God's Everlasting Covenant (Ten Commandment Law)

Psalm 89:34:

My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.

God's covenant which He spoke can be compared to His Ten Commandment Law. Deuteronomy 4:13 calls the Ten Commandments "His covenant"; and Exodus 20:1 says that He audibly spoke it to His people. With that being said, why is there so much confusion as to whether or not we should keep the Ten Commandments, including the seventh-day Sabbath (many people believe that the Sabbath was changed from Saturday to Sunday)?

Psalm 89:34 makes it pretty clear to me. God's Law does not change. I think the problem here is not with the Law; it's with people who don't want to obey God's Law. I'm sorry if that sounds harsh; but I don't know any better way of putting it. Maybe someone reading this needed to see it like that in order to realize that they are in disobedience to God.

If you have realized that you are out of God's will after reading this hub, there is still hope for you. Where there is life, there's hope. All you have to do is ask for God's pardon and repent of your disobedience. Now is not the time to play games with God and His Word. Jesus is coming soon.

God bless you.

Prayer: God, forgive me for my disobedience towards you. Please help me to be faithful to your Word. Help me to prepare for Jesus' soon return and your kingdom of righteousness by practicing living according to your Word here and now. Thank you. In Jesus' name. Amen.

      So where exactly are the tablets with the commandments NOW?

      I agree with you Greg that the problem is that people do not want to follow God's moral law. Jesus made the law even more stringent. He set an even higher standard. He said we would have to do far better than the Pharisees. No eye for and eye and a tooth for a tooth for Jesus. We were told to love our enemies. Adultery? He told us that even if we looked at another with lust, we had commited that sin in our hearts already. People want easy ways out. There are none. The way is narrow. Amen.

      Jesus clearly said we have now (under new covenant) 2 commandments. He also said that the others that were previously in effect are included in these two as well as a stricter code to live by, HIS example. The ten were for the hebrews. The two are for us.

      The Law is finished, Jesus FULFILLED it as prophesied on the cross.

      We live under grace not law. If you want to keep any part of the law then scripture says you obligate yourself to keep ALL 600 plus of them because you are rejecting Jesus work on the cross.

      hidden in the ark of the covenant with the Lord in Heaven until the end-- judgement

      Rev 11:15-19

      15 Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, "The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!" 16 And the twenty-four elders who sat before God on their thrones fell on their faces and worshiped God, 17 saying:

      "We give You thanks, O Lord God Almighty,

      The One who is and who was and who is to come,

      Because You have taken Your great power and reigned.

      18 The nations were angry, and Your wrath has come,

      And the time of the dead, that they should be judged,

      And that You should reward Your servants the prophets and the saints,

      And those who fear Your name, small and great,

      And should destroy those who destroy the earth."

      19 Then the temple of God was opened in heaven, and the ark of His covenant was seen in His temple. And there were lightnings, noises, thunderings, an earthquake, and great hail.

      celafoe. Hello in love. It is absolutely true what Revelation said. Here is my thought. People will be judged by the Law. I think Israel will be for sure who do not receive Lamb of God. I believe we were already judged and become covered by the Grace. Lamb of God was already sacrificed and we are free. He took our sin and gave us His righteousness. Glory to God! Did I said it right?

      No the law has absolutely no further use as it was fulfilled, which completes it and it no longer has any use. Other then anything that we can learn by studying it and the effects of it.

      Judgement for entry will be strictly on whether or not one has accepted Jesus as personal savior. We don't really know what it means but apparently there is some sort of reward system based on our actions a Christian. But as far as our personal judgement i agree if we are his we are allowed entry into the Kingdom and only have to answer to the reward basis.

      Current Israel has no special standing with God since they rejected Christ at the cross. God has promised to open their eyes before the end so they can see truth. This will be a sign of the time and I expect great numbers of them to come to Christ at that time

      Other than the law I believe our difference is only semantic.

      I ask God to open our eyes to further understand scripture as we journey on with Him. God bless you

      You are so right Greg. God's law is everlasting.

      It is those who wish to sin, who fight the hardest, and gets the angriest, in their quest to prove that the law has been abolished.

      If everything had been fulfilled, we would no longer be here, because Heaven and Earth would have passed

      Matthew 5:18

      For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

      again-- remember that DS is jewish and therefore does not understand and misinterprets the new testament and Christianity as only those Christians filled with the Holy Spirit have a clear understanding of.

      here are the words of Jesus pertaining to this discussion of the law.

      MT 5:17 "Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill.

      MT 5:18

      For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled.

      The law was not perpetual as in forever as so many say. read the above carefully and go read it in the old testament for your self.

      It clearly says that it will last UNTIL IT IS FULFILLED which Jesus did thereby ending it.

      What laws did he fulfill? Please list them

      All of the Messianic laws have yet to be fulfilled

      Yahshua said he filled only the laws about him. He did not fulfill every law there is

      Luke 24:44

      "And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me."

      All the things occurred that the prophets prophesied about, concerning Yahshua. Because God spoke through the prophets, everything had to occur when and how he said it would.

      Matthew 5:18

      "For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled."

      Yahsua came to reveal the full meaning of the Law by living it. He made it complete and revealed the complete law to us. For example He defined the law "Thou shalt not kill" in Matthew 5:21-22

      21. "Ye have heard that it was said of them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:

      22. But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire."

      Poor Celafoe doesn't know how to interpret the meaning of scripture

      People who want to sin say the laws are not needed
