As I was researching these articles, it became clear through the scriptures why Yahewa was prepared to immediately destroy those exiting Egypt. He described them as being stiffnecked (unchangeable, stubborn). I recognized there is a comparison between the people in Noah’s time who were being warned as those of today’s world are. They are no different from the Israelites exiting Egypt.

The laws of the SECOND table, that is, the last six of the ten commandments, state our duty to ourselves and to one another, and explain the great commandment, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, Luke 10:27. Godliness and honesty must go together. The fifth commandment concerns the duties we owe to our relations.

The Christian sabbath, the first day of the week, observed in remembrance of the resurrection of Christ. Let us who call him “Our Lord,” honour him on his own day. The name shows how this sacred day should be observed; the Lord’s day should be wholly devoted to the Lord, and none of its hours employed in a sensual, worldly manner, or in amusements. He was in a serious, heavenly, spiritual frame, under the gracious influences of the Spirit of God. Those who would enjoy communion with God on the Lord’s day, must seek to draw their thoughts and affections from earthly things. And if believers are kept on the Lord’s holy day, from public ordinances and the communion of saints, by necessity and not by choice, they may look for comfort in meditation and secret duties, from the influences of the Spirit; and by hearing the voice and contemplating the glory of their beloved Saviour, from whose gracious words and power no confinement or outward circumstances can separate them.
