Over the weekend, as I spent time studying the Word of God, I kept hearing a word…actually, a name. The name I kept hearing was…Omega.
The Bible says Jesus is the Alpha and Omega, the first and last, the beginning and the end.
It is Jesus who begins to work in us, Jesus, the Alpha.
Philippians 1:6 says, Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.
If you are like me today, you have dreams and visions that God has put in you. They didn’t come by accident, He put them there. He caused them to be born in you. And perhaps, like me, you have not seen the complete fulfillment of all those dreams and visions. It is the Alpha who began this… and rest assured, Omega will complete it.
Jesus is the beginning and the end. He doesn’t start something in people without completing it. If you continue to stand with Him and His Word, it will be fulfilled.
Isaiah 66:9 says, Shall I bring to the time of birth, and not cause delivery?” says the Lord. God is not a cruel God; He is a good God. What He began, He will bring to a place of delivery.
Hebrews 12:1-2 says, Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
We see from this scripture that Jesus is the author and the FINISHER of our faith. He will bring our faith to a place of fruition and completion. However, this scripture also shows us we have a part to play.
First, we must lay aside every weight or sin that so easily ensnares us. What is weighing us down can be different for everyone. It may be a weight of sin such as unforgiveness or bitterness. Or it may be a weight of a stronghold in your mind – a thought that doesn’t align with what God has for you.
Next, we must run the race with endurance, refusing to give up. This is not always easy. Some days we are all tempted to quit. Finally, we must, at all times, look to Jesus. Let Him be our guide as to how to walk through the transition time between the promise and fulfillment.
When He went to the cross, He didn’t receive the shame of that act, instead He looked toward the prize that was set before Him. He looked only at the end result. At the promise of God. In that, He found and kept joy.
We must do the same thing. Once God has planted a seed in us. A vision or a dream. We must lay aside everything that would hinder us, look to Jesus, and look to the promise God has given us. When we do that, we will make it to the other side, Omega will complete what He has begun. Think about it. In the Bible when Jesus said, “we are going to the other side”, regardless of storms that came their way, they arrived on the other side, every single time.
For all these reasons, I was excited when I began to hear the Spirit of God say to me… “Omega.” To me this says, He is going to bring to completion all He has vowed and promised me. But that’s not only for me, it’s for all of us.
I believe Omega is on the scene and He is going to bring to fruition all He has promised you. Keep looking to Jesus. Continue standing in faith. Keep your joy by remaining in His presence. And trust, fully trust, in the One who is faithful…the Alpha AND the Omega.
