The Gospel of the Kingdom

Pt. 2

John The Angel

The Messenger of the Covenant

 

Notice the way in which the Gospel of the kingdom evangelized:

Mar_1:15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

This statement has within it’s construct some crucial evidence in finding the meaning of the statement it self.

  • The time is fulfilled

  • The kingdom of God is at hand

  • Repent and Believe (Faith or Trust) in the Gospel

    (Due to the nature of the points Repentance shall lead, followed by The Kingdom which is at hand.)

This is the scope of our Study in this series: to understand as best we can these 3 aspects of Christ’s ministry which we know as well from the biblical testimony that John was preaching this same Kingdom and Gospel message of Repentance:

Mat_3:1 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judah,

Mat 3:2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

and Matthew’s record as well tells us that Christ used the same language as John:

Mat_4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

This message of the Kingdom come was directed in ministry towards the same people the entirety of Scripture is written to:

Mat_10:5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:

Mat 10:6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

Mat 10:7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

The constructed order of Mar_1:15 sets the fulfillment of this Kingdom of God accompanied by repentance and the Gospel: briefly, it is of necessity to allow for the Greek words which are translated ‘Repent’ and ‘Gospel’ as to assure the collective evidence needed for establishing a definition. As the LXX is as well written in Greek it is a great translation of the Hebrew Scriptures to ascertain this evidence. As well there are some simple definitions as told by James Strong (one of the most used Lexicographers to date on Biblical Greek and Hebrew, and his works are greatly apprised by the Bible reading community as, it is upon much of his efforts to give the common English speaker a way to see beyond the English version, it is upon his efforts that a foundation was laid for many other tools we now have nearly 200 years later! And frankly it bothers me to hear many lesser men of biblical language to belittle Strong’s efforts as to elevate there own inferior work, when honestly one compares. I and others may disagree with a point of language derivation as sited by Strong, or as I often do go beyond the definition of the root word Strong’s gives on to the words composition, yet one should honestly acknowledge such a man’s efforts.)

When we consider the great number of references and direct sightings of this announcement of the Kingdom by John the baptist, Christ, and the apostles, we see foremost a call to repentance.

The Announcement of the Kingdom’s coming was a call to repentance.

Repent… or μετανοειτε / Meta-noeite

G3340

μετανοέω

metanoeō

met-an-o-eh’-o

From G3326 (meta) and G3539 (nooce)

Strong’s puts it: to think differently or afterwards, that is, reconsider (morally to feel compunction): – repent.

Some translations have this compound word translated ‘changing mind’, which conveys the same point as repentance in the liter English construction, yet it is the accompaniment of the mind changer that the statement gains it’s direction. In Mark it was ‘Repent and Believe the Gospel ‘, in Matthew it was ‘repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand’, the direction in which this sets the tone of repentance is based upon the affect this faith in the Gospel of the Kingdom has on ones mind, how it changes it. In other words, what ever was expected or known from the Scriptures, which was convayed by the Holy Spirit through the Law and Prophets in the written word of God, prior to the coming of John and Christ, is what was being preached in the statement ‘the kingdom of God (or Heaven) is at hand’, the beliefe, faith or trust which Christ and John were calling the people to was a fore spoken of and this message was now being preached that it was at hand or within reach, or able to be handled due to it’s nearness, the statement ‘at hand’ references the nearness of the kingdom, as to be close enough to handle it, know it or feel it . The call was to have an impact upon the mind of the people to know they had the kingdom near to them at this good-announcement known to us by the Saxon phrase Gospel.

Most Bible readers know that the Gospel is ‘the good news’ or ‘good tidings’, as a literal understanding of it’s meaning, yet it is of importance before moving on to consider some logic and language on this word ‘Gospel’ and it’s Greek original eu-anggelion.

Some logic:

Every Gospel is in need of a good- spealer or in Greek, every eu-anggelion is in need of a good angel, in moder English we now pronounce this word: evangel, yet it is Identical in meaning as the word Gospel. The later portion of the word is none other than angel which literally means in Greek ‘a messenger’, which may be a human messenger sent from YHWH or perhaps one from heaven.

The English Germanic word Gospel, derives it’s origin from the original Saxon form “Go(o)d-Spell” which is a literal translation of the Greek and or Hebrew compound word, consider one of the most early “English” translations of the story of Christ, the translation of the

“West Saxon Gospels” of 1175:

Mar_1:1 Her ys godspelles angin hælendes cristes godes sune.

Literaly. Here is the Good-spell again (archaic. beginning, from the top) of the Healer Christ god’s son.

(“Jesu” literally means Savior or Healer)

This is how the majority of the world has started to use the archaic Saxon word for “Eu-aggel”, we now pronounce ‘Evangel’ as the word is easily seen by the mindful English speller: Go-Spel which is a compound word for God – Spel or Good- Spell: as the meaning of the Greek “Eu” is “Good” turned to the shortened form of “God”, and then contracted to “go”. As for the Archaic “spel” which is modernly “spell”, yet it’s more rooted definition is defined by

Noah Webster in 1828 is

Spell

SPELL, n. [The verb primarily signifies to throw or drive, and is probably formed on the root of L. pello. In some of the application of spell, we observe the sense of turn. We observe the same in throw, warp, cant, &c.]

1. A story; a tale.

So the “Go-spel” is simply the archaic Saxon words “Go(o)d-spell”

The Beginning of the Gospel

So in the Scriptures of Israel written in Greek we are looking for the time being fulfilled that will indicate the above aspects of this kingdom by repentance, faith and Good-message.

As sited above and in context with both messages of John and Christ, this Good-Message was accompanied by repentance or a mind change. As well prior in Mark as sited above to show the archaic use of the word Gospel we have Mark’s announcement

Tyndale 1526:

Mar_1:1 The beginning of the Gospell of Jesu Christ the son of God,

Mar_1:2 as it is written in the prophets, behold I send my messenger (angel) before thy face which shall prepare thy way before thee.

Mar_1:3 The voice of one that crieth in the wilderness: prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight (Eu-theias: lit. good-placment).

Mar_1:4 John did baptise in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance, for the remission of sins. (Trans. Tyndale 1526)

Notice how that the messenger or angel, John the Baptist, is the one crying in the wilderness and calling for the paths to be made ‘straight’ or Eu-theias, it is within this Greek word that we find the first portion of the Eu-angel, that is Eu or good, the good or well placed path or straight path, thus when we consider this from the Greek perspective, the Gospel or Evangelion is the message of the straight path, this was John’s contribution to the Gospel.

Since in this very place we are told this is the beginning of Christ’s Gospel and it is ad-fixed with Mark’s own understanding of this message he pulls from the prophets to validate his claim: Seemingly by compare the Prophet quoted is

Mal_3:1 Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me (Heb. and Gk: literally says ‘before my face’ L-PaN-Y / לפני) : and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.

Mal 3:2 But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap:

Mal 3:3 And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.

Mal 3:4 Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the LORD, as in the days of old, and as in former years.

Mal 3:5 And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger , and fear not me, saith the LORD of hosts.

Mal_3:6 For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

This ending sounds strikingly familiar in sentiment to Heb_13:8

The LAW

and

The Messenger,

and

The WAY

Before moving to the next prophet it is advantagous to also consider the siting from the Law and it’s context which Malachi is quoting:

Exo_23:20 Behold, I send an Angel (Messenger, in the Hebrew the word is MLAK) before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.

Exo 23:21 Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him.

Exo 23:22 But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries.

Exo 23:23 For mine Angel shall go before thee, and bring thee in unto the Amorites, and the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites: and I will cut them off.

Exo 23:24 Thou shalt not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do after their works: but thou shalt utterly overthrow them, and quite break down their images.

Exo 23:25 And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.

Exo 23:26 There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: the number of thy days I will fulfil.

Exo 23:27 I will send my fear before thee, and will destroy all the people to whom thou shalt come, and I will make all thine enemies turn their backs unto thee.

This particular aspect of this siting in reference is to John, he was the messenger, the angel, the MLAK, whom the people were to fear and obey. It is easy to find ones self applying the statement to Christ, yet it is very directly referencing John. As Christ is the way.

Joh_14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Joh 14:7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

 

MLAK references a kingdom role, in the Hebrew, the exact same Hebrew word is used regularly to describe a king, it is not insignificant that this Gospel we are are focusing on is the Good-Message of the Kingdom, and the Hebrew word used here for messenger is as well the word for king.

 

 

The Vulgate’s Latin text of the prior , which is a translation of earlier manuscripts in 405ad by Jerome forwards truly the quote of the Prophet Isaiah as well as in both mark and Matthew’s reference to the Preaching of John’s Gospel.

Joh_1:23 He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias.

Isa 40:1 Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God.

Isa 40:2 Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the LORD’S hand double for all her sins.

Notice just before getting to the quote John uses, the context is of Jerusalem’s return from warfare, her iniquity is pardoned, her punishment time is accomplished, this is called to attention on account of the situation of

The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand…Mar_1:15

Isa_40:3 The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.

Isa 40:4 Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:

Isa 40:5 And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

Isa 40:6 The voice said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry? All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field:

Isa 40:7 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: because the spirit of the LORD bloweth upon it: surely the people is grass.

Isa 40:8 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.

So we see the mountains being brought low, the valleys being raised, thus a leveling is having by the evangelism of John, repetance shown and confessed in Baptism is enacted in preparation for the coming Kingdom which is at hand, the reminder of the meaning of the message is the illustration given by Isaiah of grass which flourishes and fades and dies away, yet the eternal aspect of this Gospel, this good message, these good tidings cried upon the mountains is: ‘All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field:..The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever. ‘

Echoed in the preaching of John to the same function of the Holy Spirit:

Mat_3:11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit, and fire:

Mat 3:12 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.

Then we hear:

Isa_40:9 O Zion, that bringest good tidings (Ev-angelizing: Gospel), get thee up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings (Gospel), lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of Judah,

Notice to Zion, notice the evangelism going forward, the Gospel, the good-message:

Behold your God! Isa_40:10 Behold, the Lord YHWH will come with strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.

Isa 40:11 He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.

That is the faith of the’Good-Message’ it is the ‘straight path’, He is the ‘Way the Truth and the Life ‘ found in the coming Shepard and King of Zion who rules by YHWH’s arm!

So here is my question in ending this 2nd part of this Message,

  • Is this the Gospel you understand in the preaching of John and of Christ?
  • Is it a call to repentance by the word of our God that stands for ever?

that is a mind change or a repentance on account of the Kingdom which is at hand?

  • Is it a Gospel, a good message that the wicked will wither away by the Spirit of God?
  • That those who walk by faith in these GOOD tidings, Evangelion of the Way the Truth and the Life of Christ which we come to the Father?

This is a call to repentance, to walk in the way of God’s WORD, to walk in the Truth, of God’s WORD and to walk in the Life of God’s word in order to get to the promised land which Christ leads us to. Repentance leads us to John’s Baptism, John has lead us to Christ, Christ’s Way leads us to the Father…and there is no other way to achieve the Kingdom, to enter into it but by Him.

Please do not misunderstand, this is not speaking of Faith with out works, I am speaking of obedience to the voice of the Word of God Breather by his Spirit for us to walk in to show our sanctification by the message we have received:

Mat 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

Mat 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

And to the point first point of Mar_1:15 the time of fulfillment, we shall explore in the next message, as well as how the wicked seek to take the kingdom by force…

The Gospel of the Kingdom

Part 1

Christ the King and Head

Christ the Word and Foundation

There are 2 major points which should be made in both the understanding from which this message and all others offered come forth, that is that first and foremost to quash the insolent supposition put forward by those who have, as well as those who may misidentify the importance of the focus upon the Word of God, the Law of YHWH and the Testimonies of Scripture. As there are those who suppose that upholding the perfection of Scripture beyond doubt of it’s abrogation in any way or by any force, is not ‘christian’, insomuch as this faith in the validity and immovable foundation of the WORD of GOD particularly as it pertains to the Law of God is even to the unknowing mind, in opposition to Jesus Christ; that is there are those who are offended at the Gospel of the Scriptural record and Testimony as contained in the faith of those such as my self who try and practice the Law of YHWH God to the best of their ability while living in the flesh, just as well even by those thing which we can not practice, therefore we do not practice them, by our belief that those things contained in the Law of God are nonetheless Perfect, such as the tabernacle and or temple order, or the operation of the priesthood, as well as ever offering and or sacrifice ever spoken of by the Word of God, all of it is perfect, every WORD of God is true, pure faithful.

It is to this point the following shall go forward, upon this premise

Heb_13:6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

Heb 13:7 Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God:

whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.

The APB Trans says: whom contemplating the result of the behavior, you imitate the belief!”

Heb 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

Heb 13:9 Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines.

It is by this Christ who is the Same yesterday today and forever that we place our faith and trust in, to direct our behavior or conversation.

Thus all messages which I offer come from the simplicity of Faith in the inerrant WORD of YHWH God, that is a Biblically Realistic understanding which seeks to show that the Bible as the WORD of God: Perfect, inerrant, and divinely inspired in it’s origin, all of my Faith from which we get our Hope is through this book and the belief that it has been preserved through the Grace and Providence of He That Is God, the Scriptures of course bear this out continually, but for one who doubts the relevance, and Salvation contained in the Scriptures as Holy there is no Chapter and verse which will ever be enough to convince (as the KJV calls) the gainsayers (in the Greek the word gainsayers is translated from Anti-logo literally those who are against the word).

Yet for those who have tasted and seen that YHWH is Good and that God is true but every man a liar, we know this:

Rom 15:4 For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.

As well we may have our hope in 2Ti_3:15-17 which tells us that it is the knowing of the holy scriptures…are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. and that : All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

This is the lesson for the Church, the Ecclasia of Christ. The Prophet and King David tells us Concerning the Law that that it is Perfect in Psa_19:7,

Psa_12:6 The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.

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.

No matter what your eschatological persuasion is or what your denominational endoctrination is, the Fact is that the if we believe by faith that we have gained Salvation by that which is taught in the Bible then we consent that the Word of God is true, and if we consent that it is true then according to Psa_119:160 God’s… word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.

Thus I offer in every message we shall cover and have covered that every Word of God is true, it is Truth, it is applicable in some way to our life as followers of Christ as Christians, no matter what part of the bible: old testament or new testament, Law, prophets, histories or wisdom, All which are written in the scriptures are founded upon the Law of God as their foundation, every Word of God rests on that primary foundation founded in God’s Law, as our ability to see the faculties of Judgment used by God Almighty. From Genesis to Deuteronomy every word which is written in the Pentateuch is perfect and true it is as Hebrews 13: the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

The rule which keeps us back from Being carried about with divers and strange doctrines, it is the foundation of the Church, the LawfulCommandments, statutes, precepts and Judgments of YHWH,.

One might object at this point as many have done to be in times past after making this statment, and site

Eph_2:20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;

Eph 2:21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:

Eph 2:22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

Which brings me to the second major point of understanding.

That these two statements are one and the same, that is Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. 2Ti_2:19

Iniquity is translated from the word a-dikias, the letter A being the prefixed negative particle to the word for righteousness, thus, literally means to be ‘void of righteousness’. This Iniquity which stands as a determination of the seal of God upon a proper foundation is then the naming of the name of Christ in conjunction with the departure of unrighteousness. Thus the foundation taught by the Apostles and prophet having Jesu Christ as the head corner stone of the foundation, creates a building fitly framed together to habit the Spirit of God, this is describing nothingness than the foundation we are called to in the principles of the doctrines of Christ a foundation founded in repentance from this unrighteousness, that is that Jesus Christ is the WORD made flesh according to John 1:1-14 for the very reason David tells us that the word of YHWH is true from the beginning and shall endure forever, that is that the Word of God, as found in His law which divides and separates good from evil, and teaches ADaM Man Judgment by YHWH’s directives is personified in the Man Jesus Christ, thus offering us a holistic foundation to be built upon:

Consider:

Heb_5:12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.

Heb 5:13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.

Heb 5:14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

Heb 6:1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,

Heb 6:2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.

Heb 6:3 And this will we do, if God permit.

Our calling is to move beyond the milk, which is found in the Law of God and repentace from the sin which has held us in bondage, disallowing us as

Eph_2:12 reads: That at that time we were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:

Eph 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus we who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.

Eph 2:14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;

Eph 2:15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;

Eph 2:16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:

Eph 2:17 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.

It is here that we may now build and move beyond the Idea that the Law of God is to arduous or strenuous to allow us to use it as our measure of righteousness, for Christ has given us the ability as both head of the Church and Foundation, it is exactly by His blood we water and hydrate the mortar of this holy temple, this house hold of God, this citizenship of the Common wealth of Israel; it is by the blood of His covenant we are empowered to believe in the whole word of God, and having no fear of the enmity as long as we are sealed with the proof of our calling by our departure from iniquity/ unrighteousness as we discover it’s hiding place in our life.

Hebrews goes on to say in Chapter 6

Heb_6:4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost,

Heb 6:5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,

Heb 6:6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.

Thus on these two point it is concluded that the two are in Biblical reality one and the same, that is that in every word ever spoken by YHWH God Almighty is the person of Jesus Christ, thus I can never nor can any one ever quote any portion of the Holy writ of God’s Word and not speak of the perfect life of Jesus Christ the Son of God, who is the Word made flesh. Our perfect example.

AMEN

In the last message A Common Law for a Common-Wealth,

The Common Law of God, the entirety of the focus was concerning the Government which the Christian church should have, as it pertains to: Self Government, Family

Government, National Government and Land Government; when the word Government is used attention should not only be called to the Ideas of what we call principalities or municipalities, that is the rule of civil conduct prescribed by the supreme or principal power in a state, rather our mind should be drawn to the Idea of Control or restraint in what so ever governmental position YHWH God has placed any particular member of the Church of Jesu Christ in.

It is here we exchange with our prior subject matter, as we are told very plainly that:

1Co_11:3 …the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

As well

Eph_5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

 

Col_1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

Thus, The Church as spoken of according to the Scriptures is as well a functionary part of this Government process as it is explained above and seen in conjunction with the Laws of God explained in the Common law of God particularly in all of the family organized and regulated order of the Congregation, which is a synonym for the Church, as when we read such words in the LXX we often time find the very same word as translated from the Greek Ecclesia, which is the Church in Brithonic English, thus when we read this family constructed Church or Ecclesia, congregation of the LORD we understand why such laws contained in Deu_23:1-6 are mentioned.

It was this fruitful multiplicity mandated to ADaM for the purpose of Dominion according to Gen 1:26-28, a Governance and Godly Government is that which starts within the individual Covenant recipient joined in marriage by a Godly union which is fruitful and terminates with National Government. This is the Origin of the Church, and it is for this Cause Christ is recognized as the head or husband of the Congregation of Israel otherwise known as the Church or Ecclesial, which is the body of Christ.

The fruit of this union continues the Seed of the Word in the hearts of the Covenant children, as Christ taught plainly concerning the Gospel of the Kingdom of God in Luk_8:11The seed is the word of God.

It is this seed in the fertile hearts of the children of the Kingdom, the church which will as well Bless the world and all the families of the earth accordingly to the dominion mandate which the descendants of ADaM had received as an inheritance, that which was passed on to Abraham Isaac and Jacob Israel Gen_12:3; Gen_18:18; Gen_22:18; Gen_26:4; Gen_28:14, a Covenant inheritance which then had come full circle in the one specific seed which came in the ma Jesu the Christ. Thus, is this holistic Government, as pronounced by God the Father through His WORD which He had caused to be made flesh according to Joh_1:1-14 which stands in this age as our savior, our Lord, our prince, our King, it is Christ the Head of the Church which serves as our example.

The book of Hebrews starts in saying

Heb_1:1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,

Heb 1:2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

Heb 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;

Heb 1:4 Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.

Heb 1:5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?

Heb 1:6 And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.

Heb 1:7 And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.

Heb 1:8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.

Heb 1:9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

It is unto this Government we as the Church are called by one calling, unto the biblical and Lawful New Covenant made in the blood of Christ, according to commandments, statutes and judgments of Almighty God we are Governed, that is by His Law, the Same Law which defines sin and calls the Sons of God into perfection by the love of God:

The ambassador of the Gospel of Christ, John tells us this:

1Jn_3:3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.

1Jn 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.

1Jn_3:5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.

1Jn 3:6 Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.

our Christ and brother is said to have in him is no sin.

So it is that even in the affairs of this life amid a crooked and perverse generation we are told it was to this calling like Christ hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:

1Pe_2:22 Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:

1Pe 2:23 Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:

1Pe 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

1Pe 2:25 For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.

This is full Government is entirely bound up in the man Jesu the Christ, and in His conduct, He as the Word made flesh had all things in His Body and life under subjection to the the Word which was spoken before His flesh had ever been made, the essence of His perfection being found in the same Holy Spirit which reveled the Gospel through out the Scriptural testament, it is to this Faith and life we as Christians are called to walk if indeed we are members in particular of the Body of Christ and Children of the Kingdom.

If it would ever be asked, where in this common law is Christ? or Where in this Common-Wealth of Israel we described is Christ? Our emphatic answer should be as Head! and as Head as King, and as King it is Christ who is Head of state, the Head of the Kingdom of God and of Heaven, and of the Common-Wealth the body politic of the Church.

It is to this Kingdom of God which our focus must be now be called after establishing by the Scriptures the Headship of the Son of YHWH over the tribes of Jacob as His righteous servant according to Isa_49:3-9, as well it is to self Government we are called to press by love closer into image of Christ.

This introduction to this new focus is aimed at entrance into the kingdom, into the Church and into the Body of Christ. Notice the way in which the Gospel of the kingdom evangelized:

Mat_3:1-2 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,  And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

and

Mat_4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

and

Mat_10:5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:

Mat 10:6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

Mat 10:7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

It is to this point the next part of this message shall focus upon.

Thou Shalt NOT

Commit Adultery

Exodus 20:14/Deuteronomy 5:18

(I would like to start by asking those who have not heard the compilation on the 5th Commandment of honoring ones parents to first listen to that message before this one or shortly after, as the two commandments are tightly tied together with blue thread.)

In order to understand the aspects of this Commandment within the Common Law of God Adultery must first be defined, starting with the English definition of the word found in our English Bibles:

Noah Webster’s 1828 D. of A. E.

ADUL’TERY, n. [L. adulterium. See Adulterate.]

1. Violation of the marriage bed; a crime, or a civil injury, which introduces, or may introduce, into a family, a spurious offspring.

Adulterate

ADUL’TERATE, v.t. [L. adultero, from adulter, mixed, or an adulterer; ad and alter, other.]

To corrupt, debase, or make impure by an admixture of baser materials; as, to adulterate liquors, or the coin of a country.

ADUL’TERATE, v.i. To commit adultery. Obs.

ADUL’TERATE, a. Tainted with adultery; debased by foreign mixture.

The fact that Adultery and Adulteration are so closely related may come as a shock to those who use words found in the bible with out care to their meaning. The fact that one who commits Adultery in Reality is Adulterating purity as it that purity was either created and ordained to be by YHWH God.

Defining Biblical Adultery

Greek Adultery

G3431

μοιχεύω

moicheuō

moy-khyoo’-o

From G3432; to commit adultery: – commit adultery.

However this Greek word is a compound which which has become a verb made up a simple idea English speaking people can understand with little effort: the compound is made of

G3427 μοί /moi

The simpler form of G1698; to me: – I, me, mine, my.

and

From a derivation of χέω cheō from which Chaos which we may understand easily as well, chaos in the the Greek understanding is the idea of pouring a thing out of a channel or vacancy, it is as we think of it in disorder.

Thus we have :μοι Moi / My + χευσ /Chaos = My Chaos being used as a verb in moixoseis

Hebrew Adultery

NAP :

H5003: A primitive root; to commit adultery…

The Hebrew word translated into our English word Adultery is the word NAP;

NAP is complex but expressive as it is a contracted compound word, like the word king-dom (kings-dominion), letters are dropped out to create a new word, common in Hebrew and English. Hear we may see the root NAH / נאה, meaning ( H4998 ) be at home, be beautiful, become, be, blended with the word AP/ אף ( H637 ) meaning accession (used as an adverb or conjugation); also… , and thus meaning ‘home also’ or ‘beauty also’, it seems to represent the idea of one going beyond the pleasantness of family, as in all forms of Adultery this is what the man of woman of the Common-Wealth of Israel does, they go beyond the home life YHWH God has ordained, thus adulterating the society.

In the literal Hebrew scripture the wording is לאnot תנאף׃ shalt thou adulter’, in the commandment the word is prefixed with the Hebrew ת / Th meaning ‘thou shalt’ ‘shalt thou’ and the English translators took the liberty assure it’s understanding as law by adding the synonymous meaning of ‘commit’. The exact wording of Th-nap is only used used 3 times in the Hebrew Scriptures and of that three times two times in the very commandment found in Exo_20:14 and Deu_5:18 , it is from this third use from Jer_3:9 some context is found:

Jer_3:8 And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery (NAP-Eh) I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.

Jer 3:9 And it came to pass through the lightness of her whoredom, that she defiled the land, and committed adultery (Th-NAP) with stones and with stocks.

In verse 8 the root word NAP is used in the word NAPEh which literally means ‘adultery of’ as may be seen in the Bishop’s bible, yet our actual word is seen in in 3:9 in “committed adultery”

This metaphoric verse shows the English definition given prior of Adultery and Adulteration, as the Adultery of whorish Israel was compared to a married woman, and the Adulteration what is done with trees and stones!

Adultery strikes at every aspect of Order

Adultery strikes at every aspect of ADaM’s purpose of creation

  • in the blessed mandate of dominion governance of multiplicity and fruitfulness and subdueance by replenishing (as described in the prior compilation on killing),

  • willful adultery as well hates God and neighbor and is reversive of the love commanded in the proto-commandments:

  • Adultery strikes at the 1st commandment in it’s willful violation, challenging God’s supreme sovereignty to dictate according to HIS Word sexual relations.

  • It strikes against the 2nd Commandment as it again sets ones self up or system of worship up which caters to ones self as the Idol of the heart to be bowed to,

  • It strikes against the 3rd Commandment by vainly taking YHWH God’s Name in vain by voiding the people of God’s calling,

  • It strikes against the 4th Commandment in that Holy worship is polluted by the actions and products of adultery,

  • It strikes against the the 5th Commandment, particularly, as it devalues or dishonors ones parentage it it’s very reproductive action or it’s lack thereof both of with will remove the people of God’s name from out of the Land,

  • It a strike against the 6th Commandment in that both the product of adulterous relations is illegitimate and should not have been created, nor are those which have committed to adulteration both have forfeit their lives before Almighty God, they have both killed them selves before the face of Almighty God and in certain cases the debased offspring they have made.

Historic look at Adultery

Consider Josephus a contemporary of our Lord’s time and how they viewed adultery:

1. AS for adultery, Moses forbade it entirely, as esteeming it a happy thing that men should be wise in the affairs of wedlock; and that it was profitable both to cities (society) and families (races) that children should be known to be genuine. He also abhorred men’s lying with their mothers, as one of the greatest crimes; and the like for lying with the father’s wife, and with aunts, and sisters, and sons’ wives, as all instances of abominable wickedness. He also forbade a man to lie with his wife when she was defiled by her natural purgation: and not to come near brute beasts; nor to approve of the lying with a male, which was to hunt after unlawful pleasures on account of beauty. To those who were guilty of such insolent behavior, he ordained death for their punishment. Antiq. Book 3, CH12:Vrs1

The question of what adultery is from a biblical and natural perspective in reality is a subject every Christian should wish to know, the 7th commandment is not only a prohibition of one who adulterates his neighbors wife by an illicit sexual union, but is the biblical word used to cover all sexual immorality including affairs of Breaking Wedlock, Miscegenation, Incest, Bestiality, and Homosex.

Hebrews 13:4

Marriage is Honourable in All,

and

The Bed Undefiled:

but

Whoremongers and Adulterers
God Will Judge.

Now that Adultery has been defined from the language and the context of scripture let us ask both Nature and Natures God for the Laws which forbids and dictate the committing and abhorrence of the practice and it’s effect on the common wealth.

As the focus of the Common Law of God regarding every commandment in the 10 is imperative on society, and at the introduction prior we have seen how the commandments hinge and rest at diverse and synonymous times one upon each other, with the Command against Adultery this is easily seen, even more so in reflection upon the prior discussion on the Common Law and their impacts in violation and adherence upon the Common-Wealth of Israel particularly when considering the first 5 commandments of God, especially the 5th, in honoring or valuing ones parents and thus parentage, the scope of Adultery as adulteration becomes all the more clear.

Call to mind the statement made in the compilation on the 5th Commandment of Honor thy Parents: “Adultery, fornication, and whoredom are ultimate devaluations or dishonor to ones parents and parentage, by allowance of an illegitimate offspring to grow in violation of the Law of God will destroy the Covenant upon which the Law is founded thereby dissolving the bond of all. “

Lev_20:21-22 says, Ye shall therefore keep all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: that the land, whither I bring you to dwell therein, spue you not out.

All forms of adulteration are literally a curse and a strike against ones parentage, a dishonor that will cause the Land to spew us out as opposed to prolong our days. Thus in it’s entirety the adulteration of race, nation, tribe and family genealogy and by thus inheritance is in focus, notwithstanding that those natural adulteration which could never produce offspring are as well condemned due to it’s adulteration of natural affection.

Unlike the command on killing, there is no exception is given in the Scriptures for the Governing Authorities or any citizen to engage in Adultery; rather we find fornication and com Adultery which bring forth adulterated children being condemned in the lives of Kings and Priests (Ezra and Nehemiah).

Adultery is perhaps more murderous to a legitimate society that murder it self, as in the case of Adultery when committed and unpunished, when it is acknowledged by it’s spawn it offers a seed bed for the germination of bastard and fruitless affections towards YHWH God and HIS Law, in as much as the spawn of such a union will acknowledge that it’s life was never to be.

The Organic Laws

of

Creation will guide this study

of the

Common-Wealth’s Common Law On Adultery

In order to discuss this subject of Adultery 5 categories have been enumerated to isolate the content for discussion:

Miscegenation, Bestiality, Homosex, Incest, Breaking of Wedlock;

The Organic laws of Creation will guide this study as the bedrock of the Common-Wealth’s Common Law:

The Adultery of Miscegenation is first brought in to scope, that is the Adulteration of Genetic Purity, this is not only in the Adulteration of ADaM, but as well in the Adulteration of all kinds.

In the very beginning of creation as the Scripture relays it we find a simple statement, easy for the farmer, the husbandman, and the ethnologist to understand “After his kind or “After their kind”

Gen 1:24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.

Gen 1:25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good. The Hebrew word MYN-Eh is see in both creation and replenishment after the flood in: Gen_1:11; Gen_1:12; Gen_1:21; Gen_1:24; Gen_1:25; Gen_6:20; Gen_7:14; Gen_8:19.

For our sakes, no doubt, this is written…

In the case of all creation their is an order after kind, and this is so with the living souls as well. As the wise and accepted apostle Paul dictates concerning the laws which pertain to beasts (1Co_9:9-10) “…Doth God take care for oxen? Or saith he it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written…” so the Law build upon this organic order of kind may be plainly known:

Lev_19:19 Ye shall keep my statutes. Thou shalt not let thy cattle gender with a diverse kind: thou shalt not sow thy field with mingled seed: neither shall a garment mingled of linen and woollen come upon thee. ( LXX-Gender-κατο-χευσεις / Kata xeusis, Kata: down, beside, against, and the same ending in the Greek word for Adultery moi-Xeusis / chaos)

Deu_22:9 Thou shalt not sow thy vineyard with divers seeds: lest the fruit of thy seed which thou hast sown, and the fruit of thy vineyard, be defiled.

Deu 22:10 Thou shalt not plow with an ox and an ass together.

Deu 22:11 Thou shalt not wear a garment of divers sorts, as of woollen and linen together.

The law is direct and simple the mixing of kinds is not pleasing to GOD Almighty, from ADaM to beast, from beast to plant life YHWH God is desirous of HIS Creation to stay in order, an order which modern man is ever tampering with, from ADaM to bacteria.

As in the case of the prior laws the logic of God is clear on the reason why such is forbidden : “lest the fruit of thy seed which thou hast sown, and the fruit of thy vineyard, be defiled.”

ADaM

In Genesis 1:26 directly following the account of the people of ADaM are made according to their kind

“And God said, Let us make ADaM in our image, after our likeness…”, in this case we have both a physical and a Spiritual being being created after God’s kind, that is His image and likeness.

…”and let them have dominion”…ADaM was an ordained creation, made for Governance of the earth.

In the detailed account of Genesis 2, we are given a contextual understanding to found our Common Law there after, an Organic construct which shows the normality of ADaM’s Society:

Gen_2:18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

Gen 2:19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.

Gen 2:20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.

Bestiality

Here plainly the simplicity of bestiality being abhorrent to the Creator is shown. That is that all formed life, and every living creature, formed also of the ground is not the same as the ADaM Kind and is not fit for him to take as a help mate (meet).

To this act of Adulteration the Law of God says:

Exo 22:19 Whosoever lieth with a beast shall surely be put to death.

Lev 18:23 Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion.

Lev 20:15 And if a man lie with a beast, he shall surely be put to death: and ye shall slay the beast.

Lev 20:16 And if a woman approach unto any beast, and lie down thereto, thou shalt kill the woman, and the beast: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

Homosexuality among ADaM

Gen_1:27 So God created ADaM in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

Gen 2:21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;

Gen 2:22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

Gen 2:23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

Gen 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it…

This blessed mandate is the very command of male and female made in the likeness and image of God, are to be being fruitful and multiply according to their ADaM Kind, Male and female creating living souls like them selves, the natural procreation process was instituted from the time of Creation, and is in no way as some suppose a product of the fall, or of a curse, as only the multiplication of pain in Childbirth is listed among the curses NOT childbirth it self.

When the Hebrew term for male and female is examined the intrinsic nature of conjugation is evident, male (ZKR/ mark makers) and female (NQuBH, marked, or punctured) created he them.

The Common Law founded upon Normalcy was instituted thus:

Lev_18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

Lev 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

Incest

By this same set of scriptures from Gen 1 and 2 the ordained marriage of unfamilial persons.

Incest is opposed in the nature of creation, as ADaM’s help meet was not his mother, sister or child in any form of natural generation, but was a special creation of Adam’s genetic flesh and bone but not related in the familial way. As Adam was created of the dust of the earth along with all other living creatures or souls, they are not permitted to be mates one to the other, nor indeed can they be in fact yet they are all of the family of dust but were created distinct, so Incest between mother, sister, and daughter is forbidden by the Law of God as a form of Adultery as well, supported in the construct of ADaM’s recieving of his mate by special generation created by the hand of Almighty God.

Lev 18:6 None of you shall approach to any that is near of kin to him, to uncover their nakedness: I am the LORD.

Though out Lev_18:1-30 and Lev_20:8-23 the likeness of YHWH God is seen on the matter, in the prohibiting of marriage to mother and father, sister or brother, son or daughter, aunt or uncle as well as other adulterous forms of engenderance. It is thus, by a study of the Hebrew ad Greek scriptures one may safley understand that ADaM was not an individual creation as one man but as a race or kind.

Thus all sexual immorality classified as adultery is able to be defended in the organic nature of creation both the pro and the con, that is the thou shalt and the thou shalt not in conjunction with those natural principals which govern generation.

Back to the Norm

Deu 23:17

There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel,

nor a whoremonger of the sons of Israel.

Gen 2:23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

The marital construct is imbued with this organic maxim of wedlock, that men of ADaM are to have wives taken from their own people, that is of their own bone and flesh, a command which follows threw out the Scriptural testament, offering the Christian the certainty of this Common Law forbidding Adultery and Adulteration of ones created kind.

Thus in the case of ADaM upon whom the focus of Scripture is upon, his creation mandate for blessing was contained in the command: “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion… (Gen_1:28, Gen_9:7)

It is in application of the simplicity of the knowledge found in the fruitfulness becoming defiled by Adulteration with other kinds the subject of what is call miscegenation is easily had in YHWH God’s creation of male and female of this particular kind of living creature or living soul called ADaM. The Hebrew word ADaM is a physiognomy term, that is it is descriptive of the visage of the kind called ADaM which as can we easily seen through out the Hebrew and English Scriptures has the meaning of a Ruddy or Blushing countenance, as any amateur bible student may see the meaning of Adam as meaning such in a concordance, or by looking up the word Hebrew word ‘ruddy’ in a KJV, one simple example of the use of the word ADaM is: Son_5:10 My beloved is white and ruddy, the chiefest among ten thousand. ( צחH6703 white ואדוםH122 and ruddy)

Looking at the Proper Wedlock

Gen_2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

Gen 2:25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

As God says it is not good for the ADaM to be alone, and has made a way for ADaM to have an help mate. Gen_2:18 This prize and blessing of Wedlock to affect dominion should be Coveted and protected by the families involved in marriage making.

In the very idea of cleaving to ones wife, particularly as the Hebrew word for cleave is DBaQH1692 which is the word used to describe a literal over taking in pursuit (Gen_31:23), particularly inheritance land seen Num_36:7 in the idea of keeping ones own inheritance, the end goal of wedlock. Through out the scriptures DBaQ references the keeping, taking, pursuing of a thing thus in the Genesis of this mater the cleaving of a man to his wife of his own flesh and bone is the keeping of wedlock is a thing to be perused, protected and defended by this final conclusion. In the start of this pursuit it is attainable to see.

Beware of all whoredom… chiefly…

Cosider the book of Tobit as found in the Apocrypha

Tobit_4:12-13 Beware of all whoredom, my son, and chiefly take a wife of the seed of thy fathers, and take not a strange woman to wife, which is not of thy father’s tribe: for we are the children of the prophets, Noe, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob: remember, my son, that our fathers from the beginning, even that they all married wives of their own kindred, and were blessed in their children, and their seed shall inherit the land. 13 Now therefore, my son, love thy brethren, and despise not in thy heart thy brethren, the sons and daughters of thy people, in not taking a wife of them

The Father YHWH is the headship holder and he is intimately engaged in helping his progeny find a help mate, this showing one of the ultimate safe guards against a poor marriage, an adulterous marriage , that parents are to be involved in the finding of spouses for their children.

Consider the lives of the patriarchs of our linage, consider Abraham heir of the dominion blessing as an inheritance:

Gen 24:2 And Abraham said unto his eldest servant of his house, that ruled over all that he had, Put, I pray thee, thy hand under my thigh:

Gen 24:3 And I will make thee swear by the LORD, the God of heaven, and the God of the earth, that thou shalt not take a wife unto my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I dwell:

Gen 24:4 But thou shalt go unto my country, and to my kindred, and take a wife unto my son Isaac.

We see as well our patriarchs actively looking with his headships guidance in finding an help meet (for all purposes) particularly in the act of reproduction or multiplying, as can be seen as well in Gen_1:27, Gen_2:20-21

Gen_27:46, Gen_28:1-2 …if Jacob take a wife of the daughters of Heth, such as these which are of the daughters of the land, what good shall my life do me? And Isaac called Jacob, and blessed him, and charged him, and said unto him, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan.

Gen 28:2 Arise, go to Padanaram, to the house of Bethuel thy mother’s father; and take thee a wife from thence of the daughters of Laban thy mother’s brother.

Isaac and Rebecah see the miscegenation which has caused Esau’s fornication and he is active in the marital process of Jacob making the right choice.

Ample scripture shows that the forbidden lineages of peoples who had fallen from grace, that is that they had fallen from heirship of the covenant passed on from Adam to the Gentiles of the 12 tribes of Israel.

In the conquest of the Land this Statute exclaimed again:

In the books of the Law it reads:

Exo 34:15 Lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and they go a whoring after their gods, and do sacrifice unto their gods, and one call thee, and thou eat of his sacrifice;

Exo 34:16 And (if) thou take of their daughters unto thy sons, and their daughters go a whoring after their gods, and make thy sons go a whoring after their gods.

Deu 7:3 Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son.

Deu 7:4 For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the LORD be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly.

Mamzer?

The very act of Israel adulterating with other Kinds and forbidden lineages of people who had prior adulterated them selves created an illegitimate offspring YHWH God calls a MeMuRZ:

Deu 23:1 He that is wounded in the stones, or hath his privy member cut off, shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD. ( A man who has removed his ability ro be fruitful and multiply)

Deu 23:2 A bastard (Mamzer) shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the LORD.

Deu 23:3 An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to their tenth generation shall they not enter into the congregation of the LORD for ever:

Deu 23:4 Because they met you not with bread and with water in the way, when ye came forth out of Egypt; and because they hired against thee Balaam the son of Beor of Pethor of Mesopotamia, to curse thee…Thou shalt not seek their peace nor their prosperity all thy days for ever.

Deu 23:7 Thou shalt not abhor an Edomite; for he is thy brother: thou shalt not abhor an Egyptian; because thou wast a stranger in his land.

Deu 23:8 The children that are begotten of them shall enter into the congregation of the LORD in their third generation.

The list above is specific as to ban citizenship in the Common-Wealth to those who have damaged there ability to create heirs of the Ecclesia or church, that is the body of the common-wealth of Israel contained in it’s ethnic people. Second in the list, directly behind he who can have no offspring of those who may not hold citizenship in the Ecclasia or church is the Bastard or Mamzer. In Germanic toughed the word bastard holds the same meaning as mamzer, that is to bastardize or adulter. In the Hebrew the word MaMZuR is a word which literally speaks of one who is ‘ MeM / spotted + ZuR/ strange’ or ‘stranger marred’, which is a reference to the physiognomy, in other words ‘they don’t look right’, seen literally in some translations such as the Jerusalem Bible simply say “race mixed”.

As a compound word of MeM + ZuR = MMZR the below is explained:

H3971 מוּם מאוּם m’ûm mûmAs if passive participle from an unused root probably meaning to stain; a blemish (physical or moral): – blemish, blot, spot.

H2114 זוּר zûr A primitive root; to turn aside (especially for lodging); hence to be a foreigner, strange, profane; specifically (active participle) to commit adultery: – (come from) another (man, place), fanner, go away, (e-) strange (-r, thing, woman).

To be a mamzer is simply to be a blemished / spotter or stained stranger and is the Hebrew used for a mongrel, while the word Mamzer may still be found in some dictionaries of the English language giving this very meaning.

H4464- ממזר / MMZR / MeMZuR From an unused root . to alienate; a mongrel, that is, born of a Jewish father and a heathen mother: – bastard.

The word Mamzer is still able to be found in dictionaries of the English language, as the word was once used by those who knew it’s meaning. As well the Ammonite and the Moabite are forever forbidden from entrance in to the Church of GOD, and the Edomite and Egyptian had full status as citizens after three generations. All of these in the list specifically reference female in marriage, this is known because of the strictness of Israelite inheritance laws, as all land ownership was solely held by literal children of Jacob, that is a member of one of the Tribes of Israel; as discussed in the 5th Commandment of the Common-Law, and this land could never be sold or lost by it’s original owners family Lev_25:1-55, thus this set of laws must define the offspring of a woman from a pure Israelite man.

Protective Measures

a

Blue print for Wedlock

The final provision in the Common Law for the Common-Wealth of Israel in the cleaving of men to their God-given wives, may be chiefly seen in the ultimate protection of Wedlock prior to and once had in marriage.

This is the Custom’s European Society hold and have that only in our more recent age has been striped away, statutes which aim at the preservation of genuine generations, according to Kind and Nation as well as Tribe and family. Briefly consider some of these protective measures:

Biblical wedlock or marriage is comprised of 3 facts between a male and a female which are all seated upon the prior organic and lawful foundation :

1st Permission of Headship, 2nd Dowry, 3rd Conjugal Consummation:

Biblically it may come as a shock to some, there is no priest, no preacher, no church, no temple required

Wedlock in a Biblical society is in the realm of civil law, while in a secular society it is considered ecclesiastical law; marriage is simply an exchange between families to affect the dominion mandate. Out side of wedlock no marriage may exist, once any of the elements enumerated are engaged in wedlock has initiated and the breaking thereof gains possibility as sin and or adultery.

For instance once betrothal, that is a promise of marriage in the future (we may call this engagement today) is given the same relative connection with any other than that person of promise is Adultery, it is Adultery in the same sense as we commonly understand it after a woman is fully married to a husband:

Deu_22:13 If any man take a wife, and go in unto her, and hate her,

Deu 22:14 And give occasions of speech against her, and bring up an evil name upon her, and say, I took this woman, and when I came to her, I found her not a maid:

Deu 22:15 Then shall the father of the damsel, and her mother, take and bring forth the tokens of the damsel’s virginity unto the elders of the city in the gate:

Deu 22:16 And the damsel’s father shall say unto the elders, I gave my daughter unto this man to wife, and he hateth her;

Deu 22:17 And, lo, he hath given occasions of speech against her, saying, I found not thy daughter a maid; and yet these are the tokens of my daughter’s virginity. And they shall spread the cloth before the elders of the city.

Deu 22:18 And the elders of that city shall take that man and chastise him;

Deu 22:19 And they shall amerce him in an hundred shekels of silver, and give them unto the father of the damsel, because he hath brought up an evil name upon a virgin of Israel: and she shall be his wife; he may not put her away all his days.

Deu 22:20 But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel:

Deu_22:21 Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father’s house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die: because she hath wrought folly in Israel, to play the whore in her father’s house: so shalt thou put evil away from among you.

(see next aspect for 22)

Deu 22:23 If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto an husband, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her;

Deu 22:24 Then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones that they die; the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city; and the man, because he hath humbled his neighbour’s wife: so thou shalt put away evil from among you.

Yet in the event conjugation is enacted with out Parental consent or Dowry to establish the witness of betrothal:

Deu_22:28 If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found;

Deu 22:29 Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel’s father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he hath humbled her, he may not put her away all his days.

Exo_22:16 And if a man entice a maid that is not betrothed, and lie with her, he shall surely endow her to be his wife.

Exo_22:17 If her father utterly refuse to give her unto him, he shall pay money according to the dowry of virgins.

Dowry in this sense is both the price of the bride as well as the punishment upon the father for having a loose daughter, punishment I say because no limit is placed upon a virtuous woman, her price is far above rubies. (Proverbs 31)

The fully and yet understood portion of Adultery that most, for now, in European Society still understand while little even among so called Christians practice is that of which is spoken of in the reserved verse of Deuternomy 22:22

Deu_22:22 If a man be found lying with a woman married to an husband, then they shall both of them die, both the man that lay with the woman, and the woman: so shalt thou put away evil from Israel.

As well we have the hard to swallow but biblicaly accurate list of scriptures which speak to the same sentament is the Common-Wealth of Israel:

Lev_20:10 And the man that committeth adultery with another man’s wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.

Christ’s reformation of Adultery?

For those who would oppose this righteous judgment of God, by imposing upon the Son of YHWH God Jesus Christ his opposition to this Judgment of the 7th Commandment in Joh_8:4-5,

Joh 8:3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,

Joh 8:4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.

Joh 8:5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?

Joh 8:6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.

Joh 8:7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

Joh 8:8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

Joh 8:9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

Consider the wording of the Law, as in John 8 simply, only a supposed woman caught in the act of adultery was presented for judgment while the adulterer, was not present, a requirement for the Capitol punishment by Israel’s Government to have before judgment as seen plainly in the texts above. Thus, even in the event of the woman of John chapter 8 having truly committed adultery, the judgment was constrained until the requirements were satisfied, and only then may judgment with justice proceed, or else all those who punished the woman condemned them selves as violators of the 6th Commandment as unauthorized and or unexcepted killers. And this of course would be no different today as it would have been in the days of Moses.

A

Glorious Church

not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing

but

that it should be holy and without blemish

Members of his Body, of his Flesh, and of his Bones

In the final consideration on this compilation primary focus in the Organic principle of

Gen_2:24-25 …a man… shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh….naked…and not ashamed.

To this cleaving, unification and shameless principle the Christian marriage is weighed and judged. It is the male as Head of his God given family to protect his special marriage union at all costs, even as the apostle tells us:

Eph_5:22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.

Eph 5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the savior of the body.

Eph 5:24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

Eph 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

Eph 5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,

Eph 5:27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

Eph 5:28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.

Eph 5:29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:

Eph 5:30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

Eph 5:31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.

Eph 5:32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.

Eph 5:33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.

Thou shalt Not Kill

Exodus 20:13 / Deuteronomy 5:17

Among the simplest laws seemingly to understand is this 6th Commandment of the Common Law of God and of the most essential tenants of the Common-Wealth of Israel, is the simplicity of “Thou shalt Not Kill”.

Translations from the LXX Septuagint have it written “You shall not murder.”

The Idea of Killing an innocent person either of ones own nation or of another nation or people during a time of peace is among the most primary laws which govern society, yet it as all other Commandments ordained by Almighty God is integral in the fabric of the table of the whole of the 10 commandments. It is by this law all capitol offenses are weighed, those offenses towards God and neighbor which demand the blood of the offender is the highest price a sinner may pay in society, thus it is the chief, head or Capitol of the punishments of He That Is God: YHWH. It is by this Exception to this law had in Judgment against sin, that all rights become forfeited to one’s life as to allow the ordained Government to enact what is called the capitol punishment, and this when willful disregard summarized as wickedness is committed in place of the prior 5 commandments, this very 6th Commandment as well as those to be discussed hereafter this compilation.

The scripture below is here inserted into this compilation, at the forefront, as it is an adjoinment of this 6th Commandment to be discussed of prohibition of the taking of Innocent Life with the prior compilation on the 5th Commandment of the Common Law of God of Honoring thy Father and thy Mother , that thy days may be prolonged in the Land YHWH has given thee , showing the positive creative power to be exerted in the Common-Wealth of Israel to protect the Land of the children of thy people (Thy Brother) from the guilt of innocent blood :

Deu_19:1 When the LORD thy God hath cut off the nations, whose land the LORD thy God giveth thee, and thou succeedest them, and dwellest in their cities, and in their houses;

Deu 19:2 Thou shalt separate three cities for thee in the midst of thy land, which the LORD thy God giveth thee to possess it.

Deu 19:3 Thou shalt prepare thee a way, and divide the coasts of thy land, which the LORD thy God giveth thee to inherit, into three parts, that every slayer may flee thither.

Deu 19:4 And this is the case of the slayer, which shall flee thither, that he may live: Whoso killeth his neighbour ignorantly, whom he hated not in time past;

Deu 19:5 As when a man goeth into the wood with his neighbour to hew wood, and his hand fetcheth a stroke with the axe to cut down the tree, and the head slippeth from the helve, and lighteth upon his neighbour, that he die; he shall flee unto one of those cities, and live:

Deu 19:6 Lest the avenger of the blood pursue the slayer, while his heart is hot, and overtake him, because the way is long, and slay him; whereas he was not worthy of death, inasmuch as he hated him not in time past.

Deu 19:7 Wherefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt separate three cities for thee.

Deu 19:8 And if the LORD thy God enlarge thy coast, as he hath sworn unto thy fathers, and give thee all the land which he promised to give unto thy fathers;

Deu 19:9 If thou shalt keep all these commandments to do them, which I command thee this day, to love the LORD thy God, and to walk ever in his ways; then shalt thou add three cities more for thee, beside these three:

Deu 19:10 That innocent blood be not shed in thy land, which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance, and so blood be upon thee.

Deu 19:11 But if any man hate his neighbour, and lie in wait for him, and rise up against him, and smite him mortally that he die, and fleeth into one of these cities:

Deu 19:12 Then the elders of his city shall send and fetch him thence, and deliver him into the hand of the avenger of blood, that he may die.

Deu 19:13 Thine eye shall not pity him, but thou shalt put away the guilt of innocent blood from Israel, that it may go well with thee.

Deu 19:14 Thou shalt not remove thy neighbour’s landmark, which they of old time have set in thine inheritance, which thou shalt inherit in the land that the LORD thy God giveth thee to possess it.

A struggle between

the Flesh and the Spirit

Before venturing into this compilation notice the power of creation and judgment which is to be exerted into a Biblically Realistic society of Theonomic exactness. With in this statute to be executed, at it’s very heart of the creation and maintenance is the Land’s Road-Way system, that is the lands very rights of way; as we may understand it today’s terms: Some of our State highways, County and Township roads as well as City streets are implace due to the principles of the 6th Commandment as it’s Organic foundation, this is why this section of Deuteronomy 19:14 as well forbids the removal of ancient landmark, as the road way will, as it is today flow naturally between the boarders of family owned property. This is civilization as YHWH God dictated it, an exercise of the Spiritual Image and likeness by those who have his law upon their heart by natural progeniture

Facts of

Observable Nature

Yet in the case of observable Nature the living creatures seemingly need no permission or license beyond it’s own Hunger, Territory and sometimes Entertainment to kill and take life; thus by Nature we see that life operates with out law to govern the taking thereof in a selfish state according to it’s flesh, the creature prefers it’s own wants and needs before the basic breath of it’s victim, yet even this is made by the Creators design as the self evident facts bear witness; by nature the sons of Adam would in fact govern no differently with out the Law of God as the scripture relays in:

Gen_6:3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with ADaM, for that he also is flesh.

And in Gen_6:11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.

The

Christian Perspective

of the

Apostle Paul

The struggle between flesh and Spirit is here made evident to the war with in the living souls of ADaM: on the one hand we are spiritual, our inward man is capable of resembling the image and likeness of the Father YHWH God it’s Creator’s righteousness, and on the other hand ADaM is bound in flesh like all other living creatures and has the same selfish motivations to satiate his wands and needs; yet the reconciliation able to be harmonized in the creation of ADaM even in his fallen state is that it is this unique ability of having the duel nature of God flesh and Spirit that allows for Dominion or Governance, yet Governance with Righteousness is only achievable when the works and fruits of the flesh are crucified and redemption of the flesh body is the judicious goal of Adam’s children in the active fight against the fruits of the flesh: Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like…which I tell you …they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. (Gal_5:19-21)

In this make up designed by YHWH Creator of the souls of ADaM Spiritual Judgment is capable of coming to Fruit in our flesh: Gal_5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

(See Romans 6,7,8)

It is by this Spirit, the image and likeness of God which ADaM is reflective of, that allows him to create and Govern according to justice and and Judgment of God for his people and to aid as a light to the world in his resurrected state after the image of the Son of God, that is a a Christian. All forms of creative power given to ADaM in the making of society, be it building structures for protection, worship, help, aid education all are manifestations of the Governance ability of the spirit, a Spirit mixed with it’s fleshly desire to satiate it’s wants and needs, may in this resurrected state after the inward man focus this desire upon the things of God, the fruits of the Spirit, in other words ADaM is called to prefer the wants and needs of God the Father before his own and every one else, as the living creature of flesh is desirous and in preferance to it’s own wants and needs in preference to the life of it’s victim, so is the Spirit in preference to the wants and needs of the Spirit over the life and breath of the works and workers of the flesh:

Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. Rom_1:29-32 – The Christian perspective of the Apostle Paul

It is by this standard the Organic nature of both murder and capitol punishment is divided according to nature and nature’s God.

Consider the primary example found in the first event of killing between the sons of Adam, Cain and Able found in Gen 4:8 And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.(Gen_4:1-16)

Here accourding to both the context of the account and of Heb_11:4, 1Jo_3:12-15 righteous Able’s blood is shed and his life taken by the wrath of his wicked angry brother, the first imparitive strike against the 2nd Proto Commandment discussed in the introduction of this compilation, which in fact strikes against the first protos commandment as well

Mar_12:30 love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength

Mar_12:31 And the second is like this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

 

In this first case of murder, we have as well an absolute stike against the blessed mandate of dominion found in Gen_1:26-28 and discussed in the prior commandment as the act of killing ones brother undermines every tenant of that mandate and validates the curse of death pronounced upon ADaM as people, that is when murder is commited by one brother upon another of the same linage it:

1st devalues the parents of the linage, thus it is a strike against the prior 5th Commandment

2nd as devaluation of the parents of the linage it is, particularly in the case of ADaM a devalueation of God the Father who made ADaM in his likeness and image .

3rd eliminates a representative of God the Father’s dominion/governance is stalled, precisely in the case of the murder of the righteous.

4th finally as a truism, reverses the fruitfulness and multiplicity of Adamic Life in the act of murder.

As it should be understood from this organic contradiction, due to the nature of ADaM’s creation in the likeness and image of YHWH God the Father, ADaM’s intended purpose was to be in righteousness, as we find in this elementary account of Cain’s murder of Righteous Abel.

While some of the stated contradictions of the Blessed mandate in the points above could be said to be the same by taking the life of the murderer as well, the element of righteousness which lacks from the life of a murderer nullifies the same standard being held in the case of a murderer, rather the opposite becomes the observable, that by allowing the wicked to live unpunished will only further spawn the curse, and rather than affect the Earth with the Righteous Image and likeness of God the Father intended to govern by blessing, the willful dominion of the curse will govern in it’s own selfish likeness thereby multipling and fruiting the Earth with death according to the flesh rather than righteousness according to the Spirit as found in:

Gen_6:5 And YHWH saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

Gen 6:6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

Gen 6:7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth…

And thus to maintain the balance of righteousness, the Judgment upon murder was firmly enacted to the sons of Adam by the repeating of the blessed mandate after the destruction of the earth and the transgression against it righteousness by murder:

Gen_9:1 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth…

Gen 9:5 And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of an ADaM; at the hand of every man’s brother will I require the life of an ADaM.

Gen 9:6 Whoso sheddeth an ADaM’s blood, by ADaM shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made He you the ADaM.

Gen 9:7 And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.

Gen 9:8 And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying,

Gen 9:9 And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you..

And thus we have the bedrock foundation of the organic law which prohibits murder by nothing short of the exact idea’s delivered and codified my Moses in the 5th Commandment Thou Shalt Not Kill.

Capitol Punishment in society is always divine

When killing is considered from a Governmental perspective in any society, the Creative Force, that is the Divine which are attributed to giving life is called immediately into focus. Plainly the philosophic type question begs the answer to “Who gives the right to any one to take another’s life?”. For with out the absolute protection of innocent life from anger and wrath as well as the needs and wants of others, a protection which comes from Divine Law as an exception to the law of the flesh with allows for our Blood at the will of the stronger; as well it is Divine Law which offers exception to Righteous Government to put away evil that the wicked begat no more wickedness. No other legitimate answer maybe given to the question is begged.

With out the license granted by the Creator of life to put away some life from living by killing that life, it may be presumed that no life may be taken. Indeed, the enactment of the death penalty is indeed a permission of licensure given to those who wields the right to avenge blood, yea it is a waiver of this 6th Commandment’s protection.

Justice and Righteousness

of

YHWH GOD’s LAW

It is then by this law of the 6th Commandment both prince and stranger answer for the shedding of innocent blood and other sin crimes which demand blood as it’s payment to put evil away from the nation, for when a ruler takes the blood of His innocent subjects as punishment or in abuse he is as liable as the roving foreigner who would take the life of one of the citizens of the nation he dwells among. Thus, we not only have with in this 6th Commandment the prohibition for murder among brothers and neighbors and strangers, but we also have the prohibition of Judges putting innocent men to death with out inquisition, search, asking diligently; truth, and certainty, that such abomination is wrought… Deu_13:14

As well:

Deu_17:4 And it be told thee, and thou hast heard of it, and enquired diligently, and, behold, it be true, and the thing certain, that such abomination is wrought in Israel:

Deu 17:5 Then shalt thou bring forth that man or that woman, which have committed that wicked thing, unto thy gates, even that man or that woman, and shalt stone them with stones, till they die.

 

As the further substantiation of the positive aspect of this governing precept of this operating judgment:

Deu_17:6 At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he that is worthy of death be put to death; but at the mouth of one witness he shall not be put to death.

Deu_19:15 One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established.

And further built upon this precept of Thorough investigation and evidence establishing facts, the falsification of witness is as well punishable, in this case of murder, the one falsifying a witness as well forfeits his own life…

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.

Deu 19:20 And those which remain shall hear, and fear, and shall henceforth commit no more any such evil among you.

Deu 19:21 And thine eye shall not pity; but life shall go for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.

The Law of the flesh is sin and death,

The Law of God forbids killing:

God Grants Righteous Government Licensure to kill Sin and Death

It is an important at this juncture in thought to reaffirm and consider:

That the 6th Commandment prohibits Killing, thus it is so that with out the precepts which grant exception to the God Ordained Government instituting His righteous Judgments upon evil, no provision to kill is granted. It is only according to the strict format imbued into the exception of taking away wicked and evil life from the Land by condemning the workers of the fruits of the flesh, and this for the sole purpose of maintaining the fruits of the Spirit in all goodness and righteousness and truth Eph_5:9, with in the Christian Common-Wealth of Israel.

By such a righteous standard all the People may truly say

Cursed be he that taketh reward to slay an innocent person. And of the people shall say Amen. Deu_27:25

And with the people let all the Judges and Rulers know: Keep thee far from a false matter; and the innocent and righteous slay thou not: for I will not justify the wicked. Exo_23:7

For The God of Israel, the Rock of Israel speaks to every Judge and ruler as he charged David saying,

He that ruleth over men must be just, ruling in the fear of God. (2Sa_23:3)

Those who execute such capitol punishments for the maintenance of the Common-Wealth must be such men who are above reproach, Judges and Officers of the Church Israel (Congregation of YHWH / Church of God) comprised of literal Elders or Old men of literal Families as shown in Exo_18:25-26, Deu_1:9-18, Num_1:1-54, Num_11:14-25, as now stated many times heretofore, that the perfect Law of God with it’s punishments be not blasphemed. As we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully;

1Ti_1:9 Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,

1Ti 1:10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;

1Ti 1:11 According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God…

The Law is part and parcel to the Gospel which our Apostle Paul teaches to Timothy and the Christian’s of that day.

Thus from King to Peasant Thou Shalt Not Kill reigns as an essential element of the balance found in the Christian Common-Wealth, God reigns supreme and the only Sovereign LORD by and through the Word of His Law.

A COMMON LAW FOR A COMMON-WEALTH

Honour thy father and thy mother:

that thy days may be long upon the land

which the LORD YHWH thy God giveth thee.

Exodus 20:12

Honour thy father and thy mother,

as the LORD YHWH thy God hath commanded thee;

that thy days may be prolonged,

and that it may go well with thee,

in the land which the LORD YHWH thy God giveth thee.

Deuteronomy 5:16

The word Honor should hereafter in this contemplation be understood for it’s Hebrew and Greek understanding of “heaviness”, that is “weightiness” Just as it pertains to precious metal, thus the Idea of Honor or Esteem is the Idea of literal value or worth. The Commandment is forwarding the Child of Israel to Value his Father and Mother as wealth.

The subject of the 5th Commandment is likened unto all the commandments focused upon thus far, it is a key sentiment to summarize the whole of the subject, thus by neglect of the Honor due parents and parentage the Law of God is as well devalued.

Just as the prior sentiment conveyed in the 4th Commandment regarding the Sabbath day beside the 6 days of work, the whole focus of the whole of the Common-wealth’s practice of Time keeping is observed, so in this way the 5th Commandment regarding the Honor of ones parents will bring into focus the Nation’s Origins, from one’s father and mother throughout the genealogical make up of one’s Ethnic or National people, even to one’s own Kindred Race derived from their first father and mother.

Patrio-tism

Father – ism

In our modern day this Commandment of Almighty God has lost it’s value; The evidence of that loss is seen in the countries or lands which our Nation once occupied, lands which our European ancestors once held by Right of Blood, Sweat, and Tears shed for it as proof of their God given claim. When considering the Right of land ownership by Ethnic descent from a Biblical Reality, it must be acknowledged that all lands settled by any people of any race or species of creature is taken and held by blood, sweat and tears, Nature does witness to this fact, and the biblical testimony to the Children of Israel is no different.

Even the founders of the united states of America spoke in a form of dualism to this point, dualism is said because all of the many references to the duty of the progeny of the children of the revolution stands as a warning and admonition no matter what side of the constitution one is on such as the words of Thomas Jefferson who made the truistic statement that ” The tree of liberty must be renewed time an again by the blood of patriots and tyrants…”; a patriot by exact definition of it’s Latin: patria, one’s father’s country, form pater which is father in Latin, this is Biblical Patriotism, Patriarchal Patriotism, the honor of one’s father and mother is the foundation of the National family unit with in a geographical border or boundary of Land or Lands, the family is lead by the God given headship of the Man who is the Father as seen in Gen_1:26-28, Gen_2:21-25, every law which shall be covered hereafter on Government order, Num_30:1-16. The paternal order is the God ordained order of Family Government, even in reference Parents we testifies to the pair which brings forth offspring, a word which is devalued by any definition beyond the natural fact it carries, that of the Patriarchal quality of the parentage of a family, tribe, Nation and Race of Biblical Origin.

Furthermore, when speaking of a Nation and Country the two are often times confused as one and the same, yet they refer to two adjoined but different aspects of the collective common-wealth, both aspects are channeled into the 5th Commandment: The Nation which is the aspect of common-origin and The Country is the aspect of a common home land. Thus when we speak of a country we speak of land mass and borders not the nation of a common origin. The 5th Commandment covers both in it’s primary sentiment of the Nation from ones individual parents to ones parentage, and also the giving of blessings of Honor towards ones parentage as the prolonged dwelling in the land given to that Nation.

Yet the reward of honoring and fearing ones father and mother is called Inheritance, in the Hebrew the word is Y’RaSH and M’URaSH as far as the idea of possession of inherited traits, which is more or less the idea of Rights, legal Rights inherited from father to son as citizens, members of the common-wealth.

Consider:

Deu 33:4 Moses commanded us a law, even the inheritance of the congregation of Jacob.

While the Land inheritance is generally represented by the word NHeLEh.

Num_33:53 And ye shall dispossess the inhabitants of the land, and dwell therein: for I have given you the land to possess it.

Num 33:54 And ye shall divide the land by lot for an inheritance among your families: and to the more ye shall give the more inheritance, and to the fewer ye shall give the less inheritance: every man’s inheritance shall be in the place where his lot falleth; according to the tribes of your fathers ye shall inherit.

Num 33:55 But if ye will not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you; then it shall come to pass, that those which ye let remain of them shall be pricks in your eyes, and thorns in your sides, and shall vex you in the land wherein ye dwell.

Thus, Both Land inheritance and Covenantal Inheritance are inherent in the Paternal Honor .

By ignorant or willful disregard of this Commandment both the Nation and the Land will be lost, the two are invariably linked to the unity of every individual family doing so together as to form a Common-wealth.

With all this in mind consider the Greek LXX of Leviticus 19:3, “Let each one his father and his mother fear” the word fear is translated from a word rooted ina commonly understood word in our English speech, Phobia; in our insane and unGodly age in which we live the doctors of the so called psyche would call this a parentaphobia, the idea of being afraid of ones parents, yet this very heart and mind set should be a soul disposition of fear towards ones parents as a Godly fear. Every child of Godly parents should be afraid of the displeasure his parents will have in them, and thus be a feared that they them selves will dishonor their parents before the face of God almighty. A fear which I wish to punctuate by the end of this compilation.

Infractions upon the Honor

of the 5th Commandment

The first infraction: Physical Abuse

Exo_21:15 And he that smiteth his father, or his mother, shall be surely put to death.

This law prohibiting without exception the physical harm done to ones parents, as a capitol offence, a law which is not meant to be symbolic, and due to it’s simplistic nature it encompassed all forms of physical abuse done to ones parentage: grandparents, elders and those of the physical family in authority by mear age:

Lev_19:32 Thou shalt rise up before the hoary head, and honor the face of the old man, and fear thy God: I am the LORD.

This portion of Common Law helps us ascertain the scope of Honor as reaching further than one first father or mother, but unto his grandparents and beyond. It establishes also the Honor that should be had for any gray haired old man as a honorable member of a biblical patriarchal society, when indeed he is such, as one who should never be abused. The Idea of rising up is that which is accredited to kings and rulers, one we are still un-accustomed to understand in the West but perhaps not practice, the rising also carries with it the implication of support or establish, that is help an old man, and also establish the ruling elder as well, it is the onus of the young men to be the strong arm of the wise old man and to keep him in power, for all the young become old.

The next infraction

Exo 21:17 And he that curseth his father, or his mother, shall surely be put to death.

Before losing the thoughts of the Law and it’s greater focus just mentioned in the last infraction on Lev_19:32, consider not only one’s first Father and Mother but that of family rulers of Elders which helps support the God given authority by squarely seating it upon the 5th Commandment:

As mentioned prior in part 1 of this series on the 1st and 2nd commandment, the judges of Israel and of the Church / Ekklasia are to be comprised of literal Elders or Old men of literal Families as shown in Exo_18:25-26 Exo_18:25-26, Deu_1:9-18, Num_1:1-54, Num_11:14-25.

Exo_22:28 Thou shalt not revile the gods, nor curse the ruler of thy people., is by the law of Exo_21:17, we may see the correlation to this law as being integral one to the other. As mentioned concerning the 1st and 2nd Commandment of God’s Common Law: the word “god” in this text references YHWH GOD given authority to the Elder judges and rulers of THY PEOPLE, by rule of God’s Law. It should not be missed that in the KJV the word translated ‘revile’ of Exo_22:28 and ‘curse’ of Exo_21:17 are the same Hebrew,, both are ‘QuLL’ a word which signifies the opposite of the honor or value of the Commandment, as well this stands true in the Greek LXX text pertaining to the word Curse from Kako-Logon – G2551 ̄

From a compound of:

G2556 -Kako: bad, evil, wicked

and

G3056– Logos: words

literally “speak evil of”

.

The value or Honor intrinsically placed by Nature and natures God, YHWH upon the family order are preserved by these Common Laws which has as it’s preservation the the security of dwelling in the Land of inhabitants by the Blessing inherent to law’s defined particular precepts, statutes, as well as Judgments against this sin.

The support of the families leaning one upon the other will create a Nation, a standing Nation will create a protected Country border, a Land blessed by the prolonged days of the inhabitants who dwell upon it in family order keeping a common Calendar:

Ye shall be holy:

for I YHWH your God am holy.

Ye shall fear every man his mother, and his father,

and keep my sabbaths:

I am YHWH your God.

Lev_19:2-3

The calendar Sabbath of the LORD God of the Commonwealth, ordains and offers times of commanded family worship: Weekly, Monthly, Tri-yearly, and yearly worship times on which the Parents of Godly homes are listened to according the holy scriptures, the children are instructed by their elder fathers and mothers to establish this law in a symbiotic maintenance: the sabbath and all commanded festivals of scripture are family, kindred tribal maintenance tools; beyond it contains the Ordained time of National, Tribal and Family appointment of Elders to the position of judges and officers among the people, thus linking the Calendric system devised by Almighty YHWH as the time established for the commonwealth’s electoral conventions:

Deu_16:16-20 Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the LORD thy God … in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: …Judges and officers shalt thou make thee in all thy gates, which the LORD thy God giveth thee, throughout thy tribes: and they shall judge the people with just judgment.

That which is altogether just shalt thou follow, that thou mayest live, and inherit the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

The Christ and the 5th Commandment

The most simple sin specified in the scripture concerning the 5th Commandment our Lord Christ forwards as a rebuke to the ruling Officers called Scribes in His day. As in the modern day these men in civic authority thought God’s Law was not Spiritually important enough to keep the letter of the law, thus they imposed by symantical interpretation another understanding of the Commandment’s and it’s precepts, a situation concerning the 5th Commandment which undoubtedly caused the eventual removal of the remnant of Judah from Judea.

Consider:

Mat_15:4 For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.

Mat 15:5 But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; And honour not his father or his mother, Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.

Mat 15:7 Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,

Mat 15:8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.

Mat 15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. Exo_21:17;

Lev_20:9 …his blood shall be upon him.

The poetic semantics are not easily seen by the English reader: the Idea of the value of a monetary gift on Parents seemingly payed to the Temple treasury was in replacement for true value of Honor found in life actions and words towards one’s parents, thus this unlawful tradition which is a semantical approach to the literal commandment makes the Realistic Commandment which is Truly Spiritual given by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit of God void. It becomes void by cutting off the judgment from the commandment to replace it with a man made interpretation by the pseudo-letter. In this lesson Christ condemns the idea of replacing the actual Commandment of Law, to the end that is will void God’s Common Law; In modern terms, the governing State has assumed the right to redefine the value of parents to nothing more than a fine, a gift to blind the eyes and pervert the justice of God’s Law by use of the Temple’s State power over the judicial Elders, thus circularly destroying it’s self.

We in our modern societies of European descent find our selves in a worse position than even the Judean’s of the time of Christ, as the cursing of our progenitors has no back lash at all, not even a fine; yet the power base which has replaced the functional honor of the father and mother may easily be comprehended when one finds the idol in society that is unable to be cursed, as simple way evaluate a sociological position.

What is Cursing one’s Father or Mother?

As serious as a sin crime as is mentioned above according the Common Law of God , a word must be given upon understanding the nature of this infraction.

The word Curse above is Kako-logos as describes above. Kako is the general word for ‘bad things’, yet the understanding of ‘Curse’ is in focus.

While the simple understanding of bad or evil speech about one’s parents is simple enough to understand, they are words that cause ones parent to be afflicted by their bad words, either to them or others if the word returns to their ears. As well the simplicity of the Paternal nature of the family must be encapsulated in this sentiment as they are words that a child may use to afflict ones Parents, thus reversing the role by some form of negative control to in-place the words of Isaiah’s curse:

Isa_3:4 And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them.

Isa 3:5 And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbour: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honourable.

Yet this Curse must be understood in a strict biblical standpoint which must not be reversed as to allow an ignorant, selfish or wicked parent to silence the child who speaks the gospel which will naturally oppose any sinner in cluding sinful parents.

We have ample Scripture to show that the confession of Christ in our life will create variance even with ones own parents and family, by recourse, the denial of the life of Christ in us to disuad the varance between the Christian and his natural family is in fact a denial of Christ:

Mat_10:35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

Mat 10:36 And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.

Mat 10:37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

Mat 10:38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.

Mat 10:39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.

Mat 10:40 He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.

Christ’s admonition is from Mic_7:6, which is in-turn is a admonition from the Law of Deu_13:6-10, this Christ based or anointed based life is seen in Gideon in Jdg_6:1-32, when the confession of Gideon’s anointing caused him to hew down his father’s baal grove and throw over baal’s alter to set an example, yet Gideon did not speak evil of his parentage, yet his actions and words could be skued by a wicked father to be a form of rebellion. As well a good example may be had in the life of Johnathan son of King Saul, as he was under his wicked father who was pursuing innocent David, Johnathan did not curse his father but did as David did entreat and hinder his godless actions to the benefit of righteousness.

The speech of cursing or speaking affliction on one’s parents is a sin crime which may not be committed no matter if the parents be actually wicked in their life’s actions, it ought not be done ever by one confessing YHWH’s name; no provisions or acceptance is granted for Cursing one’s parents even when one’s Father or Mother is wicked in the most vile way, rather we are to entreat or implore 1Ti_5:1 but never to speak evil words upon or to them, to afflict their person, yet it is important to remember that sin is always sin, and Christian’s are commanded to reprove such.

In our unfortunate day and age this seems to be hard on account of the treatment many children go through at the hand of ignorant, selfish, and ungodly parents, which often cause children to go astray. Yet consider, children in the time of the 40 years of wilderness wondering, when the parents sin caused the children to wander as a punishment was no different, even these Israelite’s forgot the sign of circumcision, the sign of Abraham’s Covenant, which was a selection among the son’s of Adam to give the dominion Mandate as stated in Gen_1:26-28.

Children Obey your parents…

From the Creation of Adam into the time of the patriarch’s then in the time of the Canaanite dispossession, as well seen in the Ethnic segregation of Ezra and Nehemiah’s, the ultimate goal of having Children is to give them an inheritance, in the case of the Covenants made with one’s Ethnic people or ones Racial mandate: to honor Father and Mother is a matter of genetic inheritance of Covenant and Land in a biblical society: among European Christians, this should be one and the same.

As seen in the Law of God through out: Adultery, fornication, and whoredom are ultimate devaluations or dishonor to ones parents and parentage, by allowance of an illegitimate offspring to grow in violation of the Law of God will destroy the Covenant upon which the Law is founded thereby dissolving the bond of all. It is worth consideration at this point that in the list of adulterous fornications of which the prior mentioned infraction of Lev_20:9 was mentioned among is ended by the antithetical statement in

Lev 20:21-22 they shall be childless. Ye shall therefore keep all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: that the land, whither I bring you to dwell therein, spue you not out.

All forms of adulteration are literally a curse and a strike against ones parentage, a dishonor that will cause the Land to spew us out as opposed to prolong our days.

As it pertains to wise, generationally minded, Godly parents the Apostle Paul admonishes the children of these Christian families by the words he spoke to the Ephesian church, who mind you, did not live in the land of Judea or within the borders of old Israel but within Ephesus, a city of Asia Minor where the diaspora of Israel had settled in their Gentile-pagan state as Ephesians, he had admonished them thus:

Eph_6:1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.

Eph 6:2 Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;)

Eph 6:3 That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.

Eph 6:4 And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Consider an other Genesis example is given of a specific mention of an Honor toward parents in this paraphrase of Gen_27:46 – Gen_28:1-9

Gen 27:46 And Rebekah said to Isaac, I am weary of my life (Eve) because of the daughters of Heth: if Jacob take a wife of the daughters of Heth, such as these which are of the daughters of the land, what good shall my life do me?

Gen 28:3 And God Almighty bless thee, and make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, that thou mayest be a multitude of people;

Gen 28:4 And give thee the blessing of Abraham, to thee, and to thy seed with thee; that thou mayest inherit the land wherein thou art a stranger, …Isaac had blessed Jacob, and sent him away to Padanaram, to take him a wife from thence; and that as he blessed him he gave him a charge, saying, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan;

Gen_28:7 And that Jacob obeyed his father and his mother, and was gone to Padanaram…

By continued reading the subject is substantiated in the actions of Esau who is called a fornicator for the strange wives he had taken against His parents honor in Heb_12:16, who by this action and other actions forfeit his birth-right, the inheritance from Adam to Isaac at that time, an inheritance which was to be the Christ’s.

Thus the act of not marrying into the forbidden linage of Canaan as per the dictates of YHWH God known by the Patriarchs, and seen in Israel’s laws trough out the Scripture was one of the first places where we may safely see the Obedience or Honor of one parents to the purpose of prolonged days upon the land in the sentiment of Ethnic purity, contained in the literal listening to ones parents on the matters of procreation, an action which of course replicates the Command it self.

The admonition in Gen 28:7 … Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan; And that Jacob obeyed his father and his mother… is one which is as elementary cursing or striking ones mother and father who raised them from womb to adulthood, yet this infraction curses and strikes the at the root of ones ancestry, and obliterates the covenant by the adulteration of distinct Ethnic and racial groups which nature and natures God has deemed to be separate since creations time. The people of Canaan were the people who were being destroyed and spewed out of the ‘land of Canaan’ to be inhabited by God’s Chosen people Israel, who’s divided home inheritance was Aram and Haran in what we call Syria, the the place of Abraham’s father’s people. Yet the scripture tells us that the Gen_15:16 the iniquity of the Amorites became full at the time of Israel’s dispossession of Canaan’s land, iniquity that we may plainly in the Laws of Lev_20:1

In Biblical times the ultimate disregard of ones parents and parentage was one who has disgraced his father’s name and inheritance beyond forgiveness as see in the above portions of Genesis. By evident context the same holds true in the following grim and terrible fate that was possible for a stubborn and rebellious child, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them:

The Perfect Law of God Continues:

Deu_21:19 Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place;

Deu 21:20 And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard.

Deu 21:21 And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear.

It was the last check in the balance of National order for Children to Obey their parents in the Lord: If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them: Deu_21:18

In the KJV text the word “glutton” may help to confuse the context in uniting it with the prior obedience of Jacob verses Esau the fornicator. In other translations prior to the KJV the Hebrew word ZaLL H2151 was translated rioter, yet in the LXX the type of glutny and riotousness is more described, the APB translations has it as: Our son, this one resists persuasion, and he aggravates, not obeying our voice; he is fond of carousing drunk with wine. sumboloaopon wich literally means “sum+bolo” to union by thrusting (G4862 + G906) the word συμβολη seen as well translated coupling in many translations of the LXX

“coupling” through out Exo in the building of the temple in reference to action which sum-boleh describes.

(More evidence in the following verses to by comparison of the Greek construct in the LXX of Exo_26:4; Exo_26:5; Exo_26:10; Exo_28:27; Exo_28:32; Exo_36:11; Exo_36:12; Exo_36:17; Exo_39:17; Exo_39:20; Deu_21:20; Pro_23:20; Isa_23:18; Hos_4:12😉

In showing this point of dis-honor and dis-obedience to ones parents I wish to end off with the voice of Solomon, a man who according to our Biblical testimony had indeed a struggle with this very grave sin, his testimony as well helps to describe in other words the Hebrew word ZaLL as see in the prior Law of God:

Pro_23:19 Hear thou, my son, and be wise, and guide thine heart in the way.

Pro 23:20 Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters (ZaLLH2151) of flesh:

Pro 23:21 For the drunkard and the glutton (ZaLLH2151) shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.

Pro 23:22 Hearken unto thy father that begat thee, and despise not thy mother when she is old.

Pro 23:23 Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.

Pro 23:24 The father of the righteous shall greatly rejoice: and he that begetteth a wise child shall have joy of him.

Pro 23:25 Thy father and thy mother shall be glad, and she that bare thee shall rejoice.

Pro 23:26 My son, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways.

Pro 23:27 For a whore is a deep ditch; and a strange woman is a narrow pit.

Pro 23:28 She also lieth in wait as for a prey, and increaseth the transgressors among men.

Lev_23:23 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

Lev 23:24 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation.

Many folks, including my self at one time, objected to the observation of the New Moon as part of the feastivals of YHWH, one of the chief objections that is found among those who object to a Heavenly sabbath using the lights of Heaven primarily the moon for the appointing of Sabbath’s as well as other feasts according to Lev 23 is that “If the new moon were a feastival that is regularly adjoined to the Last sabbath of every Month according to the lunar sabbath reckoning, why would God have need to direct the people to keep the Feast of Trumpets as a sabbath of Holy Convocation, especially when you say that is a regular part of every month lead by the New Moon?”

To this I offer the answer that is able to be ascertained by a surface and deep comprehension of the Law of YHWH, either by study of the KJV, the LXX, or the Hebrew Scriptures provide a holistic understanding of the treatment of every new moon as the head or beginning of the month, and the memorial to be had in the treatment of the 7th New Moon, called YoM ThRUOEh as the example for the New Moon of every month, yet with this New Moon special emphasis was to be had upon the sound of the calling of the assembly.

H2146

זכרון / ZiKRUN

 

From H2142; a memento (or memorable thing, day or writing): – memorial, record.

H8643

תּרוּעה / ThRUOEh

From H7321; clamor, that is, acclamation of joy or a battle cry; especially clangor of trumpets, as an alarum: – alarm, blow

The Idea found in this Feastival is not specified on the trumpet as our mind considers in the English version but rather upon the sound, the same word is used in Hebrew in 1Sa 4:5 And when the ark of the covenant of the LORD came into the camp, all Israel shouted RUO with a great shout / ThRUOEh, so that the earth rang again.

Hear we see the word used in it’s correct verbal sense.

Thus when we understand the feast of the blowing of the trumpet I like to refer to it as the feast of trumps, as the focus is upon the sound made not upon the noun or object which makes the sound, nevertheless, a trumpet does, as the word indicated make a trump…We can trump with a trumpet, but we may also trump with our mouths if needs be, trumpets should be a time of praise, a time of shouting, to YHWH indeed.

Yet due to our holistic understanding of the Calendar of YHWH we must consider the context of the Law as it pertains to what surrounds this celibration as a memorial.

The word ZKRUN can be easily seen in this scripture:

Exo 17:14 And the LORD said unto Moses, Write this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven…Because the LORD will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.

Here we see the substance and the purpose of the memorial, in this case it is a book or record made in the Law for Israel to remember this fact of genealogical war, as a warning and as a reminder.

The Idea of the Memorial on the feast of trumps is much to the same point: Let us go to

Num 10:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

Num_10:2 Make thee two trumpets HeZREh) of silver; of a whole piece shalt thou make them: that thou mayest use them for the calling of the assembly, and for the journeying of the camps.

Num 10:3 And when they shall blow (ThaQO) with them, all the assembly shall assemble themselves to thee at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

Num 10:4 And if they blow but with once, then the princes, which are heads of the thousands of Israel, shall gather themselves unto thee.

Num 10:5 When ye blow an alarm (ThRUOEh) , then the camps that lie on the east parts shall go forward.

Num 10:6 When ye blow an alarm (ThRUOEh) the second time, then the camps that lie on the south side shall take their journey: they shall blow an alarm for their journeys.

Num_10:7 But when the congregation is to be gathered together, ye shall blow, but ye shall not sound an alarm (ThRYO) תריע.

Num 10:8 And the sons of Aaron, the priests, shall blow with the trumpets; and they shall be to you for an ordinance for ever throughout your generations.

Num 10:9 And if ye go to war in your land against the enemy that oppresseth you, then ye shall blow an alarm with the trumpets; and ye shall be remembered (ZiKaR) before the LORD your God, and ye shall be saved from your enemies.

Num_10:10 Also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn days, and in the beginnings of your months, ye shall blow (ThaQOThiM-Plural blows) with the trumpets (HeZaR) over your burnt offerings, and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings; that they may be to you for a memorial (ZiKRUN) before your God: I am the LORD your God.

LXX- Num 10:10 And in the days of your gladness, and in your feasts, and in your new moons, ye shall sound with the trumpets

Psa_81:3 Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed, on our solemn feast day.

Psa 81:4 For this was a statute for Israel, and a law of the God of Jacob.

By context the Trump or alarm made by the Trumpet usures Israel to Gather together either to war or to worship every event however is to gather the assembly.

Exo 32:17 And when Joshua heard the noise of the people as they shouted, he said unto Moses, There is a noise of war in the camp.

Exo 32:18 And he said, It is not the voice of them that shout for mastery, neither is it the voice of them that cry for being overcome: but the noise of them that sing do I hear.

As many of us know, the assembly and worship of YHWH often times

Is Spiritual warefar against the darkness and evil of this world, in our lives, families, homes and Nation. I am sure to believe that this commonality of the Trump of assembly is meant to be understood by Christians, and understanding to often forgotten about in our present evil day:

1Co 14:7 And even things without life giving sound, whether pipe or harp, except they give a distinction in the sounds, how shall it be known what is piped or harped?

1Co 14:8 For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle?

The comming of Christ in to our life is no different to some they hear gladness and to others the sound of war: Just as Moses and Joshua after recieving the law both heard the same sound and distinguished it differently:

1Th_5:2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

1Th 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

1Th 5:4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.

1Th 5:5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

1Th 5:6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.

1Th 5:7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.

1Th 5:8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

1Th 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

1Th 5:10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.

Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

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:

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.

Exodus 20:8-11

Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee

And remember that thou wast a servant in the land of Egypt,

and that the LORD thy God brought thee out thence through a mighty hand

and by a stretched out arm:

Therefore the LORD thy God commanded thee to keep the sabbath day.

Deuteronomy 5:12-15

For those who may have never considered the idea of the Common Law for a Common wealth including a Common Sabbath, let me begin by saying Sabbath observation with out the Blood of Christ upon the alter of the temple of Heaven is empty, a New moon or feast day is empty with out the soul cleansing blood of the Lamb of God who gave himself for us to be a spotless church, so that at this time we as a people, as his people might have a sacrifice worthy for every day the Lord YHWH has given us, that in accordance with tenants of the New Covenant this 4th Commandment might as well be truly written on our heart, mind and soul according to the life of Jesu(s) Christ. BY GRACE WE ARE SAVED!

The 4th Commandment should never be forgotten by the ReNEWed Man, sanctified by the people of God, the people who are called by His name according to the prior Commandment of the 10, the people who have abandoned the Idols of their hearts or the laws of strange god’s beside the LORD YHWH according to the 2nd and 1st Commandment of the 10 as well. The very spirit of every Commandment spoken of thus far in this Compilation series on the Common Law of God resides in this Commandment, and this commandment resides in them, that the words of James may echo clearly in our ears and hearts

Jas_2:10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.

As a reminder, the Law of God and in this case the Sabbath of the 4th Commandment is among the most reasonable service of Rom_12:1 by which we as Christians who are members of the Church present our selves as Living sacrifices “Holy and acceptable” before God. The Sabbath is in line with the good works the apostle Paul spoke of in Eph_2:10 : For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them, these are they according to Deu_28:9-10 which again tells us that if we shall keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, and walk in his ways all people of the earth shall see that we are called by the name of the LORD.

It is biblically indisputable that the 4th Commandment establishing the Sabbath Day is a doctrine of specific worship and service appointed for the People who are called by the name of the God of the bible, and the act of making holy what he has deemed, sanctifying what he has sanctified is to walk in his ways.

While so called spiritual Christianity still, for the time being that is, meets on a collective day, the spirit of the 4th commandment has been stripped away from the once held reason why they met on that collective day; a situational context that may help describe the understanding which has been spoken of prior of following the Letter or the Spirit of any Law: in the case of the old rest day of Christendom, sunday, the command was only being observed by force, social construct, and tradition as the ‘Letter’ by a majority, this Letter eventually had no Spiritual impact due to it’s lack Spiritual make up, yet for those authorities that retained the law due to a true love for it’s effect upon healthy society, that is those who loved the law by the Spirit in it’s position as the 4th commandment, it was they who kept the Letter enforce. But once the authorities and minority concluded that the Letter of the Law was no longer Spiritual, and that the 4th commandment was abrogated in disregard to their grandfather’s doctrine, the Letter of that law was nothing more than the ink in a book called the “old testament”, the story of a Letter written in Stone.

This is due to a lack of desire by church goers to be called by God’s name as God proclaims Him self to be known, and a desire by the disobedient and gainsaying people to fashion a tolerant god that will abide in their heart according to their own laws, The having of another God before the God of the Bible, includes unfortunately the modern day Jesus,when he is the harbinger of self indulgence and self worship of the modern self destructing Church world, it is this guise of self which sits among those Idol’s that reside in the heart, an anti-Christ who many say is God, and who many who say they are Christian say “is in their heart”, it is by the residence of this anti-Christ Jesus, believed to be a law breaking son of the God of the bible, the God who wrote this very law of Sabbath into the table of stone with his own finger and numbered it 4th.

As Such the Jesus in the heart of the church world of today is the Idol in violation of the 1st and 2nd commandment being. As well this Jesus of Sabbath breaking is not the Jesus who came in the name of YHWH according to the scriptures, who was a keeper of the 3rd commandment, which shows the Deu_28:1-10 National Lord proclaimed as He who came in the name of YHWH according to Psa_118:26 as stated by

Joh_12:13 : Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.

Rather than another Jesus and son of God which opposes the Commandments of His father we Have a Lord and Christ which boldly and loudly Proclaims “The Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath”. (Mar_2:28, Luk_6:5, Luk_13:15), a claim substanciated by the fact attested to by the testamony of Luk_4:16 … his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read.

The 4th Commandment was the Custom of the Christ! It is the Custom of the Christ-ian! Regardless of what the happy go lucky televangelist, radio preacher or the local pastor tells us, the Sabbath is a biblical fact and way mark of the Godly Christian life.

Some history to think about

The 4 commandment may be one of the most knowledgeably fought against Commandments by the world at large with only a rival of the 7th on adultery, a connection to be noticed. The idea of taking time which God has given us and keep it holy and sanctify it by rest and worship towards Him is particularly fought against by those who espouse themselves as followers of Christ. It is those who call themselves Christians that have done the most damage to this Commandment since the time of the roman church under Victor who condemned the more biblically lawful observance of Polycrates disciple of John, unto the time of Constantine in the 3rd century who enforced the Julian calendar (created by Julius Caesar) with the mated notation of the bishop of Rome by the guise of the treaty of Milan, which brought the non-Julian observers to surface under the guise of tolerance to the end that Rome might quash the opposition of the sunday church according to the Roman dictate; in more recent history after the establishment of the Julian week was excepted by most European Christians Reformationists and Puritians sought to apply God’s Law to ever level of Society, for the level of the 4th Commandment they sought to see sunday regarded as not only church day but as the sabbath of Christendom, to this the so called evangelical church even now opposes under the doctrine of anti-nomianism teaching for doctrine the abrogation of the 4th Commandment, that is mind you: the idea that the Christ of church fathers such as Polycrates, and the disciples of Luk 23:56 who’ rested the sabbath day according to the commandment.’ before attending to the body of the crucified Christ, as well the Christ of our so called protestant Reformers and Puritian fathers of faith who desired the regard of sunday as sabbath.

Thus, a once wise and understanding people, a people called by the name of Christ and of Christ’s God the Father have fallen to moral ignorance and blindness once again yet this time with the name of Christ on their lips and a copy of the book which can correct the fall, the damage has spread like a flood across the world to wash away the Law of God in it’s practical and most rudimentary application, by once again detaching Christ the King from the Kingdom Law, a law which He has been given by the inheritance of His Father YHWH, He Who Is God, the Ruler of Heaven and Earth, the God of Israel who penned every jot an titel upon the heart of the man Jesu(s) Christ.

 

The Israel of God

A Church which keeps Sabbath

Regardless of at this point of what day you personally believe is the 7th day of the 4th Commandment is according to the weekly calendation; a subject intended to be gotten into by the end of this message.

Consider how important this 4th Commandment is to YHWH GOD, and as a recipient of the New Covenant: a Citizen of the commonwealth and Nation of Israel how important should it be to you and how important should it be to your Nation?

Exo_31:13 Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you.

Exo 31:14 Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people.

The subject of the relavant importance of this Commandment to GOD should never be brought to question, the Commandment is so Important to the LORD Judge, that under His ordained order, under His Common Law, has determined the wilful violation thereof was worthy of Death in this life.

.Exo 31:16 Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.

Exo 31:17 It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever

There is no case for those who wish to be the people of God and their children as the children of God, who willfully forget the Sabbath and it’s holiness, it’s sanctity, and it’s keeping, rather those who kick against the Sabbath by this scripture are Rejected as the people of God and can not be the Spirtual Israel spoken of in Rom_9:6-8…For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel… thus they are not the Israel of God, The LORD only accounts an Ethnic Israelite a true Israelite as He desired them when they desire His ways and His name to be upon their life, a people who desire to walk after the Spirit in the letter of the Law as best they can.

Yet again I must say for those who hear this message wrong: It is by pure Grace that we have within our grasp the LORD’s willingness to forgive, that the statement may always ring true “By Grace ye are saved” a Grace that is nevertheless through Faith, which work together as the gift of God, No not of our own works, nor of how well we keep any Commandment for we are sinners before the face of a holy God, thus it is the Grace of God which is extended constantly to a rebellious and gainsaying people prone to selfish desire and self worship, that when the fullness of time may come in our lindividual life and in the life our Nation God may send the redemption of His the King into our life to use as our battle cry against sin : BY GRACE WE ARE SAVED!

Consider the message YHWH gave Ezekiel for the rebellious house of Israel:

Eze 20:16 Because they despised my judgments, and walked not in my statutes, but polluted my sabbaths: for their heart went after their idols.

Eze 20:17 Nevertheless mine eye spared them from destroying them, neither did I make an end of them in the wilderness.

Eze 20:18 But I said unto their children in the wilderness, Walk ye not in the statutes of your fathers, neither observe their judgments, nor defile yourselves with their idols:

Eze 20:19 I am the LORD your God; walk in my statutes, and keep my judgments, and do them;

Eze 20:20 And hallow my sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between me and you, that ye may know that I am the LORD your God.

The Sabbath Day is among the most pressing proofs of the service and worship of the God of the Bible, and the willful or ignorant disregard is among the most proving evidence of ones service or involvement in another system of law or morality. Willful is continuously said due to our great shame as Nation, that is a Genetic people who even if ignorant to the vastness of the Manners and Common Customs of the bible we have decidedly neglected the Creation account with it’s Exclamation point, THE SABBATH DAY!

Ignorant is continuously said, because many now do not even think about the 4th Commandment in it’s simplest sence, let alone examine the scripture for an understanding of it’s importance, this started by past generation’s willful neglect thereof.

The point made in absolutely every account of Sabbath’s observation found in the scripture, is the Testimony of YHWH’s 6 days of work followed by the Sabbath day of Rest and the Command, not the recommendation, of His people to do the same, people that are to be like Him and in His Image, a people that are to be holy as He is Holy. A Command made for man as a liberty of Rest and relaxation intended as part of the holy worship of YHWH the creator and sustainer.

Thus, the Children of Israel are Commanded to make subject all thing in their power by the letter to engender the Spirit:

thou, thy son, thy daughter, thy manservant, thy maidservant, thy cattle, thy stranger that is within thy gates:

For in Six Days the LORD YHWH Made Heaven and Earth,

and

On the Seventh Day He Sabbathed, and was Refreshed.

The simplicity of a Common day of worship and Rest in the Name of God the creator is a unifying aspect of the Biblical Church and people. When the sabbath is used lawfully the Commonwealth is unified even by the act of desistance of all labor and business. Consider the blue laws so called, that enforced the desistance of sunday business:

By this family was encouraged, the churches were encouraged, American and European work ethic was supported, the benefit of a Common day of worship was an observably positive part of society, and regardless of my convictions against the keeping of sunday, it must be admitted as a good thing for European people to remember the God of the Biblical creation story, as well the keeping of sunday as a Nation had it’s benefits of the papal tradition placed upon the day known as sunday that is that it was the day of the Resurrection of Christ, and by that tie of events of biblical creation and christ’s Resurrection it was assumed by the non-christian peoples that America, United Kingdom, Europe and South Africa and so on were Christian Nations: Just in the topical keeping of sunday this assumption was made by the citizen and the stranger, due to it’s law upon a society and it’s reverence by the society; a reverence which made the antithesis such as the Speakeasy: a place to go in secret to do business on sunday, eat or get a drink, it was the social tolerance of such that began the repeal of the blue laws. To make the matters worse the churches, particularly evangelicals heaped up the anti-nomian doctrine teaching that the law and commandments had been done away, lead by anti-christian portions of society such as businessmen, jews, atheists and communists all lobbying to repeal the blue laws, to change western culture toward self gratification The repeal in some states happened like this: first the businesses of necessity must be aloud to open, restaurants and grocery stores People need food! department and clothing stores people need clothes! as well as a nice out fit for church, ehh? Soon everything fell under the guise of necessity and who ran the stores and restaurants? The original non-sabbatarians, the non-church goers of course, but eventually the church goers concluding from the fat preachers sermon one sunday teaching that it couldn’t possibly be a sin to do a little shopping on grandpa and grandma’s day of rest: so began to use the stores by the populous, sales went up and no further proof was needed for the necessity, so much that church goers eventually couldn’t ‘afford’ to not work on some sunday’s, bt as long as the offering plate was filled on sunday night or wednesday night the fat preachers didn’t mind work rather than church, besides “it’s a christian liberty”.

A bland version of the death of sunday in America, by JS Lowther

The sunday churchers of America would have done well to observe the words of the prophet Amos:

Amo_8:4 Hear this, O ye that swallow up the needy, even to make the poor of the land to fail,

Amo 8:5 Saying, When will the new moon be gone, that we may sell corn? and the sabbath, that we may set forth wheat, making the ephah (measure) small, and the shekel (money) great, and falsifying the balances by deceit?

Amo 8:6 That we may buy the poor for silver, and the needy for a pair of shoes; yea, and sell the refuse of the wheat?

Amo 8:7 The LORD hath sworn by the excellency of Jacob, Surely I will never forget any of their works.

Amo 8:8 Shall not the land tremble for this, and every one mourn that dwelleth therein?

I hope the mention of Amos’s rebuke for those who desire to do business on the sabbaths and new moons is thought provoking to the prior point, in context it may be read that Amos is describing the abandonment of the new moons and Sabbath’s of the Heavens started by the businessmen who supported the religious system of Samaria, Dan and Beersheba, a system that 1Ki_12:33 tells was started by a calendar change devised by a King’s heart.

One of the reasons the days which our European people used in times past, under Papal and pagan persuasion, have been unable to establish a consistent sabbath day of worship is because of the judeo christian duplicity found on the subject and more damningly the non-intrinsic and thus sign-less basis of the days so named Saturnday and Sunday as well as the whole weekly system. Consider how Commonly in our society saturns day is considered the 7th day of the calendar week of the Gregorian calendar system established by Pope Greg the 8th upon the Julian model which originally used weeks of 7 and 8 days, yet sunday as has been described has overwhelmingly been the day devoted to Sabbath like worship, yet it is regarded as the 1st day of the calendar week. This ability to change the day of worship from the Grego 7th day saturns day to the 1st day sunday is claimed openly to be so by the Papal church authority. Yet in truth this authority is not due to the fact that God has given such power to men, but that the whole calendar system is undeniably derived from it’s Creator MEN: Julius Caesar and Pope Greg the 8th and Not YHWH God, this is easily witnessed by the lack of witness about which day is the Sabbath…there is no sign associated at all with either day.

The 4th creation day ordaining the lights of Heaven must in Reality be closely connected to the 7th day of Rest, the Sabbath of the 4th commandment, easy enough to remember. As a Common Law of a Genetic and National People our Law’s must not be abstract like the grego calendar we live under today, rather it must be organic, that is intrinsic to nature as a fact to the nature of the law of YHWH God: it can never be abolished or changed; thus a Truly Heavenly calendar can not be altered, only ignored or forcibly dissuaded by masters of men.

In the Catholic roman construct of their churches feasts, Sunday takes the precedence, when one studies the history of Easter, X-mas, Lent and sunday Pentecost according to the papal tradition sunday is always the focus point seen clearly in the accepted determination of Anatolius of Alexandria who lived around the year A.D. 230-280, a great mathmatition and man of science who used his God given knowledge to contradict the lunar sabbath of Passover being observed by Christians of Europe and Asia, for the aim of substantiating the keeping of sunday, to replace passover and to establish Easter.

The Julian calendar reformation of Pope Gregory the 8th of the 15 hundreds, when the Julian calendar had noticeably slipped past nature to the eventual detriment of society, the church of Rome had need to wait and issue the adjustment of the calendar only once it had slipped to a time in alignment with the weekly cycle,14 days; As not to disturb the weekly cycle established by the prior Constantinian-Julian system used by the majority faithful, yet folks like George Washington who was born on the day we now use for leap year lost there b-day when the change was issued nearly 200 years after Pope Greg’s decree.

The Calendar of the God of the Bible which we will not begin to discuss is however Organic and Natural, based on observable and infallible proofs able to be witnessed by any one upon the earth in his own voice and language. The only objection which distorts this voice and language is the voice of a man, like a Pope, Emperor or Congress who can only condemn and punish those who will not obey the man made order:

Since the time of Pharaoh king of Egypt who refused to let Israel celibate the feast of YHWH unto Polycrates bishop of Ephesus condemned for celebrating the lunar sabbath of Passover and unleavened bread the words of Daniel persist:

Dan_7:25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws…

 

While men and rulers of men may seek to change the times and laws of God, it is not in their power, rather the opposite it fact:

Blessed be the NAME of God for ever and ever:

for wisdom and might are his:

And he changeth the times and the seasons:

he removeth kings, and setteth up kings:

he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:

Dan_2:20-21

A Heavenly and Agricultural alternative to the Pagan Julian Gregorian Calendar

for

True Christian Reconstruction

Biblically Speaking

the 4th Commandment not only governs the rest day in the Commonwealth, but the whole calendar system of the Commonwealth.

YHWH’s order is a Heavenly order an order man can not alter, while man may ignore it, it is ever there as a reminder to the people of Israel in connection with the signs of Genesis creation and the Sign of Exodus 31’s sabbath as a reminder of God’s Grace wither Israel knows it or not, YHWH is faithful:

Jer 31:35 Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts is his name:

Jer 31:36 If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever.

The Heavenly Sabbath is a constant reminder of the Commonwealth of Israel, this Ethnic Nation of Israel is preserved by the King of the Kingdom of Heaven a Kingdom of God:

As most know, who listen to this ministries material know that we follow a Heavenly Calendar comprised of the lights of heaven according to Gen_1:14-19, which lights consist of the Sun, Moon, and Stars; by the three lights mentioned YHWH declares their purpose to be for Signs, Seasons, Days and Years and for Light upon the earth; The 7th day we believe is the accurate Sabbath of God, specifically seen in Exo_31:13 as a ‘sign’ and in Lev_23:2-3 a ‘season or feast’ both translated from the same Hebrew word found in Gen_1:14 ‘moed’, thus this Sabbath day is based purely upon the Heavenly lights of God’s 1st day and 3rd day creation. This system is often called lunar Sabbath, due to the intended overlap of the signs which the moon makes at the end of every week in it’s quarterly phases a 7th day which is enumerated from the new moon every month and holding the new moon as a feast in it’s own right insuperably attached to the last Sabbath of every month and continued into the 1st day of every month reckoned by the renewal of the new moon synonymous words in the Hebrew HeDeS ( pronounced by some as cHoDeSH), therefore the moon in it’s circuit in the Heavens making it’s phase signals the yearly and monthly weeks of the whole Calendar system of the Kingdom of Heaven.

It is from this point forward that due to the overwhelming interconnection found in the scriptures, which naturally or heavenly connects the Day, to the Weeks of Sabbath, to the Months to the Years, and the year to the greatest measurement of time mentioned in scripture the Jubilee, which is an enumeration of every 7 years, which like the new moon in correspondence to the 7th day sabbath out lined above, such is the count of 7 years restarted every 50 years.

As well as the overwhelming interconnection of the Sabbath according to the lunar cycle prior outlined are the Months of the biblical feastly cycle which make up the Agricultural Year, that is that every Sabbath day of this lunar cycle which fall upon the 1’st, 8th, 22nd, and 29th day of every month according to the new moon, in line with every festival named in scripture which has Sabbath days mentioned in it’s observance. Once this is considered from a biblical reality, this sabbath can not be ignored by the ardent bible law observer, as it ties the whole of the scripture together in one lineal system as far as time keeping is concerned.

The Sabbath produced by this Heavenly calendar is the repercussion of 2 very simple rules:

1. The Witness of the lights of Heaven

and

2. The application of Biblical Law as the Written Witness upon those lights we see.

In other words, no other 7 day cycle is capable of being seen in the lights of heaven that matches to the words of God’s law. There is no sign in the heavens, that dictates a sunday, or a saturns day, or any day of that so called week, but in alternative there is a Natural cycle to the moon which offers signs in it’s phases as way markers to the 7th day and seasons of appointed time.

All calendar observation seats upon the foundation of YHWH’s Rest day called the Sabbath, as found in the 4th Commandment, and of the creation week a seen pattern found in the year, month, week and day of the cultural Nation of Israel in the observance of their National feasts:

The Year because at it’s Agricultural start able to be marked for the geographic specific observer by the placement of the sun and moon in the stars, the stars work as the back drop or face of this Heavenly clock, if we may. By matching the Agricultural laws which we find primarily in

Deu_16:1 Observe the month of Abib, and keep the Passover unto the LORD thy God: for in the month of Abib the LORD thy God brought thee forth out of Egypt by night. the Brenton Greek LXX tells us:

Observe the month of new corn, and thou shalt sacrifice the passover to the Lord thy God; because in the month of new corn thou camest out of Egypt by night.

This is an important fact as witnessed by the creation week, as we see the Genesis basis as

Gen 1:11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the herb of grass bearing seed according to its kind and according to its likeness, and the fruit-tree bearing fruit whose seed is in it, according to its kind on the earth, and it was so.

Gen 1:12 And the earth brought forth the herb of grass bearing seed according to its kind and according to its likeness, and the fruit tree bearing fruit whose seed is in it, according to its kind on the earth, and God saw that it was good.

Gen 1:13 And there was evening and there was morning, the third day.

As we see the 3rd day of genesis creation before the reckoning of YHWH’s lights as Signs, seasons, days and years upon the 4th day, undoubtedly the heavens were arraigned in the creation of the heavens at the very beginning in some way yet it was at the 4th day that the earth began due to the 3rd day vegetation creation to use the light upon earth.

The Yearly cycle of the Bible is an Agricultural cycle which is marked by those who use all 3 lights of Heaven by the star sign called by most the Zodiak, but called in Job_38:32 Mazzaroth.

Once the Agriculture of the Abib or New Corn of Barley is established the first new month of the new year is signaled by the sign we called the new Moon; the new moon is the only signal in the Heavens which works in conjunction with the sun and stars to form an observable month pattern usable for the common farmer and the astronomer. The term new moon and new month and beginning of the month are synonymous in the Bible.

From the moon and it’s quarterly phase of light witnesses as well to the creation of the earth and the creation week, the new moon is born in darkness upon the end of a prior age but increases in it’s changing week by week or sabbath by sabbath until from it’s darkness it is seen as a true sign upon the 7th day of the month at evening, the following day being the 8th day of sun light according to the month.

And the Sabbath or week coming to it’s full perfection of it’s sign lead by the moon to proclaim the season and the intrinsic 7th day feast of YHWH Proclaimed by Lev_23:2-4 …Concerning the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts. Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings. These are the feasts of the LORD, even holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons.

According to Psa_104:19 it is the moon that was appointed for seasons, a word which in the Hebrew is moed (i, im) and is synonymous with the word feast, as in festival as well as the word season prior spoken of in Gen_1:14 .

The Sabbath is a season or feastival time of YHWH, as well the Sabbath is a heavenly sign according to Exo_31:13 , and as thus it is easily understood that from Gen_2:2-3 the sabbath to be appointed by the moon.

The philosopher Philo, a Judean who lived at the time of Christ spoke about the seventh day thus:

And the changes which the moon works in the air, it perfects chiefly in accordance with its own configurations on each seventh day.

And of the Day the smallest and yet greatest part of this Calendar system is as well a testament of the pattern of creation, not to be ignored, as it as well begins as all things in the darkness of creation by the setting of the prior age to be arisen again in time to break forth as the light of the world, to peek at it’s highest brightness at noon day and to set again to prepare for the rebirth of the next day as to hasten along the week, the month, and the year as the most integral part of the Heavenly clock we call calendar.

Within this Heavenly system YHWH has appointed times of this Agricultural year to be times of celebration, we in English also call these feasts, yet in Hebrew they are properly called cHaG H2282: A cHaG is distinct from a season or feast because it is the time period with in the two sabbaths which cap it off so to speak. For the New Covenant recipient there are 3 major annual Agricultural feasts or cHaGs, yet all together there are 1 Passover and Unleavened Bread, 2 Pentecost or feast of weeks, 3 Trumps, 4 Day of Atonement and 5 Tabernacles. The 3 major annual feasts that all males of Israel are required to celibate before YHWH are Celebrations of Agriculture, this is why in the Pentateuch we have the agricultural name for the celebration as well: Unleavened Bread/ Abib -New Ears of barley, Pentecost, the feast of weeks is First fruits of the wheat harvest, and Tabernacles is the feast of In gathering which is at the years end.

When using the Heavenly Calendar as explained prior, which as Lev 23 told us has the Sabbath at it’s base, the whole of the Agricultural Feastivals commanded by YHWH fall neatly and succinctly into place; just as the lay out for the feastivals are capped b two Sabbaths or holy convocation, so by use of the lunar cycle in allowing the moon to appoint seasons the Feast’s Sabbath are included in the regular sabbath cycle as natural building blocks in the month and year.

Now a lot of information on this subject is already available for any one who is willing to look on RNCM website, and free for down load, which will go into the subject of the feasts in much more great detail.

Yet I would like to end this particular message on this note:

Some have said to the few of us that I know, why is it that you don’t just keep the feast days with days that are on the calendar you get from the feed stone or grocery store? It would keep us all together. There are even some who have proposed that reckoning the festivals of YHWH by a realistic Agricultural approach ignores or denies the spring equinox, which is viewed as the start of the solar year, and I’m not arguing that it is not, and some of those questions will inevitably be in the minds of some of the listeners on the net. However, here is the reasoning of why I choose to follow, and I encourage other New Covenant recipients to follow in this fashion as well:

By observing the Calendar of YHWH according to the lights in the Heavens and over laying it upon the Organic, Natural, Intrinsic Agricultural Cycle the feasts of YHWH are no longer abstract archaic reading material, the feast become a Biblical Reality! A Biblical Reality that has the ability bring a Nation together before YHWH in a literal Celebration for all the goods and produce that He gives them by His good blessings! From a Christian Reconstruction mindset, the traditional papal calendar system with it’s abstract sunday and saturday can’t hold a candle to the Heavenly lights of YHWH’s system, the ignorance of Easter and X-mas can melt away in compared to the brilliance of the light of Christ’s Resurrection during the feast of unleavened bread when the actual wave sheaf from your own hand can bring the bead of life all the more close to your walk with him.

The 4th Commandment is not a commandment that only entails the rest and worship to be had at the end of every week, it is a unifying commandment meant to bring the men and families of Christian Israel together in worship as to keep them truly one Nation under God, a Nation who can simply look up into the heavens at any given time, but particularly at the Sabbaths and New moon and remember the sabbath is a sign, a sign made to appoint seasons which remind Israel that so long as the lights of Heaven are shining to the inhabitants of Earth YHWH will not forget you or cast you off!

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

Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

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:

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;

And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me,

and keep my commandments.

Exodus 20:3-6

As was discussed prior from the key text of 2 Corinthians 3, the law may be followed by either the letter or the Spirit. The Spirit shall give life and the Letter will kill. The Law will either Curse the one who Sin’s against it or Bless them who Keep it. While both form of people will inevitably be in all societies, YHWH, desired ADaM to be Like Him, God, but never to be YHWH God.

A word needs to be spoken on the word and name God or in Hebrew AL, ALHI, ALHIM, that is the God of the bible, whos name is YHWH. The word in it’s other usages in the bible may easily be seen to also reflect the judges of Israel who carried out judicial determination upon and for the people, this is easily seen in Exo_21:6; Exo_22:8; Exo_22:9: all of which refer to the God ordained authorities as being representatives of GOD due to the exicusion of his Law as seen in Deu_19:17-18, these are undoubtedly spiritual men due to the high standards placed upon them in their selection from among the Elders, that is the old men, of Israel’s Tribes and families Exo_18:25-26 Exo_18:25-26, Deu_1:9-18, Num_1:1-54, Num_11:14-25. This forwarded by Christ in Joh_10:34 and his quote of Psa_82:6-7, that the congregations of the judges of Israel were god’s representatives, they were refereed to as gods, that is ALHIM, the judicious exercise of YHWH’s Law, is the exercise of the mind of God, and the mind of Christ, when the law is used lawfully.

Israel’s Judges were taken from among the Elders, who were the cream of the crop in wisdom, life experience and in knowledge of God’s Law, they were God’s Representatives on earth, the disregard of their lawful adjudication power was punished by death, Deu_17:8-12 And the man that will do presumptuously, and will not hearken unto the priest that standeth to minister there before the LORD thy God, or unto the judge, even that man shall die: and thou shalt put away the evil from Israel.

Consider the Genesis basis for this doctrine:

When YHWH GOD created ADaM in His own Likeness and Image Gen_1:26, He created him to have dominion, that is governance. As reality dictates and the bible confirms that God is a spirit, and as a Spirit ADaM was made in a Spiritual Likeness and Image, thus ADaM was given the Spirit of God by way of Judicious behavior like God, the reflection God’s Judgment, as focused on in the Compilation What is the (Holy) Spirit? pt.1, God’s Spirit is a Spirit of determining Truth, a Spirit of Wisdom, A Spirit of Knowledge and Understanding, A Spirit of Holiness or Purification.A

As ADaM is the temple of God’s Spirit, even in his ignorance of God’s Law man exercises the tenants of Spirit so named by the resemblance given him by nature, Yet when ADaM is obedient to the Laws and Commandments of God he is empowered from on high and prone towards his creation Blessing: Dominion of God’s Kingdom on earth. Sin against the first Commandment, as seen in the violation of the eating of the forbidden fruit of the knowledge of Good and Evil in Gen_3:1-7, that is the violation of the purity of the Holiness of God’s which was the state ADaM was made in to represent YHWH Dominion purely, until his selfish, humanist desires against God’s will took hold and he desired the wisdom only God had, of Good and Evil, a knowledge YHWH reserved to himself, that is the Rule of Law, knowledge of the difference between Good and Evil, a Knowledge that regardless of the object of the forbidden fruit, the violation of God’s strict command was the fruit of Death, by simply judging for ones own self that they were not under Dominion to God, and thus they desired to be God.

Yet it is this Law that we know is the powerful tool in making wise the simple and foolish Nation of Israel, who is the inheritor ADaM’s Dominion under Christ, and it shall be our righteousness by living in the Law and our Wickedness if not; the onus of the Spirit of Judgment is upon us according to the knowledge we now have like God, we possessors of this conscience, that is con-science to “bring-forth knowledge”.

So it is,the first Commandment is, as said, the only commandment when considering the Law of YHWH, as all violations of any Law willfully show disregard for He who is God, by giving ones obedience to another Law or services; albeit those of an Idol or strange God, or those of one’s own flesh: which is the underlying power of what is called humanism, and selfishness, ultimately the only object of worship in actual satanism as we will see by the end of this message.

When YHWH’s Law is followed: from the least to the Greatest commandment our bodies are presented as a living sacrifice, Rom_12:1, Which the Apostle tells us is our Reasonable Service, showing that the bowling down to and serving of any other God other than YHWH in sin against the 2nd commandment should very well as be seen in the service one presents as proof of His or Her obedience to the God of the Bible, the LORD YHWH, thus by willful disobedience to a Law, Statute or Command one presents their body as a living sacrifice to another God, even to ones own self.

Eve in the case of those who call them selves Bible believers, yet they disregard the Law’s of the God, YHWH, which breathed the Words of every Word and sent in the flesh His very Word, Even they who think them selves exempt from Service according the Word of God be in fact, willfully or ignorantly commit this form of Idolatry:

Eze_14:3 Son of man, these men have set up their idols in their heart, and put the stumblingblock of their iniquity before their face: should I be enquired of at all by them?

Eze_14:4 Therefore speak unto them, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Every man of the house of Israel that setteth up his idols in his heart, and putteth the stumblingblock of his iniquity before his face, and cometh to the prophet; I the LORD will answer him that cometh according to the multitude of his idols;

The form of Idolatry mentioned by Ezekiel the prophet is perhaps not the primary form of Idolatry, on account of the literal bowing down and worshiping aspects of the Commandment; however the humanism associated with both forms of worship are common. Consider the choice the worshiper of a pantheon has, they may choose if the personality and worship, thus the law of one strange god suits them other the other, and in the mind of the devotee the “gods” are willing to be tolerant to the worship of many others beside them selves. The Scripture used the word vanity to describe the act of Idolatry, we may see a usage of this in

Col_3:5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:

Col 3:6 For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:

Col 3:7 In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.

Notice how Paul uses the Idea of these violations of God’s law as covetous and Idolatry, ad in verse 7 he ends the statement with the counter-approach of the same opposing heart and mind set as YHWH specifies in His own law:

Lev_18:4 Ye shall do my judgments, and keep mine ordinances, to walk therein: I am the LORD your God.

Lev 18:5 Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments: which if a man do, he shall live in them: I am the LORD.

The mind and heart of the adherent is still the scope of the worshiper of any thing called a god, either YHWH, or a false strange so called god. The life ‘style’ or walk a person chooses as well is part of the life his god wishes him to walk in: when a person does what they want despite the law of YHWH God they are humanist, which is the predominant religion midst christians and non-christians alike in our modern day, tolerance and acceptance of portions of YHWH’s Law which even most pagan peoples held as abomination with out the knowledge of the bible are now the norm, they are none the less our modern Idolatry, vanity, emptiness. It is how most ignorantly worship the the idol of their own heart, an Idol which tolerates the Idol in every one else’s heart, so long as it is tolerant of them.

In applying the 1st and 2nd commandment, in the National sense, that is by enforcing the judgments which keep Law and Order in society, the application of the punishment for a violation of the 2nd Commandment is always death.

Deu_17:2 If there be found among you, within any of thy gates which the LORD thy God giveth thee, man or woman, that hath wrought wickedness in the sight of the LORD thy God, in transgressing his covenant,

Deu 17:3 And hath gone and served other gods, and worshipped them, either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded;

Deu 17:4 And it be told thee, and thou hast heard of it, and enquired diligently, and, behold, it be true, and the thing certain, that such abomination is wrought in Israel:

Deu 17:5 Then shalt thou bring forth that man or that woman, which have committed that wicked thing, unto thy gates, even that man or that woman, and shalt stone them with stones, till they die.

Deu_17:6 At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he that is worthy of death be put to death; but at the mouth of one witness he shall not be put to death.

Deu 17:7 The hands of the witnesses shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterward the hands of all the people. So thou shalt put the evil away from among you.

This is the summation of transgression against the 1st or 2nd Commandment:

Judgment

For when the worship or service of another God is positively seen, two must FIND one committing such WICKEDNESS, that is undeniably so, or the judgment must NOT be. One who worships another god, positively, that is they do so BEFORE the LORD YHWH, the God of the bible, they have placed this other thing called a god literally before YHWH the God of the Bible, this must be able to be proven by diligent search with a certainty of the Elders: Judges and Officers.

Most adherents to a faith, will not deny their god, thus the ability for one who is a true worshiper of a strange god should be easy. secondly, one who worships in secret will be needed to be proven by witnesses to that person’s placement of another God before the National God YHWH.

Thrid in the case of Humanism, the idols of the heart, the Law of God dictates the types of humanism and self worship that incurs death by two or three witnesses; Due to the inability for one to often witness personal, or internal self worship, the death penalty in the physical world lacks, but God will judge.

In the case of one who would boldly, or presumptuously proclaim himself as god, a god, and voice in the ears of witnesses ones belief as being greater than YHWH and his rights more needful for him to follow publicly than YHWH’s Law. Then in the case of humanism, we may also find a death penalty in a Biblical society Governed by THE COMMON LAW of GOD.

Yet here is the slippery slope of law, only by the mouth of True undeniable facts and Evidence may this judgment be carried out by Lawful Judges and Officers of the people. For if others impression, opinion, thoughts, suspicions, prejudice, or hatred would over shadow the sin against the 2nd commandment and so the 1st, by ignoring the judgment clauses of 2 or 3 witnesses, a witness being a first hand account, as well as the diligent search of the mater, and the absolute proof of the violation, only in exception to the sinner’s own admission, then by the Lawful authorities transgression of such elements of the Lawful Judgment, those judges stand as violators of the same Commandments by there own selfish motives.

Consider the following in light of this contemplation of Israel’s 1st and 2nd Commandment explained by Ezekiel:

2Th_2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

2Th 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. (1Cor_3:16-17; 1Cor_6:19; 2 Cor_6:16– Your Body is the temple)

2Th 2:5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

2Th 2:6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.

2Th 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

2Th 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

2Th 2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

2Th 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

2Th 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

2Th 2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Not much different.

Eze_14:6 Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Repent, and turn yourselves from your idols; and turn away your faces from all your abominations.

Eze 14:7 For every one of the house of Israel, or of the stranger that sojourneth in Israel, which separateth himself from me, and setteth up his idols in his heart, and putteth the stumblingblock of his iniquity before his face, and cometh to a prophet to enquire of him concerning me; I the LORD will answer him by myself:

Eze 14:8 And I will set my face against that man, and will make him a sign and a proverb, and I will cut him off from the midst of my people; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

Eze 14:9 And if the prophet be deceived when he hath spoken a thing, I the LORD have deceived that prophet, and I will stretch out my hand upon him, and will destroy him from the midst of my people Israel.

Eze 14:10 And they shall bear the punishment of their iniquity: the punishment of the prophet shall be even as the punishment of him that seeketh unto him;

Eze 14:11 That the house of Israel may go no more astray from me, neither be polluted any more with all their transgressions; but that they may be my people, and I may be their God, saith the Lord GOD.

Israel

A People who are not a People

A Foolish Nation being ground to powder

Compiled By JS Lowther

Did ye never read in the scriptures,

The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner:

this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?

 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.

And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken:

but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

Mat_21:42-44

In this time Israel exists as a Nation accourding to the promises of God spoken of throught the Law and the summarized by the prophet Jeremiah in Jer_31:35-36. That is the preserved of Israel as said by Isaiah are a Genos of people at a particular Gene-ration, the are the Gentiles, Nations, and or Ethnic people of focus in the exclusive New Covenant. As a Nation however, they lack one of the hallmark qualities all Nations posses: a Common culture or custom, a Common Law. Israel has truly become as the Curse in the Song of Moses warned because of the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters.:

Deu_32:18 Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee.

Deu 32:19 And when the LORD saw it, he abhorred them, because of the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters.

Deu 32:20 And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith.

Deu_32:21 They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.

This fact was prior spoken of 3 chapters prior of the portion we focused on in Deu_30:1-20 and Rom_10:1, as well this facet of Israel’s foolishness was also spoken of by Paul in Romans 10:19, which we covered in the introduction also, as Paul continued in his epilogue carried over from Chapter 9 which quoted the Song of Moses, via the prophet Hosea

Rom_9:25 As he saith also in Osee, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved.

Rom 9:26 And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God.

This quote from Hos_1:9-10, Hos_2:23, is the key to understanding who the Gentiles of the New Testament focus are and how they dovetail in to the New Covenant according to Heb_8:8, and Jer_31:31.

(The Hebrew words used in Hosea as a name for the symbolicly disowned house of Israel is לא עמי LA-OMI H3818 (LA-Not+ OM-people+ I-my) was first referenced in the prior Song of Moses as בלא עם / B-With +LA-No + OM -People. Lo ammi is ‘not my people’ and with No People is one and the same entity, more easily seem in the Hebrew)And while for the last 2000 years the Blood of Christ has been offering a renewal of Covenant for this foolish nation, we in fulfillment of Paul’s epistle, Isaiah’s rebuke and Moses warning have been a disobedient and gainsaying people. A people who YHWH found who were not altogether seeking Him, and a people who He has manifest himself to who did not ask for him …THIS IS BECAUSE OF GOD’S LAW

The Stone of stumbling mentioned by Isaiah and forwarded again by Paul in Rom_9:32-33 Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumbling stone; In Moses’ song of the Rock which Israel forsook, in Isaiah’s time, and in the time of Paul Both the house of Judah and the House of Israel had stumbled, Judah at the Word made flesh and the diaspora od Israel at the Law, both of which was reconciled in the life of the Word made flesh, the Rock of Israel’s faith.

No matter what estimation you take: the Law and the King are a packaged deal. Either Jew or Gentile, raised in the Law or out of the Law, the stone of the New Covenant is the foundation of God’s Kingdom.

The two aspects of this one stone are undeniable in the Scripture and are more understood in the light of the knowledge of Joh_1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth…proclamation.

Isa_8:13 Sanctify the LORD of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread.

Isa 8:14 And he shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offence to both the houses of Israel, for a gin and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

Isa 8:15 And many among them shall stumble, and fall, and be broken, and be snared, and be taken.

Isa 8:16 Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples.

Isa 8:17 And I will wait upon the LORD, that hideth his face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him.

and why was it a stumbling?

Isa_28:13 But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.

Isa 28:14 Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem.

Isa 28:15 Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:

Isa 28:16 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.

Who among us of the seed of Israel are ready to stop stumbling at the rock of offense? who is ready to stop heaping the scriptures precepts and lines one upon another that they cause us to fall backwards, be broken, snared and taken, who is ready to stop making lies our refuge? And allow the blood of Israel’s Rock to disanul the Covenant of death, the law of Sin and death Paul referenced at the starting point of the Roman’s Epilogue Ive so ardently been hinging upon.

Tyndale Rodgers and Coverdale Trans says: Isa 28:13 the LORD shall answer their stubborness.(stubbournes) (Command that may be commanded, bid that may be bidden, forbid that may be forbidden, keep back that may be kept back, here a little, there a little.) That they may go forth, fall…

The two great threats to Christian Israel are the very two aspects and definitions of the stone of stumbling and the Rock of offense, that is Grace and Law, or stated by John Grace and Truth, truth which is easily seen in

Psa_119:142 Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is the truth.

 

Our Grace in being forgiven of our sin stain, our covenant with sin and death, the law of sin and death undoubtedly is found in the Blood of Christ’s New Covenant:

Rom_5:21 That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.

Eph_2:5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

In being forgiven, in being made alive who do we yet stumble and fall? why are we yet broken?

Because we refuse to reconcile the foolishness of our Nation, we refuse to be God’s People, YHWH’s People and let him be our God as a Nation:

Deu 4:8 And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?

YHWH’s Law is the culture and custom missing from our Nation, from our Christian Nation who are rather foolish, unrighteous and at this time a People who are not a people, yet are a people who have such a rich, wise and righteous Culture available to them if they just simply would see the scriptural harmony of having there faith on Israels Rock:

The word of God made flesh, the rock who was smitten for us to forgive us and redeem us for smiting him.

NO KING BUT GOD’S KING, NO LAW BUT GOD’S LAW

And by this Introduction I hope to advance the reason why Israel needs redemption, by the blood of Christ through his grace; and why a redeemed people need God’s Law as it is the bed rock fondation of Kingdom.

Part 1

The Choice

Letter and Spirit

Death and Life

Evil and Good

Curse and Blessing

for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life. But if the ministration of death, written and engraved in stones, was glorious…which glory was to be done away:

… the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious? For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory. 2 Corinthians 3:4-9

The concept taught by the apostle is a simple concept of Love, and it’s principle is the part of God’s Law which is generally unattached to Civil or Criminal Law of any given society, yet the concept or doctrine of Law it elementary as in any given culture their are those who love their societies rule of law, and truly have faith in the letter of every law. However, this doctrine should not be confused with the complexity of the Roman usage of ‘the spirit of the law’, which points to what the ‘true intention, or what was or is the actually safe guard of the law’; some use the Roman doctrine of ‘the spirit of the law’ as the color by with to hue God’s Law, this allows for violation of God’s law in it’s letter as to in some way maintain the greater good concept, or the more important intention of the law. With the Exception for the ensuence of the Love of YHWH’s God, there is is no other Spiritual doctrine of intent found in God’s Law and the keeping of it’s Letter, as Love is the intention of every commandment by the Laws Creator and should be the intent of it’s keepers:

…from his right hand went a fiery law for them.

Yea, he loved the people; all his saints are in thy hand: and they sat down at thy feet; every one shall receive of thy words. Moses commanded us a law, even the inheritance of the congregation of Jacob. Deu_33:2-4

Joh 15:10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.

Deu 30:15 See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;

Deu 30:16 In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.

In all cases we are asked to Love the Law in it’s Spirit, it’s intention of Love, that is Life and good, yet if we view the Law of God as only a letter written on stone or paper our heart is not in the right place, and we have proof that we are not party to the new covenant.

These two approaches are summarized in Paul’s statement in

Rom 7:10 And the commandment, which was ordained to life, I found to be unto death.

Rom 7:11 For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it slew me.

Rom 7:12 Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.

Rom 7:13 Was then that which is good made death unto me? God forbid. But sin, that it might appear sin, working death in me by that which is good; that sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful.

Rom 7:14 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.

The law insomuch, as it was given by the Spirit of YHWH God, can never be carnal or derived from flesh, the law of the living God in inherintly Spiritual, holy, just and good. It is man which is carnal flesh, which will natural die. In a civil and criminal application, the spiritual Judges must be men who are Spiritual, that is they Love God’s Law, yet the Israelite has two possitions towards the covenant Law, he may Love the law and be Spiritual, or he may hate the law by seeing it as just a Letter. Those prone to the Spirit will love God’s Law and Commandments and those prone to the flesh will never see the life ordained by the Law, the carnal will always look for the way to dis-annul the Letter, because it is the Letter which will kill them, either by literal death penalties or by repentance which will kill the flesh and the lust’s there by rendering them Spiritual, the flesh is fighting for it’s existence. Every Israelite stands at the threshold of God’s Law daily, and with ever choice we weigh in the balance of every choice, our estimation of the greatest commandment. which is all in all the same as the first of the 10 commandments.

As mentioned prior the first commandment is the operating law of all Common Law and the 2nd is linked to it at the nearest point. All violations of God’s Law are violations against the 1st commandment, even the summary of the 10 commandments given by Moses and forwarded by our Christ still are only violations of the first commandment:

Mar_12:31 The first (protos) of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:

Mar 12:30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. Deu 6:4

Mar 12:31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. Lev_19:18

in finnishing Christ adds that for one to know this :

Thou art not far from the kingdom of God.

As the proto Law is for Israel to Love YHWH with heart mind and soul, we know that the under lying Covenant is being founded upon is the New Covenant which offers to place the Law of YHWH in to the same place as this Law as whell as the whole law. It is thus, that one may never keep the law with out the enactment of the new covenant faith. The New Covenant offers the Israelite of the house of Israel and Judah acceptance through the blood of Christ into the Love relationship with YHWH’s Law.

The having of No other God’s and of not serving any other God, is the Loving of God and his services, and His worship. By the letter of the law one may conclude that even an atheist or perhaps an agnostic may as well follow this command by not serving or worshiping another God, yet by recourse one may only keep this Law by loving it, and thereby loving the whole of YHWH’s Commandments and Law.

Thus the loving of one’s neighbor, which have been itemized as Laws which deal with civil relations are as well manifestations of Loving YHWH God and keeping His first commandment and His second. As many strange god’s and laws of strange god’s allow the dis-love of one’s neighbor, and as well allow the worship of other god’s beside the primary god’s of the strange religion’s law; yet the Law of the LORD God YHWH is Jealous and particular to YHWH Alone. Thus, by keeping any one of the law’s of God, from the least to the greatest, in our estimation that is, we show our Love for God and His Law, and we exercise His righteousness and Holiness.

If we are truly party to the New Covenant than the Love of God’s law in our heart, mind and soul is present, that is the Spirit of the Law, a Spirit which even Loves the Letter of the Law, which by transgression which is sin brings forth death.

Thus from hence forth in this study all Laws covered will fold up into the first commandment which is phrased in the negative:

Thou shalt NOT have No other God’s…
