An Oath of Truth
The implied understanding of taking an oath is to tell the truth but in fact it is a seal of insurance that the Truth will be built upon the standard of God’s Truth. The historical background of swearing was to persuade the witness that what was said would be irrevocable and inerrant by attesting to something greater than oneself. We are committed as Disciples of Christ to let our yes mean yes and our no to mean without a seal that most times will not be admissible or established in the sight of God. Our lathes should be automatic by the virtue of our relationship with and with authentic embrace to Jesus Christ. Use the objective of swearing only when require and not in suggestive illusion of what should be truth.
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.
1 John 3:4
Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.
Kadosh (The Holy One, Isaiah 40:25); when we bow our heads or bend our knees, we thank you for admission to the court of the throne while the dew is still on the roses. We give praise for the voice We hear falling on our ears the Son of God discloses. We declare and decree blessings upon those who find comfort in these words - And He walks with me, And He talks with me, And He tells me I am His own, And the joy we share as we tarry there, None other has ever known, so that our Word, the voice of Christ is not in vain. Now, for the sake of the Kingdom and for the Glory of God, we petition, with an anointing in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, Amen.
