Many people who claim to believe in God say they keep the first commandment, 'You shall have no other gods before me.'
Then, as they claim, if we just believe in God, can we keep the first commandment?
Let's check it out through the teachings of the Bible.

First, let's take a look at the words of Jesus.

Matthew 22:37~38
Jesus replied;" 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all you mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment."

Jesus taught us that when we love our God with all our heart, all our soul and all our mind, we can keep the first commandment.
How can we keep the first commandment that Jesus mentioned?
We can find the answer through the Bible.

2 Kings 23:25
Neither before nor after Josiah was there a king like him who turned to the LORD as he did- with all his heart and with all his soul and with all his strength, in accordance with all the Law of Moses.

The Bible tells us that King Josiah kept the first commandment that Jesus mentioned.
If so, how was he able to keep the first commandment, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind."?

2 Kings 23:21~23
The king gave this order to all people;"Celebrate the Passover to the LORD your God, as it is written in this Book of the Covenant."....But in the eighteenth year of King Josiah, this Passover was celebrated to the LORD in Jerusalem.

What did Josiah keep? It was the Passover.
By celebrating the Passover, Josiah was commended by God as one who kept the first and greatest commandment that Jesus spoke about. Then, if we keep the Passover like Josiah, we can be approved that we keep the first commandment of God.

Now let us find out how we can keep the first commandment by keeping the Passover.
The first commandment is "You shall have no other gods before me." This implies two commandments: "you shall worship no other gods" and "you shall worship only God."
The Bible tells us that we can keep these commandments by keeping the Passover.

Exodus 12:12
"On that same night I will pass through Egypt and strike down every firstborn-both men and animals- and I will bring judgement on all the gods of Egypt. I am the LORD."

"On that night" is the "Passover night"(Ex 12:11).
God promised that He would judge every god on the Passover. If God judge all other gods on the Passover, who alone remains?
Only God remains.
Therefore, we can keep the first commandment only when we celebrate the Passover.

Is it possible to keep the first commandment just by believing in God? No.
The only people who love God with all their heart, mind and soul by keeping the Passover according to God's teaching are the members of the Church of God.

    In the word of God "You shall have no other gods before me" implies that we must believe only God and we shouldn't worship any other gods before God. It is very important but difficult to recognize true God and distinguish God from other gods. So our God himself allowed us how to keep the first and the greatest commandment of God. It is to keep the Passover of the New Covenant. If we keep the Passover of the New Covenant we can serve only God because other gods will be destroyed. Let us keep the Passover of the New Covenant and serve only Elohim God who are God the Father and God the Mother by keeping the first and the greatest commandment of God.

    We should have no other gods before God. It is the first commandment. So we should keep it. Then how can we keep it? It has two meanings that we must believe in only God and we should not worship any other gods. We can do it when we keep the Passover. So to keep the Passover is the only way that we can keep the first commandment.

    According to the Word of Jesus 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all you mind', we can completely keep the first commandment of the Ten when we love God with all our heart and with all our soul and with all our mind. The Passover of the new covenant is the way to love God with all our heart and with all our soul. Jesus established the new covenant Passover 2000 years ago. However, it disappeared during the Dark Ages. According to the prophecies of the Bible, Christ Ahnsahnghong restored the new covenant. I give etenral thanks to Christ Ahnsahnghong for restoring the Passover of the new covenant for us to keep the first commandment.

    Jesus taught us that the first commandment is to love God with all our heart and with all our soul and with all our mind. Then, how can we do to follow the teaching of God? In the Bible, Josiah, the king of Israel, kept the Passover, so that he was approved by God to keep the first commandment as Jesus taught. When keeping the Passover like Josiah, we can be approved by God.
    Here, we can fully understand that to celebrate the Passover is to keep the first commandment. In this age, Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother allowed us to keep the Passover, so that we can realize our saviors: Father and Mother.

    All commands from God are so important for the salvation of our souls. Whoever despises them will be blocked at the heaven's gate.
    The first commandment is the first thing to be kept by those who want to be saved by God!
    It never depends just on our hearts, but should be accompanied by deeds.
    This was why God has established the Passover of the new covenant for us.
    Concerning this Passover, many people think that it has nothing to do with eternal salvation.
    Around the world, only the WMSCOG keeps this Passover!

    Now I realize that only those who keep the Passover can keep the first commandment of God!!!
    Keeping the Passover, we can serve only God, not other gods.
    Keeping the Passover, we can love each other because we inherit the flesh and blood of God!! 🙂
    Therefore, the way to keep the first commandment is to keep the Passover!

    If you keep the Passover, you will love only God and all other gods will be judged.
    The only way to fully keep the first commandment is to keep the Passover.
    In the whole world, only the World Mission Society Church of God is keeping the New Covenant Passover completely.

    God ordained the Passover as a day to bring judgment on other gods. Therefore, if we keep the Passover, other gods will be destroyed and we will be able to serve only God. In other words, if we observe the Passover, we will be able to keep the first commandment of the Ten Commandments. Through the Passover, God opens the spiritual eyes of His children so that they can break down idols and recognize and believe in the true God. Therefore, if we do not keep the Passover, we will automatically worship idols and follow other gods than God. Let us give thanks to God Elohim for helping us realize the true God through the Passover and lead us to the path of salvation.

    We can love the Lord our God with all our heart and with all our soul and with all our mind through the Passover. And we can have no other gods before God through the Passover. We can keep the first commandment through the Passover. We can worship only God through the Passover and other gods will be destroyed through the Passover!
