Can Christians lose their right to the blood of Jesus? If we willfully continue in sin after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left (Hebrews 10:26-31). Check the verses below. When we ignore scripture does it go away?
How is it that when we Christians are warned in accordance with the Word of God we frown, but if anyone comes up with a cute saying that doesn’t even match the Word we give the amen?
Did you know that accepting praise from one another can hinder your belief (John 5:43-44)? The whole world is designed around the “like” button. If I only spoke what you liked, I too would start preaching for that “like” button. Look around. How many today preach for the amen?
Is that to say that when we ignore scripture it just goes away? Yes it can go away (Matthew 13:18-22), but double-check the Words of Jesus in John 12:47-48. The very Word you reject will condemn you on the last day. That’s why it is written, “We ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip, or drift away” (Hebrews 2:1). Check it!
Listen to this parable and see if you can hear it.
29 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you build the tombs of the prophets and adorn the monuments of the righteous, 30 and say, ‘If we had lived in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.’ 31 “Therefore you are witnesses against yourselves that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets. 32 Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers’ guilt. NKJV
To be born again is not just a statement, but we have a new Father (God, Romans 8:15, Matthew 23:9), and a new family (those who do the will of the Father, Mark 3:31-34). When the Word of God becomes your life then Father’s Day becomes something different. Wisdom is proven by her actions.
Therefore, if God is your Father then you will cry out Father (Romans 8:15). If you died with Christ to the basic principles of this world, then that would show also (Colossians 2:20-23, Galatians 4:9-11). Take the time to check the verses I have mentioned so far and you will see reason for alarm today.
When you know the scriptures, then you will know just how important the righteousness that comes by faith is. The righteousness that comes by faith requires us to speak in line with the faith (Romans 10:6-8). The Christian life isn’t just get saved and then “do the best you can,” but it is to “live by faith” from start to finish (Romans 1:17). For Christians, everything is “through faith.”
According to Matthew 23:29-32 above, the Pharisees and scribes were decorating the graves of the righteous, but at the same time they were proclaiming that the people who killed them were their fathers. They were obviously not born again (1 Peter 1:22-25), or transformed by the renewing of their minds (Romans 12:1-2), and so it is today.
Many of us attend church every week; we wouldn’t miss it. However, we speak directly against what is written in the very Bible we carry. Our words show that we are “not filled” with the Spirit, or allowing the Spirit to lead us. The Spirit is the Word (John 6:63). How can one claim to be Spirit led and yet speak in direct opposition of that same Spirit?
The verses above should reveal to you that we cannot speak against the faith and be in the faith at the same time (1 Timothy 6:20-21, below). The Pharisees believed that they would have reacted differently than their fathers concerning someone sent by God, but that obviously wasn’t the case. The same is true with us.
Our words show who we are. What is mostly in the heart comes out of the mouth (Matthew 12:34). If we haven’t renewed our minds with what is written, then we can’t possibly speak in line with what is written. On the other hand, if we are filled with all kinds of cute sayings that are in opposition of the truth, then that is what we will speak, and in doing so we will fall away from the faith. A tree has to be “made good” before its fruit will be good (Matthew 12:33-37).
1 Timothy 6:20-21
20 O Timothy! Guard what was committed to your trust, avoiding the profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge 21 by professing it some have strayed concerning the faith. NKJV
Now, can Christians lose their right to the blood of Jesus? What does Hebrews 10:26-31 say below? Let your words match what it says from now on and in so doing, remain in the faith. Repent for speaking against it.
God sends those who speak His Words (John 3:34, Jeremiah 23:22). Many hide behind miracles, prophecy, and man-made positions, but if you are sent to speak, your words will show it. I’m Alan Ballou; a servant. I speak in accordance with what is written and not to please men. For as long as I live, I will teach and warn my brothers in accordance with the Word of the Lord written in Colossians 3:16. As it is written, point these things out to the brethren (1 Timothy 4:6). Those who hate correction will die (Proverbs 15:10). Brethren, remain in the faith and be blessed.
26 For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, 27 but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries. 28 Anyone who has rejected Moses’ law dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 29 Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace? 30 For we know Him who said, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. And again, “The Lord will judge His people.” 31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. NKJV
26 For if we go on deliberately and willingly sinning after once acquiring the knowledge of the Truth, there is no longer any sacrifice left to atone for [our] sins [no further offering to which to look forward].
27 [There is nothing left for us then] but a kind of awful and fearful prospect and expectation of divine judgment and the fury of burning wrath and indignation which will consume those who put themselves in opposition [to God]. [Isa 26:11.]
28 Any person who has violated and [thus] rejected and set at naught the Law of Moses is put to death without pity or mercy on the evidence of two or three witnesses. [Deut 17:2-6.]
29 How much worse (sterner and heavier) punishment do you suppose he will be judged to deserve who has spurned and [thus] trampled underfoot the Son of God, and who has considered the covenant blood by which he was consecrated common and unhallowed, thus profaning it and insulting and outraging the [Holy] Spirit [Who imparts] grace (the unmerited favor and blessing of God)? [Ex 24:8.]
30 For we know Him Who said, Vengeance is Mine [retribution and the meting out of full justice rest with Me]; I will repay [I will exact the compensation], says the Lord. And again, The Lord will judge and determine and solve and settle the cause and the cases of His people. [Deut 32:35,36.]
31 It is a fearful (formidable and terrible) thing to incur the divine penalties and be cast into the hands of the living God! AMPIFIED BIBLE
