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.

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.

    Nichole, that is a very good question! We fall from grace when we choose the world and it's ways above GOD and the values He requires us to live by. GOD's will MUST be preeminent! That means His will comes before all else, even those fleshly desires we believe we must fulfill.
