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)
