“The Son Is Greater Than the Angels for God never said to any angel what he said to Jesus: “You are my Son. Today I have become your Father.” God also said, “I will be his Father, and he will be my Son.” And when he brought his supreme Son into the world, God said, “Let all of God’s angels worship him.” Hebrews 1:5-6
Hebrews is telling us and the Jews that this letter was written to advise that Jesus is greater than anything. Jesus is God. He is the creator and He created the angels. Jesus came to earth with the full blessing and full authority of God. God put His stamp of approval on Jesus and everything Jesus said and did was initiated, backed up and approved by God. What a marvelous thing! “But even as he spoke, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my dearly loved Son, who brings me great joy. Listen to him.” (Matthew 17:5) No wonder that God announced Jesus’ birth with a host of heavenly angels; it was one of the most significant events in the history of humanity. Heaven celebrated this while mankind slept through the night. God has never placed such glory and honor on an angel but He has on Jesus because Jesus is the Savior. What he did for mankind far exceeds anything else ever done. What a wonderful truth to soak in and understand. Jesus, the savior, was sent by God and now resides at His right hand because His work in finished. Now He is both glorified and resurrected and offers hope and salvation to everyone that calls on His name. “One day when the crowds were being baptized, Jesus himself was baptized. As he was praying, the heavens opened, and the Holy Spirit, in bodily form, descended on him like a dove. And a voice from heaven said, “You are my dearly loved Son, and you bring me great joy.” (Luke 3:21-22) God never said this about the angels.
