How To Be A True Christian - Lesson 7
by Wayne Blank
"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)
God's Seventh Law of Liberty
"Thou shalt not commit adultery." (Exodus 20:14 KJV)
When a child is born, there is no doubt what-so-ever as to who the mother is. But, as has been the case throughout all of human history, the identity of the father is sometimes less than certain. Sometimes the mother herself isn't sure, all as a result of a man and woman committing adultery or fornication. It is no coincidence that both of the original Hebrew words of the Scriptures, one (pronounced) mam-zare, translated as adultery in "You shall not commit adultery" of Exodus 20:14, and the other (pronounced) naw-af, translated as bastard in The King James Version (see also The King James Preface) of the Holy Bible (e.g. Deuteronomy 23:2 and Zechariah 9:6) literally mean the same thing, to alienate.
By the Biblical definition, an adulterer was a man who had illicit relations with a married or a betrothed woman, and such a woman was an adulteress, while illicit relations between a married man and an unmarried woman was fornication - all of which were a very serious offense in God's eyes:
"And the man that committeth adultery with another man's wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death" (Leviticus 20:10 KJV)
Spiritual adultery - idolatry, the worship of false gods, and apostasy - is also prohibited. Forever remaining spiritually faithful is ultimately what the Seventh Commandment is about:
"That they have committed adultery, and blood is in their hands, and with their idols have they committed adultery, and have also caused their sons, whom they bare unto me, to pass for them through the fire, to devour them." (Ezekiel 23:37 KJV)
