Bible Notes

Revelation 1:8 (03.12.19)

Revelation 1:8 NIV
“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.”

Today is the 3rd day of Advent, but what is Advent? The word Advent comes from the Latin word adventus, which means “coming” or “arrival.” So what, or who is coming? The obvious answer is Jesus in his incarnation, his birth. But there’s another aspect to it, the word also points towards Jesus’ return, his second coming.

Jesus, we celebrate your coming to be born as one of us!
Jesus, we enjoy your Presence with us by your Spirit!
Jesus, we look forward to your coming again!
