Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,
says Yahweh of Hosts. Zechariah 4:6
Lift up your heads, O gates, and be lifted up, O ancient doors,
That the King of Glory may come in! Who is this King of Glory?
Yahweh of Hosts: He is the King of Glory. Psalm 24:9-10

Why may we come boldly before the throne of grace?
Christ is a priest after the order of Melchizedek. Who was Melchizedek?

What is faith, according to the author of Hebrews?
In chapter 11 the writer gives us a list of the heroes of faith. In numerous cases a specific act of faith is given, and in some cases more than one. For example, by faith Abel offered a more excellent sacrifice than Cain. What act of faith is attributed to Moses' parents?
Verse 12:1 concludes, "Since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us." What else should we do?
