Sermon
1. Lower than angels
By Pastor Chris Martin     Oct 26, 2014
Heb 2:9

 

Lower Than Angels

Hebrews 2:5-18

 

Heb. 2:5

Angels are not in charge

Reference to the future age when Jesus will return and reign on earth for 1000 years. Jesus will be ruling, not the angels. We will rule with Jesus (Rev. 20:6)

Heb. 2:6-9 references Psalm 8

Heb. 2:6

We are nothing as people, but God takes notice of us.

God became low, a man, to redeem us.

Heb. 2:7

Psalmist references mankind, but the author of Hebrews sees it as Messianic and pointing to Jesus.

For a little while, Jesus was lower than angels in that he come from heaven to earth to redeem us.

Heb. 2:8

Now everything is under his feet (Gen. 3:15, Phil. 2:9)

All is subjected to Jesus; we just don't see it yet.

Heb. 2:9

BUT we DO see Jesus

He made himself low to die and redeem us to himself.

This gift is for everyone!

Heb. 2:10-16

He is captain of our salvation.

Jesus is not ashamed to call us brother -- it's a deep, intimate relationship.

References to Ps. 22 and Is. 8

Jesus has destroyed the devil and we shouldn't fear him.

We can be free of the fear of death. (Gal. 2)

Heb. 2:17

Christ became like us in all ways

He serves as our high priest. We can go straight to him rather than through a person or saints.

He is our propitiation (satisfaction of the wrath of God on sin). 1 John 2

Heb. 2:18

Jesus was also tempted. He understands our needs and lives.

By Pastor Chris Martin     Oct 05, 2014
Heb 1:1-3

1God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,

2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

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 on the right hand of the Majesty on high:

By Pastor Chris Martin     Sep 28, 2014
Hab 3: 17 - 19

17 Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls:

18 Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation.

19 The Lord God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds' feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places. To the chief singer on my stringed instruments.
