Message from God: book 1/93
There are no such things as the Ten Commandments.
Who would I command? Myself? And why would such commandments be required? Whatever I want, is. How is it therefore necessary to command anyone?
And, if I did issue commandments, would they not be automatically kept? How could I wish something to be so badly that I would command it, and then sit by and watch it not be so?
What kind of a king would do that? What kind of a ruler?
And I tell you this: I am neither a king nor a ruler. I am simply, and awesomely, the Creator. Yet the Creator does not rule, but merely creates, creates, and keeps on creating.
I have created you, blessed you, in the image and likeness of Me. And I have made certain promises and commitments to you. I have told you, in plain language, how it will be with you when you become as one with Me.
You are, as Moses was, an earnest seeker. Moses too, as do you now, stood before Me, begging for answers. “Oh, God of My Fathers,” he called. “God of my God, deign to show me. Give me a sign, that I may tell my people! How can we know that we are chosen?”
And I came to Moses, even as I have come to you now, with a divine covenant, an everlasting promise, a sure and certain commitment. “How can I be sure?” Moses asked plaintively. “Because I have told you so,” I said. “You have the Word of God.”
And the Word of God was not a commandment, but a covenant.
