David Justice


June and July of 1993

Man looking over wall

Motor Vehicles Division, state of Oregon, sent NOTICES OF SUSPENSION to two of our ambassadors saying that they were convicted of driving uninsured. The letter stated, "As a result of this conviction, you were required to file proof of future financial responsibility with the Motor Vehicles Division (DMV) in Salem. Because you have not filed this proof of future financial responsibility, your Oregon driving privilege will be suspended by the Motor Vehicles Division (DMV) beginning at 12:01 AM on the morning of July 20, 1993."

David Justice was never tried in Oregon and is being treated like a resident.

We sent the following reply to the Motor Vehicles Division for both ambassadors:

Re: DMV action against David Justice, HvnDL#1303735
Your File number: 5744276 051957 072293
Title of Action: Notice of Suspension

Greetings from the nation of Heaven. May His Grace and Peace be upon you. By the authority vested in our Sovereign Lord Jesus Christ, we are empowered to maintain a system of records for the Kingdom of Heaven.

We have been notified that you have taken action against David Justice, Heaven driver license number 1303735. We hereby object.

According to records filed with the Embassy of Heaven, David Justice is a citizen and resident of Heaven and his driving record is being maintained under our system of records. Please update your records to indicate that David Justice is licensed in a foreign jurisdiction.

We do not grant you authorization to maintain records or impose your statutory requirements upon our citizen of Heaven. Our Kingdom is not of your world. Your state statutory requirements or court decision is void because you lack jurisdiction over residents of Heaven. Since you acted without our authority, your action is hereby cancelled. Please correct your records.

If you have a complaint against one of our citizens, you may file a complaint with our office and we will investigate, and, if necessary, set a hearing.

May you know the Peace and Joy of the Kingdom of Heaven through Jesus Christ.

In the name of Jesus Christ,

Dear Pastor Paul:

Thank you for your greetings and information regarding Mr. Justice and Mr. Shlemon.

As I am sure you anticipated, this letter is to indicate the driver license suspension for both people will go into effect as indicated in the notice of suspension. There will be no complaint against either person so long as they do not operate a vehicle on the public roads of this state or other jurisdictions. Otherwise, they will be subject to appropriate law enforcement action.

Sincerely,

Re: Oregon DMV action against:
David Justice, HvnDL #1303735
Ezra Shlemon, HvnDL #1191142

Greetings from the nation of Heaven. May the Grace and Peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. By the authority vested in Our Sovereign Lord Jesus Christ, we are empowered to maintain a system of records, license drivers, and title and register vehicles for the Kingdom of Heaven.

Your letter dated July 2nd, 1993, states that your office will suspend the driver license of David Justice, Oregon license #5744276; and Ezra Shlemon, Oregon license #5744653. For your information, we have on file for these two ambassadors, completed applications for a Heaven driver license, wherein they have declared that they are citizens of Heaven and have renounced allegiance with all foreign jurisdictions. Our records show they are in good standing. Would you please be kind enough to enlighten us on why your office is maintaining records on our residents?

You warned us that if our ambassadors operate a vehicle on the public roads of your state, that they will be subject to appropriate law enforcement action. We do not operate on the highways of your state, but rather travel upon the highways of the Kingdom of Heaven.

You threaten us with violence. We pray for your salvation.

In the name of Jesus Christ,

EMBASSY OF HEAVEN
