When we see all that Jesus did through His anointed ministry, it will give us a glimpse of what we can expect from Him as we become more and more acquainted with Him and His purpose towards us as individuals. It will also show us what we are capable of doing under the anointing that God pours into our lives through the Holy Spirit.
God is looking to build something in our lives that will last throughout eternity. The truths that come forth from the life and ministry of Jesus are strong foundational truths go into building the spiritual foundation that is necessary for God to build on.
- He came to show us the way to the Father.
- He came to reveal the love of the Father.
- He came to reveal the Father’s power and authority.
- He came to show us the true character of God.
The Book of Hebrews points out that in Christ there is far more than an Old Testament faith offered. There is a maturity, an experience with God, a full and complete salvation that through history had awaited Jesus' coming. It is this full salvation that the Book of Hebrews explains.
Creative Power Belongs To Jesus (through whom also He made the worlds)
Jesus is the one who spoke, and in speaking caused our whole vast universe to appear. Jesus is the One who acted to shape stars so distant that astronomers can only guess at their existence.
John 1:3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.
Redemptive Work Belongs To Jesus (when He had by Himself purged our sins).
As a man, Jesus walked our earth and knew our nature and weaknesses. But now, He has returned to "the right hand of the Majesty in heaven." His work has been accomplished through the Blood that was poured out for us. He has provided salvation to make us whole.
1 Peter 1:18-19 knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.
His Ministry as the Lamb of God was His most Significant Ministry.
Of all that Jesus came to do, His ministry as the Lamb of God would be His most significant contribution to the world. The Old Testament Prophet, Isaiah records a prophecy concerning the coming Messiah and what He would be sent to accomplish.
Because of the temptation on the part of the early church to think of Jesus as a "high" angel, the writer of Hebrews makes it clear at the outset that Jesus is superior to all angels.
