I have always intended to write a series of articles about each of the 10 commandments of God because there are so many doctrines and traditions of men associated with them that most can not even see the truth concerning them. This audio teaching is the best I can do, for the time-being, to communicate some new understandings that few have ever even considered.
[Note: The “G” word is used here, instead of “Elohim” [THE lawmaker and judge of Israel] only for SEO [Search Engine optimization] purposes. I hate that word because of all the false images associated with it.]
I am Yehovah, thy Elohim who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. (Deu 5:6)
The 10 commandments of God were given to the “thy” found in “Yehovah, thy Elohim.” So who is the “thy” to whom the 10 commandments of God were given to? How come Yehovah did not speak to the “thy” in Egypt? Was he His “thy” at that time? Moses was told to tell Pharaoh (one of Israel’s old elohim) these words.
Then thou shall say to Pharaoh, ‘Thus says Yehovah: “Israel’s son/seed [בני ישׂראל, beni Israel, the Ezrach] is My firstborn male [בכרי, bek-ore]. So I say to thee, let My son [בני, my ben] go that he may serve Me. But if thou refuse to let him go, indeed I will kill thy son (בנך), thy firstborn [בכרך].” (Exo 4:22-23)
And He did kill all the firstborn males in Egypt.
We will see that Elohim spoke to Israel’s son/seed “face to face,” and gave us His 1st 10 commandments verbally, but we nearly perished with fear and He had to stop.
Yehovah talked with thee face [פנים, paw-neem] to face[פנים, paw-neem] on the mountain from the midst of the fire. (Deu 5:4)
In light of the this “face to face” business, I found it interesting that the 1st of the 10 commandments of God which HE spoke to Israel’s seed was,
Thou [2nd person, masculine] shall have no other elohim existing [יהיה, ha-yah] before My face [פני, pan-ni]! (Deu 5:6)
Israel’s seed [each spiritually born man] has come out of his Egypt (with their families) and now follows only Yehovah’s statutes, judgements and ordinances!
Most think the 3rd commandment of the 10 commandments of God which HE spoke to Israel’s seed has to do with what they consider profanity. But all who think that are mistaken. This commandment has everything to do with the name we swear by when Israel’s seed makes a vow.
‘Thou shall not take the name of Yehovah, thy Elohim in vain, for Yehovah will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain. (Deu 5:11)
Thou shall fear Yehovah, thy Elohim; thou shall serve Him, and to Him thou shall hold fast, and take oaths in His name. (Deu 10:20)
This is what Numbers 30 is all about; the vows we and our women and daughters make in the name of Yehovah. Yehovah ALWAYS does what He says; and when we vow in His name, we had better do what we say also!
By combining the language of the 4th commandment with the last of the 10 commandments of God, the man or woman who has eyes which see, can clearly see that Yehovah is talking to each one of Israel’s seed, His Ezrach, and no one else.
So much to learn, so little time. Many who choose to seek Yehovah while He may be found stick around after my class and ask a wide variety of questions. I love questions, and if I can not give you an answer based on Torah at that time I will search it out for the following week. This audio has about an hour of unedited questions. Ha – one of my listeners signed off yesterday saying, “I love the Q & A time!” 😉
