The Revelation Of Jesus Christ: The Alpha And Omega

 | Spiry Tee

"And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me, “Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last."
Revelation 1:17 NKJV

Alpha is the first letter of the Greek alphabet and has a numerical value of one. So when Jesus referred to Himself as Alpha, He meant that He is number one. Jesus is number one in everything. He is the Champion of heaven who fought sin and death and prevailed.

In heaven, John saw in a vision and was troubled that there was no one worthy to open a certain book that was sealed seven times. Immediately, one of heaven's council members beckoned to John to see the worthy Lamb of God who was slain to receive all power and glory (John 5). Jesus is the Champion of heaven. He has the preeminence in heaven and on earth.

He was given authority and everything must bow, in heaven, on earth, and under the earth. God gave Him a name that is above every name. He is the real Alpha Man in God's sight. Not only is He the Firstborn over every creature in heaven and on earth, He is the First Begotten of the dead.

He comes first in everything. He is foremost in time, place, order and importance. Choose to make Jesus first in your life. He came first in the fight for your very soul. Why not give Him the first place in your heart? He died for you and must it be difficult for you to live for Him?

He is the Alpha but also the Omega. By Omega, which is the last letter of Greek alphabet, He means that He is the finality. He is the farthest final of place or time. Jesus is the goal of your very existence.  In everything you're pursuing today, what is your goal? What do you want to achieve?

Let Christ be your goal because everything ends in Him. Let your goal be Christlikeness. The value of your life is how much of Jesus you carry and exude. The impact of your life is how much of Jesus people see in you. Your faith, your love, your kindness, your incorruptibility is what counts with God.

Let Jesus be your starting point and your end goal. May Christ be the only defining feature of your very existence.  Let His life manifest in you as you demonstrate His power, grace and glory. Represent Him wherever you go. Live for Him for He is your life. You are dead and your life is hidden with Christ in God.

Christ is my Champion who conquered sin and death for me. He is my goal and reason for being.
