Go And Sin No More
Jesus Christ was "the LORD God" Who delivered the people of the Exodus (see Christ The Creator and 'Before Abraham Was, I AM'). The Messiah gave humanity The Ten Commandments. The Messiah put to death those Who disobeyed Him, back then, just as He will do in the future time of Judgment (see Could Christ Return Tonight?).
"10:1 Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea [see also Why Through The Sea?]; 10:2 And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; 10:3 And did all eat the same spiritual meat; 10:4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.
"Natural brute beasts ... Having eyes full of adultery ... They which do such things shall not inherit the Kingdom of God"
One of the most well-known incidents recorded in Bible History is that of a woman who was caught in the act of adultery - and who was about to be stoned to death. Jesus rescued the woman from death simply by letting her accusers know that He knew the Truth about them - and perhaps their own involvement with that very same woman.
"8:1 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives. 8:2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them. 8:3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery [see Thou shalt not commit adultery to understand how the Commandment applies ultimately to spiritual adultery]; and when they had set her in the midst, 8:4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. 8:5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou? 8:6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him.
The Savior rescued the woman, not so that she could continue her life of sin, but so that she would have her opportunity to repent - and to truly live a life according to God's Word. She was given her awareness, and her warning. She was rescued from hypocritical human "judges" - but there will be no rescue from the Messiah's Judgment, if she thereafter refused to repent and obey God's Word.
The apostle Paul warned that unrepentant, arrogantly-immoral people will not inherit the Kingdom of God.
"5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 5:20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 5:21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
The apostle Peter explained how those who flagrantly commit adultery often flagrantly commit adultery with God's Word as well. They will, while deaf to all others who tell them the truth, search until they find some erroneous "teacher" who tells them what they want to hear, thereby both "sporting themselves with their own deceivings."
"2:12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;
