This is the same question asked by the Disciples.
The Ten Commandments present problems to people who believe in easy salvation. People don't want to believe that they will drink Yah's wrath (Rev 14:9-10) and be tormented with fire and brimstone, and have no rest, day or night, who worship the Beast and his image, and whosoever receives the Mark (Rev 14:10-11).
I've added this Chapter because people expect me to have advice on how to cancel their Social Security Number. People accuse me of damning them, with no hope of salvation. I've been accused of being paranoid, fearful, negative, indignant, and not having the joy of Yahusha.
People say that having a Social Security number cannot damn them because they are Bible Believer; they are saved by grace; Yahusha's blood paid the penalty for their sin. I cannot respond to these statements because I am not your sovereign. I can only tell you what Scripture says. All us sinners will NOT be saved. It seems to be very arrogant for any sinner to insist that "God will save me just because I call myself a Christian."
Yahusha is our only hope for salvation; no one can save himself or herself. All I do is quote from the Bible and reference some verifiable facts. Your assignment is to decide whether or not to live in the fear of Yah's wrath. You get to decide whether or not to obey the Ten Commandments. I'm just a shouting watchman warning people to the dangers of false authority. Have I become your enemy because I tell the truth?
You must decide between Beast worship and buying/selling. says if your right hand offends you, cut it off. I'm sure that He was using a metaphor to say that this is not going to be easy.
Some people believe in easy salvation based upon Romans 10:9: "... confess that Yahusha is our Master and was raised from the dead and you WILL BE saved."
I happen to believe that there is no assurance of easy salvation. This topic seems to irritate some people. They say that my message ignores that Messiah died to save us. The following comments are intended to instill the fear of Yahuah.
Matthew 19:25,27 (KJV): "When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?" ... "Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore?"
Do you sense how astonished Peter was at this news?
Aside: I've been told that this story proves the awesome forgiveness of Yah's grace is so great that He would save someone who worships money. I don't see this as a love-of-money story, I see this for what it says it is. Those who do the will of Yah (obey the Commandments) must still leave everything and follow Yahusha to be saved.
Participating in Socialist benefits is violation of the Ten Commandments - theft and covetousness. Even if you don't include worship, oaths, and falsifying federal documents. And yes, those who refuse a Socialist security number can be victorious over the Beast, just as if it were the Mark of Rev 15:2. Nor will they be funding vile abominations with their taxes.
1st Corinthians 7:21 (NIV) "Were you a slave when you were called? Don't let it trouble you -- although if you can gain your freedom, do so."
If??? Don't let it trouble you??? How does a permanent slave regain his freedom if he cannot purchase it? Answer: He can't. He must suffer the consequences. Just like an enlisted serviceman cannot change his own status. Repenting doesn't change your status. Wanting to get back into Yahuah's chain of command will not change your status. What then can you do, and what are the consequences?
Since you cannot change your slave status, there are still a few things you can do when you decide you want citizenship under Yah's chain of command. But you will be an AWOL runaway slave. You must forevermore be a fugitive, and rely upon the grace of your sovereign to protect you. The same sovereign who said you must endure persecution. One simus voluntarily returned to his owner, but then again, he could still serve the one Master, because his owner was an authority ordained of Yahuah. But he still had to suffer punishment from his owner.
I can give you some crumbs of comfort, and reasons for the faith that lies within. But if you want legal advice, consult your lawgiver.
