Hebrews 9:14

Hebrews 9:14

From the beginning of the book of Hebrews, the Lord Jesus Christ is elevated above every prophet of God and all angelic beings. He is of greater import that Moses the Law-give, and Joshua, who led the children of Israel into the promised land. The Lord Jesus is far higher in rank and authority than Aaron the great, high priest of the Lord, and His ministry eclipsed the Levitical priesthood.

And here in chapter 9 we read that read more...

Hebrews 9:22

Hebrews 9:22

The old covenant, which the nation of Israel were charged to keep was the Law of Moses. It was brought into effect with a blood sacrifice, and Moses charged the people: this is the blood of the covenant, which God has commanded you to keep.

Hebrews 9:24

Hebrews 9:24

The disciples witnessed Jesus ascending into heaven, and were told He will one day return from heaven in like manner. Today He is seated on God's throne in heaven, while at the same time is present with us, for He promised to be with us to the end of the age.

Hebrews 9:27

In a passage that explains the realities of the new and better covenant that God made with His people, through the shed blood of Jesus Christ - when sin was once and forever put away by His own sacrificial death, we read that it is appointed for all men to die once, and after that comes the judgement - (the judgement of Christians at the Bema seat of Christ; the judgement of Israel and the nations at the end of the tribulation period and the judgement of read more...

Hebrews 9:28

Hebrews 9:28

Christ was made the sacrifice for our sins, which rendered His ministry as the sin-sacrifice final and complete. Christ appeared the first time to put away sins forever and although today He is sitting at the right hand of the Father and one day will appear for a second time, when He comes to set up His kingdom - His sacrifice for sin was made once and for all - and it was completed forever at Calvary.

Hebrews 9:28

Hebrews 9:28

The law of God is the perfect standard He requires from humanity, but it cannot make man righteous nor pardon his sin. So God devised the plan of salvation that would satisfy His justice and impute man with His own righteousness through the full payment of the required price for sin – which is the willing, sacrificial death of the only perfect sacrifice – the Lord Jesus Christ.
