Restoration to Come

Rebellion and sin have left a monstrous blight upon the earth that God created. But we who have come to trust this Creator God and the written revelation He has left for us are convinced of two truths. One, heaven and earth are a unity, designed and created by the one God. Two, this sovereign God did not make the universe to be an everlasting contradiction; a day of restoration lies ahead.

When we approach the letter to the Hebrews, we discover a revealed truth within the writer's insistence that God has appointed Jesus, the eternal Son, "through whom he made the universe," as "heir of all things" (1:2).

With that expression, the writer is asking us to stretch our minds and expand our understanding. See it again: God has appointed His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, the One who made the worlds in space, to be the eternal heir of "all things."

Verse

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 1:2

Thought

Ahead lies the future restoration of all creation from the destructive consequences of sin. We shall come to a fuller understanding of heaven and earth-—a new heaven and a new earth (Rev. 21:1). The Eternal Heir of all things shall bring it to pass.

Prayer

Someday, Lord, I will understand all that is involved in You being heir of all things.
