Our Hope of Glory: The Anchor of Our Soul

Handbook 5: Article 14 - The Journey to Perfection


"...Christ... whose house we are, if we hold fast our confidence and the boast of our hope firm to the end."

Hebrews 3:6

The Anchor of Our Soul

"...God, desiring... to show the heirs of His promise the unchangeableness of His purpose, interposed with an oath, in order that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we may have strong encouragement, we who have fled for refuge in laying hold of the hope set before us. This hope which we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and stead- fast and one that enters within (or inside) the veil where Jesus has entered as a forerunner for us, having become a high priest after the order of Melchizedik."

Hebrews 6:17-20

A Fixed Hope

"See what kind of love the Father has bestowed upon us, that we should be called children of God; and such we are... and it has not appeared as yet what we shall be. We know that when He appears we shall be like Him, because we shall see Him just as He is. "And everyone who has this hope fixed on Him, purifies Himself, just as He is pure."

1 John 3:1-3

A Living Hope

"Blessed be the God and Father of out Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and un- defiled and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you..."

1 Peter 1:3, 4

A Vibrant Hope

"For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform the body of our humble estate into conformity with the body of His glory, by the exertion of the power that He has even to subject all things to Himself."

Philippians 3:20, 21

A Hope Filled with Joy and Peace

"Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."

Romans 15:13

A Hope Filled With Glory

"For we have become partakers of Christ, if we hold fast the beginning of our assurance firm to the end."

Hebrews 3:14
