with two comings and two roles, 2,000 years apart. According

to prophecy in Daniel 9:26, at the first coming, the Messiah is

cut off (dies). Jesus’ death after His first coming demands a

resurrection and a leaving in order for there to be a second

coming, which will occur at the end (Matt. 24:3).

As we will see, the End is associated with the second com-

ing of the Messiah. Follow now as we step through the incredi-

ble, interconnected relationship of the Last, God Almighty, the

Omega, the End, and the Messiah.

The Last Is God

Isaiah the prophet says,

“This is what the Lord says—

Israel’s King and Redeemer, the Lord Almighty: I am the first

and I am the last; apart from me there is no God. Who then is

like me? Let him proclaim it. Let him declare and lay out before

me what has happened since I established my ancient people,

and what is yet to come—yes, let him foretell what will come.

Do not tremble, do not be afraid. Did I not proclaim this and

foretell it long ago? You are my witnesses. Is there any God be-

sides me? No there is no other Rock; I know not one”

(Isa.

44:6-8).

Here we see that the Last is God.

The Last Is Creator

The following is also from Isaiah,

“Listen to me, Jacob, Is-

rael, whom I have called: I am he; I am the first and I am the

last. My own hand laid the foundations of the earth, and my

right hand spread out the heavens”

(Isa. 48:12-13).

One sees here the first and last is the Creator.
