Who Lives By The 10 Commandments?

Who lives by the 10 commandments__canva.

Would you like to be judged for any of the ten commandments?

Because space is limited, I get right to the point. We hear people say they keep the 10 commandments (Exodus 20). I always ask, “Can I show you that you do not keep them?” Upon agreeing to look at each commandment, I asked which one they had kept. I wasn’t surprised when they said they had broken stolen things and covet what other people have. Then, I would point out why I do not keep any of the laws of the Old Testament. Listen to the consequences for breaking of any of the commandments, if they were in effect today.

Would you like to be judged for any of the ten commandments? You read Bible verses of the penalty for breaking any of the laws of Moses. No one can stand before God and say, “I have kept the ten commandments!!!!” Jesus was the only man on earth who kept the commandments. Read the verses and penalty for breaking them.
1. No other gods before me
    Exo 22:20
2. No graven images —–––- DEATH
    Exo 22:20

4. Keep the Sabbath day —– DEATH

5. Honor thy parents —––- DEATH
    Lev 20:9
6. Not murder —–––––– DEATH
    Lev 24:17
7. Not commit adultery —-—– DEATH
    Lev 20:10
8. Not steal —--—-—––- DEATH
    Exo 21:16
9. Be a false witness —––- DEATH

I cannot keep the ten commandments, but THANKS to God, I have been saved by the blood of Christ and given reprieve from the law of sin and death (Romans 8:2). My sins were a death sentence but I accepted the free gift of God by obeying His Son.

Romans 6:23 – “The wages of sin is death, but the free Gift of God is eternal life through His Son Jesus Christ.” Jesus brought over from the Old Law into His New Law what could not be changed (Heb 12:25-27). Nine of the ten commandments are given, but the fourth commandment was not brought over, because of Jesus giving us a new law and a new day. God gave the law to Israel and to no one else.

Exodus 31:17- “The Sabbath Day will be a sign between Me and the Israelites forever…” The word “Sabbath” does not occur in the book of Genesis. All of the Old Testament was nailed to the cross (Col 2:14). Those who believed in keeping the ten commandments are glad. No Sabbath day required in New Testament (Colossians 2:16). Christians meet on the first day of the week to commemorate Jesus’ death and resurrection (Acts 20:7; 1 Cor 11:23-34; 16:2).
