Jehovah created human beings and all the other creatures on earth when we make reference from the Holy Bible and despite His purpose for man to enjoy life after death, majority of the people in the world have tilted from the will and commandments of Jehovah, our Lord of host.
For us to enter into Gods kingdom there are strict rules and parameters that every individual ought to follow that are enshrined in the Bible as follow;
“Thou shalt have no other gods before me.”
God wants what is best for you. If you put something else before Him in your life, it’s harder for him to bless you.
“Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image.”
Anything you worship more than God is a “graven image.” Cars, clothes, sports, even our jobs are dangerous things to worship because they can go away. But God will never go away, and that’s why it’s best for us to only worship Him.
“Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.”
This can mean using God’s name like a swear word, or it can mean saying you are a Christian but not living or acting like Jesus would want you to act.
“Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.”
Sunday, or the Sabbath day, is a day we can all go to church, worship God, and learn how to be better people and Christians. Keeping it holy means doing our best to remember Him throughout the day.
“Honour thy father and thy mother.”
It’s important to show our parents respect. This might look different for everyone, but we should always try to love and care for those who cared for us first.
“Thou shalt not kill.”
A simple but important rule for anyone.
“Thou shalt not commit adultery.”
Men and women make promises to each other when they are married. These promises are important, and breaking them causes deep sadness. Keeping those promises help men and women have happy marriages and happy lives.
“Thou shalt not steal.”
It is important to God that His children are honest with each other. Taking anything that doesn’t belong to you is stealing, and is against His commandment.
“Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.”
This one is about honesty. If you lie to someone, you are “bearing false witness,” and may cause harm to yourself and to others.
“Thou shalt not covet.”
To covet means to be so jealous of something someone else has that you want it desperately. Coveting makes a person miserable and keeps them from putting God first. This commandment helps keep you from falling into this bad habit.
Aside this, God also foretold as to love our neighbours as ourselves but today what do we see, a contradiction.
Now it is clear in Romans 6:23 which categorically says "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." Failure to comply with the commandments will suffer dearly as it is stated boldly in Luke 13:28
28 “There will be weeping there, and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, but you yourselves thrown out.
Lets all endeavour to do the will of Jehovah irrespective of the person you are, whether white, black, coloured. Lets put our religious differences aside and follow the principles and commandments in the Bible and not the church you attend such as Church of Christ, Church of Pentecost, Assemblies of God, SDA, Deeper Life, ICGC, Methodist, Jehovah's Witnesses,Anglican, Roman Catholic etc. We must adhere to all that God has given us. This can be done with meditations, fasting and prayers, giving a helping hand or kind evangelism to your neighbour etc.
