Not only the salvation can be lost, but if after becoming Christians we slacken and cease to increase talents, we shall be punished more than non-Christians who do not know God's will, or at least like we do through His Son's direct teaching (cf. Luke 12:47: "And that servant, who knew his lord’s will and prepared not himself, neither did according to ...
There are three questions here so I will separate them.
QUESTION #1 - Can salvation be lost?
Here are some examples of salvation being lost:
The “wilderness generation” of Israelites that God called out of Egypt perished in the desert because, despite being called, turned their backs on God and refused to trust in God by believing the majority spy report.
Boy Jesus at the temple in Luke 2:
49“Why were you searching for me?” he asked. “Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?” 50But they did not understand what he was saying to them.
51Then he went down to Nazareth with them and was obedient to them. But his mother treasured all these things in her heart. 52And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and ...
Did God give an oath to Isaac as alluded in Psalms 105:8-10?
THE ANSWER IS "YES"
Genesis 26:1-3 (NASB)
Isaac Settles in Gerar
26 Now there was a famine in the land, besides the previous famine
that had occurred in the days of Abraham. So Isaac went to Gerar, to
Abimelech king of the Philistines. 2 And the Lord appeared to him and
said, “Do not go ...
The origin of this is Psalms 8:6 (8:5 in translations):
ותחסרהו מעט, מאלוהים (vateḥasrehu mé'at me-Elohim)
— i.e., You made him a little lower than God – but that was considered too heretical a wording to translate verbatim.
This is not an answer to the question as stated, but an interpretation of the NT verse: “I will put my laws in their hearts, and I will write them on their minds” (Heb 10:16).
These words do not appear to reference any specific list of commandments or prescribe a new set of laws. Jesus himself said that he did not come to abolish the law or the prophets:
When one talks about covenant, we need to distinguish between the Law of the covenant and the covenant per se. The Law specifies the instructions pertaining to the covenant. The covenant per se is the deal between two parties. If the Israelites follow the Law, they will be blessed. If not, they will be cursed. That's the deal; that's the covenantal legal ...
At the outset, I would like to flag up two biblical principles that form my starting point for answering this important question.
(1) Romans 3:20 - “By the deeds of the law shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.” Whatever answers folks come up with, there surely can be no disputing that striving to keep either all, ...
The answer to this question is actually in the text quoted by the OP, in Heb 8:6-10, particularly V8:
But God found fault with the people and said: “The days are coming,
declares the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the people of
Israel and with the people of Judah.
Thus, according to Heb 8:7, 8, 9, the New Covenant was created, not because the ...
The word translated as "forever" can be interpreted "long time, period, duration, farthest reaches of time, age".
There does not exist a word in Hebrew that unambiguously means "forever".
Moreover the meaning of this word changes over time in Hebrew as we start seeing plural forms, suggesting that olam shifted to mean "...
God made several covenants. If you are back referencing a covenant which replaced a previous one, you need to ensure you are referencing the correct one.
God made a covenant with Abraham - for a nation. Abraham represented the Nation. He was the ‘father’ of the nation. It was this covenant that is everlasting. This is the covenant referenced in 1 Chronicles ...
What laws will God put in Christians' hearts and write in their minds?
When discussing the new covenant, at Hebrews 10:15, 16, the apostle quotes the prophecy of Jeremiah according to the Greek Septuagint Version and writes :
Hebrews 10:15-16 NET
15 And the Holy Spirit also witnesses to us, for after saying,[a] 16
“This is the covenant that I will ...
1. Why does God command all his angels to worship his Son?
and having been found in appearance as a man, he humbled Himself, having become obedient to death—even death of a cross Phil 2:8-11
Therefore God also highly exalted him, and granted to him the name above every name
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in the heavens and on earth and ...
The verb προσκυνέω is to worship by falling face down in front of a recognizably superior being. See Thayer and BDAG. There are three significant things about the use of this verb in the NT:
Such acts of devotion are reserved for God alone, eg, Matt 4:10, Luke 4:8, see also John 4:20-24. These NT commands to worship God alone are direct references to Ex ...
During his revelation John twice attempts to worship an angel; each time they correct him:
9 And the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” And he said to me, “These are the true words of God.” 10 Then I fell down at his feet to worship him, but he said to me, “You must not do that! I am a ...
Here is what I believe sums up the answer to this question...
"12Here is the [g]patience of the saints; here[h] are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus."
Which commandments are the commandments of God? A quick google search provides that answer...google tells me these are the ones found in Exodus 20:1-17
This answer may not fit comfortably with those with a doctrinal philosophical foundation. Neither will it specify the precise ‘Laws’ that are ‘written’ on your heart, you wanted specifically listed - because you can’t. And that’s because that is not what Hebrews 10:16 means. You are seeking an interpretation that can only be supported using eisegesis.
Jesus replaced Moses and Elijah.
Luke 9:28 About eight days after Jesus said this, he took Peter, John and James with him and went up onto a mountain to pray. 29As he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became as bright as a flash of lightning. 30Two men, Moses and Elijah, appeared in glorious splendor, talking with Jesus.
There is short and a long answer to this question.
Some wit has attempted to list the laws in the NT that are specifically commanded on Christ's followers - all 1050 laws. I have no idea whether this is completely accurate but severs to demonstrate that there are plenty of laws for Christians to follow. See -
A bit before in Hebrews 8:10 (NASB) we read
For this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel
After those days, declares the Lord:
I will put My laws into their minds,
And write them on their hearts.
And I will be their God,
And they shall be My people.
In both of the passages (Heb. 8:10 and Heb. 10:15-16) Jeremiah 31:33-34 (NASB) is ...
If one reads the whole chapter the context makes the meaning perfectly clear!
16“THIS IS THE COVENANT WHICH I WILL MAKE WITH THEM
AFTER THOSE DAYS, DECLARES THE LORD:
I WILL PUT MY LAWS UPON THEIR HEARTS,
AND WRITE THEM ON THEIR MIND,”
He then says,
17“AND THEIR SINS AND THEIR LAWLESS DEEDS
I WILL NO LONGER REMEMBER.” 18 Now where there is forgiveness of ...
I know that according to greek, penetrates means "occurrence"
Verb - Present Participle Middle or Passive - Nominative Masculine Singular
Strong's Greek 1338: To pass through (to), come through (to), pierce. From dia and the base of hikanos; to reach through, i.e. Penetrate.
There is nothing tricky about the ...
This whole passage is an allusion to the work of God in our life through the metaphors of physical things.
A double edged sword is a fiercesome weapon and knows no limits to its penetrative abilities.
God is able to see so deep within us as to discern the innermost forces that drive and sway us. His word - or logos - the presence and expression of God, is ...
In https://biblehub.com/genesis/27-39.htm, 12 versions translate it as "away from" fatness of the land and 7 versions say Esau would dwell in the fatness of the land.
