Numbers 32:1-42; Proverbs 28:1-28; Luke 4:1-15
Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.” And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega.” Revelation 21:5-6, NKJV
“It is done” is in a rare Greek verb tense that denotes a completed action in the past with timeless results. Wuest translates it: “I make all things new in quality…Write at once, because these words are trustworthy and dependable…They have come to pass and stand accomplished”. Only the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end, can achieve in the past, what lasts for eternity and makes all things new in between! —W. A. H.
When He from His lofty throne stooped to do and die,
Everything was fully done; hearken to His cry!
“It is finished!” Yes, indeed, finished, for all eternity. —James Proctor
