BRINGING MANY SONS UNTO GLORY
HEBREWS CHAPTER 2
Brothers, here Paul is teaching us about the glory, and power that Jesus has given to us. He is telling each of us who know Jesus that we who are saved are also his sons.
7 Thou madest him
a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and
didst set him over the works of thy hands: 8 Thou hast put
all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection
under him, he left nothing that
is not put under him. But now we see not yet
all things put under him. 9 But we see
Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death,
crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death
for every man.
Brothers we do not have to experience death because Jesus did that for us. He has already tasted death even for the lost if only they would believe upon the name of Jesus.
10 For it became him, for whom are all things, and by
whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the
captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
We the sons of God are made perfect through sufferings. Jesus has made us perfect when we walk as Christ walked. Jesus is our advocate to the Father when we repent of our sins as we fall short of the glory of God each day.
11 For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all
of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,
Jesus is not ashamed to call us brothers because we believers are sanctified as Jesus was sanctified.
12 Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the
midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.
We should declare the name of God unto our brothers in Jesus as we sing praise unto God.
13 And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I
and the children which God hath given me. 14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and
blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he
might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
Praise God! Through Jesus' death he destroyed the devil who had the power of death. Please see here that the devil does not have the power of death over you if you are saved. Jesus took that power from the devil by his death, burial, and resurrection.
15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their
lifetime subject to bondage.
We are not to be bound by the fear of death in this day. Remember the Psalm of David 'Oh death where is thy sting'.
16 For verily he took not on him the nature of angels;
but he took on him the seed of Abraham. 17 Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto
his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high
priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. 18 For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is
able to succour them that are tempted.
My brothers in Christ Jesus. See here that we are indeed the sons of God. Jesus lived as a man upon this earth. He was tempted just as we are tempted. But, he with stood all temptation so that he might live a perfect life as a man here on earth. We are saved by his cleansing blood because He was perfect, and He died for our sins. We are God's sons because of Jesus. Not that any of us can live a perfect life as did Jesus. But, because of his death we are made perfect.
He has made reconciliation for the sins of us His brothers.
God Bless you my brothers in Christ Jesus.
