Are these scriptures in the book of Hebrews talking about an apostate only ? Whats your take on them ?
Hebrews 6:4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost.5And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come. 6If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themeselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
Herbrews 10:26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins. 27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgement and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. 28 He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses. 29 Of how much sorer punishment,suppose ye; shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace ?
Would you agree with the following ?
When people deliberately reject Christ's offer of salvation, they reject God's most precious gift. They ignore the leading of the Holy Spirit, the one who communicates to us God's saving love. The warning was given to Jewish Christians who were tempted to reject Christ for Judaism, but it applies to anyone who rejects Christ for another religion or, having understood Christ's atoning work, deliberately turn away from it (see also Numbers 15:30,31 and Mark 3:28-30). The point is that there is no other acceptable sacrifice for sin than the death of Christ on the cross. If someone deliberately rejects the sacrifice of Christ after clearly understanding the Good News teaching about it, than there is no way for that person to be saved, because God has not provided any other name in all heaven for people to call on to save them (See Acts 4:12)
How have people insulted and disdained the Holy Spirit? The sacrifice of Christ is tied with the Holy Spirit;therefore, to scorn Christ's sacrifice is to insult and disdain the Holy Spirit by arrogantly rejecting him. The Holy Spirit is a person, not just a force or influence. To reject him is to cut off the means of God's acceptance. This is equivalent to blasphemy against the Holy Spirit (see Matthew 12:31,32). Deserving of great punishment are those who insult the Holy Spirit who brings God's mercy.
God's power is awesome, and his punishment terrible. These words give us a glimpse into the holiness of God. He is sovereign;his power is unlimited; He will do as He promises. This judgement is for those who have rejected God's mercy. For them, falling into God's hands will be a dreadful experience. They will have no more excuses. They will discover that they were wrong, but it will be too late. For those who accept Chirst's love and his salvation, however, the coming judgement is no cause for worry. Being saved through His grace, they have nothing to fear (see 1 John 4:18)
