Luke 7:28 "I say to you, Among those born of Woman, there is not a greater than John, yet the LEAST in the KINGDOM of GOD is superior to him".

(Matt. 22:37). “Jesus said unto him, thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy Heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
And then he added
V38. “This is the first and great Commandment”.
We will see why.
This is a key to Pleasing God, and if we please God now, God tells us in his word that we are then in a Blessed state with him, this means our lives will be as they should be on Earth now, we will be in Gods Favor, and we can’t do better than that, because the end result of this life will be the Treasures we will have built up in Heaven: This is what life on Earth is all about, getting ready for the real and Eternal life: lets look at what follows Matt. 22: 37-38.
Jesus tells us to love God, but how do we really do that? How do we sort out the Human emotion called love, that Hormonal one?


(1 John. 5:3). “For this is the love of God, that we keep his Commandments: and his Commandments are not grievous”.
Now there is no mystery, it is clear what we have to do, to Love God, and exactly in the way it is to be done.
To express our love for God, we must keep all his Commandments, not just some: Those who break the least of the Commandments, and that’s the Ten, they are guilty of them all (it is written).
So then we know we love God in the way that God will take pleasure in, when we do his Commandments and like to do so, (not find them grievous), and that we are happy to do so.
One Commandment that is of great importance, and is a test to us is the keeping of the Sabbath: The Sabbath is a “Perpetual”, for “Eternity” commandment, given before the other nine and reaffirmed with the giving of the nine making the “Ten Commandments”, and these ten were not “nailed to the cross” as were the “ordinances laws” the ten were written in stone by Gods hand, and the Ordinance laws were written by Moses hand.
The ordinance Laws were written later by the people Israel on rocks plastered with clay, in order that they remembered the great number of them. Now that’s where some get confused and do not understand the Scriptures, these were not the Ten written by God’s
Hand in the Tablets of stone as a Perpetual Sign, of those who keep them, showing they are truly God’s people, his Chosen ones, amongst all Nations. (Deuteronomy. 27:2)
Now we need to have all that clear, as a conviction of belief and faith, as an understanding given by God’s word to those who truly Believe into Jesus Christ, and that means that we will do all of Gods Commands, or we do not Believe into Jesus Christ, that is written. “If ye will enter into life, keep the Commandments”
The Sabbath is a perpetual, (which means Eternity), commandment; it’s here to stay!
It means much more to God than a shadow of the rest to come in Eternal life, and much more for those who keep it as God intended or prescribed.
The Sabbath keeping is also a mark of those who are truly God’s ones; it is God’s mark, sealing those who are his, because it is a test of obedience, the flesh fighting off it’s natural lust for all things to it’s satisfaction, during that 24 hour period, that we can and will give God just a little even of our time: God has Great time in store for those who are prepared to give him time!
(1 Cor. 2:9). “But it is written, eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the Heart of man, the things which God prepared for those who love him”.
And how then do we love God? We obey all his commandments, not just some!
Love God
It is the first and greatest commandment
How do we Love God
We show our love for God by obeying the Ten Commandments
This is the formula for life-now and later!
Those sealed; (Revelations. 7:3) “Saying, hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God, in their foreheads”: Now it goes on to describe the tribes of Israel, 12,000 of each to 144,000, some of them are scattered amongst us, you or I could be one!
Then the sealed ones are mentioned in V9 following “After this I beheld, and lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindred’s, and people, and tongues, stood before the Throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and Palms in their hands”. And these ones are also saved, that no man could number!
