God Never Said
Long ago, God used the prophets to speak to our ancestors many times and in many ways; but, during these last times, God used His Son to speak to us.
God appointed him to inherit everything, through him God made the universe, the Son is the shining brightness of God's glory and the exact picture of God's real being, the Son holds up the universe with his powerful word, after he had provided a cleansing from sin, he sat down at God's right side in heaven.
Jesus has received a title--SON.
This is better than any angels, He is so much more important than angels.
God never said this to an angel:
"You are My Son. I have fathered you today." Psalm 2: 7.
and again, "I will be his Father and he will be My Son." 2 Samuel 7:14.
Again, when God brought His first Son into the world, He says: "All God's angels must worship him!." Psalm 97: 7.
God was talking about angels here: "God makes His angles winds and His servants flames of fire." Pslam 104:4
But God said this about His Son: "Your throne, O God, lasts forever and ever, You rule your kingdom fairly. You have loved what is right and hated what is wrong, this is why God, your God, has made you king over your friends with the oil of gladness." Psalm 45:6-7.
God also said this about His Son; "Lord , in the begining, you laid the foundation of the earth, the heavens are the result of your work, the heavens and the earth will be destroyed, but you will continue, like a robe, they will get old, they will be rolled up like an overcoat; they will be changed like a robe, but YOU are still the same, You will never get old." Psalm 102 : 25-27.
God never said this to any of the angles;"Sit at My right side until I put your enemies under your feet for a footstool." Psalm 110:1.
All angels are serving spirits sent to help men who will receive salvation.
This is why we must pay attention to the things we have heard, if we don't, we might drift away.
The messge that God spoke through angels was firm, every person who broke God's law or disobeyed it received fair punishment, if we don't care about so great a salvation, we will not escape punishment, in the beginning, the Lord Jesus told about this salvation, later, the people who heard Him showed us that it was true. Also God proved that it was true with miracles, amazing things, and different kinds of powers and spiritual gifts from the Holy Spirit which were distributed the way God wanted.
God did not put the future world under the angles, someone has said somewhere in the scriptures: "What is man,that You should care about him? What are his children, that You should take care of them? You made man a little lower than the angels, You crowned him with glory and honor, You put everything under his control Pslam 8: 4-7
When God "put everything" under man, this meant everything! But, today, we see that everything has not yet been put under man, we see Jesus, He was made " a little lower than angles," But when Jeus suffered and died, he was "crowned with glory and honor". by God's gracious love he did this to taste death for every person.
God made everything for Himself, when He brought many sons to glory, it was only right for Him to use suffering to make the Leader of their salvation perfect.
The people who were made holy and the one who made them holy all come from one FATHER, that is why Jesus is not ashamed to call them "brothers".
"I will announce Your name to my brothers, I will sing to You in the middle of the congregation." Psalm 22;22.
"I will trust Him." Isaiah 8;17.
"Look! I am with the children whom God gave Me." Isaiah 8;18.
The "children" are human, so Jesus also shared in their humanity, He wanted to use death to destroy the devil who has the power of death, Jesus also wanted to set all people free from the slavery of fearing death all their lives.
It is clear that He is helping Abraham's descendants, not angels, this means that Jesus had to become like his brothers in every way, then He could become a faithful, merciful high priest, offering himself to God for the forgiveness of the sins of the people.
Before Jesus suffered, HE was tempted, that is why he is able to help people who are being tempted now.
