Moses said to God, “Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ Then what shall I tell them?” God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I AM has sent me to you.’ Exodus 3:13-14
When God revealed this to Moses it probably made no sense to him at the time, but what God was doing was laying down the foundation for the prophecy of our Lord Jesus Christ. Let’s look and see how this prophecy was fulfilled.
Jesus answered, “I AM” the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6
When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I AM “ the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12
Then Jesus declared,” I AM” the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. John 6:35
“Very truly I tell you,” Jesus answered, “before Abraham was born,” I AM” John 8:58
I AM” the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture. John 10:9
“I AM” the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. John 10:11
“I AM” the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. John 15:1
Jesus said to her,” I AM” the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; John 11:25
“I AM” the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. Revelation 22:13
Its clear Jesus was identifying himself as “The Great I AM” as was revealed to Moses. When you read these scriptures the prophecies of the Old Testament not only are fulfilled but there meanings are revealed to us thru Jesus Christ.
Jesus is everything for us, he has giving us everything even though we don’t deserve it. If you don’t really know Jesus I suggest you study the above scriptures and get to know your King. He is THE GREAT I AM in Jesus Name Amen
We will not hide them from their children, shewing to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done. For he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children: That the generation to come might know them, even the children whichshould be born; who should arise and declare them to their children Psalms 78:4-6
America is crumbling and the reason is we forgot about God, the God that we founded this country on has been removed from everything. We don’t remember how God blessed us and made us prosper among all the other nations, and we don’t teach our children anymore about there Creator and Heavenly Father.
That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments: And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation; a generation that set not their heart aright, and whose spirit was not stedfast with God. Psalms 78:7-8
America no longer trusts in God but trusts in money and greed. But soon will find out God is the beginning and the end, from everlasting to everlasting. We have become a rebellious nation that has rejected God and turned away from his Word and commandments
For all this they sinned still, and believed not for his wondrous works. Therefore their days did he consume in vanity, and their years in trouble. When he slew them, then they sought him: and they returned and inquired early after God Psalm 78:33-35.
Judgement is coming upon America, the nation he once provided for has now rejected him. Years of trouble are ahead for America, God will unleash his power and all will know he is the Almighty Living God.
And they remembered that God was their rock, and the high God their redeemer. Nevertheless they did flatter him with their mouth, and they lied unto him with their tongues. For their heart was not right with him, neither were they stedfast in his covenant. Yet he was merciful; he forgave their iniquities and did not destroy them. Time after time he restrained his anger and did not stir up his full wrath. Psalms 78:36-38
Gods mercy endures forever, its not to late for America, if we repent and turn back to God he will forgive us of our transgressions and restore our covenant with him.
Again and again they put God to the test; they vexed the Holy One of Israel. They did not remember his power– the day he redeemed them from the oppressor, Psalms 78:41-42
America keeps changing Gods laws , testing the Almighty living God creator of the Heavens and The Earth. America doesn’t remember the years or prosperity God had provided them, the victories in war against evil allies, all of this has been forgotten by America
He gave his people over to the sword; he was furious with his inheritance. Fire consumed their young men, and their young women had no wedding songs; Psalms 78:62-63
Gods protection for America will be lifted, just like Israel we will be devoured by our enemies. Unless we return to God there will be no future for America. Wake up America, Time to repent, Time to Return to God , and he will restore this great nation in Jesus Name Amen
Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: Colossians 1:15
Who is Jesus? Seems like a simple question, but this topic has divided religions, families, and nations. In Colossians Paul gives a perfect description of who Jesus is. How does Paul know? Because he met Jesus face to face on the Road to Damascus.
First we learn Jesus is the image of God, The Word became Flesh and dwelt among us. Remember Jesus said he and God are one, this is the Trinity. Nobody gets to God without going thru Jesus because Jesus is God in the Flesh.
For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. Colossians 1:16-17
We learn two more things from these scriptures.
- Jesus created The Heavens and The Earth
- Jesus is King of Kings and rules over all nations and governments
Notice this scripture says all things were created by him, this corresponds with John 1:1 “In the beginning was The Word, and the Word was with God and The Word was God “
Jesus is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. He was here before everything and he will be here evermore. He is sitting on the throne and rules The Earth.
And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; Colossians 1:18-19
Jesus is the head of the Church, there is no other man or authority above him. If you’re not following his Word you’re following a false religion. If it’s not in The Bible it a man made doctrine or ritual
And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. Colossians 1:20
Jesus came down to Earth, lowered himself to become an atonement sacrifice for our sins. He loves us enough to leave his throne as King and become The Lamb of God. There is no greater love than this.
Read these scriptures, meditate on these scriptures, this is who Jesus is. He is the same today, yesterday, and forever in Jesus Name Amen
To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:31-32
This statement by Jesus is very powerful in many ways, it can be broken down in 3 parts:
Are you truly a Christian? You can go to Church every Sunday but unless you actually know the Bible and are applying it to your life, your attendance means nothing. Jesus brought us these teachings for a reason, to save your life.
Jesus is the Word and the Word is truth- The Word became Flesh. We know Jesus is the Word and we know the Word is Truth. Jesus is sinless and is not capable of lying. Trust in Jesus he is the truth.
We are all slaves to sin without Jesus- We all fall short and are sinners. Only by the blood of Jesus are we set free from the chains of sin.
They answered him, “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?” Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. John 8:33-34
Many of us will look at our life and say I’m Free, I’m not a slave to anything. But if you analyze your life you will realize your probably a slave to many things. Were slaves to money, slaves to drugs, slaves to sex, slaves to power. Until we become transformed and stop conforming to the world, we will always be slaves to sin.
Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:35-36
We are all Children of God, we are made in his image. He loved us enough to sacrifice his only Son. Thru Jesus we are set free, we are slaves no more to Satan.
You are doing the works of your own father.” “We are not illegitimate children,” they protested. “The only Father we have is God himself.” Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I have come here from God. I have not come on my own; God sent me. John 8:40-41
If you are a Child of God, then why are you doing the works of Satan? This is what Jesus questioned the Jews when they kept trying to kill him. The same goes for ourselves, if your going to be a Christian, then follow Jesus
Once you know Jesus then you know the truth and you are truly free from the sins of this world in Jesus name Amen
Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he wasthe son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours. Genesis 37:3
Joseph had favor with his father and was giving a special gift, a Coat of many Colors, this gift made his brothers so jealous they plotted to kill him and eventually sold him into slavery.
We all have been given a gift from our Heavenly Father, maybe you have been blessed with a special talent or skill, or maybe you have been blessed with a family or prosperity. Whatever your “Coat of Many Colors” is it makes people around you jealous or maybe even your own family is now against you. Don’t lose heart God has a plan for you
Come, and let us sell him to the Ishmeelites, and let not our hand be upon him; for he is our brother and our flesh. And his brethren were content Genesis 37:27
Joseph’s brothers sold him into slavery and eventually he ended up in prison, however God was always with Joseph and turned his tragedies into triumphs. By the grace of God , Joseph ended up being in charge even though he was a Hebrew slave.
Don’t let your current circumstances defeat you , just like Joseph God is with you and wont forsake you. He will make you enemies your footstool to your destiny
And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian. And his master saw that the LORD was with him, and that the LORD made all that he did to prosper in his hand Genesis 39:2-3
No matter what happened to Joseph God made him prosper, man tried to make him a slave and God made him a master, man then tried to make him a prisoner and God made him a ruler, Man can’t stop you from your divine destiny as long as you keep following God
And Joseph said unto his brethren, Come near to me, I pray you. And they came near. And he said, I am Joseph your brother, whom ye sold into Egypt. Now therefore be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that ye sold me hither: for God did send me before you to preserve life. Genesis 45:4-5
Joseph had every right to hate his brothers, but he stayed in peace and forgave them. He knew the no weapon formed against him would prosper, whatever was meant for his harm God would use for his good.
Are you burdened today by your “Coat of Many Colors” the gift giving to you by God? Just remember if God is for us who can be against us, embrace your gifts and use them to glorify God and everything you do will work out in Jesus Name Amen
