Hebrews 2:1-18 and Hebrews 3:1-19
A Warning Against Drifting Away and Christ Is Greater Than Moses

  • Spoken through angels is a way of describing the Mosaic Law which was received by direction of angels. Acts 7:53
  • Angels mediated the Law references: Deuteronomy 33:2; Acts 7:53; Galatians 3:19
  • A greater word, brought by a greater Person, having greater promises, will bring a greater condemnation if neglected.
  • Neglect = They made light of the invitation to the marriage supper. Matthew 22:5
  • Neglect means to have the opportunity but to ignore or disregard it.
  • Jesus was human because God had put the world in subjection to man not angels. Psalm 8:4-6
  • We do not see all the things put under Him but we see Jesus. He fulfilled the promise. Revelation 1:6; 5:10 & Matthew 25:21
  • Adam introduced  death into the world by sinning.
  • The promise of dominion is only fulfilled through humility of Jesus. Romans 5:12
  • The ultimate illustration of the fact that real love, real giving, involves sacrifice. As David said, "I will not sacrifice to the Lord my God burnt offerings that cost me nothing." 2 Samuel 24:24
  • Jesus made us perfect through His suffering.

  • God is everything.
  • Have confidence in Christ Jesus.
  • Evil heart is an unbelieving heart.
  • In the season of Grace, we are to believe and obey!
  • Lack of trust in God always prevents us from receiving His best.

1 Samuel 17:32-37
Subject: "Facing Your Giants"

How did David stand against Goliath when no others could or would?

We have problem giants in our lives.
  1. Health
  2. Government
  3. Money
  4. Illness
  5. Drugs Addictions
  6. Running from the Law
  7. Martial Problems
  8. Work Related Problems
  9. Etc.
  • We feel ill-equipped
  • God said, "Touch not my anointed, and do my prophets no harm." 1 Chronicles 16:22
  • Victory is already ours even in the valley of the shadow of death.
  • v35 - I went after it, struck it and rescued the sheep from its mouth. (Fear not, for God is with us. He strengthens us in our time of need.)
  • David's brothers tried to discourage him.
  • People close to you discourage you but stand firm in the Word.
  • I can do all things who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
  • Spiritually, we sometimes don't fight the good fight of faith.
  • If God be for you, who can ever be against us? So do not fear, for I am with you, do not be dismayed, for I am your God.  Romans 8:31
  • Remembrance = remember what God has done for us.
  • The devil is like a roaring lion, seeking to devour us. 1 Peter 5:8
  • David recalled how God delivered him from the lion who roared loudly.
  • A bear is grumpy, hungry and complaining. Nothing seams to please it. Some Christians are like that. They attack our dreams and hopes. But David's testimony was that God delivered him each time because he believed in God.
  • Every test makes us stronger.
How did David stand against Goliath when no one else would or could?
  1. Remembered the Lord is the days of his youth.
  2. Represented God who is the living God.
  3. Replied or responded instead of hiding or running away.
