But in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son . . . (Hebrews 1:2a NIV)
Now, what is God saying to His human creation in our day and time? In brief, He is saying, "Jesus Christ is My beloved Son. Hear Him!"
The reason many do not want to hear what God is saying through Jesus to our generation is not hard to guess. God's message in Jesus is a moral pronouncement. It brings to light such elements as faith and conscience and conduct, obedience and loyalty. Men and women reject this message for the same reason they have rejected all of the Bible. They do not wish to be under the authority of the moral Word of God.
For centuries God spoke in many ways. He inspired holy men to write portions of the message in a Book. People do not like it and try their best to avoid it because God has made it the final test of all morality, the final test of all Christian ethics.
Search me, O God, and know my heart. Lead me in the way everlasting. For Jesus' sake.
God speaks through Christ the Son who is Light. Light exposes darkness with its ugly sin. We welcome the Light and open ourselves to it or we flee from it, seeking to hide in the darkness. But it is impossible to hide from God-radiance.
