Ladies Bible Study Review, part 5…

Friday, April 13th, LBS Review, part 5…

I took a “side road” along side of the angel references to take a closer look at the description the Author uses of angels as “companions” (“fellows” in KJV). They are companions of our Lord for worship, for ministry, but, are not higher ranked – not now, because God, the Father, has “brought Him to the birth through resurrection.

He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high;

4 ¶ having become as much better than the angels, as He has inherited a more excellent name than they.

5 For to which of the angels did He ever say, “THOU ART MY SON, TODAY I HAVE BEGOTTEN THEE” (lit: “brought Thee to the birth”)? And again, “I WILL BE A FATHER TO HIM AND HE SHALL BE A SON TO ME”?

6 And when He again brings the first-born into the world, He says, “AND LET ALL THE ANGELS OF GOD WORSHIP HIM.”

7 And of the angels He says, “WHO MAKES HIS ANGELS WINDS, AND HIS MINISTERS A FLAME OF FIRE.”

8 But of the Son [He says], “THY THRONE, O GOD, IS FOREVER AND EVER, AND THE RIGHTEOUS SCEPTER IS THE SCEPTER OF HIS KINGDOM.

9 “THOU HAST LOVED RIGHTEOUSNESS AND HATED LAWLESSNESS; THEREFORE GOD, THY GOD, HATH ANOINTED THEE WITH THE OIL OF GLADNESS ABOVE THY COMPANIONS.

Companions” – “partners” – “sharers” – “participant” – Look at its use in Hebrews 3:14 For we have become partakers of Christ, if we hold fast the beginning of our assurance firm until the end;

This promise is to us with a BIG “IF” attached. Don’t let prepositions slip past your notice.

Here are the references in Hebrews – notice the importance of each:

Heb 1:9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, [even] thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

Heb 3:1 Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;

Heb 3:14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence(This word is “substance” in Heb. 11:1) stedfast unto the end;

Heb 6:4 For [it is] impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost,

Heb 12:8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.

Partakers of the heavenly calling,” “partakers of Christ,” and “partakers of the Holy Spirit” brings on chastisement to “sons.” If not, then the born ones are bastards – born out of wedlock.

The verb form of “partakers” is found in the New Testament like this:

Rom 12:13 Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.

Rom 15:27 It hath pleased them verily; and their debtors they are. For if the Gentiles have been made partakers of their spiritual things, their duty is also to minister unto them in carnal things.

Gal 6:6 Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.

Phil 4:15 Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only.

1Tim 5:22 Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men’s sins: keep thyself pure.

Heb 2:14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;

1Pet 4:13 But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.

2John 1:11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

There is too much in the above verses to study at this time. This is an example of using a computer program for study and then pausing to meditate upon the results of my searches. One thing, however, is that it would benefit us to make sure of what, whom, we “partake.”
