B9- Heb.6:1-12[KJV+], “1Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, 2Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. 3And this will we do, if God permit.
“4For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, 5and have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, 6if they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
“7For the earth which drinks in the rain that comes often upon it, and brings forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receives blessing from God: 8But that which bears thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned.
“9But, beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that accompany salvation, though we thus speak. 10For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labor of love, which you have shown toward his name, in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister. 11And we desire that every one of you do show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end: 12That you be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.”
B9- Heb.6:1-12[EV], “1Therefore, after reestablishing your understanding of the fundamental precepts1 of the doctrine of Christ, you must bear the responsibility2 of using that understanding to move steadily into spiritual/mental maturity and mastery in the advanced precepts3 of Christ. Through accuracy and continuously advancing understanding, purpose, and vision, we will not have to back up and repeatedly lay the doctrinal foundation in those who should already have these things established in their spirit and mind. You should not still be struggling with moving beyond the concept of having to perform Old Covenant type works to earn Salvation, or with accepting the precept of Salvation being achieved only through true Faith toward God4. 2You must authenticate in your understanding, and begin to live in, the precept that God requires multiple dimensions of personal cleansing1; and foundationally establish the value and practice of the transfer of spiritual anointing2 through the laying on of hands. You must also foundationally establish the doctrine that there is a specific time when all people will be raised from the dead3, at which time God will determine4 and initiate our personal eternal status in [or out of] his Kingdom. 3If God permits us time, we will certainly progress past teaching these fundamental doctrines of God’s Kingdom1, and advance you through the subsequent spiritual/mental growth process toward complete maturity in Christ.
“4It is essential that you establish these foundational doctrines of Christ in your spirit1 and mind, before you press into the more advanced precepts of spiritual operations2. God established the character quality criteria for authentic3 spiritual advancement in his Kingdom; because he knows it is impossible to persuade to repentance those who were once enlightened4 in the authentic advanced precepts of Christ5 and then reject6 those precepts. These are they who experience character failure after truly understanding and experiencing the glory and power of God’s generous gift of the Holy Spirit7. These are they who have consciously lived in partnership with the Holy Spirit, 5and experienced1 life as it is meant to be lived through the authentic2, Living Word3 of God and the dynamic powers4 that will be permanently instilled in all those who are truly Christ’s. This will take place in the next dispensation of God’s development of the ‘Man5’ he is now in the process of completing in us. 6If, before the progression of their spiritual prowess to the advanced ‘Christ’ level1, they have not previously developed the Godlike Character qualities that would keep them from falling away from Christ2, it would be impossible, after their fall, to persuade them again unto repentance3. They who fall from this greater level of spirituality4 abdicate their own Salvation, because they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh5, and bring public ridicule upon the doctrine of Christ6.S
“7The person who uses their natural spiritual/mental attributes1 to ‘drink’ in the anointing of the Holy Spirit2, which generously falls upon all Humanity3 and is sent to birth and nurture Spiritual and Earthly provision sufficient for all them by whom it is ‘farmed’, has and will receive great and eternal blessing from God. 8However, the person who unleashes abuse, trauma, and terror on Humanity through misuse of their natural spiritual/mental attributes1, and/or misuse the additional anointing provided by the Holy Spirit after attaining the ‘Christ level’, is rejected2 and is within a deathwatch of being judged abominable and reaping their full life’s recompense3: suffering the fiery4 wrath of God.
“9Although I speak of the consequence hanging over the life of those who misapply and waste their spiritual anointing by living contrary to God’s instruction; we have confidence in you, whom we Love as God Loves, and expect you to live lives attentive to Christ’s gospel, and receive the full blessings that accompany Christ’s Salvation. 10Unlike many humans, God is always righteous to remember your joyful, and dutiful, works of true Love1, which you have exhibited in alert respect for His Character and Authority. He remembers your past ministry to the saints2, and sees your current minister to them. 11We desire that every one of you exhibit steadfastness of confident expectation unto the end1; 12so you will not become slothful of heart1 or hesitant to act2 in obedience to Christ, but rather, be active followers of Christ, and examples of the type people who through Faith and patience3 inherit all the blessings God has promised to those who endure.”S
Hebrews, 6:1(1) cornerstone, foundational instructions; 6:1(2) The author of this letter [~Paul] would help them, but it was their responsibility to understand and utilize these precepts in their own lives.; 6:1(3) instructions, aspects; 6:1(4) which will, in accordance with the principles of Faith, include the works of Faith: the spiritual, mental, and physical behaviors that align with Christ’s precepts; 6:2(1) spirit, mind, and body “baptisms” – which comes to pass [a process] as we enter into true Faith relationship with God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; 6:2(2) anointing and activation of the superconscious [the operation of our personal spirit that connects with the Holy Spirit] in others; 6-2(3) if they have physically died when the time arrives; 6:2(4) judge; 6:3(1) when there is the correctness in our understanding and belief that releases the powers of God’s operating system [as they are conducted by and through the Holy Spirit] to more greatly manifest in our life; 6:4(1) character; 6:4(2) operations of the superconscious [and the subconscious] – We [personally and corporately] can move prematurely [unprepared] into operating in advanced spiritual precepts; however, it is not God, but our own lustful desires, that lead you to do so.; 6:4(3) God-authorized; 6:4(4) spirit level authentic understanding [which includes mental level understanding]; 6:4(5) have been too quickly and ignorantly taught how to operate in advanced spiritual [superconscious] precepts, without first being firmly grounded in the glorious value and precepts of Godly Character; 6:4(6) truly reject – at the spiritual level, not just out of emotional frustration [which, if left unattended, can advance to spiritual rejection]; 6:4(7) We are accountable for the wisdom, knowledge, and power we receive from the Holy Spirit. If we choose, after receiving these gifts from the Holy Spirit in all their purity and forthrightness, to turn against the Christ-righteous use of these gifts, it will not be possible for us to repent. We have ‘fallen’ from Christ, and are eternally lost; so it is essential to build spiritual [superconscious] maturity of Character before pressing into the advanced aspects of Christianity that promise such amazing and wonderful things.; 6:5(1) “tasted” – Our sense of taste is a temporary sensation. Our present day experience in living with the Holy Spirit is only a ‘taste’ of what that experience will be like when we enter into the fullness and permanence of God’s promise.; 6:5(2) Christ intrinsic – directly connected; 6:5(3) ‘rhema’; 6:5(4) ‘dunamis’; 6:5(5) the mature aspect of the model of Humanity God initiated in Adam [‘man’] in the Garden of Eden; 6:6(1) The ‘Christ level’ of our interaction with the Holy Spirit is my personally chosen designation for the top level of spiritual advancement for humans [which also has its own process of maturation – which Jesus successfully completed, and is therefore, and forever singularly, The Christ]. This is in distinction from the ‘Prophet’ [intermediate] level of relationship with the Holy Spirit [those earnestly and continually in the process of maturing to the ‘Christ’ level (currently a small part of the body of Christ)], which is also in distinction from the ‘law’ [initial and lowest] level of relationship with the Holy Spirit (currently the vast, vast majority of the body of Christ). Law is good, but only when applied in the pursuit of Godly Character.; 6:6(2) and using their inherent, and newfound abilities in Christ, to pursue the lustful pleasures and challenges of the carnal realm; 6:6(3) Their repentance is impossible because the ‘Prophet’ level of the Holy Spirit, personified in John the Baptist [and Moses], who originally brought them [the children of Israel] to repentance [out of Egypt] and empowered the advancement of their understanding to the ‘Christ’ spiritual level [the Promised Land], is taken out of the way [as God took John (Moses) out of the way before Jesus (Joshua) began his public ministry].; 6:6(4) fall from a height greater than the vast, vast majority of Christians ever attain: the ‘Christ’ level of the Holy Spirit [highest level of Christianity for humans], but is now attainable by all Christians; 6:6(5) they kill Christ in themselves [after his one and only resurrection], and thereby crucify [kill] their own Salvation; 6:6(6) The gospel of Christ’s redemption and power for us to live a Holy life on Earth. No personal harm is done to Jesus or the Holy Spirit, but public perception of the advantage of believing in Christ is greatly diminished.; 6:6(S) Lev.20:6-7; 1stPeter 1:15-16; 2ndTim.4:10a; 6:7(1) the attributes ‘breathed’ into Humanity in the ‘Garden of Eden’, that actually made us humans instead of animals.; 6:7(2) currently made available to us by God the Father, through Christ Jesus; 6:7(3) Most people have a cultural ‘umbrella’ raised over their life, which repels or camouflages the influence of the Holy Spirit; 6:8(1) the spiritual/mental gifting that made them a member of the human race in the first place; 6:8(2) deemed worthless, offscouring, reprobate; 6:8(3) life-harvest; 6:8(4) consuming, totally destroying; 6:10(1) ‘agape’ – the munificent benevolence practiced by God himself; 6:10(2) the ‘Holy Ones’: those who have died before us, who were earnestly on their way to overcoming every personal attribute that worked contrary to them achieving Character maturity in Christ [believers on a determinately fixed course to a truly righteous future]; 6:11(1) The end of your life or the end of this Dispensation of Grace, whichever comes first; 6:12(1) spiritual; 6:12(2) mental/physical; 6:12(3) endurance, fortitude, stamina; 6:12(S) Ps.4:2-4, 12:1-8, 32:5-6; 1stThess.1:3; 2ndThess.1:4-6; Titus 2:2; Heb.11:35; James 1:2-4; Rev.13:9-10
