Message of the Day: Jesus is the Last and the Greatest Messenger from God
“God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds…” (Hebrews 1:1-2, NKJV)
In Old Testament times God spoke to people through Israelite prophets, but now he speaks more directly, for he speaks through his Son. In addition, his revelation is much clearer, for Jesus Christ is the exact expression of the divine nature. All things were created by him, are controlled by him, and one day will return to him as his rightful possession.
Jesus is superior or better than the prophets because he is the son of God, he is appointed heir of all things, he is the Creator, the exact representation of God, the sustainer of the world, the purifier of sins, and the exalted one.
Jesus is God’s last and best word to humanity. This shows his claims to our reverence as sent from God – the last and greatest of the messengers which God has sent to man.
