Part 3 - The Fall and the Restoration
Overview: The Model of Restoration: Commandment One
Yahweh identifies Himself as the one who delivered Israel out of bondage from Egypt. Only Israel can literally relate to God in this. The nature of the first four commandments is the preservation of Israel as a separate and special nation belonging to Yahweh. The believer can relate to these commandments in a spiritual application. The main reason for the fall of man was the turning of his heart away from God in rebellion. The model of restoration foremost concerns that of the heart, where God must be restored as being all in all. This is putting Yahweh back into His rightful place as Lord and God in one's life.
