What Is The First Commandment And How To Keep It

What is the first commandment in scripture?

When we’re speaking in terms of the “10 words” or “10 commandments,” the first command is in Exodus 20:2-3 and it reads as follows:

I am Yahuah Elohayka, which have brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other elohiym before me.

On the surface, this seems like an easy commandment to keep, and for the most part it is. But as many of you know, Satan is much smarter than most of us would care to admit. And if you look around this world we live in today, there are literal gods and goddesses of old all around us. Perhaps not in giant statues that we bow down and worship, but in many other ways these gods and goddesses have infiltrated our culture.

Take notice of Dagon’s hat. It’s a fish head. And what do we have here?

If you need me to spell it out, then you either need to get your eyes checked, or take it to the Father in prayer to reveal these things to you because you are deceived. Let’s look at another maybe less obvious example:

Identified variously as a double-tailed siren or “Melusine” mermaid, the Starbucks logo is actually a Venusian fertility goddess. The “star” in Starbucks is the pentagonal orbit of Venus while the siren herself is a European version of Ostara, Astarte and Ishtar (Easter). I could go on, but I’d rather not litter my website with this garbage. Suffice it to say, are you drinking coffee from brewed in a pot at home from poison free beans, or are venturing into the local ishtar bar? If you ask me, it matters and this is the very essence of the command “you shall have no other gods before me.” You need to rid your life of any actual gods (little “g”) such as catholicism, christmas, and easter, but you also need to take a look at every aspect of your life. The food you eat, the clothes you wear, the places you go and make sure they not associated with any other gods.

More importantly though, you should listen to what the Father says:

These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.

How could you possibly go astray when you are meditating on his commands as you fall asleep, as you teach your children, as you talk about them at home or walk along the road? The short answer is, you can’t. I hope that this short chat about how to approach the first commandment of the 10 commandments was helpful. If you have any questions or would like to chat, please reach out!
