…saying, “Surely blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply you.” Hebrews 6:14

The words of this verse are quoted from Genesis 22 –

“By Myself I have sworn, says the Lord, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son— 17 blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies.” Genesis 22:16, 17

There is one noticeable change in the quote, however, from “your descendants” to “you,” but this is a way of highlighting Abraham’s place in the blessing.Read the rest

For when God made a promise to Abraham, because He could swear by no one greater, He swore by Himself, Hebrews 6:13

The author will now spend several verses explaining the surety of God’s promises to His people. The word, “For,” is based first on the thought of verse 6:9 which spoke of the surety of the author concerning the “better things” which “accompany salvation” in his audience.Read the rest

…that you do not become sluggish, but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises. Hebrews 6:12

The “same diligence to the full assurance of hope until the end” which was stated in the preceding verse is now explained by saying, “that you do not become sluggish.” To become sluggish implies a change from one state to another.Read the rest

And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope until the end, Hebrews 6:11

The author just spoke of his audience’s “labor of love,” which was that they had “ministered to the saints.” He now says, “And we desire that each of you show the same diligence.” It is obvious that he was speaking in general terms in the previous verse.Read the rest

For God is not unjust to forget your work and labor of love which you have shown toward His name, in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister. Hebrews 6:10

The author now turns onto the works-highway for the next three verses. But, it is a “works of faith after salvation,” not a “works for salvation” that he will speak of.Read the rest
