Hebrews 1:13-14

13 But to which of the angels has He ever said: “Sit at My right hand, till I make Your enemies Your footstool”?

14 Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?

The quote in verse 13 is from Psalm 110:1. Psalm 110 is quoted more in the New Testament than any other Psalm.

Christ is sitting at the right hand of the Father now. He will return to judge the earth —  when His enemies are made His footstool.

Christ sits on God’s right hand — a position of authority. Angels have never sat there. They are fulfilling the duties of their office of service. When Christ was a servant, it was His own choice and initiative. The angels are sent.

who will inherit salvation (v.14) — Not believers during the age of grace — we are already complete in Him. It must be a reference to Jews who, because of the promise to their fathers (making them heirs) will pass from the tribulation into the kingdom.
