Of living good morning to all of you would turn within your Bibles to the book of Hebrews, Hebrews chapter 1 last time we met, we looked at a preview, review of papers and identity development roadmap what to expect what the authors trying to convey through this most wonderful book. As I mentioned, we really don't know who wrote it, but that may be talking with one brother earlier. It may be that the reason author kept it anonymous if you will was busy doing one focusing on him. He one of them focusing on the Lord Jesus, because that is the point of the book Hebrews chapter 1. Life is filled with many wonderful things. Think of some birth of a child or the adoption of a child. Think of the majestic mountains. Think of the gaping chasm of the Grand Canyon. If you ever been there. The sheer power of wind and water order, changeable bit. Just knowing that somebody loves you, even though they know all that is wrong with you one of the most astonishing things that all of is that God has spoken to hear what you think with me for minute on is the one who created all of those wonderful thing. The the ancient of days, the Almighty God rules over all of his creation. The Lord over all armies whether angelic or human. The one who, at this very moment holds all of creation together so it doesn't just back into nothingness, the one who is indeed so highly exalted. He spoken to imagine the apostle John Trimble is he's writing that the first that is the opening words of his gospel is is writing here he's telling us that in the beginning was the word and went okay, this one about whom I'm writing Jesus was there in the beginning, a tells us in there that he created everything he was with God, and oh by the way, and here's my real big point, saying he is now working on may have trouble us wonder what was going through his mind as he was was pending these words. This is one who uses the ancient of days. This one who created everything is one who was with God, and he is God. He would then say he became flesh and dwelt among us, where Johnson say in his first epistle that Jesus knowing dwelt among us, but we I get to see with my eyes and to hear it with my ears and touching God in is as marvelous as that hasn't he was blown away by his he tells us in his opening chapter about this one coming to live with us and dwelt among us are writer. The writer to Hebrews is going to take it one step further he's knowing it now. It was with us. He spoke to us how marvelous is that God has spoken to us as wizardly people throughout history what to believe that God has spoken directly to them. It is a wonderful thing for God to speak to you doesn't want to hear, speak, but I was careful to authenticate those who would be his genuine spokesmen were look at that more in chapter 2 will get into little more detail. There was very good to great pains to show you that okay, these are the ones who are speaking for me as we look back in history and what are writer here's doing savviness go back in history Dupree New Testament times and he's going to talk to for section about three groups who spoke for God is talk about profits first is to talk about the Angels and talk about the one who is like the premier spokesman for God. Moses. But none of those were in in in themselves and were to be yet unfortunately for percentages in history. They did elevate some of those to the status beyond what they should've had is possible. Some think that the writer of Hebrews is dealing with the Jews who were actually worshiping Angels addressing that that's probably will happen they were meant to be worshiped. Others throughout history would elevate this is that more people did this he elevated the writings of Moses, just as the same me. This is the end all. In fact, if you want to be say this is how you doing you got the mosaic law by all those were sent to point to something greater. This is disappoint this morning while God spoke in Old Testament times by holding over a long history in with rich variety it doesn't compare to what was yet to come. While God spoke in Old Testament times by a holy man over a long history with rich variety. It doesn't compare with what was to come. This look at our text hubris chapter 1. I read the first four versus phone with me God, after he spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways in these last days has spoken to us in his son, whom he appointed heir of all things through whom also he created world, and he Jesus the son is the radiance of his glory of God and the exact representation of his nature, and he upholds all things by the word of his power, when he had made purification of sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much better than the Angels as he has inherited a more excellent name than they
