It is impossible to put too much emphasis on the
Commandments of IaHUeH.
They are how we
know if we truly Love IaHUeH,
if we don't Love IaHUeH then we had better fear IaHUeH and Obey Him, or we will die.
"And IaHUeH declared unto you His covenant, which He commanded you to perform, even Ten Commandments; and He wrote them upon two tables of stone."
"By this we know that we love the children of IaHUeH, when we love IaHUeH, and keep His commandments. For this is the love of IaHUeH, that we keep His commandments: and His commandments are not grievous."
In the knowing of the Law of IaHUeH, we find instruction.
It is in the doing of the Law of IaHUeH that we find life.
The knowing is represented by the head and heart.
The doing is represented by the hands.
Love is what we do! IaHUeH gave us two hands.
The one hand represents our love for IaHUeH.
The other hand represents our love for our neighbours.
IaHUeH also gave us ten digits (fingers and thumbs).
Surely if we broke our thumb...
it would put our whole hand out of commission.
(the thumb) We have no mighty one but IaHUeH. Making anything more important than IaHUeH leads to sin.
(pointer) We don't worship our own creations or imaginations.
(middle) IaHUeH's Name is exalted, we revere its importance.
(ring) We keep the seventh day that IaHUeH set aside for rest.
(pinkie) And by doing all of these things we truly do, honor our father and mother.
(pinkie) We don't murder them.
(ring) Realizing that sex is a special gift to be shared only within the covenant of matrimony, we do no adultery.
(middle)We do not steal.
(pointer) We tell the truth.
(thumb) We do not desire something (or body) so much that we don't care what we have to do to get it. (for instance transgress the other Commandments) Coveting is also against the first and second.
And Elohim spake all these words, saying,
I am IaHUeH thy Elohim, which have brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.Thou shalt have no "mighty ones" before Me.
Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven idol, 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 IaHUeH thy Elohim am a jealous Elohim, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me; And showing Mercy unto thousands of them that love Me, and keep My commandments.
Thou shalt not take away the Name of IaHUeH thy Elohim to bring it to nought, for IaHUeH will not hold him guiltless that taketh away His Name to bring it to nought.
Remember the Shabbat-day, to keep it Set Apart to IaHUeH. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the shabbat of IaHUeH, thy Elohim: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy man-servant, nor gates:thy maid-servant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy For in six days IaHUeH made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore IaHUeH blessed the Shabbat-day, and set it apart.
Honour thy father and thy mother; that thy days may be long upon the land which IaHUeH thy Elohim giveth thee.
Thou shalt not commit murder.
Thou shalt not commit adultery.
Thou shalt not steal.
Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his man-servant, nor his maid-servant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's
This is IaHUeH's Covenant that He made with His people IeShRaEL, after He delivered them out of bondage to Egypt (a worldly government) and servitude to man. That if we would obey Him and keep His Commandments He would bless us and be our Elohim.
In the first commandment IaHUeH tells us not to have any elohim before Him. We customarily translate "elohim" when not refering to IaHUeH as "mighty ones".
Strongs' definition is:
193 'uwl (ool);
from an unused root meaning to twist, i.e. (by implication) be strong; the body (as being rolled together); also powerful:
352 'ayil (ah'-yil);
from the same as 193; properly, strength; hence, anything strong; specifically a chief (politically); also a ram (from his strength); a pilaster (as a strong support); an oak or other strong tree:
410 'el (ale);
shortened from 352; strength; as adjective, mighty; especially the Almighty (but used also of any deity):
433 'elowahh (el-o'-ah;
rarely (shortened) 'eloahh (el-o'-ah); probably prolonged (emphat.) from 410; a deity or the Deity:
430 'elohiym (el-o-heem');
plural of 433; gods in the ordinary sense; but specifically used (in the plural thus, especially with the article) of the supreme G-d; occasionally applied by way of deference to magistrates; and sometimes as a superlative:
We take exception to the use of the word "God" to describe the Allmighty. His NAME is IaHUeH, He is our Elohim we are His people. Not only is "god" used rather indiscriminately by the people of the world for their idols and deified men; but it is also strikingly similar to Strong's definition:
1413 gadad (gaw-dad');
a primitive root [compare 1464]; to crowd; also to gash (as if by pressing into):
KJV-- assemble (selves by troops), gather (selves togetherself, in troops), cut selves.
1464 guwd (goode); a primitive root [akin to 1413]; to crowd upon, i.e. attack:
KJV-- invade, overcome.
1409 gad (gawd);
from 1464 (in the sense of distributing); fortune: -troop.
1408 Gad (gad);
a variation of 1409; Fortune, a Babylonian deity:
KJV-- that troop.
God = deity of fortune (mammon), and the fortification of troops.
This would explain the similarity of the words "fortune" and "fortify/fortress" Latin, fortis. Also the similarity between "money/monetary" and "munitions", Latin moneta: Which according to the Oxford English Dictionary was
"originally the name of a goddess (in classical times regarded as identical with Juno), in whose temple at Rome, money was coined, hence, a mint, money."
|The god of this world is the adversary Satan.|
|We worship and obey IaHUeH.|
Exodus Chapter Nineteen 5-8 Now therefore, if ye will obey My voice indeed, and keep My covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto Me above all people: for all the earth is Mine: And ye shall be unto Me a kingdom of priests, and a Set Apart nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Ieshrael.
And Mosheh came and called for the elders of the people, and laid before their faces all these words which IaHUeH commanded him.
And all the people answered together, and said, All that IaHUeH hath spoken we will do. And Mosheh returned the words of the people unto IaHUeH.
Leviticus 25:55 For unto Me the children of Ieshrael are servants; they are My servants whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt: I am IaHUeH your Elohim.
Though the covenant was made with IeShRaEL collectively, it is the one on one agreement between IaHUeH and the individual, that really counts. That if you will choose to obey IaHUeH's Law, He will choose you, and separate you out of bondadge to the world of sin, confusion, and worldly governments (kingdoms); into the Kingdom of IaHUeH, where He will provide for, protect, and give understanding.
IaHUeH is my shepherd I shall not want
Leviticus Chapter Twenty-Six 1-45 Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am IaHUeH your Elohim.
Ye shall keep My shabbats, and reverence My Set Apart place I am IaHUeH.
If ye walk in My statutes, and keep My commandments, and do them;
Then I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.
And your threshing shall reach unto the vintage, and the vintage shall reach unto the sowing time: and ye shall eat your bread to the full, and dwell in your land safely.
And I will give shalom in the land, and ye shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid: and I will rid evil beasts out of the land, neither shall the sword go through your land.
And ye shall chase your enemies, and they shall fall before you by the sword.
And five of you shall chase an hundred, and an hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight: and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword.
For I will have respect unto you, and make you fruitful, and multiply you, and establish My covenant with you.
And ye shall eat old store, and bring forth the old because of the new.
And I will set My tabernacle among you: and My soul shall not abhor you.
And I will walk among you, and will be your Elohim, and ye shall be My people.
I am IaHUeH your Elohim, which brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, that ye should not be their bondmen; and I have broken the bands of your yoke, and made you go upright.
But if ye will not hearken unto Me, and will not do all these commandments;
And if ye shall despise My statutes, or if your soul abhor My judgments, so that ye will not do all My commandments, but that ye break My covenant:
I also will do this unto you; I will even appoint over you terror, consumption, and the burning ague, that shall consume the eyes, and cause sorrow of heart: and ye shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it.
And I will set My face against you, and ye shall be slain before your enemies: they that hate you shall reign over you; and ye shall flee when none pursueth you.
And if ye will not yet for all this hearken unto Me, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins.
And I will break the pride of your power; and I will make your heaven as iron, and your earth as brass:
And your strength shall be spent in vain: for your land shall not yield her increase, neither shall the trees of the land yield their fruits.
And if ye walk contrary unto Me, and will not hearken unto Me; I will bring seven times more plagues upon you according to your sins.
I will also send wild beasts among you, which shall rob you of your children, and destroy your cattle, and make you few in number; and your highways shall be desolate.
And if ye will not be reformed by Me by these things, but will walk contrary unto Me;
Then will I also walk contrary unto you, and will punish you yet seven times for your sins.
And I will bring a sword upon you, that shall avenge the quarrel of My covenant: and when ye are gathered together within your cities, I will send the pestilence among you; and ye shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy.
And when I have broken the staff of your bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall deliver you your bread again by weight: and ye shall eat, and not be satisfied.
And if ye will not for all this hearken unto Me, but walk contrary unto Me;
Then I will walk contrary unto you also in fury; and I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins.
And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat.
And I will destroy your high places, and cut down your images, and cast your carcases upon the carcases of your idols, and My soul shall abhor you.
And I will make your cities waste, and bring your sanctuaries unto desolation, and I will not smell the savour of your sweet odours.
And I will bring the land into desolation: and your enemies which dwell therein shall be astonished at it.
And I will scatter you among the heathen, and will draw out a sword after you: and your land shall be desolate, and your cities waste.
Then shall the land enjoy her shabbats, as long as it lieth desolate, and ye be in your enemies' land; even then shall the land rest, and enjoy her shabbats.
As long as it lieth desolate it shall rest; because it did not rest in your shabbats, when ye dwelt upon it.
And upon them that are left alive of you I will send a faintness into their hearts in the lands of their enemies; and the sound of a shaken leaf shall chase them; and they shall flee, as fleeing from a sword; and they shall fall when none pursueth.
And they shall fall one upon another, as it were before a sword, when none pursueth: and ye shall have no power to stand before your enemies.
And ye shall perish among the heathen, and the land of your enemies shall eat you up.
And they that are left of you shall pine away in their iniquity in your enemies' lands; and also in the iniquities of their fathers shall they pine away with them.
If they shall confess their iniquity, and the iniquity of their fathers, with their trespass which they trespassed against Me, and that also they have walked contrary unto Me;
And that I also have walked contrary unto them, and have brought them into the land of their enemies; if then their uncircumcised hearts be humbled, and they then accept of the punishment of their iniquity:
Then will I remember My covenant with Ia'aqob, and also My covenant with Ietschaq, and also My covenant with Abraham will I remember; and I will remember the land.
The land also shall be left of them, and shall enjoy her shabbats, while she lieth desolate without them: and they shall accept of the punishment of their iniquity: because, even because they despised My judgments, and because their soul abhorred My statutes.
And yet for all that, when they be in the land of their enemies, I will not cast them away, neither will I abhor them, to destroy them utterly, and to break My covenant with them: for I am IaHUeH their Elohim.
But I will for their sakes remember the covenant of their ancestors, whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the heathen, that I might be their Elohim: I am IaHUeH.
It is more than apparent that IeShRaEL ended up breaking their promise, forsaking the Laws of the Covenant, or the world wouldn't be in such a state today. IaHUeH all ways has, is in the process of, and all ways will, keep His promises to us.
