An Insight into the book of Hebrews

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ! I wish you all a happy day! Similar to my previous series on the book of Ephesians, I am delighted to start a new thread on meditating the book of Hebrews. If you are a new Christian breaking your head trying to understand the truths hidden in this incredible book, you can be benefited by reading this blog in the light of God`s word and with the help of the holy Spirit. I pray that as we go through this series, your hearts will be enlightened and you will be able to love the Lord like never before. Amen.
                                                                 CHAPTER 1
I would like to simplify the meditation of Hebrews Chapter 1 as answers to a few questions. Roll on and be blessed!
Who is the Son Of God?
  • In the past, God spoke to our fathers through prophets in diverse manners. (Heb 1:1)
  • But, in the later times he speaks to us through his son Jesus Christ of Nazareth. (Heb 1:2)
  • God appointed Jesus Christ to be the heir of all things. (1:2)
  • Through Christ, God made the worlds. (1:2)
  • Christ being the brightness of God`s glory and the very image of God`s person upholds everything, by the word of his power. (1:3)
  • Christ by himself purged our sins.(1:3)
  • He is sitting at the right hand of the majesty on high. (Heb 1:3)
How is the Son Of God so much better than Angels?

  • The son of God, by inheritance has a more excellent name than angels. (Heb 1:4)
  • He is made to be far above and so much better than any angel (Heb 1:4)
  • God has established his relationship with Christ by mentioning that, he is his begotten son and God shall be the father and Christ shall be the Son. This has not been said to any angel. (Heb 1:5)
  • When Jesus Christ was born, he let all the angels of God, worship him. (Heb 1:6)
  • God made his angels as spirits, but he made his ministers as flames of fire. (Heb 1:7)
  • The throne of the son of God is for ever and ever and his sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of God`s kingdom. (Heb 1:8)
  • Christ loved righteousness and hated iniquity. Hence God anointed him with the oil of gladness above all his fellows. (Heb 1:9)
  • It has been written in the word, the permanent existence and the omnipotence of Christ in the next three verses as below.
  • He laid the foundations of the  world and the heavens are the works of his hands. (Heb1:10)
  • The heaven and earth shall perish. But, Christ shall remain. (Heb 1:11)
  • The heaven and earth shall wax old as a garment. (Heb 1:11); As a vesture, they shall be folded up and can change. But, Christ remains the same and his years shall never fail. (Heb 1:12)
  • Christ has been made to sit at the right hand of the Father, till his enemies are made his footstool. (Heb 1:13)
  • Angels are ministering spirits, sent to minister unto us, the heirs of salvation. (Heb 1:14)
Life application:
  1. The Son of God, Jesus Christ of Nazareth has been given the authority over everything on heaven and on Earth.
  2. Angels can never be of match in power, authority or ability to the son of God.
  3. Jesus Christ, the Son Of God alone is worthy of all our praise, honor and worship.
  4. Angels can never be an object of worship because thy are not God, neither can they match God.
  5. Angels are given to minister unto every born-again Christian, being the co-heirs of salvation along with Christ.
  6. Last but not the least, Satan is just an angel.
  7. Satan can never be equaled to Christ in any way. Like any other angel, his powers are also limited.
