And He Shall Reign Forever and Ever

Pastor Jay continues the series on Hebrews with this week’s sermon “And He Shall Reign Forever and Ever” from Hebrews 2:5-9.

Hebrews 2:5-9 (ESV)

Jesus Made Fully Human

It is not to angels that he has subjected the world to come, about which we are speaking. But there is a place where someone has testified: “What is mankind that you are mindful of them, a son of man that you care for him? You made them a little lower than the angels; you crowned them with glory and honor and put everything under their feet.” In putting everything under them, God left nothing that is not subject to them. Yet at present we do not see everything subject to them. But we do see Jesus, who was made lower than the angels for a little while, now crowned with glory and honor because he suffered death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone.

Jesus Christ reigns.

  • Angels do not reign.
  • Adam should have reigned.
  • Jesus came as the second Adam to reclaim that reign.
