Somebody I met on line revealed this understanding to me. All esteem goes to YaHVeH, HE is the one that truly reveals through HIS Kodesh Ruach.
My understanding of how to count the order of the 10 commandments has changed. I was always taught to divide them into four and six. That doesn’t make any sense now that I have had time to meditate on YaHVeH’s Law/Torah. The ETERNAL designed HIS 10 commandments so that we could count them on our hands. The right hand for YaHVeH the left hand for man. The first five signify obedience, worship and shows love for YaHVeH. Notice what hand Yahshua the Mashiyach holds the seven stars:
Revelation/Raz Galah/Secrets Revealed: 1:16: And He had in His right hand seven stars: and out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword: and His countenance was as the sun shining in his strength.
Re: 1:20: The mystery of the seven stars, which you saw in My right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks/menorah. The seven stars are the malakiym of the seven ekklesia/moediym/called out: and the seven candlesticks/menorah, which you saw, are the seven ekklesias.
This is something we believers need to consider about the language of the Iybriyiym/Hebrews. This was the language that the commandments were given in. The Iybriy language was written from right to left: This I believe signifies to us the commandments we should remember first, the first five we can count on our right hand, to love YaHVeH first:
Matith'Yah/Matthew: 22:37: Yahshua said to him, You shall love YaHVeH your Elohiym with all your heart, and with all your life, and with all your mind.
M't: 22:38: This is the first and great commandment.
1) Shemoth/Exodus: 20:2: I am YaHVeH thy Elohiym, which have brought you out of the land of Egypt/Mitsrayim, out of the house of bondage.
Egypt was the for runner of the Babylonian and Roman Empire [The EU with ten Islamic nations allied with it in these end times].
2) Shemoth: 20:3: You shall have no other elohiym before ME.
3) Shemoth: 20:4: You shall not make to you any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in shamayim above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
Shemoth: 20:5: You shall not bow down yourself to them, nor serve them: for I YaHVeH your Elohiym am a jealous El, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generation of them that hate ME;
Shemoth: 20:6: And showing chesed H2617/favor to thousands of them that love ME, and keep MY commandments.
4) Shemoth: 20:7: You shall not take the name of YaHVeH your Elohiym in vain; for YaHVeH will not hold him guiltless that takes HIS name in vain.
5) Shemoth: 20:8: Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it kodesh.
Shemoth: 20:9: Six days shall you labor, and do all your work:
Shemoth: 20:10: But the seventh day is the Sabbath of YaHVeH your Elohiym: in it you shall not do any work, you, or your ben, or your bath/daughter, your manservant, or your maidservant, or your cattle, or your stranger that is within your gates:
Shemoth: 20:11: For in six days YaHVeH made shamayim and erets/earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore YaHVeH barak/prospered the Sabbath day, and kadashH6942/purified it.
The right hand has a real important role in transferring YaHVeH's barakah/prospering and authority:
B'reshiyth/Genesis: 48:14: And Yisrael stretched out his right hand, and laid it on Ephrayim's head, who was the younger, and his left hand on Menashsheh's head, guiding his hands wittingly; for Menashsheh was the firstborn.
B'reshiyth: 48:17: And when Yoseph saw that his father laid his right hand on the head of Ephrayim, it displeased him: and he held up his father's hand, to remove it from Ephrayim's head to Menashsheh's head.
B'reshiyth: 48:18: And Yoseph said to his father, Not so, my father: for this is the firstborn; put your right hand on his head.
Shemoth: 15:6: YOUR Right Hand, O YaHVeH, is become adar H142/magnificent in power: YOUR Right Hand, O YaHVeH, has dashed in pieces the enemy.
Shemoth: 15:12: YOU stretched out YOUR Right Hand, the earth swallowed them.
Shemoth: 29:20: Then shall you kill the ram, and take of his blood, and put it on the tip of the right ear of Aharon, and on the tip of the right ear of his beniym, and on the thumb of their right hand, and on the great toe of their right foot, and sprinkle the blood on the altar round about.
V'yakra/Leviticus: 14:14: And the kohenH3548 shall take some of the blood of the trespass offering, and the kohen shall put it on the tip of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed, and on the thumb of his right hand, and on the great toe of his right foot:
The analogy I see with this verse in V`yakra/he called is:
A) The right ear = The hearing of the Law/Torah.
B) The right hand thumb = the doing of YaHVeH's Law/Torah.
C) The right foot great toe = the spreading of YaHVeH's Law/Torah throughout the earth.
Dabariym/Deuteronomy: 33:2: And he said, YaHVeH came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir to them; HE shined forth from mount Paran, and HE came with ten thousands of kodeshiymH6944: from HIS Right Hand went a fiery Law/Torah for them.
Shophetiym/Judges: 5:26: She put her hand to the nail, and her right hand to the workmen's hammer; and with the hammer she smote Sisera, she smote off his head, when she had pierced and stricken through his temples.
Shophetiym: 7:20: And the three companies blew the trumpets, and brake the pitchers, and held the lamps in their left hands, and the trumpets in their right hands to blow with: and they cried, The sword of YaHVeH, and of Gidon.
T'hiyliym/Psalm: 16:8: I have set YaHVeH always before me: because HE is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
T'hiyliym: 16:11: YOU will show me the path of life: in YOUR presence is fulness of joy; at YOUR Right Hand there are pleasures for evermore.
T'hiyliym: 17:7: Show YOUR marvelous loving kindness, O YOU that free/yasha by YOUR Right Hand them which put their trust in YOU from those that rise up against them.
T'hiyliym: 48:10: According to YOUR name, O Elohiym, so is YOUR praise to the ends of the earth: YOUR Right Hand is full of righteousness.
T'hiyliym: 78:54: And HE brought them to the border of HIS set apart/kodeshH6944, even to this mountain, which HIS Right Hand had purchased.
T'hiyliym: 80:17: Let YOUR HAND be on the Man/IyshH376 of YOUR Right Hand, on the Ben of AdamH120/Man whom YOU made strong for YOURSELF.
T'hiyliym: 110:1: YaHVeH said to my Rabbi, sit You at MY Right Hand, until I make Your enemies Your footstool.
Koheleth/Ecclesiastes: 10:2: A wise man's heart is at his right hand; but a fool's heart at his left.
Yasha'Yah/Isaiah: 41:10: Fear you not; for I am with you: be not dismayed; for I am your Elohiym: I will strengthen you; yes, I will help you; yes, I will uphold you with the Right Hand of MY Righteousness.
Yasha'Yah: 62:8: YaHVeH has sworn by HIS Right Hand, and by the Arm of HIS Strength, Surely I will no more give your corn to be meat for your enemies; and the beniym of the stranger shall not drink your wine, for the which you have labored:
Eychah/Lamentation: 2:3: HE has cut off in HIS fierce anger all the horn of Yisrael: HE has drawn back HIS Right Hand from before the enemy, and HE burned against Ya'akob like a flaming fire, which devours round about.
Eychah: 2:4: HE has bent HIS bow like an enemy: HE stood with HIS Right Hand as an adversary, and slew all that were pleasant to the eye in the tabernacle of the daughter of Ziyon: HE poured out HIS fury like fire.
Habakkuk: 2:16: You are filled with shame instead of kabodH3519/respect: drink you also, and let your foreskin be uncovered: the cup of YaHVeH's Right Hand shall be turned to you, and shameful spewing shall be on your splendor.
Matith'Yah: 5:30: And if your right hand offend you, cut it off, and cast it from you: for it is profitable for you that one of your members should perish, and not that your entire body should be cast into ge-hinnomG1067.
I see now the significance of this verse; obey YaHVeH's first five commandments first.
Matith`Yah: 22:44: YaHVeH said to my Rabbi, Sit You on MY Right Hand, till I make Your enemies Your footstool?
M't: 25:33: And HE shall set the sheep on His Right Hand, but the goats on the left.
M't: 25:34: Then shall the Melek say to them on His Right Hand, Come, all you barak/prospered of My FATHER, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
M't: 26:64: Yahshua said to him, You have said: nevertheless I say to you, Hereafter shall you all see the Ben of Adam sitting on the Right Hand of POWER, and coming in the clouds of shamayim.
Mark/Yahvchanan-Makabi: 16:19: So then after the Rabbi had spoken to them, He was received up into shamayim, and sat on the Right Hand of YaHVeH.
Acts: 2:33: Therefore being by the Right Hand of YaHVeH exalted, and having received of the FATHER the promise of the Kodesh Ruach, He has shed forth this, which you all now see and hear.
Acts: 5:29: Then Kepha and the other representatives/messengers answered and said, we ought to obey YaHVeH rather than men.
Acts: 5:30: The EL of our fathers raised up Yahshua, whom you all slew and hanged on a tree.
Acts: 5:31: HIM has EL exalted with HIS Right Hand to be a Prince/Sar and a Savior, for to give repentance to Yisrael, and forgiveness of sins.
Acts: 7:55: But he, being full of the Kodesh Ruach, looked up steadfastly into shamayim, and saw the doxaG1391/kabodH3519/splendor of YaHVeH, and Yahshua standing on the Right Hand of EL,
Hebrews/Iybriyiym: 10:12: But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the Right Hand of YaHVeH;
1 Kepha: 3:22: Who is gone into shamayim, and is on the Right Hand of YaHVeH; malakiym and authorities and powers being made subject to Him.
Revelations: 5:1: And I saw in the RIGHT HAND of HIM that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.
This is something that must be considered about the mark of the beast. The right hand signifies the first five commandments of YaHVeH. The beast power causes his subjects to receive his mark in their right hand or forehead, signifying obedience to him and his customs of worship (Dan. 7:25), and not YaHVeH the Elohiym of Yisrael including HIS Sabbaths.
Revelation: 13:16: And he causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
The English language is written from left to right. I believe this is a reflection on how today’s Christians are reading the commandments. We are remembering our left hand before we remember our right hand. We are loving our neighbor first and then YaHVeH:
Matith'Yah: 22:39: And the second is like to it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
M't: 22:40: On these two commandments hang all the Law/Torah and the nabiym/foretellers.
Christians are obeying the commandments and traditions of men before they obey YaHVeH the Elohiym of Yisrael:
M't: 15:9: But in vain they do worship ME, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
6) Shemoth: 20:12: Respect your father and your mother: that your days be long on the land which YaHVeH your Elohiym gives you.
7) Shemoth: 20:13: You shall not murder.
8) Shemoth: 20:14: You shall not commit adultery.
9) Shemoth: 20:15: You shall not steal.
10) Shemoth: 20:16: You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. Shemoth: 20:17: You shall not covet your neighbor's house, you shall not covet you neighbor's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbor's.
Because the last two verses deal with your neighbor they are counted as one.
The thundering, lightning and the voice as of a shophar/trumpet are all signs and symbols of The Word of YaHVeH giving HIS Law/Torah.
Shemoth: 20:18: And all the people regarded the thundering, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off.
Revelation: 11:19: And the Heykal of YaHVeH was opened in shamayim, and there was seen in HIS Heykal/House the ark of HIS testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thundering, and an earthquake, and great hail.
In summery: YaHVeH's Law/Torah HIS statutes and judgments can be condensed into 10 commandments for quick reference. The ETERNAL`S 10 commandments can be summed up into 2 commandments: Love YaHVeH first, then love your neighbor. Summing them up does not do away with them, it is just a shorter way to explain them.
1) The 10 commandments were given on tablets of stone. These tablets of stone pictured the hard heart of mankind:
Yechizki'Yah/Ezekiel: 11:19: And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new Ruach within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh:
2) The tablets of stone were placed in the ark. The ark represented our heart.
3) The ark was place in the tabernacle, which represented our bodies:
Iybriyiym/Hebrews: 9:2: For there was a tabernacle made; the first, wherein was the candlestick/menorah, and the table, and the show bread; which is called the mikdashH4720.
Iybriyiym: 9:3: And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the Kodesh of all;
Iybriyiym: 9:4: Which had the golden censer, and the ark of the covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was the golden pot that had manna, and Aharon's rod that budded, and the tables of the covenant;
2 Corinthians: 5:1: For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of YaHVeH, a house not made with hands, eternal in the shamayim.
2 Co: 5:4: For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not so that we would be unclothed, but clothed, that mortality be swallowed up for life.
1 Co: 6:19: What? Know you all not that your body is the Heykal/House of the Kodesh Ruach which is in you, which you all have of YaHVeH, and you all are not your own?
