8: But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. 9: Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. 10: And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands: 11: They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment; 12: And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail. 13: But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? 14: Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
Here we have a statement of the deity of Christ. God says to the Son – Christ, thy throne O God is for ever and ever, a rule of righteousness is the rule of thy kingdom. When Christ establishes his kingdom it will be a rule of righteousness. God says of him that, you love righteousness and hate crookedness. Therefore God your God has anointed you with the oil of gladness more than your brethren. And you Lord (Christ) have laid the foundation of the earth and all the universe is the work of your hands. The universe will cease but you will remain. The Universe will become old and like a coat you will roll it up. It will be changed but you will be the same you will continue for ever. To which of the angels did God say at anytime Sit on my right hand until l make all your enemies a place of rest for your feet. Aren’t all these angels servant-spirit sent into the world to serve those who are saved?
