THE BOOK OF HEBREWS CHAPTER 3:6-19 (7 of 24)
6 But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house
are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the
rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.
Moses was a servant of the household of God, but
Christ is Son over the house because it is His
possession. Christ is not in the house, He's over the

Spirit is God as well be ...
