Hebrews 1:6 (NIV) ~ And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says, “Let all God’s angels worship him.”

In the NIV translation, there is a footnote that cross references this verse with Deuteronomy 32:43 (NIV), “Rejoice, O nations, with his people and let all God’s angels worship him.”

Furthermore, the NKJV has this wonderful wording to the same verse, “Rejoice, O Gentiles with His people.”

This is taken from the song of Moses which prophetically spoke of the birth of Jesus.

We see the fulfillment of this verse in a field near Bethlehem where the Bible says in Luke 2:13 to 14 (NIV), “Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.’”

Here you have God giving a message through the lips of Moses not only to His people, not only to Gentile believers, but also to the world. In this verse, God gives a reason to rejoice for Salvation will come into the world through His Son Jesus Christ who is the Savior of the world.

Even at the birth of Jesus there was great rejoicing as all of God’s angels worshipped Christ the Lord.

Let all God’s angles worship Him, let all God’s angels and mankind alike, bow before Jesus and worship Him.

Look again at the verses in Luke 2:13 to 14 (NIV), “Suddenly a great company of heavenly hosts appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.’”

The Christmas Carol, “O Come All Ye Faithful,” beautifully describes how the angels worshipped Jesus on the day the Savior of the world, who is Christ the Lord, was born.

Sing choirs of angels, sing in exaltation,
Sing all ye citizens of heaven above,
Glory to God in the highest.

My friend, if God says in Hebrews 1:6 (NIV), “And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says, ‘Let all God’s angels worship him,’” then surely at this festive time let all His people, all Gentiles and every nation under heaven and on Earth, lift up their voices and rejoice and worship Him, for unto us a Savior has been born, who is Christ the Lord.

God bless you my friend, Pastor Matthew.
