7 “Look, he is coming with the clouds,” and “every eye will see him, even those
who pierced him”; and all peoples on earth “will mourn because of him.” So
shall it be! Amen. 8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God,
“who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.”
12 “Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will
give to each person according to what they have done. 13 I am
the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the
Beginning and the End.
1. JESUS IS I AM.
2. JESUS IS ALPHA.
COLOSSIAN 1:15-17 NLT
15 Christ is the visible IMAGE of the invisible God. He existed
before anything was created and is SUPREME over all creation,
16 for through him God created everything in the heavenly
realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the
things we can’t see - such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and
authorities in the unseen world. Everything was created through
him and for him. 17 He existed before anything else, and HE
HOLDS ALL CREATION TOGETHER.
JESUS IS OMEGA.
a) He ends His work in us.
3 I thank my God every time I remember you. 4 In all my prayers
for all of you, I always pray with joy 5 because of your
partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, 6 being
confident of this, that HE WHO BEGAN A GOOD WORK IN
YOU will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
1 CORINTHIANS 6:9-11
9 Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the
kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually
immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with
men 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers
nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And that is
what SOME OF YOU WERE. But you were washed, you
were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus
Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
b) He ends His creation.
2 PETER 3:10, 12
10 But the DAY OF THE LORD will come like a thief. The heavens
will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and
the earth and everything in it will be burned up. 12 That day will bring
about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt
in the heat.
