The First and the Last
In chapter 43 we saw "Apart from me there is no Savior" In chapter 44 we see "Apart from me there is no God". What I really enjoy seeing in this passage is a phrase about the only God that is also applied to Christ.
Isaiah 44:6 "This is what the LORD says—Israel's King and Redeemer, the LORD Almighty: I am the first and I am the last; apart from me there is no God.Jesus stands at the beginning and the end. He is the First and the Last.
Rev 1: 17 When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. Then he placed his right hand on me and said: "Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last. 18I am the Living One; I was dead, and behold I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.
