Christianity Oasis Ministry has provided you with this Christian Vows on Making a Christian Oath study. We'll be looking into that and all aspects of the Christian Walk. This SON-derful study reveals truth to bring forth understanding and peace within.



CHRISTIAN VOWS
CHRISTIAN OATH


When one reads God's Word, oft times they run across the words Vow and Oath.

What are Christian Vows and what is a Christian Oath?

Are Christian Vows and a Christian Oath the same thing?

Oath ... is swearing or promising about something or to perform something, whether it be made to or by God or man.

God's Old and New Covenants are laws and guidelines with a vow of PROMISE ... IF mankind abided or will abide by said Covenant.

Mankind often made vows to God in the Bible.

Here is an example ...

Genesis 28:20-22
And Jacob vowed a vow
, saying, If God will be with me, and
will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on, So that I come again to my father's house in peace; then shall the LORD be my God: And this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be God's house: and of all that thou shalt give me I will surely give the tenth unto thee.

Mankind, over the years has vowed (Promised or swore) that IF God would do this and that that they would do this or that.


CHRISTIAN VOWS BIBLE STUDY
CHRISTIAN OATH PURPOSE

In the Bible ... Christian Oathswere made BOTHby man AND by God ...

Matthew 26:72
And again he (Peter) denied with an
oath
, I do not know the man (Jesus).

Luke 1:73
The
oath which He (God) sware to our father Abraham.

CHRISTIANOATHS are that which the VOW (Promise) is confirmed by ...

For example ...

Hebrews 6:17
Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an
Oath ...

In other words ... God CONFIRMED His Christian Promise (VOW) with the Christian OATH.

AND THE CHRISTIAN OATH ... WAS HIMSELF.

Hebrews 6:13
For when God made promise (VOW)to Abraham, because He could swear by no greater,
He sware by Himself ...


CHRISTIAN VOWS BLESSING
CHRISTIAN OATH PROMISE


Referring to when God swore to give him the land for a heritage and said I am the Lord, to CONFIRM His vow.

Exodus 6:8
And I will bring you in unto the land, concerning the which I did swear to give it to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; and I will give it you for an heritage: I am the LORD.

Many still make oaths all the time,such as saying "God as my witness, or on my Mother's grave or I swear on my life" as to convincethe other of the honesty of their words or promise to perform ...

They do this to get the one they are making a vow to believe the vow.

Hebrews 6:16
For men verily swear by the greater: and an
oath for confirmation is to them an end of all strife.

Here is the Old Covenant Law given by the Lord

Numbers 30:2
If 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.

There are special rules when it comes women to making vows.

Numbers 30:3-16
If a woman also
vow a vow unto the LORD, and bind herself by a bond, being in her father's house in her youth; And her father hear her vow, and her bond wherewith she hath bound her soul, and her father shall hold his peace at her; then all her vows shall stand, and every bond wherewith she hath bound her soul shall stand. But if her father disallow her in the day that he heareth; not any of her vows, or of her bonds wherewith she hath bound her soul, shall stand: and the LORD shall forgive her, because her father disallowed her. And if she had at all an husband, when she vowed, or uttered ought out of her lips, wherewith she bound her soul; And her husband heard it, and held his peace at her in the day that he heard it: then her vows shall stand, and her bonds wherewith she bound her soul shall stand. But if her husband disallowed her on the day that he heard it; then he shall make her vow which she vowed, and that which she uttered with her lips, wherewith she bound her soul, of none effect: and the LORD shall forgive her. But every vow of a widow, and of her that is divorced, wherewith they have bound their souls, shall stand against her. And if she vowed in her husband's house, or bound her soul by a bond with an oath; And her husband heard it, and held his peace at her, and disallowed her not: then all her vows shall stand, and every bond wherewith she bound her soul shall stand. But if her husband hath utterly made them void on the day he heard them; then whatsoever proceeded out of her lips concerning her vows, or concerning the bond of her soul, shall not stand: her husband hath made them void; and the LORD shall forgive her. Every vow, and every binding oath to afflict the soul, her husband may establish it, or her husband may make it void. But if her husband altogether hold his peace at her from day to day; then he establisheth all her vows, or all her bonds, which are upon her: he confirmeth them, because he held his peace at her in the day that he heard them. But if he shall any ways make them void after that he hath heard them; then he shall bear her iniquity. These are the statutes, which the LORD commanded Moses, between a man and his wife, between the father and his daughter, being yet in her youth in her father's house.

As with many other laws ... One must be careful to discern well.


CHRISTIAN VOWS WARNING
CHRISTIAN OATH DANGER

Jesus expanded on the Vow and Oath laws ...

Matthew 5:33-37
Again, 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:
BUT I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne: Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King. Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black. But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.

Therefore ... Jesusshows us thatforswearing or promising to perform a VOW ahead of timeand adding an OATH such as swearing (Vowing) by Heaven or God's Throne or anything else is wrong.

One shouldconcern themselves with making vows by an oath ...

James echoed the Words of Jesus.

James 5:12
But above all things, my brethren,
swear not
, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation.

So ... We see that making vows and oaths is SERIOUS business.

Allow me to share one more story ...

Judges 11:30-31
And Jephthah vowed a vow unto the LORD, and said, If thou shalt without fail deliver the children of Ammon into mine hands, Then it shall be, that whatsoever cometh forth of the doors of my house to meet me, when I return in peace from the children of Ammon, shall surely be the LORD's, and I will offer it up for a burnt offering ...

WITHOUT BEING ASKED TO BY GOD ... Jephthah swore that if God would help him win a war, that he would sacrifice whatever entered his house, probably thinking one of his sheep or cattle would. Well, they did win the war Jephthah spoke of and then ... He went home.

Letís find out what entered his home.

Judges 11:34-35
And Jephthah came to Mizpeh unto his house, and, behold, his daughter came out to meet him with timbrels and with dances: and she was his only child; beside her he had neither son nor daughter. And it came to pass, when he saw her, that he rent his clothes, and said, Alas, my daughter! thou hast brought me very low, and thou art one of them that trouble me: for I have OPENED MY MOUTH unto the LORD, and I cannot go back.

When he got home, his DAUGHTER entered that door and he was obligated to keep his vow. He kept his vow but you know he learned a VERY important lesson ...

James 5:12
But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation.
