Hebrews 11:30-40 Part 6 (Hebrews 11:30-40)

Tim Douglass, January 21, 2018
Part of the Letter to the Hebrews series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

At the end of the day, where did the faith of these Old Testament believers get them? For many the end results weren’t great from a worldly perspective, but God didn’t abandon them or ignore them. They were recognized by Him as having earned a good reputation because of their faith, but there was still more ahead. The true and complete salvation that they hoped for and needed was promised, but only received after all these people had died. God’s plan for them was different.

Hebrews 11:30-40

30By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days. 31By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace. 32And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets: 33Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, 34Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens. 35Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection: 36And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: 37They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; 38(Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth. 39And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise: 40God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect. (KJV)
