HEBREWS 10.25

"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." NKJV, biblegateway.com

Once in a while I have discussions with fellow believers in fulfillment about what in the Bible is applicable today. This one is easy.

Hebrews 10.25 is a verse that is often used to show we should not neglect going to church. But there is something here that most people ignore, including many who believe, as I do, that all things are fulfilled. And that is the phrase, "as you see the Day approaching." Those of us who have studied prophecy sufficiently know that the terminology of "the Day," refers the day of the coming of the Lord. So, the writer of Hebrews is giving instruction to those that were seeing that "Day" approaching.

Notice this verse is written in present tense. So the writer was writing to his contemporaries. What was present tense 1900+ years ago is past from our vantage point.

So, this Scripture is not condemning people who do not go to church today. It is also one piece of the prophetic puzzle that shows that the Day of the Lord was expected in the lifetime of the original audience of the book of Hebrews, which is no one today.

So, in regards to this Scripture, it is not applicable today.
