Tuesday 22nd November, Today’s Article: He’s The First And The Last (Rhapsody of Realities Today)

HE’S THE FIRST AND THE LAST 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).

As you study Jesus in the Scriptures, you come to an unequivocal conclusion: He is Himself God! He’s 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 heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last…” (Revelation 1:10-11). That’s Jesus!

The Lord also said to him, “…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…” (Revelation 1:17-18). The only one who fits this description is Jesus. He’s the One that 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 absolutely 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, and He’s in you, and He’s perfected all that concerns you. He’s the author (beginning) and perfecter (ending) of all things. Blessed be God!

PRAYER

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 in the path of life, to fulfil your perfect will. Amen.
