The Power of God ’ s Oath

Hallel Schell

God made an oath . He swore a solemn promise . He swore it upon the highest , greatest , most powerful , glory filled thing He could come up with — Himself !
“ Now when God made His promise to Abraham — since He could swear by no one greater , He swore by Himself , saying , ‘ Surely , I will bless you , and surely I will multiply you .’ And so , after waiting patiently , Abraham reached the promise . For people swear by someone greater ; and the oath , as confirmation , is an end to all their disputing . In the same way God , determined to point out more clearly to the heirs of the promise the unchanging nature of His purpose , guaranteed it with an oath . So , by two unchangeable things , in which it is impossible for God to lie , we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to take hold of the hope set before us . We have this hope as an anchor of the soul , both firm and steady — a hope that enters the inner place behind the curtain . Yeshua has entered there as a forerunner on our behalf , having become Kohen Gadol ‘ forever , according to the order of Melechizedek .’” Hebrews 6:13-20 ( TLV )
