The 10 Commands, who they are for and beyond
2John 1:6 And this is the love, that we walk according to His commands. This is the command, that as you have heard from the beginning, you should walk in it.
Exo 20:1-5 And Elohim spoke all these Words, saying, “I am Yahweh your Elohim, who brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim (Egypt), out of the house of slavery. “You have no other mighty ones against My face. “You do not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of that which is in the heavens above, or which is in the earth beneath, or which is in the waters under the earth, you do not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, Yahweh, your Elohim am a jealous Ěl, visiting the crookedness of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me,
Look at the children of today. Their parents have not taught them in the way they should go. YAH’S blessing has left them. YAH is so merciful that these same children may reclaim the blessing by walking as Messiah Yahshua walked.
Exo 20:6-7 but showing kindness to thousands, to those who love Me and guard My commands. “You do not bring the Name of Yahweh your Elohim to naught, for Yahweh does not leave the one unpunished who brings His Name to naught.
Exo 20:8-11 “Remember the Sabbath day, to set it apart. “Six days you labour, and shall do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of Yahweh your Elohim. You do not do any work – you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. “For in six days Yahweh made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore Yahweh blessed the Sabbath day and set it apart.
Why does it say, ‘Remember’ , if the 7th day Sabbath hasn’t been in place since creation? Study Hebrews Chapter 4. Did you catch that? Yahweh said, ‘the seventh day is a Sabbath of Yahweh‘! Not the Yahudim (Jews) Sabbath day of rest. See also Lev. 23.
Exo 20:12-17 “Respect your father and your mother, so that your days are prolonged upon the soil which Yahweh your Elohim is giving you. “You do not murder. “You do not commit adultery. “You do not steal. “You do not bear false witness against your neighbour. “You do not covet your neighbour’s house, you do not covet your neighbour’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, or whatever belongs to your neighbour.”
John 15:10 “If you guard My commands, you shall stay in My love, even as I have guarded My Father’s commands and stay in His love“.
1Jn 5:2-3 By this we know that we love the children of Elohim, when we love Elohim and guard His commands. For this is the love for Elohim, that we guard His commands, and His commands are not heavy.
Ecc 12:13 Let us hear the conclusion of the entire matter: Fear Elohim and guard His commands, for this applies to all mankind!
The Old Covenant wasn't just for the Jews but for anyone who would accept YAH's laws.
Gen 26:5 because Abraham obeyed My voice and guarded My Charge: My commands, My laws, and My teaching.
That doesn’t say Abraham obeyed ‘the Jews’ voice, charge, commands, laws and teaching. Abraham obeyed Yahweh. Which is more proof that YAH’S laws have been around since creation. Abraham wasn’t called a Jewish man! He was a chosen man of YAH and a Hebrew.
Matt 22:14 “For many are called, but few are chosen.”
It wasn't just the tribe of Yahudah that came out of Egypt.
Gen 41:50-52 And to Yoseph (Joseph) were born two sons before the years of scarcity of food came, whom Asenath (Egyptian woman), the daughter of Poti-Pherah priest of On, bore to him. And Yoseph called the name of the first-born Menashsheh, “For Elohim has made me forget all my toil and all my father’s house.” And the name of the second he called Ephrayim, “For Elohim has caused me to bear fruit in the land of my affliction.”
Yoseph’s children were half Egyptian.
Exo 12:38 And a mixed multitude went up with them too, also flocks and herds, very much livestock.
Exo 12:49 “There is one Torah for the native-born and for the stranger who sojourns among you.”
Lev 24:22 Ye shall have one manner of law, as well for the stranger, as for one of your own country: for I am Yahweh your Elohim.
Deut 29:10-13 “All of you are standing today before Yahweh your Elohim: your leaders, your tribes, your elders and your officers, all the men of Yisra’el (Israel), your little ones, your wives, and your sojourner who is in the midst of your camp, from the one who cuts your wood to the one who draws your water, so that you should enter into covenant with Yahweh your Elohim, and into His oath, which Yahweh your Elohim makes with you today, in order to establish you today as a people for Himself, and He Himself be your Elohim, as He has spoken to you, and as He has sworn to your fathers, to Abraham, to Yitshak (Isaac), and to Ya’aqob (Jacob).
That was anyone who would agree to keep YAH‘s Law.
Deut 29:14-15 “And not with you alone I am making this covenant and this oath, but with him who stands here with us today before Yahweh our Elohim, as well as with him who is not here with us today.
Isa 56:1-8 Thus said Yahweh, “Guard right-ruling, and do righteousness, for near is My deliverance to come, and My righteousness to be revealed. “Blessed is the man who does this, and the son of man who lays hold on it, guarding the Sabbath lest he profane it, and guarding his hand from doing any evil.“And let not the son of the foreigner who has joined himself to Yahweh speak, saying, ‘Yahweh has certainly separated me from His people,’ nor let the eunuch say, ‘Look I am a dry tree.’ ” For thus said Yahweh, “To the eunuchs who guard My Sabbaths, and have chosen what pleases Me, and hold fast to My covenant: to them I shall give in My house and within My walls a place and a name better than that of sons and daughters – I give them an everlasting name that is not cut off. “Also the sons of the foreigner who join themselves to Yahweh, to serve Him, and to love the Name of Yahweh, to be His servants, all who guard the Sabbath, and not profane it, and hold fast to My covenant – them I shall bring to My set-apart mountain, and let them rejoice in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and their slaughterings are accepted on My altar, for My house is called a house of prayer for all the peoples.” The Master Yahweh, who gathers the outcasts of Yisra’el, declares, “I gather still others to him besides those who are gathered to him.”
Deu 10:12-13 “And now, Yisrael, what is Yahweh your Elohim asking of you, but to fear Yahweh your Elohim, to walk in all His ways and to love Him, and to serve Yahweh your Elohim with all your heart and with all your being, to guard the commands of Yahweh and His laws which I command you today for your good?
We ARE Yisrael! Whether you're a native born Yisraelite or a Gentile seeking to serve the Most High YAH (which will make you a Yisraelite), you must keep HIS Commands, to truly serve HIM in Spirit and Truth. Remember Ruth? She was a Moabitess whom loved YAH and wanted to serve HIM. And serve she did! By engrafting in to one of the tribes of Yisrael.
