Discussion for Hebrews 13:8

  • Doctor Robert D Porter, Senior for verse 8
    Hebrew 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. Yes, this is self explanatory however, I have studied this passage of scripture for quite some time and could not come close to gather enough data to sufficiently cover each aspects of the reference of yesterday, today and forever. The writer was great in covering the capacity of the person, second part of the Godhead Christ Jesus. Therefore, to define what part of Jesus actually remain the same as far as his past is concern he was both human and God at the same time. One may say that he is still both human and God today as he live in the life of the believer. However, this does not seem to that in consideration who was Christ prior to the making of mankind and who will he be when mankind enters into new body in the new earth. As best as I can understand, I can only surmise that things are not what they seem to be with the limited knowledge that is available to in our thinking ability today. My conclusion at best is, Christ Jesus in essence is a spirit and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. Therefore, the spirit regardless of place and purpose, is the same spirit in it 's essence. This is shown where the evil spirits that was in the man that had the legend of spirit was in essence the same spirits that was in the swine 's of that reign.

    That is to say,Jesus Christ is our Eternal Lord and God and Saviour.His essence,Power and Authority remain the same even before the beginning of all things,both those in Heaven and on earth and beneath the earth or the sea.Though all things shall pass but He is Everlasting God. He is known as the Mighty God and Everlasting Father(Isaiah 9:6),meaning He ever existed and created all things in His power (John 1:1-3, Colossians 1:16). He is the Sustainer of all things (Colossians 1:17),without Him nothing will exist ,including dark spirits. He is the Saviour of the world(Redeemer). He is the only Loving God who laid His life down to save all men from the death penalty of their sins when everybody had gone astray(Isaiah 53:4-6)-Behold,the Lamb of God Who takes away the sin of the world! (John 1:29). He is the Supreme Judge for all humans(Matthew 25:31-46),and the Sovereign Lord Who is to come and reward the good deeds of men,and punish men for their wickedness(Revelation 22:12-13).
