Hebrews 1:5–14 (ESV)

The Supremacy of God’s Son

For to which of the angels did God ever say,

       “You are my Son,

today I have begotten you”?

Or again,

       “I will be to him a father,

and he shall be to me a son”?

And again, when he brings the firstborn into the world, he says,

       “Let all God’s angels worship him.”

Of the angels he says,

       “He makes his angels winds,

and his ministers a flame of fire.”

But of the Son he says,

       “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever,

the scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your kingdom.

   You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;

       therefore God, your God, has anointed you

with the oil of gladness beyond your companions.”

10 And,

       “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 changed.

       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?

 

The continuation of yesterday’s reading is still a good proof text into the Supremacy of Jesus and a strike against the Jehovah’s Witness.  They claim that he is just an angel, like the archangel Michael.  Yet today’s reading says For to which of the angels did God ever say, “You are my Son, today I have begotten you”?  Or again, “I will be to him a father, and he shall be to me a son”?   The Scriptures also says, “Let all God’s angels worship him.”  The Lutheran Study Bible further states: “Jesus, through whom the Father created all things, and by whose Word all things are sustained, clearly reveals the gracious will of the Father to us. Although Jesus is heavenly like the angels, He is no mere creature. He is the firstborn Son of the Father, who shares with us all that the Father has. He frees us to receive God’s ministry, including the ministry given through the angels. 

 

I pray: Lord Jesus, thank You for creating and sustaining me. By Your Word, keep me in true faith, that I may inherit salvation. Amen.[1]

Look at the Words say they "fell away". The had it, but lost it. Just like the Bible says your name can be blotted out of the Book of Life.
