Thou shalt not Covet thy Neighbour’s house,

Thou shalt not Covet thy neighbour’s wife,

Nor his manservant, nor his maidservant,

Nor his ox, nor his ass,

Nor Any Thing That is Thy Neighbour’s.

Exodus 20:17 / Deuteronomy 5:21

 

There is no significant difference in the Hebrew text of Exodus from that of Deuteronomy for the purpose of this compilation to draw attention to,The Hebrew verb and nouns through out the text of both are identicle, English word desire as found in the place of Covet in Exodus is as well the same Hebrew word: HeMaD.

HeMaD is translated neutrally and context defines the word as to a positive or negative. Yet there is one thing to be noticed that  in seemingly every instance HeMaD can swiftly become evil in it’s context, no matter how innocent the desire, coveting, pleasure is, with in the back drop of every situation is the looming Evil of it’s desire beyond Justice or Righteousness.

In the Greek the word Epi-Thumeh-seis / επιθυμησεις G1937 is a compound word constructed into a verb, which is that of epi- added to the root word to show supper-imposition, this is still done in English words taken from Greek which we still use (Epidemic, epilogue, epitomize), that is: on, upon in the sense of beyond (G1909) + the word Thume , a word which in scripture is used to signify the essence of a matter or situation, it is the word used to describe God’s pondering on why he made wicked Adam in the earth Gen_6:6 , it is the essence of Esau’s anger against Jacob Gen_27:45, the longing of Jacob towards his fathers house Gen_31:30, as well it is essence of the inscents of the altar of YHWH Exo_25:6, the word indicates as our English still shows the ‘Theme’ of the situation, thus together this word shows the epi-theme, it is ‘beyond the theme’ the intensity of the theme. A related word, Epithem, in medical terms this a word still understood as a medical treatment to be applied externally, An external application of a topical medicine. Such as a liquid in which cloth is dipped for pain relief or healing, to be applied to an area of the body in need of treatment. Offering the Idea of placing the substance to aid upon the area; as well if the liquid in which the cloth was dipped were damaging to an area it would nevertheless be a epithem, yet not for the purpose of healing, but rather for the purpose of causing illness.

SIN is an ILLNESS,

it starts with Epithumesis

 

In the Greek construct of the 10 Commandments, as was discussed concerning Adultery, and in noticeable distinction from the Hebrew construct, Killing, Adultery, Stealing, False witness, and Covetousness are all converted into conditions; as we would understand it’s grammatical construct today, that is all of the words describing the forbidden act have the ending of ‘σεις ‘ seis ‘ or ‘εις eis ‘ , thereby rendering the commandment as a forbiddence towards a conditional behavior, such as we may understand other Greek words in English, one who has the condition of Arthritis has affliction to what was once refereed to as the Artus, arteries of the limbs, one who has Paralysis, the inability to move, is the affliction of one with a Palsy, one who has the condition of Narcosis is want to use a Narcotics or to be overly tiered, sleepy.

This choice of wording makes the prior commands including this 10th commandment a condition as well.

As the people of Scriptural Covenant, one is assumed by birth into the covenant of ones parents, this may lead to the blessing of righteousness in obedience or curse by wicked disobedience and rejection (Lev 26:44-45), yet one who is born to Parents of the Covenant are covenant children in the flesh, and before them lay a choice: to become a spiritual child of the covenant, by placing the WORD of YHWH in ones heart and mind and inward parts or to take on the body of sin and death contrary to the body of the resurrected Christ by an infectious illness which treatens the health and Common-Wealth of Israel, yea, the which is the core of the Common-Wealth, as the Ecclasia / Church as the Body of Christ can not be affected by such illness, rather when such a illness is allowed to persist with in the epidermis of the body, that is the outer layer who is member to the Common-Wealth by mere parentage and not by the personal New Covenant of Christ; those outer portions must be removed from the Common body as not to destroy the Wealth when the infection is made manifest! The Condition and illness found in this conclusionary 10th Commandment is damning and dangerous, while it’s symptoms are hidden in there early stages with in the heart and mind full of Lust or Covetousness, desire or pleasure in those things which are not intended for the families of Israel to be engaged in, it is by this same illness of Covetousness that the wicked are allowed to persist in close proximity to the Body of Christ, thereby causing the Church to be bed mates with a body of death and causing the infection to become transferable by it’s lack of self treatment with the healing power of the Spirit of God.

The Ambassador Paul admonishes us to:

Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts / Covetousness thereof. Rom_6:12

Specifically, The Commandment speaks of Coveting that which is thy neighbors, as the word was used prior it is used now, with in the common-Wealth what is our neighbors is his, by the Lawful Right given by God as a Citizen, this Law aims to curb secession of God’s Kingdom contained with in the Common-Wealth of Israel’s inheritance, not only of possessions but of Covenant and Law give to the Congregation of Jacob (Deu_33:4) In Coveting that which is thy neighbors we covet that which YHWH’s has given others with in the Common-Wealth beside thee: His wife, His House, His servants, His animals or anything that is his truly. It is this Covetousness that fuels all sin contrary to the LAW, even by coveting any thing which is thy neighbors, calls upon covetousness directed towards a Kingdom of neighbors or brothers who posses the whole of God’s Law as an inheritance, thus implicating sin upon one who covets the breaking of those Commandments which seemingly to our fleshly mind only pertain to our personal relationship with YHWH; yet by moving beyond covetousness and manifesting sin in our actions we literally rob the Common-Wealth of it’s blessing and inheritance by God’s Law.

 

 

It is with this mind honed in on this illness that this last and 10th Commandment of the Common Law is spoken of by biblical context, as in the often mentioned poetry of Almighty God, this 10th command lay at the core of the very first ill against YHWH God the creator, a sin which sought to replace the very power of He Who Is God.

I-SR-A-EL

A people of Self Dominion

Ruled by the Law of YHWH GOD

The account of Genesis and the Origins of Adamic society is the pedigrees of the Ordained Common Law of ‘He who rules with God’ or ‘Israel’, it is this concept which was the intention of the dominion or governance mandate of Gen 1:26-28, and this conceptual title is found in the name given to Jacob and his son’s in the name of I-SR-AEL.

Covetousness is in the heart and mind, it is the beginning and the end of self government, that is the Governing of ones self, which is basis upon which all Commandments and Laws of God are kept, ignored or abandoned by the will of man; by the giving of this will to choose whom we will serve the nature of the spiritual likeness and image is perceived, it is at the aim of covetousness, desire or pleasure that the will of the inward man is made know and the will of the flesh made evident. It is here that Covetousness with in this Society is the Engine of both life and death, Good and Evil, blessing and cursing.

 

(EPITHUMET’ICAL, a. [Gr.] Inclined to lust; pertaining to the animal passion. Webster’s 1828)

 

Consider:

Covetousness /HeMaD, is first referenced

Gen_2:8 And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put those of the ADaM whom he had formed. (reference the LXX, and the Hebrew of Deu_5:24, Isa_6:12, Zec_11:6 as example of how this is not refering to one man named Adam)

Gen_2:9 And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

 

This country where Adam Folk were set to tend and till, there was grown pleasant or coveted crops and trees, beautiful in sight, good for food, as well in ADaM’s native land were 2 very special trees: Life, and Knowledge: of course we know Knowledge teaches Good and Evil.

(after the description of the home land, the native land it is told of ADaM’s Garden)

Gen_2:15 And the LORD God took the ADaM, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.

Gen 2:16 And the LORD God commanded the ADaM, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:

Gen_2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

So, according to Gen_2:9 this tree which is forbidden, The Knowledge of Good and Evil, is a pleasant or coveted tree, but it’s effect is death to ADaM in the day he eats of it.

This is where at this time ADaM is in the Garden of the Lord, he is given provisions of food, yet he is required even at this time work, tend or till this Garden to maintain his life, as well ADaM is given dominion.

YHWH God tells the ADaM, ‘it’s all yours except for that tree, that 1 tree is mine, you can have all the others and the tree of Life, but that one tree is mine alone’ As creator YHWH God has this Right of course to reserve for Him self any thing he desired, and what YHWH desired was the knowledge of Good and Evil reserved to Him self, it was His property, and stigma attached to that tree, regardless of what the opinion on the physical make up of that tree is, it’s stigma is it’s YHWH’s, He coveted it to be His Own, His pleasure, delight or covetousness, it was His property, it was His plain and simple.

And as ADaM was made in the image and likeness of God it was as well pleasant, desirable and coveted as beautiful to the senses of ADaM as well, as to what was desired is the focus is found in the next portion of the Holy text:

Gen_3:1 Now the serpent (Eh-NaHeS, or Gk. Opis: referencing a literal Serpent type creature) was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

Gen 3:2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

Gen 3:3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

Gen 3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

Gen_3:5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

 

Gen_3:6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good (desirable) for food, and that it was pleasant (good) to the eyes, and a tree to be desired (Coveted) to make wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

And for the present record, the serpant was not lying about the affect of the fruit of the tree, the eating of knowledge, as to open ADaM’s eyes as God’s to know good and evil, as YHWH himself says:

Gen 3:22 And YHWH God said, Behold, the ADaM is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:..

Consider Gen_3:6, this is a place where the pleasantness of this particular forbidden tree is described, wat it’s desire was, it’s pleasantness it’s Covetousness: this covetousness was spelled out and well defined by the angelic serpant, angelic, I say because this Serpent was a messenger, made by YHWH, accourding to Gen_3:1 “more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made”. Like the story of Balaam’s ass, who’s mouth was opened to persuade the madness of the YHWH fearing prophet Balaam, this Serpents mouth was opened for one reason, a reason the text clearly told us:

Gen 3:5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

God used this subtle beast to prove, test or try the ADaM. The Serpent plays the role of the divine revelation, an anomaly that is undoubtedly God sent, and it was, a situation so bazaar that the woman and man who partook of the situation would have to knowledgeably engage, willfully engage, that is as is shown in the woman’s contemplation of self convincing, it is description of the cognition of every action we make against another’s possessions as well as those things God has forbid his people to partake it by his parental guidance: personal desire, personal pleasure, selfishness, to the end of personal deification or heart placed Idolatry. (Leading us back to the first and second commandment, full circle.)

…believe not every spirit, but try the spirits…

…or an angel from heaven…

Gal_1:8 / 1Jn_4:1

Consider the Serpents part as described in

Deu_13:1 If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder,

Deu_13:2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them;

Deu 13:3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.

Deu 13:4 Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.

Paul as well teaches this same truth:

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.

 

In the case of our fore bearers of ADaM Folk, they did not love the truth of God’s Word, thet didn’t believe it by Faith, they didn’t trust YHWH when He said “for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.”.

 

Thus no matter where the Covetousness comes from, even if from an angel from heaven, the Word of YHWH is greater, and is sustained, the simplicity of thou shalt and thou shalt not thwarts the non-commanded constructive inferences of any approach seemingly contrary to the Word of God.

The desire we have to take for our own pleasure is being curbed by this 10th Common Law in our heart and mind, before it is manifest in our life by our coupling Covetousness, desire or pleasure’s pull with the actual committing of any other Commandment: Killing, Adultery, Stealing or False witness agaist our neighbor.

And while not directly applied by the 10th Commandment, it is undoubtedly implied by the context of the word and it’s first case example as shown in the Account of Genesis as well as that which is seen beyond the pentauch that Coventing to Not Worship YHWH by Idolitry, Vanity, Ignoring the Sabbath, or Dishonoring Parents is as well Sin, which have it’s wage to be payed as Death in it’s manifestation.

Like Brute beasts made to be…

A Society that practices Covetousness is a society that has tasted of the forbidden fruit of desire and pleasure, which in and of it’s self is a heart and mind set that is not easily curbed. Like a brute beast is drawn by repetition to return to what it desires, mindlessly drawn by the pleasure of the experience had the prior day so man partakes of the same nature. Yet as well by Grace some who are called see this nature of covetousness in the flesh and break it’s condemnation.

For it is sin, taking occasion by the commandment, wrought in me all manner of covetousness.

For without the law sin was dead. For I was alive without the law once:

but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died.

Rom_7:8-9

 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?

Rom 7:24

I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord…

Rom 7:25

 

The LAW of YHWH IS TREASURE

to be Coveted!

Psa_19:10 More to be desired ( Coveted ) are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

Psa 19:11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.

Psa 19:12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.

Psa 19:13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.

Psa 19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

Solomon goes on to describe Godly Covetousness of YHWH’s treasured Law:

Pro_21:20 There is treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the wise; but foolish ADaM spendeth it up.

Pro 21:21 He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, righteousness, and honour.

Pro 21:22 A wise man scaleth the city of the mighty, and casteth down the strength of the confidence thereof.

 

Ending off with this admonition:

 

 

Rom_8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Rom 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

Rom 8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

Rom 8:4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

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.
