The 'Ten Commandments'

Meant To Guide

Genesis 26:5
'Because that Abraham obeyed my voice,
and kept my charge, my commandments,
my statutes, and my laws.
'
Though the
'Chosen Peoples'
were suppose to be
Taught by Religious
leaders to keep
GOD's
commandments, statutes,
and laws as Abraham did do,
even before
God write with His
own finger, the Laws which would
be His written Covenant, the 'Ten
Commandments', which allowed him
to have any need to Sacrifice for Sin,
but Religious leaders instead sought to
Concentrate their efforts upon Teaching
to the Nation of the 'Judgments' of the law
requiring Sacrifice to be Made for Sin to gain
'Forgiveness' from Sin, even at the cost of their
ignoring Scriptural Proof that the LORD did mean
for Israel to have been guided by
GOD's Covenant,
beheld but Ten Commandments' has was recorded in,
***{Exodus 34:28}, where Moses states that the 2 Tables of stone given him by the LORD God was the Covenant 'Ten Commandments', the same 'Commandment' that earlier Moses recorded and told the Nation of in {Exodus 20:1-17}!
***{Exodus 34:28}, where Moses states that the 2 Tables of stone given him by the LORD
God was the Covenant 'Ten Commandments', to which only Ten, Not eleven or more, were Not written on the 2 Tables of stone!
***{Exodus 20:1-17} the 'Commandments recorded by Moses before the LORD's Own writing of the 'Commandments' on 2 Tables of stone, {Exodus 34:28} and which Moses also recorded {Deuteronomy 5:7-21} after the LORD's Own writing of the 'Commandments' on 2 Tables of stone, both are identical!
***{Exodus 20:1-17} the 'Commandments recorded by Moses before the LORD's Own writing of the 'Commandments' on 2 Tables of stone, {Exodus 34:28} and which Moses also recorded {Deuteronomy 5:7-21} after the LORD's Own writing of the 'Commandments' on 2 Tables of stone, both make No mention of Sacrifice being made for Sin!
***{Leviticus} beginning in chapter 1, is where Moses makes Known in great depth, how and what kind of Sacrifices were to be made!
Which if
the Religious
leaders had Not
ignored Teaching
their own Nation of,
to concentrate their
own efforts upon the
Teaching their Nation
to follow the Good that
GOD's written Covenant,
the 'Ten commandments'
of Law beheld, then Israel,
***Would have had No Need to Sacrifice for Sin, because like Abraham {Genesis 26:5}, the Nation would have obeyed GOD's voice, kept His charge, His 'Commandments', His statutes, and His laws!
***Would have had No throne of iniquity in their Nation, for leaders to frame mischief by a law {Psalms 94:20}, because in following the Covenant, the 'Ten Commandments, such things would not have happened in Israel! !
**Would have had, No workers of iniquity in the Nation, to bring forth destruction {Proverbs 10:29}, because in following the Covenant, the 'Ten Commandments, such things would not have happened in Israel!
***Would have had No vile person in their Nation, who would speak villainy, to work iniquity, to practice hypocrisy, to utter error against the LORD, to make empty the soul of the hungry, or even have the drink of the thirsty fail {Isaiah 32:6}, because in following the Covenant, the 'Ten Commandments, such things would not have happened in Israel! !
***Would have had No Individuals in their Nation, whose hands would be defiled with blood, Nor fingers with iniquity; nor lips that spoke lies, Nor tongue mutter the perverseness because of Sacrifice-{Isaiah 59:3}, because in following the Covenant, the 'Ten Commandments, such things would not have happened in Israel!
***Would have had No Individuals in their Nation, whose feet would run to evil, or make haste to shed innocent blood, or have thoughts of iniquity, whose paths are but wasting and destruction {Isaiah 59:7}, because in following the Covenant, the 'Ten Commandments, such things would not have happened in Israel!
***Would have had No Individuals in their Nation, that would Need to acknowledge their iniquity, or transgressed against the LORD
God, by Not obeying the LORD GOD's voice {Jeremiah 3:13}, because in following the Covenant, the 'Ten Commandments, No iniquity, or transgressions against the LORD God, Nor disobeying the LORD GOD's voice would exist in Israel!
***Would have had No Individuals in their Nation, that would deceive their neighbor, who would Not speak the truth, or taught their tongue to speak lies, Nor wist any time seeking to commit iniquity {Jeremiah 9:5}, because in following the Covenant, the 'Ten Commandments, No Individual in the Nation would have deceived their neighbor with untruthfulness, or lies!
***Would have had No Individuals in their Nation, that would have to cry out that they were afflicted by
God for their iniquity {Jeremiah 30:15}, because in following the Covenant, the 'Ten Commandments, there would exist No iniquity, or affliction in Israel!
***Would have had No Individuals in the Nation, that would Need to be cleansed, or pardoned from iniquity, or sin against
God {Jeremiah 33:8}, simply because in following the Covenant, the 'Ten Commandments, there would exist No iniquity, or sin to be cleansed, or pardoned from in Israel!
***Would have had No Individuals in their Nation that would build a town with blood, or established a city by iniquity {Habakkuk 2:12}... because following the Covenant, the 'Ten Commandments, would have but have produced Individuals without iniquity, and would Not build a town with blood, or established a city by iniquity!
***Would have had No Need for the LORD, to visit the transgressions of Israel (taking upon the sins of Israel} upon him (the Holy One), and the altars of Bethel (become Sacrificed for sin), and the horns of the altar shall be cut off, (to eliminate the power of Sacrifice), and fall to the ground (from things related to heaven {Amos 3:14},because in following the Covenant, the 'Ten Commandments, there would be No iniquity or sin existing within the Nation that would have needed to be Sacrifice!
Exodus 20:1-17
'And God spake all these words, saying,
I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
Thou shalt not kill.
Thou shalt not commit adultery.
Thou shalt not steal.
Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's.

And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.
Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain: for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee.
Six days thou shalt labour, and do all thy work:
But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thine ox, nor thine ass, nor any of thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; that thy manservant and thy maidservant may rest as well as thou.
And remember that thou wast a servant in the land of Egypt, and that the LORD thy God brought thee out thence through a mighty hand and by a stretched out arm: therefore the LORD thy God commanded thee to keep the sabbath day.
Honour thy father and thy mother, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
Thou shalt not kill.
Neither shalt thou commit adultery.

Exodus 24:12
'And the LORD said unto Moses,
Come up to me into the mount, and be there:
and I will give thee tables of stone,
and a law, and commandments which I have written;
that thou mayest teach them.
'
Though the
'Chosen Peoples'
were suppose to be
Taught by Religious
leaders to keep
GOD's
Law, in their Blindness
they did Not Teach to the
Nation of after the death of
Moses {Deuteronomy 31:27},
the efforts of Religious leaders to
keep the Nation bound to Sacrifice
to which Israel followed many years,
and that
God sought to end through His
Covenant, the 'Ten Commandments', so
too did the Religious leaders seek to justify
their actions {Isaiah 24:5}, through the usage
of {Exodus 24:12}, where the LORD said unto
Moses, Come up to me into the mount, where He
would give to Moses tables of stone, and a law, and
commandments to which He'd written; to teach Israel,
yet chose to ignore that the LORD said a Law, and did
Not use Laws, because His usage of a Law, related to a
single thing which He Personally did do, and had required,
and Laws did relate to the various things which He did make
Known in His Law, and has being Laws which He had required!
Which in
Blindness
the Religious
Leaders chose to
lead the Nation to
View and follow the
Laws of Sacrifice, has
a Law that the Lord had
Personally written and had
required {Psalms 40:6}, and
sought to Teach the Nation of
an obligation unto
God and the
Law through Blood-Sacrifices that
would offer them 'Forgiveness' from
Sin, rather than more deeply Teachings
the 'Peoples' to look at having a greater
obligation to the 'Ten Commandments'
that would have 'Overcome'
Sin, so that their
Need for Sacrifice that continued to remember
their iniquity's {Ezekiel 21:24}, to which in their
continuance of Sin and Sacrifice, many in the Nation
would become led by such things, to even believe that,
***They can distort the things of GOD's Good, because He is but A 'Spirit' in Heaven, whom follows a different form of Good, that has little, or No relationship to Good that their own Physical world does relate to!
***They can undertake
Sin, believing that they can possibly Hide such from GOD, because He is in Heaven and Not there to Know what they are doing!
***
GOD is Not Fully aware of what Sin does, because He is but A 'Spirit' Whom is in Heaven where Sin has never occurred, (Ignoring Satan's own Sin undertaken in Heaven to Persuade some Angels to follow him into Perdition), and somehow Not Fully aware of the Sin which they put-up with, which seeks to destroy their immediate Physical Being & surrounding!
***
GOD does Not Fully understand Sin, or the Temptations of Sin surrounding themselves, simply because He is in Heaven, and Not having to face Sin and its Temptations as they are Physically faced with!
***
GOD does Not Fully understand the Temptations of Sin surrounding themselves, simply because He is A Sin in Heaven, and does Not have to face Sin and its Temptations as they are Physically faced with!
***They can undertaking some
Sin, believing that they can possibly Hide such from GOD, because He is in Heaven and Not there to Know what they are doing!
***They are Not Fully Responsible for things of
Sin surrounding themselves, because GOD whom is in Heaven, has never experienced the same temptations by Sin, or the Glory it offers, as Physically!
***They can distort the things of
GOD, because He is but A 'Spirit' and cares less for their distortion, than the Sin which Physically is produced!
***They can seek to make a Physical Sacrifice's for the 'Forgiveness' of
Sin and because GOD accepts their Sacrifice for Sin from Heaven, that they can continue to Sin with Little, or No regard for what their continued Sin does have upon themselves, their Loved ones, their surrounding, their Planet, Nor the other Individuals upon their Planet!
***They can seek to make a Physical Sacrifice's for the 'Forgiveness' of
Sin, and because GOD is but A 'Spirit' in Heaven whom because He is Not Physical, that he somehow cares little for having Mercy upon the creatures that are Sacrificed, Nor how those creatures are Sacrificed!
***They can seek to continued
Sin through a Sacrifice for sin, yet have No responsibility for 'Repentance' of their continued Sin upon the Planet, as GOD whom is in Heaven has nothing better to do than to continually spend time accepting their continued Sacrifice for Sin, and their continued Sin! because GOD is but A 'Spirit' in Heaven whom because He is Not Physical, that he somehow cares little for having Mercy upon the creatures that are Sacrificed, Nor how those creatures are Sacrificed!
***They can seek to continued
Sin through a Sacrifice for sin, yet have No responsibility for 'Repentance' from the next Sin they participate in, which needs a New Sacrifice to be made to satisfy the 'Repentance' which allow 'Forgiveness' to take effect Spiritually & Physically!
***They can seek to Gain for themselves Eternal Living Life from
GOD in Heaven, yet continue to Blindly accept, accord, or follow undertakings of Sin, that proves Physical destruction upon their Planet!
***They do seek to Blindly consider that their own
Sin, is considered less important to GOD than the Gentile nations, because of their own Specialty to GOD and His Planned Working amongst themselves!
***
De 31:27---'For I know thy rebellion, and thy stiff neck: behold, while I am yet alive with you this day, ye have been rebellious against the LORD; and how much more after my death?' ***Ps 40:6---'Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required.' ***Isaiah 24:5---'The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.' ***Ezekiel 21:24---'Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye have made your iniquity to be remembered, in that your transgressions are discovered, so that in all your doings your sins do appear; because, I say, that ye are come to remembrance, ye shall be taken with the hand.'

'For the LORD'S portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance.
He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye.
As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings:
So the LORD alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him.
He made him ride on the high places of the earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him to suck honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock;
Butter of kine, and milk of sheep, with fat of lambs, and rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats, with the fat of kidneys of wheat; and thou didst drink the pure blood of the grape.

In the
Choosing

too did
God do
all the things that
He could possibly do
{Isaiah 5:4} in 'Spirit' to
show and Teach Israel that
He Is their LORD &
God, an
Only
God, & One God of Good,
Whom set the 'Image' of His Good
in a covenant of 'Ten Commandments'
{Exodus 34:28}, through which He'd use
to call His 'Peoples in righteousness, so as
to also become used by
God, for a light of the
Gentiles {Isaiah 42:6}, yet in that Blindness of
the 'Peoples' towards their own desire to continue
to Sacrifice as for many years they did do, and the
Blind desire upon Moses death {Deuteronomy 31:29}
by Religious leaders who were suppose to be watchmen
{Isaiah 59:10} over Israel, yet chose to have Israel serve
God with Sacrifice for Sin to attain a Righteousness, rather
than serving
God with the Righteousness beheld in His Given
covenant, the Ten Commandments', to which Nations 'Peoplesí did
easily become led by Religious leaders to do because of their own
previous passions to make Sacrifice, and which also did become the
cause for the Nations 'Peoples to err {Isaiah 9:16}, in the following of
a Righteousness similarly as the heathen Nations did lay claim to, and
to lack the Righteousness of
God to Truly understand Scripture in depth,
***Such as in {Isaiah 9:6}, where thy ignore, or explain away that God distinctly states that He will cause to be born in their Nation, a child who will be God's Given Son, in Whom Not only will His Heavenly government be upon His shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, but most importantly be called The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace, which should have been a red-flag for those Religious leaders to realize that the LORD God would Create a Human 'Way' for Himself to Physically 'visit' their Nation, as well as Messiah being the LORD Physically 'visiting' them!
***Such as in {Genesis 17:16-17}, where the LORD caused for the miracle of Moses wife Sarah to Physically have the child Isaac when she was at the age of 93, in who He would also establish His covenant with {Genesis 17:21}, which should have been a red-flag for those Religious leaders to realize that the LORD
God could indeed Physically cause to be born in their Nation, a child who will be God's Given Son, in Whom Not only will His Heavenly government be upon His shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, but most importantly be called The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace,
***Such as in {Isaiah 29:13}, where
God does Make Known why He will 'Visit' them (in a Physical 'Way'), as though He'd Made Known and spoken to them in 'Spirit' {Deuteronomy 32:20}, that it had Not been enough for them, as they draw near God with their mouth, and with their lips do honor but, but have removed their heart far from Him, and their fear toward God is taught by the Physical precept of men which they could see, which should have been a red-flag for those Religious leaders, who were sighting so many Individuals claiming that the Loved God and His Good, yet only sought to prove their degree of Love for Him through continual Sacrifice, rather than overcoming Sin, so as they would Not to have to Sacrifice!
***Such as in {Jeremiah 23:2}, where the LORD Makes Known that The Religious leaders have Not Truly feed His 'Chosen people', which has cause for many members of the Nation {flock} to be scattered (to other Religions), or of the LORD
God's Plans {I will} to 'Visit' their the evil of their doings, which should have been a red-flag for those Religious leaders who were ignoring Scriptures, or those who sought to his in their own lack of Faith Blinded them unto Scripture, or for those who felt that some Scripture did Not accord their own devised views, or their own immediate glories in the Nation, which should have been a red-flag for those Religious leaders who were ignoring the growths of various other religions in their Nation!
***Such as in {Ezekiel 24:14}, where
God did Make Known that because He has told them of His 'Visit' them (in a Physical 'Way') within Scripture, and that even though He Knows of the Nations own Blindness had sought to view His 'Visit' as coming to pass in a different 'Way', that He will Fulfill His 'Visit' (in a Physical 'Way'), and will Not change His Mind, as they would prefer for the LORD to 'Visit' their Nation according to their own views, to which when the Heathen will learn from, to Judge what their Nation own actions!

GOD within
Scriptures concerning being
Truthful and forthcoming in all
the things that the say, or do, so
too had Religious leaders ignored
the very things they taught unto the
Nation through deceptions that sought
to hide from Nations 'Peoples' eyes, that
there were many things that
God had said
in Scriptures, that they had Not Taught to the
Nation, yet had also chosen to continue as their
own Teachers did do, in Not Teaching to Israel of,
***Because if Truly done, it would but open the 'Peoples' of Israel's eyes to the depth of Blindness that the Religious Leaders before them Truly had, and that the were simply continuing in concerning Scripture!
***Because if Truly done, it would but open the 'Peoples' of Israel's eyes to the depth of rejection of things that
God had done and Made Known in Scripture to the Nation, to free Israel from Sin (and Sacrifice), that the Religious Leaders before them Truly undertook, and that the were simply continuing to undertake concerning Scripture!
***Because if Truly done, it would but open the 'Peoples' of Israel's eyes to the depth of imagination & lies that that the Religious Leaders before them had devised concerning the LORD's Given records in Scripture, that the were simply continuing to Teach the Nation concerning Scripture!
***Because if Truly done, it would but open the 'Peoples' of Israel's eyes to the actual inability's of the Religious Leaders before them to have actually desired to understand Scripture, and that the were simply continuing in desire to Not understand in Scripture!
***Because if Truly done, it would but open the 'Peoples' of Israel's eyes to the how much had Not been made Know to Israel by the Religious Leaders before them and that the were simply continuing to Not make Known to their Nation!
***Because if Truly done, it would open the Religious Leaders of ancient times to deep Scrutiny, as well as themselves as Religious Leaders, in continuing to teach the same things that the ancient Religious Leaders taught, which had been used to cause Israel so much Blindness, as well as had prevented Israel from Gaining the Blessings from the LORD
God, which He had intended for the Nations 'Peoples' to Truly See and have!
***Because if Truly done, it would open Israel to scrutiny by the Heathen Nations who seek to disavow the
God of Israel, that seek to disavow Israel's actual Heritage to God, that seek to use Israel's shortcoming (even though the heathens have had far more shortcomings), to disavow Israel own loyalty & Love for God!
A Deceptions
which Israel own
'Peoples' did allow
themselves become
led by the Religious
leaders to follow, due
to their own inability to
have deep access to the
things being Taught them
of Scripture by a Religious
leader, thus their own Nation
was force to rely upon the mercy
and Truth of that Religious leader!
Jeremiah 14:14-16
'Then The LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.' 'Therefore thus saith The LORD concerning the prophets that prophesy in my name, and I sent them not, yet they say, Sword and famine shall not be in this land; By sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed.' 'And the people to whom they prophesy shall be cast out in the streets of Jerusalem because of the famine and the sword; and they shall have none to bury them, them, their wives, nor their sons, nor their daughters: for I will pour their wickedness upon them.'

Though the
'Chosen Peoples'
were suppose to be
Taught by Religious
leaders of what
God's
Scriptures did tell their
Nation of the things which
God had Made Known in the
Scriptures of the things which
He'd meant Israel's 'Peoples' to
follow and be, so too did Religious
Leaders choose to Interpret many
things written in Scriptures after their
own hearts and eyes, and Not to Truly
seek deeper guidance through
God and
His Own Good, to Interpret the Scriptures
has
God had meant, which would lead those
Religious leaders to ignore & distort the view
of Scriptures, and Not tell, Nor explaining unto
the Nation in full, those Scripture, that would of
caused Individuals to become aware & question
the things that Religious leaders had said, or had
led the Nation to follow, or believe about the their
Trust in the Religious leadership though distorting
their Teachings Of Israel's Given 'Commandments',
***Such as in Exodus 34:28} where GOD Gave to Moses two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God {Exodus 31:18}-{Exodus 34:28}, which after Moses Death {Deuteronomy 34:5}, and without Truly making Known to Israel, that the Religious leaders chose guide the Nation in Sacrifice, to serve God with Death through Sacrifice {Isaiah 28:15}, and by doing so also Served the LORD God with continual iniquity {Isaiah 43:24}, and to which they chose Moses words in {Exodus 24:8} written by Moses as part of the Judgments' to form a way by which to legitimize their guidance of the Nation in Sacrifice through considering when he said {Behold the blood of the covenant}, therefore Sacrifice was equal in Covenant, to the 'Ten Commandments', even though the Knew that there were but 'Ten Commandments', Not eleven!
***Such as in {Exodus Chapters 20-21-24}
God told to Moses of those 'Judgments' {Exodus 21:1} which mostly Made-up of those things that GOD Knows will if Followed, would enhance the Personal, or Communal actions & inter-actions of His 'Chosen Peoples' as a Nation unto GOD, to which Moses Wrote down {Exodus 24:4}!
***Such as in {Exodus Chapters 25-28} where
God led Moses to write down 'Judgments' which were Given & written to Give the 'Chosen Peoples' direction {kept my charge} in mainly how to construct the building of a tabernacle for their Religious undertakings as a Nation unto the LORD GOD !
***Such as in {Exodus Chapter 29} where
God led Moses to write down 'Judgments' which were Given & written mainly to Give the 'Chosen Peoples' direction {kept my charge} in mainly anointing the alter & sanctifying the tabernacle!
***Such as in {Exodus Chapter 30} where
God led Moses to write down 'Judgments' which were Given & written mainly to Give the 'Chosen Peoples' direction {kept my charge} in mainly tabernacle cleanliness!
[And Intertwining]
***Scripture concerning the GOD's Statutes with the Law & The 'Commandment' to the degree, that GOD's Good often became overlooked, or of a Secondary Importance!
***Scripture concerning
GOD's Law, which was Given to distinguish His Good after it had became corrupted by Sin, with the 'Commandment' which were Given to distinguish His Good before it had became corrupted by Sin to the degree, that GOD's Good often became overlooked, or of a Secondary Importance!
***Scripture concerning the 'Commandments' which were Given to distinguish His Good, before it had became corrupted by
Sin, with the Law which was Given to distinguish His Good after it had became corrupted by Sin to the degree, that GOD's Good often became overlooked, or of a Secondary Importance!
[And Overlooking]
***That the 'Commandments' and the Law were both Statutes, simply because they were mandated!
***That the Law which was Given to Moses by
GOD , was Given to distinguish His Good, after it had became corrupted by Sin!
***That the Commandments' that were Given to Moses by
GOD , were Given to distinguish His Good, before it had became corrupted by Sin!
[And Seeking To Teach]
***That there was No difference between The LORD God's 'Commandments' of Law which were Personally written by the finger of GOD , and the Commandments of Law which GOD used Moses hand to write!
***That the Statutes of Commanded Law which
GOD used Moses hand to write, beheld the same Sin & Power, as The LORD God's 'Commandments' of Law that were Personally written by the finger of GOD !
[And Using Scripture]
to make Individuals
more aware of their
legalities of Sacrifice
in the Keeping of Law
more than understanding,
***The Spiritual application of GOD's Good, that the Law shown themselves provided!
***Understanding the Knowledge of
GOD's Good that provides the Law with its Power!
***Understanding the '
Spirit' of GOD that made Known the law to themselves!
***Understanding the Spiritual meaning & direction of
GOD's Knowledge of Good Given themselves, within the Law!
***Understanding the Spiritual application of
GOD's Knowledge of Good shown themselves, within the Law!
***Understanding the Spiritual meaning & direction of
GOD's Good manifested, within the Law!
***Understanding the actuality of their own Given Mercy & Love by
GOD, which was reflected by the 'Spirit' of GOD's Good in His Law, that was shown forth to them!
***Understanding that without
GOD's Good applied to the Law, that the Law cannot prevent Individuals from having to suffer loss!
***Understanding that The LORD
God's Law was put into place has the Standard for helping them to Judge Right from wrong, and Judgment was what they did enact for themselves to face, and GOD to bring forth when they chose Sin over Good!
[Rather Than]
***Realizing that it was the strength of Faith of Individuals within their Nation unto GOD and the unseen things of GOD Good, that supported His Faith in them as A 'Chosen Peoples'!
***Realizing that it was the strength of the Love of
GOD, and the unseen things of GOD's Good, that caused GOD to Love them enough has His 'Chosen Peoples'!
***Realizing that it was the willingness of Individuals within their Nation, to sight & follow the
GOD's Good beheld in the 'Commandments', which validated and gave Power unto the Law, that made them Special to GOD as His 'Chosen Peoples'!
[Which But Caused]
***Individuals to understand GOD and His Good more upon legalistic pathways that did overlook, or even 'omit the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith', to bind Individuals through Fear unto the law to the extent, that many Individuals ability's to understand the Love GOD and His Glory of Good became hampered!
***Individuals to understand the actuality of the Law and their own continued weaknesses towards
Sin, did but 'Chain' them to Physical obligation & Fear, rather than applying GOD's Good to His Law in the same Mercy and Love that had been shown to themselves by GOD!
***Individuals to follow their views & teaching of
GOD and His Good upon legalistic pathways that sought to 'chain' Individuals to the law to the extent that many Individuals ended-up persuaded to view their own satisfying the Law through Sacrifice as important, or even more important than seeking satisfy GOD through the Good which GOD intended the Law to provide, which many 'Chosen Peoples' ended-up hampering their own ability's to Truly seek to desire to view the depths of their own Sin, or feel less of a need to deeply understand and follow the Glory of GOD's Good enough, to Fully reject the Sin which they but continued to make Sacrifice for!
***Individuals to attach their view of
GOD and His Good to Political like views & values, that are often are willing to satisfy Physical importance through ignoring the Spiritual Importance of GOD and His Glory of Good enough, to be willing to hamper their own actual shone forth undertaking of Good, through distortions of GOD's Good!
***Individuals to attach their own Pride in the 'Chosen' Nation's own keeping of
GOD's Law, that they could Not understand Scripture, Nor sight the Importance of GOD's 'Visitation' to Fulfill the Law!
Distortions
which Israel own
'Peoples' did allow
themselves to be led
led by their Religious
leaders to follow, due to
their own previous passions
and attachments to Sacrifice!

Genesis 26:5---'Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.' ***Exodus 24:4---'And Moses wrote all the words of the LORD, and rose up early in the morning, and builded an altar under the hill, and twelve pillars, according to the twelve tribes of Israel.' ***Exodus 24:8---'And Moses took the blood, and sprinkled it on the people, and said, Behold the blood of the covenant, which the LORD hath made with you concerning all these words.' ***Exodus 31:18---'And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God.' ***Exodus 34:28---'And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments.' ***Deuteronomy 34:5---'So Moses the servant of the LORD died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the LORD.' ***Isaiah 43:24---'Thou hast bought me no sweet cane with money, neither hast thou filled me with the fat of thy sacrifices: but thou hast made me to serve with thy sins, thou hast wearied me with thine iniquities.' ***Isaiah 28:15---'Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:'

False Prophets

Jeremiah 5:31
'The prophets prophesy falsely,
and the priests bear rule by their means;
and my people love to have it so:
and what will ye do in the end thereof?
'
Though God
used Prophets
to make Known to
Israel of those Good
things which He would
bring upon their Nation
so too did He use Prophets
that He Chose, to Make their
Nation aware and warned of the
incorrect Pathways of
Sin to which
He had Not Taught the Nation, that
the 'Peoples' were following because,
***The Religious leaders had devised and held ties with Prophets who like they, did hold incorrect views of the things which the LORD's Scriptures actually Made Known, which they were heartily Teaching to their Nation of 'Chosen Peoples'-{Jeremiah 5:31}!
***The Religious leaders had chosen to listen, and allowed the Nation to listen to Prophets, whose words agreed with their own devised incorrect views and interpretation of Scripture, which they then would also heartily Teach to their Nation of 'Chosen Peoples'!
***The Religious leaders had chosen to listen to Prophets, who though they Knew had lied about speaking to the LORD, but because the Prophecies they made agreeded with their own incorrect views and interpretation of Scripture, they allowed them to be Taught to Israel {Jeremiah 23:21}
***The Religious leaders had chosen to listen to Prophets, who they Knew did prophesy lies in
God's name, saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed, but because their Prophecies and dreams did agreed with their own incorrect views and interpretation of Scripture, they allowed them to be Taught to Israel {Jeremiah 23:25}
***The Religious leaders had chosen to Not listen to, Nor have any desire to let the 'Peoples' hear {Jeremiah 35:15} the things which though being sent by
God, and did Not paint a picture of the Religious leaders incorrect interpretations, views, and Teachings!
***The Religious leaders would even go to extents of having put to death Prophets {Ezekiel 34:3}, though their being sent by
God, to testify, and warn them about their incorrect interpretations, views, and Teachings of Scripture!
***The Religious leaders would even go to extents of having put to death Prophets {Ezekiel 34:3}, though their being sent by
God, to see what their incorrect interpretations, views, and Teachings in Scripture, was doing and would do to Israel!
***The Religious leaders would allow Prophets who reinforced the Laws of Sacrifice which they had caused the Nation to serve
God with, which but caused Israel to walk after things that do not profit, like the heathen did {Jeremiah 2:8}!
False Prophets
which Israel own
'Peoples' did allow
themselves to be led
by False Prophets and
the Religious leaders to
follow, their own previous
passions and attachments to
Sacrifice, that discovered Not
their iniquity, to turn away their
captivity; but have seen for them
false burdens & causes of banishment!
Lamentations 2:14
'Thy prophets have seen vain and foolish things for thee:
and they have not discovered thine iniquity,
to turn away thy captivity; but have seen for thee
false burdens and causes of banishment.
'
***Jeremiah 2:8---'The priests said not, Where is the LORD? and they that handle the law knew me not: the pastors also transgressed against me, and the prophets prophesied by Baal, and walked after things that do not profit.' ***Jeremiah 23:21---'I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied.' ***Jeremiah 23:25---'I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies in my name, saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed.' ***Jeremiah 35:15---'I have sent also unto you all my servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them, saying, Return ye now every man from his evil way, and amend your doings, and go not after other gods to serve them, and ye shall dwell in the land which I have given to you and to your fathers: but ye have not inclined your ear, nor hearkened unto me.' ***Ezekiel 34:3---'Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill them that are fed: but ye feed not the flock.'

Hindering

Jeremiah 8:15
'We looked for peace, but no good came;
and for a time of health, and behold trouble!
'
Jeremiah 5:25
'Your iniquities have turned away these things,
and your sins have withholden good things from you.
'
Though
the Lord
had made it
Known through
Jeremiah, that the
Children of Israel had
looked for peace, but no
good came; and for a time
of health, and did but behold
trouble {Jeremiah 8:15}, so too
did He also state that the reason
why such Blessings had Not occurred,
***Was because their own iniquities had Not turned away these things, and their Sins had withholden good things from Israel-{Jeremiah 5:25}!
***Was because the prophets which agreed with the Religious leaders own Teachings, had but seen vain and foolish things for Israel to hear, which had not discovered their iniquity beheld in Sacrifice which the LORD not caused them to serve Him with {Isaiah 43:23}, because they did Not turn away their captivity, but only led them to follow false burdens and causes of banishment-{Lamentations 2:14}!
***Was because Israel was led and chose to follow Sacrifice, which did but cause the LORD to see in Israel continually committing iniquity while his serving Israel {Isaiah 43:24} to Fulfill His 'Promises, which if Israel had chosen to follow the old paths {Jeremiah 6:16} of
God's Covenant, the Ten Commandments' {Exodus 34:28}, that God intended to turn away Israel's captivity, false burdens and causes of banishment-{Lamentations 2:14}!
***Was because Israel was led and chose to follow and have their iniquity remembered {Ezekiel 21:24} through continual Sacrifice instead of following old paths {Jeremiah 6:16} of
God's Covenant, the Ten Commandments' {Exodus 34:28}, which is the good way, to walk therein, to find rest for their 'Soul'-{Jeremiah 6:16}!
Upon which
in their Blind
desire to choose
to remain involved
in making a Sacrifice
for
Sin, to keep Iniquity
alive {Nehemiah 4:4}, so
too did the Religious leaders
of Israel Not desire to believe
that the Nations own continuing to
Sacrifice did allow
Sin to continue to
become remembered {Ezekiel 21:24},
and Hinder the Nations Gain of greater
Blessings from the LORD

Gives rain, both the former and the latter, who
