Hebrews 1:5-8 (NKJV)
5 For to which of the angels did He ever say:
... “ You are My Son,
... Today I have begotten You”?
And again:
... “ I will be to Him a Father,
... And He shall be to Me a Son”?
6 But when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says:
... “ Let all the angels of God worship Him.”
7 And of the angels He says:
... “ Who makes His angels spirits
... And His ministers a flame of fire.”
8 But to the Son He says:
... “ Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
... A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
... 9 You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness;
... Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
... With the oil of gladness more than Your companions.”

I was so marvelled with Heb 1:8, But to the Son He says: “ Your throne, O God, is forever and ever. Inadvertently, it is God who addressed God. It will be odd to address oneself and He is clearly speaking to Jesus. So isn't it amazing that He is calling Jesus, God, affirming the divinity of Jesus Christ, our Lord.

One thing though I need to find out: why did the author argue about the Lordship of Jesus over the angels? Why did he compare Jesus with the angels?
