Hebrews 6:13 When God made his promise to Abraham, since there was no one greater for him to swear by, he swore by himself, 14 saying, “I will surely bless you and give you many descendants.”[d] 15 And so after waiting patiently, Abraham received what was promised.

16 People swear by someone greater than themselves, and the oath confirms what is said and puts an end to all argument. 17 Because God wanted to make the unchanging nature of his purpose very clear to the heirs of what was promised, he confirmed it with an oath. 18 God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope set before us may be greatly encouraged. 19 We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, 20 where our forerunner, Jesus, has entered on our behalf.

            You may recall the symbol of an insurance company the used the rock of Gibraltar, pictured here looming over the town beneath, utilized to demonstrate in such a way as to indicate the surety of their products. A huge rock, formidable, long standing, and yet in the long haul of history subject just as you and I to the vagaries of time and decay.

            Not so with God. Our hope is secure. Not because of anything we have done, but because of what Jesus has done. He has shown us the way. If we do not shrink from it we may be rightly encouraged because God is Holy, and Jesus “accomplished” Holiness before us in his life, sacrifice and faithful love for the Father.

Rejoice the Lord is King
Your Lord and King adore
Mortals give thanks and sing
And triumph evermore

Lift up your heart lift up your voice
Rejoice again I say rejoice

Jesus the Saviour reigns
The God of truth and love
When He had purged our stains
He took His seat above

His kingdom cannot fail
He rules o’er earth and heaven
The keys of death and hell
Are to our Jesus given

He sits at God’s right hand
Till all His foes submit
And bow to His command
And fall beneath His feet

Rejoice in glorious hope
Jesus the Judge shall come
And take His servants up
To their eternal home

We soon shall hear the archangel’s voice
The trump of God shall sound rejoice
