A disciple's comment on 3/11/2017, 10:23am...

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.

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.

HEB 12:28 WHEREFORE WE RECEIVING A KINGDOM WHICH CANNOT BE MOVED LET US HAVE GRACE WHEREBY WE MAY SERVE GOD ACCEPTABLY WITH REVERENCE AND GODLY FEAR----TITUS 2:11 FOR THE GRACE OF GOD THAT ---- BRINGETH SALVATION ---- HATH APPEARED TO ALL MEN 2:12 ----TEACHING US---- THAT DENYING UNGODLINESS AND WORLDLY LUSTS WE SHOULD LIVE SOBERLY RIGHTEOUSLY AND GODLY IN THIS PRESENT WORLD

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

 


Michael C.'s comment on 8/18/2016, 12:15pm...

"Father God giving this instruction ... was to make them see their weaknesses 'to be holy as he is ... holy in the same manner as I am ... so father GOD says to be holy as he is to the world to make them see their inability to be, so they can turn to HIM in dependence as children would turn to their fathers so that it should be imputed to them." Please forgive me for strongly disagreeing with the whole premise behind those kinds of statements. I will tell you why I so strongly feel that this is NOTHING of what is meant by the command, to "BE HOLY, FOR I AM HOLY." Let us go back to the very thing Satan used to beguile the woman: namely "you shall not surely die for God doth know, that when you eat thereof, you shall be as gods knowing good and evil." In other words, He is denying you something that you have the right to have and you will be like Him, if you take it for yourself. The evil and perverted idea, that God is saying anything to us, to keep us down, and to prove that He is God is the thought of the devil. This thinking is the perversion and lie from the father of lies and NOTHING AT ALL of the truth for the Lord said of him that he was a liar from the beginning, and the father of it, and has NEVER STOOD IN THE TRUTH. So what is it that Christians should now think, that God does or says anything to us, to deliberately humble us, to make Himself be great, and demand worship from us? like they suggest, in saying, He gives us commandments, that He knows we cannot keep! That is a lie from the devil, and slanderous perversion, and NOTHING AT ALL standing in the truth. God gave commandments for us to live by them for we live by every word proceeding from His lips. Keeping God's commandments transcends everything to do with human abilities or wisdom for the simple truth, that we can do nothing without Him. Any thought that would suggest, that God in any way bows down to man's misguided and darkened understanding of himself, or what he is, or what he can do cannot reconcile to the truth, that He knows all things, and NEEDS NOT MAN to testify to Him! It is a purely heathen concept, that makes man anything to stand on his own without God and therefore, cannot be rightly considered as a leg to stand on, in Christian thinking: for we know already, that God is God, and that He alone is God. But the commandment is spiritual, and concerning the moral consciousness, which acts out of what kind of spirit is within the man: and therefore, nothing at all to do with if God thinks we are able to do it: WE ARE COMMANDED BY HIM WHO IS HIGHER THAN THE HIGHEST, TO DO IT! In this then, I think, is a very subtle deceit and misleading turn of words that subverts faith out of a pure heart, and covers the truth in the conscience of men and causes them to not know the blessings of God for obedience: an age-old trick of the devil to get men to sin, so they can't be blessed and to pervert the words of God, so they don't obey. God does not give us commandments, so we can "see that we are completely unable to do them." That is the error! the truth is, that He gives us commandments, in order for us to learn how to be His sons and daughters so that in our conduct we should be replicating His character and natural disposition and to do so now, out of love for Him, who first loved us we are the more expected to do what is right. He does not do all that He has done, to show us that we can't do them but to give us an example, to follow in His steps. I understand, that this is a most popular form of teaching in modern Churchdom but if we hope to be found of Him in that day, in peace and true holiness and not be ashamed at His coming then we had better stay strictly with the doctrine of Jesus, and His Apostles and Prophets in the Bible and beware of all other kinds of Glad Tidings, than what they delivered us. I hope the person who wrote the verse for the day, can take this as teaching of a better way, and not as a personal attack WHICH IT IS NOT!

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's comment on 12/12/2015, 11:09am...

Verse 22 - 24 teaches protocols of engaging heavenly in issues of intercession.

 


Desmond's comment on 11/25/2015, 3:42am...

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.

 


Jonathan McDade's comment on 11/06/2015, 7:09am...

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.

 


ROY's comment on 11/05/2015, 7:01pm...

AFTER SALVATION, WE MUST LEARN TO FIGHT SATAN WHICH HATES US AND GOD...SATAN OFFERED THE KINGDOMS OF THIS WORLD TO OUR LORD.....THE WORLD, THE FLESH, THE DEVIL WE WILL BE FIGHTING TILL WE DIE OR CHRIST COMES
THE WORLD (RICHES OF WORLD) THE FLESH (OUR SINS, SELFISH DESIRES, EVIL THOUGHTS ETC) THE DEVIL (FALSE TEACHERS AND WOLVES IN SHEEP'S CLOTHING ETC

 


Yeahbut's comment on 10/25/2015, 5:17pm...

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.

MockingBird's comment about verse 2 on 10/04/2015, 5:31am...

Jesus is the author the beginning and Jesus is the finisher the end of our faith : He is the first and the last : Jesus knew when He came to earth that He was on a mission : as I , we are ,Jesus suffered for His faith in His and our Father : When we I suffer for righteousness sake , there is a reward : Looking unto the end ,focusing on the prize : I have fought a Good fight , I have finished my course , I have kept the faith : there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness and having fellowship with my Heavenly Father and my Lord Jesus Christ throughout eternity : Which to me is PRICELESS !!! In thy Presence is fullness of Joy !!!

 


Lilian's comment on 8/04/2015, 11:01pm...

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

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's comment on 6/21/2015, 2:25am...

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's comment about verse 14 on 6/10/2015, 12:48am...

holiness is a lifestyle which differs dramatically from our mannerof life before we were saved.

 


Rob's comment about verse 2 on 6/09/2015, 11:59pm...

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.
