Alpha Omega Amen (Revelation 22.19-21)

"And if anyone takes words away from this scroll of prophecy, God will take away from that person any share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this scroll. He who testifies to these things says, 'Yes, I am coming soon.' Amen. Come, Lord Jesus. The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God's people. Amen." (Revelation 22.19-21)✞

Come Lord Jesus

The Alpha and OmegaIn the phrases, "Amen" and "Alpha and Omega" is embodied the whole idea of completeness. These are the last words of Christ in the New Testament. These titles indicate that Jesus is the first in line, the "Alpha" or the first letter beginning and the last letter ending the Greek alphabet, the "Omega." The Hebrews used "aleph" to "tau" in a similar manner to indicate completeness. For instance, Abraham kept the whole Law from "aleph" to "tau." Alpha to omega for Christians is the sign that Jesus Christ is God's completion in himself and requires nothing else from any other source to be finished.✞

Time Inclusive

Alpha and OmegaJesus includes in himself all time, for he is the "first and the last." Jesus is also the author of all things. An old saying has it, "Since God was the beginning, he received his power from no one, since he is the middle, he shares his power with no one, and since he will be the end, he hands over his power to no one."
