History as a Theological Science

 History is not a social science, it is a theological science.   It means that God, having created all things, has ordained what history is.  He is the focal point of it: creation, incarnation, second coming.  Those are the three main events of history:  the beginning, and the end, “The Alpha and the Omega,” our Lord said.  That’s how He identified Himself and when you say alpha and omega, you’re saying the a to the z.  So our Lord said I am the a to the z.  I am the Alpha and the Omega—I am the everything, the beginning and the end, the controller, the determiner, the Lord!  I am He who was and is and is to come.
