God, who at various times and in various ways spoke . . .

(Hebrews 1:1)

 

God has chosen to reveal Himself throughout history in various ways. Sometimes God spoke verbally. He also spoke in dreams, as with Joseph and Daniel, and through visions, as He did with Ezekiel, who saw “wheels in the middle of wheels.” In each event they were merely fragmentary, intermittent segments of the full revelation of Christ. Today the totality of God’s love toward us is met in the person of Jesus Christ. You can comprehend Christ’s completeness by carefully reading what God has spoken in the past and realizing the fulfillment of His speech in the present.
