After making puriﬁcation for sins, hesat down at the right hand of theMajesty on high,4 having become asmuch superior to angels as the namehe has inherited is more excellentthan theirs.
He Sat Down Puriﬁed Sins Sat Down = ﬁnished His name is Everything“Jesus” should be on our lips more than hope of angels around us
5 For to which of the angelsdid God ever say,"You are my Son,today I have begotten you"?Or again,"I will be to him a father,and he shall be to me a son"?
He’s No Angel Angels aren’t God Angels are created beings They are not omniscient,omnipresent, or omnipotent Demons are fallen AngelsJesus is greater than them all and they bow down to him
What is Your Struggle? Eyes on Jesus Are You Amazed?
1 Therefore we must pay much closer attentionto what we have heard, lest we drift away fromit.2 For since the message declared by angelsproved to be reliable, and every transgression ordisobedience received a just retribution,3 howshall we escape if we neglect such a greatsalvation? It was declared at ﬁrst by the Lord,and it was attested to us by those who heard,4 while God also bore witness by signs andwonders and various miracles and by gifts ofthe Holy Spirit distributed according to his will.
Neglecting Salvation Lack of attention = drift All Must Deal with truth of salvation one way or another Jesus taught it, discipleswitnessed it, & God professes it through miracles & signsThe point of miracles is not the act, but to bring glory to God
5 Now it was not to angels that God subjectedthe world to come, of which we are speaking.6 It has been testiﬁed somewhere,"What is man, that you are mindful of him,or the son of man, that you care for him?7 You made him for a little while lower than theangels; you have crowned him with glory andhonor, 8 putting everything in subjection underhis feet.
Now in putting everything in subjection to him,he left nothing outside his control. At present,we do not yet see everything in subjection tohim. 9 But we see him who for a little while wasmade lower than the angels, namely Jesus,crowned with glory and honor because of thesuffering of death, so that by the grace of Godhe might taste death for everyone.
10 For it was ﬁtting that he, for whom and bywhom all things exist, in bringing many sons toglory, should make the founder of their salvationperfect through suffering.11 For he whosanctiﬁes and those who are sanctiﬁed all haveone source. That is why he is not ashamed tocall them brothers,
12 saying,"I will tell of your name to my brothers;in the midst of the congregation I will sing yourpraise."13 And again,"I will put my trust in him."And again,"Behold, I and the children God has given me."
Author of SalvationGod Accepts US.... our hearts are awakened and ﬁlled by him Efforts at cleaning up are silly Christ died willingly out of lovefor those he created, not duty to a mean father He calls us to be family Trinity in the Gospel
14 Since therefore the children share in ﬂeshand blood, he himself likewise partook of thesame things, that through death he mightdestroy the one who has the power of death,that is, the devil,15 and deliver all those whothrough fear of death were subject to lifelongslavery.16 For surely it is not angels that hehelps, but he helps the offspring of Abraham
17 Therefore he had to be made like hisbrothers in every respect, so that he mightbecome a merciful and faithful high priest in theservice of God, to make propitiation for the sinsof the people.18 For because he himself hassuffered when tempted, he is able to help thosewho are being tempted.
Suffering Servant Jesus came for us God doesn’t need you, he wants you Jesus was like us in ﬂesh, perfect but felt all we feelChrist might not take away our suffering, but he knows what you are going through and promises his presence
