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 pure....faith 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
THE TEN COMMANDMENTS
(God gave them in order of their importance.) Obviously....God is
NOTE THAT THE FIRST FOUR COMMANDMENTS ARE ABOUT GOD AND
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
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
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
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
6. You shall not
murder. (Interesting that this is
the 6th commandment.....man 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
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.)
COMMANDMENT OF ALL:
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
"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."
