Alpha/Omega


"And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am" (Jn.14:3).

One of the distinct messages of the Bible is that the universe had a beginning and that it will also come to an end. The beginning was the creation and the end will be with purpose also. There are those that are in denial about both of these. The armchair quarterbacks of non-belief, and even some Christians of a weak faith are in this denial. Let it be known to all that will listen that the Bible is uncompromising in its message that Jesus will return. What it does not encourage however, is to spend needless time, effort and money speculating upon the time. The important affirmation is that He will return. I find this in opposition to the needless prognostications of a time. An important dictate of Jesus return is that all will be made right. The injustice and the innocent suffering will be corrected as His righteous judgement will be made. We are encouraged to believe the message. In that the Lord will appear for a second time, Christians have a call to live a life commensurate with that belief. To live a morally upright life of service to Him. To live a life of righteousness and thankfulness. As we come upon the season when the Christian world thinks of the resurrection, we should also be aware of His promised return. How we live in this body will determine our destiny. "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life" (Rev.22:13-14).

Have a wonderful day....Serve the Lord with gladness... Love mark Phil.4:11
