The Ten Commandments are a great prescription designed for the
benefit and welfare of mankind. This prescription is the greatest
prescription of all because it is unchangeable, eternal, and powerful.
The Ten Commandments are the vital ingredients of the Bible.
They are like the Constitution of the United States of America, as
the guiding principles to govern this wonderful country and her
people righteously in order that peace and order may be established.
If followed faithfully, solemnly and with prayer, they will bring joy;
happiness, good health, long life, and even wealth. If people only
understood this truth, they would exhaust all methods to obtain and
follow this prescription.
This prescription has always been available. All the treasures of
life and the guiding principles of life are clearly written in the Bible.
The reason this prescription is so unique and powerful is because it is
inspired by God, the Creator of the Universe. It was handed down to
everyone. Jesus Christ advised us to follow faithfully and without any
precondition or reservation. When God created the human race, He
intended for man to live peacefully, to love God with all our strength,
heart, and mind, and to love one another. God made this clear to us through His words. The Ten Commandments are simple and easy to
understand. They enable us to identify God’s will.
Wouldn’t it be nice if there were no murderers, thieves, or liars?
Unfortunately, these do exist. People who exhibit these behaviors
disobey God and violate His commandments. The consequences result
in the world in which we live today.
Even though there are some people who do not know God, most
people do believe in Him. Some either don’t know His commandments
or they choose not to obey them. The Bible says that the violation
of one commandment is a violation of them all. The commandments
connect our relationship to God with our relationship to each other.
When one commandment is broken, it is disobedience to the will of
God as shown in James 2:10 “For whoever shall keep the whole law, and
yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.” Leviticus 20:22 “You shall
therefore keep all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them that the
land whither I bring you to dwell therein, spue you not out.”
It is my belief that most people want to be good and they want
to be members of the true family of God. To achieve this, they need
motivation, strong faith, and a constant reminder that following the
Ten Commandments is the way to live in order to achieve success, live
a long life, and attain happiness.
The Lord mentioned in the book of Deuteronomy 11:18-20
“Therefore shall he lay up these my words in your heart and in your Soul,
and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets
between your eyes. And you shall teach them your children, speaking of
them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way,
when thou liest down, and thou risest up. And thou shalt write them upon
the doorpost of thine house and upon thy gates.”
Sometime ago, I asked the Lord what I could do for Him. In a
mysterious way, I felt called to have this poster made with the aid of
an artist, Mr. Rodney Miller. This came after I had reviewed the Ten
Commandments. This Ten Commandment poster placed in your
home will act as an angel reminding you how important it is to obey
God’s laws so that we may be rewarded with many blessings and prove
that we truly love Him.
John 14:21 says: “He that hath my commandments, and keepeth
them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my
Father; and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.”
