Daily Plumer – Hebrews 1:7 – The Fitness of Angels to Be Our Ministers, and the Unfitness of Angels to Be Worshipped

“If the angels are spirits, they are well suited to the work of guarding the saints, passing about invisibly. And if they are a flame of fire, or as the lightning, they must be irresistible, and capable of moving with the greatest rapidity. But all worship of angels is unscriptural and wicked. It gives to a creature honor due to God only. It is truly deplorable to see men even in our day falling into the error against which God so solemnly warned us by the pen of Paul: ‘Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,’ Col. 2:8.”

(These hopefully daily remarks come from William Swan Plumer’s 1872 commentary on the epistle to the Hebrews.)

Ezra
