3 Uncommon Reason You Must Not Joke With The 10 Commandments

16

Firstly, the first time God spoke to the children of Israel; the words which came out of his mouth were the ten (10) commandments… And the Lord said to Moses, “Behold, I come to you in the thick cloud, that the people may hear when I speak with you, and believe you forever.” So Moses told the words of the people to the Lord. Then the Lord said to Moses, “Go to the people and consecrate them today and tomorrow, and let them wash their clothes. And let them be ready for the third day. For on the third day the Lord will come down upon Mount Sinai in the sight of all the people. Exodus 19:9-11 kjv In the garden of Eden, the voice of God was not something unusual as Adam and Eve heard it as often as he spoke with them. In fact, there was nothing dreadful about his voice. However, after they had eaten the forbidden fruit, God’s voice became a dreadful thing to them. They could no longer communicate with him freely. The voice that made them welcome their maker became a voice they hid from whenever they hear it. After the fall of man, God stopped talking with human beings. He resorted to using intermediaries known as prophets. They became his mouth piece. Whatever he wanted to relay to man, he communicated it to his prophets who in turn passed it to the people. After several years, God decided to talk once again to human beings as he did to Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden. They were to hear his voice audibly. Moses was instructed to sanctify and cleanse the people of God, the children of Israel. More so, they were to wash their clothes, and men were to stay away from their wives for three days. In addition, Moses was to guard the mountain to deter the people from touching the foot of the mountain which could result in sudden death. After so much preparation, God descended on the mountain in thick cloudiness with a huge smoke accompanied with loud, unbearable sound of trumpet which continued with increasing tone until God talked. The scene was dreadful to all the children of Israel except Moses who was fond of hearing the Almighty God’s voice. Surprisingly, when God opened his mouth to talk, what came out of it were just the ten (10) commandments. If God could come down by himself from Heaven to the Earth to talk with human beings after restraining himself from physical communication for centuries, then the information from him would be something of utmost importance.
