A Day Forgotten

A Day Forgotten

A friend once said to me one day
“Keep the Ten Commandments, say?
I heard that they were thrown away
On the crucifixion day”.

“You mean to say I can steal and kill?”
I said to him, feeling ill.
“Oh no,” he said, “you must obey
To steal and kill is wrong, you’ll pay!”

“Okay,” I said,” two laws (of ten) are sure
They are solid and they are pure.
“Well then to take my neighbors man
Must be alright if I can.”

“Oh no,” he said, “you must obey
Adultery is wrong and you will pay.”
I scratched my head, a mental note
Three commands okay I wrote.

To make a longer story short
I gave to God’s laws "each" support.
And to each one he said, “Oh No”
I scratched my head, another blow.

But when I came to the one that said
“Remember” it was forgotten instead.
“Now that one was changed, you know
“I don’t remember why although.”

Can’t figure why one out of ten
Was forgotten to keep of men.
They keep it in their own way
Even changing God’s Holy Day.

Only one commandment said,
“REMEMBER” is the way it read.
And most the world forgot this law
The one that said Remember of all.

God must have known a counterfeit
Would make the world a sad forfeit
The Day God Sanctified with His love
Blessed and made holy from above.

"And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made. Gen. 2:3 Written in God’s own hand in stone… the Ten Commandments. (Not written by man) Gives the idea it was a solid law that was never to be changed. The one changed the most (by man, not God) is the forth Commandment (the third for our Catholic brother's and sisters) “REMEMBER” THE Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, not thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maid servent, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates, for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is them is, and rested the seventh day, wherefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.” Gen. 20: 8-11 (Not one in seven, but the Seventh Day.)

But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.       2 Corinthians 3:18

I was born into a non Adventist home, well that is an understatement really. My father was and still is a heavily practicing Satanist and as such, myself being a female, made me a target for ridicule and I was most certainly placed way below my brothers in the family......Tamara's Testimony
