“And He Who is seated on the throne said, See! I make all things new. Also He said, Record this, for these sayings are faithful and true. And He said to me, It is done! I AM the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I Myself will give water without price from the fountain of the water of Life. He who is victorious shall inherit all these things, and I will be God to him and he shall be My son.” (Revelation 21:5-7).
You may have heard the saying “from the cradle to the grave.” That sums up the Alpha and the Omega. God is determined to see this thing through to the bitter end. His longsuffering and patience is hard to comprehend, yet He is just that. He wants so much for everyone to come to Him before it’s too late!
From the Garden to the Great White Throne judgment day–His purposes WILL be fulfilled regardless of the thoughts and opinions of man. Regardless of how desperately Satan fights against it.
The words “Alpha and Omega” are spoken many times in the book of Revelation. Jesus spoke them about Himself in the letters to the churches and throughout the rest of the book. History shows that civilizations that don’t acknowledge the Creator are doomed to failure. Sodom and Gomorrah. Babylon. Rome. They all came and went. Their glory a thing of the past. The Alpha and the Omega remains steadfast. The only real solid thing in this crazy world.
The culmination of a world gone mad is approaching and for the children of God, it can’t come quick enough! The Word says “For we know that the whole creation groans and travails in pain together until now.” (Romans 8:22). As the great day approaches, the children of God are working hard to bring in the harvest, we are travailing in prayer for the lost, for the nations and for each other. Just like the labor pains of a woman, we are crying more and more intensely Maranatha Lord Jesus!
The Alpha and the Omega is about to step out on that cloud to call His Bride. The Bride is preparing herself by abandoning the things of this world, by returning to holiness, by throwing everything off the throne of their hearts and putting Jesus Christ in the center of their lives. To everyone who claims the Name of Jesus Christ reading this: The Alpha and the Omega says “Get ready! I AM coming soon!”
