Heb 9:25 Nor yet that he should offer himself often. The high priest entered once a year with the blood of a victim. Not so Christ, our High Priest.

Discussion for Hebrews 9

  • A disciple
    "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: so Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation." In the beginning when Adam sinned God first had them confess what they had done and so by their testimony He condemned the devil and pronounced Christ to come to bruise his head.
  • A disciple
    Louis (cont.); In the world of the beginning, what was it that caused the whole world to be corrupted and filled with violence and utterly WORTHLESS; so that ALL that God could do was to destroy everyone and everything, and start over with Noah and his sons? It was the sons of God the ones who HAD the knowledge of God and hardened their hearts and turned away from His Spirit of the Law and Christ!
  • A disciple
    Louis; Could you please explain in your own words, and your own understanding, how it is impossible to keep the Law and be a Christian at the same time? Interestingly, the Lord Himself said that the Law and the Prophets wouldn't pass even up to as far as if the heaven and earth passed away! And since when does someone who completes his schooling then have to condemn and forsake all he's learned?
  • Louis Dean Chambless
    I know a man who believes in and confessed to follow the whole bible, the law of Moses as well as the law of Christ. This is vast ignorance and is impossible. He is immovable in his unjustified beliefs.

  • Gerald Fields
    I believe that when the Bible say's it is appointed unto man once to die, it is not referring to a physical death because Lazarus died twice, Enoch never died and neither did Elijah (as examples) I believe it is referencing a soul death. Ezekiel 18:20 states that the soul that sinneth, it shall die..thus the need for man to be "born again", that's my interpretation based on what God's tells me
  • Ron
    There are plenty of people who die twice, Lazarus, the widow's son, the young maiden. All three were stone cold dead and were resurrected to live out their lives and die a second time. The Lord Jesus Christ died ONCE NEVER TO DIE AGAIN!. There is a difference. All those at the final judgement died physically and spiritually once and will die a second time never to see God again, EVER!
