Keep Thy Vows Which Thou Hast Promised!

Part 10 forgotten sins

We have duties to perform when we take any covenant. If we do not perform our vows, we sin, and do not the truth. Are you married? What are your duties to your husband/wife? Are you member of a church body? Are you upholding what you promised you would, and/or what you should? We need to examine every aspect of our lives and conform them in all ways to Christ’s! He has a covenant with us, He hasn’t and never will  break!

1. Covenantbreaking: Violating  or  failing to keep a mutual agreement between two or more persons to do or refrain from doing certain act.

“Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:” Romans 1:29-31


Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;” 2 Timothy 3:4


“When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed. Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay. Suffer 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? For in the multitude of dreams and many words there are also divers vanities: but fear thou God.” Ecclesiastes 5:4-7


“In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the LORD. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not.” Psalm 15:4

Modern divorces, sexual depriving,  and marital dysfunction are all plain acts of breaking the marriage covenant. This sin has added implications for those who
made more detailed marriage covenants, but it impacts us all. For if we do not love our spouse with the love covenanted, then we are breakers of it. What about  a  church covenant? Covenants do not need a written document, especially among Christians. We have actual or implied covenants in jobs, loans, families, partnerships, etc., etc.

2. Defraud: Defrauding in this context is denying, resisting, or neglecting the sexual needs of your spouse. Since the man's sexual drive is usually greater than the woman’s, she must be conscious daily of this fact. No woman can understand a married man’s pain for a lack of sex in his marriage. A woman should suspect it, even if he does not complain to her. She was made for him, so she better get busy before meeting the Man Christ Jesus on the day of judgment. And men must also remember that normal and healthy women need and want it often; and they are capable of much more than the man due to little or no refraction time between orgasms, so the text works both ways equally well. If God made the woman capable of more, a good husband will act accordingly.

“Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman. Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband. Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband. The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife. Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.” 1 Corinthians 7:1-5


“If he take him another wife; her food, her raiment, and her duty of marriage, shall he not diminish.” Exodus 21:10


“Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love.” Proverbs 5:19


“His left hand is under my head, and his right hand doth embrace me. I charge you, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, by the roes, and by the hinds of the field, that ye stir not up, nor awake my love, till he please.” Song of Soloman 2:6-7


“His left hand should be under my head, and his right hand should embrace me. I charge you, O daughters of Jerusalem, that ye stir not up, nor awake my love, until he please.” Song of Soloman 8:3-4

I am not married, but it is good to be prepared for it! So, all should take heed to this subject of God’s Word! This world is filled with effeminate, ungodly, men and prudish, odious, women. Take heed against such sins and fulfill your duties found in God’s Word both in marriage and your church etc.

  1. It is far better to never make a covenant, than to make one and break it. Our vows to our "husband to be" taken on our wedding day before God and man are sacred and should not be taken lightly. We are vowing to love, honor, obey, take care of in sickness & in health. Which incompasses all aspects of our married lives ~ additional or man made covenants should be entered into very carefully, very prayerfully or not at all. I think any vows entered into in addition to the wedding vows shouldn't be entered into ~ there are just too many variables to contend with and any that are out of our control would be seen as breaking our covenant. To many, in the world today, make & break their vows/covenants because of convenience or other excuses.

  4. Good Morning! My name is Teresa and I found your blog from my son's college site. (I always follow up on who he talks to, even now.);-) You have a lovely site, and I've already taken the priviledge of adding Rapunzel's Resources to my blog: jewels1959.blogspot.com. I appreciate your zeal for the Lord and hope you stop by and visit sometime. God's blessings!

  5. Thank you very much Mrs. Miller! I went to your blog and to your church's website, and was surprised to see that you believe that the KJV is the Word of God in English! It is very rare to find others, who believe that! Thank you for "stopping by" my blog. May God get all the glory! May the Lord give us all more zeal and reveal to us more truth as we seek to serve Him daily! Thank you for your comment!

  6. P.s. I think it is wonderful that you care for your son in that way! We live in a wicked world where the devil walks about seeking whom he may devour! Thanks again!

  7. Ephesians 4:1-6
    1I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,
    2With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;
    3Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.4There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
    5One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
    6One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. I can not wait to be a member of the church of St.Louis if the Lord wills it! I am ready to make a covenant before God and men that shows I take the responsibility's of church membership serious. To many people say they are part of a church but do not hold up any of their "end of the deal". And with out the covenant there is no form of punishment when someone is going against the word of God. 1 Corinthians 5:6-8 6 Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? 7Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: 8Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. Praise God!
