“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

 

*          *          *          *          *

My God is Eternal.

*          *          *          *          *

 

He has no beginning and no end He is the only uncreated being in existence.

 

*          *          *          *          *


What this means to me is that He does not live in my realm of reality.


At this point in my existence, I am still separated from the full reality of who He is.


As scripture says: 


…“I see through a glass darkly.” 


1 Corinthians 13:12

 

It is Jesus who gives me comfort in saying: 


“…if you have seen me you have seen the Father,”


John 14:8-9

and He is the only door into this Eternal Kingdom.


 

Amazingly, this separation is painted in scripture as a


“…twinkling of an eye.”


1 Corinthians 15:52


This “twinkling of an eye” separates my time realm, 

the place where I am right now physically,

from where He is in His Eternal realm.


Again, Jesus is the only door between the two places. 

 

This door always includes His Cross.

 

Scripture also says:

 

...He knew me before I was conceived.


Jeremiah 1:4-5

 

How amazing!


And also that


“…I am a alien and stranger here on earth,”


1 Peter 2:11

someday returning to Him, living with Him in His Eternal Kingdom.


My God is:


The Alpha and the Omega,

The First and the Last

The Beginning and the End.


Revelation 22:13


It is my heart’s desire to see my Eternal God

and in Matthew 5:8 it says:

 

…Blessed are the pure in heart,

    for they will see God.”


 

Therefore, I choose to purify my heart.


What Matthew

5:8
  is saying is that as I purify my heart, I will experience Him.


My God is Eternal.
