Notes on Hebrews 10:32-39 … plus more

Gentlemen,

Click here for the Hebrews 10:32-39 Notes.  In addition, here is an interesting comparison between Hebrews 6 & 10 Parallels.

Last week, Scott B. articulated an insightful connection between the warnings issued in Hebrews to the various levels of sin.  Here is what he wrote as a follow-up to that discussion:

“Hebrews 2:1 warns us about drifting away, and that leads to the deadly ‘D’s’ … Drifting, Doubting, Dullness, and Disobedience.  If we lead this type of life, or fall back into this lifestyle, habits, ways and thought processes, it could bring us into deeper levels of sin.

  • When ‘Drifting’ occurs – Sin is trying our best to hit the target and do right, but always slightly missing the target.
  • When ‘Doubting’ occurs – Transgressions, knowing right from wrong, yet choosing to make a conscious decision to following through or do wrong.
  • When we become ‘Dull’ – Iniquities rear up and our sin comes with a wicked purpose, no longer listening to God or seeking His direction or guidance.
  • ‘Disobedience’ – Rebellion, not needing God, and possibly to the point of elevating ourselves above God.

Certainly there are various levels here, but my point was simply trying to share that our lack of being in the Word, praying, fasting, fellow-shipping, etc., can lead us down the road of various levels of Sin, which we all need to be very careful not to do.”

Thanks Scott! … truly good stuff to ponder between now and the next time we meet, which is not until Monday, June 27th.

In the meantime, I encourage you to keep reading through to the end of Hebrews: chapters 11, 12 and 13 … several times … questions will be posted for chapter 11 prior to when we meet again.

Remember to keep praying for each other.  Consider posting prayer requests as a comment on this blog, or email them to me, and I will forward them to all the guys via email.

Abide in the Vine!
