The Voice

By John Muza, Army

Writing Type: Prose

The Lord has spoken. Not to listen breaks the will of God. Shadow cast on all humanity. Life to this day has eroded with exceptional deterioration. The voice, silent like the wind. A challenge to adversity. There are ten principles, guidelines to live by and to be followed without exception: the Ten Commandments.

The first four show love and praise to the Lord. Love for one another. Keep holy the Lord's day. Your body is the temple of God made holy at birth with a free will. The last six commandments consist of the ruling and law of God with forbidden and severe consequences. God's warning: sin with vengeance saith the Lord. The wages of sin results in death without everlasting life. Etched in stone, the Ten Commandments were given to Moses, God's faithful servant, for all humanity to live by.

God created this earth,and he blesses men for obedience to His laws and punishes those who are disobedient. Jesus preached the gospel of the kingdom of God. Jesus reminded us again and again about this vital relationship as in, "Why do you call me Lord and not do the things which I say?"

The Bible states, there is only one law giver who is able to save or destroy. Sin is the transgression of the law. Sin is breaking God's spiritual law, the Ten Commandments.

None will keep God's law perfectly. Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides has the Father and the

Son, and the Holy Trinity. Blessed be the name of the Father, Son, the Holy Spirit.


Forgiveness is being humble in His presence. Pray for his grace and mercy. Amen.
