God the Father's Supreme and Final Revelation to Humanity Part 6
Hebrews 1:9-10 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: KJV Note: MKJV = Modern King James Version
To think and to do that which is right and good always is not something that can be ascribed to human beings, for it not an attribute of ours, nor is it something that is attainable for any of us, but the Man (Christ Jesus) went about His 33.5 years on the earth thinking and doing nothing but good always and at all times and in all places, even when He was brutalized by His very own creation mankind. Of course, this is because He was and is not just Man, but the GodMan, so it is a part of who He is to be right always, therefore, the writer of Hebrews makes this next statement concerning Him, "Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even Thy God, hath anointed Thee with the oil of gladness above Thy fellows." (Hebrews 1:9) (KJV). The idea (that has come from the devil through human instruments) that our Lord, Master, and Savior Jesus Christ did sin while He was on the earth for 33.5 years (as some attest that He had children with Mary Magdalene and even more women) is laughable and ludicrous, for if He was a man just like me or any other man born into the earth, then He would not have been able to take on my sin and all your sin which would make His death meaningless and His resurrection from the dead a lie or a hoax, but the true lie or hoax comes from the devil because he wants humanity to reject Christ and remain in their sin for all eternity, yet millions have heard the Gospel message and have been redeemed (bought back from the devil) (Colossians 1:13-14). The writer of Hebrews has taken this text from the Psalms also, that being Pslams 45:7.
Our Lord Jesus Christ came to fulfill all righteousness for man because unrighteousness was brought into the human race by the first man Adam, then righteousness had to brought back to the human race by another Man, in this case Christ Jesus the GodMan, listen to what the Apostle Paul wrote to the Church @ Rome, "For if by one man's (Adam) offense death reigned by one, much more they who receive abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by One, Jesus Christ. Therefore as by one offense sentence came on all men to condemnation, even so by the righteousness of One the free gift came to all men to justification of life. For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of One shall many be made righteous." (Romans 5:17-19) (MKJV). Jesus Christ was not a begrudging or resentful Savior of the world, but He was joyful in doing the will of God the Father (Hebrews 12:2) and so He being Savior and God sits High above His fellows, meaning all the angels. Jesus Christ is above all His fellows because He is God who created all the angels (the obedient angels and the fallen angels), therefore, the writer of Hebrews says this concerning Him in the next verse quoting the writer of Psalms 102:25, "And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of Thine hands:" (Hebrews 1:10) (KJV). Before there was anything that is, there the Lord Jesus Christ was and had always been, for He is the One that said, 'Let there be light' and out from nothing came all that is now simply by His spoken words.
The Prophets Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Zechariah all speak of this truth, "My hand also has laid the foundation of the earth, and My right hand has stretched out the heavens. I called; they stood up together." (Isaiah 48:13) (MKJV); "Ah, Lord Jehovah! You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and stretched out arm. Nothing is too great for You." (Jeremiah 32:17) (MKJV); "The burden of the Word of Jehovah for Israel, says Jehovah, who stretches forth the heavens, and lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him." (Zechariah 12:1) (MKJV). The Son of God is the Creator God, the second person of the GodHead. Here is what Matthew Henry had to say of this verse, "The Lord Christ had the original right to govern the world, because He made the world in the beginning. His right, as Mediator, was by commission from the Father. His right, as God with the Father, was absolute, resulting from His creating power. This power He had before the beginning of the world, and He exerted it in giving a beginning and being to the world. He must therefore be no part of the world Himself, for then He must give Himself a beginning. He was pro pantoÌ„n - before all things, and by Him all things consist, Colossians 1:17. He was not only above all things in condition, but before all things in existence; and therefore must be God, and self-existent. He laid the foundations of the earth, did not only introduce new forms into pre-existent matter, but made out of nothing the foundations of the earth, the primordia rerum - the first principles of things; He not only founded the earth, but the heavens too are the work of His hands, both the habitation and the inhabitants, the hosts of heaven, the angels themselves; and therefore He must needs be infinitely superior to them."
If you do not know the Lord Jesus Christ and His amazing healing power, pray this from your heart to the Lord Jesus Christ (you speaking directly to Him), Dear Lord Jesus, I confess to You that I am a sinner and I need Your forgiveness. I believe You shed Your Blood and died for my sins. I believe that You rose from the dead proving that You alone are God. I repent of my sins. I want to turn from my sins. I ask You Dear Lord Jesus to come into my heart and take control of my life. I want You to be my Lord, Savior, and my God. Amen...
Sincerely in Christ,
