Hebrews 2

Do Not Neglect Salvation

Hebrews 2:Therefore we must give the more earnest heed (all the more careful attention) to the things we have heard, lest we drift away.
Hebrews 2:For if the word spoken through angels proved steadfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just reward (retribution or penalty),
Hebrews 2:how shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed to us by those who heard Him,
  • To neglect is to put off, take lightly, ignore and reject entirely.
    • Felix put it off Acts 24:25, Jesus’ brother’s took it lightly John 7:5, the crowds ignored it John 6:61, Judas with the scribes and Pharisees rejected it entirely Matthew 26:14.
  • Why makes this salvation so great?
    • The law has been fulfilled by the blood of Jesus.
    • When the rapture occurs at the beginning of the tribulation, when all believers meet the Lord in the air, there will no longer be “the age of grace”. It will be the law which says “Do NOT take the mark of the beast”. One will almost have to be a beheaded martyr in order to find the salvation during the tribulation. By the end of the seven year tribulation only a remnant who rejected the Mark of the Beast will escape and it will be said “They could have escaped before the tribulation if they have not neglected the great salvation of the age of grace. Once the rapture occurs it will as it was in the days of Noah, and like the sealed door on the Ark it is now too late. The wrath of God will rain down on the earth and the entire world will be flooded in affliction.
    • Only those who “died to self” being baptized by the Spirit during the age of grace will enter the Ark and escape the day of God’s wrath. The word “Ark” means “Coffin”. Believers, like Noah, will be resurrected to a new life.
Hebrews 2:God also bearing witness both with signs and wonders, with various miracles, and gifts (distributions) of the Holy Spirit, according to His own will?

The Son Made Lower than Angels

Hebrews 2:For He has not put the world to come, of which we speak, in subjection to angels.
Hebrews 2:But one testified in a certain place, saying:
“What is man that You are mindful of him,
Or the son of man that You take care of him?
Hebrews 2:You have made him a little lower (Or for a little while) than the angels;
You have crowned him with glory and honor,
And set him over the works of Your hands.
Hebrews 2:You have put all things in subjection under his feet.”
For in that He put all in subjection under him, He left nothing that is not put under him. But now we do not yet see all things put under him.
  • Sandals and shoes, or feet, are symbolic of authority.
  • The dream of Nebuchadnezzar’s great image of a statue shows a rock (Jesus) coming out of heaven and striking the statue on its feet bringing down all the kingdoms of the world: Daniel chapter 2. Those kingdoms become chaff and are blown away.
  • Zechariah 14:3 Then the Lord will go forth And fight against those nations, As He fights in the day of battle. (At Jesus’ return to earth to set up His kingdom: The Rock that grows into a mountain (Daniel chapter 2)
Hebrews 2:But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower (Or: for a little while) than the angels, for the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for everyone.

Bringing Many Sons to Glory

Hebrews 2:10 For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
Hebrews 2:11 For both He who [sets apart] sanctifies (Note: makes holy) and those who are being sanctified are all of one, for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren,
Hebrews 2:12 saying:
“I will declare Your name to My brethren;
In the midst of the assembly I will sing praise to You.”
Hebrews 2:13 And again:
“I will put My trust in Him.”
And again:
“Here am I and the children whom God has given Me.”
Hebrews 2:14 Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil,
Hebrews 2:15 and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
Hebrews 2:16 For indeed He does not give aid to angels (Or take on the nature of), but He does give aid to (Or take on) the seed of Abraham.
Hebrews 2:17 Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.
Hebrews 2:18 For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted (Or: tested), He is able to aid those who are tempted.
