Summary: The Vow we made to God was to come out from amoung the world.Being Bold to speak was never popular.
To Make a Vow What is it to make a vow? WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that a law meant to punish pornographers that peddle dirty pictures to Web-surfing kids is probably an unconstitutional muzzle on free speech. Eccl 5.When thou vowest a vow, defer not to pay it. What is a vow? A solemn promise; as the vows of unchangeable love and fidelity. In a moral and religious sense, vows are promises to God, as they appeal to God to witness their sincerity, and the violation of them is a most heinous offense. Haven’t we all taken a vow to God, when we accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior? Doesn’t Gods word demand that we believe and follow after Jesus, doesn’t His word mean the truth in all things to us, and the answer is, yes. The Bible is not just words that we hear on Sunday or Wednesday night, it is a way of life for us, or at least it should be. But many are trying to use Gods word for political advantage, many are saying that one man is better than another and ignoring the word of God. Righteousness in man? , Not according to Gods word. Psa 14:3 They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Our righteousness comes from God, His righteousness clothes us. Our witness for God must be one of sincerity and truth. Our vow to God was to believe in His Son Jesus and our Vow to Jesus was to believe and follow His commandments. Unrighteousness is abounding in the world and has started its way into the world of Christianity, why? We are becoming lax in our perception of what righteousness is.
Isa 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
Job 15:14 What is man, that he should be clean? And he, which is born of a woman, that he should be righteous? The Bible tells us that we are to give honor to whom honor is due; we honor our leadership but not the unrighteousness that man inhabits. Can we say with a true heart that one man, born of woman, is better than another, and if we do, do we reject the word of God? Harsh questions, but questions that we must all answer for ourselves. We may be, the terminal generation that will see many signs and wonders upon the earth, we must be prepared to make choices that will affect our destiny and the destiny of others. The church that Jesus established was not and is not a political establishment or power, many say that Jesus stayed out of the worldly affaires of the Roman laws governing the Israelites and Sanhedron, but wish to become involved in the political climate of today. These things beget strife within the church. We are not a political power but as Jesus established a Spiritual Power. John 18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence. Is the church trying to establish a kingdom upon this world, is it trying to override the express will of Jesus, I hope not. WE are in the world but not of the world. Any thing that begets strife, confusion, hatred we are to remain separated from. Act 19:29 And the whole city was filled with confusion: and having caught Gaius and Aristarchus, men of Macedonia, Paul’s companions in travel, they rushed with one accord into the theatre.
