7. YOU SHALL NOT MURDER YOUR
In the Bible of the "so-called" Christians, this law is written simply as "Thou Shalt Not Kill" which leaves room for misun derstanding of interpretation. What this law means is you shall not WISH death upon another human being of God in YOUR THOUGHTS as well as you shall not commit physical murder of another human.
This rule does not mean you cannot defend yourself and your family if your lives are threatened, because that is SUICIDE which is SELF-MURDER and so also against God's laws. You must not ever choose suicide of your body because you feel worthless and "can't" go on, because you dishonor the life-force of God within you. Only God within you must decide the end of a physical life-stream. That time will only come when your purpose and mission is accomplished so that the process and Di vine Plan of God for your spiritual growth will not be inter rupted. The remorse of the soul is oftentimes much greater AFTER the suicide of the body is accomplished than in the per ceived "altered" ego illusion of suffering BEFORE the life-stream is terminated.
Just remember that when you honor God within yourself and ALL THAT IS and you truly understand the laws of balance given by our Divine HOLY ONE, you would never consider the self-punishment of suicide. You will simply CHERISH every living breath you take in the Gift of LIFE of God and The Creation!
Oh yes, and for those of you who label yourselves "Feminists" and "Pro-Choice" which usually means PRO-MURDER of one of GOD's children, remember this: THERE ARE NO ACCI DENTAL PREGNANCIES. If you become pregnant, which is being the vehicle for one of God's new creations, CHOOSING an abortion because of YOUR selfish and irresponsible sexual behavior IS STILL MURDER any way you look at it. Remem ber you each are given, along with your "Free Will", PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY for all of your thoughts, words, deeds and actions. There are definitely many possibly undesir able "effects" to illicit and wanton, lustful sexual activity. Pregnancy and Disease are two obvious results which do and have occurred more often than not.
Now, IF a woman is forcefully and violently RAPED against her will and becomes pregnant, then SHEmust commune with God within her as to whether or not HE will terminate the pregnancy. So it will not be HER "altered" ego choice or will but THE FATHER'S WILL WITHIN HER WILL BE DONE. This is usually what a miscarriage is, THE FATHER'S WILL. No ONE else will make this decision for HER, ONLY THE FATHER WITHIN HER!
8. YOU MUST NOT COMMIT ADULTERY
The literal definition of "adultery" in your dictionary is: "The voluntary sexual intercourse of a married person with someone not the spouse." Now, the reason for this law, which still ap plies now, was that well before and at the time that the Commandments were presented by Moses to the people, they were mostly simple-minded, ignorant, illiterate and God-FEAR ING because of their previous false teachings given by the reli gious/empire leaders of their "time".
The problem was that (throughout your "past" history) many young men and soldiers would lustfully spread their fertile seed in the sexual act to MANY various young, willing women whom they met within their daily lives and in their travels from village to village. (Times have not changed much, have they?) The ob vious result was that many women became pregnant, and usually by that time the man was long gone, to war or to the next vil lage. So she would be left alone with the responsibility of birthing and raising her child. Many women could not "handle" this unexpected responsibility AND the desertion of who they usually thought to be THEIR man. Many women, overcome by the horror, shame and guilt of the circumstance, killed them selves and their unborn by trying to abort the child. Many women were left on the streets, unless they had friends or fam ily who would take care of them. And many women abandoned their birthed child, sometimes at the doorstep of a church or or phanage, but also some would leave the child to die in some dark and desolate place. So thus the necessity of this law, "You must NOT commit adultery." (See law #15, "You must obey the wisdom of God for the responsibility you have of BAL ANCED Pro-Creation of your species".)
So in his loving mercy and infinite wisdom, God created the commitment of Marriage or Wedlock defined in your dictio nary as: "A legal contract by a man and woman to live together as husband and wife." (In the higher realms it is a very serious and joyful commitment and is called DIVINE UNION.) In this way HE planted the seed of JOINT responsibility of this hus band and wife to each other AND to any offspring they pro duced. This is why Marriage is to be considered one of the MOST serious and SACRED commitments TO GOD!
Now we will quote some of the actual teachings given on this subject of THE FATHER'S WORD given by The Master Teacher Jesus, Esu, Immanuel from the book (now in print, as part of The Phoenix Journal Series) entitled AND THEY CALLED HIS NAME IMMANUEL: I AM SANANDA. Nearly 2000 years ago when the Master Jesus, Esu, Immanuel was asked about the commitment of marriage and the rights of men and women. This is what he said:
"All good things were given unto you and you received the Laws according to which you are to live. You should adhere to these and additional laws, so that you shall prosper on Earth and have peace in your families; remove the power of the old law that women shall be subject to man, since she is a person equal to man in spirit respect, and has equal rights and obligations. There are many distortions in the laws since they were given forth by God and the Celestial Sons, for men have built them to be suitable unto themselves.
"When a man marries a woman, he shall pay to the most trusted steward the handling of her possessions, as a price of security, lest she suffer from lack of her necessities. The price should be calculated in such a way that for each year of her life one hundred pieces of silver should be the basis, measured according to her knowledge, her ability, and her strength, provided her health is not lacking. The price is not to be considered as that of a "purchase", for no person may be sold or bought, but as security for the woman lest she suffer lack. (Amount and type of financial security for "modern" times will be adjusted accordingly. For further clari fication of Immanuel's statements read PHOENIX JOURNAL EXPRESS VOLUME 1 & 2 pages 34-40.)
"The bond of matrimony between man and woman should be permitted only if both are of mental competence and ca pable of leading a marriage in accordance with the law. (Note: that is GOD'S LAW).
"If, according to predetermined agreement, no price is paid, the law applies: the man must supply the needs of the wife regarding all of her necessities.
"The inability of a wife to bear children, or a man's inability to sire children is no reason for divorce, nor does she or he deserve other opinions or actions.
"The only reason for divorce is that of adultery, that is the destruction or endangering of spirit, the body, or the life of the members of one's own family unit. If a person is di vorced by his own actions of adultery, he should be steril ized, for he is unworthy of life and its laws for he has responded to the selfish lustful drives of pleasure-seeking and has cast aside all responsible behavior." (End of quoting.)
Now, in the literal translation in order for ADULTERY to oc cur, then one or the other or both of the two adulterers would have to have made the vow of marriage. In God's Kingdom of Truth, this vow of DIVINE UNION made between two, a man and a woman to live together as ONE, is taken most seriously indeed because it is a commitment made to THE FATHER WITHIN, EACH TO THE OTHER for that entire life-stream. It is a contract with GOD rather than a legal contract of the hu man experience. This means that a man and woman who co habit together as "lovers" without a "so-called" legal contractmust make THE SAME COMMITMENT to God as those who have the "so-called" legal contract, whether THEY realize it or not. It is NOT necessarily always a contract made to God to PRO-CREATE the species because many who choose DIVINE UNION may not choose, be able, or be qualified to fulfill that (pro-creation) service to THE ONE FATHER. (RE-READ Commandment number 6 where we discussed the responsibility of PRO-CREATION). But both "lovers" STILL HAVE THE SAME RESPONSIBILITY (as a "legally" married couple) for the offspring they may produce. If they only choose cohabitation because of sexual lust or other selfish reasons, they have, thus, denied THEIR responsibility to GOD, and they will suffer the consequences of their actions at the hands of evil. (See law #13, "As you sow, so shall you reap" also known as, "The Law of Cause and Effect".)
Does this mean that DIVORCE, defined as: "1. Dissolution of a marriage bond by legal process OR accepted custom. 2. Any radical or complete separation", goes against the laws of God and The Creation? YES AND NO! You see it depends on the TRUE circumstances experienced by the divorcing couple. For example: Since your commitment in life is always FIRST IN SERVICE TO GOD, then ideally, your chosen partner in mar riage must support YOUR commitment as well as his/her com mitment to THE HOLY FATHER.
If, for example, your partner batters you and/or your children physically or emotionally and thus does not support or honor either his or YOUR commitment in service to GOD, then you are no longer bound by your contract/bond of marriage. Why would GOD bind you and your children to a commitment of SUFFERING and PUNISHMENT? It is not logical. But, if your partner decides that he/she wants to divorce you because you are just no longer attractive to him/her physically and sexu ally, THIS IS NOT AN ACCEPTABLE REASON FOR DI VORCE. Let's take that example further. Say your partner is no longer attracted to you and decides to find sexual satisfaction elsewhere; he/she has committed ADULTERY, (re-read above quote by Jesus Immanuel) and if you choose to do so, it IS an acceptable reason for divorce. The reason is that not only has your partner broken his/her commitment with YOU and HIM SELF, BUT in the act of Adultery he has broken his commit ment TO SERVE GOD...because by the act of fulfilling his lust he has invited the Anti-Christ within his temple. Of course, the choice you make about whether or not to divorce an adulterous mate will ultimately be made BY THE FATHER WITHIN YOU.
