Revelation 22:13 Meaning and Commentary

Revelation 1:13

I am Alpha and Omega (See Gill on Revelation 1:8). These characters are all put together here, which are before used in ( Revelation 1:8 Revelation 1:11 ) ( 21:6 ) and are very pertinently mentioned in this place, when all promises and prophecies, relating to the glorious kingdom of Christ, were just finishing, and that itself was ready to appear, in which Christ alone should be exalted, the mystery of God would be completed, and time itself be no more. The Ethiopic version adds, "the beginning and end of days", or time. A testimony this, of the deity, eternity, infinity, and perfection of Christ.

Revelation 22:13 In-Context

11 Let evildoers do their worst and the dirty-minded go all out in pollution, but let the righteous maintain a straight course and the holy continue on in holiness."
12 "Yes, I'm on my way! I'll be there soon! I'm bringing my payroll with me. I'll pay all people in full for their life's work.
13 I'm A to Z, the First and the Final, Beginning and Conclusion.
14 "How blessed are those who wash their robes! The Tree of Life is theirs for good, and they'll walk through the gates to the City.
15 But outside for good are the filthy curs: sorcerers, fornicators, murderers, idolaters - all who love and live lies.
