“But of the Son, he says, ‘Your throne, O God, is forever and ever, the scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your kingdom.’”
We now hear the accolades for the Son. It is important for the Hebrew audience to understand how superior the Son is as a messenger than the prophets and angels were. Neither prophets nor angels were given thrones. They have no kingdom to rule over, and only the Son can claim uprightness as an absolute.
In this quote from the psalms, we also learn that the Son is God. It makes sense since His father is also God, but many miss it. Jesus was God before He became a man, and afterward, He went back to heaven to rule on His throne not as a man but as God. While on the earth, He gave God’s message to God’s people. God said of Him, “Hear you Him.”
Task for Today: Are you listening to the voice of God through Jesus His Son today, or do you treat the Bible as just another book? When you read the Bible today, make this statement prior to your reading, “This is the word of God.” After you are finished, make this statement, “I just read what God said to me.”
