Where Were You When I Laid the Foundations of the Earth? Job 38:4-7
Does the Alpha and Omega, the I Am Creator of this world exist? Has science proven that god is just a conjured bit of imagination that comforts those who cannot accept the inevitable conclusion that the world and us just happened. The Christian philosopher, Ravi Zacharias writes the opposite. “To sustain the belief that there is no God, atheism has to demonstrate infinite knowledge, which is tantamount to saying, “I have infinite knowledge that there is no being in existence with infinite knowledge.” Talk about being trapped in your own logic. Even though it is so illogical to think that our universe and life itself was just a fortunate accident, why is there so much hatred against those who believe in God? In our message we explore the meaning of life and the existence of God through the life and story of Job, a follower of God.
Question: What does it mean that Jesus is the Alpha and the Omega?”
Answer: Jesus proclaimed Himself to be the “Alpha and Omega” in Revelation 1:8, 11;21:6; and 22:13. Alpha and omega are the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet. Among the Jewish rabbis, it was common to use the first and the last letters of the Hebrew alphabet to denote the whole of anything, from beginning to end. Christ, as the Alpha and Omega, is the first and last as the “author and finisher” of our faith (Hebrews 12:2), signifying that He begins it and carries it through to completion. He is the fulfilling end of the Law (Matthew 5:17), and He is the beginning subject matter of the gospel of grace through faith, not of works (Ephesians 2:8-9). He is found in the first verse of Genesis and in the last verse of Revelation. He is the first and last, the all in all of salvation, from the justification before God to the final sanctification of His people.
