True and Faithful

Click here for the audio version

When speaking of all with the exclusion of none, it has been common to use the figure of speech, “…everything from A to Z!” Recent generations have not been the first to use figurative references with similar meanings. For example, the northernmost city of the land of Israel was Dan, while near the southern limit of the territory lay Beersheba. Therefore, when intending to include all Israel, whether literally or figuratively, one might utter the phrase “…from Dan to Beersheba!” A far more profound and meaningful expression of this type makes use of the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet, Alpha and Omega. At the Twenty-First of Revelation, the Lord described Himself to John as Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. By this, the Lord shows Himself to span all time, and, as eternal, His existence has no limit either prior to the commencement of time nor after its conclusion. These words, the Lord said, are true and faithful.
