An Anchor of the Soul #10

Thursday, October 22, 2020

“Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec” (Hebrews 6:17-20 KJV).

What can we say about this “anchor of the soul?”

“Remember the word unto thy servant, upon which thou hast caused me to hope. This is my comfort in my affliction: for thy word hath quickened me…. They that fear thee will be glad when they see me; because I have hoped in thy word. My soul fainteth for thy salvation: but I hope in thy word…. Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word…. Uphold me according unto thy word, that I may live: and let me not be ashamed of my hope…. I prevented the dawning of the morning, and cried: I hoped in thy word (Psalm 119:49,50,74,81,114,116,147).

“I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope…. Let Israel hope in the LORD: for with the LORD there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption” (Psalm 130:5,7). “Let Israel hope in the LORD from henceforth and for ever” (Psalm 131:3). “Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God:…” (Psalm 146:5).

As our Apostle Paul wrote, “For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope…. Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost (Romans 15:4,13). Indeed, no matter the dispensation, the “anchor of the soul” is faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His Word revealed for that particular time! 🙂

Grace and peace! What a privilege to be an ambassador for the risen Christ here on WordPress! I am a Pauline dispensationalist Christian saved by grace through faith in Christ Jesus plus nothing! My goal is to "have all men saved, and come to the knowledge of the truth" (1 Timothy 2:3,4). I seek to preach Jesus Christ crucified for our sins, buried, and raised again for our justification as the only way to salvation. Also, I seek to edify and perfect the saints using dispensational Bible study and the Authorized Version King James Bible!
