Last words are important words. They can provide a window into a person’s soul. Revelation chapter 22 contains the last words about the last days. Among them, Jesus makes these powerful statements about His own identity.
“I am the Alpha and Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end” (22:13).
“I am the root and the descendant of David” (22:16a).
“I am the . . . bright morning star” (22:16b).
The lamb that looks like a lion and the lion that looks like a lamb also said not once, not twice, but three times, “Behold, I am coming soon”(22:7, 12, 20). His last words couldn’t have been clearer. Jesus is coming soon! Are you ready?
