Hebrews 2:2 – So Great Salvation

Hebrews 2:2
2 For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward;
3 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;
4 God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?

Verses 3 and 4 are one question being asked in response to the statement in verse 2.  This passage of scripture highlights to very important aspects of our relationships with God, both valid and both important.  1) The Bible teaches that when the angels in Heaven rebelled and turned on the Lord, He damned them and created Hell as their place of punishment. (Matthew 25:41) Accepting the fact that these holy servants who existed in glory and constantly beheld the Lord’s face could not escape the wrath of God, how could we ever hope to to escape His wrath if we reject His Salvation?  We can’t, but that leads right to the next point.  2)  There is a great Salvation!  It is so great, in fact, that it is capable of justifying sinners in the eyes of God and reconciling us to Him forevermore.  That Salvation is not a place or a time or a thing; it is a person, and His name is Jesus Christ.
