The Man and His Ten Executive Orders
Many in the past were concerned about President Obama and his executive orders. Many today are concerned about President Trump’s Executive Orders. The truth is any executive order given by a President can be revoked by the next President. They do not have full authority because they can later be revoked. Why? Because theses executive orders are not written by THE MAN-God the Father. Jesus the Son.
In the next few posts we are going to take a look at some Executive Orders by God Almighty-THE MAN. In this post we are going to look at the Ten Commandments. These executive orders can never be revoked. It does not matter if you agree with them or not. They are the final word of God Almighty.
1 And God spoke all these words, saying:
2 “I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3 You shall have no other gods before Me.
4 “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth;
5 you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me,
6 but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.
7 “You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.
8 “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work,
10 but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates.
11 For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.
12 “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the LORD your God is giving you.
13 “You shall not murder.
14 “You shall not commit adultery.
15 “You shall not steal.
16 “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
17 “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.”
Jesus took these ten executive orders and made them stricter, or in reality, explained what they really mean. Jesus said if you hate someone you have committed murder. Jesus said if you have lust you have committed adultery. Without the grace of God in our life, there is no way we can obey them. To try and obey them without God’s grace leads only to bondage. You need Jesus Christ as your Lord & Savior to obey God’s Ten Commandments. (Learn about receiving Jesus as your Lord and Savior.)
These ‘Ten Executive Orders’ are applicable to all mankind. They are applicable rather you agree with them or not. You also do not get the option of deleting some of them. (May Christians try to change the Sabbath commandment, but the only one who can change it is God and nowhere in Scripture has he changed the Seventh Day Sabbath. Take note that v8 says ‘Remember the Sabbath day’. It is the only commandment that God says specifically to remember, God must have known that man would try to forget. Notice that God blessed and hallowed the Sabbath day, no man can make another day blessed and hallowed.)
So regardless of what executive orders President Trump or Presidents after him do, what is the most important thing is to honor God Almighty’s ‘Executive Orders. In our next post we will take a look at God’s Executive Order regarding who we are to love.
