1)     “...if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.” Matthew 19:17.

2)    The Seventh Commandment of God

    “Thou shalt not commit adultery.” Exodus 20:14.

     The Hebrew word for “adultery” is “na’aph”, and it translates and means “to commit adultery, to apostatize” (Strong’s, word #5003), and to apostatize means to “abandon one’s faith” (Webster’s New World Dictionary, under word “apostatize”).

     “Surely as a wife treacherously departeth from her husband, so have ye dealt treacherously with me, O house of Israel, saith the Lord.”  But “Turn, O backsliding children, saith the Lord; for I am married unto you...” Jeremiah 3:20, 14.

3)    The Eighth Commandment of God

     “Thou shalt not steal.” Exodus 20:15.

     The Hebrew word for “steal” is “ganab”, and it translates and means “to thieve, to deceive” (Strong’s, word #5003).

4)    The Ninth Commandment of God

     “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.” Exodus 20:16.

     The Hebrew word for “false” is “sheqer”, and it translates and means “an untruth, a sham, falsehood, lie” (Strong’s, word #8267).

5)   The Tenth Commandment of God

6)    The first 4 commandments deal with our relationship with God.  While the last 6 deal with our relationship with other human beings.  The first 4 commandments deal with our commitment to God: showing who He was and His supremacy in our lives, how to worship Him, how to communicate with and about Him, and how to spend our time with Him.  The last 6 commandments deal with governing our interactions with others, showing that we are to respect and uphold authority, life, moral purity, possessions and property of others, truth, and contentment.

     Each one of these commandments are very closely connected and blend together forming  just one body of law.  For example: If a follower of God decided not to worship God on His Sabbath day – being the seventh-day of the week or Saturday, then they would have broken the 4th commandment.  By choosing to do their own pleasure on God’s rest day, this follower of God would be making their own desires greater than following the will of God, thereby making their own desires into a god, and thus breaking the 2nd commandment.  They would also be placing their own will as a supreme god before the Lord God, and thus breaking the 1st commandment.
     As the Sabbath day itself is the day of the Lord God – His holy day, but this follower did their own thing upon this day, then they coveted what belonged to God, and thus broke the 10th commandment.  Since they choose not to devote this day to worshiping God, they have actually stolen time away that should have been given to Him, thus breaking the 8th commandment.  Neither are they showing the honor and respect due to God who has manifested such fatherly love and care over them, thus breaking the 5th commandment.
     By not keeping the seventh day as a holy worship day to God, yet professing to be a follower of God, then they have broken the 9th commandment by falsely claiming to be something that they really are not.  They have also taken God’s name or character in vain and broken the 3rd commandment because they are not following God’s example of resting upon this Sabbath day, and thus are not manifesting the same righteous character of God whom they profess to serve.
     By choosing not to remember to keep the Sabbath day holy, thereby willingly committing sin and deserving the penalty of death, then they have actually chosen death for themselves – or are committing suicide – which breaks the 6th commandment.  And since they voluntarily chose to be a follower of God, and entered into a covenant relationship with God – agreeing to remain faithful to Him as His bride, and God agreeing to remain faithful to them as their Husband, then because they have chosen to break the Sabbath they and are no longer upholding their part of this marriage contract or covenant.  As they are no longer faithful to their righteous God and loving Husband, but have now committed sin against Him and united with another – who is the author of sin, they have thereby committed adultery and broken the 7th commandment.

     “Whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of [breaking] all.” James 2:10.

7)    “...all thy commandments are righteousness.” Psalms 119:172.

     “All unrighteousness is sin”. 1 John 5:17.

     “And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the LORD our God, as he hath commanded us.” Deuteronomy 6:25.

8)    “The devil sinneth from the beginning.” 1 John 3:8.

     “Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law; for sin is the transgression of the law.” 1 John 3:4.

     "He that committeth sin is of the devil”. 1 John 3:8.

9)    “...as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee.” Isaiah 62:5.

     “For I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.” 2 Corinthians 11:2.

     “I am married unto you”. Jeremiah 3:14.

     “[The Lord God Jesus Christ says to you] I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.  As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters. [You say to Christ] As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons.  I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.  He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love....My beloved is mine, and I am his”. Song of Solomon 2:1-4, 16.

10)    “For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous....And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.  He that hath the Son hath life; [and] he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.” 1 John 5:3, 11-12.
