Sub.1 Sub.1 Document Transcript

  • God’s Revelation to Man Heb1:1-14 God used various ways/people: Hebrews 1:1 Visitation: Gen 18: three men visited Abraham… Dream: Dan 2: King Nebuchadnezzar had a dream… Signs: Ex 13:21 cloud by day/ fire by night Parable: Num 22:28 God spoke through a donkey Event: Ex 5: to 10: Moses tells Pharaoh, “Let me people go” ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Just as God has communicated>various ways....now he speaks through the expressed image of his Son found in Matthew 1: 2: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Visitation: Matt. 1:20 “an angel...Lord appeared to him” Dream: How did the angel appear? In a Dream… vs.20 Event: Jesus: Holy Spirit Matt 1: Miraculous conception Parable: vs.21of Matt 1: “he shall call his name Jesus….”Saviour Sign: Wise men came to him worship and bring gifts Matt 2:1, 2 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- >Jesus created: Universe>invisible/visible Rom 1:20 >Jesus is the brightness of God’s glory. John 1:1-4 >Jesus’ brightness is inherent and not reflective: Moon>light from the sun -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Heb 1: Vs.3 says: Jesus was the express image of God. Rom 11:33 how unsearchable his judgments, and his ways past finding out! ! Scientists…Evolutionist>Big Bang! Who Caused the Big Bang? ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- >Express image means: Exact representation/character/nature or being... Bible says: No man has seen God at any time. Yet he [God] came in human form. John 3:12 says, “If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe…” ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ >Adam & Eve communed with God >Moses was God’s companion 40 days: voice/never face=figure. Yet he wrote in Gen 2:4, “This is the history of the heavens and the earth...” >Lucifer: God’s covering cherub. Knew /lived/>disobeyed God’s authority. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Philip in John 14:8 says, “Lord, show us the Father,” Jesus: “3. 5 years …” vs. 9 “If you see me, you see the father” 1
  • Heb 1 Vs.3 says Jesus upholds everything by the word of his power. >He told: • The winds stop blowing // The waves to calm down / Sun stand still • The Atmosphere freshen up //red sea to create walls /River Jordan to cleanse a King of his leprosy And still you deny his majestic power? Have you seen gravity; its effects? Then, you don’t have to see to believe! His Spirit keeps you alive...nostrils ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Vs.3 says Jesus>Sat down…why? • His superiority to the Levitical priesthood has been accomplished • His job of offering himself as the lamb of God is done • He has taken on the name of our perfect high priest and intercessor Vs.4 Jesus is better than angels, why? • He is the arch angel [creator of angels] Ezekiel 28:13>created • Sits at God’s right hand // Eternal inheritance • Name is above all name // King of Kings / Lord of Lords • Angels answer to him and no one else He is God’s begotten Son>through his death....Saviour, Lord and Messiah. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Vs.6 Angels & mankind worship Jesus...king of the earth & heaven ! Root> “worship” is to be worthy of ? Is Jesus worthy of your praise? ? Is Jesus worthy of your job? ? Is he worthy of your salary? ? Do you thank him for things you have...? ! Jesus is either Lord of all or he’s not Lord at all. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Vs. 9 says, Jesus loves righteousness and hates lawlessness. Pro 28:4 says, “Those who forsake the law praise the wicked.” Bravo! Adultery, fornication, divorce, rape, murder, incest, stealing, hate, hypocrisy, lying, violence, all forms of lawlessness Sinning is synonymous with saying cheers to all forms of Lawlessness. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Vs.14 Only “Companions”>close/associates/Partners>reign with Jesus Jesus came to reveal himself to man>Restore>communication/our Habitat ? Had Jesus not revealed himself to man...man? • Jesus wants to save souls... while man wants to save the animals. • Jesus wants to renew this earth while man wants to retard this planet from delving into an irreversible catastrophe ? Do you see yourself living...saturated with wickedness and violence? ! Would you love to dwell on high with Jesus? Pipe dream>reality! ! Eternal life does not come by proxy. It’s a choice. 2
  • ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ >God has revealed himself in the form of flesh and blood to man. Isaiah 5:25[But his hand is stretched out still] ? Are you still looking toward Bethlehem’s manger in search of the baby Jesus or are you reading John’s account in 1: 1-4 & Hebrews 1:2-4 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ? Do you only celebrate God’s Revelation to man on Good Friday & Christmas Day when the masses are re-enacting his life burial & resurrection? ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- >Gen 1:26[Let us make man in our own image.]>Root>imagination ! God imagined long ago that you would be here... That’s why he wants to reveal himself to you through his Son Jesus Christ by whom he expresses the power of his revelation. 3 View slide
