Almost everything has been subjected to us

The writer of the Book of Hebrews said that God did not put the world in subjection to angels, but that He has put the world in subjection to us, and the writer quotes the Old Testament to that effect,

“But one testified in a certain place, saying: ‘What is man that You are mindful of him…? You have made him a little lower than the angels…and set him over the works of Your hands. You have put all things in subjection under his feet.’ For in that He put all in subjection under him, He left nothing that is not put under him. But now we do not yet see all things put under him” (Hebrews 2:6-8).

Everything about this world has been subjected to man, except for one thing.

The writer continued and showed the exception, and how we are able to conquer that one thing,

“But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for everyone” (Hebrews 2:6-9).

Jesus became human like us, and He led the way in putting death in subjection to man by tasting of death Himself, and then rising from the dead!

Through Jesus we can now have everything about this world in subjection to us when we experience the bodily resurrection, which is yet to come.
