"You" and Alpha & Omega

        "As man is, God once was; as God is, man may become."

--- Joseph Smith, Jr.

        The Alphabetic word studies from the scriptures, especially the Bible, verify a core landmark theology revealed through the prophet Joseph Smith, that "as man is, God once was, and as God is, man may become."

See listing of Biblical Scriptures affirming that man has the divine potential (throug grace) and is invited by God to become as He is.

"You" in Hebrew is:   wpe5.jpg (1708 bytes)(spelled:  aleph, taw)

wpe5.jpg (1708 bytes)aleph aleph is the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet, and wpe5.jpg (1708 bytes)taw taw is the last (the omega word).   This provides yet another verification that as children of deity (i.e. of Heavenly Father & Heavenly Mother), we have within us the potential to become as our Heavenly parents are:  "alpha and omega" -- it's written in the very meaning of the word "you"!

Deriv. (5206), adoption. Syn. (5043), a child. Ant. (3962), father; (1118), a parent.

If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use."

Schopenhauer
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.
