O is for Omega

This April on Sue’s Trifles the theme is the names of God.  There may be more than one name for some of the letters.  There may be others I have omitted.  I hope that by going through the alphabet together we may learn more about the nature of God who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Letter O

 

Omega is the last letter in the Greek alphabet.  It is written Ω as a capital (upper case) or ω (lower case).

In the last book of the New Testament known as Revelation (or The Book of Revelation) the writer, John, describes what God has revealed to him.  Revelation 1:8 includes the words, “I am the Alpha and the Omega” and 1:17 “I am the First and the Last.”

Alpha is the first letter in the Greek alphabet.  There is a very good introduction to Christianity – the Alpha course.  It concentrates on the aspects of Christianity, which all Churches agree about.

Omniscient is a description of God.  He alone knows everything.  (That is what omniscient means).  There are examples of the extent of his knowledge in the Psalms.  One of my favourites is Psalm 139, which describes how God knows us from our conception.  Another is Psalm 8, which describes the night sky and God’s care for people.  It ends with praise to God’s majestic name.

Omnipotent is another description of God.  It means the same as AlmightyOmni means all and potent means powerful or mighty.
