Seventh Commandment of the Bible


Greetings to all. Welcome to educational podcast, the podcast where I dive into the true contexts of the Bible to explore its real teachings and significance. I’m Elder Dan, your host. In this episode, I am going to tackle one of the most critical and often misunderstood commandments in the Bible – the Seventh Commandment, which says “You shall not commit adultery.” Join me as I examine what this commandment means, why it’s essential, and how it applies to our lives today.

The Seventh Commandment of the Bible is part of the universal and eternal Ten Commandments, which are a set of moral laws given by Almighty Yahweh to Moses on Mount Sinai. In Exodus 20:14, Yahweh says, “You shall not commit adultery.” This commandment is repeated in Deuteronomy 5:18 with slight variations. At first glance, it may seem like a simple rule about not having sex outside of marriage. But as we dig deeper, we’ll discover that it’s so much more than that.

Adultery is not just about physical intimacy; it’s about betrayal, deception, and destruction of relationships. When we cheat on our spouses or engage in any form of extramarital affairs, we’re not only harming ourselves but also those closest to us – our partners, children, family members, and friends. We’re also violating Yahweh’s design for human relationships and His plan for our lives.

The Bible teaches that marriage is a sacred institution created by Yahweh (Matthew 19:4-6). It’s a covenant between two people who promise to love and cherish each other for better or for worse, through thick and thin. When you commit adultery, you’re essentially breaking that covenant and breaking trust with your wife or husband. It’s a serious offense that can lead to devastating consequences, including damaged relationships, broken hearts, and yes, even spiritual harm!

But what about lust? Is lust the same as love? Many people might think that lust is just a natural part of human desire, and that it’s okay to indulge in it as long as it doesn’t lead to actual adultery. But Yahshua would disagree. In Matthew 5:28, He says, “But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in their heart.” That’s right – even looking at someone with lustful intent is considered adultery according to Yahshua! And yes, this applies to both the woman and man.

So, what does this mean for us? It means that our desires and temptations must be kept in check. Lust is not love; it’s a counterfeit imitation of love that can never satisfy our deepest longings. Real love requires mutual respect, trust, and commitment – things that are absent from lustful encounters.

And what about those who have already experienced adultery or have been affected by it? What about those who struggle with same-sex attraction or other forms of temptation? The good news is that Yahweh is an Elohim of mercy and grace. He offers forgiveness and restoration to those who truly repent and seek Him. In Psalm 32:1-5, the Bible’s King David writes about his own experience with adultery and the resulting shame and guilt. Yet, he praises the Father in heaven Yahweh for His mercy and redemption.

Therefore, when we indulge in lustful thoughts or behaviors, we’re not only hurting others but also ourselves. Yes, we’re damaging our relationships and our own sense of self-worth. The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 6:18-20 that our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, and we must honor them accordingly.

So, what can we do to apply this commandment in our lives? First, let us acknowledge that we’re all tempted and fallible human beings. Second, let us prioritize communication, honesty, and trust in our relationships. Third, let us remember that true intimacy and connection come from a deep emotional bond built on mutual respect, trust, and commitment.

Overall, the Seventh Commandment “You shall not commit adultery” is more than just a rule; it’s a reminder of Elohim’s design for human relationships and His desire for us to live in harmony with Him. By understanding its significance and importance, we can build stronger marriages, deeper connections with others, and a more intimate relationship with Yahweh.

Before I go, let me pray this prayer for you: May Yahweh bless you and keep you; may Yahweh make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; may Yahweh lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace. I humbly pray these things to Yahweh through Yahshua, the true name of the Messiah, our Master, and coming King, amen. May you have the eyes to see and the ears to hear for this heavenly message. Pray for peace in Yerushalayim. Halleluyah!
