Jesus is more important than anyone else in history. He is THE ONE whom history is all about, as He personally told the Apostle John:
I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. (Revelation 22:13 NIV)
The letters “Alpha” and “Omega” are the first and the last letters respectively in the Greek alphabet. So Jesus is essentially saying “I am the ‘A’ and the ‘Z’.” He is claiming to be the person who initiated the Universe, and the one who will conclude it’s purpose.
Jesus Began our universe by actually creating it. Jesus is God and has dwelt with God from eternity past:
He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. (John 1:2-3 NIV)
Jesus will END our universe by actually destroying it, once there is no longer any use for it. There will be a new heaven and Earth for believers. They will dwell with Jesus, their Savior for ever. Those who do not believe and repent of their sins will be cast into the Lake of Fire, which burns forever.
Ultimately, every person has a date with Jesus. Either He will be your personal savior, or he will be your personal judge. God loves you and wants you to repent. The choice is yours.
