STUDIES IN HEBREWS
JESUS IS EQUAL WITH GOD, HE LOWERED HIMSELF FOR THE SUFFERING
OF DEATH TO PAY FOR THE SINS OF ALL WHO BELIEVE IN HIM: Phl 2:6 Who, being in the
form of God, thought it not robbery to
be equal with God:
Heb 2:9 But we
see Jesus, who was made a
little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with
glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should
taste death for every man.
1Pe 5:8 Be
sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the
devil, as a roaring lion, walketh
about, seeking whom he may devour: 9 Whom resist stedfast in the
faith, knowing that the same afflictions are
accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
10 But the God of
all grace, who hath
called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after
that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.
Do not be afraid of men nor devil: Luk 12:5 But I
will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which
after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I
say unto you, Fear him.
2Ti 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a
sound mind. We reverence God with a holy fear not that he would destroy us, but that in all His great power
He is also great in mercy to all who believe in Him.
Say it with me brethren, Lord Jesus, we reverence you with a
holy fear, you are our Eternal Saviour, Sovereign Lord, Omnipotent potentate; to
you be the Dominion, Honor, Glory, Worship and Praise, for you have washed us
in your sinless blood having all power and authority, unbeatable, unconquerable,
undefeatable and there be not the hand that can pluck us from you.
Holy people, stand in the strength of the Lord against the
adversaries of God for:
1Jo 4:4 Ye are of God, little
children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the
Brothers and sisters, praise God the Father for His mercy who
sent His Son Lord Jesus Christ who paid an extremely high price for our sins
out of love for all who believe and obey Him. Had Jesus not chosen to go to the
cross, we had all been destroyed even as Sodom and Gomorrha: Rom 9:29. In light of this it is GROSS ERROR/IGNORANCE to see the death of Lord Jesus Christ as an exchange, substitution or taking our place on the cross. The false teaching of Christ's death as substitutionary came from the false teacher and defrocked catholic monk Martin Luther who hated Jews and preached that every Jew who rejected the gospel should be killed.
God's word fully informs us fully that only the sinless Man/God Jesus Christ was the sole sacrifice acceptable to God. Jesus willingly went to the cross to PAY for
the redemption of all who believe and obey Him.
Again, holy people, Jesus has free will the same God gave to all mankind, had Jesus chose not to go to the cross God would have accepted that and visited His wrath on a sinful world as He did on Sodom and Gomorrha, for without Jesus Christ none other could save mankind from the wrath of God and His hatred of sin.
Dearly beloved it sickens me whenever I hear the lies that God needed us because we are so precious and special, minimizing His mercy thereby. The plain truth is that God the Father needs nothing and nobody, but in His great mercy sent God His only Son Jesus Christ into the trash bin that men have made of earth to save scumbags all, who didn't love Him, and were His enemies, when He could have easily just wiped us all out and started anew.
See, mere man in his pride always looks for ways to make salvation as some how derived from something being about the goodness or worthiness of man. It just isn't so, God found none worthy ALL men sinned ALL men and women too fell short of the glory of God.
Let us, dearly beloveds, keep in remembrance the love, mercy, and goodness of our Lord and Saviour Jesus who paid in full for the sins of the world although we were His worthless enemies totally unworthy of Him and dead in our sins. Again and again Christ PAID IN FULL FOR OUR SINS, NO MERE EXCHANGE/SUBSTITUTION.
All believers, brethren, we know experience growth, all grow,
however not all grow at the same rate. Christians should not be surprised that
tares planted by the devil will arise among the wheat to thwart their growth.
There is no need to look for the tares they will most certainly come and all
their evil attempts to stop the growth of God’s people will always be in vain. God
shall punish His adversaries with their father the devil in everlasting torment
in the lake of fire: Rev 20:10; Psa 21:8; Mat 3:10; Mat 15:13-14.
1Jo 5:18 We
know that whosoever is
born of God sinneth not; but he that is
begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.
Many comprehend, apprehend, the above verse. However, there are some who accept that Jesus sacrificed Himself and died bodily on the cross, but THEY STUMBLE AT HIS SHED SINLESS BLOOD, and turn back to the Law of Moses, or worse yet misinterpret 1 John 1:9 to disregard the Atoning body AND BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST.
Praise and thanks to you Lord Jesus God of All Power, the
manna and true spiritual bread of heaven sent down from heaven from God the
Father Almighty. All who eat of this bread shall grow in grace.
Standing on the eternal truth of Salvation:
UN-earnable: When some people die, others may say that they know the person "earned" their wings, because they were a good person, or did a lot of good deeds. I've rarely heard people say that they know the person who died believed in Jesus so they have assurance that the person is in heaven.
The Bible tells the eternal truth, no good deeds or works of mere men or women can earn anyone a place in heaven. We can't earn salvation, because we came from a long line of preachers, grew up in a Christian home, attended a church, celebrated Christmas, but never believed in Jesus Christ.
UN-buyable: All the gold, silver, and so called precious treasures of the universe are mere worthless baubles and trinkets in the sight of God the Father: We know that if God needed anything He would not have to ask anyone seeing all the gold, silver, and treasures of the universe He created and it belongs to Him.
UN-Repayable, God owns every soul and everything in the universe, so clearly we have nothing of our own to repay Him with. Again dearly beloveds, we know that salvation is the free gift of God.
Christmas is a time of giving presents one to another. Imagine how insulted one would feel towards any who kept coming to our doors stubbornly insisting on paying us back for the gifts we gave them, although given many assurances that no repayment for our gifts nor any gift is ever required. Jesus frankly tells us in His word His gift of salvation to all who believe ia absolutely free. There will be permanent eternal punishment as a consequence for those who unrepentantly falsely teach that people have to pay for the free gift of salvation.
This right here: UN-DOABLE. ONCE DONE NONE CAN UNDO IT. Those who fully comprehend, apprehend the complete atoning work of the sinless sacrifice of Christ's body AND BLOOD know that there is neither hand of man nor devil that can ever pluck us from God in any way or manner whatsoever.
Jhn 10:28 And
I give unto them eternal life; and they
shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out
of my hand.
The air is electric, many slow growers are and will be
catapulted into maturity as they lay hold on God’s word and obey it. Many
already mature are and will be confirmed in the truth and refined in their
understanding of the knowledge of God and increase in their ability to share it
with those in different stages of growth to aid them in moving forward to maturity, for this
is the will and the power of God that His people should know Him and understand
We are never in competition in declaring God's word, but in cooperation. Where the Bible speaks we are commanded to speak the same things that the Bible speaks, regardless of those who do not wish for us to speak it. Holy people this present world likes a "nice" God with a false, soft, weak, permissive Jesus who understands we are just poor sinners who need pity and acceptance because we can't do any better.
However we know the true God the Father is holy, uncompromising in His hatred of all sin. We know that God the Son Jesus Christ, is not weak, but forever resurrected in power who sets all free from the bondage of sin.
Brothers and sisters, we know Jesus gives us power and authority to overcome those sinful thoughts, behaviors and patterns of sins we have over time, with the help of the body general, a renewed conscience, and the ever indwelling of the Holy Spirit, with God the Son Jesus Christ and God the Father.
We are responsible and accountable to Him, seeing He has given us everything we need to do so.
By responsible and accountable, holy people, means for what we do with our time talents and treasure that God gives to us. Brothers and sisters we are not addressing our eternal salvation or inheritance nobody works for these they are given freely by our precious King and Lord Jesus Christ. However we will gain or lose rewards for how well or how poorly we handled the time, talents and treasure God gives to us as well as the ability to carry them out as we choose out of love for Him. Some of us will get rewards and some will get a spanking, but we all will keep our great salvation and wonderful inheritance from God.
Jesus frankly tells His holy family: John 14:15 If ye love me keep my commandments. Jesus also left us the supreme example of obedience in His obedience to His Father God, by choice out of love. Jesus is not making a polite request of us as though we have options/excuses. or can freely disregard His commandments as a way of life.
Those who whine, disobey and distrust Him unrepentantly never loved Him in the first place. However all who truly love Jesus trust in Him knowing He never asks anything of us that He has not empowered us to do: 1 John 5:3.
Holy people, find laid out chapter eight of Hebrews to go
over as the Lord leads you, ministers to you, and instructs you personally in
His word. After this we will go on to the study of it. I love you brothers and
sisters, you are in my thoughts and prayers early and often, pray for me,
A Better Ministry
Heb 8:1 Now of the
things which we have spoken this is the sum: We
have such an high priest, who is set on the right
hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens;
The above is a profound declaration. It sums up everything about Jesus Christ. He is seated by God the Father on an equal throne. God our Father has tested, tried and proven that His only biological Son in whose veins the blood of God the Father's flowed, not of Mary's, showing God's Son Jesus christ is equal with God the Father, to receive the same worship with the Father, whose commands are to be obeyed the same as God the Father, and whom the Father has established as the the sole saviour and High Priest alone through whom all who believe can come to God the Father. Do not look to denominations, organizations, institutions, ideas, philosophies, concepts of mere men all who pervert the gospel to align with their blasphemy all you will find there is bondage to men, never salvation.
Martin Luther the defrocked monk, hater of Jews who preached they should be murdered is no reformer of Christianity. Jesus Christ is the only and true reformer who has brought in the eternal reformation.
Heb 8:2 A minister of
the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the
Lord pitched, and not man.
Brothers and sisters, we know the only way Lord Jesus could enter into the true sanctuary was that He had, no God the Father commanded that Jesus had to come with blood, fresh blood not corrupted by decay. We know when Jesus died He never decayed in any manner whatsoever: Acts 13: 37. Neither did the sinless blood of Jesus see corruption, but forever retains its blessed eternal power to wash all who believe in Lord Jesus Christ from all their sins, past, present, future. Warning to those who deny the importance of the shed blood of Christ WITHOUT THE SHEDDING OF BLOOD THERE IS NO FORGIVENESS OF ANY SINS FOREVER.
The resurrected Christ upbraided His disciples for not believing in Him: but thanks be to God He opened up their understanding that they might understand the scriptures: Luk 24:45
Brethren I'm afraid that among the multitudes of believers there are some who don't believe ALL that the scriptures has eternally declared of God the Son Jesus Christ, not because of ignorance although there are some, but through hardness of heart and unbelief, even in the face of having all the scriptures now available today.
It is the highest form of blasphemy to say the blood of Jesus rotted away and is of no value as John McAuther teaches, among other such blasphemers. Yes I have confronted him, love him, and am among many others who have confronted him and are praying that he and all others like Him would repent of this great evil.
Heb 8:3 For every high
ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices: wherefore it
is of necessity that this
man have somewhat also to offer.
Heb 8:4 For if he
were on earth, he should not be a
priest, seeing that there are priests that
offer gifts according to the law:
Heb 8:5 Who serve unto
the example and shadow of heavenly
things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was
about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith
he, that thou make all things according to the
pattern shewed to thee in the mount.
Heb 8:6 But now hath
he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how
much also he is the mediator of a
better covenant, which was established upon better promises.
(Jer 31:31–34 )
Heb 8:7 For if that first covenant had
been faultless, then should no place have been
sought for the second.
Heb 8:8 For finding fault with
them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the
Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the
house of Israel and with the house of Judah:
Heb 8:9 Not according
to the covenant that I made
with their fathers in the day when I
took them by the hand to lead them out of the
land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and
I regarded them not, saith the Lord.
Heb 8:10 For this is the
covenant that I will make with the house of
Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will
put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I
will be to them a God, and they shall
be to me a people:
Heb 8:11And they
shall not teach every
man his neighbour, and every
man his brother, saying, Know the
Lord: for all shall know me, from the
least to the greatest.
Heb 8:12 For I
will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will
I remember no more.
Heb 8:13 In that
he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that
which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to
