Message in the Hebrews (17)

God’s purpose in Jesus Christ shall not fail.

The solemn warning  Paul issues in the Hebrews 6:4 – 6,  must be viewed seriously, and as stated. Warning in the above verses could neither be diluted nor its meaning rationalized. It is as Paul asserts. Our only hope, considering the solemn warning is to, at all cost to our self, hold on to the righteousness by the faithfulness of Jesus Christ. We can be very confident about the sufficiency of what God accomplished on our behalf because His promise is irrevocable. The God’s promise is irrevocable because, He swore by Himself that He would, in the Seed of Abraham – Jesus Christ, bless all people. “that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us.” Hebrews 6:18, NKJV. If we have taken refuge in Jesus Christ, the Son of the promise, we have a firm assurance that God has restored us to Himself as His children. Also, if we wait patiently like Abraham, we can be sure that the conclusion of God’s promise shall not fail.

God, in the body of Jesus Christ on the cross, removed from us the sin which separated us from Him. Isaiah 44:22. Therefore, here and now, we have an immutable hope because Jesus, our High Priest, has entered the Most Holy, the heaven itself; and has opened the way for us into the Most Holy. Now we can confidently come behind the veil, into God’s presence. “This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil, where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.” Hebrews 6:19, 20, NKJV.

The “behind the veil” above, refers to the Most Holy place where God is, and on whose right-hand sits our High Priest – Jesus Christ. Our High Priest has entered the Most Holy and sat down because our salvation is finished and is perfect. God promised so, and He swore by Himself that it would be so. Therefore, the justification and salvation we have by the faithfulness of Jesus Christ, our High Priest, is ours here and now and forever. There is no power, neither in heaven nor on the earth, that could take it away from us.
