The Supremacy of God’s Son
Hebrews 1 Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. 3 He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, 4 having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.

There is slant here, but my friend, Glenn Stanton, makes good points about who God is and the holiness, justice, purity, and yes, wrath, displayed by the God-man, Jesus.
The Christian church year marries the Christmas season with looking forward to the end of the world. It’s not just cuddly baby Jesus, but Jesus the eternal judge. And it makes sense. Continue reading
My thoughts on Hebrews 10:19-25.
In view of what Jesus Christ did in His earthly life for us, let’s reflect and respond.
We who were bought and paid for with a price, the blood of Jesus Christ, are now invited into holy places (to know Him and have Him teach us about holy things and ourselves).
He became the Greatest Highest Priest of all time when He offered Himself for us. Through His offering the veil is lifted, the veil was torn so we may enter and see His glory and worship Him for who He is and what He’s done for the world and for us.
We draw near Him in full assurance of faith with our hearts made clean by the sprinkling of His blood. Our evil conscience has been cleansed and liberated. We can approach the holy and marvel that we are attracted to Him and that we are worthy to have these thoughts and desires.
We hold fast, never laying down nor forgetting our confession to the truth of Christ’s work and redemption. Fear not and no not waver. Why? He who promised is faithful to His people to fulfill all that He promised in His Covenant with us and otherwise. He is the faithful, Covenant-keeping God. Therefore, we consider how to motivate others to also be faithful to Him, to love Him and serve Him and others.
Don’t neglect the Community and the coming together in person like some do. Encourage one another and do it more vigorously as Evil is hunting, as you see the end coming and hope in the promise of Jesus’ return.
Cease the Day!
