10th Commandment: the Heart Commandment

10th Commandment: the Heart Commandment

Psalm 119:97 O how LOVE I THY LAW! it is my meditation all the day.

We know that the New Covenant of King Jesus is a HEART Covenant. It creates New Hearts and Soft Hearts.

But did you know that the Testimony of YAH, aka the 10 Commandments, also has a HEART based Commandment embedded within it?

The other 9 Commandments in YAH’s Will and Testimony are specifically targeted towards ACTION.

The 10th CUTS straight to the HEART!

Your heart can covet without you saying or doing anything.

Exodus 20:17 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.

Thou shalt not COVET, DESIRE, anything that is thy neighbors.

In other words: do not desire anything that I have given to someone else.

Your neighbors wife: do not DESIRE her in your HEART. Honor what I have given you.

Your neighbors house: do not DESIRE it in your heart. HONOR what I have given you.

Your neighbors talent, gifting, calling: do not DESIRE it in your HEART. Honor what I have given you.

Your neighbors property, business assets, employees: do not DESIRE them in your HEART. Honor what I have given you.

Your neighbors body, hair, skin: do not DESIRE it in your HEART. Honor what I have given you.

The New Covenant is a HEART Covenant… and YAH has ALWAYS desired truth in the inward parts.

The 10th Commandment is one of the tools I have used to clean up my heart!

This Commandment attacks the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life.

This one Commandment also cuts off so many other heart based iniquities such as envy, pride, self-hatred, strife, vanity, competition, self-promotion, hate, etc…

You can use this Commandment with the help of the Holy Spirit to VERBALLY confront and destroy your desires for things that are not yours on a daily basis.

This 10th Commandment is also a REFLECTION of Commandment number 5, which commands us to honor our father and mother so that we can live long and prosper on the property that God has given us.

In other words: if we honor what God has given us thru our parents (our genetics, gifts, talents, inheritance, etc) then we will prosper enough to have and honor our own, and we will not need to COVET or DESIRE the things that YAH has given to someone else.

The Father and the Son are ONE. The Son’s New Covenant is simply a Continuation of the Father’s Commandments: with a new and living Grace and Truth to fulfill it.

Psalms 19:7 The LAW of the LORD IS PERFECT, CONVERTING THE SOUL: the TESTIMONY OF THE LORD IS SURE, making WISE THE SIMPLE.
8 The statutes of the Lord are right, REJOICING THE HEART: the COMMANDMENT of the Lord is PURE, ENLIGHTENING THE EYES.
9 The FEAR OF THE LORD IS CLEAN, enduring for ever: the JUDGMENTS of the Lord are TRUE AND RIGHTEOUS ALTOGETHER.
10 More to be desired are they than GOLD, yea, than MUCH FINE GOLD: SWEETER also THAN HONEY and the honeycomb.
11 Moreover by them is thy SERVANT WARNED: and in keeping of them there is GREAT REWARD.
12 Who can understand his ERRORS? cleanse thou me from SECRET FAULTS.
