The 10 Commandments
Use Your Imagination To Learn The 10 Commandments!
NOTE: Short version of each Commandment is in BOLD WRITING
1 I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
(God Must Be #1 In Everything In Your Life) Picture in your mind... a big "1st Place" ribbon which a first place winner would ware. God must be # 1 all the time in your life.
2 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
(Do Not Bow Down To or Worship Idols) Picture in your mind... a person "bowing down to worship" and this person's body is in the shape of the # 2. Can you see it!
3 Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
(Do Not Use God's Name As A Cuss Word) Picture in your mind... the # 3 is forming "big lips" which are using the "Name of the Lord" to cuss with or as a cuss word.
4 Remember the sabbath day (the 7th day i.e. Saturday), to keep it holy.
Six days shalt thou labour, 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, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, 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 in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
(Remember The Sabbath To Keep It Holy, Do No Work In It) Picture in your mind... the angle of the # 4 is forming the left side of the roof of the front of a "church". Fill in the rest of the front of the "church" in your mind.
5 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
(Honor your father and mother) Picture in your mind... that a father and a mother is in the # 5, forming the number with their bodies. (Just like what you did with the 2nd commandment.)
6 Thou shalt not kill.
(Do Not Murder) Picture in your mind... rotate the # 6 to the right and it turns into a gun, someone uses this gun to "murder".
7 Thou shalt not commit adultery.
(Do not commit adultery) Picture in your mind... rotate the # 7 to the right and it turns into a bed where "adultery" in committed. The world calls it 'sleeping with' someone. The truth - It is "adultery".
8 Thou shalt not steal.
(Do not steal) Picture in your mind... the # 8 is a mask a thief would wear to hide his/hers identity while taking something that doesn't belong to him/her.
9 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.
(Do Not Lie) Picture in your mind... the # 9 is a stick man, then rotate the stick man the right and it is a stick man "lying" down.
10 Thou shalt not covet (lust after) thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's.
(Do Not Lust After Things) Picture in your mind... the 0 in the # 10 turns into a very expensive ring which a person "covets" or lust after, to have for themselves.
