Advent 2022 – Day 29: Revelation 1:8, 22:12-13

“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”
“Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense with me, to repay each one for what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”

Revelation 1:8, 22:12-13 ESV

At Advent, we look back at why Jesus had to come, that He came, and then that He will come again.

Jesus is the Eternal Son of God who was with the Father “before” Creation, through whom all things were created.

We rebelled against our Creator, thinking we could be like Him or had no need for Him.

Yet, God came to us, paying for our sins while reserving wrath for those who refuse to believe.

And Jesus is coming again.

He came as a baby, becoming like us to grow up and save us, and we remember this.

But we also remember that this Man is also our God – truly man and truly God at once and completely.

He died on a cross for us, but He arose again from the dead proving that this Jesus is our God of wrath and grace.

And He is returning soon in His wrath and grace to finally and completely fully redeem this world to Himself.

May we seek the Lord who has defeated sin and death, has saved us, and is coming back again in glory.

Hallelujah and Amen.

Come, Lord Jesus!
