Keeping God's Commandments

Could this be a command for the Church NOT to fall away from Christ? Let's examine.


Ps 112:1 Praise ye the LORD. Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD, that *delighteth* greatly in HIS COMMANDMENTS.

Ps 119:35 Make me to go in the path of THY COMMANDMENTS; for therein do I *delight*.

Ps 37:4 *Delight* thyself also in THE LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

Ps 119:19 I am a stranger in the earth: hide not thy COMMANDMENTS from me.

Ps 119:86 All thy COMMANDMENTS are FAITHFUL: they persecute me wrongfully; help thou me.

Ga 2:16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the FAITH OF JESUS CHRIST, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the FAITH OF CHRIST, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.

Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the WORD, and the WORD was with God, and the WORD WAS GOD.

Joh 1:14 And the WORD was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Re 19:13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his NAME is called THE WORD OF GOD.

Jas 1:18 Of his own will begat he us with the WORD OF TRUTH, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.

Re 19:15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp SWORD, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

Eph 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the SWORD of the Spirit, which is the WORD OF GOD:


Ex 20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me. (abstain from false gospels?)

Ex 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: (abstain from idol images of false gospels?)

Ex 20:7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. (using God’s name deceitfully?)

Ex 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. (Keep Christ, the Sabbath over false gospels?)

Ex 20:12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. (Honor Christ?)

Ex 20:13 Thou shalt not kill. (false prophets are murderers?)

Ex 20:14 Thou shalt not commit adultery. (be faithful to Christ only?)

Ex 20:15 Thou shalt not steal. (false prophets are thieves?)

Ex 20:16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour. (false prophets are liars?)

Ex 20:17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s. (don’t lust after other gospels?)

Le 26:3 If ye walk in my STATUTES, and keep my COMMANDMENTS, and do them;

Pr 6:20 My son, keep thy father’s COMMANDMENT, and forsake not THE LAW of thy mother:

Ec 12:13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS: for this is the whole {duty} of man.


De 31:29 For I know that after my death ye will utterly corrupt yourselves, and turn aside from the WAY which I have COMMANDED you; and evil will befall you in the latter days; because ye will do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger through the work of your hands.

Eze 20:16 Because they despised my judgments, and WALKED NOT in my STATUTES, but polluted my sabbaths: for their heart went after their idols.

Da 11:31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the SANCTUARY of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.

Ps 89:31-32 If they break my statutes, and KEEP NOT MY COMMANDMENTS;… Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes.

Ps 119:21 Thou hast rebuked the proud that are cursed, which do **err from** thy COMMANDMENTS.

1Ti 6:10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have **erred from** the FAITH, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

2Ti 2:18 Who concerning the truth have **erred**, saying that the RESURRECTION is past already; and overthrow the faith of some.

Da 7:25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change TIMES and LAWS: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

Re 2:4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy FIRST LOVE.


Eze 36:27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall KEEP MY JUDGMENT, and do {}.

Pr 1:23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known MY WORDS unto you.

Eze 37:24 And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my JUDGMENTS, and observe my STATUTES, and do them.

Re 12:17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the COMMANDMENTS of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.


God appears to be associating His commandments to Christ. Just one of many names assigned to HIM. Since God’s laws demands perfect obedience on the human level, keeping the commandments of God is equivalent to keeping Christ (Salvation). In tribulation, the church failed to keep God’s commandments by going after false gospels. This brought the wrath of God on it as He allows antichrists to rule and for the body to destroy itself.
