Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Hebrews 6:20


6:20 A forerunner uses to be less in dignity than those that are to follow him. But it is not so here; for Christ who is gone before us is infinitely superior to us. What an honour is it to believers, to have so glorious a forerunner, now appearing in the presence of God for them.

    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)
