Cary Cox, from Hebrews 12:25-29. The writer of Hebrews gives his final warning of the book. He calls us to listen to the God who has spoken in the gospel of Christ. We must hear and obey what he has spoken, because judgment is coming! God will shake the heavens and the earth, and only his unshakeable kingdom will remain.
Cary Cox, from Hebrews 10:26-39. The powerful warnings of Hebrews come to a climax, as two paths are set before us: We can shrink back from the church and ultimately from Christ, and face the fiery judgment of God. Or, we can draw near in faith until the end with the people of God, and receive the reward.
Cary Cox, from Hebrews 5:11 – 6:3. The writer pauses his teaching on Christ’s priesthood to give a serious warning. He will warn against apostasy – turning finally from the faith. But first, he tells us what leads to apostasy: prolonged spiritual immaturity, which is caused by laziness in the things of God. When we fail to grow up in Christ we are walking on dangerous ground.
Cary Cox, from Hebrews 4:1-13. Though there is a great promise of God’s rest for us, there are also serious warnings about unbelief. God’s word judges us perfectly; it lays us bare before God. We must hear the promise and heed the warnings, and strive to enter God’s rest through faith in Jesus Christ!
Cary Cox, from Hebrews 3:7-19. Israel could not enter the promised land because of unbelief – God swore they would not enter his rest. The writer of Hebrews warns Christians not to repeat this mistake of hardening our hearts at God’s better word – Jesus Christ. He calls us to watch out for the poison of unbelief in the church congregation by devoting ourselves to daily ministry to our brothers and sisters in Christ!
