Thou Shalt Not Bear False Witness

Against Thy Neighbour.

Exodus 20:16

and

Neither Shalt Thou Bear False Witness

Against Thy Neighbour.

Deuteronomy 5:20

In the English Bible of our KJV both Exo_20:16 and Deu_5:20, seem to be identical with the exception of the first 3 words of the forbidance. Yet in the Hebrew, there is one more noticeable difference than the arrangement of the negative command, and that is the word translated ‘False’.

In the prior and related compilation study of this same series on the Common Law of GOD, pt 2. the 3rd Commandment regarding taking ‘YHWH’s Name in Vain’ has covered these words to be discussed and how they are related as part and parcel to the understanding of this 9th Commandment, it is evident that without having a firm grasp on the falsity and vanity of the violation of the 3rd Commandment, the actual and literal understanding of the violation against the 9th Commandment contained in sinful treatment of one’s neighbor in somewhat incomprehensible. So it is that some information contained in the message relayed from the 3rd Commandment will be repeated in this compilation as well, yet for a more comprehensive understanding of this Law of God particularly, I would ask that one first listen to the 2nd part of this series which regards the 3rd Commandments. (The Common Law pt.2 LINK)

Before getting in to the 2 Hebrew words of focus and more importantly their meaning and then effect upon the Common-Wealth in their violation and in their keeping; one word, which is actually a prefix on the Hebrew word ‘neighbor’, is the word ‘against’, bear a false witness ‘against thy neighbor’. Some have supposed this Commandment to only disallow falsification of witness in the negative affect, against a neighbor, that is to damn thy neighbor, to bring a false witness against ones neighbor, in a court room setting, as in to bring a charge against him, yet this application is contrary to biblical context, as to be provided. The Hebrew word for ‘against’, as translated in the KJV is simply the prefix of the letter ‘B’ to the word neighbor, ‘B’ also is translated and means ‘to, unto, near, by, beside, before’ , the prefix represents the Idea of closeness, it as per holistic scriptural context is not limiting the 9th Commandment to a negative witness by falsehood in a court setting or in a setting of accusation of judgment, rather it is the general bearing of a falsehood ‘to, unto or by’ ones neighbor, the Idea of bringing falsehood to him in any way…un-discript. As well the very word witness implies Truth, as a thing certainly known.

An Illustration in Allegory

When Breading False with Witness,

Witness is always Forced!

The Common-Wealth of Israel is to guard against Falsehood in it’s Common Law, which therefore imposes it’s self upon the citizenry and society as a thing common within the action’s between neighbor to neighbor, the Idea of excepted falsity amid neighbors or friends in general conversation, in simple and mindless lying I wish to dispelled by an illustration to show how falsity is a repugnant standard by which to live, as it is a standard of destruction that will hereby allow vanity to rule the Nation from it’s Justice system down, then from it’s children upward in it’s natural order; Falsehood and Witness are two opposing creatures that have the ability to mate,albeit only in the captivity of ones mind, yet they shall bring forth fruit in the world.

After the vain Idol of falsehood is bowed to, by the committing of adultery by False with Witness , the half bred of in-absolute and meaningless conversation shall be begat for 3 to 4 generations, insomuch as this iniquity will pervade to the utmost: into the law and the covenant of the very Common-Wealth it was codified to preserve: In a society created to be seated upon God’s Word these mongrels will be paraded as legitimate, the bastard will thereby fulfill it’s own destiny by replacing the true, perfect and purified Law of God with it’s own dynastic equivalent in destructive force in opposition to the Law which sought to give life. The wage of Sin shall be payed, and the unfortunate truth is that it is only those who will not kissed that Idol or bowed to it’s likeness that will realize it’s father is Falsehood and that Witness had been taken by force, Justice has been perverted!

This is the state we look at in this situation, this is the importance of the establishment of the Common-Wealth of Israel to be seated on the Law of God which persists by the Holy Spirit of Truth and Wisdom.

The Two 

Forms of Realistic Falsehood

VAIN & SIQ

Consider:

In the commandments:

In Exodus the Hebrew word שׁקר׃ / SiQuR H8267 is translated false

לא / no תענה /shalt thou bear ברעך / against thy neighbor. עד /witness שׁקר׃H8267 false

In Deuteronomy the Hebrew word is שׁוא׃ / SUA H7723 is translated false

ולא / Neither תענהH6030 shalt thou bear ברעך /against thy neighbor. עד / witness שׁוא׃H7723 false

While both words are acceptable translations to the word false in English, the reason the language varies is because we are meant to learn the compound or dual spirit of these letters, as YHWH had both words used it is so that those who are called by His Name may ask Him what it is we should not do, that we may please him by our lives and our society.

As in the discussion of any law, the construct of the wording is important as to it’s intent, an intent that Israel is intended to understand.

Biblical Context

The only verses in the Pentateuch Law where the Hebrew word שׁוא / SUA (H7723 ) translated in Deu_5:20 as ‘False’ is found is in the following verses beside: Exo_20:7; Deu_5:11 3rd Commandment,

As well we have context and case, to help in:

Exo_23:1 Thou shalt not raise a false report: put not thine hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness.

Again the word SUA from Exodus 20:7, the 3rd Commandment is found translated ‘False’, while the context seems to be that of the 9th Commandment dealing with a the ‘false report’ of a ‘false witness’.

Venturing out side of the Pentateuch for context consider the substantiation of this word meaning ‘vain or empty’

Job 15:31 Let not him that is deceived trust in vanity: for vanity shall be his recompence.

 

Psa 12:1-2 Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.

They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.

God’s Word in opposition to the context:

Psa 12:6 The words of YHWH are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.

The form of false witness being referenced in Deuteronomy 5:20, as indicated by the word SUA is not identical to the form represented in Exodus 20:17, as indicated by the word SiQuR.

SUA refers to the type of falsehood which is vain, empty, mindless, ignorant, aimless: An example at law of this understanding is sited by Noah Webster as ‘ignoramus’: An ignorant person; a vain pretender to knowledge. , suitingly it could be described as ‘lying just to lie’, truly vain words.

While when dealing with the word found in Exodus: SiQuR and it’s related words refer to the same falsity of the witness, that is in it’s quality as being untrue, yet it indicates false intent, filled with falsehood for a reason, mindfully false, knowledgeably incorrect, aimed at injustice

Hebrew root SiQ is found a number of times in the Law, also dealing with these ‘ false matters ‘

Exo_23:7 Keep thee far from a false matter

(that is literally: ‘ Of words that are false (SiQuR) be far from’)

Of testifying falsely

Bearing  Falsity 

 

Deu_19:18 And the judges shall make diligent inquisition: and, behold, if the witness be a false witness, and hath testified falsely against his brother;

Deu 19:19 Then shall ye do unto him, as he had thought to have done unto his brother: so shalt thou put the evil away from among you.

Above the word SiQuR is used both times for the word false, and as well the same word translated in the Commandment as ‘bear’, is here translated ‘testified’.

A good example of the context of both the 3rd and 9th commandment may be seen in

Lev_19:11 Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie(SiQuR-H8266) one to another.

Lev_19:12 And ye shall not swear by my name falsely,(SiQuR- H8267), neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD.

Lev 19:13 Thou shalt not defraud (O-SiQH6231) thy neighbour, neither rob him: the wages of him that is hired shall not abide with thee all night until the morning.

This small but weighty substantiated arrangement of evidence from scripture shows the meaning of both aspects of the 9th Commandment and it’s use of the both the Hebrew word SUA referencing ‘Vain matters’ and that of SiQeR matters (pun intended), that is falsity with intent. Remember both aspects of this Commandment reference willful sin, that is to do so knowingly, even the falsehood which speaks to the idea of ignorance, the sinner bears a willfully: ignorant, vain, empty, careless, mindless ‘witness’ or ‘matter’, in ‘words’ : written or spoken. While the more sick idea to our morality is the idea of matters which we know to be false and perhaps have premeditated the effect of it’s witness, matters or words.

THE

CHRISTIAN WITNESS

Can Not Be

FALSE OR VAIN

In other words, when those who are Called by the LORD YHWH’s Name, those who claim the blood of the covenant to be written upon them, by the precious name of Jesu(s) Christ, that is as a Christian, when they speak to a matter is should neither be vain or false, the words which we speak as part of the common-wealth of Israel that is as joint heirs with Christ of His Kingdom, should be true words, pure words, words and witnesses and testimonies which have been tried and found to have substance: This would indicate particularly in matters of trial or judgment before a governing authority ordained by YHWH God, yet not limited to such, as the Commandment is not only focusing upon a witness in a court but in the witness of ones mouth, hand and actions as offered to ones neighbor or brother of the Common-Wealth of Israel, that is of his own Nation. There is not one persuasive shred of evidence that witness to the fact or to suggests that it is exceptionable practice of behavior under this 9th Common Law that would allow for fellow Citizen-brothers to practice general lying or vain speech one with the other; in other words the whole command is an admonition towards thoughtful and true dealings with in the common-wealth, brother to brother, neighbor to neighbor from general conversation unto judgment for sin. And as a people called by God’s Name, it behooves us to Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness. And their word will eat as doth a canker… 2Ti_2:15-17 “

Not only when we study the scriptures to give an answer for our Faith, are we to shun the profane and vain babblings, we are to as well have our conversation honest among the Gentiles ( 1Pe_2:12), to be men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom (Act_6:3), Providing for honest things, not only in the sight of the Lord, but also in the sight of men. (2Co_8:21) as our calling by His Name is to walk by Faith, thus every dealing we as members of the Common-Wealth of Israel and as joint heirs with Christ as Christians should convey our honest action which are dictated by our honest Faith, our truthful Faith which leads the brothers of Christ to be a thoughtfully considerate race begotten of the father, that is not a vain, ignorant, mindless, and empty witness of our faith, our hope with in us, by stupidly speaking unsubstantiated matters that we do not have understand on, or witnessing to a thing that by our ignorance on the matter will misrepresent the witness of our faith. As well, in the other form, the SiQR is to bear a falsehood in our witness, that is to turn our hearts to be he that worketh deceit, he that telleth lies, knowing that those who do such shall not dwell in the house of YHWH or tarry in his sight. as says Psa_101:7, to not meddle with falsehood as Pro_17:4 A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; and a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue.

It behooves us as those who earnestly desire not to take the Name of our GOD in vain to become the people of His calling who bear no false witness unto our neighbor.

Yet for the Godly we we are told:

Psa_119:104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.

It is of necessity that those who are called by the Name of YHWH and those who call upon His Name be honest, truthful, wise men and women of an understanding heart and spirit, as far as our cognation allow us to be by our emotional and mental nature.

CHRIST ON AVOIDING EVIL

It is not until after the a fore mentioned aspect of the 3rd and 9th Commandment is brought into focus that it is even appropriate to discuss the subject of: Swearing, Oaths, Vowes, and Judgment, this is because honest and true men are in no need of swearing such an Oath as they in their honest conversation have no need of such, opperating upon the principles of

Num_30:2 If a man vow a vow unto the LORD, or swear an oath to bind his soul with a bond; he shall not break his word, he shall do according to all that proceedeth out of his mouth.

which is well substantiated by our Lord Christ in his teaching in

Mat_5:37 But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.

As Christians we are pressed to have simple communication, and direct, for there is no place to swear in any way less than to swear by the name of YHWH when swearing is requiered.

Mat 5:33 Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths:

Mat 5:34 But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God’s throne:

Mat 5:35 Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.

Mat 5:36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.

The forgone mention of swearing not at all is specific to the idea of swearing ‘not at all’ by any other thing than upon the name of YHWH as the Law only establishes:

Deu_6:13 Thou shalt fear YHWH thy God, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name

Once Christians are honest

they can start to consider

Judicial Proceedings

As the verses of the Pentateuch and the case examples are reflected upon from Exodus 23, Deuteronomy 19 and Leviticus 19, specific instances of law are seen to directly reference the swearing of brother to brother or neighbor to neighbor, the object of an Oath as taken in the Name of YHWH, the LORD, is evident, as well the swearing of an Oath is part of Judiciary proceedings under certain circumstances. The swearing of an Oath, is a very serious matter, as stated by our Christ, when swearing is required is is due to some form of evil. The swearing in a judicial proceeding is to invoke honesty beyond the standard, it is used as a converse measure to hold a Brother-Citizen to account for the truth or falsity of his testimony, so that the actual incrimination may come from the swearing falsely or lying under Oath, which today is called Perjury. In this instance the man who asserts to know a thing must swear as to His knowledge of the matter as will he who is to defend from the accusation, true or false. The Use of the swearing of an Oath is among the highest forms of Evidence one may produce in a Judiciary setting, as it is first hand witness coupled with the witness of God, by evoking His Name into the matter beyond a common standard it places a multiplied level of guilt upon the one who uses the Name vainly, the act calls ones soul into account beyond the duration of life; the only evidence which is higher is the like in opposition of 2 or 3 witnesses and / or factually substantiated Evidence introduced into the matter contrary to the single witness and his oath.

A Case Example:

Exo_22:7 If a man shall deliver unto his neighbour money or stuff to keep, and it be stolen out of the man’s house; if the thief be found, let him pay double.

Exo 22:8 If the thief be not found, then the master of the house shall be brought unto the judges, to see whether he have put his hand unto his neighbour’s goods.

Exo 22:9 For all manner of trespass, whether it be for ox, for ass, for sheep, for raiment, or for any manner of lost thing, which another challengeth to be his, the cause of both parties shall come before the judges; and whom the judges shall condemn, he shall pay double unto his neighbour.

Exo 22:10 If a man deliver unto his neighbour an ass, or an ox, or a sheep, or any beast, to keep; and it die, or be hurt, or driven away, no man seeing it:

Exo_22:11 Then shall an oath of the LORD be between them both, that he hath not put his hand unto his neighbour’s goods; and the owner of it shall accept thereof, and he shall not make it good.

When either form of falsehood prior discussed, either vainly-ignorant or intentionally-premeditated, the matter must be delineated by a Judicious Elder wise and understanding, and known among the tribe, and in such a case the determined Judgment preordained is:

Deu_19:16 If a false witness rise up against any man to testify against him that which is wrong;

Deu 19:17 Then both the men, between whom the controversy is, shall stand before the LORD, before the priests and the judges, which shall be in those days;

Deu 19:18 And the judges shall make diligent inquisition: and, behold, if the witness be a false witness, and hath testified falsely against his brother;

Deu_19:19 Then shall ye do unto him, as he had thought to have done unto his brother: so shalt thou put the evil away from among you.

Restitution it is always the preferred Judgment to cause Brothers to be reconciled by restitution going forward, in the case of payment, for in the case of one who owes another, there is no damaged party more justified to have restitution than thy who have been wronged. In the event that one has in some form or another found an occasion to repent of a falsehood, the following is prescribed:

Lev_6:2 If a soul sin, and commit a trespass against the LORD, and lie unto his neighbour in that which was delivered him to keep, or in fellowship, or in a thing taken away by violence, or hath deceived his neighbour;

Lev 6:3 Or have found that which was lost, and lieth concerning it, and sweareth falsely; in any of all these that a man doeth, sinning therein:

Lev 6:4 Then it shall be, because he hath sinned, and is guilty, that he shall restore that which he took violently away, or the thing which he hath deceitfully gotten, or that which was delivered him to keep, or the lost thing which he found,

Lev_6:5 Or all that about which he hath sworn falsely; he shall even restore it in the principal, and shall add the fifth part more thereto, and give it unto him to whom it appertaineth, in the day of his trespass offering.

In such a case we see the place of repaying 1/5th of that which was the principal beyond the matter, and beyond this YHWH required an unblemished Ram payed to the priest hood or perhaps it’s estimated value?

In an Ideal Christian society established in brotherhood and good faith this incident would be resolved civilly, and between the two men of what ever the matter was, by simply taking one and the other at His honest word and knowing that neither would defraud, steal or trespass against the other willfully, yet this is not the nature of Men.

Thus when such a controversy arises the decision is ultimate to determine the truth of the matter, and to determine if either Citizen of the Common-Wealth is acting in an un-brotherly way, and to restore such a one by restitution.

The citizen members of the Ecclesia should not be found unworthy to judge the smallest matters…things that pertain to this life?

As the Apostle admonishes: If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church/ecclasia. I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren? 1Co_6:1-6

In such a case, Paul’s admonition is for brothers to appeal one to the other first and then to turn to a judge of the Ecclesia, providing the reprimand:

1Co 6:1 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints?..But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before the unbelievers.

1Co 6:7 Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded?

1Co 6:8 Nay, ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren.

1Co 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God?

This of course is the case when members of the Ecclesial are living under the principalities and powers of the darkness, and not under a righteous Common-Wealth, and that when the Judge which wields the power of punishment is unGodly.

 

A Single Swearing of Oaths or Vows

That is the Idea of one who swears to do a thing for another before Almighty God.

Multiple examples of men swearing one to the other to preform an action is regarded out side of the perjury prior discussed, and this due to the circumstances and place of who is involved, when for instance an oath is sworn between Abraham and Eliazar as to get a wife of Abraham’s kindred for Isaac to wed, or between Isaac and Amimelech a Oath of peace is made, and beyond the swearing of these Oaths, they show the invocation of God into a matter to establish it beyond the normal for Divine accountability, it as well is an invocation for YHWH’s help in the matter: this too may undoubtedly be the bearing of a false witness in the event of it’s willful disregard or thoughtlessness.

Swearing a Oath to God is a vow:

Also is the matter of a vow, which by biblical definition seems to only indicate an swearing of an Oath or promise to God Himself as to do a thing for Him or to Him, to this Solomon offers excelant advice:

Ecc 5:4 When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed.

Ecc 5:5 Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay.

Ecc 5:6 Suffer not thy mouth to cause thy flesh to sin; neither say thou before the angel, that it was an error: wherefore should God be angry at thy voice, and destroy the work of thine hands?

Ecc 5:7 For in the multitude of dreams and many words there are also divers vanities: but fear thou God.

It is a powerful thing to vow a vow to YHWH, as the scriptures evidently bear witness.

 

The Swearing of an Oath by YHWH

is

Called a Covenant

 

Deu_7:6 For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.

Deu 7:7 The LORD did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people:

Deu 7:8 But because the LORD loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the LORD brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.

Deu 7:9 Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations;

Deu 7:10 And repayeth them that hate him to their face, to destroy them: he will not be slack to him that hateth him, he will repay him to his face.

Compiled by JS LOWTHER

Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD YHWH thy God in vain;

for the LORD YHWH will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

Exodus 20:7 & Deuteronomy 5:11

The Subject of the 3rd commandment is a subject that has entailed many different opinions over the years. Some have claimed, that the use of the actual name YHWH is the idea, that is that it is too holy a name for pronunciation, this is the reason for why we find that the jewish tradition was admittedly followed by most translators of the Hebrew scripture; Some have proposed that the not using the Name YHWH is the idea of the commandment, in that by not using God’s actual name and replacing it with a fill in such as “LORD”, “GOD” as the KJV, or speaking the Name as Adoni meaning in Hebrew “My Lord”, YHWH’s name is rendered vain; And some have even thought that the vulgar use of the name such as “god damn it” or”Jesus Christ” to express anger or curse, is the focus of the 3rd commandment. As always the answer does not come from idealism but from the Word of God Him self. While all of the prior mentioned usages of the LORD YHWH’s Name may be applicable as sin, depending on the intent of the user, the Commandment is specific, and the guilt of the Sinner is to be sure. In the Common Law of God this commandment is not hidden from us nor is it too far from our ability to follow it. While there is undoubtedly damage of Identity by vanity or falsehood in taking the memorial Name of YHWH out of the Hebrew text and replacing it with fill in titles, or by the opposite, by over using the Name YHWH in empty and false ways, placing it into situations and texts where it has no place to be.

The

Meaning

of

THE NAME

As prior discussed in the former portions of this compilation, the Name YHWH literally means “HE Who Is” or “I am that I am”, and the word God we had also described as referencing a Judge of a particular law, of course when we speak of The LORD GOD we are speaking of YHWH ALHI, that is He Who Is Judge or God. This application of the Judgment aspect of YHWH literally calls the violator into a perjurious state when he takes Person of the God of the bible vainly. A literal translation of the Hebrew could as well read “Thou shalt not take the name of He Who Is Judge in vain…”, the very discretion of ever action weighed by one who considers YHWH to be LORD , to be God, and to be Judge of all especially the hearts and minds of men is tried by the conscience of all who call upon the Name of the same.

A

People Called

by

HIS NAME

Consider this place of YHWH’s people Israel in this paraphrase of

Deu_28:1-10

And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:..The LORD shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, and walk in his ways.

And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the LORD; and they shall be afraid of thee.

This is why refer to Israel as being “YHWH’s people, or God’s people”, not because they are intrinsically and naturally holy, but because by the Grace of God the promise to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob as well as to every member of one of the 12 tribes is capable to attain the wisdom offered in the perfect Law and Word of God more so than any other people, and so much that the dominion given through YHWH’s Law makes the nation’s who are round about a feared.

Consider the proclamation of YHWH’s name before Moses and the power which it contains:

This is the NAME of the FATHER:

Exo_34:6-7

And YHWH passed by before him, and proclaimed, YHWH, YHWH God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth,

7 Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.

This is the name of the Father of our Lord, this is the name Israel is called by, this is the name we as his people are to call upon…Its not just a pronunciation, or a title it’s a power, it’s an authority far above any name in heaven or on earth.

Now consider this message to God’s people

2Ch_7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

The Message to the Israelites both Lost and found as a people called by His Name

Isa_43:7 Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.

 

The people sought by God who have abandoned HIS NAME

Isa_65:1 I am sought of them that asked not for me; I am found of them that sought me not: I said, Behold me, behold me, unto a nation that was not called by my name.

And if we hearken back to the introduction message attached to this Series, in

Rom_10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved… a quote from Joe_2:32 and recited in Act_2:21 as well.

There is in this understanding of the 3rd Commandment of God’s Common Law an important Reality intended for God’s National people, that is the Reality of Reality:

For those who claim, call on, or wish to be called by the name of YHWH, the LORD, GOD, the Father, or whatever Name you feel accuratly describes the God of Israel, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob / Israel, if you claim that Name to be upon your life and salvation by that name, when you violate the Commandment as the Scripture defines it you are guilty, and the Named of the Commandment will not hold you guiltless, that’s the reality.

A Biblical Realistic Approach

As such, the biblically Realistic application of the 3rd Commandment is then much more functional and applicable to the heart, mind and Soul of those who call upon that Name, and those who are called by the Name, it is to this people that the promise of guilt for Sin against the 3rd Commandment is offered. For one who falsely takes the Name of the LORD in vain feigningly, as the prophet Jer_3:10, IS DISTINCT FROM one who does not recognize the awesome power and glory of that name, to those Guilt may be perhaps less inputted on account of the ignorance clause found in every law of God, as may be seen in Leviticus 4 and Numbers 15, which may be summarized in

Num_15:29-31 Ye shall have one law for him that sinneth through ignorance, both for him that is born among the children of Israel, and for the stranger that sojourneth among them.

Yet for those who are called, those who have knowledge we are told:

30 But the soul that doeth ought presumptuously, whether he be born in the land, or a stranger, the same reproacheth the LORD; and that soul shall be cut off from among his people.

31 Because he hath despised the word of the LORD, and hath broken his commandment, that soul shall utterly be cut off; his iniquity shall be upon him.

Unveiling the Glory

of the

Spiritual Law:

VAIN…

The only verses in the Pentateuch Law where the Hebrew word שׁוא / SUA H7723 translated in Exo_20:7 ‘vain’ is found is in the following verses beside here:

Exo_23:1; Deu_5:11; Deu_5:20;

In Exo_23:1 Thou shalt not raise a false report: put not thine hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness. , again the word SUA from Exodus 20:7’s 3rd Commandment is found translated ‘False’,while the context is that of the 9th Commandment.

A Direct correlation of the intent of the Law is seen in the same word SUA found in the 9th commandment of Deu_5:20, Deuteronomy, which is the repeated synopsis or the Deutero-Law of Exodus, Deutero-Nomy in Greek literally meaning Second Law; notice the same word, SUA, used as to give us a more precise meaning and direction of the word and The Commandment:

Deu_5:20 Neither shalt thou bear false H7723 (SUA) witness against thy neighbour. ,

the word ‘false’ used is not the same Hebrew word in the 9th commandment of the Exodus text, the word used for ‘false’ witness is שׁקר / SiQuR, which is used to generally convey the the simple idea of untruth and also translated ‘false’ or ‘falsely’ by it’s Hebrew root SiQ a number of times in the Law, also dealing with false matters Exo_23:7 , testifying falsely Deu_19:18.

A good example of the context of both the 3rd and 9th commandment may be seen in

Lev_19:11 Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie(SiQuR-H8266) one to another.

Lev_19:12 And ye shall not swear by my name falsely,(SiQuR- H8267), neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD.

Lev 19:13 Thou shalt not defraud (O-SiQH6231) thy neighbour, neither rob him: the wages of him that is hired shall not abide with thee all night until the morning.

Lev 19:14 Thou shalt not curse the deaf, nor put a stumblingblock before the blind, but shalt fear thy God: I am the LORD.

Lev 19:15 Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment: thou shalt not respect the person of the poor, nor honour the person of the mighty: but in righteousness shalt thou judge thy neighbour.

Lev 19:16 Thou shalt not go up and down as a talebearer among thy people: neither shalt thou stand against the blood of thy neighbour: I am the LORD.

Lev 19:17 Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him.

Lev 19:18 Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD

Solomon summarized the statutes above thus:

Pro_30:5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.

Pro 30:6 Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

Pro 30:7 Two things have I required of thee; deny me them not before I die:

Pro 30:8 Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me:

Pro 30:9 Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and ‘take the name of my God’ in vain. (Lit. manipulate the Name of God)

By a diligent look at the Hebrew, an over lap of the 3rd and 9th Commandment may be seen easily as the words: שׁוא / SUA H7723 and שׁקר / SiQuR H8267 from the 3rd and 9th Commandments of Deuteronomy 5 and Exodus 20, particularly in the use of it’s root words.

Let us reflect upon applied knowledge

COMMON LAW FOR A COMMONWEALTH

Throughout the Bible it is easily seen how the the focus of the 3rd Commandment is using the

aspect of the LORD YHWH’s name falsely, vainly or empty; provably, the 3rd Commandment

is intrinsically linked to the 9th Commandment by not only language but by context.

As dealings of National Citizens one with the other, as well as in the case of Testimony or Witness to a matter between men of the same Nation, that is those bound by the same Common Law derived from the same God or Religion, and thus ultimantly the same Faith, it is of paramount importance that the Citizens of this Common Nation have the same corner stone of Law, the same bed Rock foundation. In the case of the Christian Israelite’s only Focus: Our Citizenship is that of the Commonwealth of Israel Eph_2:12 as defined by the Law of God alone as it was relayed by the figure and voice of God to Moses from Heaven Exo_20:22 and as thus our conversant citizenship is ultimately derived from Heaven Php_3:20 from Which YHWH God rules and shall Judge the quick and the dead Act_10:42, 2Ti_4:1 as King Rev_17:14, Rev_19:16. Israel is then bound one to another by the Common Law of YHWH, the king of heaven who has chosen Israel into His Commonwealth and Citizenship, it is then that as Brother’s both by the Genetic Nation we all ethnically belong to as well as the Genetic National God of our Common Fathers: Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (whom God named Israel), the God whose Memorial Name is YHWH, that is He Who Is the LORD of all. It is by this Bond that the third Commandment both empowers Israel and limit’s Israel in dealings one with the other. The evocation of the Name of He Who Is God, has at it’s center point the establishment and maintenance of a Nation. The Name of the God of Israel it self, and in truth, the agreement of all Authority residing in the one entity of National Faith, National Trust or National Belief is more important than how to pronounce the Name it self, of what Name by sound or sight is the accurate one, rather it is the Knowledge and Faith of the power of the Common God of Israel, by whom the establishment of all Common Law of the Commonwealth of Israel rest, resting upon the Rock who is perfect for all his ways are Judgment, a God of Truth with out iniquity, Just and Right is HE!

Until Christian Israel can TAKE the Name of their National God into their heart and mind and soul, by Faith to Establish Him in their Heart, Mind and Soul, the knowledge of how to Take His Name in Vain is overwhelmingly present in every aspect of our Heathen life. By the very fact that we as a people refuse to hearken unto the Word of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, we as a nation take the Name of our Genetic National God vainly by every non-lawful action we deal one with another, and worse when we deal with Him, that is in terms of our Covenant relationship. The very Spirit of the letter of the commandment is established upon Faith in the power of the God of Israel and his ABILITY to Judge the living and the dead, that is Judgment in this life and in that which is to come; The knowledge which comes by faith, that you can not hide your false or vain dealings with your neighbor or with your God, it will be revieled in this life or in that which is to come, YHWH God is Judge and He will Judge US. We will not be guiltless who take His Name in vain.

The Judgment and Condemnation, the death which comes by the Sin against this Spiritual Law we call the 3rd Commandment reaches into the depths of eternity, by the Fact of the meaning of the Name of the Eternal mighty one who spoke it.

Case and point: How we Take the Name of YHWH is our choice by every dealing with God first, and with our neighbor second. How real we consciously Take the Guilt God promises to hold against us by our false Taking of his Name, by our dealings, as those who claim to have Called upon his name for salvation and those who claim to have His Name upon us is a question of how much faith, trust, or belief one really has in the God they call upon.

Consider also an interesting and important aspect of the idolatry connected to the violation of the 3rd Commandment, as able to be seen in the Greek LXX:

Mat-ai-os is the word used in both the 3rd and 9th Commandment of the LXX in both Deut and Exo. G3152 μάταιος/ mataios- From the base of G3155; empty, profitless, or vain, vanity.

The same word is also seen in Lev 17:7, where a similar word to the above mentioned Hebrew word SiQuR is found in the Hebrew text which is SOIR-iM translated devils, which by understanding the meaning of devil holistically a ‘a lie’ we may conclude to the same point:

Lev_17:7 And they shall not sacrifice still their sacrifices to the vain gods G3152 in which they fornicate after them; it will be an eternal law to you unto your generations.

In the way the word vain is used hear in conjunction with the vain devils of false hood referenced, a tie which has intrinsically been established in the explanation of how a lack of Faith in YHWH’s Name and his ability to Judge the quick and the dead is at the heart of the 3rd commandment, so this Greek parallel to the word vain of the Commandment is establishing the same concept. The Context of the scripture is referencing the Israelite Citizen who would sacrifice out side of the Altar of YHWH as presided by the Aaronic Priest, by doing so would usurp the order of Law given by YHWH and would result in vanity, falsehood and the worship and service of devils, which is the same. An example of this may be seen in Jeroboam’s high places as well as in the Idols of Micah and the Danites of the book of Judges, it can of course be seen in the violation of king Saul in offering sacrifice with out Samuel an Aaronite Priest, even though Saul’s sacrifice was to YHWH God of Israel.

The Connection is Rightly established to see the unity between the 2nd Commandment with the 3rd, and how one may take YHWH’s Name in vain by the disobedience to YHWH’s Order and rule of Law, as the violation specified in Lev 17 is that offered Sacrifice of peace offerings was not to be done by any other than by the Priest’s of Aaron, to the end that Vanity did not occur. By coming full circle when such vanity has usurped the Name of YHWH placed upon the priest hood and the alter, and new variations of YHWH or God start to rule the hearts of men, National Israel will no longer have Faith in the God of the 3rd Commandment, another law system will take root, a system devoted to vanity and falsehood lead by the letter and not the Spirit, and eventually the perversion of His Judgments becomes normal in society and we no longer deal rightly with our fellow Citizens as Brothers.

So I say to you, My Fellow Citizens, my Brother’s the Children of my people, in reflecting and considering, in applying and attaining to this commandment in our lives as honest men and women, a people above reproach who truly has the name of our God in our mouth and upon foreheads and in our hands, as people who are called by the name of Christ, as the Heptibah people inclined to do YHWH’s Will, let our prayer be:

Psa_119:34-40

Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart.

Make me to go in the path of thy commandments; for therein do I delight.

Incline my heart unto thy testimonies, and not to covetousness.

Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken thou me in thy way.

Stablish thy word unto thy servant, who is devoted to thy fear.

Turn away my reproach which I fear: for thy judgments are good.

Behold, I have longed after thy precepts: quicken me in thy righteousness.

AMEN

New Moon Sabbath Bible Study

 

   Picking Back up with the book of Judges for the Weekly Sabbath Bible Study:  Excitement builds as we read about Gideon and his Conversion from being a Baal tolerant Gentile Israelite from the tribe of Manasseh to a Faithful Warrior and soldier of YHWH. In this read we will also cover some of the concepts of the Midianite oppression and subjugation of Israel and why YHWH Called Gideon as a man of valor before his full conversion. When one feels as if they need answers to the problems in the world, it would serve Biblical Christians well to take a look at Gideon.

Who is Israel in Reality?

 

In REALITY

?

Have you ever looked at the prophecies in Scripture about Abraham, Isaac and Jacob/Israel’s descendants and wondered where God’s promises are for Israel today?

Perhaps God couldn’t keep his promises!?

Have you ever thought that YHWH God changed his mind on his selection of a chosen people?

Perhaps God made a mistake!?

Do you find your self looking at the bible in a non-realistic or spiritual way to force some Scripture to be correct about God’s chosen people?

Perhaps God chose the wrong wording!?

Do you ever listen to a message by your ‘Pastor’ and find that he has used Israelite specific verses to talk about

‘the Church’?

Perhaps your Preacher is on to something!!

Believest THOU…

The Prophets ?

Many, especially in our modern day, have not ever considered that their European Ancestors may be Israelites, And that the ‘Gentile Church’ of the New Testament Era was indeed scattered, lost and blinded Israelites who had been redeemed by the blood of CHRIST! (Romans Chapters 9-12 and Hosea Chapters 1-4)

Consider, the Biblically Realistic fact that the peoples which are known and are EURO-PEAN (Hebrew: White of face) are indeed the children of Israel of the modern day, and are the remnant of the race of Adam (Hebrew: Blushing ones) God has chosen to place his name upon (Amos 9 and Act 15).

Those called by the names of: Caucasian, European; Anglo-Saxon, Scandinavian, Germanic, Celtic, Slavonic and Romanic peoples are the literal descendants of the house of Israel and the house of Judah; just as it was foretold it Scripture by Moses and the Prophets, God truly made Israel to become a multitude of nations or a multitude of Gentiles and to ultimately receive the faith of Christ, a blessing to all the peoples of the earth.

Israel = Gentile

my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh:

Israelites;

to whom pertaineth

the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises;

Whose are the fathers,

and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came,

who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen.

Romans 9:3-5

The word Gentile is a name most people who call themselves Christians also call themselves, this name is 100% correct when we are applying it to those Gentiles or Nations which have sprung from Abraham, the Father of many Nations, Isaac the Father of the Nation of Israel, and Jacob the Father of the 12 Tribes or Nations of Israel. The Word Gentile means Nation, specifically a Gene pool of Nations closely related, this is why Abraham could be the father of many Nations or Gentiles, and Rebecca was told she had two Nations or Gentiles in her womb! Amazing thought when thinks there are only two types of people JEWS and GENTILES Before God. While the truth of the meaning of the word Gentile is more Biblicaly consistent than most people think, having a uniform continuity from Genesis to Revelations.

Many Christians are confused when it comes to the role of racial Israel in the modern day when pressed with the role of the Church, as if one must chose Israel or the Church as the recipient of God’s Grace. But the biblical evidence show the truth of the mater to be that Israel and the Church have always been one and the same ever since Moses’ time, when Israel was referred to as the Congregation of YHWH or the Ecclasia / Church of the LORD (Deut 23), and was even called this by the Apostles, the disciples of our Lord Jesu(s) Christ:

This is he, that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us…Acts 7:38.

House of Judah = Judah / Jew / Judean

The word Jew, meaning Judean or one from the house of Judah, first occurs in the scripture in 2Kings 16:6 AFTER the civil war and split of the Nation into Israel and Judah: Judah was referred to as “Jews” in the KJV and Judeans while Israel was referred to as the Nation or Gentiles of Israel. While biblical Judeans called them selves Gentiles time and again this fact is missed by the seminarian talmudic teaching of Judeo- christianity now flooding the church buildings, all to keep clear line of division between “those who call them selves Jews” and the Gentile Church. Biblical Jews or Judeans are not a different or separate race from the house of Israel’s Gentile tribes but are brothers of one common father Jacob / Israel. The house of Judah was brought back in to the land of Judah / Judea after the Babylonian / Medo-Persian captivity, in the time of Ezra and Nehemiah, unto them were committed the oracles of God. (Rom 3:2), Circumcision, and the keeping of the Law, the only difference between an Israelite Gentile’s status with God and a Judean Jew is that they were living in the land given to Abraham and keeping the Covenantal Laws of God. The tribe of Judah and divers of the other tribes who lived in a portion the land of Judah including Jerusalem rebuilt the temple and worshiped YHWH God until the Temples final destruction in 70 A.D. by the Roman army according to God’s promise for Judah’s disobedience by following Traditional talmudic rules rather than the faith of Christ and the Law of God.

I will make a New Covenant

with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:

Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers …

Hebrews 8:8-9

The terms of the New Covenant in Jeremiah 31 and Hebrews 8 address’ the House of Israel and the House of Judah, this can be in no way spiritual on account of the covenant mentioning that it was Israel and Judah’s fathers who YHWH had brought out of the land of Egypt and was a husband to. If the New Covenant does not mention “Gentiles” where is their place in the covenant? If their place is not among the promises made to their ancestral fathers that they would become a multitude of Nations / Gentiles where is the new Covenant they are placed in?

If you consider your self a New Testament or New Covenant Christian where do you fit in the Covenant?

Ask your self these Questions

Do any other people in the world fit this Biblical Reality other than the European Christians of the last 2000 years?

Have any other race of people invented a printing press with the bible as the first type set page?

Have any other peoples printed and distributed more bibles than the Europeans alone?

Have any other peoples evangelize more to the world in the name of Christ than those who are European?

Do any other people match the physical descriptions of ancient Israelites / Hebrews more than Europeans? Song 5:8

Not even those who call themselves Jews of our modern day can claim these facts about them selves alone, if it were not for European Christian society of the last 1200 years those who call them selves Jews which are anti-christ by their own talmudic religion, would have had no place to host themselves. European Christians have even been a blessing to the anti-christs in there blindness to the truth of who they really are (Rev 2:9 and 3:9).
