The Commandments of God are the Pearly Gates in the City of God

"It is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail" Luke 16:17.

"But the fact that a movement to establish error is connected with a work which is in itself good, is not an argument in favor of the error. We may disguise poison by mingling it with wholesome food, but we do not change its nature. On the contrary, it is rendered more dangerous, as it is more likely to be taken unawares. It is one of Satan's devices to combine with falsehood just enough truth to give it plausibility. The leaders of the Sunday movement may advocate reforms which the people need, principles which are in harmony with the Bible; yet while there is with these a requirement which is contrary to God's law, His servants cannot unite with them. Nothing can justify them in setting aside the commandments of God for the precepts of men" GC 587.1.  

The 144,000 are repairers of the WALL, which represents the LAW OF GOD. His twelve Commandments.

A breach (infraction or violation of a law, obligation, tie, or standard) has been made in the law of God. We must stand up for the honor of God and repair the breach made in the wall about God's people...the holes are the Commandments that we knowingly break. The 4th Commandment has been replaced by man's commandment to keep the first day of the week instead of the seventh day setup at the creation of this world. If the commandments of God could have been changed, the Son of God would not have had to die. God would have just changed His perfect, flawless, blameless, perpetual, Royal law to accommodate Satan and Christ would not have had to die. Think about it.

Exodus 24:10

and they saw the God of Israel; and under His feet there appeared to be a pavement of sapphire, as clear as the sky itself.

"A highway will be there, a roadway, And it will be called the Highway of Holiness. The unclean [wicked] will not travel on it, But it will be for him who walks that way, And fools will not wander on it" Isaiah 35:8.

Did you get that? Fools will not wander on the highway of Holiness, the Ten Commandments. The highway holiness is the Ten Commandments lived out in our daily little choices. Our heart is our daily little desires, our daily little choices.

"Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband of blue" Numbers 15:38.

The Law of Tassels
37The LORD also spoke to Moses, saying,38"Speak to the sons of Israel, and tell them that they shall make for themselves tasselson the corners of their garments throughout their generations, and that they shall put on the tassel of each corner a cord of blue. 39"It shall be a tassel for you to look at and remember all the commandments of the LORD, so as to do them and not follow after your own heart and your own eyes, after which you played the harlot,

Matthew 23:5
All their deeds are done for men to see. They broaden their phylacteries and lengthen their tassels.

phylacteries: either of two small square leather boxes containing slips inscribed with scriptural passages and traditionally worn on the left arm and on the head by observant Jewish men and especially adherents of Orthodox Judaism during morning weekday prayers

Isaiah 30:21
Your ears will hear a word behind you, "This is the way, walk in it," whenever you turn to the right or to the left.

Proverbs 16:17
The highway of the upright is to depart from evil; He who watches his way preserves his life.

Isaiah 4:3
It will come about that he who is left in Zion and remains in Jerusalem will be called holy-- everyone who is recorded for life in Jerusalem.

The Commandments of God were written and blue tables of stone....put fringes of blue in your garments so the blue fringe will remind you to keep the Commandments of God.


"The law of God is the foundation of his government in heaven and on earth, and those who hate that law are on the same ground as the unbelieving Jews. They will not admit the claims of that law, nor open their eyes or consciences to the evidences on this subject. In many cases they are in as hopeless a state as were the Jews in their rejection of Christ" SW July 21, 1908, par. 2.

The new commandments that sumerize the first four and the last six commandments are first found in Leviticus 19:18 and Deut. 6:5 and repeated in Matthew 22:37-40 and other verses:

"Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself" Leviticus 19:18.

"And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might" Deuteronomy 6:5

Matthew 22:37-40: 
Matthew 22:37-38 (KJV)  37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.  38 This is the first and great commandment.
TRUE LOVE TO GOD MEANS TO OBEY ALL 10 COMMANDMENTS OF GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, SOUL AND MIND! WITH EVERY FIBER OF YOUR BEING!

"There is only one path to Paradise restored,--the path of obedience" ST, January 25, 1910 par. 18. 

  • Jesus said "If ye love me, keep my commandments" John 14:15.
  • "He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him'" 1 John 2:4.
  • "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death" Revelation 21:8.
  • "For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine" 1 Timothy 1:10.
  • "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it" John 8:44.
Matthew 7:13
Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.

Matthew 7:14
But small is the gate and narrow the way that leads to life, and only a few find it.

1 Peter 1:15
But just as He who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do,

1 Peter 1:16
for it is written: "Be holy, because I am holy."

Psalm 118:20
This is the gate of the LORD; The righteous will enter through it.

There are 10 Gates into the City of God which represents the 10 Commandments. The 10 commandments are solid pearls. Each gate into the City of God is a solid pearl. Obedience to each commandment opens the solid pearly gate. Since the cross, Christ, by His Spirit, writes the Ten Commandments to your fleshy hearts desires. Your heart means your daily little choices, and by keeping all 10 Commandments and daily, moment by moment (Daniel bent his knees in prayer three times a day and we must do this too) by inviting the Spirit of Christ to dwell in your body which is to be made by Christ a living sanctuary, a living temple, a living "church" with your name written in the Book of Life in Heaven by faith. True FAITH means obedience to all 10 Commandments because the Spirit of Christ writes them to your heart, which means your daily little choices. IF we do not have the Spirit of Christ, we are "none of his" Romans 8:9; 1 Cor 15:45.

When we reject any of the 10 commandments we are rejecting entrance to the City of God through one of it's solid pearl gate! Enter the pearly Gates of Heaven through obedience to all 10 of God's perpetual, perfect converting the soul Commandments! The Spirit of Christ writes them to your hearts desires, your daily little choices if you but come to Him just as you are and ask Him to take charge of your daily little choices.

Exodus 20:8-11 describe 10 "Gates" or "Commandments":

Exodus 20:1-17 King James Version (KJV):

20 And God spake all these words, saying,

I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.

13 Thou shalt not kill.

14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.

15 Thou shalt not steal.

16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's.


Sabbath Sacredness: Day of Days, September 25:
And hallow my sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between me and you, that ye may know that I am the Lord your God. Ezekiel 20:20.
The Sabbath should be made so interesting to our families that its weekly return will be hailed with joy.
The Sabbath school and the meeting for worship occupy only a part of the Sabbath. The portion remaining to the family may be made the most sacred and precious season of all the Sabbath hours.
In the minds of the children the very thought of the Sabbath should be bound up with the beauty of natural things.... Happy the father and mother who can teach their children God's written word with illustrations from the open pages of the book of nature; who can gather under the green trees, in the fresh, pure air, to study the Word and to sing the praise of the Father above.
In pleasant weather let parents walk with their children in the fields and groves. Amid the beautiful things of nature tell them the reason for the institution of the Sabbath. Describe to them God's great work of creation. Tell them that when the earth came from His hand, it was holy and beautiful. Every flower, every shrub, every tree, answered the purpose of its Creator.... Show that it was sin which marred God's perfect work; that thorns and thistles, sorrow and pain and death, are all the result of disobedience to God. Bid them see how the earth, though marred with the curse of sin, still reveals God's goodness.
If we can cultivate within us a beauty of soul corresponding to the beauty of nature around us, there will be a blending of the divine and human agencies.
As the sun goes down, let the voice of prayer and the hymn of praise mark the close of the sacred hours and invite God's presence through the cares of the week of labor.
Thus parents can make the Sabbath, as it should be, the most joyful - FLB 274 - FLB 274.8


"Said the angel, “The axe has not been laid at the root of the tree.” Those who have indulged in the wicked passions of the heart have been fellowshipped. If God had made Brother Ross an overseer of the flock, he would have seen the evil and corruption among the people. The axe has not been laid at the root of the tree. God has not altered nor changed. He is a jealous God, and will not look upon sin now with any more allowance than He did among ancient Israel. Sin is sin. Sins have not been held forth in their sinfulness, but it has been made to appear as though sins have been lightly regarded by God" Ellen G. White, Ms3-1854 (February 12, 1854) par. 2.

Regarding the 7th Commandment: "THOU SHALT NOT COMMIT ADULTERY" Exodus 20:14. 

"I saw that the seventh commandment has been violated by some who are now held in fellowship by the church. This has brought God’s frown upon them. This sin is awful in these last days, but the church has brought God’s frown and curse upon it by regarding the sin so lightly. I saw it was an enormous sin and there have not been as vigilant efforts made as there should have been to satisfy the displeasure of God and remove His frown by taking a strict, thorough course with the offender. It has had an awful, corrupting influence upon the young. They see how lightly the sin of breaking the seventh commandment is regarded, and the one who commits this horrid sin thinks that all he has to do is to confess that he was wrong and is sorry, and he is then to have all the privileges of the house of God and be held in embrace or fellowship of the church" Ellen G. White, Ms3-1854 (February 12, 1854) par. 3.


"They have thought it was not so great a sin, but have lightly esteemed the breaking [of] the seventh commandment. This has been sufficient to remove the ark of God from the camp, if there were no other sins to cause the ark to be taken away and weaken Israel" Ellen G. WhiteMs3-1854 (February 12, 1854) par. 4.

"Those who break the seventh commandment should be suspended from the church and not have its fellowship or the privileges of the house of God" Ellen G. White,
 Ms3-1854 (February 12, 1854) par. 5.


"Said the angel, “This is not a sin of ignorance. It is a knowing sin and will receive the awful visitation of God, whether he who commits it be old or young.” Ellen G. White, Ms3-1854 (February 12, 1854) par. 6.


"Never was this sin regarded by God as being so exceedingly sinful as at the present time. Why? Because God is purifying unto Himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. It is at the very time when God is purifying this peculiar people unto Himself that [unsanctified] individuals step in among us. Notwithstanding the straight truths they have heard, the terrors of the Word of God set before them, and all the blazing truth for these last days calculated to arouse Israel—they sin with a high hand, give way to all the loose passions of the carnal heart, gratify their animal propensities, disgrace the cause of God, and then confess they have sinned and are sorry! And the church receives them and says “Amen” to their prayers and exhortations, which are a stink in the nostrils of God and cause His wrath to come upon the camp. He will not dwell in their assemblies. Those who move on thus heedlessly, plastering over these sins, will be left to their own ways, to be filled with their own doings" Ellen G. White, Ms3-1854 (February 12, 1854) par. 7.

"Those who anciently committed these sins were taken without the camp and stoned to death. Temporal and eternal death was their doom; and because the penalty of stoning to death is abolished, this sin is indulged in beyond measure, and is thought to be a small offense" Ellen G. White, Ms3-1854 (February 12, 1854) par. 8.


The reason why Jesus rested on the Seventh day: "He was laying the foundation of a divine institution, the memorial of His own great work. And God blessed the Seventh day and sanctified it. HIS RESTING UPON IT WAS TO LAY THE FOUNDATION IMPLIES THAT HE DELIGHTED IN THE ACT WHICH LAID THE FOUNDATION FOR THE MEMORIAL OF HIS GREAT WORK. HIS RESTING UPON IT WAS TO LAY THE FOUNDATION OF BLESSING AND SANCTIFICATION FOR HIS PEOPLE" J. N. AndrewsThe History of the Sabbath and First Day of the Week, Third Edition

J. N. Andrews, page 15, 1887.

"In 1846, on a visit to New Bedford, Mass., I became acquainted with Bro. Joseph Bates. He was keeping the Sabbath, and urged its importance. I did not feel its importance, and thought that Bro. B. erred in dwelling upon the fourth commandment more than the other nine. But the Lord gave me a vision. I was conducted to the second vail. It was lifted, and I beheld the ark, and on it the mercy-seat. Jesus raised the cover of the ark, and I beheld the tables of stone on which the ten commandments were written. I was amazed as I saw the fourth commandment. A halo of glory was all around it; for it was the only one of the ten which points out to man who the living God is, the maker of heaven and earth" [Is the Sabbath an integral part of our message? It wasnʼt accepted until 1846.] 2 Spiritual Gifts, page 82 (emphasis supplied). Source here and here

Obedience to the Fourth Commandment IS The Third Angel's (Rev 14:9-12) Message in Verity.--Several have written to me, inquiring if the message of justification (righteousness) by faith is the third angel's message, and I have answered, “It is the third angel's message in verity (truth).” -- Review and Herald, April 1, 1890. {Ev 190.3} 

Quiet cheerful obedience to the 7th day Sabbath from Friday sundown to Saturday sundown is a sign of the power of Christ IN You. Delight in obedience to the 4th Commandmentment makes you holy, cleanses you from sin and hallows your sacred body temple for the indwelling / habitation of the Holy Spirit. We want the Holy Spirit which is Jesus Christ.

This message was to bring more prominently before the world the uplifted Saviour, the sacrifice for the sins of the whole world. It presented justification (declared innocent, holy and righteous) through faith in the Surety; it invited the people to receive the Righteousness of Christ, which is made manifest in obedience to all the commandments of God.

Look at the Ten Commandments below for a second. Study them. Look at the shape of them, written on two stones. They look just like gates. If you imagine hinges on the two outer edges, you can walk right through the two swinging doors. These are the doors into the mind of God! INTO the City of God! Jesus IS the gate/door.

"I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture" John 10:9.

"But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it" Matthew 7:14.

"A highway will be there, a roadway, And it will be called the Highway of Holiness. The unclean will not travel on it, But it will be for him who walks that way, And fools will not wander on it" Isaiah 35:8.

"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many enter through it (Galatians 5:19-21)" Matthew 7:13.

"Enter into his gates (obedience to the 10 Commandments!) with thanksgiving, and into his courts (His work: believing John 6:29) with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name" Psalm 100:4.

"Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent" John 6:29.

Our "work" is to believe in the Son of God. If we believe, we obey His commands. We are happy and delighted in obeying His slightest wish. "Don't you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey--whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?" Romans 6:16. "Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law" 1 John 3:4. If you are born again, you CANNOT SIN! Yes! It's true! God said it and I believe it! Here:

"Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sinbecause he is born of God" 1 John 3:9 KJV.

"He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him" 1 John 2:4.

Jesus says "I AM THE TRUTH" John 14:6. The Bible says "THY LAW IS TRUTH" Psalm 119:142.

Jesus IS the LAW of GOD IN US! Jesus is the law of God fully manifested to us, and we fully manifest the law of God when we have the Spirit of the Son of God living inside of us. Written today, on the fleshy tables of our hearts, our daily little choices, after the cross, because Jesus became THEN, 2,000 years ago, BECAME a quickening Spirit that was blended, both human and divine life giving Spirit per 1 Cor 15:45:

"And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit" 1 Cor 15:45 KJV.

The Holy Spirit is the visible manifestation of Jesus Christ living in us. Living in our daily choices. Helping us to obey the 10 Commandments of God! We are, our completely surrendered body, is to be the house of God, a house of prayer, the body temple that is made without hands for the Spirit of Christ and His Father to dwell in:

"But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his" Romans 8:9 KJV.

"And ye are Christ's; and Christ is God's" 1 Corinthians 3:23.

"What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's" 
1 Corinthians 6:19-20.

"Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory (honor) of God" 1 Corinthians 10:31
.

So, if we do NOT have the Spirit of Christ in us, we are NONE of Christ's! Remember? We are servants of whom we obey!  "Don't you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey--whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?" Romans 6:16. 

If we obey Satan, we manifest his character. If we obey Christ, we manifest His character!

Christ's 10 character traits: "love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, m
eekness, temperance" Gal 5:22-23; 
(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)" Ephesians 5:9. 

Satan's character traits: If we are manifesting Satan's character traits, "Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God (which is the blended human and divine "Spirit of Christ" per Roman 8:9 His presence and power living in us)" Gal 19:20-21. 

If we are manifesting any of these character traits we are manifesting evil, wicked, heathen demon Spirits and must fall down upon our knees and beg God in the name of His Son to remove these inherited and cultivated tendencies toward evil from our daily choices. God is our helper if we call upon Him in the name of His Son. See a sample prayer to pray below.

The Captain of our Salvation (JESUS) is interceding for His people, not as a petitioner to move the Father to compassion, but as a ConquerorWho claims the trophies of His victoryHe is able to save to the uttermost all who come to God by HimMake this fact very plain!

This message (Rev 14:9-12) was to bring more prominently before the world the uplifted Saviour, the sacrifice for the sins of the whole world. It presented justification (declared innocent, holy and righteous) through faith in the Surety; it invited the people to receive the Righteousness of Christ, which is made manifest in obedience to all the commandments of God.

Jesus says, "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest" (Matt. 11:28). Then why not cast aside all unbelief and heed the words of Jesus? You want rest; you long for peace. 

Then say from the heart, pray, "Lord Jesus, I come, because Thou hast given me this invitationChrist died to save me. The Lord's desire is that I should be saved, and I will come to Jesus just as I am without delay. I will venture upon the promise. As Christ draws me, I will respond. Take me, O Lord, as wholly Thine. I lay all my plans at Thy feet. Use me today in Thy service. Abide with me, and let all my work be wrought in Thee. Lord, if I am to be a channel through which thy love is to flow day by day and hour by hour, I claim by faith the grace and power that thou hast promised. Say, I come to present myself to God in the name of him who has died for me. I give my heart (desires/our little daily choices) to Jesus, and I desire his blessing and his Spirit;" and the power of God will come upon you. I have done as Thou hast said. I present Thy Promise, "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. Lord, help me to do my best. Teach me how to do better work. Give me energy and cheerfulness. Help me to bring into my service the loving ministry of the Saviour. You know I cannot do this work in my own strength. You must work in me, and by me and through me, sanctifying my tongue, sanctifying my spirit, sanctifying my words, and bringing me into a position where my spirit shall be susceptible to the movings of the Holy Spirit of God upon my mind and character. Let the latter rain come into my vessel. Let the light of the glorious angel which unites with the third angel shine upon me; give me a part in the work; let me sound the proclamation; let me be a colabourer with Jesus Christ.

Claim/present/invoke/pray this powerful verse (Luke 21:15) while fixing your mind on Jesus in the Most Holy Place in the Heavenly Sanctuary in the Third HeavenAs the believer bows in supplication (the action of asking or begging for something earnestly or humbly) before God, and in humility and contrition offers his petition from unfeigned (genuine; sincere) lips, keeping his eyes fixed steadily on the Mediator of the new covenant (Spirit of Christwriting the 10 Commandments to our daily choices), he loses all thought of self. His mind is filled with the thought of what he must have in order to build up a Christlike character. He prays, “Lord, if I am to be a channel through which thy love is to flow day by day and hour by hour, I claim by faith the grace and power that thou hast promised." He fastens his hold firmly on the promise, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering.”


Help me Lord Jesus today, to manifest your character traits today, right now, instead of Satan's character traits, the 10 fruits of your character traits which are the 10 "GATES" or 10 "Commandments" into the City of God which are:

The Bride of Christ and the Guests Wedding Garment that is woven in the loom of Heaven:
  1. love
  2. joy
  3. peace
  4. longsuffering
  5. gentleness
  6. goodness (the goodness of God is in His GIVING us His Son Jesus to become both human and divine - "Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance? Romans 2:4. IF we despise the law of God we are despising Jesus!)
  7. faith (is obedience to all 10 laws of God and His prophets Acts 24:14)
  8. meekness (means "quiet cheerful obedience!")
  9. temperance
  10. all goodness
  11. righteousness (Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear." (Fine linen (wedding garment) stands for the righteous acts (obedience to the law of God) of God's holy people.) Revelation 19:8)
  12. truth  (Jesus says "I AM THE TRUTH" John 14:6. The Bible says "THY LAW IS TRUTH" Psalm 119:142.)

THE 10 Commandments:



Mathew 22:37-40 describe the other 2 gates or Commandments, these are first found in Deuteronomy 6:5 and Leviticus 19:18:

Leviticus 19:18 "Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the Lord."

"And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might" Deuteronomy 6:5Check out all the cross references on this page for Deuteronomy 6:5 here.

"Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets Matthew 22:37-40 (KJV).

Jesus was simply repeating in Mathew 22:39 what He had told the children of Israel already in Leviticus 19:18 "Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the Lord.", here:

Jesus said, "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another" John 13:34. The reason it was "new" is because Jesus did this to us by sacrificing Himself totally for us - He was born again into this world as a Son of Man, blending Himself as the Son of God into the human body that His Father had prepared for Him per Hebrews 10:5 "a body thou hast prepared for me". Now, Christ was in a NEW SENSE the Son of God, both human and Divine! Just as we are to be blended with Divinity, so we become Divine and Human combined through the manifestation of the Spirit of Christ dwelling inside of our human body, which is a "temple" or "church" that is made without hands for the express purpose of housing the Spirit of Christ and His Father (John 14:23) in this world. So Christ can be manifested THROUGH us to others. 


"At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and in youJohn 14:20.

"It is because of Him that you are IN Christ Jesus, who has been become for us wisdom from God: our righteousness, holiness, and redemption" 1 Corinthians 1:30.

Jesus said He is NOT come to destroy the law but to fulfill it! This is because when we invite the Spirit of Christ into our hearts - our hearts mean our desires, our daily desires, our little daily choices - The Spirit of Christ writes the law of God to our thoughts, words and actions. It was first written in stone on Mount Sinai by the finger of God and today it is to be written to our fleshy hearts by the Spirit of Christ dwelling in our body temple. We receive this most precious gift by simply coming to Christ. Accepting Christ as our peace. When we love Him we  obey Him. Jesus said, "If ye love me keep my commandments" John 14:15. Click here to see a long list of Bible verses just like this one. To "LOVE" God means to "OBEY" Him. To obey all His Commandments. "If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love" John 15:10.

"O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever!" Deuteronomy 5:29. "Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man" Ecclesiastes 12:13.

"Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God" 1 John 3:9 KJV.

Jesus says, "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest" (Matt. 11:28). Then why not cast aside all unbelief and heed the words of Jesus? You want rest; you long for peace. 

Then say, pray fervently, plead from the heart, pray, "Lord Jesus, I come, because Thou hast given me this invitationChrist died to save me. The Lord's desire is that I should be saved, and I will come to Jesus just as I am without delay. I will venture upon the promise. As Christ draws me, I will respond. Take me, O Lord, as wholly Thine. I lay all my plans at Thy feet. Use me today in Thy service. Abide with me, and let all my work be wrought in Thee. Lord, if I am to be a channel through which thy love is to flow day by day and hour by hour, I claim by faith the grace and power that thou hast promised. Say, I come to present myself to God in the name of him who has died for me. I give my heart (desires/our little daily choices) to Jesus, and I desire his blessing and his Spirit;" and the power of God will come upon you. I have done as Thou hast said. I present Thy Promise, "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. Lord, help me to do my best. Teach me how to do better work. Give me energy and cheerfulness. Help me to bring into my service the loving ministry of the Saviour. You know I cannot do this work in my own strength. You must work in me, and by me and through me, sanctifying my tongue, sanctifying my spirit, sanctifying my words, and bringing me into a position where my spirit shall be susceptible to the movings of the Holy Spirit of God upon my mind and character. Let the latter rain come into my vessel. Let the light of the glorious angel which unites with the third angel (Rev. 14:9-12) shine upon me; give me a part in the work; let me sound the proclamation; let me be a colabourer with Jesus Christ.

Matthew 5:17-20 (KJV):

17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.




The REASON it is SO important to KNOW, UNDERSTAND and obey (Jer 9:24, John 17:3) the TWELVE COMMANDMENTS is because they are the 10 GATES into the CITY OF GOD! These 10 pearly Commandments represent 10 pearly gates into the City of God! 3 gates on the West side, 3 gates on the South Side, 3 gates on the East side and 3 gates on the North side, 12 gates in all. Each Commandment represents a PEARL. A pearly gate. So if you keep ALL 10 Commandments ALL 10 gates open to you to enter the City of God. The only way we can be enabled to obey all 10 Commandments is by the Spirit of Christ dwelling in our body temple/house/church and writing ALL 10 of His Father's Commandments to our "fleshy heart". Our heart means our desires, our little daily choices! Christ helps us, enables us to desire the will or choices of God to be our choices too! It is SO important to have a RIGHT SPIRIT, the Spirit of Christ, the Holy Spirit of Christ and not some other Spirit dwelling inside of our bodies!

Pray, 'You know I cannot do this work in my own strength. You must work in me, and by me and through me, sanctifying my tongue, sanctifying my spirit, sanctifying my words, and bringing me into a position where my spirit shall be susceptible to the movings of the Holy Spirit of God upon my mind and character".

If Christ's soldiers look faithfully to their Captain for their orders, success will attend their warfare against the enemy. No matter how they may be beset, in the end they will be triumphant. Their infirmities may be many, their sins great, their ignorance seemingly insurmountable; but if they realize their weakness, and look to Christ for aid, He will be their efficiency.... If they avail themselves of His power, their characters will be transformed; they will be surrounded with an atmosphere of light and holiness. Through His merits and imparted power they will be “more than conquerors.” Supernatural help will be given them, enabling them in their weakness to do the deeds of omnipotence.... HP 252.4

By faith they are to look calmly upon every foe, exclaiming: “We fight the good fight of faith, under the command of an omnipotent Power. Because He lives, we shall live also. Through Jesus ... we may withstand all the fiery darts of the enemy.” HP 252.5

All may come to Him, and receive of His fullness. He says, "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest" (Matt. 11:28). Then why not cast aside all unbelief and heed the words of Jesus? You want rest; you long for peace. Then say from the heart, "Lord Jesus, I come, because Thou hast given me this invitation." Believe in Him with steadfast faith, and He will save you. Have you been looking unto Jesus, who is the author and finisher of your faith? Have you been beholding Him who is full of truth and grace? Have you accepted the peace which Christ alone can give? If you have not, then yield to Him, and through His grace seek for a character that will be noble and elevated. Seek for a constant, resolute, cheerful spirit. Feed on Christ (feed your soul with the law of God and His Statues = Bible verse promises and commands = learn them and do all 12 of them!), who is the bread of life, and you will manifest His loveliness of character and spirit.

Let us all have confidence in God. Press your way through the shadow which Satan throws across your pathway and take hold of the arm of Jesus, the Mighty One. Let your case rest in His hands. Let your prayer be, “Lord (Adoni - Sovereign King), I present my petition to Thee. I put my trust in Thee, and I ask for the Blessing that Thou seest will be for my present and future usefulness and my eternal good.”                                                                                               
 
When you arise from your knees, believe! When the enemy comes with his darkness, sing faith and talk faith, and you will find that you have sung and talked yourself into the Light. “Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice !” (Philippians 4:4). Those who do this have a joyous life. No unpleasantness comes from their lips or from the atmosphere surrounding the soul, for they do not feel that they are better than others.

John 6:37 "Him that cometh UNTO me I will in NO WISE cast out"!

The message from God to me for you is 'Him that cometh unto me, I will in no wise cast out' (John 6:37). If you have nothing else to plead before God but this one promise from your Lord and Saviour, you have the assurance that you will never, never be turned away. It may seem to you that you are hanging upon a single promise, but appropriate (suitable or proper in the circumstances) that one promise, and it will open to you the whole treasure house of the riches of the grace of Christ. Cling to that promise and you are safe. 'Him that cometh unto me I will in no wise cast out.' Present this assurance to Jesus, and you are as safe as though inside the city of God.

Where is Jesus right now? He is in the Most Holy Place (Throne room/bridal chamber) in the Heavenly Sanctuary in the Third Heaven mediating on our behalf. Jesus is our ONLY Mediator, our only "attorney". He is our claim representative. We must start a claim in the Throne Room of God Himself in the name of Jesus our "attorney", "claim representative" by bringing God into remembrance of His exceedingly great and precious Bible verse promises! 

Claiming Bible verse promises is like picking leaves off of the tree of life that is in the City of God and being healed of our sins and diseases forever by faith in the Word of God, which is the Spirit of Jesus indwelling inside of our minds, our thoughts, our words, our actions, which determines our eternal destiny, eternal life given to us through Christ, NOT SOMEONE ELSE!!! Did you know there is "ANOTHER JESUS" we are warned against receiving? Most people don't know there are TWO JESUS' and one is a false Christ, the anti-Christ and the other is the one and only TRUE JESUS! Learn more about "another Jesus" here.

The NEW COVENANT means that the 10 Commandments are written to our heart of flesh, our daily desires (our daily little choices) by the Spirit of Christ indwelling in our body. Christ never forces us. He gives us the freedom to choose or reject Hi, to choose or reject His Father's law, the 10 Commandments and His Statues.

(the "faith of Jesus" is "being born again... by the word of God. The Spirit of Christ," Jesus (our Creator, the Son of God--"God with us"--who "shall save his people from their sins") abiding within, who works his works of commandment-keeping righteousness, truth, grace, and love)

 


"In the Lord have I righteousness  and strength" Isaiah 45:24.

The New Jerusalem
"…10 The city had a great and high wall with twelve gates inscribed with the names of the twelve tribes of Israel, and twelve angels at the gates. 13 There were three gates on the east, three on the north, three on the south, and three on the west. 14 The wall of the city had twelve foundations bearing the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.…Revelation 21:12-14.

"Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they Image result for leaves with bible verse promisesmay have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city" Revelation 22:14.

"Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name" Psalm 100:4.

"O praise the Lord, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people. For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the Lord endureth for ever. Praise ye the Lord" Psalm 117 (KJV).

Bible verse promises represent the leaves on the tree of life. It is like picking leaves off of the tree of life and eating them for our healing from sin and disease. We are to claim them, present them by FAITH to God in the name of His Son in the Third Heaven in the Throne room of God. Learn more about how to do that here.





OBEDIENCE TO THE TWELVE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD ARE THE PEARLY GATES WE ENTER INTO THE CITY OF GOD:

Exodus 20King James Version (KJV)

20 And God spake all these words, saying,

I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

12 Commandments of God pearly white gates teeth

1Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
                                            "ME" is singular, not plural. 1+1+1=3 not 1. Even bad math!)

2Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate (disobey) me;

And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

3Thou shalt not take the name (Word of God Rev 19:13) of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name  (Word of God Rev 19:13) in vain.

The 7th Day Sabbath Message is like NOAH'S ARK for us today. COME! COME! INTO THE TRUE 7th DAY SABBATH REST, THE ARK OF TRUTH AND BE SAVED for ETERNITY! Revelation 11:7 Now when they have finished their testimony (like Noah, saying come into the Ark and be saved, the 144,000 proclaim the Sabbath more fully and the truth about God and His Son, Isaiah 58:12/ Malachi 4:5 restoring the old paths), the beast that comes up from the Abyss (the 8th King Pope Francis and 501c3 Protestant church leaders in USA) will attack them, and overpower and kill them like the church leaders attacked and killed 11 of the 12 apostles of Christ.


4Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. 

Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

5 12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.

6 13 Thou shalt not kill.

7 14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.

8 15 Thou shalt not steal.

9 16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

10 17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's.

James 1:25  “But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.”

I saw that God had children who do not see and keep the Sabbath. They have not rejected the light upon it. And at the commencement of the time of trouble, we were filled with the Holy Ghost as we went forth and proclaimed the Sabbath more fully.

Matthew 22:37-40King James Version (KJV)

11 37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. [Mark 12:30; Luke 10:27]

38 This is the first and great commandment.

12 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

"But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets" Acts 24:14 (KJV).

New Name written down in glory book of life The Lord is There Ezekiel 48 35
Ecclesiastes 12:13-14King James Version (KJV)

13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.

14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

Deuteronomy 4:2
"You shall not add to the word which I am commanding you, nor take away from it, that you may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.

Deuteronomy 6:2
so that you and your son and your grandson might fear the LORD your God, to keep all His statutes and His commandments which I command you, all the days of your life, and that your days may be prolonged.

Proverbs 3 (KJV):

3 My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart (desires our daily little choices) keep my commandments:

2 For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.

3 Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:

4 So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.

5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding (Job 28:28). Understanding means to depart from evil. To walk on the highway of holiness. Fools will not wander on this highway.

6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.

8 It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.

9 Honour the Lord with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:

10 So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.

11 My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord; neither be weary of his correction:

12 For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.

13 Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding 
(Job 28:28).

14 For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold.

15 She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.

16 Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour.

17 Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.

18 She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.

19 The Lord by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.

20 By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew.

21 My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion:

22 So shall they be life unto thy soul, and grace to thy neck.

23 Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble.

24 When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.

25 Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh.

26 For the Lord shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.

27 Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.

28 Say not unto thy neighbour, Go, and come again, and to morrow I will give; when thou hast it by thee.

29 Devise not evil against thy neighbour, seeing he dwelleth securely by thee.

30 Strive not with a man without cause, if he have done thee no harm.

31 Envy thou not the oppressor, and choose none of his ways.

32 For the froward is abomination to the Lord: but his secret is with the righteous.

33 The curse of the Lord is in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the just.

34 Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace unto the lowly.

35 The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the promotion of fools.

"Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy life shall be many" Proverbs 4:10 (KJV).

"Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh. Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life" Proverbs 4:21-23 (KJV).


"Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee. Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee" Proverbs 4:24-25(KJV).

"This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success" Joshua 1:8 (KJV).



Deuteronomy 10:12
"Now, Israel, what does the LORD your God require from you, but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all His ways and love Him, and to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul,

"Only fear the LORD and serve Him in truth with all your heart; for consider what great things He has done for you.

Job 28:28
"And to man He said, 'Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; And to depart from evil is understanding.'"

Psalm 111:10
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding (departing from evil Job 28:28) have all those who do His commandments; His praise endures forever.

Proverbs 1:7
The fear (knowlege) of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; Fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Ecclesiastes 2:3
I explored with my mind how to stimulate my body with wine while my mind was guiding me wisely, and how to take hold of folly, until I could see what good there is for the sons of men to do under heaven the few years of their lives.

Ecclesiastes 3:14
I know that everything God does will remain forever; there is nothing to add to it and there is nothing to take from it, for God has so worked that men should fear Him.

Ecclesiastes 5:7
For in many dreams and in many words there is emptiness. Rather, fear God.


1 Corinthians 13King James Version (KJV)

13 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity (obedience to God's 10 laws and His Statues) , I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity (obedience to God's 10 laws and His Statues), I am nothing.

And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity (obedience to God's 10 laws and His Statues), it profiteth me nothing.

Charity  (obedience) suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;

Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

Charity  (obedience to God's 10 laws and His Statues) never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity (charity is love, true love to God is obedience to all His 10 Commandments and His Statutes), these three; but the greatest of these is charity (obedience to God's 10 laws and His Statues) .

The teachers of divine truth should carefully study the life of Christ, and the practical lessons he taught on true godliness and right living for all who should believe on his name. They should be imbued with the spirit of their great Example, and have a high sense of the sacred life of a follower of Christ. Here is a field of study for the Bible student that he cannot possibly beinterested in without having the Spirit of the divine Teacher in his own heart. Here are subjects which Christ presented to all classes; and thousands of people of every stamp of character, of every grade of society, were attracted and charmed with the matter brought before them. SW July 21, 1908, par. 7


The truth of God is plain and conclusive. It is harmonious, and in contrast with error shines with clearness and beauty. Its consistency commends it to every heart that is not filled with prejudice. The Sacred Book, inspired by God, and written by holy men, is a perfect standard of doctrine and character, and a guide under all circumstances of life. It sets forth distinctly the duties of both old and young. If it is allowed to influence the life, its teachings will lead the soul upward. It will elevate the mind, improve the character, and give peace and joy to the heart. SW July 21, 1908, par. 8

The days are evil, wickedness prevails; therefore there is the greater need that Christ should now be faithfully represented to the world as a mighty Saviour, able to save unto the uttermost all that come unto God by him. The men and women whom we daily meet are judgment-bound. They will either live to offer praise to God and the Lamb through ceaseless ages, or they will perish with the wicked. Christ suffered and died that they might enjoy a blissful eternity. What sacrifices are we willing to make for their salvation? SW July 21, 1908, par. 9
