“God Is Always First and Will Surely Be Last 神永遠是創始的，也必定是成終的“（Revelation 啓示録 1:7-8）
‘Look, he is coming with the clouds,’ and ‘every eye will see him, even those who pierced him’; and all peoples on earth ‘will mourn because of him.’ So shall it be! Amen. ‘I am the Alpha and the Omega,’ says the Lord God, ‘who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.’
God determines the time or the place of man’s birth. Man’s volitional life begins when he is aware of and accepts his being. Man is in God’s hands: God was there first in making Adam a living soul but he then sinned and wrecked his whole life. Adam’s whole future peace lay in that God was still there after Adam had sinned. Many people including Christians often look lightly or even ignore God’s complete sovereignty and omniscience over the whole of history, from the very beginning to the very end of time itself. It would be great wisdom for us to start living in the light of God being the first and the last!
Prayer: God of Trinity, your reign is complete. You can see the beginning from the end. Nothing comes as a surprise to you. You cannot be caught out. You know how everything will turn out. Human history is in your hand. Your rule is forever and we put our trust to you. Amen.
