Eternal Law Defined:
It is important to note that none of these Laws should be unfamiliar to you, since you have been equipped "with-knowledge". The word conscience means "with knowledge" (con=with science=knowledge). While there are 613 moral, civil, and ceremonial laws within the Law, you will be able to verify your own status as innocent or guilty with just these 10. These 10 make up the Moral Law of God. Let's go through them and see if you have ever done these things:
1. You shall have no other gods before Me.
This means you are to love God above all else. You should put Him first and love Him so much that your love for Him makes your love for family and friends to look like hatred in comparison. Or, as Jesus put it: you are to love the Lord your God with all of your heart, mind, soul, and strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself.
2. You shall not make any [Idol] graven image, not shall you bow down to or worship it.
That is, you are not to create a God either with your hands or your mind. Many say that their god is a god of love and could never create a place like hell. In fact, their god couldn't, because he doesn't exist. He is a figment of their imagination. They have created a god to suit their sins, and have broken the second commandment. They have no problem bowing down to or worshiping a god that doesn’t care if they break the law because they think he is all forgiving. They don’t know the God of the Bible; the one true God.
3. Do not take the name of the Lord your God in vain.
That is, you should not use God's name to curse, and you should also not use His name lightly. If you pray jokingly or without sincerity, you are taking His name in vain, and the bible says He will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.
4. Honor the Sabbath day to keep it holy.
That is, you should set aside a single day to rest from your work and to worship God. Have you always set aside one day to worship God every week, even as a child?
5. Honor your father and mother.
This means at all times, including as a youngster. Most of us have broken that law during our youth. The bible says that rebellion is as witchcraft. Have you always honored your father and mother?
6. Do not murder.
Jesus said that whoever hates someone has committed murder already in his heart. Did you think you had kept this commandment? Have you ever hated? Are you then guilty of murder according to this Law and Jesus' words?
7. Do not commit adultery.
Jesus said that if you even look with lust, you have committed adultery in your heart. Have you ever looked with lust? This commandment also covers pornography, pedophilia, sex before marriage, as well as cheating on your spouse after married. Are you an adulterer?
8. Do not steal.
If you have ever stolen ANYTHING (the extra change accidentally given to you, a paper clip, pen, whatever) then you are a thief. The value does not matter. If I opened up your wallet and took out only one dollar and left the rest, I am still a thief and in danger of judgment.
9. Do not lie.
If you tell even ONE lie, even a white lie, then you are a Liar. The reason or justification for the lie does not remove the fact that you are a liar. The bible says that all liars will have their part in the lake of fire. Have you ever told a lie?
10. Do not covet.
That means to want something that someone else has. Or to be greedy. Have you ever longed to have something that someone else has? Have you ever been greedy? Judgment day is coming. You need to evaluate yourself to see if God judges you according to his standard of laws above, will you be guilty or innocent? Be honest with yourself. You cannot hide anything from God. If you think you may be guilty on judgment day, please check out the mandatory sentencing for breaking any of these laws.
The bible says that if you have broken even one of the Eternal Laws even one time, then you are guilty of breaking the whole law. This is similar to civil law. You don’t have to break all of the laws in the U.S. to become a lawbreaker. Just one.
If you knew of a judge in New York who turned a blind eye and a deaf ear to the dealings of the mafia, would you consider him/her to be a good or a bad judge? If he overlooked the crimes of murder, extortion, rape, assault, and theft, even when the evidence was overwhelming, then he himself should be tried as unjust! If you disagree, then you have a warped view of justice.
If someone commits murder in the United States, time will not cover over guilt. You can be tried and convicted of this crime decades after you have committed it, even if you have lived a perfect life since the incident.
Taking these two examples from civil law, you can now see that Eternal Law will also carry mandatory sentencing. God is good and He is Just. He therefore CANNOT overlook crimes, or he would be a bad and unjust God in the exact same way the judge above is a bad judge. He will not overlook your guilt just because you’ve lived a good life most of the time. Any transgression of God’s law MUST be punished.
Should God allow liars, fornicators, adulterers, blasphemers, and thieves into heaven? What kind of place would that be? The bible says that the mandatory sentence for breaking any of the Ten Commandments is Eternal death in Hell. Hell is a place of unspeakable torment and anguish. God did not create Hell because he is mean and spiteful, but because he is Just and Righteous and He MUST punish sin, just as we mentioned before. Shouldn't the likes of Hitler or someone who murders your family be punished for their crimes against heaven in the same way they should be punished for their crimes against man?
The questions to ask yourself, then, are (1) are you guilty or innocent, and (2) will you end up in Heaven or Hell? You be the judge, because only you and God truly know your own thought life and every deed you’ve done in secret. But remember, you should be honest with yourself now before Judgment Day reveals the truth you so want to conceal. The cover up is always what gets people into trouble, so be honest right now before God.
The Eternal Law is often referred to as a mirror. What is the purpose of a mirror? To examine yourself. If you look into a mirror and see that you have dirt and grime all over your face, do you use the mirror to wash your face? Surely not. In the same way, many people look at the Ten Commandments and think that they can try to "clean up" their lives by trying to follow the Ten Commandments from this day forward. While that may be a good idea, it does not make you clean. The view in the mirror should send you to water to clean yourself up. In the same way, the view of yourself against the pure and holy Law of God should drive you to Jesus Christ who can make you clean.
Securing Good Legal Representation:
The Bible says in Acts 17:31 that God has set a day when He will judge the world with Justice. On that day, you will have to stand before God to see if you are innocent or guilty. God will judge in truth and with justice. There is only ONE WAY for you to escape eternal punishment in Hell, and that is to have the appropriate Representation. God MUST punish sin for justice to be met. When God drops the gavel and declares you guilty (as you know He will, if not go back to the "LAWS" section and check again), Someone must pay the fine. But the Good News is this: over 2000 years ago, Jesus Christ went to the cross to pay the ultimate penalty for you. He died for your sins in your place so that God can say that Justice has been fulfilled and you can be forgiven of your sins.
God offers you this free gift of Salvation (saving you from eternal punishment in Hell) if you will only repent of your sins (repent means to turn from your sins and turn to obedience towards God), confess your sins to God, and put your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Read your bible every day, seek God every day in Prayer, and He will never let you down! You will face trials, difficulties, temptations, and persecution, but you will have joy in your heart because on Judgment day you will be saved because of what Jesus did for you.
What will you do? Will you seek the only representation that can save you? Or will you seek after fraudulent representation? (Fraudulent representation comes in the form of many different religions that tell you that you must clean yourself with the law by living a good life. Buddhists, Muslims, Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, and even Catholics all tell you that you must be good to get to heaven. But I can tell you that not one person in any of these religions has kept God's Law at all times. They will all be Judged guilty. And then what will save them? Nothing can, not even their self-righteous good works).
It is your choice. It is your eternity. I can't choose for you, it is your eternal affair. Make Psalm 51 your prayer today!
