A Christmas special on the Doctrine of Christ and its advanced implications for God to make partakers perfect.

Preliminary Outline of Hebrews

INTRODUCTION: Beginning, Body, and Bottom Line of Hebrews.

Beginning of Hebrews, what is God like: “God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.” (Hebrews 1:1-4)
Body of Hebrews 13 chapters, the Doctrine of Christ includes partakers of His nature: “Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection…” (Hebrews 6:1a)
Bottom Line of Hebrews, that God may make you complete: “Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is well pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.” (Hebrews 13:20,21)
I. The Doctrine of Christ in Hebrews 1, most probable full extent of Paul’s initial synagogue address as once he identified the Christ of the Old Testament and the Son of God with Jesus of Nazareth, they ran him off and tried to kill him.


NOTE1: Paul as obvious author of Hebrews. (see at the end)
1. Starts off with God, then Son. (Hebrews 1:1-3)
“God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high…”

Note: Hebrews 1 is almost all quotes from the Old Testament, so Paul introduces with both the Hebrew history of the “fathers” and the OT Prophets.
2. Then Lord for Jesus. (Hebrews 1:10)
“And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands…”

II. Beginning with Hebrews 2 of combining the Doctrine of Christ with US, principles of the Doctrine of Christ.

1. Heed those things taught by Jesus and the Disciples and witnessed by God.
(Hebrews 2:1)
2. Man and Jesus.
a. Man (Hebrews 2:6).
b. Jesus and getting Man and Jesus together in the Atonement. (Hebrews 2:9)
“But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.”

3. Doctrine and principles joined as One and in the Assembly, church. (Hebrews 2:12-13)
“Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.” (Hebrews 2:12)
a. Quote of Psalm 22:22 in Hebrews 2:12.
b. Quote of Isaiah 8:6,7 in Hebrews 2:13.
4. Doctrine and principles continued to tie together as both the children and Christ become partakers of flesh and blood. (2:14-18)
a. Delivered flesh and blood from bondage because of the fear of death.
b. Christ took on the nature of Man, not the angels which were a little higher.
“Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil…” (2:14)
c. “Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.” (2:17)
d. Temptation is suffering, there again Christ identifies with the children or people. (2:18)

5. With the first mention of the name Christ and with Christ Jesus together. Paul brings the Doctrine of Chirst and the Principles or implications of the Doctrine of Christ firmly together with new names. (3:1-5)
a. The children or people are brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling.
b. Christ Jesus is the Apostle and High Priest of the Christian profession.

6. With the second mention of Christ (doctrine of Christ), we are the house of Christ if we hold firm unto the end. (3:6-13)
NOTE: now he launches into the first listed specific principle of “repentance from dead works”.

7. With this third mention of the word Christ or the Doctrine of Christ the principle of the doctrine of Christ in faith in God is highlighted. (3:14-19)
“For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end…” (3:14)
a. The judgment principle has already been mentioned as God decided and decides that “they shall not enter into His rest.”
b. And the faith in God principle in that it was unbelief that prevented them from eternal rest.

8. The promise of rest that remains for the rest of the people of God is an introduction to the resurrection of the dead. In the synagogue there would be both Pharisees and Saducess, the first believing in a resurrection of the dead and the second not. (4:1-13)

9. With the mention of “Jesus, the Son of God”, necessary in the doctrine of Christ comes a some what veiled but practical introduction to “baptisms”, here it is the baptism into the grace of God to help in time of needs and into the THRONE OF GRACE ITSELF. (4:14-5:4)

NOTE: Paul was still talking in the language of a new Christian, of a lawyer of Israel and the Old Testament law, had not written his other 13 New Testament books, and was still speaking the language of the synagogues where he was raised and trained in the Law. Later when he polished for publication the early synagogue addresses, the flavor and language of the initial addresses was keep. We can therefore appreciate the simpler language.
a. Obey Him.
b. You are not listening!
c. Obey and listen to the first principles of the Doctrine of Christ, get baptized into the strong meat of the word, get skillful in the word of righteousness, grow up, and exercise your senses to discern both good and evil.

II. Summary of what has been happening in the first 5 chapters on both the Doctrine of Christ and the principles of the doctrine of Christ in 6:1,2
“Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. And this will we do, if God permit” (Hebrews 6:1-4)

** Paul wants to pass on to advanced doctrines of perfection, but strains to get off the first principles. so below is parenthetical on first principles.
P1: Partakers of the Holy Spirit is more on the baptisms. (6:4)
P2: Your sense of taste has been baptized in the word of God, and baptized into the powers of the world to come. (6:5)
P3: Repentance and atonement again. (6:6,7)
P4: Judgment (6:8)
P5: Salvation, the complete baptism in the One baptism. (6:9)

III. “Unto Perfection” in the Doctrine and Principles of Christ, Hebrews 6-13.

NOTE: Come now to the second part of Hebrews: (1) the First is the Doctrine and Principles of the Doctrine of Christ in Hebrews 1-5; and the (2) second is advanced doctrines unto perfection of the Doctrines of Christ with principles, Hebrews 6-13.

1. Unto Perfection in Hope of Salvation

a. Unto advanced doctrines of Christ and perfection with the promise of Hope of salvation. (6:15-19)
b. Advances into the Doctrine of Christ about the high priesthood, and the extent of the sure and immutable HOPE. (Christ and Melchesidec and what it means to us.}
c. About Hebrew history on this Melchisedec and Abraham in order to increase awareness of hope of salvation.. (7:1-11)
NOTE: somewhere in here Paul gets so enthused, almost forgetting his outline and completely free flowing under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
d. The priesthood and law is changed.
(1). Law made nothing perfect, bringing in of better hope did. Hope by which we draw near to God. (7:19)

2. Summarizing unto perfection in the doctrine of Christ: (c) seated at the right hand of His Majesty in heaven, the great and only High Priest, minister of THE SANCTUARY–it is the true tabernacle and Jesus is the Minister,and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself pitched this tent, not any man.. (8:1-
a. Advanced doctrine under perfection and with our High Priest with a new minster. (8:6,7)
NOTE: A TRAIN of unto perfection in Christ from (1) the most excellent ministry of Christ, to (2) Him as the mediator of a better covenant, and (3) one which is established on better promises. From most excellent, to a better covenant Mediator, to better promises. You can’t beat that!
b. Mediator of a New covenant.
c. With better promises.
2. Unto the perfection of advanced doctrines and principles of Christ with the New Covenant. (8:9-13)
a. The New Covenant is unlike the Old Covenant which Israel did not keep anyway, so that under that covenant God did not regard them anyway;
b. Here is the covenant that God made with Israel at the beginning of the Last Days–
(1) the new birth of God putting the law in their minds and hearts;
(2) the covenant of God will be Israels God and Israel will in turn be His people;
(3) the priesthood of believers, everyone will know God in Israel from the least to the greatest;
(4). God will be merciful to their unrighteousness;
(5) God will remember their sins no more.
(6). The Old Covenant is made old, decayed, and will vanish away.
3. You need to know a little Hebrew history of the Old Covenant in order to appreciate the New. {Later in Romans Paul will expand God’s enlarged concept of Gentiles as all Israel saved.}. (9:1-9)
4. Unto advaned perfection in the doctrine of Christ moves on to REFORMATION, REDEMPTION, and INHERITANCE and thru the atonement. (9:10-22)
5. Back to the New Covenant and the “blood of the new testament”. (9:23-28)
(a). New tabernacle is heaven.
(b). atonement, once for all and for all time.
(c). Salvation is completed at the Second Coming!
6. Advanced doctrine of Christ unto perfection, THE DOCTRINE OF THE CROSS! (10:1-13)
(a). Unto perfection with faith.
(b). Confidence in drawing near to God because of: (1) true heart in full assurance of faith, (2) hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and (3) bodies washed with pure water.
8. Profession of our faith, ways to hold fast to that profession. (10:24-39)
9. About the Perfection of Faith with Hebrew historical examples– (Hebrews 11)
NOTE: Those people of Hebrew faith examples have not yet in heaven received the full promise of God, nor heavenly of our relatives and friends received it yet that have passed along. Perfection of the promise, alias sanctification or Christlikness, and the new bodies on the new earth is held in reserve for all of us to enjoy together at the second coming of Christ and the new earth. So those of faith in the past are now in heaven in sort of a holding pattern, and we can speculate that they are in training for their new positions on the new earth, God having taken unto Himself those before us to hold critical positions on the new earth.
10. “Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” (Hebrews 12)

11. Practical implementations of unto perfection of faith (Hebrews 13)


NOTE1: Paul as obvious author of Hebrews. Don’t ever pay much attention to historical criticism as they tried to knock everything previously thought in order to magnify their superior knowledge. In doing so, they leaned too heavily on the wisdom of the world and fell under the category of the wisdom of men that God scoffs.

1. The chains and persecutions that his listeners shared written about in Hebrews 10.

2. The obvious style of Paul in all 14 letters that he wrote of showing his own outline, or the wherefores and therefores, and in the summing up, also the long sentences of free flow under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and yet considered the best of Greek, and naturally the lawyer like logic.

3. In chapter 13, the mention of his own son in the faith Timothy and how those of Italy greet them, of course saying that went Paul finished the manuscript for published on which he had worked so many years before and after addresses in Hebrew synagogues.

The Greatest Story with Audio
April 24, 2016
Greatest story ever told.    {Listen while you read!}

Read, Listen, and see illustrations at

Greatest story because it is the only greatest God, the Father of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the Creator of humanity and the Universe.
After the Father and Jesus made the sacrifice by lowering themselves to come to earth; after Jesus lived on earth and performed many marvelous works and died of the cross for our sins; after Jesus Christ ascended back to heaven to take up His place at the right hand of God, then and now “ever living to make intercession for our sins” and preparing to come get us again in great power and glory. That alone is a great story that gets even greater as we consider that the only way to get to God the Father, His power and wisdom and presence, and eternal being, is through the Lord Jesus Christ.
John 14:1-7
Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
Do you not want and need this peace Jesus is talking about that keeps your heart from being troubled all the time; it only comes by believe in the Father and the Son; are you not interested in eternity in the Father’s eternal home on the new earth; can you not imagine the place that Jesus prepares in eternity for every believer, and want to go there at death or when Christ comes again; Jesus according to these teachings of John 14:1-7, is not talking figuratively or foolishly when He tells that the prepared place is just not for imagination, but it is prepared for you to be your eternal home. Jesus said He is coming again, in order that you might be received to be with Him and the Father eternally?
Jesus said, “You know where He went after Ascension back to the Father.”
Jesus said, “You know the way to the Father and eternity.”
Good ole doubting Thomas, with whom we can easily identify, said, “Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
This question by Thomas was designed for all humanity that desire to know where the place is that Jesus went back to the Father, and to know the way that we can get there after death or the Second Coming. The answer of Jesus is the greatest story every told!
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
1. Jesus is the Way.
You see often on TV large church services like that of Adrian Roger’s, and you are aware of the way of comfort and feel good the assemblers are experiencing. THAT IS NOT THE WAY! Jesus best summarized the WAY with the message “to take up the cross and follow Him.” Do you when you watch them on TV, recall the similar comfort and feel goodness, God’s people were experiencing in the Temple at Jerusalem before God brought their destruction. Like today and like a gang of thieves that robbed and then hide in the den of thieves, church members today are coming to church to feel good and then live without a cross of Christ all week. THAT IS NOT THE WAY, and Jesus called while quoting from Jeremiah 7:11, that all such flippant and self-serving assemblers are like a “den of thieves”.
2. Jesus is the Truth.
The gist of the Temple message that Jeremiah delivered daily without heed, but with the scoffing of lack of respect, the daily message from God recorded word for word completely in Jeremiah 7, a message that is summarized by “truth is dead.”
Jeremiah 7:28
“But thou shalt say unto them, This is a nation that obeyeth not the voice of the LORD their God, nor receiveth correction: truth is perished, and is cut off from their mouth.”
Each generation in America, unbelievers and lukewarm believers, create a reality or truth in their own mind and heart that will make them feel good and make others dear to them feel good about a good impression of rightness. That is the way truth is dying.
3. Jesus is Life like God the Father.
God made life and with Him is life. At Creation read carefully Genesis 1 and you will notice that the Trinity was at work, God the Father originated the universe, God the Son mediated Creation, and God the Holy Spirit effected creation by “brooding on the face of the deep.” However almost two thousand years ago, the Father ordained that men for real and eternal life must come through Jesus.
“Jesus said, I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father but by me.”
4. Jesus said, “I am the life” and the only way to real and eternal life with God.
Life, real life and eternal life, is only through Jesus. Jesus was not trying to fake us out or build Himself up when He said, “no man comes to the Father but by me.”

Newer profile for Scottish Corner Research and Photos to a fighting Highlander; however it would seem that they more accurately made contributions as farmers and Presbyterians, also contributing to the Scot and Scot-Irish pioneer spirit that made such a contribution to America. Often settlers would strive to use them as "arrow catchers" outside their own settlements. However, in search of land for a living, they were up to the task. The big rural Ulster scene reminds us of perhaps the main thrust for pioneering with a farm scene, courtesy of Scot in Ulster. Of course even in Ulster they felt pressures against freedom of worship from the Anglicans and Irish Catholics. View all posts by sungrist3in1

The world wants to know what God is really like!  
Well, this single verse from Jesus tells us much 
about God the Father of the Lord Jesus Christ-

“Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in 
heaven, that one of these little ones should 
perish.”  (Matthew 18:14)

This is simple but it is deep.  Like some one said, 
“Simple enough for a child to understand, but deep 
enough for an elephant to bath in.”  This Matthew 
18:1-18 passage seems to be about little children, 
and so it is-

“And whoso shall receive one such little child in my 
name receiveth me.  But whoso shall offend one of 
these little ones which believe in me, it were 
better for him that a millstone were hanged about 
his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of 
the sea.  Woe unto the world because of offences! 
for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to 
that man by whom the offence cometh!”  (Matthew 

Jesus was a realists, knowing the way it is in the 
world and that many offenses would be committed 
against children, yet He says, this does not lessen 
the punishment that is going to be received in 
eternity even if the offender is one of the Roman 
Vatican Pope's holy minions!

"The man Pope Francis should meet in Washington"    In spite of recent propaganda claims by the Roman Catholic Church denonination for moral leadership and likewise the false claims that they championed the compiling of the Bible, history must note at least two other facts than that of the dark ages for which they are responsible:  (1) Go back to the start of Christianity when Christ ascended to the right hand of God the Father, giving the legitimate offices of the church of the firstborn written in heaven, the list does not include a pope or a priest (Eph 4:10,11); and (2) if there were any threads of continuity between Christianity and the catholic denomination, it was broken in I Timothy 4:1-3 when they commanded no  marriage for priests and the eating of good meat, but also developed "doctrines of devils" that get between Christ and the believer, and a collective "seared conscience".  
1 Timothy 4
"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth."  (I Timothy 4:1-3)
What happens to any organization or nation when truth dies?
