Hebrews 1:5–14 (ESV)
The Supremacy of God’s Son
5 For to which
of the angels did God ever say,
“You are my Son,
today I have begotten you”?
“I will be to him a father,
and he shall be to me a son”?
6 And again,
when he brings the firstborn into the world, he says,
“Let all God’s angels worship him.”
7 Of the angels he says,
“He makes his angels winds,
and his ministers a flame of fire.”
8 But of the
Son he says,
“Your throne, O God, is forever and ever,
the scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your kingdom.
9 You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
therefore God, your God, has anointed you
with the oil of gladness beyond your companions.”
“You, Lord, laid the foundation
of the earth in the beginning,
and the heavens are the work of your hands;
11 they will perish, but you remain;
they will all wear out like a garment,
12 like a robe you will roll them up,
like a garment they will be
But you are the same,
and your years will have no end.”
13 And to which
of the angels has he ever said,
“Sit at my right hand
until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet”?
14 Are they not all ministering spirits sent out to serve for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation?
We see in this passage, the comparison of Jesus to angels.
In fact, we see that Jesus is much more than the angels. He is not a created angel, but he is the Creator God. This passage is very clear that Jesus is more than a man, or angel... He is God.
O Lord, you are God, and you created all things. You are above all angels that were created by you. You sit at the Father’s right hand. When asked who are you, our response is that You are the Christ, the Son of God. Amen.
