Studies in Hebrews
Pastor Ralph Ovadal
32 But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions;
33 Partly, whilst ye were made a gazingstock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, whilst ye became companions of them that were so used.
34 For ye had compassion of me in my bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of your goods, knowing in yourselves that ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance.
35 Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.
36 For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.
37 For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.
38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.
39 But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.

Important: SermonAudio tags will appear on some of the messages found on this web site. We are not in any way affiliated with SermonAudio! Please read the following explanation.
Those who listen to archived sermons or Heart of the Matter programs on this web site will notice that, currently, when they download some of those sermons and HOM programs that a SermonAudio logo appears. This is because Pilgrims Covenant Church messages were for a number of years posted at SermonAudio. But due to the increasingly deep compromise of SermonAudio in posting sermons from ministers unfaithful either in doctrine or practice or both, and also on account of the many corrupt conferences advertised on SermonAudio, we withdrew from SermonAudio. However, I did not realize when posting our sermons and programs on that site on a page for which we paid that the management was tagging our MP3 files with the logo of SermonAudio. We are working to remove the SermonAudio logo from all of the sermons and programs posted on this site which were previously posted at SermonAudio. However, this takes much time; so we felt it important to post this explanation and also this warning concerning SermonAudio, a web site with many sound ministers, but also many which are corrupting the Lord's blood-bought church.
