Dear Anonymous

Pastor Ron's response to a comment left on the January 24, 2011 post:  Hebrews…

Thanks for your opinion Anonymous, and although we disagree with your view on the human authorship of the epistle to the Hebrews, we do appreciate you reading our blog.

What you must remember is that the writer of Hebrews includes himself in the doctrine presented in the book, and our Apostle Paul was not a part of that doctrinal program!

Hebrews 4:11
Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

Paul already has rest in Christ as a member of the Body of Christ!

Hebrews 4:14
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

Paul did not have to hold fast, he is eternally secure as of the moment he trusted Christ!

Hebrews 10:26-27
For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.

This does not pertain to our Apostle Paul, nor anyone else saved in the dispensation of grace! We all sin willfully at times against our Lord, yet we cannot ever lose our salvation!

Romans 6:23
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Paul was/is a member of the present Mystery dispensation of grace, and not a part of the Prophesied earthly kingdom program. So although many believe that Paul is the human author, he is not! And, what's most important is that God wrote it!

Hebrews 1:1
God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,

Remember what Paul says...he was given the mystery of Christ! You must rightly divide the word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15).

Romans 11:13
For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office:

Ephesians 3:1-4
For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles,  If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward: How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote aforein few words, Whereby , when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ).

Paul was sent by our Lord Jesus Christ to make known the Mystery, not to focus on Prophecy/kingdom program.

Colossians 1:24-26; 4:3-4
 Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body's sake, which is the church: Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God; Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:

Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds: That I may make it [the Mystery of Christ] manifest , as I ought to speak .

2 Thessalonians 3:17
The salutation of Paul with mine own hand, which is the token in every epistle: so I write.

You must beware of those attributing letters to Paul that he did not write...

2 Thessalonians 2:1-2a
Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled , neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as [but not] from us,

Again, Anonymous, thanks for reading our blog.

Grace and Peace,
Pastor Ron Knight
