Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Hebrews 6:5


6:5 And have tasted the good word of God - Have had a relish for, and a delight in it. And the powers of the world to come - Which every one tastes, who has an hope full of immortality. Every child that is naturally born, first sees the light, then receives and tastes proper nourishment, and partakes of the things of this world. In like manner, the apostle, comparing spiritual with natural things, speaks of one born of the Spirit, as seeing the light, tasting the sweetness, and partaking of the things of the world to come.

    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."
