Fulfill & Terminate All Of Your Obligations

Let all workers who [unfortunately] lie under the โ€˜yokeโ€™ [of any legally binding obligation] count their masters [creditors / employers / husbands] worthy of complete honor [payback], so that no [one] ever blasphemes the Name of [YHVH] the Eloah and His instructions.

Agreements (Obligation Of Contract) Timeline

Note: This applies to anyone who has a legal obligation to complete a period of service, or honor a contract.
DON'T SIGN CONTRACTS! But once you have an agreement, don't ever say that you don't have to pay your debts or complete your agreements because you were โ€˜born againโ€™ and are a โ€˜new creature.โ€™ Sometimes a spouse get โ€˜born againโ€™ and leaves their spouse on such fraudulent โ€˜grounds.โ€™ Come on, grow up people!

However, a soldier who realizes that killing people in the military is evil should get discharged rather than continue to murder in the name of the war state.
The soldier who accepts Christ must persevere in seeking a discharge on the grounds that he is subject to a higher power who forbids killing.
Christians are unfit for combat service.

Get out of worldly obligations (such as employment) in the quickest, most amicable and honorable way you can, so that you can serve YHVH.
