THE ALPHA & THE OMEGA ~ THE WORD ~ THE SON OF GOD ~ THE LAMB OF GOD ~ THE MESSIAH ~ THE HIGH PRIEST ~ THE LION OF JUDAH & THE SON OF MAN

Rev 1:8  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.

The Alpha – The Beginning

>> Creation << was the Decree sent forth from Eternity Past and the >> Grand Design << was the Earthly Development and Implementation of GOD’S >> Divine Plan, <<  All was initiated before the Foundation of the World. JESUS CHRIST was  from the Beginning and Instrumental as Co-Creator of the Divine Plan.  As Alpha – the FirstHE was before Creation (HE Who was) HE was with GOD in the Beginning.

Joh_1:1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Joh_1:2  The same was in the beginning with God. 

Eph_3:9  And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:

Rev 19:12  His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
Rev 19:13  And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
Rev 19:14  And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

HE is the Resurrected CHRIST and the First Begotten of the Dead (those who have fallen asleep in CHRIST); (HE Who is). CHRIST Created all things in heaven and on Earth; things that are visible and things invisible which include the different Orders of the >> Angels. <<  such as thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers. CHRIST has the Preeminence and is the First and by HIM all things consist. 

Col 2:9  For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
Col 2:10  And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:

Col 1:16  For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
Col 1:17  And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

Col 1:18  And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
Col 1:19  For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;

1Co 15:20  But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.

CHRIST is also the Omega, the Last (HE Who is to come). HE is All in All. HE will raise HIS People as Kings and Priests to GOD, the Father of Spirits.

Joh_4:24  God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

Heb_12:9  Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?

Rev 1:5  And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,
Rev 1:6  And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

Rom_11:36  For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.

The Book of the Revelation of JESUS CHRIST depicts how Mankind who was doomed to die was Saved and Redeemed through the >> Person << and >> Eternal Work  (& Worth) of JESUS CHRIST << as was Purposed by the Mercy and Grace of GOD, before the World began, through the Lamb of GOD (JESUS the CHRIST) who was Slain from the Foundation of the World for the Salvation of Mankind.

Rev_13:8  And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

The Vision – The Alpha & Omega

As the Vision unfolds JESUS CHRIST is Revealed and identified as the ALPHA & OMEGA. HE was Revealed to John in a Vision while he was in Exile on Patmos – a prison Island. CHRIST sent an Angel to John who was HIS Disciple/Apostle while HE was Performing GOD’S Purpose on the Planet Earth which were >> The Manifold Works of CHRIST << & >> The Eternal Works of CHRIST << which included but was not limited to >> GOD’S Divine Plan << and >> GOD’S Grand Design << for Earth and its Inhabitants. There are additional things Planned that we are not yet Privy to or familiar with because GOD has not Ordained that information to be released as yet.

It is for this reason Individuals should not try to Purport “New Interpretations”, “New Revelations” or “New Truths”. It is usually the cause for Dissension and Schisms of the Organized Spiritual Church of GOD. When GOD Desires a “New Dispensation” of Spiritual Truth or Spiritual Revival HE gives it and it has “HIS Seal” upon it as did the Spiritual Gospel Dispensation through JESUS CHRIST; The Need for Spiritual Revival through the Letters/Messages from JESUS CHRIST to the Spiritual Church, and later The Spiritual Church Reformation. When it is not of GOD, as all false Prophecies are, it too will be known. Believers are not to put their Trust in Man but in GOD, JESUS CHRIST and the >> Bible. <<
