Hebrews 1 Jesus is not an angel

This morning as i was doing an assignment, last Sunday our Pastor asked us to read Hebrews. I started reading but I got stuck on chapter 1:1-2. (Im such a slacker)
Before going any further.. I looked up on the internet the purpose of this Epistle (wiki) "The primary purpose of the Letter to the Hebrews is to exhort Christians to persevere in the face of persecution. The central thought of the entire Epistle is the doctrine of the Person of Christ and his role as mediator between God and humanity."

Since i got stuck in chapter 1:1-2 I'l talk about it ... actually i will focus on verse 2.
 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.
1:1
Before GOD spoke the ff ways (to name a few):
1. Angels (eg. Genesis 19:11)
2. A donkey (Numbers 22:28-30)
3. Prophets (Moses, Jeremiah, Elijah, Isaiah,etc)
1:2a
Now GOD speaks to us through Jesus. (period) in lay mans term.. if we have a relationship with Jesus GOD speaks to us... thus the meaning of THROUGH..
  • God speaks to me
  • God puts His law in my heart
  • As i seek Him with all my heart I will find Him
Also GOD promised everything to the Son (Jesus) as an inheritance
What does this mean to us?? If everything is given to Jesus .... fill in your own revelation!

through the Son he created the universe...
  • Through Jesus He creates in me a clean heart
  • Through Jesus I love His creation and I will take care of it
  • Through His Son I will shepherd His flock as He Shepherds me
short and sweet.. deep and meaningful i love HIM! :) I go back to the purpose of this Epistle to encourage us saints to persevere in facing your trials, Jesus is our mediator. Hope you are encouraged~

If its really you.. command me to walk on water

Matthew 14 amplified version 26And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were terrified and said, It is a ghost! And they screamed out with fright. 27But instantly He spoke to them, saying, Take courage! I AM! Stop being afraid! 28And Peter answered Him, Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water. 29He said, Come! So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water, and he came toward Jesus. This passage is kinda funny, the disciples were afraid because they thought they saw a GHOST! I can truly relate :) I personally am afraid of the thought of vampires.. Jesus reassures them that its HIM.. God not a GHOST (hihi)Peter reacted in my opinion on the basis of relationship.. "if its you command me" wow! talk about facing your fears.. its like saying if your not a ghost i want to see u face to face .. Peter did not change the world, preached and asked for forgiveness.. or did anything religous.. He just wanted to know and be with Jesus in the state o
