Dear reader, some people make promises to God, and afterwards completely forget what came out of their mouths.
Listen to what the written word of God says:
“When a man makes a vow to the Lord,
or takes an oath to obligate himself by a pledge,
he must not break his word
but must do everything he said.“
A promise made when you are in trouble.
If you are in trouble, and you promise to do something for God if he keeps you out of that trouble, but afterwards you forget about this promise, then you may never cross over to heaven.
Repent now and fulfill the promise you made to God (see Psalm 50:14).
A pledge to serve God.
If at one stage of your life you promised to serve God, but later you completely forgot about that promise, then you have made for yourself a great barrier that will prevent you from entering heaven.
A financial contribution to God’s Kingdom.
If at one stage of your life you pledged to contribute financially towards an activity in God’s Kingdom, but later you completely forgot about that promise, then you have created a chasm between you and the gates of heaven ( see Deuteronomy 23:21-23) .
A promise to help a needy person.
A desperate and needy person represents Jesus Christ (see Matthew 25:36-40).
If you promised to help a poor person, a sick person, a hungry person, a prisoner, a widow, or an orphan, but later your completely forgot about your promise, then you may have closed your entry into heaven.
A promise to thank God.
If you promised to thank God before a great assembly because of what he has done for you, but you later forgot about this promise, then you have closed your entry into heaven.
A marital vow.
If you promised God to love your wife in good health as in sickness; in wealth as in poverty, in joy as in sorrow; but you later abandoned her for reasons other than sexual immorality, then you may have closed your entry into heaven.
Repent now and go back to her. Buy her a great gift, like a new car, apologize and continue to live happily with her.
