Hebrews 1:4-6

HEBREWS 1:4-6 (Multiple versions:King James, NIV, American Standard & New Living translation)

Jesus - better than the angels
Inherited a more excellent name
For which of the angels said:
he at any time this is my son, this day I have begotten thee?
I will be to him a father & he shall be to me a son?
And when he bringeth the 1st begotten into the world and let all the angels of God worship him

Angels are certainly glorious beings and are messengers of the most high God but they are not to be worshiped. We are to worship God and God alone. In this passage we read that God the Father has called Jesus his only begotten son. God the father had declared that the angels of God are to worship Jesus.

Even today people will seek and worship angels. They worship the created rather than the creator. We are not called to worship angles. We were created to worship God. Jesus is to be the object of our worship. Be wary of any person, any thing and yes even angels who blind you into idolizing & worshiping them rather than God Almighty. Angels of God will tell you clearly do not bow to nor worship them. Any angel that seeks your worship is not of God. Any messenger that seeks your worship is not of God. Be careful what creeps into your life, ministry and church.
God said that his angels are to worship Jesus any angel or messenger who disobeys is a rebellious angel and not of God.

Col 2:18
