The 12-, 22-, 33-, 42-letter Names of God
In the prophecy of the Book of Revelation, the Christ famously refers to himself as the Alpha and Omega three times.
‘I am the Alpha and the Omega,’ says the Lord God, ‘who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.’
He who was seated on the throne said, ‘I am making everything new!’ Then he said, ‘Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.’ He said to me: ‘It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End.’
‘Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. […] I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.’
Notably, the Christian name, David, comes up again in connection with Jesus
John the Divine — who wrote the Book of Revelation (and was an incarnate of the Jesus soul) — was clearly trying to impress upon the reader the importance of Alpha and Omega – the Greek letters for ‘A’ and ‘Z’ — by repeating the phrase, not once but twice. This may not therefore simply be symbolic of the beginning and end but could be seen as a direction to help decipher the actual name of the Christ, who says these words.
The following Names of God all contain variations of Alpha and Omega – the beginning and end letters of the Alphabet and my name:
