Although we can’t know everything on this side of heaven, God has been actively speaking to us and continually reaching out to us in very clear and powerful ways throughout the centuries.
God interrupts our lives – and our comfort-complacency zone of ignoring Him – in order to speak His powerful, eternal message of grace and truth to us. Through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, God’s Holy Son, our LORD has spoken the full message of His everlasting love and purifying forgiveness for each of us who will listen and believe!
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.
The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being,
sustaining all things by his powerful word.
After he had provided purification for sins,
he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.
God chose, out of His passionate, persistent, chasing-us-down love, to speak over and over again to His people through His prophets. Many times. In various ways. Yet, so many of those who heard did not – would not – choose to believe God’s message, nor honor what God required of them. But God’s love didn’t stop and neither did His message. It just got fuller, clearer and beyond our imagination.
God spoke His definitive and ultimate message of love, grace and truth through offering us eternal salvation through the sacrificial death and outrageous resurrection of our Lord Jesus!
Our choice is to listen and believe. And live.
