Some years ago, I was listening to Israel Houghton’s song, “Alpha and Omega.” I have loved the song since I woke up late one night to the video of the song playing on the television. The song took me in then; it still ushers me into the presence of the Most High God. In my research, I learned that alpha and omega are the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet. But, as I listened to the song back then, I asked this question, “Please, Jesus, tell me what it means that you are Alpha and Omega.”
This is He ‘said” to me:
I Am the beginning and the end.
I Am the first and the last.
I Am the author and the finisher of your faith.
I am your definition.
I am your defining moment.
I am the definitive in your life.
I am the song in your heart, the smile on your face, the joy in your soul.
I Am the lifter of your head.
I Am the path beneath your feet.
I was with you in the beginning of your life; I will be with you at the end of your life.
I Am with you in everything in between.
I Am the beginning of your journey.
I Am your companion on your journey.
I Am the detour on your journey.
I Am your journey.
I know what has happened in your life; I know what is happening in your life; I know what will happen in your life.
I Am present always.
I Am the beginning of the matter.
I Am the conclusion of the matter.
I Am Alpha and Omega.
Just give my due in that you do!
What else do you need to know?
Well, when you ask Jesus a question, I guess He will give you the complete answer you need … from A to Z.
