Alpha and Omega
Thank you for your Word. It is light. It is life. It is hope. It refreshes our souls. It soothes our hurts. It gives us comfort and peace. It leads and guides. It gives instruction. It gives counsel. It gives wisdom. It gives us what we need.
Your Word. Oh Holy One. It was in the beginning. It has been there throughout time. The kindness of your grace and peace overflows from the throne. Jesus Christ the faithful witness. The first born among the dead. The ruling king who rules over the kings of the earth. You! Most Holy One. You have appointed us as a kingdom of priests. And we worship you and give you praise.
You are the Alpha and the Omega. The Aleph and the Tav. The beginning and the ending. You know all about it. You know how it started and how it will end. We call down the excellent and majestic power of the Most High God. Down to the earth. Down to the mess that your creation finds itself in. Come and dwell among us. Don’t take your presence from us. Come to us. Come and dwell. Selah.
Oh Mighty One. We appear to be spiraling out of control into a dark abyss. Can you rescue us? Can you save us from ourselves? Save us from domination by the evil ones? Save us from faulty election results? Save us from more impeachment hearings? Save us from constant lies and deception? Save us from a hostile takeover? Save the unborn? Save the meaning of anything sacred? Save the children? Can anyone save us? Can anyone break the seal and open the scroll? Is there anyone?
Oh yes! Jesus! You are worthy! Your Word speaks! His head and his hair were white like wool, as white as snow. And his eyes were like flames of fire. His feet were like polished bronze refined in a furnace, and his voice thundered like mighty ocean waves.
We say! Jesus! Son of Man and Son of God. Come and thunder over our enemies! Thunder like the mighty ocean waves. Thunder through our skies. Send lightning strikes to light up the sky and ferret out the enemy. Come! Oh come and thunder out victory over America. Thunder out victory over our President. Thunder out victory over injustice. Over abortion. Over covid. Thunder like the roaring of waves over us today. Shake, rattle and roll the enemies of morality, righteousness and freedom!
Your Word speaks again to us! When I saw him, I fell at his feet as if I were dead. But he laid his right hand on me and said, Don’t be afraid! I am the First and the Last. I am the living one. I died, but look! I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and the grave.
Hallelujah! You have conquered death, hell and the grave. You took the keys! You still have the keys! Kick the devil out and lock the door behind him! And kick fear out the door too! You have already conquered fear. We stand unafraid, bold and secure on your Word.
We say! Blessed be the Word of the Lord. We say! Blessed be the Name of the Lord. Jesus! The beginning and the end. The Almighty One!
So be it!
