“ ‘I am the Alpha and the Omega,’ ” says the Lord God, ‘who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.’ ” Revelation 1:8
We learn so many “firsts” in school:
Like A is first, then B.
We learn many “lasts” as well:
Like X then Y and Z.
We learn who led our country first,
Like President Washington.
We learn who formed our nation’s laws,
And our country’s famous sons.
But the Lord God said that He is first.
And we should learn that well.
For He was here before all else,
And He will never fail.
He will stay until the end,
And He’s in charge of all.
He was, and is, and is coming back
Can you hear His trumpet call?
If He’s in our heart, we know,
We’ll be with Him always.
For we will live ten thousand years,
Plus days and days and days.
Fun fact: The Lord God will be here for eternity … more days than we can count!
Questions: Who was first before anything or anybody else? What is the word for last?
Hint: The answer is in our Bible verse.
