2 Corinthians 13:9 (a) Paul had a great desire for the blessing of the saints, and especially in their ability to serve GOD with valor, confound the enemy with intelligence, and depend upon GOD firmly and strongly for all their needs.

Hebrews 6:1 (a) This passage refers to the growth of the Christian in his knowledge of the things of GOD. The believer is not to remain as a baby in the family of GOD, satisfied just with the elementary truths, but is to grow in his knowledge of GOD's Word, GOD's ways, and GOD's truths.

Hebrews 7:11 (a) This evidently refers to being completely saved and cleansed by the salvation which is found alone in CHRIST JESUS. Under the Old Testament program, the priests could never rest. There was no chair in the tabernacle nor the temple. The priests could never rest from their labors. The sinner was always sinning, and was coming frequently to the priests with his sacrifice to obtain forgiveness. CHRIST brought in something better. He offered Himself as a sacrifice to GOD for all the sins, past, present and future. It is not necessary therefore to continue to offer His sacrifice, as is done in the offering of the Mass daily in the Catholic religion. The Lord JESUS put away sin for every generation by His own wonderful sacrifice. There is no need of a repetition as in the Old Testament days.
