Word for the Week...DEC 12 ---18 / 2005

"God who at sundry times and in diverse manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,(V.2)hath in these last days by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds.

Christ is Unique, inasmuch as He is The only One with the final Divine Authority to be The last spokesman for God. He is Superior to all the preceding prophets because He Is the Word of The Father, made flesh, Who dwelt among us. There is a theological progression known as' the law of first mention', which simply refers to the mention of Christ's Supremacy in 3 places of the New Testament...[1] The Gospel of John Ch.1:1-3.[2] Colossians 1:15-17. [3] Heb.1:1-2. 

Christ is both Heir and Agent of creation, Co-equal with The Father and The Holy Spirit; God in three persons, Blessed Trinity.We can meditate on The wondrous Grace shown to us sinners when , through faith in Him, we are born again of the Spirit of God and adopted into God's family, co-heirs with Christ !!! Small wonder, that Paul wrote of the 'depths of the riches of His Grace.' We only deserve hell, but He Has paid the price in full for our redemption. As we celebrate this Season of Goodwill, let us spare a thought for The One Who brought it all into existence, and will end it as well ! True humility must be ultimately expressed in His Coming to this world to be born as a babe, and lie in a manger.The way up...is down. In Bethlehem that night, Hope, Joy and Peace came into this dark world. Avail yoursef of this, while there is still time...!                          May The Lord Bless you.
