Vows & Oaths

It is important that people know that a vow carries much weight and bring forth effects according to weather one keeps a vow or breaks it. Broken vows cause conflict, not something Christ is looking for in his bride.
Numbers 30:1-2 (KJV)
1And Moses spake unto the heads of the tribes concerning the children of Israel, saying, This is the thing which the LORD hath commanded.
2If a man vow a vow unto the LORD, or swear an oath to bind his soul with a bond; he shall not break his word, he shall do according to all that proceedeth out of his mouth.
Deuteronomy 23:21-22
21When thou shalt vow a vow unto the LORD thy God, thou shalt not slack to pay it: for the LORD thy God will surely require it of thee; and it would be sin in thee.
22But if thou shalt forbear to vow, it shall be no sin in thee.
It is better not to make a vow than to make one and fail to keep your part. This will "surely" bring forth chastisement. Therefore if you seek to make a vow dont make it a challenge unto yourself.
Matthew 5:33-37
33Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths:
34But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne: (/Jas.5:12/ Is.66:1)
35Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King. (/Ps.48:2)
36Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.
37But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.
*Ecclesiastes 5:4-7 *
4When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed.
5Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay.
6Suffer not thy mouth to cause thy flesh to sin; neither say thou before the angel, that it was an error: wherefore should God be angry at thy voice, and destroy the work of thine hands?
7For in the multitude of dreams and many words there are also divers vanities: but fear thou God.
(error- Hebrew# 7683:a mistake or inadvertent transgression: - error, in ignorance, at unawares, unwittingly.)

1 Jn.1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
1 Jn.2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
Proverbs 20:25
25It is a snare to the man who devoureth that which is holy, and after vows to make enquiry.
Proverbs 6:2
2Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth.
Leviticus 19:12
12And ye shall not swear by my name falsely, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD.
Matthew 15:11,18/ Matt.7:20/ 1 Corinthians 3:13/ Acts 5:3-4/ Matt.23:16
God's Word is truth and he holds us to our word as well.

____________Dont blame God____________________
There are standards to be met for one to recieve blessings and chastisement too is an effect of ones actions and or spiritual embrace. It is best to live under Grace (unmerited favor) than to bring forth more requirements of yourself to show thyself approved. You can not of yourself acheive victory over the grave or the Law.
A part of repentance is often to accept the punishment of your actions and or spiritual embrace. We are never to blame God neither for temptation or for bad happenings. We bring things on ourselves, and we are not yet living in the kingdom.
Jer. 23 says to NEVER say the burden of the Lord (to blame God). In this area we are told of the effects for such. (Jer.23:39-40) > 1) God will forget utterly Forget you 2) Forsake you 3) Cast You out of his presence 4) bring an EVERLASTING Reproach and Perpetual Shame upon you that shall not be forgotten.
_______Comparing to the unpardonable sin______________
Luke 12:10 (11-12) And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven.
Hebrews 10:26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
Mark 3:29 But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation.
Matthew 12:25-30 / 1 Jn.5:16/ Mark 13:11/
(Revelation 22:18/ Acts 2:4-6)

The unpardonable sin consists of knowing better
Knowing better:
* Luke 12:47-48/* 2 Peter 2:21/ Jer.4:22/ (Rom. 16:17-19/ Jer.5:21-23 suggest spirit of slumber study/ Rom. 11:8/Is. 29:10-13/some are given the spirit of slumber for a good reason)
Luke 23:34
Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.
Also note how the pulpit will be judged first!
_______The sacrifice_______________________
Christ became our Passover (sacrifice) and Sabbath (rest) by which salvation is open to whomsoever shall be drawn to it (Jn.6:44)! Yet if one rejects the mercy of the Almighty they don't recieve it (simple enough?). God keeps His promises and shall hold us to ours.
1 John 1:9
9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
1 John 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
The tourment of the lake of fire (just prior to perishing/ 2nd death) is the realization of truth. (That such spirits were gulity and rejected the blueprint for forgiveness/life. (also suggest blog: "Our Words")
