THE VERTICAL RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE COMMANDMENTS
The Love Of Yahweh
I am YHWH your Elohim you shall have no other before me
If we love YHWH we will not make graven images of other gods
If we love YHWH we will not desecrate His name or use it inappropriately
If we love YHWH we will desire to spend Uninterrupted time with Him
If we love YHWH we will love and honour those whom He has chosen to represent Him in our lives
The Love Of Neighbour
Thou Shalt Not Murder
Committing adultery is a form of murdering the spouse of another, pretending mentally they do not exist or matter
Stealing from someone is the same as murdering them, pretending that their thoughts and feelings do not matter
Bearing false witness is likewise a form of murdering someone’s reputation and integrity
Coveting is the same as wishing someone dead so that you could have their blessings and good fortune.
THE HORIZONTAL RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE COMMANDMENTS
To Love YHWH God Is To Love Your Neighbour
1.I am YHWH your God you shallHave no other God before me . 1. Thou shalt not Murder
Man was created in the image of YHWH. To murder another man in any way is to desecrate the image of God. To alter the image of YHWH God is to create another image; an idol. We are to work to honour, respect and preserve the dignity of the image of God in very Man, woman.
1.Thou shalt make no graven images to worship them. 2.Thou shalt not commit adultery
Bowing to worship another gods other than the one we are bound to in covenant is the same as cheating on a spouse that we are bound to by the covenant of marriage.
1.Thou shalt not take the name of YHWH in vain 3.Thou shalt not steal
To make the name of YHWH upon oneself for personal gain or other vain pursuits is the same as stealing YHWH’s honour, glory and integrity
1. Remember the Sabbath day to keep it Holy 4.Thou shalt not bear false witness
The Sabbath day was given as a sign between YHWH and His people as a token of the covenant, so that they might know that I am Yahweh who sanctifies them. To break the Sabbath day is to give the false testimony that we are not a member of the covenant or bound by the Torah.
1Honour thy father and mother 5. Thou shalt not covet
Since YHWH is SPIRIT and cannot be seen, He has chosen to manifest Himself through His creation. Parents are the first authorities placed over us to manifest YHWH in our lives. When we covet we are showing our dissatisfaction with those in authority over us and with their leadership. We must remember that YHWH chose our parents. There is however the reality of human sin and not all parents are honourable in the way they exercise their office before YHWH. We must understand that to honour our parent’s means that we are honouring YHWH even when our earthly parents are dishonourable in their conducts, we still live in such a way as to bring honour to their names. We must not covet other leaders or parents than those whom YHWH has appointed over us.
THE UNITY OF THE TORAH
What we have demonstrated here is that there is a unique unity to the Torah. YHWH, “Hear O Isreal.....” is explained by the Two Great Commandments to” Love Yahweh and to Love thy Neighbour.” How to love YHWH and Love our neighbour is explained by the Two tablets of the Ten commandments. How to keep the Ten commandments is further explained and elaborated on by the 613 commandments illuminated in the rest of the Torah. The 613 Laws refers to the whole Torah. These simple charts show that there is no way you can Love Yahweh without Loving our neighbour. We can not divide the Torah nor the commandments one from the other, FOR THEY ARE TRULY ONE AS YHWH IS ONE
How to Love Yahweh
I would like to define Love -: Yes Love is a spiritual feeling, after all Love is a heartfelt Mind Set, but just because we are emotional towards our creator or even “Misty Eyed” does not mean we love Yahweh. It is not we, but Yahweh Himself, who determines what Love is. If our actions are based on human Sentiments and Notions of Love, towards our creator, then we will not able to please Yahweh, even if we feel we are expressing genuine Love towards YHWH. Yahweh considers Love to be an Action Taken that is Both Selfless and Voluntarily Obedient To His WILL. Yahweh made it this way because He knows without true Love false believers cannot mentally force themselves to be Obedient. No human being can go against his or her true nature. They try but will feel that they are being oppressed and ultimately turn there backs on the will of YHWH that is why the world will celebrate pagan holidays instead of the Creator’s Holy Days (which they do not Love). I believe that the word Holidays was derived fro YHWH’s Holy Days. Which one do you prefer HOLY DAYS OR HOLIDAYS.
So what is Yahweh’s Will?
Yahweh’s Will is found written in His Righteous Commandments; the intent of which can only be properly discerned by the true believers through a heart (deep mental-Spirit character) of selfless Love. This is contrast to false believers because they look for Loopholes in the Yahweh’s words or His commandments no to be OBEDIENT. But those that Love Yahweh will see nothing but harmony in Yahweh’s word and be Obedient to it. What people fall to understand is that every word from Yahweh’s Spiritual Mouth is a commandment and a Lesson in the understanding of His very Nature (of Righteous Love). Yahweh doesn’t make suggestions, and he doesn’t waste his time or our time with idle conversations.
In 2 Timothy chap 2 vs. 19-22 He said the foundation of Yahweh stands sure, that is why when Yahweh says to keep my Sabbath day Holy, He shouldn’t have to keep on repeating Himself like some human parents do with there stiff-necked children. Yahweh expects us to be still, to Listen and Dwell on His every word by obeying them. If we find ourselves searching for reasons not to keep His True Sabbath (Friday evening to Saturday evening sunset) or not obeying any other commandments then we do have an attitude that is pleasing to YAHWEH. So if you claim you Love YAHWEH Then Keep His Commandments All of them and Love thy Neighbour as Thyself Yahweh first Loved us enough to give us HIs Grace. So we his human creation would not perish, but have eternal Life. This is the Only Gift Yahweh cannot give to himself. The Only Gift that is only mankind can give, The Only Gift that Yahshua Messiah freely gave to His Father Yahweh, as an example to mankind. This Gift is not physical, not even the blood of sacrifice. Yahweh wants but cannot possess until we give it to him; That one Gift is our returned Love in the form of an Obedient Righteousness Seeking Spirit that has our individual name on it. If we can sacrifice SELF-centeredness in favour of YHWH –centeredness will discover Righteous Love Begets Righteous Love.
Ephesians 4: 22-24, Matt 6 : 25-34, Matt 4: 4.
Love is the centre piece of YHWH’s commandments and without Love you can make to the kingdom of YHWH. Lets all work harded to make by obey his commandments because it is for our own Good.
