Discussion for Hebrews 12:14

  • Isabella on Hebrews 12:14
    holiness is a lifestyle which differs dramatically from our mannerof life before we were saved.
  • Dr. Aderonmu Peter on Hebrews 12:14
    Hebrew 12:14 is a verse, a weapon, a tool, an artillery, a secret but influential weapon, a shield around an obedient child of God....... most importantly a dose for long life and enabler to enjoy prosperity. Thanks
  • Morris mensah on Hebrews 12:14
    What then is holiness? Holiness means setting yourself apart for the lord. It comes with self feniance and conscious effort to please God. One has to suppress the flesh in an attempt to pleasing God. May God help us to be holy for without holiness no man shall see God.
  • Ajayi gbenga on Hebrews 12:14
    without holiness NO men shall see the LORD Heb 12 14
  • Pansy Blackwell on Hebrews 12:14
    Many have ceased and left this world without having holiness.
  • Agyeman sarfo isaac on Hebrews 12:14
    Jesus himself in his teachings on the mountains said that "blessed are the peace makers for they shall be called the sons of God". In the light of the above statement together with what is in Hebrews 12:14 there is a clear indication without any doubt that children of God owe it a duty to ensure that they live peaceably with all people irrespective of their race, tribe, religion, country and what have you. This means that any reason assign as a basis for failing to live at peace with all men is not biblical and therefore unacceptable before God.

    On the other hand,it is important to note that holy living is very, very, very crucial if a christian wants to have an intimate relationship with God. Any body that lives a contrary life and claims to be in constant talks with God is nothing but a liar. In a traditional or literal sense, if one is not permitted to see the king or a person in authority there is no way they can present their case let alone getting hearing. This means that holiness is the key that opens the conversational door between God and his chosen people. It is the basis by which a child of God can have the audacity to question God on issues they don't understand.
  • TUKUTELA P on Hebrews 12:14
    I think this is exactly what the Lord want the Chritians to be. as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy
  • Gene on Hebrews 12:14
    I think many Pastors have been decieved into believing and teaching that someone can love God, be filled with His Spirit, and then later turn away and still walk into heaven, disregarding all the warnings, especially the one here that says without holiness, no man shall see the Lord. We are not talking works, we are talking denying your self. Is not self denial a proff of true salvation?
  • David - in Reply on Hebrews 12:14
    However, this scripture has nothing to do with heaven...we often wrap our minds around the word "holiness" as if it pertains to works or things we must do to gain life eternal...which aren't listed here because it doesn't refer to it, but what about the first part of the text..."Follow peace with ALL men" ?
  • Mishael - in Reply on Hebrews 12:14
    Kinda echos to Romans 12:18

    If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.
