The unchanging Lord
He also says to the Son, “In the beginning, Lord, you laid the foundation of the earth and made the heavens with your hands. They will perish, but you remain forever. They will wear out like old clothing. You will fold them up like a cloak and discard them like old clothing. But you are always the same; you will live forever.” And God never said to any of the angels, “Sit in the place of honor at my right hand until I humble your enemies, making them a footstool under your feet.” Therefore, angels are only servants—spirits sent to care for people who will inherit salvation.” Hebrews 1:10-14
From the text, the author of Hebrews describes God’s power that provides security and stability. God is unchanging for He is founded upon the rock and that those who trust Him will not be disappointed for their lives are securely fastened to Christ. Those who reject His offer of life will perish but those that honored and trusted Him will live forever. The Lord Jesus Christ seated at the right hand of the Father signifies authority. It is God who created everything and not angels. Everything around us keeps on changing but not God, for “you are always the same.” There will come a time where the old creation will be discarded and God will bring new creation. No matter how much effort we use to preserve the creation, God has the last say. While Jesus is seated at the throne, the angels are serving Him. “Therefore, angels are only servants—spirits sent to care for people who will inherit salvation” (Hebrews 1:14). Angels are privileged to serve God by taking care of those that belong to the Kingdom of God. God is our Sovereign Lord and He is Eternal and Unchangeable. This truth about the Lord is what the world needs to experience and Christians should realize the privilege given to them by God manifesting Him to this world. God dispatches His angels so that we who are called to shine His light in this world will not be hindered serving Him. Our victories over trials in life manifests the superiority of Christ for He is the one leading our lives. God’s message is clear; the Church and individual believers should not fear the world and what it will do to them. God will be with His children as well as the angels assigned to minister to every one of them. Christ is superior over anything and He is adequate enough to every need we have. We need to believe His promises and trust Him always no matter what will come our way.
