Hebrews Part 2
2 of 2
Mark 13:1 “And as He went out of the temple, one of His disciples saith unto Him, “Master, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here.”
Mark 13:2 “And Jesus answering said unto him, “Seest thou these great buildings? There shall not be one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.”
Mark 13:3 And as He sat upon the mount of Olives over against the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked Him privately, and John and Andrew asked Him privately,”
Mark 13:4 “Tell us, when shall these things be? And what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled?”
Mark 13:9 “But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils: and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for My sake.”
Mark 13:10 “And the gospel must first be published among all nations.”
Mark 13:11 “But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.”
Mark 13:12 “Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son: and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death.”
published (Strong’s 2784) to herald (as a public crier), especially divine truth (the gospel), preach, proclaim, publish.
Not one stone will be standing there as Satan will set up his kingdom earth, anything not standing on the Word of God Which is Christ, will be destroyed. Then Jesus says here that the before all those signs which HE has foretold us in His Word also in Matthew 24 and Luke 21, specifically the same subject as this His return and end of this world, will the election, those that stood before and fought against Satan with God will do the same thing as God can trust them. Not because they are His “favorites” or some “special” people, but God knows by previous actions HE can trust them, that’s why their the wife, not bride, as they are already judged as in Revelation 19:7-8. Then the gospel, will published, not written in a book, but proclaimed when the Holy Spirit of God’s will speak through them, not their words. The way they get there is their family friends who will think that Satan is Jesus, and are converting them to him, or getting them “saved” by taking them to these councils, as in Revelation 2:9 and Revelation 3:9, those synagogues of Satan. God’s final cry out to the Word through HIS WORD, the election, His servants allowing His Holy Spirit to speak through them. The perfect Pentecostal tongue, or language, in which each hearer of it heard in the language in which they grew up in as in Acts Chapter 2! Not some “speaking in tongues” that is a lie and not in God’s Word, but the beautiful, pure truth, HIS WORD, and His truth, also told to us in Joel Chapter 2, hundreds of years before the exact words they spoke in Acts 2, that the sons and the daughters that God would use to speak out to the people, warning them that the enemy, Satan, would come and he will come, just exactly as written. Let’s continue back here in Hebrews:
Hebrews 2:7 “Thou madest Him a little lower than the angels; Thou crownedst Him with glory and honour, and didst set Him over the works of Thy hands:”
Hebrews 2:8 “Thou hast put all things in subjection under His feet.” For in that He put all in subjection under Him, He left nothing that is not put under Him.”
Then Jesus was made a little lower than the angels. Meaning He put on a flesh body, as God easily could have put Him down here in an angelic Body, remember we all have both a spiritual and flesh body. NO, Jesus did this so no person could say HE doesn’t understand as He never had to live in the flesh. So God did this for that, showing that HE was not too good to put a flesh Body on, and come here, be Emmanuel or God with us, showing us the way. Teaching us with His Word of God how to live this flesh life, and HE did it only, nobody else, with perfection. Then everything, all people, God’s creation, His angels, His people, His animals, birds, all creation, under Jesus, even Satan, as we went in Matthew where it Jesus then finally did this:
Revelation 12:7 “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,”
Revelation 12:8 “And prevailed not, neither was their place found any more in heaven.”
Revelation 12:9 “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world, and his angels were cast out with him.”
Devil (Strong’s 1228) a traducer; specific Satan; false accuser, devil, slanderer.
Satan (Strong’s 4567) the accuser, i.e. the devil.
In our very near future at God’s command Satan will be released to this earth as today he is locked in chains in heaven with those fallen angels of Genesis 6 that took wives of the daughters of Adam, or man, instead of being born in the flesh, however are not named, only Satan, as in Revelation 20:10. Then we see some of Satan’s names, the old serpent in Genesis Chapter 3, who did deceive the whole world except God’s election and they worshipped him we just read in Revelation 12:4. Satan’s names both mean traducer, or trader, as in Ezekiel Chapter 28, Satan holding a very trusting on God’s part, seat in His army, protecting the throne of God. Satan betrayed that trust and sat in God’s throne, claimed to be as God and took one third of God’s people we just read it in Revelation 12:4, and why we are here in the flesh today. That’s it! Then God will test His people again, those people with us today, along with the many that either did nothing or could care less about the others, and why we need that gospel armor, or the Word of God, on us today. Moving along here:
Hebrews 2:9 “But we see Jesus, Who was made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour, that He by the grace of God should taste death for every man.”
Jesus then made lower than the angels, not as the Angel of the Lord, but a flesh Man, and in Hebrews 2:14:
Hebrews 2:14 “Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same; that through death He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;”
Destroyed the power of death who is Satan. That way each person, to go to where they can be abused by Satan, who remember today is locked in chains in heaven, and Jesus put the devil behind him there when Jesus said “…get thee hence..”, we just read in Matthew 4:10. The LORD God through His Servant, Jesus, His Son, showing us the way and He did in the flesh as Emmanuel, or God with us as here:
Matthew 1:23 “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a Son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.”
Which is quoting from here in the Old Testament:
Isaiah 7:14 “Therefore the LORD Himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”
Immanuel (Strong’s 6005) with us (is) God; (from Strong’s 6006) to load, i.e. impose a burden, be borne, (heavy) burden, lade, load, put; and (from Strong’s 3050) Jah, the sacred name: the Lord, most vehement.
That virgin, Mary, God used his servant, for this purpose, exactly as God’s Word had foretold us hundreds of years prior to this event. No man can fake history, even though today the scientific world, as well as the sons of Cain, or the Kenites, and some other religions, try and say Jesus never did come, changing the words A.D. and B.C., or Before Christ and Anno Domini, or we say Before Died, in English, to A.C.E. or B.C.E., or Before and after Common Era, trying to hide this miraculous event. When remember that same Psalms 22, that Jesus was quoting the entire Psalms on the cross, teaching us in His last dying, and painful time, in the Words of the LORD God, Psalms 22, here which Hebrews 2:8
Hebrews 2:10 “For it became Him, for Whom are all things, and by Whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the Captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.”
Hebrews 2:11 “For both He That sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of One: for which cause He is not ashamed to call them brethren,”
Hebrews 2:12 “Saying, “I will declare Thy Name unto My brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto Thee.”
Captain (Strong’s 747) chief leader, author, captain, prince.
It was Almighty LORD God’s will to do this, to have Jesus come live in the flesh as Son of Man, allowing many of his sons, meaning both male and female in the flesh, all peoples, salvation, as He is the Captain, meaning the Chief Leader, the Author, and the Captain of His army, and prince. Ruler that the MOST HIGH GOD, Jehovah, is giving Jesus Christ this title, as He is the King of kings, and Lord of lords. So Jesus then is the political leader, the Author of the Word of God, for that is His very name, as here:
Revelation 19:16 “And He hath on His vesture and on His thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”
That Chief Ruler, Jesus Christ, when He comes after Satan reigns for that five month period of Revelation 9:5, shortened per Mark 13:
Mark 13:20 “And except that the LORD had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect’s sake, whom He hath chosen, He hath shortened the days.”
The LORD God knew not one person, even God’s election, could stand that trial of the seven year period, in which Satan comes in the middle of the week, or the seven period, as in Daniel Chapter 9, that the time period is now five months. Satan coming at the middle of the final hour of temptation, or for two and one half months as in Revelation 8:1. Then in Hebrews 2:11 He Who sanctifies, or purifies, our sins with His blood then, are of Him, that He is not ashamed of us, calling us His brethren. As we all are adopted by the LORD God here:
Romans 8:12 “Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.”
Romans 8:13 “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.”
Romans 8:14 “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.”
Romans 8:15 “For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, “Abba, Father.”
We are as believers not then living by ways of the world, and depending on the old way of thinking for survival, and regarding our spirituality, not relying on man-made religion, nor man-made church doctrines. But rather on the Holy Spirit of the Word of God, as we no longer live in the continual fear of death. Not to say naturally we have that instinct of death in all of us to survive, this is required and good so God can use us to get His Will done. But we are not so focused on that, we know that our lives are more than just this flesh world here, there is yet an eternity to look forward to, and what keeps our focus is the Word of God. Through the adoption of the LORD God, Heavenly Father, through our belief on the Word of God, His Son Jesus Christ, we have that opportunity. Amen! Then here Hebrews 12:22 Jesus is not ashamed to call us his brothers and sisters, as here in this Psalms 22 Jesus is quoting on the cross right before He dies in the flesh:
Psalms 22:22 “I will declare Thy Name unto my brethren: In the midst of the congregation will I praise Thee.”
He is saying that by His credentials, by when we go to Heavenly Father, in His Name, Jesus Christ, as believers, then Jesus will praise God along with us also who believe. There is no shame there, just His perfect humility, humbling Himself, just think, the LORD God, really showing us His mercy, that He is not better than us, nor prideful, but He loves us all so much that love Him and believe in Him! What a pleasure and an honor it is to serve Him. Then going here:
Hebrews 2:13 “And again, “I will put my trust in Him.” And again, “Behold, I and the children which God hath given Me.”
There are two quotes here. The first one is here
II Samuel 22:1 “And David spake unto the LORD the words of this song in the day that the LORD had delivered him out of the hand of all his enemies, and out of the hand of Saul:”
II Samuel 22:2 “And he said, “The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer;”
II Samuel 22:3 “The God of my rock; in Him will I trust: He is my shield, and the horn of my salvation. My high tower, and my refuge, My saviour; Thou savest me from violence.”
II Samuel 22:4 “I will call on the LORD, Who is worthy to be praised: So shall I be saved from mine enemies.”
Another song of David here, remember out of the mouths of babes, David that youth that God used for that example for our warning, a type or example for Jesus Who did come through his family, as Our Saviour, Jesus Christ. We can only count on the LORD GOD, His Word is our Rock, the only Source that we can go to for truth. Not some men’s traditions, or religion, or church. But to God’s Word. That LORD GOD Jehovah we can only trust. When we have God over our lives, we have His protection and His authority, with blessings we cannot even imagine. Not to say we will have easy lives, but easier lives, with peace in us and happiness that no money can buy nor nobody with their love can give us. When we are in trouble, don’t run for advice from any person, any church system, or religion, but go to the LORD GOD, Heavenly Father in the name of His Son, Jesus, and ask for His help. He loves it when HE hears from you, listening to you, and you thanking Him for so many of the blessings and good things that makes your life so much better, as I try to do daily, and throughout each day, thanking Him for the Word of God. He is worthy to be praised, Amen! The only way out of here, when Satan comes before Jesus, is through His armor cover of protection, as Ephesians 6:
Ephesians 6:11 “Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”
Ephesians 6:12 “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
Ephesians 6:13 “Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”
That gospel armor of God’s Word, like the man-made one that King Saul was trying to put onto David, we need to put it, the Word of God, so that when we, the election, go against the giant, which will be Satan when God commands he be released to this earth we just read it in Revelation 12:7-9, is on us, and we are ready for God to use us to speak through us. Not just a little bit here or there, but the whole thing, so we know God’s plan of salvation, not some condensed, incorrect version your church may give you, but what Our Heavenly Father has through His Son, Jesus Christ, His Word, giving us the fire power, the ammunition that will keep us safe. Then the second quote we just read in Hebrews 2:13, And again, “Behold, I and the children which God hath given Me.”, is from here:
Isaiah 8:18 “Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, Which dwelleth in mount Zion.”
That’s why we need to read that Word of God, for the signs and wonders of what happened before, God is not going to recreate the wheel, so as to speak, but giving us many examples, you would think He thinks we are so dense, but no way, He just loves us and really is making His point, as He does not want one soul to miss the boat. To not make it through the flesh age the first time around, so to speak here, as at the end of this flesh age when Jesus returns, there will be that majority of liable to perish souls, who will be still liable to die the second death as here:
Revelation 20:2 “And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,”
Revelation 20:3 “And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled; and after that he must be loosed a little season.”
Revelation 20:4 “And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them; and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.”
Revelation 20:5 “But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.”
Revelation 20:6 “Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.”
We see then Satan is re-locked in chains for a thousand years, or the Lord’s Day as one day is one thousand with the Lord as II Peter 3:8 states. Then the election, those who overcome, so we see those like John the Baptist, and by history we know that Paul was beheaded for teaching the Word of God, people like them, will be the ones in charge, the ones, not that man or religion or some church system, but Almighty LORD God has predetermined by what they did in the first earth age as well as this age. But the rest, the majority, as in Revelation 20:8, their number you cannot count or as the sand of the sea, will fail in the flesh and still liable to perish, meaning as Satan be totally blotted out IF they listen to him again, this time Satan only able to use his lies and deception, no one world kingdom, nor miracles, or the appearance to look as Jesus, nor a one world system where he can buy you off, all these things in Revelation Chapter 13:11-17, that he will tempt the world with in our near future. Their duties are in detail of the priests, or the election, who stand against Satan, as well as the ones who have come before us like the two mentioned, the prophets, the teachers of God’s Word, many losing their lives for doing so. Then moving on here:
Hebrews 2:14 “Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same; that through death He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; had the power of death, that is, the devil:”
Hebrews 2:15 “And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.”
Hebrews 2:16 “For verily He took not on Him the nature of angels; but He took on Him the seed of Abraham.”
Hebrews 2:17 “Wherefore in all things it behoved Him to be made like unto His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.”
We touched on this but let’s really understand Jesus then not too proud to come down to this earth in the flesh, as Son of God, Emmanuel, or God with us. Not taking an angel’s body, through the family of Adam, Abraham, later then through Jesse, David and then through Nathan on the priest line side, He the Lord of lords, as in Luke Chapter 3. That is the seed, or the offspring of Abraham,
Luke 3:21 “Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened,”
Luke 3:22 “And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon Him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, “Thou art My beloved Son; in Thee I am well pleased.”
Luke 3:23 “And Jesus Himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the Son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli,”
Luke 3:31 “Which was the son of Melea, which was the son of Menan, which was the son of Mattatha, which was the son of Nathan, which was the son of David,”
Luke 3:32 “Which was the son of Jesse, which was the son of Obed, which was the son of Booz, which was the son of Salmon, which was the son of Naason,”
Luke 3:34 “Which was the son of Jacob, which was the son of Isaac, which was the son of Abraham, which was the son of Thara, which was the son of Nachor,”
Luke 3:38 “Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God.”
Ghost (Strong’s 4151) a current of air, i.e. breath (blast) or a breeze; a spirit, i.e. (human) the rational soul, vital principle, mental disposition, (superhuman) an angel, demon, or (divine) God, Christ’s spirit, the Holy Spirit.
First we read the Holy Ghost, should be translated Spirit, as God is the Living God, HE is not dead! HE came from heaven as Jesus was being baptized, as when we go down in the water all of that sin, just like when you dye a garment it is immersed in the water, not sprinkled as do out of ignorance, but the whole person, then showing this outer flesh life, is under the water. Then born fresh and clean with the Holy Spirit of God Which is His Word, a new person in Christ we are. Jesus us showing us the way here, and God saying, listen to Him, remember His Name, the Word of God, as God is well pleased with Him. Why wouldn’t we want to crack open that Bible and just begin and take a crack at it! Really try and understand what Heavenly Father has laid out easily and simply when we make the attempt, God will do the rest and help us along the way. Coming to our level, letting us understand His Word. Then here we see Jesus since Joseph adopted Him by law, that is what as was supposed means, by law took him as his son. Then we see the genealogy here of Mary’s mother, as her sister in Luke 1 married to a Levitical priest, who his wife is Mary’s cousin, Elisabeth, John the Baptists mom. Then fulfilling God’s Word of Revelation 19:16, in this genealogy of the seed of Abraham, as we see here so many of the saints, or set aside ones in Jesus’ bloodline on Mary’s mother’s side. There is Nathan, then David, his dad, then Jesse, his dad, then Jacob, his dad Isaac, his dad Abraham, then back to Seth, remember Satan murdered Abel through Cain in Genesis 4:8, and then right back to Adam. Isn’t’ God perfect? No man can fake such a perfect plan. As we then see the LORD of lords of Revelation 19:15 fulfilled here:
Matthew 1:1 “The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the Son of David, the Son of Abraham.”
Matthew 1:2 “Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judas and his brethren;”
Matthew 1:3 “And Judas begat Pares and Zahra of Tamar; and Pares begat Esrom; and Esrom begot Aram;”
Matthew 1:4 “And Abram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and Naasson begat Salmon;”
Matthew 1:5 “And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse;”
Matthew 1:6 “And Jesse begat David the king; and David the king begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of Urias;”
Matthew 1:16 “And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, Who is called Christ.”
As Jesus was as supposed or by law the adopted son of Joseph, He then in the King line as well, and even David is in both the King line side of Jesus’ genealogy as well as on His mother’s side, as well as Abraham on both sides. God is so very perfect and precise in His Word. NO man could fake the Word of God, all perfectly complete as the Lord’s will is done. Then finishing up here:
Hebrews 2:18 “For in that He Himself hath suffered being tempted, He is able to succour them that are tempted.”
Only Jesus, through HIS Word of God can we be succoured, or free from all of us who are constantly tempted in our flesh bodies. Keep in the Word of God as I try and do each day as that is our protective cover. For there is one very critical mistake we all are liable to make in the flesh that is to worship Satan when we are here in the flesh, and that would not be good. Why have to wait another one thousand years, in which we have the torment of Satan, remember as in Luke 16 we see that example of the rich man that did not make it on the wrong side of the gulf, not being able to be comforted by the Lord or the Word of God, that water he just wanted to dip the tip of his tongue in. We have it now today so just try and make the attempt. Heavenly Father is right there, will easily help you and loves you so much for just thinking about trying! I love you so much, so keep it up! Stay in His Word! He is the Only Way, that is the Word of God, His very Name!
