Taking the name of the Lord’s name in vain


The other day I was listening to a presentation about taking the Lord’s name in vain which has been associated with swearing and using the name of Jesus as a curse. But is this what the commandment means? I don’t not think so. (I will leave the video below to listen to as to verify and hear the 24 minute sermon but obviously swearing using Jesus is the natural meaning)

Thou shalt not take the Name of the Lord thy God in vaine: for the Lord will not holde him guiltlesse, that taketh his Name in vaine.

Exodus 20:7

What does Jesus say about these commandments?

He that hath my commandements, and keepeth them, hee it is that loueth me: and he that loueth me shall be loued of my Father, and I will loue him, and will manifest my selfe to him.

John 14:6

It is about identifying Jesus in a false way. Using a false bibles that do not have the testimony of the real Jesus but a false Jesus. That happens because the words have been changed in modern bibles. You see in this world there is a false Christ as presented by the Anti-Christ. We know that Lucifer wants to be like the most high and therefore will present the false Christ through his corrupt bibles that spew out of the mouth of Leviathan. (See Job 40-41 and specifically –
Behold, he drinketh vp a riuer, and hasteth not: he trusteth that he can draw vp Iordan into his mouth.)

So when we hear people like Kenneth Copland and many others calling on the name of Jesus they are not referring to –

That which was from þe beginning, which wee haue heard, which wee haue seene with our eyes, which wee haue looked vpon, and our hands haue handled of the word of life.

(For the life was manifested, and we haue seene it, and beare witnes, and shew vnto you that eternall life which was with the Father, and was manifested vnto vs.)

That which wee haue seene and heard, declare we vnto you, that ye also may haue felowship with vs; and truely our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Sonne Iesus Christ.

They are referring to their Christ whom they serve and are rewarded with great riches and fame while they persecute real believers but that is just an aside. I often hear people repeating the name of Jesus over and over again like a mantra. Could that be taking the name of the Lord in vain? I think it is.

But when yee pray, vse not vaine repetitions, as the heathen doe. For they thinke that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
