People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 13:7


Heb 13:7 Remember them which have the rule over you. "Remember them that had the rule over you" (Revised Version). As the past tense is used, the rulers named, it is thought, were dead. At the date of this epistle, James the brother of John, and "James the brother of our Lord", both so closely connected with the Jerusalem church, had suffered martyrdom. The last named, whose martyrdom is recorded by Josephus, was put to death in A.D. 63. Whose faith follow. Imitate it.

    Mike, I will pray for you your wife. My suggestion is for you to turn your life more toward Jesus and God seeking to increase your faith. This may not be easy at the moment, but NOW is the time given what you wrote.
  • Mike
    There is so much turmoil in my life I have no idea what to believe or not. I 've lost everyone I love including both parents and now my spouse is dying from ALS. Her family, instead of helping care for her, spends their time telling me that I 'm being cruel and abusive and that I 'm "f "ing things up and they hate me. I 'm afraid to pray for help because when I prayed to God to save my parents he still took them. I 've never been so lonely in my life and the only things that keep me going is that there are other people who have things a lot worse then me, and I really have no other choice but live another day.
