The Forgotten TEN..

It's interesting when we read the ten commandments, we are in a current day and time "mind set" that these things don't effect us anymore... This mind set, is wrong. The church in the same since look at the commandments and says, well I haven't kills, cheated, stole yep, IM GOOD. But... You could be wrong..... Think about it. 

Have you said you hated someone? If so, God's word says you have murdered them in your heart... Have you lusted over someone... then you have already committed the act.... By now many of you are checking the list again. What about church on Sunday, have you ever pushed it aside for one reason or another, just said well I'm not going today? I have a headache.. I have to much to do.. If I work today I can get some overtime, and I have bills to pay.. What happened to "Remembering and keeping the Sabbath" It's interesting that God is the first one to get pushed aside in our lives.... 

Sunday is a day of Worship, to the point God even says hey! You have SIX OTHER DAYS! We often wonder why things are going the way they are going in our lives, rethink where God is in your life, what is HIS position... You don't go to church over a headache but you go into work with one... (just being real here...) You go to work no feeling well, but you can't go to church when you don't feel well?.. 

If Christians, are not following the commandments then, in truth its no wonder why the schools, courts, and government offices are removing the Ten Commandants from there grounds.... 

What's a "god" in your life? "Thou shall have no other gods before me" What about money, your children, your job, social media, your spouse, a girlfriend? (JUST BEING REAL HERE AGAIN...) IF "IT" gets more of you than GOD does... its a "god" in your life....... 

We need to take a step back and revisit at these commandments, and the commandment of LOVE. As Christians, we are missing the mark. We are not loving one another, our friends or our enemies... We are not putting GOD first, and keeping his day. We are broken, and in desperate need of coming back to Jesus! 


Exodus 20 (KJV)

20 And 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 bondage.

Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

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.

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;

And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.

Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

10 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 maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

11 For in six days the Lord 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.

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.
