The writer of the book of Hebrews opens by telling the reader that God spoke long ago to man through the prophets and fathers many times and in many different ways. He goes on to proclaim that, "...in these last days God has spoken to us in His Son." God's final and perfect word to us...to all of humanity...was and is Jesus! He is God in human form and flesh, and the perfect representation of God the Father. In fact, Jesus said that, "If you have seen Me, you have seen the father." God in His eternal plan and unfathomable wisdom chose to communicate His great love to us through His final perfect word...JESUS. What more could He say? What more could He give? Jesus!!! Glory to the newborn King!
One of my favorite Bible verses for Christmas is Revelation 4:11, as it reminds me that this babe in the manger is truly the everlasting God Who was...from before eternity began our sacrifice that would make things right between us and the Father; Who is...at the right hand of God making intercession for us, while preparing a place for us to spend with Him forevermore; and Who is to come...And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, "KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS."
