Ten Commandments List From the God (YHWH) Of Israel
By Ikedi Ani-Okoye
The way the Creator (also known as God) wants us to live is important, some say that all Gods are the same but that is a choice that every individual has to make. For the purpose of this writing I will be dealing with the God of Israel that is found in the scriptures (also known as the bible).
So here is how the God of Israel wants us to live, hes laws are found in the book of Exodus Chapter 20.
The First instruction
He says we should have no other God before him.
The word God here can be translated as power, because we know in the world today that we put so many things before God, such as our careers and families.
The Second instruction
He says that we should have no graven image of anything that is in the heavens the earth or in the sea.Or bow down to them, if we do the God of Israel says that he will punish us as far as our third and fourth generation, because he we have forgotten him.
The Third Instruction
The God of Israel says not to take his name in vain. we see this everyday around us. People constantly say things like "God damn!" This is making Gods name vain because it shows a disregard for who he is.
The Fourth Instruction
The God of Israel commands us to rest on the sabbath (which means rest or seven), he says six days he work and on the seventh day he rested so he set this day apart as a day for us to rest on.
The Fifth Instruction
We are to honour our Father and Mother, so that our days will be long.
The Sixth Instruction
We should not Murder, for our own selfish gain
The Seventh Instruction
We should not commit any adultery, which is to sleep around with multiple partners.
The Eighth Instruction
We are not to steal
The Ninth Instruction
We are not to lie or be a witness against anybody that is innocent
The Tenth Instruction
The God of Israel says we should not lust after things that dont belong to us, this can be a car, house, somebodies wife etc..
We should be content with whatever we are given as believers.
In today's society the Commands given by the God of Israel tend to be over looked, but if we look deep, we can see that they are simple instructions that would only enhance our standard of living if we obeyed them.
You can find these ten instructions in Exodus Chapter 20 verses 1 to 17.
Hope you can see the simplicity in keeping the commands of the God of Israel, if you want to learn how to interpret the bible [http://www.themessiahspurpose.com/] the way it was intended check out this website at [http://www.themessiahspurpose.com/]
