Hebrews 1:1–4 NASB95
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 made the world. And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and 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.

Application

We are blessed to be living in these times, watching the unfolding of prophecy that is preparing for the arrival and the coming King, Jesus. Our purpose on this earth is to a live a life that reflects our belief in the death, resurrection, and return of the Son of God/Son of Man. It is a life that should recognize the author, creator, sustainer, provider, and deliverer. How convicted the first century believers must been through thought and emotions. How convinced are we today, that Jesus fills the position and person of the Son of God, Son of Man, and Christ/Messiah? Are we living a life that reflects this belief?
