In 1994 my father preached this message at Faith Crusaders Church in Urbana, Illinois. Though he went to heaven in 2007, his words are yet inspiring.
"Who is He in yonder stall,
At whose feet the shepherds fall?
'Tis the Lord, O wondrous story!
'Tis the Lord, The King of Glory!
At His feet, we humbly fall,
Crown Him, Crown Him
Lord of All!"
"John to the seven church which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits (the Holy Spirit) which are before his throne; And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. Behold, he cometh with clouds, and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, which is to come, the Almighty."
"I am Alpha and Omega! It is as if He had said, "I am A to Z," for Alpha is the first, and Omega the last letter of the Greek alphabet. He is our everything.
If He is the A to Z, then He is the Second Adam. The first Adam forfeited our life; the second Adam reclaimed it for us. He is our Advocate, He is the Almighty God, the Everlasting Father, He is the Amen. He is the Apostle of our Profession, He is the Arm of the Lord, He is the Author and Finisher of our Faith, He is the Author of Eternal Salvation!
He is the Beginning of the Creation of God, the Beloved Son. He is the Blessed and only Potentate. He is the BRANCH. He is the Bread of Life.
He is the Captain of our Salvation, He is the Chief Shepherd, He is the Christ of God, He is the Consolation of Israel, He is the Chief Cornerstone, He is the Counselor, He is the Creator.
He is the Dayspring. He is the Deliverer, He is the Desired of All Nations. He is the Door!
He is the Elect of God, He is the Everlasting Father, He is the Faithful Witness, the First and the Last. He is the First Begotten, and He is the Forerunner that is entered within the veil.
He is the Glory of God, He is God Himself Incarnate, He is God Blessed forever. He is the Good Shepherd! He is the Governor. He is the Great High Priest.
He is the Head of the Church, the Heir of All Things. He is the Holy Child, He is the Holy One, the Holy One of God, the Holy One of Israel. He is the Horn of Our Salvation.
He is the Great I AM. He is the Image of God. He is Immanuel, God with us!
He is Jehovah, He is Jesus our Savior. He is Jesus of Nazareth, He is the Judge of Israel, He is the Just One.
He is the King, He is the King of the Ages, He is the King of the Jews. He is the King of all Kings, and the King of Saints!
He is the Lawgiver. He is the Lamb of God that taketh away the sin of the world. He is our Leader, our Life. He is the Light of the World. He is the Lion of the Tribe of Judah and He is the Lord of All. He is the Lord of Glory. He is the Lord of Lords. He is the Lord our Righteousness.
He is a Man of Sorrows, and acquainted with grief. He is our Mediator. He is the Messenger of the Covenant, the Messiah. He is the Mighty God, He is the Mighty One. He is the bright and Morning Star.
He is The Nazarene.
He is the Only Begotten Son. He is our Passover.
He is the Prince of Kings. He is the Prince of life. He is the Prince of Peace, and He is our Prophet, Priest and King!
He is the Quencher of thirst for the Water of Life.
He is the Redeemer, the Resurrection and the Life. He is our Rock and our Salvation. He is the Root of David, and the Rose of Sharon.
He is our Savior. He is the Seed of the Woman spoken of in Genesis, and the great Shepherd and Bishop of our souls. He is the Son of the Blessed, the Son of David, the Son of God. He is the Son of Man. He is the Son of Righteousness.
He is the True Light. He is the True Vine. He is the TRUTH.
He is the Unleavened Bread that came down from Heaven.
He is the Vine of whom we are but branches.
He is the true Witness.
And I violate the spelling to say, He is the One who speaks from the more Xcellent Glory!
He is the Word of God, made manifest that we should behold His glory, as of the glory of the Father, full of grace and truth.
He is One who is Yea and Amen!
And what to do for a "Z"? Why He is Savior of Zacchaeus, and of all who have fallen into the depths and dregs of sin! Respectable sinners. Disreputable sinners. Jesus Christ is Savior of us all.
"Zacchaeus, come down. I am going to your house today!" Glorious invitation, and issued yet again: "Come down in repentance and faith! Jesus will go home with you today!"
