The Ten Commandments are NOT for Christians (Gospel of Jesus)

posted by joeland7, 07.17.2007

Are the Ten Commandments for Christians? If not who are they for?
Let us take a closer look at these commandments and see what God expects of his people. Religious leaders such as Pope Benedict XVI, Jack van Impe, Pat Robinson, James Dobson, TD Jakes, Oral Roberts, John Hagee, Billy Graham, and most pentecostal, full gospel and evangelical preachers are advocating the keeping of the Ten Commandments.

(1) Exodus 20:1 and God spoke all these words, saying:
vs.2 I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
vs.3 You shall have no other gods before Me.

The Creator of Heaven and earth is a jealous God He wants to be first and foremost in our lives What or whoever we put first in our lives is our god It could be money, stocks, sports, social position, job, spouse, children, religion, church, tradition, or self. Jesus said in Matt.22:37 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment.

(2) Ex.20:4 You shall not make for yourself a carved imageany likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; vs.5 you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, vs.6 but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.

The Second Commandment forbids using an image to represent the true God, or any false god. This commandment deals specifically with using physical images for worship or as representations of anything related to worship. This does not condemn the existence of statues or pictures in generalonly their use for worship The worship of idols, graven images (including the Virgin Mary, Saints Peter and all saints, Buddah, bowing down to Popes)is expressly forbidden and even blasphemies.

(3) Ex.20:7 You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.
Many people believe that this Commandment only applies to swearing But it applies explicitly to taking on the name of Christ but living and doing those things contrary to Christs love and natureIf I call myself a Christian but living according to the lust of the eye, lust of the flesh and the pride of life is taking His name in vain. The doctrine of eternal security or once saved always saved is a doctrine from the pits of hell and an invitation for breaking this commandment. The devil takes great pride in making a mockery of the name Christian
2 Cor. 11: 13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. vs.14 And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. vs.15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.

The Fourth Commandment completes the grouping of the commandments that instruct man in his relationship with his Creatorlove toward God.
(4) Ex. 20:8 Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. vs.9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, vs.10 but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. vs.11 For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.

God knew that His people would forget this commandment that is why He said remember The Sabbath was given to Adam and Eve during the creation week
Gen. 2:1-3 vs.1 Thus the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, were finished. vs.2 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. vs.3 Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work whichGod had created and made.

This commandment recognizes God as being the Creator. The fourth commandment requires man to worship God as the Creator on the Seventh Day. The ultimate desire of Lucifer is to be worship. The greatest conspiracy or hoax of all time deals with the Sabbath. Most professing Christians in Catholic, Evangelical, Full-Gospel, Baptist, Methodist, Pentecostal and other Protestant and non-denominational churches have been taught that Sunday is the day of worship and that the Sabbath has been change from the 7th day to the 1st day but this change is not found in the Bible. The Fourth Commandment is the all-important test commandment. How we keep it demonstrates to God our willingness to honor Him and walk in His ways. Ez. 20:20 hallow My Sabbaths, and they will be a sign between Me and you, that you may know that I am the LORD your God. Jesus said in Jn.14:14 If you love Me you will keep my commandments.1Jn.2:4 states He that saith ,I know Him and keep not His commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him

Is the truth in you my friend?

Ten Commandments Commission

We, the members of the Ten Commandments Commission and supporting people of faith, proclaim The Ten Commandments Day on the first Sunday in the month of May, commencing on Sunday, May Sixth of 2007.
Furthermore, we proclaim the Ten Commandments Day to be a day dedicated for the display, awareness, commemoration and celebration of the Decalogue which we know to be the divine foundation of the Judeo-Christian faith.
We, the members of the commission, serve as a cohesive group of spiritual leaders representing millions of followers who affirm the beauty and the uniqueness of our differences. We believe that rooted in the Ten Commandments is a Divine plan that transcends color and diversity in cultural expression, sanctions brotherhood of man and respects expressions in all of Gods children.
We, who serve as a council of leaders, are committed to utilizing our united passion to provide purpose and direction for reversing the enormous tide of immorality continuing to be released throughout the United States of America, and on all continents of the world. This unified voice will culminate annually on the Ten Commandments Day and provide for a united, global, spiritual platform based on the Ten Commandments. This platform will respond to the call echoed throughout creation for a true expression love, harmony and reconciliation among all nations, ethnic diversities and genders through education and rededication to the moral standard as given by our Loving Creator.
Therefore, we are calling on all community and spiritual leaders; churches, synagogues, fellowships, ministries, organizations and all who care about moral values, to celebrate the annual Ten Commandments Day by hosting local events in support of the Ten Commandments and what they represent.
Finally, we proclaim the need to heal the wounds of history through strategic and practical objectives, proactive love and obedience to the commands of God.
By signing this document, I hereby give my commitment of support to the ideals brought forth by the Ten Commandments Commission in the establishment of the annual Ten Commandments Day, and to the moral standard we acknowledge and seek to uphold by the grace of Almighty God.
