God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds;
Hebrews 1:1-2 NKJV
In the past, God spoke to people through his prophets. When the Israelites or other people did evil in His sight, God sent specially selected men and women to warn them about His coming judgment. Sometimes the people listened and repented. Other times they ignored the prophets and suffered the consequences.
God also spoke through angels. When He had a special message to convey, He used angels to deliver it in person. Abraham, Daniel and Jesus’ mother, Mary, all received messages from angels. Mary’s message foretold Jesus’ birth.
When God sent Jesus, He gave humankind its clearest and best messenger. Jesus is better than prophets and angels because He does not speak for God; He speaks as God. John 1:1 tells us Jesus is the Word. Every word He speaks is from the mouth of God. If we live according to Jesus’ words, if we think of ourselves and treat others as He instructs, we will please God.
Folks, we are blessed because we do not have to rely on prophets or angels to receive the voice of God. All we have to do is pick up the Bible and read Jesus’ words.
