Hebrews 10

The doctrinal section of the epistle closes with two remarkable statements:

(1) “And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.” (Heb. 10:17) How utterly wonderful and glorious are these words. The infinitely holy God who knows all about our sins and iniquities declares to His saints, “I will remember your sins and iniquities no more.” Believers have been forgiven and pardoned; their sin and debt to God has been cancelled.

(2) Now says the writer, where remission of these is, “There is no more offering for sin.” The only offering for sin that will ever be made has been made on the cross.

Hebrews 9:26,

“Once in the consummation of the ages hath He been manifested to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself.”

Hebrews 9:28,

“Once offered to bear the sins of many.”

Hebrews 10:10,

“The offering of the body of Jesus once for all.”

Hebrews 10:12,

“One sacrifice for sins forever.”

Hebrews 10:14,

“By one offering He hath perfected forever them that are sanctified.”

The writer would conclude this doctrinal section and have us enter our practical obligations with the words, “No longer any offering for sins,” ringing in our hearts and minds.

Heb. 10:19 “The Holiest”

“Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest.”
