God’s Supreme Salvation.

God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; who being brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of Majesty on high, having become so much better than the angels, as He by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.

For to which of the angels did He ever say:

“You are My Son,

Today I have begotten

You”?

And again:

I will be to Him a Father,

And he shall be to Me a

Son”?

But when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says:

“Let all the angels of God

worship Him.”

And of the angels He says:

“Who makes His angels

spirits

And His ministers a flame of fire.”

But to the Son He says:

“Your throne, O God is forever and ever;

A scepter of

Your righteousness is the

scepter of Your

kingdom.

You have loved righteousness and

hated lawlessness;

Therefore God, Your God,

has anointed You

With the oil of gladness

more than Your

companions.”

And:

“You Lord, in the

beginning laid the

foundation of the

earth,

And the heavens are the

work of Your hands.

They will perish, but You

remain;

And they will all grow

old like a garment;

Like a cloak You will fold 

them up,

and they will be

changed.

But You are the same,

And Your years will not

fail.”

But to which of the angels has He ever said:

“Sit at My right hand,

Till I make Your enemies

Your footstool”?

And are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?

Hebrews 1:1-14
