Revelation 1:8 says “I am the Alpha and the Omega” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.” This morning as we look at this verse we will find that the hope of Jesus is not some intangible thing that we have to hope someday comes true. The hope of Jesus is right here, right now. Jesus was the hope back then, the hope today, and the hope for tomorrow. Christian hope is powerful because it is certain. Our hope is driven by faith in the living God who is, who was, and who is come.
