A Final Charge (Part 2)

 Heb. 10:21-11:31

Dalton Gilreath

Think about…

I.                 Your Brethren, Heb. 10:24-25

Think about your brethren - Come to services – be here for your brethren and not just yourself

“But I don’t care what others think or about pleasing people”…Paul tried to please everyone

We must please everyone to edification as Christ did

Application: Be here for one another, be selfless like the Lord

II.               Your Soul, Heb. 10:26-31, 35

Think about the consequences and rewards

Falling back into sin is a terrible end – see = darkness, hear – screams and gnashing, feel = fire/burning, smell = burning brimstone/sulfur (rotten eggs), taste = grinding teeth and great thirst

Rewards are seeing – city of gold (pavement story) and God Himself, hear (angels singing), feel = joy/comfort/peace, smell = we can only imagine, taste = never hunger or thirst again

Application: Think about your soul’s eternal destination

III.              Abel, Heb. 11:4

Think about Abel who remained faithful despite family opposition

Family can’t come before God

He won’t leave you alone

Application: Don’t fall away because of family opposition

IV.             Enoch, Heb. 11:15

Think about Enoch whose humanity did not get in the way

Some might say they are only human and give up on fighting sin

Put on your big boy pants and fight don’t give up

V.               Noah, Heb. 11:7

Think about Noah who didn’t cave to peer pressure

Evil companions

Majority doesn’t rule – funny thing is us + God is majority

Elisha’s servant needed to see it for himself but he had the majority – angels outnumber man bigtime

A.     1 Cor. 15:33

B.     Matt. 7:13-14

C.     2 Kings 6:15-17

VI.             Abraham, Heb. 11:8

Think about Abraham who went without an overabundance of evidence

Let nature remind you

Let design remind you

A.     Rom. 1:20

B.     Heb. 3:4

VII.            Isaac, Jacob and Joseph, Heb. 11:20-22

Think about Isaac, Jacob and Joseph who were future minded

David lived in the now for a moment not thinking of the future (what about when Uriah gets back, what if she gets pregnant, what will my God think?)

Joseph thought how will this affect my master and my Master

A.     2 Sam. 11:1-4

B.     Gen. 39:8-9

VIII.          Moses, Heb. 11:27

Triumphing of wicked is a moment – rich man had it all on earth

Think about Moses who did not fear the government

Obey government sure

But not at our soul’s expense

A.     Rom. 13:1ff

B.     Acts 5:29
