Playing With the Wrappings

May 8, 2011 Series: The Letter to the Hebrews

Passage: Hebrews 1:6–1:14

And again, 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 spirits, 
and his servants flames of fire.”

But about the Son he says,

“Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever; 
a scepter of justice 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.”

He also says,

“In the beginning, 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.”

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?
