(1) GODS GREATEST COMMANDMENT OF ALL, Deut. 6:4-9
Deuteronomy 6:4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:
Deuteronomy 6:5 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
Deuteronomy 6:6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
Deuteronomy 6:7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
Deuteronomy 6:8 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.
Deuteronomy 6:9 And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.
Hear o Israel, your Elohim, your plural God, is one.
Eloh is singular, add –im and you have the plural for 3 o more. Kibutz is a village. Kibizim is 3 or more villages. Our plural God is a indivisible union of 3 persons. If you need to argue, go argue with God. This, to the best knowledge available, is how Gods Word reads. Compare Isaiah 48: 12-16, 1 John 5:7, Mark
This is the greatest of all the commandments of God. It has has two parts :
FIRST PART, Love the Lord thy God with ALL your might….
Do you suppose that 90 % is enough? Or 99. 5%?
Forget it. It’s all or nothing with God. If anything is more important to you than your GOD, you have a different god.
Jesus will not settle for anything less, then to be the ruler of
Your life. He is the king of kings and the lord of lords. If you don’t want Him, he will never force himself. You will have the other one (Satan) automatically.
When you invite Christ Jesus to be the ruler of your life, and mean it, you become a Christian. For you all things become new.
In the SECOND PART of the greatest commandment, “THESE WORDS I command you today”…represent the BIBLE.
The word of God is the bible. At that time it represented all from Genesis to that part of Deuteronomy. TODAY, it is the ENTIRE bible. They received the entire Bible in the first century AD. It is the only writing ever to be preserved by the signature of God, by a mathematical base in every word of the original language of the Textus Receptus, codes connecting the chapters, mathematical chains connecting the books of the bible, by a quarter of the bible being pure prophecy and the very quality of the witness and message.
There are three steps commanded by God within the second part of the greatest commandment.
a) STUDY, meditate upon the Word of God until it is –in your head? No! Until it is in your heart – your innermost being, where you live, in your spirit, in your works.
b) Then TEACH the Bible to your family, when you rise up, when you lie down, when you walk out, when you…..
c) Then SHARE the Bible with the public you can reach – “write God’s Word on the posts of your house, on your gate…”
If you reject Gods Greatest Commandment you also reject God.
