The First Commandment

   The First Commandment that our Glorious God gave us reads, "I am the Lord your god, you shall not have false gods before Me."  The Almighty God is the Beginning and the End, the Alpha and the Omega. He is and always shall be.  He has created us out of love and in return, He expects and deserves all of our love.  In this Commandment we must love God with our whole heart and above all things, but in sadness many allow the flesh to lead them more than they allow the spiritual to lead them.  The devil is causing many to glorify the body more than glorifying our One True God.  God expects us to live in modesty, purity, and with self-control.  God expects us to be guided by the Holy Spirit, not by the flesh; but in sadness many have allowed the flesh to overwhelm them, to lead them, to imprison them; and by doing so they have already separated themselves from the Will of our Glorious God.  Many say that they believe in God, but then live a life in contradiction to what they have spoken.  If we live by the flesh then our flesh becomes our god, for we must come to understand that the flesh is a strong force that overwhelms many men and women of the world, crippling them in their spiritual journey.  Many allow the flesh to possess them, and then with their actions they are without fear when they displease God.  Many desecrate the flesh with marks upon their skin that are offensive to God.  Many in todays world violate the First Commandment indulging in sins of the flesh.  One who sows to the flesh shall receive its punishment, but when one sows to the Spirit, the First Commandment shall become clear and will be able to be lived sincerely, and they shall receive God's blessings.
