Meaning of "driver" and "license"

There has been much study on the term driver license. People want to know why we need a driver license to move about in modern society. Why do we need to ask permission from somebody else to use the highways? Originally the word driver was a commercial term. It was defined in the statutes as someone who was hired to drive. Driver did not have the general meaning of "any individual who was behind the controls of a car." It had a specific meaning: "driver is someone hired to transport goods or passengers." A taxi driver, as an example, was a driver. He served money and money interests. Because he served money and not God, he was brought under commerce and regulated. He was required to have a driver license or operator's license.

Let's take an example to make this a little easier. When you use a telephone you pick it up, dial, talk with someone, and then hang up. Does that make you a telephone operator? No. We've all known that for a long time. Fortunately no one tried to profiteer by claiming telephone users are telephone operators. Imagine if you needed a license just to use the telephone. Now that I've suggested it, maybe that's right around the corner. Maybe somebody is saying, "Wow! We didn't think of that one! Let's sponsor a bill making telephone users telephone operators. We could create a whole new agency." If this bill passed, bureaucrats could come into your home to regulate anyone using a telephone. Today, we are not being regulated as telephone operators, but we are being regulated as automobile operators or drivers - because we use a car.

Again, when automobiles first appeared, the term driver was a commercial term used for those hired to haul goods or passengers, but people were afraid of the automobile. It was a "newfangled contraption," different from the horse and buggy. It was actually safer than a horse and buggy, but because it was a new idea, people were afraid of it. There were men who took advantage of this fear.4 2 Peter 2:3 By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber. These men started applying the term driver toward everyone, whether they were engaged in commerce or not. Today if you simply sit behind the controls, put your hands on the steering wheel and turn the key in the ignition, you are a driver. Ask anybody. In common language, we are all drivers. Anyone who sits behind the controls of a vehicle is a driver, it is not strictly a commercial term. The States differentiate between a non-commercial driver license and a commercial driver license or C.D.L.5 ORS 801.207 "Commercial driver license." "Commercial driver license" means a driver license issued by this State or any other jurisdiction that authorizes its holder to drive a commercial motor vehicle if the holder also has any necessary endorsements to the license. Driving is a regulated area, whether you are engaged in commerce or not. According to the statute books of Oregon, all "owners" and "operators," are granted the "privilege of using the highways."6 ORS 801.050 Privilege of motorist to use highways. Subject to compliance with the motor vehicle law of this State, owners and operators of motor vehicles are granted the privilege of using the highways of this State. The granting of the privilege is via a "driver license."7 ORS 801.245 "Driver License." "Driver license" or "license" may have any or all of the meanings provided for the terms under this section as required or appropriate under the section referring to the term. The term "driver license" may be used interchangeably with "license" and either term may be used in any or all of the following ways: (1) It may refer to a document issued by this State or any other jurisdiction as evidence of a grant of driving privileges. (2) It may refer to general driving privileges granted by this State or another jurisdiction.

Now that we have seen how the word driver is used, let's look at the word license. A license is permission to do something that would otherwise be unlawful.8 LICENSE - Permission by some competent authority to do some act which, without such permission, would be illegal. Black's Law Dictionary, Fourth Edition. It is a granting of authority to do some specified thing.9 LICENSE - Permission to do a particular thing, to exercise a certain privilege or to carry on a particular business or to pursue a certain occupation. Black's Law Dictionary, Fourth Edition. We won't even deal with commerce, we'll just say a driver is one who is behind the controls of an automobile. A license is the grant of permission to be behind the controls of an automobile.10 LICENSE - Privilege from State or sovereign. Black's Law Dictionary, Fourth Edition. We won't worry about how the legislators, lawyers and judges define it. Who cares? Let's take the worst condition, let's put it in their arena, where they want it. They want us all to be considered drivers and they want us all to have a grant of permission from an appropriate jurisdiction. And lo and behold, they have set up a monopoly. There is only one place where you can obtain a license to drive, and, not surprisingly, it is from them.

They set up the Department of Motor Vehicles to be your supervisor and lord.11 Revelation 13:15-17 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. And you can't go anywhere else for permission to drive. The Embassy of Heaven Church members are currently being persecuted because they have elected to be under the Lordship of the Church rather than the State. Lordship. That is what we are talking about. The lordship of people over people - the nobility classes. The heightening of one person over another. The taking of greater seats.12 Matthew 23:6 "They love the best places at feasts, the best seats in the synagogues." The imposing of heavy burdens upon others, while they themselves are not required to pick them up with their little finger.13 Luke 11:46 And He said, "Woe to you also, lawyers! For you load men with burdens hard to bear, and you yourselves do not touch the burdens with one of your fingers."

You say, "That is not possible, everyone must have a driver license who sits behind the wheel of a car." But have you ever thought about it? Do you see what is going on today? A police officer must have a driver license. Yet, who is going to enforce it? Do you think he is going to turn himself in? It is all for a pretense.14 Luke 20:46-47 "Beware of the scribes, who desire to go around in long robes, love greetings in the marketplaces, the best seats in the synagogues, and the best places at feasts, who devour widows' houses, and for a pretense make long prayers. These will receive greater condemnation." Who writes up the tickets? Who is lording over who? Whose conscience are you being brought into subjection to?15 1 Corinthians 10:29 "Conscience," I say, not your own, but that of the other. For why is my liberty judged by another man's conscience? Can you ever argue whether your actions were prudent? Or whether you were working for the Lord? Or whether God needs it or not? No, you find yourself in a position where they say, "It's the law and you broke it!" The law becomes your accuser.16 John 19:7 The Jews answered him, "We have a law, and according to our law He ought to die, because He made Himself the Son of God."
