Question to Consider #1

Hebrews 10:26-28
26 
For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins,
27 but a fearful expectation of judgment, and a fury of fire that will consume the adversaries. 28 Anyone who has set aside the law of Moses dies without mercy on the evidence of two or three witnesses.

Breaking this down to its essence using the Strong’s Concordance:
Sinning = G264 :  to fail to do uprightly and completely (at any time, in any deed, word, or thought).

Deliberately = G1596 : voluntarily   /  Receiving = G2983 :  to take for oneself, i.e. to prefer.

Knowledge = G1922 : full discernment  /  Truth = G225 : without deception

Sacrifice = G2380 : to give up to destruction {by fire} / Fearful = G5398 : terrible

Judgment = G2920 : decision,tribunal  / Adversaries = G5227 : those opposed

Despises = G114 : to set aside  /  Law = G3551 : the Torah instructions  /

Consume = G2068 : devour, eat entirely

Dies = G599 : to die off, become dead, to be slain {present tense, active participle}

Without = G5565 : apart from  /  Mercy = G3628 : sympathy

Now applying the words as defined, from the original document:

26 For if we go on voluntarily failing to do uprightly and completely  after preferring the full discernment without deception, there no longer remains one given up to destruction for sins, 27 but a terrible expectation of a decision, and a fury of fire that will consume those opposed. 28 Anyone who has set aside the Torah instructions of Moses becomes dead apart from sympathy on the evidence of two or three witnesses.

The question to consider: Will the two (or three) witnesses of your acceptance or opposition to the Torah be your friends, neighbors, relatives? Will it be your Sunday school teacher or Pastor? Or, more likely, will it be those that know the Torah fully; Satan describing your failures and Yeshua as your defense attorney?

I welcome your thoughts on this verse.
