The Pastor's Pen


Why You Cannot Ignore the Son   

       Here is one reason why we need to listen to what God has said through His Son.  The Son is the heir of everything.  All things are at His disposal.  This means that He has the power to make good on everything He has ever said because all things are literally in His hands, under His control. 

And notice the verse says that this is by the Father’s appointment!  All authority in heaven and in earth has been given to Him (cf. Matthew 28:18).  In the end, the only thing over which the Son will not have the authority is the Father Himself (cf. 1 Corinthians 15:28).  The will of the Father is that all men honor the Son as they honor the Father (cf. John 5:23).  The Father has given His Son a name that is above every name (cf. Philippians 2:9).  The Son is preeminent above all things in heaven and in earth (cf. Colossians 1:18).  You must listen to the Father-appointed, Father-honored heir of all things if you are to know the Father.  There is no other way (cf. John 14:6).
