We cannot know God through human speculation; only divine revelation will show Him to us. Thankfully, as Alistair Begg reminds us, He enters into the realm of our perception, the infinite God graciously making Himself known to us. Jesus is His final word to humanity, fulfilling a threefold office: He is the prophet who reveals, the Priest who reconciles, and the King who reigns. He has dealt with our ignorance, sin, and rebellion. Let us come to God through Christ!
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.
