Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye? John 18:4
Jesus knew the time had come, the time for him to fulfill Gods will and take on the debt of sin for all mankind. Jesus wants to know Whom see ye? Or Who seeks me? Are you seeking Jesus to be your Lord and Savior? Or are you seeking to kill Jesus just like the world thought they had done?
They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them. As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground. John 18:5-6
Notice as soon as Jesus identified himself as I AM, they all fell to the ground, why? Because they knew in there hearts he is The Great I AM, the Son of the Living God, however Jesus gave himself up as a ransom for the world
Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way: That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spake, Of them which thou gavest me have I lost none. John 18:7-9
Jesus knew he was the only one, the only one worthy to be called the Lamb of God, that had to be sacrificed to save us all from sin and death. Jesus did his part, now are you seeking him? Do you really know Jesus Christ? Is he your personal Lord and Savior? Whom Seek Ye in Jesus Name Amen
