As a Gentile, this book, Hebrews, has information for me, but is geared especially to the Hebrew. But all scripture is for us to read, and apply where applicable. We are to discard that which does not apply to us today in this dispensation, but we are to understand it. So it is imperative to know just who is being addressed here. Hebrews 1:1 gives us this information. God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, written to God’s own people, the nation of Israel. God had given up on we heathens back then, and while Jesus was on this earth. Jesus plainly tells us He did not come for we dogs. From this starting point we can see what Paul is talking about. There were two gospels during the time of the Apostles. Verse 1 of Hebrews 6 contains the key to understanding. One was replacing the other, for something “out of this world” had happened. Something God had kept to Himself from the beginning, Ephesians 3:9. Verse 1 -”Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God”. See II Corinthians 5:16-19. Paul is saying just listen to me, believe my gospel that Christ gave to me, and we will go on to perfection. Leaving the principles (while Jesus was on earth), then on to perfection, with the “good news” that Christ shed His blood for us, and arose and ascended to His Father, and the Old Covenant of the Law has been “nailed to the Cross”. They can, and have now come through faith, and this is perfection. Through the Spirit, and through Christ Jesus, we can now freely approach God the Father. This was never possible for man to do before. Unheard of and never prophesied. God always knew this, but no one else. In the Spirit through Christ Jesus, we now have access to God. God the Father, God the Word/Son, and God the Holy Spirit. I really cannot even come close to comprehending this. Paul tells them to not try and lay down AGAIN the foundation of Jesus. Why? Because it is impossible for Jesus to start all over; but if it could be done (they become unsaved-God Forbid), repentance would not again be available. In one fell swoop, when we come to Christ Jesus, we find repentance in our belief. All our sins are forgiven; we are baptized, justified, sanctified, and sealed. We never have to repent again, as all our past, present, and future sins have been forgiven. We not only turned to him when we believed, but when we went toward Him the Spirit then turned us, baptizing us into Jesus Christ’s death, and we are dead to sins. If we are dead in Him, He will raise us. We are sealed. That is the reason repentance as been accomplished once and for all. We can be sorry when we sin, if all our sins have been forgiven, why would we keep on asking they be forgiven. Where are they. They cannot be found. We are to Thank Him for what He has done, not put into question if He did or didn’t take all our sins away. If we don’t believe this, are we not continuing to “crucify him afresh”, verse 6 – ”If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame”. Does this mean that these Jews could become unsaved? Of course not, as what they are doing is giving up their freedom to go back under the law, which will not produce any rewards for them as noted in , II Timothy 2:11-13 ”It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him: 12. If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us: 13. If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself”. Paul hasn’t turned now and changed what he tells us in other places. . . ..Can we say the Jew can become unsaved after reading in the very same chapter, verses 17-20. Jewish talk indeed. Even if they fall back under the law, Jesus is still their High Priest, as they want to become carnal again, like the Corinthian church, and do I dare say the churches of today? Look in Ephesians 2:8, or how about II Timothy 1:9, then again in Titus 1:2. This is the Body of Christ, and not marching into the kingdom on the tailcoats of the Jew. We are in Christ Jesus. If we believe we can fall from grace, but not out of grace, we must rightly divide the Word of God. We can run away from home (His light), but where can we go? He’ll bring us back, as He can’t let go of us.
