Hebrews 6:17-18 "So when God desired to show more convincingly to the heirs of the promise the unchangeable character of his purpose, he guaranteed it with an oath, so that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us."ESV

Because it is impossible for God to lie, we can know for certain of our hope (anticipation) that we will be with God forever in Heaven because of our relationship with Jesus. Because it is impossible for God to lie then every promise He has given us in His word is ours as His children. But, no relationship no Heaven and not being a child of God means none of the promises except one. The wages of sin is death, the second death.

Hebrews 6"19-20 "We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain, where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek."ESV

That Jesus has gone into the Holy of Holy on our behave and offered His blood as an offering for our sins, One time forever. Holy Holy Holy is the Lord God almighty who was, who is, who is to come. That is your anchor, that is the knot in the end of your rope and that is the hand of Jesus holding on to you.

Hebrews 7:18-19 "For on the one hand, a former commandment is set aside because of its weakness and uselessness (for the law made nothing perfect); but on the other hand, a better hope is introduced, through which we draw near to God."ESV

Okay here we go, the law a part from Jesus is absolute condemnation. Thus the law apart from grace is condemnation.John 1:14 "And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth."ESV The truth is the law that tells us we are all sinners and condemned. But Jesus came and fulfilled the law and by His blood brought grace that covered our sins and our condemnation. We can only draw near to God by placing our hope. our faith, our absolute trust in Jesus.

Bottom line is without Jesus there is no Hope, but through Him there is. Nobody but Jesus

Hebrews 10:23 "Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful."ESV

Faithful is a word not seen very much in the world around us. Husbands and wives, friends even family fails at this at times. Thus when we read this verse it is easy to brush it aside and say "I don't buy it". You know I don't blame you, even the church has felled at this. But you see there is one huge difference here. He who promised is not us. It is impossible for Him to fail because He is without sin. 

You can hold on to the promise He made that He would never leave or forsake you, NEVER. Why, because Jesus is forever faithful. hold on to that truth today.

Hebrews 11:1-2 "Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the people of old received their commendation."ESV

Faith and Hope go hand in hand. You can't have one without the other. Our Hope (expectation and anticipation) comes from the faith we have in the person Of Jesus. Jesus is verily God thus the people of old, those before Jesus' birth, receive their commendation, their things hoped for, their relationship with God the same way we do, by faith. Their faith in God was also in Jesus as they are one and you can't get to the Father except by the Son. Because we place our faith in Jesus we have the assurance of the Heaven we are anticipating one day. It is by grace you are saved through faith. Faith in Jesus brings the things we hope for.

Hebrews 11:3 "By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible."ESV

Are you still trying to prove God created? Well that's what the world is doing only in a negative way. You know why, because they can't disprove faith. You see at some level you have to just believe and place your faith in what God said that He spoke and the world was. You know why, because God didn't creat from something, He created from nothing thus their is nothing to prove His creation. Let that sink in for a while.

1 Peter 1:3 "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,"ESV 

God has caused us to be born again. We were alive in the Garden then we sined and died. But God caused us to be born again, made us new throught the blood of His Son Jesus who died on the cross then rose from the tomb and is alive even today. The only works here is that of God the Father through His Son Jesus. We serve a liveing hope who is the living Son of God Jesus and that's where our hope comes from.
