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 3:14
When Moses asked God to identify himself, God simply stated “I AM WHO I AM” or also translated “ I will be who I will be”. God is telling Moses I will identify or manifest myself into whatever I want to. At this time, Moses probably had the closest relationship with God than anyone else had.
Fast forward almost 1500 years, and God becomes flesh being born of a virgin in a manger. Nobody expected the King of Kings to be born in a more humbling spot, but he lowered himself below the angels to bring hope for the hopeless and set the captives free
Many will say Jesus never said he was God, but those who understand the scriptures, knew exactly what Jesus was declaring when he made the seven “I AM” statements. The religious leaders knew exactly what he was saying, this is why they immediately wanted to charge him with blasphemy and stone him.
Jesus also said “I AM , the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end” (Revelation 22:13) Jesus wasn’t just a child born in a manger, he is “Immanuel” God in the flesh who came down to bring Heaven and Earth together, to save the world. If you want to know who God is, you must come through Jesus Christ Amen!
