Epistle to the Hebrews

Epistle to the Hebrews

He also says,“In the beginning, Lord, you laid the foundations of the earth,and the heavens are the work of your hands.They will perish, but you remain;they will all wear out like a garment. You will roll them up like a robe; like a garment they will be changed. But you remain the same,and your years will never end.” .” (Hebrews 1:10-12)

God again speaks to the Son and declares that this Son is the Creator.
The author is now reinforcing his arguments by iterating the Son’s work in the creation (as mentioned in v2).

Is not it the Son who told Job :

Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell me, if you know so much. Who determined its dimensions and stretched out the surveying line? What supports its foundations,and who laid its cornerstone” Job 38

On Judgement day, the earth and heavens will flee before Him. It’s difficult to imagine how spectacular this will be! Ah how limited is my human mind to comprehend His Greatness! Before the Son of God,this big earth is just a speck of dust which is looking for a place to hide! Yet this speck of dust is the work of His hands.

And I saw a great white throne and the one sitting on it. The earth and sky fled from his presence, but they found no place to hide. I saw the dead, both great and small, standing before God’s throne. And the books were opened, including the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to what they had done, as recorded in the books.” Revelation 20:11

In the beginning the Word already existed.The Word was with God,and the Word was God.He existed in the beginning with God.God created everything through him,and nothing was created except through him. The Word gave life to everything that was created,and his life brought light to everyone.”

His Kingdom endures forever and does not decay because righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne. God the One and only does not change. He is faithful, righteous and perfect. Only Him can be trusted 100%. My soul and mind cannot trust any mortal being with such assurance. But this Son of God deserves my trust. I’m convinced that what He asks me to do is the best and only thing to do. I love and trust His counsels. Man has weaknesses and are imperfect but not Him. With time people change attitude and convictions but not Jesus Christ.

His years never end because He is existence. For in Him we live, move and have our being (Acts 17:28). We live by time but not God. When a new heaven will be made, time will cease to exist because eternity cannot be measured.
