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. (Exodus 24:12 KJV)
During the forty days of fasting, Moses spent his time with God to learn the ways of God for His people. Of course, God gave him the Ten Commandments that address two types of relationship. The first four commandments address our relationship with God (Exodus 20:2-11). It is important for us to have relationship with God, because He created the universe and us. God wants to have personal relationship with each of us. He created the world for us to enjoy the life that He gave us.
Last six commandments are related to our relationships with each others. Remember when God created Adam and gave him all the responsibilities to take care His creation, God felt sorry for the man to be lonely. Genesis 2:18 said, "It is not good that the man should be alone…" Why? It is easily for us to be in depression stage when there would be no one else to talk with or work with. As we see in this verse, God gave Adam a woman, from his rib, to assist him to take care His creation. Before the fall of man in Genesis 3, their jobs were lighted and enjoyed doing jobs. There is so much to say about the first couple chapters in the Book of Genesis, but let's return to the last six of the Ten Commandments, which is concerned with the relationship with one another.
Before the fall of man, God intended for us to have eternal human life. However, the sins entered to the world, God shrunk the human lifespan down into 120 years (Genesis 6:3). For us to have a long life, we have to honor our parents; shall not commit murder, steal, commit adultery, steal, bear false witness, and covet another people's property. Even though God knows that we may not be kept the first ten laws perfectly, He gave us the two laws that summarized all the laws in the Bible--love God and love our people. Love is the powerful for us to have. God knows that we would have difficulty to follow the Ten Comments on a daily basis because the sins issue. Paul said in Romans 3:10-11, "There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God." If you'd say that you obey God 100%, you'd become a liar and God is not with you. There is only one Person, who has kept God's laws perfectly, which is Jesus Christ. That is why Paul said in Philippians 2:5-11, "Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."
Let's forward to what's going on the world today, especially United States of America. I believe the way that U.S. moves would effect the rest of the world. Most of countries are looking to us as role model. We have relationship with Israel to be blessed by God as we continually stay as strong and wealthy nation of the world. Our nation has made much progress to establish relationship with other countries to share common ideas to make better places for people in the world.
Unfortunately, we still struggle with dealing certain issues in our lives. I want to tell you that our country has so many groups that segregates from with the rest of world. That's good! But, on the other hand, it's bad. Even though our country has many diversities of groups, we also try to make competition from others. Right now, many people are pointing their fingers to President Trump for our national issues rather than finding out the real problems and solve them. Since the coronavirus pandemic started throughout the world in this springtime, everybody has been depending on their political leaders to fix the problem. As we see, this global pandemic has not left yet. Over millions people have effected and/or died due to this global pandemic, which it was created by secret governmental scientists. Rather than solving this quickly, political leaders got involved and trying to resolve this by stages slowly. Right now, in our national Capitol, there is civil war going on between two political parties since Donald Trump won the presidential election in November 2016. Why? Sin issues. Many Americans don't want to change from the laws that former President Obama signed to make the law of the land, which it constricts against God's Words and the original U.S. Constitution. Many children have confused their gender identities because of LGBTQ rights and movements. There have been more unborn babies have not chanced to see the world because of the abortion right.
Last three to four weeks have been wild throughout US and rest of world due to racism and security issues. It is not just "Black Lives Matter" problem, because racism is not going away. We can keep protest against the government, but the law will not solve all the problems. This is "Every Lives Matter" problem. The more laws we want to have, the more problems that exist today. Yes, the laws may help us to keep safe, but some people may have another idea to overcome the laws. It's sad that many people spent several days to protest on the death of one man or certain kind of people by police officers and effect throughout the world. Yet, we spend one day of the year to protest against abortion at Washington, DC, even though abortion has been existed since the Old Testament era.
To solve our national and global crises, we need let go our problems to God. We need to surrender our sinful selves to Him and ask forgiveness for our sins. That's the only way to bring the nation and others into peace. Some of us may understand that bringing global crisis is the part of end-time event. God cannot restore the earth back into original without dealing with Satan and his armies. We are the last generation before God would bring final judgement on Earth. He will separate each of us between His people and Satan's--sheep and goat. Are you one of God's people? We just cannot follow riots and fight for our rights. God knows who we are and we belong to Him. If that is not enough, then you just go follow with the crowd of this world and see what would happen.
Are you saved? Are your love ones and friends saved in the grace of God through Jesus Christ? Jesus said, "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms, if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am." (John 14:1-3.)
If you are lukewarm in your relationship with Jesus Christ and want to know Him as your personal Savior and Lord of your life, please consider asking Him to forgive your sins and invite Him into your life. Paul says, "That if you confess with your mouth, `Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believed and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved." (Romans 10:9-10.) If you have done in your private room or workplace, then you need to tell to your friends or love ones about what you have done, so they may rejoice with you and want to have that relationship with Christ in their own life. There are many occults in the world, which do not know the love of God and His great plan for those who believe in Him. As it is written in John 3:16, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
