“He said to me: “It is finished. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life.” -Revelation 21:6
All Christians should be looking forward to the consummation of all things. That is, when Jesus Christ the Messiah returns again, destroys the wicked kingdoms of this world, His faithful people are gathered in, truth is triumphant, and He sets up His eternal kingdom upon the earth as the King of kings, and Lord of lords. His great work is accomplished, His people enter into their abodes of blessedness, and the arrangement of human affairs is complete. What a glorious future we have in store for us!
That is what Jesus speaks about in Revelation 21:6, “It is finished. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End.” The attributes implied in this language makes it clear that Jesus is divine. He is saying, “The setting up a kingdom in the lost world began in Me, and it ends in Me. The glorious and triumphant King.”
To Him who is thirsty.
Even now, He is still drawing people to Himself. Are you thirsty for God’s salvation? There is still time to receive it today. He offers it freely (at no cost). All you have to do is receive it by faith in what Jesus has already accomplished for you on the cross. Salvation is compared with a fountain that flows in abundance, where all may freely satisfy their thirst, if they choose to do so.
If you are already a born-again follower of Jesus Christ, rejoice and keep yourself focused on the future consummation of all things. If you have never received Jesus as your Savior and Lord, today is the day of salvation. Pray right now and ask Him to forgive you of your sins, and commit your life to Him as your Savior and Lord.
