Alpha And Omega – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional December 8th

(He’s The First And The Last, The Beginning And The End)

TO THE BIBLE: Revelation 1:8 AMPC
“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, says the Lord God, He Who is and Who was and Who is to come, the Almighty (the Ruler of all).”

“The future looks so bleak, Liz; my family lost everything in that fire. What do I do?” Stacie lamented to her friend, Elizabeth.
“Have no fear, Stacie. Jesus knows all about your future, and He’ll replace all you’ve lost; just trust Him.”

As you study Jesus in the Scriptures, you come to an unequivocal conclusion: He is Himself God, the First and the Last, the beginning and the ending. He’s the One described by Daniel as the Ancient of Days.

John the Apostle, while exiled on the island of Patmos, received revelations from the Lord. He said, “I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day, and I heard behind me a loud voice, as of a trumpet, saying, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last…”” (Revelation 1:10-11). That’s Jesus!

The Lord also said to him, “…Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last. I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen…” (Revelation 1:17-18). The only one who fits this description is Jesus. He’s the One who died but is alive forever more. Hallelujah!

Now, if He’s the beginning and the ending, that means you have nothing to fear or worry about in your journey of success. He’s with you and in you.

As you start, He’s right there. On the way, He’s right there. At the end, He’s also there. He’s got you covered! He’s with you at every phase of your journey.

No wonder the Bible says in Hebrews 12:2, “Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith….” That means you don’t need to worry about the future; from the very beginning, He already knows the end, and He says, “Fear not.”

Therefore, be bold and confident always, knowing that you’re in Christ, that He’s in you, and that He’s perfected all that concerns you. He’s the author (beginning) and perfecter (ending) of all things. Glory to God!

Precious Lord Jesus, you’re glorious; you’re great and mighty; you’re righteous, holy, pure, and true. You’re the Alpha and Omega, the author and perfecter of all things! I rejoice evermore, knowing that you’re in me and with me always, guiding me on the path of life to fulfil your perfect will.
