October 23, read through the Holy Bible in a year in Power-point, with comments.

Today we read the twelfth chapter of the letter to the Hebrews and one chapter of Ezekiel.

October 23: Hebrews 12, Ezekiel 14 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

Hebrews 12. Let us fix our eyes to Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith. This and four other “let us” in the book of Hebrews bring us to a total of twelve, all intended to teach us how to live and bring us closer to Jesus and in so doing we get disciplined by God for our benefit. But it also comes with the fifth and final warning to us: “See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven

Ezekiel 14. Idolatry was to be punished, judgment on the Israelis’ unfaithfulness was inescapable.

Hebrews 12, Looking unto Jesus, God’s discipine, do not refuse God!

Proverbs 3:11 My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord; neither be weary of his correction: 12 For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth. (KJV)

Again, the new covenant is mentioned.

This is the fifth and final warning in Hebrews. Let us review them:

It always helps with a song to wake up to in the morning.

 

 

This warning is real and echoes the words of Jesus

 

It is the confession that is the key to building the church.

In this chapter we got four more “let us” to encourage and admonish us.
