Why are you so downcast, O my soul? Why do you sign within me? Hope in God! For I shall again be thanking him, in the presence of my savior and my God.” (Psalm 41:5-6). Through these two biblical passages, we can conclude that God intended for the people to set one day aside for His worship, a day in which there can be no other distractions. God also encouraged the people to assemble in a “procession to the house of God,” in order to give thanks and to lift the soul – for hope in God, and thanksgiving in the presence of God, with others in a throng, is the antidote to a downcast soul. God clearly intended that the people not forget Him, which is why He instructed the people to set aside a day to remember him each week, and the encouragement to assemble, both in the Hebrews passage and the Psalm passage shows that assembly is the chosen way to remember Him.
The Lord also meant for the assemblies to be a way for people to gather together to “arouse one another to charity and good works.” (Hebrews 10:24). This is the first part of the epistle in which the Lord exhorts the people to not forsake assemblage. The Lord clearly wants us to be mindful of charity and good works for others, and He clearly intends that the assemblage be a way for people to gather together to arouse one another to perform these works. This is one of His intentions for these assemblies, along with remembering and worshiping Him and giving Him thanks.
Hebrews 10:25 also contained the phrase “and this all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” (Hebrews 10:25). .
