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.
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.
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)
