Ever wonder what God might have to say to YOU today? Here are things to ponder, and things to receive into your heart. If you have a question, put it in the comments. I respond as much as I can.

A note for all my readers: I've been experimenting with YouTube videos for Bible teaching for a while, and I'm working through Revelation here. My YouTube videos are currently short studies in Matthew, and at present I'm posting videos on Revelation as well. Both appear on the blog, which is turning into a Vlog.

Thinking about the book of Hebrews...

This "post" is going to be in multiple parts, because Hebrews is such a powerful book for those of us who are seeking the certainty of our faith. The main theme of Hebrews is expressed in the first words:

Hebrews 1:1-2:
1 God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways,
2 in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world.

Hebrews is about the Son of God, Jesus, who is the greatest of all those whom God has sent to us.  He is greater than the prophets...Greater than the angels...greater than Moses...greater than the priests...greater than all the Old Testament sacrifices combined.

Missing out on Him is the greatest disaster that can happen to you, because He holds the keys of salvation, of life and death, of heaven and hell.
Losing Him in the middle of making a full decision, or shrinking back from Him, is a parallel disaster, because He alone is the path to God--more so than Moses, more so than the angels, more so than anyone else in all the universe.
As we take a brief look at Hebrews, you'll see that Jesus is very glory of God, who came down from Heaven to bring life to us--to YOU.
