Who He Is January 18

Scripture Selection: Psalm 18:1-2, 30, 46; Prov. 18:10; Rev. 22:13, 16

Food for Thought: Prov. 18:10

It’s enough to make you want to raise up your hands or fall on your knees in reverence to God when you think about Him and Who He is. He is your Fortress: the safe, fortified place where you are free from Satan. He is your Rock: a firm, unwavering, never-changing, solid place on which to stand securely. He is your High Tower, which not only fortifies, but also allows you to see the enemy coming from a long distance away. You’ve only got to call out His name, and you’ll be there.

That’s why He is, among so many things, your Salvation. Salvation from what? From all the harm the enemy inflicted on you in the past, from anything the enemy might attempt to inflict on you in the present, and from hell’s torment in the future. He who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved!

Jesus refers to Himself as the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. Follow Him, the bright Morning Star, and His mighty power will be in your life throughout eternity, manifesting the glory and victory that He has already won for you. All this—just for knowing Who He is!

    the Alpha and the Omega

    I once had a conversation with my dad who is not a Christian, and pointed out to him that the whole story about ‘the king’ in Judges (Israel had no king, suffered chaos etc), Samuel (the people reject God as king, get Saul), to Kings (a procession of unsavory guys) to the New Testament (Jesus the fulfillment of all the prophesies, but not as the Pharisees wanted). He, who’d read the Bible, was quite surprised by this. I went away sad, it was right out of Corinthians. Non Christians simply ‘do not get’ the way that the OT and NT both point towards Christ as a seamless picture.

      No, they don’t. He always was. Also from Corinthians….

      2 Corinthians 3:14 But their minds were made dull, for to this day the same veil remains when the old covenant is read. It has not been removed, because only in Christ is it taken away.
