Hebrews 1:10-12 (NKJV) 10 And: “You, Lord, in the beginning laid the foundation of the earth, And the heavens are the work of Your hands. 11 They will perish, but You remain; And they will all grow old like a garment; 12 Like a cloak You will fold them up, And they will be changed. But You are the same, And Your years will not fail.”

These verses here in Hebrews are quoted from Psalm 102:25-27. In these verses we are told that Jesus Christ is the Creator. Yes, because Jesus is God the Son, the Second Person of the Triune Godhead, Elohim. “In the beginning Elohim created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1 NKJV). Angels are created beings; our Lord is the Creator. Psalm 102 is a Messianic psalm. We know this to be true because the Holy Spirit of God reveals it to us in the first chapter of Hebrews. Psalm 102 is Jesus’ prayer of trouble and sorrow. This is God the Son in the garden of Gethsemane. It is Christ’s humiliation before His exaltation. You see, my friends, prophecy made it clear that the Son of God was to die on a cross. Psalm 22 gives us a picture of the crucifixion of Christ. The Cross was an alter on which Jesus shed His blood, paying the penalty for our sins. For God the Father said, “For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul.’” (Leviticus 17:11 NKJV). Jesus shed His blood on the Cross “to make atonement for your souls.” How could it be, that Jesus the Son of God would die for us? Jesus told Nicodemus the reason why; “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” (John 3:14-17 NKJV). This is the reason why Jesus prayed in the garden to be delivered from death so that He could make it to the Cross. And we are told that the Father heard His prayer because of His godly fear. In His humanity, Jesus feared but He trusted in the Father to deliver Him.

God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
