The Ten Commandments and A Holy Warning=====December 08,2018
The Ten Commandment A Holy Warning Dec 08,2018 2:20AM I was awakened to get up and begin prayer and in the middle of that time I was once moretaken up to a classroom setting with young children and other adults….. Jesus was the teacher and I knew He was welcoming us and that this would be an importantdiscussion…..It was also impressed upon me that Jesus was speaking in Aramaic and as He walked around the room,He said He was going to explain to us why the Ten Commandments was important and why they were never done away with…..He spoke with such authority and I want to share with you now as we all promised we would share this with others. Jesus explained that the Ten Commandments were very important for all time,not just in Moses time,they were made for a reason,to keep order in the land,to keep harmony between mankind,to show and exhibit the believer’s walk,and how because of sin and rebellion and lack of repentance ,we now have tried to tear apart what is right,what is good,what will stand all time.,because it is truth and where there is truth there is liberty….. Note:Jesus was speaking in Aramaic,but we were able to understand and translate to paper in English.Jesus continued in Aramaic and we interpreted in English.Here is the Scripture in Exodus 20:1-17 (KJV) c/f Deut 5:6-21And God spake,all these words saying:I am the Lord thy God which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt,out of the house of bondageThou shalt have no other God’s before me.(meaning no false deities such as a person,place or thing.,or worship false idols.) Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image,or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above,or that is in the earth beneath,or that is in the water under the earth.Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them,nor serve them:for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God,visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.(meaning ,making no pictures,statues,sacrifices to foreign gods.nor does He compete with other gods.
And showing mercy unto thousands of them that love Me, and keep My commandmentsThou shalt not take the name of thy God in vain,for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh His name in vain.(meaning ,any cuss or fowl language with the usage of God or any names of God or used in any frivoless manner or speech)
Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy.Six days shalt thou labor,and do all thy work.But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God:in it thou shalt not do any work,thou,nor thy son,nor thy daughter,thy manservant,nor thy cattle,nor thy stranger that is within thy gates.For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth,the sea,and all that in them is,and rested the seventh day,wherfore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.Honor thy father and thy mother:that thy may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.(meaning,rest in the Lord as Sabbath was made for man…..to set aside time with no interference and relax and spend time in the presence of the Lord.)Thou shalt not kill.(Meaning,to harm anyone deliberately without cause or taking matters into your own hands..) Thou shalt not commit adultery.(meaning sex outside marriage covenant,any kind.even thinking in your heart ,it is called “spiritual adultry”) Thou shalt not steal.(meaning,taking anything that does not belong to you without permission) Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.(Meaning,false accusations,heresay.) Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife,nor his manservant,nor his maidservant,nor his ox,nor his ass,nor anything that is thy neighbors. (meaning begging,thinking,canjoling ,wishing ,competing with anything your neighbor hass.) The Ten Commandments was NOT done away with…Rather when the Law was fulfilled as in Jesus came ……The commandments are our lifestyle and example of how to live.The wordis our lifeline……And who kept the Ten Commandments perfectly,none other than Jesus Himself. He examplified and exhibited all the Commandments in the way He loved when He was on earth.Please understand there are Scriptures for both the Old and New Testaments of the Ten Commandments…..still in affect today…… God bless youBette Stevens PS Please Understand that this has nothing to do with following all of the Lae,since we know Jesus,Himself,fullfilled it by His sacrifice,however ,the commandments were kept and given as stepping stone to holy living.Shalom!!!!!!!
