Studies in the Epistle to the Hebrews
July 25, 2021
On Sunday nights, we are doing a study on the Epistle to the Hebrews This study is a verse by verse exhortation of this epistle. Below are the verses we have studied so far in the Epistle to the Hebrews:
July 25, 2021 "The Secret To Our Victory"
Text: Hebrews 10:24-25
In these verses, we try to close out our study on Chapter 10. We enter into the many warnings found in the Epistle of Hebrews. In these verses, we come to the fifth warning, the warning of "Despising the Word of God."
July 18, 2021 "The Three Legged Stool"
Text: Hebrews 10:24-25
In these verses, We take on what i call the "Three Legged Stool" of the gracious invitation we see in our text. This message takes on the third legged stool of the importance of true fellowship with other Christians. So we summed up the three legs of this stool of grace as faith, hope, and love.
July 11, 2021 "Gracious Invitation"
Text: Hebrews 10:21-23
In these verses, we are given a gracious invitation that has three parts to it. This invitation hinges on our confidence to reach out to our Savior at anytime without resistance. Each one of these parts began with the words "Let us." In this message, we discuss two of these found in verses 22-23..
June 27, 2021 "Open Invitation"
Text: Hebrews 10:19-20
Our text deals with the practical side of this chapter. It is given to encourage and motivate the Jewish believer of that day. This section is based on what has already been said that Jesus Christ is our High Priest, and we have an open invitation to come to him in prayer at anytime. We focus on three words in these verses, "boldness," "holiest," and "brethren."
June 13, 2021 "The Perfect Sacrifice"
Text: Hebrews 10: 1-18
As we enter into Chapter 10, the writer continues his theme that the perfect sacrifice of Jesus Christ is superior to the imperfect sacrifices of the Old Testament.. The writer mentions three benefits about the superiority of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ: (1.) takes away our sins (2.) it needs not to be repeated, and (3.) opens our way to God in our prayer life. None of these benefits did the Old Testament Jew enjoy like we do today.
March 8, 2020 "Last Will and Testament""
Text: Hebrews 9: 16-28
In this message, we deal with the eternal inheritance that every believer will inherit when we get to Heaven as a result of our relationship with Jesus Christ. The writer uses the analogy of a will and testament in passing that deceased persons inheritance to the designated heirs.
March 1, 2020 "A Greater & More Perfect Tabernacle""
Text: Hebrews 9: 11-15
In this message, we show a great contrast between the deficiencies of the Old Testament tabernacle and the the tabernacle in Heaven. First of all. the tabernacle in Heaven is not made by man but by God, and the Heavenly Tabernacle is able to deal with our sins while the old tabernacle could not. We go in much detail contrasting the temporary blessings from the old sanctuary with the eternal blessings of the new one in Heaven.
February 23, 2020 "The Superior Sanctuary"
Text: Hebrews 9:1-10
In this message, we show a major contract between the old sanctuary or the Old Testament tabernacle than the Heavenly Sanctuary that Christ ministers in. We discuss in details in what we will enjoy as believers of what we will see when we get to Heaven as citizens of a Heavenly city.
I trust these messages will enhance your understanding of God's word, and may you grow in grace as the Holy Spirit enriches you with the truths of His word.
