13 For when God made a promise to Abraham, because He could swear by no one greater, He swore by Himself,
14 saying, “Surely blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply you.” 15 And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise
We may face hard times when God seems far away. Other times, we may look at our lives - our actions, thoughts and motives and wonder if we will really be found worthy enough for God to take us in to His Kingdom when we stand before Him!
The good news is that God's promises are in His hands and He is faithful even we fall short! The blood of Jesus is enough to wash us completely - 100% from our sins, past, present and future!
God made a promise to Abraham. God's Word is enough! But He appeared a second time and SWORE AN OATH to Abraham that He would keep His promise! A double assurance was given to Abraham! How much more can we be assured today under the New Covenant?
That by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, WE might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us.
The "WE" is you and I! We have been given the same assurance that God will welcome us in that day - not because of our own worthiness - but because of the precious blood of Jesus Christ!
19 This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil,
20 where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek
Jesus is our High Priest forever. His Priesthood is unchanging and eternal and can never fail. Though we fall short, His suffering and death on our behalf is more than enough to issue our entrance into His heavenly Kingdom!
We have this blessed hope as an anchor of the soul! Like a ship which may drift a short distance while it is anchored, the anchor will prevent it from drifting away.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ into your heart and given Him control of your life, remember that He is your Anchor! Any earthly anchor may be moved if enough force is applied - BUT JESUS CANNOT BE MOVED!
And if He cannot be moved - and you are attached to Him - you also cannot be moved!
