  • Heidi Jipson on Hebrews 10:12
    I'm sorry but that is, unfortunately, a common misinterpretation of this verse. To see the Truth one simply has to ask two questions:

    1) How many times did Jesus die on the cross?

    2) For how many people did he die on the cross?

    If Jesus forgave sins past, present, and future (without a person acknowledging and truly repenting from sins) then there would have been no need for Him to tell the people He healed to go and sin no more. His sacrifice was not a license to continue leading a sinful life, doing whatever we want. That is one reason He says to count the cost.
  • Deborah on Hebrews 10:25
    in times now (2020) we are now having to be connected on phone lines and in some form of communication. God ( JESUS) should never be taken from our hearts and our thoughts, so as it speaks of assembling of ourselves together this is a sure way of uncertainty if we are truly for God are churches are separated our members are scattered seeking their strength and falling weak to divers temptations the word of God Should Always be in our hearts, minds, and spirit. We as christians should be as a spreading fire spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ never to feel that we are alone. we are together with the LORD.
  • Tarsha Miller on Hebrews 10:32
    In Hebrews Chapter 10 verse 32. Why was the word enlightened replaced with illuminate?
  • Chris - in Reply on Hebrews 10:32
    Do you mean why the KJV & some other versions use the word 'illuminated' instead of 'enlightened'? If so, both words mean the same in the original Greek 'photizo' = to enlighten, illumine, to bring light, to reveal.

    In Hebrews 6:4, the word used there is 'enlightened' which is from the same root word 'photizo'. Why the difference, I can't tell.

    But if you mean why a change was made in the KJV to read 'illuminated', then that question can only be answered to those who were involved in the translation.

    Hebrews 1026 about willing sin and no more sacrifices
  • James gordon on Hebrews 10:25
    I've looked and search and I'm just trying to be clear....the 25th verse says nothing about meeting in a building...so to speak in those days of the writer, there were no other forms of communication that could draw a closeness such as we have with technology today.....

    There are so many people i've spoken to in reference to not being inside a church building, yet they are able to meet through a media platform...

    question: Where in the bible does it state that the assembling is necessarily the inside of walls today....thanks, be bless.
  • Frank Garcia - in Reply on Hebrews 10:25
    Assembling of people means church not a building, in the days of Jesus Christians got together in homes. Now days we have the internet, cell phones, Bible studies, churches people coming together . the list is endless God bless you .
  • Vincent Calvert - in Reply on Hebrews 10:25
    I agree. Assembling is merely coming together as a congregation (however big that may be) to edify and exhort one another as fellow christians. No walls to any building are necessary. However, as time went by, more people gathered and a building was just a matter of course. I do believe there is an "outside" church near where I live. Quite frankly, I think an outside church is a great idea. This corona virus thing has forced my church into the parking lot and God's creation, and it is very nice. Yes, weather will take a toll, which is why the walls of a church are handy, but I am willing to go with it.
  • FELTON R WILSON on Hebrews 10
    Of the books of Matthew,Mark,Luke or John did any of them hear Jesus preach?
  • HARMONY OF THE GOSPELS - in Reply on Hebrews 10
    If you had read those books and passages you would have seen that the 4 Disciples had been present with Jesus in all of His Ministry. The title, Apostles, means that person had witnessed Jesus Alive.

    To deny it, is a perfect example of what an antichrist spirit looks like. You can't dispute: With what, IT IS WRITTEN.

    Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, are known as the Harmony Of The Gospels. All four men witnessed the same events.

  • Mishael - in Reply on Hebrews 10
    Here, again, Christ encourages His followers to keep their "hearts" from fear and trouble. This repeats the statement Jesus used to start this message (John 14:1), immediately after predicting Peter's cowardice (John 13:38). Here, again, scholars suggest that Jesus is distinguishing between being troubled in one's "spirit," meaning pain and unhappiness, as opposed to being troubled in one's "heart," meaning fear and despair. Jesus was said to have a troubled spirit, at times (John 11:33; 13:21). What He calls for here is not for Christians to be stone-faced and inhuman. Rather, it's to acknowledge the reality of suffering while at the same time trusting in God to make good on His promises.
  • Carleton - in Reply on Hebrews 10
    Likely Rick a Christian dad and mom that follow the Lord in the peace of God, and who train their children in the way of God will have children who will hear and obey the call of God to salvation in due time. A born again child say 12 years old is a member of God's Kingdom and if Baptized into God's Church on earth a member of the Bride of Christ, though young in age still a co- laborer in the faith once delivered unto the saints. This co- laborer by your view who knows the peace of God must be at fault until the laws of the land permit them to vote?

    This is non- sense and of grave error.

    Hebrews 10:26

    "For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,"

    Is the verse saying there no more chances if you keep sinning because no more sacrifice? If you keep sinning you can't sacrifice to make up for the sin. Like you toast?

    This verse talk like it is referring to you being alive and no more sacrifice for sin. If it meant after death they would not need to say " remaineth no more sacrifice for sins".

    Man this hard to learn...Does it mean something else maybe?
  • Mishael - in Reply on Hebrews 10:26
    Dear Lord, I give you my entire heart, soul and being. All of the training, studying and skills are yours. Each work that I do and the money I earn is done in your honor. I lay all of my hopes and aspirations at your feet. I pray that you will bless my work and find favor in all that I do. When I meet new challenges in my work, I pray that you will help me to overcome them and excel in my job. Please guide me throughout the day so that I may walk in your path in all that I do. Amen.

    Protect me in this time away from home. When I return, go before me and give me favor with my doctors. I ask that this tumor would dry up and I am healed by Jesus dying on the Cross so I may give praise to you for a good report. And I shall tell of all of your mercy and grace and favor. Praise you Jesus forever, amen.
  • Stephende on Hebrews 10
    I don't get the logic whereby because Jesus was "offered up", that our sins are remitted. There is no once andfor all that I can see. Jesus demonstrated that the death of the body does not touch the life in the body. Melchisidek walked the earth having no beginning or end but a priest continually. Remission of sins does not happen on earth, or only rarely as one is approved by God. Every Christian I know is like a whitewashed wall, pretending to be holy above the fray yet full of the same God awful and persistant fallacies as everyone else
  • Bendito Palavra - in Reply on Hebrews 10:25
    Most assuredly remission of sins happens on earth following blood atonement (Leviticus chapters 16 and 17). Yet only the blood of Jesus Christ is adequate propitiation, he being God in the flesh (Isaiah 53).

    What Jesus demonstrated was that he had power to lay down his life and then take it again. (John 10:18).

    Admittedly the character of Christians is too often a ready excuse for unbelief.

    Marginal medicine majors on the malady while repudiating the remedy.
  • Carleton - in Reply on Hebrews 10
    Jesus is the True High Priest and is the Prince of Salem (Peace) like the order of Melchisedec. Jesus completely fulfilled the position of Melchisedec and Abraham the Father of Faith paid tribute to him with Levi in his loins. Now his believing children are spiritual Levites on earth while Jesus is in the heavens.

    Hebrews 8 agrees that there was and is and always be only one offering of sacrifice (offered up). The born again believer by full remittance of sins becomes a chosen vessel, a royal priesthood in the order of a Levite priest (earthy) while Jesus remains the Heavenly Priest.

    His Holy Spirit directs our Priestly ways concerning our very own Tabernacle, in the order of peace which is harmless and not defiled and separate from sin.
  • Stephende - in Reply on Hebrews 10
    Yes, very Paulish explanation. I am a atudent of the Torah, which offers no blanket exoneration, but a warning to all of the terrible and awsome power of El Shaddai. He is a heart knower and a rewarder, but also a destroyer of those who act callously against the laws of God dictated to Moses for public consumption. Even though the KJB and the Torah relate the same history, they are a remarkably dissimilar. The Torah is straightforward without antiquated language. It lacks the story of Jesus and the obscure direction that Paul presents regarding the love of God and His directions for happiness on earth.

  • Prayer for peace and rest - in Reply on Hebrews 10:26
    You are the Comforter and the Healer.

    I need your power in my life.

    I feel a lot of anxiety and pressure right now. My mind is being attacked by the enemy of my soul. Heal my memories that I pray to forget.

    I am pressuring myself,

    attempting to either control, direct, or manage everything I care about.

    I need you to manage me.

    Take away the shame, calm my distress,

    sooth my afflictions, relieve my groaning,

    comfort my grief,

    strengthen my weaknesses,

    defeat my oppression,

    remember my pain,

    repair my brokenness,

    defeat my terror,

    reveal my confusion,

    champion my injustices,

    rescue me from danger.

    You are my rock, refuge, rescuer,

    confidante, leader, guide, deliverer,

    safe haven, merciful judge, shelter,

    sight, friend, preserver, champion.

    My pressures are nothing to you.

    My worries are almost laughable (except you would never laugh at me).

    My future is secure in you.

    My insecurities are unnecessary.

    All my days are numbered.

    Not one of them is lost to you.

    Lord, teach me tonumbermy days

    that I may live them for you,

    every moment,

    free of fear and anxiety,

    I trust you and love you,

    My times are in your hands; deliverme from my enemies [my own thoughts and emotions] and from those that pursue me. Let your face shine on yourservant; save me in your unfailing love. Let me not be put to shame, O Lord, for I have cried out to you; but letthe wicked be put to shame and lie silent in the grave." (Psalms 31:15-17)

    In the Name of Jesus of Nazareth,

    Amen.

    Ask the Holy Spirit to help you clean any idols that are lost in your home. You're having spiritual warfare. You should pray this prayer at night before sleeping. The more Bible you get inside of you, the more peace you will have. It will help if you'll go on YouTube and view some spiritual warfare videos. I like Derek Prince.

    I pray you will find peace and rest for your soul.

  • Richard on Hebrews 10
    Do the verses 26-27 of this chapter mean that someone who was a Christian and after walking away from the Lord for many years, does this mean they cannot ever come back to Jesus and find forgiveness? Of course I knew I was sinning and I knew it was wrong without a doubt and even at times felt guilty but sinned anyway. I have repented and turned away from my life of sin but it seems like i am having a hard time accepting Gods forgiveness, or I can't be forgiven again, because I have that fearful feeling of judgement, can someone want to repent and be told No you have gone to far. I don't know if I am fighting a spiritual battle or I've lost it and just can't bring myself to admit it.

    Respectfully looking for some help here

    The first part of knowing & accepting God's forgiveness is agreeing with God that He has indeed called you to repentance, He has truly forgiven you & accepted you according to His Word, you are in His family now & at great liberty to partake of His goodness & enjoy the new life He has given you. To harbour fears of being unacceptable & in judgement are no longer of the Lord, but of the enemy of your soul who wants to keep you caged & bound in his lies. Continue to read & study the Scriptures with this thought in mind. I always recommend the study of 1 John & especially for you, chapter 5, verse 13: a very positive confirmation to all who have called upon the Name of the Lord for salvation, "These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that YE MAY KNOW (i.e. to know with all assurance) that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God." Do you believe? Have you put your faith in Jesus? Then the promise is that YOU HAVE ETERNAL LIFE NOW & nothing, but nothing, can separate you from God's Love because He now only sees you through His Son, His only begotten still with the nail scarred Hands. Such is His Love for you - Hold onto Him - He's holding onto you.

    Richard, if I could add to Fred's good advice to you. Oftentimes, we Christians look at a Scripture & form a judgement, whether to our favour or not. It's always a good practise to learn as much as you can about a Bible book in regards to the authorship, readership, reasons for writing, etc. Hebrews was written primarily to Jews who had converted to Christ or likely, appeared to do so. So, unlike Gentile converts, these Jews had a lot of the OT already in their minds & so the writer had to deal with much of that. We can't go into that here; as you read this epistle with that in mind, you will some of these hurdles they had to overcome.

    Hebrews 10:26,27, is one of those warnings given. It was directed to some who had or were planning to leave the faith (apostatize); in other words, they wanted to reject Christ & His salvation preferring to return to Judaism. Hence the 'sin' spoken of in v26, is the sin of Christ rejection by turning back to Judaism. So the writer goes on in v28,29, that if those who wilfully disobeyed the Law in times past were executed for their crime, how much more worthy will be the punishment for any who now consider the Sacrifice of Christ as a useless vain offering, showing hatred to God's gracious Work.

    Do you believe the above applies to you brother? I would think not, but you know your circumstances. As well, when these apostates left, they would have not had any convictions about their actions - they were cast off to join the throng of Christ-rejectors, & more so, having also once been partakers of the Spirit's offerings (6:4-6, shows the same warning there also). Your moving testimony of your spiritual struggle tells us that the Spirit of God has been working on you right through your life. No-one who has been cast off from God ever senses conviction & a call to repentance. You have responded to His Call, in spite of self will & obstinacy in the past.

    I always think of David.A man after gods own heart!Yet, he willfully steps out a little,then finds himself running for his life from his own son.His sin started with a look. then a thought ,and then he took the occasion.Then onto murder. These are no small matters. Not unlike Cain killing Abel, David did the same thing, only without His bare hands.A product of the V.Nam era,I am constantly reminded of our sins that were committed their. I did not fly the b52 that bombed and killed civilians in Hanoi, or burn the villages, but I was accused of being wrong when I returned home!The bible refers to the sin that follows us or goes before us. God gave us a free will! That is why we are sinners. When you come to the place in your life, when you realize that there is nothing that you can do to change that,you will fall on your knees and give God the Father the thanks He deserves,You will thank Him for sending his son Jesus Christ for the redemption of mankind.Paul is very adamant, when he talks about our works unto god. You can be one with Father, only through the Son. He who has seen the Son has seen the Father. Christ is the Messiah, In a world ridden with sin, how can those who crucified Him say that His spirit is not alive.No greater love hath a man than he lay down His life for his brother! The Jewish nation will see these things plainly, and confess His holy name!

    Comments by Alex about the great Drops of Blood . Jesus had much anxiety and apprehension about dying for the sins of the world he prayed that the cup might be passed on someway. He prayed if it be possible take this cup from me,But the cup my father has given me shall i not drink it ( his death and suffering ) that he might bring in a new covenant ,a blood covenant, THE LAMB OF GOD. That every man might get a DROP OF BLOOD a measure of faith, a Seed that was the Word made flesh and blood. EVEN BACK IN THE O.T. WHEN THEY MADE A COVENANT IT HAD TO BE DEDICATED WITH BLOOD. Thus the great drops of blood. He knew that his death wd bring in a NEW COVENANT where all men might be saved and washed in his blood, Unto him that has loved us and has washed us from our sins in his own blood.When they piecered him out came the blood and the water symbolic of a BIRTH resulting in a Child our 1st born ,our only son which is the H.G.THEY SHALL LOOK ON ME WHOM THEY HAVE PIECERED AND MOURN FOR HIM AS OUR 1ST BORN OUR ONLY SON THIS NEW COVENANT IS A BIRTHING COVENANT WE ARE ALL GONNA BIRTH CHRIST IN OUR HEARTS AND MINDS THUS THE SON OF MAN,MANKINDS FRUIT UNTO GOD.We have been mourning for 2 days 2000 yrs for our 1st born Our only son which is the H.G. as that which is born of the spirit is spirit the H.G. A NEW INNERMAN THAT NEW HEART AND A NEW SPIRIT. Jeremiah saw all men in travail and birth pains which resulted from the great drops of Blood his stress and anxiety BUT HE OPENED not his mouth,he kept his composure to the end. What the 1st adam destroyed ( in adam we all die,but in Christ) that 2 nd adam we will all live. life is in his Blood those great drops of Blood wd result in our Eternal life . Folks in the carnal ( flesh ) see everything in the flesh but them in the spirit see everything in the Spirit, Walk in the Spirit etc and you will not fulfil the lust of the flesh. Those great drops of blood have spritual implications a New Covenant in his blood, gbu
