In Australia, we have the freshest produce to cook awesome meals!
But that’s not the only food that is mouth-watering.
At Bible College this semester, I’m eating big mouthfuls of the New Testament.
In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.
Would you like to predict the future?
Why are some people fascinated with astrology and tarot cards?
Some people look at ancient prophecies for guidance and wisdom.
We have a strong desire to control our destiny and remove uncertainty in our lives.
The Bible passage above was written to those wanting to know about the “last days”.
In the past, God spoke to people through prophets or messengers.
Old Testament prophets predicted that a Day of Judgement was coming at the end of time.
Naturally, many people wanted to know when and how this would happen.
In these last days, God spoke to us most clearly through his Son: Jesus.
God created the universe through Jesus and appointed him king.
Jesus is the exact representation of God.
God chose to enter the world in the form of a physical man: Jesus.
The world remembers the birth of Jesus at Christmas every year.
However, Jesus was no ordinary man and different to the prophets from the past.
So when people saw Jesus, they were actually seeing God Himself.
Jesus’ words and actions revealed God directly to the world.
This was much clearer than any previous or subsequent human prophet.
Jesus turned the Jewish world and their Law upside-down.
His powerful teaching and actions were unique showing that he was God.
Jesus claimed to forgive sins, something only God could do.
Why did God choose to enter the world?
God demonstrated great love in saving us.
We could not save ourselves by our own efforts.
Only Jesus was perfect enough to offer us purification for sins.
Jesus died on a cross in our place and took the punishment that we deserved.
God raised Jesus to life again as King of the Universe.
Jesus has completed the task of salvation and is now seated at God’s right hand.
Through Jesus, God has spoken the most important message in the world:
Eternal life is on offer to all who trust Jesus’ death & resurrection.
Followers of Jesus can look forward to a bright future in His kingdom.
We can be assured of our destiny after the end of the world and Judgement Day.
This is far better than career success, money, sex and any other temporary pleasure.
What do you hope for in your future?
What will happen to you after you die?
For followers, are you living in a way that shows your future hope?
