I am ALPHA and OMEGA, the beginning and the ending, saith the LORD, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the ALMIGHTY. (Revelation 1:8)
Who is this Alpha and Omega? The scripture tells us that it is the LORD, and this scripture also describes Him as the ALMIGHTY!
I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, Saying, I am ALPHA and OMEGA, the FIRST and the LAST: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea. (Revelation 1:10-11)
We can conclude through the scripture verse above that the Alpha and Omega is also the First and the Last.
And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the FIRST and the LAST I am he that LIVETH and was DEAD; and, behold, I am ALIVE FOR EVERMORE, Amen; and have the keys of HELL and of DEATH. (Revelation 1:17-18)
We can also conclude that the First and the Last was alive at one time, then was DEAD but is now ALIVE again for evermore.
And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the FIRST and the LAST, which was DEAD, and is ALIVE; (Revelation 2:8)
The scripture above confirms Revelation 1:17-18 in showing us that the First and the Last was DEAD but is now ALIVE!
And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am ALPHA and OMEGA, the beginning and the end, the FIRST and the LAST. (Revelation 22:12-13)
The scripture above tells us that the Alpha and Omega is also called the Beginning and the Ending, and the First and the Last, which confirms Revelation 1:8. It also tells us that He is coming again to judge mankind.
In the Old Testament book of Isaiah we find some more information about the First and the Last:
Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the FIRST, and I am the LAST; and beside me THERE IS NO GOD. (Isaiah 44:6)
The verse above tells us that the King of Israel, is the REDEEMER of ISRAEL, and is also the First and the Last. The verse also tells that there is beside NO GOD beside Him.
Folks these are some HEAVY DUTY scripture verses, are they not?
CONCLUSION OF THE MATTER
There is absolutely no question as to who these scripture verses are describing, and that is the person of Jesus Christ. A person can CHOOSE to reject the counsel of GOD that is found in the scriptures, BUT it will be at their own peril. The verses make it clear that this same person will be the ONE who will JUDGE all mankind.
The question remains. What will YOU do with Jesus Christ?
There is NO such thing as a neutral position with Jesus Christ.
A neutral is a NO in the sight of God.
In fact the LORD said that He would spue [vomit] the lukewarm out of His mouth. [Revelation 3:16]
I JESUS have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the ROOT and the OFFSPRING OF DAVID, and the bright and morning star. And the SPIRIT and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life FREELY. For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, GOD shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, GOD shall take away his part out of the BOOK OF LIFE, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. He which testifieth these things saith, SURELY I COME QUICKLY. AMEN. Even so, come, LORD JESUS. The grace of our LORD JESUS CHRIST be with you all. Amen. (Revelation 22:16-21)
