Hebrews 10:10-14 – An Expected End

Hebrews 10:10-14
10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
11 And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:
12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;
13 From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.
14 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.

Jeremiah 29:11
11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

-Around 2000 years ago, Jesus Christ arose from the dead, carried His atonement into Heaven itself and made peace with God the Father for all of mankind.  After He finished His great work, the Bible tells us in Hebrews 10 that He sat down and began expecting.  He’s been expecting ever since.  What is He expecting?  It is important to note here that the word “expect” conveys a sense of obligation or requirement.  As told In Hebrews 10:13, Jesus requires that “His enemies be made His footstool”, Jeremiah 29:11 tells us that Jesus requires His people to have a good end.  Basically, by shedding His blood, Jesus claimed authority to require everything in creation to turn out exactly the way He wants it to turn out.  Now, He sits and waits until it’s time for that requirement to be fully met.  “And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.” (1 Corinthians 15:28)
