The End Is Near

The End Is Near“I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.” (Revelation 1:8)

There is no doubt we are living in the last days. One only needs to read the headlines and look around to see prophecies being fulfilled all around us.

Who would ever have thought that legislation would be necessary to affirm that marriage is a union between a man and woman – it actually sounds absurd! The heart-wrenching cry of unconcerned mothers demanding the right to abort their babies … wars and rumors of wars, terrorism, car bombings, nation against nation, world powers rallying for control, nuclear testing, earthquakes, volcanoes, drastic weather changes! All of these point to one thing … the soon appearing of the Lord, “which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty!”

I love the definition of the word “Almighty” … the sovereign, the omnipotent, the absolute and all-ruling one! Ah yes! He is the Sovereign of the Universe and in Him lies the supreme right to do as He wills! Yet even in His absolute sovereignty, He wills to keep His covenant with mankind to be our God throughout all the generations … our Almighty, our Omnipotent, our Absolute and All-Ruling One!

The wonderful news is that even in the midst of all that is wrong in this world, we have no need to fear or dread for we are exhorted in this particular passage that as He was in the beginning, as He is with us today, so shall He be with us in the end. His promise is that He will never leave us nor forsake us.

Cling to His promises today and be assured of His presence in the midst of all life’s circumstances in these last days. Keep watching for Him … “your redemption draweth nigh”!

Lord, Almighty God, I admit that there are many times when fear tries to steal my heart away from the assurances I have found in You. You, O Lord, are truly my Alpha and Omega and everything in between! Help me keep my eyes fixed on You as I walk hand in hand with You in these last days. Lord, no matter how difficult things become, my heart belongs to You, my gaze is fixed on You, my desire is only toward You. Come quickly, Lord Jesus! Amen!

“And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” (Luke 21:28)
