Jesus Christ said, “Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense with me, to repay each one for what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.” (Rev. 22:10-13, English Standard Version)
After John witnesses the mind-bending events leading to the end of the world, the angel of Christ summarizes what that means for us in the ever-present Today: We will live or die by our choices. One path excludes others, and if that choice turns out to be disagreeable, the only way to get past it is to choose a different route.
