. You must be self-supporting and earn enough money from other than the government to take 100% of the responsibility for your life and your family. You must not be a burden to either the government or your fellow man. Anytime you suck the government tit, you become a privileged person without rights. No food stamps, no welfare, no AFDC, no Socialist Security, no Medicare, or any other government entitlement program.
  3. You must be educated, and preferably have completed at least high school so that you can be functional within society. Sometimes we wonder, however, whether the public FOOL, I mean “school” system is enough. Private school is better.
  4. You should have a computer and know how to use a word processor and a web browser as a bare minimum. This will allow you to acquire the knowledge and have the tools needed to be able to defend yourself in court. We mention this in section
  5. You must at all times be fully informed about your legal rights. If you don’t know what your rights are or you have to depend on anyone else to know what they are, then you are either an intellectual or a financial slave or both and can be easily manipulated and abused by an unethical legal profession and your government. Therefore, you must have read at least the first six chapters of this book and done your best to understand it.
  6. You should understand the criminal laws and the tax laws so that you can present your case well to a judge and jury. Here is what the U.S. Supreme Court says on this subject:

    “Every citizen of the United States is supposed to know the law,…”
    [Pierce v. United States, 7 Wall (74 U.S. 169) 666 (1869)]

    “He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer [shall be] abomination.”
    [Proverbs 28:9]

  7. You must be fully prepared to personally litigate to defend your rights. You cannot depend on a lawyer to do this for you, and if you do, you will become a financial slave to him defending yourself, and that will lead to financial ruin and becoming another “ward of the state” eventually.
  8. You should not have a state drivers license, and especially if it requires you to provide an SSN. Instead, get an international drivers permit. We describe how to do this later in section
  9. You must acquire a post office box, preferably in a foreign country, and have all your mail forwarded to your real domicile. That way, no one can find out from any computer database, where you physically live. This will protect your privacy. We describe how to do this later in section
  10. You must remove the header and the phone number from your fax machine, so that when you fax things to others, they cannot know your phone number.
  11. You must copyright your name so that you can prohibit its use by the government.
  12. You should take the necessary steps to protect your assets, including removing Slave Surveillance Numbers from all your assets and putting them in the name of a trust or artificial entity.
  13. You cannot have a marriage license from the state and if you have one, you must eliminate it. Instead, get either a common law marriage or a contract, but not a marriage license. We describe how to do this later in section .
  14. You must be either a “state national” or a “U.S. national” instead of a privileged or presumptive “U.S. citizen”. We describe how to do this later in section
  15. You must reside inside a union state on non-federal land. This will ensure that you are not subject to the totalitarian socialist democracy that is in control in side the federal zone.
  16. You must remove Socialist Security Numbers from all your financial accounts and your real property. We describe how to do that later in section
  17. You must use cash for most of your transactions so that your transactions cannot be traced.
  18. You should keep your financial records in a place away from your home or in encrypted electronic form so that no organization can subpoena or seize them from your home. Furthermore, you cannot tell anyonewhat records you have, or you surrender your right to not disclose them.
  19. You should not provide a social security number to any employer, and if you do give it to them, the W-4 or W-8BEN form you file stopping withholding must have an explicit copyright statement and nondisclosure statement saying that “acceptance of this form by employer constitutes consent not to disclose this form to any outside third parties, including government, and if this requirement is violated, the form was filed involuntarily and under duress and constitutes a criminal tort and invasion of privacy”. We describe how to do this in section
  20. If you MUST have a Social Security Number, you should start an artificial business name that is your full name in all capital letters. Get a taxpayer identification number using an IRS form W-9 for the business entity that has your name and use that. If you are asked for a Socialist Security Number, provide the one for the business, rather then a personal one.
