Constitution of Israel
From Eliyahu

I'm about to share some thoughts that most people don't really want to hear. These thoughts are about the Commandments of God (especially the Ten Commandments) that were introduced to the world through the pages of the books written by Moses, known as the Torah. From the top of Mount Sinai the LORD Himself spoke forth the Ten Commandments to His nation, Israel, but He also did something else. He wrote those Commandments on tablets of stone, setting forth His perfect standard of righteousness. From that time forward all Israel, AND all the world came under judgment as adjudicated according to that perfect standard of the righteousness of Elohim, embodied in the Commandments. Paul the apostle explains:

"Now we know that whatever things the Torah says, it speaks to those who are under the Torah, that every mouth may be closed, and all the world may be brought under the judgment of Elohim! Because by the works of the Torah, no flesh will be justified in his sight. For through the Torah comes the knowledge of sin." (Romans 3:19-20)

It works like this: The Creator gave/gives mankind our existence, and everything else that sustains us. This fact obligates every person who is ever born to do what the Creator, God, Elohim, wants us to do - perfectly with no exceptions. Before the Commandments most people did what they wanted without regard for their Creator's standards, because those standards were not clearly set forth anywhere. They were sinning (sin being missing the mark of His righteousness) but they were ignorant of their sins in the absence of the Torah. However, that all changed when the Torah came into the world setting forth the righteous Commandments of the Creator. Once those Commandments came into the world sin came to be known, and thereafter all mankind must be judged by that standard of righteousness.


As I said above, most people don't really want to hear about this. The reason is obvious. Nobody can live up to the righteous standard of the Commandments of the Torah, condemning every person as a sinner. Even if they could obey, most would not, because they like sin in one or more of its various flavors, and don't want to give it up. So, rather than come to grips with their obligation to their Creator, they deny Him, or invent justifications for their rebellion against Him.


Here in America the majority of the population in times past at least acknowledged the Ten Commandments as God's standard of behavior, and as His Higher Law. This was shown in the fact that court houses, state capitols, public schools and other public buildings often displayed the Ten Commandments.


     Here in Texas the Ten Commandments are still displayed at the Capitol.

When this display of the Ten Commandments was challenged in court, Texas held its ground and did not remove the display. The case went all the way to the Supreme Court, in which  the display was approved and Texas was vindicated.


However, the case of Texas is not the norm. Upon being challenged, other states have removed their Ten Commandments monuments, even if they have done so under cover of darkness, as with this headline from Oklahoma: "Late-Night Removal of 10 Commandments Monument in Oklahoma Reignites Controversy"
(The Daily Signal, October 07, 2015).


The trend is clearly away from the Torah and Ten Commandments in particular, and even more so, against acknowledgement of any obligation to our Creator whatsoever. This refusal to acknowledge the Higher Law of the Creator embodied in the Commandments does not release the evildoers from judgment, as Scripture says;

"For the wrath of Elohim is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known of Elohim is revealed in them, for Elohim revealed it to them. For the invisible things of him since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, even his everlasting power and divinity; that they may be without excuse." (Romans 1:18-20)

Nothing can change the fact that the Commandments contain God's standard of righteousness, so cannot be done away with. Neither, due to sin, can we fully live up to them, producing a constant state of disobedience to them. However, our loving Father did not leave us without a way out of this dilemma. Paul explains:

"But now apart from the Torah, a righteousness of Elohim has been revealed, being testified by the Torah and the Prophets; even the righteousness of Elohim through faith in Yeshua the Messiah to all and on all those who believe. For there is no distinction, for all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of Elohim; being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Messiah Yeshua"
(Romans 3:21-24)

So what is the answer to the dilemma the righteous Commandments put our sinful selves in? Certainly not denying the Commandments. They were written on stone because they are forever the righteous standard of Elohim. No, the answer is putting faith in our Messiah, Yeshua! His perfect atonement justifies the believer in the sight of God. Does our faith, then, do away with the Torah? Paul answers that:

"Do we then nullify the Torah through faith? May it never be! No, we establish the Torah." (Romans 3:31)

"We establish the Torah" through our faith in Messiah, from whom we receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, "that the ordinance of the Torah might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit." (Romans 8:4)
