Hebrews Pt 11: The Great Context of The Father’s Love

In this episode, we take some time to step back and see the great context not only of the book of Hebrews, but the entire Bible: The Father’s Love.

Some of the topics covered:

  • The all-important context of the Father and His love, bringing His children home.
  • The Father’s love expressed
  • Why sonship and the repeated references to “son” are so important
  • We have received the Spirit of God’s Son in our hearts and the great difference that makes.
  • God the Father loves us as His children just like He loves Jesus!

Hebrews Pt 10: Jesus IS Qualified to Be Our Perfect High Priest (Chapter 5, part 2)

Hebrews, in so many ways proves that Jesus is fully qualified to our perfect High Priest. This is vitally important, as if He fails on one point, we are lost. We learn that:

  • Qualifications for high priest
  • Jesus is qualified and called to be our High Priest
  • The problem of dullness of hearing and how it hinders our ability to fully understand the greatness of Jesus and His finished work.

Hebrews Pt 09: How We Keep the Sabbath (Hebrews Chapter 5, Part 1)

In this edition, we talk about:

  • What “keeping the rest” (cease from work) means as it applies to dead works versus life in the Spirit.
  • The great salvation of the Bible vs. the myopic salvation of the modern church
  • Jesus our compassionate High Priest and beginning the discussion on why Jesus is fully qualified to be our high priest.

What Pleases God?

Psalm 115:1-3, esp vs 3

(1) Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us,
But to Your name give glory,
Because of Your mercy,
Because of Your truth.
(2) Why should the Gentiles say,
“So where is their God?”
(3) But our God is in heaven;
He does whatever He pleases.

So what pleases God? …

Hebrews Pt 08: Done, So Enjoy It! (chapter 4, part 2)

Because we are already in God’s rest — since He has already finished His work, God calls us to “keep the Sabbath” by ceasing from our works. That Sabbath is TODAY, always now. We always are in God’s rest, ceasing from our work, because God has finished all in Christ. That’s what Hebrews is all about.

Topics covered:

    • What “Sabbath keeping” really means for the believer
    • For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His.
    • “For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His” (Heb 4:10)
    • How we can come boldly before the throne of grace, because of all that Jesus has accomplished.
    • Religion warning

Hebrews Pt 07: It’s Entering GOD’S Rest! (Chapter 4, Part 1)

This is a very powerful, life-changing lesson. Many Christians are somewhat familiar with the fact that Hebrews talks about “rest” a lot. But few understand the revolutionary truth that the “rest” spoken of is God’s rest. And He is resting because He has completely finished His work. Topics covered:

  • It’s about God’s rest, not yours.
  • Why God would rest
  • What God’s rest meant at the creation (Genesis 2)
  • What God’s rest meant to Israel under Joshua’s leadership

Hebrews Pt 06: The Believer at Rest!

In this podcast we take a different direction than our verse-by-verse study of Hebrews. Many people hold to the belief that the believer “entering God’s rest” is something that happens sometime in the future. Some even believe it happens after we die and leave this life!

But as you’ll find out in this clarifying podcast, the believer ALREADY has entered God’s rest — at the very moment he was born again.

Hebrews Pt 05: “The Peril of Unbelief” – Chapter 3

In this installment we dig into Hebrews 3:1-12. Here are the topics covered:

  • Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith and why that makes a difference.
  • The difference between Real Christianity and Religion.
  • The Faithfulness of a Slave vs. the Faithfulness of a SON.
  • A warning to non-believers not to harden their hearts against Jesus.

The Faithfulness of a Slave vs. the Faithfulness of a SON

Hebrews Pt 04: The Offering of The Son so that We Can Be Sons – Chapter 2 (part 2):

Our podcast study, “Hebrews: the Glory of the New Covenant” continues with chapter 2. In this podcast, we cover the second part of the chapter, exploring:

  • 6 reasons why Jesus, by the grace of God, had to taste death for everyone.
  • Of the many things that Jesus accomplished by His perfect person, life, work, sacrifice and death is making us son (heirs) of God. Sons that He is not ashamed of!
