The 10 Commandments of Faith
By Tony Abram Saturday, September 14, 1996

Much is said about the 10 Commandments that God gave us through Moses in recent times. However, all that is said about the danger of them to one’s health etc, (tongue in cheek as I write this) no one has suffered harm from reading them, repeating them, preaching on them, looking at them or standing beside them.

DID YOU KNOW?
As you walk up the steps to the building which houses the U.S. Supreme Court you can see near the top of the building a row of the world's law givers and each one is facing one in the middle who is facing forward with a full frontal view...it is Moses and he is holding the Ten Commandments!

DID YOU KNOW?
As you enter the Supreme Court courtroom, the two huge oak doors have the Ten Commandments engraved on each lower portion of each door.

DID YOU KNOW?
As you sit inside the courtroom, you can see the wall, right above where the Supreme Court judges sit, a display of the Ten Commandments! There are Bible verses etched in stone all over the Federal Buildings and Monuments in Washington, D.C.
James Madison, the fourth president, known as "The Father of Our Constitution" made the following statement: "We have staked the whole of all our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for self-government, upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God."
Patrick Henry, that patriot and Founding Father of our country said: "It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded not by religionists but by Christians, not on religions but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ".

DID YOU KNOW? Every session of Congress begins with a prayer by a paid preacher, whose salary has been paid by the taxpayer since 1777. Fifty-two of the 55 founders of the Constitution were members of the established orthodox churches in the colonies.

DID YOU KNOW? The very first Supreme Court Justice, John Jay, said: "Americans should select and prefer Christians as their rulers."
How, then, have we gotten to the point that everything we have done for 220 years in this country is now suddenly wrong and unconstitutional? Chamber, US House of Representatives It is said that 86% of Americans believe in God. Therefore, it is very hard to understand why there is such a mess about having the Ten Commandments on display or "In God We Trust" on our money and having God in the Pledge of Allegiance.
However, in this outline I am going to give you what I call the ‘TEN COMMANDMENTS OF FAITH’! I wonder if this will injure anyone, however, my intention is for them to speak, convict and help all who read or hear this message

I. Thou Shalt Not Talk of Fear! (Fear is opposite of faith.)
(2 Tim 1:7 KJV) For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

II. Thou Shalt not say I am weak!
(Psa 27:1 KJV) A Psalm of David. The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

III. Thou Shalt not talk of inability. (this gives rise to feelings in inferiority)
(Phil 4:13 KJV) I can do all things through Christ, which strengtheneth me.

IV. Thou Shalt not talk of pains and symptoms of sickness.
(Mat 8:17 KJV) That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.
(Isa 53:5 KJV) But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
(Ex 15:26 KJV) And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.
(Ex 23:25 KJV) And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.

V. Thou Shalt not worry or be anxious.
(Phil 4:6 KJV) Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
(Phil 4:7 KJV) And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
(1 Pet 5:7 KJV) Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

VI. Thou Shalt not fear poverty and lack material things.
(Phil 4:19 KJV) But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
(Psa 23:1 KJV) A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
(3 John 1:2 KJV) Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
(Psa 37:25 KJV) I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
(Psa 1:3 KJV) And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

VII. Thou Shalt not fear trouble nor any evil.
(Psa 91:7 KJV) A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
(Psa 91:8 KJV) Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
(Psa 91:9 KJV) Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
(Psa 91:10 KJV) There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
(Psa 91:11 KJV) For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
(2 Tim 4:8 KJV) Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

VIII. Thou Shalt not be afraid of persecution or of failure.
(Psa 34:19 KJV) Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.
(Phil 1:6 KJV) Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:
(Psa 84:11 KJV) For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.

IX. Thou Shalt not be afraid of Man nor of demons.
(Luke 10:19 KJV) Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
(Prov 29:25 KJV) The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.
(1 John 4:4 KJV) Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
(2 Cor 2:14 KJV) Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.
(Rom 8:37 KJV) Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

X. Thou shalt not fret thyself nor fear of what to do or worry about God’s guidance.
(Psa 37:23 KJV) The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.
(Psa 37:25 KJV) I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.

The day that the LAW was given, 3,000 men died, however, on the day that the Church was born, (The Day of Pentecost) 3,000 came alive when they received the message and GRACE of God. Truly, Jesus Christ is the end of the LAW of Righteous to every one who believes. Will you open your heart to Him today.
