The Alpha And Omega

Twice in the Book of Revelation God calls Himself, “Him who was” (1:4, 8). “The God that was” is how half the world thinks of Him. The One who created heaven and earth and has done little ever since. That is very foolish! Could a God of such creative imagination settle down sitting in heaven with his hands folded? He filled the empty skies with surpassing beauty and then went to sleep? Could any of us build even a house and abandon it? Could God ignore His own universe? God brought the glittering stars and the planets into being. That’s Him! “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands.” Psalm 19 says. The writer is thrilled. He is distracted from creation by the Creator. Modern science takes everything apart like taking a violin apart to see what makes the sound. It loses the Divine radiance. “In Thee o Lord, do I put my trust…” Do it today. Good morning from Florida.  – REINHARD BONNKE

I am the α and the Ω, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. – Revelation 22:13

This is what the LORD says–Israel’s King and Redeemer, the LORD Almighty: I am the first and I am the last; apart from me there is no God. – Isaiah 44:6

Listen to me, O Jacob, Israel, whom I have called: I am he; I am the first and I am the last. – Isaiah 48:12

When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. Then he placed his right hand on me and said: “Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last”. – Revelation 1:17

To the angel of the church in Smyrna write: These are the words of him who is the First and the Last, who died and came to life again. – Revelation 2:8

To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation. – Revelation 3:14

He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life.” – Revelation 21:6
