Jesus is the Same Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow
7 – Remember your leaders who taught you the word of God. Think of all the good that has come from their lives, and follow the example of their faith.
8 – Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
9 – So do not be attracted by strange, new ideas. Your strength comes from God’s grace, not from rules about food, which don’t help those who follow them.
The message of Christ remains the same forever. I need the word “forever” to re-sound in your ears. What Jesus did on the cross, has been done, thousands of years ago, Jesus will not come and undo what he has done. This is because his work has been perfected forever (Hebrews 7:28). So, the message of the cross remains the same forever. We should not begin to add what was never there or subtract what was very much present.
Jesus, God himself, came on earth as man (the incarnation), died for our sins, was buried, and has resurrected for our justification (1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Romans 4:25). That is the gospel. Guess what? This message is the same then (thousands of years ago), now and forever, and, it’s not changing for anyone. No one has a right to find their own personal revelation for something that is as clear as the air. Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever! I stick to this truth and message! Glory to God.
When studying the bible read the presiding verses and the following verses to aide in your study, and get the actual message out. Ideally, the key scripture for this digest is Hebrews 13:8, but in order to aide our understanding, I included read verse 7 and verse 9 to understand what the writer was talking about. When you read them up, you will understand that this mysterious writer was speaking about doctrine as in verse 9, he says:
“Do not be carried away with various and strong doctrines.”
So, this writer was letting us in on a timeless truth. The message of Jesus Christ remains the same, even in 90 years’ from today, when we will still be believers (Glory to God!). Let us not find rhema where there is none. Jesus is the ONLY TRUTH (John 14:6). Preach about Jesus only.
Jesus, teach me to stay with right doctrine and remain humble even when corrected. Glory to God!!!
