Ten Commandments decalogue
The Ten Commandments Decalogue
The most ancient constitution is the Constitution of the Kingdom of Heaven - the Ten Commandments - which God wrote in the hearts of all mankind when He created the first man Adam over 6000 years ago, and which He reiterated as the Constitution of the Corporeal nation of Israel of old over 3,000 years ago; but America's Constitution is only 210 years of age. It is true, however, that the United States Constitution is the oldest surviving heathen constitution.
The United States Constitution is kept in the National Archives building in Washington D.C. This is a huge structure built in endeavor to preserve the original document. The structure has concrete vaults and steel cases made in endeavor to protect the document from the destructive effects of sunlight. The vaults are air-conditioned and the humidity is controlled to prevent deterioration. But the Ten Commandments have and need no such protection from the elements, and yet they are able to survive apart from any effort of man.
America's Constitution is displayed with the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights in the Exhibition Hall of the Archives sealed in a gas-filled enclosure. After it is displayed it is mechanically lowered into a vault made from steel and reinforced concrete that is 20 feet below the floor. The purpose of this is to endeavor to protect it from fires, explosions, earthquakes and bombings.
But no elaborate protective environment has been designed to protect the Ten Commandments. Yet they survive as strong as ever even after having been through generations of bombings, earthquakes, explosions and fires.
Even though no one knows the whereabouts of the original tablet of stone upon which God wrote the Decalogue Ten Commandments for the Hebrews with His finger, yet not one of the Ten Commandments has been lost, changed or amended. But that would not be the case for the American Constitution if the original were lost. And even while the whereabouts of the original is known, it has already been amended.
The Ten Commandments or Decalogue survive as strong as ever even though a world of generations of heathens have sought and are vigorously seeking to nullify or destroy them. The very fact that the heathens exalt the factitious American Constitution and the UN Charter above the Ten Commandments is evidence of their efforts to destroy them; but they are only futilely exalting that which cannot stand the test of time.
Despite the efforts of heathens to make the American Constitution stand supreme and eternal, the "Manifest Destiny" of their Constitution is complete destruction, even if no one lays a hand on it. But the Ten Commandments will still be in existence, shining in their full splendor and glory, throughout eternity future. Surely it is clear that God is the One protecting the Ten Commandments.
Decalogue Exodus 20ASV Exodus 20 1 And God spake all these words, saying,
2 I am Jehovah thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee a graven image, nor 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.
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them, for I Jehovah thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, upon the third and upon the fourth generation of them that hate me,
6 and showing lovingkindness unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.
7 Thou shalt not take the name of Jehovah thy God in vain; for Jehovah will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
9 Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work;
10 but the seventh day is a sabbath unto Jehovah thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy man-servant, nor thy maid-servant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
11 for in six days Jehovah made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore Jehovah blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
12 Honor thy father and thy mother, that thy days may be long in the land which Jehovah thy God giveth thee.
13 Thou shalt not kill.
14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.
15 Thou shalt not steal.
16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.
17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbors wife, nor his man-servant, nor his maid-servant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor anything that is thy neighbors.
18 And all the people perceived the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the voice of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they trembled, and stood afar off.
19 And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us, and we will hear; but let not God speak with us, lest we die.
20 And Moses said unto the people, Fear not: for God is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before you, that ye sin not.
21 And the people stood afar off, and Moses drew near unto the thick darkness where God was.
22 And Jehovah said unto Moses, Thus thou shalt say unto the children of Israel, Ye yourselves have seen that I have talked with you from heaven.
23 Ye shall not make other gods with me; gods of silver, or gods of gold, ye shall not make unto you.
24 An altar of earth thou shalt make unto me, and shalt sacrifice thereon thy burnt-offerings, and thy peace-offerings, thy sheep, and thine oxen: in every place where I record my name I will come unto thee and I will bless thee.
25 And if thou make me an altar of stone, thou shalt not build it of hewn stones; for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast polluted it.
26 Neither shalt thou go up by steps unto mine altar, that thy nakedness be not uncovered thereon.
