Jesus describes Himself with three pairs of titles. All three sets of titles affirm the same thing: that Jesus is eternal (1:4, 8, 17; 2:8; 21:6). The assertion of His eternity means that we can count on Him fulfilling His promise. He will deliver on what He promises. Jesus consummates and concludes all things. He is God almighty.
 
Jesus is God’s last word to us.
“God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they” (Hebrews 1:1-4).
Principle:
God will be true to His promises.
Application:
We can count on Jesus to be true to Himself. He will deliver on His promises. We have a title to eternity because of Christ. We know that when we arrive in Heaven, God will welcome us.
