People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 1:14


Heb 1:14 Are they not all ministering spirits? The real office of the angels is indicated. It is to give service in working out the plans of God for the salvation of the elect. The passage does not teach that each heir of salvation has a guardian angel, but that the angels do service in working out the Divine plans in behalf of the saved. Sent forth to minister for them who shall inherit salvation? The work of angels can be learned in the Scriptures from the missions in which they are engaged. It is to aid in carrying out the plans of God for the government and salvation of our race. Under the rule of Christ they are his ministers to aid in the work of redeeming man. For examples of their work, see Ge 19:1-26 2Ki 19:35 Mt 18:10 Ac 5:19 10:1-8 12:23 Jude 1:6. Christ is Lord; they are servants.

Discussion for Hebrews 1

  • Freddieo
    Paul has given us a clear picture of Gods Kingdom!From creation unto the redemption of mankind.All the prophets ,apostles , and promises fulfilled through the word of his power.
    This confession is clear enough for all of us to understand!Remember that his kingdom will reign for ever.In the short time we have on earth, We are in a race, to witness these things and provoke others to believe.
  • Servant of God
    For the love of God, Jesus for his love of righteousness and hatred of iniquity found favor with God. If Jesus purged your sins, why are you still full of iniquity? God has always sent his elect to deal with an untoward people, to enlighten them, not to hand them the keys to heaven. You must earn it! Jesus sits where he sits as the 12 heads of the tribes of Israel praise God continually. Rev.
  • HILLIARD WALKER
    it is exciting to understand the word of God especially in the first two verses of Hebrews chapter 1. it clearly say that before God spoke His word [JESUS] to the prophets instructing them as to what he wanted. Now since Jesus has come as God's only BEGOTTEN son [the voice of God] God no longer instructs because Jesus who is the express image and word of God now speaks. Jesus is the Word of God.
  • Flames of Fire
    He made his angles spirits and his ministers flames of fire. Are your ministets truth tellers or fund raisers? Do you long for righteosness or pretend your already saved. Misinterpreters of scripure or learners precept by precept, a little here a little there. Do you feign rapture or deal with the Heart of the matter, without pretence. My experience with todays Christians. Dig it?

    emmanuel means god with us i could show you many other passages,colossions 2-9
    repent emmilyon and bow to the lordship of jesus christ for your salvation,you
    are a doubting thomas or maybe in some false religion or cult
  • Evangelist Andrew Kelly
    Amen, God and Father of Jesus turned the show over to his Son Jesus in Hebrews 1:1-4. What Christians of the hour get bewitched and stumble at is verse 8. They do not read verse 9. Verse 8 is the fulfilling of Isaiah 6:9. "His name shall be called the mighty God" NOT "My name" NOT the Almighty God and Father the mighty God all power was passed from Father to Son. Pronouns =hishehim VS Imemy
