why did god give the ten commandments?

Joh 1:16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. Joh 1:17 For the law was given by Moses, butgrace and truth came by Jesus Christ. The scriptures are clear, that any man who attempts to be justified by law, has fallen from Grace! A man you thinks himself able to keep the law is a man who is living a lie! The Lord will not lay His Grace upon a lie! He lays His Grace upon those who admit they need His Grace!  (Oct 10, 2012 | post #32)

why did god give the ten commandments?

We are told that we are to leave the first principles of the doctrine of Christ and go on to perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and the doctrine of baptisms and other first principles (Hebrews 6). What would you think of a builder who was everlastingly pulling down his house and putting in fresh foundations? Never look back if you want the power o f God in your life. You will find out that in the measure you have allowed yourself to look back you have missed that which God has for you. The Holy Ghost shows us that we must never look back to the law of sin and death from which we have been delivered. God has brought us into a new order of things, a life of love and liberty in Christ Jesus that is beyond all human comprehension. Many are brought into this new life through the power of the Spirit of God, and then, like the Galatians, who ran well at the beginning, they try to perfect themselves on the lines of legalism. They go back from the life in the Spirit to a life on natural lines. God is not pleased with this, for He has no place for the man who has lost the vision. The only thing to do is to repent. Don¬ít try to cover up anything. If you have been tripped tip on any line, confess it out, and then look to God to bring you to a place of stability of faith where your whole walk will be in the Spirit. - Smith Wigglesworth  (Oct 9, 2012 | post #31)

What is "GODS RIGHTEOUSNESS"

A chain was made to allow a slave to have enough freedom to work, yet still be in bondage. Religion and tradition is satans chain, he has placed certain lies in the church, that act as links in his chain. he need not currupt it all but only needs those few links. A wall here and gate there to keep the people in bondage. Many "christians " can wave their arms and say "look I am free" but they are never led by the Spirit of God, except for an hour or two each week. A "true" Christain is filled and led of the Spirit at all times. they fear not that which is of this world but look to the World to come! A true Christian, walks as Christ walks with love and compassion in their hearts for others, seeking to save that which is lost, not to condemn that which He has saved. A true Christian is confident in Gods power and strength, and puts no confidence in their own ability. The perfect Law of Liberty sets us free from what is natural and brings us into the Eternal Spirit! God Bless- Mitspa  (Oct 7, 2012 | post #15)

why did god give the ten commandments?

Gen 3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: Gen 3:5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. The Lord has set us free from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, by the knowledge of His Righteous Work done upon the tree of The Cross! But the serpent still speaks;"go back to the law"- you shall not surely die" Gal 4:21 Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law? Gal 4:22 For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman. Gal 4:23 But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise. Gal 4:24 Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar. Gal 4:25 For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children. Gal 4:26 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.  (Oct 6, 2012 | post #29)

Rom 2:19 And art confident that thou thyself art a guide of the blind, a light of them which are in darkness, Rom 2:20 An instructor of the foolish, a teacher of babes, which hast the form of knowledge and of the truth in the law. Rom 2:21 Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal? Rom 2:22 Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit sacrilege? Rom 2:23 Thou that makest thy boast of the law, through breaking the law dishonourest thou God? Rom 2:24 For the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles through you, as it is written. How wicked and evil a heart you must have to lay a burden on others, that you can not carry yourself? REPENT of your hypocricy! Unless the Lord come and judge you according to how you judge others!  (Oct 6, 2012 | post #28)

Php 3:3 For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh. Php 3:4 Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more: Php 3:5 Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee; Php 3:6 Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless. Php 3:7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. Php 3:8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, Php 3:9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:  (Oct 5, 2012 | post #14)

Gal 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. Gal 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain. Heb 12:18 For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest, Heb 12:19 And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice they that heard intreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more: Heb 12:20 (For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or thrust through with a dart: Heb 12:21 And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake When will man see that Gods Righteousness can not be touched by the efforts of man? Isa 2:11 The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. Isa 2:12 For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low: Repent of your "dead" works of flesh, works of law. Turn to God and His Righteousness, by faith! For the just shall live by faith!  (Oct 5, 2012 | post #27)

Joh 1:17 (ISV) For while the law was given through Moses, grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. Joh 1:18 No one has ever seen God. The unique God, who is close to the Father's side, has revealed him. That no man can see or know God by the law is clear, even when God gave the law through Moses he told the people" Behold you have seen NO Image" Only as we behold Christ Jesus, apart from the Law, will we be able to know God The Father. Heb 1:2 (ISV) has in these last days spoken to us by a Son whom he appointed to be the heir of everything and through whom he also made the universe. Heb 1:3 He is the reflection of God's glory and the exact likeness of his being, and he holds everything together by his powerful word. After he had provided a cleansing from sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Highest Majesty 2Co 3:15(ISV) Yet even to this day, when Moses is read, a veil covers their hearts. 2Co 3:16 But whenever a person turns to the Lord, the veil is removed. The just shall live by faith!  (Oct 4, 2012 | post #26)

Rom 11:16 For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches. Rom 11:17 And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree; Rom 11:18 Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee. Rom 11:19 Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in. Rom 11:20 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: Rom 11:21 For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. Here we have the warning, of first not boasting as if we had somehow taking the promises made to to jews by our own efforts! But God in His Goodness, graffed us in to Himself, by His Own will and purpose! We also see that "by faith" we are brought into the Kingdom of God. That the Jews were broken off because they sought the Kingdom by the works of the Law, not by faith! For the Just shall live by faith! By faith we stand! The warning God makes to us, that we received Christ and the Spirit by faith. "As ye have received Him, so walk ye in Him!" Gal 3:2 This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Gal 3:3 Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh? Gal 5:4 (KJV) Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace. Gal 5:4 (ASV) Ye are severed from Christ, ye who would be justified by the law; ye are fallen away from grace. Gal 5:4 (ISV) Those of you who are trying to be justified by the law have been cut off from Christ. You have fallen away from grace.  (Oct 3, 2012 | post #25)

Gal 3:11 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is EVIDENT: for, The just shall live by faith. EVIDENT; clear, certain, evident, manifest. Many will go before Him on the Day of judgement, and say Lord did we not keep the Law? He will reply, " It was EVIDENT that you did not! Depart from me you cursed servant!

Pro 23:7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: When a man "believes " right in their mind and heart, they will act according to what they believe! If a "believer " thinks himself a sinner, he will act according to what he believes himself to be. When a "believer " agrees with God and the Spirit within him that God has made him righteous by the blood of Christ. That believer will begin to allow the Spirit of God to control thier behavior. Man fell by knowledge, he is renewed by knowledge. Not earthly knowledge, but by that which is taught by the Holy Spirit. Col 3:10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him: 2Co 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 2Co 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.  (Oct 2, 2012 | post #13)

Heb 9:24 For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: Heb 9:25 Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others; Heb 9:26 For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. Heb 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: Heb 9:28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation. By the Blood of Christ Jesus the law was finished! How wicked it is for those who attempt to continue in the Law after He has paid such a high price? Gal 5:4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.  (Oct 1, 2012 | post #23)

Thou meetest him that rejoiceth and worketh righteousness, those that remember thee in thy ways: behold, thou art wroth; for we have sinned: in those is continuance, and we shall be saved. Isa 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. Isa 64:7 And there is none that calleth upon thy name, that stirreth up himself to take hold of thee: for thou hast hid thy face from us, and hast consumed us, because of our iniquities. Isa 64:8 But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand. Eph 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Eph 2:9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. Eph 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. 2Co 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. Isa 26:2 Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth the truth may enter in. Isa 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Isa 26:4 Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength: How can one walk in peace, trusting in their own strength? How can one fail when they trust in Gods Righteousness? Rom 14:17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.  (Sep 30, 2012 | post #12)

Yes I am not ashamed of the gospel! Rom 1:14 I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the Barbarians; both to the wise, and to the unwise. Rom 1:15 So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also. Rom 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. Rom 1:17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. Gal 1:1 Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;) Gal 1:2 And all the brethren which are with me, unto the churches of Galatia: Gal 1:3 Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ, Gal 1:4 Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father: Gal 1:5 To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. Gal 1:6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Gal 1:7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. Gal 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. Gal 1:9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.  (Sep 29, 2012 | post #11)
