The First Law


God, the Father watches us all everywhere.

The universe is vast; and although it is a vast expanse, it is a voice declaring the reality and message of God. Moreover, humankind is without excuse on the Day of Judgment, as creation is the declaration of God’s universal law. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” and although written on the pages of the Bible, one look into the expanse of the heavens, should reveal this wisdom.

However, humanity filled with lust, and hatefulness of God, has denied this wonderful message. Truly, the fool has said in his heart, “there is no God” he has committed an act for which he deserves to die, yet he lives because of the goodness of God. He is reversed like would for a fire, unless he recognizes the presence of God in our world.

God told Israel once they were out of Egypt, “ Exodus 20:2-3 I am the LORD your God, who has brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before me.” It was the first law given to the nation, because it was the first law spoken bringing the world into existence.

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. There is only one God, one Creator, and only he can deliver.  In addition, in the process of time he came in human form, died for the sins of the world, and by his power rose from the grave, demonstrating his might. Jesus Christ is the way the truth and the life, God in the flesh redeeming the world unto himself, a world created by his power, and for his glory.

Exodus 20:4-6 You shall not make unto yourself any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: You shall not bow down yourself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
