GOD'S PROMISE


THE EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO THE HEBREWS

CHAPTER 6


GOD'S PROMISE TO US

GOD'S PROMISE TO US STUDY ON GOD'S PROMISE TO US VERSES WITH GOD'S PROMISE TO US MESSAGE FROM GOD'S PROMISE TO US TRUTH
 

          Welcome back again! It’s another great day to share some more Daily Bread. Last time, we talked about Jesus as High Priest and we talked a little bit about understanding and habits.

          Today, Paul switches topics. In so many words, he tells the Hebrews:


We’re going to move on now, and change subjects,
from the teachings of Christ, let’s talk about perfection.
We’re not going to discuss repentance from dead works again,
or Faith in God, or baptism and laying on of hands,
or resurrection or judgment.

And this will we do, if God permit.
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 go astray,
to renew them again to repentance;
because they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh,
and put Him to an open shame.
 

          This is a very sensitive thing that Paul is talking about. There are so many people who believe that they’ve ruined the hope of their salvation because sin in their life continues, even after they’ve been saved or reborn. Nothing could be further from the truth. Sin is sin because you know you’re doing something wrong. If you didn’t, it wouldn’t be sin. When you sin, subconsciously you’re saying, I know this is wrong, and I’m gonna do it anyway. Yes, it’s ugly and shameful and you downright hate to admit it, but it’s the TRUTH. Somehow, we don’t want our sins to be “bad” sins, but we can live within our own skin more comfortably if we think that we only commit “good” sins.

          Friend, there’s no such thing. Sin is sin. It’s all bad. If you look at sin in general, you could probably say that the majority of sins are repeat offenses. Unfortunately, when you’re saved, or reborn, sin doesn’t magically disappear from life. You don’t become perfect. But your attitude, and your determination to avoid and reject temptation is what changes. You still have the sin “gene” from our earthy ancestors Adam and Eve, but when you’re saved, you decide to manage your inheritance differently. Falling away, or going astray, as Paul is speaking of it here, would have to be blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, or in other words, permanently rejecting or renouncing God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. That is the only unforgivable sin. Everyone sins, and I’ll tell you one of my favorite things again, Your sin can’t possibly outdo God’s Grace. Don’t ever forget that. (You can read more about the “falling away” that will happen near the End Times in 2 Thessalonians, Chapter 2.)

GOD'S PROMISE TO US LESSON WITH GOD'S PROMISE TO US EXPLANATION


For the earth which drinks in the rain that falls often on it,
and brings forth herbs suitable for them by whom it is cultivated,
receives blessing from God:
But that which bears thorns and briers is rejected,
and is near to being cursed; whose end is to be burned.
But, beloved, we are confident of better things of you,
and things that go along with salvation, though we talk this way.

For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labor of love,
which you have showed toward His name,
including that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister.
 

          A moment ago, I reminded you that when you’re saved, you don’t become perfect, but you change inside. Now, at the beginning of this chapter, Paul said to the Hebrews, Let’s talk about perfection. What did he mean? Even Paul knew that nobody’s perfect. Many times in the Bible, the word perfect means complete, or mature. It’s something that a Christian strives for. It’s a day to day goal to be like Jesus.

          A major part of our maturity, or completeness, or quest for perfection, is our hope of everlasting life with our Lord, through the grace of God and the death of Christ. Paul describes below how God knew that it would be tough on us in this ungodly world to steadily pursue this hope, so He made us a Promise.
 

And we wish that every one of you show the same purpose
to the full assurance of hope to the end:
That you don’t be slow,
but followers of them who through faith and patience,
inherit the promises.

For when God made promise to Abraham,
He couldn’t swear by anyone greater than Him,
So He swore by Himself, saying,

Genesis 22:17
... That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven ...

And so, after Abraham had patiently endured, he obtained the promise.
For men truly swear by the greater:
and a promise for confirmation is a comfort to them.
 

GOD'S PROMISE TO US INFORMATION WITH GOD'S PROMISE TO US MEANING

Think of the truth of this. When someone assures you of something, if they give you their “word,” you’re more likely to believe they’ll keep their promise. In Matthew 5:33-36, Jesus says not to swear (make promises) at all, but let your word be only yes or no. Why is that? Because it’s better not to promise at all, than to break a promise, and if you “swear to God” you are promising to God, which is truly a promise you never want to break. Man’s promises have been broken since the beginning of time, but God’s Word is never broken.


God, who was willing more abundantly
to show the heirs of promise the honesty of His Word,
confirmed it by a promise:

That by two certain things,
in which (#1) it was impossible for God to lie,
(and #2) we might be assured with comfort,
who have fled for protection to obtain the hope set before us:

Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul,
both sure and unchangeable,
and which enters into that within the veil
Where the first one which is Jesus, has entered for us,
made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.
 

          Let’s talk about the “veil” for a moment. In the Old Testament, inside the tabernacle, and behind the veil, was the most holy place where the ark of the covenant was, upon which was the Lord's presence. The most holy place, was God’s private room, with the veil, sort of like a door between God and the children of Israel. The Hebrews, being passionately dedicated to all the ordinances of the tabernacle, and sticklers for following rules, knew that nobody but Moses and the high priest were allowed inside the veil, and then, only when God said so. So Paul uses this to show how Jesus removes the veil, or opens the door so that we can be with God. Also, in Exodus 34:34, when the glory of the Lord was shown to Moses, his face became so brilliant that the children of Israel could not look at him, so he wore a veil. The veil is a symbol of man’s separation from God, but when a person turns to the Lord, their blindness is taken away, the veil is done away with, and you can clearly see that Christ is the New Way. You can read more about the veil in 2 Corinthians, Chapter 3. The title of that Daily Bread study is Reflections.

          To sum up our study today, you could say that our eagerness and our hope to obtain God's promise to us is what makes us mature, complete, perfect. Remember, this kind of perfection doesn’t mean flawless, as Jesus was, it means that we’re striving to be like Him. Next time, Paul tells us the story of Melchisedek and how Jesus is a priest after the order of Melchisedek. Don’t miss it, right here at Daily Bread.
