The TEN COMMANDMENTS:
1 You shall have no other gods before Me.
2 You shall not make to yourself any graven image.
3 You shall not take the name of the LORD your GOD in vain.
4 Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
5 Honor your father and mother.
6 You shall not kill.
7 You shall not commit adultery.
8 You shall not steal.
9 You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
10 You shall not covet. (Exodus 20:1-17)
If your GOD is not the One True GOD as revealed in His Word, the Holy Scriptures; or if you've loved money, your job, your self (or any other person or thing) more than GOD -- you've broken the First Commandment of GOD, Sovereign Creator of all the heavens and all the earth.
If you've prayed to a statue of Buddha, the Virgin Mary, a "sacred cow" or your "good luck" charm on your gold bracelet -- or "bowed down" to your Corvette or Hummer -- you've broken the Second Commandment of GOD. (Any idol or even just a concept of GOD that is inaccurate is an idol, a violation of the second commandment.)
If you've cussed using GOD's name, spoken the name of the LORD JESUS CHRIST as an expletive -- you've broken the Third Commandment of GOD.
If you've not honored GOD on the one day of the week He declared as your day of rest and worship (whether Saturday or Sunday, depending on your religious affiliation) -- you've broken the Fourth Commandment of GOD.
If you've disrespected or mistreated your parents in any way -- you've broken the fifth Commandment of GOD.
If you've gotten angry at someone without just cause (road rage anyone?) -- you've broken the sixth Commandment of GOD. (JESUS said, "But I say, if you are angry with someone, you are subject to judgment! If you call someone an idiot, you are in danger of being brought before the high council. And if you curse someone, you are in danger of the fires of hell." Matthew 5:22, NLT)
If you've lusted after a woman (or man) who's not your spouse, even without committing the actual physical sexual act; or if you're into pornography -- you've broken the seventh Commandment of GOD. (JESUS said, "Whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart." Matthew 5:28)
If you've "borrowed" someone's property without permission or stolen anything, even if it's only a pen from the office or a pack of gum from the store: you're a thief -- you've broken the eighth Commandment of GOD.
If you've gossiped or lied, even if it's a "white" lie or 99.9% truth, you're a liar -- you've broken the ninth Commandment of GOD.
If you've ever coveted something that didn't belong to you (covet = to long inordinately or unlawfully, to hanker after something forbidden, to wish, long or crave for something, especially the property of another person) -- you've broken the tenth Commandment of GOD.
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. (1 John 1:8)
If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us. (1 John 1:10)
As it is written: "There is none righteous, no, not one." (Romans 3:10; Psalm 14:3)
The Day of Judgment is when GOD's longsuffering and love are perfectly manifested with His holy righteousness and justice. "That Day of Judgment will come," says the Sovereign LORD. "Everything will happen just as I have declared it." (Ezekiel 39:8)
JESUS said, "But all who reject Me and My message will be judged at the Day of Judgment by the truth I have spoken." (John 12:48)
But no, you won't listen. So you are storing up terrible punishment for yourself because of your stubbornness in refusing to turn from your sin. For there is going to come a Day of Judgment when GOD, the just Judge of all the world, will judge all people according to what they have done. (Romans 2:5-6)
The day will surely come when GOD, by JESUS CHRIST, will judge everyone's secret life. (Romans 2:16)
The Day of Judgment is like the Law of Gravity -- you can't see "gravity" itself with the naked eye, but its effects are 100% guaranteed -- whether you believe it or not. If you step off a 250-story skyscraper because you don't believe in the Law of Gravity -- you will be scraped off the sidewalk that caught your free-flight downwards.
Likewise, the Day of Judgment -- whether you believe in it or not -- will come. GOD said so. It is written in His Holy Book. GOD's Word is Truth. It is Revelation already fulfilled and about to be fulfilled -- The LORD Almighty says, "The day of judgment is coming, burning like a furnace. The arrogant and the wicked will be burned up like straw on that day. They will be consumed like a tree--roots and all." (Malachi 4:1)
Get real. Recognize that GOD is a holy and just GOD. You have broken His Ten Commandments -- the Standard by which all mankind will be judged on the coming Day of Judgment -- and you and i will be judged (the unbeliever at the Great White Throne Judgment -- Revelation 20:11-14; the believer at the Bema Judgment).
Repent. See your naked heart the way a holy and righteous GOD sees it -- there are no secrets from GOD. Turn from your sins -- stop being your own god -- and turn to the One True GOD for forgiveness and grace.
For GOD is also Love. He has already provided the means of payment for your sins -- His own blood has redeemed you. He gave His only begotten Son -- CHRIST JESUS -- to be sacrificed on the Cross so that you may be justified in His sight. (John 3:16-18)
Believe in the resurrection of JESUS CHRIST -- it is historical truth -- it is fact. Confess with your mouth that JESUS is LORD, Sovereign King -- GOD the Son. Commit your self to Him... trust Him with your life -- and the Holy SPIRIT will come to live in your body and soul the life of CHRIST. You will become a new creature -- born again in SPIRIT, alive in CHRIST JESUS.
Time is short -- the prophetic signs described in the Bible abound all around us -- just examine world wide events. The latest prophecies concerning Israel were fulfilled in this generation.
Don't sue this messenger or anyone else who comes to you sharing GOD's Word -- the Truth that cannot be denied (though people have tried since Creation). We share only what GOD says in the Bible -- the Truth. We share the Good News out of love for the CHRIST -- JESUS, GOD the Son -- not out of condemnation (for we ourselves were under condemnation), but because we desire that none should perish to eternal condemnation.
For me, it's like this: i see someone lollygagging in the street, with a truck speeding towards him/her. Will i politely ask him to get out of the way...will i take the time to build a relationship with him first before telling him that a truck is about to mow him down? Or will i warn him loudly, "GET OUT OF THE WAY -- A TRUCK IS COMING!"
So i declare and write loudly, "THE HOLY JUDGE IS COMING!"
But just remember that they will have to face GOD, Who will judge everyone, both the living and the dead. (1 Peter 4:5)
