ALL THE SO CALLED HEROES OF FAITH MENTIONED IN CHAPTER ELEVEN OF THE BOOK OF HEBREWS LIKE NOAH, ABRAHAM, ISAAC, JACOB, JOSEPH, MOSES, DAVID AND SO ON, WERE COMMENDED FOR THEIR FAITH AND YET NONE OF THEM RECEIVED WHAT HAD BEEN PROMISED.
(Heb 11:39) “These were all commended for their faith, yet none of them received what had been promised.”
YOU SEE, GOD HAD PLANNED SOMETHING BETTER FOR US UNDER GRACE (NEW COVENANT) SO THAT ONLY TOGETHER WITH US WOULD THEY BE MADE PERFECT.
(Heb 11:40) “God had planned something better for us so that only together with us would they be made perfect.”
(Heb 10:14) “Because by one sacrifice He has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.”
ALTHOUGH THEY WERE ALL COMMENDED FOR THEIR FAITH, YET JESUS IS GREATER THAN ALL OF THEM, BECAUSE HE IS THE AUTHOR AND THE FINISHER OF FAITH AND FOR THIS REASON WE ARE ADMONISHED TO FIX OUR EYES ON HIM.
(Heb 12:2) “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
BEAR IN MIND THAT IN THIS LAST DAYS GOD SPOKE TO US THROUGH HIS SON; AND WE’RE ADMONISHED TO LISTEN TO HIS SON. (Heb 1:1) “In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe.”
(Mat 17:5) While he was still speaking, a bright cloud enveloped them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased. Listen to him!”
THE BOOK OF HEBREWS UNVEILS THE FACT THAT GOD MADE HIS SON JESUS CHRIST THE GREATEST.
Please bear with me for using all capital letters for my comments and small letters for my bible verses. You see, Facebook does not allow bold, italics or the use of different fonts. I tried using all caps for my bible verses and small letters for my comments, but it looked awkward. Thank you for your understanding.
