Bible Text:  Hebrews 9:24-28

** Compare these with the appearance of Haley’s Comet, every 77 Years.

  1. 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?
  2. 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
  3. 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!
