          Beloveds, we must clear up the lie that when the Lord told Joshua he would have good success through obeying the Law, that this was meant for Christians today. The Lord told this to Joshua that in obeying the Old Covenant of the Law God would give him success in conquering certain lands and taking these lands for the nation of Israel: Joshua 1: 5 There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. 6 Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them.
          
          
          
          Also in keeping the Old Covenant of the Law, (which is all they had from God), he would not face the wrath of God and die as Aaron and Moses did for their disobedience to God in not keeping the Old Covenant of the Law: Num. 27: 12 And the LORD said unto Moses, Get thee up into this mount Abarim, and see the land which I have given unto the children of Israel. 13 And when thou hast seen it, thou also shalt be gathered unto thy people, as Aaron thy brother was gathered. 14 For ye rebelled against my commandment in the desert of Zin, in the strife of the congregation, to sanctify me at the water before their eyes: that is the water of Meribah in Kadesh in the wilderness of Zin.
          
          Moses never preached that the Old Covenant of the Law would make anyone permanently righteous in the sight of God. Here is the truth, preached by our Saviour Jesus Christ: Jhn 5:46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.
          
           Luk 24:44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.

          Gal 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, THEN CHRIST IS DEAD IN VAIN.
          
          See Galatians 3, which explains God’s purposes for the Law; and how Jesus Christ has delivered us from it for all time. Feel free to study on your own the numerous verses that fully declare that Jesus Christ is the eternal Saviour and final sole source of eternal salvation for all time for all who believe in Him. See John 14:6.

          

          Anyone willfully claiming salvation based on keeping the Old Covenant of the Law and/ or combining it with the New Covenant of Jesus Christ, or anything else is not considered a Christian according to the Bible.

          
          Gal 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, THEN CHRIST IS DEAD IN VAIN.

          
          Gal 3:10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the CURSE: for it is written, CURSED is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. 11 But that NO MAN is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.

          1Ti. 1:5 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:6 From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;
          7 Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.

          1Ti 1:9 Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; 11 According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.

          John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

    Heb 6: God's Promise of salvation is Certain

    13For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself, 14Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee. 15And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise. 16For men verily swear by the greater: and an oath for confirmation is to them an end of all strife. 17Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: 18That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: 19Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; 20Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

     False teachers try to promote Moses and the Law, Job, Peter, Paul and even some of the prophets above and over Jesus Christ, Saviour, Mediator, High Priest and Head of the church, His body.

     

    These holy men will rise up in the judgement before God and accuse these false teachers who lie on them falsely teaching that they are the source of salvation. The truth is that every last one of these holy men, all of them preached and pointed to Jesus Christ as God’s only appointed eternal Saviour, in full agreement with the absolute will and purpose of God.

    We end this chapter here, Brothers and sisters, where God boldly absolutely eternally positions and defends His Son Jesus Christ as His sole appointed Saviour for all men. Thereby giving absolute assurances to all the heirs of Abraham, all who believe with this same faith as he, that God will bless and receive them forever, world without end, Amen. 

    Gen 22:18 - And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.

    Gal 3:16 - Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.

     

    God boldly, eternally declares here that He has appointed Jesus Christ, His Son alone as the only eternal high priest forever, after the order of Melchisedec.

     

    The nature of the blessings of the new eternal high priest Jesus Christ: Heb 1: 3Blessed  be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

     

    The nature of the power of the new eternal high priest Jesus Christ: 

     

     Jhn 17:2 - As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.

     

    1Co 2:5 - That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

     

    Eph 1:21 - Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come

     

    Eph 6:10 - Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

     

    Col 2:10 - And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:

     

    1Pe 1:5 - Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

     

     2Pe 1:3 - According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:


      

    Blessed are all who turn to Jesus Christ with the same faith as Abraham without works to receive the blessings of remission of all sins through the eternal seed and only Saviour Jesus Christ.

    Holy people we must bring forth the whole counsel of God:

    Gal 1:8 - But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

     Gal 1:9 - As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

    JOURNEY IN HEBREWS

    Heb 6:9But, beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that accompany salvation, though we thus speak. 10For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister. 11And we desire that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end: 12That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

    Brothers and sisters, God expects better things of the Christian, (consistent good fruit, faith, truth, love) which are evidence of the salvation we claim to have. God can expect these better things of us because by grace alone, through faith (not of ourselfes) in His Son Jesus Christ we have fully received everything we need to fulfill the will of the Father.

     

    Therefore, we can serve God and one another in the Spirit of the law of grace, out of love and trust in God and not out of fear of punishment which is the spirit of the Law of death and punishment and the curse. Our walk is not passive, but one of actively appropriating our God given power and strength, while faithfully putting it to use in practice. We never need worry because some might not appreciate our good works, the only relevant thing is that our Lord is always watching all the time and will never forget what we do out of love for the saints (G40 hagios) out of love and trust in Him.

     

      Rather than being slothful followers of Jesus Christ, instead we must be faithful and consistent in obeying the foundational truth of the principles of the doctrine of Jesus Christ.

    In our regeneration we all become new spiritual creations, which means that now we need the spiritual food of the Word of God in order to know Him and grow in following Him.

     Jhn 6:53 - Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.

    Jesus was not referring to cannibalism or drinking His blood. We know the Bible forbids the drinking of blood, eating the flesh of people. Just as the natural man needs food in order to survive, all born again Christians made spiritually alive need spiritual food, which is the Word of God:  

    Jhn 6:63 - It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

    Rom 8:2 - For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

    1Co 2:12 - Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.

    2Co 3:17 - Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 

    Rom 7:6 - But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter. The oldness of the letter is the Law of condemnation, death, and the curse.

    2Co 3:6 - Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

    The warning here is that the only food that will feed the Christian is the words of  Jesus Christ, ordained by God the Father.

    JOURNEY IN HEBREWS

    Heb 6: 4For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, 5And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, 6If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame. 7For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God: 8But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned.

    The unlearned are terrified at the above passages, which are often misinterpreted to apply to the true born- again Christian. This mainly due to a lack of Bible study and or teaching in the absolute doctrine of Jesus christ. However, the righteous when taught the truth will believe it but the wicked never will. Salvation is eternal for all who believe and obey Jesus Christ. If eternal salvation were not true (we know it is true,), it would mean that, God forbid, but that God lied which is impossible.

    False teachers use these verses to vilify and slander the absolute eternal, explicit, exhaustive, inerrant truth of the word of God with its testimony of eternal truth love and life for all who believe on and in the Son of God the true eternal Saviour Jesus Christ.

    Holy people, because we know it is absolutely impossible for God to lie we know the above passages regarding the impossibility of renewing or bringing people back to Christ who were once seemingly saved, but afterwards turned away from him is absolutely not speaking of believers, but unrepentant unbelievers.

     

    The Bible gives too many examples of false conversion to be posted here, feel free to study this further on your own: Luk 8:13; Mat 13:19-22;  Mat 13:37-43; 1Jo 2:19; 1Ti 4:1;  Rev 9:20. The doctrine of Jesus Christ sets the absolute standard for whom God considers absolutely belongs to Him and whom He absolutely does not consider belongs to Him for all time. There is never a mix of the two and there is no doctrine of backsliding in the new covenant. The doctrine of  Christian backsliding is heresy: Mat 7:18 - A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

     Luk 6:43 - For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

    1Pe 1:23 - Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

     

    Heb 11:6 - But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

    1Jo 3:6 - Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.

     

    1 Jhn 5:18We 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. 19And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. 20And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.

      Pe 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead

     1Pe 1:4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, 1Pe 1:5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

    1Pe 1:6 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: When the true Christian goes through trials He or she is joyous and remains faithful. The false Christian is joyless, and offended at God under trial and falls away in complaining and unbelief permanently. The false convert never believed in the first place.

    JOURNEY IN HEBREWS

     

    Heb 6:1 - Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, 2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. 3 And this will we do, if God permit.

     

     

    We are commanded by God, brothers and sisters, to be absolutely, faithfully, steadfastly grounded in the principles of the doctrine of Jesus Christ, which He has listed. By leaving them it is meant that we no longer stumble around trying to understand them but have the full absolute grasp of them so that we can serve and obey God in love and truth in them and through them. We can defend them, as well to all comers.

     

     

    Everyone desiring to go on to perfection does not have to wonder how to do it, as though it is a mystery. The Bible is easy to understand, because that’s what God wants for all who believe in and obey His only begotten Son whom He has appointed as the only eternal saviour. Jhn 17:20 - Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; Jhn 14:1 - Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

     

    God gives us His standard for those desiring to go on to perfection, all must be absolutely, faithful and steadfast, in knowing, understanding, believing and obeying the principles of the doctrine of Jesus Christ, as laid out in scripture and final, fixed and complete in the new covenant. His check list-really is as much a measuring stick to see where we are in our journey, as well as the measure that shows we are indeed going on to perfection. This is the journey, holy people, He sends us on and helps us greatly along the way to attain the perfection He desires for us all, in being absolutely rooted unmovable in the principles of the doctrine of Jesus Christ.

     

    All know when they are going on to perfection in the principles of the doctrine of Jesus Christ, because they can absolutely, faithfully, steadfastly believe, agree, and obey God according to His word without doubt or wavering grounded in the foundational truths of the Bible and is therefore fully able to go on towards perfection.

     

     

    However, those still not grounded in the foundational principles of the eternal truths of the doctrine of Jesus Christ are commanded to continue on through faith, study, practice, and trust until they are fully and absolutely grounded in the foundational truths of the Bible. There is absolutely no options or plan B’s for anyone claiming to be a Christian.  There is only one correct interpretation of the Bible according to the Bible.

     

     

     

    THOSE GOING ON TO PERFECTION ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE:

    1. The principles of the doctrine of Jesus Christ as laid out in scripture and final in His New covenant, rooted in absolute love and truth. Yes, we absolutely believe and agree steadfastly in the faith without doubt and wavering, that there is only ONE correct interpretation of the bible, Jesus Christ alone is God’s only absolute, inerrant appointed Mediator, High Priest and Saviour and the sole source of salvation for all who believe and obey him. Yes, we absolutely believe and agree faithfully and steadfast that Jesus Christ is fully man without ever ceasing to be God the Son. Yes, we believe and agree absolutely in faith without wavering, that Jesus Christ has always existed in one eternal God, in three distinct persons, inseparably, bound together in truth and love: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Yes, we absolutely steadfastly and faithfully believe all that He has done in heaven and on earth, that He resides in the spirits of all who believe in and on Him, forgives all their sins forever,  fills them with the Holy Spirit, makes them new creations in Him, is their Advocate before the throne of the Father, and will return again to take them unto Himself, then come to absolutely destroy the rule of all human and satanic evil for all eternity, then create new heavens and a new earth  where the righteous will abide with God forever.

     

    2. Doctrine of repentance from dead works. Yes, we absolutely believe and agree faithfully and steadfastly, that all sin is wrong. As forgiven holy people we have stopped making excuses for our sins and short comings through repenting, turning from them and doing God’s will rather than choosing to rebel by doing our own.

     

     

    3. Doctrine of faith in God. Yes, we absolutely believe, obey and agree faithfully and steadfastly with the Bible and all that it has said about God because God is absolute truth and it is impossible for him to lie.

     

    4. The doctrine of baptisms. Yes, we absolutely faithfully and steadfastly believe, agree and Know the doctrine of the baptisms: the doctrine of the baptism of the Holy Spirit and the doctrine of water baptism are not the same. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is received at faith in and through Jesus Christ for all time at the time of salvation. None can be regenerated nor considered a Christian who has never received the Holy Spirit. We absolutely, faithfully, and steadfastly believe and agree and know that water baptism is for believers only, is an ordinance of the church and can never bestow salvation. Water baptism follows after salvation as a public act of identification as a believer in Jesus Christ. Baptism in water is a symbol of Christ’s burial and resurrection. Our entrance into the water during baptism identifies us with Christ’s death on the cross, His burial in the tomb, and His resurrection from the dead. “Going under the water was a burial of your old life; coming up out of it was a resurrection, God raising you from the dead as he did Christ.

     

     

    5. The doctrine of the laying on of hands, and the difference between certain specific acts of the laying on of hands that were limited- given only to God’s apostles and that the type of laying on of hands given to the church as a whole- are not the same and not for the same purpose. Apostolic laying on of hands, was given only to the apostolic ministry: Act 8:18 And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money.

     

    6. The doctrine of the resurrection of the dead-Yes we absolutely believe and agree faithfully without doubt or wavering that all those in Christ will be resurrected to eternal life, and shall have everlasting life in His kingdom, and those who refuse to believe in Him-His enemies, will be resurrected to the second death which is the final death, eternal damnation, and eternal separation from God and eternal unabated torment the lake of fire, prepared for the devil and his angels and all unrepentant sinners.

     

     

    7. The doctrine of eternal judgement for believers and unbelievers- yes, we believe and agree faithfully and steadfast that  God’s judgement is  final, fixed, complete, and absolute. Those forgiven of all their sins- all believers, eternally escape the wrath of God through faith in His Son Jesus Christ. The unbelieving sinner will receive the full brunt of God’s wrath against all sinners for having rejected the sole source of complete atonement for all sins Jesus Christ, God’s only appointed saviour. Therefore, all unrepentant sinners will pay for all their own sins in unabated torment for all eternity, seeing they have rejected the sole source of atonement for all sins through Jesus Christ, the only appointed saviour by God.

    Dearly beloveds we can all go on to perfection by being absolutely, firmly, unwavering faithful in believing and obeying the foundational principles of the New Covenant of Jesus Christ. This is God’s absolute will for His people-His will is always absolute. Anyone who cannot absolutely believe and agree with God, the problem is not with God nor can it ever be, the problem is with them. I pray they will repent.

    Help the weak brother or sister, saints (G40 hagios). We are not in a competition, but in cooperation with God in aiding one another in our journey in going on to perfection.

    JOURNEY IN HEBREWS

    GOD CALLS US TO MATURITY

    Heb 6:1 - Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, 2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. 3 And this will we do, if God permit.

     

    The Bible reminds us again here that there is no doctrine of perpetual spiritual babyhood, where those claiming to be Christians never grow to absolute spiritual and moral maturity. God in these first few verses of Hebrews gives His absolute standard by which we can measure our own growth over time. Certainly, we may all arrive at different times, learning incrementally, but it is the expectation of God that at some point we absolutely reach stability in our understanding of the guiding eternal principals of the New Covenant of Jesus Christ.

     

    This means, brothers and sisters, that we do not reach perfection overnight, however by the power of God, the grace of Jesus Christ, and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, our growth with our regular rigorous Bible study, the aid of servant leaders, godly teachers and the body general is incremental, so that over time we absolutely are not still  questioning, doubting, and/or resisting the foundational principals of the New testament of Jesus Christ, but steadfast and immoveable without doubting, or resisting, this is the place where all Christians move on to perfection. We find ourselves no longer wishy washy, touchy feely, warm and fuzzy, wavering, doubting, compromising with the world, the flesh, including our own old nature, and the devil; as opposed to those who are:

     2Ti 3:7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. This state, according to the Bible, is never the hallmark of true Christians.

    We do not have to worry because we  know God is faithful and keeps His promise, every Christian will grow by His power out of love and obedience to Him.

     

     

    Perfection: the state of the more intelligent; moral and spiritual perfection.

    Perfect: Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:48 - Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

    God is not sitting around doubting Himself in fact it is impossible for God to doubt Himself, His will and His work. He expects the same of His people.

     Luk 6:40 - The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master.

    Jesus Christ is not sitting around doubting His Father, doubting Himself, as it is impossible for He is perpetually steadfast in belief, knowing and doing the work and will of the Father, and we are commanded to be the same.

    Perfect: to render, i.e. to fit, sound, complete.

    A. to mend (what has been broken or rent), to repair

    i.to complete.

    B. to fit out, equip, put in order, arrange, adjust.

     .to fit or frame for one's self, prepare.

    C. ethically: to strengthen, perfect, complete, make one what he ought to be.

    WITCHCRAFT IN THE CHURCH

    Brothers and sisters this might appear to be an odd place to bring up the subject of witchcraft in the church. However, it is not and we will look at it briefly at this time. Obviously, even baby Christians know witchcraft is forbidden by God to be practiced by anyone including the Christian. The problem is that even some seasoned mature Christians do not recognize it when it appears amongst the church, but many do and oppose. Witchcraft is trying to gain something by ways and methods forbidden by God, and/or through some other source of power whether human or the satanic realm. We have some coming out of the seminaries and others who promote man- made ways etc. to build up the church such as installing so called “worship leaders” and “music ministries” among other machinations “to build up the church” and attract people to fill it.

     

    Whenever these so called music ministries are installed or appear the congregational singing of praises to God ceases as these entertainers drown out the voices of the people of God with amplified music and worldly songs, hoping to make a lot of money by becoming “gospel stars of music”.

     

     The preaching of the gospel message also plummets to last or near last place in the service. The gospel is seen as too harsh and replaced with humor, homilies, and maybe even plays and dancers or even a movie. The whole purpose of this is to gain money not converting people to the gospel of Jesus Christ.

    The righteous will repent of this evil but the wicked never will. Thank God for the multitude of true servant leaders who carefully guard and protect the gospel and their flock from this and all apostasy because they believe and know the truth that:

    Psa 127:1 - [[A Song of degrees for Solomon.]] Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

     

    JOURNEY IN HEBREWS

    We return to our journey in Hebrews to the only Saviour appointed by God to save and build up His eternal church: Jesus said: Jhn 12:32 - And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.

     

     

    Dull of Hearing, Have Need of Milk

    Heb 5: 11Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to explain, seeing you are dull of hearing.

    12For when for the time you ought to be teachers, you have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of solid food. 13For every one that uses milk is unskillful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.

    I.Babe: an infant, little child

    II.a minor, not of age

    III.metaph. childish, untaught, unskilled

    Heb 5: 14But solid food belongs to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

    The Bible, dearly beloveds,  encourages, warns and commands that every believer can and must grow to maturity through learning living and applying the gospel message. Failure for us to develop and grow as a Christian is not an option, can never be justified and is never acceptable to God. Eternal babyhood is not a doctrine of the New Testament of Jesus Christ. Certainly, these Christians are the cause of their own lack of growth and the Bible gives none of us any excuse for this. They became spiritual cripples useless to teach anything because they refused to learn and retain anything.

    We don’t have to be this way the Bible is not learned by osmosis we all must study learn retain and apply what we learn through which God will mature us give us the knowledge and ability to discern both good and the evil.

     

    I.Full age: brought to its end, finished

    II.wanting nothing necessary to completeness

    III.perfect

    IV.that which is perfect

    A. consummate human integrity and virtue

    B. of men

    i.full grown, adult, of full age, mature

     

    Exercised: to exercise vigorously, in any way, either the body or the mind.

    Discern: diakrisis a distinguishing, discerning, judging.

    We end the fifth chapter of Hebrews here on this note and I pray and know that God will certainly grant us all the ability to grow in His grace, as we faithfully study and live His word out of love for and obedience to Him.

    JOURNY IN HEBREWS

    Heb 5: 7Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared; 8Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; 9And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him; 10Called of God an high priest after the order of Melchisedec.

    Scripture takes great care to repeatedly point out the eternal permanency of the high priesthood of Jesus Christ. Brothers and sisters, despite His great suffering, vilification, abuse, stalking, ceaseless death threats and plots to murder Him and great opposition of the religious leaders and others Jesus remained sinless, and faithful to God in fulfilling His ministry on earth.

    Jesus did not complain in His suffering. Jesus Christ trusted God and received the benefits that comes out of remaining obedient, faithful and trusting in God. Suffering through any difficulties for many is very difficult. Some question or even get angry at God when they suffer. However, when Jesus Christ suffered:  1Pe 2:23 Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:

    Jesus Christ knew the suffering that God allowed for Him had no power to destroy Him, but would serve God’s purposes: 1Pe 3:18

    For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:

    God allows suffering in the lives of His people, just as He did in the life of His Son Jesus Christ throughout His earthly ministry. None of it is ever to destroy His people, instead great benefit is received through it: 1Pe 4:1 Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;

    1Pe 5:10 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.

    It is dangerous to be biblically ignorant, especially in times of trials and suffering. Suffering is a part of God’s plan within the package in our salvation just as it was for the Son of God Jesus Christ.
