Did Paul write the Book of Hebrews?

Who wrote the Book of Hebrews? Who was the author of Hebrews?

… The letter closes with the words “Grace be with you all” (Hebrews 13:25), which is the same closing found in each of Paul’s known letters (see Romans 16:20; 1 Corinthians 16:23; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Galatians 6:18; Ephesians 6:24; Philippians 4:23; Colossians 4:18; 1 Thessalonians 5:28; 2 Thessalonians 3:18; 1 Timothy 6:21; 2 Timothy 4:22; Titus 3:15; and Philemon 25). However, it should be noted that Peter (1 Peter 5:14; 2 Peter 3:18) used similar—though not identical—closings. It is also possible that it was simply customary to close letters like this with the words “Grace be with you all” during this time period.

Church tradition teaches that Paul wrote the book of Hebrews, and until the 1800s, that issue was closed. However, though a vast majority of Christians—both and scholars and the laity—still believe Paul wrote the book, there are some tempting reasons to think otherwise.

Wes Hall: ‘God’s promises are not guarantees’ — God will not do our part

The bride makes herself ready.

5:45 The word God gave Wes for this meeting: “My promises are not guarantees.”

Hebrew 6:11-12 We desire that each one of you may show the same diligence to the fullness of hope even to the end, that you won’t be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and perseverance inherited the promises.

“You can have a promise from God and never see its fulfillment because of your own inaction and your own lack of faith and perseverance related to the promises.”

“Are you ready to enter into the fulfillment and make the changes that are necessary to lay hold of the promises.”

33 “Are we responding to Him with quick obedience?”

“He will not do it all. You cannot do His part. He will not do your part.”

“The reason we cultivate that fellowship with the Holy Spirit is so we can obey Him. …even if it is difficult. We cannot have the fullness of power unless we have surrendered our lives fully to His leadership in every area of our lives.”

“Look at your own life, and say ‘Lord, where am I resisting Your leadership?’ … It’s so easy to point at others. … I want to live in nearness to You. I want to walk under the leadership of the Holy Spirit that I might walk in the power as Jesus walked in the power of the Holy Spirit.”

“Don’t despise the day of small beginnings. … Use what He gave you. Step out in the day of small things, and He will multiply it as you step out and release it to others.”

“He will not do your part. We cannot do His.”

Romans 8:1 in a regular ESV Bible:

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

Footage of Sodom & Gomorrah – Ron Wyatt’s wife tells the story

About 30 years ago, I saw this from on top of Masada, and asked others what this city ruin was. No one knew. It definitely looked like the ruin of a city to me.

– –

9:10 Gomorrah is below Masada, next to the Dead Sea. Sodom is at the southern end of the Dead Sea.

14:35 Sulfur balls, brimstone that landed on the city — millions that rained down, burning even rock. Tested to be 96% sulfur plus phosphorus.

They even found parts of human skeletons, burnt and gnarled.

31:00 Drone footage from below Masada

34:35 Thermal ionization from the extreme heat — “exceeding 2,000°F” (Ron @ min. 53:40)

41:05 The ziggurat

42:50 The sphynx with Masada behind and above it

54:00 Regarding all of this ash, Ron quotes part of this text from Malachi 4:

“For, behold, the day comes, it burns as a furnace; and all the proud, and all who work wickedness, will be stubble; and the day that comes will burn them up,” says Yahweh of Armies, “that it shall leave them neither root nor branchBut to you who fear my name shall the sun of righteousness arise with healing in its wings. You will go out, and leap like calves of the stall. You shall tread down the wicked; for they will be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I make,” says Yahweh of Armies.

Ron Wyatt: The Miraculous 1st Trip to Discover Noah’s Ark – Exactly 300 cubits long – Gen. 6:15! | Noah’s wife’s 18 foot grave explained

Ron Wyatt, his sons and wife describe the adventure! Ron has since died.

When Ron Wyatt 1st went to Turkey to search for the boat-shaped object he had seen 17 years earlier in Life Magazine, he had no idea where to look. He didn’t speak the language. All he knew was that it was in the mountains. Then, one simple prayer, as he and his 2 sons entered the area in a taxi, led to incredible discoveries, all connected to Noah and the ark. Ron and his sons, Danny and Ronnie tell the story and some new information is shared, especially at the end. Originally made for Warriors for Christ, it is long, and I thank you for watching and hope you enjoy!- Mary Nell (Mrs. Ron Wyatt) Lee.

Genesis 6:15 says the ark shall be 300 cubits, which is what this artifact is in Egyptian cubits.

Acts 7:22 “And Moses (author of Genesis) was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians….” Was raised as an Egyptian.

This boat artifact is exactly 515 feet long!

40:15 Noah’s wife’s grave explained. She was a giant. Her sarcophagus was 18 feet long. [Elsewhere it’s said she was 15 feet long. Kent Hovind explains why in his creation series.] Gold and jewels in her coffin were sold by the “Christians” for $100 million on the black market in Istanbul.

“Worship Leaders Hit with Pandemic Burnout” — They’re burned out because it’s fake — not really worship

It’s not because of Covid. They’re burned out because it’s fake — not real worship. God requires worshipers worship in Spirit and in truth, which requires holiness, being right with God and others, like Paul always practiced (Acts 24:16). Then God responds with His love and glory, and it’s never boring, dull or unfulfilling.

Worship Leaders Hit with Pandemic Burnout

Music ministry has always been demanding, but the past two years have made it unsustainable for some.
JANUARY 26, 2022

Dianna Holden had been looking for an opportunity to step down as her church’s worship leader for a few years. After 27 years of serving, Holden felt like she was drawing from an empty well. … She didn’t have any reserves left.


Run To Win! – Paul made certain he would not lose his salvation, exercising self-control in ‘all things,’ as winning athletes must – 1 Cor. 9

As winning athletes must, Paul exercised self-control in all things, brought his body into submission so he would win an incorruptible crown, making sure he would not be rejected.

1 Corinthians 9:24-27:

Don’t you know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run like that, that you may winEvery man who strives in the games exercises self-control in all things. Now they do it to receive a corruptible crown, but we an incorruptible [eternal life in heaven]. I therefore run like that, not aimlessly [focused]. I fight like that, not beating the air, but I beat my body and bring it into submission, lest by any means, after I have preached to others, I myself should be rejected.
