Ten Commandments


BROTHERS & SISTERS !!

MANY BELIEVERS WILL THROW OPPOSING SCRIPTURES AT US THAT THEIR TEACHERS HAVE TAUGHT THEM IN ERROR, AS THEY TRY TO DISPROVE OUR BELIEF STATEMENT. OUR POINT OF CONJECTURE IS THE ISSUE OF THE 4TH COMMANDMENT.

''Remember Shabath,to keep it qodesh (meaning "Set - Apart")."

Do you see here any instructions here about food, teaching or partying etc?

No you don't because most of these additives are traditions. Everyone knows it is a day of rest and you stay in your home not shabattin at the beach etc.


This is the oppositional argument which is a very fundamental and immature concept. Gal 5:14 "For the entire Turah is completed in one word,in this,"you shall love your neighbour as yourself." This is the moral law. If we look up the word "completed," where as in other translations they say Fulfilled. This word "completed" means "having every necessary part." Anyone looking at the 'context' of what has been written can see that it is so simple and easy that the summary of living the Ten Commands produces the love that is so necessarily required to be alive. It certainly does not mean the Ten Commandments are finished. As we have pointed out, having this opposing view is fundamental and immature.


Another Scripture that is used with a switched context to prove the point is Matt 22:40 ........ "On these 2 commands "HANG" all the Turah & the Prophets. If we look at the meaning of "HANG" in Strong's we are shown Result of search for "hang": 2211 zqaph zek-af' (Aramaic) corresponding to 2210; to hang, i.e. impale:--set up.

And this is what the misguided are teaching, they are actually not willing to complete the necessary test of proving their love to the Saviour, by following all these wonderful commands instead they deny the rest.


Remember we need to learn, do and live all the commands to complete our walk. The 10 are not finished, because they are eternal.

This is a major understanding and one that should be discussed further, but our main issue of discrepancy today is about our "RESTING," on Shabath. Shabath actually means REST and we are to rest our bodies in our homes with our families. Most of the opposing behaviours are not Scriptural but traditions of men over many centuries. Teaching classes on the Shabath were for novices but today Turah has made life so easy for us. I mean how long does it take to teach your family that they need to stay home - no work is to be done, food is prepared the day before, so that everyone can rest but not work. Of course you can sleep, read, pray, just loaf and relax. This is something to really look forward to. Shabath is from sunset Friday to sunset Saturday and you can always go out on Saturday evening. Once we know this - if we refuse to do it, we are breaking a Commandment and that becomes a Salvation issue. Of course there are emergencies but these are exceptional and our Deliverer is understanding, so long as we are observant in our obedience on a regular basis.
