THE TEN COMMANDMENTS IS RATHER THE TEN BLESSINGS !!!!
The Exodus 20 Ten Commandments contain all that is necessary, and no more than is necessary, both as to their number and their order, while the Lord's prayer is complete in ten clauses - better interpreting the Ten Commandments as Activating the Ten Blessings of God.
The Lord's Prayer - The Spoken Out 10 Commanded Blessings of God in ten clauses !!!
These clauses have the significance of their respective numbers as in the Original 10 Commandments:—
The first, God's sovereignty - Our God rules over all creation even unseen.
The second, Jehovah's manifested Name - We will use you Name to invoke Your Power.
The third, the realization of God's kingdom - Our Right is to Rule & Reign on Earth.
The fourth first mentions the earth - Our Power to ENFORCE God's Rule on Earth.
The fifth, the gift of grace supplies all our need as we give away the same grace.
The sixth treats of sin - Adultery from God not necessarily sex sin only.
The seventh pleads for spiritual guidance - Which is Guaranteed.
The eighth pleads for deliverance from all evil - The Blood of Jesus - The Answer.
The ninth sums up the divine glory: The Power, Kingdom and Glory - Our Daily Weapons
The tenth completes the eternal cycles - Eternal life is our Portion & Destiny.
The Tithes - Given to Remind us of these 10 Commanded Blessings
The tithes represent the whole of what was due from man to God, as marking and recognizing God's claim on the whole.
The Redemption Money
The redemption money was ten gerahs, and thus was acknowledged both what God claimed, and what man was responsible to give. Now ten gerahs was half a shekel (Exodus 30:12-16; Numbers 3:47). Every male that was numbered, over 20 years of age, must pay this sum and meet God's claim. *
* When David numbered the people (2Samuel 24 and 1Chronicles 21), this payment was not made and God's claim was not met. Hence the judgment which followed.
But the first-born were to pay ten times as much; for when God took the Levites instead of the first-born of Israel, there were found 22,273 first-born males, but only 22,000 Levites. So that 273 had to pay the ransom money, which amounted to ten times ten gerahs. Thus, though the five shekels looked like a variation, the significance of ten is sustained, for the five shekels were ten times the "half shekel." (See Numbers 3:12,13,40-51).
The Ten Plagues on Egypt was The Ten Wonders to Israel
The ten plagues were representative of the complete circle of God's judgments on Egypt. Exodus 9:14, "I will . . . send all my plagues."

SOMETHING I RECIEVED GOD WILL DO AT THE END OF THESE 10 DAYS:
God moved back the shadow on the sundial of Ahaz of ten degrees as a sign that He was going to deliver Hezekiah from his mortal sickness and the city where he was. (Is 38,1-8).
God is about to produce a miraculous sign and wonder for someone after these 10 Days of waiting that would bring about a real blessing and a God orchestrated and prospered legacy.
