 The 10 commandments and the law of Christ 



Babylonian forms of worship  have crept  Into SOME Christian churches. This is ONE OF the greatest deceptions to befall mankind. Evil itself has rejoiced that many Christian DO NOT read the bible, and that the number of Atheists is on the rise. In many churches IDOLATRY is the norm, statues are worshipped, prayers are directed to dead people and to lifeless man made idols. IN THE NAME OF JESUS, RUN FROM IT. Moses was clear to the Israelites about IDOL worship, and Jesus confirmed it by saying in John 14:6: “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

Before I put scriptures I want to explore why atheist are on the rise? Well one of the reasons is that because many have started to realise the disparity between church dogmas and the law of Christ. Many non-believers say: If  the church that represents christianity tramples on the law of its own Holy book  why would I want to be part of such hypocrisy?

WELL, They are right! Why would anyone believe in God, his words in the bible and follow something completely different from what it is written in the Holy book? As a christian I am constantly faced with such question, and to  that I always say: I don’t like religion … Because GOD is beyond religion, the word of the LORD is perfect and truthful. He promises, he delivers, he calls us and he punishes the wicked.  ALL we are expected to do is give some LOVE back. Isn’t any relationship like this? GIVE AND TAKE? your spiritual relationship with GOD is no different.

So, if you truly Love God, but the dogmas of the church you go are against the Law of GOD, LEAVE it in the name of Jesus. He said in Matthew 18:20 “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” BUT If you are lucky and are part of a church that honours Go’d words 100%. Be blessed, but read the bible yourself and pray for understanding. Don’t just rely on what is fed to you Because  God wrote the word to speak directly to you, not only through others.

WHY OBEY God’s words? he delivers not in our time but in his time. So, it’s wise to remain FIRM regardless …. This is what happened to the impatient and Israelites of little faith

At the time of the Israelites, the way people thanked God for what they had received (freedom from slavery in Egypt) was by sacrificing animals. God also instructed that they build a temple and an ark, which would represent the covenant between God and the Israelites. Many years passed and people started to forget what GOD had done for them, they would complain of the hardship of living in the desert and would curse God, evil was slowly crippling into their hearts.  God saw the wickedness and ungratefulness. So, he told Moses that the generation that was freed would never see the promised land, because they did not trust God. So, the Israelites wandered the desert for 40 years.

The Israelites started to battle against the ancient tribes in order to posses their land, because God instructed them to do so. They were also told to kill every single human being who were living in such tribe.

WHY? Because this was the last chance for the descendants of nephilim  and their culture of worshipping many Gods, sacrificing human beings and defiling mankind, to be wiped out. As usual the Israelites did not hear God’s command and did not kill everyone but not only that, they allowed the survivors to live amongst them. Because of that, the wars for land ownership were a constant since ancient times, just like they are today.

Biblical truth about idolatry

exodus 20:22-26 — Idols and Altars

22 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Tell the Israelites this: ‘You have seen for yourselves that I have spoken to you from heaven: 23 Do not make any gods to be alongside me; do not make for yourselves gods of silver or gods of gold.

24 “‘Make an altar of earth for me and sacrifice on it your burnt offerings and fellowship offerings, your sheep and goats and your cattle. Wherever I cause my name to be honored, I will come to you and bless you. 25 If you make an altar of stones for me, do not build it with dressed stones, for you will defile it if you use a tool on it. 26 And do not go up to my altar on steps, or your private parts may be exposed.’

instructions to the Israelites ( AND US) before they conquest the lands God assigned to them.

Deuteronomy 8 Be careful to follow every command I am giving you today, so that you may live and increase and may enter and possess the land the Lord promised on oath to your ancestors. Remember how the Lord your God led you all the way in the wilderness these forty years, to humble and test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands. He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your ancestors had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord. Your clothes did not wear out and your feet did not swell during these forty years. Know then in your heart that as a man disciplines his son, so the Lord your God disciplines you.

Observe the commands of the Lord your God, walking in obedience to him and revering him. For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land—a land with brooks, streams, and deep springs gushing out into the valleys and hills; a land with wheat and barley, vines and fig trees, pomegranates, olive oil and honey; a land where bread will not be scarce and you will lack nothing; a land where the rocks are iron and you can dig copper out of the hills.

10 When you have eaten and are satisfied, praise the Lord your God for the good land he has given you. 11 Be careful that you do not forget the Lord your God, failing to observe his commands, his laws and his decrees that I am giving you this day. 12 Otherwise, when you eat and are satisfied, when you build fine houses and settle down, 13 and when your herds and flocks grow large and your silver and gold increase and all you have is multiplied, 14 then your heart will become proud and you will forget the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. 15 He led you through the vast and dreadful wilderness, that thirsty and waterless land, with its venomous snakes and scorpions. He brought you water out of hard rock. 16 He gave you manna to eat in the wilderness, something your ancestors had never known, to humble and test you so that in the end it might go well with you. 17 You may say to yourself, “My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me.” 18 But remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.

19 If you ever forget the Lord your God and follow other gods and worship and bow down to them, I testify against you today that you will surely be destroyed. 20 Like the nations the Lord destroyed before you, so you will be destroyed for not obeying the Lord your God.

 God warned them not to do the following

Deuteronomy 18

When you enter the land the Lord your God is giving you, do not learn to imitate the detestable ways of the nations there. 10 Let no one be found among you who sacrifices their son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, 11 or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. 12 Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord; because of these same detestable practices the Lord your God will drive out those nations before you. 13 You must be blameless before the Lord your God.

Even after all the instructions the Israelites turned wicked again by adopting the worshipping practices/ gods of their conquered people and because of that have endured many wars for land ownership since ancient times. They were warned that if they disobeyed horrible things would happen but they didn’t and Jews ended up scattered world wide with no land to call their own for quite a while. If you know the modern history of Jews, you know what happened to them until the creation of Israel in 1948.

Because the Israelites were disobedient and turned their back to God, the Jews were scattered amongst the nations of the world. Not because God sent them, but because they no longer had God’s protection. This is the difference between having God and not having GOD:  With GOD there’s order, without GOD chaos surely ensues eventually!

The Israelites turned their back to GOD, so they became  alone spiritually. Therefore, their enemies of the ancient times once again subdued  them. But, because God is great and merciful, he heard the cry out of the many people who still remained firm in their belief in God and firm in the rightful ways. He also saw that even the non- Jews who were born in bondage with the disecrate ways of the time practicing idolatry and commiting the most despiteful sins, still were not to be blamed, because they were born into bondage and lack of knowledge of spirituality  through GOD.

THIS IS WHERE the NEW ALLIANCE ENTERS: Jesus Christ, he is the Lamb, the one who is the last sacrifice to mankind.

“As for God, his way is perfect: The LORD’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him.” (psalm 18:30)

The 10 commandments and the law of Christ

After the Israelites were freed they stayed in the desert going from place to place in the mountains and in the desert camping for days on end or sometimes months. Moses would always speak to God and they would move when Moses was told so. This is when Moses drafted  God’s inspired 10 commandments.

20 And God spoke all these words:

I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.

“You shall have no other gods before[a] me.

“You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.

“You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.

“Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns. 11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

12 Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.

13 You shall not murder.

14 You shall not commit adultery.

15 You shall not steal.

16 “You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.

17 You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”

18 When the people saw the thunder and lightning and heard the trumpet and saw the mountain in smoke, they trembled with fear. They stayed at a distance 19 and said to Moses, “Speak to us yourself and we will listen. But do not have God speak to us or we will die.”

20 Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. God has come to test you, so that the fear of God will be with you to keep you from sinning.”

21 The people remained at a distance, while Moses approached the thick darkness where God was.

Idols and Altars

22 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Tell the Israelites this: ‘You have seen for yourselves that I have spoken to you from heaven: 23 Do not make any gods to be alongside me; do not make for yourselves gods of silver or gods of gold.

24 “‘Make an altar of earth for me and sacrifice on it your burnt offerings and fellowship offerings, your sheep and goats and your cattle. Wherever I cause my name to be honored, I will come to you and bless you. 25 If you make an altar of stones for me, do not build it with dressed stones, for you will defile it if you use a tool on it. 26 And do not go up to my altar on steps, or your private parts may be exposed.’

 

LAW OF CHRIST @ luke 10:27 – ”‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
