Hebrews Part 23


“What is man, that thou art mindful of him? And the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, And hast crowned him with glory and honour. Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; Thou hast put all things under his feet:” (Psalm 8:4–6, KJV)

“For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak. But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him? Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands: Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him. 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.” (Hebrews 2:5–9, KJV)

Quick Question: Why is King Messiah the KIng?

Answer… Hebrews 2:9. “He by the grace of God should taste death for every man.”

But the point I left off at yesterday was this…

“Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him.” (Hebrews 2:8, KJV)

“Nothing that is not put under Him.”

What is not put under Jesus Christ?

Answer: nothing. Everything and everyone is put under His rule and dominion.

Including you. A study on Doulos (doo-loss) would be beneficial right now. I’ll probably add that as a study break in a few days. Quick hint, though – at some point today or tomorrow, read the story of the Centurion who’s servant was sick.

Jesus Christ died for all men. Does that mean all men are automatically saved? No. Usually the people who believe that are people whose beliefs deny the deity of Christ, and as a feel good measure, they then assume Universalism – that way they don’t have to lie awake at night, worried about Hell.

Great plan! That way it sneaks up on you! I’m going to say very plainly, if you don’t accept the deity of Christ, if you deny the virgin birth or the vicarious atonement of Christ, you really shouldn’t be surprised if your first sensation after you release your last breath is…. sudden searing agony.

People, it’s SENSELESS! WHY are people going to Hell, when salvation is free and relatively simple?

Christ died for our sins. He, sinless, paid a debt He did not owe. We owed a debt we could not pay.

There you go! That really does sum up a LOT of Bible doctrine right there!

The ease of salvation is unbelievable, compared to the endless rites you have to do in other religions. Try being a Chassid for just ONE YEAR! Try living that lifestyle! The only thing that really ruins that is the knowledge that all the service you’re doing for God is polluted by sinflu hands.

Yet when I dare to mention the word “repent” in conjunction with salvation, I get long, drawn out theological debates on this blog. People, it’s time we started consulting the Bible and stopped relying on Christian tradition. Prior to the 1960’s, repentence was understood as a matter of fact with regard to salvation. Christians understood that if you walked the aisle to make a profession of faith, you had better mean it – and if you didn’t see a change in your life, you’d better walk that aisle again!

But the majority of today’s Christians think, “I prayed a prayer, and everything’s good!” …and still go on living the exact same life they lived before they called themsleves Christian.

Hm.

Good luck with that. See my warning to the THeological liberals on this same post.

Apostasy reigns around us, churches are sliding into worldiness, a whitewashed Gospel is preached everywhere... "Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein. Jeremiah 6:16 (KJV) So, I'm speaking out. ...Why aren't you???
