    ====================
    GRAB YOUR BIBLES Hebrews 4:12-16
    ====================
    Today my message is going to be about...another aspect of the Lord Jesus Christ:
    (The part of Him....that is also the Word of God!)
    ====================
    LETS READ THE TEXT Hebrews 4:12-16
    ====================
    It is wonderful.....how the LORD makes every teaching in the Bible fit perfectly together!
    ====================
    V.12A “For the word of God”
    -THE CENTER.....OF OUR FAITH-
    (The Lord Jesus Christ:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    Qt. Revelation 19:13 “And he [was] clothed with a vesture
    dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.”
    and........

    Qt. John 1:14 “And the Word was made flesh,”
    ====================
    V.12B “[is] quick, and powerful,”
    -TWO OF THE LORD’S......”OTHER” CHARACTERISTICS-
    (As the word of God:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    Note: “quick” Lit.(“Life”:)
    Jesus...(“the word of God”:)
    Is the only source of all life!
    ====================
    V.12C “and sharper than any twoedged sword,”
    -THE CUTTING POWER...........OF GOD’S WORD-
    (Cutting away....all of our excuses:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    Note: When we study the Bible:
    It’s able to deal with us...in a special way!
    ====================
    V.12D “piercing”
    -THE PENETRATING POWER.......OF GOD’S WORD-
    (Power...to always get...right to the point:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    Note: As we study the Bible:
    It goes right to the heart......of our problems!
    ====================
    V.12E “even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow,”
    -THE EXPOSING POWER......OF THE WORD OF GOD-
    (Separating our sin from it’s hiding places:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    Note: As we study the Bible:
    It reveals “God’s truth” to us:
    ------------------------
    Teaching us what is permitted & what is not!
    ====================
    V.12F “and [is] a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
    -THE REVEALING POWER.......OF GOD’S WORD-
    (Revealing the truth about ourselves to us:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    Note: As we study the Bible:
    It will reveal....any hypocrisy in our life or heart!
    ====================
    V.13A “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight:”
    -NOTHING IS EVER HID.......FROM THE LORD’S SIGHT-
    (The thoughts, feelings, plans & intentions:)
    Of every living thing:
    --------------------------------------------------
    Is known by Him!
    ====================
    V.13B “but all things [are] naked and opened”
    -HE KNOWS MORE ABOUT US...THAN WE COULD EVER KNOW ABOUT OURSELVES-
    (This is why we should be going to Him:)
    For self examination:
    --------------------------------------------------
    So that we can.....draw even closer to Him!
    ====================
    V.13C “unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.”
    -THE CIRCUMSTANCES....IN WHICH WE WILL BE JUDGED-
    (By an all knowing & all seeing God:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    Every one of us.....is going to be accountable to Him:
    For every thing we have done:
    Whether it be good or bad........
    Qt. 2Cor.5:10 "For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ;
    that every one may receive the things [done] in [his] body,
    according to that he hath done, whether [it be] good or bad."

    ====================
    V.14A “Seeing then that we have a great high priest,”
    -ONE MORE HAT.....THE LORD’S WEARS-
    (He is our great High Priest:)
    Who sacrificed Himself for our sins:
    --------------------------------------------------
    And is now in heaven....interceding for us!
    ====================
    V.14B “that is passed into the heavens,”
    -THE LORD’S.....WORK FOR US IN HEAVEN-
    -------------------------
    ➀Defending us from Satan’s attacks:
    ➁Preparing a place for us:
    ➂Building a city for us!
    --------------------------------------------------
    Everything He does....is for “us”!
    ====================
    V.14C “Jesus the Son of God,”
    -MAKING SURE.....THERE IS NO MISUNDERSTANDING-
    (As to who is being talked about here:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    ➀Today there are thousands of false teachers:
    ➁Trying to undo every promise God made to us:
    ➂By casting doubt upon what God’s Word says!
    ====================
    V.14D “let us hold fast [our] profession.”
    -YET ANOTHER REASON....WE SHOULD NOT GIVE UP-
    (Because of all that the Lord...has done:)
    And.....is doing......for us:
    --------------------------------------------------
    An argument that will only work with Christians!
    ====================
    V.15A “For we have not an high priest”
    “which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities;”
    -THE LORD IS A SAVIOR....THAT “CAN” BE TOUCHED-
    (Touched by our heartaches:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    He truly has compassion for us...when we are hurting!
    ====================
    V.15B “but was in all points tempted like as [we are,”
    -ANOTHER PURPOSE.....FOR JESUS COMING TO DIE FOR US-
    (The way He did it:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    By living a regular human existence:
    So that He could experience......life’s troubles!
    ====================
    V.15C “yet] without sin.”
    -ONE THING.....JESUS “NEVER” EXPERIENCED-
    (Sin:)
    Because of His “perfect Holiness”!
    --------------------------------------------------
    God’s experience with sin....is from the other side:
    ------------------------
    In heaven..He see’s it’s destructive results!
    ====================
    V.16A “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace,”
    -HOW ALL THIS.......SHOULD EFFECT OUR PRAYER LIFE-
    (This should give us more boldness:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    As we bring our requests....before the Lord!
    ====================
    V.16B “that we may obtain mercy,”
    -THE MAIN THING.....WE ALL NEED FROM THE LORD-
    (Mercy:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    Because none of us....have arrived yet!
    ====================
    V.16C “and find grace to help in time of need.”
    -THAT SUPERNATURAL STRENGTH........WE NEED IN TIMES OF TROUBLE-
    (So that we don’t give up:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    Note: The Lord will give us “extra grace”:
    To endure whatever we might be faced with!
    ====================
