Can You Hear Me Now? 7 Ways God Spoke to People (Hebrews 1)

Passage: Hebrews 1
Service Type:

Exploring Hebrews 1 unveils the multifaceted ways in which God communicates with humanity. Bible scholars do not all agree on the author of Hebrews.  Some possibilities are Apostle Paul, Barnabas, or Apollos, but ultimately inspired by the Holy Spirit, the book targets Jewish Christians, cautioning against reverting to Judaism and affirming Jesus' superiority. Divided into three sections, it asserts Christ's supremacy over other key biblical figures, delineates the superiority of the New Covenant, and underscores the appropriate response to this revelation.

Hebrews 1:1-4 illuminates seven channels through which God communicates. Firstly, through the cosmos, where the vast expanse proclaims divine glory, evident in Colonel James Irwin's lunar proclamation. Secondly, nature reflects intelligent design, compelling acknowledgment of a Creator amidst confusion over scientific theories. Thirdly, signs and wonders, as demonstrated in biblical narratives like God versus Pharaoh, showcase God's power, yet often evoke fear rather than faith.

Fourthly, conscience acts as an internal moral compass, revealing a higher moral lawgiver despite human propensity to ignore it. Fifthly, the High Priest ritualizes communication with God, though impersonal compared to the intimacy of confession. Sixthly, prophets convey God's holiness and demand obedience, often met with resistance due to perceived judgmentalism and potential message distortion.

Lastly, God's ultimate communication unfolds through His Son, Jesus Christ, echoing the Father's voice and providing unparalleled clarity and intimacy. Supporting verses from Psalms, Isaiah, and Job underline God's sovereignty over creation, reinforcing the majesty of His communication.

As we ponder these diverse means of divine dialogue, we're challenged to discern God's voice amidst the noise of life. Are we attuned to the whispers of creation, the promptings of conscience, and the proclamation of Scripture? Are we receptive to the personal encounter with Jesus, who embodies God's message in its purest form?

Join us at Calvary Chapel West Jacksonville, under the pastoral guidance of Allen Victor, as we delve deeper into God's Word, discerning His voice and responding with obedient hearts.  Let's tune our ears to hear God's voice and walk in obedience to His leading.
