adam-and-eveThe serpent put doubt in the mind of Eve. Doubt about God’s intention as to where He was trying to take humanity on their Journey which started at in the beginning. So “when the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and desirable for gaining wisdom, she took and ate. She also gave some to her husband. Therefore violating God’s divine law” which stated “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.” Gen 2:16-17 (KJV)

One law, one transgression and they violated that one and the penalty was “you will surely die.” Six thousand years later we have ten laws that God has given us to keep and “whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all. For He who said, “Do not commit adultery,” also said, “Do not murder.” Now if you do not commit adultery, but you do murder, you have become a transgressor of the law., James 2:10-13 (KJV)

But our High Priest sympathizes with our weaknesses [in transgressing God’s law in all areas of our life because He was] tempted in all point as we10-Commandments-final are, yet without sin.” Heb. 4:14-15 “Therefore, Paul tells us in Rom 12:1-2 (NIV) [we must] offer our bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is our true and proper worship [and] not to “conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of our mind. Then we will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” Rom 12:1-2 (NIV)

My friends what that text is telling us, if we have not transformed our minds and allowed our bodies to become a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God. But have conformed to the pattern of this world we will not be able to know what the will of God is and with out knowing and understanding His will then we have no problem breaking any of God’s laws.

Therefore putting other gods before Jehovah is no problem, lying is no problem, adultery is no problem, keeping the Sabbath holy is no problem. My friends, none of the commandments will we have a problem with because the “accuser of the brethren” has given us his own law according to Satan and according to his law we will not surly die.

s061But the true reality is, “Whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.” Matt 5:18-19 (ESV) Christ also tells us If ye love me, keep my commandments.” John 14:15 (NKJV)

So the question we must ask ourselves do we love God enough to give Him our all and keep all of His commandments? Mrs. E. G. Whites says “I love Him because I have proved Him, and I know that He will do all that He has promised to do. He gave His life for me, and I have given all that I have to Him.” And Friends, that must be our mission statement that we have given Him our all because He gave His all for us.
