MESSAGE FOR 02-24-2024 HEBREWS CHAPTER SIX

Inspired by the HOLY GHOST, as all books of the Bible, Hebrews is an epistle (letter) from the apostle Paul written to the Hebrews (Jews, Israelites, one and the same) about 60-65 A.D. The Roman emperor Nero was ruling over the provinces during this time and wreaking havoc upon the Body of Christ through mass persecution. The Hebrews that Paul addressed were Jews who were then saved, believed on JESUS CHRIST as their Messiah, and were considering returning to the OT Jewish ways. An apostle is sent by the LORD GOD to be the first person on the scene to preach JESUS CHRIST and establish the individual churches by ordaining elders to oversee them. The true Church is simply, the Body of Christ, those who work together in unity with the common goal to serve and lift up JESUS CHRIST, being led by The HOLY SPIRIT, to bring all glory to ALMIGHTY GOD, no compromise or blending in with the world system. The book of Hebrews consists of thirteen chapters and contains references to the Old Testament, along with instruction, warning, and encouragement for not only the original recipients, but for everyone today. This is why ALMIGHTY GOD makes His Word accessible to everyone folks, because it is the only book in this entire world that can benefit us for eternity and the only book completely inspired by The HOLY SPIRIT, our only true source of wisdom. 

 

Paul’s HOLY GHOST inspired words call upon the converted Jewish Christians to …”go on unto perfection…” He is encouraging the Hebrews who are now part of the Body of Christ to endure in their new found faith in JESUS CHRIST and not to return to the old ways of the Old Testament law. Remember folks, we all have the capacity through JESUS CHRIST to be perfect, despite what many false messengers are preaching. In the book of Matthew 5:48 JESUS CHRIST STATES: Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. In this context, JESUS was speaking to the Jews; however, once JESUS CHRIST shed His blood, died on the cross, and arose the third day, Jew and Gentile alike are free to choose the only Way to salvation (John 14:6). Once we are saved, then ALMIGHTY GOD is our Father, not before that.
The apostle Paul then presents a speculation to the Hebrews who are converted; What if we were to consider: …”leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ…” “Not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.”  Let us consider for a moment what would take place if we were to do these things, if ALMIGHTY GOD will permit. As we read in verse three: And this will we do, if God permit. 
There is a false doctrine being taught and it is called “once saved, always saved”. Yes, once we are saved, we are sealed. In the book of Ephesians 4:30 GOD’S WORD STATES: And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. However, it is possible for a person to fall back into their old ways and turn their back on JESUS CHRIST, through their free will choice. This “once saved always saved” message being preached deceives people into believing they have a license to do whatever they choose, without any consequences. I recently heard a false messenger teach because he was saved, he could go out and rob a bank, and it would not matter. FALSE DOCTRINE!
Paul warns the newly converted Hebrews of the eternal consequences of falling away. We read in verses four through six: For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.  
We read the account of Paul warning the Galatians in the book of Galatians 3:1 O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? I encourage you to read this entire chapter in Galatians, which provides a powerful warning to everyone, Jew and Gentile alike. Of course, I encourage you to read the entire Word of ALMIGHTY GOD! 
In the book of Hebrews 10:28-29 GOD’S WORD STATES: He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?  Paul is warning the converted Jewish Christians about the sins of their forefathers who perished because of unbelief, under the OT law. The LORD makes it clear to all of us: just imagine how much more of a punishment we will endure for eternity if we freely choose to reject JESUS CHRIST? 
The LORD then provides us an illustration within verses seven and eight of bearing good fruit compared to  bearing nothing but thorns and briers. Just as the earth drinks in the rain the LORD sends upon it, brings forth herbs, and receives blessing from the LORD, so does anyone who believes on JESUS CHRIST, and drinks of the Living Word of ALMIGHTY GOD throughout their lives, bearing good fruit. In contrast, someone who freely chooses to reject JESUS CHRIST is compared to bearing nothing but thorns and briers, being in turn rejected by ALMIGHTY GOD and cursed, cast into eternal fire.
We read a powerful illustration from JESUS CHRIST in Matthew 13:24-30 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.  
The false messengers who pose as angels of light will always be exposed by ALMIGHTY GOD, who knows all things! The ones who are “playing church” instead of serving JESUS CHRIST will be exposed as well, in the LORD GOD’S perfect timing! Paul warns  the converted Hebrews to bear good fruit for the kingdom of heaven, and to not fall back into their old ways. This is a warning for all of us folks; to know whether or not you are saved, and to live your life in faith and obedience to ALMIGHTY GOD once you are saved.
Paul also encourages the converted Jewish Christians as we read in verse nine: But, beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that accompany salvation, though we thus speak. The Body of Christ is reminded the LORD is a Just and Righteous GOD, who will not forget they are labouring in love for the kingdom of heaven by ministering to their fellow brothers and sisters in CHRIST. Paul then shares his desire that every one of them works together, trusting in hope in JESUS CHRIST and enduring to the end. We read in verse twelve: That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.
Paul then brings attention to Abraham, who ALMIGHTY GOD began the nation of the Hebrews with, and the genealogy line ends with JESUS CHRIST (Matthew One). The LORD called Abram (renamed Abraham after the LORD formed His covenant with him) out to follow Him when he was 75-years-old, and Abraham was obedient to the LORD. We read in Genesis 12:1-2 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
It is impossible for ALMIGHTY GOD to lie and His Word is His bond; therefore, when the LORD made this promise to Abraham, He swore by His own Name, of which no name is greater. In the book of Genesis 22:16-17 ALMIGHTY GOD STATES: And said, by myself have I sworn, saith the LORD, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son: That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies:
The LORD tested Abraham by asking him to offer Isaac, his only son (son of promise) as a sacrifice. Of course, it was not the LORD’S intention for this to happen, and when the LORD saw the faith and obedience Abraham held for Him, an angel was sent to stop him from carrying this out. As we read in verse fifteen: And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise. 
Paul makes it very clear of the hope we have through the Divine Plan of ALMIGHTY GOD as we read: …”we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:…” We continue with verse nineteen: Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; 
Before JESUS CHRIST died on the cross and arose the third day, only the Jews (Hebrews) could receive atonement for their sins through the Levitical priesthood, beginning with Aaron. The high priest offered sacrifices to the LORD by entering into the Holy of holies, through the veil, to atone for their sins and the sins of the people. Once JESUS CHRIST shed His precious blood, died, and arose from the dead, the OT law was fulfilled, and JESUS CHRIST became our only High Priest, after the order of Melchisedec. Before JESUS CHRIST took His last breath on that cross, He said “it is finished.” Once this took place, the veil in the temple was torn in two, signifying the fulfillment of the Old Testament through JESUS CHRIST.
Through CHRIST alone, Jew and Gentile alike are free to believe on JESUS CHRIST and serve Him, being blessed with forgiveness, salvation, and eternal life. This is a total commitment of our lives folks, no compromises here. Remember, it is possible for a person to backslide, and eventually fall away, condemning themselves to eternal damnation, through their free will choice. (Hebrews 12:1-2)    
Just as The HOLY SPIRIT equipped the apostle Paul to share this powerful message back then, so The LORD GOD is encouraging and warning everyone today. Our time on this earth is short and we all need to know that we are truly saved. I pray this message inspires you to call on the Name of The LORD today, if you have not done so already. NEED A BIBLE?
