Revelation 21:6 – “And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.”
Here, we see the Lord giving Himself the titles “Alpha and Omega” and “the Beginning and the End”. These titles reveal the Lord as:
- The One who has existed from the beginning and will continue to exist through the end of time…
Psalms 90:2 – “Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.”
- The One who has begun all things and the One that will bring this world to an end…
Psalms 102:24-27 – “I said, O my God, take me not away in the midst of my days: thy years are throughout all generations. Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands. They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed: But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end.”
Folks, this knowledge is a wonderful blessing for each one of us….
Just stop and think the same Lord that brought the world into existence is the same Lord that we now serve. The same Lord that existed in the Old Testament times, constantly working on behalf of His people, is the same Lord that is now working on our behalf.
Psalms 111:2-4 – “The works of the LORD are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein. His work is honourable and glorious: and his righteousness endureth for ever. He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: the LORD is gracious and full of compassion.”
Moreover, the same Lord that gives us promises of eternity with Him will never be defeated, nor go out of existence, He will live eternally. He will not leave us nor forsake us, as time continues forward, He will forever be by our side protecting us, enabling us, and keeping His promises to us.
Psalms 103:17-18 – “But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children’s children; To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.”
Folks may we honor our Lord with our lives today knowing that He is always existent and forever caring for us…. even throughout eternity!
