I AM ALPHA AND OMEGA | GOD’S MESSAGE TODAY | GOD MESSAGE FOR ME | GOD MESSAGE NOW

today God’s message is a reminder of his

eternal nature encapsulated in the

Declaration I am Alpha and Omega the

beginning and the

end it serves as a profound reflection

on the omnipotence and omnipresence of

the

Divine through this message we are urged

to contemplate the entirety of our

existence acknowledging that God’s

presence encompasses both our Origins

and our our ultimate

destination in embracing the truth of

God’s Timeless sovereignty we find

Solace and strength to navigate life’s

journey as Alpha and Omega God is not

only the originator of all things but

also the culmination of every

story in this acknowledgment we are

encouraged to surrender our worries and

uncertainties trusting in his unwavering

guidance and provision through

throughout every phase of Our

Lives then I saw a new Heaven and a new

Earth for the first Heaven and the first

Earth had passed away and the sea was no

more and I saw the holy city New

Jerusalem coming down out of Heaven from

God prepared as a bride adorned for her

husband and I heard a loud voice from

the throne saying behold the Tabernacle

of God with men

he will dwell with them and they will be

his people and God himself will be with

them he will wipe away every tear from

their eyes and death will be no more and

there will be no more mourning nor

crying nor pain for the former things

have passed

away and he who sat on the throne said

behold I make all things

new and he said right for these words

are certain and

true and he said to me it’s

done I am the Alpha and the Omega the

beginning and the

end to him who is thirsty I will give

from the spring of the Water of Life

freely he who overcomes will inherit

these things I will be his God and he

will be my

son but the Cowardly the unbelieving the

abominable the murderers the sexually

immoral the sorcerers the idolators and

all liars their portion will be in the

lake that burns with fire and brimstone

which is the second

death in The Book of Revelation

God identifies himself as the Alpha

and the

Omega Alpha is the first letter of the

Greek alphabet and Omega is the last

letter of the alphabet that in other

words God is the beginning and the

end God is not talking about alphabets

here he talks about

reality God is completely the beginning

and completely the

end everything that is ultimately Finds

Its origins in him and everything will

end with him one way or

another Isaiah says it this way thus

says the Lord king of Israel and his

Redeemer the Lord of hosts I am the

first and I am the last and besides me

there is no God

in other words since everything

comes from God and nothing will survive

him then God has no final competitor and

apart from me there is no God a God has

the first and last word of all

history any attempt to to have the last

word will

fail Pottery has no beginning other than

with the Potter himself and will

ultimately serve The Potter’s

purposes

Alpha I cannot encourage you enough to

meditate on the amazing truth that God

is the absolute

Alpha find time to let the truth sink in

that God is the first the

beginning before him there was nothing

there was no before him think about that

for millions and billions and trillions

of infinite years God existed and never

had a

beginning he is the

beginning from eternity to Eternity he

is God Psalms

and he always has

been we may Marvel that God is infinite

Eternal and unchanging in his is Justice

wisdom power goodness and

truth but when you take a moment to

think about the fact that he never chose

to be like that and that no one else

chose it for him either it’s

sobering God’s righteousness wisdom

power goodness and Truth are Eternal

reality the character of God is not a

product of

reality it is reality God is not the

product of multiple

possibilities everything is produced by

him it determines all the

possibilities God is not a piece of

reality that can be assembled with other

pieces he is the first the last and the

universal reality in him we have life

movement and

being Act

Omega but the truth I want us to focus

on this morning is that God is

Omega I think that’s the focal point in

Revelation

the phrase I am the Alpha and the

Omega the beginning and the end is found

in a passage whose subject is the end of

the story this text therefore focuses on

God as being the Omega of all things

what does God is the Omega or the end

mean let’s read verses

– and he who sat on the throne said

behold I make all things

new and he said right for these words

are certain and

true and he said to me it’s

done I am the Alpha and the Omega the

beginning and the

end to him who who is thirsty I will

give from the spring of the Water of

Life

freely he who overcomes will inherit

these things I will be his God and he

will be my

son but the Cowardly the unbelieving the

abominable the murderers the sexually

immoral the sorcerers the idolators and

all liars their portion will be in the

lake that burns with fire and brimstone

which is the second

death how God is the end for those who

thirst for

him this text clearly shows that God is

the Omega or the end in two different

ways to him who thirsts verse says he

is the end in the sense that he will be

the source of their life

forever he will be their God and they

will be his children and will enjoy the

inheritance received from from God

forever he was the source of the water

of their life in creation and he will be

the source of the water of their life in

consumption for him who overcomes for

him who thirsts God is not the beginning

in the end like a river that arises from

a spring and ends in an

ocean an ocean is fed and filled by the

rivers that flow into

it God is not fed and filled by the

thirsty Saints who come to him in the

end no for the Thirsty God is the

beginning and the end like a desert

Caravan that begins its Journey from an

oasis and ends at an oasis God is a

source of the Water of Life in the

beginning and he is a source of the

Water of Life In The End

forever how is God the end for those who

do not thirst for

him

there is another group of people that

verse refers

to they are those who do not thirst for

God for these God is also the Omega but

not in the same

way God is their end in the sense that

ultimately they will meet God as

judge their beginning is in the Oasis of

God’s

life then they take the Forbidden

southern route through the shallow

currents of faithlessness far from the

narrow path of

God but all roads lead to

God finally they arrive on the other

side of the

desert and they meet

God but instead of an oasis of eternal

life they face a lake of fire eternal

hell there are are many Christians

without mentioning names who reject

Christianity who do not believe that

hell is

eternal they don’t believe the Lake of

Fire is anyone’s

Omega some reject this idea entirely

others say it is a temporary place of

purification in both cases they say

everyone will be saved in the

end God has the final word and that word

will always be merciful to Every

Creature Omega will mean merciful for

all in the end not fire and

brimstone but verse does not hide the

terrible reality but the Cowardly the

unbelieving the abominable the murderers

the sexually immoral the sorcerers the

idolators and all liars their portion

will be in the fiery lake of fire and

brimstone which is the second

death two other verses in the Book of

Revelation make it clear that this

judgment is

eternal Revelation says and the

devil who deceived them was thrown into

the lake of fire and brimstone where the

Beast and the false prophet

are and they will be tormented day and

night forever and

ever lest we think that this eternal

punishment is only for the Devil

Revelation years old says if

anyone worships the Beast and His Image

and receives a mark on his forehead or

on his hand he shall

drink also of the wine of the wrath of

God poured out without mixture into the

cup of his wrath and he shall be

tormented with fire and brimstone before

the Holy Angels and before the

lamb and the smoke of their torment

Rises forever and ever and they have no

rest day or night who worship the Beast

and His Image and whoever receives the

mark of his

name infinite Omega for all God is an

infinite Omega to every man whether a

spring of the water of eternal life or a

great vat of Wrath and a lake of

fire we should constantly remember that

our lives end with

God he may seem distant now but Paul

said to the mockers of Athens although

he is not far from each of us act

it is never beyond the reach of the

Thirsty and though it seems to be as far

away as the Stars to the one who is

satisfied in the end it will be quite

real to every man woman and child

gloriously real to the one who thirsts

and terrifyingly real to the one one who

is

satisfied I am the Alpha and the Omega

says our Lord the beginning and the end

the source of the water of eternal life

for one and a lake of fire for the

other our life in this world is

extremely important because what you

think of God here will determine how you

will meet him in the

end I pray that God will give us the

eyes to see the stunning alternatives on

the brink of Eternity

I pray that we will then be unable to

say and return to lukewarmness even

though you know you are saved in the

Lifeboat with the captain the lightning

the lightning the M high waves the

darkness and the storm should fill you

with a feeling of deep shuttering awe

and a trembling gratitude that you were

saved from the

waters it is no small thing to be alive

between the Alpha and Omega om GA of our

creator the great

division let’s return to the image of

the

desert everything in life begins with

the creative power of God he is the

alpha it is the Oasis at the beginning

of our

life we all start in the same

place but sooner or later a division

occurs and we need to know which

division it is because in the end it all

comes down to

that one person meets the Omega source

of the Water of Life and the other meets

the Omega Lake of

Fire the one who is

[Music]

thirsty The Book of Revelation

and seven uses two words to

describe the person who encounters God

as a source of the Water of

Life verse says to him who is thirsty

I will give from the spring of the Water

of Life

freely the first characteristic of the

person who will encounter God as a

source of water instead of fire is that

he is

thirsty Revelation

is a beautiful invitation to the

Thirsty and the spirit and the bride say

come and let him who hears say

come and let him who thirsts come

whoever wants may take the Water of Life

freely so when God says that he will

give the water from the spring of life

to the Thirsty he means that he will

give it to the one who desires it those

who love its taste who crave it want and

who have turned their backs on the

drinks of the soul of the

world When God says that thirst is a

condition of Salvation he does not mean

that everyone who would avoid hell and

live forever will be

saved it would then be

everyone everyone without exception is

thirsty in this

sense God means that anyone whose Souls

thirst is truly for God and not for the

praise power and pleasures of the this

world will be

saved those whose thirst has turned them

from the shallow streams of sin to the

deep pool Oasis on the other side of the

desert these are the ones to whom God

will give the Water of Life to drink

forever the

conquerors the other word in verse

that describes the one who meets God as

a spring and not as a fire is the word

will

overcome he who overcomes will inherit

these things I will be his God and he

will be my son the word will overcome is

used a dozen times in the Book of

Revelation to refer to the victory of

the Saints which brings them the

blessing of eternal

life for example in the Book of

Revelation and Jesus said to the

church in Smyrna be faithful unto death

and I will give you the Crown of

Life he who overcomes will not have to

suffer the second

death remember that in apocalyptic text

the second death is the Lake of

Fire so this text says the same

thing if we overcome we will not suffer

overcoming is defined for us as being

faithful unto death be faithful unto

death and I will give you the Crown of

Life to overcome means to obtain victory

over the forces that tempt us to be

unfaithful to

Christ see also ver and

the Conquering

thirst if we join the state of thirst

with the state of overcoming then it

looks something like this there is a

battle within each of

us the struggle is between thirsting for

God and thirsting for anything else

if our souls thirst for God as a deer

thirsts for streams of water if we have

tasted enough of the beauty and love and

power of Christ that we forget the

things behind us and pursue him if we

let us deny our thirst and take up our

cross and thirst for Christ then God

will come to meet us on the other side

of the desert and will be to us a source

of the Water of Life fully satisfying

forever in other other words if we

overcome all competitors for our thirst

and become satisfied with Christ we will

inherit eternal

life thirst for Christ must overcome

thirst for this world and all the things

it offers Those Who Have Not Conquered

thirst for this

world those who will meet God on the

other side of the desert as a lake of

fire instead of a spring of the Water of

Life are people who have not conquered

the thirst of the world

world to them Christ was no more

attractive than cast or

oil to some it tasted

Bland to others he was

bitter but the world ah the world that

has

taste and because of the deliberate

cancer of their spiritual tongue they

found no satisfaction in

Christ but in what

way look at verse

God calls them cowards and unbelievers

back in verse and Jesus had said

to the church do not be afraid of what

you will

suffer be faithful unto death and I will

give you the Crown of

Life don’t be a coward have

faith quench your thirst for Life

security and happiness in me do not give

into the thirst for Earth ly life

security

autonomy but the people in did not

heed Jesus warning in and

they were cowardly and

unbelieving the thirst for this world

overcomes the thirst for Christ and so

their fate will be the lake of fire then

God goes on to describ some of them as

abominable that is people who craved

hidden and indecent things

things murderers people who were thirsty

for revenge or who wanted to get rid of

someone unchaste people who crave sexual

pleasures in ways that Christ

forbids enchanters people who craved

magical powers and the depths of Satan

Revelation

idolators people who thirsted for

conciliatory gods instead of a God who

said I am the Alpha and the Omega and

all the Liars people who thirsted not

for the future that God would bring them

through the Integrity of Faith but for

the future that they could create

through all kinds of

deception in other words those who will

face God as a terrible Lake of Fire

instead of a Fountain of Life are those

who have not conquered these worldly

thirsts if they had had any thirst for

Christ it had been swallowed up by love

for this

world God will not give precious water

from the spring of the Water of Life to

those who have never developed a

conquering thirst for him if you are

somewhat thirsty for Christ With all

sincerity I strongly advise you to Stir

It Up blessed are those who thirst for

they alone will be

satisfied create and increase a thirst

for for

God so I will conclude by trying to

create for some an increase for others a

thirst for

God free water for the

Thirsty notice that in verse the water

of life that God gives is

free to him who is thirsty I will give

from the spring of the Water of Life

freely you have to be thirsty to get it

but thirst has no PRI price or Merit in

anyone’s eyes no one can buy or sell

with the currency of

thirst thirst is not

work it’s simply another way of

describing

Faith a feeling of emptiness that turns

to Christ to fill it when a person

crosses a desert and arrives at the

other end of the Oasis panting and hears

to the Thirsty I will give water no one

in this situation would say to the owner

of the Oasis you are a tough

[Music]

negotiator he doesn’t

negotiate it’s not

hard it’s free for those who are

thirsty God loves to quench The Thirst

of the Thirsty who comes to him for the

Water of Life and let him who thirsts

come whoever wants may take the Water of

Life

freely your possible meeting with

God remember that the one who offers the

water is called Alpha and Omega the

beginning and the

end this means that if you try to quench

your Soul’s thirst in a way that is not

in God you will end up crossing paths

with God anyway and will have to explain

your infinite insulting choices

preferring the currents of sin to the

water of

life it is an infinite sin to reject the

infinitely valuable God as if something

else were more valuable the advantage of

being a child of

God note that in verse The Water of

Life is the same as the reward of

becoming a child of

God He Who overcomes will inherit these

things I will be his God and he will be

my

son being a child of God is an advantage

that has no

equal this means that you become an heir

to all that God has everything God has

will be available to you all creation

will be at your

service he will not withhold any good

things from those who thirst for him and

thus prove themselves to be his

children like the father in the parable

of the Prodigal Son God will welcome us

home to his eternal Oasis hugging us

tightly in giving us a

kiss he will put a ring on our finger

put a garment on our shoulders and shoes

on our

feet he will prepare the most tender

slice of beef for us and Seed us at a

banquet That Never

Ends all this just for those who are

thirsty when God will wipe away every

tear consider the infinitely sweet truth

of verse he will wipe away every tear

from their eyes and death will be no

more and there will be no more Mourning

nor crying nor pain for the first things

disappeared the one who is the Alpha and

the Omega God Almighty is committed to

taking away every pain every threat of

death and everything that makes you

cry every cause of depression anxiety

and guilt and every hindrance to Joy

wonder and innocent enchantment will

disappear in their place he will put

infinite Joy that will surpass your

happiest

vacation and all this just for the

Thirsty the light in the New

Jerusalem and finally meditate on the

image of the New Jerusalem in verses

and

I saw no temple in the city for the

Lord God Almighty is his Temple as is

the

Lamb the city needs neither the sun nor

the moon to light it for the glory of

God enlightens him and the lamb is his

torch God is truly the Alpha and the

Omega the beginning and the

end at the beginning he says let there

be

light and for thousands of years the sun

has risen every day to make us thirsty

for the light behind the

light and in the end God will satisfy

that thirst with an experience you

unique to His indescribably Brilliant

Beauty as Isaiah says it will no longer

be the Sun that will serve as your light

during the day nor the Moon that will

Enlighten you with its light but the

Lord will be your light forever your God

will be your

glory your sun will no longer set and

your moon will no longer be darkened for

the Lord will be your light forever and

the days of your mour will be passed all

all paths lead to

God you will encounter it in the form of

light and life or fire and

torment to him who is thirsty I will

give from the spring of the Water of

Life

freely and the spirit said

come and let him who hears say

come and let him who thirsts come

whoever wants may take the Water of Life

freely re revelation
