10 Commandments Part 2 - Final

10 Commandments Part 2:

Firstly sorry it’s taken so long for me to post this; it’s been a very busy few weeks and had lost my train of thought. But by Gods Grace, I am back and rearing to go again.

Ok, So what I need for people to get clear with is that there are 2 Laws referred to in the Bible. 1 being the Law of God (10 commandments) and the Law of Moses, a handwritten box that was based on the Law of God, but IS NOT the Law of God. Look here where Paul is referring to 2 Laws in the following passages:

Galatians 3:10-13, he referred to the Law of Moses – in Romans 3:31 and 7:12, he referred to the Ten Commandment Law of God, established in our hearts by faith.

Some people claim to be “New Testament Christians,” and that the New Testament cancelled the teachings or overruled the teaching of the Old. Paul says God inspired “All Scripture” to equip us for good works, so why would God out rule his own inspirations?

Christ told his disciples, “these are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Me” – LK 24:44.

If we throw out the Old Testament, we can’t know that Moses wrote the Book of the Law (law of Moses) or that he recorded approximately 640 separate ordinances in his own handwriting. Without this understanding, how could we begin to appreciate the “handwriting of ordinances” nailed to the cross was the Law of Moses? How could we learn that God’s moral law – the Ten Commandments – is eternal and the only definition of sin in the Bible?

To simple put it – the Law of Moses as merely a lesson book to prepare God’s people for the time when Christ would come to bring reformation. The book of the Covenant and the Book of the Law are one and the same thing! 2 Kings 22:8 says the high priest found the “book of the law in the house of the Lord” – when King Josiah assembled the nation and read to them all the words of the Book, he referred to it as the Book of the Covenant.

Lets sum up what we know about the Law of Moses (which was nailed to the Cross and NOT the 10 Commandments of God)

- The law of Moses was Written in Moses’ own Hand-writing.
- The Mosaic Law contained civil laws and ceremonial ordinances.
- It was written on parchment scroll and called the “Book of the Law” or Book of the Covenant”
- It contained curses against those who did not obey the works of the Law of Moses.
- The book of the Law was placed on the side of the ark – as a witness against Israel.
- The Law of Moses was symbolic and temporary.
- The Law of Moses was the Old Covenant contract made with Israel.
- The Book of the Law embraced the Ten Commandments as the central part of the covenant.

So when the bible / churches / society refer to the law in which was nailed to the cross, it was the above – Moses Law and not the 10 commandments of God!

Since God’s Ten Commandment were in place before the Law of Moses, we can conclude that Moses’ Law was added because God’s Moral law had been violated and this is what was removed (nailed to the cross).

If you turn your bible pages into Revelation this passage will now make sense as to the importance of keeping the 10 Commandments: “And the dragon (Satan) was enraged with the woman (church), and he went and made war with the rest of her (the church’s) offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ” (Rev 12:17)

You see in the final show down – it’s those who are KEEPING his 10 commandments that Satan is angry with…..why? Satan knows that if we were to break one of the commandments then it’s the same as breaking them all!

“Do you think that I came to destroy the Law of the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven” (Mathew 5:17-19)

So what does it all boil down too? Well I have met many Christians after seeing all this information still say that Worshipping on a Sunday instead of holding the Sabbath (commandment 4) ok as they say that Christ died for this very reason –I say how can you say this will all this overwhelming information from the same Bible I read? This is vitally important that you KNOW in your hearts that the 10 Commandments are from God, always have been, are and always will be. They are God’s nature / God’s past / God’s present and /God’s Future – Eternal! You can plainly see that when society have taken these out what the consequences are – just look outside your window! Look at the violence, look at the diseases! Now – bringing the focus now till the end times – why do you think the Dragon is so upset and makes war with us? Well we know the truth about the 10 Commandments and we know that holding the Sabbath is a delight and indeed and Law! By doing this, this is a sign between us and God, whereas those who do not, are not for God! = powerful truth – God says that by breaking his laws is a Sin! Those who sin are not welcome in his presence – so Satan is not Angry but very happy that you do not hold the Sabbath as you are breaking the Law of God and are sinning! So Do yourselves a favor do a study on the Book of Daniel, and the Book of Revelations so that this all makes sense in the end times!

“Surely My Sabbaths you shall keep, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the LORD who sanctifies you. You shall keep the Sabbath, therefore, for it is holy to you” EX 31:13-14

Let’s talk a bit more on the Sabbath (Saturday) and Sunday.

“if you turn away your foot from the Sabbath, from doing your pleasure on My Holy Day, and call the Sabbath a delight, the hold day of the LORD honorable…Then you shall delight yourself in the LORD..” IS 58:13-14)

“And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. The God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and make” (Gen 2:2-3)

In the Roman Empire, the first day of the week (Sunday) was called “the Lord’s [Emperor’s] Day” because Sunday was the day the emperor received his treasury payments. Sun-wor-shipping pagans also celebrate Sunday as “the venerable day of the Sun”

The Romans had banished john to the lonely isle of Patmos for his testimony of Jesus. Do you think John would acknowledge Sunday, the Lord’s Day honoring the Roman Emperor or the Day of the Sun, as the day of his Lord? John kept the Sabbath with Jesus. He knew God called the Seventh-day Sabbath “MY HOLY DAY.”

Many people think Sunday is called “the Lords Day” because Christ was resurrected on the first day of the week. It’s obvious that Christians eventually labeled Sunday as such. But that didn’t occur until sometime in the last part of the second century – at least seventy-five years after John wrote the book of Revelation.

The scriptures defining a day the God calls His own refer to the seventh day, never the first. I challenge you to study this topic in depth. If you find any biblical evidence contrary to what I have mentioned , please let me know as I cannot find a single Bible text to suggest Sunday is the Lord’s day!

Five of the eight bible references to the “first day of the week” (Mt 28:1; MK16:2; Mk 16:9; LK 24:1; JN 20:1) correspond with the day when Christ’s women disciples returned to His tomb on resurrection morning. None of them mention that you should hold this as a worship day!

It’s interesting to note that after the crucifixion, these devoted disciples of Christ first “rested on the Sabbath according to the commandment” (Lk 23:56). Although they were anxious to anoint His dead body with the spices and fragrant oils, they waited from late Friday afternoon to early Sunday morning to return to His grave. They obviously knew the Sabbath commandment wasn’t abolished on the cross!

It is no secret! The Catholic Church claims to have transferred the sacredness of the seventh-day Saturday Sabbath to Sunday. “Of course the Catholic Church claims that the change was her act. And the act is the mark of her ecclesiastical power and authority in religious matters” (Faith of our Fathers, P.14, C.F Thomas, Chancellor of Cardinal Gibbons). Does the Papal system have the power to change God’s commandments? This is where your church instituted worshiping on a Sunday!

It’s amazing that of all the commandments, the 4th starts with the word Remember! This must mean that the Sabbath already existed when God wrote the table of stone at Sinai…. It wasn’t just created for the Jews / or for us while on earth – it is PART of God and his love and his reflection and will STILL be there in the new heavens and new earth!

Well, I believe it boils down to this – which was stated over a hundred years ago by the Catholic Church:

“…the challenge issued by Rome over 100 years ago remains: Either the Catholic Church is right, or the Seventh Day Adventists are right. There can be no other choice”

Who is more accurate with the bible? It’s overwhelming that the Adventists have never drifted from the word of God but the Catholics have changed God’s law!!! That is very dangerous to erase a law written in God’s own hand! Well they have bigger ideas – keeping people on the Sunday instead of the Sabbath, why? Read Daniel / Revelations or the other parts of my Blog to see the full picture – this is why Satan is angry at the Adventists who hold the Sabbath as we are holding the 10 commandment dear to us!

In fact, this is Satan’s strategy to cause separation between God and man. Do you see how Satan is trying to establish his mark of authority by exalting a counterfeit over the true Sabbath of God’s word? This is pure DECEPTION and no better for him but to use the Biggest “Christian” church to deceive millions into the Mark of the Beast!

I keep the 10 commandments not because I have to, it because I want to! That is because I have accepted that Jesus Christ is the only Son of God, who died on the Cross so that I can have eternal life with him and the Father! I hold the Sabbath as it’s a true Delight! God gave me a day of Rest, which is holy, pure and in his name made for us, and enjoy every last minute of them! AMEN!
