Familial and National Curses
Tara Nicole Chapman
I the ETERNAL thy God am a jealous God, visiting [punishing] the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me (Exodus 20:5b).
This might sound awful to many people. Why should children have to suffer for the sins of their fathers? And doesn't the bible contradict itself when it says:
The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him (Ezekiel 18:20).
NO! The bible never contradicts itself on doctrine. Let's look at all the evidence. First of all, there is the physical death that everyone dies, because all have sinned. Even those who have not sinned (Christ and infant children) have died, because they live in a physical body, which is subject to death. Every human being that lives inherits the same type of body--physical, and so every human being is subject to physical death (Rom. 6:23). There is also spiritual life and death. We each are given a spirit to operate our body. When our body dies (meaning that it becomes unable to support life any longer), our spirit is not functional. It can be stored (by God) to later be joined to another body. Or it can be destroyed.
Now, let's look at the context. This is a rather long study, so if you need, print this out or bookmark it. I'm going to include the entire 18th chapter of Ezekiel here:
The word of the ETERNAL came unto me again, saying, What mean ye, that ye use this proverb concerning the land of Israel, saying, The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set on edge? As I live, saith the Lord ETERNAL, ye shall not have occasion any more to use this proverb in Israel. Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die. But if a man be just, and do that which is lawful and right, And hath not eaten upon the mountains, neither hath lifted up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, neither hath defiled his neighbour's wife, neither hath come near to a menstruous woman, And hath not oppressed any, but hath restored to the debtor his pledge, hath spoiled none by violence, hath given his bread to the hungry, and hath covered the naked with a garment; He that hath not given forth upon usury, neither hath taken any increase, that hath withdrawn his hand from iniquity, hath executed true judgment between man and man, Hath walked in my statutes, and hath kept my judgments, to deal truly; he is just, he shall surely live, saith the Lord ETERNAL.
A righteous man who keeps God's law (and who has faith that Christ's sacrifice, since all have sinned--Rom. 3:23) will live.
If he beget a son that is a robber, a shedder of blood, and that doeth the like to any one of these things, And that doeth not any of those duties, but even hath eaten upon the mountains, and defiled his neighbour's wife, Hath oppressed the poor and needy, hath spoiled by violence, hath not restored the pledge, and hath lifted up his eyes to the idols, hath committed abomination, Hath given forth upon usury, and hath taken increase: shall he then live? he shall not live: he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon him.
If the righteous man's son does not go the same way his father did, but instead he breaks God's laws and does abominations instead, he will die for his sins.
Now, lo, if he beget a son, that seeth all his father's sins which he hath done, and considereth, and doeth not such like, That hath not eaten upon the mountains, neither hath lifted up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, hath not defiled his neighbour's wife, Neither hath oppressed any, hath not withholden the pledge, neither hath spoiled by violence, but hath given his bread to the hungry, and hath covered the naked with a garment, That hath taken off his hand from the poor, that hath not received usury nor increase, hath executed my judgments, hath walked in my statutes; he shall not die for the iniquity of his father, he shall surely live.
If the wicked man's sons analyzes/evaluates/observes ("seeth") his father's sins and decides he would rather take a different path and instead follow the laws of God, he shall live.
As for his father, because he cruelly oppressed, spoiled his brother by violence, and did that which is not good among his people, lo, even he shall die in his iniquity. Yet say ye, Why? doth not the son bear the iniquity of the father?
Doesn't the second commandment say that the ETERNAL punishes the iniquity (sins) of fathers upon their children unto the third and fourth generations? "THAT HATE ME." "THAT HATE ME" is the key. We can overcome our familial curses. We can choose NOT to follow the sins of our fathers. God has mercy on those who turn away from the sins of their families. But, we must keep in mind that this saves us spiritually. The sins of some families are so great that the physical consequences of the sin can take several generations to fix, unless we are given complete miraculous healing.
When the son hath done that which is lawful and right, and hath kept all my statutes, and hath done them, he shall surely live. The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son:
Every man dies for his own sins.
the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him. But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die. All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live.
Repentance--turning away from sin--is what is required for eternal life (see also Matt. 19:17; Acts 2:38; Matt. 3:2 & 4:17).
Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord ETERNAL: and not that he should return from his ways, and live?
Again, if a person repents of his wickedness (sin--the transgression of God's law; see I John 3:4), he will live. God desires for all to repent and is sad that some will have to die (see also 2 Peter 3:9).
But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die.
All is fair. Just like when a wicked person repents of his sin and starts doing righteousness and will then live, a righteous person who turns away from his righteousness and starts doing wickedness will die.
Yet ye say, The way of the ETERNAL is not equal. Hear now, O house of Israel; Is not my way equal? are not your ways unequal? When a righteous man turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and dieth in them; for his iniquity that he hath done shall he die. Again, when the wicked man turneth away from his wickedness that he hath committed, and doeth that which is lawful and right, he shall save his soul alive.
Fair they are indeed. Blessed are You, Most Righteous King!! Your way is fair. More than fair. We ALL deserve to die (Rom. 3:23; 6:23). With the death and life of God's most holy Son, those who REPENT (turn away from sin and start obeying God's law) are given grace and will live. Praise God!
Because he considereth, and turneth away from all his transgressions that he hath committed, he shall surely live, he shall not die. Yet saith the house of Israel, The way of the ETERNAL is not equal. O house of Israel, are not my ways equal? are not your ways unequal? Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, saith the Lord ETERNAL.
All will be judged according to his own ways. The righteous will live, and the wicked will die. God judges the heart. (And actions follow the heart. See my study God Does Know Our Hearts)
Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin. Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die, O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord ETERNAL: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye.
God PLEADS with us to repent. He PLEADS us to follow His law. This prophecy is to the House of Israel, America and the British- and Northern Europe-descended nations and also to Judah (modern day "Israel"), which is part of the WHOLE House of Israel. Also, any gentile who takes hold of God's covenant is adopted as an Israelite and is offered salvation (Isaiah 56:6-7; Romans 10:13,17). Note: If you do not yet understand who Israel is and that it's not just the Jews (the name of which comes from the tribe of Judah), please visit the following page: http://www.britam.org/Proof/ProofsIntro.html
Disobedience to God's law--sin--brings curses. Sin is bondage. That is why the peoples of the earth are under curses. Whether it's an individual, a family, a clan or tribe, or a nation, the curses that they reap are a result of what was sown--sin. All nations started out as families and can be traced to a common ancestor.
When individuals, families, tribes, and nations do not know God's law or have abandoned his law, people are always in bondage. The heathen have always crept back into God's people (Israel) physically and spiritually--in government, civilization and worship. Then always a controlling government takes form, and since by then the citizens have rejected God as a whole (you always have that tiny minority of "peculiar" people following God's ways), they start willingly supporting their own bondage (physical bondage typing a spiritual bondage, namely sin), thinking that's the right way. They start calling good evil and evil good and doing what the seems right in their own eyes (Isa. 5:20; Jud. 21:25; Prov. 21:2; 14:12). They will think that the government will protect them (because again, remember by this time they've rejected God's commandments and so crime is rampant).
I think it's important to notice that it's always the non-Israelite groups (non-white) in the Israelite nations that have the highest violent crime rate--the highest murders, sexual crime, aggravated robbery, etc. It's been that way all through history. But, it's always because the Semitic, and more specifically the Israelite peoples, have first rejected God's so-called "lesser" commandments (regarding non-violent sin), so then "equality" always comes up. There's nothing wrong with equality among man, as long as they all obey God's law. But, it's a mistake whenever nations cave in to the sinners and then give the sinners equality to those who do not practice sin. If a person formerly in the sinners (unGodly) category converted to the non-sinners (Godly) category, they should only then be given freedom, equality, privileges, etc. Because, as soon as the Godly give into the sinners by giving them equality, they will soon rise and devour the Godly--all in the name of freedom, "liberty," and "equal" rights (Prov. 29:2, 18).
All peoples, no matter what family group (shade of skin, language, etc.), are equal in God's eyes IF they all follow His ways. But, if they don't, then they're NOT equal. Let's not strive to be "politically correct" in man's eyes. God set Israel as an example nation, and Israel has always given in. Over and over Israel has given into the wicked and have spiraled downward and gone after the heathens' ways. The vicious cycle continues. God wants to adopt non-Israelites, but Israel continues to sin.
It's not wrong--not "racist" or "hating" or whatever--to say that the white peoples of Britain and the United States are blessed over the blacks, Hispanics, Muslims, etc. It's not wrong to say that the whites, in general, are more civilized, cleaner, etc. It's the truth. But, any black, Hispanic, or other gentile can become equal among whites. It's just a small minority of them who choose to do so. The majority of people in the gentile groups delight in their folly and choose to continue in their wicked and foolish ways.
I'm going to get pretty specific and give several examples so there's no doubting what I'm saying here. For those who find themselves easily offended or have already falsely accused me of "hating" or "being racist" (there is one race among peoples--the human race), this article obviously isn't going to be of any help for you to improve yourself and break free from your individual, familial, or national curses, so you may as well save yourself the anger and stop reading right now. BUT, if you desire truth in all matters, if you are willing to admit sin, if you want to be corrected, and if you want to overcome your sins and those of your families and nations, then keep reading, and then later meditate on what I've said. And for those "white" people who think they are better than everyone else just because of the "white" skin shade, you're in for a surprise, too. As a matter of fact, the "white" people of the United States, Britain, Canada, and other related nations are soon in for the biggest punishment ever in the history of this world. So, keep reading, because I have some things to say to the "white" people as well.
It should be no mystery to the people living here in the United States that blacks and Hispanics (our two largest gentile groups) commit more violent sins, which break God's commandments, commit more sexual sins, more stealing, more substance (food and drug) abuse, more coveting, more laziness, and so on. Anyone who doesn't admit this is either living in a box away from everyone else or is falsely denying the facts.
Let's look at the "black"-skinned people group. We all know they came from Africa. The American whites bought some of them as slaves/servants from Africa. I think it's usually left out of public school textbooks that it was fellow black Africans who sold them to the white people. And it's also overlooked by most that this group of people were blessed to be owned by white Americans. The African slave-owners didn't treat them so nicely, but most American owners were very kind to their slaves, and the largest percentage of slave owners were middle class folks who worked right alongside their slaves. Many slaves didn't even want to leave their owners after the War for Southern Independence (wrongly called the "Civil War," which initially had nothing to do with slavery--that was a front to make the North look like the good side). Also left out of the U.S. government-chosen public school textbooks is the fact that there were FREE American blacks, some of whom owned slaves themselves! You see, there was a minority of blacks in that time, as in all times through history, who chose to live the biblically-based civilized way that the whites did, and they earned their freedom. (Remember, freedom is never free.)
Let's first evaluate the continent of Africa. Does anyone in his or her right mind argue that Africa is not perhaps the most cursed of all continents? When you watch the ads for nonprofit organizations like Save the Children, what children are shown the most? Whenever people think of starving children, what is the first continent that usually comes to mind? We think of the poor black children in Africa who are literally starving to death and often dehydrating. They are overcome with famine. They obviously have not been blessed with the best minds or the best lands. It appears to me that Africa is not blessed in any way. The most blessed Africans on the planet, I believe, reside within the United States of America. Why is this so, if white people are the bad guys who are doing black people so wrongly? Why is it that the blacks did not choose to go back to Africa when they were given the option? Well, would you have? Yet, they STILL loudly demand their equality, all while still living in their vile ways. They have an attitude that the white people owe them something, because our ancestors had them in servitude, as if it was some crime on the white people's part. (Remember, most slaves had it made, and their owners were very good to them and all but the wealthiest owners usually worked alongside them. Israelites have always been the kindest to their slaves and hired servants.)
Africa has killer diseases, including widespread STDS like HIV, killer famines, killer water, killer animals in great numbers, and killer people. They have lack of water, lack of lush vegetation, lack of good crops, lack of health. And there's one thing that stand above all. They have a lack of the true God, a lack of morality, a lack of the TRUTH. It's also the continent where you most often hear stories of demon possession and strange tribes mutilating themselves with sticks or discs in their noses, ears, lips, or genitals and where they drink blood and dance around fires chanting, eating disgusting animals, as well as other uncivilized things that they do and far-out ignorant beliefs that they have. They are heathens. Those Africans who are not starving, mutilating, and chanting are busy on the Internet trying to defraud people. This is very widespread. I used to send bibles and biblical literature to people in African nations, such as Nigeria, Kenya, and Ghana. The vast majority of those who contacted me were frauds, trying to get money or at the very least sell the bibles that were sent free of charge (and cost a great amount for shipping). I stopped sending anything to Africa, because such a low number of them are sincere. Overall, they are a wicked and cursed people. (Some of the black people whom I have known have been the BEST people I have met. My top two favorite schoolteachers were both black, and they were the ONLY black teachers I ever had. I'm about to publish an article about teachers and students, and I will talk more about them there.)
So, now the entire general (in other words, not-in-prison) black population in America is free. But, a significant percentage of them should not be. They do not seem to know how to properly conduct their behavior. Regardless of whether the whites made them free from serving them, most blacks are still in bondage to sin. They only think they are free. They are still vile as a people. There is just that small percentage that have chosen to live as the white people (and most "whites" do not wholeheartedly follow all of God's commandments, either). But, ALL of them want to benefit from the blessings that have been poured out upon the white peoples.
Let's evaluate the blacks in the States of America. Seventy percent of blacks are born out of wedlock (CDC Statistics, 2005). Around 38 percent of black households are single mother households--more than 1 out of 3--compared to about 9 percent of whites ( (Census Bureau). Nearly 40 percent of black children are poor (childrensdefense.org), as opposed to only 11 percent of whites. Blacks are 6.5 (six and a half) times more likely to be incarcerated than whites (and it's mainly because they commit more sin; only a small percentage has anything to do with prejudice). Blacks account for 43 percent of all HIV cases in the U.S., and among women, black women account for 56 percent of all HIV in the United States. (Whites account for 82 percent of the population, blacks only 13 percent, and Hispanic 11 percent, so the above numbers are very significant.) Statistics from the Dept. of Social Services in the state of South Carolina revealed that, of people on food stamps in that state, 62.5 percent were blacks, while 34.5 percent were white (06/2007). National statistics from the Bureau of the Census reported a study made up of women on food stamps and women who were not. Whites made up 79.4 percent of the total participants, while blacks made up only 16 percent. But, of those white women, only 12.5% were on food stamps, while nearly half (49.7%) of the black women were on food stamps (08/95). And I know well enough that most of the white women and families who are on food stamps are so, because they live like the gentiles (black, Mexican, etc.) do. The common term with which most are familiar is "white trash." That is the term we use for Israelite peoples who live like heathens. It's sad, but in the United States, it's hard to be a hard-working, tax-paying white citizen who is poor and needs a little temporary help to GET the help; but it's usually easy for lazy, unclean, and unkept people of all shades of skin to get food stamps and welfare. I know this, because I've been there. I lived out poor days in the past, and it's about impossible to get help if you have anything (like a decent car that can be used to get to work reliably, for example.) I had a newer model car that I'd worked hard to pay for and was half-way finished paying for it (only $209/month), but we couldn't pay all our bills. It's not like we were using our money to buy anything else. But, because I had a decent car, I could not get help. I worked, though. My husband worked. We had reliable transportation, and we just needed a little temporary help, until we finished higher education and could earn more money. Yet, someone who does not even want to work and who doesn't even make the effort to comb his or her hair or bathe (when they have the proper facilities at home) or keep his or her home clean (I've seen some disgusting houses in my days) can go get signed up on some food stamps and welfare and keep receiving it without even trying to work. Sure, they may have to report that they've tried to get a job, but those people can come up with excuses without end. Our system is corrupt. The lazy and unclean are being handed money to get by, but the poor who are hardworking, clean, and goal-oriented but need some honest help are given the cold shoulder. This is backward, and it's wrong. The bible teaches the opposite. The bible talks strongly against those who are lazy and abominable and says that they will come to poverty. But, it speaks very strongly, too, against those who oppress the poor and needy (who can't help their circumstances, who are not lazy).
Who started the cRap music? Who dominates it? They "sing" (more like yell and curse) about adultery and fornication; degradation of women, including physical, sexual, and verbal abuse; substance abuse; murder; stealing; materialism; cursing God; disrespecting parents, elders, and authority; fighting; profane talking; and who knows what else. They become very rich in monetary wealth for virtually little to no skill and talent, and then they use their wealth to do more evil and to be selfish. This is what our nation has come to support with their earnings. They support heathen trash. Congratulations, America.
But, there are always SOME who were born in heathen families that say, "NO! I will not follow in the footsteps of my family, tribe, or nation. I may be black-skinned (or red, yellow, brown, or even white), but I am NOT like my family. I can see the error in their ways and their curses, and I don't want that for myself or for my posterity."
I recently wrote up a movie review on Running Brave, based on a true story. I recommend everyone reading this to buy this movie and to watch it. You can buy it from the website http://www.indianyouth.org/ and be helping financially for a great cause, or you can buy it used on Amazon.com. To read my blog entry on the movie, visit http://taratorah.blogspot.com/2008/12/running-brave.html. The main subject of the movie, Billy Mills, is a good example of someone who overcame poverty as a Native American (half-white) who grew up on a reservation. He worked hard at running and was rewarded a track scholarship to college. He ended up going on to the 1964 Olympics and won a gold medal for the United States, the only one won for that particular race. He had to live like the whites in order to make it. He had to deal with prejudiced comments from the white people and at the same time suffer rejection from his physical family and friends (Native Americans). Another good example is our soon-to-be president of the U.S., Barack Obama, half-white and half-black, the first black president of the nation. He didn't get there by following in the footsteps of most blacks. He has made himself equal to whites. I know for a fact that he suffers racial hate from whites, and he probably gets evil comments also from blacks, for acting white. It's very difficult for gentile peoples, especially blacks, I think, to overcome and fit in among the whites. They have two sides hating them. The whites should be ashamed for doing this, because we should judge each person righteously individually, on his or her personal character. It's good to be on guard when around blacks, Mexicans, or other gentile persons, but it usually becomes apparent pretty quickly whether they are "like the rest of them" or whether they are good over-comers. And not to be ignored is that there is an ever-increasing number of whites who are being overcome by gentile ways. We are sliding into a pit that will soon call down judgement upon our nation from the Most High God. I spent the second half of my elementary school years and nearly all my junior high and high school years going to school with about an estimated 70 percent white and 30 percent black population (at that time, other groups were rare, and only in my last few years did several Mexicans start attending). Most of them used intimidation toward the white people. They were more likely to be vulgar, indecent, pregnant while unwed, fighting, and spouting off folly of all sorts. Not all of them were this way, though. I don't agree with those white people that choose to misjudge and mistreat all blacks, based solely on their skin shade, but I will definitely say that their culture as a whole doesn't make it hard for people to hate them. The ones who lose the biggest here are the kind and decent black people, because they are judged as if they are like the majority of their family group. It's so unfair to them, and my compassion runs deeply for them, because it is surely very difficult to have overcome the sins and attitudes of the African people and yet be judged as if you are still one of them....judged by the color of one's skin.
It's the SAME the other way around. Even though the majority of whites are more closely following God's ways, there are some who are just as vile as the vilest of gentiles. EVERYBODY has the CHOICE of how he or she will conduct him- or herself. Most people have heard many stories of how individuals from the worst of family backgrounds and the worst sin histories have OVERCOME. But, there are also those who do NOT overcome, and they choose to follow in the ways of their fathers. There are even some who come from good family backgrounds and choose the vilest ways.
Other gentile groups have their own sins that they commit in their own ways. Different groups are known for different sins. I've worked around other groups besides blacks and whites, and I have noticed certain things about each group. I went into detail concerning the African-descended people, and so I won't go into specific details about other groups. People can observe for themselves what it is that each gentile group is doing wrong.
I want to briefly mention two more black people, two that overcame the black family group's wretched ways, and then I will castigate white America. First of all, Martin Luther King, Jr. was a fantastic role model, not only for black Americans, but for everyone. He indeed had a dream that both black and white would be equal. He was sad to see the white's racism toward black people. I want to focus on one point, though, of his famous "I Have a Dream" speech:
"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character" (bold and underline emphasis mine). THIS is how it should be, folks. THIS is how it should be for the sake of that SMALL percentage among the gentile peoples who are not like the rest of their families. The human race as a whole has become so very corrupt that God could very well say, "I'm finished with mankind. I'm ready to blast the whole planet to smithereens." But, He has promised that for the sake of the FEW who love Him and keep His commandments, He will not destroy the earth until His plan of salvation is finished, and He will send Christ back to the earth before mankind destroys itself all for the sake of the FEW. God has chosen not to judge by the WHOLE, but individually. And we should do the same. White Israelites who hate gentile individuals for their skin color and for the sins of their family groups are in danger of judgment!! For example, as a whole the black family group can be be rightly judged as atrocious and very heathen. But, not all who have black skin can be judged that way. The GROUP/FAMILY can be judged that way, but the Israelites should, with open arms, ADOPT those gentile individuals who act like Israelites rather than gentiles. ALL through the Old and New Testaments of the bible, God has left it very clear that ANYONE, Israelite or gentile, is ACCEPTED by Him if they take hold onto His covenant.
The other individual I wanted to mention is black man Bill Cosby, former actor and now a controversial activist for transforming the black community's family values. Bill is sickened by his family's (black America) stupidity, violence, laziness and greed, and other poor family values. I've watched and listened to some of his speeches. He is HATED by much of the black community. Most of them don't want to be convicted of their sins and don't want to change. An Arizona blogger Kenneth Carroll posted on his blog October 18, 2007:
...I see a common theme; if a black man, or woman, becomes successful; they suddenly are not "black enough"....
It is pretty obvious to me that as long as Blacks look up to pimps and drug dealers -- "the players" -- and put down successful blacks that have pulled themselves to the top, there will never be reform in the black neighborhoods. As long as they cheer on the "LOSERS" and boo the "WINNERS" who is going to want to become booed? They are even clamoring that Obama is not black enough, and his popularity is beginning to fall.
The sooner black leaders support the message Bill Cosby is bringing forth, the sooner racial equality is going to be realized. As long as Blacks listen to the messages of Sharpton, Jackson, and other pimps, the longer they will be entrenched in the ghetto lifestyle.
Even if a pimp got nominated to run for president, as soon as he agreed he would live in the "Big House" he would then be considered "not black enough" and he would be ostracized from the black community (http://kennethcarroll.blogspot.com/2007/10/why-do-blacks-object-to-bill-cosby.html).
Yes, indeed that's what I've been saying. Whenever someone breaks away from their family's sin (in this case, the black tribe), he or she is HATED by their own. WHY should white Israelite America make it hard for these honorable individuals? Why are we not JOYFULLY accepting these people? Why do so many whites judge by skin color, REGARDLESS of character? This grieves me at heart. I am glad my Father in heaven doesn't judge ME by the fact that I'm a human being, because as a WHOLE, human beings are very wicked across the whole planet right now. Likewise, individuals who have broken away from their gentile family's way of life should not be judged by the fact that they're physically a gentile. It's the CHARACTER, it's the heart that matters.
NOW, it's time to focus on white America, to show them their sins.
The first commandment is broken, because Anglo-Saxon-descended Americans are putting anything and everything before His Sovereign Majesty, the Most High God. We should have no other gods before Him. That doesn't mean that people should not honor righteous leaders. It doesn't mean that wives should not revere their husbands. It doesn't mean that children should not honor their parents. As a matter of fact, it is Godly to do these things. But, we shouldn't put these people first in our lives. We should be willing to give up these people, if they were to forsake us for our serving the ETERNAL God. Some people also put animals first, and put the above all. Some worship evil spirits. Some worship and serve money, created things, and/or false god images and idols.
That leads to the second commandment, the command not to make engraved and sculpted statutes and any likeness of anything to use in prayer and adoration. Millions of Catholics adore and bow down to statues of the "Virgin Mary" and other "saints," and they kiss and bow their head to and pray to pictures of whom they call "Christ." Other Israelites go hardcore into heathen religions and bow before "Buddha," "Krishna," and other manmade idols. The Israelite nation of the U.S. erected a gift from the French masons--the "Statue of Liberty"--with the sun-rayed crown at Ellis Island in New York. To millions of immigrants, that statue was the first thing they saw when entering the U.S., and they started praying thanks to God for their liberty but seeing the statue as a symbols of that liberty. We don't need statues to worship and thank God! God brings liberty. He doesn't want us to have a statue to represent it. The Washington Monument is nothing but a large obelisk, the heathen phallic (penis) symbol of the heathen fertility, physical-worshiping cult religions. The steeples and obelisks are seen on "Christian" church buildings throughout our land.
The third commandment is being broken by Israelite white America, because the majority of the claim to be "Christian" and claim we live in a "nation under God," but they are only saying those things in vain, a worthless talk, because they do not worship and obey Him and treat others and themselves the way God sees right in His eyes, but they worship Him in ways they see right in their own eyes. They may see themselves as righteous, and so in all truth they are expecting God to reward them with eternal life and good things for what they see right. They may justify their wrong ways and have a hard time believing that God would actually not accept them that way. But, the truth is most professing Christians are only willing to do so many things that are pleasing to God, and then they stop before they get to where they'd no longer be uncomfortable. They'd rather be accepted by other people than by God. They don't have a true fear of God. They have a fear of people, instead. Only a relatively small percentage of Christians zealously seek God's ways wholeheartedly. Christ said these people are worshiping Him in vain, rejecting the commandments of God in order to keep manmade traditions and ways (Matt. 15:8-9; Deut. 12:30-32). Another way people break the third commandment is that they use God's name and titles in a worthless and/or disrespectful way, often cursing. What the third commandment is not is a command to spell or pronounce God's name a certain way. THIS will be discussed within my next article, when I write about NAMES. So, be looking for that article that is soon to come.
The fourth commandment is ignored by almost all of professing Christians within our land. The fourth commandment tells us to REMEMBER the sabbath day, too keep it holy, and six days we shall do all our work and then we shall rest on the seventh day. Some keep the wrong day--Sunday, the first day of the week--holy and do not do any work or commerce on that day, and they go to worship services on that day. The majority now does not keep any day holy. People are entirely too busy to take out a day each week to REST, reflect on God's creation and His goodness and blessings and to fellowship with the Father and Christ and other believers. The true biblical sabbath is the seventh day of the week, and God's days start in the evening (see the first chapter of Genesis and Lev. 23:32). So, the sabbath is from sundown on what the Roman calendar calls "Friday" and ends at sundown on what the Roman calendar calls "Saturday." This is the SEVENTH day, which is the day God hallowed for us to rest and worship Him and enjoy what He created for us (Gen. 2:2-3; Ex. 20:8-11; 23:1231:13-17; 35:2; Lev. 23:3; Isa. 58:13-14; etc. and the NT Hebrews 4:1-11 and all the examples of the believers in the book of Acts). The Catholic church, the major whore Christian church (a spiritual virgin is one who is pure and following God's law; a spiritual whore is one who fornicates God's ways with heathen ways) of Revelation 17, changed God's laws and doctrines to accommodate the heathen practices of the citizens of the old Roman Empire. Included in that was the change of God's 7th day sabbath to the first day of the week when people would worship the Sun (hence the name Sunday). The Catholic church also deleted the 2nd commandment and divided the last of the 10 commandments into two, so there would still be ten. They also replaced God's feast days (found in Lev. 23) with the heathen feast days they now call "Christmas," "Easter," Jan. 1 "New Year's," etc. The fourth commandment also covers all the labor laws. We are to rest on the seventh day, but the other portion of the commandment tells us to do our work on the other six days. Sins of laziness, therefore, fall under this law. There are some who do not maintain their homes and/or do not make an effort to go work for a living. And there are some employers out there who do not treat their employees very fairly. All of these things transgress the fourth commandment.
The fifth commandment is the commandment is the one that tells that we shall honor our father and our mother. What most miss is the fact that first and foremost, we are to honor our Heavenly Father, the Most High God who resides in the heavens above. We are to honor Him by by loving and obeying Him and by talking to Him. And yes, to the shock of many who call themselves Christians, the earth is our "mother." God did create the earth, and He made people with spirits, but He also used dirt. We are children of the earth, too. The PHYSICAL side of us has a mother, and that mother is the earth. A woman represents the earth, and a child is born from a woman's womb, and then when a person dies, he or she decays and returns to the dirt. So, yes, we are to honor the earth, too. But, we are to honor it as a gift from our Father. We are to recognize that the earth was CREATED by God and is not to be treated as the Creator. As long as we have physical bodies and require physical nourishment from a physical mother (the earth), we have the RESPONSIBILITY to take good care of our health of our bodies and the health of our mother's body. So, for those professing Christians who are so careless in their attitudes toward the earth and who reject the facts that we are experiencing global warming, that we are wiping out our forests, that we are killing out plants and animals and polluting our air, land, and water, you are WRONG!!!! We are expected by God Himself to respect and honor the earth, just as we are to respect and honor our very own physical bodies, because we DO live in physical bodies. Carefully notice the whole fifth commandment, where it says that if we honor our father and our mother that our days will be long upon the land which the ETERNAL God has given us. We have a Father God, and He GAVE us a mother on which to live and be nourished by. And we honor our Father by thanking Him for this and all of the many blessings that He provides for us and gives to us and for His divine protection. Now, of course, this commandment also means that we are to honor our earthly fathers and mothers. We are to love and appreciate the mothers who carried us in their wombs for nine months or longer, nourishing us with their bodies, and whom nursed us with the milk of their breasts after our birth, ideally for another two or three years (some longer) and whom held us and gently cared for us in those early nursing years. We are to love and reverence our fathers whom are the most important role model for the post-nursing childhood years. We should be thankful for our fathers who provided for us, gave good gifts to us, and who protected us. And we should also be thankful that our fathers chose good mothers to nourish, nurture, and care for us in those early years and throughout all the years of our childhoods while our fathers were gone during the day, working. Our agricultural practices also dishonor the "mother" earth that our Father God provided for us. God left us agricultural laws, and we are not following them at all. Thus, we are paying the price big-time with more pests than ever, more toxic pesticides and herbicides than ever, and we are ruining the ground. Yes, there are those out there who worship the "mother earth" and who do not follow God's commandments. They worship the sun, moon, stars, earth, trees, and whatever. This is different. I'm not advocating that. Satan has done a fine job of deceiving millions of professing Christians into thinking we should disrespect the earth, because to respect the earth and be responsible about our natural resources would be to worship the earth! Give me a break! Both parties (the mother earth worshipers and the mainstream Christians) are wrong. We are not to go to the left (mother earth worshipers) or to the right (mainstream Christians). The mother didn't create us. The earth is a created entity. The heathens believe in immortality, and there's TRUTH to this, because our physical bodies ARE recycled over and over again. We return to the dust. But, you see, I have NO interest whatsoever in worshiping the earth. Because, our spirits are NOT immortal and are not recycled. If we worship the physical, then we'll never have hope for eternal life, because the physical part of us (our current bodies) are recycled into something else, and the spirit does not go with it.
The Israelite nations with all the "white" people should be ASHAMED for how terribly they are transgressing this 5th commandment! More and more, they are just flat-out denying that there's even a God in the heavens above. Those who are not foolish enough to deny what the evidence shows--that there IS a God--are deceiving and being deceived more and more (2 Tim. 3:12). I think the following scripture sums it all up quite well, including the part about disobedience to parents:
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as their's also was (2 Timothy 3:1-9).
So many children are so out of control these days, so utterly disrespectful to their parents. They curse at their parents and disobey. They talk wickedly to and about them. They lie to them. They do not help them out around the house. More and more are even physically murdering their parents. Grown adults disrespect their elderly parents and absolutely do not care anything about taking care of them in their old age, when some of them need special care. Some grown adults who live near their parents will not even take their parent(s) to get groceries or to run other errands. They won't take them to a doctor when one is needed. They won't ever fix meals or help out in any other way. (This does not apply to those who live far away from their parents. For example, I live five hours away from my parents, but if they were elderly and needed assistance, I would bring them into my home, unless they refused to move. My friend and co-worker in Christ, Keith, recently talked of how his father needed some help, but he lives a good ways from his father. His father does not want to move, so Keith had someone who lives near his father to help him. I'm talking about people who live near their parents but do not give a flip about helping them.)
The United States (Israel) claims to be "one nation under God," but the nation has rejected its God. Britain is ahead of them in sliding into the pit. I've occasionally read Europe's news, and it's sad and embarrassing how the other nations of Europe view Britain and the Brits' debauchery. The nation of Israel (Judah) also, overall, does not take heed to God's ways. The other Israelite nations are also very secular in nature, worshiping material possessions and loving themselves more than they love God. Britain has more practicing witches than Christians, and their church buildings are closing down in large numbers. They are grossly immoral. The United States elects unGodly leaders and representatives. They worship and follow after Hollywood stars--music and movie icons. They worship the work of their hands--all the things to buy these days. Of course, there is nothing wrong with some movies and music. There are good movies and good music out there. There's nothing wrong with owning nice things, provided you can afford to pay for it. What's wrong is that so many of the movies and music are atrocious. And most of the "stars" are the worst role models, with high divorce rates, plenty of fornication, substance abuse, focus on physical beauty including all the cosmetic surgeries, worship of money and material things. So many people live off their credit cards and buy one thing after another that they can't afford. Often, people even purchase these things when they're not even employed!
The churches are filled with very secular-minded people. There are plenty of out-of-the-closet homosexuals preaching in the pulpits. Most women who have abortions claim their religion to be Christian. More Christians divorce than non-Christians. Porn addiction is high among professing Christian men, and adultery and fornication is also. Most Christians aren't any more health-conscious than non-Christians. Most of them aren't any nicer or helpful than non-Christians. Why, most don't even read much of the bible. There are only a small percentage of Christians who are distinguishable from non-Christians. Of these, some are still seemingly clueless as to what the bible teaches about their faith. They still go to church on Sunday--the first day of the week--which is a regular work day, nothing hallowed about it by God. They still delight in the Roman calendar's holy days--Jan. 1, St. Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Halloween, Christmas, etc. Some devout Catholics have so many holidays that I've never even heard of all them--Ash Wednesday (if that's even the right day), Good Friday, Maudy Monday (or maybe it's Tuesday), Lent, and so on. Those are ALL satanically-inspired holidays, the roots of some of which go back long before Christ walked this earth in flesh (like Easter and Christmas). They think we "have immortal souls" that go to either heaven, or an ever-burning hell where your immortal self is tortured for all eternity, upon death. They think that the God of Israel, Creator of ALL things in the universe-the one true God--is some 3-in-1/triune "trinity." Yes, people have turned their back on the Father God, dishonoring Him.
There is something else, too, that the fifth commandment covers that goes unnoticed by nearly everyone. Parents are to be honored, but they also have the responsibility to be good and loving to their children. There is no shortage of scripture-twisting that goes on. People like to say that since a wife is to submit to her husband, for example, that he can rule over her like a tyrant. I'm sure some parents think since their children are to honor them, that they can be tyrannical, too. Just as the bible is clear that a husband is to love his wife and care for her as the weaker vessel, parents are to treat their children with tender love and not to provoke them to anger (Ephesians 6:4). In other words, just as a Godly husband should be worthy of his wife submitting to him (because he takes good care of her and loves her), Godly parents should be worthy of the honor they are due from their children. We have SO much child abuse, child neglect, and so many other things, that it just breaks my heart. I'm not saying that children ought not to be punished, scolded, etc. when needed, but I'm talking about the truly wicked parents out there who verbally, physically, and/or sexually ABUSE their children and those who neglect their care. So, parents, too, are violating the 5th commandment by mistreating their children. We have ALL been guilty of both dishonoring our parents and mistreating our children, whether it's just saying something disrespectful. Christians need to work diligently every day to be respectful of our parents and our children. Respect for the elderly also falls under this commandment. The elderly are like mothers and fathers to us (or grandmothers and grandfathers).
The 6th commandment!! This covers a lot, and everyone is guilty of breaking this. Like all the others, if we have not repented of breaking this commandment and are striving daily to keep all o God's commandments, we will be damned. The 6th commandment states that we shall not murder. Ah, so not everyone has literally ended the life of another human being without good cause (self-defense, defense of other innocent beings, and death penalty). Nevertheless, everyone IS guilty of breaking this commandment. Wrongful fighting, wrongful hatred (Matt. 5:21-22), and wrongful war (fighting on a grand scale) all fall under this commandment. Elective abortion falls under this commandment. Although the gentile groups by FAR murder a larger percentage of their unborn children, the Israelite "white" people now shout by the droves, "Women's rights!" and "Women's right to choose." Say what?! Since when is murdering the fruit of our wombs a "right?" People are just downright SICK to even consider murdering an innocent child. It's one thing to feel hatred toward an older individual who has wronged you, but how can one ever come up with an excuse for barbarically murdering an innocent little baby? I just don't get it. I've NEVER understood this, and I NEVER will. I didn't even KNOW something awful like this existed until my teen years. I don't remember when I first learned of it, but it has been shocking all through the years. I've encountered several individuals who actually believe that abortion is a good Christian practice. I mean, what the in the hell and all the earth is wrong with these people? It's selfishness in the highest degree. I've SEEN pictures of aborted babies. I've seen a video of a first trimester abortion. Several years ago I compiled a binder of abortion facts, statistics, pictures, testimonials, etc. (and still have it). I spent a good deal weeping over all these children who have been BARBARICALLY murdered. These children are murdered by being sucked apart (in the early weeks), torn limb from limb and having their heads crushed (in later weeks/months), chemically burned with saline four hours of torment before death (no longer a practice in the US, to my knowledge), and partially delivered footling breech (feet first) until the head is past the cervix and then scissors inserted at the base of the skull and then a vacuum sucking the brain out. This is BARBARIC and deeply EVIL. This is so despicable; it ranks right up there with past heathen child sacrifice. There are women who have DEEPLY grieved after abortions, and thankfully have repented of the evil practice, but they live with the memory and pain for the rest of this life. I've read VERY, VERY sad stories, and I just simply cannot think of anything worse than abortion and child murder of any age(although some child abuse is horrible, too). The United States of America is NOT a Christian nation. It is NOT one nation under God. That is BLASPHEMY, a transgression of the third commandment. Yes, there ARE true righteous Christians who zealously follow God's commandments, who reside in this nation. But, the nation's government and most of its citizens are EVIL. No nation that calls the ETERNAL its God should be giving up their children to abominable sacrifice. It is extremely an abomination to God (Deut. 12:31) and ALL of the children of God. Whenever Israel (including Judah) has walked away from God's commandments, abominable barbaric child sacrifice has always risen its ugly head. We as a nation are very SICK.
Abusing our bodies with unhealthful choices also violates the 6th commandment. It's not showing love to ourselves, nor is it showing love to our fellow human beings, because it's setting a bad example. It is not showing love to God, because it's showing irresponsible action toward the bodies He has given us. All the dietary laws and other health laws contained within the first five books of the bible fall under this commandment. Anything that is shown evident that is harmful to the body, using those things or doing those things (or using or doing in excess, depending on what it is) is transgressing this law. Therefore, substance abusers (whether "food" or "drug") are transgressing this law.
Animal abuse also falls under this commandment. Yes, that's right. God expects us to be kind and respectful to animals. This does not mean that we shouldn't kill clean animals for food and that we shouldn't use animals for work. There are some people who go out in the left field on this, too. Then, there are the people who go out in the right field and think that we can do whatever we please with animals. Hence, we have factory farms, where people just treat animals like nonliving machinery. And we have people abusing and neglecting their animals. We have all kinds of just AWFUL things going on in this nation of the United States that claims to be "under God." I've done a great deal of research on this subject, and I've just cried my eyes out after learning what kinds of things go on. It's sick, and it's certainly NOT Godly. Even non-livestock animals are treated horribly for the manufacture of vaccines and so-called "natural" pharmaceuticals (as opposed to synthetic versions that doesn't depend on animal factory farms, but nevertheless are often dangerous). For example, horses in Montana, USA and Canada are kept in factory farms and made pregnant. They are kept confined and dehydrated, and their urine is collected. Colts are killed. The pregnant horses' urine is then used in the manufacture of the menopausal drug Premarin (pregnant mare urine, in other words). To all my fellow women out there who are nearing menopause, please seek the best way to care for your health, and avoid hysterectomy and menopausal drugs. (Premarin is a popular estrogen replacement drug. A woman who has undergone a complete hysterectomy (removal of internal reproductive organs) can no longer produce the needed estrogen herself.)
The 7th commandment. WELL! This one is just about non-existent in the United States, as well as other Israelite nations. "Thou shalt not commit adultery!" First of all, the biblical definition of adultery is a man having sex with another man's wife. If a married or unmarried man has sex with a never-married woman, it is not adultery. It's fornication, which still falls under this commandment and is still sin, but it's not as serious an offense. Also, if both parties are unmarried, it is fornication. A wife is owned by her husband. This is why, in God's law, that the man is to pay a bride price to the woman's father (because the father owns the woman until she is married). This is also why we women bear our fathers' last names, until we are married, and then we take our husbands' surnames. For all the radical feminists (who probably aren't even reading, anymore, by this point), GET OVER IT. I am happy that I belong to my husband. He takes very good care of me and loves and cherishes me. I've not lost any liberty. Rather, it GIVES me liberty. I have stability in my life. I have a caregiver. I have protection. Yes, I must ask permission from my husband for certain things. Big deal. I have it made. SO, when a man takes another man's wife to bed, he is asking to be slaughtered:
Can a man take fire in his bosom and not be burned? Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be burned? So he that goeth into his neighbor's wife; whosoever toucheth her shall not be innocent...Whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul [life]...For jealousy is the rage of a man: therefore he will not spare in the day of vengenance... (Proverbs 6:27-28, 32, 34).
You're playing Russian roulette, in other words, if you mess with another man's wife. Notice "jealousy is the rage of a man." The word jealousy is used when someone is angry that someone else is getting something (or someone) that is rightfully his. (Jealousy is not a sin; envy is. Study the difference.) Yes, a man's wife BELONGS to him.
The divorce rate in this nation is astounding. The extramarital affairs is also astounding. Fornication and pornography is all but shoved in our faces every day. People seem to live for sex. I think probably the biggest problem is the lie that husband and wife cannot have a lifelong fully satisfying sex life--just the two of them. Sadly, this is because most married couples in this nation do NOT have a satisfying sex life. There are varying reasons, and some couples have multiple reasons. It can be due to the man giving into pornography temptation, if it's sent to his email uninvited. It can be because the woman is denying her husband sex or enough sex to satisfy his drive. It can be due to problems with the woman who had been sexually molested as a child or raped sometime in her life. It can be due to obesity, because one or both partners played the glutton. It can be a number of things. BUT, these things can be overcome. The marriage bed can be extremely enjoyable for both man and wife, if both are giving to each other fully. You must first make the choice to love your husband or wife. If you don't want to make the choice to truly love someone, no matter what your feelings may be at any given time, then do not marry. That's my best advice to you. But, if you have made the choice and VOWED (PROMISED) to love and cherish your husband and wife until DEATH of either, then you should have no trouble in the sexual arena. It's the perfect time to show the physical side of your love for him or her. BUT, the spiritual side has to be there FIRST for the physical side to be fully satisfying. You have to love your mate with your MIND first. If both parties would truly do in every marriage, no one would be giving thoughts to watching someone else have sex or going off having sex with someone else.
Same-sex relations is a multiplying abomination in Israelite nations. I am appalled at how it is increasing here in the United States. People are so fond of blaming "religious" people of being stupid for being opposed to homosexual relations, but with all due respect, shouldn't anyone with good SCIENTIFIC LOGIC have the good sense to figure out that the penis of a man was specifically made for the vagina of a woman???? Look, I shouldn't have to go into much detail here. It's an embarrassment that there is even a controversy over this. And it won't work with me to say that God made such-and-such a person that way from the womb. I go into detail on this in my book Genetic Heavy Metal Toxicity. See the chapter on behavioral disorders. Indeed, people ARE messed up from the womb, but that doesn't mean that God is responsible for it, and it doesn't mean that it's okay to act on one's disgusting lusts with which they had the born tendency. I have had lots of genetically-passed on traits that I've had to overcome. Some physical things are hard to overcome and sometimes never can (like a person blind may very well always be that way; a person born with a heart defect may always be that way, etc.). BUT, we are ALL born with spiritual genetics in addition to our physical genetics. Yes, a person can be passed on such and such a personality. BUT, any person can overcome the spiritual genetics of their fathers. A person CAN. I repeat: A PERSON CAN OVERCOME THE SPIRITUAL GENETICS OF THEIR FOREFATHERS. It's EACH person's responsibility to figure out what the spiritual sins of their parents (and grandparents, etc.) are, and then OVERCOME them. NOW, this cannot be fully done without help from God. A person can definitely come to the realization that they have a spiritual genetic problem (all humans have this, some worse than others, like the gentile groups) and decide they WANT to overcome. Then, they can seek begettal of God's Spirit (see other articles on this site or email me for help with this). God's Spirit will HELP a person's spirit to overcome. Now, many physical things can be overcome, too. But, some cannot.
Rape, bestiality (animal sex), child molestation, incest, and sex during menstruation or other vaginal bleeding are are sins that fall under the 7th commandment.
The marriage relationship between a man and his wife is a type of the symbolic marriage relationship between the Church and Christ. The Church as a body represents a bride, the spiritually genetically pure virgin, the daughter of the Most High God. Christ is the Most High God's Firstborn Son. The Son and Daughter are to marry. While there is an incest law in the law of Moses, it wasn't wrong for brother and sister to originally marry (Adam's and Eve's sons and daughters had to marry). It's scientific fact that marrying too closely within one's family causes more genetic errors, because it's more likely that both people carry the same errors. Hence, the offspring have a much greater chance of inheriting those genetic errors. My husband and I lost a son due to a genetic error. Both of our living sons inherited various pieces of genetic errors. My husband and I both have genetic errors from our families. In truth, ALL humans alive on this earth now have genetic errors, but some have more than others. My husband and I share many of the same errors. We hesitate to even have more children. But, the Church is to be a pure virgin to marry the virgin Christ. I recommend reading Ephesians 5:22-35 from the Bible before continuing on. The physical incest law in the Bible does not apply to Christ and the Church, and it's a spiritual marriage--NO physical sex involved.
The 8th commandment commands us not to steal. This is to protect people's property rights. Anything that belongs to someone should not be taken from them. This includes land, houses, any man-made thing that someone owns, a person's children (kidnapping falls under this command), a person's wife, livestock, etc. Refusal to give our tithes (10 percent) to God is also stealing (Malachi 3:8-12). Burglary, robbery, identity fraud, etc. are all sins that transgress this command. Stealing is HIGH in the United States. All the things I just mentioned under this command are things that are happening more and more in our land, and the "WHITE" people are not innocent!!! I myself was to be convicted by the United States of America (yes, I committed a federal offense) several years ago for credit card fraud across interstate lines (it involved the Internet). I was guilty as charged. Thankfully, the charges were dropped by GRACE. I was guilty, and yet I was totally let go! Praise God! But, I'd already repented before I was even arrested and then had proven it for 2.5 years before I was handed a court summons (yeah, so much for quick and speedy trial). And everyone I met along the way--Secret Service agents, US Marshals, etc.--realized I would be one of the rare ones whom they never saw again. God works the same way. Everyone has sinned. If you REPENT, then you can find grace. You must stop transgressing His law.
The 9th commandment commands us not to bear false witness against our neighbor. This means we don't accuse our neighbor of doing something that he didn't do or that we're not sure whether he did. It also covers lying and dishonesty. It covers not breaking our promises (vows), etc. We have A WHOLE LOT OF THIS GOING ON! Promises are broken left and right in the U.S. Lies are rampant. And there are plenty of false witnesses and false accusers. And someone must NOT be punished for anything, unless there are 2 or 3 trustworthy witnesses to testify. Our court system is full of bribes and false witnesses. Even DNA evidence is often a false witness.
The 10th commandment commands us not to covet our neighbors' things. YES, this means everybody. We are not to look at what someone else has and wish that it was ours, whether it's a person's wife or husband, child, pet, house, car, land, etc. This doesn't mean that we cannot like and appreciate what someone else has. It just means that we need to be able to do that and still be content with what we have. This also covers wanting something sold in the marketplace. If something is at the local store that you want, that is fine and dandy. There is no sin in wanting something! The sin comes in not being content with what you have and with wanting things so badly that you can't be content without them (and if you have that problem, honestly, you will never be content. You'll just want more.)
NOW, I will go into more detail about genetics, blessings, curses, etc. in the 2nd and final part of this. Be looking for it.
