These were some of the first words of the Lord Jesus to the apostle John when, on the Lord’s day, he found himself in the Spirit. John had already registered a word from God the Father, that he was the Alpha and the Omega, in verse 8. Alpha is the first letter of the Greek alphabet; omega, the last.About himself Jesus affirmed the same thing that the Father said about himself. And the Lord Jesus is he who puts his right hand upon the fainting John. The One who Lives is the same as he who touches and revives his people.
