Jesus Christ Is God’s Son, The Living Breathing WORD Of God Who Was Made Flesh To Walk Among Us And Who Is Greater Than the Angels.

Jesus Christ Is God’s Son

1 Long ago God spoke many times and in many ways to our ancestors through the prophets. 2 And now in these final days, he has spoken to us through his Son. God promised everything to the Son as an inheritance, 👉🏼 and through the Son he created the universe ðŸ‘ˆ (reference: John 1). 3 The Son radiates God’s own glory and expresses the very character of God, and he sustains everything by the mighty power of his command. When he had cleansed us from our sins, he sat down in the place of honor at the right hand of the majestic God in heaven.
3 AMPLIFIED VERSION: He is the sole expression of the glory of God [the Light-being, the out-raying or radiance of the divine], and He is the perfect imprint and very image of [God’s] nature, upholding and maintaining and guiding and propelling the universe by His mighty word of power. When He had by offering Himself accomplished our cleansing of sins and riddance of guilt, He sat down at the right hand of the divine Majesty on high,
4 This shows that the Son is far greater than the angels, just as the name God gave him is greater than their names.

The Son Is Greater Than the Angels

5 For God never said to any angel what he said to Jesus:

“You are my Son. Today I have become your Father.”

God also said,
“I will be his Father, and he will be my Son.”

6 And when he brought his supreme Son into the world, God said,

“Let all of God’s angels worship him.”

7 Regarding the angels, he says,
“He sends his angels like the winds, his servants like flames of fire.”

8 But to the Son he says,
“Your throne, O God, endures forever and ever. You rule with a scepter of justice. 9 You love justice and hate evil. Therefore, O God, your God has anointed you, pouring out the oil of joy on you more than on anyone else.”

10 He also says to the Son,

“In the beginning, Lord, you laid the foundation of the earth and made the heavens with your hands. 11 They will perish, but you remain forever. They will wear out like old clothing. 12 You will fold them up like a cloak and discard them like old clothing. But you are always the same; you will live forever.”

13 And God never said to any of the angels,
“Sit in the place of honor at my right hand until I humble your enemies, making them a footstool under your feet.”

14 Therefore, angels are only servants—spirits sent to care for people who will inherit salvation.
(King James Version)

1 In the beginning (of time) WAS THE WORD, and the Word WAS WITH God, and the Word WAS God. 👈

2 The same was in the beginning with God.

3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

4 In him was LIFE; and the LIFE was the LIGHT of men.

5 And the LIGHT SHINETH in darkness; and the darkness comprehended IT NOT.

6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.

7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the LIGHT, that all men through him might believe.

8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that LIGHT.

9 That was the TRUE LIGHT, which lighteth EVERY man that cometh into the world.

10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him NOT.

11 He came unto his own, and HIS OWN received him NOT.

12 But as many as received him, to them gave he POWER to become the sons/daughters of God, even to them that BELIEVE on his name:

13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, BUT OF God.

14 And the WORD was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten son of the Father,) full of GRACE and TRUTH.

15 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.

16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.

17 For the LAW was given by Moses, but GRACE and TRUTH CAME by Jesus Christ.

18 No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
(New International Version)

The WORD of Life

1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of LIFE. 2 The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. 3 We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. 4 We write this to make our joy complete.

Walking in the LIGHT

5 This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is LIGHT; in him there is NO darkness at all. 6 If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the TRUTH. 7 But if we walk in the LIGHT, as he is in the LIGHT, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, PURIFIES us from all sin.

8 If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will FORGIVE us our sins and PURIFY us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word has no place in our lives.
