Hebrews 12:23-25 The Passion Translation (TPT)
23 And as members of the church[a] of the Firstborn[b] all our names have been legally registered[c] as citizens of heaven! And we have come before God who judges all, and who lives among the spirits of the righteous who have been made perfect in his eyes![d]
24 And we have come to Jesus who established a new covenant with his blood sprinkled upon the mercy seat; blood that continues to speak from heaven, “forgiveness,” a better message than Abel’s blood that cries from the earth, “justice.”[e]
25 Make very sure that you never refuse to listen to God when he speaks![f] For the God who spoke on earth from Sinai is the same God who now speaks from heaven. Those who heard him[g] speak his living Word on earth found nowhere to hide, so what chance is there for us to escape if we turn our backs on God and refuse to hear his warnings as he speaks from heaven?
