We all know about the OSAS movement, it is nothing new.
To me, I personally believe it is quite dangerous, extremely risky and completely unscriptural.
But apart from that the scripture states:
"For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,"
The AMP states: "there is no longer any sacrifice left to atone for [our] sins [no further offering to which to look forward]."
Of course, those who believe in Eternal Security have no answer to this verse and since there is not such thing as eternal Security.
It is not in the Bible. But there is such a thing as Eternal Life, and his name is Jesus.
But this is not the reason for the topic, If you go on it says...
[There is nothing left for us then] but a kind of awful and fearful prospect and expectation of divine judgment
and the fury of burning wrath and indignation which will consume those who put themselves in opposition [to God]
Now comes the scary part:
Just think how much worse the punishment will be for those who have trampled on the Son of God, and have treated(DISGRACED) the blood of the covenant, which made us holy, as if it were common and unholy, and have insulted and disdained the Holy Spirit who brings God’s mercy to us.
The scriptures also warns us about the former people who did such thing: "But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them."
Now that's scary, and the scriptures have warned us to stand fast lest we fall in manner of unbelief and be ungrafted(Romans 11) from the tree of Life, Christ Jesus!
Here the writer of Hebrew is warning Christians again of this dangerous thing,
DO NOT Waver From Your Faith in Christ. He warned us in verse 23.
"Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering", He said.
Right before this verse, he called them "brethren" in verse 19. Genuine believers of Christ!
What he had to say to them began in 10:19 and continues throughout the remainder of the chapter is clearly an exhortation to
These brethren—fellow Christians—were exhorted to “hold fast
[their] confession” (10:23). What does he mean by “the confession of our
hope”? For the author of Hebrews, “our hope” is the very blood of Christ
that has been presented in the heavenly tabernacle on our behalf.
This explains why he could write in Heb 6:19, “This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast and one which enters
within the veil.” They are to hold fast this confession he said!
This was the second warning, the first warning came in Heb 3:26 when he warned them to hold fast their confidence and the boast of their hope firm until the end.
so in Heb 10:26-31, he is warning the true believers AGAIN who needed to hold fast the confession of their hope in the blood of Christ.
Then he presented the alternative if they did not, he writes in Heb 10:26, “For if we willfully sin” this is the same believers he exhorts in Heb 10:19 and following.
(He also uses “we,” to include himself within the scope of the warning.)
And Immediately after issuing the warning passage of 10:26-31,
he turns their attention to the former days, “when after being enlightened,
you endured a great conflict of sufferings.” At some point in their past,
they had suffered greatly for their faith. The author very specifically says
that this took place after they had been “enlightened,” after the time
of their conversion.
2Pe 2:1: "even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction"
This is serious And we see how dangerous it is to loose this confession and many have. “For some are already turned aside after Satan.“ (1Tim 5:14)
