What Does Hebrews 1:6 Mean?

And when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says, "AND LET ALL THE ANGELS OF GOD WORSHIP HIM."

Hebrews 1:6(NASB)

Verse Thoughts

Christ is the eternal Son of God Who was born into the human race at Bethlehem, but there is one very special day, one unique moment in time, when God was able to announce, "You are My Son, this day have I begotten Thee."

The eternal Son of the Father was made a little lower than the angels for a season, but having been born into such humble surroundings, lived a life of loving and obedient submission to the Father, and having purged our sins at Calvary's cruel Cross, the Lord Jesus became the firstborn from the dead at His Resurrection. As a result, He was permitted to ascend into heaven and sit down at the right hand at the Majesty on High, having become so much better than the angels.

Christ's redemptive work on the Cross and glorious Resurrection from the dead, disarmed the angelic rulers and authorities and made a public display of them, for by His sacrificial death and glorious Resurrection, He triumphed over them and was given a more excellent name, when He sat down at the right hand of the Father, in the heaven of heavens.

Today, there is a man in heaven sitting on the throne of the Father, and to Him has been given all might, majesty, dominion, and power for ever and ever.

His work of redemption having been completed, Christ Jesus became the federal Head of a new creation of humanity. Old things have passed away. Behold! All things have been made new. And so on one very special day, one unique moment in time and eternity, God was able to announce, "Let all God's angels worship Him," for Christ is all in all.

My Prayer

Heavenly Father, thank You that You chose to step into time and become part of Your own creation for a season so that fallen, condemned humanity might be redeemed from the curse of sin and death. You alone are worthy of all honour and glory, might, majesty, dominion, praise, and worship. May I join my voice with the angels of heaven and together may we worship You forever and ever. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
