Phil Newton applies the idea of the present tense which indicates habitual or continuous action to make the important point that "Apostasy does not happen overnight. And so we have in the life of Charles Templeton, a man who surely experienced all of the attributes described in Hebrews 6:4-5 and yet he fell away from all he had experienced from 1936 to 1948, over 20 years of evangelizing for Christ! We need other believers, the reminder of judgment and condemnation, and the reality of our future hope to keep us from wandering from this truth.

Unconfessed transgression, like a fierce poison, dried up the fountain of the man's strength and made him like a tree blasted by the lightning, or a plant withered by the scorching heat of a tropical sun. but if by the Spirit you are putting to death the deeds of the body, you will live.")

The things that had once seemed important now seemed trivial. Just a small deviation from God’s standards can place us far afield from our intended destination. He hammers home with frightening force the terrors of impending judgment, but also the refuge of the cross. ILLUSTRATION OF MODERN DAY APOSTATE – The picture above is from 1946 – do you recognize the man on the right? What is apostasy and how can I recognize it? He who covers his sin will not prosper…, Illustration: A nice Christian family joined the church by letter from another city. It is not the retention of salvation that is in the apostle’s mind, but the possession of it that would be shown by their continuance in the gospel. They will not escape.

He was stoned to death at the command of the Lord. Go on sinning (264) (hamartano) means to miss a mark and in this context means to miss God's will. (Amplified Bible - Lockman), Barclay: All that we can expect is to wait in terror for judgment and for that flaming wrath which will consume the adversaries of God. Yet, here, as in Heb6, the author does not say that anyone has committed this sin. He describes what would happen, not what has happened. If he were, then who could be saved (? We cannot claim to follow Christ and at the same time reject the doctrine of eternal punishment. The Greek could be rendered, “a kind of fearful expectation.”(Hebrews Commentary online), Saul was an example of "willful sinning" in OT = see his terrifying expectation =, (Samuel who had died is supernaturally present and declares to Saul) Moreover the Lord will also give over Israel along with you into the hands of the Philistines, therefore tomorrow you and your sons will be with me.

And at the end of the chapter (Heb 10:39+), the writer makes it clear that he considers himself a true believer by including himself in the "we" who do not "shrink back to destruction". The person is “set apart” from the world in the sense that he has joined with the church and its ordinances. “Men in conservative Christian colleges?”, “Most of them, yes,” he said. “To regard as unclean” means, literally, “to treat as common.” It may refer to partaking of communion even though his faith was not genuine, and so profaning the cup representing the blood of the covenant (Hughes, p. 423). “Insulted” has a nuance of arrogance or insolence (“hubris” comes from the Greek word). 29How much severer punishment do you think he will deserve who has trampled under foot the Son of God, and has regarded as unclean the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has insulted the Spirit of grace? (2Cor 5:17+). It is to turn from the only way of salvation to an obsolete system that never could remove the guilt of sins (Heb 10:4-note). --HEBREWS x. You were not deserving of God, you were a poor sinner without any claim upon Him, and yet He has been pleased to prepare a table.

He preached in the same church as C. H. Spurgeon over one hundred years earlier. Take upon thee the burden of those who are asleep, and plead with Christ to use thee to warn and to save them. Jude cites the fate of Sodom and Gomorrah “as example of those who suffer punishment of eternal fire” (Jude 1:7) and encourages his readers to “snatch others from the fire and save them” (Jude 1:23). And yet this is just your case. (2Th 1:8, 9, 10). All rights reserved). Gary Hill adds that "hamartánō ("choosing sin") asserts the agenda of self, by (for) self, over God's loving plan. The person who spurns God’s grace in Christ deserves far greater punishment than physical death by stoning. The warning will just thus profit us most--it will make us fearful of committing any sin, lest it might be, or lead us into wilful sin. Hebrews 10:26-27 Woe to Those Who Trample the Son of God. Wuest - Instead of a sacrifice for sin awaiting this apostate, there awaits him a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation.

Their judgment had been convinced, through the mind their desire and will had been affected and wrought upon; and yet, the heart, the whole inner life, had never been truly regenerate, had never received that eternal life, which cannot be taken away. After a person leaves God, it makes little difference where he then goes. Don't sweep sin under the rug. The knowledge the truth - This is not "gnosis" but "epignosis" (full knowledge - see below)!

(a) John Owen (An Exposition of Hebrews [The National Foundation for Christian Education], 4:545) argues that it does not refer to the apostate, but to Christ Himself, “who was sanctified and dedicated unto God to be an eternal high priest, by the blood of the covenant which he offered unto God….” This is possible grammatically, although it seems to force into the context something that is specifically taught in John 17:19, but only alluded to in Hebrews (Hebrews 2:10; 5:7, 9; 9:11, 12). .

Instead put it under the blood! So let's first look in the mirror and see how this relates to genuine, born again believers, which is most of you reading this commentary. Even though he has been issuing this strong warning, the author has all along included himself with his readers by using the first person plural (“Let us,” Heb 10:22, 23, 24; “we,” 10:26, 30). By so doing he demonstrates that the warnings are intended for the saved as well as for the unsaved. That is why we need to be continually filled with and controlled by the Holy Spirit (Eph 5:18+), so that we might be supernaturally enabled to fight the good fight of faith (1 Ti 6:12+) against the serpentine snares of sin that continually come from our fallen flesh. Consider Thomas Paine, the enemy of Christianity whose last hour came in 1809, finding him a disillusioned and unfulfilled individual who in his final moments declared…. - Are you being deceived by sin and tolerating it like a pet?

The Wisdom decides and declares what is to be: the Power secures the performance. To speak about God’s terrifying future judgment is not pleasant, but it is necessary, since the Bible clearly teaches that it will happen. (1 Jn 3:9+). He had a terrible temper that caused him to abuse Susan both physically and emotionally. That this is the point of the passage is clearly seen in Hebrews 10:29, where the “deliberate” sinners are described as those who have “trampled the Son of God under foot,” treated the “blood of the covenant” as something common (in other words, looked upon Jesus’ death as just any common criminal’s death) and “insulted the Spirit of grace.” This is deliberate sin, but deliberate in the sense that a person willfully is renouncing Christianity and rejecting Jesus, his death and the personal experience of the Spirit (which is the slander against the Holy Spirit condemned in Mk 3:28–29). A man could go to the Levitical sacrifices twenty years running, and yet be … And of course if they persist in sin and do not confess and repent, they will likely experience the discipline of God (see Hebrews 12:5-11). Steven Cole recognizing that the warning passages in Hebrews do not make for popular pulpit preaching introduces his sermon in Hebrews 10:26-31 with a pithy illustration…. 12:31, 32). Then I shall go to hell and you will go with me.". Such a person, regardless of outward appearances, had never truly committed his faith and life to Christ in the first place (1Jn 2:19+).

DEEPLY as our feelings may be moved on a day such as this, deeply as our hearts may be affected with a sense of sin, and at the same time filled with thankfulness for the mercy from on high, that planned to save us by God not sparing His own Son, we can only be sure of having found the right and true use of the day, when we bring our thoughts and feelings to the test of Scripture. We are flawed people who are vulnerable to temptation and to the foolishness of mind that can rationalize and justify almost any course of action if we try hard enough. Matt 6:25, 31; 9:11; 11:18f; 12:1, 4; 14:16, 20f; 15:2, 20, 27, 32, 37f; 24:49; 25:35, 42; 26:17, 21, 26; Mark 1:6; 2:16, 26; 3:20; 5:43; 6:31, 36f, 42, 44; 7:2ff, 28; 8:1f, 8; 11:14; 14:12, 14, 18, 22; Luke 4:2; 5:30, 33; 6:1, 4; 7:33f, 36; 8:55; 9:13, 17; 10:7f; 12:19, 22, 29, 45; 13:26; 14:1, 15; 15:16, 23; 17:8, 27f; 22:8, 11, 15f, 30; 24:43; John 4:31ff; 6:5, 23, 26, 31, 49ff, 58; 18:28; Acts 9:9; 10:13f; 11:7; 23:12, 21; 27:35; Rom 14:2f, 6, 20f, 23; 1 Cor 8:7f, 10, 13; 9:4, 7, 13; 10:3, 7, 18, 25, 27f, 31; 11:20ff, 26ff, 33f; 15:32; 2 Thess 3:8, 10, 12; Heb 10:27; 13:10; Jas 5:3; Rev 2:7, 14, 20; 10:10; 17:16; 19:18.

Heretics would not so be presented, only true believers. Therefore, we must understand that Jonathan Edwards’s passionate love for God and his flock was the reason he employed every tool in his considerable stores of logic and metaphor to plead for his people’s souls in “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God.” He was less concerned with God’s wrath than with his grace, which was freely extended to sinners who repented. ), Phil Newton introduces this difficult teaching harking back to Jonathan Edwards' famous sermon Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God…. “And if I may put it this way,” he said as his voice began to crack, ‘I .
