HEBREWS 7-10

Hebrews 7 25: "wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them"

This passage shows that Jesus is our intercessor, not Mary or any of the other saints.

Hebrews 8 1: "now of the things which we have spoken the sum we have such an high priest who is set on the right hand of the throne of the majesty in the heavens"

2000 years ago when this was written, Christ was already in the Holy of Holies, seated on the right hand of the Father. He didn't enter into the Holy of Holies in 1844 as the Seventh Day Adventists say.

Hebrews 9 27: This verse clearly disproves reincarnation.

Hebrews 10 26: This verse is clear on the subject of whether or not you can loose your salvation.

Hebrews 6:4-8 is another passage that has caused me a great deal of worry. For I have been made abundantly aware of just how naturally unrighteous I still am, and it is so very hard for me to simply have faith in His grace {2 Corinthians 12:7-10}.

Don't worry. The only way you can loose your salvation is if you consciously decide to renounce your faith. If you say to yourself, "Screw this, this Christian life is too hard, I'm giving it up" then you will be out of the kingdom. Otherwise, as long as you continue to believe in God and grow in His grace and knowledge, you're all right.

Does telling Him that He can stick His calling count? For during a few times when I was hurting real bad, I have told Him that I did not sign up for more suffering. Thankfully, He didn't accept my resignation, just like He didn't the Prophet Jeremiah's {Jeremiah 20:7-18}.

We all have times where we get frustrated and feel the way you describe. Don't worry, though. Falling away involves a more concrete decision than that.
