1 For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.
All of the sacrifices were nothing compared to The sacrifice we have been given. Christ was perfect in life and His human, fleshly death. He is our way to that perfection.
2 For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins.
There is no once saved always saved. When animal sacrifice was in place or even with Christ. When we repent in Christ name, those past sins are gone. Our Father doesn't want to hear anything more about them. What our Father wants is a change of heart. He wants us to get into His Word to come to an understanding of what sins are and to get out of doing them. Ignoring His Word after repentance won't count, ignorance isn't bliss in this case.
3 But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year.
Today, in repentance daily, by the blood of Christ, we are saved.
4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.
The ordinances of blood sacrifice is no more. Christ Jesus was the last sacrifice, once and for EVERYONE. Repent today and become new!
5 Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me:
Christ Jesus, the last sacrifice. Gods plan of salvation for all.
6 In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure.
God doesn't need, nor does He want it. He gave Himself for our sins. If you chose those things over Him, you are of satan. You chose to follow satan when you reject the gift of salvation, through the blood of Christ and the cross. The last sacrifice for all time. You need Him and His Word if you believe other wise.
7 Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.
The full measure. The Bible is about One that is and the same that comes again soon. Within it is everything we need to know about in these flesh body's. Don't let anyone tell you it's about history or has mistakes all through it. If you study, you will see what Bible to use and what's junk, you will see what was, IS and is to come. 2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. I can give you a hint as to what is junk people use as a "bible" today. It's the most selling "bible" today. It's what most "churches" use today. It's why so many are falling away. They lack the hunger to seek The Truth and will take whatever may come to the ear. It's why so many traditions look so "holy" and why so many follow false doctrines of humans instead of The Word of God.
8 Above when he said,
Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest
not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law;
Psalms 40:6-8 6 Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required. 7 Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me, 8 I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.
9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second.
The first= animal blood sacrifice is done away with and the second, Christ Jesus finalizes the ordinance. God will only accept repentance now. All you have to do is believe in Christ and that He died for you. Repent of your sins in Christ Jesus name and it's done. You are clean of your past and our Father doesn't want to hear any more about them. Get into His Word as to understand good from bad, right from wrong. Stay in His Word EVERYDAY!
10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
That's it, It's done! Christ died for you and me. What have you done for Him? Have you even thought about your REAL future?
11 And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:
Even today, so called pastors will do these things. Not many peach The Truth, but go by a curriculum sent by an organization.
12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;
God came in the flesh, died for us all as the LAST sacrifice. Right hand = action. Repent in His name and it is done!
13 From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.
The enemies of God are those that have heard, but reject Him. They look for any reason to follow the world and evil instead. This even falls under some "churches" of today. They don't like The Truth so they make up their own. They follow another god. They follow the "prince of the air".
14 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.
Repented in Christ name? [IF] yes, you are sanctified. Now get busy and get in His letter to you, The Bible. Don't waste His offering!
15 Whereof the Holy Spirit also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,
Want to find out? Hold on or go to the next verse yourself.
16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;
Those that love God will do their best to seek Him out. All of Him! In the Millennium age EVERYONE will understand those laws completely. Something to think about. That Millennium age to me is really ONE day. Just saying! 2 Peter 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. [ Is time really relevant at this point? I think not! ]
17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.
Repent, hold to Gods Laws and show you love Him enough to want all of Him in your life, God will keep you with Him forever. Today though eternity. That's right! God's Laws stands today just as they always have. This isn't a world of free-for-alls, unlike what satan would want you to believe. There is NO such thing as "once saved always saved."
18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.
If you have repented today, they are done away with and our Father doesn't want to hear anymore about them. Learn from them and move on.
19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,
Your sins are only forgiven through the blood of Christ. You don't need be "baptized" as that is an action to follow Christ. An outwardly showing. Your inwardly soul needs the blood of Christ. Repent in His name and you have entered into The Holy of Holies.
20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;
Christ is alive and He has opened The Way up for us. All we have to do is accept Him and step on in. His flesh death has given you The Way to life. When that veil was rent = torn from top to bottom, it allowed anyone that wants God in their life The way to do just that. Christ defeated death = satan when He said "it is finished". All you have to do is repent and have that change of heart. Seek Him out in His letter to you The Bible.
21 And having an high priest over the house of God;
The High Priest is Christ Himself. Who's in your Church? Who's in your mind? You're the only one that can answer that.
22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.
All of nothing! Repent and have that change of heart, where that blood washed you clean, walk like it in your actions. NEW DAY!
23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)
God doesn't waver with His Words. What He says, He means! A Christian should do the same. You believe? Then walk like it!
24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:
Keeping Christ to yourself isn't Christian. Get out there and let others know about The blessings you have in Christ Jesus.
25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
This is why we should yoke ourselves with those in same mind. So we can hold to The Truth of Christ return. The lies are everywhere out there. Those of you that are waiting on that great escape had better come to the reality of what that means. We that hold to The Truth have already escaped. Empty your minds of what you have been taught and go to 2 Thessalonians 2.
26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
With the understanding of sin, the rights and wrongs you had better follow the right. You have no excuses. Ignorance isn't bliss, nor is laziness. STUDY GODS WORD!
28 He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:
Under the law of Moses, if you did wrong your punishment was witnessed by two or three people. If you see justice you see consequences. Where have we gone today? There is no true rule of law, especially with this current administration. Today, wrong is right and right is wrong, Sound familiar? Isa. 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden underfoot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?
30 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.
Stand back and watch The Lord at work. I see it every time someone wrongs one of His. Doesn't mean not to protect yourself! Psalms 144:1 Blessed be the Lord my strength which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight:
31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
When you see Him, it's too late. Do something about your life NOW!
32 But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions;
"Illuminated" = awaken to The Truth of God's Word. When you hold The Truth, the attacks will come from every direction. Hold to it, Be salt! Christians aren't poor me baby's. We are can do children of God. Ever tried to tell a friend or family member what God says and they try to turn the tables on you? They attack you because you're just excited to let the world know what The Spirit has shown you. Well God has given it to you for good use. It's to make you stronger and to help others come out from stupidity or ignorance. Don't sway away. In battle we attack!
33 Partly, whilst ye were made a gazingstock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, whilst ye became companions of them that were so used.
When the enemy attacks, it's always good to be with those of the same mind. I appreciate everyone one of you in this same mind = believe. God Bless You ALL!
35 Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.
You a Christian or a bench warmer once a week? Christians are Christians EVERYDAY and are salt. It's going to sting those that reject Truth. Continue to do the work God has set for you to do and let the chips fall. The end holds reward for some and punishment for others. Our Father is just and we all get what we deserve.
36 For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.
EVERYTHING is on our Fathers time, not our own. Stay focused and continue to do those things you have learned of by The Word of God. Many people today do things having no idea they are against God. For most, they lack the love for God to study His Word in order to have the just and correct way of thinking our Father would have from us. Ignorance won't be an excuse when we are face to face with God, if you had His Word handy all along.
37 For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.
Life is really so short. Why not make the best of those things you do in life and see they are what God would have you do. His return is upon us rather you want to see it or not. We are the last generation and will see everything He told us come to pass. Open His Word, Repent and see the blessings you have and will have to come.
38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.
Have The Truth and follow it? Wonderful, Don't let go of it and don't stop following Christ. Repent if you do and set yourself back on track.
39 But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.
"Perdition" are those that fall back to the ways of death. Stay focused! Stay in God's Word as to follow the ways of good. The world is twisting it today. So many have fallen into the belief of "coexist", new age believes, homosexual activity being of God, but is in fact of satan. Christlam/Chrislam, prosperity preaching, abortions, etc. Look these up and stay awake.
