Hebrews 10:28

Thursday, 14 February 2019

Anyone who has rejected Moses’ law dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. Hebrews 10:28

Here, the author cites a combination of Deuteronomy 13 and Deuteronomy 17 –

“…you shall not consent to him or listen to him, nor shall your eye pity him, nor shall you spare him or conceal him. Deuteronomy 13:8


“Whoever is deserving of death shall be put to death on the testimony of two or three witnesses; he shall not be put to death on the testimony of one witness.” Deuteronomy 17:6

In rejecting the law, there was to be no mercy; but for capital punishment, there were to be two or three witnesses. In this, the author is citing the law itself for one who rejects that law. As the Law of Moses actually anticipated the coming of Christ (Deuteronomy 18:15), and as recognized prophets under the law prophesied of a New Covenant (Jeremiah 31:31), then for the person who is determined to reject the New Covenant and the Prophet who was prophesied by Moses to come, how much more serious is the matter concerning him! If such a person wants to remain under the Old, he has actually rejected Moses’ law and the punishment for such an act is already written within that law.

But, the punishment under the law is a temporal punishment. The punishment for rejecting the New Covenant then must be more severe than even that. The author will continue to explain this in the verses ahead.

Life application: As the Law of Moses could not bring about salvation, and as the Law of Moses – and prophets under that law – prophesied of a coming New Covenant, if man is to be saved, it has to come through this New Covenant. To reject what Christ has done, and to go back under the Law of Moses, is a self-condemning act. Be sure to pursue Christ and only Christ. Come to the cross, be reconciled to God, and enter into the surety of the salvation of your soul.

Lord, we are without excuse as to what choice we make in regards to the message of peace and reconciliation which is found in Christ Jesus. Likewise, those who haven’t heard of it stand condemned already and will face an unpleasant eternity. Therefore, turn our hearts to the need and priority of spreading Your glorious gospel. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

    It’s so simple to understand yet many people do not get it. We are under a new Covenant and so the Old one is obsolete,annulled and set aside.Even if I tried very hard, I will never be able to fulfill those 613 laws mandated under the Old. The New Covenant is so much easier for me thanks be to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The law is perfect so only a perfect person could keep it. That rules me out. But not my Jesus.

    “Free from the law, O happy condition, Jesus hath bled and there is remission
    Cursed by the law and bruised by the fall, Grace has redeemed us once for all”

    To my SWF, please pray for us in Trinidad today. The police commissioner has put the country on RED ALERT- expecting intense gang violence from today. Intelligence has revealed that gangs will increase their warfare and police officers will be out today in large numbers. We have to go about our daily activities as usual but not knowing what to expect can make one quite uneasy. Keep in mind that we have associations with the Middle East. Thank you all very much.

    We are praying Ruth, stay safe in the lord and and look up for our redemption is at hand Amen. World biblical events are happening so fast now we can’t keep up with the them. The watchmen around the world are screaming at the top of their lungs that the lord is coming and yet so very few are listening to them, the earth is truly shaking like a drunk man as the magnetic poles are shifting, volcanos and earthquake happening around the the world hourly now, I know this becaus I have an app on my phone ther alerts me to 5.0 and higher earthquakes and it is going off nearly every hour now. They have put the Yellowstone Caldera on high alert now for a major eruption that will devistate America and the world causing temperatures to drop, crops to fail its Revelaton/ the Tribulation setting up before our eyes. The rumors of war are now the drums of war. Italy and the US just sent hundreds of Tanks and artillery to Israels borders, the U.K. Is sending their Aircraft carrier to the China sea, it has been leaked that the Russians have deployed their autonomous Posiden subs that have the capability of causing huge tsunamis when detonated, it is said that one Posiden has the power of 1000 Hiroshima bombs. Also the other day Russia has flat out told the US to get out of Syira, diplomacy is failing, will the peace plan be the trigger for the Rapture the precursor for the anti Christ to take the peace plan and make it his own , we can only hope. What a comfort to know our sins have been paid for, that we are saved through the blood of Jesus and that we right now should have no worries but be rejoicing because we know we fly soon and yet for a little while longer we will have greif and sorrow mixed in with our joy for friends and family that are stubborn and don’t want to hear the truth of salvation. We can only pray that they will wake up, remember what we were trying to tell them, refuse the mark of the beast and yes die for the lord so they can join us in heaven Amen.

    Ok it was happy fingers time I guess? I needed to vent, to share with those that can appreciate the gravity of all this and I thank you all for that! It’s so frustrating to have this info and no one around me wants to hear it or even consider it 🙁
    Soon this will all be behind us never to bother us again AMEN

    We ARE another day closer to home
    Grace mercy and peace on you and yours
    God bless my friends we fly soon
