The Landlord of the Universe

I am the Alpha and the Omega, says the Lord God, He who is and who was and who is coming, the Almighty.

Rev. 1:8
The Almighty God

The book of Revelation tells us that God is the Almighty God (Rev. 1:8; 19:6, 15). In the Hebrew language, the title God means the mighty One, the One who is powerful. But in Revelation we see that God is not only mighty, but Almighty. He is powerful in every way, in every aspect, in everything, and with everyone. God’s title means that He is the Almighty One.

The Lord

This Almighty One is the Lord. Being the Lord means that He is the owner of the universe. We may say that He is the landlord of the whole universe. He is the Ruler, the authority, in this universe.

What we or others say means nothing. But what God says means everything because He is the Lord. When He says, “Yes,” it means yes, and when He says, “No,” it means no.

God is not only the Lord, the owner, and the authority; He is also the Master. The whole universe, including the angels and all human beings, is under Him. We have a Master who possesses us.

Before I was saved, I did not know to whom I belonged. But now I can shout, “God is my Master, the One who possesses me. Hallelujah, He is my Lord!”
