hebrews commentary spurgeon
“But Christ”-, Christ has entered into the true holy place, — not into that which was curtained with a veil, which was but a type, and which was put away when the veil was rent from the top to the bottom as Jesus died; he has entered into the immediate presence of God, and he has entered there once for all, “having obtained eternal redemption for us.”. May God’s grace always keep any of you from turning back; for it is to turn back unto perdition! Our faith has introduced us into joyful rest. The things that are not seen are eternal, and shall abide for ever. Though almost driven to desperation, he would not give up his faith in God. Why, that we shall never be permitted to do so,-that the grace of God will keep us so that, although we may fall like Peter, we shall not fall away like Judas,-that, though we may sin, there shall not be that degree of studied willfulness about it that would make it to be the sin unto death, a deliberate act of spiritual suicide. The Levitical priests continually repeated their sacrifice, for it was not effectual when offered only once; but our great High Priest has once for all presented a sacrifice which has made a full atonement for all his people’s sins, and there is therefore no need for it to be repeated. I must confess I have not believed what I have been told, for it is contrary to those many Scriptures which declare that "if these shall fall away, it is impossible to renew them again unto repentance.

You see, then, that the apostle had first made a distinction between Christ and Moses on the ground of, the Builder being greater than the house he builds; now, in the second place, he shows Christ’s superiority to Moses on the ground that a son in his own house is greater than a servant in the house of his master. Dr. Owen most comfortingly remarks:—"Whatever our changes may be, inward or outward, yet Christ changing not, our eternal condition is secured, and relief provided against all present troubles and miseries. “ Let us run with patience, “ run when we are out of breath, run when our bones ache, run when the prize seems to be further off than ever, and to be hidden from our eyes, run when the hot sun makes us athirst,-still “ let us run with patience the race that is set before us,” for it is he that endureth unto the end who shall be saved;- not merely the starter in the race, for there are many who begin, and who begin not in the power of the Spirit of God, and who therefore do not persevere unto the end By this sign shall the true children of God be known, that they run with endurance unto the end, “ looking unto Jesus.” As the wife of the Persian nobleman said, when her husband asked her what she thought of Darius, that she had not looked at him, she had no eyes for any man but her husband, so the Christian has no eyes for any but Christ,- “ looking unto Jesus,”-keeping his eye always upon him, and so running the Christian race. So may it be! This were to place the …, The Best of All Sights Let brotherly love continue. There remains nothing but His final coming for the judgment of the ungodly, and the acquittal of His redeemed. Hebrews 13:3.

Text Commentaries by C. H. Spurgeon Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892), often known today as the Prince of Preachers, began his pastorate at London's New KJV NKJV NLT NIV ESV CSB NASB. It is not the work of the minister alone to exhort, but the brethren, and the sisters, too, should exhort one another, and seek to stir each other up in the faith and fear of God. May we all be amongst those who are looking for Him! How (the writer) loves to recall this fact! Hebrews 1:1, 2. He would say, “My labor is all thrown away on such a plot of ground as this, nothing more can be done with it, for after having done my utmost nothing but weeds is produced, so now it must be left to itself.” You see, my dear hearers, if it were possible for the work of grace in your souls to be of no avail, nothing more could be done for you. Having taught them nineteen times, and finding that they do not understand or remember the lesson, he is ready to teach them the twentieth time, he is one who will give them line upon line, and precept upon precept, here a little and there a little, because he has compassion on the ignorant. I'll never, no never, no never forsake. Some of the Indian tribes use little strips of cloth instead of money. Upon this supposition, God’s utmost has been tried, and has failed. So may we see the promises, and be persuaded that they belong to us, and embrace them as we clasp to our bosom those who are nearest and dearest to us! Christ was no longer pre-figured, for he was there in person. The old ceremonial law of Moses, — This refers to the old ceremonial law, under which the Jews lived so long. What he does has the Father's decree to back it. Not because there was any sin in him, but that he might be a sympathetic Ruler over his people, he must experience sufferings like those of his subjects; and that he might be s mighty Savior, he must be himself compassed with infirmity, that he might “have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that are out of the way.” Brothers and sisters, do you expect to be made perfect without sufferings? So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me. The Lord, as our loving Father, makes use of the rod that he may make us to be truly holy. THE apostle in this place does not claim to have seen the Lord in the flesh, although he boasts in another passage that he has done so, and asserts it as one of the proofs of his apostleship. It is a glorious mark of our Lord Jesus that he was “called of God an High Priest.” He did not assume this office to himself, but this high honor was laid upon him by God himself. It was denied to prophets and kings in the olden time; but now that it is vouchsafed to us, let us avail ourselves of it, and constantly “let us draw near” unto God “with a true heart in full assurance of faith.”. How could it be? Confessed faith is requisite. John ~ ~ ~ ~ HENRY LAW Commentaries. The apostle, however, desires that the Hebrew believers should understand the sublimer doctrines of the gospel, and so be like men of full age who can eat strong meat. Christ’s second coming will be “without sin,” and without a sin offering, too, wholly apart from sin, unto the salvation of all His chosen. In vv27,28 Here, again, you have the obedience of faith, taking God’s precepts and carrying them out. Does not every day bring us nearer to the coming of the Lord? There was a wondrous confidence in God in that weak, strong man, which though it does not excuse his faults, yet nevertheless puts him in the ranks of the believers. God made him to be his vicegerent on earth; and he would still hold that position were it not that, since he has rebelled against his own Sovereign, even the beasts of the field take liberty to be rebellious against him. "Harden not your hearts." Wherefore, be of good courage, and press forward in the divine life, for your work of faith and labor of love are not in vain in the Lord; so let us “lay hold upon the hope set before us:” —, Sailors throw their anchors downwards; we throw ours upwards. In this chapter our Saviour’s glorious person is very plainly set before us, and it is made the ground of our faith, and a reason why we should give the more earnest heed to his words, lest at any time we should let them slip. I am afraid there are some who consider one another to provoke in quite a different spirit from this,-who watch to find out a tender spot where a wound will be most felt. In your early Christian days, you were pointed at, and regarded as quite singular for being servants of Christ; or, possibly, it was not yourselves so much as your pastors, your leaders, your friends who were prominent in the church, at whom the arrows of the adversaries were aimed. But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city. It was done and could not be undone. One will wickedly say, “If I am a child of God, I may live as I like.” That is damnable doctrine. It is enough for him to bear with your hypocrisies on earth. You have left out the life of the gospel. Those who doubt the truth of the gospel, or who say they do, are often found believing historical statements that are not half as well proved. Keith Simons. The very warning that he gives is a powerful preventive against apostasy. He had to suffer because of sin once, but he will never again have to do that; his sacrifice will never need to be repeated, and never can be repeated. The spur to the racers and wrestlers in the Grecian games was found in the eyes of those who gazed, in the clapping of their hands, in the shouting of their applause, as we as in the prizes that awaited the winners. If he were an unfaithful God, we might naturally be an unbelieving people; but “he is faithful that promised.” Therefore, “let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering.”. Kansas City, Missouri 64118, © 2017 The Spurgeon Center and Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. Hebrews 13:8-9. Faith brings the appointed sacrifice, which is therefore accepted. Knowing of the tendency to licentiousness in all around them, Paul specially warned the Hebrew Christians against that horrible evil. We may rejoice together now, and we ought to do so, if we are all one in Christ Jesus. Amen. If it had not been for their faith, which moved them to accomplish such valiant deeds, we might not have known anything about them. Faith has conquered death itself, or else avoided it. If you run with the footmen, and they weary you how will you contend with horses? Those who cling to the external and ceremonial observances of religion have no right to the privileges which belong to those who come to the spiritual altar; they cannot share that secret. If all the processes of grace fail in the case of any professors, what is to be done with them? Of thy humanity. There were many deaths to work against the life of faith; yet life triumphed over death after all. Let the grandest of all examples nerve us. It will be better than any amulet or talisman that the ancients ever wore. There's not one stroke for me. We grow old; our mind is dull; our heart is occupied with other matters, and we let these heavenly things leak out, or drift by us, as if we were not concerned in them. 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. This volume collects his thoughts on Hebrews in a commentary format, with illustrations and applications culled from his sermons and writings. Hebrews 13:3. Sin is a bitter thing and a defiling thing and unless we look diligently, it will grow in our hearts like the weeds grow in our gardens after a heavy rain, it will spring up before we are aware of it. A true poem should gather force as it grows, and its waves of thought should roll in with greater power as it nears its climax; so should the mighty poem of faith’s glorious history increase in depth and power as it gets nearer to its grand consummation, that God may be glorified yet more and more, through all his believing children. We do not discover the secrets of Creation by mere reason, or the teachings of science; it is only by revelation that the marvellous story can reach us. 1:1-2 Goodwin, Thomas, Three Sermons on Heb.

Scripture References Book of Hebrews. Spurgeon's Verse Exposition Of Hebrews: The Expansive Commentary Collection: Spurgeon, Charles H.: Amazon.com.au: Books He does not say, “then are ye alone.” He is speaking about those who profess to be the children of God, writing concerning those who claim to be members of the Lord’s family, and he stigmatizes with one of the most dreadful of names those who may escape without chastisement; but, brethren who among us would have the pleasure of carnal ease if with it we are to have the shame of spiritual illegitimacy? Virtues without faith are white-washed sins. Aquí lo puedes descargar gratis y completo, de manera sencilla. Shall we desert him now that he has gone into heaven to represent us now that he has fought the fight, and won the victory on our behalf, and gone up to heaven as our Representative? O Christian, as you see the danger that lies before you if you did prove to be an apostate, bless that sovereign grace which will not suffer you so to do, even as Paul wrote to the Philippians, “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.”, What a consoling end this is to the chapter! Let us think of our Lord as the Architect and Builder of his own Church, and let our hearts count him worthy of more glory than Moses; let us give him glory in the highest. Storms vanquish him. This is our Lord Jesus Christ putting his trust in the Father, overcoming by faith, even as we do. Elliot Ritzema. Good Master, have patience with thy servants, and teach us still! There were multitudes of others, beside those whom the apostle named, —, They did not live to see Christ come. Do not believe one thing today, and another thing tomorrow; be not carried about, like the thistledown in the wind. Hebrews 1 – A Superior Savior A. Jesus, the superior Savior. To hold on, to continue to do God’s will,-this is the task. It is faith that muzzles the mouth of death, and takes away the power of the sepulcher. Glory be to his holy name! We, dear friends, when we are trusting in the unseen God, are going back to first principles, we are getting to that which is the essence and the source of all. In perfect Godhead bright! We are to “endure hardness.” The crown cannot be won without it. In this volume we give you Charles H. Spurgeon commentary on the Epistle to the Hebrews. And Christ is God; and he is the Builder of all things in the spiritual realm, — ay, and in the natural kingdom, too, for “without him was not anything made that was made.” So he is to have eternal honor and glory as the one great Master-builder. There is a holy, humble fear that perfect love never casts out, but entertains and cherishes; and this is the kind of fear that Noah possessed: “Being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, he prepared an ark.” Noah was a practical life-saver,— an ark-builder; and so he became the second father of the human race,— a sort of new Adam,— and that simply by his faith. This little commentary is a must read for anyone that wants a clearer understanding and application of the spiritual food found in the book of Hebrews. Ah, but God’s people are not mindful of that country from whence they came out! And what shall I more say? We are often ashamed of ourselves; alas! They come, and they go, as if they were molehills raised on the surface of the earth, or little mounds of sand made by the children’s wooden spades upon the seashore, which the next tide will wash away. for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets: who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness,—. Sympathize with them, says the apostle, “as bound with them.”. AbeBooks.com: Spurgeon Commentary: Hebrews.

Things that we see were not made out of things that we see. Grace COMMENTARIES (The following are considered the best practical and devotional commentaries ever written.) Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body. There will be no escape, there can be none if we refuse the Lord Jesus. There is no truth more plain than this in the whole of the Old Testament; and it must have within it a very weighty lesson to our souls. There is no need; they are hard enough already. You see, dear friends, how glorious was his original — the “express image” of his Father’s person. O you bereaved ones, wear that ring! The material worship is done away with, in order that we may render the spiritual worship of which the material was but the type. Temporary Christians are not really Christians. Under the new covenant, we have not the symbols, but we have the substance itself. It is only by believing the inspired record that we can obtain a true understanding of the wondrous work of creation. He has now ascended up on high, and sits down at the right hand of God’s great Majesty. O professors, take this message home to your hearts!

He has so become partaker of our nature that now we are one family, and he is not ashamed to call us brothers. Let us not repeat the story of unbelieving Israel in our own lives, let us not live and die in the wilderness, but let us go in and take possession of the promised land, the promised rest, in the power of the Holy Spirit. See how faith consecrates natural affection. We may escape the rod if we are not of the family of God, but the true-born child must not, and would not if he might, avoid that chastisement of which all such are partakers. They could not trifle with the angels’ message without receiving just punishment from God. A man may neglect such a child as that, for he is not his legitimate child; and God does not care for professors, who, though they seem to be his children, are not his true sons, so they are pampered, indulged, and spoiled, and left to enjoy themselves while they are here, as the Lord well knows that they will have nothing but sorrow and misery hereafter.

Amen. This is to prove his infinite sympathy with his people, and how he was compassed with infirmity. That is the posture of one whose work is done, and who is taking his rest: “He sat down on the right hand of God; He would not have sat down if his work had not been done. Then, my brother or sister, do not look for a continuing city here. Once cleansed from sin, we are cleansed from sin; the great deed is done once for all, If the worshippers had thus been made perfect; if they had been completely cleansed and accepted through these sacrifices, —. There paid my debt, there bore my load Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge. “He scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.”. This is a practical chapter at the close of this most instructive Epistle. The path of sorrow, and that path alone, “Thou hast kept the best wine until now.” Prophets are a very blessed means of communication, but how much more sure, how much more condescending is it for God to speak to us by his Son! They have opportunity to return; but they have no wish to return. They may think that, because they sin in secret, therefore they shall escape punishment; but it shall not be so. The true priest must have patience with people of this sort. The best part of the report about them is, that they believed their God, and believed all that was revealed to them by his Word and his Spirit. Diamonds only will cut diamonds; the Word of God is its own expositor; the New Testament is the key of the old. He is all-wise; he need not change. They have nothing to do with it, for they are still under the old ceremonial law; and those whose religion consists in outward rites and ceremonies can never eat of the spiritual altar whereat spiritual men eat, for they do not understand the scripture, and they still serve the Mosaic tabernacle. Therefore let those who speak slightingly of his atoning sacrifice see their folly, for it is through death that Christ destroys “him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; “ —, As you know to your cost, for perhaps you have aches and pains about you at this very moment. Spurgeon's Verse Exposition Of Hebrews: The Expansive Commentary Collection eBook: Spurgeon, Charles H.: Amazon.in: Kindle Store As God is ever doing good, so we can never say we have done all we ought to do and will do no more: “To do good and to communicate,” that is, to communicate of your substance, and of your charitable help, “forget not.”. Under all provocations, and under all disappointments, “let brotherly love continue.”, It is supposed to be there already; let it continue, not only love of a common kind, such as we are to have to all men, but that special “brotherly love” which Christians bear to one another as members of one family. Watch over each other as well as over yourselves. Before he fell, through his disobedience, all the animals which God had made were inferior to him, and owned him as their lord and master. All this is evil, so let us avoid it; let us all seek out the good points of our brethren, and consider them, that we may afterwards be the means of guiding them to those peculiar good works for which they are best adapted. We cannot well translate them into English except in such language as that of the verse we were singing just now: The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose, Note: These verse by verse expositional notes by C H Spurgeon represent a compilation from various writings including his individual expositions on this epistle and thus there is some duplication and occasional statements that will seem to begin in the middle of a sentence.

She knows that she is at home, even as Abraham was in his own land; yet like him, she knows herself to be a sojourner in a strange land, and is quite content to be so. He was only a sojourner in the land of promise, he knew that even the promised land was only a tenting-ground for him and his descendants, but he also knew that he was on his way to a divinely-planned and divinely-built city,-not like the temporary cities of earth, which shall all perish and pass away, but a city with everlasting foundations, a city that will last as long as God himself exists. Faith brings a right sacrifice; brings it in the right way; and speaks even after she is dead, for the blood of Abel cried out of the ground. He never sought pardon of God, but only sought to inherit the blessing. Let us ask for it. Spurgeon Commentary: Hebrews collects his thoughts on the epistle in a commentary format, including sermon illustrations and applications culled from his sermons and writings. Do we realize that the Lord Jesus Christ dwells in the midst of us? Jesus is here delightfully called “ the author and finisher of our faith.” In most of the arts, there is a division of labor, one man begins, and another completes; there is scarcely anything that is completed by one man; but the stupendous work of our salvation was not only commenced but it was also completed by the Lord Jesus Christ alone. Hebrews 13:2-3. Faith is always giving blessings to others, and she knows which way to give them, for God maketh her wondrous quick of heart and quick of eye.
