The Ten Commandments: Thou Shalt Not Covet…
Topic: Laws of God

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. (Exodus 20:17 KJV)

 

Even though Paul said we can covet earnestly the best gifts (I Corinthians 12:31), we should not desire anything that is not belong to us. It is sad that we see the people rushed into stores to get gifts for their children before anybody grabbed the toys during the Black Friday. It is good enough to buy gifts for my family after the Black Friday and Cyber Monday would end and before the week of rushed holiday shopping week.

 

The word “covet” has both positive and negative effects. First meaning of its word is “to desire earnestly or pursue.” Remember when God asked Solomon what he’d like to have in his life. Solomon could ask God for anything like genie of the lamp. But he didn’t. Instead, he asked God for wisdom, so he can rule the kingdom right way, not for himself, but for God. God established the land of Israel, starting with Abraham. Even today, the land is belonging to God. He started plowing His seeds in that land. Nobody, even President Obama, can give the land of Israel to Palestine or ungodly nation. Genesis 12:3 said, “And I [God] will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”

Second part of its definition is “to be heated or to boil with envy, hatred, anger.” This has to go with Exodus 20:17. Some people would get jealous easy when the other person would have better things. Especially, children can’t get control him/herself when he/she would see better toys with other students. We need to control ourselves when we’d see better things. It is not good for us to do childish thing.

We need to covet things earnestly—not only for ourselves, but for God’s kingdom. Jesus said in Matthew 6:33, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Are you coveting things earnestly? Lear from what King Solomon did before he went down to the drain.

The Ten Commandments: Thou Shalt Not Bear False Witness
Topic: Laws of God

Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour. (Exodus 20:16 KJV)

 

As we are getting ready to close this series on the Ten Commandment, the last two are focused on our relationship with neighbors or someone close to us that is outside our families. Our focus today is on the ninth commandment: Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

 

For me, I don’t like to watch court TV programs. The reason: There are too many disagreements between the two oppositions and the judge. They are not telling the truth. Instead, they tell some fables to the judge and the judge would decide who’s telling the truth.

 

We can see this act from anywhere, even in the church. Let’s read what Paul said to Timothy (I Timothy 4:1-3), “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.” We see that some preachers teach the gospel that is out of context in the Holy Bible. For example, Peter Popoff is selling the holy water or holy prayer cloth for certain amount. If the water is holy, where did he get it from and why he is selling to us? This and more pastors don’t teach the truth; instead, they are seeking for money.

 

We are supposed to be witnesses to draw people into God and not for our needs. The goal of this ministry is this: And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations… (Matthew 24:14). I don’t need your money to share the truth of God. It is ashamed for ministers to use the merchandise and fable methods to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Jesus said in Matthew 5:16, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”

 

Is your light on for you to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ to people, who haven’t heard the gospel? Are you a true witness for Jesus Christ or just pretending for you could have some money? Choice is yours.

Ten Commandments: Thou Shalt Not Steal
Topic: Laws of God

Thou shalt not steal. (Exodus 20:15 KJV)

 

Even though this week is a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, I’d like to do differently. Most of us may hear the sermon of the first Christmas during this time of the year, even though we can’t approve that there was ones during the early church era. But this is a time for us to share the love and message of God to others. Jesus didn’t just come to the earth to die for our sins, but to establish His relationship with each of us. He is the Emmanuel (Matthew 1:23)—God with us. “…his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6).” Even though the world is going to the wrong direction, God is waiting for us to show the right way to live life. We can count on God to show us the path of life.

 

We mostly listen to the news that man steals some stuff that is not his. I don’t care who does this evil act, it is an act of sin against his people and God. John 10:10 declares, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy…” We see this in American churches today—small or large churches. Most televangelists are advertising their products for 5-10 minutes to seek for money. This is no good. The ten percent of your money should go to your local church and if you’d like to donate your money to the charity, go ahead, but your money don’t need to go to the TV/radio ministries.

 

Most today’s preachers twisted the truth of tithing. They may tell us that if we’d give $1,000 to their ministries, God will give us double of that amount. This is the lie that comes from the hell. Even though God can bless us with money, He can bless us more than money according to His will—not ours. We can’t take anything on Earth when we’d go to Heaven, because God will provide us everything we lost on the earth. Our homes are not in this earth, because we are just passing by until Jesus Christ would return and take us home.

 

We don’t need to steal anything from our people, because God will supply all of our needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19). If we’d need to get well from cold, we don’t need to go to doctors and get medicines. Instead, we’d need to ask God to heal our sickness. Use our doctors as the last resort, not primary.

 

What do you need from God? God just can’t give it to you. You’d need to establish relationship with Him. I’m not talking about joining religion, but establishing relationship with the Heavenly Father. You could do the Rosary Prayer to the Virgin Mother Mary, but she was just a person who received God’s favor and did not receive the divine power as the mother of God. You could pray to Allah, but he can’t hear you because the word “Allah” is a Hebrew word for curse. But Jesus can answer all of your needs, because He proved Himself that His relationship with us has no match with any of these gods and demonic power.

 

God planned to send His Son, Jesus Christ, to us to pay our sins, so we can have free access to God and develop personal relationship with Him. Would you like to have personal relationship with God? If you’d like to know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, I’d like to encourage you to do two simple things. First, confess your sins and invite Jesus Christ to your life. Paul said in Romans 10:9-11, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” There is no sinner prayer formula. Instead, you just talk to God at where you are now. Secondly, I’d like to encourage you to find a good solid biblical teaching church and Christian friends. They can help you to build strong relationship with God. If you’d need further assistance, you can email me at mgjcwebminstries@mgjcweb.org or visit my ministries website at www.mgjcweb.org for further resources.

Now Playing: Ten Commandments: Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery
Topic: Laws of God

Thou shalt not commit adultery. (Exodus 20:14 KJV)

 

One of most trends today is legalizing adultery. We continue to see that this Christian nation is turning to the days of Sodom and Gomorrah. Most today’s news report fills with legalizing the same-sex marriage. Our president is not doing anything about this situation in our Christian nation. Our education and court systems are favored for the homosexual marriage.

 

What does God say about adultery? Let’s look into the biblical aspect of adultery. In Encarta Dictionary, the word adultery means “voluntary sexual relations between a married person and somebody other than his/her spouse. In Greek, it refers to idolatrous worship. There are three ways for the person could draw into the world system: the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life (I John 2:16). If the person would not satisfy himself with things that he has, he’d beg for more power, wealth, and fame. In fact, King Solomon tried all three things, but these things led him to more trouble in his life. Even his 1,000 wives led him to the idolatry, his relationship with God was dried off. It is sad for our nation to commit adultery and put our spiritual fire off for this nation.

 

We read in II Samuel 11 about how King David c omitted adultery and ended with God’s judgment upon his family and kingdom (II Samuel 12). Yet, he repented his sins. That is why God used him to lead to the lineage of Messiah, Jesus Christ (Matthew 1:1-17).

 

We have two choices: put our spiritual fire back on or off. As our nation would keep legalizing sins, we are kept walking toward to the devil’s trap. We need to have pro-family back in this nation, because this is what God wanted for us.

Ten Commandments: Thou Shalt Not Kill (Pt. 1I)
Topic: Laws of God

Thou shalt not kill. (Exodus 20:13 KJV)

 

Jesus said in John 10:10, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” Let’s examine this simple verse and put this to our generation.

 

As Jesus stated, He didn’t come into our lives to make us miserable, but to give abundant life. He wanted us to have life that would build relationship with Him and people. The Genesis account is all about the relationship from the creation of the world to the formation of the twelve tribes of Israel. In the books of Gospel, we read about why Jesus suffered at the cross for our sins. It was not because He is the God, but He wanted to build relationship with us. He is the Emmanuel, God with us (Matthew 1:23).

 

I believe that God has kept pouring the blessing upon the America over the years. However, we have misused the blessing of God and turned this nation upside down. This coming week, we let our kids to walk to their neighbors to ask for the goodies as they’d celebrate Halloween, which is the satanic high Sabbath or holy day. Halloween has become as our national holiday and to make fun for our family tradition without realizing that we are honoring the dead saints and Satan. It is one of our downfalls we practiced over the years.

 

As where the nation goes, we have been blessed by God to carry His messages out to all the four corners of the world. Also, we are blessed to be partnership with the people of Israel all the years. However, we are continuing to face several tragedies in our land. As I stated, we cannot bring another great spiritual awakening until we’d surrender our sins and ask God for forgiveness.

 

The first 16 days of this month has been turned into financial crunched time for the America. And it is continuing. Why? American has been unplugged to stay in touch with God and her people. We put God away and let our politicians take over the land. Right now, we are trying to fix the www.healthcare.gov to make everybody happy, except God. Most of us run to our medicine cabinets as the primary health source than God to get our health back.

 

As I mentioned on the earlier blog entry, American has been become the World Greatest Fugitive because we let our government to change laws to accept sin activities. Smoking a cigar has been acceptable all over the world, even though it would destroy our bodies permanently. Now, American is continuing to try to make homosexual marriage legal to all the 50 states. As we are continuing to progress to make sin activities legal, we are also continuing to kill our relationships with God and people.

 

God planned to send His Son, Jesus Christ, to us to pay our sins, so we can have free access to God and develop personal relationship with Him. Would you like to have personal relationship with God? If you’d like to know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, I’d like to encourage you to do two simple things. First, confess your sins and invite Jesus Christ to your life. Paul said in Romans 10:9-11, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
