Eternal Lord Jesus
(Revelation 1.7-8)
Page 21

"Look, he is coming with the clouds, and 'every eye will see him, even those who pierced him;' and all peoples on earth 'will mourn because of him.' So shall it be! Amen. 'I am the Alpha and the Omega,' says the Lord God, 'who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.'" (Revelation 1.7-8)✞

Alpha and Omega

The Alpha and Omega LettersLike John's Gospel, which started with the words, "In the beginning was the Word," John began his Revelation letters with the same truth that the Lord Jesus was the eternal Lord God. This was one of only two places where the Lord God spoke directly. God used the first letter in the Greek alphabet, "Alpha" and the last letter "Omega" as titles for the Lord Jesus meaning the "first" and the "last." Jesus is the eternal one. ✞

Present and Future

Alpha Omega CarvingGod described Jesus as the eternal, "Alpha" the present, and the future, "Omega." Without Jesus, there was nothing that was eternal, nothing that lasted beyond this life, nothing that opened up a future in Heaven.✞

All Will See Him

EyeJohn of Patmos continued, "Every eye will see" Jesus Christ. Every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord including all who reject him or persecute him and his servants. Jesus was the "Beginning" and the "End." In a similar way, at the end of Revelation, Jesus was called, the "First" and the "Last." It is a basic truth that God controls the whole of time and our whole lives from beginning to end through Jesus himself.
