Dont Fear the Reaper

What are we distracting ourselves from?

Hebrews 2:14-15

14-15Since the children are made of flesh and blood, its logical that the Savior took on flesh and blood in order to rescue them by his death. By embracing death, taking it into himself, he destroyed the Devils hold on death and freed all who cower through life, scared to death of death.

Are you afraid of death (dying)?

Fear of the UnknownFear of the loss of all we have and all that our lives stand for.

Fear of Judgment after Death

Hebrews 2:14-15

14-15Since the children are made of flesh and blood, its logical that the Savior took on flesh and blood in order to rescue them by his death. By embracing death, taking it into himself, he destroyed the Devils hold on death and freed all who cower through life, scared to death of death.

So Much God by the Ascension Quartet, speaks about the duality of Jesus being 100% man and 100% God:

He was so much man that he slept in a boat; Yet he was so much God that the wind ceased when he spoke. He was so much man that he wept when Lazarus died; Yet he was so much God that Lazarus came forth when he cried. He was so much man that he thirsted at the well; Yet he was so much God that he saved her soul from Hell. He was so much man that he died upon a tree; Yet he was so much God he arose in victory

Hebrews 2:16-18

16-18Its obvious, of course, that he didnt go to all this trouble for angels. It was for people like us, children of Abraham. Thats why he had to enter into every detail of human life. Then, when he came before God as high priest to get rid of the peoples sins (propitiation for the sins of the people), he would have already experienced it all himselfall the pain, all the testingand would be able to help where help was needed.
