A Bible Journey, 70: The Christian Ten Commandments

"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; And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; And did all eat the same spiritual meat; And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ ... I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt"

The most fundamental reality of the Holy Bible, that is ignored ("ignorant" means to ignore - the reason that Paul warned "I would not that ye should be ignorant" in the plain-stated verses below) or stubbornly-rejected by millions of people who claim to be Christian, is that "the LORD God" of the so-called Old Testament was in fact Jesus Christ i.e. "that Rock was Christ" (see The Real Jesus: The Word Of The LORD God and A Bible Journey, 56: The Sacred Name).

Moreover, the Ten Commandments (including the one and only true Sabbath - see Creation Day 7: The Week And The Christian Sabbath) have always been Christian because they begin with his declaration "I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage" (see below).

"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." (1 Corinthians 10:1-5 KJV)

Sinai

The Ten Commandments are the basis of salvation (see the Fact Finder question below), as the Messiah consistently taught. Christ died for repentant sinners. The question "18:18 And a certain ruler asked him, saying, Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?" (Luke 18:18 KJV) was answered with His warning:

"18:20 Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother." (Luke 18:20 KJV). Those who refuse to repent have the lake of fire awaiting them: "22:14 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. 22:15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie." (Revelation 22:14-15 KJV).

The Christian Ten Commandments - as declared by Jesus Christ Himself:

The Holy Scriptures

"20:1 And God spake all these words, saying,

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.

20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, 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: 20:5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; 20:6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

20:7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. 20:9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: 20:10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: 20:11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it [see Why Observe The True Sabbath?].

20:12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

20:13 Thou shalt not kill.

20:14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.

20:15 Thou shalt not steal.

20:16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

20:17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's." (Exodus 20:1-17 KJV)

This Day In History, November 10

1202: During the Fourth Crusade, Church of Rome "crusaders" (see Emperor Constantine's Sun Dogs and Constantine's Crusades In History And Prophecy) began a siege of Zara (now Zadar, Croatia).

Crusdaers

1444: The Battle of Varna. "Crusaders" under King Vladislaus III of Varna were defeated by the Turks under Sultan Murad II. Roman Catholic Europe and the Muslim Middle East are the historic and end-time "kings of the north and south" (see The Prophet Daniel: Kings Of The North and South).

1483: Martin Luther was born in Eisleben, Germany. Although Luther rebelled against the immorality of the pope during his time, Luther (and most "Protestant" churches today) maintained most of the Church of Rome's anti-Biblical doctrines (see Why Call Me, Lord, Lord, and Do Not The Things Which I Say?).

1493: Christopher Columbus "discovered" the island of Antigua on his second voyage to "America" - the name given to the continents that extend from northern Canada to southern Chile, totalling 35 nations and 1 billion people. "America" isn't just one country in America. Everyone, from Canada in the north to Chile in the south are "Americans" too.

America

All of the voyages of Columbus were actually just within the Caribbean Sea islands, Central America (i.e. what is today Mexico) and South America (i.e. what is today Venezuela). Columbus never landed in North America (for a map of his actual voyages, see Thanksgiving In History and Prophecy). The Vikings arrived in America over 500 years before Columbus was even born,

The Vikings Disovered America

1674: The Dutch formally ceded New Netherlands to the English, who renamed it New York.

1766: William Franklin, the Colonial Governor of New Jersey, signed the charter for the establishment of Queen's College (after the rebellion of the New England colonies, it was renamed Rutgers University).

1871: Welsh explorer Henry Morton Stanley located the missing Scottish missionary Dr. David Livingstone near Lake Tanganyika and uttered his famous "Dr. Livingstone, I presume?"

Stanley and Livingstone

1928: Hirohito was crowned emperor of Japan. He ruled for 61 years, until his death in 1989 (see also Why Was Korea Divided Into North And South?).

1938: Benito Mussolini's Fascist Italy enacted its first anti-Semitic legislation (see Is Iniquity Liberal Or Conservative?).

Hitler

1942: After the British victory at El Alamein during the Second World War (1939-1945; see also The Assassination That Triggered Two World Wars), Winston Churchill said, "This is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning."

1970: The Soviet Lunar probe Lunokhod 1 was launched.

1975: The 729-foot freighter Edmund Fitzgerald was lost during a storm on Lake Superior, killing all 29 crew on board. The sinking was made famous by Gordon Lightfoot's song The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.

1975: Palestinian terrorist leader Yasser Arafat addressed the United Nations General Assembly while wearing a holstered pistol. Barely 28 years after voting to establish a Jewish state, the UN General Assembly then endorsed a resolution (67 to 55 with 15 abstentions) describing Israel as "the racist regime in occupied Palestine" (see Where Is Palestine?) and stigmatizing Zionism (a term that actually refers to A History Of Jerusalem: Zionism) as "a form of racialism and racial discrimination." The resolution's preamble additionally singled out Zionism as "a threat to world peace and security," and called upon "all countries to oppose this racist and imperialist ideology."

1979: 250,000 residents of Mississauga, Ontario (a city adjacent to Toronto) were evacuated for 6 days after a 106-car Canadian Pacific Rail freight train carrying explosive and poisonous chemicals derailed, rupturing and burning some of the tankers. It was the largest peacetime evacuation in the history of North America until the 2005 evacuation of New Orleans for Hurricane Katrina.

1982: Leonid Brezhnev, General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, died at age 76.

1989: The Berlin wall began to be dismantled (see also Russia Or Europe - Who Has Been The Invader?).
