The 10 Commandments and the Two Witnesses
- Ecclesiastes 12:13; Deuteronomy 4:26; & Deuteronomy 30:19 -
“I Call the Heavens and the Earth as Witnesses”
“By this we know that we have come to know Him, if we keep His commandments” (1John 2:3). Twice in Deuteronomy YAHveh (the LORD) reiterated, “Regarding the giving of His Ten Commandments and statutes, I call heaven and earth as My witnesses (see Deuteronomy 4:26 and Deuteronomy 30:19).” When YAHshua (Jesus) said, “Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets [Commandments, the laws of My Father]; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill. For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished” (Matthew 5:17-18). He is saying heaven and earth are the witnesses My Father chose, and unless you get rid of them you are not going to abolish His word, His everlasting Commandments. For as much as the enemy is going to try and get rid of YAHveh, His Commandments, and His people, he is not going to be able to.
This world has become a place where the majority of people do not want any reminder of the Creator of heaven and earth. They don’t want any standard of righteousness or any indictment that they, in anyway, have to suffer discomfort by being told they are sinners. To them, there are no rules or Commandments. When we obliterate the Commandments there is no recognition of sin. If there is no sin, it nullifies the blood of the Lamb who died to give us the atoning virtue of His own holy blood to cover repentant sins. And this removes the way from humanity to ever go into YAHveh’s (the LORD’S) eternal kingdom. This is one of Satan’s most diabolical agendas, which is unfolding successfully throughout the whole world to nullify the reality of all that has been written and accomplished by our Creator, His Son our Savior, and the Spirit of Truth. With the obliterating of the Ten Commandments, Satan and his triune rulership is going to take every deceived inhabitant down in one fell swoop to his domain of eternal darkness. He is moving towards that. He is being very successful in deleting from masses of humanity, even the thought that there is a God, a Creator, and righteous standards.
People are truly calling good evil and evil good and live by whatever the god of their lives other than the one true living God dictates. This is freedom to them, what they do not know is that this is total bondage that will lead them into eternal doom where there will be such sorrow with weeping and gnashing of teeth and no hope to ever escape the wakeful torment of enduring eternal hell. The United States of America was founded on the Ten Commandments, but now it is intensely trying to get rid of every vestige, reminder, and remembrance of the One true Creator of heaven and earth and His name. In part it is working. Satan thinks he has won and that he will sit on the throne where YAHveh the living God and righteous King chose to put His name forever. He has deceived the inhabitants of the earth. He is deceived to think that he will win.
In the book of Amos YAHveh (the LORD) told Amos, "Behold, days are coming," declares the Lord YAHveh, "When I will send a famine on the land, Not a famine for bread or a thirst for water, But rather for hearing the words of the YAHveh (God)” (Amos 8:11). We must have His words hidden in our hearts so that we do not sin against Him but as already stated for the majority of people the Almighty, His Commandments, and righteous standards do not exist. King Solomon after turning from YAHveh to the worship of idols came back to his senses at the end of his life seeing that all the joys, pleasures, and self-satisfying indulgences were vanity and he concluded his final work with these words, “The conclusion, when all has been heard, is:Fear YAHveh (God) and keep His commandments, because this applies to every person (Ecclesiastes 12:13).
