Now you might be thinking, why not or why should I or these laws are out dated, or the law was abolished.
What can we or me do about raising the national need for keeping the commandments, statutes and judgments of the Lord?
I have read, with great interest, an article by Brooks Alden in last month’s issue of Thy Kingdom Come—July 2019—What Really Made America Great– A voice in the wilderness came to the USA in 1831 to study America. This French historian, Alexis de Tocqueville subsequently published “democracy In America”. Tocqueville wrote: “Upon my arrival in the United States the religious aspect of the country was the first thing that struck my attention; and the longer I stayed there, the more I perceived the great political consequence resulting form this new state of things.”
“I sought for the key to the greatness and genius of America in her harbors….; in her fertile fields and boundless forests; in her rich mines and vast world commerce; in her public-school system and institutions of learning. I sought for it in democratic Congress and in her matchless Constitution.” But, “Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits flame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because America is good… and if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.”
Here is the voice in the wilderness from another country nearly 200 years ago on raising the national need for keeping the commandments, statutes and judgments of the Lord. What did Alexis de Tocqueville know back then that we have forgotten today.
Are there churches and pastors who shepherd their flock with pulpits flaming with righteousness? Where is the voice in the wilderness who will point out the need for national restoration of the administration of all God’s laws?
You can say that this a pipe dream and is impossible for any person to put into operation the statutes of national administration or enforcing the Ten Commandments, but, nowhere does it say that we can’t abide by the ten laws that God created. Is this not an unalienable right?
Have we gotten so politically correct that in Isaiah 5:20 it says, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil.” Where are the voices in the wind who stand for what is right and good and pleasing to God?
Do you want peace, health and prosperity? You can to the bookstore or a library and get man’s thoughts on these subjects or you can do what Timothy 2:15 says (FF) Exert yourself to stand approved with God, as a skillful workman, arranging in order the reason for the Truth.
Simply put, study the Bible and apply or keep every requirement of the commandments to your everyday life for spiritual peace and its specific blessing. Your actions are so much greater than words.
In closing, Jesus said, “If you love me, then you will keep my commandments.” If Jesus commandments are outdated, abolished, or done away, then domestic tranquility is simply impossible in any community. Jesus did say the greatest of all commandments is to Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, the second is like unto it: “Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.”
Will you be a voice in the wilderness and keep the Lord’s commandments, statutes and judgments?
May God Bless you and keep you safely
