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 foundation of the water of life freely.
As we head into the Christmas season, I felt led by the Holy Spirit to begin a brief study of the names/titles that is associated with Jesus according to scripture. Some of the names we will be focusing on in the coming weeks in addition to Jesus as Alpha and Omega are:
(a) The Bred of life, (b) The Chief Cornerstone, (c) The Good Shepherd, (d) The Chief Shepherd, (e) the High Priest, (f) the Prophet, (g)Mediator, (h) the Word, (h) the Way, (j) the Truth, (k) life, (j) Wonderful Counselor, (l) the Son of God, (m) the Son of Man, (n) Lam of God, (o) Lord, (p) Prince of Peace, (q) the Son of God, (r) Savior, (s) God, (t) the Christ.
Looking that the above names associated with Jesus and ask this question, What do these names teach us about Jesus our Lord and Savior. It is my mission to end these discussions with a unanimous agreement that all names associated with Jesus points to Him being the Christ the incarnated Son of God.
In today's discussion our focus will be Alpha and Omega which tells us that Jesus is the beginning and ending of all things. The other point to be made on Jesus as Alpha and Omega is that He was in the beginning with God as He is God and the world was created by Him (John 1:1-3); therefore Jesus had His beginning long before His virgin birth. It is noteworthy to say that God used the spoken Word in creating everything that was created both seen and unseen (Colossian 1:16); therefore, when John presented Jesus as the eternal Word of God authenticates Genesis 1:1. It is also noteworthy to say that the Godhead, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit were present during creation as the Holy Spirit had an active role in creation as He is seen as "moving" over creation (Genesis 1:2) preserving and preparing creation for God further creative works/activities.
Let's close today's discussion by saying, Jesus was in the beginning (Alpha) and He will be present in the end (Omega) when all God's children who have dranked form the foundation of eternal life will spend eternity with our Savior.
What a blessing it is to have a God who has no beginning and no end! Glory to God!
