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.
