Hebrews 10:19-39

Hebrews 10:19–39 HCSB
Therefore, brothers, since we have boldness to enter the sanctuary through the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way He has opened for us through the curtain (that is, His flesh ), and since we have a great high priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed in pure water. Let us hold on to the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. And let us be concerned about one another in order to promote love and good works, not staying away from our worship meetings, as some habitually do, but encouraging each other, and all the more as you see the day drawing near. For if we deliberately sin after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a terrifying expectation of judgment and the fury of a fire about to consume the adversaries. If anyone disregards Moses’ law, he dies without mercy, based on the testimony of two or three witnesses. How much worse punishment do you think one will deserve who has trampled on the Son of God, regarded as profane the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and insulted the Spirit of grace? For we know the One who has said, Vengeance belongs to Me, I will repay, and again, The Lord will judge His people. It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God! Remember the earlier days when, after you had been enlightened, you endured a hard struggle with sufferings. Sometimes you were publicly exposed to taunts and afflictions, and at other times you were companions of those who were treated that way. For you sympathized with the prisoners and accepted with joy the confiscation of your possessions, knowing that you yourselves have a better and enduring possession. So don’t throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. For you need endurance, so that after you have done God’s will, you may receive what was promised. For yet in a very little while, the Coming One will come and not delay. But My righteous one will live by faith; and if he draws back, I have no pleasure in him. But we are not those who draw back and are destroyed, but those who have faith and obtain life.

An Invitation by Grace

(Hebrews 10:19-25)
Confidence/Boldness - Literal term: Freedom of Speech
The recognition of the death, and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth, the one called the Christ, through the purity, sincerity, and cleanliness of the heart to obedience.
It is looking forward to the return of Jesus the Christ, relying on the faithfulness of God that through the death, resurrection, and the promise of return to press on.
Hope is looking forward instead of looking back.
This word is used to think of others before self. It is the concept of reflection, examination, and motivation.
The emphasis of this word is not focused on what God does for/to me, but what I do for/to God and His body.

The Warning Clauses

(Hebrews 10:26-31) - Warren Wiersbe Commentary
This word is used as a description of a boat that simply goes with the current. There is no paddle, no direction, and no purpose. As believers drift away from the Word of God, they will find themselves with no purpose, no direction, and greatly confused.
When we begin to drift, doubt takes over. We doubt the faithfulness of God, the promises of God, and the very words of God. Doubting is the most used arrow of the Devil.
Life becomes boring, almost dead like. As the storm or the waves continue to pound we begin to lose passion, desire, and purpose to serve God. We become numb to the nudges and our conscience.
The lifestyle of an individual is the opposite of faith, hope, and love. It brings disgrace to the individual, community, and God. Upon which God will judge us; the heart, the head, and the hands.

The Signing of the New Covenant

This signing is done through the willingness to suffer, be persecuted, and reproached for the lifestyle chosen to be lived. This Covenant is signed through communion, baptism, and membership into a local congregation. It is then lived out through walking with God; individually, collectively, and corporately. This is done through faith, hope, and love.
