Jesus will hand over the Kingdom to God in the End (Hebrews 1:13-14)
"To which of the angels did God ever say, "Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet"? Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?" (Hebrews 1:13-14)
Part 3 of 3
"Then the end will come, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father after he has destroyed all dominion, authority and power. For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death. For he "has put everything under his feet." Now when it says that "everything" has been put under him, it is clear that this does not include God himself, who put everything under Christ. When he has done this, then the Son himself will be made subject to him who put everything under him, so that God may be all in all" (I Corinthians 15:24-28).
Christ was chosen before the foundation of the world to be its savior (I Peter 1:20). In the end He will hand it all back over to God, packaged, restored and redeemed. What a wonderful and awesome truth. The take away point for today is to evaluate whether or not you have confessed Christ as Lord. His superiority is evident in everything He is and has done. The time is short to make this confession and reap the benefits of it. We have this lifetime on earth to understand this amazing truth of God's grace and accept His free offer of life. Not only does this offer benefit us in the next life, but it makes this one worth living as well.
Tomorrow we look at Hebrews 2:1; Paying Attention to the Message of Jesus
