Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Hebrews 12:14


12:14 Follow peace with all men - This second branch of the exhortation concerns our neighbours; the third, God. And holiness - The not following after all holiness, is the direct way to fall into sin of every kind.

Discussion for Hebrews 12

    We should strive to pursue peace with all men.
  • MR. HUNTER
    I DON'T THINK , I KNOW THAT THIS SCRIPTURE VERSE IS ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL VERSES IN THE ENTIRE BIBLE. THIS VERSE HEBREWS 12:14 SAY'S WHAT IT MEANS AND MEANS WHAT IT SAYS NO MAN SHALL SEE THE LORD IN PEACE WITHOUT HOLINESS. PEOPLE HOLINESS IS GOD AND GOD IS HOLINESS. TODAY AND YESTERDAY GOD WAS HOLY AND TOMORROW GOD WILL STILL BE HOLY AND HOLINESS. THEREFORE ? WHY WOULD YOU OR ANYONE ON THIS EARTH WANT TO BE IN ANY OTHER FAITH BELIEVING STATE OTHER THAN BEING HOLY. IN CONCLUSION BUT NOT FINISH THE WHOLE WORLD SHOULD REEXAMINE THEIR RELIGIONS AND SEE RATHER THE CHURCH THEY ATTEND TRULY TEACHES PURE HOLINESS AND NOT SOME MESS THAT LIMITS GOD FROM BEING ALL IN ALL IN THEIR LIFE. THE TIME IS VERY CLOSE TO JESUS CHRIST RETURN WHO IS GOD , AMEN ! SO FOR ALL THE HUMAN RACE THAT ARE NOT HOLINESS SHOULD IMMEDIATELY ASK GOD TODAY " WHAT MUST I DO TO BE SAVED " ANSWER OBEY IN THE BIBLE ACTS 2:38 TO START AND SEE WANT JESUS GOD MAKE YOU HOLINESS. PEACE UNTO YOU AND THE LORD JESUS LOVE YOU ALWAY .

    "Lest there be any fornica or or profane person" God sends strong delusion to workers of iniquity who presume to eat of the Tree of Life. This is the blasphemy of the sacrifice that causes it to cease. There is no more a place for repentance, though some seek after "with strong crying and tears". As Esau, a profane man, who sold his birthright for a piece of flesh.

    There is only one straight narrow path that God will accept To enter the kingdom of God. Faith, obedience to the word, in sincerity in truth. JOHN 14
  • SIBUSISO S DLAMINI
    well what I think about Hebrews 12 is that this scripture is the one that can be more effective when you TEACH the church of God about how you react as a new born or the son of the living God JESUS CHRIST so that all those who willing to join the havens family will come I Big Numbers.
