Discussion for Hebrews 10

    We are to put our faith on Jesus Christ only, an ask God to help us not to go astray as the bible say we will not be forgiven after knowing the truth
  • BSP
    It is a very fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. There is no limit to God's power so we want to make sure we fear Him over man.
  • KarenP
    Jesus is the only sacrifice that atoned for our sins. Jesus is calling us to holiness and a life lived in Him, not our selves. We are to share this good news (gospel) with every creature. When we do what God has asked of us then we know we will have the promise that He gave to us (verse 36). But, if we do not, then we know He has no pleasure in us (verse 38
  • William
    "if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
    But a certain fearful looking for of judgement and fiery indignation." A hireling-pastor will tell you this scripture does not mean what it says.
  • DR.,ELDER, WILLIAM H DEWBERRY, JR.
    What the Holy Spirit, was saying through Paul the Apostle, to encourage Christian Jews because of persecution, and being thrown out of Israel, they now want to go back to Judaism. It's now have been 20- 25 years of being Christians with much opposition, trials, and tribulation. The scope is that Christ Jesus is better. 1:-10:, He's better than the Prophets, angels, Moses, Joshua, priest sacrafices
  • Udochukwu
    I think what God needs from us is to pass the gospel to others, sing praises to him ( which is the only thing that move God) and pray without seizing after your born again and God is happpy that you have done something for him.
    Gathering is only good only if those that gather do so in truth and spirit. Anything short of that God is not there. God, "said don't yoke your self with unbelivers"
