The Activity of the Spirit in the Church, Part 60
September 19, 2013
The Activity of the Holy Spirit in the lives of Church Age believers, part 60.
God in His word warns us, as believers, against the perils of unbelief, and that in the strongest possible terms.
Our portion for studying the perils of unbelief will be Hebrews chapters 3 and 4.
The message, outline and argument of the book of Hebrews.
Many after a time go back to the world, or to formal religion; they become lukewarm to the things of Christ.
Only a deep knowledge of who Christ is and what He does for us will bring us to experience that abundant life .
There is additional knowledge about Christ to be gained, and without it we are not able to go on to full maturity.
Hebrews teaches us that only those who hold fast in faith firm until the end inherit and enjoy the full extent of the great blessings secured for us by Christ.
The one protection from all the dangers is the knowledge of Jesus in His heavenly high priesthood.
Our one need is to know Jesus better.
Jesus can sympathize with us and supply the help we need in the time of trial, Heb 2:17-18.
The priesthood of Jesus is not only superior to that of the Levitical priesthood, but also belongs to an entirely different order from theirs.
Paul (Rom 8:34) and John (1Jo 2:1-2) also testify that Jesus as our Great High Priest and Advocate intercedes for us at the Right Hand of the Father.
