The Alpha and the Omega

““I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.””‭‭Revelation‬ ‭1:8‬ MEV

“The Beginning and the End”, big words from a big man. Jesus said these words in a vision to John while he was under house arrest on the island of Patmos. Jesus is the alpha and the omega in His eternal nature, His role in creation, His sustaining of the universe, and in His fulfillment as the Messiah. Those who read the words of Jesus referring to Himself as the alpha and the omega in Revelation find One who refers to Himself as Lord who will one day make all things new as described in Revelation 22. 

There many times in our lives where something seems to last “forever”. Board meetings, classes, and commuting, all of these events can seem to stretch on for much longer than they really are. If we let the constant drudgery of our earthly existence drag us down, and therefore away from God, then we are losing sight of the true eternity. The eternity in which Jesus is sitting at the right hand of God, as he has since before time began, and speaking on our behalf. During times of saddness, depression, or feeling downtrodden we must turn our eyes to God. Open your Bible, voice your concerns to God, and focus on the blessings that you have received.
