The Exalted Position of Man
Hebrews 2:5-8    

The insignificance of mankind: 

Jesus is the Lord of all creation, and everything is subject to His will and direction. We do not yet see that in full, as Satan and his hosts are still fighting. Although the war was won, fully and finally, on Calvary’s cross the enemy is still fighting a strong rearguard action. 

The warfare will not fully be over until Satan and those who follow him are finally cast into the Lake of Fire (Revelation 20:10-15. 1 Corinthians15:24-27). Then the end will come, when Jesus hands over the Kingdom to the Father. 

In that day at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2.

On the front of a Christmas card were pictures of many kings and dictators who have appeared throughout history: Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, Napoleon Bonaparte, Adolf Hitler, Vladimir Lenin. The caption on the front of the card said: "History is crowded with men who would be gods." Then on the inside were the words: "But only one God who would be man."

Verse 10 tells us that Jesus became a man to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. This doesn’t mean that He wasn’t always morally perfect, but He had not experienced what it was like to face the ordinary trials of human life.
