17 Sanctify [make them holy, purify, consecrate] them through your truth. Your word is truth.
|Hebrews 10:26-29 |
26 For if we sin wilfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remains no more sacrifice for sins,
27 But only a certain fearful looking for judgment and fiery indignation, which will devour the adversaries of God.
28 Whoever despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses.4
29 How much more severe a punishment, do you suppose, will be thought worthy for one who has trodden under foot the Son of God, and has counted the blood of the covenant with which he was sanctified an unholy thing, and has acted with spite [contempt] to the Spirit of grace?5 [The false church has made the blood of Jesus an excuse for evil; therefore they have made his blood an unholy thing; and so they trample on the son of God and show contempt for grace. From the Word of the Lord within: "Remember, every person who sins denies Him as Lord and Master. For half of Christianity the blood will be disastrous. They would have no laws. The new law became unrighteousness. The covenant of the Lord is a breakage of the people." Those of you who think the blood of Jesus excuses your past, present, and future sins; you have broken the covenant of the Lord, you have made his blood evil and unholy, and you have shown contempt for the Spirit of grace.]
