Wesley's Notes for Hebrews 10:25


10:25 Not forsaking the assembling ourselves - In public or private worship. As the manner of some is - Either through fear of persecution, or from a vain imagination that they were above external ordinances. But exhorting one another - To faith, love, and good works. And so much the more, as ye see the day approaching - The great day is ever in your eye.


People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 10:25


Heb 10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves. In times of persecution there was a great temptation to stay away from the church assemblies, and some had fallen into dangerous neglect. As ye see the day approaching. There were signs that the Hebrew Christians could see that "the day" was near at hand. They probably thought that Christ would come in person at that day. He did come in judgment on the Jewish nation. As that awful time of trial seemed near at hand they should be zealous in exhorting each other. Macknight, Stuart, Milligan, Meyer and many others refer "day" to the destruction of the Jewish nation.

    Coming together as a brethren brings unity, cooperation and togetherness if and only if there is a true love. There are so many things that can bring brethren together, for example, encouragement, solving one brethren problem or the other, study God's word, prayer, evangelism, etc. We should not neglect the assembly of ourselves.
  • Pastor david mutsharini for verse 25
    We grow better by coming together as the bible says iron sharpens iron for two is better than one.
  • Chas Traficante for verse 25
    Christ Himself sought after fellowship with His apostle 's. He asked them to join Him in prayer, feed the masses, grieve with Him over Lazarus, help in healing. Even the Father says in the beginning when He created that "It is very good " All believers should be able to recognize the difference between the gathering of the saints for worship or just fellowship to just conversation with a friend. Having said that I also realize that within the Church body there are our homebound brothers and sisters. It the duty of the Church to not forsake these beloved ones either. Pray for the home bound, the missionaries, our soldiers and all Christians that do not have the ability to gather

    It 's only when brethren gather together in unity that GOD releases HIS anointing to strengthen HIS body. A body can only funtion when it 's together.May we yield to HIS exultetion to enable HIM to bless us.
  • MockingBird for verse 25
    When God called me out of the world system into His Glorious Lordship and fellowship , I entered into a new world. When I first got into church I had a Great incounter with God. I was about to go through a great trial of which I knew nothing about at the time that Jesus touched me in a Mighty way I suffered a lot of persecution much ridicule and mocking. Not only at church but at work. I stay in church because that is my home that God called me to be in . You must not allow others to differ you away from assembling with fellow believers they may not agree with what God has taught you but you can be in agree without being disagreeable. You are not to pretend that it is not there. You are to have your eyes fixed on Jesus Christ and love others as He loves others. You may not be able to fellowship with them but you can be friendly to them and go on with God . There are others there that God will place you with that you and them can build each other up . Be at church to be with Jesus. That is the main goal. Yes it is hard but it is rewarding. Believe me I made it through. I am Blessed and Blessed !!!!
