Wesley's Notes for Hebrews 10:25


10:25 Not forsaking the assembling ourselves - In public or private worship. As the manner of some is - Either through fear of persecution, or from a vain imagination that they were above external ordinances. But exhorting one another - To faith, love, and good works. And so much the more, as ye see the day approaching - The great day is ever in your eye.


People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 10:25


Heb 10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves. In times of persecution there was a great temptation to stay away from the church assemblies, and some had fallen into dangerous neglect. As ye see the day approaching. There were signs that the Hebrew Christians could see that "the day" was near at hand. They probably thought that Christ would come in person at that day. He did come in judgment on the Jewish nation. As that awful time of trial seemed near at hand they should be zealous in exhorting each other. Macknight, Stuart, Milligan, Meyer and many others refer "day" to the destruction of the Jewish nation.

    Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.To me this verse talks about us that after we have received Him as Lord and Savior, We should then seek His face by reading the word of God, what our assignment is in this world and perform it.
  • Hloni
    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.
  • 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"
