Bible Commentary for Hebrews 9:14

Wesley's Notes for Hebrews 9:14


9:14 How much more shall the blood of Christ. - The merit of all his sufferings. Who through the eternal Spirit - The work of redemption being the work of the whole Trinity. Neither is the Second Person alone concerned even in the amazing condescension that was needful to complete it. The Father delivers up the kingdom to the Son; and the Holy Ghost becomes the gift of the Messiah, being, as it were, sent according to his good pleasure. Offered himself - Infinitely more precious than any created victim, and that without spot to God. Purge our conscience - Our inmost soul. From dead works - From all the inward and outward works of the devil, which spring from spiritual death in the soul, and lead to death everlasting. To serve the living God - In the life of faith, in perfect love and spotless holiness.


People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 9:14


Heb 9:14 How much more shall the blood of Christ. If the blood of animals had any efficacy to purify, how much more the blood of Christ? Who through the eternal Spirit. Led by the Divine Spirit. Offered himself without spot to God. He was dragged to the sacrifice like the victims, but laid down his own life to take it up again (Joh 10:15,17). This he did as God's Anointed, anointed with the Spirit, acting by its power. Purge your conscience from dead works. Cleanse it from the guilt of works which deserve death. To serve the living God? If the sacrifices of the tabernacle cleansed from ceremonial pollution so that men could engage in its service, will not the blood of Christ cleanse you so that you can join in the acceptable service of the living God?

Discussion for Hebrews 9

    2Timothy chapter 4 verses 3,4

    If it's not found in the scriptures it's a fable . And if the scriptures are not very defined and accurate don't twist them into something it's not saying . With out the Holy Spirits guidance you may very well end up with some corruption of the word of God .

    Those that corrupt the word of God are more than those that do not . Even in Apostle Paul's time . So most are false teachers and today we have armies of them .

    Read the bible for yourself seek the truth . Amen !

    God is faithful unto all Generations. His word endured for ever ! Jesus is Risen and coming again be ready !
  • Patricia England on Hebrews 9:14
    If a Christian makes a promise to GOD and does not keep it but continually repents for making that promise will GOD forgive them? The promise was made while in excruciating pain.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Hebrews 9:14
    The Bible says much about vows and oaths. I believe you made a promise, which is different as Psalm 76:11 indicates.

    Here is this websites commentary on That scripture:

    Redeemer.

    7-12 God's people are the meek of the earth, the quiet in the land, that suffer wrong, but do none. The righteous God seems to keep silence long, yet, sooner or later, he will make judgment to be heard. We live in an angry, provoking world; we often feel much, and are apt to fear more, from the wrath of man. What will not turn to his praise, shall not be suffered to break out. He can set bounds to the wrath of man, as he does to the raging sea; hitherto it shall come, and no further. Let all submit to God. Our prayers and praises, and especially our hearts, are The Presents we should bring to the Lord. His name is glorious, and he is the proper object of our fear. He shall cut off the spirit of princes; he shall slip it off easily, as we slip off a flower from the stalk, or a bunch of grapes from the vine; so the word signifies. He can dispirit the most daring: since there is no contending with God, it is our wisdom, as it is our duty, to submit to him. Let us seek his favour as our portion, and commit all our concerns to him.

    Commentary by Matthew Henry, 1710.

    I don't know what you vowed or promised, so I cannot say more. I think you should have a meeting with your Pastor and pray about this. Get this off your chest, so-to-speak.
  • Carleton - in Reply on Hebrews 9:14
    Beautiful!
  • Adam - in Reply on Hebrews 9:14
    Hello, yes, you will be forgiven if you follow Jesus. But under grace we still are accountable for our actions. Jesus asks us to avoid sin. Jesus says in the way we forgive others we will also be forgiven. Read Matthew 18.
