enable me name your awareness to the truth that God wrote at the tables of stone at Sinai in addition to at the wall of Belshazzar’s palace.
These are the one messages to males that God has written together with his personal hand. He wrote the commandments out two times, and spoke them aloud within the listening to of Israel.
If it have been identified that God Himself used to be going to talk once more to guy, what eagerness and pleasure there will be. for almost nineteen hundred years He has been silent. No encouraged message has been additional to the Bible for almost nineteen hundred years. How eagerly all males could pay attention if God should still converse once again. but males overlook that the Bible is God’s personal notice, and that it's as really His message to-day as while it was once added of previous. The legislation that used to be given at Sinai has misplaced none of its solemnity. Time can't put on out its authority or the very fact of its authorship.
I can think a few one saying—“I won’t be weighed by way of that legislations. I don’t think in it.”
Now males may well cavil up to they prefer approximately different components of the Bible, yet i have not met a decent guy that came across fault with the 10 Commandments. Infidels may well mock the Lawgiver and reject Him who has introduced us from the curse of the legislation, yet they can’t aid admitting that the commandments are correct. Renan stated that they're for all international locations, and may stay the commandments of God in the course of all of the centuries.
If God created this global, He needs to make a few legislation to control it. in an effort to make lifestyles secure we should have stable legislation; there's not a rustic the sunlight shines upon that doesn't own legislation. Now this can be God’s legislations. It has come from on excessive, and infidels and skeptics need to admit that it truly is natural. Legislatures approximately worldwide undertake it because the origin in their felony systems.
“The legislations of the Lord is ideal, changing the soul: the testimony of the Lord is natural, making clever the straightforward: the statutes of the Lord are correct, rejoicing the guts: the commandment of the Lord is natural, enlightening the eyes.”
Now the query for you and me is—are we retaining those commandments? Have we fulfilled all of the requisites of the legislation? If God made us, as we all know He did, He had a correct to make that legislations; and if we don’t use it aright it is going to were higher for us if we had by no means had it, for it's going to condemn us. we will be discovered short of. The legislation is okay, yet are we right?
