Jesus said “all things have been handed over to Me by My Father” (Matthew 11:27). Indeed, the Father designated the Son as “heir of all things” (Hebrews 1:1-2).
The reason that all things were being transferred from the Father to the Son was that the Father was becoming the Son (Matthew 1:23). God was a quarterback who could throw a football so far that only He could run fast enough to catch it. Thus, He gave up His life as God and became a man. Through His resurrection from the dead He returned to heavenly status and eventually to His role of God and Father (Isaiah 9:6). This occurred at what is called the Second Coming of Christ.
Thus, all things were transferred from the Father to the Son…and then the Son became the Father – the role which had belonged to Him from the beginning.
