The 6th Commandment
- You Shall Not Murder -
"Whoever sheds man's blood, By man his blood shall be shed, For in the image of God He made man” (Genesis 9:6). “If a man takes the life of any human being, he shall surely be put to death” (Leviticus 24:17). YAHshua says, “You have heard that the ancients were told, ‘You shall not commit murder’ and “Whoever commits murder shall be liable to the court.’ But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother shall be guilty before the court…” (Matthew 5:21-22). “Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer; and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him” (1 John 3:15). So, anyone who has harbored anger in his or her hearts against someone is guilty of committing murder. “Be angry, and yet do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and do not give the devil an opportunity” (Ephesians 4:26-27). This is so important because the enemy will capitalize. YAHshua (Jesus) is love and “In your anger do not sin.” He give us the hours of the day— so don’t let the sun go down on your anger. You have got to deal with it and work it out.
The enemy will come and bring all kinds of spiritual maladies and issues such as bitterness, resentment and it will open you up for the enemy to have a legal right into your life and cause havoc and curses to come upon you. Work it out with YAHshua and repent for those feelings and forgive because YAHshua (Jesus) forgave you. Get this sin under the blood so you can love and not allow the enemy to have an inroad for his dark, hateful, murderous thoughts and feelings. “Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry because human anger does not produce the righteousness that YAHveh (the LORD) desires” (James 1:19-20). "But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers … their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death" (Revelation 21:8). We must learn to love as YAHshua himself loved - otherwise, sin is lurking around the corner.

Adultery is more than merely a physical sin. It is also forsaking YAHshua, our soon-coming Bridegroom. It is lusting for the things of this world because He alone is not enough for us, because we do not “love Him with all our hearts, souls, spirits, and minds." Indeed, we are adulterers if we do not wholeheartedly love and obey the Most High who gave us His righteous Commandments.

Want to learn even more about Yahveh's holy Ten Commandment? Check out Terrye G. Seedman's book "Redefining the Feasts of Israel Through the Ten Commandments." The Holy Days pivot around the Ten Commandments, these were appointed times to meet with Him that would help them to walk by His spirit’s leading in these Commandments. Indeed, there would be no feasts if it was not for the Ten Commandments and the penalty of sin for not upholding them and there would be no need of Messiah. The Ten Commandments point us to Him and YAHshua the schoolmaster points us to the truth so we can walk in a way worthy of everything that He has taught us to be. “Not of the letter but of the Spirit. For the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.” (2 Corinthians 3:6) This book unlocks truths from Yahveh's divine Ten Commandments to redefine the true meaning and fulfillment of the holy Feasts of Israel. Simply, the divinely appointed times, the feast days, pivot around the blood on the altar of sacrifice—on the mercy seat, for the forgiveness of sin and sin points us back to the Commandments. Therefore every feast is exalting the Commandments of YAHveh, exalting our Lamb who came and died because we can’t uphold the Commandments without His help. They are inextricably linked. You can’t separate the feasts from the Commandments and you cannot separate the Lamb of God who is the ultimate fulfillment of the holy temple, priesthood, and the sacrificial system’s substitutionary sacrifice for our sin nature. Learn all of this and more in this powerful book about Yahveh's divine commandments and holy feasts.
