The First Commandment of God
For 430 years, the Israelites were enslaved in Egypt. The Israelites were wailing and always prayed for God to save them. God heard the voice of His people and sent a prophet named Moses. God let the people keep the Passover as the way to save them, and the people who kept it could be saved from the disaster and came out of the Egypt. It liberates them from Egypt. Thus, the Passover was like a day of Independence Day to them. God commanded them to celebrate the Passover as a regulation to commemorate God’s authority and power.
Exodus 13:3~4 Then Moses said to the people, “Commemorate this day, the day you came out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery, because the Load brought you out of it with a mighty hand. Eat nothing containing yeast. 20:1~3 And God spoke all these words; “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.
Thus the first one of ten commandments is ‘Don’t serve other gods.’ It includes meaning “Not to serve other gods and worship only God” Thus we can accomplish the first commandment as keeping the Passover.
God’s the first commandment is the Passover
Exodus 12:12 “On that same night I will pass through Egypt and strike down every firstborn-both men ans animals- and I will bring judgment on all the gods of Egypt. I am the LORD.
God promised to judge all other gods except God on the Passover. When God judges all other gods, who alone remains? Only God remains. By celebrating the Passover, we can serve no other gods. In other words, to keep the Passover is to observe the first commandment. No matter how hard we try, we don’t have the capability to distinguish between God and other gods. If we don’t celebrate the Passover, we won’t know the way to serve God.
That is the only WMSCOG keeping the Passover of the New Covenant and accomplish the ten commandments. As realizing the truth, we can receive the salvation through God’s promise. Please come to Zion and listen to God’s words.
