“But to the Son He says: “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom. You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You with the oil of gladness more than Your companions.” Hebrews 1:8–9
In this passage you find one of the most amazing and important statements in all of the Bible: Jesus is God! There are so many religions and people, who believe He was just a man, or just a prophet of God, or just a good teacher. They like to quote His teachings but do not believe His claims. Jesus said, “I and the Father are one” (John 10:30). Throughout his life and ministry Jesus claimed to be equal with God. In fact the Bible teaches, “For this reason therefore the Jews were seeking to kill Him, because He not only was breaking the Sabbath, but also calling God His own Father, making Himself equal with God” (John 5:18). Jesus made it very clear in His lifetime and teaching that He was God. Now, the amazing part of this verse is the Father says to the Son, “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever”. God the Father acknowledges God the Son. This verse gives one of the most powerful and clear proofs to what the Bible teaches. Jesus is no less than God, and it comes straight from the Father.
So, what does all this mean for us today? It means His promises are true! Jesus is who He said He is and He can do what He said He can do. You can live in confidence today that God is on His throne and His plans and purposes will be fulfilled. No need to worry and no need to fear because His throne is forever and ever!
