Hebrews Study. Part 11. 6:1-12 (53 min)

Title: Hebrews Study. Part 11. 6:1-12 (53 min)
Message Description:

The sweeping message of Hebrews can’t easily be missed if we’re looking at Jesus. He’s been the focus all along and he’ll be the focus throughout. He remains so today. We’re called to mature in him. God’s whole covenant people are called here, and from the close of chapter five, to go on to maturity in the New Covenant.

No believer can fall away. Never has, never will. No Christian can ever be unborn again. Period. This passage makes it clear by verse nine that his speech has its purposes in the lives of his hearers, but that it’s not at all to impugn upon the saving work of their God and Savior, Jesus Christ. We’ll look to Paul in Colossians 2:16-3:2 and in Galatians 3:21-4:7 to introduce Hebrews 6. To see God’s work in his people. Those discussed at length in chapters three and four of Hebrews who came out of Egypt in the Exodus all saw, ate, partook of, and were enlightened by God, yet they did not all believe. This does not mean they were regenerate or of the elect and fell away from God. They fell away as unbelievers. Our author here warns of people doing the same in the New Covenant. He invites his readers here to grow up into Christ. To grow up into the New Covenant. He warns of those who’ll turn back, not believe, and will be lost.
