Verse of the day
“And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; ‘These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the beginning of the creation of God:
The Bible is filled with promises from God. It holds so much hope of great things God has in store for His children here and in eternity, the mystery of which Apostle Paul often spoke passionately about in the epistles. The men of old saw a “shadow” of this, caught a glimpse of the future and cried out, “what is man!” We are such a fortunate generation and yet many of us scarcely know how blessed we are.
When Jesus introduced Himself to the church of Laodicea, the last Church He addressed and the Church symbolic of the last days, He called Himself the AMEN. This is such a beautiful expression of what He is saying in our times. As much as the last days are filled with perils, they are also filled with such brightness of God’s grace.
Jesus is our Amen. He is the expression of all that God wants to work in us, the fullness of His promises and eternal purpose for us. In these last days, we are moving closer to His glorious appearance and seeing even more clearly the fulfillment of God’s promises through Christ.
Every promise and purpose of God from start to finish is not left unattended. His purposes and promises in the Old and New covenant find expression in Christ. And oh, how amazing this is!
2 Corinthians 1:20 tells us that in Christ, all the promises of God are a resounding “YES” and “AMEN”. No wonder He is called The Faithful, because He is the expression of God’s faithfulness to us. He is the True Witness whose expression of the Father to us is ever true.
In our text for today, we see the revelation of Jesus as the “beginning of the creation of God” and this is the sum of God’s promises and purpose. BBE puts it this way, ”…the head of God’s new order:” The climax of all God’s promises is that He is setting a new order, a new creation with Christ being the head and the beginning of this.
To Him be all the glory!
