What are the Basic Commandments of God?

Why do I spend so much time talking about the commandments of God?

It's simple. 

Most Spirit-filled churches have neglected to teach God's moral commandments! That lack has caused many churches to be morally deficient, and they are on a downward spiral into the abyss of ungodliness. Immorality runs rampant in some churches! If you don't know that, then you are isolated or are sticking your head in the sand! 

Faith for obeying God's moral guidelines can only come by hearing and hearing the Word of God on the subject! (Romans 10:16, 17 NKJV) People have had little faith that leads to obedience in this area of God's moral guidelines because of little to no preaching under the anointing to teach this mighty subject!

Sometimes, to strike a balance, one has to spend MORE time on a subject than one would IF the subject were being taught. This is the situation today. I have been to churches for years and rarely ever heard anything about God's moral guidelines. So, this is a part of my mission. I have to teach what the Lord gives me for the church, and a part of it has to do with God's moral commandments. 

In some quarters, teaching obedience to the moral commandments of God is a rejected subject because of wrong ideas and teachings on grace. There is a crazy, ungodly, hyper, pseudo-grace movement in Christianity that is an abomination before God. There are preachers turning the grace of God into lasciviousness (meaning "loose living"- see Jude 1:4 NET- “a license for evil or NKJV-lewdness”).

Don't be deceived! Get informed! Get it right in your heart and thinking with the free resources below! 

I cover things in this new article that I haven't covered on the subject before. Here are a few excerpts from this NEW article:

"Do you know what God commands you and me to do? Of course, we are commanded to believe (trust and obey) in Jesus and His great sacrifice. That is first, but after you come to Jesus and make Him your Lord, then what? If you will follow this teaching closely, and look up the numerous Scripture references, you will be enlightened and empowered to live for Jesus Christ. This is not a complete list, but it is a basic starting point. Be blessed!" 

"Following is a list of the Ten Commandments with the exception of the commandment to keep the Sabbath. Why don’t I include the Sabbath as mandatory when teaching Christians? The Sabbath was instituted as one of the covenant requirements for Israel, and for them alone. The Sabbath was never commanded to any other nation or people except Israel........."

"............Below are quoted the Ten Commandments from Exodus 20:1-7, 12-17 (NET),[1]with the exception of the Sabbath. Then, I give you references to where these commandments can be found in the New Testament..............."

".............Are these commandments valid today for Christians? Obviously, they are valid today from the many verses I gave you from the New Testament. Some very foolish people deny their relevance. How should we understand this? Should we reject or replace God’s commandments? We should NEVER do that, according to Jesus, Paul, and the rest of the NEW TESTAMENT!.............."


[1]See also Deuteronomy 5:7-21."

Do you have questions about grace, law, faith, and the commandments? Are these things being taught correctly at your church? The following two free resources will answer truckloads of questions, and set you free!  


What are you hearing at your church? Are you being taught that biblical commandments are unnecessary to regulate Christian behavior under grace? Is your pastor telling you that you no longer have to obey the commandments of God, and that it is ONLY love and grace now? Are we to "X" out all commandments today? What do pastors mean when they say that the church is ONLY under the commandment of love? Why are many churches rejecting God’s commandments? Is this the revelation of the hour?

What are the consequences of denying biblical commandments? Do you know what is happening to churches that preach a gospel that denies all moral commandments as recorded in nine (9) of the Ten Commandments, and all over the Bible? Why is lawlessness running rampant in so many sectors of the church? Why have adultery, fornication, homosexuality, pedophilia, theft, covetousness, occult practices, idolatry, and many other immoral activities spread into many churches? Could it have something to do with the denial, rejection, minimizing, or replacing of God’s moral laws revealed in Scripture? You bet it does!

It is truly amazing to me that pastors often don't see the correlation between loose morals in their churches and their lack of teaching the moral commandments of God. Faith in God's moral guidelines also comes by hearing and hearing the Word of God (Romans 10:17). I've been in churches where year after you year nothing is taught about God's moral guidelines. I am not exaggerating! 

This free 62 page PDF, “Did the Grace of God Cancel Biblical Commandments” will teach you WHY Christians MUST obey MORAL commandments according to the New Testament! We also teach you WHY Christians are NOT subject to CEREMONIAL commandments that were meant ONLY for Israel. This is vital information for pastors, churches, and the entire Body of Christ! Don't be deceived! Download this free 62 page PDF using this link. It fills in some gaps in our book, "Faith that Receives the Grace of God." They compliment each other, and they are completely free of charge. Be mightily blessed!




Faith that Receives the Grace of God is so important for you and me right now! There is an abundance of strange teaching in the area of grace. Grace has become for many a proposition "sin all you want without accountability", and a "do-nothing to receive from God." Grace for many is a rejection of Biblical moral commandments, and for others it is a denial of the words of Jesus. Grace, when it is in its right place Scripturally, is beautiful, abundant, and powerful, but it can be misused and misapplied. Unfortunately, grace is often taught wrongly. Instead of amazing grace, it has become gross, devilish, pseudo “grease” and not the Blood-bought-grace taught in the New Testament! This book was written so the Biblical perspective on faith and grace could be clearly presented by using verses in their context and according to the intent of the writers of the New Testament. If you have questions in this area, this free 266-page book is for you. Download the free PDF file here.
