I. Introduction

A. Hebrews 2:1-4

2:1 Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things

which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.

2:2 For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every

transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of

reward;

2:3 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the

first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us

by them that heard him;

B. The First Century Jewish Christians

1. The two religions

a) Judaism

(1) Backed by the Government

b) Christianity

(1) Made up of converted Jews from Judaism and Gentiles

2. Gave up long held Judaism traditions.

3. They were harassed and persecuted.

4. It didn’t seem that the promises of God were ever going to be kept.

(1) The promise of Israel being restored as a nation.

(2) The promise of Christ Jesus returning.

5. They began to return to their old ways.

6. God brought them from the Darkness to the Marvelous Light, yet, due to their compliancy in the way and word of God, they started slipping into darkness.

7. We too, at times become complacent in the way and word of God as we await the promises of God and find ourselves slipping into darkness.

(1) at times we find ourselves forgetting or disregarding the way and word of God. When we do this we find that we let the characteristics of our salvation slip into darkness. We let our:

Our Christian respect slip

Deliverance slip

Redemption slip

Honesty slip

Holiness slip

Our power in Christ slip

Our shinning light as a child of God Fade into darkness.

(2) Though we well know the consequences of disobediences we sometimes can’t resist satisfying the flesh.

Matthew 26:41 Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak."

There is great danger in fulfilling the cravings of the flesh, for to satisfy the flesh is to kill the spirit of God within.

The writer of Hebrews wrote to warn and encourage the Jewish Christians to hold on to their faith. The same writings in the word of God warns and encourage us today, to hold on to our faith.

Isaiah 55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

(3) If you have been praying for:

Deliverance, Just Hold on.

Miracle, Just hold on.

Lies and Rumors

Matthew 5:11-12 "Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Healing

Jeremiah 30:17 For I will restore health to you And heal you of your wounds,’ says the LORD,

Finances Just Hold on.

Child

Acts 16:31 So they said, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household."

Better Way
