God's Son Disclosure

Some people believe we are living in a kind of vacuum. They see this as an age in which God is not revealing Himself. They think this is an interval between the time when God spoke to mankind and the time future when He will again be a speaking God. Do you suppose they think God has become tired and is resting for a while?

No, the God who spoke in the past is speaking yet. He is speaking through the revelation of the risen and ascended Christ, the eternal Son. In all the history of God’s dealings with man, there has never been an utter blackout of God's voice.

We should be thankful for this inspired letter to the Hebrews. It indicates that what God is now saying to mankind through His Son far surpasses anything in the world’s great varieties of human philosophies. God's Word is not an appeal to the reasoning mind of man. It is a matter to be taken into the heart and soul.

Hebrews is a book and a message and a revelation. It stands high and lofty in its own strength because it is a fitting, forceful portrait of the eternal Son, the great High Priest of God forever and forever. I am sad because a large number of professing Christians who have tried to study the letter have finally given up. They have turned away with the very human comment, "This is too deep, too hard to understand."

Verse

In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe. Hebrews 1:1–2

Thought

God has spoken and is speaking to us through His Son. Are we listening? Are we seeing Christ as the radiance of God's glory? Or are we traveling through life with deaf ears and blind eyes to Him?

Prayer

Father, You have spoken and continue to speak to me through Your Son. O give me ears to hear and eyes to see and growing understanding of it all.
