Jesus: the Beginning and the End

"Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:" (Isaiah 46: 10)

"Counsel" is based on the word "Counsellor", which we find in this prophecy:

"6For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace." (Isaiah 9: 6)

Jesus Christ is our Wisdom (1 Corinthians 1: 30), and He is our righteousness (2 Corinthians 5: 21), as well as our favor (John 1: 17)

Jesus Christ is the same  yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13: 8), and He is the Beginning and the End of all things (Revelation 1: 8) --

"[Jesus] is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17And he is before all things, and by him all things consist." (Colossians 1: 15-17)

As we grow in grace and knowledge of the Lord (2 Peter 3: 18), let us see Christ Jesus in all of His fullness, then we can have no doubt as we boldly enter the throne of grace to ask for anything that we need (Hebrews 4: 16)
