MOUNT SINAI

And the Giving of the Law to Moses and Humanity


























































































































































































































































































 

 

 

What did God give Moses on Mount Sinai?  The history of the peninsula of Sinai was treacherous, and the setting of the mountain and its name are powerful reminders that man is in trouble and needs help to live godly.

Please recall that Ham, if he went to Africa during those first days after the Flood, was not bothered by God even up until our day. Well, several tribes almost made it but stopped in the Middle East near the Red Sea.  In Palestine, there were the Canaanites and the Jebusites, along with the Sodomites.  They all were destroyed by God's command in order to drive them off the turf of Shem.  In what we now call Sinai, there was a tribe of Hamites called the Sin.  Light weight preachers imagine that the name Sin has something to do with the English word "sin." Not so-- it is only a tribal name.

The tribe of the Sin worshipped the god Sin, and they called him Elohim at times, AND they assigned him a wife.  This was the old Nimrod cult at work again.  Mohammed at first adapted to it in his "Satanic Verses" with the three goddesses, but later he dropped them when he saw that his monotheism was in trouble.

The Sin were very pagan.  Jehovah sent Moses up their mountain so that the single holy law code could be handed down to man.  This law code was a monumental turning point in earth's history. It was then, and still is,  in direct proportion to man's use of this law code that man has peace and prosperity.  We are not only interested in the Ten Commandments.  We must look at ALL of the codes given to Moses, for in them are the ONLY ways of living the good life on earth.

We cannot avoid putting the whole context of the Sinai law in this study.  You need to read it ALL, not just the "Ten."  Here it is, and I shall add brief discussions of Moses' law, which is really God's Law, as we go along:


Exodus chapter 20

Exodus 20:1 And God spake all these words, saying,
2 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

[ So, modern man learns this thousands of years later that many toys of civilization become gods which destroy faith in God and Jesus Christ. ] 
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:

[ Islam takes this literally. The Roman Catholic church has thousands of images and devices which men reverence instead of God.  Rome tries desperately to justify this blasphemy. They have this law written in their consciences. ]
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

[ Roman Catholics in many countries give birth to children who duplicate their parents' sins of image reverence. This can go on for many generations without anyone being truly born again. ]
6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

[ Those who use "God" and "Jesus Christ" with blasphemous intent are doomed to hell.  God has no tolerance for this. ] 
8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

[ While the "Lord's Day" is now observed rather than the sixth day, the Sabbath, the principle of taking a day in every week to rest is unavoidable. Those who ignore this, die early. ] 
9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

[ The Seventh Day Adventists insist that those who rest and worship on Sunday are worshiping the Sun god and are taking the Mark of the Beast. Well, Saturday is the day of Saturn in Greek religion of the past.  The Mark of the Beast is a mark, not a day.  Finally, Jesus was first seen on the "first day of the week" and the early Church observe that as the day of the Church meeting. That the SDAs make such a fuss over this shows how utterly stupid they are.  The Church of true believers met on the First Day of the week from the earliest days. ] 
11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

[ Seventh day rest was not originally because of sin, nor was God tired.  Resting is a quality of God in His holiness. Rest for one day in seven with a view to worshipping God is an act of obedience first and foremost. ] 
12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

[ This law is not observed very well in this day. Elsewhere in Moses' law, if parents saw that their son was cheeky and a glutton, they could take him to the elders, and if they found the parents to be true, they stoned the kid. ] 
13 Thou shalt not kill.

[ This includes was for gain, abortion, purposing infecting Africa with AIDS through the United Nations small pox vaccination program, and helping  ANYONE to kill themselves. ]
14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.

[ This included the kings and the people-- all Jews were to be under this law.   Americans elected a man, Bill Clinton, whom they KNEW to be an adulterer. They WANT a filthy man to lead them. So, God will soon destroy America. You can count on it-- You voted for your own destruction. ]
15 Thou shalt not steal.

[ Stealing is endemic worldwide. God is not mocked.  This world will soon pay up. ]
16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

[ Gossip and story telling is part of this.  Many people tell all sorts of stories exposing their friends and neighbors.  The media lusts for a filthy word on our leaders. Yes, Bill Clinton is an adulterer, but what is top billing in the media?  Answer:  Is Bill Clinton's semen on Monica's dress? How utterly crass and degraded can a culture get? ]
17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's.

[ Coveting is the great sin of world culture today.  Advertising and marketing have made people all over the world to covet the things they see with their eyes.  Few if any cultures today are satisfied with what they have.  In the deepest Ituri Rain Forest of Congo, Pygmies lust to get a new radio, in the back streets of Gondor, Ethiopia, men scheme to get the gongs and trinkets of Western civilization. "Shopping" is so obsessive in America that it is sometimes impossible to walk from the front door to the back door in Wal-Mart in the USA.  Indeed, sociologists are amazed to find, in the end days of American culture, that department stores are becoming the social centers of our Western life. Museums and theatres are slowly dying. The theme of the West is, "Shop til you drop." Richardo Mantalban told us in the 70s, "You deserve a Cordoba." Well the Cordoba is now in the junk yard, so we lust for a Lincoln or a BMW. God is watching friends-- and He is about to trash ALL of our gongs and trinkets. Moses' law is still in fashion in the Glory! ]

Exodus chapter 21

1 Now these are the judgments which thou shalt set before them.
2 If thou buy an Hebrew servant, six years he shall serve: and in the seventh he shall go out free for nothing.

[ Slavery was permitted in Israel. But, our attitude toward slavery is colored by the barbarian slavery practiced in the Southern States of the USA before the Civil War. The world's most primitive slavery was that of the USA.  In Israel, the slaves had rights, and the following is an example of how God required restraint by masters. ] 
3 If he came in by himself, he shall go out by himself: if he were married, then his wife shall go out with him.
4 If his master have given him a wife, and she have born him sons or daughters; the wife and her children shall be her master's, and he shall go out by himself.
5 And if the servant shall plainly say, I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go out free:
6 Then his master shall bring him unto the judges; he shall also bring him to the door, or unto the door post; and his master shall bore his ear through with an aul; and he shall serve him for ever.

[ Bond service was a choice of the slave, and many chose it. This is because poverty had no sponsor as in the USA where the poor are made surfs of the Federal Government. In Israel, a man could choose to avoid poverty for the rest of his life by binding himself for life to another man. ]
......
12 He that smiteth a man, so that he die, shall be surely put to death.

[ The only just penalty for murder is the death penalty. The USA has a horrible crime problem at this time because criminals are allowed to live. Prisons did not exist in Israel.  A man either was found innocent and released, or he paid restitution, or he was stoned. Period, full stop. There was no country club where he could serve time and then go do the same crime again. As long as the USA courts disaster in this modern blasphemy of justice, this nation will go on down into the abyss of terror. ]
13 And if a man lie not in wait, but God deliver him into his hand; then I will appoint thee a place whither he shall flee.
14 But if a man come presumptuously upon his neighbour, to slay him with guile; thou shalt take him from mine altar, that he may die.

[ There was a provision for accidents, but still the man who killed another by accident was to move to a city AWAY from the victims area.  Killing a man was NOT a small thing to God. ]
15 And he that smiteth his father, or his mother, shall be surely put to death.

[ These brat kids who pull out a gun and try to kill their parents ARE responsible-- they should be stoned in the street in front of their house so that other kids know the penalty for playing the fool. ]
16 And he that stealeth a man, and selleth him, or if he be found in his hand, he shall surely be put to death.

[ Kidnapping for ANY reason is worthy of stoning. ]
17 And he that curseth his father, or his mother, shall surely be put to death.

[ What would this world be like if any kid who cussed out his parents was stoned? It would be be very peaceful. Jesse unruh, State School Superintendant of California in the 70s, got a law passed that if a school kid attacked a teacher or verbally accosted them even off the school ground, that the teacher could file suit in criminal court, and the kid would pay the penalty. The last I heard, no teacher would use the law. This shows how the minds of teachers have been ruined by guilt, as if it is cruel to hold a child responsible. A mouthy arrogant brat who attacks adults verbally should be stoned according to Moses' law. ]
18 And if men strive together, and one smite another with a stone, or with his fist, and he die not, but keepeth his bed:
19 If he rise again, and walk abroad upon his staff, then shall he that smote him be quit: only he shall pay for the loss of his time, and shall cause him to be thoroughly healed.

[ Wounding a man in a battle or fight is to be the responsibility of the man causing the injury, no matter "who started it." Our society has no such consideration. Indeed, the White race is so unrestrained that the vast majority of us carry liability insurance so that we can injure anyone we choose and let another agency pay the bill. This is cheap law according to Jehovah. ]
......
22 If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be surely punished, according as the woman's husband will lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine.

[ This is not abortion, which is murder in the first degree. This is an accident. The problem is that the one wounding was fighting and causing trouble, so he gets to pay for the life lost. ]
23 And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life,

[ This means that if the wife dies, stone the killer. ]
24 Eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot,
25 Burning for burning, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.

[ Does this sound brutal?  If so, this is because YOU are a wimp. YOU do not want to be held responsible for your actions. YOU want to booze it up and then drive around and kill people. YOU want to drive like a perfect jerk and take life and run people into the ditch and go free. YOU should be stoned. ]
......
28 If an ox gore a man or a woman, that they die: then the ox shall be surely stoned, and his flesh shall not be eaten; but the owner of the ox shall be quit.
29 But if the ox were wont to push with his horn in time past, and it hath been testified to his owner, and he hath not kept him in, but that he hath killed a man or a woman; the ox shall be stoned, and his owner also shall be put to death.

[ This means that there are such things as the unknown. But, if you have a pit bull, and if it bit once and you don't kill it, the next time it bites, you get the whip and pay the damage. ]
30 If there be laid on him a sum of money, then he shall give for the ransom of his life whatsoever is laid upon him.

[ No one went to jail or prison. Either they were executed or they paid restitution.  Can you imagine what life in the USA would be like if we practiced Moses' law? There would be VERY little crime. And, the soft headed wimps who love to hug criminals would also have to start restraining their brat kids and start driving like civilized people. There would be no "temporary insanity", and the most ignorant and retarded killer would be stoned along with Mr. Kavorkian. What a glorious world this would be, AND we would NOT have to provide these prisons at tremendous cost to the tax payer. There would be no need for rehabilitation centers and Juvenile Delinquent centers-- these devils would simply be stoned and removed from civilization.

Under the law of Moses, there would be a stoning at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue if Kenneth Starr proved that Bill Clinton was with Monica in adultery. Of course, Bill's earlier promotion of Sodomy would have caused his death a long time ago. Can you imagine what kind of Presidential candidates we would have if they all knew they had to live up to Moses' law? What if every gluttonous Baptist preacher were to be stoned?  Wouldn't some preachers be more careful at the church dinners? What if anyone who got AIDS had to live "in a several house" under quarantine for the rest of their life as in the law of lepers in Moses' day.  AIDS would be all gone by now. ]
......
33 And if a man shall open a pit, or if a man shall dig a pit, and not cover it, and an ox or an ass fall therein;
34 The owner of the pit shall make it good, and give money unto the owner of them; and the dead beast shall be his.

[  There were no such things as accidents in Israel. All things were held as someone's responsibility. If you made the problem, even unconsciously, YOU paid up. ]
......

Exodus chapter 22

1 If a man shall steal an ox, or a sheep, and kill it, or sell it; he shall restore five oxen for an ox, and four sheep for a sheep.
[ The state of Israel did not put the man in prison or fine him and put the cash in the state treasury. Rather, restitution was swift, to the victim, and 500% over the loss. This standard, if used in the USA, would probably wipe out 70 to 85% of all theft. ]
2 If a thief be found breaking up, and be smitten that he die, there shall no blood be shed for him.

[ This is the case in Turkey and Islamic countries to this day, and they have almost no theft. The thief is open season to be killed in the act. This, if practiced by the USA and alleged "civilized" nations, would wipe out theft 100%. ]
3 If the sun be risen upon him, there shall be blood shed for him; for he should make full restitution; if he have nothing, then he shall be sold for his theft.

[ Slavery for thieves is a God honoring solution. Is it inhumane? NO! It is a great solution. ]
......
6 If fire break out, and catch in thorns, so that the stacks of corn, or the standing corn, or the field, be consumed therewith; he that kindled the fire shall surely make restitution.

[ This law would solve arson and roadside fires lit by mindless cigarette suckers, of which about 99% are mindless and irresponsible.  They should pay to the last cent for all fires they start or be made slaves until they pay up. ]
7 If a man shall deliver unto his neighbour money or stuff to keep, and it be stolen out of the man's house; if the thief be found, let him pay double.
8 If the thief be not found, then the master of the house shall be brought unto the judges, to see whether he have put his hand unto his neighbour's goods.

[ No one is innocent because he was ignorant. All men are responsible for their choices and causes.]
9 For all manner of trespass, whether it be for ox, for ass, for sheep, for raiment, or for any manner of lost thing, which another challengeth to be his, the cause of both parties shall come before the judges; and whom the judges shall condemn, he shall pay double unto his neighbour.

[ Again, there is no jail or prison. The accused is either found innocent and goes free, or guilty and pays up, or he becomes a slave to the victim.  This is the kind of law that preserves society best. ]
10 If a man deliver unto his neighbour an ass, or an ox, or a sheep, or any beast, to keep; and it die, or be hurt, or driven away, no man seeing it:
11 Then shall an oath of the LORD be between them both, that he hath not put his hand unto his neighbour's goods; and the owner of it shall accept thereof, and he shall not make it good.
12 And if it be stolen from him, he shall make restitution unto the owner thereof.

[ Again, a man is responsible for his acts and causes. "Circumstances" are NOT a cause for innocence. ]
......
14 And if a man borrow ought of his neighbour, and it be hurt, or die, the owner thereof being not with it, he shall surely make it good.
15 But if the owner thereof be with it, he shall not make it good: if it be an hired thing, it came for his hire.

[ Millions of people borrow things and return them defective or damaged. This should be a criminal offense in a truly civilized nation. ]
16 And if a man entice a maid that is not betrothed, and lie with her, he shall surely endow her to be his wife.

[ This would take care of Bill Clinton's affairs. He would end up with 200 wives I dare say.  If Clinton laid with Monica, he should have to marry her. That would certainly put some caution into Hillary's tricks with the ladies.  Also, every buck stud, Black or White, who hustles ANY maid should HAVE to endow her as a wife, even if he does not live with her. Losing her virginity MUST be her free ticket to perpetual support by the hustler. Only this severe law will ever stop fornication in a nation. ]
17 If her father utterly refuse to give her unto him, he shall pay money according to the dowry of virgins.

[ Based on other laws, if he is flat broke of cash, he should be a slave to the father until he pays up. ]
18 Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.

[Cotton Mather was 100% right and righteous. Witches must be killed. ]
19 Whosoever lieth with a beast shall surely be put to death.

[ No questions or mercy-- No prison time-- kill the bums. ]
20 He that sacrificeth unto any god, save unto the LORD only, he shall be utterly destroyed.

[ Kill those who do sacrifice to any god or to Lucifer or to Satan. That would also include those who try to kill Jesus Christ and sacrifice Him anew to themselves in the Mass. ]
21 Thou shalt neither vex a stranger, nor oppress him: for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.

[ Those traveling through your land who are without nation or people are to be HELPED. ]
22 Ye shall not afflict any widow, or fatherless child.

[ Orphans and widows are to be sustained by the nation 100%. ]
......
25 If thou lend money to any of my people that is poor by thee, thou shalt not be to him as an usurer, neither shalt thou lay upon him usury.  

[ Anyone who came to poverty in employment or service to you can borrow from you WITHOUT paying interest. ]
26 If thou at all take thy neighbour's raiment to pledge, thou shalt deliver it unto him by that the sun goeth down:

[ You cannot keep a man 's down payment  or earnest money for more than one day. ]
......
28 Thou shalt not revile the gods, nor curse the ruler of thy people.

[ The small "g" in gods means the judges of Israel, not Jehovah GOD. This means that civil authority must be respected. ]
29 Thou shalt not delay to offer the first of thy ripe fruits, and of thy liquors: the firstborn of thy sons shalt thou give unto me.

[ The first born son could be redeemed if not needed in temple service.  The principle is that the best of all we have goes to God. Greedy USA and other nations suffer crashes and disasters in their economies and their empires collapse because they hold back and keep what is God's. ]
........

31 And ye shall be holy men unto me: neither shall ye eat any flesh that is torn of beasts in the field; ye shall cast it to the dogs.

[ This is a simple sanitation law to assure that diseased animals are not eaten. We observe this law in principle in civilized nations. ]

Exodus chapter 23

1 Thou shalt not raise a false report: put not thine hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness.
[ The whole world now honors this law in rejecting false reports, and those who make them are mocked in the media. ]
2 Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment:
[ All over the "civilized world" we find Moses' law observed as courts and civil rulers will condemn and even prosecute those who were accomplices in rebellion and insurrection. ]
3 Neither shalt thou countenance a poor man in his cause.
[ The world now hates a man who will reject and interfere with the justice due a poor person. Only the greedy, Hindus, and a handful of pagans will see the troubling of the poor as something good and helpful. The Hindus see the troubling of the poor as a way for the poor to be helped to work off Karma in this life. This is seen as profane and wicked in most civilized nations. Mother Teresa would not make her victims too comfortable because she thought she was helping them to work off sin. This is still found in a few twisted sickos in the Roman Catholic Church. ]
4 If thou meet thine enemy's ox or his ass going astray, thou shalt surely bring it back to him again.
[ Thousands of "lost and found" departments exist in many kinds of institutions. The civilized world recognizes that just because an item is lost does not mean it automatically becomes public property. Those who seek to return the lost item are seen as noble, and some very touching stories are exalted in our day in this pattern. This was NOT found in the world until Moses' law was given by God. ]
5 If thou see the ass of him that hateth thee lying under his burden, and wouldest forbear to help him, thou shalt surely help with him.
[ This means the enemy is due help just as the friend. Thus, after war, Christian nations rebuild the nation they defeated. Some will complain. But, the rebuilding of Japan and Germany by Great Britain and the USA was in the tradition of Moses' law. Other religions, such as the Roman Catholic tradition, would leave the defeated enemy to starve. This law was trashed when the North in the USA tried to keep the South starved after the Civil War, and we suffered much hate and terror in the South and the nation as race problems resulted. ]
6 Thou shalt not wrest the judgment of thy poor in his cause.
[ Again, we see that a man is not to receive justice based upon how much wealth he has. This law was not present in Europe during the Dark Ages of Roman Catholic terror and Inquisition. It took a Bible believing Reformation, and later the American Church, to force the world to receive this law. ]
7 Keep thee far from a false matter; and the innocent and righteous slay thou not: for I will not justify the wicked.
[ Spiritual people will not hang around when false things go down. Plotting to wrest wealth from any source by violence is still seen as wicked.  Bill and Hillary Clinton are on a perpetual defensive to try to escape from a scam in Arkansas in which innocent people were ripped off. ]
8 And thou shalt take no gift: for the gift blindeth the wise, and perverteth the words of the righteous.
[ Bribery is considered an insult to good rulers, and in many Christian nations a bribe will get a far worse punishment than the original offense. ]
9 Also thou shalt not oppress a stranger: for ye know the heart of a stranger, seeing ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.
[ The tolerance of Christian nations which received the Reformation and the ethic of the Anabaptists is tolerant to a fault with those who intrude into their lands. The USA is now allowing many Mexicans to slip through into the country with very little concern. Why? Answer: We all came here to escape some terror, so we find it hard to hate a man looking for a break. ]
10 And six years thou shalt sow thy land, and shalt gather in the fruits thereof:
11 But the seventh year thou shalt let it rest and lie still; that the poor of thy people may eat: and what they leave the beasts of the field shall eat. In like manner thou shalt deal with thy vineyard, and with thy oliveyard.

[ Farmers are actually PAID by their governments to let the land rest. It is seen as logical and essential to good production. Man did not know this until Moses' law was enforced. ]
12 Six days thou shalt do thy work, and on the seventh day thou shalt rest: that thine ox and thine ass may rest, and the son of thy handmaid, and the stranger, may be refreshed.
[ Tin pan salesmen in London long ago found that they could drive their donkeys farther in a six day week than if they went seven days straight.  Doctors will tell patients who refuse to rest one day a week to do so or die early. It is a law that works even for the Atheists who observe it. ]
13 And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect: and make no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it be heard out of thy mouth.
[ Ecumenism has broken down this law, but in any civilized Christian nation of the recent past, men who were not even churched would not show tolerance and sympathy for pagan gods. This is why Cotton Mather burnt witches, and this is why the folks in Illinois ran the Mormons out of town. ]
......
19 The first of the firstfruits of thy land thou shalt bring into the house of the LORD thy God.
[ To this day, many Christians around the world bring the first fruits to the Lord's House or to other saints. ]
......
32 Thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor with their gods.
33 They shall not dwell in thy land, lest they make thee sin against me: for if thou serve their gods, it will surely be a snare unto thee.

[ Regarding the heathen around the righteous, as in our day, the Bible believer is NOT to give of take "fellowship" or companionship.  This is now a broken law in our day as alleged Christians mix daily with false religion. The end of it is the approval of pagan gods, as in the case of Billy Graham saying that Buddhists will be received by God on their own terms. ]

This is only a fraction of the many laws of Moses as given by Jehovah God.  Even sanitation and sickness laws of our day are based on the laws God gave to Moses.  Men may mock God and laugh at Moses, but they keep Moses' laws or they suffer for their rebellion. If the world will not treat AIDS as Moses did in his day with leprosy, then AIDS will take out possibly half the world's population before it runs its course.

This is why we call the giving of the law a great turning point in history.  It is this law that justifies or condemns the works of man in all ages.
