People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 6:2


Heb 6:2 Of the doctrine of baptisms. The third of these first principles which belong to the "foundation" relates to baptism. See Ac 2:38 Eph 4:5 Mt 28:19. But why is the plural used? There is but one baptism in water when the penitent is baptized into Christ (Eph 4:5 Ga 3:27). There is, however, another baptism which was promised before Christ came which was not of water. See Mt 3:12. Christ also promised it before his ascension. Hence there is not only the baptism of the body in water, but of the spirit in the Holy Spirit, as fulfilled on the day of Pentecost. Of laying on of hands. In the primitive church the extraordinary operation of the Holy Spirit was imparted by the laying on of the Apostolic hands (Ac 8:17). Of the resurrection of the dead. One of the fundamental but primary principles of Christian teaching. Of eternal judgment. This was comprehended in teaching the resurrection. All were to be rewarded according to the deeds of this life.

    heb 6:4-6 confusion: pulled those enlightened, tasted the heavenly gift, shared the Holy Spirit. If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame. [Heb 6:5-6 ESV] 5 and have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the age to come, 6 and then have fallen away, to restore them aga

    If anyone think you can lose salvation you need to examine yourself see if your saved you got some seducing spirit. I LABOR IN WORD AND DOCTRINE so I know that verse refers to an apostate believer if you don't produce good fruit your chasetened you refuse and backslide then SIN UNTO DEATH for saved ONLY you'll lose your life only not salvation. NO MAN SHALL PLUCK YOU OF MY FATHERS HAND

    NO Jim! Once saved, AFTERWARDS DESTROYED FOR UNBELIEF! Not once saved always saved: for then we could do what we want, live scandalous, selfish, filthy unclean lives, an abhorrence to God and man; "But we're Christians!" How does anyone NOT understand that? The evil tree which produces rotten fruit IS CUT DOWN AND THROWN INTO THE FIRE! "Then truly by their fruits you shall know them."
