1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
4 Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?
6 And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.
7 And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.
8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.
9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
10 And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands:
11 They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment;
12 And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.
13 But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool?
14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation? I was thinking on this subject a little on how we talk on Christ humanity only to forget his power given by the Father to his Son. To think on the subject of Lordship and God's power we can realize quickly the human Jesus, was given a position not given to anyone else, yet he was before man ever was or the human form of who he is and was as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. His power and kingdom given by the Father. Jesus being the word of God, the word having authority before creation for the world was formed by the word of God. This power of God given to the human Jesus, and the incarnated Christ that dwells on high until the time his Father says it time.
How Christ being seperated from the Father, and yet the same is possible. God by himself is fully God and Jesus by himself is fully God, but Jesus with God is the word is God, God with just the word is still fully God and Christ. Christ in the flesh fully God and the word in human form, with the power of humankind and God by the power of the word of God. Two beings eternal without end. They are the first and the last. There is no other God but Father, Son And Holy Spirit. All power equal, yet God has one authority not seen in the other two and that is the hour known of Christ's physical return. Yet his kingdom is the New Jerusalem, and he will rule this kingdom, that He preparing for Christ return. And all those that choose Jesus will reign with him in the New Jerusalem. The believers will be serving Christ in his kingdom. Each part of God is present within each other. The human flesh only present in Christ, yet in the garden Jehovah did walk with man, and even visited Abraham, Enoch as well in chapter 5 of Genesis. No doubt God appeared in the flesh without human birth.
When we study the cross we see Christ humanity but not the authority God gave Christ as he far as power bestowed while hanging on the cross, for he died for mankind. Yet perhaps his power shown through the ability to still communicate his love for his disciples and the repented thief ont he cross. Maybe what we see his power to convey his love despite the suffering. The power to still forgive, because it was in his authority to forgive, but not his authority to come off the cross. Yet when the work of the cross was over and descended to hell and set the captives free, he arose to victory, claiming his spot beside his heavenly Father has he ascended upward leading the captives home.
His power to over come sin and death, but something still has to be, each of us is still left with a choice to believe in Jesus, repent of our sins and obey Jesus, to have eternal life with Him. The only other choice and that door is wide open it is the ticket already declared unless exchanged for the golden ticket of faith in Christ Jesus. Yet upon death there is no other opportunity in which man can be saved through Christ Jesus. Those with the golden ticket can never be lost from Jesus, because God granted those who would repent to be children of God.
Dear Heavenly Father, remind us of the authority you gave to Christ and also the authority and power in the New Kingdom of Jerusalem. In Jesus precious name, Amen.
