Hebrews Chapt. 6
King James Bible Online ^

Posted on 11/10/2018 7:24:39 PM PST by Faith Presses On

1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,

2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.

3 And this will we do, if God permit.

4 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,

5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,

6 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.

7 For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God:

8 But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned.

9 But, beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that accompany salvation, though we thus speak.

10 For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.

11 And we desire that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end:

12 That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

13 For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself,

14 Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee.

15 And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise.

16 For men verily swear by the greater: and an oath for confirmation is to them an end of all strife.

17 Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath:

18 That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:

19 Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil;

20 Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

TOPICS: General Discusssion
Heavenly Father, thank You for the hope and refuge that we have in Your Son and for giving Him to us as our high priest forever after the order of Melchisedec. Thank You too for revealing Yourself to us through Your Word. Help us in our study of it, and also strengthen Your Church, including all of Your missionaries, pastors and church leaders, and all those being persecuted for Your Son's name, including in North Korea, China, Africa and Muslim lands, and keep Chinese leaders from corrupting Your Word in Chinese-language Bibles and help believers in North Korea and China, including children, to know You and meet in the truth of Your Word. Help us also as we face living in this time and place which is more and more rejecting Your Son and in which coldness is growing in many churches and Satan's temporary grip on this world is increasing, and help us to follow Your direction on how we are to live, and help our leaders in the world, including the Trumps and Pences, and help our nation also so that many hearts here turn back to You and many more souls are saved. Help and protect, too, children who are being abused and children in the womb and those fighting to protect them. In Jesus' name, Amen.

Verses 1 and 2 lay out the Bible’s clear teaching for new Christians. Good luck finding a book that teaches these.

The Rhode Island state flag is based on Hebrews 6:19. Thank you Roger Williams!

Amen. And thanks for posting that Chapter. I had to go to the study Bible to grasp a lot of it, but it is worth the time and work, of course.

Amen, they do! It’s so incredible how much is revealed by the Holy Spirit in God’s Word by what are almost “asides,” or appear to be asides.

You’re welcome. And amen, it is worth it! So much is revealed in Hebrews, but who having written it being a mystery the Lord has left us with, and the letter being addressed chiefly to the Hebrew believers, makes that work to understand it more necessary. I believe I read not too long ago that the author is speculated to be Apollos by some, the one mentioned in Acts.
