The Ten Commandments
“I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.
“You shall have no other gods before me.
“You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.
You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me,
but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.
“You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.
“Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.
Six days you shall labor and do all your work,
but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns.
For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.
“Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.
“You shall not murder.
“You shall not commit adultery.
“You shall not steal.
“You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.
“You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”
When the people saw the thunder and lightning and heard the trumpet and saw the mountain in smoke, they trembled with fear. They stayed at a distance and said to Moses, “Speak to us yourself and we will listen. But do not have God speak to us or we will die.”
Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. God has come to test you, so that the fear of God will be with you to keep you from sinning.” Exodus 20:1 – 20 (NIV)
Last week, we featured excerpts from a sermon from Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., in which he described “The Birth of a Nation,” the emergence of the nation of Ghana. Many younger people would not have remembered such a peaceful transition from a colony of the United Kingdom to an independent nation. Rev. King’s message compared the Exodus of the Hebrew
people from slavery in Egypt to the creation of the nation of Ghana. He referenced this transition and used it as an example of how American Blacks in the Deep South could transform their own miserable circumstances through peaceful means to a more free society in the 1960s.
Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. related the Exodus story of the Hebrews leaving slavery in Egypt behind and moving into freedom. In his message about “The Birth of a New Nation,” he was using the true life examples of the efforts of the true leaders and people of Ghana to transform from a nation controlled by the United Kingdom into an independent nation – without violence. He understood the example of Mohandas Gandhi and the utilization of “Satyagraha” in the transformation of India in a similar manner.`
In the Messages of Light today, I am offering a related message entitled, “The Re- Birth of One Nation Under God.” Right now in this moment, there are many Americans who would have no clue as to why our nation would need to go through a re-birth experience. On the other hand, it would be true that there are also those who have eyes to see and ears to hear that the nation is in serious disrepair – approaching destruction. Among those who have such discernment, there are many who would understand such a need for rebirth.
Yet, the journey of the Hebrew people, or of the people of India, or the people of Ghana from being under the dominion of another more powerful ‘kingdom’ into independence is quite a real testimony to the perseverance of people of faith. There are also similarities between those true journeys of faith with the history of the United States in the struggle for independence from the United Kingdom as well. It is that history that needs to be clearly understood, and not the more prevalent narrative that is ‘popular’ today. America’s history also needs to be clearly understood in light of the Hebrew journey into national independence.
In an article I posted from July 5, 2020, I asked: “‘…what was the primary impetus from the Founders to create a nation conceived in Liberty?’ I submit to readers that the impetus or inspiration was rooted in the dramatic escape from slavery from the ancient tyranny under the Pharoahs that existed in Ancient Egypt…’” It is a fairly basic connection between the historical struggle for freedom in ancient times up to the War for Independence more than 200 years ago.
However, was the escape from tyranny the essential point of each story?
I would submit that it was not, and it should not be too difficult to understand why. That is the point of my message in this edition preceding the general election of 2022. Truly, it is not simply the escape from slavery into freedom that was so important; it was the retention of that freedom through time that was the most crucial long-term purpose behind first obtaining freedom and then securing freedom.
Our scripture verse is from Exodus chapter 20, from God to Moses as He imparted the Ten Commandments to all those Hebrews gathered at the base of the mountain. It is an ironic time in which Heavenly Father reminds the people that He was the one who delivered them from the tyrant in Egypt and his army. Yet, some in that body of approximately 600,000 people could not accept what He was asking of them. It was truly ironic, yet truly tragic. The Hebrew people were willing to listen to the messenger of God, vacate their homes, leave their old lives behind, and follow Moses at the cost of their lives; yet, they could not agree to follow the commandments.
Is not America is a similar situation in our time? Americans today need to consider a couple of serious questions: How many Americans are willing to heed the directives or guidance of the Ten Commandments? How many Americans are willing to hold onto the self evident truths that are embedded in the Declaration of Independence? How many Americans are even thinking it may be necessary to pass on the precious freedoms we have enjoyed to those of the future generations?

May we humble ourselves, seek His face, repent, and turn from wickedness – like apathy or indifference, or lack of involvement to be good stewards over our Republic. May we be better stewards, better children, and renew our covenant, and return to the original design our Father in Heaven implemented to help re-build our nation and manifest His righteousness and His Kingdom.
“The Re- Birth of One Nation Under God”
By Dennis Jamison
Yet, the escape into freedom was not the total object of desire. Of course, it may have been for some who consider that freedom entails no responsibility, or “nothing left to lose,” according to the old Janis Joplin lyrics. If this were the case, God would not have asked Moses to reveal the “Ten Commandments” to the people. For a people who had only know slavery from birth to death, they would need a way of sustaining their liberty, or they would lose it more easily than they worked to obtain their freedom. The initial Ten Commandments, which many Jewish people recognize as ‘guidelines’ and not the ‘commands’ that Christians perceive, were the foundation for a new form of ethical and moral governance.
Tyranny was not the model God foresaw as the way for HIs children. However, it has been justified time and again throughout history as “God’s way.” The Pharaoh meant a current king in the lineage of the nation’s kings – the prolongation of the dominion of the select family or class of people. The concept of empire was a furtherance or expansion of a kingdom, in which many kingdoms could be ruled under the dominion of a single empire: the Parthian Empire, the Roman Empire, the Ottoman Empire, the dynasties of ancient China and other Asian nations, the Holy Roman Empire, the British Empire (aka the United Kingdom) etc. The concept of the “Divine Right of Kings” grew from such historical precedent.
Yet, at one point, brilliant and brave men and women made up their minds and decided to not only declare independence from tyranny, but to fight for freedom at the cost of their lives. Tyranny was viewed as a failed system of government by America’s founding generation, and they not only perceived it as such, but they sought to end the dominion of the dominant tyrant of the age: the United Kingdom, which turned out to be not so united. Thus, it was not only a rejection of the value of monarchy, but of tyranny in the broader sense. It was not only an intellectual rejection complete with a very provocative proclamation, but it was the action of defiance and passive resistance initially, and then it became the action of very active resistance, and ultimately the serious act of rebellion against such dominion.
The separate American colonies were transformed into a United States of America via serious thought and planning as well as the actions necessary to secure the blessings of liberty. With the Hebrew transition into freedom in the Exodus narratives, the initial phase of securing freedom included a trust in a single individual who was seen as the one representing God. In the American experience, the trust was placed in Jesus, but as the words of the conclusion of the Declaration of Independence state, “with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence…” and specifically, “appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions…” The Founders placed their trust in God. The question today is: Do we?
The anchor or cornerstone of the United States was the self-evident truths that the founding generation believed in, embedded within the proclamation of the Declaration. However, a long time ago, a wise one of faith stated that: “The cost of Liberty is eternal vigilance.” Today, do Americans still hold to the self-evident truths? Some do; some do not. There is a precedence.
I would submit that Americans are no longer standing upon the virtual banks of the Red Sea, but as a populace we are symbolically standing at the base of the mountain as Moses brought down the self-evident truths as revealed by God on the mountaintop to deliver to the Hebrews at the base of the mountain. To many of the assembled impatient people, the Ten Commandments had no value – they were irrelevant. Those people had the Golden Calf, which not only showed a rejection of God through the representation of an idol, it represented the worship of material and a rejection of moral values. It also represented the rejection of Moses as spokesman of God and the rejection of the truth that God was sharing with the people at the time.
I would submit that Americans Today are standing at the base of the mountain and some see how sacred the self-evident truths are, and some see a simple piece of old dreamed parchment.
And some amongst us, would like to burn that parchment – to shred the truth would like us to use to govern our nation. Some are looking to government in the way the Hebrews had normally viewed their enslavement – at least there was a roof over their heads and food to eat – caught in the material comfort zones of safety and predictable routine. Many wanted to return to Egypt even after escaping from dominion. Some sought freedom over material self preservation. They were a divided people.
Today, in America, we are a divided people. We are in danger of repeating a tragedy in history – perhaps more than one. The vision and heritage of the Judeo-Christian foundation that we have obtained in this nation is seriously being threatened from within and from outside the borders. The self-evident truths that the founding generation were willing to fight for and even to die for, are the core of this battle raging across America in such a time as this. Americans need to get beyond the Red Sea moment to get to one of the main purposes of our freedom.
I submit that the nation needs a re-birth of Freedom in order to retain and secure that this nation could become once again “One Nation Under God.” Tuesday is Election Day, although in such time, it is more like election season because the more time it takes the more irregularities and manipulation involved in counting which can be made to appear as normal. Our rebirth is truly linked to the understanding of “We the People” understanding that we need to realize that we are the ones who are the government, we are the sovereigns and we can re-establish our link to Heavenly Father, our covenant for our Republic and all that it would entail. It is not a time to not exercise our right to vote, to trust propaganda, or to give in to evil. We need to refresh our minds and hold to the self-evident truths that began this great experiment and to exercise the rights we still have by standing for what we value. It is a time of turning – like a U-turn, and a reversal of direction. We need a rebirth of freedom and the commitment to pass it on to the future generations!
