The Law

We typically think of the 10 commandments when we hear the phrase “The Law”, but there are plenty more commandments found in God’s Law, but for sake of time we will only focus on the Ten Commandments.  Now it seems people have many questions about the law, in terms of why the law was given, and can we get to Heaven by keeping the 10 commandments? First let us look at what the 10 commandments are:

God gave the Nation of Israel the 10 commandments through Moses on Mount Sinai.  These are found in the Book of Exodus in Chapter 20:

1.Thou shalt have none other gods before me (vs.3)

2.Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image (vs’s.4-6)

3.Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain (vs.7)

4.Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy (vs’s.8-11)

5.Honour thy father and thy mother (vs.12)

6.Thou shalt not kill (vs.13)

7.Thou shalt not commit adultery (vs.14)

8.Thou shalt not steal (vs.15)

9.Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neigbour (vs.16)

10.Thou shalt not covet (vs.17)

A) Now let’s look at some of the reasons why God gave us the 10 commandments:

1.To keep sin down {Galatians 3:19} “Wherefore then serveth the law?  It was added because of transgressions…” One of the reasons why God gave us the 10 commandments is to deter us from sinning. Just like when you see that there is a 55 mile an hour speed limit, you are less likely to go 80 miles an hour. Our laws in this nation are based upon the laws of God.  Atheists may tray and deny this, but it is a fact that our founding fathers used God’s commandments as the basis for law in our government, when God is feared and His laws are feared it makes for a great nation.  We as a nation have gone far away from God and His commandments these days.  Continue reading

DO YOU REALLY KNOW THE LORD?

The Tale of Two Kings

Romans 11:34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord?…..

Do you really know God? How he thinks? Why he does what he does?

Paul’s Aspiration his desire was to know God

Philippians 3:10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;

Better men than me have thought on these things and have come up empty.

Isaiah 55:8-9 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Most of them Philosophers worldly and Christian make the mistake of looking at God with a human mind-set

Why all the social ills Poverty Sickness Death Pain Suffering Crime War Inequality

Man wants to blame God for all of these things

The Key to knowing God is found not in our brains but in the word of God

God reveals himself to us in his word Continue reading
