People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 6:7


Heb 6:7,8 For the earth . . . recevieth blessing from God. These two verses show that treatment depends on what kind of fruit is borne. God sends sunshine and rain on the earth. If it brings forth food for man, it is blessed. But if it brings forth "thorns and briers", they are rejected. So God, who blesses our lives, and refreshes them with the Gospel, demands righteous fruit. If they bear thorns, "the end" is destruction.

    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."
