THE “I AM” — Father God / Jesus Christ, Son of God When God spoke to Moses through the burning bush, God declared that He is “I AM”.God also declared that He is “The Lord, The God of the fathers of the Israelites, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” God said that “I AM” is His Name forever.“God said to Moses, “ I am who I am.” And he said, “Say this to the people of Israel, ‘ I am has sent me to you.’” God also said to Moses, “Say this to the people of Israel, ‘The Lord, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you.’ This is my name forever, and thus I am to be remembered throughout all generations.”‭‭Exodus‬ ‭3:14-15‬ ‭ESV‬‬When on earth, Jesus Christ declared that He is “I AM”.“Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am.””‭‭John‬ ‭8:58‬ ‭ESV‬‬Jesus used “ I AM” in a number of instances:I AM the Bread of LifeI AM the Light of the World I AM the doorI AM the good shepherdI AM the Son of GodI AM the Resurrection and the LifeI AM the Way, the Truth and the Life“Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.”‭‭John‬ ‭6:35‬ ‭ESV‬‬“Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.””‭‭John‬ ‭8:12‬ ‭ESV‬‬“As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.””‭‭John‬ ‭9:5‬ ‭ESV‬‬“I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. John 10:9-10 ESVI am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.”‭‭John‬ ‭10:11‬ ‭ESV‬‬“do you say of him whom the Father consecrated and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’? If I am not doing the works of my Father, then do not believe me; but if I do them, even though you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me and I am in the Father.””‭‭John‬ ‭10:36-38‬ ESV“Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live,”‭‭John‬ ‭11:25‬ ‭ESV‬‬“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”‭‭John‬ ‭14:6‬ ‭ESV‬‬Then in the Revelation of Jesus Christ, given to Apostle John He states:I AM the Alpha and OmegaI AM the AlmightyI AM the Beginning and the EndI AM the First and the Last““I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.””‭‭Revelation‬ ‭1:8‬ ‭ESV‬‬“And he said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment.”‭‭Revelation‬ ‭21:6‬ ‭ESV‬‬“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.””‭‭Revelation‬ ‭22:13‬ ‭ESV‬‬The Written Word of God declares over and over again that the Living Word of God, Jesus Christ, is truly God, equal to and same as, the God of the Old Testament. He always has been, and always will be. HALLELUJAH!!!
