The Ten Commandments Is Eternal And Universal

One of the greatest lies Satan the devil and his deceitful ministers has been spreading for hundreds of years is that the Ten Commandments of Yahweh were nailed to the stake (cross). The great deceiver and his clever, fake preachers has caused many to believe Yahshua Messiah sacrificed His life so that we would have no longer to walk in obedience to Yahweh’s loving and perfect Ten Commandments Law. But ask yourself this: Why would Almighty Yahweh abolish a law that defines for us how to love Him and our fellow human beings? You owe it to yourself and your loved ones to examine this very, very important topic in the light of Scriptures to find the real answer. It’s highly imperative you know the truth. Why? Because the truth shall set you free from the bondage of deception and sin! As always we will let the Bible interpret itself and prove the Ten Commandments is eternal and universal, which means they are forever binding to all people, and it applies to all the different generations, of all times. The Almighty Yahweh repeatedly states in the Bible that He gave it to benefit the people and to bring great blessings on them. Notice how clearly this verse state this truth: “You shall therefore keep His statutes and His commandments which I command you today, that it may go well with you and with your children after you, and that you may prolong your days in the land which Yahweh your Elohim is giving you for ever” (Deuteronomy 4:40). Got the word “for ever” here?

Some of you may already know the Ten Commandments but many still don’t, so we are going to review them one by one to remind you of these eternal and holy Law. These holy commands are the foundation of all Yahweh’s laws that show us how to love Him and how to love our fellow man. They were already in effect long before the people known as the Jews existed! They define behavior that naturally results in peace, safety and prosperity. These sacred commands are listed twice in the Holy Scriptures (Exodus 20:12-17; Deuteronomy 5:16-21) to show all of us its everlasting importance. Written with the finger of Yahweh on tablets of stone, the Ten Commandments is, again, binding to us all. Let us note that Yahweh’s Law is not something that is against us. On the contrary, it is holy, and just and good (Romans 7:12). Having said that, with all the holiness and meekness, and through the anointing power and spiritual wisdom given to us by the Holy Spirit of Yahweh, we are so delighted to present to all the people and nations the Ten Commandments of Yahweh!

Commandment #1

“I Am Yahweh your Elohim, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other mighty ones before Me” (Exodus 20:2-3; Deuteronomy 5:6-7)

–This commandment is about our loyalty to Yahweh. The Creator of the universe declares He is our Elohim and our Deliverer. He asks us to demonstrate our love for Him by having no other so-called “Gods.” It tells us that we should love, honor and respect our Creator and Heavenly Father so that He alone is the supreme authority in our lives. He alone is the Almighty One, and we should allow nothing to prevent us from serving and obeying Him. As our Creator and Sustainer, He has given us everything, and wants us to acknowledge Him as the source of all good things and instruction in right living.

Commandment #2

“You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, Yahweh your Elohim, Am a jealous El, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments” (Exodus 20:4-5; Deuteronomy 5:8)

–This commandment is about proper worship. Yahweh prohibits the worship of images, of bowing before a carved statue. It tells us that in our worship we must not reduce Him to a likeness of a physical object. To make any representation of Him distorts and limits our perception of what He is really like, and so distorts and damages our relationship with Him. Yahweh is far greater than anything we can see or imagine, and idolatry limits Him in our minds.

Commandment #3

“You shall not take the Name of Yahweh your Elohim in vain, for Yahweh will not hold him guiltless who takes His Name in vain” (Exodus 20:7; Deuteronomy 5:11)

–This is about our reverence to Yahweh. Yahweh instructs us to respect His holy Name and not to use His Name in vain (examples: for iniquity, falsehood, vanity, emptiness). It focuses on showing respect to our Creator. The quality of our relationship with Yahweh depends on the love and regard we have for Him. We are expected to always honor who and what He is, and never disrespect Him in word or action.

Commandment #4

“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of Yahweh your Elohim. In it you shall do no 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 and hallowed it” (Exodus 20:8; Deuteronomy 5:12)

–This commandment is about sanctification and relationship. Yahweh instructs His people to remember the Sabbath and keep it set apart for holy purposes to draw nearer to Him. Yahweh initiated the Sabbath rest at creation, blessing and sanctifying the seventh day (Saturday). It’s clear He expected continued observance. It is a key to a right and close relationship with Yahweh. By keeping His Sabbath, we are reminded every week that He is our Creator and the source of all good things. The Sabbath day is a rest from our normal work, a commanded assembly, a time to meet with others of like mind and to learn more about Yahweh’s way of life through His ministry.

Commandment #5

“Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which Yahweh your Elohim is giving you” (Exodus 20:12; Deuteronomy 5:16)

–This commandment is about respect for parental authority. Yahweh instructs us to show love for our parents by honoring them. Learning to obey this commandment helps children establish a lifetime pattern of respecting proper rules, principles and laws. Honoring parents and others should be a normal, natural habit learned during youth, leading to strong families, and, in turn, to a strong, stable society. This is a commandment that promises long life to those who will abide to it.

Commandment #6

“You shall not murder” (Exodus 20:13; Deuteronomy 5:17)

–This commandment is about respect for human life. Yahweh instructs us to demonstrate love, not hatred, toward others by not committing murder. It tells us that life is a precious gift to be valued and respected. Yahshua Messiah amplified or magnified the meaning of “murder” to include bitter animosity, contempt or hateful hostility toward others. Yahweh wants us to be builders, not destroyers, of good relationships.

Commandment #7

“You shall not commit adultery” (Exodus 20:14; Deuteronomy 5:18)

–This commandment is about purity in our marriage. Yahweh asks us to demonstrate our love to our wife or husband by not committing adultery. It is designed to protect one of Yahweh’s greatest gifts to humanity: the loving marital relationship between a man and a woman (not man to man relationship, not woman to woman relationship, not multiple relationship to man or woman outside of marriage). Obeying this commandment helps prevent the pain and suffering that comes on individuals and societies through broken relationships, broken homes, sexually transmitted diseases, and many other ills.

Commandment #8

“You shall not steal” (Exodus 20:15; Deuteronomy 5:19)

–This commandment is about honesty. Yahweh instructs us not to steal. It shows that we need to respect the rights and needs of others. Our physical and material blessings should never be our primary pursuit in life. We should put giving and serving others ahead of accumulating and lavishing possessions on ourselves.

Commandment #9

“You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor” (Exodus 20:16; Deuteronomy 5:20)

–This commandment is about truthfulness. Yahweh instructs us not to lie or deceive others. It helps us realize that Yahweh expects truth to permeate every facet of our lives. Respectful, loving relationships with others are impossible without truth and honesty being the foundation of our interactions. Yahweh wants us, as His children, to commit ourselves to truth and reflect it in everything we do.

Commandment #10

“You shall not covet your neighbor’s house, you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s” (Exodus 20:17; Deuteronomy 5:21)

–This commandment is about contentment. Yahweh instructs us not to covet anything that belongs to other people, as it can entrap us in even greater sin. Like the other commandments, it is directed toward our relationships. It specifically deals with respecting the property, possessions and spousal relationships of others and with the covetous thoughts that can potentially hurt ourselves and our neighbors. It seeks to quell the desires that tempt us and lead us astray. Rather than being focused on our own wants, Yahweh wants concern for others to be the motivation for our desires.

The Ten Commandments above clearly define the nature and the love of Almighty Yahweh to mankind. It is very disheartening to us that many sincere religious people still claim, or argue, it is no longer valid, even with biblical facts presented to them. The apostle Paul taught about it and defended its validity when he said: “Do we then make void the Law through faith? Certainly not: yea, we establish the Law” (Romans 3:31). The apostle John said this in his epistle: “And hereby we do know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments” (1 John 2:3). Even the Savior Yahshua himself said this: “Think not that I am come to destroy the Law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill” (Matthew 5:17-20). The word fulfill here means to “magnify” or make more “valid,” not to end, the Law! The Ten Commandments are ten wonderful promises to us from Yahweh, our Creator. His Son Yahshua Messiah came to destroy the works of Satan the devil. He sends the Holy Spirit to give us power over sin. Since we live in a world of sin, there has to be a Law that defines sin. That Law is the Ten Commandments, an eternal and universal Law! The Law of Yahweh is perfect when He wrote it on two tablets of stone, and He added “no more” to it, as clearly written in Deuteronomy 5:22. If anyone tells you they have to add more to the Ten Commandments, then you know for sure that person is a liar! And to those people who say the Ten Commandments no longer apply to everyone of us today we have this message to you: Stop blaspheming the Law! Do not let any one stumble on their faith because of your wrong interpretation of the Bible! We pray that you do not play with Yahweh’s Word because, ultimately, you cannot win Him with your ignorance and disobedience! Let the truth set you free!

In closing, it is indeed very sad that some Christians and many religious leaders advocate the Ten Commandments as being “done away,” “wiped out,” or “nailed to the cross.” They are wrong! Please understand that Bible Scriptures are not contradictory. Yahweh cannot lie and contradict himself. The error of tossing out the Old Testament has closed the door to understanding the eternal nature of the Ten Commandments Law of Yahweh. The truth is, if a person doesn’t have a clear understanding of both Old and New Testament texts, it’s easy to miss the context of the writings and arrive at misguided conclusions. Notice even the apostle Peter reminds his hearers that “some of the apostle Paul epistles are hard to understand, which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures” (2 Peter 3:16). The apostle Paul indeed speaks of the “curse of the law” (Galatians 3:13), meaning a curse decreed by the Law. But he does not refer to the Law itself as a curse! Yahshua Messiah did indeed take out of the way something that was nailed to the stake (cross). But that something was the record of our sins or transgressions, not Yahweh’s Law! Keep in mind the Bible speaks about two laws: The great Ten Commandments Law and the law of Moses! The eternal and universal Ten Commandments formed the heart of the covenant law Yahweh gave to Israel, and were observed by the apostles and by the ancient New Testament church. Please don’t forget Yahshua Messiah taught the Law! Yahweh has not changed! Only the people have changed. The Ten Commandments has never changed! And no one ever has the right to change Yahweh’s Law! It already existed before Moses, and it was not, in any ways, limited only to the Jews. The last book of the Bible, Revelation, states: “Blessed are they that do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city” (Revelation 22:14). Therefore, make no mistake about this people! The sacred Ten Commandments are still in effect today, for you and us! We love you all. Shalom, Halleluyah!

  6. My youngest is learning them right now in a church school. It’s so nice seeing kids learn them as it re-teaches you.

I really appreciate your opinion since your articles are completely scripture based and therefore factual.
