TEN COMMANDMENTS ARE LIKE ONE FOR EVERY TOE OR ONE FOR EVERY FINGER (IF YOU INCLUDE YOUR THUMB AS A FINGER). Walking The Walk And Not Just Talking The Talk Is What The Ten Commandments Are About. Unfortunately, most people do not know where to find the Ten Commandments.

This is what the Bible informs us that God says about those who have been baptized in the Holy Spirit and exercise obedience of faith:
  • “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord: I will put my laws on their hearts, and write them on their minds,” (Hebrews 10:16)
  • And Peter said to them, “Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:38)
The Ten Commandments that need to be understood by every person, which God Himself wrote with His own finger (translated from the Hebrew into English) are here (Exodus 1–17):
  1. And God spoke all these words, saying, “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. “You shall have no other gods before me. (Exodus 20:1–3)
  2. You shall not make for yourself a graven 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 or serve them; for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments. (Exodus 20:4–6)
  3. You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.(Exodus 20:7)
  4. Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work; 10 but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God; in it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your manservant, or your maidservant, or your cattle, or the sojourner who is within your gates; for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day; therefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day and hallowed it.(Exodus 20:8–11)
  5. Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land which the Lord your God gives you.(Exodus 20:12)
  6. You shall not kill.(Exodus 20:13)
  7. You shall not commit adultery. (Exodus 20:14)
  8. You shall not steal. (Exodus 20:15)
  9. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.(Exodus 20:16)
  10. You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his manservant, or his maidservant, or his ox, or his ass, or anything that is your neighbor’s.” (Exodus 20:17)
Unfortunately, few people claiming to be Christians can actually quote the Ten Commandments. Likewise, few there are that understand them. Most people think they are too clever to have to understand The Only Words Written By The Finger Of God.
  • Now to him who is able to strengthen you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery which was kept secret for long ages but is now disclosed and through the prophetic writings is made known to all nations, according to the command of the eternal God, to bring about the obedience of faith—to the only wise God be glory for evermore through Jesus Christ! Amen. (Romans 16:25–27)
May God bless you Brenda Kay Winters. May you discover the riches that are yours in Lord Jesus Christ as you come to understand the depth of the truth that is only to be found in the Ten Commandments. For these are the plumbline that enable people to size up and understand true doctrine; not to mention building a solid relationship with God and those walk in the light as He is in the light.
