Sinning with a High Hand!

When we as Christians decide to make a choice in a situation and we know it is wrong and then proceed while saying to ourselves. “OH!  I live under Grace and I know God will forgive me!”  When this happens, we have just blown it in the eyes of God!  Why?  Let me explain: When we go ahead and choose to deliberately act in order to do what we want to do – that is rebellion!  What God see is this – you are taking your fist and raising your hand toward Heaven and shaking your fist in His face!  It is that serious!   

For if we deliberately continue to sin after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but only the terrifying prospect of Judgment, of raging fire that will consume the enemies.”

Those who deliberately continue to sin (v. 26) are doing what the Torah (Bible) calls sinning “with a high hand,” and for such sins the Levitical system of sacrifices prescribed in the Torah does not atone (see Hebrews 2:10–11).

Think how much worse it will be for those who highhandedly ignore Jesus’ atoning sacrificial death (v. 29)!

This is the point of this passage.”  Hebrews 2:10-29 (CJB)
