Written around A.D. 63 by an unknown author, a letter titled “To The Hebrews” was meant to strengthen Messianic Jews who found themselves under attack by the enemy in the form of persecution against Christians, or anyone else who pledged their support of Jesus.
“1 God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets” (Hebrews 1:1)
In his introduction to the letter to the Hebrews, the author acknowledges how God used various ways to communicate in the past, from visions to dreams, a burning bush and stone tablets, and even a donkey! Since then, God has appointed men to gather 66 books and letters by which He reveals Himself in the way of the Bible, written by 40 authors in either Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek, from three different continents, over a 1,600 year period. Today, God’s word is translated in 531 languages, with 2,883 languages having at least some portion of the Bible.
“2 has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds;” (Hebrews 1:2)
Next, the author reveals how in the last days of Judaism, God came in the flesh in the way of Jesus, the Messiah whom He calls His Son, the heir of all things that were, that are and that will be for all time.
“3 who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, 4 having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.” (Hebrews 1:3-4)
Lastly, the author of the letter to the Hebrews declares Jesus the exact representation of God in the flesh, a man who fulfilled all prophecies including living a perfect, sinless life that was taken on the cross, where the Savior died for our sins, then Christ’s presence among men concluded with His ascension to Heaven where a seat was reserved for Him, at the right hand of the Father, a position of power, authority and power over all other angels, appointed messengers of the Creator. Let’s pray!
We thank you for your blessings in our lives,
We praise you Lord for the wisdom found through the Letter to the Hebrews,
We ask you Lord to inspire us to use these verses in our lives
As we continue to learn more about you through your word.
Lord we ask you to strengthen us each day as we endure through battles,
Allow us to praise and love each other through faith in you Jesus,
Shield us from evil through truth, the gospel, salvation and prayer,
Guide us to abide by your word as we spread your gospel to one and all
Becoming examples of faith through our character as we walk the narrow path.
God we pray that you will continue to bless us, to bless our lives and fill us with hope
We ask you Lord to guide our footsteps and lead us to the way everlasting,
Through faith in you Lord we seek salvation and a place with you in heaven
According to your ways, your everlasting wisdom and strength.
May your will be done
In our lives, for your life.
We thank you for your love and all you bless us with each day.
