This is simply a personal praise I wanted to share regarding God's fidelity toward us. Among many prayers answered of late, of which it is too numerous to make mention of them all, I wanted to share this: I have, for the past three years at least, had a lipoma on my right shoulder.

2:16-17 For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham. Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.
Our present verse very clearly states that Jesus Christ is not an angel. He does not share the nature of angels, being created beings, nor has He associated Himself with them by taking on their likeness. Rather He came as a Man, born from Abraham, through Judah’s bloodline, of the House of David; thoroughly a Jew in the flesh, Romans 1:3; 9:5.

2:14-15 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; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
When Satan and his angels rebelled against God, God created a place separated from Him where He could consign the rebel angels forever. That place is the Lake of Fire, Matthew 25:41. Hell is merely a holding cell where the worst offending angels and the souls of unsaved men go to await the final sentencing at the Great White Throne, 2nd Peter 2:4; Revelation 20:14.
