Revelation 22:13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.
Jesus is the Alpha, the First; Jesus is the Omega, the Last; Jesus is the Beginning and the End. In our walk of faith, we take our first step and last step in Jesus, and He is every step along the way.
