The Supremacy of Jesus

Hebrews 1:1-8 reads,

God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He 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 at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.  For to which of the angels did He ever say:  "You are My Son, Today I have begotten You"?  And again:  "I will be to Him a Father, And He shall be to Me a Son"?  But when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says: "Let all the angels of God worship Him."  And of the angels He says: "Who makes His angels spirits And His ministers a flame of fire."  But to the Son He says:  "Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom."

These eight verses tell us that Jesus is supreme, above any angel, because: 

  • God speaks to us through His Son. 
  • Jesus is the heir of all things. 
  • God made all things through Jesus. 
  • Jesus is the express image of God the Father. 
  • He upholds all things with the word of His power. 
  • He purged our sins. 
  • Jesus is the Son of God, not a servant as are the angels. 
  • He is worthy of our worship. 
  • Jesus is God Himself. 

That is the supremacy of Jesus!
