What are Notary Publics?

"A notary or notary public is an officer appointed in the several states under their respective constitutions and laws. These officers are common all over the continent of Europe, where they exercise much more power than they do in England. Their acts have long, by common consent, of merchants and courts of all nations, had peculiar weight and respect attached to them." Bouvier's Institutes of American Law, (1851), sec. 2421.

Where did Notaries come from? And how were they brought into being?

"These officers were known among the Romans, but in Rome they were not at first vested with a public character. Originally slaves, but afterward freemen, had tables in the forum, or public place, whose profession was to receive, excipere, the agreements of citizens who applied to them to reduce their contracts to writing. They were then called tabellions, from tabula or tabella, which in this sense meant those tables or plates covered with wax, which were then used instead of paper. Tabellions differed from notaries in many respects: they had judicial jurisdiction in some cases, and from their judgments there were no appeals. Notaries were then the clerks or aiders of the tabellions, they received the agreements of parties which they reduced to short notes, and, on this account, they were called notaries. These contracts were not binding until they were written in extenso, which was done by the tabellions. In after times, the notaries themselves wrote out at length these contracts which was called engrossing. When thus engrossed, the contract was signed by the parties, when they could sign, if not, mention was made of that fact. As these contracts required to be proved in court in case of dispute, it became usual, and afterward it was required, that they should be recorded on the public registers, in order to give them complete authenticity." Bouvier's Institutes of American Law, (1851), sec. 2421, footnote (d).

It must be noted here that, according to scripture of the Holy Bible, two or more witnesses are required to establish a fact.

"One witness shall not rise against a man for a trespass, or for any sin, or for any fault that he offendeth in, but at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established." Deut. 19:15.

In contrast, a notary is unholy, being, first, only one witness, second, not to be doubted as a single witness merely because the office is created by the state (statutory person and office), rather than being created by God (our Father) (witnesses are natural creations of God) and finally, being slaves, freeman (slave made a statutory or "legal" person) or servants, all of which are legally less than a Citizen who's instrument they witness and authenticate.

Finally, note that notaries came into being under Roman Civil Law. The Roman Empire for most of its history was a state governed by military authority, under the guise of civil law. For hundreds of years so-called civil power changed hands by military edict. This power was also regulated, maintained and overthrown by military or quasi-military authority. The Roman Empire is a classic example of a state governed by Martial Rule. The Notary Public is an office which found its origin in Martial Rule and was adopted from it. Therefore, it must be presumed to help impose Martial Rule, where government assumes to be god (as with Roman idolatry) and God our Father and His witnesses are cast aside.
