FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:
TO ALL WHO REJECT OR DOUBT THE DEITY OF CHRIST, CONSIDER THIS
“And again, when He (the Father) bringeth in the First-begotten into the world, He saith, Let all the angels of God worship Him.”Heb. 1:7, KJV
“Let all the angels of God worship Him.’ These words are not found in our present Hebrew Bible, but are recorded in the Greek Septuagint [LXX].”
“This command to the angels is confirmatory of the Deity of Christ. As one of the Godhead, Christ was worshipped before He came to the earth. When He became man the question would naturally arise among the angels as to their right to worship Him; For if He was man, and ONLY man, He had NO right to receive worship.”
“The question therefore was this: Had Christ in becoming man LOST His Godhood? The Father Himself settled the question when He COMMANDED the angels to worship Christ. ONLY God may be worshipped (Rev. 22:8,9). THEREFORE CHRIST IS GOD.”
“God’s command to the angels as regards the Deity of Christ is FINAL. He was God BEFORE the incarnation; He was God DURING the incarnation; and He is God AFTER the incarnation.” Andreasen, The Book of Hebrews, pp. 66, 67.
