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.

People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 12:24

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.

Discussion for Hebrews 12

  • A disciple
    servant; Jesus was not "a beacon who realized..." but He is and has ever been from everlasting with the Father, the eternal and divine Son of God! If you look at the 6th Chapter of Genesis, you will see that it was precisely that very reason for the LORD to say, "My Spirit will not always strive with man, for that HE ALSO IS FLESH." Those who can't quit sinning are in defiance and disobedience!
  • A disciple
    "Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin." When Paul wrote this Epistle to the Hebrew Believers; he very much had to address the indolence and apostasy that they had succumbed to, and took great pains to thoroughly convict them by expounding the deep things of the Scriptures. While most are so uncircumcised in heart to endure any correction, how can they expect victory over sin?
  • Servant of God
    Disciple, You are flesh and blood which decays and dies if you doubt the Spirit is the life whom God is the Father of. Jesus was a beacon who realized that the Kingdom is within and we can only serve the Father and hope in his salvation. GOD-SPIRIT
  • A disciple
    There is no wavering or uncertainty with the Apostle; and there is to be no wavering nor uncertainty with ANY of the Saints! Who is a liar, but he that denies that Jesus is the Christ! If someone contradicts the truth of the Glad Tidings, he opposes the good and perfect completion of Christ's work, which the Father sent Him to do; which is to SAVE US FROM OUR SINS and create us anew for signs!
  • Servant of God
    Paul wavers a bit saying that we are not exonerated of sin in fact because Jesus took the stripes but it is the Chastening of the Father that heals inequity, that salves our wounds if we repent. No one is without sin and no one can forgive sins but the Father and those whom He has sent. Jesus endured the ultimate Chastening on the cross and now witnesses to the mercy of the Father forever.amen

    The Lake of Fire (Rev. 20:10) The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
