Making Sinai – the Commandments, an Icon…a theological error…

Theological question asked: “Is there a difference between laws and [the] 10-Commandments?” Making Sinai an Icon? Why?

Christian response,

The Ten Commandments are a codified fragment of the Spiritual Law of Conscience (Romans 2:14-15) given specifically to Israel’s children for eschatological purposes. The Commandments were etched in stone for the Hebrew Tribes as they were sanctified, set apart, by Yahweh for His eschatological purposes going forward; this, concerning the Gospel and His coming Messiah who would enter Time through the Tribe of Judah. Israel’s children were commanded to be holy as Elohim is Holy (Leviticus 19-20; 1 Peter 1:15-17) and the Decalogue was given as a tutorial for this specific purpose.

Reasoning for the Decalogue (The Ten Commandments),

Yahweh was concerned relevant to His relationship with the Hebrew Tribes as they were inundated by paganism serving pagan gods; therefore, Yahweh codified specific laws (nine-moral, one-ceremonial) providing a bulwark against specific, immoral, destructive, behaviors practiced by these pagan tribes, behavior that would have alienated Israel’s children and broken covenant with Yahweh, much like the defiled behavior of the Adamic and Noahic generations before them, a wicked and perverse people through whom Elohim refused to bring about a people group that would further His eschatological plan to “destroy the works of the Devil” (1 John 3:8b) through His primary battle strategy, the Gospel (Genesis 3:21), ordained “before Time began” (2 Timothy 1:8-10); Elohim’s chosen Vessel to implement the Gospel, Messiah Yeshua (1 John 3:8b) who came specifically to Israel’s children to proselytize them in the “Good News” of Elohim’s grace through faith; in fact, it was Israel’s children who were foreordained to be ministers of the Gospel concerning the “Great Commission” thereby fulfilling Yahweh’s promise to Abraham (Genesis 12:3b).

Elohim’s 2nd-Eschotological effort concerning victory over the Devil,

The demonically rooted behaviors of the Adamic and Noahic generations were so repulsive to Elohim (Genesis 6) that He destroyed all but eight with water. The Patriarchy of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob was Elohim’s second eschatological effort at maneuvering Time and physics via free will toward victory over the Devil at Golgotha; this, via Elohim’s own selfless love as a critical demonstrative act of compassion for the sake of maintaining volitional love and intimacy with His faithful angelic creation witnessing the struggle between Satan and Elohim within the created Realm of Time (Genesis 3:15; John 8:44; Luke 10:18; John 16:11).

Far too many theologians, Judaizers, legalists, religions, place eschatological emphasis on the Decalogue, Sinai, to the point of idolatry not understanding that the foundational root of the Decalogue is the Spiritual Law of Conscience (Romans 2:14-15) that has been extant from the creation of the angels forward as an arbiter of free will; the Spiritual Law having been infused within the human genome on Day-6 by Elohim for His eschatological purposes going forward; the Spiritual Law, the Law of the Spirit of Life (Romans 8:2) written upon the heart of humanity at conception in the womb and utilized by the Holy Spirit in the New Covenant via the redeemed human conscience (2 Corinthians 5:17) via the daily process of sanctification to produce “fruits of righteousness” (Galatians 5) in the redeemed by faith in Jesus Christ as Messiah; the Spiritual Law of Conscience that will remain extant throughout Eternity as free will remains relevant in Eternity concerning intimacy, relationship, with our Creator. The Spiritual Law being eternally and infinitely superior to Sinai’s Decalogue.

In closing,

The Decalogue certainly has its theological place in Time but should not be an Icon of worship but understood and interpreted as Yahweh’s codified laws given specifically to Israel’s children and sojourners with them; this, as a bulwark against compromise with paganism. The Christian should not be idolizing nine-moral laws carved in stone given a Nation of people who rejected Elohim’s New Covenant ordination, but the Christian should be focused upon the One that is the fulfillment of those codified laws and offers humanity a perfected imputed-gifted righteousness in exchange for our sin through His sinless perfection; who is, Jesus Christ our God and Messiah. Worship Jesus, not that which points humanity to Him by faith (Galatians 3:24-26).
