I AM

I have always loved God’s response to Moses at the Burning Bush.  Moses asked His name and God said I AM.  Don’t ya just love it.  The One and Only chose a name that the Israelites wouldn’t say aloud – – I AM.  The Almighty chose a name that I have yet to find anyone else ever has – – I AM.  I AM is used over 700 times in the Word.

The Hebrew word for I AM is YHWH or Yahweh.  The vowels were added to make it pronounceable.  It is God’s personal, given to Himself, name.  The word actually means “I am who I am” or “I will be who I will be.  I most English translations it is printed in all caps, LORD.

The ‘I AM’ scriptures of Jesus show different characteristics of who He is:

I Am the Bread of LIfe

I am the gate

I am the good shepherd

I am the Light of the World

I am the Resurrection

I am the Vine

I am the Way

th (4)

Jesus divine nature is revealed in John 8:58 He says, Before Abraham was, I AM.

The I AM is for us.  HE IS the Alpha and Omega!!!

Ah, LORD, God, You are my Bread, the Gate to Eternity, my protecting Shepherd, my light in this dark, dark world, the Resurrection and Life, the Vine, the only Truth that matters.  Fill me to overflowing with Your Spirit today, guide me as only You can.  Make it so, Lord!
