Urging missionaries and churches to stand
fast in the Last Days
We will be Looking At Hebrews Chapter 11 and 12 for
for the message today. Chapter 11 is often called The Hebrew Hall of
because it list all those Hebrew believers who practiced faith in
God as their only hope of
eternal life and for their purpose in this earthly life.

weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the
armies of the aliens".
Hebrews Ch. 11: 4-39.
From these several verses we see many lessons the
Lord want's us to learn concerning Salvation and service to him.
(16)- Hebrews 11:35-39-"Women
their dead raised to
life again: and
others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain

AT JESUS THROUGH TESTIMONIES.
Hebrews ch. 11.
(1)- Faith for
Hebrews 11:7- Noah prepared for his and his family's salvation.
What about you; are
you preparing your family to know the Lord? Do you pray for them
and with them? Do you keep them under the sound of the gospel? Are they

(A type of the worldliness). Are you living a separated christ honoring
life? Do you look
different from the rest of the world or are you so much like the world
that they can't tell
the difference between you and themselves?
(3)- Faith for
Hebrews 11:24- Moses refused to be called the son of Pharoh's
Would you give up the riches of a kings castle to serve the Lord? Do
materal goods? Is your position as the CEO of some large company more
than living for the Lord?
(4)- Faith for Service .

What about you; will you surrender your life to serve on a mission
field, far away from

the rapture of the saints).
Are you ready for the rapture? Will the Lord be pleased with your life
when you stand
before him or will you be ashamed and suffer lost rewards?
LOOKING AT JESUS OUR SACRIFICE.
(1)- Jesus is the only means of redemption for mankind.
Hebrews 12:2- "The author and
finisher of ouf faith".
didn't leave anyone out of his plan of redemption.
1 Tim. 2:4- "He would have all
men to be saved and
to come to the knowledge of the truth".
(3)- Jesus blood
paid for the forgiveness of past, present and future sins.
In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of
(4)- Jesus blood satisfied the Heavenly Father.
Innocent blood had to be
shed and sprinkled on the
mercy seat in Heaven before it was settled.
4:34 Jesus saith unto them, "My meat is to do the will of him
sent me, and to finish his work".
shed blood fulfilled prophesy.
The Cross became finished redemption for all mankind- Isaiah
53:5-7- Jesus came as a
lamb to the slaughter.
53:5-"But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised
our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with
his stripes we are healed."
53:6-"All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every
to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all."
53:7-"He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not
mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before
her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth."
blood removed the barrier; It is no longer for the Jews
6:38-"For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but
will of him that sent me."
6:40-"And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one
which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life:
and I will raise him up at the last day."
(5)- Jesus blood
defeated the devil.
The devil was the one who instituted the downfall
mankind in the first place. Thank God Almighty, the devil was defeated
at Calvary! John
16:11- "The prince of this world is judged".
4- LOOKING AT JESUS
(1)- Jesus finished his work of redemption on earth.
Hebrews 12:2- "And is sat down at
the right hand of the
throne of God".
(2)- Jesus is become our High
Hebrews 4:15- " For we have not
an high priest which
cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all
points tempted as we are, yet without sin".
When the accuser comes
to tell Jesus how bad we are, Jesus reminds him that we are God's
children and even our short comings are under the blood! My what a High
priest we have and he is always there for us when we fall to lift us up
and to forgive our sins!
(1)- BE SURE OF YOUR
If you are not
absolutely sure your sins are under the blood of Christ
and that you would go to heaven if you died this moment; you need to
repent of your
sins and ask Jesus to come into your heart to live forever and make you
a child of his and to
write your name in the Lamb's Book of life! If you will ask the Lord to
save you, He promised to do so in Romans 10:13- "For whosoever shall call upon the name
of the Lord shall be saved".
(2)- BE SURE OF YOUR SANCTIFICATION.
If you know that you are saved but you are not living a Sanctified,
Separated life; then you need to lay every sin that is hindering you on
the altar of God's love and determine to walk from this day forward in
newness of life! You made him your Saviour-now you need to make him
Lord of your life. Romans 12:1-2-
"Present your bodies a living sacrifice..."
(3)- BE SURE OF YOUR SERVICE.
Are you in his perfect will? Are you serving him in what ever purpose
he called you for?
