When God gave us the 10 Commandments, and The Lord's Prayer, the Word of Salvation via the Gospel Message through Jesus Christ, and the Gift of the Holy Spirit when we accept Christ as our Head....Our Lord......He pretty much gave us all we need to live our temporary lives here on earth.  Of added value, as warnings, we were given the prophets in the Old Testament which were given prophecy that covered our time and beyond.   Mankind..... throughout the ages since God revealed Himself to them....has strived for personal power and gain, making something complicated out of that which is simple and in Jesus Christ....the only door to eternity because He was worthy to pay the price.  There is no church on earth today which has a door that can offer what Christ did....alone....on the cross.  Man is constantly trying to take his piece of glory for himself....put himself as something important in the midst of the door to salvation. 


That mankind believes that they can define God is the pinnacle of arrogance....and the antithesis of meek and humble.   It is enough for me that God has defined who I am (a lost dead sinner), and has provided a Sacrificial Lamb (Jesus Christ) to provide the means and the focus for my eternal life and personal homeward  journey of redemption and self discovery within God.  All glory belongs to God.


The first Believers did not have even have the Bible....they had the words of the prophets as recorded and placed in their gathering places, and as heard via family memorizations....and the words of Jesus Christ as heard in person, and as recorded by His Apostles, and spread by word of mouth.   After Christ was sacrificed they also had direct access to the Holy Spirit and the words the Apostles wrote down, inspired of God. In time many of these words were put together in the Bible.....not all the words written were included....but enough.....because we truly have The Holy Spirit within us as our teacher.


In hard times to come.....if I am unable to gather together with others (church)....I will still have my Bible.  If I lose my Bible....I will still have the Holy Spirit....and that wonderful Gift....I will never lose!!!!   It is my Leader, my Teacher, and my Guide.  It will bring me back home, an eternity in harmony, enjoyment and service to my Father.  In the mean time....wherever I am, the presence of the Holy Spirit will be there also, I can worship, I can learn of, I can serve, and I can love JHVH, thanks to my faith in Jesus Christ.  There is no higher authority here on earth than the Holy Spirit.  All who have that Holy Spirit have that authority and can be used by God to accomplish anything that God needs to be done....if they have submitted their will entirely to be under His.



GOD GAVE MANKIND THE LAW.  (Exodus 20:1-17)


THE TEN COMMANDMENTS  (God gave them in order of their importance.)  Obviously....God is first.


NOTE THAT THE FIRST FOUR COMMANDMENTS ARE ABOUT GOD AND HIS GLORY.  If you look at the first four commandments....they are totally ALL about how we are to love God with our hearts, soul and mind.


1.  We shall have no other gods before ME


2.  You shall not make idols to worship.....


3.  You shall not misuse MY name


4.  Observe the Sabbath day by keeping it Holy.    WHY? Click HERE to find out.


The seventh day is the last day....again we must stay Holy and not be deceived by that which is of the anti-christ.  Some would say that every day now is the Sabbath and we should keep every day Holy.   If we are indeed in the Latter times....that would be appropriate.  Jesus Christ is our Sabbath and, tho, our rest is ultimately found in Him, mankind receives a great benefit in keeping one day out of each week of days as a rest day.  It restores the mind, especially in this world we are in today which tries in every way to keep us from meditating on God's Word.   Many have throughout the ages been divided about which day of the week is the "seventh".  "Saturday" in the Roman language means "Seventh".  Sunday is the first day of the week, a great day for Sunday gathering and worship as Jesus resurrected on the First Day of the week.  My thoughts are that I want to continue out of respect for my Creator to rest on Saturdays in honor of the work HE put into making a place of Restoration for my spirit and soul.   For sure, upon HIS return as our Mighty King we will be resting in our Eternal Body within HIS Kingdom helping HIM do HIS Will upon all creation....including the Millennium Kingdom of 1,000 years that follows the WRATH.  I do know that even the land does better if we rest it every 7 years as God stated to man through his Old Testament Prophets.  There is no doubt in my mind that man also needs a day of rest after six days of labor.  (Note:  "6" is the sign of man.)  Man goes about man's business for six days, and God owns the 7th!  Interesting that the 7th seal opens into God's wrap up of things here on earth that have been under man, and the 7th trumpet announces His return, and the 7th Vial is the last Wrath which precedes our Kings 1,000 year rule of perfecting teaching, no longer clouded by the teachings of man.  John 14:21-He that hath My commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth Me: and he that loveth Me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest Myself to him.  It was not GOD who changed the Seventh Day.  I fear that changing this day and no longer resting on it, may be partaking in the Beast system, who will, it is written seek to change "times" and "law".  The 4th Commandment is a Law....and it is about "time"....the Seventh Day.




5. Honor your father and mother.....


(This fifth commandment, placed here in the middle, now transcends from the higher heavens to the earthly realm.....we entered this earth through our human father and mother.....with God supplying our spirit life.  On another level, God is our Father and He made us from the clay of the earth.   What perfection that God placed this one in the middle, after explaining how to honor His position as God, He transcends to the earthly level! )


Then comes the last five commandments which are all about how we are to love our neighbor as ourselves!  Everything God does is perfect, and is aligned perfect, and perfectly presented to mankind.  Just as He did when He gave us the Lords' Prayer.


6.  You shall not murder.  (Interesting that this is the 6th caused death to enter the world.  Another name for the Dragon is "Death".  The first event after man was cast out of Eden was that Cain slew his brother Abel.  Cain's heart was with the Dragon. )


7.  You shall not commit adultery.     (The dragon constantly encouraged and encourages mankind to commit adultery when it comes to who they worship.)                                   


8.  You shall not steal.  (The dragon attempts to steal God's children, God's Glory, and all things that are Gods.)


9.  You shall not give false testimony....  (The dragon is the father of all Liars.  Those who lie have the heart of the dragon.)


10.  You shall not covet.....  (This commandment covers everything else.  The dragon was the first to covet....God's position....wanting something more than what was assigned to him.  We all should be content with "our daily bread" and understand that all glory and good  that may come through us belongs to God and is loaned to man through Christ.)




Matthew 22:36-40

Then one of them, a lawyer, asked Him (Jesus) a question, testing Him, and saying, "Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?"  Jesus said to him,


"You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.  This is the first and great commandment.  And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.  On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets."
