I left out the “us” because that is inserted by the translators and should not be there. Mark that Paul does not say that all this could ever happen; but that, if it could, the person concerned would be like apiece of ground which brought forth nothing but thorns and briers. The most solemn warnings against apostasy, and the declaration that total apostasy would be fatal, are not inconsistent with the great truth of the safety of all true saints. Is that as great an exploit as subduing kingdoms? Those who doubt the truth of the gospel, or who say they do, are often found believing historical statements that are not half as well proved. It is from this sentence that I am sure that the Holy Ghost had a signification, a meaning, a teaching, for every item of the ancient tabernacle and temple; and we are not spinning fancies out of idle brains when we interpret these types, and learn from them important gospel lessons. The apostles and the other followers of our Lord constantly bore witness to his miracles and his resurrection. Does not every day bring us nearer to the coming of the Lord? By his own death, Christ broke that evil power which brought death into the world with its long trail of woe. He takes away the type because the great Antitype has come. Yet God did save him, and from him there sprang “so many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable.”. If you are without chastisement, you may bear the name of sons, but you are not really so; you are mere professors. Upon this supposition, God’s utmost has been tried, and has failed. To start, and to make a spurt now and then, is easy enough; but to keep on, is trying to every spiritual muscle; and only God can enable you to do so. It was “by faith” that Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain” presented. Sarah’s faith was not like Abraham’s, yet it was true faith, and therefore her name appears among faith’s worthies. Note: These verse by verse expositional notes by C H Spurgeon represent a compilation from various writings including his individual expositions on this epistle and thus there is some duplication and occasional statements that will seem to begin in the middle of a sentence. Hebrews 13:20 Bloodshedding, The Hebrews 9:22 Blood, The Exodus 12:13 Blow at Self-Righteousness, A Job 9:20 Bottle in the Smoke, A Psalm 119:83 Bread for the Hungry Deuteronomy 8:3 Broken Column, The Luke 9:61 ; C: Call of Abraham, The Hebrews 11:8 Call to the Unconverted, A Galatians 3:10 Canaan on Earth Deuteronomy 11:10-12 The Scriptures are very jealous on this subject; how different from the language of many who seem desirous to exclude God from being the author of his own word! In vv 38, 39 faith lay in the future to them far more than it does to us, for Christ has now come, and we look hack to that glorious appearing of our Lord and Savior, but they had altogether to look forward. All but two that came out of Egypt died in the wilderness; only Joshua and Caleb were faithful among the faithless found. Let there be no thought of going back, but may there rather be a distinct advance! We are expecting something better than we have yet seen. By his one sacrifice he has ended all the fruitless labor of the ages; and, now, as many of us as have believer] in him have all the benefits of his perfect work. Evidently he and they are well agreed. Answer: Hebrews 6:4–6 states, “It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit, who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age and who have fallen away, to be brought back to repentance.” Well might the apostle say that “both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one.”. Many and many a time have persons written to me or spoken with me and said, "Did you intend in the sermon to make a personal allusion to me? By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace. 4to. The work by which they might live for ever, the finished work by which they might be saved, they refuse, and so they never enter into God’s rest. God grant we may be spared from such a dreadful crime! It will be better than any amulet or talisman that the ancients ever wore. Amen. Commentary on Hebrews. Jesus also comes very near to us because he was not literally heard and answered. You know that there are some who preach a temporary salvation; they say that you may be in Christ today and out of Christ tomorrow, that you may be saved by grace at one hour, but damned by sin the next. we are sometimes so base as to be ashamed of him; but he is never ashamed to call us brethren. Oh joy! This glorious message is for you, beloved, if you believe in Christ. Upon a throne of light, Faith brings us into this rest, even as unbelief shut them out. By the work of the Holy Ghost within the Virgin Mary, the blessed body of Christ was “prepared” so that he ought be God and man in one person, and so might bring an offering acceptable unto God. Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate. 1. At the death of Christ, that veil was rent from the top to the bottom, so now there is nothing to keep us back from the mercy-seat. In fact, the great mass of those who perish are those who neglect the great salvation, —. He cannot come to a God who to his own mind is non-existent; he must believe that he is. Come, then, why should we hesitate, wherefore should we delay our approach to his throne of mercy? Hence, there is now no tabernacle, no temple, no holy court, no inner shrine, the holy of holies. Glory be to his holy name for ever and ever! The Lord grant us grace to be ready for our share in that glorious consummation, for Christ’s sake. Christ, the center of the celestial chairs, is also the center of all the bands of true singers that are yet here below. It is faith that muzzles the mouth of death, and takes away the power of the sepulcher. This volume collects his thoughts on Hebrews in a commentary format, with illustrations and applications culled from his sermons and writings. May the Lord graciously grant to each one of us that grace which shall abide the fire! Fornication was the special sin of that age: in fact, so common was it that the heathen did not reckon it to be a sin at all. Spurgeon Commentary: Hebrews collects his thoughts on the epistle in a commentary format, including sermon illustrations and applications culled from his sermons and writings. In the days of his flesh, he not only offered up prayer, but “prayers and supplications,” — many of them, of different forms, and in different shapes, — and these were accompanied with “strong crying and tears.” Possibly, you have sometimes had a dread of death; so had your Lord, — not a sinful fear of it, but that natural and perfectly innocent, yet very terrible dread which comes to a greater or less extent upon every living creature when in expectation of death. That is the best way of living which enables a man to go on speaking for God even after he is dead. Christ’s second coming will be “without sin,” and without a sin offering, too, wholly apart from sin, unto the salvation of all His chosen. Her walk has much about it that is mysterious; she knows that the land she treads on belongs to her; and yet, in another sense, she cannot claim a solitary foot of it. That word “encourageth” is a wrong word: “Whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.” The scourge was ever a most severe form of punishment. For Christian fellowship is helpful to us, and we are helpful to others by it. Now Esau sold the right to his future heritage for a present mess of pottage, and many there are who do something very like that,-sell their souls for a little Sunday-trading, or for a little carnal company, a little of that fool’s mirth which is like the crackling of thorns under a pot. Those promises we shall inherit most surely, for we shall by grace be enabled to remain faithful until death. He is sometimes compared to an angel. Oh, blessed result from a little smart and bitter. As the shadows of the night vanish when the sun arises, as the lamps in yonder street are put out when daylight returns, so was it with all the types and shadows of the ancient law when the great Antitype appeared. “Cast not away your confidence.” Rather, get more to add to it. There are some who cannot endure the doctrine of a substitutionary atonement. That is, a sanctuary belonging to this world, a visible sanctuary. See how our Lord Jesus Christ condescended to be appointed of the Father. The promise is left to somebody, it does not say to us- “a promise being left of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.” Not come short of it but even seem to do so. Some in the apostle’s day made religion to consist almost entirely in observing certain rules as to what they ate and what they drank. Home. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein. You have been long called out of Egypt and brought into the separate place in this wilderness world: be careful to be fit for the Divine indwelling. VERSES. Our next of kin, our brother now, Well, dear friend, if I could not hear profitably, I would still make one of the assembly gathered together for the worship of God. It cannot be perfect without us. Another will say, “If I am a child of God, I shall not want to live as I like, but as God likes, and I shall be led by the grace of God into the path of holiness, and through divine grace I shall persevere in that way of holiness right to the end.” That is quite another doctrine, and it is the true teaching of the Word of God. Temporary Christians are not really Christians. He who does not give earnest heed to the gospel treats with disdain the Lord Jesus Christ, and he will have to answer for that sin when the King shall sit upon the throne of judgment. $14.99 Retail: $20.95 Save 28% ($5.96) Availability: Out of Stock. Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. Hebrews 13:14. He has so become partaker of our nature that now we are one family, and he is not ashamed to call us brothers. Christ in my stead suffering the penalty of my sin-that pacifies my conscience, but nothing else does: “Without shedding of blood is no remission.”, Under the law, some things were purified by fire or by water, but “almost all things” were “purged with blood;” and there was and still is, no remission of sin “without shedding of blood.”. Oh, it's a thought that melts a rock. The apostle’s intention is to harden us to any suffering that may come to us in this mortal life. Their blood was only a picture, an emblem, a type of far more precious blood, — the shadow of the real atonement which was afterwards to be offered. Oh. You see, faith and fear can live in the same heart; and they can work together to build the same ark. O Christ, 'twas full for thee! They were strangers and pilgrims here, and they sought a country elsewhere. Friends who appreciate the books will greatly oblige by making them known to others. THE early Christians had to suffer for their faith. We see that by faith. Let them beware lest they be casting away the very soul and essence of the gospel. Shall we desert him now that he has gone into heaven to represent us now that he has fought the fight, and won the victory on our behalf, and gone up to heaven as our Representative? And foaming waves to mountains swell, We are bound to go forward to the better land that is before us. They may think that, because they sin in secret, therefore they shall escape punishment; but it shall not be so. The path of sorrow, and that path alone, Jesus, thine own forerunner see In Jesus we see far more of God than in all the teachings of the prophets. THOSE who out of weakness were made strong are written among the heroes of faith, and are by no means the least of them. Kansas City, Missouri 64118, © 2017 The Spurgeon Center and Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. In verse 29 you have the difference between faith and presumption: faith goes through the sea, presumption is drowned in the sea. Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and for ever. Such is the frailty of the nature of man, and such the perishing condition of all created things, that none can ever obtain the least stable consolation but what ariseth from an interest in the omnipotency, sovereignty, and eternity of Jesus Christ. Let us ask for it. We may not all suffer alike, we may not all need the same kind of suffering; but I question whether any of us can truly learn obedience except by the things which we suffer. “WHEN he was a dying.” Death is a thorough test of faith. that some barren soul here might catch the blessed influences of faith, and begin at once to bear fruit for God! For a testament is of force after men are dead; otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth”; or, if you will, while the victim that was to confirm the covenant lived, the covenant was not ratified; it must be slain before it could be thus effective. Hebrews 13:2-3. Hebrews 9:12. All attempts to offer him again, as the priests pretend to do in the mass, are blasphemous, and are an insinuation that the one offering was not sufficient. Hebrews 13:10. God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son,. It ought to comfort every believer in Christ who has been distressed by the earlier verses: “we”-. Here is a little variation in the subject. In this chapter we read of the wonders of faith; but I have never read a chapter setting forth the wonders of unbelief. Nobody ever grew holy without consenting, desiring, and agonizing to be holy. Is there any other door of escape if we pass that one by? Well, it is a mercy that they are children of God; it would be better, however, for them to grow so as to become teachers of others: “Ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; “ —. Admirable!" Click the title of a sermon to view or save the PDF. Christ was no longer pre-figured, for he was there in person. (wpe). May that be true of every one of us, for our Lord Jesus Christ’s sake! With joy we meditate the grace You have to come to no angry Christ; you have to approach One who will be very gentle toward you. Hebrews: Evangelical Biblical Theology Commentary. The Provider in heaven is better than any provider on earth. Thou stoodest in the sinner's stead, If without holiness, then much more without morality can no man expect to see the face of God with acceptance. May we be given to hospitality, for that should be part of the character of saints. Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. The joy set before Jesus was principally joy of saving you and me! And what will that be? The Levitical priests continually repeated their sacrifice, for it was not effectual when offered only once; but our great High Priest has once for all presented a sacrifice which has made a full atonement for all his people’s sins, and there is therefore no need for it to be repeated. Men like to have everything laid down according to the rules of mathematical precision, but God desires them to exercise faith; and, therefore, he has not acted according to their wishes. In this volume we give you Charles H. Spurgeon commentary on the Epistle to the Hebrews. 2 vols. Sheep are gregarious, and so are the sheep of the Lord Jesus Christ.

There are certain things about us which require this, so thus it must be. Now comes the exhortation: “Call to remembrance the former days.” Some of you can “call to remembrance” the time when you joined the church, when you had to run the gauntlet for Christ’s sake. You remember ’his discernment, how he crossed his hands willingly that he might lay the right hand upon the younger son. The immutability and eternity of Christ are the spring of our consolation and security in every condition. SEE here the germ of the Christian’s life! Under all provocations, and under all disappointments, “let brotherly love continue.”, It is supposed to be there already; let it continue, not only love of a common kind, such as we are to have to all men, but that special “brotherly love” which Christians bear to one another as members of one family. O professors, take this message home to your hearts! Faith made them so mighty. Israel's boast is in Jehovah, the only living and true God. It would seem so from the wording of this verse. As I observed to you in the exposition, the stress in these passages of sacred biography …, Holding Fast Our Profession What a terrible verse is that! You do not need to be constantly telling worldlings that they are doing wrong; let them see clearly the evidence of your faith, for that will bear the strongest conceivable witness against their unbelief and sin, even as Noah, by his faith, “condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.”. To sin and never smart is the mark of those who will be damned; their smart, like their doom, being in reserve and stored up for sorer judgment, I remember once being very, very ill, and a man who had no godliness but who was full of wicked wit accosted me thus: "You see, 'whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth.' They must have a kind of Kindergarten for the little children, that they might learn the elements of the faith by the symbols, types, and representations of a material worship. He shows that God has made a covenant with his people by which they are …, The Vital Force If the doctrine of the atonement be kicked at, the answer of Christ's minister should be to preach the atonement again and again and again in the plainest terms, and declare with even greater vigor and frequency the glorious substitutionary sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ in the place of his people. The first of the long line of martyrs triumphed by faith; and if you are to be strong to bear witness for God, you must be made strong by the same power which wrought so effectually in Abel. “Nevertheless afterward” —. It is one of the great evidences of true faith for her to keep on, to continue, to abide, without any visible signs or tokens of what she knows is hers. If, like his, your life is to be a speaking life, — a life which shall speak even out of the grave, — its voice must be the voice of faith. Let us all be worthy of our high pedigree; and may God grant that, if the saints of these latter days are to perfect the history of the Church of Christ, the end may not be less heroic than the beginning was! It is so, in a measure, in the natural world. Hebrews 11:36-39. Diamonds only will cut diamonds; the Word of God is its own expositor; the New Testament is the key of the old. So all the high priests under the law were. He would not have ceased from his priestly service of presenting sacrifice if his one offering had not been sufficient. Not because there was any sin in him, but that he might be a sympathetic Ruler over his people, he must experience sufferings like those of his subjects; and that he might be s mighty Savior, he must be himself compassed with infirmity, that he might “have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that are out of the way.” Brothers and sisters, do you expect to be made perfect without sufferings? "It pleased the Father to bruise him," and "it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell." A man site down, and reads the book of the Gallic wars, and he believes that Julius Caesar wrote it; yet there is not a half or a tenth ss much evidence to prove that he did write it as there is to prove that our Lord Jesus lived, and died, and rose again from the dead. Yet most people today have never heard of John Gill. "Harden not your hearts," for this will be your ruin. Or, “Where a covenant is, there must also be the death of him who covenants, or of that by which the covenant is established.” Or read it as we have it in our version, for it seems as if it must be so, although we are loathe to give the meaning of “testament” to the word, since its natural meaning is evidently covenant: “Where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator. So the Lord Jesus Christ stood in the room, place, and stead of his people, that he might offer to God for them two things, — gifts, — that is, such offerings as the Jew made when he presented the fine flour, and oil, and other bloodless oblations which were only intended for thanksgiving. In verse 30 are the weapons of faith, the warfare of faith, with nothing but her ram’s horn trumpet she encompasses the giant walls of the city, and downs they fall. He must go again and again as long as he lived. Spurgeon’s writings are now curated in a format that is tied directly to the biblical text. He “was heard in that he feared;” yet he died, and you and I, in praying for ourselves, and praying for our friends, may pray an acceptable prayer, and be heard, yet they may die, or we may die. “ But by faith he did it. They always had to go on, year after year, offering the same kind of sacrifices, because the work of atonement was never done perfectly; men were not cleansed or saved by it, so the process had to be constantly repeated. 38. Therefore leaving the principles — The rudiments, the elementary truths. Next we read of the reward of faith. They “embraced” the promises,— threw their arms round them,— hugged them to their hearts,— embraced them as those who dearly loved them. Spurgeon Commentary, Hebrews by C H Spurgeon, edited by Elliot Ritzema and published by Lexham Press. Whether it be a covenant or a testament, death is necessary to make it valid. Next we learn the obedience of faith. Though almost driven to desperation, he would not give up his faith in God. Or it may be understood that a covenant is not of force till the victim is slain to ratify it with blood. In either sense the death of Jesus was necessary to secure to us the blessings of the gospel. The old law is gone, the first sacrifice is no longer presented, for the second is come, the real offering of Christ the Lamb of God. Faith is able to work in all manner of ways; it is good at everything. Here you have faith uniting itself with the people of God: she perished not with them that believed not, for she had come out from among them and allied herself with the people of God by receiving the spies. We see Jesus, not merely as God, but as the God-man exalted “far above all principality and power, and might, and dominion.”, Here is the representative Man who is supreme over all: “We see Jesus,”. There would be empty seats in the holy orchestra, gaps in the sacred circle; so we who believe must all come there to make them perfect. "And let us run with patience” or “endurance.” There is to be a combination of the active and passive in the Christian; he must be able to endure and yet be able still to work. We shall obtain delivering grace With doting parents it is not so: often him whom his mother loveth is allowed to do as he pleases and to escape chastening, but this is folly. Rejoice in it, and praise the Lord for it for ever and ever. You must believe that he will punish the guilty, and that he will reward the righteous. It gets a grip of what it hopes for, and holds it in its hand. Show sympathy to others while they need it, and they will gratefully remember you when you are in bonds or in adversity. Here we find the names of many of the heroes of faith, and a brief record of some of the battles in which they fought and conquered. Our progress is slow, and we remain babes when we ought to be full grown men in Christ. Whether men judge them or not, God will judge them. He is nothing less than very God of very God. Charles Spurgeon preached a plethora of New Year’s sermons during his pastorate at the Metropolitan Tabernacle. God has never taken an oath, that I know of, against any class of persons, except unbelievers. Well, if you be holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, “Consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus.” Think much of Him. Hebrews 3:12, 13. This may happen even in this world. Doubt gives a man an evil reputation; it is only believers who obtain such a “report” as even the Holy Spirit describes as “good.”. His one offering so fully met all the claims of divine justice on behalf of all his people that there was no need of another offering for sin, and no room for it, so his second coming will be “without a sin offering unto salvation,” as the passage may be rendered. Therefore he came not in the nature of angels, but in the nature of men. It is only by believing the inspired record that we can obtain a true understanding of the wondrous work of creation. That is looking to yourself. That is the epitaph which God has carved over the resting-place of his faithful ones: “These all died in faith.” Will this be the record concerning all of us, “These all died in faith”? We have not yet come to the fullness of the blessing that is ours in Christ Jesus. We have the truth here; the worlds were framed by the word of God, not made of things which existed previously, but spoken out of nothing by the voice of the Almighty. This may be the gospel according to Arminius, but it is not the gospel according to John, nor according to Paul, nor according to our Lord Jesus Christ. A child is a very beautiful object, an infant is one of the loveliest sights under heaven; but if, after twenty years, your child was still an infant, it would be a dreadful trial to you. a. So God had ordained. Luke. Who would not possess a salvation won for us by such condescending love.? If they only seek to die the death of the righteous, and seek not the pardon of their sin, they shall hear the Lord say to them, “Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded: but ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof, I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh.”. There have been many here in this house of prayer who have looked for this city, and they have gone to it. Why, that we shall never be permitted to do so,-that the grace of God will keep us so that, although we may fall like Peter, we shall not fall away like Judas,-that, though we may sin, there shall not be that degree of studied willfulness about it that would make it to be the sin unto death, a deliberate act of spiritual suicide. Hebrews 13:2. They want a heaven, and he is preparing heaven for them, and preparing them for heaven. The fact that Christ is free from sin, is a circumstance which does not diminish the tenderness of his sympathy with us, but rather increases it. And the harlot is so fair, that though he understands that her ways lead down to hell, yet like a bullock he follows to the slaughter till the dart goes through his liver. This Man’s offering once, once, once, has done all that God demanded, and all that man required.
