Ten Commandments

In order for men to be able to live in peace on earth, GOD gave man the 10 Com­mand­ments, which are like instruc­tions for use or sign­posts for our earth­ly lives. If we keep on try­ing to focus on GOD with the help of the 10 Com­mand­ments, with GOD’s grace flow­ing from the Sacra­ments, we have the chance to go to Heav­en. For in the end there are only two options: a life with GOD or a life with Satan. – Heav­en or hell.

I am the LORD your GOD!

1.  You shall have no oth­er gods before Me.

2.  You shall not take the Name of the LORD your GOD in vain.

3.  Remem­ber to keep holy the LORD’s Day.

4.  Hon­our your father and your moth­er so that it may go
     well with you and you may live long on earth.

5.  You shall not mur­der.

6.  You shall not com­mit adul­tery.

7.  You shall not steal.

8.  You shall not lie.

9.  You shall not cov­et your neighbour’s wife.

10. You shall not cov­et your neighbour’s goods.

Moses Receives the Ten Com­mand­ments from GOD

Sun­day Obser­vance
GOD says: “Six days you shall labour and do all your work; but the sev­enth day is a Sab­bath to the glo­ry of the LORD, your GOD …” Look how this Com­mand­ment of GOD is being ignored. With few excep­tions such as farm­ers who hard­ly know Sun­days any more, like­wise numer­ous shops with their shop­ping Sun­days.

Com­mand­ments of GOD can­not be changed. Com­mand­ments giv­en by GOD can­not be shak­en, nei­ther by a bish­op, nor by a Pope, nor any­one at all. I have come to make known the wish­es of GOD. But peo­ple con­stant­ly expect me to com­ply with their wish­es. It grieves me for the sake of GOD if peo­ple say: “We will go to church on Mon­day, Tues­day or Wednes­day instead.” This is not in keep­ing with the Com­mand­ment: “You shall keep holy the LORD’s Day!” Of course, GOD did not say: ‘You shall attend the Holy Sac­ri­fice of the Mass on Sun­day,’ but the Church has thus set it down in the church law and I see no rea­son why I should loose this pre­cept of the Church. For how could I bet­ter sanc­ti­fy the Sun­day than by attend­ing the Holy Sac­ri­fice of the Mass? – Sun­day is sim­ply the day which GOD reserved to Him­self.

My dear­ly beloved, observ­ing GOD’s Com­mand­ments brings bless­ing; vio­lat­ing them caus­es dis­as­ter. Espe­cial­ly the elder­ly amongst you will remem­ber the proverb still valid today: “Like your Sun­day, like your dying day!”

Sab­bath or Sun­day?
The SAVIOUR has per­fect­ly ful­filled the 10 Com­mand­ments of the Old Tes­ta­ment, which indeed He Him­self in the FATHER and in the HOLY SPIRIT gave to Moses on Mount Sinai, enti­tling Him to say: “Now comes a New Tes­ta­ment, a new law.” At first, after CHRIST’s Ascen­sion, the Apos­tles have also still gone to the Tem­ple in Jerusalem until they recog­nised through the HOLY SPIRIT that they were no Jews any more now, but Chris­tians.

Peter Receives from CHRIST the Pow­er of Bind­ing and Loos­ing

If the SAVIOUR were not risen, we would all not be redeemed. As every­body knows, He rose on Sun­day. Now that goes for the New Tes­ta­ment. Some­thing else is for­got­ten: the SAVIOUR said to Peter: “You are the rock and on this rock I will build My church! What­ev­er you loose on earth will also be loosed in heav­en; and what­ev­er you bind on earth, will also be bound in heav­en.” If it says: “You shall keep holy the LORD’s Day,” for GOD it was not about the Sat­ur­day, but about us hav­ing six days to work and one day to rest. When the SAVIOUR was on earth, He even allowed the Apos­tles to pluck some ears of grain on the Sab­bath. Then the Phar­isees said to Him: “Look, why are they doing what is not law­ful on the Sab­bath?” JESUS’ answer was: “The Sab­bath was made for man, not man for the Sab­bath. There­fore, the Son of man is Lord even of the Sab­bath.” (see Mark 2,24ff)
