Revelation 1:8 (a) In this passage our Lord JESUS Himself applies this name to Himself as He does also in verse Revelation 1:11. In Revelation 21:6, He again applies that name to Himself and also in chapter Revelation 22:13. He wants us to remember and never forget that He is the beginning of all literature. There would be no such thing as education, or understanding, or learning, were it not that He gave man the ability to learn, and then unveiled to man's mind the multitude of matters which we call education. All information about creation has come from Him. Those who shut Him out of their lives and thinking are in darkness, or return to darkness. He is the author of the solar system and of all chemicals. He is the designer of the earth and the heavens. He originated the plan of salvation.

He is the author of every kind of life in the vegetable kingdom, the animal kingdom and the human kingdom. CHRIST JESUS is first, He is before all in every department of the universe. As Alpha is the first letter of the Greek alphabet, so CHRIST is the first cause of everything that exists.
