I Am the Alpha and the Omega
I am the first and I am the last. There is no God but me.
(Isaiah 44:6, ESV)
God is before and after all things and therefore in control of everything in between. His Word begins and ends with Jesus Christ, from Genesis to Revelation.
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. (Genesis 1:1)
In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
He was with God in the beginning.
All things were created through him …
The Word became flesh and dwelt among us.
(John 1:1-3,14, CSB)
Jesus said to them, “Truly I tell you, before Abraham was, I am.”
He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature,
and he upholds the universe by the word of his power.
After making purification for sins,
he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high …
(Hebrews 1:3 – Read all of Hebrews 1)
“I am the ‘A’ and the ‘Z,’” says ADONAI,
God of heaven’s armies,
the One who is, who was, and who is coming.
(Revelation 1:8, CJB)
“Don’t be afraid. I am the First and the Last, and the Living One.
I was dead, but look—I am alive forever and ever …”
(Revelation 1:17, CSB)
Jesus said: “I am the Alpha and the Omega,
the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”
