The lesson on May 22, 2022 was part 7 of the “Running the Race” study.  We forged ahead in Hebrews covering up to chapter 3.  At first we looked at the comparison of Angels to that of Jesus Christ as referenced in Heb. 1:4 “So much better”; Heb. 1:5 “Which of the angels …?”; Heb. 1:6 “Let …worship him”; Heb. 1:7 “angels spirits” Heb. 1:13 “To which … sit on my right hand”; Heb. 2 2:2,5,7,9,16; Heb. 12:22 “innumerable company of angels”; 1 Cor. 6:3 “we shall judge angels”. Contrast with Ephesians 1:20,21 which is our calling – “seated far above principality and power”. We learn that the emphasis is on works for rewards vs. works for salvation!  Many pastors take this out of context and teach conditional salvation which is wrong.  It is so important to understand and use right division to properly handle the scriptures. The scripture reading was from Hebrews 11:9-16 KJV

“9 By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: 10 For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God. 11 Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised. 12 Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable. 13 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. 14 For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. 15 And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. 16 But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.”
