The VOW of the Lord
What is the vow of the Lord? The vow of the Lord is Jesus Christ. The oath is Christ, the word is Christ and the voice is Christ.
What is a vow? Word Net : An earnest promise to perform a specified act or behave in a certain manner... (See Here)
Self Confidence: The Oath
In the world people make promises to others and themselves to establish a pattern of self confidence to bring glory and honor to their name (possessions and flattery). They want people to be able to count on them and they feel that they can deliver based upon their skills. This pattern of confidence is developed over a period of time.
People are known to keep their vows and also break them. However no matter how big or small the vow, it is an unwise thing to do because we are never fully in control of the outcome (Matthew 5:36). Setting standards for our self, is self righteousness which produces a boast and setting expectations in others to meet the needs of the soul, is idolatry.
People want to have guarantees. They want to be able to trust in something that will not fail them because man needs something to hope in; withier it is himself or in others. This provides a sense of peace and security for us. When this pattern of confidence becomes stable through experience it becomes the oath of the individual, empowered by their own will and seducing spirits. This oath then becomes the convictions that we live by setting a pattern for our feet in a loop of sin and death.
The record is the oath that we follow that is setting a path for our feet. The record is the knowledge that we have accumulated from our life experience that we continue to resource for glory and honor (as a CD only plays what is recorded on it, so also we resource our experience of life to build). This is also called the principle. With the principle we control, dominate and destroy one another because this record puts our confidence in our self and not in God (sin and death).
The voice is the system that is empowering our record to produce fruit (confidence). We can observe the voice of the world promoting these things: hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife etc. There are only two kingdoms: light and darkness. If we are joined to the one, we are separated from the other. Mankind is born into the Kingdome of darkness, so he ignorantly follows the path of sin and death. The voice of the world is his counselor which leads to the grave (death)
The Vow of the Lord
The Kingdome of darkness mirrors the pattern of the Kingdome of light because everything was created by the oath of God. We said earlier that it was unwise to make an oath or vow because we are not fully in control of the outcome and because of what the principle produces.
The difference between the oath of God and the oath of man, is that the oath of God endures forever. We know that God makes promises but he is the only one that has the power to fulfill and keep them depending on our faith (Numbers 14:34). God empowers His own record to produce the likeness of the same: love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance.
Jesus Christ is the Word of God and was sent into the world to reconcile man back to Himself (God the Father). He was sent into the world to set a pattern for our faith, so that we could return to the bosom of the father. This is our origin and destiny (B=B) and Gods vow to us. I will take you home.
Just as the voice of the world empowers the record of man in these things (hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife etc) to produce a boast; so also the father empowers the knowledge of Jesus Christ to give expression to His fruits (love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness etc) which produces humility.
God gives this new experience of Himself for conversion by faith. It is this voice that natures us to walk the path of faith called the grace of God. We start with this one seed that grows into a tree.

Grace communicates, reveals, illuminates, enlightens and awakens the soul to Jesus Christ to perpetuate that revelation in a loop of increase and life unto life in the same way darkness destroys the soul in a pattern of sin unto death. Same cycle, different Kingdome. Same cycle, different power. Same cycle, different inspiration, different temperament, different product, different oath, different record, different voice.
“For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself,” (Hebrews 6:13)
“God’s vow to us is Christ, showing Himself strong and faithful on behalf of those that love Him. For in Him there is no lie” (Titus 1:2)
