Discussion for Hebrews 10

  • Ron
    First of all are you Jewish? Are you a Hebrew to whom this letter was written to? Verse 26 explains itself in the second half of the verse, "There remains no more sacrifice for sin". If the 'HEBREWS' learn of Christ's sacrifice but change their mind and go back to animal sacrifices at the temple they are as good as in Hell with the door locked. This book is written to Israel...are your Israel? It is not talking about a saved gentile or Jew's daily sins! EVERY CHRISTIAN ON THIS EARTH SINS EVERYDAY AND KNOWS IT! This letter is written to Israel not the body of Christ. It is warning them that once they learn of Christ and they turn back to animal sacrifices they are now without excuse and are doomed. We need to pay more attention to the books of the Bible written directly to us today by the Apostle to the Gentiles, Paul Romans through Philemon . The rest of the books are written to Israel and are for our 'Learning'.
  • Edwin nhliziyo for verse 26
    Hebrews 10:26 means what it says. If you are saved but you continue to be a prostitute, an adulterer, a fornicator, a thief, an idolater etc., even after you have come to know the truth that you are sinning , then the saving blood of Jesus is no longer of any use to you. If you die in that state without repenting, you're going to hell, no question about it. Organized Christianity is telling these prostitutes, thieves, idolaters etc., that they have a free pass to heaven because they confess Christianity, even they continue their sinful lifestyles. That is a lie. It is however good for business. A majority of Christians live these lives and they feel good each time they go to church, tithe and make an offering etc., because this makes it easy for them to live with themselves. It a conscience cleansing thing, so don't be fooled. Now go and read Roman's 6:1-2 to seal your understanding of Hebrews 10:26. If you still have doubts, read Hebrews 4:19 all the way through to Hebrews 5:11. Keep studying these verses, first in modern English, and when you are satisfied you understand, then read the King James to confirm your understanding.
  • Ralph owen for verse 26
    The born again not capable of any sinning--the text refers to those coming to the door of justification, but never entering in and returning to judaism or their gentile sinning.Bless God
  • Abraham for verse 25
    Gathering together sharing the gods word, praying for lost soul in this world and to be blessing to others,
  • Bonyah Isaac
    Verse 26 In the Old Covenant,animals sacrifices were used to atone for people sins The inspired writer is teling the Hebrews tha animal sacrifices are obsolete because Jesus sacrifice himself once as atonement for all men sins.Hence if they deliberately sin after knowing the truth,and does not repent and confess for the blood of Christ to atone for them,then no sacrifice again to take away sins.This is Jesus is seated at God's right hand acting as our advocates,that whenever we sin,we must confess our sins for His blood to cleanse us. 1 Jn 1:9 .Sin that can't be atoned by Jesus blood is unrepentant sin. 1 Jn.5:16 17 .
  • This verse is telling me we don't need man to go and tell GOD to forgive us of our sins. JESUS died once and for all our sins and we are save through His blood.
