“The utterance of a promise is a binding movement of the tongue.
The utterance of a promise cannot be reassigned.
The utterance of a promise commits the soul and the spirit to observe the body.
The utterance of a promise marks certainty of intent,
certainty of action,
certainty of redemption of the vowing of the tongue.
The utterance of a promise impacts on hearing ears,
impacts on seeing eyes,
has no impact when reiterated to the unintended.
The utterance of a promise requires wisdom from the utterer,
requires wisdom in its framing,
requires wisdom in its issuance.
The utterance of a promise is as a covenant of law.
The utterance of a promise is not to be repealed.
The utterance of a promise has truth as its foundation,
has truth as its support,
has truth displayed upon redemption.
Man’s utterance of a promise consigns the future to the present,
consigns the body to the tongue,
consigns a bounded premise to the life of man.
Man’s utterance of a promise is limited by time,
cannot impale eternity,
proceeds beyond mortality only in a will.
Man’s utterance of a promise tests the character of man.
Man’s utterance of a promise is an eternal record –
can affect a destiny –
can repulse the angels if it becomes a lie that seals a link.
Man’s broken promises form a chain of heavy links around his neck –
a necklace of shame upon his chest with each link thereof inscribed ‘The Truth is not within him’ –
a necklace that bears him downwards into darkness.
Man’s utterance of a promise stands as it is uttered,
stands as it proclaims,
stands as it is qualified,
stands into the future,
stands open to attack by the foe of man.
If man’s utterance of a promise should fall upon the earth,
fails to be redeemed when due,
is negated by denial,
is held in low esteem,
is conveniently forgotten,
is subjected to procrastination,
is subjected to excuse:
then thereby know the attacks of the enemy of man upon the soul of man –
the attacks that would pre-empt the gaining of his glory in the presence of the saints.
Man’s utterance of a promise is mortally dependant for its redemption upon the future will of God.
Let he who has wisdom,
Let he who has need,
Let he who has insight,
