Shemot 20 - Exodus 20
The Word "TORAH" means to teach, to point out as aiming the finger. The Torah gives us the awareness of our sinful nature that we need Messiah Yeshua to set us free from the bondage of sin. The Torah is seen as Hashem's set of INSTRUCTION TOOL concerning how we should conduct our lives so that they may grow from spiritual babies in the Messiah to spiritual maturity. As you could see the below mention the 10 Mitzvot was given 50 days after Yisrâeil left the land of Mitzrayim, does this reminds us of the Shauv'ot, the Ruach HaKodesh dwells in the heart of the believer. From that time onwards, New Covenant believer will be guided by the Ruach Hakodesh to fullfill the Torah as a new living way of life.

For [in] six days YHWH (יהוה) made Shamayim and earth, the sea, and all that in them [is], and rested the yom hashevi'i (7th day): wherefore YHWH (יהוה) barak (blessed) ha Yom Shabbat, and set apart it.
