Wesley's Notes for Hebrews 6:18


6:18 That by two unchangeable things - His promise and his oath, in either, much more in both of which, it was impossible for God to lie, we might have strong consolation - Swallowing up all doubt and fear. Who have fled - After having been tossed by many storms. To lay hold on the hope set before us - On Christ, the object of our hope, and the glory we hope for through him.

Heb 6:18 That by two immutable things. By his word of promise, and by his oath, neither of which could ever be broken. We might have a strong consolation. In the absolute certainty of God's promises who had fled for refuge. Fled from the wrath revealed against sin to the Gospel with its promises and blessed hopes.

    GOD IS FAITHFUL TO HIS PROMISES EVEN HIS OWN WORDS HE IS WATCHING. HIS WORDS WILL COMFORT US WITH THE TRUTH AND NOT WITH A LIE . THANKS TO THE BLOOD OF JESUS BY HIS BLOOD WE ARE CLEANSE AND FORGIVEN WE ARE HEALD FROM OUR UNRIGHTEOUSNESS. BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS ONLY WE ARE REDEEMED. JESUS IS THE CONTROL OF OUR LIFE WITHOUT HIM AS A VINE THERE IS NO BRANCHES/US. I WILL WORSHIP YOU AND PRAISE JESUS

    ONE CANNOT THROW AWAY GOD'S PLAN OF SALVATION THROUGH JESUS CHRIST AND EXPECT TO BE SAVED, ESPECIALLY KNOWING IT IS THE TRUTH. THERE IS NO HOPE OF SALVATION IF ONE HAS FORSAKEN IT BY CHOICE, BECOMING AN APOSTATE. BY THIS CHAPTER WE CAN SEE ONE CAN LOOSE THIER SALVATION ,BECAUSE GOD GAVE US FREE WILL TO CHOOSE.
  • Art
    IN THIS CHAPTER IT IS DISCUSSING THOSE WHO ONCE HAD BEEN SAVED AND KNEW CHRIST AND HIS FORGIVENESS, LOVE AND COMPASSION, LEAVING THAT ESTATE FORSAKING CHRIST TOTALLY LEAVING GOD'S PLAN OF SALVATION EVEN THOUGH THEY HAD EXPERIENCED IT. THEY FORSAKE THE TRUTH NO LONGER BELIEVING IN THE PLAN OF SALVATION WITH ALL THEIR HEART, NEVER TO BELIEVE AGAIN. THEN THEY HAVE NO HOPE BECAUSE THEY FORSOOK IT.

    BOOM! V1 let's go on to PERFECTION. Many say no one is perfect, well not in the flesh, but in the spirit we are perfect. It's in the word! Let us not keep repenting and putting Jesus to an open shame before those who are watching us! He's coming for those w/o spot or blemish right? Sounds like he's looking for perfection to me. It's in the word. Let's allow God to perfect us!

    I believe osas is true because of the grace Jesus gives to the recipient at the time of belief and confession, I also believe one would be judged according to his actions(works)
