God Reveals the Way of Love
Rules that I must obey.
Statutes of the Lord, Most High.
Like these if you like Jesus.
The Seventh Commandment
The Third Commandment
Jesus answered, “The most important is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:29-31
All of them plus all the ones that your parents make.
Good question. I don't know.
Because God told Cain secretly, "Don't do it."
Because his parents told him.
Because the Law is written on our hearts (our consciences).
In the Valley of Siddim.
On Mount Sinai.
In the River Jordan.
On Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa.
Written with the finger of God
Yes, they can go anywhere they want. They were God's people after all.
No, it was holy territory and God told them to stay back or they would die.
On the first day of week
On the Sabbath, the seventh day
On the third day and on the third new moon after the people had gone out of Egypt.
True, Exodus 19:3-6.
False, Genesis 48:3-6.
It's the same thing as a commandment.
It's like a sacrament, but older.
It's a solemn and legally binding agreement, often between God and man, with consequences for breaking it and disobeying the agreement.
It's a special prayer revealed by God with seven petitions, an introduction, and a doxology.
He said, "That's right Peeps, God is gonna get you. Stay back and stay afraid."
He said, "Fear the Lord, for it is better to fear than to die."
He said, “Do not fear, for God has come to test you, that the fear of him may be before you, that you may not sin."
He said, "Keep yourselves from sinning...and good luck with that."
The Ten Covenants of My Fathers
Ten Things I forgot to do last summer
They made the covenants in terms of money and had to promise to pay back money for moral wrongs they did (transgressions).
They "cut" covenants, which required the death of an animal, such as a pigeon or a calf being cut in two pieces. If either of the two parties making the agreement broke the covenant, the fate of the animal would be their fate (death).
God makes us die to pay for our disobedience.
God sent His own Son (Jesus) to die for the failed obedience of His own people and the sins of the whole world.
