THEME: I AM
“And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me, “Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last. I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death.”
-John had an encountered with Christ Himself in this book of Revelation & fell in reverence to Him at His feet as dead. Jesus reveals that He is the First & the Last, He who lives & was dead & lives forevermore. Christ holds the keys of hades & death, to set us free from eternal condemnation & give us everlasting life through His grace. We are called to live according to His will as He will come again to rule forever for all glory, honor, power, dominion & strength belongs to Him.
-Christianity is centered on the knowledge of Christ for who He is & having a personal relationship with Him. The I AM statements shared throughout scripture reveal Jesus’ sovereignty & deity, & are geared towards enhancing our belief system in Him. Jesus introduces & makes known to us His nature when He says that “I am who I am, I am the bread of life, I am the light of the world, I am the Door, I am the resurrection & the life, I am the way the truth & the life, I am the good Shepherd & I am the true vine, be holy because I am holy & I am the First & the Last”. These statements remind us that Christ is all we need in our lives & nothing can separate us from His love. We are required to always believe in Him & hope in His promise that we may find rest in Him.
You are the Alpha & Omega, the Beginning & the End Jesus, Who is; Who was & Who is to come, the Almighty. We give You thanks & praise Lord with all our hearts & tell of all Your wonderful deeds. We are glad & rejoice in You O Most High & sing the praises of Your name. Our Father who at in heaven; hallowed be Your name; Your Kingdom come; Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread & forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptations but deliver us from evil; for thine is the Kingdom the power & the glory; forever & ever. Amen
