At various times in the past and in various different ways, God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets; but in our own time, the last days, He has spoken to us through His Son, the Son that He has appointed to inherit everything and through whom He made everything there is. He is the radiant light of God’s glory and the perfect copy of His nature, sustaining the universe by His powerful command; and now that He has destroyed the defilement of sin, He has gone to take His place in heaven at the right hand of Divine Majesty. So He is now as far above the angels as the title which He has inherited is higher than their own name.
God has never said to any angel: You are my Son, today I have become your Father; or: I will be a father to Him and He a son to Me. Again, when He brings the First-born into the world, He says: Let all the angels of God worship Him. About the angels, He says: He makes His angels winds and His servants flames of fire, but to His Son He says: God, your throne shall last forever and ever; and His royal sceptre is the sceptre of virtue; virtue you love as much as you hate wickedness. This is why God, your God, has anointed You with the oil of gladness above all your rivals. And again: It is you, Lord, who laid earth’s foundations in the beginning, the heavens are the work of your hands; all will vanish, though you remain, all wear out like garment; You will roll them up like a cloak, and like a garment they will changed. But Yourself, You never change and Your years are unending.
Hebrews 1:1-12 (above) is telling us Jesus Christ was there in the beginning, the essence of God personified, who’s above every angel in heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. We are His image (Gen.1:27). And if above every angel in heaven certainly above us for we are made lower than the angels of heaven (Heb.2:7). In Chapter 2, He becomes lower than the angels to rescue us and give us salvation. God loved us so much He became human (Jn 3:16), to vanquish the penalty of sin (1Jn 3:4). Sin = death with no hope, in other words you forfeit the gift of eternal life. And just like Adam & Eve utilized their free will, we too have a choice to make. Without Him we would be trap in this world of decay without hope, not ever knowing the love of God. Thanks to and because of Jesus’ death and resurrection we have a choice to receive Him into our heart and lives and change from the inside. He gave us the gift of forgiveness, He took upon Himself our sin (1Pe 2:24) and in exchange gave us salvation. By following His truth, having faith, enduring this life and its challenges with His grace, we too can and will obtain life everlasting at His second coming. We “all wear out like garments” in our present state yet, we have hope in a kingdom without agony or tears (Rev.21:4). Our faith (believing in His gospel) and our faithfulness in doing God’s will (His commandments and status) will assure us our names will be in the Book of Life (Rev. 3:5). The Father has a purpose since the beginning for each of us. It ran into a bit of a snag with Lucifer wanting to upstage the Creator of us all (Is. 14:14). But God’s purpose is and will be accomplished, ending well for whoever (human) chooses to part take. The angels who followed Satan and Satan himself forfeited their life. God is Holy, merciful, just and gives and gave every opportunity for His creation to change their evil tendencies. Truth not lies, love not envy, harmony not strife will once again rule when God establishes His kingdom here on planet earth.
God is a title, Yah, YHWH is the Father’s name, and He calls Yeshu’a/ Jesus His Son ‘God’ and His throne will last forever. There is no question the Father is in Him and He in the Father, they are One. Their spirits are joined together. Jesus is the first-born, incarnated; God with us. He was the One Moses talked to (not ever seeing Him), before His human birth. In the flesh, He walked with our ancestors, teaching and being an example to us all, by His mannerism and behavior. He, born a Hebrew, the root of David (Rev.5:5) a proper king became one of us, experience every emotion, every hardship to the point of death on a cross (Jn 12:27; Eph.2:16), he humbled Himself to teach us the Father’s love, that through humility not arrogance we can get to know the Father. We wouldn’t have to face eternal death. He opened the communications to the Father, through His example of prayer – open communication not a series of repetitiveness. But talking to the Father of everything going on in your life. And in many ways He communicates back to us, through His word, through people, through nature, etc. God loves us and wants to get to know us, even though He knows us He wants for us to acknowledge Him, personally know Him. How in that love we should behave for the betterment of everyone and especially ourselves in our relationship towards Him and others. Our lives will be enriched. We are all God’s children and all He ask is for us to love Him back. Jesus is our door to the Father, through Him and Him alone we can come to the Father (Jn 14:6). He left the majesty of heaven and took our sins upon Himself (Gal.1:4), provides atonement for our sins and through Him we can approach the Father. The Father sees His righteousness not our sinfulness. His pureness cover all our sins in the Father’s eyes. We can not do it alone we need His grace in us, His help. Jesus came not to abolish God’s law (Matt.5:17) but to reinstate, reinforce the laws of the Father. The two greatest commandments: loving God above anything, everything else and your neighbor as one would love himself (paraph.Matt.22:37-40). We are blessed when followed (Rev.22:14). His Commandments (Exodus 20) shows us how far we have fallen into sin and because of. At this point you might be asking but Lucifer first introduced our first parents to rebellion, and rightly so. But they had as we have a choice. Through one man sin enter but also through One man (Rom.5:18) sin was pardon and this satanic rebellion will be crushed (Rev.20:10). Because He pardons us upon acceptance doesn’t mean to keep disobeying, keep our rebellious nature but change our ways to reflect His love. The first 4 Commandments are about loving the Father/Creator (who first loved us) for who He IS, the rest is about loving our fellow-man. Yah cares about us as individuals as each of us were His only child. We have our own uniqueness in His grace. We are not made robots to the whims of the evil one, but each independent and a free-thinker, in harmony to God’s purpose. God is LOVE (1Jn 4:8).
This is Jesus’ main theme to get to know the Father, be one with the Father, establish a personal relationship with the Father, doing the Father’s will. Yeshu’a/Jesus Christ showed us how and with Him living in our hearts we follow His lead. Through prayer, a powerful gift given to us. No one sees the Father without acknowledging and confessing our sins (1Jn 1:9), and asking Jesus to come into our heart. By our invitation. It begins there! Jesus’ told us He is the way, the truth and the life and no one comes to the Father but by Him (paraph Jn 14:6). We need to believe His gospel, He IS who He says He is. He gives us the Comforter upon accepting Him in our hearts and upon being baptised (the washing away of our old self and becoming new creation) into His family – His Holy Spirit guides us into having our own personal relationship with Him. In giving Him our lives, He will change our ways to fit His will, a partnership is developed through time. As we nourish our human relationships we too need to nourish our relationship to the Father through His Son, through prayers, through reading His Word and keeping it, through fellowship. One freely gives a smitten of time to Him daily in prayer for our day to be enhanced and our evening to be at peace, always in thanksgiving. And devote His Holy day to contemplate His majesty, studying and fellowship, doing His work not ours, caring for our fellow-man, being helpful, spreading His message, if not by words certainly by actions. A smile goes along way, doing things in gladness lifts your spirits. He knows the count of every hair on our head (Matt. 10:30), knows every fault, yet while we were still sinners He came to forgive us our trespasses (Rom. 5:8). And help us not to offend again, still we are all human and will have the tendency to fall but through confession and picking ourselves up He is just in forgiving our sins to a humble heart. Our redemption lies in Him, our Lord and Savior.
At His death and resurrection, He accomplished the task He was sent to do, to redeem us from the trap of death (spiritually, and one day physically as well). God is Spirit (Jn 4:24) and we must worship Him in spirit and truth. Yeshu’a conquered death and gives us life eternal. He left us not alone for at His ascension He promised and sent us His Holy Spirit (Acts2:23) to teach us ALL, that by believing in His Gospel ( His birth, death and resurrection ) and keeping His commandments; He told us if we love Him we keep His laws (paraph.Jn 14:15), His ways, we too can be where He has been preparing a place for us (Jn 14:2-3), even if we physically die we know to whom our hearts belong to, we know where we’re going and at a twinkling of an eye at the appointed hour believers will be caught up to meet Him, both resurrected from the dead and translated if alive. This is our hope! Praise be to God! Our Holy Father and Creator. Our Divine Majesty! Thank you to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who made it possible to return home, thank you to The Holy Spirit who makes it possible for us to repent and help us to stay steadfast. It all starts with believing in the Great I AM and inviting Him into our hearts.
Jesus is seated at the right hand of Divine Majesty, His Father and our Creator, advocating for us, lets not disappoint Him. Believers are strangers in this present world, we must keep vigilant, awake and wear the full armor of God to combat the arrows that are constantly being thrown. Having Him near is our protection against these arrows (trials and tribulation). Hope for a better outcome, never giving in to despair. Praying constantly. Just a little while longer till everyone hears the message and the last trumpet blows. Marana tha!
Give your heart to the one who will take good care of your person, here on earth, in heaven and all eternity. Grace be with you, mercy, and peace, from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love. 2Jn 1:3
