Commitment


When someone asked me to cover the subject of "Commitment" I thought that God would have me talking about His prophetic vision for our lives or setting goals to live our lives with intention. That's not what happened. After I asked God how He wanted me to cover the topic, He gave me a download that surprised me. If you told me six months ago that I would be talking in-depth about Revelations in a Faith Training video, I would have said you have got to be joking. Although I felt overwhelmed to cover this topic in this manner, God guided me through it. I'm glad. I learned a lot in the process. I hope that you will too.


Commitment


The first step in understanding commitment is understanding the ancient Hebrew marriage and celebration. It was made up of 4 parts:

  1. Contract

  2. Payment

  3. Consummation

  4. Feast


Part 1: The Contract

Part 2: The Payment, The Consummation, & The Feast
