One Need

Such a high priest meets our need—one who is holy, blameless, pure, set apart from sinners, exalted above the heavens.
Hebrews 7:26

February 27, 2012

He always lives to intercede for them

Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.
Hebrews 7:25

February 25, 2012

An Indestructible Life

And what we have said is even more clear if another priest like Melchizedek appears, one who has become a priest not on the basis of a regulation as to his ancestry but on the basis of the power of an indestructible life.
Hebrews 7:15-16

February 24, 2012

Still in the Body

One might even say that Levi, who collects the tenth, paid the tenth through Abraham, because when Melchizedek met Abraham, Levi was still in the body of his ancestor.
Hebrews 7:9-10

February 23, 2012

An Anchor for the Soul

We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, where Jesus, who went before us, has entered on our behalf. He has become a high priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.
Hebrews 6:19-20

February 22, 2012

Fled to the Hope

God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope offered to us may be greatly encouraged.
Hebrews 6:18

Numbers 23:19; Titus 1:2; Hebrews 6:18

February 21, 2012

Puts an end to all argument

Men swear by someone greater than themselves, and the oath confirms what is said and puts an end to all argument.
Hebrews 6:16


Remind them of these things, charging them before the Lord not to strive about words to no profit, to the ruin of the hearers.
2 Timothy 2:14

J. Vernon McGee note on : "Perhaps when we get to heaven, we will find it true that there are three sides to every question: your side, my side, and the right side."

Constant Use

But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.
Hebrews 5:14

February 19, 2012

Do you see the Day approaching?

And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.
Hebrews 10:24-25

But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
2 Peter 3:7

February 18, 2012

Rejoice in the Work of Your Hands

And there you shall eat before the LORD your God, and you shall rejoice in all to which you have put your hand, you and your households, in which the LORD your God has blessed you.
Deuteronomy 12:7

February 17, 2012

He learned obedience from what he suffered

Although he was a son, he learned obedience from what he suffered and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him and was designated by God to be high priest in the order of Melchizedek.
Hebrews 5:8-10

February 16, 2012

With Loud Cries and Tears

During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission.
Hebrews 5:7

February 15, 2012

It has not yet been revealed what we shall be

Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.
1 John 3:2

1 Timothy 6:16; 1 John 3:2

February 14, 2012

Boldly for Mercy

For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
Hebrews 4:15-16

February 13, 2012

Passed Through the Heavens

Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.
Hebrews 4:14

February 12, 2012

Dividing Soul and Spirit

For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
Hebrews 4:12

February 11, 2012

Make Every Effort

For if Joshua had given them rest, God would not have spoken later about another day. There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; for anyone who enters God's rest also rests from his own work, just as God did from his. Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall by following their example of disobedience.
Hebrews 4:8-11

February 10, 2012

His Work Has Been Finished

Now we who have believed enter that rest, just as God has said,
“So I declared on oath in my anger,
‘They shall never enter my rest.’”
And yet his work has been finished since the creation of the world.
Hebrews 4:3

Psalm 95:11; Romans 1:20; Hebrews 3:11; Hebrews 4:3

February 9, 2012

Combine It With Faith

For we also have had the gospel preached to us, just as they did; but the message they heard was of no value to them, because those who heard did not combine it with faith.
Hebrews 4:2

Romans 10:17; Hebrews 4:2

February 8, 2012

Encourage One Another Daily

But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness.
Hebrews 3:13

February 7, 2012

See To It

See to it, brothers, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God.
Hebrews 3:12

February 6, 2012

We Are His House

But Christ is faithful as a son over God's house. And we are his house, if we hold on to our courage and the hope of which we boast.
Hebrews 3:6

John 14:2; John 14:23; 2 Corinthians 5:1; Hebrews 3:6

February 4, 2012

Fix Your Thoughts

Therefore, holy brothers, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, the apostle and high priest whom we confess.
Hebrews 3:1

February 3, 2012

Suffered When Tempted

Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.
Hebrews 2:18

February 2, 2012

Made Like His Brothers

For surely it is not angels he helps, but Abraham's descendants. For this reason he had to be made like his brothers in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people. Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.
Hebrews 2:16-18

February 1, 2012

Copies

And according to the law almost all things are purified with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no remission. Therefore it was necessary that the copies of the things in the heavens should be purified with these, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.

For Christ has not entered the holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us; not that He should offer Himself often, as the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood of another—He then would have had to suffer often since the foundation of the world;

but now, once at the end of the ages, He has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself. And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment, so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.
Hebrews 9:22-28
