2016-10-19 - Alpha and Omega
When you see the words alpha and omega together, what does it make you think about, other than what you may have learned regarding Greek letters of the alphabet? There is an animated movie that came out in 2010, and they use the words to describe wolves at opposite ends of the pack order. There are ministries that use the name to encompass their thoughts about beliefs stemming from Biblical truth, but more focused on a confrontational approach to conversion of the ideas to others. We have a local Realtor that sports the name, and it makes perfect sense in real estate that they want people to go to you first and last, in order that their business thrives. The same idea goes for the movie site with the same name. There are construction companies, delivery companies, a school curriculum company, and business phone systems and so on.
So in the world, there is value seen in being the start and finish of the attention of people. The difference is God is the solution for our gain and not to be a business deal, a questionable conversion method or learning thought process. Why would God do it? Simply put, for the love of His children. According to Bible Gateway.com, the phrase “His people” is used over four-hundred times in thirty-eight (of the sixty-six) books of the Bible. With that in mind, it seems pretty clear to me that the creator, who is the true Alpha and Omega, did all of this for us. My perspective of His love for me is even clearer. Thank you Father.
“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)
