Daily Plumer – Hebrews 1:1-7 – Proofs of the Divinity of Jesus Christ – No. 6 – He Governs the World

“The divinity of the Son is also manifest F. From his governing the world. He is the author of providence, not to the exclusion of the Father or of the Spirit, but in concurrence with the first and third persons of the Trinity. Nor is it labor, nor does it cost him any effort to preserve and control all things, for he does it by the word of his power, v. 3. The term here used is not that rendered Word in John 1:1, but a term meaning command or any word spoken. Here the power is in the word. Patterson: ‘Does he sustain the weight, and carry on the government of all things? With what confidence should the believer depend upon his arm!’ Nothing is so great as to escape his grasp; nothing is so small as to elude his notice.”

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