Welcome to the Kerwin Baptist Church broadcast today. Our desire is for the word of God spread throughout so that all may know join is now for a portion of one of our services here at Kerwin Baptist Church located in Kernersville, North Carolina. Hebrews chapter or this morning… Read these verses and jump right into a look at verse 12 for the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Neither is there any creature that is not manifested his sight, but all things are naked and opened under the eyes of him with whom we have to do. Seeing then that we have a great high priest that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the son of God, let us hold fast our profession.

For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities but was in all points tempted like as we are yet without sin. Let me remind you that's an unbelievable statement right to think that in every area and there might be areas in my life that I've never been tempted in that some of you have some of you have areas in your life that you been tempted in. Maybe I haven't, whatever the case might be, but here's what's interesting Jesus was tempted in every point that any of us have ever been tempted yet without sin and noticed this last verse, verse 16. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need for things will look at this passage grew quickly and let me remind you that in the Old Testament, we had the law of God in the New Testament we have the word of God. Why is that after Jesus came in the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God and Jesus is the word of God. This is literally alive were going to talk about that and so we gotta get right back to the basics. So what is it that we do have number one we have the word of God. Let's begin there. In our little mini journey today. Lord we love you. Thanks for all that you've done. Lord, in the middle of maybe what we don't have or can't do. Maybe be reminded of what we do have and what we can do in Lord. We love you. We thank for all that you've done. Thank you for keeping us together even when we can't be together in Jesus name we pray.

Amen the word of God.

Now in Hebrews. We literally and I believe Paul wrote, we don't know that for sure. But the author of Hebrews takes us from chapter 1 and there is this constant comparison to the law and literally to Christ and and how this is what happened and this is what was needed and yet he is our high priest, and an annual goes all for the book of Hebrews. We all understand all that doctrine so it in chapter 4.

Here he begins with that.

But in verse 12 he establishes okay this is what we have now look at verse 12 for the word of God. So the first thing we can look at today is the word of God that were knocking us get to it for screen purposes, but I want to let you know right now. The four things were to talk about briefly the word of God the eyes of God, the son of God and the throne of God.

This passage gives all four things and and and to me this really helped me.

Hope it helps you first look in and just quick review look at the word of God for the word of God number one.

He says it is quick. That means alive so the word of God is not dead. It's a lot. It's not a book. It's a person is not a book. It's a person is alive but it's not just binding in paper.

It's it's got Holy Spirit power from on high for the word of God is quick and powerful.

That means this that it is that it is mighty.

It means that God's word can do what you can't, God's word can do it. I can't listen with everything we have found in these past weeks that when we are limited as far as what we can do the word of God takes over. We are reminded that the word of God can do this with or without us. But the word of God is not just alive. It is powerful. Notice thoroughly and I'm doing this brief because this review it sharp.

That means the word of God can cut through things that you and I can it can get to places that we cannot get to in the Bible literally says is that sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit that I have met people that if I came to them and I just tried to talk sense into them and I just tried to give, especially young people, and I try to give advice and only the look at you like that they couldn't give a flip what you have to say to them right now know, look at me like that. Y'all know exact what I'm talking about and you know people you met like that you comes I was only give you advice me say this, what you doing and I've seen this done this and they act exactly like you and I acted when we were teenagers. But I have watched the word of God, get into places that I couldn't go. I watched the verse given that might not of penetrated them at that point, but I watched it get to them later, may I say I am a walking living example of a mom that gave the word of God that I didn't receive it well at first, but it just turned on me and I would keep thinking not really of what she said but of a verse that she gave and I encourage you moms and dads give versus notes and cards. Whatever the do with your young people and when you're sitting right you know give principles from God's word because that's what sticks. Notice this, it's discerning the word of God is quick, and powerful, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Notice that discerning which means this discerning of our mind and is discerning of our heart is discerning of the thoughts and intents of the heart. So the word of God discerns what I'm thinking.

It discerns what I'm feeling even though I can't discern that in myself or anybody here want to agree with me that oftentimes we have know what week we can't trust our own opinion of ourselves. I'll look at myself and all think I am doing great in this area and then I talked to my wife and I find out I'm not doing so great in this area. I might hate me. Marriage is going great so far. My wife happy. She's fulfilled. She just couldn't imagine a better life.

The jazz right now and then you find out. As I got been you been lonely lately haven't have it's been a long time haven't noticed me have it did haven't said this have whatever you do. A lot of times you and I see ourselves through very covered islands is but the word of God discerns not just what were thinking, but what were feeling the word of God that was review notice. Secondly, here. Look at verse 13. He says neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight, but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do now. I will admit to you in this entire passage of this verse is what grabbed me and I said this is what I went to preach on the Lord lead in that and I developed other things around it, but this phrase that all think are opened naked naked and opened for the eyes of the Lord. Notice the second thing right there in verse 13. The eyes of him, the eyes of the Lord so you seen the word of God. But second I want you to see the eyes of God.

May I say this that you can't hide anything from God all things are manifest. Everything is naked, opened before God.

He sees everything. Just think about that. What is it mean the eyes of God. Preach what you see as one knows the first word uses the word manifest this says is that literally there is no creature that means you mean anybody there is no creature that is not manifest in his sight. This word manifest means to shine a light on it means to illuminate it means to expose it means this, that in the eyes of God, not of us have been able to hide anything you see the word of God leads us to the eyes of God. What you mean preacher the word of God teaches me and explains to me that God can see everything I would know that without the word of God. You see the word of God is quick, and powerful, sharper than any two-edged sword, why is that because the word of God is God is alive, which means whatever the word of God exposes in my life that means God sees that. So the word of God leads me to the eyes of God. And here's what the Bible says about all things are manifest everything God has shined a light on all of us a God knows where your heart is right now or he knows where your heart isn't right now.

Wives, like talking to your husband's with the TVs on his in the recliner wives you can eat. You can say amen right there all things are manifest. You know you can tell usually his heart is not in what I'm saying right now. I know a sports being on some of you women have got a lot more talk time probably have achieved. Not a lot a lot of Sunday afternoons with sports not being on it means this that God knows it's literally God's word shines a light on us and God sees everything it means this it means manifest means to display to display God puts our lives on display. He sees it all notice.

Secondly he says all things are naked and opened why did he say it this way. What are these words even if you go to the Greek what it why he doesn't always just repeat himself for no reason. Even though two words sound like you're saying the same thing. There's always a little bit of difference there this word naked.

It literally means to x-ray it means to dissect. It means to be able to look through covering. It's the same ideal how God saw Adam in the garden of Eden.

The Bible says that Adam was naked before God. It means that before man hid himself before man sinned and before Adam began to hide in the trees and all of a sudden had a conscience and realize there was sin and had to get covering in an greenery and leaves to cover himself.

God sees us like he saw Adam before that ever transpired is like literally sin in our life has covered our eyes on things and and and and sin has basically covered us and hidden us from people they don't know the real lesson and they don't know everything in our heart and mind, but God sees us like he saw Adam in the garden before sin ever happened totally naked. God sees right through all the façade we put on he sees through the act sees through the fake PCs through the show. Everything is on display. This word naked means to dissect its to display and then to dissect gets right down like an x-ray can look through the flesh and gets right to where the issues are.

That's with the eyes of God does. God sees you today he sees me that scary anybody else noticed there thing here. He says neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight, but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do this word opened it means unguarded and I was surprised about this, I thought, well, my life is an open book, know what it means it's talking about literally in war terms how an army was left unguarded. How a wall would fall, or how a barricade would be broken and now a person is completely vulnerable.

Their weak spot is open. There's nothing guarding it like going into battle without armor.

It means left with no defenses.

It means that literally with the eyes of God. You and I are left with no defenses. We've got no arguments. We can go to guy well.I know I did this but but listen, here's really I had this it and this person did this to me in this, and none in the listen when it comes to the eyes of God. He sees us. There is no defense. Now, it means this that literally God has to have dominion. It means that we are at is mercy God can do anything he wants with us.

Do you realize that I listen just a reminder, these past weeks. This reminds us we are not is in control.

We think will God can disrupt an entire world like that. If he wishes you and I are unguarded before God we got our guards up in our defenses up with people and relationships and everything else but the eyes of God literally manifest. It illuminates and then it dissect to get past all the coverings and then literally get you to the point you got nothing left to guard you got no defenses you're completely open and vulnerable before God. And normally that's where God has to get as where he could start doing something in our lives is like a doctor can't fix anything until he knows what's going on. That's what God's word. That's what God's eyes, do past all the stuff that you and I can't see we can't get to.

We can't get beyond that God's word pierces to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, we have the word of God we have the eyes of God like one of this is really that encouraging or not.

Preacher oh yes it is. This is what ought to be encouraging God sees past everything that you have set up to hide from people and he still loves you still died for you. What you notice the third thing here like in verse 14. Seeing then all right because the word of God. Does this in my life and because the eyes of God sees this in my life. Notice verse 14 seeing then that we have a great high priest that is passed into the heavens, Jesus here we go, the son of God the Word of God the eyes of him, the eyes of God, and now we see the son of God, let us hold fast our profession. What is at me like I'm getting excited.

I know you're not but I had been using a lot bins up there and we'll run and you know try to get their yelping bends back there know he's the one we save money on this air conditioning unit but it does take a person writing it get this the word of God opens my life. The eyes of God exposes who I am. Are y'all with me so far this morning and that leaves me in a bad position because the word of God shows me my sin.

The eyes of God exposes my heart and I've got no nothing to I'm lost. What can I do then if on this now comes the son of God.

You see, there is just the word of God and the eyes of God. I would be left with no but now comes the son of God.

When I get excited about this. That's why verse 14.

Assist seeing then that we have noticed, the son of God. First, we see him as a priest we see him as priest says we have a great high. Now what you notice two things.

Number one want you to see that is high. Jesus, our priest. He is high.

What is this word mean it means chief priest. That's what this term high priest mean it means chief ratio. That means there is no one above him. So although the word of God shows how low I am in the eyes of God should sees how sinful my heart and mind and life is there is nobody above Jesus.

So I now because of the word of God in the eyes of God.

I see that I have need of a high priest.

I cannot get to God. I cannot enter into the holy of holies I have no access to God because the word of God has exposed the sin in my life in the eyes of God sees me for what I am and I'm a sinner got no but the son of God is my crazy decomposition in my stead and there is no one above him is high priest cannot tell you secondly he's a great high priest. This word great.

Guess what this Greek word is May costs. It's where we use our term mega large we use that term mega for something big. It means this there is nobody higher than him and is nobody bigger the word of God shows me what sin is. The eyes of God shows me how big my sin is. But the son of God is bigger than my sin, he is my mega chief priest and if he is in my stead and he pays my penalty and he dies for me and he saves me. There's nobody above him back and stop it and is nobody bigger than him back and stop him. So, do you understand now why the word of God in the eyes of God, show me my need of the son of I have a great high priest. We see him as priest notice. Secondly, we CMS pass since we have a great high priest who has passed into the heavens.

It means this that this son of God that has become my chief priest my great high priest is now past into the heavens.

You say okay. Did you hear me, he is passed into the heavens. Okay, preacher, did you hear me know what that means he didn't stay here.

That means he rose again you see a great high priest that dies for your sins but stays in the ground doesn't do anything for you, but because he passed into the heavens. That means he rose from the dead. He is now past into the heavens. What else is that mean for me it means that if he's now there when he was my high priest here that means he's my high priest there. That means he's alive. He survived, he rose again which gives me hope, because if he defeated death, and he's passed to the heavens. That means I can defeat death and I'm going to heaven. It also means he's doing something for me up there.

What you do always prepare me a place cannot say what else he's doing is right there at the right hand of the father intercessory intercession for us. Listen because he's passed. He's by the father because he's my high priest. He's intercepting for me. I don't think you can get it at eight whatever in the morning. Listen to this. We see him as priest CMS pass notice thoroughly.

We see him as the object of our profession because of this, seeing that we have this not hold fast to your profession. That means this. You gotta remember, people are not the object of your profession. You see the word of God exposes people the word of God exposes you to remember. People are not the object of our profession because if we were the mamas will stop it now. It reminds me that I am not the object of my profession. Your profession does not exist because of your performance. You gotta remember that we got a hold fast our profession because Jesus our high priest, the son of God, is the object of our profession.

That means that circumstances should not change my profession. That means my failure should not change my profession when I mess up when I backslide when I get in a full that doesn't change Jesus.

When I quit going to God's house. That doesn't change Jesus when circumstances change. My profession is not based on circumstances. It's not based on people it's not based on myself. We have to hold fast to our profession, which is the son of God. Everybody got that so far, but notice this last thing about the son of God.

We see him as personal we CMS priest we CMS pass.

We same as the object of our profession.

But notice this.

Fourthly, we CMS personal euros 15 for we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities but was in all points tempted like as we are yet without sin. Personal it means this that he knows what you're going what you're feeling, he was touched with that same feeling what you're being tempted with or even the temptation that you have fallen to he was tempted with that. He's been there. He understands now. He did it without sin. But he remembers that we are is dust. The Bible says he is touched with the feeling of our infirmities.

He's not just my high priest. He's not just priest. He's personal. He feels what you feel. While which brings me last to the throne of God were almost done now to know if you can see how the Scripture has come alive to me. You may come alive to you yet but I've been chewing on for a few days, but look at what you get this. It all starts with the word of God. You know the creation even started with the word of God at all starts with the word of God and the word of God lets me allows me to understand what the eyes of God can do.

I can't hide from God. Just like the word of God exposes my sin to me the eyes of God exposes me to God and that left me with no hope, and that brought me to the son of God.

Now because of the son of God being my great high priest. What does this mean to me now what the word of God in the eyes of God showed me I did not have access to when the son of God save me now I can approach where I could not go before and that's the throne of God. So the word of God led me to the eyes of God, which led me to the son of God, the son of God raised me right back to the throne. I couldn't get there before.

This Bible shows me why I couldn't get there. The eyes of God, show me that he sees who I am. I can't find it from him. I had no hope I couldn't get to the throw.

So Jesus came to now because of that he takes me right back to the place that I couldn't go. That's why he says here in verse 16. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need to listen to me quickly and I'm done. Listen to this. Notice three things. First, it's a throne of grace. It's a throne of grace.

Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of what church means when I go to his throne.

Now look at me before the son of God. If I got to his throne. It would have only brought judgment but now that the son of God believed to put my faith and trust in Jesus, I now find grace. Grace will always be greater in my sin. It's a throne of grace, just that phrase should melt us as Christians that the throne of God shows grace to us and notice. Secondly, it's a throne of mercy.

Let us therefore come boldly into the phone, of grace, that we might obtain what mercy so that I don't just find grace at the throne of God. I find mercy and grace is obviously God giving me what I do not deserve. And that's access to the throne itself, but now that I get to the throne. Mercy is God does not put on me. The punishment that I deserved the throne of grace, throne of mercy. Look at me with this tells me so far as why would I not want to go to that throne and you you and I as God's children go days without going and approaching the throne. It's a wonderful place.
