2:1 Therefore we must pay closer attention to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away. 2:2 For if the message spoken through angels1 proved to be so firm that every violation2 or disobedience received its just penalty, 2:3 how will we escape if we neglect such a great salvation? It was first communicated through the Lord and was confirmed to us by those who heard him, 2:4 while God confirmed their witness3 with signs and wonders and various miracles and gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed4 according to his will.
Wow, if the Angels had heard it an spoke it, and the one’s that saw Jesus heard it… how hard is it for us to hear and listen to His word? Think about the downline and how it came to us… First spoken in the heavens… leading to the Evil one being cast out from the Kingdom… then practiced and learned throughout the old testament… miracle after miracle, war after war, and then Christ arrives… a walking, talking, exact replication of the HOLY GOD.. a perfect image of our Lord, the disciples and a few others hear Him, and see HIS work… then the cross, death, resurrection… to come to us? 2017? Is it not completely and totally amazing that the message reached us… in it’s fullness, and solid and still breathing as the Word of God, sharper than any sword, inspired and delivered still today be the HOLY SPIRIT.
Words that come to mind are relentless, unchanging, forever, trustworthy, King, Conquerer…. God confirmed everything for us… Jesus proved it.. the Holy Spirit delivers and empowers… what else do you need to keep it ALIVE in you?
