The Commandments of God, Part 3: Rethinking The Removal of The 10 Commandments

To read Part 1, click here…Daily Devotional, Year 2 – JULY 28 (The Commandments of God, Part 1: The True Light Now Shineth!)

“Now we know that what things soever the law saith,

it saith to them who are under the law:

that every mouth may be stopped,

and all the world may become guilty before God.”

Romans 3:19

.

.

.

.

There was a joke which circulated through the Christian community a few years back, that went something like this:

.

A boy came to his teacher after class, saying, “Hey Teach!”

.

“Yes, Johnny?”http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Thou_shalt_not_steal.jpg

.

“So you say that we don’t have to obey the Ten Commandments anymore?”

.

“That’s right Johnny! The 10 Commandments were the product of mere humans, and not to be regarded.”

.

Well, Teach, then God doesn’t care if I steal a car?”

.

“Well Johnny, actually there is no God. So how could He possibly care if you steal a car, if He doesn’t really even exist?”

.

“So you’re saying it’s not wrong to steal a car?”http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Thou_shalt_not_steal.jpg

.

“Well, I suppose you’re right, up to a certain degree.”

.

“So Teach, then it’s not wrong if I steal that nice shiny car out there in the parking lot, that belongs to you?”

.

“Well now Johnny, that happens to be that very certain degree, I just mentioned, where it does become wrong to steal!”

SURVIVAL OF THE STRONGEST

.

Well, you get the point of this little joke. If the 10 Commandments are merely the work of men, and God doesn’t really exist, then they do not have to be obeyed.

And if they do not have to be obeyed, then who’s to say what is right and what is wrong?

.

It’s now just survival of the fittest: the strongest in the world, overtaking the weaker!

.

Since atheism has risen to power, there has been a steadily growing movement to remove any and every Christian object or sentiment from public viewing.

.

And these secularists are working around the clock to remove anything Christian, including the 10 Commandments from the public.

INSANITY NOW IN VOGUE

.

The problem is, when you tell people they don’t have to obey the 10 commandments, then what can you expect? A free-for-all? Anarchy? Mob rule? And isn’t that what’s beginning to happen right now in society?

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Boston_Marathon_explosions_(8652877581).jpg

.

Yes, this society is beginning to turn most everything upside down! The police are now often considered the bad guys. 

.

And criminals, “are just trying to get ahead in life, and expressing their frustration about being oppressed, and need to be understood, rather than severely punished.”

.

Does this sound crazy?

.

Yes, very crazy!

COMMANDMENTS GIVEN TO HOLD SOCIETY TOGETHER

.

But how could a rational society allow this unthinkable situation to become the norm? Well obviously, it won’t be long until all Hell breaks loose! And once that lawlessness rises to intolerable levels, then society will try to back-peddle. But at that point it will be too late!

.

God gave the world the 10 Commandments to hold this world together. And when a society no longer tolerates these laws, then sooner or later that society will be destroyed from within…

.

Listen…“Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.” Romans 3:19

.

Yes, the 10 commandments were given to this whole unsaved world, to show us our guilt, thereby condemning our rebellion against Heaven!

LAWLESSNESS RISING

 

.

Just look around! Immorality is rising to pandemic proportions! Crime is rapidly growing! The courts are finding it harder and harder to respect the rule of law! Many politicians make regulations according to who passes the most “contributions” to them “under the table.”

.

In the business world, it’s called, “Risk Management: Whatever we can get away with!” There is rapidly declining morality in the business world. At least it seems that way, doesn’t it?

.

And our young people saturate themselves with songs about violence and lust, via their high-tech devices!

SURVIVAL OF THE STRONGEST?

.

While Bible stories were once taught in public schools, they are now banned! The Bible is now a forbidden Book in our schools!

.

And atheistic educators are raising the current generation on the idea that there is no God. And if nature lives by the law of, “the survival of the fittest”, don’t they think that their students can put 2+2 together? Don’t they think that children are smart enough to adopt this “law of the jungle” ideology into their own human lives as well?

.

“If I can get away with it, then what’s wrong with doing it? I just won’t get caught! It’s just the survival of the fittest!”

HOW’S YER LAWLESSNESS WORKIN’?

.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:G20_climate_camp_police_kettling_protesters.jpg

There is a popular saying which goes, “Well, how’s yer (this or that) workin’ out for ya?”

.

This currently popular saying is always said in a sarcastic tone, and yet as we look around, it almost makes a person want to defiantly ask secularists that very question! “How’s yer removing of the 10 Commandments workin’ out for ya?”

IS GOD WITHDRAWING?

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:29.9.14_Hong_Kong_protest_near_Tamar.jpg

Well, what is God supposed to do when a society wants nothing to do with Him? Is He going to let us have our own way?

.

Yes, it seems that God is gradually removing His protection away from this world. And perhaps, that is why we are seeing the four winds of societal turmoil rapidly increasing to an almost hurricane force!

GOOD NEWS?

.

Is there any Good News here? Is there any hope? Is it too late for the world?

http://www.muskegonartmuseum.org/collections-gallery/gallery

.

Listen… “Come, My people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For, behold, the LORD cometh out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.” Isaiah 26:20, 21

.

Here is the only place of hope! The storm that’s approaching is the greatest and most terrible storm to ever come upon this earth! This storm will destroy from one end of the earth to the other! But it will begin at the house of God.

.

If ever there was a time to flee from the wrath to come, it is NOW!

EARTH: PLANET OF REST

.

Counting the Sun as the 1st heavenly sphere, the Earth is the 4th heavenly sphere. If we extend our theory (and it’s just a theory) that God created our solar system to correspond to the commandments, the Sun corresponding to the 1st Commandment, then Planet Earth would http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:The_Earth_seen_from_Apollo_17.jpgcorrespond to the 4th Commandment: the Seventh-day Sabbath.

 .

And so, on the very planet that corresponds to the commandment that exalts the idea of “peace” and “rest”, there exists very little peace. And very little rest. Ironic, isn’t it? 

.

And so the 4th member of our solar system, being Planet Earth, will be the host for this article.
