Revelation 22:12-16 (NKJV) 12 “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.” 14 Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. 15 But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie. 16 “I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.”
We as believers should know this program of God. We are told that an angel brings to us this all important and personal word from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. And in the Word of God, Jesus is saying it personally to all who believes in Him by faith. Jesus is promising that He is coming again. No one can doubt or deny this all important and personal promise of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. When Jesus returns, He is going to reward each of us individually. Jesus will personally reward those in the church at the Rapture and the faithful remnant of Israel when He sets up His Millennial Kingdom. And here Jesus asserts His deity, saying, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.” Jesus said this at the beginning of Revelation, and He says it again at the end of Revelation. No true believer can doubt or deny the deity of Jesus Christ; He is God the Son, the Second Person of the Trinity. Only those who are saved through the shed blood of Jesus Christ have the right to the Tree of Life and access to the Holy City. “But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.” This is the all important and personal message that Jesus sent His angel to deliver to us. Our Lord Jesus said, “I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches.” My friends, we are going to spend eternity learning more about Jesus and His person. And here Jesus says, “I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.” Jesus is the Messiah; the Hope of the Old Testament. And Jesus is the Bright and Morning Star; the Hope of the New Testament. And Jesus makes it very clear that He is coming again. My friends, are you ready for Jesus’ return?
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
