Meditation: “God spoke”. What great love and power from the divine? He came down in our sphere. Communicated to us through prophets and His Son so we may understand, know, and enjoy Him.We have His Word the Bible. Let His word have authority over my life. His word gives life and is divine. His wisdom will lead me to righteousness. I want to be careful in handling His word and be faithful to the truth. His word is the final say no matter what. Who is Jesus? Jesus is the Son of God. He is the first born from the dead. He is sovereign King. He sits at the right hand of the Father. He created all things, sustains all things, and owns all things. He is the King of kings. He is the Lord of Lords. Christ fulfilled what Adam did not. He lived perfect life. Loved God with all his heart, soul, mind, and strength. He fulfilled the roles of prophet, priest, and king. He brought God’s word. He intercedes for us. He rules. Jesus is God. God expressed himself in Christ. How awesome that by faith, we become fellow heirs with Christ! All that is Christ’s is ours! All because of what God has done and who he is. The Son lived, died, and resurrected for us. To have relationship as the Son and the Father had in the beginning. Not only do we have all that belongs to Christ. Best of all we get to have God! The Son bridged the gap so that we may have Him. Let our affections and desires be set on God the Father God the Son and God the Holy Spirit forever and ever. Verse 1 "many times" - πολυμερῶς which means "many parts" Some was narrative, poetry, law, prophecy, doctrinal, ethical, warning, encouragement. Goes from "picture book types", ceremonies, prophecies, and finally Christ. "many ways" - πολυτρόπως which means "many different ways/manners" Different ways God spoke was by vision, dreams, parable, type, or symbol. (Numbers 12:6,8; Ps. 89:19; Hebrews 3:5) Old Testament is not God's complete truth, but it is completely His his truth. Old Testament showed its incompleteness just as animal sacrifices showed couldn't remove guilt (Hebrews 10:1) Old Testament shows promise. New Testament showed fulfillment. Old Testament people trusted in a promise that was not yet fulfilled. (Hebrews 11:39) They foresaw what was going to happen but some did not fully understand (1 Peter 1:10-12) The men were totally controlled by the Spirit; all scripture is God speaking. Old Testament is confirmed, accurate, authoritative, and was delivered by Old Testament prophets (2 Peter 1:20,21) All scripture is inspired by God (2 Timothy 3:16) Old Testament was God's revelation preparing people for His coming. (Romans 15:8; Matthew 10:20) Verse 2 “but in these last days” I believe is a messianic reference. (Galatians 4:4;Ephesians 1:10; 1Peter 1:20; Acts 2:17) Scriptural promise last days Messiah would come. (Jeremiah 33:14-16;Micah 5:1-4; Zechariah 9:9,16) Old Testament shows fragments; Jesus is the full final God’s revelation. The New Testament gospels tell His story, epistles comment on it , Revelation is the culmination. Even the Samaritan Woman knew messiah unfold revelation of God (John 4:25) Jesus is the final and complete revelation. (Revelation 22:18-19) God the Father expressed Himself in Jesus Christ who is the Son of God. “the heir of all things” - Jesus Christ is the supreme first born, the one who earned his right to rule, the Sovereign King, the chief one, and rightful owner of all things. (Psalms 2:8; Matthew 21:38;Matthew28:18; Psalms 2:6-9; Psalms 89:27) From Psalms 89:27; firstborn refers to legal rights. Refers to position not time. First born title means “chief one”. Usually the oldest son gets the father’s estate (Genesis 49:3) This title shows might, strength, dignity, and power to describe the first born title. This title reveals right to rule. It is an authority word. First born refers to his sovereignty not birth. (Colossians 1:18) He is the first born from the dead. All those resurrected Jesus’ resurrection far above the greatest. Jesus is the most honored, dignified, highest, and powerful. All things created by Christ and for Christ (Romans 11:36; Colossians 1:16) Revelation 5:1-6 - reveals title deed to earth and all that is in it; the deed heir has right to take the earth; Roman law shows the will is sealed 7 times; and the seal is not to be broke until after the person whose will it was had died; Jesus is the Lamb who has the scroll in hand. He is the heir of the earth. He is the King of kings and Lord of lords. (Acts 2:36) When you have faith in the King, you become fellow heirs with the King (Romans 8:16-17). All that is Christ’s is ours. “through whom also He made the world” - Christ is the agent through whom God created the world (John 1:3; Romans 8:22) “World” - aiōnas means “the ages” Jesus not only created physical things of the world but he also created time, space, energy, and matter. He created everything that makes it function with no effort.
