  • I AM
    To my elect: the commandment to repent is now come. The wicked will now certainly do wickedly as nothing will be restrained from them the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat. Repent and be filled with my Spirit. See that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: have fervent charity among yourselves and have peace in Christ Jesus.

    After a lifetime of serving God wholeheartedly I fell and became involved in a 6 month emotional affair and one night of sin. Since that time I have struggled with the effects of my failing and yet have found that I consistently regardless of constantly shifting circumstances have everything I need. Thanks be to God who Is faithful even when I am not. What He has done for us is truly amazing.l

  • A disciple
    In the context of all that the Apostle wrote up to this point it is for us to discipline and control our mind, our heart, our entire purpose and conduct, in the same way that all the Saints and Prophets before us have followed from the beginning having endured and overcome all contradiction and opposition of the ungodly, by holding the Word of God, the Promise of the Saviour, and seeking to know Him and His Personal Supreme Greatness, as all our joy and purpose for being. The rebukes and warnings against slipping away and hardening of the heart, are words of wisdom and love so that we NOT fall away and end up losing those things we have once labored and suffered for but that we endure to the end, and receive the complete salvation in Christ we wait for. Looking unto Jesus means literally, "Looking away to Jesus:" that is away from all the sin and ungodliness which surrounds us, and weighs us down with grief and torment. And with our "looking away to Jesus " learning from Him how to despise the shame, with a view toward the joy which no man can take from us, when we get their! In other words, to have the strong faith, by firmness of understanding, that can set aside as nothing worth to care about, the shame and humiliation heaped on us by the proud and ungodly and their scorn and abuse and persecution because we know that this is not our long home and we are coming to our rest and reward in the Day of Eternity with our Wonderful Saviour Jesus Christ .

    Jesus looked ahead to the joy and that helped him to endure the suffering that he went through.
  • Irene123
    V. 14 - 'peace' has already been noted; "and holiness, without which, no man shall see the Lord." The Lord Jesus is ALL PURE holiness - the angels are constantly around His throne crying - "HOLY, HOLY, HOLY". After we are saved we strive to live a holy life, but we fall short - sometimes not knowing this; this is why we are to ask His forgiveness everyday. His Love covers a multitude of sins.

    This is such a powerful scripture! It often brings me to a place I need to be...bringing tears to my eyes. Christ on the cross dying in agony , innocent ,choosing with the deepest love possible to give his life for me, a sinner so unworthy and many times weak...I find strength and tremendous encouragement in my Christian walk in these words!!(:

    God's word is truth and fulfillingh
  • BSP
    We should strive to pursue peace with all men.
    There is only one straight narrow path that God will accept To enter the kingdom of God. Faith, obedience to the word, in sincerity in truth. John 14
  • Arthur Gray
    Verse 22 - 24 teaches protocols of engaging heavenly in issues of intercession.
  • Desmond
    Faithful Christians welcome the Lords chastisement because they understand that it is for their own spiritual good.Christians must have the desire to be corrected when they a walking froward to God's word.God is a loving,caring,forgiving, and just God.Faithful Christians need to always be in remembrance of that.

    When I became born again I was translated out of darkness into His marvelous light : I am in the kingdom of God now : His Grace is sufficient and I will continually grow in Grace , which teaches me to deny ungodliness : To fear God is to have a reverential Trust in Him , in His word : to serve Him acceptably means to me is to walk in Faith in His word and leadership of Holy Spirit which is one in the same . It takes His Grace to serve Him acceptably.
  • Jonathan McDade
    The Kingdom we receive is inside us when God grants us piece, and if he has delivered us from evil through prayer in secret then we must remember to honour our loving God the Father so that we are never in the hands of the enemy, it would be foolish not to fear God who can do such amazing things for us. What an amazing big God he is.

    The great cloud of witnesses in 12:1 couldn't refer to the faith heroes of chapter 11 since vs 39 says they never saw their promise, or Christ, other than in shadow. I think it refers to the people in Christ's time who saw the resurrection as they did witness it.
    once you get born again you recieves the kingdom which can not be shaken
  • Salome for verse 2
    verse 2 says "Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God."the joy that was set before him made him endure the cross, He had a purpose, he loved doing what would bring his purpose to accomplishment despite the cost, dear friends let it not be in vain, be a beneficially of the blood shed on the cross. And in our daily lives, let us emulate Christ Jesus, loving the work we do despite the toil and cost, the bible says that and in everything we do we do it as for the Lord,it will be easy while done out of love,the grace of God will always be sufficient for us, God bless you.
  • Lilian
    God is longing to bless us and heal us. Jesus already restores our Soul and have forgiven our sins when Jesus redeemed us on the cross. But sometimes because of our disobedience we are chastened. When the storm comes into our life we dont know what to do if we dont have Christ in our life. Jesus is the only Savior, He who opens his door for him will be saved. We must show our obedience to his words in order for us to see the Glory of God as his mercy and love endureth forever. What a promising God and always faithful to his words. Thanks to Jesus and keep praising his blood as his precious blood washed our ungodly sins. Praise you Lord and thanks for your blood i will love you Jesus forever until rapture. Amen
  • Michael Babarinde for verse 2
    Hebrews 12:2 KJV 'looking the act of directing the eyes to something and perceiving it visual ly. unto Jesus ...... ' is the blessedness of mourning.
  • Judy
    V6 to me means that when we sin intentionally or unintentionally, God withdraws His grace from us for a season, so that we know we cannot do without Him. This leads to repentance and a renewed desire for His word, prayer and holy living that His holy name may once again be glorified in our lives. Woe to you whose sins go unpunished know it I not well with you. Later a recompense shall be made.
  • Isabella for verse 14
    holiness is a lifestyle which differs dramatically from our mannerof life before we were saved.
  • The difference in the interpretations of "author and finisher " is interesting. I found this page because it dawned on me that the writer may have meant the author and finisher of our faith as in our "Faith, " meaning the Faith of Christianity, rather than the saving faith of the individual. I 'm not completely sure what weight this might hold, because truthfully both are equally as profound, nevertheless, they encompass two entirely different ideas as well as ideals. I 'm also not sure that it could threaten the doctrine of the security of the saints or the doctrine of election, but it is one passage that is used to strengthen the positions of both aforementioned doctrines, though obviously not the only passage. Just interesting.
  • Paul oyewole oladele for verse 6
    there is need for more revelation of Gods word
  • Dr. Aderonmu Peter for verse 14
    Hebrew 12:14 is a verse, a weapon, a tool, an artillery, a secret but influential weapon, a shield around an obedient child of God....... most importantly a dose for long life and enabler to enjoy prosperity. Thanks
  • S.k.f Zwane pastor for verse 2
    Lord Jesus had faith and we should follow His footsteps and run a good raise in order to win at the end.
  • Lillie Hall
    It made me feel like if we can be obedient to man than certinely we can be obedient to our heavenly Father, for he is the one who created us and will save us from Sin and All that is not Righteous.
  • Valerie for verse 1
    To realize the most important thing we can do in our life is to make our peace with God, to also realize that the answer is in our response. It is not too late.
  • Nd Okorougo for verse 2
    Indeed,we christians should learn from the master Himself,not from our preacher of nowadays,who some are not even followers of Christ,though admires Him, but they have their own personal doctrines,doctrine of men,doctrine of church, which are mostly self centered.watch for their fruit,for by it you will determine if the three is good.And by their fruit you should know them.shalom!
