God spoke to us through the prophets

God spoke to us through the prophets

To allow Pastor Jensen time for grieving, today we had the opportunity to hear the sermon which Deacon Poe had prepared to deliver a few weeks ago but was cancelled on account of snow.

We are the Christian church, which means that we believe in the Christ. But how do we know that Jesus was the Christ? Because of all the prophets in the Old Testament, providing a great cloud of witnesses for Him.

Today’s sermon is based on Hebrews 1:

1Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, 2but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. 3He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, 4having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.
5For to which of the angels did God ever say,
“You are my Son, today I have begotten you”?
Or again,
“I will be to him a father, and he shall be to me a son”?
6And again, when he brings the firstborn into the world, he says,
“Let all God’s angels worship him.”
