Hebrews Part 13

2 of 2

Genesis 6:1 “And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,”
Genesis 6:2 “That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.”
Genesis 6:3 “And the LORD said, “My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.”
Genesis 6:4 “There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.”
men (Strong’s 120) ruddy, i.e. a human being (an individual or the species, mankind, etc.); (from Strong’s 119) to show blood (in the face), i.e. flush or turn rosy, be (dyed, made) red (ruddy).
giants (Strong’s 5303) properly a feller, i.e. a bully or tyrant; giant.
mighty (Strong’s 1368) powerful; by implication warrior, tyrant champion, giant; (same as Strong’s 1397) properly a valiant man or warrior; a person, mighty; (from Strong’s 1396) to be strong; by implication to prevail, act insolently or disrespectful, be stronger or valiant.
old (Strong’s 5769) concealed, i.e. the vanishing point; time out of mind (past or future), i.e. practically eternity; always; (from Strong’s 5956) to veil from sight, i.e. conceal, blind, secret thing.
renown (Strong’s 8034) an appellation or name by a specific geographical location, as a mark or memorial of individuality; honor, authority, character, famous name, renown; (perhaps from Strong’s 7760 through idea of definite and conspicuous position) to put, place, tread down.

These are the daughters of man, which means to show blood in face. So Adam’s daughters. The sons of God, or the angels, these fallen angels we are talking about here in Matthew 24 which came and took them as wives instead of being born innocent in the flesh. They then disrupted God’s plan of salvation and they created these hybrids. Half angel and half man very famous people. We know in the Word later some later attempts by them, the giant Goliath that David cut his head off one of their offspring. The point then they were trying to destroy Jesus Who would and did come, and then God had the flood of Noah’s time, destroying them and their offspring. As here they are all also condemned to perish, or be fully destroyed as Satan will, as in Revelation 11:13, but God is using them for our correction in their final role with Satan setting up his kingdom on earth and saying he is God as in II Thessalonians 2:3-4. As here the manna that God rained on the people of Israel with Moses in wilderness, they ate the corn of heaven, or angels’ food, so a flesh body can also be sustained by this, telling us this is possible. Let‘s go back to Goliath here:

I Samuel 17:4 “And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span.”
champion (Strong’s 1143)a double interval, i.e. the space between two armies; (Dual of Strong’s 996) a distinction or between
Goliath (Strong’s 1555) exile; (perhaps from Strong’s 1540) to denude (especially in a disgraceful sense); by implication to exile (captives being usually stripped); to reveal; to uncover or reveal.

This giant or champion, Goliath, meaning exile or reveal or uncover. Just as Satan uncovered the truth leaving Adam and Eve not innocent in the Garden, the base is Goliath’s name. This offspring of the fallen angels as his height was (Six cubits (21 inches =cubit x 6 = 126 and a span= 10.5 inches –total height = 136.5 inches or 11.38 feet). He was not a normal human man, but mixed with the fallen angels. So the human body can eat angel’s food as the children of Israel ate the manna as here:

Psalms 78:23 “Though He had commanded the clouds from above, And opened the doors of heaven,”
Psalms 78:24 “And had rained down manna upon them to eat, And had given them of the corn of heaven.”
Psalms 78:25 “Man did eat angels’ food: He sent them meat to the full.”

The children of Israel survived on the manna, or angels food, and so we then can conclude that an angelic body can be sustained the same way. Remember God made man in His Image and of the angels as here:

Genesis 1:26 “And God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”

We look exactly as we do in our angelic bodies. That’s why during the one thousand year period the elect can go to family members if they are going away from God as here:

Ezekiel 44:25 “And they shall come at no dead person to defile themselves: but for father, or for mother, or for son , or for daughter, for brother, or for sister that hath had no husband, they may defile themselves.”

Then these angels are condemned to perish as Satan will at the end of the thousand years, or the Lord’s Day as here:

Jude :6 “And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, He hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.”
habitation (Strong’s 3613) a residence; house (from derivative of Strong’s 3611) to occupy a house, inhabit.

They left heaven came here to this earth and they will be destroyed on the Lord’s Day as here:

Revelation 11:13 “And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.”

This happens when Jesus comes after Revelation 12:7-9 happens and the entire world is that state of apostasy worshipping the son of perdition, who is Satan, as in II Thessalonians 2:3-4. Moving along here in:

Hebrews 13:3 “Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and then which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.”

Remember the subject is brotherly love, or remembering the other believers. At this time Paul and so many others were beaten, imprisoned and persecuted for teaching the Word of God. As here:

Hebrews 10:34 “For ye had compassion of me in my bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of your goods, knowing in yourselves that ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance.”

Paul is in chains as right now Paul is awaiting his trial in Rome for teaching God’s Word, and they will execute him, beheading him according to history. We are blessed in this country the United States that we have the freedom of religion today. Moving along here:

Hebrews 13:4 “Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.”

The subject remember is brotherly love or loving the people of God. The subject here, as remember the many membered Bride, those with free will, and the Wife, God’s election, or those who are already judged as they withstood Satan in the first earth age for they did not worship him. That is subject here as here:

Revelation 19:7 “Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him: for the marriage of the lamb is come, and His wife hath made herself ready.”
Revelation 19:8 “And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.”

The fine linen is our actions that are righted by the blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ for taking making the payment with His life for all of our sins, for He is perfect. The wife, then as they are already judged by the LORD God for they fought with Him against Satan warning the others, that one third in Revelation 12:4 that worshipped him! The other two thirds either could care less or didn’t say anything about what was going on. Then the bride are those with free will, as here, Jesus is talking about the ten virgins who did not have enough oil in their lamps, meaning truth, or the Word of God, as here:

Matthew 25:1 “Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.”
Matthew 25:2 “And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.”
Matthew 25:3 “They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:”
Matthew 25:4 “But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.”
Matthew 25:5 “While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.”
Matthew 25:6 “And at midnight there was a cry made, ‘Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go yet out to meet him.”
Matthew 25:7 “Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.”
Matthew 25:8 “And the foolish said unto the wise, ‘Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.’”
Matthew 25:9 “But the wise answered, saying, ‘Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.’”
Matthew 25:10 “And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.”
Matthew 25:11 “Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, ‘lord, lord, open to us.’”
Matthew 25:12 “But he answered and said, ‘Verily I say unto you, I know you not.’”
Matthew 25:13 “Watch therefore for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.”
Oil (Strong’s 1637) olive oil; (from Strong’s 1636) an olive (the tree or the fruit); (The word El ah Yah or Jah in Hebrew)

Jesus is warning right here and take note that the ten virgins, ten meaning ordinal perfection or another new first. These five that did not have enough truth or oil in the lamps. Then Jesus tells us that we do not know the exact day nor hour, but as we are learning here in Mark 13, He has given us the season, the generation of the fig tree. Now the word “Oil” here contains two of the sacred names of God, “El” the Almighty, and “Jah” is Jehovah in a special sense and relation as Jehovah as having BECOME our salvation. Jehovah is He who WAS, and IS and IS TO COME. You see then Jesus, Jehovah’s Savior, in Hebrew Jehoshua or Jeshua, means Jehovah’s Savior. That is what you are saying in English when you say Jesus. Now that oil that truth they do not have in their lamps in the very name here of Jesus as here:

Revelation 19:13 “And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and His name is called The Word of God.”

Jesus is The Word of God. That is His very Name so open up that Bible, His Word. Learn about Him so you are warned about what happens in these final days. Moving along:

Hebrews 13:5 “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for He hath said, “I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”

Be careful where you go, for remember as a representative of the Lord, He is living right with you. You take Him wherever you go. So stay away things that even appear as they are not from His Word. Especially when it comes to His Word, like church doctrines and religion. He is always there protecting you and loving you, especially when you are serving Him. Let’s go here:

Joshua 1:1 “Now after the death of Moses the servant of the LORD it came to pass, that the LORD spake unto Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ minister, saying.”
Joshua 1:2 “Moses My servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou, and all this People, unto the land which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel.”
Joshua 1:3 “Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses.”
Joshua 1:4 “From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your coast.”
Joshua 1:5 “There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”

Just like God lead Moses and the people of Israel all the way almost into the promised land. The LORD providing them with manna, angels’ food, and providing them water, making their clothing not rot. Providing His light by night and during the day His cover of the cloud as in Exodus. The LORD telling also Joshua who did lead the people of Israel. An example of God’s Word as remember we are to be warned by example, a type of savior, as Joshua, means Jesus in English. Leading the people to the promised land that the LORD had promised them. The LORD is there always, every day of the week, every hour, every instant of a second, ready to help you understand His Word. Hearing your prayers and loving you, so talk with Him, for He is there. So many times this verse is misunderstood:

Psalms 22:1 “(To the chief Musician, upon Aijeleth Shahar. A Psalm of David.) My GOD, my GOD, why hast thou forsaken me?” Why art Thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?”

Jesus is quoting David’s psalm on the cross. He read the entire Psalms 22 on the cross warning us, and teaching us that His Word told us this would happen written hundreds of years before His crucifixion happened. The Lord here Who is on the right hand of God:

Psalms 110:1 “(A Psalm of David.) The LORD said unto my Lord, “Sit Thou at My right hand, Until I make Thine enemies Thy footstool.”

The LORD Jehovah said to His Lord, Jesus, sit on His right hand. This again is the Psalms 22:1 that Jesus is quoting from, as He always called the LORD God, Father, not GOD. Moving along:

Hebrews 13:6 “So that we may boldly say, “The LORD is my Helper, and I will not fear what man shall unto me.”

This is quoting from here:

Psalms 118:1 “O give thanks unto the LORD; for He is good: because His mercy endureth for ever.”
Psalms 118:2 “Let Israel now say, That His mercy endureth for ever.”
Psalms 118:3 “Let the house of Aaron now say, That His mercy endureth for ever.”
Psalms 118:4 “Let them now that fear the LORD say, That His mercy endureth for ever.”
Psalms 118:5 “I called upon THE LORD in distress: THE LORD answered me, and set me in a large place.”
Psalms 118:6 “The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: What can man do unto me?”

We can praise the LORD God for He is real. His Word is truth and we can rest in that fact. Religion and churches come and go, but we can always count on His Word for happening! His mercy, meaning His great forgiveness, His love for His people is forever and eternal. He is right there, so open up and talk to Him! He is waiting to hear from you! Don’t always go when you are in trouble, but respect Him, love Him, and thank Him for the many wonderful people He has put in your life and the blessings He has given you, as I try to do. No person cannot fight against the power of GOD, for HE is real and His Word eternal. Keep Him on your side. As here, He is our rereward, our front Guard, our back Guard, all our sides Guard, here:

Isaiah 52:12 “For ye shall not go out with haste, nor go by flight: for the LORD will go before you; and the God of Israel will be your rereward.”
rereward (Strong’s 622) rearguard; to gather for any purpose; hence to receive, take away, i.e. remove (destroy, leave behind, put up; restore, etc) assemble, bring, consume, destroy, fetch, gather (in, together up again); recover (another from leprosy); be (rereward); surely, take (away, into, up); utterly withdraw.

Moving along here:

Hebrews 13:7 “Remember them which have rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God; whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.”

Especially in these end times. As here we see with Paul and the elect who are standing up for His Word. They are persecuted so you want to obey all laws and be peaceful with people, if possible. We are His representatives, and witnesses so what we do will be looked at by others. Moving along:

Hebrews 13:8 “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.”

We can count on Him. He is right there for us, just a prayer away. His Word is right there, so crack that Bible open as here:

Revelation 10:8 “And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, “Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.”
Revelation 10:9 “And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, “Give me the little book.” And he said unto me, “Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.”
Revelation 10:10 “And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.”
Revelation 10:11 “And he said unto me, “Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and

The angel then gave it to John after he asked him for it. He then had to open it up, read it. As we all that serve Him prophesying, meaning teaching His Word, as when we teach it, so much of it happens right in front of us in these end times. The Lord is eternal as here:

John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
John 1:2 “The same was in the beginning with God.”

In the beginning was God’s Word and the Word is God. Again know Him by knowing His Word and be saved, otherwise like the majority of this final generation of the fig tree in Mark 13:28 we live in, will worship Satan as in Revelation 20:8 worshipping him and deceived by him when he comes in our near future before Jesus as in II Thessalonians 2:3-4. There is nothing new with God for He is eternal, real and natural. Moving along:

Hebrews 13:9 “Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein.”
divers (Strong’s 4164) motley, i.e. various in character; divers, manifold.

The subject here is false doctrine, like church doctrine or religious doctrine not founded in His Word. Like the “rapture” which is not in God’s Word, except for the fact that God tells us to teach against people that teach this here:

Ezekiel 13:18 “And say, ‘Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe to the (women) that sew pillows to all armholes, and make kerchiefs upon the head of every stature to hunt souls! Will ye hunt the souls alive (that come) unto (you)?”
Ezekiel 13:19 “And will ye pollute Me among My People for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, to slay the souls that should not die, and to save the souls alive that should not live, by your lying to My People that hear your lies?”
Ezekiel 13:20 “Wherefore thus saith the Lord GOD; ‘Behold, I am against your pillows, wherewith ye there hunt the souls to make them fly, and I will tear them from your arms, and will let the souls go, even the souls that ye hunt to make them fly.”
Ezekiel 13:21 “Your kerchiefs also will I tear, and deliver My People out of your hand, and they shall be no more in your hand to be hunted; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.”
Ezekiel 13:22 “Because with lies ye have made the heart of the righteous sad, when I have not made sad; and strengthened the hands of the wicked, that he should not return from his wicked way, by promising him life:”
Ezekiel 13:23 “Therefore ye shall see no more vanity, nor divine divinations: for I will deliver My People out of your hand: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.’’”

These preachers that hunt God’s People to make a buck or handfuls of barley or pieces of bread, HE will rip off those lies from their eyes and outstretched arms when Jesus’s feet the Mount of Olives as in Zechariah 14:4. Now the word “Easter” is not in God’s. Easter is a pagan holiday for a goddess, Istare, held near the Passover date. The preachers used that holiday to get people into the congregation, but the opposite happened. The word “Passover” got changed into “Easter”:

Acts 12:4 “And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.”
Easter (Strong’s 3957) the Passover (the meal, the day, the festival or the special sacrifices connected with it); Easter, Passover; (compare Chaldee Strong’s 6453) a pretermission, i.e. exemption; used only technically of the Jewish Passover (the festival or the victim); Passover (offering); (from Strong’s 6452) to hope, i.e. skip over (or spare); by implication to hesitate; also to limp, to dance, leap, pass over.

That is why it is so important we check out the original language with a concordance or dictionary so you can read for yourself the actual word and you decide based on the meaning of the sentence if something fits. As you see above the Word “Pascha” in the Greek is the Passover, not a pagan holiday Easter, passover meaning to pass over, skip over like the death angel did when the children of Israel:

Exodus 12:1 “And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying,
Exodus 12:2 “This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.”
Exodus 12:6 “And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening.”
Exodus 12:7 “And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it.”
Exodus 12:8 “And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.”
Exodus 12:9 “Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roast with fire; his head with his legs, and with the purtenance thereof.”
Exodus 12:10 “And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; and that which remained of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire.”
Exodus 12:11 “And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the LORD’S passover.
Exodus 12:12 “For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD.”
Exodus 12:13 “And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.”
Exodus 12:27 “That ye shall say, ‘It is the sacrifice of the LORD’S passover, Who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when He smote the Egyptians, and delivered our houses.’” And the People bowed the head and worshipped.”

God’s commandment here to Moses, which remember we just read Jesus then became our Passover Lamb in
This is the symbolic example of what happens when we put Jesus Christ, Our Passover Lamb that gave His Life once and for all sin, so we have His blood covering our homes and our lives keeping away the enemy, the death angel which is Satan. Today Jesus Christ is our cover. Satan is coming back with his fallen angels when Revelation 12:7-9 happens in the very near future. Then back to Hebrews 13:9, regarding false doctrine, the word “divers” here the same as in Hebrews 13:9:

II Timothy 3:6 “For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts.”
II Timothy 3:7 “Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”
silly women (Strong’s 1133) a little (i.e. foolish) woman; (a diminished from Strong’s 1135) a woman, specifically a wife.
divers (Strong’s 4164) motley or diversified in color, i.e. various in character, divers, manifold.

These false teachers come in, and remember both men and women, are the many membered Wife and Bride of Jesus, so spiritually. They bring in these different teachings, like that “rapture” as we read in Ezekiel 13:20 the LORD God told us to teach against. You have to founded in God’s Word to know when someone is bringing you the truth of His Word. So check me, or any other teacher, religion, or church, religious leader, bringing you the Word of God. Be ready and be prepared, for they are out there all over the place. Moving along:

Hebrews 13:10 “We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat which serve the tabernacle.”
Hebrews 13:11 “For the bodies of those beasts, whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned without the camp.”

The body of the animal sacrificed was taken out of the camp, as that place was holy ground used to serve the LORD as here:

Leviticus 4:14 “When the sin, which they have sinned against it, is known, then the congregation shall offer a young bullock for the sin, and bring him before the tabernacle of the congregation.”
Leviticus 4:15 “And the elders of the congregation shall lay their hands upon the head of the bullock before the LORD: and the bullock shall be killed before the LORD.”
Leviticus 4:16 “And the priest that is anointed shall bring of the bullock’s blood to the tabernacle of the congregation:”
Leviticus 4:17 “And the priest shall dip his finger in some of the blood, and sprinkle it seven times before the LORD, even before the vail.”
Leviticus 4:18 “And he shall put some of the blood upon the horns of the altar which is before the LORD, that is in the tabernacle of the congregation, and shall pour out all the blood at the bottom of the altar of the burnt offering, which is at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.”
Leviticus 4:19 “And he shall take all his fat from him, and burn it upon the altar.”

The blood then representing that sacrifice for the peoples’ sin. Which today no blood sacrifice is to be given for that is an abomination to GOD! The blood of Jesus then atoned our sin once and for all times and satisfied the law, or the Word of God. Moving along:

Hebrews 13:12 “Wherefore Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people with His own blood, suffered without the gate.”
Hebrews 13:13 “Let us go forth therefore unto Him without the camp, bearing His reproach.”
Hebrews 13:14 “For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.”

Jesus then according to the Word of God, was sacrificed outside of the gate, here:

Matthew 27:33 “And when they came unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull.”
Matthew 27:34 “They gave Him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when He had tasted thereof, He would not drink.”
Matthew 27:35 “And they crucified Him, and parted His garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, “They parted My garments among them, and upon My vesture did they cast lots.”

This place meaning place of a skull. As we read in Genesis 3:15, Jesus’s heel was bruised by the hand of the serpent’s seed, or his children, the sons of Cain or Kenites who say they are Jews but are the synagogue of Satan as in Revelation 2:9 and Revelation 3:9. They crucified Jesus, as we touched upon as in Psalms 22:

Psalms 22:1 “(To the chief Musician, upon Aijeleth Shahar. A Psalm of David.) My GOD, my GOD, why hast thou forsaken me?” Why art Thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?”
Psalms 22:18 “They parted my garments among them, And cast lots upon my vesture.”
Psalms 22:31 “They shall come, and shall declare His righteousness unto a People that shall be born, That He hath done this.”

His clothing, so each detail of what did happen, written hundreds of years before this, when they parted His clothing and gambled for it, the Roman soldiers. Again Jesus quoted this entire Psalms 22. This is for us, guys, future generations later, especially us today that are to stand up not fly away for God and His Word, for look here what Jesus Christ, the Anointed One in the Greek, what He did because He loved us. He gave up His own life. Jesus is quoting here the last line of Psalms 22:31:

John 19:30 “When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, He said, “It is finished.”

Right before they tried to help His death along out of mercy the cheap wine vinegar, He reads Psalms 22:31, it is finished is the equivalent of That He hath done this. Jesus Christ did this for you and me. He loves us and is so very longsuffering that He has given us His Word so that we can have eternity with Him. Friends, Satan will come first as God has told us beforehand. Moving along:

Hebrews 13:15 “By Him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to His name.”

The most important thing you can tell Heavenly Father is that you love Him. That is the fruit of our lips and thank Him, as I try to do, for all the wonderful things HE blesses us in life. HE is awesome and real so just talk with Him! As here:

Hosea 6:6 “For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.”

This is the righteous and obedient things for us to do, as before Jesus came the blood sacrifices and burnt offerings. But most important it is our love, our mercy for Him. Let’s go here:

Matthew 9:10 “And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold many publicans and sinners came and sat down with Him and His disciples.”
Matthew 9:11 “And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto His disciples, “Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners?”
Matthew 9:12 “But when Jesus heart that, He said unto them, “They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.”
Matthew 9:13 “But go ye and learn what that meaneth, ‘I will have mercy, and not sacrifice:’ for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”

Jesus went to the publicans, or the tax collectors, and sinners, for we all are and ate with them and His disciples. These religious Pharisees, the sons of Cain, or the serpent’s seed of Genesis 3:15 we just read about, accusing Him. That way then we know by the fruit of their lips, their accusations they are Satan’s children. Then Jesus telling us by His example that is who we are to go to. Not judge people as we all sin, and you never know who GOD will send you to. The most important reason is that the LORD wants our mercy and our love, and these people loved the Lord. They accepted Him in their homes and wanted Him there. So like so many religious or people who think they are holy, take this example by what the Lord did, as you can always tell by what someone does, their actions, not by saying “I am a believer” or “I’m a Christian”, that’s meaningless. It’s what we all do that shows character, so be open to who God will send you to as Jesus did, and we are following His Example, His Word. Moving along:

Hebrews 13:16 “But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.”

Again be open to people and talk to them. Be cheerful, even if you are going through a challenge, and ready to help. Shine His light to the world as here:

Matthew 5:14 “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.”
Matthew 5:15 “Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.”
Matthew 5:16 “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father Which is in heaven.”
Matthew 5:17 “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.”
Matthew 5:18 “For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.”

Let the truth of the Word of God shine. That is your faith that you are a believer and know that His Word and His truth is real. We cannot shut off, nor do we want to! His Joy that is our hearts, those of us that believe His Word and love Him! That is the witness His Word is talking about, that lifts up other people when they may be going through something challenging or terrible. Our good works, our actions by the blood of Jesus, by giving His life for our sins, that sin is washed away making our actions right. This makes Heavenly Father happy and this glorifies Him! Jesus came here to fulfil, as we read the Passover Lamb, that died one time for all sin. The law, meaning the Word of God, or the Bible, was not for Jesus to destroy but to fulfil. Then again, heaven and earth will pass away, or the flesh age will end, but the Word of God is eternal! We can count on Him. The most important thing we can do to serve the Lord is as here:

John 21:15 “So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou Me more than these? He saith unto Him, “Yea, Lord; Thou knowest that I love Thee.” He saith unto him, “Feed My lambs.”
John 21:16 “He saith to him again the second time, “Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou Me?” He saith unto Him, “Yea, Lord; Thou knowest that I love Thee.” He saith unto him, “Feed My sheep.”
John 21:17 “He saith unto him the third time, “Lovest thou Me?” And he said unto Him, “Lord, knowest that I love Thee.” Jesus saith unto him, “Feed My sheep.”

We can feed the believers with the Word of God. Not what some church or religion teach but His Word, going chapter by chapter and verse by verse, following the precept, or the subject. This way each group of people, the three levels we are teach, that way each person at the level they are at can pick up something. Then remembering and praying for the others, the other believers in His Word:

Ephesians 6:18 “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints,”

That is part of our gospel armor and what we fight with here on earth against Satan. As here:

Revelation 8:3 “And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.”

The prayers of the saints they are in a bottle, or vial, at God’s throne as they are precious to Him. So you think about if God hears your prayers, they are that precious to Him! Moving along:

Hebrews 13:17 “Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account; that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.”

Again, always obey all law, that way, as here in the United States, those rights and laws protect you. As we have the right of freedom of religion. Again, be a believable witness for God and know that others are always watching you, to see how you react to situations, especially challenges. Be faithful to God and HE will to you. Also here:

Colossians 3:22 “Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God:”
Colossians 3:23 “And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;”
Colossians 3:24 “Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.”

Don’t worry about what people think, but more about pleasing God. Know His Word so you know what is truth and what is not. We are His children and He wants to bless us, so remember Him and His Word, not trying to be everyone’s friend, but be His friend! Moving along:

Hebrews 13:18 “Pray for us: for we trust we have a good conscience, in all things willing to live honestly.”

Remember Paul and the other teachers of God’s Word were persecuted, Paul in prison at this time for teaching God’s Word and awaiting His trial. Also live honestly, again, being a good example for others, and that way nobody can accuse you for something you did, for they will try and accuse you anyway as God’s servant. Jesus then gives us the famous Lord’s prayer here:

Matthew 6:1 “Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father Which is in heaven.”
Matthew 6:6 “But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closest, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father Which in in secret; and thy Father Which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.”
Matthew 6:7 “But when ye pray, use not vain repetition, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.”
Matthew 6:8 “Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knowest what things ye have need of, before ye ask Him.”
Matthew 6:9 “After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father Which art in heaven, Hallowed by Thy name.”
Matthew 6:10 “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.”
Matthew 6:11 “Give us this day our daily bread.”
Matthew 6:12 “And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.”
Matthew 6:13 “And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.”

Don’t be showing off in front of others. Like paying tithing, as all of these offerings should be done in private. That is between you and Heavenly Father. Then when praying go in secret, not for the motive off showing off that you are so “holy” or “Christian” as many do out of ignorance. Not in vain repetition, like chanting because they think if they do this, like some religions, God will hear them! This is an example of how to pray, not a prayer we are to repeat word by word, but it is a good example. Remember Heavenly Father wants our real true love, not some fake repeated prayer, over and over, just like you wouldn’t want to hear that from a loved one. Always remembering Him, and holy or hallowed is His name, Which is The Word of God. His kingdom when Jesus came the first time when He came as Savior, was crucified for our sins, as a Teacher. Always pray that if something is in God’s Will or for His Will in your loved ones lives. You may be asking for something you don’t need, and HE knows best! Always forgive others, then go to Him and ask for His forgiveness. That doesn’t mean you have to forget what someone did to you, or let them repeatedly walk all over you. But forgive them, move on. Then Heavenly Father will do the same thing for you. Ask for His guidance in your life, and deliver us from evil for Satan will come first. The way he teaches best is through religion and churches. Ask for Heavenly Father’s help when learning about His Word. Then Amen, or that’s it! Also let’s go here:

Matthew 18:19 “Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of My Father Which is in heaven.”
Matthew 18:20 “For where two or three are gathered together in My name, there am I in the midst of them.”

Especially when we pray together in a group, like a cancer healing when we pray in the name of Jesus, His Son, HE is right there praying with you to Heavenly Father! Moving along here:

Hebrews 13:19 “But I beseech you the rather to do this, that I may be restored to you the sooner.”
Hebrews 13:20 “Now the God of peace, That brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant,”
Hebrews 13:21 “Make you perfect in every good work to do His will, working in you that which is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ; to Whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.”
Hebrews 13:22 “And I beseech you, brethren, suffer the word of exhortation: for I have written a letter unto you in few words.”
exhortation (Strong’s 3874) imploration, giving advice, solace, comfort, consolation, intreaty; (from Strong’s 3870) to call near, to invite, good comfort, desire, pray.

His Word is what perfects, or makes us more mature as Christians or as believers of the Word of God. Amen and the fact and reality that His Word is truth, that His kingdom is forever, it is eternal, as HE is eternal. Then Paul warning this letter, or the Book of Hebrews, written for exhortation, or advice and truth from the Lord. Then going here:

Hebrews 13:23 “Know ye that our brother Timothy is set at liberty; with whom, if he come shortly, I will see you.”

Then Timothy, of the book of Timothy, with Paul was released from prison from teaching God’s Word. Then Paul did send him to teach the people there at that church. Also here:

I Corinthians 4:17 “For this cause have I sent unto you Timotheus, who is my beloved son, and faithful in the Lord, who shall bring you into remembrance of my ways which be in Christ, as I teach every where in every church.”

Moving along:

Hebrews 13:24 “Salute all them that have the rule over you, and all the saints. They of Italy salute you.”

Paul was in prison awaiting his trial held in Rome, Italy. As here:

Acts 27:1 “And when it was determined that we should sail into Italy, they delivered Paul and certain other prisoners unto one named Julius, a centurion of Augustus’ band.”

Paul delivered there for his trial as he was a Roman citizen, again for teaching God’s Word. Finishing here:

Hebrews 13:25 “Grace be with you all. Amen.”

Peace and love to you all. Amen, meaning again, that’s it. The end of the message. Pray to Heavenly Father in the name of Our Lord Jesus and ask for His help, especially when it comes to understanding His message to you. He is right there and loves you all so much. I love you so much and encourage you to keep trying to understand His Word. You will not receive it all at once, but piece by piece. But just keep trying and ask for His help because He is right by your side. He loves you so much, and so do I! Keep in the Word of God that is our salvation.
