Hebrews 1, A Closer Look, 5 Things,

I really love the book of Hebrews! Why? And for you it may be similar, b/c a part of me knows I am headed right for the sonship or daughtership (for you) of GOD.

Allow me to brek it down,

Why is the Son or Daughter much superior to the Angels? Let’s look at a block of Scripture:

1 In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. 3 The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. 4 So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs.

The prophets were angels in the sense that they were ‘messengers’. Angel = messenger. And often the prophets were ones that worked with their angels very well. Everyone has an angel assigned to them. They whisper to us and prod and encourage us. A messenger of GOD must wield power, signs and wonders. Yes! That is how we people know to listen and believe. But, I digress.

When Christ Jesus came, He was not only a powerful prophet or messenger but He had much more to offer. What were these things?

1) He is an owner. He spread the wealth. That’s something you don’t read about in the Scriptures. But search your hearts. He did that. Just like St. Francis. Just like Prince Siddharta Gautama, the Buddha.

2) He is engineer. He made the Universe, and He is going to make YOU into the YOU, YOU’VE always WANTED TO BE!

3) Related to that, He is the How to Be! Everyone likes cool people. A lot of people think Christians are not it. No one is actually. But the Son is like Ferris Buehler. Everyone likes Him, why? Because He is it. He IS the personality. Why? Because He is just like His FATHER, the FATHER, the Creator of Everything!

4) He is Faithful and True! Once you are His, He will never let you down!

5) The Last in the passage is the purification of sins. Not only did He make peace, He provided the means to have peace. He really is the All in All. And He showed us the latest and greatest expression of His Love, which is sacrificial love. It is lowering yourself in order to raise others up. Something that all parents understand.

A messenger’s job is simply to deliver messages and that’s it. Jonah was an example! But a son or daughter which you are to be is more than that. With greater power comes greater responsibility, and I quote Spiderman. If you want daughtership or sonship you have to commit to those five things. You will share everything you have (including money), you will reflect His Character, help people be all they can be, be faithful to those He gives you, and live a life of the greatest LOVE!

I’d like to add, that the sonship is not really talking about power. It is more about love. But when you really start to minister, you can’t hate power. Power is needed, just as money is although people hypocritically say money is bad. If you get added responsibilities, as a messenger. You will be the most effective messenger when you have special powers. It’s not something to grasp in itself, but don’t be surprised if GOD leads you, gives you powers, and directs you to develop them.
