Father we just want to thank you again for the opportunity to come here and study your word and we pray that your Holy Spirit will lead us guide us and help us understand this very very important subject about the Sabbath we pray in Jesus wonderful name Amen OK. What we're going to look at today I really like this particular one because we're going to see how these guys have really and when you hear this you're going to hear people say this OK and when you hear this you're going to know immediately from our study today that it's simply not so. You know it's one thing for somebody to say something it's another thing to prove it isn't in him but he can say anything they want. But we're going to go to the Bible and we're going to prove it from the Bible today so what we're going to look at today here is one of the things these guys say they say there's no Sabbath commandment in the New Testament Now remember though they said there was no commandment in Genesis remember now they're saying there's no commandment in the New Testament then they say nine commandments are repeated in the New Testament except the Fourth Commandment the Sabbath. Now they only do this to get around the Sabbath we all know that you know. Right right exactly so so this is what they say and we're going to look at it carefully and I mean carefully now churches are taught by their pastors and leaders not to keep the Sabbath isn't that true that's what they're taught matter of fact we've all just finished unlock revelation we do a series of meetings you know and when it comes to the Sabbath What's the first thing these people do when they come to these unlocked revelations they run to their Pastor Wright and they say their pastor you know I'm learning something about this Sabbath thing right on don't worry about that that was the old Jewish Sabbath nailed to the cross all this and that and then they don't come back right. That's what happens so they're taught by their pastors that the Sabbath isn't important that's what they're taught and so they basically just parrot it. They don't really study it out for themselves they just parrot it. So I want to look at one here in a minute John MacArthur for example John MacArthur a well known preacher you've heard of John MacArthur. John MacArthur is you know he's a dynamic speaker. Very dynamic speaker. And if you've ever heard of him or of CD He's a very dynamic speaker and he captivates the audience he really does powerful speakers written commentaries all that kind of thing while going to show you what John MacArthur says about the very thing we're going to talk about today listen to this all ten commandments are repeated in the New Testament some numerous times except the fourth command it is never repeated in the New Testament not one single time. Now this is a theologian Dr John MacArthur now you would think a field legend have the credibility what about the credibility you have of people don't even check it out you know that they really don't because of who says it. Right listen I want to say something you don't have to take my word for check it out what I'm sharing with you check it out and then if I'm not saying something right you know what I'd hope you would do as a Christian brother and sister I'd hope you'd come to me and say Look you said this but the Bible says this is I want to get in line with what the Bible right and we don't all know everything all at once doing. So that's how we learn. But this is what MacArthur says Now you remember when I mentioned Dudley I'm can write D.M. can write. Remember that name. He was an admin as pastor for twenty eight years left the church wrote a book against Abu Anas called Seventh Day Adventists a Marine out listen to what can write said back in one thousand nine hundred listen to what he said except thing the Sabbath the other nine commandments are in the New Testament either in the same words or in substance except what the SAB say that now that was can right. Now deal rats that comes along and they all wrath of says this all the moral principles found in the Ten Commandment law of the Old Covenant have been repeated in the new covenant with the exception of the Sabbath command there it is right there that's what they all say is OK. Now we're going to challenge this. I don't know about you but I like challenges we're going to challenge these statements right here. We're not going to just accept it OK we're going to challenge it listen to this commentary all the Ten Commandments except the fourth are restated Isn't that amazing So that's what they're telling us now the words nine commandments are valid for The Christian but one of them isn't the Sabbath. That's what they're saying now. We're going to test it let's test this to see if this is really what the Bible says because a lot of people don't even test it they just accept it. That's exactly what they do. So after today's study you're going to know that hey when you hear this because I guarantee you you will hear this if you share anything about the Sabbath ultimately you're going to hear this very thing by the way of any of you have heard this you've heard it Aventura. So it's very important to understand. Contex right by the way if you're dealing with some of the issues these guys raise that have left the church over different doctrinal teachings and they say something like this they say oh you have taken that out of context I've never heard anybody say that before. People use that as a crutch to throw you all so here's what you do when somebody says to you oh you took that out of context you say well what is the context. And I guarantee you they're not going to tell you what the context is. What is the context. You see because many times ad minister accused of proof texting out of context you know that all right you've heard that before right. So we're going to look at the proof texting is just picking out a text out of its context to prove something. You know OK So context is very important now I like dictionaries. When you're studying the Bible or studying a particular subject by the way have you ever heard of Robert Gentry who wrote a book called creation's tiny mysteries. You when you heard of that writer read that well he was a scientists and so a lot of us don't know scientific terms right so it's a good way to learn some of those terms with the dictionary right there with you so if you're reading something and you're you don't understand the meaning of it well why not find something to help you understand the meaning right well that's what we're going to do today so watch this we're going to go to the dictionary and I want to put the word assumption taken right out of the dictionary the word of assumption Listen to this the act of assuming a statement accepted or suppose true without wops proof of or demonstration prove. This in this reenact to enact again reenact a law. Quote To repeat or copy the words of another usually with acknowledgement of the source mention that active briefly or casually referring to something and incidental reference or illusion now you understand what delusion is for example have you ever heard people say oh I'm a New Testament Christian I don't use the Old Testament I'm a New Testament Christian right when the Book of Revelation did you know that the biggest part of the book revelation actually comes from the Old Testament that you know there. And there are so many illusions in the Book of Revelation that come directly from the Old Testament you may have three or four or five allusions in one tax coming directly from the Old Testament if a person doesn't understand the Old Testament how in the world they go in understand the Book of Revelation because it it comes from the Old Testament so that's mentioning reference or allusion refer to direct to a source for help or what information refer allude to make an indirect reference to now you're going to see why I'm going into these definitions in just a minute or restate the state again or in a new form now that's come to repeat because they usually use three different words either reenact repeat or reinstitute you hear people say those three things for example oh well a Ten Commandments No we only have to keep ninety it was restated in the New Testament or ten commands we'll have to keep nine because it was really an acted in the New Testament or ten Commandments No we only have to keep nine because it was repeated in the New Testament got it that's the terminology these guys use now yesterday I hit on it just a little bit about moral and ceremonial right. Moral and ritual. Now watch this these guys use the word ritual we're going to talk about it but notice the definition of ritual the prescribed form or order of conduct being a religious or solemn ceremony that's the dictionary definition let's look at ritual again a body of ceremonies or writes a book of rights or ceremonial forms rituals a ceremonial act or a series of such acts that's the dictionary definition Now let's look at the word ceremonial ceremonial a set of ceremonies devoted to forums and ritual very important understand what I'm going to do when I go with this so watch this ceremony a formal act or set of acts performed as prescribe to buy a ritual now I like synonyms I like books that sell us what synonyms are you know what synonyms are watch this right it means ritual ceremony and ceremonial so these words are actually interchangeable describing the same thing yes or no. Right then we agree to that. Ira but agree to that OK now watch what can write says here's what can write said moral law ceremonial law and been issues these two terms as freely as though the Bible were full of them. Now this is what can write say. You see that he's saying well adding this use those terms all the time as if it's full of that in the Bible right so when we talk about the distinction between moral law and ceremonial law we use the term ceremonial and we all know what we're talking about. When we use the term ceremonial right now Dale rash of really looked at can write and Dale rash of really looked at a man by the name of H M Rigol Now I want to tell you here how people parrot what somebody else has said before them because this isn't original with him wriggle and yet Dale Rast of quotes this guy as a source of authority. OK And watch what H.M.'s are H. him wriggle says listen to what he says moral ceremonial law admin issues these two terms as freely as though the Bible were full of them where did he get that ad. We just read of him Dan I didn't array. That wasn't anything new was it so what did he do he just parroted that from human right is the that. Now. Listen to this ritual I want to go into this again ritual the prescribed form or order of conducting a religious or solemn ceremony a body of ceremonies or writes a book of rights or ceremonial forms rituals ceremonial act or series of such acts now remember what the synonym finder said ceremonial means what ritual now let's go to Dale restless now and watch what they'll say is. One can not divide the Old Covenant into subdivisions of moral and ceremonial and what do we do. We show a distinction between the moral law the taking Mamet's written at the finger of God and the ceremony so there's those are two separate things aren't they two separate laws are not the same law. All right now watch what he goes on to say Old Covenant moral laws these laws would include all the more. Moral laws within that think a mammoth remember we talked about a subtle Linley. OK I want to read that again so listen carefully Old Covenant moral laws these laws would include all the moral laws within the think commandments now you would think that that would include the Sabbath as well when you are right not so not with his interpretation. Then he divided by saying all covered it gospel shadows these laws include what the ritual laws and ceremonies OK now I like this because I went through his whole book this one right here. And I counted every single time he used these terms right here so we have a ritual he used it ninety nine times in his book Ninety nine times he used the word ritual he used rituals one time ritually two times ceremonies six times ceremonial ten times ceremony four times moral one hundred nine times and morality eight times. And guess what all those in the context of what he's using the words for not administering. Now what did we read in can right and wriggle and been this use these terms as if the Bible's full of them and yet he's used these words Isn't that amazing. And it's OK just not us we just can't use it he could use him but we can does that make any sense absolutely not at all now the source he quotes him wriggle who quoted can write right and H. him Rigaud watch what he says he says this in his book I have his book I went through it from cover to cover and him wriggle says this he he. Himself makes a distinction just like we do and notice he takes the word ceremonial and watch this he quotes Luke two twenty seven and verse twenty four and listen to what he says ceremonial The parents brought in the child Jesus to do with him after the custom of the law all Luke two twenty seven that is to offer a sacrifice verse twenty four so now he says he calls this law right here what ceremonial right now watch this he takes the moral law in now and notice what he says more or not he calls this the moral law and he says this moral The law is not made for a righteous man but for the lawless and disobedient for the ungodly and for sinners or unholy and profane for murder notice the text and quotes First Timothy New Testament First Timothy one nine then he says this This is the dead to the law now friend you know a deck a law means ten commandments you know what I'm amazed what people think you remember years ago in the Supreme Court when they were debating on whether or not to have the Ten Commandments posted on the walls the public schools remember that that would debate went on in the United States Supreme Court. And the interesting thing is I wish they would get it straight. If you don't believe in the fourth one don't call it the ten commandments it is not the Ten Commandments if you want to post nine commandments on the wall then do so but don't call it the think commandment if you take the fourth one out. And makes absolutely no sense. So wriggle himself makes a distinction between the ceremonial and moral you could read his book on his show you and he calls this the deck alone the word deck log their deck it comes from the Greek term Deca means to not nine. Kin OK Everybody with me. That's right. That's exactly right that's exactly right and why does the label of the Tin Tin commandment you hear people say oh there are six hundred thirteen rules and regulations in all this and that listen I ask when you go to James I ask what's the leaven commandment What's the twelfth one thirteenth fourteenth by the way when God wrote the Ten Commandments very interesting in what the Bible says after he completed the Ten Commandments it says and he added no mole or. That means it's complete. Perfect don't touch it leave it just like it is so he goes on to refer to this is the deck law so even himself even they Jim Rigol uses the word moral and even a Jim Rigol used the word ceremonial it's OK for them to use of a not us. That makes no sense. Now let's go to back to the dictionary for a minute listen to this Decca log is spelled two ways actually deck a log or deck a log and that is what the Ten Commandments not nine. Chin. Now people want to say Adventists dreamed all these things up through a false prophet is not all that watch this let's go to the eighteen eighteen twenty eight dictionary what did I say eighteen twenty eight Listen to this the moral law is some Larry contained in that Desha law or what the Ten Commandments written with the finger of God on two tables of stone and delivered to Moses on Mount Sinai OK so here this is the dictionary. Of eighteen twenty eight makes it very clear that in this than invent the word moral law correct Well let's move on the word moral is applicable to actions that are good or evil virtuous or vicious and has reference to the law of God as the standard by which their character is to be determine. Now we didn't see that the dictionary said that in eighteen twenty eight isn't that amazing and don't we talk about character. Though we say that's the only things going on right character this and this moral law a law which prescribes to me in their religious and social duties in other words their duties to God right first set. And to each other right there OK The more laws seminary contained in the thing Commandments I've already said Ellis gone now watch this ceremonial law now this is what the dictionary called the mosaic institution see that that's what you just said about in the side of our ceremonial Abos ake institutions which prescribe the xterm no rights and ceremonies to be observed by the Jews as this think from the moral precepts which are a perpetual obligation and what we say yesterday about not permanent prohibition you know when the Bible says Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain that means never take the name of the Lord thy God in vain and ill never be OK to do that. Course we could be forgiven right. But he's saying don't do that the same word is used to describe your member when God destroyed the world by flood. The same term is used to describe what God said. Add in response that flood he said I'll never destroy the earth again by floods that were never means permanent he's never going to do that. Ceremonial relating to ceremony or Extra an all right ritual according to the forms of established right ends as ceremonial exactness again what Dale is doing is he's taking the fourth commandment not as moral but as ritual law that's what he's doing it is particularly applied to the forms and rites of the Jewish religion as the ceremonial law or worship as distinguished from the moral law from the moral and judicial law ritual here it is pertaining to rights consisting of Rights as ritual services or sat service or sacrifices describing rights as the ritual law a book containing the rights to be observed so here the dictionary makes a clear distinction between moral law says and ceremonial yes or no. Clear distinction. This is all in this dictionary right here now what do I say here all this was long before administers the terms were used to describe the distinction between the two. And we need to see that clearly we don't want to blur the lines here we need to see that clearly OK These terms are in the dictionary with these distinct meanings so if admonition use these terms one time or a thousand times these are dictionary approved terms can we all agree to that so when they try to say well you know add in this use this distinction between moral and ceremonial Well we don't have to defend ourself we could go back to the dictionary say look it up in the dictionary for yourself. So. It's quite obvious that admin is didn't just one day dream it up isn't that true. So we make a distinction clear distinction between the moral law of God which is titled The Tinka Mamet's written with the finger of God Himself and ceremonial all those two things are very clearly the stain OK Now when we go to the moral law we want to look at a point here in verse twenty eight of Exodus Chapter thirty four Listen to what it says and he was there with the Lord forty days by the way didn't I say right there in Genesis and seven Genesis chapter two verse one through three there there we found the seventh they mentioned how many times how many times we see the seven they mention remember what I say three times that's what's there and I said that if it's important to God he mentions it like that remember when I said that right did you know that the Ten Commandments like this right here. Is mentioned in the entire Bible do you know how many times re times. Times Ten Commandments mention three times now let's read it and he was there with the Lord forty days and forty nights he did neither eat bread nor drink water and he wrote in reference to what God did God wrote upon the tables the words of the Covenant what the ting commandments now and go to Deuteronomy Chapter four two and he shall not add unto the word which I commanded you neither shall ye diminish. Friends we better not touch the covenant we better not touch it notice what he says neither shall ye diminish on from it that ye may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you and he declared unto you is covenant which he commanded you to perform even ten commandment and he wrote them up on two tables of stone. Now look at this Deuteronomy five twenty two. These words the Lord to spake unto all your assemblies in the mount out of the midst of the fire of the cloud and of the thick darkness with a great voice and he added no mo and he wrote them into tables of stone and delivered them on to me so leave it alone don't touch it leave it just like it is no just what he says in Deuteronomy ten four and he wrote reference to God wrote on the tables according to the first writings that in commandment Ten Commandments is mentioned three times now let's go back to can write for just a minute. Re times now watch this listen no one can write says the law he was given all newly to the Jews. I'm glad he said that instead of me because his words are going to be accountable my words are going to be accountable right. That's what he says the law was given only to the Jews now. Let's test this to see if this is really true. It's going to be very easy so let's do this here's what this interpretation looks like yes or no. True. You tell me if I'm wrong is this what it looks like if it's given only to the Jews. Yes OK remember what can Wright said except thing the Sabbath the other nine commandments are in the New Testament either in the same words or in substance now rats of comes along and he says all the moral principles found in the tank a mammoth law of though Kevin have been repeated so he uses the word repeated in the new covenant with the exception of the Sabbath so what do we have here I'm going to show you what this looks like. What is this supposed to mean. What is this supposed to mean well let's parallel it D.M. can write said Remember the law was only for the Jews yes that's what he said. OK rats love comes along by the way would we have Mitt that's nine Jewish commandments. No to keep our Christians to keep Nine Jews only Commandments repeated in the New Testament. Remember what can write said he said nine of them in words or in substance or repeated in the New Testament. OK So to keep nine commandments repeated the New Testament would mean that we would be under nine tenths of the law yes or no you know I wasn't very good in math in school I was a very good back then take too much to figure this out have you ever ever heard somebody say oh we're not under the law we're under grace. And then turn right around in the next press A Oh we don't have keep the Sabbath nine commandments are repeated in the New Testament so what would that mean then according to this interpretation we are under nine tenths of the law yes or no. And to top it all off Jewish law because they said is for the Jews only. Right. Were not under the law but were under grace and they quote Romans six fourteen yes they do that. Not under the law but were under grace is only said to get around the Sabbath right. They don't say that with the other commandments do they all mean when you bring up the Sabbath right. Well we're not in the law we're under grace only bring up seven. Not one single tax and all the Bible refers to the law only to mean. The SAB. Did you get that. So there's a contradiction we're going to look at it anybody that says we're not under the law have a having a misinterpretation of that passage where make the Bible contradict itself not only the Bible contradict itself this is just one example here I'm just giving you one example there's many through the New Testament I'm just giving you one example here you see not only would it make Paul or I mean the Bible contradict itself but it would make Paul contradict Paul. Because Roman six fourteen says you're not under the low efficiency to Paul says Honor thy father and mother that's the low yes or no so that would be a contradiction wouldn't if you have a false interpretation of this that. It would be a contradiction. OK. The best defense in any case if you've ever been in law in a court case. You've got some of you have been summoned to a court case before jury duty that kind of thing or what's interesting the best defense in any case is what the law itself. The law itself so we're going to test this thing today to see if it's really true we're going to go to the law now watch this let's go to the cross and look at the tink Commandments at the cross is that fair because this is what people say REST OF says the commandments were nailed to the cross and so did can ride in H. in wriggles they all say that law was nailed to cross We're going to look at it so let's go to the cross let's look at the Ten Commandments at the cross is that fair OK The argument goes like this the Law was nailed to the cross Have you ever heard that before. Nine of the Ten Commandments were reenacted or. Repeated Or restated in the New Testament except the Sabbath the Fourth Commandment Have you heard that. Well let's test it now notice what cautions too by the way we could spin we could spend months just on this Ted I'm serious I'm just giving you some key points highlights but we could spend a long time on these tests. Notice what the text says Paul says and collages to fourteen context remember contacts. Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us which was contrary to us and took it out of the way nailing it is cross. Then in verse sixteen it says Let no man therefore judge you in meat or in drink or and respect him in the holy day or of the new moon or of the Sabbath days now here's where these guys go they flock to these texts right here what's the title of our series Facing the critics we're not going to run from this. We don't have to run from these texts. Watch this notice if Asians to fifteen a parallel passage efficiency to fifteen talking about the same exact thing as what Paul said in Colossians and notice what Paul says in efficiency to fifteen having a Bali in his flesh that the enmity even the law of commandments contained in ordinance is for to make in him self of Twain one new man so making peace. So let's look at interpretation if it's really the Ten Commandments that was nailed to the cross and that's their interpretation Well let's put the Ten Commandments in the tax How is that is that fair that's the interpretation let's put it in the text blotting out the handwriting of ordinances the Ten Commandments with lot of mout right. That was against us which was contrary to us and took it out of the what took it the tin commandment out of the way nailing it the Ten Commandments to his cross that's their interpretation friends. That's their interpretation right there. Do we agree that that's the what they're saying. That's what they're saying that's their claim that's their interpretation so goes the argument like this the Law was nailed to the cross the Sabbath nailed to the cross the fourth commandment was abolished. That's our interpretation yes or no. All right here's what I'm one of do we're going to nail the Tinkham image to the Crow. And watch what happens the law and nailed to the cross by the way the law now the cars don't take it down from the cross. Once it's been nailed on the cross don't take it down. You understand what I'm saying it's now there leave it there don't take it down. Don't take nine off the cross and bring it down it's nailed up on that cross Tinkham image Yes Riesling from their interpretation OK now let's challenge that let's look at it carefully. The First Commandment says that house out have no other gods before me right. Is there ever a time that it would be OK to have other gods. Is this commandment any turn commandment. How the end was an eternal commandment nailed in abolished at the cross. I sure like to hear an answer to that. You are going to give me an answer that. You do understand where I'm coming from. Now watch this what is wrong with this commandment. That it had to be nailed to the cross. Nothing wrong with that commandment. There anything wrong with that commandment. Why then would it need to be nailed to the Crow. Let's go to the next one. That not make it into the any graven image or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above or that is in the Earthman either that is in the water under the earth. That I shall not bow down I sell to them you know why the law of God protects us you know what if the whole world I'll prove it right now if the whole world kept to think amendments we wouldn't have this problem we're in today would have to worry about locking your house would have to worry about somebody stealing your car none of that. If everybody in the world did that. We would be worried about things would. Be all the problems or areas that are not bowed down they sell to them nor serve them for either the Lord thy God am a jealous God Why because he loves us if you know what if you didn't make a graven image then you wouldn't bow down to. The law of God protects us friends it actually protects us from those things I mean think about it. The kind of diseases people have today would they have those diseases if they obeyed God. No they wouldn't would be absolutely not. Visiting the nick would have the father's upon the children of the third and fourth generation of them that hate me and here it is and showing mercy that's Cassatt in Hebrew meaning grace when people say Old Testament law and new testament grace yes what grace is in the Ten Commandments and God shows His people who he gives grace to IN THE think humans right here notice what he says. And showing mercy that is Grace and the thousands of them that love is in the Ten Commandments FRAND It's right there. Them that love me and break my commandments. Keep my commandments and that context what Commandments is he talking about the ones they want to nail to the girl. Right. So what's wrong with love. It's right there in the Ten Commandment anything wrong with love providing it's the right kind of low right. OK There it is was loving God nailed to the cross. Think it through for him that's what the text says in the think Mamet's. Was a loving God nailed to the cross. What is wrong with this commandment that it had to be nailed to the cross I don't see anything wrong with that commandment you nothing at all. Let's move on or not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that take of his name in vain. What is wrong with this commandment that it had to be nailed to the cross. Anybody having ideas watch this. Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy six days shout their labor and do all they work now notice carefully what the text says let's really dive into this and notice carefully what the text says but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord is it the Jews Sabbath. Is it is the German Sabbath or Russian Sabbath or American Sabbath No Who Sabbath is it it's the Lord's it's his possession. The seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God in it shall not do any work there is your permanent prohibition now the bible makes a clear distinction between what's permissible work and what's not in the Bible does what's permissible and what's not permissible Now watch what he goes on to say here listen to this for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth and the sea and all that in them is and what did he do and he rested the seventh day not seventh day don't have somebody try to pull that off on you Dr D. James Kennedy out of Fort Lauderdale Florida he's passed away now Presbyterian. And I've read is. Exposition of this commandment. And what he has said is that it simply means one day in seven Sabbath not the Sabbath this is the Sabbath. You know it's not any one day of seven of your choice friends it's the seventh day and notice what the Bible says so he rest of the seventh day wherefore this is the reason why just like in Genesis remember when we read in Genesis where for the Lord bless the Sabbath day and how did it now let's break this down to look at it carefully. What is wrong with this commandment of the Lord blessed and how would. You say simply because the fair sees perverted the Sabbath doesn't mean the Sabbath has abolished. I mean we see relationships today in the context of marriage right that is inappropriate according to the Bible yes or no right OK so simply because a person has perverted that commandment does not do away with that commandment. Do we agree to that. I find no. Thing wrong with the commandment to God has blessed I find nothing wrong with the commandment of God is made a holy right there it is. So what is wrong with resting on the seventh day is God did. Anything wrong with that. Nothing wrong with that. What is wrong with what God did in creating havoc in earth and the sea in six days that's what the commandment says yes or no anything wrong with that do you see anything wrong with that commandment. What is wrong with this commandment that it had to be nailed to the crawl. You see the ceremonial ritual laws holy need to Jesus. When Jesus did that the ceremonials ceased. Moral is eternal. Honor thy father and my mother that I days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God give a thirty what is wrong with this commandment that it had to be nailed to the cross anything. Not at all. That I should not kill. You see where I'm going with this what's the best offense we have friends the law itself right. Thou shalt not kill what is wrong with the commandment that it had to be nailed across this very commandment right here boy if that was open season we'd all be in big trouble would. Write. That we should all commit adultery. What about that commandment. What is wrong with this commandment that had to be nailed to the crawl. That's what they've done. That I shall not steal. What is wrong with this commandment that it had to be nailed to the cross. That I should not bear false witness against the neighbor. That nailed to the cross what's wrong with it. Finally the last one that I shall not covet. Thy Neighbor's House. Neighbor's wife nor his manservant on his maidservant nor his ox or his ass or anything that is that I neighbors what is wrong with this commandment that it had to be nailed to the cross. All right we've just gone through the think commandments. The Bible says the law of the Lord is what. Perfect Now why do you believe love the Lord is perfect just because it says so well God's own finger did it. Is own finger. OK the law of the Lord is perfect converting the soul the testimony of the Lord is sure making wise the simple. So if we nail all the Tinker Mamet's to the cross there it is thank you ma'am it's nailed nailed right there all of a nail what is wrong with this command to had been nailed to cross including all the commandments there well this interpretation nails the think commandments of the cross you see it on the cross all of them nailed right. Is this interpretation the nails the think a man has to cross the true interpretation according to the Bible. What this interpretation wants us to believe is that the Ten Commandments were nailed to the cross and then. Reenacted repeated Or restated except the Sabbath the Fourth Commandment now we're going to test this we're going to look at it now this is what they're saying they've unveiled nine of those and brought him down off the cross are you with me to restate him or repeat them or reenact them they've brought nine of them down yes or no that's exactly what they've done in other words this interpretation wants us to believe that nine tenths of the law was unveiled and taken down off of the cross and restated repeated reenacted except the Sabbath so this interpretation would mean that out of ten commandments of the law that was nailed to the cross nine of the ten have been reenacted in the New Testament. And only one remains on the cross the Sabbath commandment the fourth commandment right according to this interpretation correct. Now let's ask this question Do you really and truly believe this. Doesn't make any sense does it. Nine commandments reenacted Well let's look at it now. Jesus blotted out in abolish the think Commandments is what they're saying nailing them to His cross but then reenacted repeated restated ninth commandment except the Sabbath that was against us which was gone pray to us and took it out of the way nailing it to His cross reenacting the handwritings of ordinances nine commandments right. That was against us well there was ten but now they've taken one away brought them back used them again now let's look at it what this interpretation teaches us is that ten commandments were nailed all on the cross and then nine commandments of the law came down from the cross reenacted repeated restated and the only one that remains on the cross is the Sabbath the Fourth Commandment now. This is what the Ninth Commandment theory wants us to believe look at this carefully. You see a problem with that. And you see it clearly Old Testament Tinka Mamet's right New Testament nine commandments no Fourth Commandment. Take note if this is true then we should be able to read in them to Testament every single tax that repeats the commandments except the fourth commandment. You see where I'm going now don't you so what do you think I'm going to do now class. They're going to have to prove those nine commandments restated re. Well we're going to look at it we're going to go to the very tax they use and we're going to check it out if you are asked to give Bible text a show that nine commandments are repeated in the New Testament that's why I say challenge them say will give me those texts to show me. So if you are asked to give Bible texts show that nine commandments are repeated in the New Testament what Bible text would you give to show each individual tax that repeats the nine commandments from what Bible tax was the ninth commandment repeating in order to be repeated it had to have already that is previously been in existence you don't repeat something for the first time. You repeat something that has already been and we all agree to that. So from one Bible tax was nine commandments repeated Now I like these Bible texts right here listen to what the Bible tells beloved believe not every sphere but what but try the spirits whether they are God because many false prophets are gone out in the world so we're going to try and now watch this we're going to try Dale Del rats of gives the following text to prove his ninth commandment repeated theory on pages two fifty eight and two fifty nine of his book so what are we going to do let's try the spirits and. See if what they say lines up with the Bible OK Is that fair this is what Dale says right here it's all quoted right here I put it on the screen my want to take picture that. This is those pages in his book that he quotes nine commandments repeated in the New Testament Now notice up here to the left this is all his stuff I just put the arrow there this is all it is a notice to the left at the top he says that the law now what does Dec log mean friends ten not nine. They need to get it straight. Now no other God so he quotes Exodus twenty first three then he quotes in the New Testament those texts first create didn't age six and if Asians for six Now does that all the way through but not watch this when he comes to the Sabbath about us in the Christian era keeping the Sabbath he says none and he says none. OK now we're going to test this were to see something very very interesting. According to the wrath of chart these texts are to prove his conclusion that nine commandments are repeated in the New Testament except the Fourth Commandment question statement who repeats the nine commandments remember something to be repeated had already have been said correct. You don't repeat some for the first time by the way I know you ladies know because you go tell your husband and you take the trash out. How many husbands know that's what the ladies say. Now is she telling you that for the first time. She's not tell you ever the first time this you. Know she's told you a few ties right. Well let's see what if these Di commands are really repeated so let's examine carefully every. Single Tax that they'll raft of gives to prove it is Ninth Amendment theory and here they are now I'm going to show you something here very interesting we're going to plug all these taxes in at the right place and who said these things so here's a paradigm a put on the screen for you I really like this because it makes it very clear and to the point. Dale quotes. The seventh commandment to Jesus says in Matthew five twenty seven and twenty eight so he's quoting these texts before the cross. How then can you repeat something before it ever happened to be abolished at the cross. That's right because it already said that OK right you understand that we're going to see a better picture in a minute so Jesus said this right here before he ever went to the cross. I. Now watch this in thirty one A.D. Jesus that's found in Matthew six nine said that. Thirty one A.D. Jesus and Martin one thousand that's the fifth commandment so you have the third commandment here Jesus says you have the fifth one here and you have the seventh commandment here you have the ninth and the tenth year so Jesus only quoted these commandments before he ever went to the cross Got it OK so we're going to put the cross right there in the middle remember the old testament say was drink Mamet's right New Testament nine commandments again friends don't call it ten if you mean none. So this is what the nine commandment three wants us to believe now look at this carefully. The law Latinka Mamet's Now Jesus said this very thing right here before he ever went to the cross the nine commandment interpretation needs to clarify define what is meant by re. When acted repeated Or restated Now we went through the dictionary on these terms didn't they need to define what do they mean by these terms. How can Jesus prior to his death on the cross reenact repeat or restate what hasn't been abolished until the Crow. Right. Now let's look at John John quotes the second commandment and the Sixth Commandment So John only quotes these two commandments that's found in first John Chapter five years twenty one and first John chapter three verse fifteen over here to the right so Jesus quoted these here to the cross and John quotes these after the cross he only quotes the second and sixth commandment. Now I'm using Dale Rastus Tex I'm not using my name I'm using his tax got it. OK. So John does this after the cross around ninety eighty John writes First John five twenty one he refers to the second commandment and in one thousand nine hundred eighty first John Chapter three he refers to the six a man got it or better Santa That's after the cross. Now we've got a serious problem. Because the both of all the text Dale Rast of quotes for his ninth commandment read a statement or repeat There he comes from the Postle Paul. Why is that a problem well guess what Paul wasn't converted to about three and a half years after the resurrection of Jesus. You know that remember Paul was at the stoning of Stephen. Remember that. OK so now watch this remember Jesus quotes the seven hundred ten fifth and. Night before the cross John quotes the second and sixth after the cross now Paul amazing. Paul quotes the First Commandment the second all these text right here Paul's quoting. The six seven a night in tenth and then. Underneath this one he's quoting the first commandment and then over here he's quoting the seven and then in fishes for six is quoting and these text here he's quoting the first second fifth and eighth and here Paul quotes the third commandment and in Hebrews thirteen five Paul quotes that hint hint commandment all right now remember the rats the. Throws the Sabbath out right. So here's what he's doing now what's interesting is Paul in First Corinthians eight quotes the first commandment he did that in fifty nine eighty fifth the nine eighty. Now when you start looking at the commandments quoted you've got a serious problem because what if none of those commandments was repeated until when that date was. That mean from the cross to that point there was no first commandment. Until Paul said so repeated it. So only Paul after the cross and he's quoting these Commandments right here according to the rats A But see when you see it like this it makes a big difference sixty five adeep Paul quotes First Timothy six. Verse one and he's quoting the third commandment. So here's the question When was the nine commandments repeated use all those dates when they were repeated. When the nine commandments was repeated did the mark did that mark the time from that point forward. That's very important question. Because here look at the time span between when Paul said that particular commandment from the cross member of supposed to be nailed to the cross nine commandments repeated and then here Paul all these years later repeats. So what do we have in Commandments abolish teen efficiency to fifteen Sabbath abolished number four remember they put to think a man is there then they restate or repeat now years fifty eight Here's which would Paul was saying these commandments all this time after the crawls there's a whole lot of years between there don't you think. So my point is does that mean then that the repeat of that commandment never happened here meaning it didn't exist from year to year. That's a problem isn't it a very serious problem. The Paul's conversion is in Acts Chapter nine and it was about three and a half or so years after the crucifixion shortly after the stoning of Stephen. A And look at these dates along the way there in which Paul would have said the what was repeated. Right exactly so just what point in time did Paul repeat the nine commandments Paul at the earliest could have repeated the commandments no earlier than thirty five A.D. when Paul was converted as three and a half years actually. Now read them again as reenactments repeats or restatements Paul had found himself a sinner right just like you said but had repented and found pardon through Christ at his conversion experience after the cross after the cross it seems strange how Paul could have repeated nine of the commandments years after it was abolished. And years before. He repeated. That's confusion isn't it. That is confusion. And what was the original source that Paul repeated from Book Chapter and verse. So we're using his tax in the paradigm to show the fallacy of his interpretation that's exactly what we're doing right here you know why if you study this paradigm out and really look at it carefully and go through these texts you will see clearly what I'm talking about. Right there it is there is what Paul looking at right there OK So now let's summarize this. Dale Ratz of says the Sabbath does not mention right here none none so it went from the first commandment to the tenth commandment we covered them all in the paradigm covered them all. What Radcliffe doesn't tell you is look at all the passages repeated by Paul. The biggest ball is from Paul. Of what is repeated so what am I trying to say here's what I'm saying. What was the original source the Paul repeated from Book Chapter and verse. Take note repeat does not mean Institute or starting from that point in time of the repeat repeat comes from a previous source yes or no. So what original source that was it that Paul repeated from starts with the first commandment and the ends with the tenth commandment book chapter and verse this question poses some serious problems for what I call the nine commandment theory is that's exactly what it is Friends a theory got it. How do you count the nine commandments in the New Testament that has been reenacted repeated or restarted did you get the question there. How do you count. All right here's what we're going to do and why dorter are the nine commandments in the New Testament that has been reenacted repeated a restated in what order watch this let's start with a think a man if you member when you were children when I was in the Methodist church growing up in V.B. has a little math of this guy we went through the tink commandments. Methodist Church B.B.S. commandments. Now can you tell me why as a children as a children growing up we talked to think about him. And I'm talking about outside of the seven they had a church I'm not talking about heaven as I'm talking about the Methodist Church the Baptist Church the Present Danger Lutheran Church non-denominational why we talk the think a man with his children. And then as adults we are taught what nine commandments Yes. When you say that is confusion. It's the Ten Commandments. Where the first commandment and the tenth commandment is found right there got to first commandment in the tenth commandment right so looking at the law of God as a child how would a child tell to Commandment according to the Ninth Commandment very. Because remember they take the Fourth Commandment out correct. Yes OK So is this how we're going to count it is this how a teacher would teach a child to count to ten commandments today in school. First one second third fifth sixth seventh eighth night and that how they would do it in school today so my view here teachers anybody or teachers is that the way you would teach kids in school today. Is this how a teacher would teach a child to count the ten commandments one through nine and call it Dan. Is this how a teacher would teach a child to count the commandments one through ten like that. See one two three Forget the fourth one five six seven eight nine. It's amazing how people call nine commandments Ten Commandments. Is this how a teacher would teach a child to count the commandments one through nine One thing is for sure this nine commandment theory has certainly changed the law of God. Yes or no and they only parroted that from who Rome. See that. This would certainly be confusing to a child to call the Ten Commandments nine commandments Yes. That would be very confusing to a child also as a child I do not remember that the Sabbath commandment was called ritual. Did you ever hear that as a child. Not all you've been raised as had been as I know some of you been from different backgrounds we ever talked at the Fourth Commandment was ritual I was never taught that the Methodist Baptist church or. So say when you look at the law of God Every time you look at it it's going to be the same thing you see every exact time you open up the Ten Commandments you're not going to be able to get around this friends it will always be there got it yes or no but this is what they want to believe right here. Because see if you have ten and you take away one. You have this you know when I was a little child I remember the teacher one day she. Five little marbles and I was just a little guy and she puts five marbles on the floor and she says now if I take away three marbles one two three how many marbles do I have left and I said still enough to play with. This is wrong isn't this. Is they they got to switch the commandments they've tampered with the Law God yes or no they have tampered with the Law God all what did I say all Sunday keepers have changed the law of God by removing the Sabbath the fourth commandment. Yes or no. But which nine commandments are we looking at that's the question right now ask the question this puts the Ninth Commandment theory on the horns of a dilemma do not call the Ten Commandments Ten Commandments if there's only one. So why do we have this is what they show us we don't believe that Bible doesn't teach it so what's our conclusion today here's our conclusion rats live says on the other hand what Israel was commanded to do remember we read that yesterday. What Israel was commanded to do on the Sabbath would have been done naturally by Adam and Eve therefore no command would have been needed so I'm going to take his own statement I'm going to hand it back to him say Dale just like no command was needed in Genesis no command is needed in the New Testament either Why because it is the norm it has happen from the very beginning. From the very beginning Genesis chapter two yes or no. And remember what he said there is no command for mankind to rest in the Genesis account but what did he say no command would have been needed. Well see they'll say Are you really want to know what they'll say I'll tell you what to say I was sure Jesus kept the Sabbath because he was a Jew. That's exactly what that's a Jesus kept the Sabbath because he was a she. Yes. Well Paul was a Hebrew Hebrew by the way the first time he brews mentioned in the entire Bible yes it applies to Abraham. Hebrew Abraham Yes. Yes that's exactly right that's exactly right because that's what this gentleman said earlier right from the start. What was written what was put in the side of the art versus what was put in dark and also they do deal with that text a little bit but very little so here's where our going to summarize is why wouldn't the same be true for the born again Christians in the New Testament if it was good enough for Adam to naturally keep Why would it be for us as New Testament Christians right. Now rats of has no proof from the Bible that the Sabbath has been abolished in the New Testament no proof unless they can be proven remember what did I say that is an assumption assuming without proof we read that right out of the dictionary didn't we. Unless they could be proven from the Bible that the Sabbath has been abolished in the New Testament it still stands Amen it still stands So let's summarize it in true interpretation versus false interpretation true interpretation the Ten Commandments was not nailed to the cross the law of ceremonies and ordinances was nailed to the crawl that's the true interpretation false interpretation the Ten Commandments was nailed to the cross and nine commandments were repeated the Sabbath was ritual law not moral that is a false interpretation. OK. Did I make it clear today and everybody understand anybody confused about what we said today. OK. Well see he was still alive they say that it was now the cross when Jesus died on the cross at his death. At his Dead Sea. Yeah well well if you want to sabot text for after the group by the way the New Cut it was ratified at the death of Jesus not the resurrection. There are three days too late but people say I I keep Sunday in honor of the resurrection in the New Covenant No the new covenant was ratified by the Blood of Jesus on the cross. On the cross new covenant cross so if you want a commandment for keeping the Sabbath after the ratification of the Covenant look at Luke Chapter twenty four actually twenty three let's get our Bibles you want to look at it real quick. And then we'll wrap it up but in Luke this is amazing text this was after the New Covenant was ratified in Luke Chapter twenty three let's look at it real quick here Luke Chapter twenty three and notice here in verse. I'm sorry yeah right here Luke Chapter twenty three verse fifty six you can start a verse fifty four and read through that. But notice what what what they say here what what the Bible saying and they return This is after the crucifixion This is after the covenant was ratified by the Blood of Jesus and once it's ratified nobody could add to it and nobody could take away from it. And notice what the Bible says and they were. Returned and prepared spices anointment and rested the Sabbath day according to the commandment What commandment Exodus Chapter twenty verse eight through eleven. Got it that was after the ratification of the cut and once the cover has been ratified you can't touch it you can't change it's like you're willing Testament. People go through probate and people confide in relatives fight but I tell you what when it's law it's law right and you have to go through the process so there's a commandment after the ratification of the Covenant right there OK All right let we ready to pray let's pray Father we just want to thank you so much for loving us we thank you for the time that we've come together today and I pray Father that you are you will be with each and every one here today Lord bless each one in the special way in Jesus wonderful name I pray a minute.
