If God took an oath would you trust it?
If God made a promise would that give you hope?
Please read Hebrews 6:13-20
This passage starts out by talking about the promise God made to Abraham. According to this passage He “swore by Himself.” Basically God made an oath and swore that He would do something.
Here is the faith part:
Vs. 15 “And after waiting patiently, Abraham received what was promised.”
Faith grows and Grace lives moment to moment as we awaken to what Jesus is doing in our lives to allow Love to flow through us.
Enjoy the moment!!! It comes from God and was brought to you by way of the cross.
God wanted to “put an end to all argument” and as a result He sent His only Son Jesus-
Vs. 17 “Because God wanted to make the unchanging nature of His purpose very clear to the heirs of what was promised, He confirmed it with an oath.”
What was the unchanging nature of His promise?
Was it to have a realtionship with His creations like He wanted in the Garden of Eden?
Could it be that Jesus was the culmination of making that relationship possible, which the law could never do?
Could it be that the purpose of the law was to bring me to that promise as Jesus is the only way to the Father?
Vs. 18 “God did this so that by two unchangable things in which it is impossible for God to lie we who have fled to take hold of this hope set before us may be greatly encouraged. We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtains, where our forerunner, Jesus has entered on our behalf. He has become our high priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.”
God swore and took an oath to Abraham and He also took an oath to you and me. That oath is Jesus and He is there as our permanent high priest forever. Not the law and not your guilt and shame- those are the things you can flee and take a hold of the encouragment and peace that passes all understanding that came from that old rugged cross.
GOD IS LOVE and that is His OATH to you and me!!
