Hebrews 10:25 says, “… not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching” (emphasis added).

It is likely that, with the covid pandemic, you’ve heard this verse many times. As the Gospel continues to spread to every corner of the earth, the “do not forsake assembling” looks different than it used to. Yet it is still relevant and most necessary.

Paul says it in the verse… “much more so as you see the Day approaching.” The “Day” is the day of Jesus’ return. We are to apply this verse even more so as His return draws near.

Assembling happens not only in churches but also in church houses, small group settings, and gatherings with other believers. Yes, it even happens on-line!!! There is wisdom and a warning in God’s Word to gather “more so as you see the Day approaching.”

  • It is critical we do not forsake assembling together as we move further into the last days so we are strengthened and protected (wisdom).

  • There will be spiritual forces that resist the saints assembling (a warning).  

  • There are many reasons to assemble, or meet together, as the NIV Bible translation states…
“…not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”
Quite possibly, the most important reason we are not to forsake assembling is this is God’s instruction for divine protection.

First Peter 5:8 reminds us to be vigilant because the adversary walks about like a lion, seeking to devour.

What does a lion do when he is seeking someone to devour? He looks for the prey in isolation.
The Word gives us a warning—do not forsake assembling because the enemy seeks to devour those who are in isolation.
