Summary: Modern Society Mocks The Truth And Exalts The Lie. We Live In A Time When Right Is Classified As Wrong And Wrong As Right. Many People Believe That There Are No "Moral Absolutes."

Today, We Begin A Series On The Ten Commandments.

Modern Society Mocks The Truth And Exalts The Lie.

We Live In A Time When Right Is Classified As Wrong And Wrong As Right. Many People Believe That There Are No "Moral Absolutes." This Is Reflected In Statements Like:"What’s Right For You May Not Be Right For Me.";"If It Feels Good Do It.";"Anything Goes.";"Nothing Is Right Or Wrong, There Are Just Different Opinions?"

Our Nation Was Founded On Biblical Principles .Today, That Foundation Is Crumbling Beneath Our Feet!

James Madison, The 4th President Of The United States Said "We Stake The Future Of This Country On Our Ability To Govern Ourselves Under The Principles Of The Ten Commandments."

Let’s Look At The Background Of The Ten Commandments And Why They Were Given.

"Why Did God Send The Israelites To Egypt For 400 Years (Genesis 15:13)?"

Genesis 15:13 (NIV)13 Then The LORD Said To Him, “Know For Certain That For Four Hundred Years Your Descendants Will Be Strangers In A Country Not Their Own And That They Will Be Enslaved And Mistreated There.

The Israelites Entered Egypt Under The Best-Possible Of Circumstances. They Were Delivered From A Great Drought, In Their Own Homeland, Into The Well-Watered Nile Delta Region, Known As "Goshen," One Of Their Own Was The Actual Ruler Of The Country (See Joseph, Prime Minister Of Egypt) And The Israelites Were Blessed To Be Living In Egypt.

Exodus 1:6-10 (NIV)

6 Now Joseph And All His Brothers And All That Generation Died, 7 But The Israelites Were Exceedingly Fruitful; They Multiplied Greatly, Increased In Numbers And Became So Numerous That The Land Was Filled With Them.

8 Then A New King, To Whom Joseph Meant Nothing, Came To Power In Egypt. 9 “Look,” He Said To His People, “The Israelites Have Become Far Too Numerous For Us. 10 Come, We Must Deal Shrewdly With Them Or They Will Become Even More Numerous And, If War Breaks Out, Will Join Our Enemies, Fight Against Us And Leave The Country.”

Remember The Is Had Been In Slavery For The Past 400 Years- - Think Back 400 Years Of Your Own Family History-What Do You Know About It? Now You May Know Back To 100 Years, But 400 Years Is A Long Time!Shortly After Their Exodus From Egypt God Gave Israel The Ten Commandments. Keeping The Ten Commandments Meant More Than Just Obeying The Law. Keeping The Commandments Was Synonymous With Keeping The Covenant With God.

So Now Lets Forget About All The Movies Of The 10 Commandments We Have Seen And Look At Scripture To Interpret Scripture.

The Majority Of Christians Think Of The Ten Commandments As Being Inscribed On Tablets Of Grey Stone.

But THE TALMUD & MISHNAH- Teach That The Tablets Of The Law Were Made Of Sapphire. The Talmud And Mishnah Are Far From Being Authoritative ……….. BUT, That Does Not Mean That Everything Taught In Rabbinical Jewish Tradition Is Inaccurate. Ancient Tradition Is Especially Useful In Understanding What The Jewish People Held To On Scores Of Topics.

The Word “Talmud” Is A Hebrew Word Meaning “Learning, Instruction.” The Mishnah Or Mishna Is The First Major Written Collection Of The Jewish Oral Traditions Known As The "Oral Torah". Talmud (Literally, “Study”) Is The Generic Term For The Documents That Comment And Expand Upon The Mishnah (“Repeating”), The First Work Of Rabbinic Literature.

The Talmud Is A Central Text Of Mainstream Judaism And Consists Primarily Of Discussions And Commentary On Jewish History, Law (Especially Its Practical Application To Life), Customs And Culture. The Mishnah Or Mishna Is The First Major Written Collection Of The Jewish Oral Traditions Known As The "Oral Torah". It Is Also The First Major Work Of Rabbinic Literature. Scripture Itself Corroborates Much Of What The Tradition Has To Say Regarding The Sapphire Ten Commandments.

Exodus 24:9-12 (NKJV)

9 Then Moses Went Up, Also Aaron, Nadab, And Abihu, And Seventy Of The Elders Of Israel, 10 And They Saw The God Of Israel. And There Was Under His Feet As It Were A Paved Work Of Sapphire Stone, And It Was Like The Very[A] Heavens In Its Clarity. …12 Then The LORD Said To Moses, “Come Up To Me On The Mountain And Be There; And I Will Give You Tablets Of Stone, And The Law And Commandments Which I Have Written, That You May Teach Them.”

Moses And The Rest Of Israel’s Leadership Were Given The Profound Privilege Of Seeing God. Under God’s Feet Was Something That Appeared To Be Sapphire. It Is MOST LIKELY From This Pavement That God Carved Out The Tablets Upon Which He Wrote The Law As Recorded In Exodus 24:12:

The LORD Said To Moses, “Come Up To Me On The Mountain And Wait There, That I May Give You The Tablets Of Stone, With The Law And The Commandment, Which I Have Written For Their Instruction.”
