Psalm 112: The Christian Ten Commandments
"Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD, that delighteth greatly in His Commandments"
The "LORD God" (see The Identity Of The LORD God) was sent by God the Father to do the Work of Creation (see In The Beginning Was The Word and The Christian Universe). Before being born as the human known as Jesus of Nazareth (see also The Kinsfolk Of Jesus Of Nazareth), the LORD God was known to all of the righteous people of Bible history (e.g. see The LORD's Seed Covenants With The Two Men Of Iraq and The Origin Of Israel).
The LORD God led the Israelites in the Exodus - after instituting the Passover that was ultimately about Him (see The First Passover).
"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; 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. 10:5 But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness.
As plainly stated in the verses quoted above, the LORD God was later born as Jesus Christ i.e. "that Rock was Christ." Notice carefully in the Ten Commandments declaration that it was Jesus Christ who declared them while identifying Himself in them i.e. "I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt" and "that Rock was Christ."
"20:2 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. 20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
King David was a truly righteous man (i.e. he was not self-righteous) because he did not reject the Law of the LORD. David knew that the coming Judgment of all of humanity is based upon a choice of obedience of, or rebellion against, the Law of the LORD God in His coming Kingdom (see The Patriotism Prophecy and The Kingdom Of The LORD God).
"112:1 Praise ye the LORD.
Fact Finder: (a) Why does Satan want to mislead Christian-professing people into believing that they are free to ignore and disobey the Law of the LORD - exactly as Satan himself has done? (b) What's going to happen to lawless Satan - and all of those who choose to follow his loser rebellion?
