How To Be A True Christian - Lesson 5

What Jesus Christ says to those who believe the Satanic lie that God's Law was "done away" by the sacrifice of the Lamb of God:

"Think not that I am come to destroy the Law" (Matthew 5:17 KJV)

What the Christian apostle John says to those who believe the Satanic lie that Christians don't have to obey God's Ten Commandments:

"And hereby we do know that we know Him, if we keep His Commandments. He that saith, I know Him, and keepeth not His Commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth His Word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in Him." (1 John 2:3-5 KJV)

After the return of Jesus Christ, everyone will be observing God's Ten Commandments, as made plain in this future reference to the Fourth Commandment, God's seventh-day Sabbath:

"And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before Me, saith The Lord" (Isaiah 66:23 KJV)

Christ's sacrifice was made for truly repentant people, those who live by God's Laws of Liberty, the Ten Commandments ("whoso looketh into the perfect Law of Liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed," James 1:25 KJV). Self-righteous, unrepentant people who refuse to obey God's Ten Commandments are not going to be saved - they are going to be incinerated in the lake of fire.

"Blessed are they that do His Commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie." (Revelation 22:14-15 KJV)

"For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith The Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. But unto you that fear My Name shall the sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith The Lord" (Malachi 4:1-3 KJV)

God's Fifth Law of Liberty

"Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which The Lord thy God giveth thee" (Exodus 20:12 KJV)

The first four of the Ten Commandments instruct how to recognize, worship and obey the only true God. The next six Commandments instruct how to live in peace with our fellow humans - beginning with parents (birth parents, adopted parents, or legal guardians - as it has been through all of human history), the first humans that we learn to be "people" with.

The Ten Commandments Violation of the Fifth Commandment was a capital offense:

"If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them: Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place; And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard. And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you" (Deuteronomy 21:18-21 KJV)

"And he that smiteth his father, or his mother, shall be surely put to death ... And he that curseth his father, or his mother, shall surely be put to death." (Exodus 21:15,17 KJV)

Honoring parents is not however a "one way street" - parents have a responsibility to conduct themselves so as to be worthy of honor:

"Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise; That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth. And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord." (Ephesians 6:1-4 KJV)

"The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him" (Ezekiel 18:20 KJV)

Even as He was in agony on the cross, Jesus Christ obeyed the Fifth Commandment by seeing to the care of His mother:

"Now there stood by the cross of Jesus His mother, and His mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus therefore saw His mother, and the disciple standing by, whom He loved, He saith unto His mother, Woman, behold thy son! Then saith He to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home." (John 19:25-27 KJV) (see also Aunt Mary?)

The Fifth Commandment, which deals with those who gave us physical life, also applies ultimately to how we may be born into spiritual life (see Born Again, How and When?), in which God is the Father, the Holy Spirit of God is the means of "spiritual conception," and the Church (as an entity, composed of potential, as yet unborn Children Of God - see People or Place?) is the mother:

"Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name" (Matthew 6:9 KJV)

"That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit." (John 3:6 KJV) (see Spiritual Conception)

"My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you ... But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all" (Galatians 4:19,26 KJV) (see Daughter of Zion)
