Wesley's Notes for Hebrews 12:24


12:24 To Jesus, the mediator - Through whom they had been perfected. And to the blood of sprinkling - To all the virtue of his precious blood shed for you, whereby ye are sprinkled from an evil conscience. This blood of sprinkling was the foundation of our Lord's mediatorial office. Here the gradation is at the highest point. Which speaketh better things than that of Abel - Which cried for vengeance.


People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 12:24


Heb 12:24 To Jesus the mediator of the new covenant. To fellowship with Jesus, the Mediator of the New Covenant as Moses was of the Old. And to the blood of sprinkling. To Christ's atoning blood by which our hearts are "sprinkled from an evil conscience" (Heb 10:22). That speaketh better things than [that of] Abel. Abel's blood cried for vengeance; Christ's pleads for mercy.

    HEB 12:2 -- "...........WHO FOR THE JOY SET BEFORE HIM ENDURED THE CROSS............." The 'joy' .....; can you imagine!? Nor was it His personal joy He was thinking of, but His joy in OUR salvation when we followed Him in Acts 2:38. He went thru this for us, not for Himself.

    Faithful Christians welcome the Lords chastisement because they understand that it is for their own spiritual good.Christians must have the desire to be corrected when they a walking froward to God's word.God is a loving,caring,forgiving, and just God.Faithful Christians need to always be in remembrance of that.
  • Jonathan McDade
    The Kingdom we receive is inside us when God grants us piece, and if he has delivered us from evil through prayer in secret then we must remember to honour our loving God the Father so that we are never in the hands of the enemy, it would be foolish not to fear God who can do such amazing things for us. What an amazing big God he is.
