The Priesthood of Believers Pt.5

The Identity of The Son of God
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy.

God Speaks To Us Through Our Spiritual Heritage
Hebrews 1:1 In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways…

God’s Final Word Became Flesh…
Hebrews 1:2 …but in these last days He has spoken to us by His Son, Whom He appointed Heir of all things, and through Whom He made the universe.

The Son Reveals God To Humanity In Human Form
Hebrews 1:3a The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of His being, sustaining all things by His powerful word..

By Becoming Human He Could Completely Address Human Sin
Hebrews 1:3b …after He had provided purification for sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven

The Son Is Greater Than Angelic Beings
Hebrews 1:4-5  So He became as much superior to the angels as the name He has inherited is superior to theirs. For to which of the angels did God ever say, “You are My Son; today I have become Your Father? Or again, “I will be His Father, and He will be My Son”?

The Son Is Worshipped as God By Angels
Hebrews 1:6-8  When God brings His firstborn into the world, He says, “Let all God’s angels worship Him!” In speaking of the angels He says, “He makes His angels winds, His servants flames of fire.”

The Son is Acknowledged By God as God
Hebrews 1:8-9  But about the Son he says, “Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever, and righteousness will be the scepter of your kingdom. You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy.”

God Points To The Evidence of Creation for Confirmation of His Son’s Identity
Hebrews 1:10-12 He also says, “In the beginning, O Lord, YOU laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of YOUR hands. They will perish, but YOU remain; they will all wear out like a garment. YOU will roll them up like a robe; like a garment they will be changed. But YOU remain the same, and YOUR years will never end!”

God Reveals That Angels Serve Him But The Son Redeems Us for Him
Hebrews 1:13-14 To which of the angels did God ever say, “Sit at My right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet”? Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?
