Hebrew Bible (Chapter 1)
The book Hebrews was written by Saint Paul, the great bible expositor, he was trying to show the Hebrews that the old testament is a shadow or a type of the new testament. Paul was a bible teacher well schooled he was taught under the great Gamaliel which was one of the greatest teachers of his day.
Now Let us look at Hebrews 1 this Chapter is exalting Jesus and separating him from Angels, Prophets etc.
God who in sundry times and divers manners speak in time past unto the fathers by the prophets.
God in sundry times "way back" spoke to the fathers by the prophets. That is how he gave his word through his prophet.
God will never leave his people without his word, so he will always send his people a prophet "the mouth piece of God," Isaiah, Jeremiah, Samuel etc.
Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds.
In these last days God has spoken to us by his son Jesus Christ. Do you think we will have a prophet in these last days? Absolutely without a doubt. He will speak to his people in the last days by the spirit of Jesus Christ also the prophets of the old day was the spirit of Jesus Christ.
It was the spirit of Jesus in Moses and all the old testament was Jesus in spirit form foreshadowing the cross. Moses was a leader, law-giver, intercessor, priest. All that he was foreshadowed Christ Jesus.
Look at Joseph, he was loved of his father, hated of his brethren, throwed into a ditch, in his persecution two were with him, the butler and butcher, the butler life was saved and the butcher lost his life. A perfect type of Christ on the cross with two thieves, when Joseph was lifted out, he was given a new name and sat on the right hand of Pharaoh the super power of the world in that time. No man could not see Pharaoh except they pass through Joseph, when Joseph left the thrown men went out before him, sounding their trumpet saying "bow your knees the mighty Joseph is coming."
Jesus also is at the right hand "power" of God and know man cometh to God except first coming through Jesus Christ "I am the way the truth and the life " and when Jesus comes a trumpet shall sound and every knees shall bow, every tongue shall confess that he is Lord almighty.
Even David, was a rejected King by his own people, dethroned by them and went up Mount Olive he look back and wept. 800 Years after, the son of David King of Jerusalem, set on hill and wept he was rejected.
That was the spirit in Moses, Joseph and David all a foreshadow of the cross, but now in this last days through his son "Holy Ghost."
And nowadays all these so-called men of God only want money, cars, big house, best clothes etc. They really don't have a burning desire to save souls, they want to preach about giving money and don't want God to use them the way he wishes to use them.
What a condition are we in, in this day when God is speaking to us by his son the unadulterated word, "pure."
Whom he has appointed heirs of all things by whom also he made the worlds.
An appointment Jesus was heir of all things by his father even the devil knowed that when God said "because you came from the dust, thus you shall return and the woman seed shall bruise the serpent head, Satan knew about the promise seed.
"Heirs of all things by whom also he made the worlds."
Christ made the worlds, yes he certainly did, who being the brightness of his glory and the express image of his presence, Christ is the brightness of God glory and the express image of God presence.
Heaven and earth will pass away but my word will not
God in father, son and Holy spirit. Its not a trinity of three persons, its a trinity of office. One God.
Example If I have a wife and 3 sons that will make me a husband to my wife, a father to my children and a son to my mother, same person different offices. Husband - Father - Son - Same I.
- God the father leading the children of Israel
- God on earth dwelling in his son
- God now in his church as the Holy Ghost
- Father-son-Holy Spirit = Jesus is just a part of God and he is God the lamb of God, God himself.
People try to divide him in three he is just one God not Gods. Jesus is the head of all things he is just in flesh form, but the Christ is not the flesh but the power of the only living God "Spirit."
Even you are a God "Part of God" before God laid the foundation of the earth you was in him, you are a thought express, Who Thought? God thought, he had to think about you before you came into existence you are a different office of God manifest. Jesus created the world being in God.
When we here someone say I have the Holy Ghost, they mean they have God in spirit form embody in them. But Jesus said in
ST. JOHN 14:26
But the comforter which is the Holy Ghost, whom the father will send in my name shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
God is Jesus - Jesus is God - and by him the worlds was made. Se lah
May the God of heaven bless you richly.
