What Is The Meaning Of Hebrews 6

First, he teaches them how Christianity is far superior to Judaism, and secondly, he warns them what might happen if they revert to Judaism. Sprinkled throughout this letter are five warning passages. Five times in this letter, the author warns his readers what could happen to them if they reject Christianity and return to their old way of living as Jews. So severe in fact, that many Bible teachers and pastors use these warnings to teach that if a person rejects Christianity, then that person was either never saved in the first place, or has lost their salvation. The history of the Hebrew people, the Israelites, is a colorful account full of miracles and mistakes.
Once God had pronounced their judgment, it was impossible for them to repent and go back. The judgment suggested by those who hold this view varies some. Oberholtzer says, “Theologically it is clear that present unfaithfulness will result in loss of reward at the judgment seat of Christ. The result for the believer is not loss of eternal salvation but a forfeiting of inheritance-rest, reward, and position in the coming millennial kingdom.”[34.

They should just hold fast to their confidence, as Paul says. Then God’s word will result in joy and peace, as it says in Isaiah. And so that is the whole point of the book of Hebrews, Paul is exhorting the brethren to not fall for the trap of offering sacrifices for salvation.
All the Hebrew brethren would certainly know about the promise made to Abraham. For hundreds of years that promise had been one of the great hopes of the Israelites, but it contained much more than they had expected. Over the centuries, they had received enlightenment about the total meaning of that promise, which contained the seeds of many elements which would come to a climax in Jesus, the long awaited messiah.

If we didn’t deserve it when first saved, we will not lose it because we don’t deserve it after becoming saved. Therefore these verses must have a different meaning. In this illustration the rain falls to the ground and plants start to grow.
There is no stopping-place in the Christian life. We go from one stage to the next as we grow in our knowledge and faith in Christ. However, like any congregation there are those who attend who do not have a saving relationship with Christ. Some scholars see this as a hypothetical case to encourage the true believers to not drift back into Judaism because of the superiority of Christ’s atoning sacrifice and the new covenant.
2 You don’t need further instruction about baptisms, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment. 3 And so, God willing, we will move forward to further understanding. 7 Land that drinks in the rain often falling on it and that produces a crop useful to those for whom it is farmed receives the blessing of God.

These people make it to heaven by the skin of their teeth. The believer who is adokimos, disqualified before Christ in heaven does not lose their salvation, only their reward. The issue is not salvation, but approval at the Judgment Seat of Christ. Some translations says disapproved, or disqualified. The Greek word is adokimos, which is the negative of dokimos. Dokimos always has the sense of being tested, accepted or approved, most often in reference to the judgment Christians will face at the Judgment Seat of Christ.
Further, it makes no sense in that verse to understand repentance in that context; how would an inability to turn from sin be analogous to re crucifying Christ, the ultimate atonement for sin? How would that understanding of repentance be renewed? It seems to me the renewal is in the turning to Jesus instead of the law.

The author of Hebrews writes against this theology. He explains to these persecuted Christian Jews that the old law does not save any longer. Now that Christ has come, impossible to repent Salvation is found through him. There is no amount of sin that Christ’s death on the cross cannot cover. There is no end to the forgiving and loving nature of our God.
Only The God knows the heart, which is why scripture says we are to leave the judging up to him. The judgment seat of Jesus, the Christ, will occur at the end of this age. At that time, those who have persevered in faith, love, and spirit will be rewarded with entrance into the kingdom of God in a place of blessing to share the glories of their king, Jesus. Many people today find it difficult to let people know of their faith.

So while we’ve found some context and some answers, we’ve also raised a few more questions. Mostly, what are these oaths and promises God has made to us which are referenced in the passage? I mean, if we’re going to anchor our hope to them we need to know what they are, right? Let’s see if we can expand our search out a little into the whole book of Hebrews to answer that.

There is much more than can be said about Hebrews 6. However, if you do some additional studies about hope, the Judgment Seat of Christ, and follow up passages later in Hebrews, you will be blessed by the depth of God’s love and provision for us.
