Hebrews 10:26-39 Faith In Jesus Changes The Way We Live

Series: Jesus Is The Better HopeSpeaker: Paul Mermilliod Hebrews 10:26-39 (ESV)26 For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, 27 but a fearful expectation of judgment, and a fury of fire that will consume the adversaries. 28 Anyone who has set aside the law of Moses dies without mercy on the evidence of two or three witnesses. 29 How much worse punishment, do you think, will…

Hebrews 7:11-19 Perfection Cannot Be Attained Through The Law

Series: Jesus Is The Better High PriestSpeaker: Paul Mermilliod Hebrews 7:11-1911 Now if perfection had been attainable through the Levitical priesthood (for under it the people received the law), what further need would there have been for another priest to arise after the order of Melchizedek, rather than one named after the order of Aaron? 12 For when there is a change in the priesthood, there is necessarily a change in the law as well. 13 For the one of…

Hebrews 2:1-18 Jesus Is The Propitiation For Our Sin

Hebrews 2:1-181 Therefore we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away from it. 2 For since the message declared by angels proved to be reliable, and every transgression or disobedience received a just retribution, 3 how shall we escape if we neglect such a great salvation? It was declared at first by the Lord, and it was attested to us by those who heard, 4 while God also bore witness by signs and…

2 Peter 2:17-22 Take Care! There Will Be False Teachers Among You Part 2

October 9, 2022 Message by Paul Mermilliod 2 Peter 2:17-22 [17] These are waterless springs and mists driven by a storm. For them the gloom of utter darkness has been reserved. [18] For, speaking loud boasts of folly, they entice by sensual passions of the flesh those who are barely escaping from those who live in error. [19] They promise them freedom, but they themselves are slaves of corruption. For whatever overcomes a person, to that he is enslaved. [20]…
