As Jesus begins to reveal Himself to you, He will introduce Himself as the Beginning and the End, the Aleph and the Tav (Hebrew), the One who was, who is, and who is to come, the Almighty.
First and foremost, God wants and needs you to know that He is with you from the beginning of your life, to its end, and through every event in between and that there is no power that can overcome you because He is the Almighty God. This is a part of His character that He wants deeply embedded in your conscience so that nothing you face in this world will be able to move you from your faith in Him and your union with Him. Tests, trials and persecutions will come, which He reveals throughout the Book of Revelation, and knowing that He is with you becomes an anchor for your soul to hold onto.
Remember, Jesus is the lover of your soul. That means He is the lover of your thoughts, your emotions, your will, your intellect, etc. He LOVES everything that goes on inside you. He has chosen to live there and to shine His light upon all you do so that you can find your way to the highest throne and take up your position in heaven with Him.
This revelation or appearing of Jesus is crucial to your walk and growth in Him. So often the temptation to doubt that God is with you and for you is challenged by tribulation (pressure caused by anxiety, burdens and trouble). When doubt comes it is tempting to come to the Father in anxiety which comes simply because we don’t know Jesus intimately in our thought life as the Beginning and the End of everything. Carefully consider and even take time to learn the following Scripture by heart.
Psalm 139:1-6 (TPT)
Lord you know everything there is to know about me. You’ve examined my innermost being with your loving gaze.
You perceive every movement of my heart and soul and understand my every thought before it even enters my mind.
You are so intimately aware of me Lord. You read my heart like an open book and You know all the words I’m about to speak before I even start a sentence! You know every step before my journey even begins!
You’ve gone into my future to prepare the way, and in kindness you follow behind me to spare me from the harm of my past. With Your hand of love upon my life, you impart a Father’s blessing to me.
This is just to wonderful, deep, and incomprehensible! Your understanding of me brings me wonder and strength.
John also wrote other letters to the church where he revealed God as being the God of love. Jesus came to reveal the Father as the God of LOVE. Note, the Father was not revealed in the Old Testament. Jesus came to demonstrate the love of the Father and the Holy Spirit establishes the Father’s love for you within you. Jesus revealed the Father, but the Father also revealed His Son and they both revealed the Holy Spirit who is the SPIRIT OF LOVE. God is the God of LOVE and He is the same yesterday, today and forever. God’s love for ALL humanity needs to be the foundation upon which every revelation of Jesus is built upon.
He is LOVE from beginning to end. He loved you in the past, He loves you now and He always will love you!
And LOVE conquers ALL. And it is God’s LOVE that will conquer the world and bring peace on earth and goodwill towards ALL men.
Jesus will conquer the world through His love as it is established in the heart of His Church and the heart of every believer.
