(分享Sharing 29 July 2010)
Don’t complain to me if I post too much recently. This is my form of concentrated prayers. Resolute -> Pray, as I have to testify God, else the spirit of always learning but not understanding will get into me, and I cannot see Emmanuel in all things 24 hours.
The 10 commandments never get old. It is not by chance that all throughout church history, for 2000 years New Testament time and 4000 years Old Testament time (Adam about 4000 BC, Moses about 1525 BC), total of 3500 years after the 10 commandments were given by God to Moses, that these remained the top list from God for saints to memorize and keep in their hearts.
We must receive the very Spirit of God in the (1) 10 commandments, for Jesus also expanded the 10 commandments in the New Testament (2) Sermon on the Mount <Matthew Chapters 5-7>, (3) Sermon at the Last Supper <John Chapters 14-17>. In these three great sermons in the bible, ALL of God’s perfect will are revealed. These are important because IF I know that I am following these laws, I will know that I am in the blessings of God.
1 Vindicate me, O LORD,
for I have led a blameless life;
I have trusted in the LORD
2 Test me, O LORD, and try me,
examine my heart and my mind;
3 for your love is ever before me,
and I walk continually in your truth.
How can David pray like that above? Is it because he was out of sins? In fact, this Psalm 26 was a reflection of Psalm 32! Psalm 32 was a prayer done by David when he was ultra feeling accused in the heart. It is like Psalm 26 is the conclusion psalm of Psalm 32!
The Lord is willing to give us every blessed thing. However, He cannot give because of spiritual reasons. If we die and resurrect, we will then immediately find that the Ten Commandments are the gospel.
I bought this poster and stuck it on my Study Room Wall
Moses (10 commandments)
1) Must not have other gods (demons): demons are invisible spirits ==> Only Jehovah, Only Jesus (Only Child of God)
1) 不可有别神『鬼神』；鬼神是看不到的灵来的 ==> 唯独耶和华、耶稣基督（唯独神的儿女）
This is the first and foremost commandment. Only Jehovah and Only Jesus Christ <Acts 4:12>. Above all is God, Holy Spirit = Christ. And He is in you. The first commandment is holding on to the Child of God identity, relationship, belonging, and method. You are the main character of the era. (Then you will then not have mental problems to compare with people or things or feel shortage.)
2) Must not have idols (flesh) ==> Rely on the Spirit (Rely on the Promise of God)
2) 不可有偶像『肉体』==> 靠圣灵（靠应许）
(拜偶像的（我们现在常常关注的）就是与鬼相交的。This can be seen. What do we often focus on? Worshipping idols is actually communion with the devil. It is idolatry if we call up in Jesus Christ’s name to fulfill our own desires.)
You either rely on the world (get influenced and assimilated into the world, or you rely on the Holy Spirit). Do not rely on the spirit of the worldly culture, but rely on the Spirit. The second you rely on the Spirit, demons and idols will be driven away and God’s kingdom will descend. If it never comes when you try to rely on the Spirit, it means you did not rely on the Spirit. Relying on the Spirit actually means relying on the positive-thinking side of God because that is the way God is moving His whole perfect will for the children of God. There may be problems, but the problems are positively-planned by God because of the gospel that is in you. Therefore, relying on the Spirit means relying on the always-good smiling intentions of God.
3) Do not call the Name of Jehovah in vain ==> Test and Seek the Perfect Will and Heartbeat To Pray (Supplicate and Intercede)
3) 不可妄称耶和华的名 ==> 察验而按神的美意和心肠来祷告（为自己祈求、为人代祷）
(奉耶稣基督的名 = 按照上帝的旨意和心肠为人代祷。In Jesus’ Name = according to God’s will. Using the Name of Jesus Christ is not a chant. Instead, we must receive the heartbeat of God to intercede for others.)
Once you rely on the Holy Spirit, you will then understand that the promise of God brings about all things answers, perfect will, wisdom, and correct compassion. Then you can pray. You cannot pray without knowing the perfect will of God, for the prayer topics won’t be coming from God, and you will not receive answers to prayers. But if the Lord abides in you and you in God, whatever that you wished for, whatever that your state of heart is in, that is the very perfect will of God already, and that is the very thing that will be fulfilled by God. But do we know if we do not pray? It is when we pray (commandment 3) by the Spirit (commandment 2) of the gospel (commandment 1) that we will see fulfillments and answers in our life and living (commandment 4).
4) Must keep the Sabbath ==> Remember the Lifestyle Lord’s Day, 7 Days Morning and Night Love God Love Men To Live
4) 不可不守安息日 ==> 纪念主日，七天早晚保守爱神爱人的关系来过活
(上帝创造的时候，有两个单位给我们（早上、晚上：一天；六天做工、第七天休息：一周）==> 守安息日是为了七日（与神的关系、与人的关系）。主日我们要保守我们的意念。When God creates, there are two units that He has given us (morning, evening: one day; 6-days to do work, seven days rest; one week) ==> we keep the Sabbath for the sake of seven days (relationship with God, relationship with men). The Lord’s Sabbath is that we must preserve our heart intentions.)
The principle of living is firstly to have the Lord’s Day message content in our life. We live not by bread, but by every word that comes from the living God. The Lord’s Day is not just a ritual or ceremony that we have to do every Sunday, but the purpose is for seven days. For each of these seven days, each day being a unit, there is a morning and evening of scheduled prayers and the middle part, to work and labor. During the laboring period, there will be Emmauel evidences. These evidences become our prayer topics, and the prayer topics become the testing and seeking for the perfect will to continue to live. These evidences that are alternated become testimonies. These testimonies can save lives and make disciples. What are the testimonies? They are all found towards men in the 5th to 10th commandments.
1) – 4) are towards God.
1) – 4) 是对神的。
5) Filial towards parents (our roots are from above) ==> 顺从权柄系统（把权柄以上的当作上帝）
5) 孝敬父母（我们的根源是从上头来的） ==> Obey Hierarchical Authority (Serve as if you were serving God)
(神造人是有根的；对父母而不管根才是不孝。Quarreling with our parents is not being unfilial, but ignoring our roots is. God made man to have roots.)
God made man to have roots because of hierarchical authority in all interpersonal relationships. The highest authority in relationships is Christ Himself, as Christ is the cornerstone joining and holding everyone in love together. Knowing the spiritual law, we also know there is Satan. Therefore, we obey the spiritual authority: treat everyone above as God, and take our role with God-driven ego to lead people below us.
6) Do not kill (life) ==> Save Lives
6) 不可杀人（生命）==> 救人
Why obey authority that has been arranged by God? This is because there is blood, and there is life in blood. Relationships are important because there is life in them. This is to pull and save lives out from the spiritual forces of darkness. Resolute to touch lives for everything that you do and live.
7) Do not commit adultery (spouse) ==> Communion of spouses (Spirit, Soul, Body, Coworkers)
7) 不可奸淫（配偶）==> 夫妇要联合（身心灵同工）
(色情作品是灵来的，会抓住人的灵。有时不想想还是会想的。这个思想来的时候，我们要仰望十字架。这个是一个功课来的。Pornography is spiritual, and will grasp hold of man’s spirit. If you do not think about it sometimes, it will also come to you to intrude into your thoughts. When this thought comes, we must look up to the cross. This is a lesson.)
Who is the closest to us? They are the spouse, or the coworkers. They are the ones who understands you most and fight / pray with you alongside even if they belittle you in the process. The ones that you cannot leave, they are the ones that God has willed to share your prayer topics for them to pray for you. You cannot take them aside and scold them till they become naught. They are your life because God has planned it this way. Therefore, LEARN to commune and unite with them totally.
8) Do not steal (properties) ==> Charity (All resources to win over eternal friends)
8) 不可偷窃（财物）==> 周济人（凡事财力来得着永远的朋友）
(可以的话，以灵魂来换取。If possible, exchange everything that you have for souls.)
What do you have? Money, time, family, materials, etc, that can rot on earth? Don’t use them for earthly things, but to win souls, for where you bank in the treasures, there your heart will be. Do you have weaknesses like even mental problems or mental hurdles? That is your uniqueness. Use it as a testimony, get healed, and comfort and win over eternal friends who are the same as you.
These are your brethrens. Use every earthly thing to gain their trust, respect, love and intercessions for yourself.
9) Do not make false testimonies (harm people) ==> Edify people (Inspire, explain, pastor, cultivate, mould the spirit of disciples)
9) 不可作假见证（害人）==> 造就人（启发、开导、牧养、培养、陶冶门徒的灵）
(E.g. Rahab lies when people tried to go after the spies. God is pleased with her. However, we do not lie because of our own desires. Probably Rahab did what she did because she has the conviction of the Holy Spirit.)
Who are the brethrens you can influence the most? They are called Christ’s disciples under you. Edify and train them up to be Christ’s disciples. Mould their spirits by the Spirit’s convictions because they need your prayers to pull them to Christ’s Spirit.
10) Do not greed (selfish) ==> Satisfaction (Not Have Fun to Live, but Live to Have Fun)
10) 不可贪念（自私）==> 知足（不是为了玩而活，乃是为了活而玩）
Don’t train disciples but live to have fun. No one can do everything in the world in their 70 years. Do it the smart way, and this is called Ecclesiastes = having fun. Live to work, don’t work to live. Live to toil, don’t toil to try to make a living. Equip, fight, train, make disciples, shepherd the church as having fun, don’t think that you can live only because things get well.
