The Name of the Lord
The name of the Lord is a strong tower, but not to those who demean it.
Many refer to God in different ways: Father, God, Lord, Abba, etc.
Then use His name in vain.
Vain means : destitute of force or effect; empty words.
Oh my God!
It may seem harmless, but every idle word will be accounted for, and using God’s name in vain is one of the original ten commandments.
He didn’t write it in stone to be ignored, and He won’t ignore it when you stand before Him.
Using God’s name in vain may seem harmless in this life; but ultimately, there will be a dire price to pay.
Proverbs 18:10 The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.
Exodus 20:7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
Matthew 12:36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
Matthew 12:37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
