Hebrews 1

Hebrews 1: Jesus Christ Created All Things

Paul writes to the Hebrews and says; “God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he [Jesus Christ] made the worlds; 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;” (Hebrews 1:1-3) In other words, Paul explains that not only does God speak with Prophets and Apostles, but He also spoke with His Son, Jesus Christ. Paul also explains that under Heavenly Fathers [God] direction, Jesus Christ [God’s Son] created the World. This means that God laid out the blueprint for His plan, and under His direction, Jesus Christ created the world.

Paul then goes on to explain some very important doctrines;

“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. Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands:” (Hebrews 1:8-10)

This is what we can learn from this chapter:

  • The Lord “Jesus” answers to the same God; Our Heavenly Father. This Makes Jesus Christ our Brother.  (See Also: Psalms 45:6-7)

o   “Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre. Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows”

 

  • Jesus is the God of the “Old Testament” (See Hebrews 1:8-10)

 

  • Jesus is the Great “I AM”, also known as Jehovah. (See Also: Exodus 3:13-16)

o   “And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them? And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you. And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever…”

 

  • Jesus is the “WORD” that was with God, when He built the Universe. (See Also: Hebrews 1:10; John 1:1-3 and Psalms 33:6)

o   “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him [Jesus Christ] and without him was not anything made that was made”
