Sermon No: 506-Hebrews 1 - Part 2 - Greater than the angels
SERMON TOPIC: Hebrews 1 - Part 2 - Greater than the angels
Speaker: Gavin Paynter
Date: 23 May 2010
Topic Groups: HEBREWS, TRINITY, BOOK STUDY
The JW's and SDA church claim that Jesus is the archangel Michael. But we’re given 7 facts about the person and work of Jesus to show His superiority to the angels.
(1) He has a superior name
(2) He is to be worshiped
(3) The Father addresses Him as God
(4) He is the creator
(5) He is immutable
(6) He is eternal
(7) He is seated at God’s right hand.
So we are privileged to have Jesus – the very ‘Son of God’ - as our covenant mediator and the one who delivered God’s final revelation to us.
However with greater privilege and knowledge comes greater responsibility - and the potential for greater judgment if we become desensitized and take our privileges for granted.
