To the Son He Says, “Your Throne, O God, Endures Forever and Ever”
The purposes of this prayer are: Illumination, Holiness/Righteousness and Increased Faith.
Benevolent Father, the author of the epistle to the Hebrews deemed it necessary to establish within the minds of his readers with absolute certainty that Jesus is the Son of God, so he referred to passages from Psalms as irrefutable proof, writing that God the Father “to the Son he says, ‘Your throne, O God, endures forever and ever. You rule with a scepter of justice. You love justice and hate evil. Therefore, O God, your God has anointed you, pouring out the oil of joy on you more than on anyone else.’ He also says to the Son, ‘In the beginning, Lord, you laid the foundation of the earth and made the heavens with your hands. They will perish, but you remain forever. They will wear out like old clothing. You will fold them up like a cloak and discard them like old clothing. But you are always the same; you will live forever.’” Hebrews 1:8–12 (NLT). The Psalm passages rendered in verses 8–12 are closely paraphrased from Psalm 45:6–7 and Psalm 102:25–27. Gracious Lord, there are many other such prophecies of the first coming of your Son, Jesus, that also illuminate some of the aspects of his divine nature. Followers of Jesus accept with immense gratitude the veracity of each and every prophecy of the Messiah recorded in the Old Testament. Thank you, Heavenly Father, for your sacred Bible. The Bible contains all the words that we need to live by. Amen.
