of God and has settled him in the Garden of Eden which is a prototype of paradise. The Lord God created a man for the love and gave him the choice, endowed him with all His blessings, and the most
important, the Lord God communicated with him face to face, and that helped a man to overcome the depression, which people are having now on the earth, since the heart of man was filled with blessed love of God. The Lord God created a person for His Glory and sharing instead of
the fallen Satan and 1/3 angels.
Satan and his angels have been deprived of the God’s presence. For this reason, Satan will apply all his craftiness and will do everything possible to prevent a man from glorifying the God. Satan knows,
that if the person glorifies the God, he will have no depressions, on the contrary, the God will be in his heart, instead of a Satan, and the man will be taken for ever to a blessed place near God’s Grace Throne to glorify Him through Eternity.
When a man lived in the Garden of Eden, there was only one commandment – not to eat the apple from the tree of knowledge.
The person was free to choose, but he had chosen the sin by breaking this single commandment, and thus experienced the evil and sin that inevitably brought the curse, the diseases, depressions, and hard
The evil grew inside a man, and the man began to destroy himself.
The main reason, why God gave His Ten Commandments to the people was to prevent humankind from self-destruction.
The Ten Commandments were given for the great love of the Lord to the man. They were given for a man to honour and execute the Word of the Living God, thus having found the God who
then will not let a man to suffer from any curse or problems.
The second reason was that the man should worship to the God, not the Satan through idolatry, because God’s worship means His sacred blessings to the person, and the worship to
Satan means only curse.
The third reason was just as it is written in 1-st Message of Apostle Peter
chapter 1, verses 15-16:
"…but, like the Holy One who called you, become holy yourselves in all of your conduct, for it is written, “You shall be holy, because I am holy”.
How to prove it?
Let's read some places from the Bible:
The Lord God said to Adam,
"Because you obeyed your wife and ate from the tree about which I commanded you, you must not eat from it, cursed is the ground thanks to you; in painful toil you will eat of it all the days of your
In Genesis chapter 4, verses 6-13 it is written:
4:6 The LORD said to Cain, "Why are you angry, and why has your countenance fallen?
4:7 If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin is couching at the door; its desire is for you, but you must master it."
4:8 Cain said to his brother Abel, "Let's go out to the field." While they were in the field, Cain attacked his brother Abel and killed him.
4:9 Then the Lord said to Cain, "Where is your brother Abel?" And he replied, "I don't know! Am I
my brother's guardian?"
4:10 But the Lord said, "What have you done? The voice of your brother's blood is crying out to
me from the ground!
4:11 So now, you are banished from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your
brother's blood from your hand.
4:12 When you try to cultivate the ground it will no longer yield its best for you. You will be a
homeless wanderer on the earth."
4:13 Then Cain said to the Lord, "My punishment is too great to endure!
From these verses of the Bible it is obvious that through the sin a man experienced the evil and a curse that was able to destroy other person and which brought a curse of the Lord.
We know that any country has its laws. If there were no laws, mankind would exist under a law of survival i.e. whoever is stronger. Nowadays, we are having many examples when stronger country tries to
dictate its conditions to another country.
Thus, Russia tries to dictate its conditions to Ukraine and the Europe through controlling the supplies of petroleum to them, and the United States justify itself in conducting fair wars. That is why so
many countries are on war: Iraq, the Czech Republic, Yugoslavia, India, Pakistan.
The history of humankind was based on evil and wars because people didn’t have God in their hearts any more.
If there were no Ten Commandments then the chaos, violence and depravity would reign the world.
Owing to Ten Commandments countries began to establish laws which originate from the Commandments.
Lord God also cared about the rest and health of the man.
For example, Fourth Commandment tells about Saturday (now this is Sunday).
The Lord gave the Fourth Commandment in order people do not work, thus showing their respect to the Lord, visit churches and worship this day to the God and through their devoted worship receive His
presence in their lives.
We know from the history that prior to the rise of Christianity people sacrificed their children to idols such as Moloch. Such behavior was the reason why the Lord provided the First, Second, and Third
Commandments where He interdicted to worship idols. It is written in the Bible that the God had not even an idea of sacrificing children to the idols. This is an outrageous murder.
However, in our days, numerous satanic sects try to sacrifice children and people, don’t they?
There is also an example about respect to the parents.
Look, what happens now in relations between children and parents. Haven’t our parents deserved the respect and care in old ages? We will also become old, won’t we? If we do not esteem our parents, how
can we esteem the God?
There are two kinds of blessings. They are the God's and the parents' blessings.
One cannot get the blessings of the God if he has no parents' blessings.
The Bible says in Ephesians chapter 6 verses 1 through 3
1. Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is
2. Honor your father and mother" (this is the
first commandment with a promise),
3. that it may be well with you and that you may
live long on the earth.
The Wise Lord gave this commandment for parents to teach us. This is a man who choose if to follow this commandment or not, to receive blessings or a curse. And this is the God’s justice.
Let's consider one more Commandment – "You shall not commit adultery!"
You can say that the Lord deprives a man of a carnal pleasure and that God doesn't care about people.
Ask yourself: what was the health of our grandparents? And what health we and our children have now? Why is the health getting worse?
The answer is simple: because the mankind has stuck in depravity, and infects each with different illnesses. Through sexual contacts, people get such diseases as AIDS, the syphilis,
cervical cancer, etc. This is a quality of a human body – if a person violates the Commandment “not to commit adultery”, he “acquires” new diseases.
The Lord compares a breach of faith in the family to betray of the Lord. That is why in the Bible (Old Testament) classifies the idolatry as adultery and fornication.
Moreover, the Lord very strictly punishes the man for his breach of commandment "You shall not commit adultery" even during his life on the earth.
The Bible says in Hebrews chapter 13 verse 4
4. Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the
marriage bed be undefiled; for God will judge the immoral and adulterous.
Such people often do not live long, having weak health and many diseases.
There are plenty of other examples for each commandment, but you may see them additionally in sermons which will be written specially on each commandment on the website of FIKO Ltd.
In this sermon I wish to pay attention to the condemnation the person will get, if the does not follow the Ten Commandments.
Let's address to the Bible.
The Exodus chapter 20 verses 4 through 5
4. You shall not make for yourself a graven image, or any
likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth;
shall not bow down to them or serve them; for I the LORD your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me,
In Deuteronomy chapter 27 verse26
26. "Cursed be he who does not confirm the words of this law by doing them. And all the people shall say, 'Amen.'"
The man loved the sin so much, so that even damnation which passes on his children can't stop him. Today mass media is overloaded by announcements of a destiny prediction, personal horoscopes services,
treatment by extrasensory individuals, and sorcerers. Even more, those psychics receive medical licenses in the Christian countries. All this is done by a deceit of a Satan.
The person involved in this gives his soul to a Satan. Moreover, very often many churches, which have influence on the government, agree with it.
This is illustrated in the Bible
Romans chapter 1 verses 25, 28-32.
25 They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones.
27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty
for their perversion.
28 Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done.
29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips,
30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents;
31 they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless.
32 Although they know God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.
The churches and priests should explain to the population a simple truth, that if the people break one of those Ten Commandments the damnation comes into their lives.
Once I had a situation in my life. I arrived to funeral of my aunt who was buried by the priest of Orthodox Church, and we went drove together. The priest told me that he had buried a young boy, who had
died of alcoholism. I asked him whether burial service helped that boy, and whether he would get to paradise. The priest answered with words from the Bible, "fornicators and drunkards do not inherit the Kingdom of Heaven".
I asked him why he read burial service. The priest answered that this is a tradition. When I asked why the Orthodox Church did not curse such people, as it was earlier, I received the answer that we -
Evangelists could allow it, but Orthodox Church does not curse anybody since all are parishioners.
The Priests should explain to people that for breaking the commandment "You shall not commit the adultery" God judges the person already here on the earth.
I shall not repeat once again how much sorrow and distress the violating of that commandment brought to families and children. If you broke this commandment by adultery, then answer not to me but to
yourself if everything is O.K. with your health, family, job, etc.
IF YOU VIOLATE ONE OF THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, THEN THE ONLY WAY OUT IS TO ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST AS A PERSONAL SAVIOUR OF YOUR LIFE.
At the beginning of the Bible there is a history about Sodom and Gomorrah. When homosexuality, fornication, and adultery prospered in these cities, the Lord burnt these cities by the fiery rain.
Has not a whole planet become Sodom and Gomorrah and stuck in debauch?
In the Bible. 2 Peter chapter 3 verse 7
"But by the same word the heavens and earth that now exist have been stored up for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.»
The first time when the Lord sent the fire over the Sodom and Gomorrah as an example to the future generations, as the Bible tells us, if there were ten righteous men, then the Lord would not destroyed
these cities. Punishment does not come yet on the earth because there live more than ten righteous people, but when the Lord will lift the Church from the earth then God's judgment will come to earth. And this time is already approaching.
The Bible says that if God takes away His Church and Holy Spirit from the earth, then punishment will begin. Therefore, dear friends, only through confession you can become the righteous person also
and when the time comes the God will take you with Him to His Heaven before His judgment befalls to this land.
I advise you to make a pray of repentance.
I personally prayed like this:
Forgive me all my conscious and unconscious sins.
I renounce any sin and evil. I renounce you, The Satan.
Jesus, I trust that You died for me on Calvary and shed Your Sacred Blood.
I trust that through this prayer of confession You will forgive me all
my sins and wash them away with Your Sacred blood.
Come into my heart, wash my sins with Your Blood and be my Lord.
Let me be born from on high through Your Word and the Holy Spirit.
Open Your Holy Writ to me. Confide in me and come into my heart and be My Lord to
my dying day and save my soul for Your Holy Kingdom”

Visiting the church provide no redemption, but the Lord DOES, though one shouldn’t leave the church as the Word of God tells us.
