The Book of Hebrews Part 49 & 50
The Scriptures reveal to us the Son of God, the Messiah. While all the pages of our Bible converge to make known to man his Almighty Creator, there is one Book which stands unique, where the Messiah’s very identity, His character, even His nature are so clearly stated in The Book of Hebrews.
The book of Proverbs asked What is His name, and what is His Son’s name, If you know? The Book of Hebrews answers both these questions.
Who is Jesus? A Man, a Teacher, a Philosopher, God Himself? From the very beginning, the Messiah’s origins, His nature, His works were debated. Even before His coming, ideas abounded everywhere as to who He will be; yet all these points are firmly stated in the Scriptures and especially in Hebrews.
Welcome to Messianic Viewpoint with Messianic leader, Jacques Isaac Gabizon and this study in the Book of Hebrews. Be blessed as you listen in and shalom.
Chapter 5 of Numbers made open and public internal sin and now, having dealt with that, God continues to stress holiness, offering each person, man or woman the opportunity to be set apart, to become, if you will, a Nazirite and to be dedicated to the service of God. Though not from the Levitical priesthood, here was the opportunity to demonstrate a holy living which would set them apart from the others. In that respect Lord, we want to be pious and separate ourselves from the world; yes to live in it but not to be part of it. Yes, the hair had to left long and yes, you couldn’t eat even the peel of a grape and yes, you couldn’t touch a corpse. We too must be different from the world. Instead of our hair, let’s let our love grow long and strong, let us rejoice in the vineyard of God’s harvest and let us not touch sin because it is the seed of death. Let us now live in the freedom of serving and dedicating our lives to You. We pray you will be blessed as you listen to the New Year's message in the Book of Numbers (our current study series at Beth Ariel Congregation) with Messianic leader, Jacques Isaac Gabizon, shalom.
