The Joy in Responsibility

(An In-Depth Study of Hebrews)


In the Hands of an Angry God

Hebrews 10:26-31 


Our text is not the most popular in our Christian culture. We love the Grace and Mercy of our God (as we should) but some find the Wrath and Anger of our God repugnant.

However, Scripture utilizes both aspects of God as motivators:

Blessings / Glory Promised (10:14)

Wrath / Darkness Promised (2:3, 3:11-12, 6:4-6)

God’s Wrath (vs 26-27)

Judgment – Courtroom (Legal)

Fury of Fire – Anger (Emotional)

Consumes adversaries – Physical

God’s Punishment (vs 28-29)

Greater than death

Break the Law – put to death

Trample the Son of God – punishment greater than death

God’s Vengeance (vs30-31)

Terrifying thing

I WILL repay

When is God wrathful?

Vs 26 – When there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins.

Two states of being:

  1. Sacrifice for sins
  2. Terrifying judgment

For whom is there no longer a sacrifice for sins?

  1. Those who are willful in their sin.
  2. Those who are adversaries of God.
    • Profane the Blood
    • Outrage the Spirit of Grace

From where did these people come?

They possessed the knowledge of Truth

The people of God (the visible Church)

The sanctified


The best definition of the love of God is… that God made escape from the wrath of God by the sacrifice of the Son of God for sin.

This is the main reason for joy in the Christian life.
