The Ten Commandments
The Ten Commandments and TORAH--( OUR INSTRUCTION) THE WORD ''LAW'',-- IS A POOR WORD USED FOR TRANSLATION
DEUTERONOMY 11:1--''Therefore thou shalt love the LORD thy God, and keep his charge, and his statutes, and his judgments, and his commandments, alway.
LETS BE CLEAR EXODUS 12:49--""One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among you.
THERE ARE NO SEPERATE LAWS AND COMMANDMENTS. FOR DIFFERENT PEOPLE YAH'S LAWS APPLY TO EVERYONE, BOTH JEWS AND GENTILES.
REVELSTION 3:8 -"I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, (logos..His words -all He has said) and hast not denied my name.
1 JOHN 2:3-4 And hereby we do know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments .4--'He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him'
17--''Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.'' 18--''For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or (Greek #2762) one stroke of a letter (tittle) ''shall in no'' wise pass from the law, till (Greek #1096) everything should happen---(all be fulfilled). 19--''Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least-(same as Greek mikros, from which we get 'micro') in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven''. 20 -For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
People have forgotten and misread; The NEW Covenant ---THE Promises of the Father--- accomplished by Messiah The Saviour. OUR REDEMPTION FROM SIN PAID FOR BY MESSIAH--
MESSIAH FOREVER DESTROYED THE curses OF BROKEN LAWS a nd the DEBT AND JUDGEMENT HE BORE--OWED BY Mmankind to the Heavenly Father, MESSIAH ALSO MADE POSSIB LE THE BELIEVERS ENTRANCE INTO THE HOLY OF HOLIES. MESSIAH DID NOT MAKE CHANGES to the Commandments, The Ordinances, or any of the other Laws.
ROMANS 10:4__::IT WAS SAID IN THE KJV THAT MESSIAH IS THE ''END OF THE LAW''__WRONG LEANING, USED BY SCRIBES TO CONFUSE PEOPLE...THE WORD ''END'' IB THE GREEK WORD: ""TELOS''__STRONGS 5056 --MEANING __""THE AIM --THE PURPOSE---THE EVENT, IN OTHER WORDS THE '''GOAL'' OF THE LAW, THE TORAH BEING USED TO LEAD TO MESSIAH -MESSIAH WAS THE LIVING TORAH. AS MESSIAH SAID -- HE DID NOT COME TO ABOLISH THE LAW -BUT TO FULFIL--(FILL IT UP) MATTHEW 5:17-20 MESSIAH EXPANDED THE LAW-SHOWING US SIN BEGINS AT THE HEART'S DOOR .MURDER COMMITED BY HATRED, ADULTERY BY LUST IN THE HEART/MIND
In essence the Ten Commandments are a ""MARRAIGE"" Contract/Covenant: the Marrage License having been given to Moses on Mount Sinai. This being done in PREPARATION for the ''Bride'' of the Future Messiah, so that she could make herself ready while on this earth, to one day meet her Heavenly ''Perfect Love'' who would give His very life for her.. The people with Moses saw the Mighty Power of YAHVAH, and were afraid, after hearing all the thunderings and noise, even though the Almighty invited them to come up and commune with Him. So they elected Moses to be the Mediator and Spokesman. The Almighty Father wrote that Marraige Contract for Israel along with all other Nations Tribes and Tongues who would one day honor, believe in, and Follow Messiah
''And YAH (G-d) spake all these words, saying,
2 I am the YAH THY ELOHIM, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the YAH THY ELOHIM am a jealous ELOHIM, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
7 Thou shalt not take the name of the YAH THY ELOHIM in vain; for the YAH will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the YAH THY ELOHIM: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
11 For in six days YAH made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
13 Thou shalt not kill. (murder)
14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.
15 Thou shalt not steal.
16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's.
READ JEREMIAH 31: 31-34
Revelation 22:14? “Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.” (THE NEW JERUSALEM)
WE DO NOT DEFINE ''GOOD WORKS''___ONLY THE '''TORAH'' --WRITTEN BY THE FATHER GIVEN TO MOSE CAN TELL US WHAT '''''GOOD WORKS''' ARE ACCEPTABLE TO OUR HEAVENLY FATHER. THE TORAH IN THE OLD COVENANT IS THE SAME INDER THE NEW COVENANT, BUT MADE BETTER BY BETTER PROMISES AND MADE EFFECTUAL BY MESSIAH. BELIEVERS KEEP AND ESTABLISH THE COMMANDMENTS -- REFERENCES --- JAMES CHAPTER 2 ROMANS 3:31---CHAPTERS 7-8
IN HUMBLE OBEDIENCE
