HEBREWS CHAPTER 4

1 Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. 2 For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it. 3 For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world. 4 For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works. 5 And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest. 6 Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief: 7 again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, Today, after so long a time; as it is said, Today if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts. 8 For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day. 9 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. 10 For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. 11 Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief. 12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do. Jesus Christ is our high priest 14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. 15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.


Lesson No. 647 "Come Boldly to the Throne of Grace"


Book of Hebrews, Chapter 4 12/03/2022


1) Paul picks up in Chapter 4 where he ended in Chapter 3- you must believe. He further explains that to enter God's rest you must hear the Word and mix it with what? (Hint- verse 2)


2) In verses 3 through 5 Paul talks about entering into God's 'rest'. What does he mean? (Hint- Jews believed when they die they rested in 'Abraham's bosom'.)


3) Verses 6 through 11 describe the day of salvation in terms of resting in God's finished works (verse 4), hearing God's voice (verse 7), and not hardening your heart (verse 7). What is our 'rest' in all this? What is different between what Paul is saying to the Jews from what Christ is saying to us in these letters?


4) Paul then goes on to describe the Word of God as this amazing sword in verse 12; how does that help in salvation? It cuts us up, right?


5) Paul has laid the foundation of his argument, then he turns his attention to Jesus. What does he call Jesus in verse 14, and why might this be important to the Jews?


6) Paul gives two good reasons for following Jesus; one in verse 14, and one in verse 15. What are they? Are these good reasons for believing that Jesus is 'the way the truth and the light'?


7) Verse 15 might tell us something about our prayer life. We are only to pray to God, not angels or Mary or any person. But what is 'special' or unique to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit regarding our prayer life? Do you focus parts of your prayers to the members of the 'God Head'? Why not?


8) Verse 16 is real gem! What does the first part of the verse mean regarding our position as a member of a royal family, and where we can go spiritually, and how might this affect our prayer life?


9) So why do we come to the throne of grace in prayer? (Hint- see the remainder of verse 16) What is grace? What is mercy? Finally, why do we need grace in time need?
