I am God, and there is none like Me, declaring the end from the beginning. (Isaiah 46:10)
In the Old and New Testament, the beginning is paired with an end. Life is going somewhere, and that destiny is determined by God Himself. Creation is initiated with a future goal. What is announced in Genesis 1 is accomplished in Revelation 22. At the commencement of the creation story, this independent statement declares that the Sovereign Lord controls the events of the universe from the beginning to the end, from the alpha to the omega, from the first to the last. This reality is the hope of every Christian.
As people following Christ, we all experience stop and go, arrival and departure, life and death. We know about living in between pivotal moments. It’s easy to believe that God is not at work in the ordinary. But He is! Through my book Living in the In-Between Times, you’ll discover how God speaks to you, how you can respond, and the significance of decisive commitment to the will of God.
