Letter to the Hebrews

Introduction

Portions of the Ecclesia, called the church, not knowing of the early Jewish culture and the languages of the day, have developed gross misconceptions concerning the intent of the letter called 'Hebrews'.  The letter was written to the Jewish converts who obviously lived in the time of Christ Jesus.  The Epistle to the Hebrews was not designed by the writer, probably Paul, to be parsed over, and erroneously deemed to be God's doctrine speaking to the gentile church/ecclesia.  The main purpose of the letter to the Hebrews was to address some of the misunderstandings of the Jewish converts that had come to believe in Messiah Yeshua/Jesus the Christ.  The letter was written directly to the new Jewish believers, too clarify the fullness of God's New Covenant in the Sacrificial LIFE giving Blood of Jesus Christ that initiated Yahweh's Great Salvation Gift of True LIFE. 

Unfortunately, much of the leadership of the protestant churches, have unwittingly established their own stumbling blocks that are continually perpetuated by puppet pastors in their circuitous circles of learning.  Also the various catholic churches have developed their own corrupt teachings that imprisons their people to the vanity of their institution.  We will see in the heresies that some of the teachers on God's Holy Matter have given license to sin, and have dismissed God's New Covenant of Sanctifying Grace through Yahweh's Holy Spirit of Grace IN Christ Jesus.  Within our Thanksgiving Communion with the Almighty Yahweh God, we  are to know that God's Holy Spirit of TRUTH and Grace provides the Body and Life giving Blood of the Almighty's Only Begotten Son, Yeshua haMashiach.  However, presently the TRUTH IN Holy Communion for repentant believers, is erroneously seen by the evangelicals as a superfluous doctrine by superstitious men.  The ignorant teachings of finite man have supplanted the fullness of the Infinite Holy Yahweh God's New Covenant Doctrine that He eternally established in the LIFE Giving Sacrificial Blood of Jesus Christ, Yeshua haMashiach.

To the Jewish converts, the author of the letter to the Hebrews, begins to expound upon the Supreme Greatness of the Messiah of Yahweh God.

In the past, God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways:  But in these last days He has spoken to us by His Son, Whom He appointed Heir of all things, and through Whom also He made the universe. The Son is the Radiance of Godís Glory and the exact Representation of His Being, sustaining all things by His Powerful Word.  After He had provided purification for sins, He sat down at the Right Hand of the Majesty in Heaven. (Hebrews 1 verse 1 thru 3.  NIV)  Heaven in this case is probably timeless Eternity.

Behold the days come says the Lord, that I will make a New Covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant I made with their fathers when I took them by the hand to bring them out of Egypt. (See all of Jeremiah 31 verse 31 thru 35.) 

Now, when Yahweh God's appointed time had come, then on the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, Nissan the 15th, the Lord Yeshua/Jesus Christ, the Promised One of Yahweh, instituted the New Covenant IN His Body and Blood that was received by the 11 of  His chosen disciples.  This was Yahweh God's everlasting Covenant that was to be received by repentant sinners for the remission of their confessed sins.  This new Covenant was not only for the present day disciples, but for all that would come to believe IN Yahweh's WORD of Salvation Yeshua haMashiach.  This took place on the Feast of Unleavened Bread, when the Lord Yeshua/Jesus Blessed the Unleavened Bread, and Said: Take and eat, for this is My Body. Then of the wine Jesus/Yeshua Said: Drink all of you. This is My Blood of the New Covenant, shed for many for the remission of sin

Now consider closely of that which is seldom addressed by the clergy that Christ Jesus was the "Lamb of God, crucified before the foundation of the world". (1st Peter 1 verse 18 thru 21, John 17 verse 24.) The finality of Yahweh's Promised Lamb Crucified to death before the foundation of the world, was concluded in the flow of time, when the Lamb of God declared with His last breath, "It is finished". 

The Lamb of Yahweh God had totally fulfilled the Promise of His Holy Father Yahweh God, Who had declared before the foundation of the world, that His innocent Lamb would finish the Work of Creation.  For Jesus/Yeshua died a wretched death on the cross for the sins of the world to save mankind from extinction.  With Yeshua's Resurrection IN the LIFE of His Father, the New Covenant had been affirmed: For After He had provided purification for sins, He sat down at the Right Hand of the Majesty IN Heaven (Eternity).  The TRUTH of why Yahweh God's Son came to earth IN the Flesh of Man/Adam, was confirmed IN Christ Messiah's crucifixion death, and with His resurrection into the LIFE of His Father, God's New Covenant, which was Eternally established IN the LIFE Blood of God's unblemished Lamb.  Nevertheless, Sin does not cease in the human flesh, not even in the saved Christian, for sin will persistently occur in the flesh of all of mankind and needs to be purified: For all sin must be humbly released into the crucified Hands of our High Priest, the Man Christ Jesus, Who will faithfully cleanse the affliction of sin.

For unto which of the angels said God at any time: Thou Art My Son this day have I begotten Thee.  Kiss the Son, unless He becomes angry, and you perish from The WAY, when His wrath be kindled but a little.  Blessed are they that put their trust IN HIM.
(See Psalm 2 verse 7, 12  in concert with  Hebrews 1 verse 5.)

And to His Son, the Almighty Yahweh God declares of the Messiah:

Thy Throne, O God, is for ever and ever: A Scepter of Righteousness is the Scepter of Thy Kingdom.  Thou has loved righteousness and hated iniquity; therefore God, Thy God, has anointed Thee with the oil of gladness above Thy fellows.
(Compare Hebrews 1 verse 8 thru 12, and Psalm 45 verse 6 thru 7, and Psalm 102 verse 24 thru 28, and Psalm 110 verse 1.)

For we see Jesus/Yeshua, [The Son of Adam] Who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor; that He by the Grace of Yahweh God should taste death for every man. (See Hebrews 2 verse 9 thru 10,16 thru 17.)
