The God 'Who Is'.
Revelation 1:8 -- "I am the Alpha and the Omega," says the Lord God, "who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty."
Take a moment and meditate on the nature of God. Notice that "who is" comes before "was" and "is to come." God's name in Exodus 3 is "Yahweh," the sacred name that derives from the Hebrew verb for "to be." God simply IS. He told Moses to say that the "I Am" sent him. He is the root and cause of all other beings - but He himself had no beginning and will know no end. He is eternal, unlike you and me who live a period.
When Jesus said that "before Abraham was, I AM," the Jewish religious leaders were greatly upset, and rightly so if Jesus was just a man. They accused him of blasphemy, making himself to be God and debasing the sacred name. For those who know Jesus is God Incarnate, it is not blasphemy but an appropriate use of the "family name." Alpha and Omega are the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet. God is before all things and after all things.
This truth is, and can not be denied even by Satan and his evil bunch. This scripture along with Revelation 5:13 are the greatest deliverance scriptures. Nothing can and will stand before this truth. Speak this truth to everything that puts it head before the Lord and it will not exist.
[ Prayer for the Day ]
Father, we have little sense of Eternity but we know You are the uncreated Creator; the one without beginning or end; the infinite and Eternal One. Reveal your glory to us and increase our faith in You; the Almighty God. Amen.
[ Reference Scripture ]
13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.
[ Scriptures for Deliverance Revelation 1:8 with 5:13 ]
My Lord is the Alpha and the Omega, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty. Every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, will bow their knee and say 'Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sit upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever'.
