Hebrews Part 27


Okay, Hebrews should be getting a lot more understandable now!

“Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.” (Hebrews 2:14–15, KJV)

The utter depression of sin. We want to rise above it, but cannot.

We want to do what is right, but cannot.

What we want to do we do not – and that which we would not do, that we do.

And we fear death, because thence cometh the judgment.

What we fear, we are in bondage to.

Christ has freed us.

“For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham. Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.” (Hebrews 2:16–17, KJV)

We now begin moving back towards that which was hinted at earlier, the Priesthood of Christ. The earthly high priest cannot sit down, his work is not done and can never be done.

Christ sat down at the right hand of God. Why? His work is done. The furnishings in the Heavenly holy of holies containts a chair, something the earthly one does not.

If you’e standing, you’re still working. Christ is sitting.

Again, the distinction is made that Christ is not an Angel. Really! It’s been saying that! SDA and JW’s are utterly in the dark, because they’re insisting on a doctrine that says Jesus Christ is Michael the Archangel – and Hebrews keeps saying, “uh… no.”

Jesus Christ, God in the flesh, became a man. Not just a man, but a Jew. Not even a smaller tribe like Issachar, but lost in the crowds as a member of Judah. One of the myriads of David’s descendants.

One of the poor.

And He’s going to give us crowns???

How is Jesus Christ going to make reconciliation for the sins of the people? One offering. his own life, flesh and blood.

Hebrews is going to explain it in some detail.

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???
