Revelation 1:8 - “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beg & the End," says the Lord…
The doctor has just told u that u have an incurable disease. The X-rays & blood tests confirm it.Your worst fears have come true & u feel like your future has been sealed.
My friend, the doctor’s report is not final. Jesus declares 2 u, “I Am the Alpha & the Omega, theBeginning & the End.” (Revelation 1:8) He has the first word as well as the final word in your situation. The experts & medical reports don’t!
Alpha & omega are the first & last letters of the Greek alphabet. But Jesus did not speak Greek.He spoke Aramaic or Hebrew. So He would have said, “I am the Aleph & the Tav.” Aleph & Tavare the first & last letters of the Hebrew alphabet. So what Jesus is declaring 2 us is this: "I have the first word in your situation. And I have the final word in your situation!”
Each Hebrew letter has a corresponding picture. Interestingly, aleph is associated w/an ox & Tav, a cross. Together, they make up a beautiful picture of what Jesus did 4 us — He is the sacrificial“animal” on the cross. It was 4 us that He suffered, bled & died.
When Jesus hung on the cross, He took our infirmities & bore our sicknesses. (Matthew 8:17). That is why your sickness does not have the final word in your life. Jesus does, bcoz He took your sickness upon His body & paid 4 your healing w/His blood.
When Jesus hung on the cross, He took our curse. (Galatians 3:13) We were supposed 2b cursed bcoz of our sins, but He took our place & the curse fell on Him. Today, we take His place & His blessings fall on us!
So why settle 4 the curse of sickness or even poverty when the price 4 your healing & prosperity has been paid by Jesus? Sickness & poverty do not have the final word in your life. Jesus does bcoz He redeemed u from every curse!
