Hebrews Pt 50: The Prominence & Preeminence of Christ

Hebrews Pt 50: The Prominence & Preeminence of Christ

[Hebrews 13:8-24]  Jesus Christ is not only prominent in the scripture, He is also preeminent. In the midst of verses that appear to be a “Christian To Do list”, Hebrews 13:8 triumphantly declares, “Jesus Christ, is the same yesterday, today and forever.” This is no accident: it is the Holy Spirit reminding us yet again of the absolute prominence and preeminence of The Lord Jesus Christ. In this final lesson we examine:

  • The center of our faith is Christ, not ourselves (law)
  • The unchangableness (immutability) of God and the stability that brings.
  • The self-existence (aseity) of God. He needs no one and is non-dependent, that’s why we depend on Him for all.
  • What it means to have the heart “established by grace”.
  • The shadows and type of the Old (Law) Covenant versus the realities of the New Covenant. Temporary measures (living under law) yield temporary results. A perfect high priest completing a perfect, finished work yields permanent results.
  • The Conclusion of the Matter: Hebrews 13:20-21

Note: this episode concludes the “Hebrews: The Glory of the New Covenant” series.

How many would like to please God? If you are truly born again, a child of God, deep down you… Continue Reading

Completeness in Christ: We Don’t Need “More”

Completeness in Christ: We Don’t Need “More”

Our completeness is because of Him. Our completeness is every bit as complete as The Lord Jesus Christ is complete. Because He is complete and perfect, we are just as complete and perfect because we are in Him who is infinite completeness and perfection. Our completion is not because of “becoming more like Jesus”, doing all the right things, dying and going to heaven. Our completion IS The Lord Jesus Christ! And we are in Christ because of the Father’s doing (1 Cor 1:30). Continue Reading
