Jesus is the Alpha and Omega. The One who was, and is, and is to come. Our God is eternal. There is nothing that happened before Him. There is nothing that happens now without His knowing. There is nothing that will ever be that is not already known by God. Even more, He is the One who will finish all things. No thing we start was made without His knowledge. No ending comes that finishes His work. In all things, the Story of God continues and is only ever continuing. This world will crumble and pass away. And yet God will remain. And we faithful with Him for eternity in the New Heaven and New Earth. Praise, honor and glory to God in the Highest for ever and ever. Amen.
