Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Hebrews 12:26


12:26 Whose voice then shook the earth - When he spoke from mount Sinai. But now - With regard to his next speaking. He hath promised - It is a joyful promise to the saints, though dreadful to the wicked. Yet once more I will shake, not only the earth, but also the heaven - These words may refer in a lower sense to the dissolution of the Jewish church and state; but in their full sense they undoubtedly look much farther, even to the end of all things. This universal shaking began at the first coming of Christ. It will be consummated at his second coming. #Hag 2:6|.

    Jesus said that everyone has to salted with fire which is baptism of the H.G. A Spritual fire that is gonna CLEANSE US, in the natural gold has to be tried in fire to remove all the impurities ( OUR SIN NATURE ) as OUR God is a CONSUMING FIRE that is gonna consume mans evil nature Who shall abide the day of his coming who shall stand when he appears he shall be as A REFINERS FIRE and FULLERS SOAP.

    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.
