John 14:15-16, “If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.”

One of the most important messages given by the Lord Jesus Christ is that of keeping the original Law of Moses as told in Exodus 20:1-17. Many Christians believe today that all we have to do is believe in Christ and prosperity, miracles and blessings will overflow in one’s life. This may occur or may not occur, but one of the most overlooked aspects is the original Law given to man many years before the Savior came to Earth. God commanded man to 1. Have no other gods before me. This is the number one law that so many people do not keep, instead many will pay homage to celebrities, athletes or Pastors before God the Father not even knowing what they are doing. Christians must first seek God FIRST everyday before sports news celebrity gossip or our own desires. We must always keep a godly mindset before all things. 2. Worship of Graven Images plays a major part in the world today namely with items like cellphones, Ipads, Game Systems and other items in popular culture. I know many people feel totally lost without their cell phone and never feel that way when they forget to pray to the Father!

The only one we need to be in constant communication with to follow His Law. 3. Not taking the Lord’s name in vain, has become second nature to many, due to a acceptance of loose morals in today’s society. The name of the Lord is still to be reverend as YHVH Jehovah Father God, the great “I am.” 4. The Sabbath, has become misconstrued in American Society of changing the day to Sunday instead of Saturday as God originally intended. Man does not have the right to change the mind of God but to adhere to His Word. 5. Honoring our Parents. We as a society no longer follow this commandment because many parents do not hold their parental rights in high regard as in the past, instead choosing to be “Yes,” men and women to children’s desires.

Disciplining children is still the right tool for today’s youth and teaches them to follow the Law of our Lord as well. Broken homes also add to this lack of respect today’s youth have for parents. When a Father or Mother are not guiding a child in the right path together as One, the Enemy has successfully destroyed the original image of man that God crated. 6. Murder is still a crime against God unless in self defense of oneself, Exodus 22:2. 7. Thou shall not commit adultery, in the sex filled world of entertainment the sinful man or woman will find it very hard to resist temptation as it relates to the flesh. 8.Thou shall not steal pertains to even the smallest of items that many Believer’s do from human nature that our conscious does not even record, i.e “sampling” fruit at the grocery store or lifting items from a office is all stealing inadvertently. 9. Thou shall not bear false witness against thou neighbor. This is lying or slandering someone we know in order to discredit them. This can always be seen in legal court rooms in which many good people argue wrong doing on the part of someone they know. 10. Covetousness of neighbors goods. Many Believer’s desire what is not theirs, but belong to their neighbors which can include money, cars, house and even a wife or husband.

All are grave sins in the eyes of YHVH. The above infractions are shown that many still today transgress the Law of God. We must still keep the Commandments in order to be made right in the eyes of God, even once being Born Again through Christ jesus, who is the only only who never broke any of the above Laws of God even in the smallest detail. Once we accept Jesus, God’s Holy Spirit will keep Us within the Commandment and in His perfect will Romans 8. Adding also the Law of Love given by Jesus in John 13:34-35, “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye love one another. Shalom…
