“Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last.I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.” – Jesus Christ.
“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty” – Jesus Christ.
Isaiah 40:3 speaks about preparing the way for the LORD (Yahweh). When we compare this verse with Mark 1:3 we see that Jesus is the LORD who had the way prepared for Him by John the Baptist.
Joel 2:32 states whoever calls upon the Name of the LORD (Yahweh) will be saved. This verse is quoted by Peter in Acts 2:21, and by Paul in Romans 10:13. Both apostles are referring to Jesus as the LORD.
In Isaiah 44:6, the LORD (Yahweh) refers to Himself as “the First and the Last”. In Revelation 1:8 and 17, Jesus similarly refers to Himself as “the Alpha and the Omega” and “the First and the Last”.
In Zechariah 12:10 the LORD (Yahweh) is speaking and says, “they will look on Me whom they have pierced’. This verse from Zechariah appears again in Revelation 1:7 and is about Jesus Christ.
JESUS CHRIST IS LORD. HE IS GOD ALMIGHTY. Blessed are those who have not seen Him but yet believe.
Dear Believers in Christ, may you be blessed according to the revelation and knowledge you have of Jesus Christ. His divine power has granted to us ‘all things’ that pertain to life and godliness, ‘through the knowledge of Him’ who called us to His own glory and excellence. Amen.
