Bible Text: Hebrews 9:24-28
** Compare these with the appearance of Haley’s Comet, every 77 Years.
- Christ’s Appearance in the Past – vs. 26b Greek word means = to make manifest
“He was manifested to take away our sins,” I Jn. 3:5, once, by the sacrifice of
Himself./ Heb. 2:17, I Tim. 1:15, Acts 3:19, with Rom 3:10, 6:23, 10:13
Note the as–so connection vs. 27 & 28a
?? Have YOU repented & been converted?
- Christ’s Appearance in the Present – vs. 24 Greek word means = to inform
(God about us like a court defense attorney, NOW) Heb. 7:25, 4:14, I Jn. 2:1,2
(day & night)
?? Does this encourage You? Have you thanked Him? R.U. a praying Person?
Our duty – I Thess. 5:17, Ps. 55:22
- Christ’s Appearance in the Future – vs. 28b Greek word means = to show oneself visibly
John 14:3, I Thess. 4:16,17, Acts 1:10,11
Clarification – to all, not a few ‘watchers’
Apart from dealing with sin
When ???/ Haley’s comet @ 2063
O.T. parallel = High priest’s appearing with Christ’s 3 Appearing!!!!
?? Are YOU watching for Him to come?
?? Are YOU prepared for His coming?
How to be prepared = trust, obey, serve, pray, witness, confess & forsake sin,
with eternity’s values in view
SUM-UP thot – Not only did Christ die for us, He is also interceding for us now, and will
someday (perhaps today) come for believers!
